Tropes associated with Pepe Argento

  • The Ace: Prior to his marriage.
  • Alpha Couple: With Moni.
  • Butt-Monkey
  • Can't Live With Them, Can't Live Without Them: With his family, and perhaps with Maria Elena too, if the series finale is anything to go by.
  • The Chew Toy
  • Chick Magnet: Turns into one in an episode, much to Moni's dismay.
  • Deus Angst Machina: He lost his chances to be a football player, he has a wife that is always asking for sex, two mistakes of nature as sons, a dog that just stays there, a pathetic job, ugly and always complaining customers, a neighbour that hates him and always try to humilliate him, perpetual poverty... and that's just the Status Quo, each new episode provides yet another way of being turned down.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: He played football with Death himself!
  • I Coulda Been a Contender!: He could have been a player of "Club Atlético Racing Club", but it could not be.
  • Jaded Washout: Argentine version of the former trope namer.
  • Smite Me, O Mighty Smiter!: Pepe always complains to the "Beard" (God) about his pathetic life and the way all the universe turns against him.
  • Tranquil Fury: when he wants to kill his wife. Some time he even wanted to do it and was constantly interrupted by other anti-climate things when he took the knife and marched towards her.
