Wrestling/DrewMcIntyre).



* BreakupBreakout: In regards to Legacy, he has faired much better than Wrestling/{{Ted DiBiase|Jr}}, who in 2013 left the company. After the split Cody became Dashing, while Ted was given his father's gimmick, which didn't help him much. He then teamed with Cody again, only to grow tired of Cody's abuse, (this was when Cody was in his disfigurement gimmick) turned face, and it looked like he would avert this. Sadly, injuries in the middle of a push halted all this and he ended up leaving WWE after a year of not being used.

He then teamed with Cody again, again during Cody's disfigurement gimmick, only to grow tired of the "undashing" Cody's abuse, (this was when Cody was in his disfigurement gimmick) turned face, turn face and develop the [[SpoiledSweet DiBiase Posse]] gimmick, and it looked like he would avert this. Sadly, injuries in the middle of a push halted all this and he ended up leaving WWE after a year of not being used.



* DivergentCharacterEvolution: Randy Orton, Ted [=DiBiase=] Jr. and Cody Rhodes started very similar: MrFanservice that have [[JackOfAllStats well-rounded wrestling styles]], were third-generation Superstars and part of a WrestlingFamily, and all wear UnderwearOfPower. However, Randy's gimmick isn't anything like his father's, is a massive DracoInLeatherPants and has become a seven-time ''world champion''. Ted is an exact LegacyCharacter copy of his father, floundering in the lower mid-card and getting into feuds with Cody's brother (Goldust). Cody is the smallest and quickest, [[SoBadItsGood goofiest]], has gone as far away from his father (but not his [[GorgeousGeorge brother]]) as possible, and is doing quite well for himself on ''[=SmackDown=]'', and now that he's adopted his new psychotic heel character, he's become the Intercontinental Champion. He gained two tag team titles with Goldust and became the supervillain Stardust and going to fight Stephen Amell in 2015 [=SummerSlam=].

* TheDogBitesBack: [=DiBiase=] got tired to being treated like crap by Cody and beat the crap out of him, and nearly took his IC title from him.

** So, Randy Orton can concuss you, your father, and your best friend, but it's all good in the end and you're willing to join with his new group. Worse still was Orton's treatment of [=DiBiase=] and Rhodes in Legacy, which consisted of being outright abusive at times and STILL attacking their family members and such. They did eventually get tired of it...which somehow was a HeelFaceTurn [[KarmaHoudini for Randy]] [[DracoInLeatherPants Orton]].

* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Cross Rhodes, as mentioned below, along with Beautiful Disaster(springboard kick to the opponent's head. The latter involves spinning, because he usually runs into the corner/towards the ropes, away from the opponent, before spinning 180 to hit the opponent.

* VillainTeamUp: First with Ted [=DiBiase=] in 08,¨ some time later the two teamed up with Wrestling/RandyOrton to form Legacy. He then teamed with Drew [=McIntyre=] in '10 to create "The Dashing Ones." Unfortunately, right after they established their tag team moniker, they split up. Then he teamed up with Damien Sandow, who claimed that Rhodes was the only Superstar he could have an intelligent conversation with, which is hilarious when you consider who Cody's father is. They were officially the "Rhodes Scholars". After teaming up for a couple months, they mutually decided to focus on their singles careers while remaining best friends, going on to resume their team-up a month later while continuing to support each other's solo careers.

!!! "Tropes":
* TheAdjectivalSuperhero: He's an homage to Adam West ''Series/{{Batman}}''-era super villains; i.e. PG bad guys, and that's a cornerstone of what makes Stardust so great on the show. That gives him far more mileage than a violent psychopath on a PG show.

* DemotedToExtra: Cody Rhodes was relegated to competing on ''Wrestling/WWESuperstars'' while fellow heels such as [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]], Wrestling/AlbertoDelRio, Wrestling/TheBigShow, Wrestling/DolphZiggler, and even Damien Sandow and Wrestling/HeathSlater were getting the spotlight instead of him, for a few weeks before he got better and got back in the spotlight. Unfortunately, he is now been serving as the jobber to the stars on ''Raw'' and ''[=SmackDown=]'' while occasionally competing on ''WWE Superstars''. He has gotten better after becoming Stardust. However in the last several months, Stardust was mainly featured on WWE Superstars and [[WWE Main Event]].
