* StatusQuoIsGod: A very dark and [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed one]], Cyke will NEVER be able to gain control over his power, no matter what, any time he finally does is met with a downer ending with him losing it again. He once gained it in the ''X-Men First Class'' two parter "Catalyst"", but was forced to give it up to because it was now godlike level of power.

* BittersweetEnding: In [=AvX=], [[spoiler:Cyclops kills Charles Xavier, the closest thing he had to a father, and several of the X-Men are wanted criminals for their actions during the event. However, Hope and the Scarlet Witch were able to use their powers to get rid of the Phoenix Force, with the unexpected side effect of undoing the effects of M-Day and reactivating the mutant gene; Captain America admits that Cyclops was right when he accused the Avengers of not doing enough to help the mutant race after M-Day, and subsequently the X-Men are officially endorsed by the Avengers.]]


Added DiffLines:

* DeadAllAlong: In ''Comicbook/DeathOfX'' it is revealed [[spoiler: Cyclops died very early on, and the "Cyclops" we've been following throughout most of the story is merely a psychic illusion created by Emma Frost.]]

* TheChessmaster: They don't call him "The General of the Mutants" for nothing. The ''Curse Of The Mutants'' story arc exemplifies this beautifully. Post-''ComicBook/HouseOfM'', this has become one of Scott's most defining characteristics. It ultimately ends up become deconstructed because his teammates, most notably Wolverine and Beast, end up resenting Scott for treating them like chess pieces.

* BadassFamily: His entire family, including his father Chris (Corsair), his brothers Alex (Havok) and Gabriel (Vulcan), his two wives Madelyne Pryor and Jean Grey, his children Nathan (Comicbook/{{Cable}}) and Comicbook/RachelSummers (the second Phoenix / Marvel Girl) and his adopted granddaughter the mutant messiah Hope Summers. This could also extend to Scott's other relatives.

** BarbarianLongHair: In Age of Apocalypse he sported long hair, with PeekABangs, while long hair is not a problem, the haircut in front of his face was. [[spoiler:It was there to hide his missing eye.]]

** Though sometimes it's said to be a part of his power-set, refined by training.



** He's unfortunately unable to maintain relationships with the ones he attracts though; Scott may attract the ladies easily but man, does he have a bad track record with women. Its not completely his fault though, after-all Maddy and him were having problems prior to him leaving (and he intended to and did eventually return to her, only to find her gone), while Jean was at the time of his 'psychic affair' contemplating cheating on him with Logan. He's dated other women too, but not nearly as seriously as these two (with exception of Emma, though their breakup has been far more amicable).

He's dated other women too, but not nearly as seriously as these two (with exception of Emma, though their breakup has been far more amicable).



** Though admittedly, Scott did kind of have reason to be suspicious of Cap, since a) he was gambling everything on Hope being able to control the Phoenix and restart Mutantkind, b) Cap was getting his information on the Phoenix from Wolverine, who even the other Avengers (notably Spider-Man) suspected was going to try and kill Hope before she could become the Phoenix - which is exactly what he tried to do as soon as he got the chance.



* DarkMessiah: ComicBook/{{Magneto}}, of all people, considers him the most shining example of a mutant savior. Although, following [=AvX=], Cyclops' actions did bring mutants back from the brink of extinction.

* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: Scott's good at these, really good. He's played Norman Osborn, the Vampire Nation, Dracula (who he used in his plan to take down the vampire nation) and multiple commanders of invading alien races with no trouble whatsoever.

* UnluckyEverydude:

to:

* UnluckyEverydude: Cyclops is not unattractive physically. His SugarAndIce personality can make him off-putting to certain women women who aren't telepathic, that is, including female students who develop crushes on him. Telepaths can see through his act and know what he's really like. Wolverine chews him out for not seeing how his mysterious facade drives women crazy trying to crack his shell. He sarcastically acknowledges that he is good-looking, but fails to understand the psychological component to his attractiveness. That or he realizes it is better for him not to know.

* KnightInSourArmor: His character development has largely consisted of him growing more cynical, not without reason.

to:

* KnightInSourArmor: His character development has largely consisted of him growing more cynical, not without reason. Mostly being let down by people he trusted. Among other things, he was tricked into cheating on his wife, was cheated on by his phoenix-crazed girlfriend, and his father figure kept his little brothers existence from him.



* TragicHero

to:

* TragicHeroTragicHero: His wife keeps dying, as she acknowledges with her dying words. His relatinship with Emma failed. His friends want nothing to do with him. He wound up accidentally killing his father figure, and everyone acts as though he did it on purpose.
