As governor of California, was a real-life case of AsskickingEqualsAuthority. He's also the biggest [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy JFK]] fan known to man, being the man who paid thousands for a set of golf clubs used by JFK as well as marrying into the family... and yet, somewhat oddly, he's a Republican. A rather liberal Republican (especially in an era where GlennBeck and [[TheOReillyFactor Bill O'Reilly]] are major opinion leaders and Creator/DonaldTrump was elected President on a GOP ticket), but a Republican nonetheless. Also, he credits his loyalty to the Republican Party to a speech by an American President while he was still in Austria. The president? UsefulNotes/RichardNixon. Chew on that for a while.

Went on record saying that when he was up for reelection in 2010, he would not seek another term, nor will he run for a House or Senate seat. Most likely because [[UnpleasableFanbase the harsh realities of politics]] have been less than kind to him due to him being too far to the left of his own party and too far to the right for the Democrats. The sex scandal didn't help either. He has since returned to films (he also later admitted that he originally threw his hat in the ring as a throw-away joke during an interview, and was astonished that so many people took him seriously). [[Film/DemolitionMan Unless the Constitution is amended]] [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie to allow foreign-born citizens to run for President...]] Ironically, he now hosts ''Series/TheApprentice'' -- [[UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump one of his predecessors]] happened to have become president.

* HandsomeLech: In RealLife, he's known to be a bit...touchy with the ladies, and has boundary issues. Supposedly, his father thought he might be gay so he often tried to encourage little Arnie to chase skirts as much as he could, so this is likely a result of that up bringing.

* MrFanservice: Back in his heyday he was quite shameless about showing off his physique.
** And to be fair, he still looks pretty goddamned good at almost 70.

* AdamWesting: He seems to honestly love hamming it up as a {{Flanderized}} version of himself almost as much as he loves subverting the trope. Examples include BoisterousBruiser Jack-Slater!Arnold's confrontation of Ditzy-Movie-Star!Arnold in Last Action Hero, and his appearance in ''Film/TheExpendables'' as a RetiredBadass with HiddenDepths gone into politics.

* BondOneLiner: Arnold has always been great at these (especially in ''Film/{{Commando}}''). Say what you will about his acting, it's impossible to deny that he has a good sense of comedic timing.

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Arnold once had a friendly contest with fitness guru, Jack Lalanne. The goal was to see who could do the most chin-ups and push-ups. Arnold was 21 at the time, and Jack was 54. And Arnold was ''very'' handily beaten. Arnold was quoted as saying "That Jack LaLanne's an animal! I was sore for four days. I couldn't lift my arms!"
