* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: He and Wrestling/AkiraMaeda had a match in New Japan in which they both refused to do the job, so Akira floored Andre by kicking his legs a lot. Then Andre threw Akira out of the ring. When Maeda came back for more Andred was now in the mood to job but Maeda refused to go over. Then Antonio Inoki came out and demanded the match end, much to the audience's confusion.

* MemeticMutation: "André The Giant has a posse." A meme that started ''before'' the Internet.

** Purportedly one of André's dreams, which he confessed to his agent near the end of his life, was to go and see a live theatre show. His agent offered to buy a couple of tickets so the two of them could go see a show, but André declined, explaining that - thanks to his size - he wouldn't be able to fit in the seats and he would block the view of anyone sitting behind him.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Was arguably bigger in Japan than he was in America, which is saying something.

* [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Crowning Moment of Funny]]: Wrestling/BobbyHeenan recalls a story during the feud between André and the Wrestling/UltimateWarrior. The two had a spot where Warrior would clothesline André into the ropes so that his arms would get trapped (a spot André loved doing), but Warrior kept hitting André too hard. After a couple nights of putting up with this, André got fed up. When the spot came the next night, André just stuck out his fist and let Warrior smack into it at full steam. After that, Warrior learned not to fuck around with André The Giant.

** Andre and Wrestling/PedroMorales vs. Wrestling/CaptainLouAlbano and Afa, August 23, 1980. Just from the description you can probably see it. Pedro plays RickyMorton as the heels do everything in their power to keep him from tagging in Andre. Of course, Andre gets tagged in and the fun begins. At one point Afa is lying on the mat and Andre is standing on his ''hair.'' Eventually, Albano takes the hint and bails. Pedro whips Afa into Andre's boot and pins him. You can't go wrong with a comedy match with actual psychology.

** Bad News Allen once confronted André about this, and ''André'' backed down. Despite Andre being a little over a foot taller and, at most, some 250 lbs. or so bigger than Allen, André knew better than to mess with a guy who was an Olympic bronze medalist in Judo.
