* BaldOfAwesome: During his "Hollywood" run and from 2011 onwards. Johnson's hairline had been receding for years, but rather than try to fight it or hide it, he shaved his head and looks far more badass.

As an actor, he is not particularly known for his skill at the craft, but this doesn't seem to bother him. He doesn't take himself seriously, committing without self-consciousness to roles that most actors would turn down. He always seems to be enjoying himself, which may account partially for his success. He also has an industry nickname of "Franchise Viagra", as both ''TheFastAndTheFurious'' and ''Journey'' franchises both saw improved box office tallies with the films Johnson entered in, and the ''G.I. Joe'' sequel was built squarely around him despite him not being in the first film. He has proven to be a true legitimate box office draw, as coming into 2014, 11 of his 15 wide-release films where he had a headlining billing opened at number one, including eight of his first nine. And in July of 2016, he was named the highest paid actor in America.

* ProductPlacement: Advertising/GotMilk In the commercial where he stars, he delays handling any problems around him, including a cat up a tree, bank robbers, and an AlienInvasion so he can get milk for his kids. (The phrase he uses after he does, [[PreAsskickingOneLiner "Gotta go to work"]] would [[CallBack appear later]] in the movie ''[[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Furious 7]]''.)

* GentleGiant: Off-stage.Off-stage, he's said to be one of the nicest and most approachable men in the business.



* InnocentInnuendo: His often-used tactic to bait subjects into the "You sick ffffffffffffreak" routine or even just to get a misguided reaction for his own amusement. Works every time, too.
* JerkJock: Even as a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold face,]] Johnson was the cool slick athlete that made fun of everybody, his interactions with [[ButtMonkey Coach]] were especially telling; the crowd still went nuts over him.

Dwayne's [[AmbiguouslyBrown ambiguous biracial features]] allow him to shift gimmicks at will without sacrificing his [[EvenTheGuysWantHim universal sex appeal]]: He first entered the [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} WWF]] as "Rocky Maivia", a LegacyCharacter (and something of a CreatorsPet) to both the Maivia family and his father, complete with outfits swiped from a repertory player in ''The Lion King''. He later capitalized on his "family connections" (Rocky was a perpetual {{face}} who drove the audience insane with how much he was pushed) by turning heel, restyling himself as an [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections affluenza]]-riddled, ''Jersey Shore'' type villain; this evolution into "The Rock" freed him creatively and allowed him to show off his incredible skills with the microphone.

Better known as The Rock, '''Dwayne Johnson''' (born May 2, 1972) is a hugely personable [[ProfessionalWrestling professional wrestler]]-turned-actor. He was born into the Maivia WrestlingFamily on his mother's side, which has close ties to the Anoa'i family (its members known for playing up the WildSamoan stereotype). His father, also a pro wrestler, is black Canadian and former WWF Tag Team Champion Rocky Johnson.
