* SecretIdentity: Though she does a REALLY bad job at hiding that Doreen Green is Squirrel Girl, one of her biggest fears is that someone will make the connection dispite her efforts. Played for laughs in Deadpool: Too Soon, where Deadpool tries to hold this secret over her for blackmail, only for everyone else in the room to cut off his threats to tell the both of them that they already knew, including the Punisher, Rocket Raccoon (who never met Doreen before) and Spider-Ham (who isn't even from their dimension).

** The first issue of ''Unbeatable Squirrel Girl'' ignored her mutant origins, instead saying multiple times the she has "partially squirrel blood." In legal terms this would make sense, as by leaving her as a mutant, any live action versions of the character would be under the control of Fox, despite her never having appeared in any X-Men related book, while making her origins a little more vague would leave her fully under Marvel's control should they ever choose to use the character.

Squirrel Girl first appeared in a one-shot story in 1992 in AnthologyComic ''Marvel Super-Heroes Special'' #8 (Winter, 1991); after [[InfoDump explaining her powers]] to IronMan, she showed her invincibility by defeating both IronMan ''and'' SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom. The story was written by Will Murray and drawn by Marvel Comics legend Creator/{{Steve|Ditko}} [[ArmedWithCanon freakin']] [[Creator/SteveDitko Ditko]]. Since the art and plot had a [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] touch that didn't take itself seriously, and it was published in UsefulNotes/{{the Dark Age|of Comic Books}} that marked TheNineties, the story was notable for how out of place it felt.

* SpeaksFluentAnimal: Talks To Squirrels. In fact, it comes as a surprise to her in ''All-New Wolverine'' that other AnimalThemedSuperbeings can't do the same with ''their'' namesakes.

* StalkerWithACrush and StalkingIsLove: Squirrel Girl's crush over [[ComicBook/NewWarriors Speedball]]. She defeats his enemies for him, she breaks into dungeons for him, she invades sovereign countries for him, she travels through time for him, and her fan letters to him are screened by the FBI! And ignoring that time when he was too deep for her, he has responded to her crush with what's seemingly equal attraction.

** Lastly, the squirrels that she has control of only seem silly until one has encountered the tiny raging terror of a [[KillerRabbit rabid squirrel]]. They can climb nearly any textured or penetrable surface. They can jump over two meters in a single leap. They are built to survive falling dozens of times their own height from trees without harm. Squirrels are known as destructive pests in homes due to the fact that the same jaws they use to [[CuteBruiser crack walnuts]] can chew through things like [[ExtremeOmnivore aluminum siding, metal cables and wiring, and support beams]]. And she can control [[TheSwarm MANY squirrels]]. Now imagine this horde of inescapable living bolt cutters working as a [[HiveMind coordinated, intelligent unit]]. ''This'' is what Dr. Doom has nightmares about.
