He also did the episode "Distant Sun" and is slated for another in Season 3. He seems to be making a RunningGag in his episodes of having Kara strip down to her Supergirl outfit offscreen while her clothes are thrown at the person watching.

* VitriolicBestBuds: Although HappilyMarried, he and Jennifer Schwalbach crack a lot of cruel jokes at each other's expense. Apparently it runs in the family, as Smith has shared several stories of his daughter Harley being equally sassy.

* OddFriendship: Considered himself this with AlanRickman, considering one is a British acting legend and the other is a stoner indie filmmaker from Jersey, yet Rickman often kept in touch with Kevin and his family after filming ''Dogma''. Talking about Alan after his passing is guaranteed to break him down into ManlyTears.

** On his ''Fatman on Batman'' podcast, he admitted to nerdgasming when guest Creator/ArleenSorkin rang his home intercom and announced herself in her Harley Quinn voice, and when Kevin Conroy opened up their podcast interview in the Batman voice, Smith instantly declared, "Coming all over!"

* AmbiguouslyBi: By all accounts, he's straight, but makes enough passive comments about gay sex, man crushes and "getting wet" while working on ''Series/TheFlash2014'' that it'd make one wonder if he's at least heteroflexable. He's mentioned several times that he has several gay friends, including his own brother, who is, in his words, "...as gay as the day is long," so [[NWordPrivileges certain attitudes may have rubbed off on him]] as a result. It helps that [[Film/ChasingAmy one of his most popular films]] is about how sexuality and relationships isn't just a binary division.

* TooMuchInformation. Averted. Smith is not above going onto long diatribes about going to the bathroom or having sex with his wife on his podcasts. One segment of "Jay and Silent Bob Get Old" is entirely dedicated to Jason Mewes telling detailed anecdotes about him and his wife having sex.

* ThePowerOfLove: Kevin has said that he wasn't sure how much longer he was going to be a filmmaker for a variety of reasons (including critics and fans turning on him and personal burn out) but he cites working on ''Tusk'' as being his renaissance there. The reason was that he ended up inviting his daughter Harley Quinn Smith to play a small role as a Canadian convenience store clerk. Working with his daughter, seeing her talent as an actress and having fun together, made him feel like he could keep doing this. In a video promoting ''Yoga Hosiers'', both of them were supposed to do this short interview where she asked him various questions. They didn't get past the first question "Who was your favorite actor to work with?" because he immediately said it was her, and explained the above. By the end, both of them were in tears hugging each other.
