Tropes appearing in his works:
- Creator's Oddball: Surprisingly, he's done some Danish dub work for children's cartoons like Monsters vs. Aliens, and even Naruto. Presumably, it was So My Kids Can Watch.
- Ink-Suit Actor: Grand Admiral Thrawn's physical appearance in Rebels is based off of Mikkelsen's, hence why his physical features seem to be different from Star Wars Legends works.
- Omniglot: Like his brother. He not only knows Danish, but also Swedish, German, and English, as well as having mastered many different accents. In House of Cards, he plays as a Russian politician that at one point sings the Russian folk song, Korobushka, though it's not known if he's actually fluent in the language or not.
- Villainous Cheekbones Like his brother, his sharp features help when he's cast in villainous roles (and help exaggerate the resemblance Viktor Petrov has to Vladimir Putin.)
