* NinetiesAntiHero
* ActionGirl: She is a superb markswoman with various firearms, highly skilled athlete, excellent swimmer, and adept in use of explosives. She has extensive training in various armed combat techniques and the martial arts, with Olympic-gold level athletic and acrobatic ability.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's absolutely horrifying when threatened. You do NOT want to get on her bad side.
* BizarreAndImprobableBallistics: Domino has the power to alter probability, and prefers to use that ability in conjunction with firearms. She can thus perform outstandingly improbable trick-shots, including multiple-ricochet bulls-eyes against moving targets.
* BondOneLiner
* BornLucky: She has the ability to subliminally and psionically initiate random kinetic phenomena that affect probability in her favor by making improbable (but not impossible) things to occur within her line of sight, thus causing her to have "good luck" and her opponents to have "bad luck." For example, there was a time when somebody put a revolver to her head and pulled the trigger. Six times. All six bullets failed to fire. The odds of this actually happening are, needless to say, astronomically low.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Domino has probability altering powers, but she mainly relies on her marksmanship and hand-to-hand abilities.
* CloningBlues: A rare case of this being an AvertedTrope. She's surprisingly well-adjusted (by X-Men Standards, which isn't saying much)
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Bred as a weapon, failed as a bodyguard to her eventual husband and was then captured and tortured by Bastion's sentinels. She handles it better than somebody like ComicBook/IronMan or ComicBook/MsMarvel would.
* DeadpanSnarker: Has some overlap with SadClown and YouFightLikeACow.
* DodgeTheBullet
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: She has dark hair and literally white skin.
* FriendlySniper: Despite being designed as a NinetiesAntiHero, she's FunPersonified to her teammates after her original 90s GrimDark incarnation. This is a JustifiedTrope as the original Domino was an impostor.
* GunFu: Domino, though her "luck" power also had a lot to do with it.
%%* GunsAkimbo
* HairTriggerTemper: As stated above, do NOT get on her bad side. While she's normally a reasonable mother figure, deciding to annoy her is a very, very bad idea. Deadpool manages to get under her skin more than anyone else.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: She's able to hold her liquor better than anyone without a healing factor.
* HeroicAlbino
* ImprobableAimingSkills
* TheLancer: To Cable in the X-Force.
* LikesOlderMen: Has dated Wolverine and Cable.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Going by her backstory alone, she'd have to be at least 40. She doesn't look it. Even possibly aging backwards thanks to ComicBookTime and {{Retcon}}s.
* {{Omniglot}}: She seems to be fluent in multiple languages.
* PragmaticHero: Just because she's normally nice doesn't mean she won't shoot you in the face if you're a villain without any questions asked.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: Started out looking worn out and emaciated, eventually became a candidate for MsFanservice. It doesn't hurt that the original version with a man's hairline was really Copycat in disguise.
* ReallyGetsAround: Often combined with RomancingTheWidow. So far she's managed to conquer Cable, Wolverine and Colossus. And Deadpool but he doesn't really count as a, "conquest" since he'll openly try to score with anyone or anything.
* SpyCatsuit
* SuperheroPackingHeat
* SuperReflexes: As a byproduct of her probability abilities, Domino's cerebral cortex emits a current of bio-electric pulses down her spine to instinctively guide her movements during such situations, which has the added effect of augmenting her natural reflexes and agility to near-superhuman levels.
* {{Tykebomb}}: She was bred as a product of Weapon X. She later grew up to be a member of the X-Men.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Deadpool.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: She's terrified of chickens.
* WidowWoman
* WindsOfDestinyChange: Domino is often cited as well, but her powers are more BornLucky than this trope, since she doesn't directly control what happens.

to:

* YinYangBomb
YinYangBomb: He can either heal or kill with a touch, which changes his appearance to gold or black. In the Uncanny X-Men 2016 Annual, he becomes capable of even raising the death, but the more he heals, the stronger his urge to kill becomes until they balance one another out.

* FaceHeelTurn
* HealingFactor
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal / StuffedIntoTheFridge: At the hands of Sabertooth who slew her ''very'' messily.]]
* PrehensileTail

to:

* FaceHeelTurn
FaceHeelTurn: When the X-Force attempted to rescue government official Henry Peter Gyrich from the terrorist Mutant Liberation Front, led by Reignfire. Feral hated Gyrich, who was no friend to mutants, and Reignfire persuaded her to join the Mutant Liberation Front and to kill Gyrich battling with her ex-comrades.
* HealingFactor
HealingFactor: Feral is capable of healing mild to moderate injuries much faster than an ordinary human. Injuries such as broken bones can completely heal within a few days. She is incapable of regenerating missing limbs or organs.

* SuperSenses / TheNoseKnows

to:

* SuperSenses / TheNoseKnowsTheNoseKnows: Feral possesses superhumanly acute senses of sight, smell, and hearing comparable to those of certain animals. Feral is capable of seeing with greater clarity and at greater distances than an ordinary human (even in near-total darkness). Her hearing is enhanced similarly, enabling her to both hear sounds that ordinary humans can't and to hear at much greater distances. Feral is able to use her highly developed sense of smell to track a target by scent. Her sense of smell is so acute, she is able to detect the slight chemical differences in different brands of deodorants that, supposedly, have the same scent

* AlasPoorVillain
* BigBad
* TheChessmaster
* FromNobodyToNightmare

to:

\nBorn Eliphas, he was a Roman senator that was bewitched by Selene and turned into a vampire-like immortal.
* AlasPoorVillain
AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: At the end, he is executed by Selene after doing everything in her name. Even his own enemy Warpath was shocked by his death]].
* BigBad
AntiVillain: Its very hard to hate the guy once you learn his backstory. Unlike most X-Men villains, he is neither a supremacist or bigoted himself (though he would join forces with them just to meet his own objectives) and he is motivated primarily to earn Selene's love.
* TheChessmaster
TheChessmaster: He joined the Purifiers and brought Bastion and several others deceased X-Men villains, but this was just a set up so he could feed on their souls as offering for Selene.
* FromNobodyToNightmareTheDragon: To Selene in ''Necrosha''.
* AFateWorseThanDeath: Selene cursed him with eternal life and banished him from her presence. He walked the Earth for ages, always separated from the woman he loved.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He was a HenpeckedHusband whose wife had no qualms in cuckolding with another man in front of him, which made Eliphas the laughing stock of everyone around him. Then he ran into Selene, who offered to love him forever if he were to sacrifice every soul in Rome to her. He failed and as punishment, she turned him into a vicious monster.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: As soon as he walked down his path of villainy, one moment of kindness had costed him everything.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Selene had magically cursed him and made him a vampire-like being. He doesn't share the same weakness as Marvel Universe vampires.
* PetTheDog: Horribly desconstructed, Eliphas was nice to a young slave girl and even gave her some jewels to help her family. After agreeing to sacrifice every soul of Rome, he tells the girl and her family to flee for their safety. Unfortunately for him, they ended up warning the authorities who arrived just in time to stop him from performing his spell.
