* BadassDriver: Frequently behind the wheel in his movies; the ''Transporter'' series is built around this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* PintsizedPowerhouse: While not overly short, Statham is about average at [[http://www.celebheights.com/s/Jason-Statham-365.html 5'9]], yet frequently takes on much larger opponents (such as Creator/TheRock or Creator/VinDiesel) with ease.

* MemeticMutation: In Russia, of all places. On various Russian social networks, he was a constant victim of misattributed "manly" quotes to such extent that eventually ''everything'' was credited to Jason Statham, from [[https://vk.com/jason_statham_bl childish rhymes]] to VideoGame/EarthBound [[https://pp.vk.me/c622326/v622326321/3207d/JwkpqCPSBuU.jpg quotes]].
* OldShame: Before getting his acting break, Jason performed as a backup dancer to some 90s-tastic [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWu3JqLMImY music]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvhgG9ee9Aw videos]].



* PlayingAgainstType: He'll occasionally step beyond his strong-and-silent-badass comfort zone. He played a purely dramatic role ''London'', ''Blitz'' was a psychological thriller that focused more on mind games than action, and he voiced the antagonist in ''Gnomeo and Juliet'', a children's cartoon. Not to mention the films where he plays a father figure (or an actual father) to young children.
** Not exactly evident, but his role as Deckard Shaw in ''[[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Furious 7]]'' - [[spoiler: the BigBadDuumvirate OneManArmy]] - counts.
** Can also count as HeReallyCanAct when he plays beleaguered conmen or thieves instead of action roles, such as ''Film/LockStockAndTwoSmokingBarrels'', ''Film/{{Snatch}}'', and ''Film/TheBankJob''.
** PlayingWithCharacterType: In a subversion of his usual roles as steely-eyed, razor-sharp badasses, in ''Film/{{Spy}}'', he plays Rick Ford, a steely-eyed, razor-sharp CloudCuckoolander suffering from SmallNameBigEgo. When he's not recounting ludicrous, probably-made-up tales of his previous exploits ("I drove a car off a freeway on top of a train while it was on fire. Not the car; ''I'' was on fire."), his action-hero attitude is constantly screwing up attempts to be a stealthy spy.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/GuyRitchie wrote the part of Handsome Bob in Film/Rocknrolla for Statham, as an ActorAllusion filled role. Scheduling conflicts meant he couldn't do it, so Creator/TomHardy took the part.

* {{Badass}}: The one thing linking every one of his characters. They can always kick ass.
