  • Something blows up.
  • Somebody hurts themselves.
    • Drink twice if it's somebody other than Adam or Tory.
  • Adam does an impression of Jamie.
  • Adam does a Wildlife Commentary Spoof about "the wild Hyneman".

  • Grant builds a robot.
  • Somebody throws up.
    • Two if it's Grant. Again.
  • Anyone is seen drinking.
  • Adam is seen in a costume.
    • Two if someone from the Build Team is wearing one.
    • Finish your drink if Jamie is wearing one. Shotgun another if Jamie doesn't complain about having to wear it.
    • If the costume is a necessary component for the test in question, no drink is required.note 
  • There's a building montage.
  • The Narrator goes into Pungeon Master mode.
    • Two drinks if it goes on for over two minutes.

  • You see the Busted/Plausible/Confirmed sign.
  • The "Mythbusters" sign is on fire.
  • Something built for a previous myth is recycled/repurposed for the current myth.
    • But only take a sip if it's a revisit episode.

  • They remove, bypass or otherwise disable a safety device or system in order to get the results they want.
  • They build a test rig that is inherently dangerous. (tests involving guns or explosives don't count here)
    • Take a second drink if they comment on the hazards.
    Grant: "Decapitation hazard!"
  • Drink for anytime you see someone fire a gun.
  • Finish your drink when tested object gets utterly destroyed.
