* ArchEnemy: With Ken Shamrock, in a rivalry that goes back to their days in mixed martial arts.

* PowerStable: Wrestling/JimCornette's NWA.
* PutOnABus: Basically jobbed out in late 1998-early 1999 after having been [[{{Kayfabe}} injured]] by Owen Hart. In real life too as he simply dropped off the map after retiring and disappeared.

!!! Albert[=/=]A-Train[=/=]Tensai[=/=]Jason Albert (Matthew Jason Bloom) 1999-2004, 2012-present
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/princealbertwwf_4299.jpg]]
* AmbiguouslyGay: In his early days.
* BaldOfEvil
* BashBrothers: With Karl Anderson as ''Bad Intentions''
* TheBigGuy: As a face.
* BigFun
* TheBrute: As a heel.
* ButtMonkey: Was one for a time, during his gimmick change, before he started teaming with Wrestling/BrodusClay.
* CarpetOfVirility: And it was HORRIFYING. It often caused the crowd to chant "Shave your back!"
** He finally shaved it in his [[RealLifeWritesThePlot time away in Japan before coming back]] as Lord Tensai.
* ContinuityNod[=/=]ShoutOut: The "Tensai ICHIBAN!" shout he initially did before his chokebomb slam wasn't just a new character quirk. Nor was it [[{{Website/Botchamania}} a reference to an obscure lipstick sold by Joey from]] ''Series/{{Friends}}''. Watch a New Japan Giant Bernard match on Website/YouTube. Most likely if he wins, he'll get on the microphone and give a short promo concluding with "Shin Nihon (New Japan) Pro Wrestling ICHIBAN!"
* FacepalmOfDoom: Used this as Lord Tensai as part of his Finisher, befire it was phased out as part of his makeover.
* LightningBruiser: He can move pretty fast for a big guy, which made his 'A-Train' ring name all the more apt, as he often came at his opponents like one.
* OddCouple: With Brodus Clay.
* RedBaron: We can't forget the "Hip-Hop Hippo", as he was called, teaming with Scotty 2 Hotty, though [[DorkAge Lord knows we'd like to]].
* {{Retool}}: Underwent one as higher ups weren't all that impressed by him. They dropped the Lord part of his name, the robe, the "ICHIBAN!" shout, mist and his follower Sakamoto.
* ScreamingWarrior
* SimpleYetAwesome: His Clawhold STO during the early Tensai days. You just sweep your opponent's leg and slam their head to the ground, no heavy lifting required (like with a normal Chokeslam). However, his unnecessarily elaborate setup for it usually suffered from AwesomeButImpractical.
* TattooedCrook

!!! Taka Michinoku (吉田 貴男 Yoshida Takao) 19972001
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/takamichinoku_1333.jpg]]
* DavidVersusGoliath: Has had plenty of these matches, but him facing Triple H for the WWF Championship stands out.
* FollowTheLeader: While not the first person to win the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship, he was the first winner in the WWF.
* GagDub: Voiced by Bruce "Brother Love" Pritchard in 2000-2001.
* IHaveTheHighGround
* {{Jobber}}: Only after he lost the LHW title.
* LaughablyEvil: As part of Kaientai when they were gag dubbed. Taka in particular was very "EEEVVVVIIILLL."
* {{Unrelated Brother|s}}: He turned heel and sided with Kaientai (Dick Togo, MEN's Teioh, Shoichi Funaki and manager Mr. Yamaguchi-San) because Val Venis had made a porn film with Yamaguchi-San's "wife", who was also TAKA's "sister."

* ArchEnemy: X-Pac [[XPacHeat before it was cool]].
* BaldOfAwesome
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Oh you better recognize just who the hell I am"
* CombatPragmatist: For a time he used a chest protector, for a torn pectoral muscle, in matches. He still used it, even after his muscle had healed to make the Lo' Down (his variation on the Frog Splash) more effective.
* FinishingMove: Lo' Down (Frog Splash); Sky High (Twisting Sit-Out Hangman Power Bomb)
* GeniusBruiser: Is a Certified Public Accountant; this isn't WrestlingDoesntPay, because he never brings it up in the WWF/E.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone[=/=]HeroicBSOD: Accidentally crippled Darren "Droz" Drozdov in a match, and didn't get over that fact for a while. Not that it was his fault, as the accident occured due to a wet spot on the canvas, resulting in a botched powerbomb.
* HotBlooded
* JiveTurkey
* LightningBruiser
* LeotardOfPower: During his later singles career.
* MalcolmXerox: With Theodore Long.
* PowerStable: The Nation of Domination, then the Nation after the Rock overthrew Faarooq on the ''Raw'' after ''[=WrestleMania=] XIV''.
* SmallNameBigEgo: As a {{Heel}}
* TooManyBelts: The first person to be Euro-Continental Champion, as in hold both the European and Intercontinental belts at once.
* {{Undercrank}}: The opening for Raw Is War circa 1998-1999 does this to him while he's doing his head bobbing routine. Naturally, it looks creepy.
