* EmbodimentOfVice: The Hulk himself is wrath, of course, but there are more subtle examples in his various personalities- Banner classically dealing with issues of self-loathing and fatalism, for instance. Many of his classic foes have also been examples of the trope; for instance the Abomination is typically portrayed as an embodyment of {{Hubris}}.

** Peter David characterized the savage Green Hulk like a child prone to tantrums. Grey Hulk on the other hand would be the embodiment of pubescent desires. As Joe Fixit he worked as mafia muscle and led a hedonist lifestyle in Las Vegas: snappy dresses, fine meals, parties and booze, sleeping with beautiful women...

* PowerBornOfMadness: What the Hulk runs on, and heavily implied to be the reason that Banner not only survived the detonation of the gamma bomb, but why the Hulk is so much more powerful than most, if not all of the gamma mutates that have come before or since. His already fractured psyche created a monster based on the trauma he received as a child, and the personas emerged from different stages of his life that Banner denied himself the person he wanted to be (Savage-the angry child; Joe Fixit-the late adolescent, etc.). Adding to his long-suppressed rage gives the Hulk the ability to get stronger when he gets madder. Also explains his more myriad abilities, like been able to see ghosts, as Banner always feared his long-dead abusive father would come back to torment him again.

* SuperSupremacist: In his more aggressive or villainous forms, Hulk himself is this trope, as the "Banner" portion of his mind is typically portrayed as the side that drives him to save and protect humans. When ofteabsent of Banner, Hulk often hates humans (and many other species, such as HumanAliens) and finds them puny and not worth his time. In the BadFuture of ''Future Imperfect'', this mentality eventually led to him becoming The Maestro, a superhuman despot.

* SuperSupremacist: The Hulk himself is this trope, as the "Banner" portion of his mind is typically portrayed as the side that drives him to save and protect humans. Absent of Banner, Hulk absolutely hates humans (and many other species, such as HumanAliens) and finds them puny and not worth his time. In the BadFuture of ''Future Imperfect'', this mentality eventually led to him becoming The Maestro, a superhuman despot.

* ''Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk'': The Hulk himself is this trope, as the "Banner" portion of his mind is typically portrayed as the side that drives him to save and protect humans. Absent of Banner, Hulk absolutely hates humans (and many other species, such as HumanAliens) and finds them puny and not worth his time. In the BadFuture of ''Future Imperfect'', this mentality eventually led to him becoming The Maestro, a superhuman despot.* SuperWeight: Level 5, but when ridiculously angry, in much the same manner that ''DragonBallZ'' was level 5 towards the end. In terms of infinite potential upper limits of raw power only he is a level 6.

Needless to say, all this complicates Dr. Banner's life quite a bit--and it sure doesn't help that his great love Betty is the daughter of the Hulk's premier nemesis, General Thaddeus E. "Thunderbolt" Ross--and writers have generally run with that, famously [[PlayingWithATrope playing with the idea of the]] {{Super Hero}} to great dramatic effect. While Banner is a good and conscientious man, the Hulk (in the iconic incarnation) is a creature of pure emotion who lacks his alter-ego's finer reasoning skills and thus cannot consciously choose to side with either good or evil, only recognize and defend those who've befriended him in turn. Thus while he gets into a lot of ''very'' violent fights, in the process running up the biggest HeroInsurance bill in the whole Franchise/MarvelUniverse, most of the people he beats up [[KickTheSonOfABitch had it coming]] or otherwise made the mistake of provoking him. He doesn't actively seek out trouble, but the Marvel Universe being the CrapsackWorld that it is, trouble often finds him, for which he is inevitably mis-blamed. This doesn't do much to improve his disposition, as you might expect.
