His unique style of throwing darts--holding the pointing tip of the dart with his thumb and index finger and then throwing it with the opposite end pointing to the board so that the dart makes a 180-degree turn in mid air with the pointed end to the stuck board--can be seen in many of his movies such as King Ralph (1991).
