  • Dangerously Close Shave: The electric razor challenge involves this:
    • Sylvester simply scares the razor off.
    • Daffy's head is almost shaved clean, but he simply acts like an army instructor.
    • Sam's moustache is shaved clean off, resulting in his loss as it took him 20 years to grow it.

    • Daffy gets a sandwich with a jalapeño in it. All that does is result in the below trope.
    • Sam gets a sandwiich with a grub in it. He's unfazed by eating it.
    • Sylvester gets a finger sandwich, which unknown to him was made with his own finger. He cries in pain after biting into it.
  • Fire-Breathing Diner: After Daffy ate the super-hot jalapeño sandwich, he breathed fire at Granny.
  • Game Show Host: Granny.
  • Multiple Endings: In the original interactive version, each of the three endings could be achieved by leaving one of the three characters as the winner.
