[[caption-width-right:320:Check me out, [[ComicBook/{{SpiderMan}} Spidey]] ain't got [[FrivolousLawsuit nuthin']] on me! ...[[OhCrap Whoopsy-daisy]]!]]

->''"[[HeroicComedicSociopath Yay, now is]] [[BloodKnight fighty time, fighty time, blood blood blood!]]"''
-->-- '''Me''', [[SarcasmMode giving a lecture on the deep philosophical ramifications of what I represent to the collective unconscious in relation to a post-information age society]]... after I {{Shoryuken}}'d [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Kitty Pryde]] [[BullyingADragon so Wolverine would fight me! ]]

[[NoFourthWall Heya]], [[Creator/StanLee true believing]] {{troper}}! This is me, Deadpool, aka [[RedBaron The Merc with the Mouth]], [[NighInvulnerability The Guy Who Won't Die,]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Regenerating Degenerate]], [[OccidentalOtaku Chiyonosake,]][[note]][[YouAreTheTranslatedForeignWord Wolf of Rice Wine]], so cool, I know.[[/note]] and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking The Crimson Comedian]]. I'm a Creator/MarvelComics mercenary AntiHero character, related to the ComicBook/{{X-Men}} and SelfDemonstrating/{{Wolverine}} in particular. I appeared in print for the first time in ''NewMutants'' #98 (February, 1991) as a [[CaptainErsatz ripoff]] of [[Creator/DCComics DC]] mercenary [[ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}} Deathstroke the Terminator]]. But that's old news. I'm all-new, I'm all-different, and boy does that feel good!

[[WolverinePublicity I appear in many different comics]] in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse. Besides my own series (which I'm pretty sure came with foil alt-covers ''and'' a collector card) the biggest mutie badasses they've got are lining up to team with the dude who went toe-to-toe with SelfDemonstrating/TheIncredibleHulk and came out in one piece -- and that was the one time I was ''trying'' to lose! I can beat anyone! Well... except that ''freaking'' ComicBook/SquirrelGirl. She kicked the ''mucus'' out of me constantly. But hey, that's OK! She did that to [[SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom everybody]]. Truly, she's the single greatest threat to the multiverse. Well, except maybe {{Galactus}}[[note]]Wait, didn't she beat him too? Yes, she did, thank you bullet point![[/note]]... and [[MonsterClown clowns]]. Never forget clowns.

As you're probably noticing ''just'' about now, [[MotorMouth I loooooove to talk]]. Yes, it's my most valuable asset: the lungs to provide endless witty banter in the heat of battle! [[BlatantLies In fact]], '''[[BlatantLies everybody]]''' [[BlatantLies loves to hear me talk]]!

OK, I know what you're asking yourself: "How could a single -- albeit snappily-suited -- mercenary become so ''incredibly awesome'' in so many ways?" Oh, gather 'round, kiddies, this is gonna be good. See, my first big splash was hunting down and killing ''every single one'' of the Interweb feebs that thought it would be hilarious to star me in a "Ninja Franchise/{{Spider-Man}}" meme. Caption ''this'', suckers! On the other hand, my own [[MemeticMutation memetic monologues]] led to me becoming '''''THE BEST SUPERHERO EVER'''''. That and the fact that [[BreakingTheFourthWall I always talk to my loyal (but still weaker) fans]]. [[SelfDemonstratingArticle Like now, for instance]]. You lucky, lucky nerds!

Yes, yes, I'm getting to that: "How could a dweebish square like Wade Wilson ever become ''the sexiest mercenary alive''?" Tricky question. Best I remember is some nice ice-cream salesmen told me they could fix my terminal cancer by injecting me with {{Wolverine}}'s man-juice (and by that I mean his DNA. [[AccidentalInnuendo Perv]]). Suddenly... ''-insert Dramatic Fanfare here-'' No, wait, let's go with that old [[Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan Six Million Dollar Man]] thing instead. Yeah, I like that better. ''Bip-bip-bip-bip-BIP''... I became better, faster, strongerer and even got [[HealingFactor the ability to heal quickly]], so that whenever the cancer shows up it ''instantly'' gets fixed... which is good, because it keeps showing up. As in instantly ''after'' it gets fixed. Yeah, you ladies knew it, right? I am [[PunctuatedForEmphasis just. That. Charming]].

Anyhoo, after a few zillion rounds of this, I became [[BodyHorror so freaking handsome]] that '''[[GoMadFromTheRevelation my brain exploded]]'''. Eventually, my magical insanity powers allowed me to figure out that [[MediumAwareness I'm a comic book character]]. From then on, I became [=BFFs=] with my thought bubbles, exposition panels, and Creator/StanLee. My fellow Weapon X classmates had run a '''pool''' to figure out which one of us would be '''dead''' first, so I naturally named myself [[AwesomeMcCoolname Dr. Professor Carlos Winston Lazarus McBatman]]. Then I realized that I couldn't spell it, so I went with [[MeaningfulName Deadpool]] instead.

Anyway, so you wanna know my fighting style, huh? Why, ''[[ConfusionFu being absolutely rassum frassum crazy]]'' is my fighting style, kiddies! DontTryThisAtHome! Wait... y'know what, go ahead, makes my job easier in the long run. Guns, [[StuffBlowingUp explosives]], guns, my trusty {{katana|sAreJustBetter}}, [[DepartmentofRedundancyDepartment guns, guns]], [[ImprovisedWeapon anything I find on the ground]], [[ItsALongStory doorknobs]], guns, and [[OverlyLongGag firearms]] are all ways I kill people. That is, of course, on the rare occasions my razor-sharp wit hasn't caused them to crumple into sobbing balls of surrender ''long'' before that. My good buddy Weasel also provides me with shiny new gadgets that help to kill more, so I can [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands use any power I want]].

Also, you better never mistake me for [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker that other psychotic, fourth-wall breaking clown]] who sided with [[Creator/DCComics those DC fellas]]. You know how many of my stupid Website/{{Facebook}} friends ask me to "[[Film/TheDarkKnight do that pencil trick]]"? '''''EVERY SINGLE ONE'''''.

!!Lots of comics feature my unique uniqueness:
* ''NewMutants'': Where I first appeared, then I started popping up in ''Comicbook/XForce'' once the title switched over to something that was DarkerAndEdgier.
* Five miniseries, ''Deadpool: The Circle Chase'', ''Deadpool: Sins of the Past'', ''Deadpool: Suicide Kings'', ''ComicBook/DeadpoolWadeWilsonsWar'' and ''Fear Itself: Deadpool'' (written by '''holycrap''' [[Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja Chris Hastings]]!!!).
* My ongoing ''Deadpool'' series: The first incarnation appeared from 1997 to 2002; the second volume began September 10, 2008.
* ''Agent X'': How is Agent X related to me? ''It's a mystery!''
* ''ComicBook/CableAndDeadpool'': After Cable went bye-bye, I had to find some new apprentices to [[HoYay/CableAndDeadpool fill the hole in my heart]].
* ''Wolverine & Deadpool'': Only available if you can [[UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} get scones with it]].
* ''Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth'': A second ongoing series which began in 2009.
* ''Deadpool Team-up'': A ''third'' on-going monthly, also starting in 2009. I'm gonna suck every dime outta this inexplicable and totally undeserved popularity until my lips fall off.
* ''Deadpool Corps'': Which features me and [[DistaffCounterpart Lady Deadpool]], Headpool, Kidpool, and Dogpool as my amigos. Me and Lady Deadpool have a thing going on. [[DontExplainTheJoke I'm saying that]] [[ScrewYourself I screw myself]].
* I also drop by in that '''"DOOMWAR"''' ComicBook/BlackPanther event. Apparently, my unscrupulous mercenary nature, healing factor and screwed-up-mind are needed to stopping that crazy Von Doom. [[WolverinePublicity What can I say, they need me]]. [[MoneyDearBoy And the paycheck is HUGE]]. [[AmazonChaser And I also have hot girls backing me up]]. BEST. JOB. '''EVER'''.
* There's also this ''Deadpool: Pulp'' thing going on, which is like the ''Noir'' line of Marvel, except instead of the 30s it's the 50s! Looks nifty so far, GovernmentConspiracy, me up against a FemmeFatale (they picked [[MostCommonSuperpower Outlaw]], not bad if you get what I mean). and with the backdrop of '''COMMUNIST PARANOIA!'''
* I drop by this '''5 RONIN''' March 2011 event, [[BlatantLies engaged in a heartwarming tale]] of five samurai being wronged by a particularly nasty daimyo. I'm focused in the fifth issue, [[EnsembleDarkhorse of course they save the best for last]].
* You can also see me utterly destroy the Marvel Universe in August 2012, in my 4 part miniseries: "DeadpoolKillsTheMarvelUniverse!" This version of me got his brain messed up by Psycho Man, trying to make me into a more effective killer and it worked......[[GoneHorriblyRight Too]] [[KillEmAll well....]]
** This version of Me manages to get a [[EnsembleDarkhorse limited series again,]] called ''Deadpool Killustrated,'' where he doesn't just kill Marvel Alternate Universes, [[OmnicidalManiac but goes out of his way to kill the all fiction itself.]]
*** He's getting a ''third'' mini-series called ''Deadpool Kills Deadpool'', in which he decides to go after the other versions of Me, including girl Me, dog Me, brat Me, and whole new versions of Me. But this time, he's gonna have to deal with the one, true Deadpool. That's right everybody, this time he's not dealing with [[Literature/TheThreeMusketeers French dudes]] or [[Literature/LittleWomen chicks living in a cabin]], but the original (and might I add best) Merc with a Mouth: '''ME'''!
* With the {{Marvel NOW}} thing happening, I'm now on yet another self titled series. My first job it it being killing the presidents. All of them. Well, all the dead ones anyway.
** I'm also now on the {{Thunderbolts}} forming an all black and red ream with ComicBook/RedHulk, [[ComicBook/{{Venom}} Agent Venom]], ComicBook/ThePunisher, ComicBook/{{Elektra}}, and former Hulk enemy The Leader. ComicBook/GhostRider also joins up later on.
** Before the Zombie craze ends I needed to be in a mini-series with those ghouls and thus Marvel made the cleverly named "Night of the Living Deadpool"
** And in another mini series I'm fighting Carnage. As in the red Venom clone, though there's also a lot of literal carnage.

!!My incredible awesomeness allows me to also transcend print media:
* ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'', although Wade Wilson was more in character when he was a normal person than the abomination I can only describe as [[FanNickname Dudepeel]] (eew!). The actor who humbly played me, RyanReynolds ([[OneOfUs himself a fan of yours truly]]), seems determined to do a more true-to-the-comics version in the unlikely event that I get my own spin-off movie. Because of his portrayal, People Magazine named him (and by association, moi) Sexiest Man Alive. What a guy!
* I decided to animate myself as a member of Weapon X in ''[[WesternAnimation/HulkVS Hulk Vs. Wolverine]]'', the first time I ever got animated excluding [[WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}} the 1990s X-Men cartoon]] where some guy called Morph decided to transform into me for a second. Creator/NolanNorth provided my heavenly voice and although I never mentioned I was in a cartoon, I was still cool.
* I was going to star in ''WesternAnimation/{{Wolverine and the X-Men}}'' in its second season (with Nolan North voicing me), but [[ExecutiveMeddling some executive decided to cancel the show]]. What the hell?
* John Kassir, also known as [[Series/TalesFromTheCrypt The Crypt Keeper]] and [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime the first Ice King]], moved my vocal cords in ''[[VideoGame/XMenLegends X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse]]'' and both ''VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance'' games.
* I also decided to drop into ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', with Nolan voicing me again. '''[[MemeticMutation F*@# THE KNICKS!]]'''
* I'm also a boss battle (Creator/NolanNorth again -- seeing a pattern here, folks? Me neither!) in ''VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions''. In [[UltimateMarvel the Ultimate Verse]]! Boo! Though this Ultimate Deadpool [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap retains some of my greatness]] (Kassir even [[ActorAllusion shows up]] as one of my mooks for bonus nerd points).
* I'm in the ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSuperHeroSquadShow Marvel Super Hero Squad Online Game]]'', voiced by Creator/TomKenny. The first time I was spotted was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FRRPu9kfMo in this trailer]]. Blink and you'll miss me, but you can clearly see me shooting an exploding Piņata! Weird. In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1EjrLaBucA my spotlight video]], I demonstrate my awesome abilities that include using a big hammer, a watergun pistol (see, people, I can be violent and PG at the same time too) and, of course, my own life bar to hit people.
* I even made a cameo in the [[Anime/MarvelAnime X-Men anime]]. Unfortunately, they never gave me a speaking role.
* [[{{Defictionalization}} I even managed to break into]] RealLife, too! [[http://www.wenatcheeworld.com/news/2011/may/25/self-appointed-superhero-watches-over-wenatchee/ You can see me patrolling the streets in Wenatchee Valley]]. And again at Comic-Con! I even brought my health bar and got to play in an ''Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3'' tournament (playing as myself, of course)!
** And since I knew those guys from Creator/{{Activision}} were gonna screw up the official presentation of ''my'' game, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPwXoYBa1jw I went there personally]] to make sure they didn't change the name to "Call Of Duty 10" in order to sell more copies.
** And after many years as only a comic book character, I finally decided to show up in the Marvel headquarters of New York to set some things straight. First, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9dfAkiSxtQ I tried getting a job in the Human Resources department]], I presented my awesome CV and of course, asked for a position worth of my unique skills (Deadpooling isn't easy, folks), but they had the nerve to ''reject me'' (Now I know why everyone complains about you on the internet, Marvel. You'll read from me in some board soon enough...). Next, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjNttk_vcmw I was summoned to the legal department]] because apparently some people didn't like my highly refined vocabulary, so a "lawyer" informed me about the words I'm not supposed to use (seriously, if they aren't [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney dramatically pointing at people and shouting in a courtroom]], lawyers are so boring). Finally, I got completely bored, so I decided to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qahsEdaRjTM find myself in a giant poster of Marvel characters]]. Can you imagine my surprise when I found out that I WASN'T IN THE POSTER and what's worse they had some people I'd never heard of before instead of ''me'' ([[BlatantLies and I know everyone]])? Oh, but that wall won't be there for long, the only question is if I should take down just the wall or [[DisproportionateRetribution the whole building]].
** And one day while I was in Sydney, taking the train at Blacktown, [[http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/nsw/deadpool-arrested-on-sydney-train-police-alerted-to-superhero-armed-with-guns-grenades-and-ninja-swords/story-fni0cx12-1227001404525 some people tried to get me arrested!!!]] Turns out that the police, equiped with full body armor gear, was waiting for me at one station. I just wanted to get some money for some children but nooooo, arrest the weird guy dressed in red, armed with katanas and pistols and taking the train like a [[BlatantLies total normal guy]]. And what's worse, they had the nerve of confusing me with Spider-Man!!! I'm never going back to Sydney again.
* I'm also a recurring character in [[TheOnlineWarrior Maximilian's]] hit series ''AssistMe'', where I get hired to assassinate Max and later Dr. Doom! [[spoiler: I end up blowing myself up like that one time at EVO 2011, but after growing my limbs back, I team up with Taskmaster and M.O.D.O.K. in a badass 3-on-3 brawl against Wesker, Doom, and Strider! Right now, I'm stuck trying to get that [[VideoGame/{{Okami}} damn dog]] off me-OHGODTHEPAIN!]]
** After being left out of season one, I had to march into that cheap bastard [[TheOnlineWarrior Max's]] house out in Santa Monica and demand he do a character tutorial of me for ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeGp29UPcEE&feature=BFa&list=PL81BB1789AB86CC89 Check it out]].
* TheInternet loves me! I'm the star of many Website/YouTube videos and {{fan art}}s. YouMightRememberMeFrom [[WebVideo/ImAMarvelAndImADC some of my super exciting adventures]], particularly those with [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Rorschach]] (which had a ''bitching'' ThemeSong, sung and written by me of course).
** Also, I'm in love with that renowned [[KoreanPopMusic Korean song]] of my pal Music/{{PSY}}, so in order to show my devotion to the song, not only [[http://images.wikia.com/marveldatabase/images/f/f3/Avengers_Vol_5_1_Deadpool_Variant.jpg I crashed the cover of "Captain America and pals" with a demonstration of my awesome dancing skills]] but also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xo-tWlETq8w I went out to the streets and showed the mere mortals how a dancing god...well dances]]. my awesome video already has more than 11 million views and we all know 1 million is because of PSY and 10 million because of me.
** And I'm also on Website/{{Twitter}}! I used to be on [[http://twitter.com/realdeadpool @realdeadpool]], but now I'm on the much more clear [[https://twitter.com/Deadpool @Deadpool]]. Follow me, you '''know''' you want to!
* {{Franchise/LEGO}} has now chosen to immortalize my wonderful likeness in plastic. Buy me up, people!
** And if you're so poor that you can't afford me in beautiful plastic form, don't worry, for I'll be making an appearance in my LEGO form on the videogame [[LEGOAdaptationGame LEGO Marvel Super Heroes]] and I'll be playable too! (But only after you complete all the side missions I narrate!) So, time to save money people, those [[TheSeventhGenerationOfConsoleVideoGames 7th generation consoles]] aren't cheap (and while you are at it, buy my LEGO figure too, pretty please...).
* And now [[http://store.steampowered.com/app/224060/ I have]] [[VideoGame/{{Deadpool}} my own game!]] And it's all about me! Mankind, you're welcome. And if there's still one person on earth who apparently hates quality products and is undecided whether to buy it or not, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qT6hrd6lH0o here's my launch trailer]].
** After watching it, I'm sure you're desperate to get it, right? I know, I'm awesome like that, but I bet that awesome dubstep helped to seal the deal too.
*** Why are you still reading this? GO BUY MY GAME! Don't pay no mind to those critics that gave it "mixed reviews" or some crap like that, they don't know jack about video games anyway. Trust me, my game's ''that'' awesome. I even met some [[AngryJoe Angry Puerto Rican]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSI1sKCGjHM to convince him of its awesomeness]]!
* Of course, that still wasn't enough for me, so I offered myself up as a prize in ''VideoGame/MarvelAvengersAlliance''. Yes, I'm so good, everyone has to compete for my hand in... fighting the bad guys! Those who ended up NOT getting me... well there's one thing to do... [[RevenueEnhancingDevices MONEY, BITCHES!]] (Or just farm CP up, if you're that patient type...)
* And now I'm on ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet 2'' [[http://www.littlebigplanet.com/downloadable_content_items/1228 too]]! Well, my uniform actually, for those Sackboy thingies... But hey, at least it's guaranteed to make 'em look at least 115% more awesome!
* My uniform is also in ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends''. The ninja Kennen can buy it and call himself Deadly Kennen!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amH3CR8toIM I got my own episode]] in the web toon ''WebAnimation/BadDays'', created by the makers of ''Disassembled''! [[SilenceIsGolden I don't talk during it]], but you'll still get a good laugh. Looks like it was more of a bad day for my sidekick Bob than it was for me! I also pop in some others' episodes.
* I '''finally''' got a speaking TV role in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'' episode geniusly titled, "Ultimate Deadpool"! MyRealDaddy Joe Kelly wrote the script, and Creator/WillFriedle provides my voice (not NolanNorth, but still does a great job and I am younger here than in other depictions). This show turned me into a former ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} agent, since the titular web-head gets his training through them. Considering how blatantly he stole my fourth wall-breaking, cutaway-inducing shticks, I kind of wish I replaced him as the star (and that "Ultimate Deadpool" title card looked pretty sweet too)!
* I got to fight the [[{{Franchise/Batman}} big cheese]] himself in this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAg2m5UlBYw vid here]]. [[spoiler:I lost, yeah, but]] I managed to get video of {{ComicBook/Catwoman}}'s tits, and show me with {{ComicBook/Deathstroke}}'s head. [[spoiler:Plus, my death, that doesn't really stick...]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis It. Was. Awesome!]]
* Now I have my own [[VideoGame/ZenPinball DIGITAL PINBALL TABLE!]] How cool is that?! It's the greatest pinball gaming experience of all time (well, at least it's better than that [[ComicBook/IronMan Iron Man table]] anyway).
----
!!Some of the many beautiful tropes that describe me include:
* AffablyEvil: I am "sadistic, evil, but charming as hell."
* AlliterativeName: Wade Winston Wilson.
** Creator/NolanNorth and RyanReynolds have both done my voice. [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal See what I did there?]]
* AlternateUniverse: Several iterations of yours truly have been made into comic form for your perusal. There's also that Deadpool Corps thing, where we're all alternates of ourselves! FUN!
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: So what if people call me the discount version of Wolverine? That guy can get his butt kicked by refrigerator magnets!
* AmbiguouslyBi: What? It's ''ambiguously'', not ''completely and utterly''. Jeez, you guys are so sensitive...
** Okay, fine. I'm a raging [[WordofGay omnisexual]]. Are you happy now? Not like it's helping me get laid more often.
* AntiHero: I am normally a NominalHero, although it really [[DependingOnTheWriter depends on who's writing me]]. Recent years have depicted me as leaning more towards a hero.
* AntiVillain: I'm a NobleDemon on the SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains.
-->'''Some Creepy Shapeshifter:''' You won't kill me. You're a superhero.\\
'''Me:''' No. I'm not. [''Neck Snap'']
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Remember tropers, Ultimate Me is [[VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions available for black ops, missions, assassinations, and birthday parties!]]
** And when I made a guest appearance (or two or six) on ''WebVideo/ImAMarvelAndImADC'', I talked about how my guns allow me to interrogate people, shoot fleeing suspects, and get free [=DVDs=] from Best Buy!
* AssKickingPose: I [[InvokedTrope invoke]] it in ''[[WesternAnimation/HulkVs Hulk Vs. Wolverine]]'', and it did the trick.
* AssShove: I have to use ''a lot'' of lube to hold all of my weapons.
* AtopAMountainOfCorpses: In ''ComicBook/CableAndDeadpool'' #26, natch!
* BaaBomb: I had an inflatable sheep gun at one point. Unfortunately, the one time you feebs have the honor of seeing it, it fails me.
--> '''Yours Truly''': Missed? I '''never''' miss with the sheep gun.
* {{Badass}}: Oh yeah. I am exactly that: ''A character who gets away with outright insane stunts that would never work in real life''. Most times it overlaps with my CrazyAwesome. [[DudeWheresMyRespect Not that many people are willing to acknowledge how badass I am, though]] ([[CaptainOblivious they're just envious]]).
** I'm so badass that even Bullseye was afraid of facing me down. I inspired fear into the man who regularly fights [[Comicbook/{{Daredevil}} the Man Without Fear]]. Wrap your mind around that one.
** Speaking of Bullseye, just head over to my [[Awesome/{{Deadpool}} CMOA page]] to see what I pulled last time we met.
* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: I once made a promise to Sandi that I wouldn't kill her [[AssholeVictim abusive boyfriend]]. Tasky... [[KickTheSonOfABitch didn't make any promises]].
* BadassTransplant: Since [[RunningGag I am not a mutant]].
* BaldOfAwesome: Having your body constantly torn apart and rebuilt by cancer and a healing factor does that to ya. But at times I have been drawn with hair, DependingOnTheWriter.
* BeenThereShapedHistory: ''IngloriousBasterds''? [[http://www.funnyjunk.com/Deadpool+vs+Hitler/funny-pictures/5072129 Amateurs next to me, Nate and]] NickFury! Take that, [[StupidJetpackHitler Stupid Time-Travelling Hitler]]!
* BerserkButton: I've got quite a few of 'em (though not enough to qualify for HairTriggerTemper).
** Even being reminded of the Weapon X project brings me to a frothy rage.
** And '''never''' go into my house unannounced. I ''hate'' surprise guests.
** Also when T-Ray burned off my mask, and later when Zoe and Monty found me without one. They also went inside my house too, so they got ''a double beating''.
** Also, don't dis my chimichangas. Seriously, I will beat you for it with a humorously oversized mallet, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPwyl0BkjMU even if you are the Cookie Monster]].
** Being asked to do that PENCIL TRICK FOR THE GAJILLIONTH TIME! I just can't get away from it!
** Don't hurt kids. ''Ever''.
** Saying the prequel ''Franchise/StarWars'' trilogy was better than sequel ones [[http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lvpvea0A441qa3cldo1_500.png will be the last words you ever say]].
** I... AM... NOT... SPIDER-MAN!!!!!!
* BettyAndVeronica: In ''Merc With a Mouth'', while both of them were jerks, the blonde, serious, and usually fair Dr. Betty is the well... Betty, and the let loose darker haired Dr. Veronica, who was just using me as a booty call (not that I'm complaining) and eventually turned into a zombie and tried to kill me (She is far less attractive as one. Trust me on this) is the, um... Veronica. Huh. You think my writers are tropers too?
-->'''White Box:''' More like they'd grown up reading {{Archie|Comics}}.
* BigEater: All that Merc Work makes me hungry!
* BiTheWay: Its canon that I'm pansexual, a more inclusive form of bisexual.
* BitingTheHandHumor: Why, yes. You do suck. Especially at {{fighting game}}s.
* BlackComedy: Par for the course. I'm a ''PSYCHOPATH''.
-->'''Me''': [[SarcasmMode Astute observation]], CaptainObvious.
-->'''Me''': Wait, [[SelfDeprecation did I just diss myself?]]
-->'''Me''': [[TalkingToThemself And this just surprises you right now]]? I mean, me?
* BlessedWithSuck: I'm a living cancer! Of course I would enjoy the sweet smell of Death... in more ways than one.
* BloodKnight: I love fighting and killing. Read the page quote, and you'll know what I'm talking about.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: I can be very heroic and friendly when I want to be. But blowing people up is just so much fun! You can see my dilemma.
* BodyHorror: In the beginning of the ''Deadpool and his much less badass (but still vaguely attractive) sidekick Cable'' series, we both get infected with some kind of virus thingamajig that overrides said sidekick's techno-organic virus and my healing factor and [[{{Squick}} nearly melts us]], and the only way we can stop it is by Cable giving me some of his blood and vice versa (yuck. Luckily we did ''not'' haveta kiss as I initially feared). I end up turned into Wade-juice before I can get to Nate, though, so he uses his telekinetic powers to absorb me into his body and then throws me up (remember when I said yuck three sentences ago? Strike that. ''This'' is yuck-worthy). The whole gig gets [[BodyHorror even more disgusting]], because from that point on, whenever Nate tries to teleport, his teleporting whatzamacallit recognizes us as one person and fuses our bodies together at arrival. He finds a way to fix things, though.
* BreakoutCharacter: I may have started small, but it's scientifically proven that I am the most greatest Marvel character of all time.
--> '''Wrecker''': Buncha minor league wannabes, yer kidding right?\\
'''Me''': Wannabes?\\
'''My Thought Box''': Yeah, we got two books out right now.\\
'''My Other Thought Box''': [[ShamelessSelfPromoter And another one coming out next month]].
** I '''steal''' ''VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance''. After all, I refer to my team as [[AGoodNameForARockBand "Deadpool and his Cronies."]] During the closing credits of the sequel [[spoiler: I argue with the developer over not being powerful enough and the game not being called "Deadpool And His Inferior Friends." Then he goes ahead and nerfs me and has the nerve to threaten me by making me DLC! What an ass!!!]]
* BroughtDownToNormal: [[spoiler:I lost my HealingFactor and immunity to death in one arc.]] Can't say I'll miss them. But I can say that [[StatusQuoIsGod I got them back a couple issues later]]. Can't fight Harry S. Truman without them, am I right?
* BuddyCopShow: There was this time I got stuck with this guy Cable. He was a straight-laced stickler for protocol, and me an unpredictable loose cannon with several cannons of my own.
** ''Rorschach and Dead-poooool! A nut and a fooool!''
* BullyingTheDragon: I once did this to the Hulk in ''Operation: Annihilation''... NOW DON'T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT, I had a plan with this, it was for him to smash me so hard I couldn't regenerate. [[WrongGenreSavvy He assumed that this was part of some trap]], so I threatened to detonate some nukes if he didn't kill me. To bad when I pushed him hard enough, there were some children around.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: I mentioned the whole "bat guano crazy and immortal badass" thing right?
** Taskmaster even once admitted that I was a better merc than him.
** Though most of the jobs I take don't end well for me, or the client either for that matter. It could be that's why people stopped hiring me for a while.
* ButtMonkey: Bob. He's lonely, gets a lot of bad luck, and I LOVE to abuse him.
* ButThouMust: After the whole [[MoralEventHorizon "I Screw Weasel"]] arc, some [[ExecutiveMeddling Vegas Executives]] wanted me to be an enforcer full time... [[DefiedTrope but]] [[CurbStompBattle I begged to differ]].
* ButterFace: Nice, saliently muscled body (under the spandex anyway) but the face is... not that attractive to say the least.
** Until I finally reverted my face to its natural, pre-altered space! [[http://imgur.com/h5EhV As if I didn't have enough ladies chasing after me already...]]
* CanadaEh: That's right! Your's truly, the greatest merc on the planet, is from the greatest, whitest, northiest country on the planet!
* CaptainErsatz:
** Yeah, hate to admit it, but I started out as a ripoff of that Comicbook/{{Deathstroke}} guy from ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' (who is a rip-off of {{Main/Taskmaster}}! Making me a rip-off of a rip-off... We have to go deeper!). You can see it in the costumes, the jobs, even the names! As a tribute, Joe Kelly managed to sneak me into Franchise/TheDCU as the Earth-3 version of him. Also, I happened to meet the guy I was doppelganging during a Marvel/DC crossover.
** In Deathstroke's own early 90s book there was a "long lost half-brother" named "'''Wade''' Le Farge", who showed up wanting to become Deathstroke, and take away everything that belonged to him in gruesomely irrational fashion. Although I borrowed almost as heavily from that [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker crazy-but-not-as-crazy-as-me-in-the-slightest clown]] and Spidey.
** Also, BILL! AGENT OF A.I.M.!
* CatGirl: Not me, but I do have my eyes set on one in ''Marvel Vs Capcom 3''...
-->'''Felicia''': For the last time, I don't care how much catnip you have! I'm NOT getting in your car with you!
-->'''Me''': Awww... but why not?
* CerebusSyndrome: ''The Good, The Bad, The Ugly,'' from [[MarvelNOW Posehn and Dugann]] promises to change yours truly as a character. From what I've seen far, [[TearJerker they're delivering.]]
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In one of the Joe Kelly comics, I try to make the thought of seeing Creator/BeaArthur naked sound like something a sane man ''wouldn't'' want to see!
* ChekhovsGun: Daniel Way loves to write these in my stories. In one story, I had [[spoiler:Chekhov's Exploding Chair, Chekhov's Buttloads of Cash, and Chekhov's Russian Nuclear Submarine... or is that Chekhov's [[Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome Nuclear Wessel?]]]]
* ChekhovsGunman: Oh sure Way, bring some other regenerating mercenaries who also attempt to make wisecracks. '''[[SarcasmMode I'm soooooooooooooooo sure they won't be relevant in the future!]]'''
** And you know Carmen Camacho? The hot Spanish chick I banged? Turns out she's more important than Posehn and Dugann led on...
* CloseOnTitle:
** In an issue where my eardrums get destroyed by an explosion, and then I end up fighting magical mimes, there are no words at all till the last page, and the punny title, [[spoiler:Silent But Deadly]], is the very last thing of all.
** In the last issue of Gail Simone's ''Healing Factor'' storyline, the chapter number and title appeared at the end of the story, as well as some credits and a dedication to the readers.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Sometimes I think I'm a character in a story that's written by someone. Oh wait... [[TheCuckoolanderWasRight I am]].
* CombatTentacles:
** I, a hideously deformed, twisted, lecherous, perverted, and amoral deviant freak of nature in good standing, was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WZdQD2kEk4 flagrantly]] [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 felt up]] by a [[AllAnimeIsNaughtyTentacles sexy and nubile]] [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld young]] [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Scottish woman]]! Is no [[{{Hentai}} tradition]] [[RuleThirtyFour sacred]] [[JustTheIntroductionToTheOpposites anymore]]? Thank God that game is rated T, otherwise that huge comedy yell wouldn't have been acting. Honestly Morrigan, [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy learn to aim!]]
** [[spoiler:Back when AlternateReality!Cable was taken over by techno-organics]] and sprouted loads of shiny metal tentacles. When they were attracted by my overwhelming charisma, I, naturally, went from "ow! ow! hey -- that is incredibly personal space there -- ow!!!" to "okay--hey--okay--okay--[[HoYay see, now I'm kinda liking it]]."
* ConfusionFu: My legendary fighting style, key in my victory against {{Taskmaster}}.
* ConsummateLiar: HEY! I resent that... Okay sometimes I do, and, I can be pretty good at when I need to be.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: During a climactic battle with a highly cultured German douchebag assassin known as the Black Swan, I invade the guy's home, give his guards some bad cases of dead, destroy large sections of surrounding forest, deface art that's worth millions of dollars and do everything possible to get the guy to fight me. Then when I start singing country and western songs over the PA system...
--> '''Black Swan''': "He dies! He dies SCREAMING!!!"
** [[FateWorseThanDeath That got boring pretty fast though, so I went with alternative folk rock next]].
* CoveredWithScars: Or maybe they're just tumors. Or both, even. I dunno.
* CrazyPrepared: Remember one time when I fought against bunch of Draculas in the hospital? That's right I have a Priest bless the reservoir tank 12 hours before that so I can use it to sprays holy waters against all of those Draculas. And the anti-ballistic shower curtains in my bathroom that I use to prepare myself for Black Swan's attack.
* CursedWithAwesome: One time, I insulted Comicbook/{{Loki}}, so he made me have Tom Cruise's face until I apologized. The thing was so indestructible, I nearly gave up on ever ripping it off. The fact that a side effect of an indestructible face was an indestructible body allowed me to survive an explosion that left me as the only thing remaining in one piece in the middle of a huge crater. However, Loki removed the curse immediately after I figured out how awesome this is.
** Okay, so me and {{Thanos}} [[LoveTriangle both have the hots for Death]]. The solution, considering the [[DeathOfTheHypotenuse standard approach]] kinda won't work here and the ''other'' [[ThreeWaySex standard approach]] is never gonna happen? Thanos made me ''{{immortal|ity}}''. And I thought '''''I''''' was an asshole...
* DarkAndTroubledPast: I don't wanna talk about it...
* {{Dead|panSnarker}}[[{{Pun}} pool]] [[DeadpanSnarker Snarker]]: The one and only. Everybody comments on my wit (not just other characters. During my face off with Comicbook/ThePunisher in issue #55, I said that I even get tired of my own talking).
--> "I just drone on and on. Sometimes I just don't know when to shut up. And that's why I have to kill you . . . so I can pay my phone bill!"
** In one issue, I was snatched by a DeathTrap enthusiast. I was chained down underneath a giant teddy bear [[ItMakesSenseInContext (just go with it)]], which descends lower every time I spoke and will eventually smother me. I had to break my own limbs to get out just 'cause I wouldn't shut up. At least, the bear was ''originally'' going to smother me, but because of my constant blathering, as Deathtrap put it:
--> '''Deathtrap''': Fascinating! Teddy has approached ramming speed.
* DealWithTheDevil: Back in the '80s (it was a {{retcon}}) I made a deal with a demon named Vetis to get ComicBook/IronMan to drink. How'd I get out of it? I sucker-punched Stark, stole his armor, and got drunk in it! I never did get my payment of a laser disc factory, though.
* DeathActivatedSuperpower: How I got my Spiffy [=McSpiff=] HealingFactor! Wait a minute, does this mean I'm a zombie?! No wonder I find [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Hsien-ko]] so adorable!
* DeathSeeker: Death is HOT!
* {{Deconstruction}}: So, ''you'' thought having a psychotic, immortal assassin was ''funny'', huh? ''You'' thought it would be ''funny'' for me to take on the whole Marvel Universe, right? Well, in ''Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe'', I do. I murder every single one of your beloved heroes and villains, because ''you'' thought it would be ''funny''. Well, what do you think? '''Is all this still ''funny'' to you?!'''...DontAnswerThat.
** ''Wade Wilsons War'' deconstructs my comedic insanity by [[spoiler: showing that I could really just be some lunatic out of touch with reality that has no clue what's going on, [[GainaxEnding maybe]].]]
* DependingOnTheArtist: My stunning mug has ranged from "slightly bad acne" to "pure NauseaFuel" to "oddly enough resembles [[ComicBook/FantasticFour The Thing]]." Usually I'm somewhere in between, with a somewhat [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]]-like appearance. On the other hand, my body is constantly in flux, so my appearance does change from time to time. At least, I hope that's what's happening...
** Also, a few minor but still easy to notice details of my costume keep changing. The size/shape of the black patches on my eyes, what kind of gloves/boots I have, whether I have that little tuft...thingy on the back of my mask, etc.
* DependingOnTheWriter: Eventually even me and T-Ray stopped caring about who really was Wade Wilson, so we just accepted that it depended on the writer. Also determines how crazy I am, which side of the HeelFaceRevolvingDoor I'm leaning towards that day...Much like Bender, the writers can't seem to decide whether or not I'm a JerkWithAHeartOfGold AntiHero or an AntiVillain.
* DerivativeDifferentiation: I used to just be ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}} in red, until they made me insane and gave me my own fighting style.
* {{Determinator}}: Usually I gotta tangle with opponents much more high-falutin' and edumacated than I is. Doesn't stop me from tryin'.
* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: I gave that nutcase Carnage an earful the finest illegally downloaded dubstep. And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for his meddling girlfriend.
* DontFearTheReaper: I certainly don't. Hubba hubba!
* DownerEnding: [[spoiler: ''Wade Wilson's War'' all took place in my head and Dom and I are reduced to a pair of foam-in-the-mouth paraplegics! Actually, there are some parts that are left vague and open to interpretation. [[GainaxEnding GUH! MY BRAIN!]]]]
* DreamSequence: In one issue of Priscila and Deadpool, Black Mamba used her powers to distract me by making me dream of my greatest desire -- which at the time was rubbing sunscreen on Cable's back on a sunny beach. Drinks with tiny umbrellas and WD-40 may also have been involved.
* DuctTapeForEverything: Check [[http://lafinjack.net/images/comicz/deadpool/deadpool_ducttape.jpg this]] out. Oh, there was also [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/319710.html that time]] when Cable, Comicbook/CaptainAmerica and a few others frickin' ''cocooned'' me with duct tape in an empty warehouse and left me there for hours. And to make things worse... [[CrowningMomentofFunny I had to pee]].
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Despite being one of the deadliest characters in the Marvel Universe, I get no respect from anyone.
-->'''My Little White Thought Box''': ''You once ran through Avenger's Tower butt naked. Why should they?''
* DidIJustSayThatOutLoud: I do this a ''lot'' (for all you know, this whole thing might have been transcribed from me babbling in the ear of one o' you tropers for a few hours). My internal yellow caption box monologue is often 'broken', usually without me realizing it, meaning everyone else on the page can hear what I think. Sometimes, I only think I'm doing an internal monologue, when I'm really talking. Also, I tend to have very disturbing dreams, plus a habit of sleeptalking just before I wake up, creating very embarrassing moments for everyone involved.
--> '''Me''': No, G.I.Joe, don't do that to Barbie... It's so very, '''very''', wrong... -- Uhm... I wasn't dreaming anything '''too''' embarrassing, wasn't I?\\
'''Irene''' (''staring''): No... Not by your standards, no.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: I get four symbiotes for my final fight against Carnage. [[CurbStompBattle It was so hilarious!]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: I might be a merc and an assassin for hire, but I tend to only accept contracts on really bad people (and the occasional superhero) and as the above example with the psychiatrist proves, [[PunctuatedForEmphasis "Kids. Are. Off. Limits!"]]. In fact, once, when a bunch of mercs broke me out of a jail and murdered several cops in the process, I turned on them and killed the whole lot of them.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Nate does not like it when I call him Priscilla. It's not my fault I can't keep track of all his damn names! [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109045/ He still hasn't caught up]].
* EvilAlbino: T-Ray, and Tombstone. A black one, at that.
* EvilTwin: Evil Deadpool [[RuleOfSymbolism who is made out of various limbs that I have lost over the years]].
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Hit-Monkey. A hitman who's a monkey. No, really.
* ExpressiveMask: My face moves, it moves. ... kinda creepy when you think about it.
* {{Fanboy}}: I'm a fan boy of Captain America! Did they remember the time he was possessed by some alien thing and I kicked him in the crotch to save the world though?
-->'''Me''': [[TheGreatestStoryNeverTold No one remembers but us]].
-->'''Me''': [[MythologyGag The guy who made next issue's cover]] seems to remember though.
** One time I was mashed to a pulp by ''Thor!!!'' ({{fanboy}} [[{{Squee}} squeal]])
* FanDisservice: Kind of depressing to know that even in a universe where I'm a shapely sex bomb, I'm not allowed to NOT be horribly deformed. Lady Deadpool may actually be even more offputting than me...
* {{Fanservice}}: ...unless she's wearing her mask. : ) [[spoiler:and though I'm not supposed to know it, she got her face healed during our team up in ''Deadpool Corp'', so now she's beautiful even without her mask. Well, beautiful in a "Drawn By Rob Liefeld" kinda sense.]]
* FiveManBand: I formed one after losing Cable:
** I'm TheLeader, [[CaptainObvious duh]]! They're all drawn to my charisma!
** Agent X, TheLancer
** Sandi is TheChick
** Weasel is TheSmartGuy
** Outlaw is TheBigGuy
** And HYDRA Bob fills the role of SixthRanger
* {{Flanderization}}: Some people say that my wackiness and fourth-wall breaking has been taken so far that it undercuts the violent and self-destructive psychoses inherent to my character. On the other hand, does the Marvel Universe really need another [[{{Wolverine}} Canadian with Rage Issues, Regenerating Healing Powers, and a convoluted backstory complicated by Swiss-Cheese Memory]], or [[Franchise/SpiderMan a flamboyant joke-cracker in a red costume, whose snark covers up his inner angst]]?
* FourthWallMailSlot: In my series, I've often recapped the story arc so far in the first page. And then answered my own fan mail. In said Mail Slot, I'm often accompanied by other characters from my series... who are very confused as to who they're supposed to be talking to. Their expression are worth the effort. To me, anyway. I guess you can't see them.
* FourthWallObserver: Fabian Nicieza usually makes a recap page that isn't in continuity, which means that blobs like [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} the Blob]] can break the fourth wall at will during the recap page. One recap page had Cable hinting to me that he'd infected me with subliminal messages. Since the recap page wasn't in continuity, I didn't know about the meeting, which didn't stop me from, in the story, saying these words:
--> '''Me''': Y'know, I'm really beginning to wish the recap page were part of my regular continuity, 'cause then I might have a clue...
* FrenchMaidOutfit: It [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext made just as much sense in context]], but I think I pulled it off.
* FriendToAllChildren: Hey, I'm great with interacting with children! In fact, [[VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions the Ultimate me]] is [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking available for birthday parties]]!
** Also, hurting, raping, and killing children in front of me will get the ''really'' nasty side of me [[spoiler:as Mr. Dreadpool have to find out after killing Kidpool]].
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: I get that from people a lot.
* FreudianExcuse: I SAID I DON'T WANNA TALK ABOUT IT!
* FunPersonified. And Guns Personified. But mostly fun.
* FunnySchizophrenia: Hey! That's not what schizophrenia means! Even I know that.
* FurBikini: This trope has nothing to do with me. Fun!
** [[http://johjohnfalcao.deviantart.com/art/Felicia-and-Deadpool-252558251 Except now it does]]. I'm not the one wearing it, but...
* FusionDance: Turns out the Little White Thought Box was the result of one of these between me and Madcap, another crazy regenerating guy, only with a much worse fashion sense. Who knew?
-->'''Little White Thought Box''': ''You knew. You were there, remember?''
** Yeah, but I'm pretty sure that was a retcon.
* GambitRoulette or IndyPloy: So get this: I was attacking a ship of Skrulls and Super Skrulls, then offered 'em my services, then got captured, tortured, cloned for Super Deadpool Skrulls, then convinced the scientist to let me train the Deadpool Skrulls so they can kill all the other Skrulls on the ship. Knowing that the Deadpool Skrulls were all doomed because they [[{{Irony}} they don't have cancer]], I could then steal the information. None of this was [[spoiler:Nick Fury]]'s plan, but damn it was fun.
* GenreSavvy: I'm not GenreSavvy! I'm DangerouslyGenreSavvy!
** Sometimes it becomes WrongGenreSavvy but I'm never wrong... Right?.
** ''Operation Annihilation'' has some other characters in the story being this. When I'm trying to provoke the Hulk into smashing me, he assumes somebody hired me to lure him into a trap, and still assumes that I have some trick going when I tell him nobody hired me. Some army guys that see me trying to get some children and their teacher to safety in a bus assume that I took them hostage, and later when they put their heads down and they can't see them, they assume I let them go and the I'm the only one in the bus and try to blow it up with me in it.
* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: I've saved the world on quite a number of occasions, it's just that no one was there to see them. Really.
** Wait. Is it a tropes ''aversion'' or ''subversion'' if I keep trying to tell people about it?
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: [[AvertedTrope Not really]] a ''[[BlessedWithSuck "good"]]'' thing but it helps the merc business.
* GunsAkimbo: Aw yeah! Double the guns, double the fun.
* HealingFactor: The cancer repeatedly spreading to my brain and instantly healing is the reason I'm so much saner than everyone else!
* TheHeart: I function as this in ''Uncanny X-Force''. When you got me as TheHeart, something is seriously wrong with TheTeam. I never cashed [[RichIdiotWithNoDayJob Warren's]] checks for the better part of a year!
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Sometimes I may pal around with the so-called "superheroes" if there's some big nasty that has to be dealt with, yet when I see them again because I was hired to beat the crap out of them, they complain! Considering how often most of them do the whole HeelFaceTurn thing in their own books, why are they shocked again? Hypocrisy, man. Sometimes even I don't know which side I'm on; like when I betrayed the X-Men for Cable. I ''was'' leaning a bit more towards the Face side in that series though...
* HeroWithAnFInGood: F as in fantastic! Wait, that's not what it stands for...? I mean, how could anybody pass if even copying off that geek Spidey doesn't help?
* HeroicBuild: Well gee, what do you expect?
* HeroicComedicSociopath: In my very best mood I am a hilarious comedian that uses blood and guns as my props. In my worse moments I'm paid to be an assassin and torture artist, and have personally eviscerated thousands of people for cash, kicks, and giggles. And lo, do I giggle.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: Highly ''audible'' too. [[DontExplainTheJoke 'cause I love to talk so much.]]
* IJustWantToBeLoved: Deep down, I actually want to be acknowledged and accepted by the rest of the heroes in the Marvel Universe. [[spoiler:I finally get my wish in X-Force when Evan thanks me for saving him and calls me a hero.]]
* IResembleThatRemark: I say those exact words often.
* ImageSong: My ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' theme song has managed to capture [[AntiRoleModel my essence]]: "DO THE WALK, DO THE TALK, [[HypocrisyNod DON'T BE A FOOL, GO TO SCHOOL]]."
* {{Immortality}}: On top of my HealingFactor, I'm also immortal thanks to Thanos. Since I'm made of cancer, nobody but my fans and Death love me, and I'm in love with Death, it's not all it's cracked up to be.
* ImplausibleBoardingSkills: I surf on [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright's OBJECTION! speech bubble]] in the ''Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3'' opening! In the air! With lots of debris and paper around me!
* InNameOnly:
** In the ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'', ''that guy's'' "dead pool" of mutant powers include the healing factor [[spoiler:''plus'' adamantium skeleton, [[Franchise/MortalKombat Baraka blades]], optic eye blasts and teleportation. And near the end his mouth is sewn shut because, get this, someone finally found a way to keep him quiet]]!
** The [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate]] version of Deadpool has little-to-nothing to do with my classic gorgeous self either, being little more than a grotesque (especially compared to me), [[FantasticRacism mutant-hating]] psychopath. Ulitmate 'Verse me suuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks. In fact, he's soooooo bad I had to take his place against his Spidey counterpart [[VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions during that whole dimension tear thing]] just to spare my adoring fans from rioting about how not-me-like he was! ... and [[ComicBook/DeadpoolKillsTheMarvelUniverse then I killed him]].
* [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower Insanity Is An Awesome Power]]: Guess what? It turns out that insanity is key in finding out the inner workings of Carnage's mind, making me the perfect candidate to track him down.
* InspirationallyDisadvantaged: I remind people with illnesses that they too may also be awesome one day. Not as much as me, but then again, who is?
* InterruptedCooldownHug: I ticked off a calming Hulk ''intentionally!''
* IrislessEyeMaskOfMystery: Just look at my image at the top of this page and don't tell me it doesn't make me look like the awesome BADASS I AM! Or then at least more badass than that lame [[{{Batman}} bat-costumed detective]] from a certain comic book that will be left unnamed.
* ItMakesSenseInContext:
** That time I garroted Santa Claus with a string of barbed wire. As mentioned above, my narration referred to the ordeal as "a routine assignment." And the strangling Santa incident actually isn't all ''that'' bizarre compared to some of the other things I get up to...
** Better yet: Fulfilling my childhood dream by [[ImprovisedArmour wearing raw meat as body armor]] and senselessly beating a super villain dressed like a superhero (Hawkeye, then called Bullseye) with [[EdibleBludgeon a giant ham]].
* {{Jerkass}}: Hey, I resemble that remark! Though admittedly, I ''can'' be a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, like in ''ComicBook/CableAndDeadpool'' #17.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Unlike that [[{{Wolverine}} Adamantium angstbag]] or that [[Franchise/SpiderMan whiny web-slinger]], I love what I do. I was a badass normal before getting awesome powers.
* JustifiedTrope: Believe it or not, there's an InUniverse reason for my constantly fluctuating level of sanity! Since my healing factor is out of control (my body is walking talking cancer) even my ''brain'' is rewiring itself with some regularity.
* KansasCityShuffle: My genius plan to get NormanOsborn to pay up after he stole one of my marks and ruined my rep. ''No one'' screws with my professional reputation.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Yes, they are!
* {{Kavorka|Man}}... '''[[ChickMagnet CHICK MAGNET:]]''' Aww yeah, you know it, ladies. [[DeathSeeker Lady Death]], [[ShapeShifting Vanessa]], [[{{Yandere}} Typhoid Mary]], [[HeroesWantRedHeads Siryn]], [[BettyAndVeronica Dr. Betty, Professor Veronica]], [[DistaffCounterpart Lady Deadpool]], [[MostCommonSuperpower Outlaw]], [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Morrigan]], [[CatGirl Felicia]], and the [[FanGirl millions upon millions of others]], who have succumbed to my [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons 25 Charisma stat]]. In my ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' ending, I got to mac with most of the lovely ladies at my slammin' party after wasting Galactus's purple pimply ass! Until I accidentally wiped out Cleveland... whoops!
** Guess what, guys? I GOT HITCHED! TO A DEMON PRINCESS! I guess that makes me a demon lord or something. AND EVERYONE came to the wedding. '''EVERYONE'''.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: I once paid a visit to the man by giving him a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. This man was no other than the [[AssholeVictim abusive boyfriend]] of my friend, Sandi. Though I made a promise not to kill him right there. Tasky...on the other hand, who didn't promise her anything, kills said guy anyway.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: In one ''[[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/2563277.html?#cutid1 Deadpool Team-Up]]'' arc, I go fanboy over [[Comicbook/TheMightyThor Thor]] even when he's beating me up!
-->'''Thor''': You will be handed over to the authorities. Imprisonment shall be yours. The fate of a thief.\\
'''Me''': [[EvenTheGuysWantHim I really find you very attractive.]]\\
''{{Beat}}''\\
'''Me''': [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud Did I say that out loud?]]
** Also with Comicbook/CaptainAmerica!
* LampshadeHanging: Oh, so often.
* LargeHam: What do you mean I'm an overactor?
* LawyerFriendlyCameo: A Superman/Batman special featured a snarky, motor-mouthed, katana-wielding, regenerating costumed super-hero (that's a PaletteSwap of Deathstroke) "trying" to save the life of Bruce Wayne from a bunch of assassins. A RunningGag throughout the comic is that the "mysterious hero" keeps trying to say his name, but never manages to. Did I mention that [[MyRealDaddy Joe Kelly]] wrote this annual?
* LeeroyJenkins: I should've just run in and scream outta my lungs like, '''''"WAAAAADEEEE!!! WIIIILLLLSSOOOOONNNN!!!!!"'''''. Or maybe '''''"DEAAAADDDD!!! POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLL!!!!!"'''''. Boy, I should've logged on to that server sometime.
* LessEmbarrassingTerm: After some heckling from a bystander
-->'''Bystander''': Nice scooter, freak!
-->'''Me''': It's a motorbike! It's 100% manly!
* [[LetsGetDangerous Let's Get The ]][[InsistentTerminology Doorknobs ]][[LetsGetDangerous and Unleash The Fricking Fury]]: I say with not an ounce of bragging that the best example is my showdown with Tiamat. I got so dangerous that I ''stopped talking''. Don't tell anyone, but I kinda scared myself when I thought about that.
* LethalJokeCharacter: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin You read that right kiddies]].
* LikesOlderWomen: Oh Creator/BeaArthur, my angel, my star, no man can love you like I do... I also have an on-off thing with [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Death]], but that's a bit more complicated. [[FunnyAneurysmMoment Too bad both of them are together now]]... [[GirlOnGirlIsHot or is it]]?
* LoudOfWar: I once thought Cable was going to transmit an endless loop of the Backstreet Boys. When he found out, he almost did. Later, I did the same thing to Black Swan, with country music.
* LudicrousGibs: I make these whenever I can. God, it's so fun making large amounts of body confetti fly all over the place!
* TheMadHatter: Crazy [[Series/GetSmart and loving it!]]
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: I encounter a [[FemmeFatale really pretty lady on the moon]]. [[ItMakesSenseInContext Just roll with it]].
--> '''Me''': I'll be totally upfront here. I find you really attractive. Why don't we just put our differences aside and have some dinner? Family. House. Kids.
--> [[NightmareFace She opens her mouth in a manner that is NOT for man]]. And out comes what appear to be flesh eating locusts. That charge at me and presumably begin eating my flesh. I mean, who wouldn't?
--> '''[[GratuitousFrench Moi]]''': You totally misunderstood my proposal.
* ManOfAThousandVoices: In [[VideoGame/{{Deadpool}} my game]], courtesy of NolanNorth. Granted, most of those voices are in my head.
* ManipulativeBastard:
** In one issue of the Deadpool comics, I betray my employer and [[ImAHumanitarian feed him to his zombie capturers]] -- it makes sense in context -- while double-crossing the zombies too.
--> '''Betrayed Zombie Dude''': You... betrayed us... you betrayed us all.
--> '''Me''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Duh]]! ''-kicks zombie in the head-''
** Also, in ''Deadpool'' #18, I set up an elaborate gambit to make the X-Men look good. Which was not easy; emo, as you know, is so out. Seems like Way is shaping me up to be one...
** In each "episode" of the ''5 Ronin'' maxi-series, I step in to rescue or aid my fellow ronin in their own personal adventures. [[IndyPloy I have a plan, trust me, it will work out in the end]].
* McNinja: Katanas. Acrobatics. If you ignore the "stealth" part (I do! It's boring), I am definitely a ninja. In fact, as I mention (in one of my first series' letter pages) I've undergone ''bona fide'' ninja training. Whether to believe me or not is up to you! Apparently someone at Marvel reads this page, because they went and got [[Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja some guy named Chris Hastings]] to write a miniseries for me! I went and read up on the guy and lemme tell ya, I think I'm in good hands. Here's hoping I meet the good doc.
* MediumAwareness: You know how some guys have cosmic awareness? Well I've got ''comics'' awareness!
** Seriously, am I the only person in [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 that one fighting game]] who realized there was a screen, ''saw'' the health meter, or noticed the sucky guy with the controller? Jeez, man, why does he get to sit around and I have to do the work.
** I mean, except for [[Comicbook/SheHulk that other 4th wall mutilating Marvel character]]? Seriously, [[ShoutOut somebody should make her my new co-star instead of that smelly old cyborg]]! She's a fun-loving saint [[PerverseSexualLust with tattered clothing and raging emotions, who can out-romance Tony Stark]]! I'm a fun-loving homicidal maniac who will hump AnythingThatMoves! [[FamousLastWords What could go wrong]]? I'd even keep her busy with hundreds of legal cases to solve... 'cause that's just the kind of giving guy that I am. I can imagine her response now:
--> '''Comicbook/SheHulk''': Here's a legally binding restraining order... oh, screw it. Biiig. Faaancy. Leetteer. Wiiith. Loooong. Faaancy. Wooords. Teelliing. Yooouu. Tooo. Staaay. Theee. #$%&. Awaayy. Froom. Meee. Now go away. I feel unclean just from being within a 10 mile radius of you.
** Deconstructed in "Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe", where my Medium Awareness takes a disturbing turn. The reason that version of me starts killing Marvel heroes and villains is because they aren't "Real", he thinks that because it's all fictional it doesn't matter who he kills and that they can't really feel since they aren't real.
* MetaGuy: I never hesitate to [[LampshadeHanging point out]] when things are starting to get silly (which happens quite frequently in comic books, [[SarcasmMode amazingly enough]]).
* MindScrew: I pull off an example in my Marvel Knights mini-series ''Wade Wilson's War'', with it's ambiguous ending and all.
* MixAndMatchMan: Me!
* MoralityChain: Me and Nate were yanking each other all over the place in ''Cable and Deadpool'', trying to keep each other grounded.
* MoralityPet: Siryn, Blind Al, Cable and Genesis.
* MotorMouth: I just love the sound of my own voice. I wouldn't even call it a "Motor Mouth." More like a "Nuclear-Powered Hydraulic Super Mouth."
* MostCommonSuperpower: Outlaw! She has SuperStrength, [[SubvertedTrope you pervs]]. [[DoubleSubversion Also, a great rack]].
* MultipleChoicePast: Ask three of my fans about where I came from and you'll get four different answers. Even I've given up trying to figure it out.
* TheMusical: Volume 3 Issue 49.1
* MurderTheHypotenuse: More like [[InvertedTrope Grant the Hypotenuse Immortality]]. Thanos made me immortal just so he could have Death all to himself. Jerk...
* MythologyGag: [[OldShame My Belt O'Pouches]] actually comes in handy in ''Uncanny X-Force''. [[HilariousInHindsight Wait]]. [[FlatWhat What]].
** While we're at it, [[RunningGag I'm finally an X-Man!]] Albeit a dirty, blackops X-Man in an X-Team that shouldn't even be made known of... [[TheGreatestStoryNeverTold STANDARD PROCEDURE!]]
** In the ''script that will never be made despiteallthreatstoallstudioheads'families'', I say that "a little piece of me curled up and died the day this came out" when I appear to be talking about the... ''thing'' that showed up in XMenOriginsWolverine. Okay, so it really turns out that I'm talking about a {{Wham}} album, [[TakeThat but that shit's still in the trash. Loser!]]
* NarratingThePresent: Tonight, as I inflitrate Whatever-Place-I'm-Paid-To-Inflitrate, I shall also be your host, along with the Little Yellow Box and the Little White Box, and then blow my cover because that security guard is wondering why I'm talking out loud.
* NeverHurtAnInnocent: I never harm anyone who isn't involved in my actions. This extends especially to law officers as the jerks who broke me out of prison found out.
* NeverSayDie: Yep, this happened to me once. It was in a not-exactly-canon Avengers comic aimed more toward the kiddies (ComicBook/MarvelAdventures), so I was constantly identified as "Wade Wilson, also known as--" just before the expositor got cut short by someone else. Oh, that reminds me: Kraven, you still suck.
** Also, in ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'', I was given this weird tic where I constantly say I... "[[BuffySpeak un-alive]]" people, instead of "kill".
* NinetiesAntiHero: Some people think this was my OldShame, but I was never an AntiHero in the 90's, just in my debut (my REAL OldShame for being a ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}} [[CaptainErsatz ripoff]]). I was mostly just ChaoticNeutral at my most awesome or a PunchClockVillain at my second most awesome. Also, I was funny even back then, thanks to Mr. Nicieza.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: I've faced a zombie version of me, become a pirate, and I technically dress up as a ninja. Three out of four ain't so bad... not! ''Now: to force [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards]] to make me a Robopool!'' Or [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]]. Or [[ComicBook/{{Ant-Man}} Hank Pym]]. Or the Fixer, damnit, the list goes on, there's so many people who can make friggin' robots in the Marvel Universe anyway.
* NoFourthWall:
--> "Oh, I've missed you, little yellow boxes! What ''fun'' we shall have together." [[note]]Well, that was ''before'' my yellow box got a life of its own and I got a little white box to act as "voice of reason" or something like that...[[/note]]
** In [[WebVideo/ImAMarvelAndImADC The Randomverse]], where the Fourth Wall is already in pieces, I broke it even harder. Everyone in the videos knows that we're comic book characters, but only ''I'' know I'm an action figure ''representing'' the character. And to break it UpToEleven I begin, in my yellow thought bubbles, to complain about the poor animation quality, and wonder why the creators didn't use a better editing software. As if a simple action figure can capture my awesomeness!
** It gets to the point were I'm the ''only one'' in the Marvel universe that knows about [[Comicbook/OneMoreDay Spider-Man's deal with Mephisto]]... er, besides Mephisto that is.
** And then there's me beating the snot out of people in ''VideoGame/MarvelVSCapcom3'' with my own health bar. If only the players would bother learning my game breaking awesome combos instead of relying on X-Factor, the lazy bums!
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Y'know, I keep ''trying'' to be nice, but no one seems acknowledge it. [[TheGreatestStoryNeverTold Even when they do, I don't get acceptance]]. Although there was this one time, right after I escaped from a British Mental Institute, shortly before I ran into [[EvilTwin Evil Deadpool]], where I saved a bunch of Third Worldies, I was just trying to take control of the ship so I could get back to dry land. I think I got a slightly warm fuzzy feeling when the only one who could speak English told me I was a good person. That's a start at least. And I guess [[ComicBook/{{Cable}} Nate]] did. A little.
* NoodleImplements: In ''[[VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2]]'', I suggest that Nick Fury give me [[spoiler:a poodle, a bullhorn and four nuns]] in order to distract Marvel's [[Comicbook/CaptainAmerica not-so-subtle]] [[Comicbook/IronMan lovers]].
* NoodleIncident:
** You'll never know my ultimate diss, a diss so potent it makes Marines weep and women lose function of their pancreas... [[YourMom Yo Mamageddon]].
** And we'll never know how I, ComicBook/{{Cable}}, and the Fixer ended up in St. Louis, fighting a villain who released a [[{{Squick}} diarrhetic]] over Old Busch Stadium during a Cardinals game (though I thought that was just the fifty franks he ate).
* NotSoDifferent: I can't believe that those Creator/{{Capcom}} guys honestly think that [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry some wussy named Dante]] [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 could go toe-to-toe with me]]! There's only ''one'' gunslinging, sword-wielding, snarky crimson-clad mercenary in this game, and it's definitely not [[VideoGame/DantesInferno some emo with a cross tattoo and a scythe]]! Wait, you say I'm confusing characters now?
** While different people have different opinions, personally I think they could have settled in for that [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Dan]] guy. I mean he's a rip off of [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting two characters]] of a [[Creator/{{SNK}} rival company]] that ripped Capcom off kinda like what I am, but the only difference between me and him is that I break the 4th wall, while his fighting style sucks that's ironically named ''"Saikyo"'' (That means "The Greatest" in moon words people).
* ObfuscatingInsanity: It's never really clear how much of my insanity is real and how much is an act. [[DependingOnTheWriter Different writers have different opinions on this matter]].
* ObfuscatingStupidity: It's implied, quite a bit, that my "insanity" is just my way of coping with my [[TheWoobie horrible position in life]]. Either that or I'm just a [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass downright]] [[HeroicComedicSociopath nutjob]]. But hey! [[PayEvilUntoEvil At least I killed that guy that did unGodly things your next door neighbor's 5-year-old daughter!]]
** This is also Peter Milligan's interpretation of me in ''5 Ronin''.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Little warning, if my inner voices ain't talking, i'm 100% ''not fucking around''.
* OddFriendship: With Cable. And most of my friends, really.
-->'''Cable''': And Wade, of course. [[OhCrap Our fates seem to be intertwined]]. [[DeadpanSnarker God help me]].
** Man, he can be such a dick sometimes. It really suits him.
** And with Genesis, Apocalypse's clone.
** And CaptainAmerica and Wolverine...it's getting weird to say that I even have friends.
* OnlySaneMan: You know, everyone calls me crazy, and they might have a point; on the other hand, none of them realise they are actually comic book characters, so who is ''really'' the crazy one?
* OtherMeAnnoysMe: [[Film/XMenOriginsWolverine Ryan Reynolds]], you are ''so'' lucky [[ComicBook/{{Venom}} Mr. Fangs and Drool]] stepped in when he did...
* OverlyLongGag: After being stuck in a lab tank for days, I pissed in Mr. Sinister's bathroom '''for a page and a half'''.
--> '''Me''': Anyway, he built this funky harness for when--
--> '''Mr. Sinister''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Wash your hands]].
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Even the total hug-me-mama, heavy metal emo, redundant clone of my hopelessly infatuated former sidekick OmnicidalManiac '''Stryfe''' is insanely jealous of how [[Music/KanyeWest I'm the voice of my generation]] [[OvershadowedByAwesome and more awesome than everyone and everything]]: "I call myself Chaos Bringer... but this one... this one is Chaos Incarnate." That's right. I'm Galactus, and he's my herald.
* PaintingTheMedium: In a lovely shade of narration-box yellow, with flecks of blood red, to be precise.
* ThePlan: "X Marks the Spot", looking to do somethin' heroic, I convinced Comicbook/{{Cy|clops}}ke to allow me into the X-Men as a probationary member, then went and "attempted" to kill the guy who was all over TV saying the X-Men were keeping his daughter hostage (while wearing the X-Men uniform I made myself), failed, tried again, resulting in the X-Men showing up to take me out. There, Wolverine grabbed the camera guy to film the X-Men saving The Asshole from Deadpool, including Cyclops saying I wasn't an X-Man, the little Indian giver (that was offensive to our native peoples and I apologize). Immediately after the camera stopped rolling, Wolvie, who ain't as dumb as he looks, revealed that he figured out I had set the thing up myself, all to put the X-Men back in good standing with the American Public ''and'' to get The Asshole to reveal that Osborn had paid him off to claim the X-Men had kidnapped his daughter. I called it... Operation Moves, and I did it to make X-Men realize how wrong they were for denying me entry into their ranks the ''first'' time. And to make Cyclops admit that yes, I did have some pretty good moves. Apparently, if I put this amount of thought into everything I did, I'd probably rule the world. Though who can say for sure that I haven't and don't?
* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: Bob, Agent of {{ComicBook/HYDRA}}. He never did get that limited series they pitched so hard, did he?
* PopularityPower: I've been on the bad end of this, with ''ThePunisher'' was beating me a '''SWORD''' even though I have a ton more practice with those then him and my HealingFactor should make sword wounds meaningless.
* ProfessionalKiller: Obviously. But [[CaptainOblivious the]] [[{{Hobos}} D-Man]] is the best at what he does, [[MoneyDearBoy and what he does depends on how much money you can pay up front]].
* PsychicStatic: For some reason, people have trouble using telepathic attacks on me. It must be because I have loads of HeroicWillpower, and [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial not because]] [[PowerBornOfMadness I'm mentally unstable or anything]].
* PsychoForHire: I resent that! I'm not a psycho! I've been going to therapy... until the therapist tragically died. 'Cause [[BlackComedy I killed him]].
* PsychopathicManchild: Hey! Just 'cause [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 I shout Internet memes after fighting Magneto]] does not make me childish!
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: Must... use... [[Franchise/StarTrek Shatner]]... voice... to... reach... STATUE!!!
** Though, i admit, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness when my little inner voice friends ain't around, i do tend to use this more seriously.]]. Just ask [[spoiler: That one psychologist pedophile piece of shit i killed.]]
--> '''Me''': Sit. ''The fuck.'' '''DOWN.'''
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech
** In the early days of ''Cable and Deadpool'', Cable handed one to me. He can be so hurtful sometimes. But while he could tear me apart on the molecular level by blinking, [[ShutUpHannibal he doesn't hold a candle to me when it comes to wordslingin']].
** Zombie Abe Lincoln gives me one of the these summing up why everyone in the Marvel Universe hates me. I give the appropriate answer.
--->'''Zombie Abe''': [After giving me a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown] You're a vapid, unfunny, pale shade of a hero. You're unintelligent, uncreative, and unremarkable in every way. You don't seem to do anything well except heal yourself and appear ''everywhere''! I don't understand your appeal. I hate you. These people hate you. Tell me. What is it that you're good at? What do you do. [...] What way are you ''exceptional''?
--->[[ShutUpHannibal '''Me''': '''I DON'T GIVE UP!''']]
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: My red suit with black stripes and matching red and black hood.
* RedemptionDemotion: Averted. [[RedemptionPromotion If anything, I became even more awesome once I kinda, sorta turned into somewhat of a good guy]]. They didn't even let me have a HealingFactor in my early days of being [[MonsterOfTheWeek Villain Of The Month]]. Go read my second appearance where I'm all bitchy because my jaw was wired shut after some guy in Weapon X broke it. On second thought... [[OldShame don't]].
* RedOniBlueOni: My two head voices themselves. It varies, but usually the voice with a white speech box is the blue oni, to the voice with the yellow speech box's red oni.
* {{Retcon}}: My past is very colorful, but Marvel made it so that whatever backstory ''Deadpool: Origins'' has becomes canon. Then again as I have mentioned in the comics, my origin depends on the writer, so I stopped caring. MultipleChoicePast and all that.
* RiddleForTheAges: So am I actually Wade Wilson or what? Is T-Ray actually Wade Wilson? Does Wade Wilson even ''exist''? [[MultipleChoicePast Who]] [[DependingOnTheWriter knows...]]
* RipVanTinkle: After being cocooned in Duct Tape by other Marvel Heroes to keep me out of the picture, I quickly commented that I needed to pee. Upon being freed I went to the bathroom for a whole page.
* Creator/RobLiefeld: My most famous co-creator. My ''dad'', if you will. And I guess Fabian Nicieza [[HasTwoMommies is my mom or other dad or something?]] Talk about your screwed-up parents. While 'Pouches O'Plenty' still pops in to draw an issue or a cover, I'm all for breaking ties with the guy. Instead, Joe Kelly and Creator/GailSimone [[MyRealDaddy are the people who most of the fans consider my real parents]]. Would that mean I have four parents, then? Wow, maybe that's [[FreudianExcuse why I turned out this way]].
* RuleOfFunny: [[ChaoticNeutral Rules aren't usually my thing]], but I like this one.
* RunningGag: "You're not a mutant! ...and you're not an X-Man!"
* SadClown: [[DependingOnTheWriter Some writers portray me this way]].
* TheScrappy: InUniverse, folks! Most people can't stand to be around me.
* TheScream: I love screaming, and I'll never miss the chance for one. Especially [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl like a little girl!]] Here, listen on this one I recorded in tape when I met Sabretooth...
-->'''Sabretooth''': Scream for me.\\
'''Me''': Scream? Well, if you insist. AAAAAHHH!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, AAAAAHHH!!! AAAAAHHH!!!\\
'''Sabretooth''': Enough, Wilson.\\
'''Me''': No wait -- Now I'll do it like a little girl: eeek! eeek! eeek!
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Sometimes I'm bad for money, sometimes I'm good for money. As long as I'm having fun with said money, I make my own rules!
* ShapeshiftingSquick: Ah [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/marveldatabase/images/thumb/b/b3/Copycat233.jpg/200px-Copycat233.jpg Vanessa]], the great love of my life and best thing that ever happened to me. Too bad that a woman who kept turning into any wet dream in my demented mind was too sexistic to be allowed to exist. At least we got through quite a few Marvel heroines before she was killed off.
* ShipTease: The fangirls love to ship me with Spider-Man, and Deadpool Annual #2, a comic in which I help Spidey out when he's in a jam, is actually called ''Spideypool." [[{{Idiosyncratic Ship Naming}} This is the most common name for our ship.]]
* ShootingSuperman: People will try to shoot me even though it never works. Some army guys in ''Operation Annihilation'' that saw I provoked the Hulk were at least GenreSavvy enough to know shooting him was dumb idea, so they decided to try and shoot me instead thinking if I'm dead, Hulk will stop.
* {{Sidekick}}: Bob, hapless, captured [[{{Mooks}} agent]] of HYDRA!
* SitcomArchNemesis: '''[[SayMyName SQUIRREL-GIRLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!]]'''
* SelfDeprecation: No, no, ''I'' never do this, but it seems for some strange reason, I always have the job of dealing with some of the lamest bad guys ever conceived. You know, the folks you tend to read about and say, "Who is this loser? What on Earth was the writer thinking?" You know, guys like [[Comicbook/HowardTheDuck Doctor Bong]], the [[Franchise/SpiderMan Murderous Mimes]], and [[Comicbook/SpiderWoman Turner D. Century]]. (I heard this used to be Scourge's job, but ''that'' guy was ''just'' as lame.)
* SmallNameBigEgo: How dare you! I completely live up to my ego. My name is so big Wolverine is jealous of it.
* SmugSnake: Weasel.
* [[HitMeDammit Snikt Me, Dammit!]]: I spent the better part of an issue trying to get {{Wolverine}} to stab me. But he was being a wuss, so I [[{{Shoryuken}} Shoryuken'd]] Kitty Pryde instead. That worked. Also, for me to unleash the fury of [[PowerLevel my Level 3 special]] in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', people have to hit me whilst I am doing a SexyWalk.
* SuperSpeed: Okay, so maybe it isn't one of my [[NoFourthWall official powers]], but it darn well oughta be. I mean, I can outrun a friggin' ''[[http://i082.radikal.ru/0909/d5/77f59eab6e86.jpg jetliner]]'' fer Bea Arthur's sake!
* StalkerWithACrush: Dr. Ella Whitby, she's obsessed with me and she even has a fridge full of all the body parts I've lost over the years. She's creepy, even by my standards.
* TheStarscream: Occasionally Weasel.
* StupidSexyFlanders: Stupid Sexy ComicBook/{{Cable}}! And Stupid Sexy [[Comicbook/TheMightyThor Thor]]. And Stupid Sexy [[PhantomThief The Cat]]. And Stupid Sexy CaptainAmerica. [[OverlyLongGag Et cetera]].
-->'''Thor''': You will be handed over to the authorities. Imprisonment shall be yours. The fate of a thief.
-->'''Me''': I really happen to find you very attractive.
-->'''Thor''': ...
-->'''Me''': DidIJustSayThatOutLoud.
* TalkativeLoon: I'm narrating my own trope page, do I ''really'' have to explain this one?
* TalkingInYourSleep: People tell me I say some pretty weird stuff in my sleep sometimes. I say some pretty weird stuff when I'm awake, so I s'pose it's a given.
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Natch. My lung capacity cannot be matched. [[TheChick Domino]] notes my endless, inane banter is actually my most dangerous ability, since most opponents are too distracted to pay attention to my moves. Just... as... plotted.
* TakeOurWordForIt:
** [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/588052.html In one issue]], I was hired to kill a man by an old girlfriend whom he spread a rumor about. The rumor is so terrible, even Bullseye wanted the guy dead. Even ''the man whose house I broke into'' to kill said Pizza Guy agreed. He went from "You can't just come into my house and kill a guy", to "Dude, you so have to pay for what you did" after being told what happened.
** In ''Amazing Spider-Man'' #611, I let slip that I have the "Yo Mammageddon", which reduced a Marine to tears, and ruptured a girl's pancreas.
* TakeThat:
** When I had to train a bunch of Super Skrulls that managed to get my power set and costume, one comments on why they have to have [[TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks so many pouches on them]]. I remark, oh so sarcastically, about them being useful, turn to the reader and say "Isn't that right, Creator/{{Rob|Liefeld}}?"
** In my first ongoing series, a pair of old ladies who hire me to take out a human Road Runner give me a giant, complicated gun called "The Liefelder."
** [[http://imgur.com/PqHXc I even made fun of]] [[Comicbook/ChickTracts Jack Chick]]. Can't decide which of them deserve my ribbings more, tho'.
** Oh, and you guys shouldn't feel left out either. As Way had me mention the other day: "There is nobody I hate more than my friends." I liked [[Creator/MarxBrothers "I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member"]] better though.
** Also, there's that leaked Internet script of my '''EXTRA FANTASTIC''' film which will never happen because of suits I need to kill. I have an action figure of Dudepeel in the trash as I apparently moan about it. PSYCHE, I was moaning about WHAM'S 'Music From the Edge of Heaven' LP, which I then throw on top of Barakapool. ''ZING!''
** What do I do when somebody compliments the prequel Star Wars trilogy? I blow up their fucking head, that's what!
** When [[DCComics the other side]] got themselves a whole bunch of [[RatingsStunt awesome]] 3D covers, I figured [[http://comicsalliance.com/deadpool-3d-motion-cover-variant-marvel-dc-new-52/ I'd join in the fun too!]]
* TalkingToThemself: Because I like to talk to interesting people! A particularly amusing one is on ''VideoGame/XMenLegends II'', where I can fight a BossBattle with myself, and we argue on who's the true Deadpool!
* TeamPet: Bob, agent of HYDRA!
* TechnicolorNinjas: Bright red ninja, to be specific. I think it [[{{Pun}} suits]] me.
* TheyFightCrime: This is the point of the ''Deadpool Team-Up'' series, as it gives inferior heroes ADayInTheLimelight with everyone's favorite mercenary, by which I mean me, by which I mean no one other than me, by which I mean not you.
* {{Trick Arrow}}s: Yeah, I made 'em when I teamed up with {{ComicBook/Hawkeye}} to kill a bunch of pirates. [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny They all are Hulk Hands toys the kids don't play with nowadays]]. [[spoiler:The trick, [[StuffBlowingUp they all explode!]]]] The person who written this story also was the same guy who made those internet comics about [[{{WebComic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja}} that doctor who happens to also be a ninja]], [[BlatantLies just like me!]]
* TooKinkyToTorture: Once, while on a job for X-Force, I was caught by Apocalypse's goons who then proceeded to tie me up just so I could regale them with a my stunning rendition of [[Music/GloriaEstefan Miami Sound Machine]]'s ''Conga''.
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: Galactus fired me because I was just too ''awesome'' for him to handle. It's [[BlatantLies definitely not]] because he wanted me to [[MotorMouth shut up]]. Then there was the time I was captured to be zombiefood. I tasted like cancer. And the time when I travelled to alternate universe and got infected by the Techno-Organic virus and almost [[TheAssimilator assimilated]] by the HiveMind of the virus... let's just say the result is not nice.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: I'm crazy for Tex-Mex, like tacos, burritos, and chimichangas. Sometimes I just like saying the word "Chimichanga" more than eating eating them...almost....
* TrashTalk: I had a "YourMom" fight with Spidey in ''Amazing Spider-Man'' #611. It was fun! [[TheUnreveal Even though I]] ''[[TheUnreveal almost]]'' [[TheUnreveal missed my chance to use Yo Mammageddon]].
* TheTrickster: I'm an insane mercernary, so I'm doing odd things and disrepecting authority, but cops are okay, provided they're not trying to arrest me.
* TriggerHappy: I like killing in general, but I LOVE ME SOME GUN!
* TwistEnding: ARE YOU READY GUYS? THIS IS HUGE. [[spoiler: In Joe Kelly's original run, I'M NOT EVEN WADE WILSON. I just killed a random guy in his house and took over his identity! I wasn't even a good guy to begin with! But Marvel retconned this story (back in my fight with T-Ray in ''Cable and Deadpool''), so now apparently the Deadpool: Origins comic is the canon one]].
* UltimateMarvel: Here are some tropes that apply to my Ultimate self:
** {{Expy}}: Step 1: Copy everything about [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Pierce Donald Pierce]]. Step 2: Give him my wardrobe and change his name to Deadpool without changing anything else about him. Step 3: ??? Step 4: Profit!
** FantasticRacism: OK, Ultimate Marvel guys, we get it! Everything has to be DarkerAndEdgier than good ol' Earth 616! But aren't I Grim-n-Gritty enough to begin with? No need to make Ultimate Me an evil, mutant-killing bigot...
** InNameOnly: Aside from the name and the costume, Ultimate Me isn't that much like [[WhichMe Me-Me]] at all.
** AxCrazy: HOLY SHIT! This guy rivals me the me from ''DeadpoolKillsTheMarvelUniverse'' in terms of how violent he is.
*** Except in ''VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions'' where PeterDavid makes Ultimate me into the lovable merc you all love.
* UnreliableNarrator: Hey! I resemble that remark! Seriously, now, who are you gonna trust? Me... or ''reality''? I bet reality doesn't have sweet guns like these...
* UselessAccessory: I almost never use all those pouches of mine. Although when I do, they have contained awesome action figures (of me), wallet, keys, and (on one occasion) a pancreas. Logic doesn't exactly work on me.
* VillainProtagonist: I bounce back and forth between this and HeroicComedicSociopath. Like a gun-toting pinball, really. Sometimes within the same issue!
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Absolutely not. But ''outside'' the comic, [[WolverinePublicity is a completely different story]].
* VitriolicBestBuds: With, everybody. No matter how many fights I get in, I'm SURE that everybody loves me.
* WhatTheHellHero: I call out [[spoiler: Captain America and Wolverine for not taking me seriously when I approached them about someone chasing after me with an interest in Weapon X. I do so because in the end they killed the family I didn't think I had.]]
* WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys: I call the Punisher out on it during Suicide Kings. Since, you know, the previous day he tried to strangle me and electrocute my ass... with ''mecha-frickin'-tentacles''.
-->'''Me''': What you got today, Punisher. The Beetle's wings? Plant-Man's chloro-blaster gun? One of the Porcupine's quills?
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Turns out to be what I've been obsessing about in the Daniel Way arc.
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Clowns?:]] WHERE? Okay, don't scare me like that! Seriously, the only greater threat to this planet than those guys is Galactus! Don't believe me? Well, hope I never have to say "I told you so"...
* WildCard: I mean, that's half my reason for livin'.
* WolverinePublicity: To put it simply, starting in 2008, I've kicked good ol' Wolverine off his title as Marvel's Poster Child.
** Just because this has to be on the Internet somewhere: The Poster Child succession has been thus -- Captain America (1940s/50s) < The Fantastic Four (1960s) < Spider-Man (1970s) < Wolverine (1980s/90s) < Deadpool (current)
*** Interestingly, this corresponds to TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks, TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks, TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks, TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks, and TheModernAgeOfComicBooks. However, Wolverine still hasn't fully left the spot and TheHood is also trying to claim the position, and Anti-Venom... yeah. It's like the pro wrestlers say: the belt might as well be a target.
** And lately I've been having to divide readers' attention with Comicbook/IronMan. Just because of [[Film/IronMan the movies]] [[Film/TheAvengers where he appears]]. I ''seriously'' need to go talk to Ryan Reynolds to get my own movie off the ground...
** As to the actual namesake of the trope, fortunately, we all know my video game is all about fabulous me, so it will feature [[http://cdn.destructoid.com//ul/254807-/4284Deadpool_Wolverine_PEGI-noscale.jpg none of those shenani--]] wait, what? Oh, ''come on!''
* WordOfGay: Wait...what? You mean...there were people who had to be ''told'' I swing in more directions than a Swingball set? I mean, I'm not exactly the king of subtlety here! Pay attention people!
* WouldHitAGirl: Hey ladies, you want equality right? Guess what, I'm all for it. Shadowcat will tell you just how much I support feminism! [[note]]Glad to see that you're all suggesting her as DLC in ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3''. I'll let her know about it the next time I see her, probably before I knock her unconscious.[[/note]]
* WouldntHurtAChild: Go right ahead. Hurt that kid. I've been sharpening my katanas all morning and I'm eager to try out a new method of torture I've been reading about that involves scalping.
** And since we're on the subject, ''Deadpool Kills Deadpool'' is gonna be sweet. That version of me's gonna PAY for killing the Comicbook/PowerPack...[[spoiler: and ESPECIALLY Kidpool.]]
** I also chewed out my former Uncanny X-Force colleague Fantomex for snuffing out Kid Apocalypse. [[spoiler: Unbeknown to me and the rest of the team at the time, he made a clone of the kid.]]
* YouBastard: In ''Deadpool'' #900. I realize that [[spoiler:[[PopularityPower I would never really die because the fans like me too much]]. So I decide to [[KillEmAll kill all my fans]]]]. [[EnsembleDarkhorse I didn't realize how hard that would be]]. [[DeadpoolKillsTheMarvelUniverse Oh, then I kill the Marvel universe]] 'cause, in the real world, I'd be considered crazy and disturbing, and this comic's supposed to make you ''suck it''. Go figure.
* YourHeadAsplode: Nate did this to me with his uber psychic powers. Twice. I was not amused.
* YoureInsane: I get that a lot. I don't even really care anymore.
* YourMom: Again, Mamageddon, my ultimate diss!
