As usual, you can find the basics at The Other Wiki.

"These tropes are being sent directly to Touchdown City!":

  • The Atoner: In his March 4th, 2013 blog entry, he attempted to invoke this regarding his actions, blaming them on Veronica's influence in an attempt to get back in Dasher Hatfield's good graces.
    • While he feigned it prior to CHIKARA closing, he became it for real after some tough love from Dasher and a match between the two of them at the Wrestling Is Fun event "Cruel Summer". He even buried the hatchet with Archibald Peck at National Pro Wrestling Day 2014 via a Bear Hug.
      • Started doing it again at the tail end of 2015 after the loaded elbowpad he gave Dasher was discovered. Unfortunately, Dasher wasn't having any of it, giving Nazmaldun-as-UltraMantis the perfect opportunity to make another convert.
  • Brainwashed: By Nazmaldun, during a clip shown after Tightrope. As a result of it having taken place during a post-show exclusive clip, many did not know about it until When Nature Calls the next month. Lasted 'til Nazmaldun's banishment at the end of Season 16.

  • Catchphrase:
  • Finishing Move: Flea Flicker, Spinebuster
  • Game-Breaking Injury: The month after finally ending Juan Francisco de Coronado's Grand Championship reign, he fractured his fibula taking a suplex outside the ring during King of Trios 2018.
  • Jerk Jock: Though he was listed as a Tecnico for the entirety of season 11 no matter what he did, including killing Sapphire. His status on the roster page was finally changed to Rudo in January of 2013. Toned down a ton after CHIKARA closed.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Okay, true, Saturyne isn't a giant or anything, but, being able to hold a fully-grown human being in the air on one hand has to count for something.
  • Parts Unknown: "Touchdown City"
  • Power Stable:
  • Red Baron: Mr. Touchdown. Dropped after being Brainwashed by Nazmaldun, picked back up after Nazmaldun's banishment.
  • Schoolyard Bully All Grown Up: Bullied Archibald Peck in high school, although Marchie Archie appears to have been somehow oblivious to it.
  • Tag Team:
    • (as Mark Angel in Beyond Wrestling): The Academy of Anatomy with Nick Talent, and their valet Aurora D'Amore
    • The Throwbacks, with Dasher Hatfield and Sugar Dunkerton
  • Token Evil Teammate: Of the Throwbacks with Dasher Hatfield and Sugar Dunkerton. At least, at first.
    • Stepped back in this direction in late 2015 by supplying an unknowing Dasher with a loaded elbow pad, which led to Dasher surrendering the points Dasher's Dugout had accumulated in the Challenge of the Immortals tournament.note  Immediately regretted it once Dasher started shunning him, leaving him a prime target for Nazmaldun.
  • Tournament Arc: Along with winning the 2012 Young Lions Cup Tournament, he and Dasher won the 2014 (held by Wrestling Is Fun!) and 2018 Tag World Grand Prix.
  • Unrelated Brothers: He was introduced as Dasher Hatfield's step-cousin-in-law. But then, nothing is really known about Dasher's life outside of wrestling, so who knows?
  • Wrestling Doesn't Pay: A wrestling American Football player.
  • You Monster!: Invoked against him by the fans after he killed Sapphire.

How well does it match the trope?
