* OverprotectiveDad: According to [[Characters/WWEDivas Terri Runnels]], Dusty didn't much care for his daughter-in-law and played Iago to Dustin's Othello, spreading rumors about her sleeping around and bleeding his bank account dry.

* {{Acrofatic}}: He’s just a common man, eatin’ cake with both hands. While just shy of "[[TheGiant giant]]" status (he's 6'1), Dusty was stout enough to shrug off any offense, while nimble enough to counter his opponent's attacks two-fold.

As Dusty put it himself during the famous "Hard Times" promo:
--> I admit I don't look like the athlete of the day's supposed to look. My belly's just a little big, my hiney's just a little big, but brother I am bad, and they know I'm bad.

Added DiffLines:

* RippedFromTheHeadlines: Of a sports variety. His classic rivalry with Wrestling/RicFlair was designed to mirror the Lakers-Celtics rivalry that was huge at the time, pitting the flashy, stylish and flamboyant (Flair/Lakers) against the no-nonsense, workmanlike, determined style (Rhodes/Celtics). As history can tell, it achieved massive success for both the [[Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance NWA]] and the [[UsefulNotes/{{Basketball}} NBA]].

In 1985, Dusty transitioned into booking what would eventually become [[{{Wrestling/WCW}} World Championship Wrestling]]. As booker, Rhodes would develop a number of creative feuds and {{gimmick matches}}, including the WCW standard "[=WarGames=]'' match. After openly defying a "no bloodshed" edict from TBS censors at ''[=Starrcade=] '88'', Rhodes was fired from WCW. He would join the [[{{Wrestling/WWE}} WWF]] in 1989, where he wrestled as "Common Man" Dusty Rhodes for two years, feuding with [[Wrestling/RandySavage "Macho Man" Randy Savage]]. The most notable aspect of this period was the god-awful ugly yellow-polkadot unitard he would wear in the role. Some thought the costume choice was WWF owner VinceMcMahon's way of [[BadJobWorseUniform humiliating one of his former competitors]], but Dusty has always maintained [[IMeantToDoThat the whole thing was his idea.]]

In his later years, Dusty worked on NXT as a promo coach, mentoring and inspiring a whole new generation of wrestlers. He called the developmental wrestlers his "kids" and many of them cite Dusty as a major influence in their character work and improved promo skills.

On June 10, 2015, paramedics responded to Rhodes' home in Orlando, Florida, after getting a call reporting that he had fallen. They drove him to a nearby hospital, where Dream cut a promo to St. Peter about how he wined and dined with kings and queens, and now he wants to add gods to that list. He was 69 years old.

* CuckoolanderCommentator: A living drunk post,Dusty's thick accent and bizarre speaking pattern makes it almost impossible to understand him, especially in the late 80's onwards. As WCW commentator, he gained quite the reputation for verbal diarrhea, so much so that "Insane Dusty Commentary" is a regular feature of ''{{Website/Botchamania}}''.
