* BadassBeard: Since ''Shotgun Willie'', he's had one. His prior albums look quite strange with him clean shaven.
** It's a major plot point for the underrated Western ''Barbarosa'' where he plays the eponymous cowboy hero.

* BerserkButton: Willie ''loves'' meeting and talking with his fans. Any "handler" who attempts to hurry him along or otherwise cut short a conversation he's having with a fan is going to get a DeathGlare at the time, and a major talking-to afterwards.

* Improv: Willie is known for changing things around while he's playing live, changing the tempo or key very slightly, and his bandmates have to be quick and good to keep up with him. His live versions of his songs are often sung quite differently than the version you hear on the album, too.

* TheStoner: He's the co-chair for National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. The occasional arrest for possession is another clue.
** According to legend, he once smoked a joint on the roof of the White House. In a recent ''Rolling Stone'' interview, he claimed(while winking at the interviewer) that he couldn't remember doing this.
** And according to another legend, he once barged in out of nowhere on a ''Rolling Stone'' reporter interviewing Music/BobDylan bearing a blunt as long as his forearm. The article was never written (according to the legend, anyway).
** Brought up in ''[[Series/TheColbertReport A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All!]]'':
-->'''Willie''': Stephen, right now, I'm so high, ''you're'' hallucinating.
** Music/TobyKeith penned a song titled "I'll Never Smoke Weed With Willie Again". And sings it in Willie's SignatureStyle.
** He's done a duet with Music/MerleHaggard entitled "It's All Going to Pot." Both men can be seen lighting up in the video.
