* [[{{Deadpool}} Sometimes, in my game]] ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' I'll shake the screen and berate the player (that's you) for your laziness after winning a fight.

** This trend is carried on in both "Meet The Medic" and "Meet The Pyro", albeit being a bit of a fake-out (the "screens" he runs into ends up being a window and a camera, respectively). Even though the "Meet The Director" comic establishes that these cameras exist in-universe, it's still in line with his personality being aware of BreakingTheFourthWall (i.e. acknowledging that he's a character class, referring to the base as a "map", and teasing his opponents about ragequitting).
