** Averted. The aforementioned abusive childhood of Vince is never brought up in storylines when he's a heel. Also inverted as he's this to his family and numerous others.
** A few of his more subtle Heel feuds are in fact started because his employees, even supposed Faces, are genuinely complacent, disrespectful or downright volatile towards him, sometimes at ''very'' inopportune times. Just his replies of extreme DisproportionateRetribution can easily make them the lesser of two evils. These are of course also overshadowed by cases Vince is just insanely petty.

others. More than a few spots hint to Vince's in-universe life being thoroughly unpleasant however.

These are of course also overshadowed by cases Vince ''thinks'' he's a mistreated employer but is just insanely petty.

** {{Subverted|Trope}} in 2003 during Vince's feud with Hulk Hogan. Vince ''tried'' a complex scheme to fire Hogan, but failed... so he simply decided to not book Hogan, and instead just pay him to stay home. [[CharlieBrownFromOuttaTown "Mr. America"]] would soon appear to avenge Hogan's honor; however [[TooDumbToLive Mr America unmasked himself to be Hogan to the MSG audience,]] thus giving [[TheBadGuyWins Vince the loophole he needed to fire Hogan]].

** Wrestling/TedDiBiase, when presented with his Million Dollar Man gimmick, was told that it was the gimmick Vince himself would use if he were to become a wrestler.

** He also had a truce with Steve Austin when he saved Stephanie from the Ministry of Darkness. Subverted, of course, in that Vince was in on it all along.
* EvenEvilHasStandards:
** Vince was horrified to see that Wrestling/BrockLesnar tossed Zack Gowen, one-legged wrestler, down a set of stairs. Vince pleaded with Brock not to do it, without success.
** He was also aghast when [[Wrestling/KevinNash Diesel]] used Mad Dog Vachon's prosthetic leg as a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFyCQlbO7VA weapon]].
** Out of character, after the famous Hell in a Cell match between [[Wrestling/MickFoley Mankind]] and Wrestling/TheUndertaker, Vince went to see Mick Foley (who had taken some of the most dangerous bumps in ''wrestling history'' during the match and carried on) backstage and said ''"Mick, you have no idea how much I appreciate what you just did, but I never want to see that again."''

** According to Wrestling/JimCornette, this is actually how he walks in real life. He exaggerates and plays it up on camera, of course, but he does apparently have that strut in his personal life, and supposedly part of why he incorporates it into his character & exaggerates it so much is because he gets playfully mocked for it among his own inner circle.

* SuperOCD: To an almost legendary degree. For example, Jim Cornette tells a story that Vince would keep an electric razor in his briefcase and use it several times a day to literally ''scour'' his face clean of stubble.

He also finds the reflex of sneezing abhorrent and will even call out others for doing so in his presence.

** They're "championship titles", NOT "belts". Wrestling/CMPunk referenced this during a Jimmy Kimmel Live sketch in which he met a young Wrestling/JohnCena fan. Apparently belts are only the replicas you buy in stores.
