** While fighting the [[ComicBook/{{X23}} new Wolverine]], he assumes that she has the same powers as her father. She uses this to her advantage when he makes him block a kick with his hand, only to pop her foot claws out while he's holding her foot.

* WildCard: Taskmaster will work for HYDRA one moment and ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} the next - his only loyalty is to the one paying him.
** Seemed to be changing when [[spoiler: despite MODOK's expectations, Taskmaster genuinely joined SHIELD's side, and seems to have liked Mockingbird.]]

* BadAss: Taskmaster has on several occasions copied and used explicitly superhuman physical abilities in a pinch (Shi'ar martial arts, which require a lighter, stronger-than-human skeleton and musculature, and bullet-catching, respectively), and has taught himself to move at "twice the speed the human body was designed for" by watching video of various techniques on fast-forward.
** Additionally, he once underwent an experimental process to allow himself to copy actual superpowers via observation, but unfortunately, was interrupted before the process could fully "take".
** That said, he's still otherwise human and such feats take a toll on his body.

Added DiffLines:

* ArrogantKungFuGuy: His ability to mimic the fighting style of anyone he encounters often leads to this, and he's been known to talk down to his opponents about how over matched they are while they fight. It gets him in trouble in ''All-New Wolverine'' while fighting Comicbook/{{X 23}}, as while he can certainly adapt to her ''moves'', he's so busy admonishing her on how hopeless it is for her that he completely forgets (or just plain didn't realize) that her claws aren't all in the same place as [[Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} Logan's]]...


Added DiffLines:

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: The nature of his powers makes this a legitimate possibility any time he mimics something his body is physically incapable of because of a lack of RequiredSecondaryPowers. In one issue of ''Deadpool'' he ''snapped his own spine'' while mimicking Slapstick's fighting style. Because while he can certainly learn the moves by observing, he ''can't'' mimic Slapstick's CartoonPhysics and RuleOfFunny powers, so RealityEnsues.
