!!Tropes applying to Pedro Pascal and his roles include:
* AntiHero: Javier Peña and the Mandalorian, among others, often commit immoral acts for noble purposes.
* BadassMustache: Grew one for ''Game of Thrones'', and now rarely appears in his performances or in public without it.
* ChronicallyKilledActor: He usually dies in his TV roles such as ''Game of Thrones'' and the ''Law & Order'' franchise. He's not even safe in some of his movie roles such as ''Kingsman: The Golden Circle'' and ''The Equalizer 2''.
* FaceOfAThug: This real-life humble jokester and self-proclaimed dork has attributed his "dangerous"-looking appearance to his tendency to play villains and anti-heroes.
