*** Humorously, the top score on ''Deadpool'' isn't the normal multiple of 5 or 10 that the high scores normally are. Instead, it's a proper high score... attributed to Deadpool, who is shown at the start of every game playing the Deadpool pinball table...

Added DiffLines:
*** Of course, in the case of ''Deadpool'', it's not as much standing on the apron as being busy getting his OWN high score on the table.

* PlayerCharacter: The Zen Pinball line has a relatively high number of pinball tables compared to other companies' libraries, real or virtual, where the player fills an individual, specific, named role. The most obvious are the Marvel-themed tables where you play as the titular hero, though even its non-licensed tables will usually have a protagonist the player stands in for, such as Jake in ''Pinball/SorcerersLair'' or Creator/NikolaTesla in ''Tesla''. Even ''Super League Football'' puts the player in the role of the team's manager. Compare this to, for instance, Creator/JerseyJackPinball's ''Pinball/TheWizardOfOz'', where the player, though usually Dorothy, frequently shifts to other characters, or Creator/{{Stern}}'s ''Pinball/{{ACDC}}'', which has no player character at all.

** The playfield of ''Ant-Man'' is a mirrored version of the ''Pinball/TheatreOfMagic'' layout. Ant-Man's helmet follows the ball like Homer's head in ''Pinball/TheSimpsonsPinballParty''. The Pym capsule acts similarly to the Menagerie ball in ''Pinball/CirqusVoltaire''. During single-ball play, the Pym ball acts similar to the Powerball in ''Pinball/TwilightZone''.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: In the event of a ball flying out of a table, a new ball is given to the player to compensate the faulty system. Sometimes, it ends up being hilarious.[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNTQeuDmENI]]
