* MemeticBadass: In ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV''. Just how badass can you be when Creator/KeithDavid, another Memetic Badass in the game that everyone respects, respects you? (This may also be a reference to David and Piper working together on ''Film/TheyLive''. Speaking of which…)

* DudeNotFunny: His, let's say, unusual choice of attire for his ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} VI'' match [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1w6z8f_wwf-wrestlemania-vi-roddy-piper-vs-allen-brown_sport with Bad News Brown.]]
** Not helped by Wrestling/AndreTheGiant allegedly deciding to switch out the solution to get that stuff off Piper with water after the match, leaving Piper to go through customs looking like that.

Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: During a 2003 interview which took place at around the same time he returned to WWE, Piper predicted that he was "not going to make 65" due to his poor health. How right he was...

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeEgo: Piper would always piss off Vince by calling him "Junior." He had previously worked for Vince Sr., and had little good to say about his heir. Zero fucks.

* ProtectionFromEditors: Piper rarely did a job, and Wrestling/HulkHogan made no secret of his displeasure at never getting to do so during their feud. Interestingly, Piper did take a (now famous) pinfall loss at ''Wrestlemania VIII'' to Wrestling/BretHart.

* ValuesDissonance: Some things Piper did in the mid-80s would get the WWE kicked off the air nowadays. Part of Piper's {{Heel}} schtick was that he wasn't just obnoxious, but bigoted, with some notably racist diatribes at Mr. T and at least one occasion where he angrily used an ethnic slur against Wrestling/BrunoSammartino.

* [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments Crowning Moment Of Heartwarming]]: His famous ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} VIII'' match with Wrestling/BretHart, where, after teasing a heel turn (and wielding a ring bell at that!) he just couldn't bring himself to screw over his old friend. Bret ultimately wins, but the two embrace afterward in a ''very'' rare show of respect from Piper.
** Piper was voted to be Wrestling/RicFlair's partner at ''Cyber Sunday 2006,'' but had to be withdrawn from storylines shortly afterward when it was discovered that he had cancer. Piper made a full recovery and credits the fans' vote as being what saved his life.
