** Savage Hulk: KnightInSourArmor or PragmaticHero. Extremely noble, well-intended, loyal, heroic, constantly persecuted without understanding why, only wants to be loved and have friends, but cannot understand the society around him, protector of all oppressed peoples around the universe, will be inconsolable after watching ''Bambi'' or seeing a dead bunny, and strictly a force for good as long as somebody (like his former father figure Comicbook/DoctorStrange, or own, as opposed to Banner's, "greatest love of his life" queen Jarella) gives him a comprehensible direction. Basically the most pure-hearted and genuinely heroic version, and seen in TheSuperHeroSquadShow, but non-constructively constantly hunted like an animal due to his sheer scale of power without the maturity to handle it properly. Nowadays, tends to usually be treated more kindly by other heroes when he shows up .

* AGirlInEveryPort: Hulk has had many different lovers and wives, and he's fathered children with some of them. The main reason why he's had so many is Bruce Banner's constant need to stay on the run and find a place where he and the Hulk won't cause trouble or hurt anyone, but he still cannot avoid falling in love with a local. Also, a lot of Hulk's separate personalities consider themselves entirely different people, often disagreeing on which woman they consider their OneTrueLove (if any). Gray Hulk, for instance, moved to Las Vegas and worked as a pimp and a bouncer, acquiring a harem of women in the process. On another occasion, Savage Hulk entered the sub-atomic kingdom K'ai and, after magically having the Bruce Banner personality become dominant in Hulk's mind, fell in love with princess Jarella, The Green Scar was forced off-world by Comicbook/TheIlluminati and found a happy life on the planet Sakaar, along with his new wife, Caiera. On yet ''another'' occasion, an otherworldly deity named Umar took an enraged Hulk back to her dimension to make him her consort. Feeling there was nothing left for him back on Earth, Hulk allowed her to, although his ex-wife, Comicbook/BettyRoss, resented it and eventually followed Hulk to that world.

The Incredible Hulk is a Creator/MarvelComics character, the embodiment of SuperStrength, UnstoppableRage and, of course, YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry. Emotionally-repressed scientific genius Dr. Bruce Banner, while employed as a weapons designer for the US Army, is exposed to a massive dose of [[ILoveNuclearPower gamma radiation]] in the process of saving teenager Rick Jones from a bomb test, and as a result now changes into a gigantic green musclebound personification of his own agitated emotional state whenever he loses his cool.

* ''Joe Fixit'': The "Grey Hulk", and supposedly the first Hulk to ever appear. (In terms of Marvel continuity. Originally, this was the result of a coloring error and [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness inconsistent characterization),]] but really quite different in displayed personality. Unlike the Savage Hulk, Joe transforms at night, or more rarely when Bruce "lets him out". He has an average intellect, and is particularly known to enjoy luxury, rich food, tailor-made clothes, pleasurable company etc. He is also the most amoral of the main personalities, having worked as a mob enforcer. Not as strong as the Savage Hulk but much more crafty, he prefers to rely on manipulation and other underhanded tactics to outmanoeuvre his enemies. Thought to represent the typical teenager that Bruce never let himself become. His portrayal is generally somewhere between a BoisterousBruiser and a truly amoral being. Not to be confused with MrFixit. Joe is the opposite.

* GatheringSteam: Bruce Banner is an ordinary human and needs to be pissed off to even trigger his transformation into the Incredible Hulk, but even once he has transformed, The Hulk is unable to bring his full strength to bear right away, as it is directly correlated to his anger. The angrier he gets, the stronger he gets, and thus with every injury he takes, he gets gathers more and more steam.

Many of the modern characteristics of the Hulk were created by writer Creator/PeterDavid during his ten-year-long stint on the title. For instance, Banner's abusive father and multiple-personality disorder were explored in greater depth during [=PAD's=] run (elements that were originally introduced in a [[http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/triad2.htm Bill Mantlo story]]), which also elevated Rick Jones from perpetual sidekick to a CrazyPrepared GenreSavvy BadassNormal.

* GenreSavvy:
** After so many failed cures, when the ComicBook/RedHulk storyline results in him losing the ability to turn into the Hulk, Banner outright states that he's not expecting his current Hulk-less state to last, and is just doing what he can while he waits for the inevitable.
** In the first issue of the Comicbook/MarvelNOW revamp ''The Indestructible Hulk'', Banner appears to have accepted that his condition has no cure (at least not with present technology) and that his time would be more productively served finding ways to work around his condition rather than attempting to cure it; he literally equates his new philosophy to how individuals with chronic diseases, like diabetes, manage their conditions in order to live as normal a life as possible. He's also decided that it would be more productive both for Banner and for Hulk to work with the authorities rather than living his life constantly on the run, so has approached SHIELD to act as a scientific genius (Banner) / weapon of mass destruction (Hulk) for them.
