I'm sure it comes as no surprise that Legends had it's fair share of interesting coincidences. Here are some of the ones I've noticed:


And a couple concerning the Broken Wing and Broken Trident episodes:



If you have any others, go ahead and share them with us!

Let's look at all those artifacts with a team color in their name (so no golden artifacts count):

The Imperial Purple Robe of Empress Theodora
The Red Sash of Tokugawa Ieyasu
The Silver Cannonball of Granny Nanny
The Silver Horseshoe of Butch Cassidy
The Silver Saddle Horn of Hannibal

None of them had the appropriate team go after them.  As far as the animal-related artifacts go, the only appropriate one was the Silver Snakes going after the Snake Bracelet of Cleopatra.

All the Purple Parrots victories had a Red-Green-Purple-Silver combination at the Steps of Knowledge.

The Green Monkeys never won when the artifact was in the Shrine of the Silver Monkey.

Here's some more color combination coincidences:

Out of all the 4 episodes that featured the Blue-Orange-Purple-Silver color combination on the Steps of Knowledge:
~ 3 out of those 4 episodes featured Orange vs. Purple in the temple games. (Those episodes being Much Heralded Helmet, Enourmous Feather, and Levitating Dog Leash).
~ Out of those 3 episodes, not only did orange beat pruple all 3 times
~ but 2 of those 3 episodes were victories, (Helmet and Dog Leash).
~ The other episode, (Enourmous Feather), the artifact was grabbed but not brought out in time.
~ The other Blue-Orange-Purple-Silver combination, (The Priceless Portrait), featured the Purple Parrots in the temple games as well, but had Silver Snakes going to the temple.
~ Just like the Enourmous Feather, the team in the Priceless Portrait episode grabbed the artifact, but did not bring it out in time.
(So with that color combination, 2 of those episodes were victories, and 2 of those episodes were unsucessful grabbings). I'll post some more later.

How about:

~Both runs where the frontrunner needed to complete nine room objectives were both Green Monkey runs (Ponce de Leon and the Fountain of Youth and the Very Tall Turban of Ahmed Baba)

~All three Season Two, Layout One runs were Orange Iguanas runs

~Both temple runs that featured the word "Apple" in it were Green Monkey runs (Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata and the Dried Apple Half of William Tell)

That's all I have right now.

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 02, 2009, 03:27:25 PM
Here are some more: (This regards random combinations between Green, Orange, and Purple).

~ It always seemed like whenever it was Red-Green-Orange-Silver on the Steps of Knowledge, it would be Green vs. Orange in the temple games.

~ It always seemed like whenever it was Red-Green-Purple-Silver on the steps, it would be Green vs. Purple in the temple games.

~ It always seemed like when ever it was Red-Green-Orange-Purple on the steps, it would be Orange vs. Purple in the temple games.

(Again, this is amongst Green, Orange, and Purple's color combinations).

Blue Vs. Orange is the color combination in the temple games that occured the least. (Only appeared in Lost Logbooks, Paintbrush, Shriveled Hand, and Walking Stick). Out of those 4 episodes:
~ The only time blue beats orange is in the "Lost Logbooks" episode.
~ Also, the "results" for the temple runs were evenly matched. (Meaning, the teams were caught by three temple guards and ran out of time in 2 episodes each). In "Lost Logbooks" and "Walking Stick," the team was caught by 3 temple guards. And in "Shriveled Hand" and "Paintbrush," the teams ran out of time.

In each season, the last day of production had nothing but Temple Runs where the artifact was at least grabbed (but usually also taken out of the Temple) before time ran out.

OK, another few...

- Both runs where the frontrunner neither grabs the artfiact and runs out of time were Red Jaguars runs
- Both episodes that featured the word "Lucky" in them and featured the Blue Barracudas in the temple (them being Lucky Pig and Lucky Pillow) both had artfacts hidden in the central shaft

Shane (The Very Tall Turban of Ahmed Baba) and James (Ponce de Leon and the Lost Fountain of Youth) co-hold the record for the most room objectives completed, with 9. Coincidentally, they were both Green Monkeys.

The two Temple Runs where only four rooms were entered were both in Layout II.

The first and last episodes ever produced were both Red Jaguars runs and featured a score of 2-1? at the Temple Games.

Dunno if this counts, but The Blue Barracudas from "The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata" broke their gong, and then, almost as if they were being punished, they got disqualified. XD

You can see during the Moat crossing when the spotter sends the Silver Snakes back wrongly.

---

In Season 1, the Red Jaguars were first in the moat a whopping twelve times.  The Purple Parrots were only first one time.

In Season 1, the most common Steps combination was RED-BLUE-GREEN-SILVER, with seven appearances.  RED-GREEN-PURPLE-SILVER, BLUE-GREEN-ORANGE-SILVER, and BLUE-ORANGE-PURPLE-SILVER never occurred.

Silver progressed from the Steps 19 times, Red 18 times, Blue 16 times, and Green, Orange, and Purple each 9 times.

The most common Temple Games matchup was RED-SILVER, appearing six times.  GREEN-PURPLE never happened.

Neither Green, Orange, nor Purple won the Temple Games with only one Pendant that season.
Title: Interesting Coincidences
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on June 10, 2010, 04:05:06 PM
Every team had at least one one-Pendant Temple Run, but three of the teams (Red Jaguars, Green Monkeys, Purple Parrots) only went to the Temple with a single Pendant once.  The Red Jaguars' only one-Pendant run was in Season 1, the Green Monkeys' only one-Pendant run was in Season 2 and the Purple Parrots' only one-Pendant run was in Season 3.

Every season had one production day where there were three wins out of four episodes, but Season 2 was the only one where this day was not the last day of taping (rather, it was the fourth), and this production day for Season 2 was the only one of this kind where the unsuccessful Temple Run didn't even feature an artifact grab.

Season 2, Production Day B.  The Temple Games results for the four episodes are cyclical: the Orange Iguanas beat the Blue Barracudas in "The Walking Stick of Harriet Tubman," the Blue Barracudas beat the Purple Parrots in "The Diary of Dr. Livingstone," the Purple Parrots beat the Red Jaguars in "The Bone Necklace of the Blackfeet Chief" and the Red Jaguars beat the Orange Iguanas in "The Lost Love Letter of Captain John Smith." (Credit goes to notundercovercop327 for pointing this out)

Season 2, Production Day A versus Season 1, Layout IV.  Four Temple Games rounds were taped on each of these days? three featured the same team winning (Blue Barracudas for Layout IV, Orange Iguanas for Season 2 Day A), and the fourth episode for each day featured the Silver Snakes winning.

In every season, one team made it to the Temple for at least a quarter of the season's episodes.  In Season 1 this was the Silver Snakes, with 11 appearances; in Season 2, the Orange Iguanas, with 10 appearances; in Season 3, the Green Monkeys, with 15 appearances.

In every season, at least one team recorded zero Temple victories.  In Season 1, no wins were achieved by the Orange Iguanas or the Purple Parrots; in Season 2, no wins were achieved by the Red Jaguars; in Season 3, no wins were achieved by the Blue Barracudas.

Exactly. :P

The fifth layouts of the first two seasons were the only two layouts where five out of six teams went to the temple (see the overuse of "5" here, folks? :lol:)
Title: Re: Interesting Coincidences
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on April 18, 2013, 10:19:56 PM
*BUMP*

Here's some more I came up with:

- Silver advanced 5/6 times when Red-Blue-Orange-Silver occurred. The only episode (out of that combination) where they go to the temple is "The Secret Map of the Bandit Queen."
- Blue failed to advance from two different Steps of Knowledge pairs. Those being Red-Blue-Orange-Silver, and Blue-Orange-Purple-Silver.
- All the Blue-Orange-Purple-Silver episodes had artifacts at least reached. Also, Purple always advanced from this combination.
- Green always advanced from Blue-Green-Orange-Purple. They went to the temple three times when this pair happened, all from Season 3.
- The first triple capture, "Elizabeth the First's Golden Ship" was the quickest loss in the show's history. The last triple capture, "The Lost Taj Mahal Turban of Aurangzeb," was the slowest loss ever.
- On the "Metal Beard" filming day, 3/4 episodes had a Middle Eastern theme. And all three of those episodes featured the Green Monkeys at least advancing to the temple games.
- On the "Stone Head" filming day, 3/4 episodes featured Green vs. Orange in the temple games. Those were the only three episodes to feature that particular match up in Season 2.
- The only two victories that featured solo victories pulled off with 2 pendants were "The Belly Button of Buddha" and "The Milk Bucket of Freydis." Not only that, but both were Observatory artifacts, female solo victories, and had identical paths.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 19, 2013, 01:21:41 PM
Cool topic, I can't believe I never saw it before.  :o Here is some more I want to add:

- There were four episodes on the "impossible layout day": Ivan the Terrible -> Mary Shelley -> William Tell -> Hans Holbein
-- All four episodes contained teams entering two pendants.
-- Mary Shelley and William Tell featured their respective teams winning the temple games 2-0.5, both beating the Silver Snakes, and both using the EXACT same temple games.
-- Ivan the Terrible and Hans Holbein featured similar temple games with both of these teams sweeping the temple games.

- The Silver Snakes and Blue Barracudas were the only team to enter the temple in S1L4. 2/4 of those matchups were Blue/Silver temple games themselves. (Moccasins and Great Seal).
-- All four teams in S1L2 entered the temple with 1.5 pendants.

- The last production day of each season had all the teams reaching their artifacts.
-- Each production day featured a temple game sweep for one episode that day: Lawrence of Arabia, Dolley Madison, and Empress Eugenie.

- All four bottom of the central shaft runs in S3 had the teams going to the temple with 2 pendants.
-- In Empress Eugenie, Queen Boadicea, and Red Sash, it was the middle painting that opened the room to the artifact. The Smashed Printing Plate team never entered the Jester's Court.

- Every room that held only one artifact on the show was never brought out of the temple in time.

I'm pretty sure that "Bifocal Monocle of One-Eyed Jack" was the only Shrine run that had the team start out in the Center of the Rooms; all other Shrine runs had teams first enter either the bottom of the central shaft or the Observatory space.

Whoops, I meant S1L4 (Lost Logbooks, Moccasins, Great Seal, and Amelia Earhart). All of the teams entered the temple that day with 1.5 pendants. S1L2 because both Map to the Lost Gold Mine and Lost Hammer featured two pendants. ;)

I'm pretty sure that "Bifocal Monocle of One-Eyed Jack" was the only Shrine run that had the team start out in the Center of the Rooms; all other Shrine runs had teams first enter either the bottom of the central shaft or the Observatory space.

Close, but Jason from Icarus entered the Room of the Mandarin Hand from the Pit first also in his run. ;)

Here are more:

- The entire S1L2 day consisted of either a Lost artifact (Map to the Lost Gold Mine and Lost Hammer) or Golden artifact (Golden Cricket Cage and Golden Ship)
-- Cricket Cage and Golden Ship featured 1.5 pendant runs while Lost Hammer and Map to the Lost Gold Mine featured two pendants.
-- Both Map to the Lost Gold Mine and Lost Hammer also had an episode dedicated to a historical figure named "John".

- The only two temple runs of S1L1 (Galileo's Cannonball an Dead Man's Hand) had the artifacts located in the Mine Shaft. Golden Cup doesn't count because the temple run for that episode was taped in S1L5.

- There were four triple captures in S3 (Lost Taj Mahal Turban, Mummified Hand, Robert the Bruce, and Useless Map.) Both Lost Taj Mahal Turban/Egyptian King were taped on the same day and Useless Map/Robert the Bruce were taped on the same day.

- The last production day of S2L2 (Benjamin Franklin, Atocha, Emiliano Zapata, and Annie Taylor) is the only production day to feature all tiebreakers. The only run that day that wasn't a 1 pendant run was "Emiliano Zapata".

- One I forgot to mention was that 3/4 bottom of the central shaft runs in S3 were temple game sweeps. Tokugawa was the only one where the temple team didn't sweep the temple games.

- All three times the half-pendant was located in the Pit in S3, it was from a Green Monkeys run (Lost Taj Mahal Turban, Robert the Bruce, and Sforza).

- Both "Broken" artifacts located in the Shrine (Broken Trident and Broken Wing) both resulted in failed escapes even though the artifact was grabbed more than 50 seconds in both episodes. :roll:

- The Green Monkeys share a lot of episodes the episode titles share a certain word in common that no other episode shares. This includes:
-- Very Tall Turban and Lost Taj Mahal Turban (both Turbans)
-- Imperial Purple Robe and Imperial Wizard (both Imperial)
-- Empress Eugenie and Empress Theodora (Both Empresses)
-- Dried Apple Half and Dried Ear of Corn (both Dried)
-- Dried Apple Half and Applewood Amulet (both Apple artifacts)
-- William Tell and William the Conqueror (both first names William)

That is enough for now. :P

That would be very true. And going off of that:

"Bifocal Monocle of One-Eyed Jack" and "Broken Wing of Icarus" were the only two Shrine runs in which the contestant(s) entered the inner temple via the Center of the Rooms space. Both of the runs saw the frontrunner unnecessarily backtrack into the Observatory space.

Here's another coincidence regarding the bottom central shaft: None of the S1 and S2 bottom central shaft runs were pulled off with 2 pendants. Yet all the S3 bottom central shaft runs were all 2 pendant runs.

Also, 3/4 of those runs (Amelia Earhart, Golden Ship, and Polynesian Girl) had the Purple Parrots losing in the temple games. 5/8 of the bottom of the central shaft runs had the Purple Parrots lose in the temple games. (Empress Eugenie and Smashed Printing Plate to the ones mentioned above).

- Four tiebreakers resulted from a Silver/Red pairing: Alhambra  :roll:, Bandit Queen, War Fan, and Kamehameha. And all four episodes were one pendant ones also.

- Four episodes were recorded with a Green/Silver pairing and ended up being a win: Benzibab, Enormous Iron Nose Ring, Chandragupta, and The Trojan Horseshoe. I believe this is the most wins out of any pair.

- All three episodes that featured a Kristen were the last episode recorded that day (Amelia Earhart, Polynesian Girl, and Catherine the Great).
-- 2/3 of those Kristens were moat rejects from earlier episodes. (Moccasins --> Amelia Earhart and Empress Theodora --> Polynesian Girl).

- There were four temple victors with a Jennifer: Galileo's Cannonball, Atocha, Map to the Lost Gold Mine, and Buddha.

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on April 20, 2013, 01:43:33 AM
Yeah, the Purple Parrots had some terrible luck when it came to those bottom central shaft episodes. And they didn't even make it to the temple. :roll:

Here are some more:
- In "The Golden Jaguar of Atahualpa" and "The Lucky Pillow of Annie Taylor," both had Red-Blue-Orange-Purple in the Steps of Knowledge. Both had Blue vs. Purple in the temple games, with Blue winning. And both episodes had them come from behind and win the third temple game. And both had artifacts that were at least reached by a girl.
- In Season 3, 4/6 Green vs. Silver temple game pairs had Red-Green-Orange-Silver on the Steps. The other two episodes to NOT feature that pair (Spellbook and Golden Spider Web), not only had different SOK pairs, but were filmed on the same day.
- Also, the Green Monkeys always advanced from the Red-Green-Orange-Silver pair in Season 3.
- In the two times Red beat Silver (Blackbeard and Alhambra), they both featured Red-Blue-Orange-Silver on the Steps of Knowledge. And what do you  know, both were pathetic temple runs. And you wonder why Red never beat Silver again. :roll:
Title: Re: Interesting Coincidences
Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 20, 2013, 02:12:32 AM
This topic is getting pretty addicting.  :mryellow:

- Both times when a Key (Alhambra and Benjamin Franklin) was used as an artifact, the episode ended up with a one pendant tiebreaker where the opposing team got the tiebreaker question wrong, allowing the temple team (Red Jaguars and Blue Barracudas) a chance to enter the temple. Except Peter and Michelle answered the tiebreaker question correctly in Electrified Key.

- The name Leah and Kristen have a lot in common:
-- Both names were featured at least one in each season.
-- Both names resulted in a failure to reach an artifact (Amelia Earhart and Belle Boyd), a failed escape (Polynesian Girl and Blackfeet Chief), and a temple win (Catherine the Great and Sultan Saladin).

- The Parrots had back to back episodes (Annie Oakley and Billy the Kid) where the team finished first in the moat, swept the Steps, and won two pendants in the temple games. Except, Chandra and Nick didn't win in the temple.

- 3/4 Orange Iguana wins resulted from a tiebreaker question. (Atocha, Nostradamus, and Butch Cassidy)

- Likewise, 3/4 of the Orange Iguana wins came from them beating the Purple Parrots in the temple games (Sir Gawain, Butch Cassidy, and Nostradamus).

- Green/Red had the most temple game sweeps: Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress, William the Conqueror, and Queen Boadicea.

- All episodes featuring a Necklace as an artifact were two pendant episodes: Montezuma, Blackfeet Chief, and Gwalior.

- The Red Jaguars holds the record for both fastest temple win and temple loss. Coincidentally, both episodes were shown together on Nick Gas. (Golden Ship and Shaka Zulu)

Each  :jaguars2:  :snakes2:  tiebreaker involved  :snakes2: winning the individual games and  :jaguars2: winning the team game.

There were typically two paths for Center of the Room artifacts, but all 4 of the reached ones had the team start at the bottom floor (Lucky Pillow, Golden Earring, Battle Flag, & Mussel Shell Armor)

All Observatory wins were solo.

The Lucky Medallion was the only bottom floor victory in Season 2.

Every episode in S2 L5 had the team in the Room of the Artifact (not counting Nathan Hale)

It took the  :parrots2: to it's last tiebreaker to finally get a tiebreaker win (Metal Beard)

Twice is Seasons 1 & 2 did a team get the tiebreaker question wrong (Alhambra  :roll: , Jean Lafitte  :roll: , Ben Franklin (AMBASSADOR!!! :roll: ) & Icarus  :roll: )
3/4  :iguanas2:  wins were Solo (Butch Cassidy, Atocha, & Sir Gawain)

Didn't the Green Monkeys in Lost Taj Mahal Turban beat the Purple Parrots in a tiebreaker? I am pretty sure that episode comes right after Egyptian Queen. ;)

Here are a few more:

- Both times a Turban was used as an artifact resulted in a Green/Purple matchup where Green won.

- Both times a Helmet was used as an artifact resulted in a Red/Blue matchup where Red won.

- Both times an artifact was in the Pirate's Cove (Genghis Khan and Geronimo), it resulted in a temple victory.

- Both Dolley Madison and Sojourner Truth featured artifacts in the Jester's Court where the second runner was a female and both players stalled in the Dark Forest before time ran out in the Jester's Court.

- No "Golden" artifact was ever retrieved and brought out of the temple in time.

- The following production days resulted in back to back episodes where two contestants shared the same name:
-- Sultan Saladin/Alhambra: Steve
-- Useless Map/Imperial Wizard: Jared
-- Nostradamus/Icarus: Jason
-- Lion-Slashed Jacket/Roy Bean: Mike
-- Buddha/Golden Chains?: Jennifer

Here are some more coincidences I found:

- Regarding Orange Iguana wins: 3/4 of the wins had artifacts located at the very end of the temple. And 3/4 of those episodes were tiebreaker wins, (Silver Horseshoe, Atocha, Dog Leash). The only other Orange Iguanas win (Sir Gawain), had an artifact that was located in the Jester's Court.
- In Season 1, the Orange Iguanas went to the temple 6/9 times. In Season 2, the Red Jaguars went to the temple 6/10 times. In Season 3, the Blue Barracudas went to the temple 5/7 times. Yet neither of these teams scored any wins in those respective seasons.

Here is an interesting piece about the Blue Barracudas in S3. They made it to the temple games 5 times. They had at least one temple game appearances against one team except the Orange Iguanas:
- Blue/Silver - Mary Shelley
- Blue/Purple - Hans Holbein
- Blue/Red - Red Sash
- Blue/Green - Mummified Hand/Gwalior

Their two temple game losses came against the Green Monkeys in "Sforza" and "Belle Boyd". So they had a perfect record against 3 teams in S3 at least.

Here is an interesting coincidence between Queen Boadicea/Empress Eugenie.
- Both episodes were second on their production days.
- Both episodes were located in the Tomb of the Headless Kings.
- Both teams swept the temple games.
- Both teams succeeded a run that resulted in a win of their respective colors (Roland --> Boadicea, Sforza --> Eugenie). And both proceeding wins were 1.5 pendant runs.
- Both times the second runner tried the middle painting first but it gave them problems before they tried it again.
- Both males grabbed the artifact but failed to bring them out.

And besides Green/Silver, Green/Purple had just as many wins as Green/Silver.
- Emiliano Zapata
- Ahmed Baba
- Billy the Kid
- Pirate Captain
- Egyptian Queen

So both combinations had 5 wins each.

The Red Jaguars lost at the temple games three times (Bifocal Monocle, Battle Flag, and War Fan), but lost at the moat in Sir Gawain. The Purple Parrots were exactly the opposite. They LOST at the moat in the first three episodes, but made it to the temple games in Sir Gawain.

Also, the Purple Parrots advanced 6/7 times from Red-Green-Purple-Silver in Season 2. And, both Purple Parrot episodes in Season 3 featured that same Steps of Knowledge pair, and beat the Green Monkeys in the temple games.

- The Purple Parrots have lost three one pendant tiebreakers when they won their individual games and lost their team games. (Atahualpa, Annie Taylor, and Butch Cassidy). All three temple teams in these episodes reached their artifacts.

- Both the Comet-Embroidered Battle Flag/War Fan were artifacts symbolizing war and were both taped back-to-back.

- Both Lion-Slashed Jacket/Lion-Headed Bracelet were artifacts related to Lions and were taped back-to-back also.

- Both Mummified Hand/Metal Beard were episodes about Egyptian King and Queen taped back-to-back.

- 3/4 teams from the Gwalior day (Gwalior, Belle Boyd, and Pytheas) had the teams win the temple games with a 2-1.5 pendant score.

- The Orange Iguanas also 3 episodes where they won the temple games 2-1.5: Johnny Appleseed, Pytheas, and Clovis I. They also lost the temple games with that score in Catherine the Great.

- Elizabeth I and Henry VIII were related to each other and had episodes end in triple capture on the show.

- There were four Tony's that appeared on the show (Belly Button, Stone Head, Poseidon, and Billy the Kid.) All four of those Tony's were second runners.
-- All four Tony's were part of a team that won two pendants in the temple games.
-- 2/4 Tony's were in episodes where their team won. (Buddha and Billy the Kid).
-- 2/4 Tony's never entered the temple (Poseidon and Buddha).

- Both the Swamp room space and Center of the Temple have a lot in common.
-- Both rooms housed two victories each (Lawrence of Arabia's Headdress and Sir Gawain for the Swamp room space, and Annie Taylor and Mussel-Shell Armor for center of the temple).
-- Both rooms shared a failed escape (Dolley Madison for Swamp space and Henry Morgan for center of the temple).
-- Both Lawrence of Arabia and Apanuugpak were Green Monkey temple wins where they beat the Red Jaguars in the temple games AND won two pendants.
- Both Sir Gawain and Annie Taylor featured these teams winning the temple games against the Purple Parrots.

I found another coincidence:

The Blue Barracudas went to the temple with 2 pendants 5/7 times in Season 2, much like how they advanced from the temple games 5/7 times in Season 3. The other two Blue Barracuda runs (Lucky Pillow and Electrified Key), were not only 1 pendant runs, but were both filmed on the same day. So they never had a 1.5 pendant run in Season 2.

Not sure if this one has been mentioned yet, but it's regarding the two episodes Jennifer from Melted Head appeared in. Jennifer lost at the moat in Manuscript, as we all know. Naturally, Orange and Purple did not make it across, and Blue and Silver made it to the temple games. In the Melted Head episode, it's exactly the opposite. Blue and Silver lose at the moat, yet Orange and Purple go head to head in the temple games.

I think you brought this one up in the Legends Trivia thread, but the following teams only had one frontrunner male or female in Season 2:

Green Monkeys - Ashley - The Imperial Purple Robe of Empress Theodora
Blue Barracudas - Peter - The Electrified Key of Benjamin Franklin
Red Jaguars - Rachelle - The Golden Goblet of Attila the Hun
Silver Snakes - Ashley - The Golden Earring of Henry Morgan

Coincidentally, two of these teams had a frontrunner named Ashley.
Two of these artifacts were golden.
Two of these artifacts were located in the Mine Shaft.

Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on May 18, 2013, 06:39:38 PM
Ryan from Gwalior was also the only male Blue Barracuda frontrunner in Season 3. And James from Ponce de Leon was the only male Green Monkey frontrunner in Season 1. So Season 2 wasn't the only season where that happened.

Don't think this has been mentioned yet, but here's some interesting coincidences regarding "The Leopard Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley" and "The Diary of Dr. Livingstone." Both had Blue-Green-Purple-Silver on the Steps of Knowledge, Blue vs. Purple in the temple games, and both winning teams sweep their temple games. Also, both Blue Barracuda teams in both episodes finish second in the moat and Steps of Knowledge.

Also, we all know the Purple Parrots always lost to the Orange Iguanas in all 8 temple game appearances. But, whenever the Purple Parrots made it to the temple, the Orange Iguanas lost 9 out of the 11 moat crossings. The only two episodes where the Orange Iguanas did make it out of the moat, featured Green-Orange-Purple-Silver on the Steps of Knowledge, those episodes being "The Golden Pepperoni of Catherine de Medici" and "The Oracle Bowl of Delphi." Also, both Oracle Bowl and Catherine de Medici used to air together on Nick Gas pre production order reveal. I'm pretty sure I brought this up once in the Legends Trivia thread.

Another interesting thing about Annie Oakley and Dr. Livingstone was that both players in those runs used the Mine Shaft elevator. Also, both Chandra and Brett were the only contestants to complete the upper corner room in their respective runs. For Chandra, it was the Room of the Secret Password. And for Brett, it was the Viper's Nest. I know Ty from Lucky Medallion also completed the Viper's Nest, but that doesn't count because he wasn't forced to do it. Nor did it unlock anything anyways.

Here's some interesting tidbits regarding the SOK pair Red-Blue-Orange-Purple:
- Two golden artifact were from Season 1 (Golden Cup, Golden Jaguar)
- Two lucky artifacts were from Season 2 (Lucky Medallion, Lucky Pillow, filmed the same day to boot)
- The Purple Parrots advanced 3/5 times from this pair. :mrpurple:
- There were 4/5 artifact grabs from this pair too. (credit goes to TRJ for this tibdit)
- Two were Red Jaguar runs, and two were Blue Barracuda runs. (credit goes to TRJ for this tibdit)
- Both the first AND last episode filmed had both this pair, and were Red Jaguar runs.
- Not only that, but both Belshazzar and Catherine the Great were the only runs where the team won more than one pendant.
- Furthermore, both Belshazzar and Catherine the Great were the only runs out of that pair to not come down to a tiebreaker.

Most of these facts brought to you by the trivia thread. :lol:

I can't believe I never noticed how Belshazzar and Catherine the Great were the first and last episodes produced respectively and they used the same combination. :lol: It is only fitting though that our show begins and ends with the same combination.  :mrred:  :mrblue:  :mrorange:  :mrpurple:

Silver lost two when they were incorrect and Blue won 2 when their opponent was incorrect. Yet Blue and Silver never had a tie between them. 

Also, Silver lost to Red & Green, and Blue beat Red & Green.

Here is another coincident about the "Discarded Seal" production day:

- Discarded Seal, Mysterious Manuscript, Dried Apple Half, and Missing Portrait's teams all went to the temple with two pendants.
- Two of these episodes featured Green Monkeys and two of them featured the Blue Barracudas in the temple.
- Discarded Seal and Missing Portrait were both temple games sweeps while Mysterious Manuscript and Dried Apple Half were 2-0.5 temple game scores.
- Mysterious Manuscript and Dried Apple Half both shared the exact same temple sequence and both teams beat the Silver Snakes in the temple game.
- Discarded Seal and Missing Portrait's teams both encountered three temple guards in the temple, while Dried Apple Half and Mysterious Manuscript's teams only encountered two guards.
- Missing Portrait (Blue/Purple) and Mysterious Manuscript (Blue/Silver) was the only time that the Blue Barracudas faced these respective teams in Season 3.
Title: Re: Interesting Coincidences
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on April 22, 2014, 10:17:14 PM
Also, here's something to add to those above stats: Both Green Monkey frontrunners were male, and both Blue Barracuda frontrunners were female. And the pattern of teams entering the temple literally went Green/Blue/Green/Blue on that day. And all frontrunners were taken out with less than 1:25 left on the clock. Of course, Dried Apple Half had less time than that. But it's still less than 1:25, so it still counts. ;)

Here's some more interesting coincidences I found. This time, regarding the SOK pair Red-Blue-Green-Purple:
- Purple didn't advance from it in Season 1. Yet in Seasons 2 and 3, Purple always advanced from it.
- Two of those were Purple Parrot temple runs (Blackfeet Chief, Sacred Ring), both from Season 2. And the only time that pair occurred that season.
- Purple advanced all three times from that pair in Season 3, yet lost the temple games each time.
- Furthermore, Purple lost to Green twice (Lost Hornpipe, Good Luck Watch), and lost to Blue once (Hans Holbein).
- The only win to come from this pair was Lost Hornpipe.

And here's some coincidences regarding Red-Green-Orange-Purple:
- Purple advanced 4/6 times from this pair.
- The only times Purple didn't advance from this pair, were both Red Jaguar runs, (Hannibal, Missing Weather Maps).
- Three of those episodes featured Orange/Purple in the temple games, all with Orange winning.
- Two of those contestants featured a Matt on the show. (Silver Horseshoe, Dolley Madison, both Orange Iguana players, both from Season 2).
- Silver Horseshoe was the only win to come from this pair.

I think I got that right. I know, I keep bringing Purple into this. :lol:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on April 25, 2014, 12:53:10 AM
Red-Green-Orange-Purple was a pretty lousy combination. The only good episode was Dolley Madison. It was definitely not a good day for the Purple Parrots either. I am pretty sure Xerxes was part of this day also.  :oops:

Also, another interesting thing about Red-Blue-Green-Purple was that both Hans Holbein and Ponce De Leon were 2/4 episodes where the teams had to get the artifact from the bottom level out of the center of the tmeple.

Here are some comparisons of "The Snakeskin Boots of Billy the Kid" and "The Leopard-Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley":

- Both teams were Purple Parrot teams.
- Both teams finished first in each of their rounds on the show.
- Both teams swept at least one round. (Annie Oakley's team swept the temple games, Snakeskin Boots' team swept the SoK)
- Both artifacts were made of "Skin" that belonged to an animal.
- Both episodes were produced back-to-back.
- Both episodes used a couple of temple games that were not used in other temple games that day.
- Both episodes talked about a historical figure from the wild west.
- Both females were frontrunners that met a temple guard in the Laser Light Room.
- Both times the teams did not try to find a key in the Dark Forest and plowed through the wall instead. But Tony tried the shortcut to the Shrine from the Mine Shaft, but Chandra failed to try it.

Here are some coincidences regarding Applewood Amulet and Tall Turban:
- Both had Red-Green-Purple-Silver on the Steps, Green/Purple in the temple games with Green (obviously) winning.
- Both were Green Monkey victories in Season 2.
- Both had male frontrunners.
- Both frontrunners ran into temple guards in the fourth room they entered.
- Both teams took 1.5 pendants to the temple.
- Both had artifacts on the top floor.
- Both episodes that came after it (Electrified Key/Ivory Elephant), had Red-Blue-Green-Silver on the steps.
- Both with the Blue Barracudas going to the temple.

Not sure if that was mentioned yet, but there you go. :P

One question during the Applewood Amulet SoK asked, "Which of these men was the leader of Mexico when Cortez invaded?" The choices were Atahualpa, Geronimo, and Montezuma. Each of these people had their own legend on the show: two prior to the Applewood Amulet production day (in Season 1) and one a few days later.

Also, one of the answers to one of the questions in the Applewood Amulet SoK was "Pancho Villa". The episode prior to Applewood Amulet, Lucky Medallion, had the legend revolve heavily around Villa. And on the same token, the Lucky Medallion legend and SoK mentioned Emiliano Zapata. ;)

Also, Napoleon is mentioned in quite a few legends too:
- Two-Cornered Hat
- Good-Luck Watch
- Madame Tussaud

These aren't so much coincidences, but rather interesting tidbits.

- Legends was the only Nick gameshow that differed from the formats of "Team A vs Team B" and "Player A vs Player B vs Player C". (This excludes Figure It Out, which wasn't a competitive show, and Wild And Crazy Kids. I don't count WACK because it did not utilize a continuous format).

- Legends was the only Nick gameshow that actually eliminated teams/players throughout the duration the main game.

- Legends more than any other Nick gameshow required the suspension of disbelief. They all did so a slight degree, but Legends by far used this the most.

- Legends was the only Nick gameshow that had a silver team.

If it isn't, it's second only to Double Dare. Legends almost seemed to gain an even larger fanbase long after it ceased production. There would be no Legends without DD, and that show definitely blazed a trail. But Legends is, well, LEGENDARY!

Here are similarities about S1L9 and the last day of S3:

- Both production days had Red, Silver, and Green temple runs only.
- Both production days were 3/4 wins. "Anne Bonny" and "Empress Eugenie" were also failed escape runs.
- Both production days were the last temple appearances for each of those teams during this season.
- Both production days began with a Green Monkey run ("Lawrence of Arabia" and "Sforza"), the third episode was a Silver Snake run ("Snake Bracelet" and "Benzibab", and ended with a Red Jaguar run ("Anne Bonny" and "Jewel-Encrusted Egg".)
- Both days featured a temple games sweep by the Green Monkeys ("Lawrence of Arabia" and "Empress Eugenie")
- Both days had artifacts in the same room (Snake Bracelet/Anne Bonny in Torch Room, Sforza and Catherine the Great in Ancient Warriors.)

Here are some interesting coincidences about S1L6:

- In "Golden Chains", Red and Blue didn't make it past the moat. Yet, they were the featured temple game teams in "Buddha". Likewise, Orange and Purple didn't make it past the moat in "Buddha" but made it to the temple games in "Golden Chains". Both of these episodes featured a frontrunner named Jennifer.
- The same pattern works for "Shiva" and "Stone Marker". In "Stone Marker", Orange and Silver didn't make it past the moat while they made it the temple games in "Shiva".
- There were three Red/Blue episodes during this day ("Buddha", "Stone Marker", and "Joan of Arc"). The other two episodes featured Orange/Purple and Orange/Silver where Orange went to the temple games.
- "Golden Chains" through "Shiva" used the exact same temple game sequence. "Stone Marker" and "Joan of Arc" used the exact same temple game sequence. All five episodes used the same first temple game.
- Every player started in the Cave of Sighs during this day.
- Every player at least completed the Room of Harmonic Convergence.
