* DracoInLeatherPants: At ''[=WrestleMania=] XIII'', he and Davey Boy defended the WWE World Tag Team Titles against Mankind (Mick Foley) and Vader, in a match where everyone was a heel. Owen was the only one who got cheers.
* DudeNotFunny: To this day, making fun of Owen's fatal accident is just something you don't do unless you want all of the internet yelling this at you.
** Really, pretty much the only thing that people make fun of about Owen is for [[MemeticMutation kicking Bret's leg out of his leg.]]
* FatalMethodActing: Famously died in a fall prior to the scripted one from a much greater height than intended.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Owen Hart's theme, Enough is Enough when he was with [[Wrestling/TheNationOfDomination the Nation]], or the Blackhart theme. In the song, it has Owen Hart shouting quotes. He is in character, but consider the following:
** "Come and take your best shot": Many critics thought the death was fake, and criticized the WWF for it.
** "I tried to be a nice guy": He stuck with his contract, he did everything that [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon Vince [=McMahon=]]](the Chairman), the writers, and bookers said. Owen was convinced by the crew that the zip-line was safe. He, being an incredible man, believed it.
** "I played by the rules": Supports the last quote.
** "You turned your backs on me": Possibly the WWF doing the show after his tragic fall.
** "I snapped": The cable snapped and this is what killed him. You could also view this as him making the decision to hang on the zip-line, being crazy enough to do such a thing.
** "I was a victim": Death.
** "Enough is Enough, and it's time for a change": Owen Hart isn't in the Hall of Fame yet, his widow, Martha Hart will not allow it.
** Go back and watch Over The Edge. The opening monologue by Wrestling/TheUndertaker is this. Especially considering how he's talking about "Your Heroes will fall" and all.
* HarsherInHindsight: Owen (as the Blue Blazer) actually tried the harness act before. Since the Blazer was supposed to be a buffoonish comic relief character, Owen intentionally got tangled up in the ropes, allowing his opponents to beat on him as be slowly descended to the floor.
* HilariousInHindsight: Owen once told Wrestling/MichaelCole, "you're full of crap." This was back when Cole was just a neutral announcer/interviewer, essentially a recycling of the same inept announcer character previously played by Sean Mooney and Todd Pettingill, and over a decade before Cole's 2010 heel turn.
* {{Tearjerker}}: His death at ''Over the Edge'', as well as the RAW paying tribute to him the following night.
* TooCoolToLive
* WTHCostumingDepartment: High Energy's puffy pants with the checkerboards on them.
