!!He provides examples of:
* TheBigEasy: He is a very, very, very, vocally proud native of New Orleans.
* CatchPhrase: Going by the extra features of the ''Winter Soldier'' Blu-Ray, he's fond of saying "Cut the check!" (In the sense of "Good job, guys; we earned our pay today.")
* {{Keet}}: Just watch him playing superhero charades.
* PromotedFanboy: He's such a big fan of ComicBook/TheFalcon that he was actually ''disappointed'' when he found out the filmmakers weren't going to have him wear the red spandex costume the character wears in the comics.
* SitcomArchNemesis: Plays up a rivalry with Creator/TomHolland, due to the younger actor stealing his CatchPhrase on set of Civil War. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MTMjHZYpfE Consider this montage of him (and Sebastian Stan) roasting Holland.]]
* SoMyKidsCanWatch: He claims he pursued the role of ComicBook/TheFalcon in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse so that his son and other African-American children can see that there are superheroes who look like them. Mackie was pretty excited to see there'd be kids dressing up like him on Halloween.
* ThoseTwoActors: He's starred alongside Creator/ChrisEvans in ''What's Your Number?'', ''A Many Splintered Thing'', ''Film/PlayingItCool'', and in multiple Marvel films.
* TokenMinority: Mackie himself has joked that he often ends up playing the lone African American character in many of his films.
