* TheHeavy: Before ''Airplane!'', thanks to his rugged body and deep, masculine voice, he was always typecast as this.

* TomHanksSyndrome: Inverted. He'd always been frustrated by being TheHeavy in films, and delighted in finally being able to show off his comedic chops.

* {{Troll}}: On set, Nielsen was reportedly a major practical joker -- and unlike many of this trope, everyone enjoyed it.

* ''The Canadian Conspiracy'', a 1985 HBO {{Mockumentary}} which riffs on the fact that his older brother Erik was Deputy Prime Minister to [[CanadianPolitics Brian Mulroney]], and included a whole bunch of Canadians in Hollywood (including both LorneGreene and Creator/LorneMichaels, to say nothing of Creator/WilliamShatner and Creator/MichaelJFox) trying to subvert the US government. Yes.

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Especially towards the end of his career, he started featuring in worse and worse movies... and was consistently a highlight in them. Even before then, he gave a perfect delivery to every bit of RapidFireComedy he was handed.
-->'''Creator/{{Seanbaby}}:''' Some of the jokes he saves in ''Film/TheNakedGun'' movies should be verified by the Catholic church as miracles. For example, he once looked up a woman's dress, told her she had a nice beaver and he was talking about a taxidermy prop. If he can make that hilarious, surely you have to consider him for comedic sainthood.

** It can be very jarring for those who've only seen his comedic roles to come across his earlier, dramatic performances. He was a highly skilled dramatic actor, and when playing psychopaths or other hardened characters, he brought a chilling intensity to the role.
