* AlreadyMetEveryone: Wolverine was later retconned to have meet loads of different characters in the past, including ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, [[ComicBook/SpiderMan Peter Parker's parents]], ComicBook/BlackWidow, Mystique, ComicBook/NickFury, ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules, Comicbook/{{Daredevil}} enemy Nuke, not to mention basically everybody ever tied to Weapon X. In fact, a revelation about Weapon Plus does this to Weapon X, revealing its ties to Nuke and Project: Rebirth that created ComicBook/CaptainAmerica.

*** The claws were either thin blades or roughly cylindrical and tapering to ''really'' sharp tips, more like true animal claws. The former was more prevalent in the '90s but really depended on the artist, while the latter was especially prevalent in the '70s and '80s, as well as in ''Weapon X'' and ''sans'' adamantium.

* BigScrewedUpFamily: Hoo boy, where to even ''start''. One [[ComicBook/{{Daken}} legitimate son]] is a {{manipulative| Bastard}} sociopath who enjoys toying with others for his own amusement, while another he hasn't seen since he was a baby. His [[ComicBook/{{X 23}} "daughter"]] is a depressed and likely suicidal ex-child soldier and prostitute struggling to turn her life around. He has ''who knows'' [[ReallyGetsAround how many illegitimate children]], many of whom were sent to kill him and he was forced to kill first, only later discovering who they really were, and his father wasn't actually his biological father. And we ''still'' haven't even touched on his half brothers (John Howlett III, and Dog Logan) and adopted daughter.

** The adamantium may reinforce his bones and make his claws that much more dangerous, but it actually ''slows down'' his healing factor because it treats the metal as a contaminant. X-23, in contrast, heals much faster than him because she only has adamantium on her claws, and even grouses at Logan at one point about how slowly he heals. The reason for this was {{Ret Con}}ned, but it still applies. Then again, the healing factor is depicted so inconsistently that this might as well not apply anyway. In one story which featured the X-Men fighting the Brotherhood on Muir Island, Mystique threatens him with a weapon that will deactivate his healing powers and explains that his adamantium bones will poison and kill him quickly if she uses it.

* ButForMeItWasTuesday: He's killed tons a people (mostly baddies but still) to the point slaughtering characters or mooks borders on forgettable or a source of his angst depending on the writer. Best exemplified in the Morrison run when speaking to Angel, a mutant he just rescued by slaughtering some U-Men mooks before being covered in their blood, at a restaurant:

* KavorkaMan: He's a really short, hairy guy with cigar breath and weird hair. He's never without some hot woman or another after him. It's also been repeatedly stated or implied that he smells bad and rarely bathes. Easily explained by two words: [[RefugeInAudacity Animal Magnetism.]]

* SelfMutilationDemonstration: Logan isn't above harming himself or allowing himself to be harmed, usually for intimidation purposes. He's pinned his arm to a table with a knife and then picked the table up with that same arm to freak people out, and allowed a biker to punch him in the face with brass knuckles, making a show of re-setting his jaw and eyeball afterward.

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.

* {{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 {{immortal|ity}} 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.]]

* WorldsBestWarrior: He's one of the greatest fighters in the MarvelUniverse. Wolverine isn't the best soldier (that would be ComicBook/CaptainAmerica), he's not the best fighter (that's split between ComicBook/IronFist and Shang-Chi), he's not the WorldsStrongestMan (that's usually ComicBook/TheHulk) and he's not a PersonOfMassDestruction or PhysicalGod. However, he is [[JackOfAllTrades good enough to put up a fight against all of that]] to be the world's most dangerous man.
* WouldHurtAChild: Logan almost did this to [[ComicBook/YoungAvengers Billy Kaplan]] in ''ComicBook/TheChildrensCrusade''. Thankfully, SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}} stopped him.
* WouldHitAGirl: Logan generally detests violence against women, but that goes out the window when it comes to the women in his RoguesGallery and other similarly lethal female opponents. Lady Deathstrike, the Viper, Lady Mastermind, Mystique, and even ''Rachel Summers'' can attest to that.

* AnimeHair[=/=]HotbloodedSideburns: Logan's standard look since his introduction has been a swept-back mane-like hairstyle that comes to prominent points on the sides of his head, combined with muttonchop sideburns. During Adam Kubert's run as artist of the self-titled comic in TheNineties, the combination was so long that he almost did have an actual mane; in newer works his hair tends to be a more realistic length while keeping the same style. ''Living Between Wednesdays'' actually did an [[http://livingbetweenwednesdays.com/?p=1409 analysis]] of the various aspects of Wolverine's hair.

* {{Flanderization}}: His Healing Factor sometimes gets pushed up to ridiculous levels, like regenerating instantly from a single cell. Normally, it is indeed powerful enough to restore his health from such things as gunshots or stab wounds, but it can take a very long time, and it's nowhere near as good as those from Hulk, Deadpool or Lobo. It has also been implied that if he has a part of him with bones in it removed, he may not be able to regrow it properly due to the adamantium lacing rest of his skeleton.
