* SecretIdentity: In ''Unbeatable'', she does a horrible job of hiding her civilian identity, yet one of her biggest fears is that someone will make the connection despite her efforts. This is 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 say they'd already figured it out--including The Punisher, Rocket Raccoon (who had never met Doreen before), and Spider-Ham ([[UpToEleven who isn't even from their dimension]]).

Thanks in part to her surge in popularity as a MemeticBadass, Squirrel Girl has also started to appear in other media: She has a supporting role in the cartoon ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'', and she has made several appearances in Marvel-licensed games, often as a playable character. She will join the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse in 2018 as the leader of the ''Series/NewWarriors'' [[note]](despite her never having been part of that team in the comics)[[/note]], played by Creator/MilanaVayntrub.

Added DiffLines:

** Aside from the obvious, she's also routinely teaming up with her friends Chipmunk Hunk and Koi Boi.


Added DiffLines:

* [[ForgotAboutHisPowers Forgot About Her Knuckle Spikes]]: For about twenty-five years, since her first appearance. She admits she doesn't think about them because she has absolutely no interest in stabbing people whatsoever, anyway. (Also, retracting them when they're covered with blood would be a serious health risk without Wolverine-like healing factor.)


Added DiffLines:

* WorldOfCardboardSpeech: Defied. Her friend Nancy uses this in the hopes that Squirrel Girl will stop holding back and really cut loose against [[spoiler:Ultron]], but she insists that she's not really *that* strong.

Well over a decade later, scans of comic books on the Internet became commonplace. And once Doreen's debut was scanned and shared, her story gained many more readers. The fact that Doctor Doom was defeated by such a ridiculous character (and in an equally ridiculous fashion), combined with the fact that said defeat was one of the few Doom losses never [[RetCon retconned]] as being ActuallyADoombot, allowed Squirrel Girl to become a popular [[MemeticBadass Memetic Badass]] in Internet fight threads. This was despite her having only appeared once in a story that virtually no one had read before the mid-2000s. She became an [[AscendedMeme Ascended Meme]] in 2005 when Dan Slott put her on the ComicBook/GreatLakesAvengers in the ''Great Lakes Avengers: Misassembled'' mini-series. She did little of note besides being generally cute and fighting alongside a bunch of superheroes who seemed equally as odd as her; if anything, she came off as a NaiveNewcomer.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: While [[{{Deadpool}} the evil, evil man]] fought Daredevil, he warned him about the walking nukes such as the Iron Mans, the Thors, and the Squirrel Girls. And then when he fought Cable, he warned him about the psychos such as himself, Doctor Doom, and Squirrel Girl. This is an inverted trope in that Squirrel Girl ''really is'' that dangerous, but it is also averted in that she rarely causes any sort of collateral damage (and, in her stand-alone series, tries her best to resolve conflicts without resorting to violence).

** In ''Unbeatable'', Doreen often avoids fighting an opponent to stop them. She is a big believer in ThePowerOfFriendship and has stopped numerous substantial threats by considering their point of view, [[TakeAThirdOption offering other options,]] and generally treating them like reasonable people. (Galactus is invulnerable to all conventional forces, but he is still open to reason.) This kind of bait-and-switch alternates with more conventional victories--she does still have to punch villains sometimes--so you never know what kind of victory she will get.
