L-R, Back Row: Palumbo, Jindrak, O'Haire, Stasiak. L-R, Front Row: Johnny, Sanders, Reno
  • Bald of Evil: Johnny, Reno
  • Butt-Monkey: Sanders on occasion. The night he debuted he got hit in the head with a weapon at the conclusion of his match, hit in the head with another weapon as soon as he got backstage, hit in the head by two different people with two different weapons, and finally got Kanyon Kutter'd.
  • Breakup Breakout: Palumbo and O'Haire. Before the stable even formed, Palumbo and Stasiak had teamed together, and Jindrak and O'Haire had teamed. During the stable's run, Palumbo and O'Haire began teaming together and after the breakup were the only members to continue being successful in WCW. Of course, once WCW closed and the InVasion happened, they were jobbed out in short order.
    • Palumbo was the breakout as compared to O'Haire in WWE as well, being part of the successful Billy & Chuck team. O'Haire was actually lined up for a big push with a new Devil's Advocate heel gimmick, but then he was placed in the excreable Mr. America/Zach Gowan/Roddy Piper angle as Piper's lackey. As the only person in the angle who could actually work, O'Haire took all the bumps and quickly ceased to be intimidating, then ceased to be over.
  • Genius Bruiser: Stasiak in Real Life
  • Glass Cannon: Sanders.
  • I Have the High Ground: Sanders and surprisingly O'Haire.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Everyone but Reno and Sanders.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Reno
  • Punny Name: Based off Natural Born Killers.
  • Take That!: Based off of how O'Haire was from South Carolina, they gave him the North Carolina-born Jeff Hardy's Swanton Bomb as a Finishing Move, calling it the Seanton Bomb
  • Ur-Example: Of what The Nexus would be ten years later in WWE.
