** A couple of his early feuds saw him getting hit in the nuts a lot. Then again, when one of the guys on the other end of the feud is RicFlair...

* GeniusBruiser: It's not discussed ''ad nauseum'' like it is for some people - but if you look at Randy's career it becomes clear that he's very well versed in psychological warfare. [[FridgeBrilliance Which makes perfect sense,]] given that he was mentored early in his career by [[Wrestling/JakeRoberts two]] [[Wrestling/TripleH masters]] of it. In fact, as a superior athlete, he likely would be ''better'' in the category of this trope than his two teachers. The only things that hold him back in such a regard have been his anger issues and his durability.

** This was CM Punk's motivation for making [[TheNexus The New Nexus]] target Orton. (See LargeHam.) He even punted them [[PutOnABus on a bus]] during their feud, and it would appears as this would apply again, but then three out of four of Orton's [[TheNexus punt victims]] came back off the bus to beat him down and cost him another shot at the WWE title. He then defeated all of them once again, dominated CMPunk twice in a row, and went on to win World Heavyweight Championship 2 days later in a match he only "earned" via Teddy Long's clear populist favoritism. Opening ''yet another'' clear floodgate of Karma Houdini-ness.

** In a shocking twist, he was also the ''recipient'' of this at ''Summerslam 2016''. Wrestling/BrockLesnar's elbows did very, ''very'' bad things to Randy's forehead.

* HypercompetentSidekick: A large chunk of the last several years for Orton has seen the twelve-time World Champion as an enforcer to other stars. After he lost the title(s) himself, he spent a fairly lengthy stint helping to keep the titles on Wrestling/SethRollins (and[=/=]or off Wrestling/DanielBryan) as a member of Wrestling/TheAuthority. In 2016, he's a member of Wrestling/TheWyattFamily.

These days, Orton is better known for his decade-long feud with Wrestling/JohnCena -- actually much longer, originating back when they were both scrappy upstarts in OVW. In fact, you would be forgiven for thinking these two are descended gods who have been fighting down through the centuries. There's been roughly 30 single matches between Cena and Orton, but if you count multiple matches —Tag Matches, Triple Threats, Hell in a Cells, Elimination Matches, Elimination Chambers — the number is [[TheUsualAdversaries probably around 125.]]

These days, Orton is better known for his decade-long feud with Wrestling/JohnCena -- actually much longer, originating back when they were both scrappy upstarts in OVW. Ironically, in an inversion of their usual WWE feud dynamic, Orton was the face and Cena was the heel.

** Wrestling/TheUndertaker for the period when he tried to break "The Streak", even proving he was {{badass}} enough, by turning heel again, since leaving Evolution, but giving his girlfriend Wrestling/StacyKeibler an RKO.

* HearingVoices: His current theme song, "Voices" by Rev Theory. And it's really fit his character, as he apparently hears voices while he's in the middle of destroying his opponents.

* HearingVoices: His current theme song, "Voices" by Rev Theory. Theory served as his theme song when his character became [[TookALevelInBadass darker]], and at first, it had no official relevance to his character. Soon after, Randy was confirmed to have severe mental issues, especially with anger, and eventually, the voices in his head became canon. And it's really fit his character, as he even more terrifyingly, the voices themselves apparently hears voices while he's in the middle don't approve of destroying his opponents.

Randy's twisted actions.
-->'''Orton:''' In

* HorrifyingTheHorror: On the October 11, 2016 episode of [[Wrestling/WWESmackDown SmackDown]], Randy invited Kane (his tag-team partner that night, and also WWE's resident demonic psychopath) on a trip through Randy's world. A world where "There's no games. Just pain. Misery. Agony. Chaos. Voices begging me to stop."
-->'''Kane:''' Randy... you got issues.



** ''Loves'' subverting this trope. It's almost to the point where attacking Orton from the top rope is like signing your own death warrant.
** He did have a few high flying maneuvers in the beginning of his career.
