* InTheBlood: Chris's mother, father, sister and grandmother are all actors.
* MilkingTheGiantCow: The actor has this trait ''in real life'' (possibly as a result of growing up in a houseful of actors). Usually comes into play when telling a story during an interview. Especially noticeable with the bear paws (see FanNickname).
* NonIndicativeName: Despite his last name, he's very capable at showing emotion in performances and can even be quite hammy when he needs to be (He is replacing William Shatner after all).



* OldShame: A few.



* PortmanteauCoupleName : Chris Pine + Zachary Quinto = Pinto. Karl Urban + Chris Pine = Urbine.
* PurpleProse: "[[{{Narm}} Azure pools of ethereal beauty]]"?
* SelfDeprecation: When announced as Captain Kirk at [=WonderCon=], Chris claims he heard "a few really pointed, dagger-in-the-heart boos". (ZacharyQuinto claims this was his inner voice.)
