So you’re already unaware of certain movie tropes, so that disqualifies you from being the mentor or confidant, but you’re friendly enough. You’re not very proactive and while I could imagine that you would hold a grudge against the world, I don’t think it’s what anyone would expect of you.

If you’re in an action movie, you’re the person who stays behind. You could be more present in a comedy or drama, and the sort of person that I take you for makes me think you’d be the comedy relief in a dramatic (crime?) movie, the cutie who needs to be broken by the plot. A witness who didn’t realise how vulnerable they were, but you manage to bounce back. If you’re a horror character, you’re quickly murdered off-screen after having decent screentime beforehand. You aren’t an evil killer, although people might think you’re hiding something anyway.

As for a specific archetype… I’m thinking a support role. Colleague, or a not-the-closest friend to the protagonist.

i think you could be an interesting antagonist
but you don’t really have anything to prove or anything you really want to stand-by
you’d be a good antagonist to a villain protagonist team, i think

I like this idea a lot. I couldn’t fill a protagonist role, because I’m not reactionary enough. I don’t really see myself as a villain either, although I can certainly think up plots that might come from one. Thanks, this perfectly suits me.
