* DrillSergeantNasty: His original heel gimmick. Applies to his ''G.I. Joe'' counterpart as well, as he was brought on board for the express purpose of keeping the Joes in fighting shape.

* NoIndoorVoiceNoIndoorVoice: His gimmick is a drill sergeant. What do you expect? Though he is very soft spoken when he isn't Sarging.

* RedemptionQuest: Following SummerSlam 1991, in which Slaughter and his team ([[Wrestling/TheIronSheik Col. Mustafa]] and General Adnan) lost to Wrestling/HulkHogan and Wrestling/TheUltimateWarrior, a storyline was started that had Slaughter reflect on what his Iraqi sympathizer heel gimmick cost him and what it would take to regain trust of Americans. The path was started in a series of vignettes where he recited the Pledge of Allegiance with fans and school students. His face status was re-established in full when he helped save one-time adversary Hacksaw Jim Duggan from a 2-on-1 attack by Mustafa and Adnan. [[note]]Of course, it wasn't enough to stop fans from voting Slaughter the Most Hated Wrestler of the Year in the ''Pro Wrestling Illustrated'' magazine's 1991 year-end awards.[[/note]]
