* EvilerThanThou: Attempted against Wrestling/AdamCole and Wrestling/BulletClub, saying it would be his great pleasure to keep the gold that fuels their merchandise empire out of their reach indefinitely. Then the storylines played out through The Elite's Website/YouTube channel culminated in an ROH ring with him replacing and helping fire Adam Cole from the Bullet Club. Not a subversion, as the rest of the Club still acknowledges him as being a special case of villainy and evil.

* CallingYourAttacks: Before he locks in his finishing move, Marty almost always leads the crowd in a rallying cry of "CHICKENWING!" He also has a habit of shouting "Superkick!" whenever he uses that move.



* ForTheEvulz: According to [[http://ftw.usatoday.com/2017/05/marty-scurll-villain-ring-of-honor this interview]], the reason why Scurll enjoys snapping people's fingers so much is because "The Villain gets off on the idea of disgusting the crowd and telling the crowd to keep the noise down while he's doing it...that makes him a little bit sicker so he enjoys that he sickened the crowd."
