Added DiffLines:

* CuttingTheKnot: Invoked by the game, but requires the player to trigger it. Early in the second level, a text popup appears, reading "You can use "light attack->heavy attack" to [[ArmorPiercingAttack break blocks]]." However, you can eschew using melee weapons in favor of blowing the enemies away with one of Deadpool's many guns, which leads to the text popup changing to read [[CombatPragmatist "...or you can just shoot those fuckers, I guess."]]
* DanceBattler: Deadpool's third momentum move with swords equipped has him breakdancing with his swords out.
-->'''Deadpool:''' Yo, this is how we did it back in '83, bitches!


Added DiffLines:

* ObviousBeta: Parodied, like everything else. At one point in the Genoshan prison, Deadpool opens a door, only to find a room with default textures and mooks in T-poses. His response is to immediately close the door and phone Peter to get him to fix it.

* TakeThatAudience: Deadpool preempts any complaints about Rogue being able to fly in the game (despite currently not being able to in the comics) by telling complainers to stop whining about it, move out of their parents' basement, and then get laid.
** He'll also call you a freak if you watch him use the bathroom.

* UnexpectedCharacter: The main villains in the game - apart from Mr. Sinister- are the Marauders. Deadpool complains about how they couldn't get better villains for the game.
* UnexpectedGameplayChange: One probably should have seen the sidescrolling platformer bit coming when they saw the green pipe Deadpool was about to go down.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Deadpool constantly ignores any explanation of the game's actual plot (involving the X-Men and Cable trying to stop Mr. Sinister) and just goes on to do his own thing. Basically, the X-Men and Cable run around trying to save the world while Deadpool - and by extension the player- more or less just screws around.

* ContestWinnerCameo: [[invoked]] Parodied when while helping Death rescue a few mutant souls, Deadpool gets attacked by a {{unique|Enemy}} version of the Storm Thrower enemies with a comically oversized head on his body (specifically, the head of actual contest winner Bill Salina). Deadpool claims that they were supposed to be the guy who delivered him a pizza in the first stage, which leads to the enemy attacking Deadpool while rattling off increasingly absurd pizza selections.



* DeathFromAbove: One of the enemies can fly and sends storms of lightning and hail raining down as his primary attack.

* DeathFromAbove: CreditsGag: Deadpool is listed in all categories, after the names of the actual people who worked on this game.

Added DiffLines:

* FleeceTheBudget: Deadpool openly holds High Moon in very low regards, and ignores the budget entirely, using tons of C4 to make massive explosions and the like. This comes back to bite him when the budget gets so low that the game briefly turns into a pastiche of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI'' and Deadpool has to wire Peter some of his own money to get the game back up to speed. This doesn't stop him from breaking the budget with more explosions during the credits.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Not in that order, but to get Deadpool to go after Sinister when he's thinking about Samantha and her great tacos, Cable says that if he doesn't stop Sinister's EvilPlan, he'll kill Samantha, [[AndThatsTerrible destroy all her tacos]], and everyone on Earth.

* CrashingThroughTheHarem: Deadpool wanders into a cool-looking party full of girls in short-shorts and bikinis while chasing after Rogue; most of them tell him to get lost, but talking to enough of them gains the player the 10 G Accomplishment "Social Deadpool". (It's all a hallucination as it turns out; the only real girl in the room is Rogue, [[DistractedByTheSexy who's yelling for help]].)

* FunWithSubtitles: The game occasionally sneaks things in, such as the winged creature's eaglelike screech at the end being translated as "RAWR! Thanks for playing!"



-->'''Girl 1''': "Oh my god, this conversation is like sooo cliche."\\
'''Girl 2''': "I know, right? It's almost like we were specifically written with female character tropes in mind. It's almost painful blah blah blah *incomprehensible muttering*.

Due to licensing issues, Marvel messed up the licensing deal, resulting in both this game and ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' being out of commission on digital stores [[EpicFail for all of 2 weeks after its release date]]. However, Deadpool was eventually put back on Steam and [[http://www.digitalspy.com/gaming/news/a666244/activisions-deadpool-will-be-breaking-the-fourth-wall-on-xbox-one-and-ps4-in-november.html?rss#~pn3IMKsutIvxsx came to Xbox One and PS4 in November 2015]]. The move was ''very likely'' an opportunistic pne made by Marvel to cash in on the then soon-to-be-released [[Film/Deadpool2016 Deadpool Movie]] which was coming out a few months later. The game was, once again, pulled from Steam in November 2017, adding credence to this theory. [[note]]At least they put it on sale for 70% off the week before they pulled it.[[/note]]

'''White Box:''' Indeed.
