The Tiebreaker is a means of deciding which team goes to the Temple. It is played after the Temple Games if both teams have the same amount of pendants. In Season 1, Kirk will ask a Tiebreaker question, but in Seasons 2 and 3, Olmec will ask one final Steps of Knowledge question. If a team buzzes in, they have three seconds to answer. In Season 1, if they are wrong or run out of time, the other team goes to the Temple. In Seasons 2 and 3, if they are wrong or run out of time, the other team has a chance to answer.
- In some episodes like The Ivory Elephant of Scheherazade, the tiebreaker can be seen without it being used.
- The Jeweled Scabbard of Sforza was the last time the tiebreaker was featured.
