YMMV: Zachary Quinto
- Actor Shipping/Launcher of a Thousand Ships: Has an uncanny ability to create disturbingly natural chemistry with anyone he so much as stands next to, whether it's in character or not. Examples have included Matt Bomer, Jonathan Groff (although that's canon), Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Kristen Bell, everyone who's worked with him on Heroes and Star Trek, Zachary Levi, and the list goes on. You name it, there'll be a fandom that ships it.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Sylar was written more and more heavily into the show as fans cried out for him.
- Retroactive Recognition: Played Tori Spelling's Gay Best Friend Sasan in her series So NoTORIous prior to landing his Star-Making Role as Sylar. It makes watching both shows an especially hilarious experience.
