* '''{{Badass}}''':
** In RealLife: NCAA Division I Wrestling Champion his senior year in college (runner-up his junior year) and won his UFC Title in his third UFC fight (and fourth MMA fight in general).
** In ProfessionalWrestling: won his first WWE Title (from [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]]) ''five months'' after his WWE debut, won his IWGP Title in his first match for the company, and on top of it all, as Wrestling/PaulHeyman is fond of saying, '''''[[HeroKiller he]] [[CueTheFlyingPigs conquered]] Wrestling/TheUndertaker's [[DefeatingTheUndefeatable undefeated Streak]] at Wrestling/WrestleMania!''''' Four months later at ''Wrestling/SummerSlam'' he threw 15-time world champion and resident Superman-slash-InvincibleHero Wrestling/JohnCena around the ring like a rag doll to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

* BrilliantButLazy: Beat the [[Wrestling/TheUndertaker Streak,]] destroyed Wrestling/JohnCena like he was nothing, and only bothers to show up a few times a year to wrestle. To be fair, however, this may be a CallBack to his days in UFC, in which fighters defend their titles less than once a month.
* TheBrute: During his first heel run, with Paul Heyman as his manager and mouthpiece.

month.[[note]]Real fighting is more grueling than staged fighting, even full-contact staged fighting like pro wrestling. Hence MMA fighters always having several weeks between matches to recover.[[/note]]
* TheBrute: During his first heel run, with Paul Heyman as his manager and mouthpiece. A role he frequently returns to.

** This is basically him in his second WWE run, too. He basically strikes and spams German suplexes and F-5s. And his suplexes are noticeably 'sloppier', which may be by design as they tend to look and be sold more like 'legit' suplexes, which aren't much of a stretch for a guy with Brock's raw power.

As athletic as he still is, it may not be so much that he can't use any other moves as much as he just doesn't ''need'' any other moves.

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: One of his few losses as an amateur wrestler came in the 1999 NCAA wrestling championship, to Stephen Neal, who later went on to live Lesnar's dream of playing in the NFL, playing for the New England Patriots from 2001 to 2010. Although Lesnar did win the championship the following year, and became much more famous and accomplished by going into pro wrestling and MMA, he admitted in a March 2011 interview that the loss to Neal still stuck with him.

** He tends to do this during his many, many {{Squash Match}}s. Take his ''Beast in the East'' match against poor Wrestling/KofiKingston, who tries drop kick after top-rope drop kick, and the most that elicits from Brock is a 'Seriously?' look on his face. At another time, he no-sold Jeff Hardy swinging a steel chair at his head like a baseball bat

** After April 6, 2014, this was the reason Lesnar was coming under ferocious levels of XPacHeat from fans all over the place, as they don't believe he deserved to be the one to end The Streak, due to the fact that he's got no love for the industry or the fans. His attitude of being in it only for the money was hyped up by Heyman on ''Raw'' the following night. Fans were ''not'' willing to forgive him for it. When it comes to him and the Undertaker, however, not only had Undertaker been pegging Brock to be The Streak-ender since late 2010 (although Vince was the one who officially made the call), which may add a new dimension to the whole "wanna do it?" thing after Brock's loss to Cain Velasquez, not only is Brock visible and audible saying "thank you" to Taker during the pin, but when Undertaker was driven to the hospital due to a severe concussion he suffered mid-match as Heyman mentioned in his WorkedShoot on TV the following night, not only did Wrestling/VinceMcMahon go with him, so did Lesnar and Heyman themselves, who left out this last detail on Raw for obvious reasons.
