* BadBoss: In one late-2010's comic, he's assigned a team of [[KidSidekick much younger subordinates]]. Despite proving both competent and loyal (if a bit [[AscendedFanboy overeager]]), he's killed them all by the end of the issue.

* FriendlyEnemy: Deathstroke and Beast Boy developed a relationship like this in the later '80s and early '90s. [[spoiler: Beast Boy was about to fight him to the death when Deathstroke appealed to his humanity by showing up without his mask, stating that it was the faceless mask that he wanted to kill, not the person behind it. They later talked things over in a diner.]] Of course, this got reversed once Deathstroke [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope jumped back off the slippery slope]] into cold-blooded villainy.

* TeamDad: Evil version. During the Titans East storyline, he even acted more fatherly towards Inertia than he did to his own children [[spoiler: as part of his plan to get the Titans to accept them]]. He gave the little psycho the serum he needed for SuperSpeed while warning him not to abuse it, advised him to dump his even more psychotic girlfriend, and hooked him up with the Rogues in Central City once everything went south for Titans East.

* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: As dangerous of a fighter and as [[PopularityPower popular as he can be]], Deathstroke is still subject to this from time to time. Sometimes he'll be powerful and skilled enough to the point where he'll be shown to be able to give serious trouble to characters as skilled as Batman. Then other times, a few no-name characters will be able to get the drop on him and/or pose a serious enough threat to him that it may not be apparent at first glance that Slade has superhuman attributes.
