  • Fat Slob: Basically the entirety of the Bastion Booger gimmick was that he was a fat, disgusting slop who was sloppy and gluttonous.

  • The Corrupter: To Mark Henry during his (embarrassing) sexual chocolate gimmick.
  • Depraved Bisexual: During his "World's Largest Love Machine" run, he preferred women but had no problem forcibly dry humping guys and got pops from the crowd throughout the run until he attacked Lillian Garcia.
  • Fat Bastard: Most noticeable in WWECW, where he stopped covering it up.
  • Gender-Blender Name: A guy named Mabel?
  • The Giant: In this case though, a lot of people really could not perform their moves on him, either due to his weight, his lack of mobility or his sheer girth.
  • Hired Guns: By JBL to deal with the Undertaker (didn't work) and Matt Striker to deal with the Boogeyman (mostly worked).
  • I Have Many Names: See above and add King Mabel after his King of the Ring win.
  • Kavorka Man: Somehow continued to have women seeking his affection despite his publicized theft of The Godfather's Hoes, which he stole to pimp out to struggling sex addicts and for crushing Trish Stratus for not giving him sex. Lillian Garcia would go on to propose to him.
  • Mighty Glacier: He might have been a little faster than most men with his build but was slow by wrestling standards. He also won his fair share of squash matches so apparently that did not hinder him too much.
  • Power Stable: The Ministry of Darkness -> The Corporate Ministry.
  • Red Baron: "The World's Largest Love Machine" as Viscera in 2005.
  • Scary Black Man: No, there is nothing scary about a five hundred pound implied rapist.
  • Stout Strength: For all that fat, he had muscles under it.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Ask the Godfather hos, Trish and Lillian.
