* HillariousInHindsight: The fake Undertaker is later brought back repackaged with a biker gimmick. A couple years later guess who is repackaged as a biker.



* InternetBackdraft: Go on a forum and state that you feel The Streak should end. Go ahead, do it. Now go ahead and roast the marshmallows on the flames.

* [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments Crowning Moment Of Heartwarming]]: The Undertaker and [[Wrestling/{{Kane}} Glenn Jacobs]] appearing on ''Series/AmericasMostWanted'' to appeal for viewers to turn in someone who beat one of their fans might just edge out Taker's farewell to Wrestling/RicFlair. Both are a pretty big deal for this guy, given the character he plays, [[DarkIsNotEvil though not only is he a]] MeanCharacterNiceActor, the former was during the [[BadassNormal Bikertaker days]] rather than his long running [[OurZombiesAreDifferent death zombie]] gimmick.

***Triple H, who was himself injured but able to leave on his own, was visibly concerned and even went to help Undertaker, only to be waved away by the official.

**Every time Undertaker comes to the ring, he'll stand outside on the corner of the ring apron, and motion with his hands to bring the arena lights back up. Sometimes he slowly raises his arms, sometimes he'll quickly throw them up. During one episode of Raw, Undertaker raised his arms quickly -- and caught a faceful of Kane's pyro.

* SacredCow: His impeccable reputation amongst smarks means it's a ''bad'' idea to try criticizing Undertaker unjustly.

* MagnumOpus: The general consensus is that the best matches of 'Taker's career (and maybe even ''WrestleMania'' history) are his matches against Wrestling/ShawnMichaels and Wrestling/TripleH during 2009-2012. Fans are mostly split between his first match against HBK and his last match against Trips as THE best one, however.

* FairForItsDay:
** It's definitely a series that needs to be viewed with an understanding of the historical context. Like, if Kirk snapped his fingers and had a yeoman sit on his face it wouldn't be that shocking. Not just in the way that every female member of the crew is practically nude and being sexually harassed all the time, but also the lighthearted "aw shucks" tone with which the show addresses it.
** Nothing so bad as James Bond [[{{Film/Goldfinger}} pimp-handing a lesbian so hard it turns her straight]], but it does occasionally cross the line: Rand being molested by Kirk and Spock telling her to enjoy is particularly disarming, adding nothing to the scene and [[CharacterDerailment undermining all three characters]]. This is the one thing that really bleeds over from the 60s. The fact that this show was considered a beacon of progressiveness shows just how backwards things were back then.
** When Creator/NeilDegrasseTyson was talking to Takei about how Uhura was an example of how progressive the show was, Takei remarked, "Please! Uhura was the secretary. She answered the phone..." Go George!

* NarmCharm: Most smarks know that feeling: even as kids, it everyone as odd. "Why is a supernatural being such as The Undertaker and a Demonic being like Kane doing in a wrestling ring?", but you just go along with it as "How ''else'' are they gonna earn money?"

* GrowingTheBeard: Undertaker was pretty much a one-trick pony, until the Mankind feud in 1996. The match against Mankind at ''King of the Ring'' in 1996 is one of THE key moments in his career.

Undertaker was pretty much a one-trick pony, until the Mankind feud in 1996. The match against Mankind at ''King of the Ring'' in 1996 is one of THE key moments in his career.
** Taker was forced to work a slow, "zombie" style which meant good matches were pretty rare unless he was in with somebody like Bret Hart who could run circles around it. Once he started expanding his style, he improved a lot.
