* BadassDecay: The last quarter of his life.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Regretted that a couple of his bad boy roles got this treatment.
* HoYay: With Creator/LaurenceOlivier and many others. The HoYay was ''real'' -- Marlon Brando admitted having homosexual affairs and said he was "not ashamed". In response to reports that he and Creator/JackNicholson were lovers, he reportedly said "may they continue to do so. I find it amusing."
* OneSceneWonder: In ''Apocalypse Now'' and ''Superman''.
* TheWoobie / JerkassWoobie: He was undoubtedly a very difficult person but his last few years were not at all happy. His son murdered his daughter's husband, said daughter later committed suicide, and his son was getting in more and more trouble before dying in 2005.
