Tropes related to Liam McIntyre's roles:
- Ascended Fanboy:
- He was a fan of the Spartacus show before he even signed on. He also seems to be quite a history geek (or at least about Greco-Roman history) if you ask him. He's stated at Comic-Con that he had to "reign his inner geek in" while filming for the show.
- He's a self-proclaimed geek, which explains some of his choice filmography.
- I Am Not Spock: Averted. He wholeheartedly embraces being recognized as Spartacus. His Twitch is called MrSpartyPants, for starters.
- Man of a Thousand Voices: If you've seen his livestreams, he can certainly pull this off, though so far the only standout one in official voiceover is the goofy creature-like Snarl.
- The Other Darrin: He succeeded the late Andy Whitfield as Spartacus when the latter's cancer went into remission. He's acknowledged that he's a Tough Act to Follow, though Whitfield gave him his approval before his passing.
- Relationship Voice Actor: With John DiMaggio, as Marcus and J.D. and King Shark and Captain Boomerang.
- Star-Making Role: Spartacus.
- Unfortunate Names: His Twitch name is MrSpartyPants, not MrsPartyPants. Capitalization.
