* BackFromTheDead: While he's been resurrected several times, his most recent revival was [[spoiler:when the Apocalypse Twins revived him as one of their Four Horsemen of Death. It's not known if the Void has been revived as well.]]
** [[spoiler: It appears, going by Bob's word, the Void ''[[CompleteImmortality never died]]''. It simply got tired of being imprisoned in the sun and shuttled itself off to the White Hot Room.]]

* BewareTheSuperman: Being powerful to such a degree is more than dangerous when also having such serious mental problems. As seen in ''Dark Reign'', he is very easily manipulated. And not to talk about what happens when the Void breaks out. Breaking literally every bone of the freakin' '''Hulk''', rampaging through New York or leveling the whole city of Asgard. And that's by far not everything that this psycho has unleashed during his life.

Asgard (the reputation accrued by the latter feat is one Doctor Strange later exploits when [[spoiler: he needs a distraction and points Bob at Asgardia.]] And that's by far not everything that this psycho has unleashed during his life.



* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: The Sentry has supposedly defeated Galactus either on his own or with the help of [[ComicBook/XMan Nate Grey]]. Debatable given never really shown even in a flashback, the Sentry's unreliable history and [[MagnificentBastard the fact that Nate is very much his father's son]], but Nate's comment afterwards, when Norman Osborn implies that he was manipulating the Sentry ("Cleverness be damned, I just told him the truth."), suggests that it might actually have happened.

* DrivenToSuicide: He's tried more than once.

to:

* DrivenToSuicide: He's tried more than once. His most recent attitude has mostly been to live in a hallucination constructed by Doctor Strange while his body floats in deep space, on the grounds that it's safer for everyone.


Added DiffLines:

** Post his stint as Death in ''Uncanny Avengers'', he's cured, but voluntarily inside one constructed by Doctor Strange, inside his own mind, while his body is floating in deep space. [[spoiler: A desperate Strange lets him out.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HeroicSacrifice: Parodied during his team-up with Doctor Strange against Loki. Some of Stephen's most powerful spells require heavy mental, physical, and spiritual agony lavished upon either himself or a willing vassal. As the Sentry is an absurdly mighty metaphysical being, all the requisite suffering barely phases him and he ''naps'' through the entire fight, allowing Strange to cast reality-altering spells with impunity.

* CurbStompBattle: Sentry has multiple examples of being the one issuing these out. One is Sentry vs. Ares during ''Siege''.
** His "battle" against Carnage was [[http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/1381/na0214.jpg all]] [[http://img42.imageshack.us/img42/4349/na0215.jpg too]] [[http://img213.imageshack.us/img213/4310/na0216.jpg easy]].

* SuperpoweredEvilSide: The Void.

to:

* SuperpoweredEvilSide: He and The Void.Void are this trope taken to its extreme. They manifested as alter-egos of a single person, representing the good and dark sides of humanity, respectively. The Sentry is a superhero and the Void is a supervillain, and in a slight variation on this trope, the Void is exactly as powerful as the Sentry, and occasionally kills someone for every person the Sentry saves.



* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Subverted. His return as a Horseman of Apocalypse, without the Void, was much better received, since everyone had got sick of the whole Void/Sentry dichotomy.

** FridgeBrilliance kicks in - the Sentry is heavily implied to be a major league RealityWarper, and definitely has massive PsychicPowers. It's entirely possible he subconsciously fit himself in like that as part of the IdealHero shtick he had going.



* MultipleChoicePast: In truth, it is still not clear ''exactly'' what the relationship is between Bob Reynolds, the Sentry and the Void (Is the Void the real Bob Reynolds, or is the Sentry, or is neither, or are they both?), exactly what the serum was he took or even whether it actually ''did'' anything, what the exact nature and source of his powers is (I am a superhuman! I am actually the angel of Death! I am a refugee from another universe! I am Galactus!), how the Void really came into existence and whether he is really dead. This, of course, fits in very nicely with the notion that the Sentry is bugnuts insane and genuinely does not know what happened, and perhaps subconsciously even alters reality to suit whatever his psychosis says is the real story that day!

** During ''ComicBook/DarkReign'', he's often used as a yard-stick for power, with Osborn specifically stating that Nate Grey is too dangerous to run loose precisely because he could go toe to toe with the Sentry.

* AllegoricalCharacter: A recurring enemy of Sentry, even appearing more than the Void, in the ''Age of Sentry'' mini is a villain named Cranio who has three brains. He always boasts of being [[{{Catchphrase}} three steps ahead of him]] and is a recurring figure in hallucinations. Given Sentry normally has three personalities in conflict he might be a representation of Robbie being his own recurrent enemy.
