* BilingualBonus: As part of The Rougeau Brothers' [[FaceHeelTurn heel turn]], they had a DoItYourselfThemeSong called "All American Boys." The second verse included the lyrics, "''On peut pas les sentir/Dans le monde ils sont les pires/On aime les faire facher quand qu'on dit'' 'We love the USA'." The French lyrics translated to "We can't stand them/They are the worst in the world/We like to anger them when we say 'We love the USA'." This elevated what may have appeared to be a standard FunnyForeigner act to something nastier for the benefit of French-speaking fans.

!! "We're All American Tropes":
* AlwaysGetsHisMan: In his theme as The Mountie.
* BilingualBonus: As part of The Rougeau Brothers' [[FaceHeelTurn heel turn]], they had a DoItYourselfThemeSong called "All American Boys." The second verse included the lyrics, "''On peut pas les sentir/Dans le monde ils sont les pires/On aime les faire facher quand qu'on dit'' 'We love the USA'." The French lyrics translated to "We can't stand them/They are the worst in the world/We like to anger them when we say 'We love the USA'." This elevated what may have appeared to be a standard FunnyForeigner act to something nastier for the benefit of French-speaking fans.
* CanadaEh: He was born in Saint-Sulpice, Quebec.
* CivvieSpandex: Wrestles in his Mountie gear.
* CoolShades: As The Mountie.
* DirtyCop: As The Mountie.
* DreadfulMusician: Sings in both his Mountie and Quebecers themes... off-key.
* ForeignWrestlingHeel: Played straight as The Mountie, and as a member of The Quebecers/The Amazing French-Canadians (in WCW). Cleverly played as a member of The Fabulous Rougeau Brothers, since they would carry little American Flags with them to the ring and were billed from Memphis, TN, the hometown of their manager, Wrestling/JimmyHart.
* HumiliatingWager: Lost a Jailhouse Match to The Big Bossman at ''[=SummerSlam=] 91''.
* IAmSong: His theme was like this.
-->''"I'm the Mountie\\
I'm handsome, I'm brave, I'm strong\\
I'm the Mountie\\
And I enforce the law"''
* NiceHat: As The Mountie.
* SiblingTeam: With his older brother Raymond as the Fabulous Rougeau Brothers.
* StunGuns: His WeaponOfChoice.
* TagTeam: The Fabulous Rougeau Brothers (with Raymond Rougeau), The Quebecers (with Pierre Oulette)
* {{Troll}}: Their "All-American Boys" theme and gimmick was very much this. To this day, people who comment on the video someone posted of the song ''still'' don't get the joke.
* WrestlingDoesntPay: A wrestling mountie.
* WrestlingFamily: A third-generation performer of a ''five''-generation family, going back to his grandfather Ed Auger.
