Vampiro (Ian Richard Hodgkinson, 1998-2000)
  • Arch-Enemy: In his WCW run he was kayfabe enemies with Sting. In real life, he's had issues with Konnan, Chris Jericho, Eddie Guerrero, Juventud Guerrera and Sean Waltman, to name a few.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette
  • Fan Nickname: Other wrestlers often call him Vamps.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: He made his name in Mexico, where being a North American rockstar character made him very popular with the ladies. In Canada and the US, he's mostly known for his brief time in WCW and TNA (in neither place was he a big star) as well as his association with Insane Clown Posse. As a result of his success in Mexico, he has lived there for many years and learned fluent Spanish.
  • Goth
  • Identical Stranger: in his early career as a Long-Haired Pretty Boy he resembled Michale Graves. Ironically, by the time the latter became famous as a Misfit, Vampiro had dropped the look, and gone for a different one that DID feature Misfits corpse paint.
  • Juggalo: To the point where he hung out with the Insane Clown Posse and The Misfits.
  • Lightning Bruiser
  • Limited Move Arsenal: He primarily uses striking attacks such as chops and kicks, with only occasional grapple moves such as his piledriver finisher. However, this worked ok with WCW's tendency towards short matches.
  • Newer Than They Think: He didn't wear his distinctive corpse paint until WCW, when he became friends with The Misfits and they designed it for him.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: His finishing moves are named Vampiro's Bite and the Nail in the Coffin.
  • Power Stable:
    • The Dead Pool, with Raven and ICP
    • The New Blood
    • The Dark Carnival, with ICP, the Demon and the Great Muta
  • Satellite Character: Has become most well-known for being associated with Sting in the company's final years. Even now, a least half of all questions directed towards Vampiro in his shoot interviews have to do with his feud against Sting.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: His accent is a distinctive combination of Canadian English with Mexican inflections, primarily due to the fact he used Spanish so much whilst working in Mexico.
