!!! "Sorry, about your damn tropes!":
* TheAlcoholic[=/=]DrunkenMaster: Well, he did ride a beer cooler to the ring, and he still carries at least one bottle almost everywhere he goes.
* AmazonChaser: In direct contrast to [[StayInTheKitchen Bobby Roode]]
* ArchEnemy: Triple X (Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels[=/=]Wrestling/LowKi[=/=]Elix Skipper), Daniels[=/=]Wrestling/AJStyles, [[Wrestling/{{Rhyno}} Rhino]], [=LAX=], [[Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys Team 3-D]], [[Wrestling/JamesMitchell the New Church]], Gunner.
* BadassBeard: Usually covering almost all his face but not particularly thick
* BadassLongcoat: His entire career in TNA, with the exception of most of Beer Money's run.
* BashBrothers: A frequent tag specialist, Storm has held the TNA tag team titles with three different partners.
* BerserkButton: Cheating in drinking contests, spiking drinks, people who try to pass off non alcoholic beverage as the real thing, messing with his family...
* BoringInvincibleHero
** A complaint of the IWC. Not so much that he's invincible, but Storm's "drunken cowboy" character to many fans has grown stale and they feel he needs a reboot, not unlike his former partner BobbyRoode, who went from "rich tycoon" to "It Factor".
** Then Storm going from "drunken cowboy" to "evil redneck crusader" at the turning point of his problems with Gunner, making him less boring. This makes him less boring but continual clean wins over baby faces have caused some to see as too invincible.
* BraidsOfAction: A braided ponytail.
* BreakupBreakout: The more successful member of his previous team with Chris Harris (AKA Braden Walker), America's Most Wanted. Subverted with Beer Money, while Storm has become more popular (as in being the face), Bobby Roode has been more successful when it comes to winning titles.
* BuxomIsBetter: One of the reasons he enjoys Wrestling/{{Jacqueline}} company is because she's stacked. Seeing her drunk off her ass and pouring beer down Traci Brook's shirt made his day. He also makes it clear that unlike Jacqueline, Traci's "gifts" were about the only reason he had any time for her.
* CatchPhrase
** "Sorry, about your damn luck!"
** And with Beer Money:
-->'''James Storm:''' BEER!
-->'''Bobby Roode:''' MONEY!
* CoolHat: Dropped with his latest FaceHeelTurn.
* {{Expy}}: Considered to be one of both Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin and Wrestling/ShawnMichaels.
* GoodIsDumb: Dumb enough to put his number 1 contendership on the line just because Bobby Roode made a comment about his daughter. [[CaptainObvious He lost.]]
* GrievousBottleyHarm: He "blinded" Chris Harris by hitting him with a beer bottle.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Remember when he turned on Chris Harris and ended AMW by doing this? Beer Money ended the other way around.
* JerkassHasAPoint
** Storm complaining about Gunner stealing the World Title case and throwing in the towel during Storm's tournament match with Wrestling/BobbyRoode, which took place the night after Roode ambushed Storm in a bar. While Storm really has no room to argue on losing out on the "Feast or Fired" briefcase (Gunner low-shotted him and took the case, which had the World Title shot) since it was every man for themselves, he does bring up that he's been in bar fights before and doesn't always wrestle at 100% the following night. Plus, he specifically told Gunner not to get involved in his street fight with Roode, and yet there he was throwing in the towel.
** He also accused Gunner of sabotaging him by telling Roode where he was that night so that Roode would jump him. You'd think this is InsaneTrollLogic, since he has no evidence of this and it's probably more likely Roode took an educated guess based on being his tag team partner for 3 years, but stranger things have happened in wrestling.
** Turns out, the latter wasn't the case. Storm realized how jealous and bitter he appeared when his daughter asked him why he was mad at Gunner, so he decided to support Gunner's rise to the top. Only to [[FaceHeelTurn screw him out of the world title at the last second]], becoming a vicious and hate-filled redneck avenger of his own cause.
* PapaWolf: Messing with his daughter has serious consequences. Just ask Wrestling/BobbyRoode, who faced serious consequences like [[ComicallyMissingThePoint ...a World Heavyweight Title shot?]]
* PowerStable:
** Planet [[Wrestling/JeffJarrett Jarrett]]
** [=Fourtune=]-> Wrestling/{{Fortune}}
** Immortal
* RedBaron: "The Tennessee Cowboy"
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: When in America's Most Wanted he went on one against LA-X after Hernandez boarder tossed Gail Kim. He also went on one against Mr. Anderson for using his offer for a friendly drink to ambush James Storm.
* ShoutOut: Does the last name of Storm and the Last Call Superkick, remind anyone of a certain Lance Storm?
* SpearCounterpart: To Jacqueline during her "Miss Tennessee" and TNA runs.
* SpitefulSpit: He may love his beer but is not above spitting it on those who spite him.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Has had this with Bobby Roode in recent one-off Beer Money reunions.
* WeaponOfChoice: Beer bottle.
* WrestlingDoesntPay: For a small period his character had the makings of a BadGuyBar called "Storm's Bar & Grille" in the works, with Bobby Roode hanging around the place. Knowing Roode's character at the time, one could've implied that he'd made an investment into Storm's venture. This idea would be dropped when they became Beer Money, however.
