* EvenTheGuysWantHim: All of which crosses over into outright {{Bishonen}} especially in the Smackdown intro video. There, he looks barely a teenager, the lighting really emphasizes his long eyelashes and eyes, and to top it off, the lighting combined with his mask also gives him bishie sparkles.

* GratuitousSpanish: Oh, brother. Lately, it seems as if Mysterio has turned into the wrestling equivalent of ''WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer''. It gets worse whenever he appears in California or the Southwest. ("Wrestling/{{Kane}} is a little delusional!"/"''Es un vato loco!''") Somewhat justified, as a key part of ''SmackDown's'' ratings during its broadcast TV run was its excellent numbers in Latino households, thanks chiefly to Rey and the late Eddie Guerrero.

** His first battle with [[PhysicalGod Matanza]]. Considering that Rey had just fought for nearly an hour in Wrestling/LuchaUnderground's equivalent of the Royal Rumble, and he was facing an AxCrazy PhysicalGod, it's honestly astounding he managed to last as long as he did (about a minute or so). And to be fair, Matanza had already cub-stomped 7 other men first before he got to Rey.

* DentedIron: His long career and acrobatic style has taken a ''hellish'' toll on his body, especially his knees, which are in bad shape even for a luchador.

* DentedIron: His long career and acrobatic style has taken a ''hellish'' toll on his body, especially his knees, which are in bad shape even for a luchador. However it may be considered subverted as Rey can still perform to an ''extremely'' high level, as seen on Lucha Underground (particularly his main even match at Ultima Lucha Dos against Prince Puma, considered one of his best in years).

Added DiffLines:

** In Wrestling/LuchaUnderground, it's [[BigBad Dario Cueto]], whom Rey believes is responsible for the death of his mentor. However Rey tries to defy this trope as he beleives that protecting others is far more important than obsessing over revenge.


Added DiffLines:

** And is one to both El Dragon Azteca Jr and Prince Puma. Though [[spoilers: The former's desire for revenge against the one who killed his predecessor lead him to abandon Rey's teachings]].

* BreakupBreakOut: Rey Mysterio was once a member of the stables known as the No Limit Soldiers and then the Filthy Animals in his WCW days. Since then, Rey Rey has achieved the most success as a singles competitor in the U.S.

* OlderThanTheyLook: The mask and Rey's small stature work well to hide the fact that he's much older than his appearance lets on. He was born in '''1974'''.

* WrestlingFamily: WWE refuses to acknowledge this, but Rey Misterio (Rey Misterio Jr.) is in a pretty well known family south of the border. He is a second generation superstar, and might be considered the best in this line. There is also El hijo de Rey Misterio who wrestles in Mexico. So every time Mysterio starts a feud with a Guerrero which one or both accuse Rey of wanting to be a Guerrero, a Wallbanger ensues.

One of the most famous lucha libre wrestlers in the World to date, '''Rey Mysterio Jr'''. (Real name Oscar Gutierrez) is the nephew of Rey Misterio Sr. who helped train the young wrestler. Starting his career on the independent circuit of Tijuana after being trained by his Uncle, he was picked a newly established major promotion called Wrestling/{{AAA}}, which in turn lead to Mysterio going to Wrestling/{{ECW}} in 1992, where his high-flying style attracted the attention of Eric Bischoff - who was scouting for lucha wrestlers in order to give Wrestling/{{WCW}} a more unique feel to it. Along with other ''luchadores'' and cruiserweights, Mysterio caught the attention of the crowd with the fast paced and risk taking matches, becoming one of the high points of WCW all the way up to its demise.

* HesBack: After a thirty year absence, he returned to Triple A, his first national promotion. Most appropriately at ''Rey de Reyes'', and in the main event no less.
* HornedHumanoid: WCW glued devil horns on the side of his head after he was unmasked
* IHaveTheHighGround: As per usual for the ''lucha libre'' style. Much moreso in his younger years, back when his knees were still in one piece.

*** The spelling of Rey's surname may be a remnant of his stint in WCW, as they were known for mispronouncing and misspelling the luchadores' names. Most notably, they promoted Ultimo Dragon (actually translates to "Last Dragon") as "The Ultimate Dragon" for about 2 years.

** Still doesnt change the fact that Chris Jericho thought he was a 13 year old boy the first time he saw him, according to Jericho's own biography.

** Similarly, Wrestling/ChrisJericho mentioned meeting an 18-year-old Rey in his autobiography and was convinced that Rey had no future in the business and would be lucky to be working ring crew, but didn't have the heart to tell him that.

* FollowTheLeader: Recently, the WWE imported Sin Cara - known in Mexico as 'Wrestling/{{Mistico}}'. [[HolyShitQuotient Skew-inducing]] [[CrazyAwesome aerial moves aside,]] there's little denying the fact that Rey Mysterio's [[WinTheCrowd sustained popularity]] in the 'E was a major factor in them going back to the well, so to speak.
** They did the same a few years before, with Wrestling/UltimoDragon, [=Psicosis=], Super Crazy and Juventud Guerrera, as well as midget wrestlers like Mascarita Sagrada and Tzuki. Ultimo was popular but did not have the stage personality to be involved in storylines, and Juventud got fired for bad behavior. Psicosis didn't get over with the WWE fans for some reason and got released; Super Crazy was pretty popular until it became clear that he wasn't getting a push, ever. The midget division ended quickly due to there being no real plot behind it. WWE's short lived Cruiserweight division was largely patterned for Mysterio, but ended due to the company's toning down of high flying moves after several wrestlers (for instance Brock Lesnar) had injuries performing them.
