Personality Traits

The new personality system (also featured in MyCareer) gauges a variety of stats to influence Superstar traits and actions in Universe mode, and affects how the AI will use characters during gameplay. Stories will unfold according to the Superstars personality traits, with specific cutscenes only happening if it makes sense for those involved. By default, these sliders are tuned to align with Superstars’ traits shown on WWE programming. They can be adjusted manually, or gradually developed through gameplay.

  • Prideful - Egotistical
    Prideful is a superstar who plays fair, but has no problem showing that they are confident in themselves: this one would be a champion coming out and watching the challenger from the stage. Egotistical is a superstar who won't play fair, and will taunt more: this one would get you a cutscene where the champion attacks the challenger from behind with the belt.
     
  • Respectful - Disrespectful
    Respectful is pretty self-explanatory. He'll be the one who offers hand shakes before/after the match. Disrespectful is the opposite, they'll slap the person's hand away, or attack them.
     
  • Perseverant - Desperate
    The desperate trait is more likely to use weapons when on the verge of losing, willing to get DQ'd if it means saving themselves.
     
  • Loyal - Treacherous
    Loyal people are less likely to betray allies. Treacherous people are more likely to turn on their partners and betray/trick people.
     
  • Bold - Cowardly
    Bold people have no problem bringing the fight to you, even saving people from attacks. Cowards will run away, possibly even getting themselves counted out intentionally during matches.
     
  • Disciplined - Aggressive
    Disciplined people will prefer fighting in the ring, may also make them less likely to use weapons in No DQ matches. Aggressive people will attack their rival before/after matches and will fight more viciously.

Status Effects

The new Status Effects in WWE Universe Mode (introduced in WWE 2K16) are temporary bonuses and penalties that are triggered through gameplay or storylines. The most common effects temporarily boost a Superstar’s attributes, some others affect how much a personality trait can be changed through gameplay, giving you the chance to solidify a trait or push it towards the opposite end.
