Daken is the son of {{Wolverine}} and his deceased wife Itsu. Blessed with his dad's {{Wolverine Claws}} (although with a twist or two there) and {{Healing Factor}}, as well as the added ability to give off pheromones, Daken is a younger, darker and edgier version of his dad, who was the dark and edgy poster child of the 70s-90s. He loves Xanatos Gambits, and seducing people just to prove he can, is apparently [[AnythingThatMoves Omnisexual]] (or at least bi-sexual) and smart enough to dupe NormanOsborn and [[ReedRichardsIsUseless Reed Richards]]- but still gets his ass handed to him by his father. Speaking of dad, Daken has quite a few [[DisappearedDad daddy issues]].

Daken first appeared in ''"Wolverine Origins''" #10 (March, 2007), created by Daniel Way and Steve Dillon. He went on to serve as a member of the DarkAvengers. He gained his own title ''"Daken: Dark Wolverine''" in 2010, which was ongoing until 2011.

!!Provides examples of

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Just like his Dad.
* {{Affably Evil}}: Swings between this and Jerkass as it suits his whims or plans or both.
* AlasPoorVillain: ''Twice'', which is really saying something given his personality.
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: Under his Wolverine guise.
* AnimeHair: Daken's hair is a literal inversion of his father's. Where Wolverine's hair is big and tall on the sides, but more subdued on the top, Daken rocks a Mohawk on an otherwise bald head.
* AntagonisticOffspring: Given that he hates his father to the point where he's attempted to usurp Sabretooth's role as his {{Archenemy}} he ''definitely'' counts.
* AnythingThatMoves: Daken plays with gender stereotypes like they were jazz songs with no rules. As in the scene where he seduces a female anorexic supermodel by finger feeding her a strawberry she had been afraid to eat, and then flirts with the nebbishy male fashion designer on the same page without stopping for breath. He follows this up by flirting with the {{Shapeshifter}} Mystique before the end of the comic.
** {{Asexual}}: WordofGod states Daken doesn't actually care for sex, he just uses it as a way to manipulate people.
* AppropriatedAppellation: Daken means mongrel [[BilingualBonus in Japanese]] and was the name he was taunted with as a child.
* BadassInANiceSuit
* BodyHorror: Like his dad, Daken's healing factor means that he tends to get put through the meat grinder on a regular basis.
* TheBerserker: Subverted, people expect this of Daken, given who his dad is, and Daken loves to take advantage of it. In one scene, Daken allows NormanOsborn to think that he has used Daken's temper and hatred for Wolverine to bait him, after which Daken smiles and points out the mistakes in Osborn's cultured facade.
-->'''NormanOsborn:''' "But more importantly, you're MY Wolverine. YOU are Wolverine. Do you know what a hero is?"
-->'''Daken:''' "You mean...like SpiderMan?"
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Let's see.. he survived his mother's murder (which happened before ''he was born!''), watched his adoptive father commit suicide, and was raised by a hated enemy of his father's. Yup.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DeathIsCheap: He apparently died in an explosion he caused after his healing factor was destroyed. [[UnexplainedRecovery He later showed up]], revealing himself behind the new Brotherhood. [[spoiler:Where, after fighting Logan a bit, [[BackForTheDead he died, again]].]]
** [[spoiler: Now he's an undead Horseman of Death for the Apocalypse Twins]]
* DelinquentHair: His hair is done up in a mohawk.
* DepravedBisexual: Depraved would be putting it mildly.
* DistaffCounterpart: His little "sister" {{X-23}}.
** Though if you want to get technical, since she's a clone of Wolverine, she's more like his younger aunt.
** Technically she budded off of Wolvie, she is his "sister".
* DracoInLeatherPants: [[invoked]]Daken is very much a deconstruction of [[http://io9.com/5807707/why-wolverines-smelly-son-shows-the-true-dark-side-of-the-romantic-hero the dark romantic hero]]. Everyone who meets Daken -- his father, Mystique, Norman Osborne, the Fantastic Four, Moonstone -- thinks they've got him figured out. They all think they can reach him or control him. And they are ''all wrong''.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: His dead mother Itsu is the closest thing to a soft spot that Daken has.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: As a member of the Horsemen of Death, he wears a black variant of his Dark Avengers outfit.
* EvilCounterpart: Daken arguably is this to his father.
** More so to his [[{{X-23}} sister]] since Wolverine already has a long established evil counterpart. Daken shows how [[{{X-23}} Laura]] could have turned out(and still might) without any positive guidance in her life.
*** Despite that, they get along quite well, when they don't try to kill each other that is.
* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor: Don't expect him to stay on anyone's side for more than a day. Why everyone is continually surprised by this is a question best left [[MST3KMantra for the ages.]]
* FantasticDrug: Heat, Daken's new psychotropic addiction. Also while he's drugged, there is a rather neat ArtShift. It is also arguably a MacGuffin since it also negates his HealingFactor.
* FetishFuelStationAttendant: [[in-universe]]And OH! does he enjoy this.
* GenerationXerox: In the end he and Skaar don't go along any better than Logan and TheHulk. Much to Wolverine's relief, because he was utterly terrified by the idea of Daken befriending gamma-powered [[RecycledINSPACE space]] [[ConanTheBarbarian Conan]].
* GeniusBruiser: Although not the obvious muscle head his dad is, Daken can pull this off pretty well too.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: He's done his fair share of standing around and letting horrible injuries happen to him for no reason other than this trope.
* GrayEyes: When the colorist actually [[DependingOnTheArtist remembers]] what his eye color his, it's usually depicted as a steely gray. This is done most likely as a contrast to his father's much more warm blue ones.
* HealingFactor: His dad is Wolverine. [[CaptainObvious Duh.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Drowned by Wolverine in ''XForce''.]]
** [[spoiler: Or maybe not. He came back in ''Comicbook/UncannyAvengers'' not long afterwards.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: Oh God, do you want a list of the people he's messed with? He once drove a lover he was messing with to ''suicide'' to get rid of any lose ends.
** [[spoiler:Daken is himself manipulated into getting himself killed at his father's hands by Sabertooth, an even bigger bastard.]]
* MommyIssues: According to his creators.
* MrFanservice: If there is a single issue that doesn't involve him not wearing a shirt, being in tight-spandex, or catering to some form of FetishFuel, the person who finds it deserves [[CosmeticAward a Marvel No-Prize]].
* NotSoDifferent: Daken says this to [[TheHulk Skaar]] the first time they meet.
** He also has one of those moments with his Banner who, currently depowered, convinced him he is as much of a killer as him.
** Issue in question ends with Logan telling Daken that with their relationship as messed as it is, at last it's not as bad as Banner's and Skaar's. [[NotSoSimilar Meanwhile Bruce tells his son that at last they're not as bad as Logan and Daken.]]
** Later used for a much greater effect on Donna Kiel, an FBI agent who'd been hunting down Daken for the past few issues. Daken tells her that he is fond of her, regarding her as his equal, as well as labeling her a psychopath, like himself.
** He has a bit of this with X-23 as well.
* OneManArmy
* PetTheDog: Daken loves to invoke and [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk then subvert this trope]].
** To put it more bluntly, this is a character who has no redeeming qualities whatsoever.
** He seems genuinely fond of X-23, (some of his private thoughts having rather disturbing connotations) who is one of the few people he treats as an equal. He also shows moments of kindness to street kids and children who have suffered rough upbringings.
* ARealManIsAKiller: Subverted, not in the killer sense, but in the sense that Daken enjoys playing with gender stereotypes.
* RealityIsUnrealistic: The part of his origin which involves him as a baby being abandoned on the doorstep of a Japanese couple and taken in by them caused some criticism for using an old plot device that could hardly work in the 20th century. In truth, this happened frequently to children of mixed race who were born right after World War II. Mothers would sometimes leave their children on the doorsteps of sympathetic neighbors in a gamble that they would be taken in.
* Really700YearsOld: Like his old man, Daken is older than he looks. Daken appears to be in his mid twenties or so, but was born just after World War II had ended in 1946.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Daken and Laura take turns delivering this to ''each other'' during their rampage through Colcord's base. Daken tries to call her out on her empathy for others, believing that her skills as a killer make her better than everyone around her, and that her heart only forces her to hold back. Laura flatly tells him that she doesn't fight because she has something to prove, but for something ''bigger'' than herself. She then turns this around on him, asking why ''he'' holds back by not taking the risk of allowing himself to ''actually'' care for anyone. Daken doesn't really have an answer.
* SmellsSexy: He has pheromones that let him nudge people's emotions. The pheromones allow him to push people's emotions in many directions, and Daken has been shown to use this to good effect....He just prefers using it to make himself a sex god. It does not, however, work on non-humans, regardless of sexual orientation, as [[spoiler: [[YoungAvengers Hulking]]]] proved.
* TheSociopath
* SuperSenses / TheNoseKnows
* {{Unobtanium}}: For a while there, Daken had his claws bonded with metal from the Muramasa Blade which negates healing factor, allowing him to threaten even his dad.
* UnwittingPawn: In ''X-Force'', [[spoiler:Daken is ultimately an unwitting sacrificial pawn in Sabertooth's latest scheme to screw up Logan's life.]]
* VillainProtagonist: As opposed to Dad's Anti-Hero status.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: To the point of almost once an issue. Lampshaded in one issue when he begins to take off his costume for absolutely no reason whatsoever, seems to think about it, and then continues.
* WomenInRefrigerators: Daken's mother, Itsu, was murdered before he was born. She had almost no personality developed and was mainly a plot excuse to cause Daken and Logan to fight. His mutant healing factor kicked in and his survived long enough to be rescued by Romulus. This led to the only thing approaching a soft spot he has in memory of her.
* XanatosSpeedChess: This is Daken's go to strategy for human interaction.
