* BadBoss: Enters several of his own employees in the tournament. According to him, he's lost at least half of his workforce in three days because of this. His opinion on the possibility of the entire workforce in the Badass Crater of Badassitude starving in a few months is "THAT IS F*CKING AWESOME". Unlike Handsome Jack however, he isn't cruel so much as simply short-sighted.
** From ''Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep:''
--->'''Torgue:''' I'VE BEEN BUSY TRYING NOT TO GET THROWN OUT OF MY OWN COMPANY BY MY JERKASS SHAREHOLDERS. WHAT'S NEW WITH YOU?

* TheVonTropeFamily: Given his overly-thick German accent, it'd be surprising if his name didn't have "Von" in it.

Another has you collect [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Drifter eggs]], [[spoiler: [[ShootTheDog and then murder their mother]].

* BigBadWannabe: Although the legitimate BigBad of Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, the game mercilessly treats him as one, making him an UnknownRival to the Vault Hunters, and who only go after him when Hammerlock deduces [[FelonyMisdemeanor killing him is the only way to shut him up.]] [[spoiler: And on top of all that, [[TheUnfought he dies by falling down some stairs before you get to fight him]].]] He probably gives ''[[TheChewToy General Knoxx]]'' a run for the money in the ButtMonkey department.

** Also between the Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2. In TPS after being turned down for a date by Janey, he complains of being "friend-zoned". Present day Torgue (who is apparently [[FramingDevice listening in on Athena tell the story]]) cuts in to point out that he was younger then, and now realizes that the friend-zone is a sexist concept.
