* HiddenDepths: Both in and out of character. As Kane, there's absolutely no way anyone would have guessed that the silent, masked giant who debuted at 1997's Bad Blood would go on to become one of WWE's best mic workers, and then eventually transform into an articulate, suit-wearing, Director of Operations underneath Triple H and Stephanie [=McMahon=]. Out of character, it's downplayed-- no one has ever accused Glenn Jacobs of being a dummy, but he not only has a degree in English literature from before his pro wrestling career, but has gone on to become active in politics, was the last wrestler standing during a WWE-themed episode of The Weakest Link, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking makes a damn good]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgaxBTLR7j4 weatherman]].

* YouGotGuts: Used in a frightening manner towards Wrestling/{{Sheamus}}, when the Irishman interrupted a backstage segment of Kane's:
-->'''Kane:''' I like you. You've got guts. Most of which will be spilled out all over the floor if you EVER interrupt me again!

Glenn Thomas Jacobs, born April 26, 1967, is a Spanish-born American {{professional wrestl|ing}}er trained by Ray Candy who is best known for a stint in Wrestling/{{WWE}} under the name '''Kane'''. He is one of WWE's longest-tenured superstars, with the gimmick having debuted in 1997 (and having worked for WWE a number of times prior to the Kane gimmick); in {{Kayfabe}}, Kane is the half-brother of Wrestling/TheUndertaker, with Kane's father being Undertaker's former manager Wrestling/PaulBearer (the "Brothers of Destruction" shared the same mother). He was originally thought to be dead, due to a fire started by the Undertaker that also claimed the lives of his parents, before Paul Bearer brought him back. Since their initial feud, Kane and Undertaker have both teamed up and feuded again several times.

** The infamous Katie Vick angle also had its roots in this, with Triple H claiming that Kane snapped into a murderous rage when Katie rejected him.

** Also to the film ''Halloween''. As stated above: an angry, less-than-talkative masked giant who kicks whatever ass is in front of him and is known to sit straight up when he is down and out, but with the added touch of being an unstoppable supernatural force that really wants to destroy his sibling. This was taken a step further in an article for RAW Magazine that talked about Kane before his debut that used an '''actual''' picture of Michael Myers from the movies.

* NeverLiveItDown: In kayfabe. During his time as "Corporate Kane," many a superstar made it a point to remind Kane that he was a monster before he traded his mask for a suit.

* OldShame: For Jacobs, not the Kane character, the Christmas Creature gimmick he had. He so despises it he's occasionally asked wrestling websites to take down pictures of the Creature.



* RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** Was randomly turned heel on the Undertaker before ''Wrestling/{{SummerSlam}} 2000'' because Taker's original opponent, The Big Show, had been shipped off to WWE's developmental league Ohio Valley Wrestling in an attempt to get him to lose some weight. Although if you need someone to go heel on the Undertaker on a moment's notice without a stated reason...
** The primary reason he was originally unmasked is because Glenn Jacobs was having increasing difficulty wrestling with the mask on.



** [[OldShame Katie]] [[NeverLiveItDown Vick]]. It's been a decade and people ''still'' bring it up from time to time.
