Added DiffLines:

** Soar, when leader of the group, set out on a campaign to destroy... snakes. Literally, he had the group chasing snakes for months because eagles don't like snakes.


Added DiffLines:

* MonsterClown: The first panel in the ''entire series'' shows a group of clowns wielding machine guns bursting into a high-tech lab to steal a gorilla being given cybernetic upgrades. Not only does this establish ''precisely'' how [[EstablishingCharacterMoment utterly mad this series could get,]] it's actually evidence of a later plot point.


Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Strapping rocket launchers and laser guns to animals ''might'' run into some problems. The collateral damage and screwups that ensue are spectacular.


Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* ForTheEvulz: There's no real logical reason for the villain to be evil. He just is.
** Averted with the Philanthropist villain- he has a ''reason'' for being evil, namely, he thinks his plan is the only one that will allow mankind and nature to survive.

* HowDoIShotWeb: It turns out that if you slap power armor onto random animals and give them incredibly deadly weapons of war, there ''might'' be some teething issues. Brute Force, in their first outing, nearly causes as much destruction as the mercenaries they're trying to ''stop,'' and the various members fight among themselves more often than they do their foes (to the point where Soar and Lionheart ''knock themselves out'' while trying to attack Deadpool). Heavy Metal... fails nearly every single mission they are assigned to, usually catastrophically. Tatanka-Tank, being a heavily abused killer whale, ''immediately'' turns on his boss, killing him in seconds.

* ShoutOut: The "I Am... Bear?" line in the Deadpool Bi-Annual is believed to be a reference to [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara's]] "I am a Man!" [[RunningGag running gag]]. Linkara's said he'd be honored if true.

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

Brute Force is a short lived (4 issues, August-November, 1990) Creator/MarvelComics creation, originally by Charles Viola, written by [[Comicbook/TheTransformers Simon Furman,]] and illustrated by Jose Delbo. It stars a team of animal cyborgs known as "Brute Force", later opposed by another team of cyborg animals known as "Heavy Metal". It existed as a shameless attempt [[MerchandiseDriven to sell toys]] (without a toyline, Marvel was allegedly expecting toy companies to buy the toy rights). Nowadays best known for WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall's reviews of the whole series.

* TookALevelInBadAss: In the Deadpool crossover Surfstreak, now called Dr. Echo, was in charge of upgrading the team's armor. He explicitly compared it to Iron Man's Extremis upgrade, but without the "bugs and limitations" that Tony kept in his version.

* MerchandiseDriven: An interesting example as the series was purportedly created by Marvel with the hopes that toy companies would jump on board and create toys of the characteres, but to no avail. WordOfGod from series editor Bob Budiansky was that Marvel's then-Editor-In-Chief Tom [=DeFalco=] was the main motivator for the series.
