Dennis Reynolds is a main character in the TV series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. He is the co-owner of Paddy's Pub, and Dee Reynolds fraternal twin brother. Dennis is best friends with Charlie Kelly and Mac.


Dennis is extremely vain, selfish, superficial, hypersexual, and delusional about himself. Dennis also has an extreme temper (most notable in later seasons) and will blow up in rage whenever his image is called into question, he doesn't get what he wants, or just plain gets irritated. Dennis routinely destroys others' property and casually mentions committing disturbing acts of sexual and physical violence.

One of Dennis's most predominant traits is that he is extremely self-centered and has an incredibly grandiose, deluded and distorted view of himself that causes him to believe himself to be physically perfect and irresistible to others. He often claims to be a God and believes he should be the leader in all cases of decision making. Dennis's romantic relationships are shallow and brief, and his closest friendships are both codependent and homoerotic (though he believes them to be incredibly cool and masculine).

Dennis went to high school with Mac and Charlie. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and opened Paddy's Pub shortly after.
