Then Icarus walked over and told Crossbones, "Good job with Franchise/CaptainAmerica," and Crossbones responded with a chipper "Thanks, buddy."

* TheUnfavourite: In the Order of the Neo-Solar Temple, as Mantis would fawn over Hydra, Tim Donst and Delirious while ignoring or belittling Crossbones, as seen in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJJ1IqbqQY8 this promo]] from ''CHIKARA Three-Fisted Tales'', November 22, 2009. This is despite the fact that Crossbones was the only one who was loyal, as Hydra left, and Delirious and Tim Donst both turned on Mantis and joined the BDK, and that Crossbones was usually the OnlySaneMan of the group.

** The Dark Army ([[Wrestling/HunterJohnston Delirious]], Ophidian and the Batiri) ran in during the Envoy-Team Wrestling/RingOfHonor (Mike Bennett and Wrestling/TheYoungBucks [Matt and Nick Jackson]) tournament final at ''King of Trios 2012 Night III'', September 16, 2012, with Crossbones again involving himself, taking out Delirious and helping to fight off the Batiri.
* CoolMask: As seen above.
* DeadpanSnarker: Oh yeah. As one example, he crossed this with a blatant parody of SoBeautifulItsACurse at ''Young Lions Cup III Night II'', July 23, 2005. After his opponent Shiima Xion had introduced himself as the first Filipino model wrestler, Crossbones [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mda4Mbtiuns claimed]] to be the first male model from PartsUnknown. He added that he had to wear a mask because all the ladies would run to him if he wrestled without it.
* DemBones: His appearance is of a skeleton, though not played up as much as it is with Wrestling/LaParka.
* FacialMarkings: As Oni in CZW.
* FinishingMove: Friggin' Sweet Driver, Enzuigiri

** GodzillaThreshold: He made his return to CHIKARA at ''CHIKARA Aniversario: School Reunion'' to face Merlok, a big wrestling piranha who has been brutalizing his opponents.[[note]]At CHIKARA Hour of Power #7, April 23, 2017, Merlok's match with Ashley Vox went to a no-contest, due to Merlok attacking Ashley's cornerwoman Jawsolyn, first dumping her on garbage cans, then throwing her around backstage and finally shoving her into a refrigerator. CHIKARA Director of Fun Mike Quackenbush, who was on commentary, said that he was cutting the stream. The copyright notice then came up on the screen.[[/note]] Merlok defeated Crossbones, meaning that Merlok's destructive behavior will continue.
* IAmBigBoned: Played with. Mentioned by name in [[https://twitter.com/itscrossbones/status/127013251543339008 this Twitter post]]. Other times he talks about losing weight.
* {{Jerkass}}: Toward his partner Mano Metalico in 2005, since, at ''CHIKARA Tag World Grand Prix 2005 Night I'', February 18, 2005, and at ''CHIKARA Don't Eat the Black One'' on March 19th, Crossbones would use Mano to demonstrate how to kick someone. At the latter show, he even brought in people from the audience to kick Mano.
* [[KickChick Kick Dude]][=/=]LightningBruiser: At his best, he could fire off kicks like Wrestling/UltimoDragon. He defeated Jervis Cottonbelly at ''CHIKARA Little Creatures'', October 21, 2005, by kicking him repeatedly to set up the pin.
* ManBitesMan: He bit [=Unstable=] member STIGMA's arm during the ''Trios Increibles'' match where he teamed with Team F.I.S.T. member Icarus and [=Unstable=] member Colin Delaney against [=UltraMantis=] Black, STIGMA and Team F.I.S.T. member Chuck Taylor at ''CHIKARA Cibernetico Increible'', October 18th, 2009.

* PartsUnknown: "Jerk Town, NJ"
* PowerStable:
** Sweet 'n' Sour International
** The Order of the Neo-Solar Temple
** The Spectral Envoy
* ProductPlacement: The [=DVD=] cover for ''CHIKARA The Mint Condition'' was a picture of Crossbones holding a York Peppermint Pattie with the logo in full view.
* PutOnABus: As a result of Delirious breaking his clavicle in May 2010. He wouldn't be seen again until ''Martyr Yourself to Caution''.
* RealMenWearPink: Wore a pink mask for a time.
* RedBaron[=/=]NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: "The Heavyweight Horror"
* ''[[{{Heel}} Rudo]]'': His primary role, until Mantis [[HeelFaceTurn turned tecnico]].
* TattooedCrook: His arms are ''covered'' with tattoos. He also did Mantis' tats.

This is despite the fact that Crossbones was the only one who was loyal, as Hydra left, and Delirious and Tim Donst both turned on Mantis and joined the BDK, and that Crossbones was usually the OnlySaneMan of the group.
* WouldHitAGirl: Came close to the parodied variation in his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-COR1PS672k promo]] before the mixed trios match at ''CHIKARA The Global Gauntlet Night I'', October 18, 2008, where he teamed with Ryan and Madison Eagles in a loss to the Colony (Fire Ant and Soldier Ant) and [[Wrestling/BillieKay Jessie McKay]], saying, "Equal rights, equal fights!"
** AscendedMeme: Wrestling/MikeQuackenbush has used the "Equal rights, equal fights" line in reference to CHIKARA eliminating gender barriers, and Wrestling/HeidiLovelace used it in her [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0ZUKU1lgSw final CHIKARA promo]], before her match with Arik Cannon at ''CHIKARA White Rabbit''.
