* AchillesHeel: While it normally isn't touched on, there is one fatal flaw to Wolverine's HealingFactor: Because of the way memories are formed, if Wolverine's brain were damaged in a specific way, he would be an amnesiac when he recovered. Youtube user The Film Theorists explains in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUT6nET1yjo this video.]]

* {{Ubermensch}}: He lives by his own morals and does not care what others think about his morality... which [[WhatTheHellHero has no restraints against killing in certain situations]]. Thus he fits the trope's requirements of rigidly sticking to a morality that many others often consider at least debatable. See the quote under AntiHero above. On the other hand, he is ''loaded'' with self-doubt and plagued by intense guilt about his past, and if he wasn't effectively [[{{Immortality}} immortal]] he might be suicidal. He sticks rigidly to his morality not because he believes it is the best or most ethical, but because it's an anchor to his humanity, knowing that there are still lines he hasn't crossed yet and that he has some traces of goodness in him. He ''agrees'' with the people who question his morality; he follows it anyway because it's a compromise between [[BloodKnight the man he is]] and [[MartialPacifist the man he wants to be.]]

** Logan was originally supposed to be a one-off [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]] villain. It didn't quite turn out that way.
** His archnemesis Sabretooth used to be a minor [[ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]] villain.

* CanadianEqualsHockeyFan: A couple of quick gags on ''Wolverine: First Class'' showcase that even Logan is this (and it's a ''big'' BerkserkButton to interrupt him when he's watching a game... at least if you are a runaway Danger Room robot looking for a fight, that is).

* And many, many, many, many, many, many, [[OverlyLongGag many]] cameos, and gratuitous appearances across comicland. Even ''after'' his death his presence continues to be felt everywhere, with not only the ''Death of Wolverine'' miniseries, but several one-shots of the aftermath, two miniseries tie-ins (the 5-part ''Weapon X'' and the 7-part ''Logan Legacy''), and a weekly ''ongoing'' follow-up scheduled to begin in 2015 titled ''Wolverines''. The upcoming ''All-New, All-Different Wolverine'' will see [[ComicBook/X23 Laura Kinney]] becoming the new Wolverine in order to honor Logan's memory (all tropes pertaining to her stint as Wolverine are noted on her page).

* TheNoseKnows: His sense of smell is especially enhanced, and gets the most use and mention. In one issue where he's strongly implied to have slept with Mystique, he knew it was her from the moment she walked up to him just by her smell. As he points out in ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'', "[she] can mask herself, but not her smell."

* TheNoseKnows: His sense of smell is especially enhanced, and gets the most use and mention. He is able to recognize people and objects by scent, even if they are well hidden. He can track a target by scent, even if the scent has been greatly eroded by time and weather factors, with an extraordinary degree of success. Wolverine can also use his keen sense of smell to detect lies due to chemical changes within a person's scent. In one issue where he's strongly implied to have slept with Mystique, he knew it was her from the moment she walked up to him just by her smell. As he points out in ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'', "[she] can mask herself, but not her smell."



* SpotlightStealingSquad: Wolverine has become a signature example of the trope.
* SuperSenses: A side effect of the healing factor is that all of Logan's senses are superhumanly keen, although his sense of smell gets emphasized more than the others.

others (See TheNoseKnows). He can see at far greater distances, with perfect clarity, than an ordinary human and retains this same level of clarity even in near total darkness. His hearing is enhanced in a similar manner, allowing him to detect sounds ordinary humans couldn't hear at a greater distances, enough to hear a teardrop in another room that have thick walls with enough focus.
* TameHisAngerTameHisAnger: He tries to do this a lot, but it doesn't last. Notable examples include ''Origins'' where Wolverine and Rose work at a mine in British Colombia and Wolverine finds peace and tranquility. That peace is interrupted when Dog kills Rose. Wolverine later meets a Native American woman called Silver Fox and they fall in love. Sabretooth, jealous of the peace Wolverine found, kills Silver Fox.
