** For Season 11, a BigBadEnsemble of 17, leader of GEKIDO, Tim Donst, and Delirious, leader of the second Dark Army.

** For Season 11, a BigBadEnsemble of 17, leader of GEKIDO, Tim Donst, and Delirious, leader there was an EvilPowerVacuum left in the wake of the second Dark Army. BDK's collapse and who would fill it was a major theme in the season arc. In the end no one quite pulled it off - either they weren't formidable enough (17, Obariyon), disappeared on account of being hired by WWE (Brodie Lee), limited themselves to one specific feud (Delirious), or just didn't care enough to try to become it (Tim Donst).



* EarlyBirdCameo: Carpenter Ant and Vökoder are a clever play on this trope; both characters appeared in the CHIKARA comic books, so fans thought that when they showed up in the promotion itself in 2009 they were the same characters. [[ShockingSwerve They weren't.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BreakupBreakout: Max Smashmaster outlived his fellow members of the Devastation Corporation, [[spoiler:although it looks like Blaster [=McMassive=] and Flex Rumblecrunch are on to bigger things in EVOLVE, so they're likely to be the real Breakouts.]] If you expand that to the entirety of Bakabella's Wrecking Crew, count Oleg the Usurper among the Breakouts and Jaka among the Jannettys.

%%More like NOPE, because Administrivia/ZeroContextExample * CoolMask: Yes.Sported by much of the roster, as CHIKARA is heavily influenced by Lucha Libre. Notable examples include Ophidian's succession of masks, Dasher Hatfield's baseball mask, and Deucalion's modified gas mask.


Added DiffLines:

* FacelessGoons: 2016 introduced several enhancement wrestlers with different colored masks of the same design, with names like Ropebreak Randy and Hiptoss Hank.

** For Season 15, NonActionBigBad Nazmaldun, the [[ManBehindTheMan force behind]] Hallowicked and the Nightmare Warriors. And now that he's been incarnated in the body of [=UltraMantis Black=] [[spoiler: and forcefully drafted Icarus and the Batiri via hypnotizing them]], he might end up being this for Season 16 as well.
** Early Season 16 established Jakob Hammermeier as a contender for the title, as he drafted Jaka into the BDK to replace the departed Nøkken, then used the Eye of Tyr on Hallowicked, effectively drafting the Nightmare Warriors as well. Unfortunately, drawing the ire of Eddie Kingston then having the Eye stolen from him by the Warriors seem to have knocked him out of the running.

Unfortunately, drawing the ire of Eddie Kingston then having the Eye stolen from him by the Warriors seem to have (with Hallowicked faking his brainwashing) knocked him completely out of the running.



* BookEnds: The Ashes series proper (after the Prelude) began and ended with someone (Green Ant at the beginning, [=assailANT=] at the end) being told "You're a Worker now".

** Wrestling/SeanWaltman even apologized on behalf of Wrestling/BillyGunn at the 2016 King of Trios for Gunn saying "Suck it", claiming that he'd forgotten to let Gunn know not to say that.



* CerebusSyndrome: Season Nine. Again in Season Twelve, continuing all the way to the end of Season Fourteen.

Added DiffLines:

** Jakob Hammermeier in 2016, twice. One, he thought the Eye of Tyr would work on Hallowicked, forgetting that the Eye had already been used on him prior. Two, he thought it'd be a good idea to antagonize Eddie Kingston and proclaim himself the new king of CHIKARA. Neither ended well for him.


Added DiffLines:

** Team Hallowicked were eliminated from King of Trios 2016 for this against Team JWP.


Added DiffLines:

** Midway through ''Disk'', April 2nd, 2016. After a match with the Arcane Horde, Hallowicked and Frightmare ambushed [=UltraMantis=] Black at ringside, bringing him into the ring before using the Eye of Tyr on him, allowing Nazmaldun to successfully possess him. This was enough of a Wham that it made ''the Warriors' theme music stop completely''.

* {{Badass}}: Even amongst wrestling, a profession in which you're expected to be badass, Eddie Kingston stands out.

* BiggerBad: Chris Hero may have ascended to this after leaving the promotion, considering his involvement in the backstory and formation of the BDK.
** Hero's status as BiggerBad was reinforced by his later claim of responsibility for the assassination of the original Dr. Cube, making him also responsible for Jakob Hammermeier's hostile takeover of the BDK, the advent of Nazmaldun, and at least partially for the formation of the Flood.

* OutsideContextVillain: As of National Pro Wrestling Day 2014, Wrestling/JimmyJacobs appeared to have a '''big''' hand in the closure of Chikara. He appeared in a Condor mask leading the entire RoguesGallery of anti-Chikara wrestlers, and later revealed that he'd been hand-picked to be Deucalion's [[TheDragon Dragon]].
