!!Tropes applying to this actor:
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: In Manga/DeathNote and ZeniGeba.
* LikesOlderWomen: Wife Koyuki is eight years older than him.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Has played a [[Manga/DeathNote fair few]] [[SexyVoiceAndRobo oddballs]], and [[ZeniGeba one or two nutcases]], but comes off in interviews as a perfectly nice, rather serious young man, even a little shy.
* OneOfUs: Admits a fondness for 90's manga.
* UglyCute: Several of his characters due to AdaptationalAttractiveness, [[Manga/DeathNote L]] and [[ZeniGeba Futaro]] particularly - both are intended to be ugly/horribly disfigured, but even the makeup department's best efforts cannot disguise that Matsuyama is actually quite handsome.
* UnkemptBeauty: Some of his roles (most notably [[Manga/DeathNote L]]), and sometimes also the man himself.
