* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: Death's Head stands as one of the few beings to ever walk away from a battle in the center of the mind with ''Unicron'', even after provoking him repeatedly.



* LetsYouAndHimFight: Occurs in ''Death's Head'' #10, when an UpperClassTwit manipulates Death's Head and Iron Man 2020 to fight each other while he bets on the outcome.

in ''Death's Head'' #10, when an UpperClassTwit manipulates Death's Head and Iron Man 2020 to fight each other while he bets on the outcome.



** And in Kieron Gillen's ''ComicBook/IronMan'' run. First time was gladiatorial combat, second was because Death's Head was being controlled.



* UnexplainedRecovery: Death's Head surviving a collapsing superweapon wasn't adequately explained the next time he appeared, though he mentioned something about "backups".

Added DiffLines:

* ArcWelding: With the 3.0 versions. See, during ''Planet Hulk'', several 3.0 style Death's Heads were working for Hulk, and he brought them to Earth in ''World War Hulk''. A few months later, in the ''Nova'' tie-in for ''Secret Invasion'', it turned out some of those 3.0s had wound up in the care of Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S., and one Doctor Evelyn Necker, who was later shown to be working on her own little secret project for AIM...


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInJerkass: Not Death's Head II, but his creator, Dr. Necker, during ''Revolutionary War''. In her appearances in ''Nova'', she'd been a surprisingly benevolent mad scientist (due in part to having the hots for Richard Rider). In RW, she attacks both Death's Heads.

Death's Head's first published appearance was in ''Transformers UK'' #113 (May, 1987) when he was contracted by various Transformers to assassinate members of the opposing faction. During a battle between the Transformers and Unicron, Death's Head fell into a time portal and crashed into [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]]'s TARDIS. In defense, the Doctor (then in [[Creator/{{Sylvester McCoy}} his seventh incarnation]]) shrank him to human size and sent him off through time, leading to a confrontation with the Dragon's Claws, a futuristic militia group. Though nearly destroyed in battle, Death's Head was recovered and rebuilt by a [[MrFixit tinkerer]] named Spratt. After settling his score with the Dragon's Claws, Death's Head (with Spratt in tow) left to resume business as a [[BountyHunter Freelance Peacekeeping Agent]]. In September of 1988, Death's Head appeared in the one-page story "High Noon Tex" to ensure the character rights remained with Marvel before his ongoing series.

Death's Head is a MarvelComics ComicBook character created by ''[[Comicbook/TheTransformers Transformers]]'' comic scribe Simon Furman and Geoff Senior. He was originally intended as a one-shot throwaway character for Marvel UK's ''Transformers'' series, but proved [[AuthorAppeal sufficiently intriguing during creation]] that the original script was rewritten so he would survive.

In March 2011, issue #33 of Marvel UK's ''Marvel Heroes'' featured "Hulk vs. Death's Head," written by Ferg Handley and Simon Furman. In 2013, Death's Head I reappeared as a supporting character during two storylines of Kieron Gillen's ''ComicBook/IronMan'' run.

* ComicBookDeath: During an appearance in ComicBook/IronMan, he is stuck inside a self-destructing superweapon, and isn't shown making it out. He shows up in a different title a few months later, [[UnexplainedRecovery completely intact]].

-->'''Geoff Senior:''' "He really was the ultimate intergalactic, time and space hopping, hitch-hiker of the Marvel Universe playing a role kind of similar, in some respects, to Lobo in DCComics."

* FollowTheLeader: Death's Head II's design is clearly meant to invoke the RobLiefeld style popularized during UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks.
