* {{Deuteragonist}}: He usually plays this to Bernardo’s {{Protagonist}}s, but also had this role in a non-romance context in the Vice Ganda starrer ''Gandarrapiddo: The Revenger Squad'' (2017). Not that this has clashed with or diminished his image as a ''leading'' man at all.
* FakeNationality: Padilla’s character in ''Princess and I'' is a lost prince of a kingdom called Yangdon, which is based on the real-life South Asian nation Bhutan. A bit [[JustifiedTrope justified]], as Sharchops (the ethnic majority in Bhutan) often have Southeast Asian ancestry.

* ChickMagnet: Most of his characters. Even Joaquin, who has NoSocialSkills, attracts girls like bees to honey. Dos in ''Can’t Help Falling in Love'' has also had literally more than a hundred ex-girlfriends in his young life, all of happily run to maul him when they’re brought together. Certainly an ActorInspiredElement, teen (and beyond) heartthrob and all.

His brand is still masculine.
