Tropes applying to Zack Sabre Jr.:

  • Awesome Mc Cool Name: Few things sound cooler than having "Sabre" as your ring name surname.
  • Boring, but Practical: His technician style features few, if any flashy maneuvers whatsoever, but his offense largely exists as being locked in a submission hold for extended periods of time, and by goodness is it effective.
  • Crowd Song: Crowds tend to chant "Ohhh Zack Sabre Juuunior!"
    • His entrance music in Progress Wrestling a song called Mother by the band Idle has become this as well.
  • Hero Killer: Shaping up to be this in New Japan Pro Wrestling, scoring upset wins in the 2018 New Japan Cup over Tetsuya Naito, Kota Ibushi, SANADA, and even company ace Hiroshi Tanahashi to win the tournament.
  • Power Stable: Became a member of Suzukigun in New Japan Pro Wrestling.
  • Too Many Belts: Wore mutliple titles he won in other promotions to the ring in NJPW.
  • Torture Technician: His ring style of pretty much just putting people in heinous looking submission holds for 20 minutes until one breaks them looks like this already, but in New Japan it's explicit when as a member of Suzuki-Gun he's implied to be enjoying hurting people.
  • Tournament Arc:
  • Uninstallment: There's no Zack Sabre Sr, it just sounds cooler.
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Wears a jacket with the Union Jack on it to the ring.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Weights 85kg/180lbs and rarely uses any suplexes, but try naming half the submission maneuvers he uses.
