* RealityIsUnrealistic: The storyline where Triple H replaced him due to the Board placing a no-confidence vote against him seems extremely jarring at first glance, given that he's the majority owner (which gives him the final vote in almost everything). However, in RealLife, if the other owners can find enough sufficient cause (such as mismanagement in a way that endangers the entire company), then they can get a judge to legally block Vince's voting power indefinitely.

* BullyingADragon: He can make many cower before the control he has over the company, but all too often he'll overestimate just how much abuse his wrestlers will endure to keep their jobs [[WorthIt over kicking his ass]].

* BullyingADragon: He can make many cower before the control he has over the company, but all too often he'll overestimate just how much abuse his wrestlers will endure to keep their jobs [[WorthIt over kicking his ass]]. His biggest mistakes tend to involve trying to control certain wrestlers (e.g. ''Wrestling/TheUndertaker'') that he has no chance of controlling.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Vince was horrified to see BrockLesnar tossed Zack Gowen, one-legged wrestler, down a set of stairs. Vince pleaded with Brock not to do it without success.

** WCW ''Night of the Champions''. Was there really ever any doubt? Everyone knows Vince stood by helplessly for 84 weeks as Wrestling/EricBischoff steamrolled him in the ratings, jeering and mocking him all the while. Vince ''could'' have taken the high road and let the promotion have it's final day in the sun before The Great Changeover. Instead, he proceeded to make himself and Shane the focal point of ''[[Wrestling/WCWMondayNitro Nitro]]'', turning what could have been Flair and Sting riding off in glory and turning it into one big [=McMahon=] love-fest / PPV ad. Not that Eric wouldn't have done the same, and worse.

* BigBad: As a Heel. On the occasions that is is a Face, he's the BigGood. Since he's the boss of the entire company both on-screen and in real life, he's one of the few people who can be BOTH the BigGood AND the BigBad in any form of fiction. Though he plays the BigBad a lot more often, and sometimes his face turn is just part of his EvilPlan and he's EvilAllAlong(such as him being the Higher Power).

He also has decades of on-camera experience in the promotion; first as a play-by-play announcer, and, after 1997, as [[RepulsiveRingmaster the evil boss character in charge of the promotion]]. The subtle shift in his performance deserves to be studied at Julliard: Vince [=McMahon=] wore bow ties and [[EyeTake bugged his eyes out]] a lot. ''Mister'' [=McMahon=], on the other hand, led a family of super-villains, feuded with God, mocked [[Wrestling/JimRoss JR's]] health condition, and dressed up as a judge so that he can throw Wrestling/EricBischoff in a garbage truck.

** Vince out-of-character has also pulled some genuinely sleazy business moves to keep his company at the top (such as forcing the hand of several PPV providers for the inaugural Survivor Series by claiming if they aired Jim Crockett's Starrcade event instead of Survivor Series, they forfeit the right to air [=WrestleMania=] the next year).

* HellHasNewManagement: At one point Ross claimed that when Vince goes to Hell, he would quickly take it over, implying that Vince was even WORSE than Satan.



* LouisCypher: "Some say he's the devil himself." - Wrestling/JimRoss
** At one point Ross even claimed that when Vince goes to Hell, [[LikeABadassOutOfHell he would quickly take it over, implying that Vince was even WORSE than Satan]]. Vince was also the "Higher Power" of the Ministry, a Satanic cult, and branded himself a counterpart at war with God in "[[ParodyReligion [=McMahonism=]]]". As well, during the [=McMahonism=] storyline, Vince imitated Triple H's water-spitting entrance using holy water, then turned to his son Shane and said, "That kind of burns a little!" giving a hint of actual demonic influence. No wonder Shane asked him off-screen after that if he was going to Hell.

** That man brought '''ERIC BISCHOFF''' into the WWE, gave him a paycheck and a prominent spot on the show as the top heel authority figure for years. Vince never held a grudge as long as there was business to be done. Bret Hart, Nash and Hall, Hogan, Sable, New Age Outlaws, Jake Roberts, Warrior, Bruno Sammartino....all people who at one point or another had major issues with WWE, filed lawsuits against them, trashed them in the press, and yet, all were invited back for the sake of entertainment.\\\
