Added DiffLines:

* NiceGuy: For someone with millions of dollars to his name, he's nothing short of kind-hearted and humble. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMB1EOnUwX8 He once relinquished his seat on a subway to a total stranger]], even though it meant he would have to stand up.

Added DiffLines:

* AdamWesting: He has so many well-known roles with MemeticMutation that almost any of his appearances or interviews are immediately filled with a bunch of jokes and references to the Matrix or Bill and Ted.

Added DiffLines:

* OneManArmy: His characters in action movies very often play directly with this, turning his into ShowyInvincibleHero with a phlegmatic poker face that methodically destroys hordes of enemies. In particular, in the second Matrix, Neo literally single-handedly kick the ass to hundreds of enemies in one fight.


Added DiffLines:

* ShowyInvincibleHero: Neo, John Wick and Constantine are TropeCodifier of this.

He gained minor [[MemeticMutation memetic status]] on Website/FourChan after they discovered [[TearJerker his history]] of being one of the biggest [[TheWoobie Woobies]] in Hollywood. [[http://i.imgur.com/2fonu.jpg Sniff.]] [[labelnote:explanation]]He has had a rough life with hardly knowing his dad, his daughter was stillborn and the mother died in a car accident a few years later. He also lives very conservatively and tends to donate most of his salary to charity. Various pictures show him looking sad and contemplative, contrasting the idea that he is [[TheStoic a stoic]].[[/labelnote]] Unsurprisingly, he is annoyed by the attention this has garnered him, though he's also [[http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1ouqge/keanu_reeves_ask_me_if_you_want_almost_anything/ccvu9dq stated]] that he found the meme itself funny.

* DullSurprise: A common criticism of his acting. He really manages to make it work for him in ''Film/ManOfTaiChi'', where it makes his character come off as even more sociopathic, and in ''Film/TheDayTheEarthStoodStill2008'', where it helps him come across as an alien emissary [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith wearing a human suit]].

Popularly believed to be dumb (most likely due to his [[Film/BillAndTed breakout role]] and shyness in interviews), he is actually ridiculously well-read and contemplative. He often talks about the philosophical meaning he sees in his characters, even the silly ones. He's also famous as an incredibly NiceGuy and purportedly one of the most normal, well-adjusted people in Hollywood. How far this is based on fact, only his friends can say, but one possible translation of his first name is "[[AwesomeMcCoolname The Coolness]]", so...

Added DiffLines:

* PrettyBoy: He could seldom be described as a {{Hunk}} (except perhaps in ''Speed'') but his looks have nonetheless been admired by many. His more Asian features could also place him under {{Biseinen}}.

Added DiffLines:

* HiddenDepths: Some of his performances, particularly as an abusive redneck in ''The Gift'' may show such for those who are only familiar with the style he's known for.


Added DiffLines:

* PlaysGreatEthnics: Reeves' mixed ancestry allows for this. He's mostly played Caucasians or characters of [[AmbiguouslyBrown uncertain ethnicity]] but has played a couple of Asians as well.
