* SpecialGuest: Most times faked - Microsoft Sam plays Stephen Hawking in ''[[Music/MichaelJackson The Girl Is Mine]]'', the Sulu in "Light My Fire" is Mark himself... but WeirdAlYankovic and [[Music/{{Slipknot}} Corey Taylor]] have sung with him.

* BigNameFan: Creator/ZackSnyder, who featured the band in ''Film/DawnOfTheDead2004'' ("Down with the Sickness") and ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' ([[http://radio.com/2016/03/24/richard-cheese-batman-v-superman-song/ two new covers of]] Music/ColePorter).



* CreatorBacklash: Of a sorts. Richard was upset about the fact he does not get any royalties from his cover of "Down with the Sickness" used in the 2004 version of ''Film/DawnOfTheDead2004''.



* OneOfUs: Is a huge Franchise/StarWars and Series/StarTrek fan. He's also a Creator/GeorgeTakei impersonator.

* {{Medley}}: His "[[Music/GreenDay American Idiot]]" cover devolves into one of these, going through [[ComicallyMissingThePoint "My Country, 'Tis of Thee", "God Bless America", "America the Beautiful", "The Star-Spangled Banner"]] and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers "La Cucaracha"]] before cycling back around to the Green Day song. The live version of "Brass Monkey" earns some other brief BeastieBoys snippets.

* ThisSongGoesOutToTvTropes: "[[{{Music/Nirvana}} Rape Me]]" is "for the ladies", "Don't Cha" "goes out to all the lesbians in the audience", real or imagined. He has one for "[his] good friend, TheBeastieBoys" in his cover of "Brass Monkey".

* SmallNameBigEgo: All a part of his stage persona. When the news broke that ''Series/{{Glee}}'' had ripped off JonathanCoulton's cover of "Baby Got Back", his immediate reaction on Facebook was to speculate that his would be next.

* OurLawyersAdvisedThisTrope: With a fake duet with [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Lieutenant Sulu]] (who is not ''the'' Sulu... and he's not GeorgeTakei, either - Richard Cheese is a Takei impersonator), Richard Cheese's lawyer personally calls him up to see if he did the disclaimer and made sure he said "Celebrity Voices Impersonated".

* IndecipherableLyrics: Undone by many of his covers, in which you can understand him perfectly. He keeps it in tact for LilWayne's "Lollipop", though, by mumbling all the words. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLd22ha_-VU The downright unintelligible]] [[Music/PearlJam "Yellow Ledbetter"]] has Richard [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjfKQaZdWmE making up some]] WordSaladLyrics.

Similarly, Rihanna's "Work" turns into gibberish, in-between Richard mocking the song.
