"24 contestants! 8 teams! 1 prize!"
Game Show Tropes present:
- Celebrity Edition: Inverted. The Gameshow actually began as this in the Pilot Season, and switched to having community contestants starting in Season 1.
- Deadly Game: Due to being set inside a video game, health and safety are the first thing to go out the window.
- Rules Spiel: Before every game, the commentators explain the rules.
- Game Show Host: Noxite, one of the Gameshow's founders.
- The Announcer: Two of them: Johnny Smooth and Bobby Groove.
- Replacement Goldfish: The announcers were originally Johnny Smooth and Scotty Love, however Scotty's player moved to Australia and was unable to make recording sessions, and had to be replaced.
This show provides examples of:
- Aborted Arc: The Pilot Season, which ran for 6 episodes, initially intended to run for 15.
- Continuity Reboot: Season 1 (previously known as Season 2).
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: It's a Game Show, run by the Noxcrew.
- Flawless Victory: Ungentlemen going undefeated in Season 1, winning all 7 of their games in a row.
- Interface Spoiler: Seemingly played straight at first, when the first three winning teams all advanced up the tournament ladder to become teams of the same color, causing fans to say that you could tell who would win by the colors on the chart alone. Then averted when Ungentlemen defeated Grenade Train, changing from blue to yellow. Noxite then confirmed that it was always just a coincidence.
- Large Ham Announcer: Two of them, in fact!
- No OSHA Compliance: Any of the 'Factory' type games.
- Pilot: The Pilot Season, originally known as 'Season 1'.
- Put on a Bus: Antlia, the original player of the Butcher, left the show after the Pilot Season Episode 3, due to leaving to join the military. He was played by Jyoda in Episode 4. By Episode 5, the character of the Butcher was removed entirely.
- Scotty Love also left the show between the Pilot Season and Season 1, due to his player, iBuze moving to Australia.
- The Bus Came Back: Antlia returned as the Butcher for Season 1.
- Small Name, Big Ego: In the Grenade Train intro video, ven200 claims to be the most intelligent member of the team, who joined the Gameshow to show how good he was. In the actual matchup, however, he kept making mistakes like opening his inventory immediately before combat in Factory, ultimately ending with Grenade Train being the only team to never win a single game.
- Stupid Statement Dance Mix: MrCraftman96's "Oh my god, these are all classics!"
- The Butcher: The Butcher.
- You Look Familiar: In the Pilot Season, AntVenom played as both a member of the Ninjas in Lemon Trousers and as a member of the Dreamy Crafters.
