!Tropes associated with Seth Rogen:

* AnnoyingLaugh: Lampshaded by his appearance on Jonathan Ross; "You've got an even weirder laugh than mine!"
* AntiHero: Tends to play these a lot in his movies.
%%* CanadaEh
* TheComicallySerious: In his ''Freaks and Geeks'' audition tape. He talks to the camera completely stone-faced while crew members are laughing offscreen.
* FakeAmerican: [[Film/PineappleExpress Dale]], [[Film/TheGreenHornet Britt]], [[Film/ObserveandReport Ronnie]], [[Series/FreaksandGeeks Ken]], [[TakeThisWaltz Lou]] and [[Film/TheGuiltTrip Andy]], just to name a few of his characters.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: He tends to play characters who have this dynamic, Creator/JamesFranco being the most common partner ("coincidentally" true in real life).
%%* JewishAndNerdy
* OneOfUs: Will soon be directing a movie about the Console Wars between Sega and Nintendo.
* PlayingAgainstType: As disturbed, sociopatic Ronnie in ''Film/ObserveAndReport'', awkward, sweet Ira in ''Film/FunnyPeople'' and smart, straight-laced Andy in ''Film/TheGuiltTrip''.
%%* QuirkyCurls
* RedOniBlueOni: When playing opposite James Franco he tends to be the comparatively laid back and rational blue oni.
* TheStoner: Is one himself, and it shows in the roles he plays.
* ThoseTwoActors: With Creator/JamesFranco. They're frequently paired together on-screen.
* TypeCasting: He is most cast as a laid back, foul mouthed stoner. This was even referenced in Film/ThisIsTheEnd which he co-wrote and co-directed; "You play the same character in every movie."
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Is ''31'', but looks much older. Look at him in ''Series/FreaksAndGeeks'' as carefully as you possibly can. He was only ''17'', but managed to look far, ''far'' older than all the actors on the show who weren't really teenagers.
