!!Tropes invoked by the actor:
* AwesomeMcCoolname: Seriously, just say it out loud. ''Kane Hodder''.
* BeardOfEvil: Conveniently sports one, much like fellow go to film villain actor, Creator/TimCurry.
* CoveredInScars: You often can't see them, but a fire stunt gone wrong early in his career left Kane with massive third-degree burns on half his body. The scarring wouldn't have been so bad had the hospital treating him not [[WorstAid been completely inept]].
* EnforcedMethodActing: Two cases in ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVIITheNewBlood'': One of ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'''s signature moments, Jason kicking the sleeping bag murder victims, was a result of Kane getting frustrated from several retakes of the scene. And another well-known scene, Jason catching on fire at the climax of the film, was the result of the suit Kane was wearing catching on fire and not having it put out until the scene was finished.
* GameShowAppearance: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dh5q59aJO4k Once appeared]] on the 2000 version of ''Series/ToTellTheTruth''.
* {{Juggalo}}: He even has a modified version of the "Hatchet Man" logo on his forearm, replacing the Hatchet with a [[MacheteMayhem machete]].
* [[RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActorFilm Mean Character, Nice Actor]]: Reported to be a friendly man, who works with children at burn centers, and also quite kind and amicable towards his fans in conventions and the like. Also once appeared on ''Series/BeakmansWorld'' during a segment about stunts.
* MadeOfIron: As noted above, he survived a horrific burns in a stunt gone wrong, as well as an accident on-set. Specifically the scene at the end of in ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVIITheNewBlood'', where Jason is lit on fire. That wasn't supposed to happen, and Kane was on fire for over a minute because he didn't want the scene to get ruined by the fire extinguishers.
* NameOfCain: Pretty amusing for the guy who's most well known role is a serial killer.
* RoleReprisal: He provides motion capture for Jason Vorhees in ''VideoGame/FridayThe13thTheGame'', a game made over fifteen years after the last time he portrayed the iconic slasher in ''Film/JasonX''.
* StuntDouble: His main job, although he's best known for repeatedly playing the masked, voiceless Jason Voorhees, which involves a lot of muscle and stunt work.
* {{Squick}}: He can ''vomit on command''.
** At one point he decided to go into detail about this in the audio commentary for ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVIIIJasonTakesManhattan''. He mentions that the scene where Jason vomits was done by him [[NauseaFuel drinking a gallon of water an hour before the shoot and regurgitating what was left during the scene]].
* {{Troll}}: He once used his Jason costume to scare a man between shots in ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVIITheNewBlood''.
