* ShoutOut: Kane's costume seems to run the gamut of American popular culture, evoking various "dark" or Gothic" things. The red-and-black mask he wore (and never took off) between 1997 and 2003 looked eerily familiar to the bondage mask that was the unofficial logo of metal band Music/QuietRiot during the 1980s, while the iron mask he wore during his entrances during his 2011-2012 heel run had a vibe of either [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]] or [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees]], depending on which color you imagined it to be. Meanwhile, the black tights with red stitches across them that have been part of his costume for the majority of his career look remarkably similar to those donned by Creator/MichellePfeiffer for her role as Catwoman in ''BatmanReturns''; others might be reminded of [[EdwardScissorhands Edward Scissorhands]], or Brandon Lee in ''Film/TheCrow''.

* XPacHeat: "The Demon" Kane of 2014 is a complete and absolute heat vacuum. Literally every time that his pyro goes off, the crowd knows that something terrible is going to happen. One cause of this seems to be the opinion that it's a blatant retread of his "Embrace The Hate" feud with JohnCena from a few years prior, only with Cena and Wrestling/ZackRyder's roles combined into Wrestling/DanielBryan this time. The fact that, after Bryan's temporary departure due to injury, Kane has been very little besides the Authority's lackey (such as actively helping Wrestling/SethRollins win his Money in the Bank briefcase and nearly throwing the match for himself to do the same for Randy Orton with the title) and a punching back for John Cena and Wrestling/RomanReigns has done little to give the audience any reason to care about him.

** Is possibly this again in his 2015 run as both Corporate Kane & Demon Kane. All signs point to him playing mind games with Seth Rollins for revenge, alternating between his Corporate persona when he needs to use the power to setup anything or feign innocence and The Demon persona to personally attack Rollins.

* FoeYay: With Wrestling/TheBigShow, ("You complete me"), Wrestling/RobVanDam, [[IncestSubtext his own brother]], [[Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr Rey Mysterio]], [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]]...Kane's an intense guy, and when he's teaming with them, he has straight up HoYay.

* NightmareFuel: Say what you will about his new "corporate" appearance, but as shown in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOhVj4ZagRA this interview]], Kane can be just as terrifying in a suit and tie as he is in a mask.

* TheScrappy: Good lord, his 2015 team-up with Wrestling/TheBigShow is even more hated by fans than ''Wrestling/JohnCena'' (keep in mind Big Show's been a Scrappy for years now, but the fans ''just recently'' turned on Kane.)
