For a similar concept (cyborg animals with weapons and increased intellect), but with more pathos, reality, and without RuleOfCool, check out ''ComicBook/{{We3}}''.



* CorporateWarfare: What it turns out Frost wanted the Brute Force technology for- cyborg animals to serve as a private attack group, targeted at enemies of Multicorp. Uproar's first time in the field was to help clear out a rainforest for the Flex Corporation (a Multicorp subsidiary), Heavy Metal gets its debut attacking oil tankers belonging to a Multicorp rival, and the second-to-last time we see them is backing up a false-flag operation to stop an environmental group inconveniencing one of Frost's nuclear plants.



* HumansAreBastards: It's implied that by the time of the Deadpool teamup, this is roughly the opinion that Brute Force has about mankind. It's shown, though, that though they are running a campaign to save Earth and animal life, they do still like some people- chief among them Phil Coulson.



* MegaCorp: Multicorp employs its own mercenary outfit and owns its own farms.

* RealityEnsues: Strapping rocket launchers and laser guns to animals ''might'' run into some problems. The collateral damage and screwups that ensue are spectacular- not to mention hilarious.

* TrueCompanions: Played with. Brute Force often times barely gets along with one another, and frequently get in each other's way. That being said, they've stuck together since the nineties with no sign that they've split up at any point.

** Send Brute Force in to stop environmental terrorists who are threatening to blow up a nuclear reactor! Keeping in mind Brute Force's track record thus far (which has been... less than stellar), it's only the fact that it's a False Flag operation that wasn't ''actually'' going to blow up the plant that prevents massive damage.

* WeaksauceWeakness: The Toxic Horror from issue three dies instantly when Surfstreak shoots it in the face with clean water, since "it was adapted to polluted water, so clean water must have been like poison to it."

* SmugSnake: Oddly for a series with uplifted animals, ''not'' an actual snake- this role is filled by Tailgunner of Heavy Metal. He nearly lets Uproar (the gorilla) get shot in the back because he admires the sneakiness of the human who tried it.

** Brute Force is this in general for Frost. The technology to create them came from his own company, and it wouldn't have seen release until he captured the gorilla from his own labs, causing Pierce to create the team.

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: The foes Brute Force fought were this, or working for an executive: either the head of Multicorp, Frost, or the Philanthropist Businessman ([=DeMal=] who wanted to turn all of humanity into pollution breathing mutants.

* EcoTerrorist: One problem with the series is that the actions of the protagonists can sometimes cross the line into this.
** Soar decides to unilaterally drop a boulder down a smokestack of a factory, shutting it down via massive damage.
** In the Deadpool Bi-Annual comic, they openly attack several Water World theme parks. While it was later revealed that Water World was evil, and even before that their ethics were... not really that great, they're still attacking privately owned property to protect animals and nature.
** Multicorp launches a few false-flag operations to discredit environmental groups, such as the one seen in the opening of the fourth issue.
* {{Filler}}: Of the original four-part miniseries, issue three could be considered this. The main threat is a different man ([=DeMal=]) instead of Frost, has nothing to do with the ongoing storyline involving Heavy Metal, Multicorp, or Doctor Pierce, and isn't mentioned in the miniseries' finale.

** When Dr. Pierce asks why the animals thinks that he's going to take the special armor from Brute Force, the bear points out that they screwed up ''a lot,'' lost the gorilla they were specifically brought here to retrieve, and destroyed even more of the rainforest they were supposed to save.



** The fact that cyborg animals with deadly weapons attacked Water World is shoved off the news quickly because "Are Frisbees Back?" On the other hand, not only is this the Marvel Universe, where this is ''far'' from the weirdest news story one could conceive of, but Water World's CEO is trying to prevent people from knowing his parks are being targeted.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Dr. Pierce, the scientist behind Brute Force, is absent in the the teams reappearance in ''Deadpool Bi-Annual'', with the only explanation given being that the latter turned on the former. Lampshaded by [[WebSeries/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]], who notes that in the years since their last issue, a lot has happened in the Marvel universe that would have resulted in Pierce either dying or severing ties with Brute Force.
