* AmbiguouslyBrown: Well, he's half-black half-Samoan, but he could be [[PlaysGreatEthnics any number of ethnicities]] if you're just relying on what he looks like.

* {{Nepotism}}: Actually subverted. Rocky may be the first third-generation superstar to have ever been in the WWE, and while that might have played into his initial push as "Rocky Maivia", the Rock is generally regarded of very deserving of his superstardom since he came into it with his own talent rather than relying on his family name.

In his autobiography, Johnson related asking Pat Patterson(at that time one of Vince [=McMahon's=] "stooges", but also a creative executive) to watch him train, but quickly assured Pat that he wasn't trying to use his family connections to jump the line, he just wanted to know what Pat thought of his work.

* AscendedMeme: When The Rock returned to the WWE, he called Wrestling/JohnCena a "big fat bowl of Fruity Pebbles". Not long after, Post made a marketing deal with Cena for...you guessed it, Fruity Pebbles.

* UnscrupulousHero: The Rock is usually this type of hero, when portraying a Face. The basic characterization of The Rock is that his ego is completely out of control, and this trait remains no matter what "side" he's on. The Rock doesn't care about anything other than himself. There are only two differences between a Face Rock and Heel Rock: a Face Rock is willing to earn his victory with his own wits and skill while Heel Rock is willing to [[EvilIsEasy take the cheap path to a championship]], and a Face Rock cares about having the crowd on his side. Still, both of these methods only happen satisfy his ego; he does it just to prove he can do it. So, the one thing that keeps him from being a NominalHero is that, as a Face, he has a personal code of honor.
