** When doing the videogame Street Fighter: The Movie, he came up with a number of moves for Guile that were not in the original games. One of those moves is, you guess it, a punch from a full split position.

* ArchEnemy: Reputedly had a feud with Creator/StevenSeagal, which came to a head when Seagal (falsely) claimed Van Damme had lied about his achievements in martial arts. According to SylvesterStallone, this came to a head at a party at his Miami home in 1997, when Van Damme offered to fight Seagal, who fled to a nightclub, and then fled again when Jean-Claude chased him to the local trying to end the thing.

* [[GenderBlenderName Gender Bender Middle Name]]: Camille is a unisex name in the French language, although it does tend to be more frequently used on men in somewhat traditional social circles. He himself finds it feels "''old-fashioned'', like the smell of a piece of Provence furniture."
* GratuitousEnglish: Particularly prone to this trope in his French-language interviews due to his propensity to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Codeswitching codeswitching]], which only compounds his CloudCuckoolander reputation among [[FrenchJerk the guys]] who primarily know him as "that funny Belgian who delivers [[IceCreamKoan Ice Cream Koans]] in Frenglish". Most famously, using the word "[[MemeticMutation aware]]" to convey the idea of self-awareness (maybe).
