- Award Snub: Discussed. During the Team F.I.S.T. (Icarus/Gran Akuma/Chuck Taylor)-Death Match Kings (Necro Butcher/Brain Damage/"Mr. Insanity" Toby Klein) match at CHIKARA King of Trios 2009 Night I, commentators Bryce Remsburg and Eddie Kingston said that Necro was snubbed for a Best Supporting Actor nomination for The Wrestler.
- Base-Breaking Character: Either you think he's an amazing brawler with an incredible capacity for pain, or that he is a disgrace to the business.
- Ensemble Dark Horse: He got over in Ring of Honor despite being an ultraviolent death match wrestler in a promotion known for scientific wrestlers and high flyers.
- Squick: His injuries as presented in Card Subject to Change.
YMMV / Necro Butcher
