Despite this notoriety, several of the characters he created have gone on to become long-running mainstream A-list properties (most notably {{Comicbook/Cable}} and SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}), and he continues to find (or create) regular work in the comic-book industry.

** {{Deadpool}}: Original co-creator with Fabian Nicieza, began as a CaptainErsatz of DC's Deathstroke the Terminator for the Marvel Universe but quickly grew into [[HeroicComedicSociopath the loon we know and love]].

** {{Youngblood}}: ComicBook/TeenTitans, began as a related project for DC, became more Expy under the writing direction of Alan Moore (along with Moore's Supreme, an Expy of DC's Superman).
* CListFodder: Most of his characters are like this. He created so many characters during his early ComicBook/NewMutants and ComicBook/{{XForce}} run that it was inevitable. One-note idiotic characters like Sumo were killed quickly, while most of the Mutant Liberation Front were either depowered or killed over the years.

** American Agent, interim stand-in for CaptainAmerica (using unpublished art from a CaptainAmerica project) while Liefeld negotiated rights to reprise Fighting American. Fighting American was created by Joe Simon and JackKirby for a different company, but went satirical after a couple of issues when they started giving the otherwise-interchangeable Communist spies names like Hotsky Trotsky. This affair resulted in a lawsuit, resolved by the court ordering that Liefeld eliminate certain similarities to the CaptainAmerica property (among other things, Fighting American was not allowed to throw his shield).

Massive HypeBacklash followed, which [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny gave Liefeld the distinction of being one of the most influential and successful comic artists, and one of the most broadly disparaged]]. Suffice to say that in recent years he is heavily [[http://www.interney.net/blogs/media/blogs/melhoresdomundo/walief1.jpg parodied]] and [[http://progressiveboink.com/archive/robliefeld.html mocked]].

* OnlySixFaces: While his faces could vary -- often the same character would look different from one panel to the next -- certain design implements kept showing up in his work. Aside from the infamous pouches, almost all of his characters possessed gigantic plumes of fire-like hair, and an incredible amount had something around their eyes. ''FOUR'' characters -- Domino, Deadpool, Wildside and Reaper, all possessed round circles around at least one eye, and debuted literally within a few months of each other. Cable had one glowing one and one scarred one. Shatterstar had a star-shaped mark around one eye as well.
** That [[http://progressiveboink.com/archive/robliefeld.html "Liefeld's Forty Worst Drawings"]] linked up there has an entry featuring headshots of two women. They're completely identical except for their hairstyles. Then, just for fun, it challenges the uninitiated to try and figure out which one is supposed to be Hispanic.
