* AGodAmI: When [[Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys Bully Ray declared Team 3D]] to be gods of tag team wrestling during the setup to the TNA Tag Title Series between themselves, The Hardy Boys and The American Wolves, the Hardys agreed. Agreed that they were also gods of tag team wrestling and that Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards were not but as the champions had earned a chance to insert themselves into the circle.
* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: Has been called WWE's Teddy Hart, which became funny when Hardy later showed up in Ring Of Honor and TNA, where Hart had previously been.

* ArchEnemy: Hardy has a history with Wrestling/{{Edge}}, Wrestling/{{Christian}}, and Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys going back to their tag team days (their ladder matches were [[StarMakingRole something else]]). CMPunk feuded with Hardy and ultimately forced him to leave WWE (kayfabe, due to Hardy's expiring contract). He also feuded with his brother Matt. In TNA it's Wrestling/AustinAries.
* ApologeticAttacker: As part of his heel [[TheAntichrist Antichrist]]/DarkMessiah thing, Jeff's promos consisted of him apologizing for crippling you, and then saying it's [[HumansAreBastards human nature]] to do so, and that anybody else would [[NotSoDifferent do the same thing]]. Kinda doubles as a MindScrew, if you [[IncrediblyLamePun really think about it]]. Which, by the way, would, not be advised.

** Jeff Hardy has been portrayed like this. He gyrates and dances his way to the ring, covers his arms and face in fluorescent paint, makes abstract paintings backstage, openly refers to his fans as freaks and misfits (in a good way, indicating that he's just as much one as them), and throws his body into his every attack with reckless abandon... and is a three-time WWE world heavyweight champion and six-time tag-team champ. Even better? He fits this trope in real life as well, as his real behavior is even more bizarre, and yet he was respected enough and loved by the fans enough during his WWE run that he was given all those title reigns.
** Jeff also seems to have an affinity for large African animals. He and Matt did at least one interview while straddling [[http://27.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lzvikpQJfY1r1nxqvo1_400.jpg wooden cheetahs]] (also notice Jeff's leopard-print pants). There's another photo of him gleefully hugging an honest-to-god giraffe.

* CloudCuckooLander: His TV character is in fact considerably more normal than he is in real life. His closest friends claim that one of his favorite activities outside of wrestling is "digging holes and filling them back in." His sculpting material of choice is aluminum foil. Also, there's his alter-ego Itchweeed (which is in fact the correct spelling).

* {{Determinator}}: Jeff's never-say-die performance in his legendary 2002 Undisputed title ladder match against Undertaker. It took a Chokeslam off a ladder to down Jeff long enough for Undertaker to win, and then when Jeff DARED get back up after that, Taker put him down with a Last Ride. When Jeff got back up after THAT, screaming through a mic that "You ain't broke me, Taker!", Undertaker's response was to simply pat Jeff on the head as a sign of respect and call him 'one tough son-of-a-bitch'.

** Matt, by Jeff, after they feuded in 2009. Essentially Matt said that he had made a mistake and Jeff forgave him. The "mistake" apparently involved Matt burning Jeff's house to the ground, killing his dog (both of which happened in real life, albeit not because of anything Matt had done), and trying to murder him and/or end his career at least three times. The forgiveness came only a couple months after the end of their fighting over it. To be fair, Matt still had to prove himself by helping Jeff a lot before he was trusted again, and Jeff rebuffed his initial apology during their "I Quit" match by putting him through a table, breaking Matt's arm in the process.
** Even more so with WWE and TNA, considering he's been a ''world champion'' in both companies despite being previously fired from both for drug use.
*** Though Victory Road 2011 may have finally [[AvertedTrope averted]] this. He promptly dropped the title and has been [[PutOnABus written off of the show]] for months. Despite asking for forgiveness from other wrestlers, all he has gotten in return have been WhatTheHellHero speeches and a feud with Jeff Jarrett. It was well over a year before Jeff got back into the world title scene again, and that was mainly because his contract was running out soon and TNA didn't want him to sign back with WWE.
* {{Face}}: During his decade-plus career, Jeff has almost never been a {{Heel}}.
** FaceHeelTurn: He turned heel at 2010's "Bound For Glory". At the AntiClimax of an angle that was irredeemably terrible.
*** HeelFaceReturn: Returned a few months later asking for forgiveness and getting another chance after his performance at Victory Road 2011.
* FacialMarkings: Frequently paints his face, sometimes paints his whole body. For a stretch in the WWE he was using glow in the dark paint, which tended to rub off on whoever he was wrestling or on then love interest Wrestling/TrishStratus.
* FinishingMove: The Swanton bomb, a top rope senton bomb which involves flipping at the last possible instant where it is still possible to somersault (a more showoffy version). Also borrowed his brother's twist of fate.
* FunctionalAddict: Hardy has had a sorted history with abusing drugs, even while on the road. This came to a head a Victory Road 2011, when he came out to perform completely inebriated. Since then he's managed to stay on the wagon.
* FragileSpeedster: Subverted; Jeff may rely on his quickness and agility, but he can also take a shitload of punishment. Sometimes that punishment's self-inflicted in order to do even greater damage to his opponent. Of course, in RealLife, even in his early twenties he was obviously in pain as he walked. He's had a surprisingly few amount of serious injuries for his style of wrestling.
* GameBreakingInjury: Broke his leg in a motor cycle accident, causing him and Matt to have to drop the TNA tag team titles in 2015.
* GroinAttack
** One of his signature moves is to spread apart the legs of a prone opponent and then drop both legs on his balls. This has been [[HandWave hand waved]] as not actually being a ''strike'', and therefore legal in a match.
** The announcers will also try to put over that the ref doesn't have a clear view, looking like Hardy goes for the gut. Or in general, that the move is supposed to be planting his feet in the opponents abdomen and having his legs land on their groin is just collateral damage.
* HardHead: Striking Willow's head is not very effective
* IHaveManyNames: Not that anybody knows them but besides Jeff Hardy, Galaxion, Gladiator, The Iceman, Keith Davis, Mean Jimmy Jack, Wildo Jinx, Jeff Harvey, Itchweeed and Willow The Wisp. Wrestling/MikeAdamle did know of his time as Jeff Harvey, which caused him to unfortunately call it out, even though the name was never used in ''WWE''.
* IHaveTheHighGround: And it does not get much higher than the titan tron. This is especially notable because Jeff Hardy is not a part time wrestler and WWE is not a {{garbage wrestling}} promotion.
* InnerMonologue: Willow would do these. As in he would stand their silently while Jeff Hardy's voice was sounded from somewhere. An inner monolog everyone else could hear. It was scarier when Nyla Rose did it.

** When Jeff didn't sign a new contract with WWE before his old one expired, he was charged with drug possession during his time away from the company. Before that, Jeff had been feuding with the StraightEdgeEvil Wrestling/CMPunk, who had made references to Hardy's past substance abuse issues during that feud. After Hardy's arrest, Punk gloated on the next addition of Smackdown about his former rival's misfortune in order to get heat. The original plan was to eventually negotiate a new deal with Hardy, who would return to face Punk at a future pay-per-view. However, Hardy didn't appreciate what was being said about him on WWE programming, so he signed with TNA instead. WWE was forced to go with Plan B: putting Punk in a feud with Wrestling/{{Rey Mysterio|Jr}}.
** The loss of the TNA World Title to Mr. Anderson in such a rushed fashion was most likely to get the belt off Hardy, who might be sentenced to jail time soon after being found guilty on his aforementioned drug charges. But seeing that he gained it back soon after, that may not have been the issue.
** His match at ''Victory Road'' 2011 was so short because Jeff showed up "in no condition to work" (i.e. "drugged out as all Hell") and Wrestling/{{Sting}} wasn't going to actually wrestle him for fear of Jeff injuring one or both of them in his state. So, instead of an actual match, Sting squashed him in 90 seconds. Keep in mind that match was for the World Title, and was the main event of the evening. And TNA had earlier in the night squandered the chance to name a #1 contender, so the 90-second match ended the event. His return to the company had him making a public apology to the audience over his unprofessional behavior at ''Victory Road'', but as noted above, he has not been completely forgiven. It even became rather literal; between Jeff having to almost be ''carried'' to the entryway backstage, his obvious inability to even get down to the ring, and Sting having (allegedly) been honestly considering walking out on the match, Wrestling/EricBischoff walked out into the middle of the ring ''on live PPV after the ring announcer ran down the match'' to pass along emergency instructions to each wrestler under the cover of adding an extra stipulation to the match. Jeff looked heartbroken, Sting went from disgusted to furious, and then 90 seconds later went home with the belt. And when one fan yelled out "THAT WAS BULLSHIT", Sting said "I agree! I agree!"

* VetinariJobSecurity: As described throughout the page, Hardy has had a spotty record with both WWE ''and'' TNA, that would've gotten anyone else lower on the card fired with prejudice. Hardy has PopularityPower on his side. [[note]]Case in point, when Jeff and Matt both respectively had their drug related issues, Jeff was kept on board and sent to rehab while Matt was fired.[[/note]]

** His match at ''Victory Road'' 2011 was so short because Jeff showed up "in no condition to work" (i.e. "drugged out as all Hell") and Wrestling/{{Sting}} wasn't going to actually wrestle him for fear of Jeff injuring one or both of them in his state. So, instead of an actual match, Sting squashed him in 90 seconds. Keep in mind that match was for the World Title, and was the main event of the evening. And TNA had earlier in the night squandered the chance to name a #1 contender, so the 90-second match ended the event. His return to the company had him making a public apology to the audience over his unprofessional behavior at ''Victory Road'', but as noted above, he has not been completely forgiven.
*** It even became rather literal; between Jeff having to almost be ''carried'' to the entryway backstage, his obvious inability to even get down to the ring, and Sting having (allegedly) been honestly considering walking out on the match, EricBischoff walked out into the middle of the ring ''on live PPV after the ring announcer ran down the match'' to pass along emergency instructions to each wrestler under the cover of adding an extra stipulation to the match. Jeff looked heartbroken, Sting went from disgusted to furious, and then 90 seconds later went home with the belt. And when one fan yelled out "THAT WAS BULLSHIT", Sting said "I agree! I agree!"

* BattleCouple: At times with Trish Stratus, who initially was an enemy to Team X-treme (Hardy Boys and Wrestling/{{Lita}}) when she managed T&A(Wrestling/{{Test}} and Albert) but was became their ally out of convenience during the WCW Invasion and gradually fell for Jeff. He eventually returned her affections when she ran out to fight off [[Wrestling/LisaMarieVaron Victoria]], who was interfering during a match Jeff had with Wrestling/StevieRichards.

* {{Determinator}}: Jeff's never-say-die performance in his legendary 2002 Undisputed title ladder match against Undertaker. It took a Chokeslam off a ladder to down Jeff long enough for Undertaker to win, and then when Jeff DARED get back up after that, Taker put him down with a Last Ride. When Jeff got back up after THAT, screaming through a mic that "You ain't broke me, Taker!", Undertaker's response was to simply pat Jeff on the head as a sign of respect and call him 'one tough son-of-a-bitch'.

* ShoutOut: Poetry in motion is basically a double team version of a move Nobukazu Hirai used in "Shin" Wrestling/{{FMW}}. Jeff has even used it solo.
* SiblingTeam: With Matt Hardy, whom internet chat rooms goers and ROH bots tended to prefer but Jeff tended to overshadow anyway.

** On the second Destination Impact the Hardys employed moves of older TNA tag teams, Jeff using Elix Skipper's rope walk and the both using the Natural Disaster to defeat The American Wolves.

* TookALevelInBadass: As far as his WWE career goes, his Ladder Match with Undertaker in the early 2000s. He didn't receive his first main event push until late 2007, but that was the match that really put him in the public's eyes as legitimate singles competitor.


Added DiffLines:

* ThreeMonthRule: At the end of TNA's 2014, The Revolution beat the American Wolves for the TNA World Tag Team Titles and the Hardy Boys won a tournament to become number one contenders. When TNA got a new TV deal one of the first things they got out of the way was the Wolves getting their rematch for the belts, which they lost, which would logically give the Hardy Boys the next shot. Despite this the next week featured the Hardy Boys facing the Wolves for number one contender ship without explanation.

* InsaneForgiveness: His decision to take Matt back in 2009 could be seen as this. After all the crap his older brother put him through, including insinuating that he had something to do with the fire that killed Jeff's beloved dog, no one would honestly blame Jeff for shunning his brother for the rest of his life. Considering he was feuding StraightEdgeEvil CM Punk at the time, however, it may have been a case of just him needing all the help he could get and Matt clearly being remorseful for what happened.

* FragileSpeedster: Subverted; Jeff may rely on his quickness and agility, but he can also take a shitload of punishment. Sometimes that punishment's self-inflicted in order to do even greater damage to his opponent. Of course, in RealLife, even in his early twenties he was obviously in pain as he walked.
** He's had a surprisingly few amount of serious injuries for his style of wrestling.

** Matt, by Jeff, after they feuded in 2009. Essentially Matt said that he had made a mistake and Jeff forgave him. The "mistake" apparently involved Matt burning Jeff's house to the ground, killing his dog (both of which happened in real life, albeit not because of anything Matt had done), and trying to murder him and/or end his career at least three times. The forgiveness came only a couple months after the end of their fighting over it.

The forgiveness came only a couple months after the end of their fighting over it. To be fair, Matt still had to prove himself by helping Jeff a lot before he was trusted again, and Jeff rebuffed his initial apology during their "I Quit" match by putting him through a table, breaking Matt's arm in the process.



*** Though Victory Road 2011 may have finally [[AvertedTrope averted]] this. He promptly dropped the title and has been [[PutOnABus written off of the show]] for months. Despite asking for forgiveness from other wrestlers, all he has gotten in return have been WhatTheHellHero speeches and a feud with Jeff Jarrett.

It was well over a year before Jeff got back into the world title scene again, and that was mainly because his contract was running out soon and TNA didn't want him to sign back with WWE.
