* UnknownRival: Bobby had a long history of speaking very negatively about Tony Schiavone, especially in Heenan's autobiography. Schiavone has claimed he held no ill will towards Bobby, and never did... and didn't seem to particularly care enough to reciprocate the potshots.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: At ''[=WrestleMania=] V'', former protege (turned face) Terry "The Red Rooster" Taylor squashed him in seconds, after Heenan charged a turnbuckle and fell down. A five minute match was planned, but Heenan did this improvised finished because the ''Wrestling/UltimateWarrior'' (legitimately) hurt him earlier and he didn't feel he could do the planned match. Bobby became one of the Warrior's biggest critics. He felt that he was hurt because the Warrior was careless, and didn't seem to care a whit that he truly hurt Bobby in the match.

* ArchEnemy: Wrestling/DickTheBruiser, Wrestling/TheCrusher, Tommy Rich, Hulk Hogan, to the point where Hogan's heel turn actually made Heenan turn face, he detested the man so much.
* [[{{Biography}} Autobiography]]: 2002's ''Bobby The Brain: Wrestling's Bad Boy Tells All''
* BadSanta: Famously on the Christmas Day, 1989, episode of WWF ''Prime Time Wrestling'', where Heenan -- dressed as Santa -- openly mocked the tradition and declared there was no Santa, riling RoddyPiper up enough to get his ass kicked. The skit and the WWF were widely criticized for this episode, given that [[ThinkOfTheChildren many viewers in the audience were children who still believed in Santa]].
** Of course those people missed the point that Bobby had always been portrayed as TheGadfly and a JerkAss, so the kids would have no reason to believe him.

* BullyingADragon[=/=]TooDumbToLive: At ''[[Wrestling/WrestleMania WrestleMania VI]]'' in 1990, was managing the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-world-t.html WWE World Tag Team Champions]] the Colossal Connection (Wrestling/AndreTheGiant and [[Wrestling/{{Meng}} Haku]]) against the challengers Wrestling/{{Demolition}}. After the Demos won the match and the titles, after Andre's attempt at interference backfired against Haku (who had wrestled the entire match himself due to Andre's physical decline), Brain got in Andre's face and yelled at him for costing them the titles. Andre proceeded to slap the heck out of Brain, thus [[HeelFaceTurn turning himself face]], and left to the cheers of the crowd.

* TheCastShowOff: Several of his 90s-era post match commentaries featured 'The Brain Scan', which simply involved Heenan doodling a famous cartoon character like WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker or [[ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUS Dennis the Menace]] on the show's Telestrator while putting down a {{Face}} wrestler.

Bobby is arrogant, selfish, cowardly, cheap and is contemptuous of anyone he deems beneath him (which is most people) and a [[ProfessionalButtKisser suck-up to superiors]]. Out of character, he said there's a HUGE difference between Raymond Louis Heenan (the man) and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan (the character).

Of course, he was back to his money-grubbing ways when the credits rolled, leading into his SchiffOneLiner.

-> "''A friend in need is a pest.''"

Raymond Louis Heenan (1944-2017), better known as Bobby "The Brain" Heenan was one of ProfessionalWrestling's most famous managers (and possibly the most successful), working throughout Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s "Federation Years" of [[TheEighties the '80s]] and [[TheNineties '90s]] as the manager of many a great wrestler and tag team, often running his collective of wrestlers under the name of "The Heenan Family". The Family was constantly opposed by Wrestling/HulkHogan, and many of the wrestlers Heenan managed met with bitter defeat at Hogan's hands, despite Heenan's efforts to tilt the odds in their favor.

Aside from his managerial duties, Heenan was also a color commentator; he was one-half of (arguably) the greatest commentary duo in the history of the industry (with the late Wrestling/GorillaMonsoon), and he also worked for {{Wrestling/WCW}} for a number of years. Heenan is also an official member of the WWE Hall of Fame.

** He did the same routine with Wrestling/TonySchiavone, although since Schiavone was nowhere near Gorilla's level as a commentator, they didn't come up with any memorable exchanges. Whereas Monsoon would seemingly try to shut Heenan up, he did it in a way that fed Heenan to retort, so they would keep {{volleying insults}} back and forth. Schiavone would act like a brick wall and shut down any attempts by Heenan ("no, it's ''not''", or ''"shut'' up.") to get a similar flow going. This reason for this lack of chemistry was that, whereas Heenan and Monsoon were the best of friends, Heenan and Schiavone genuinely hated each other. That makes for uncomfortable viewing.
