    "Hold on, sugar! Daddy's got a sweet tooth tonight!"

    Type: Mischievous Superhero

    Portrayed by: Jim Carrey
    Rob Paulsen (Animated Series)

    Stanley Ipkiss is the main protagonist of Dark Horse’s The Mask franchise. He was portrayed by Jim Carrey in the seminal 1994 movie and voiced by Rob Paulsen in the animated series.

    Why He's Smokin

    1. Stanley is a very likable, shy, mild-mannered guy who would be willing to help Tina Carlyle.
    2. Jim Carrey did an amazing job portraying Stanley (as well as The Mask) and got nominated a Golden Globe award for his performance.
      • Rob Paulsen does a great Jim Carrey impression in the animated series.
    3. His makeup as The Mask is so funny, expressive and lifelike yet cartoonish.
    4. His masked alter-ego is considered a live action equivalent of several Looney Tunes characters. It helps that Stanley likes watching Tex Avery cartoons during his spare time, which makes sense for why The Mask embodies the "mischievous trickster" archetype whose flamboyant and larger-than-life mannerisms make him remain entirely charismatic in and outside of his mischief.
    5. What makes his masked alter-ego to be extremely funny is his highly sarcastic sense of humor that irritates and annoys most of his enemies that deserved it, he has no shame, can make a joke out of any situation, and even after facing fearsome villains, he is still able to belittle and insult baddies while coming prepared with a plan of action to humiliate and defeat the villains without fail when they least expect it, thus making him badass for a eccentric jokester like him.
    6. A lot of his quotes in the movie are memorable, awesome and hilarious:
      • “SsssssMOKIN'!”
      • “It's party time! P-A-R-T-Why? Because I gotta!”
      • “Look ma! I'm roadkill! Ha ha! Hah!!”
      • “THAT'S a! Spicy meataball!!!”
      • “Somebody stop me!”
      • “Hold on to your lugnuts, it's tiiiiime for an overhaul!”
      • “Geez, I figured you had a sense of humor, after all... YOU MARRIED HER!”
      • “That's gotta hurt. Aheieieiei!!”
      • “Puttin' on the ritz!”
      • “Our love is like a red, red rose... and I am a little thorny.”
      • “She is so coy.”
      • “Now you have to ask yourself one question. "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya? Punks!”
      • “You've got 17.5% in T-bills amortized over the fiscal year, 8% in stocks and bonds. Carry the 9, divide by the Gross National Product... fortunately, funeral bouquets are deductible.”
      • “Je t'adore. Je t'window. I don't care!”
      • “You were good, kid, real good. But as long as I'm around, you'll always be second best, see?”
      • “Did you miss me? I GUESS NOT!”
      • “LOOK AT THAT! It's exactly two seconds before I honk your nose and pull your underwear over your head!”
      • “Boy, you really narrowed it down.”
      • “Can't make the scene if you don't have the green.”
      • “hecking, savings and checking, CDs, savings and CDs, checking and CDs, savings, checking, and CDs, T-bills, or we can just take all your money and throw it in a big mattress back there.”
      • “You betcha. Thank you. And good luck... cracking the case.”
      • “Well, I hope you can enjoy the victory with one freakin' eye!”
      • “It wasn't me, it was The One-Armed Man!”
      • “C'mon, MAN! SERVE AND PROTECT!”
      • “Hold me closer, Ed... It's getting dark... Tell Auntie Em to let Old Yeller out...Tell Tiny Tim I won't be coming home this Christmas... Tell Scarlett I do give a damn!”
    7. He has a healthy and endearing relationship with Tina.
    8. The film version is an example that, not being somewhat faithful, can be a good thing as long as it's entertaining and enjoyable enough.
    9. He only becomes his mask self during the night. Which creates plenty of fun, zany cartoony "Tex Avery"/"Looney Tunes" kind of antics that contribute to the funniest moments of the film, especially the ways he pulls pranks on thugs and villains he doesn't like with a "balloon tommy gun" gag, his airhorn gag, and many more to list.

    Bad Qualities

    1. The comic book version is rather dark and violent. In the movie, Dorian Tyrell is the closest to that counterpart.
    2. The film version isn't exactly faithful to the comics.
    3. His quote “Who needs a camcorder when you need one?” didn't age well due to police brutality in the 2010s.

    Trivia

    • Jim Carrey turned down The Mask 2 in 1997. As he was replaced by a far worse version of the character.
    • He, coincidentally, shares a lot of similarities between Deadpool. Both of them are extremely comedic superhero vigilantes played by Canadian comedic actors who would do anything to protect the woman they love. They also talk in pop culture references and break the fourth wall so often.
