During a price task in series 7, Rhod brings a video that shows him in Greg's closet and films Greg sleeping. Rhod and Greg are friends, and Greg calls it creepy but that was the point of the task (bring the creepiest thing).

Little spiders shown very occasionally in the lead up to tasks from S3 onwards. In S5 or S6, the title card has a spider in. In S10E10, the first task is around putting shoes onto a giant fake spider in the garden. The spider however looks incredibly realistic.

There are a few mentions of clowns in the series. In series 3, episode 2 (The Dong and the Gong), Paul Chowdhry dresses as a clown in a task attempt. Meanwhile, series 14 features a circus theme in the Taskmaster house, complete with clowns.

As a comedy show, Greg Davis and Alex Horne will often address the audience as part of their routine, however they do explicitly mention the ad breaks that occur within the show, and during most ad breaks, either Greg or Alex will wave to the audience. While it is understandable for the most part (as in most seasons there is a live studio audience) these moments directly break the fourth wall to the audience at home.

In the season with Ian sterling and Joe Thomas there is a task where they must create the most realistic injury from food, some are quite realistic. It would be easy to skip this task when it is introduced. In the same season there is a task to make the tastiest dust and both sian Gibson and Paul sinha cut themselves whilst grating food
