* UsefulNotes/AcademyAward: Won for ''Film/OnTheWaterfront'' and ''Film/TheGodfather'', was nominated for ''Film/AStreetcarNamedDesire'', ''Viva Zapata!'', ''Theatre/JuliusCaesar'', ''Film/{{Sayonara}}'', ''Film/LastTangoInParis'' and ''A Dry White Season'' (as a supporting actor). Funnily enough he went up against Creator/HumphreyBogart for the Academy Award twice, losing the first time (Bogart won for ''Film/TheAfricanQueen'' vs. Brando's ''Film/AStreetcarNamedDesire'') and winning the second time (Brando won for ''Film/OnTheWaterfront'' vs. Bogart's ''Film/TheCaineMutiny''). He rejected his second Oscar to protest Hollywood's depiction of the Native Americans.

He's the only actor to receive four consecutive Best Actor nominations. He rejected his second Oscar to protest Hollywood's depiction of the Native Americans.

Impressions of him, in the form of a MumblingBrando, are a StockParody.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Unarguably one of the most recognizable voices in film history. You'd know it even if you have never seen his work.

Marlon Brando (1924-2004) was a legendary American method actor who broke out in the early [[TheFifties 1950s]], appearing in two Elia Kazan films, ''Theatre/AStreetcarNamedDesire'' and ''Film/OnTheWaterfront'', as well as less arty projects such as ''Film/TheWildOne'' and the screen adaptation of ''Theatre/GuysAndDolls''. He later created and forever owned the role of Don Vito Corleone in ''Film/TheGodfather'', as well as performed notable cameo roles in several high-profile films, including Jor-El in ''Film/{{Superman}}'' and Kurtz in ''Film/ApocalypseNow''.

* OneOfUs: A big fan of ''Series/BeavisAndButthead''. Creator/JohnnyDepp once told Creator/MikeJudge that while filming ''Film/DonJuanDeMarco'', Brando would talk to him incessantly about the show and quote his favorite lines.

* DracoInLeatherPants: [[invoked]] Regretted that a couple of his bad boy roles got this treatment.
** Stanley in AStreetCarNamedDesire especially -- Brando loathed the character as an abusive rapist, and was horrified that some audiences romanticized him.

* VocalDissonance: He's one of the {{Trope Codifier}}s for TheHunk, and yet his voice is... ''jarring,'' to say the least. Especially with his thick accent.

* InsufferableGenius: One of the greatest actors to have ever walked the Earth. Also one of the most [[ItsAllAboutMe narcissistic]] actors to have ever walked the Earth.
