* GodwinsLaw: Downplayed. He faced [[Wrestling/DieBruderschaftDesKreuzes The BDK]]'s Jakob Hammermeier at ''The Marta Complex'' on September 27, 2015. He didn't specifically call Jakob a Nazi, but, he did say that, just like in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, Kentucky was coming out on top over UsefulNotes/{{Germany}}, which is what happened, since he beat Jakob with a Superkick.

* GreenEyedMonster: Envy was the motivation that led to him leading The Gentleman's Club into EVOLVE. He once had [[TheAce the best record in the promotion]] but he [[EveryYearTheyFizzleOut couldn't win when it really counted]], unlike his Ronin partners Rich Swann and Johnny Gargano, causing him to lash out at them.

!! "Chucky Tropes":
* IHaveManyNames: Since losing the rights to be known as Chuck Taylor, he's used Scoot Tatum, Rick Beanbag, Bugg Nevans, Touch Phillips, "The Office" Stewie Scrivens, "Bareback" Benny Figg, Trent Baretta (later claimed he had to drop this one after receiving a cease and desist from WWE), Karate Durling, "Hardwood" Rich Mahogany, "Top Shelf" Slim Perkins, and "This Is" Howie Do-In. Eventually (after disappearing for several months) he settled on DUSTIN.
* LethalJokeCharacter: Sure, he's goofy, but he won the 2007 Young Lion's Cup, the inaugural Rey de Voladores, 1/3 of the winners of 2009 King of Trios, and retired Worker Ant.
* {{Metaphorgotten}}: From his [[http://www.cagematch.net/?id=93&nr=111 promo]] at ''Best Imitation of Myself'':
-->"I'm a King of Wrestling, baby. I'm a king. I feel like Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio in ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}''. I'm gonna stand on the edge of the ring, they're gonna hold me high… except I'm not gonna die in the end, because Creator/KateWinslet is not gonna not let me up on… seriously, there was a door floatin', that door was big enough for two people, seriously. Come on, Kate, let Leo up there, right. You could have saved much people from cryin'. I cried… I… I…um…"
* [[SweetHomeAlabama My Old Kentucky Home]]: He's from Murray and his RedBaron is "The Kentucky Gentleman." At ''Small But Mighty'', October 7, 2011, which was held in Burlington, NC, he called "the dirty South" his hometown.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: It's easy to think he's harmless when he's shrieking while being knife edge chopped or appearing in goofy videos where he sleeps until 3 in the afternoon and admits he cried during the end of ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}''. However, he's won the 2007 Young Lion's Cup, the inaugural Rey de Voladores, 1/3 of the winners of 2009 King of Trios, retired the original Worker Ant and made Wrestling/BryanDanielson tap out.
* OneHitKill: His former finisher, the Omega Driver/Awful Waffle, has only been kicked out of ''twice'' in history.
* PutOnABus: Kept attempting to put himself on the bus for the greater part of 2015 by claiming that he was retiring. Finally succeeded in January 2016, as he was moved to the Alumni section of the roster. Unfortunately, this directly led to him losing the rights to the name, gimmick, and intellectual property associated with Chuck Taylor and having to change his name.
** Bussed out for real from May 2016 until mid-August 2016, under unknown circumstance
* RuleOfFunny: His "grenade," where he pulls out an invisible grenade and either throws it down on the mat or, as he did at ''Top Banana'', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBWHFcyw8Ec stick it in his opponent's tights]] and give him an Atomic Drop (knee to the tailbone). He's even done it ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-y_JkdFuOTA in slow motion!]]''
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Shrieks like an 8 year old girl when he's chopped. Sometimes also when put in holds and when being slammed down on the mat.
* ShoutOut: As part of his "retirement" tour in 2015, he promoted the hashtag "[=#DustinChecksOut=]", a reference to the Creator/JasonAlexander [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys orangutan]] comedy film ''Film/DunstonChecksIn''.
* SissyVillain: To a degree.
