Do you feel the power of the Gladiators?
Can you face the challenge of the champions?
Do you have the courage of a hero?
Do you have the will and the skill?
Do you have the speed, the strength, the heart to be a winner?
It's not for beginners.
Deep down in your soul.
Are you a Gladiator?
The lyrics for the opening theme of the show

Gladiators is a British Game Show with physical challenges, mostly pitting contestants ("Contenders") against the titular "Gladiators" - a squad of athletes and bodybuilders.

Tropes for these versions can be found on their own pages.

The 2008-09 version provides examples of:

    Sky's Gladiators 
  • Hotter and Sexier: Skimpier outfits and stuff taking place over water...
  • Heel: Wolf wannabe/Expy Oblivion, now seen in TNA as Brutus Magnus — where he is more often than not a Heel. Tornado too.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Inferno. Really, any female gladiator that isn't Battleaxe, who still counts to a lesser degree.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Spartan
  • Hulk Speak: Goliath
