Tropes associated with him:²* {{Adorkable}}: Clear to see during any interview with him. ²** It has reached almost memetic levels with his fans. See FandomNickname.²* BadassBeard: Has one except when he's playing Matt, which is when he'll shave it²* CarpetOfVirility: He's become ''so'' associated with his hairy chest that fans were disappointed to learn he'd shaved it off for ''Daredevil'' (this is mostly so that the makeup for Matt's many chest injuries is easier to apply). ²%%* ConvertedFanboy: ²* FandomNickname: And for some reason, most of them got to do with pastries. The most prominent example being, "Precious Cinnamon Roll".²** A twitter fan account made a rather creative one, "[[Series/CharliesAngels Charlie's]] [[JustForPun Devils]]"²* LimeyGoesToHollywood: He temporarily settled down in the United States during the filming of ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire''. After being cast in ''Daredevil'', he has settled down in New York City for the time being, though this may be coupled with the fact that [[RomanceOnTheSet he became a father with his girlfriend]] Samantha Thomas, a producer on ''Series/AgentsOfShield'' and the other Marvel Netflix shows.²* MrFanservice: In keeping with the tradition of Marvel's leading men [[ShirtlessScene taking off their shirts]] within their universe, Matt Murdock's body is on display in many episodes of ''Daredevil''.
