* EnsembleDarkhorse: Though only because he's not quite made the transition onto BreakoutCharacter. Tasky is rather popular with fans, and has a large following himself, but he's never been exposed much. ''MarvelVsCapcom3'' and ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'' are his only outside media and he's never had an ongoing, despite positive reception to his various miniseries' and guest appearances. When ''SecretAvengers'' was announced as being rebooted for MarvelNow!, Taskmaster was probably the most well received of the characters listed.
** To wit, when he appeared as a character players could unlock in a tournament for another character ''(Rocket Racoon)'' in VideoGame/MarvelAvengersAlliance, many of the players competed just to get Taskmaster.
* MemeticMutation: Taskmaster's short lived Udon-Designed costume, which resembles a blue/purple hoody and a hokey mask, and is a rather popular design. Considering the number of custom figures made of it, and the fact that he's often drawn in this outfit, for some who hear about the character before reading him in a comic, it comes as a surprise to know he only wore it for a short while, unfortunately.
* TearJerker: He wanted to fight Finesse (who is possibly his daughter) in the hope of being able to remember her, as fighting skills are the only things he can remember.
** He's very worried about [[spoiler: Mockingbird]] while they try to escape from AIM Island and wonders what was done to her while AIM had her, and is noticably shocked and sad when he is told that she's dead. [[spoiler: He's then shot in the head by a figure who is revealed to be Mockingbird.]]
* TrueNeutral: Taskmaster will work for HYDRA one moment and ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} the next - his only loyalty is to the one paying him.
** Seemed to be changing when [[spoiler: despite MODOK's expectations, Taskmaster genuinely joined SHIELD's side, and seems to have liked Mockingbird.]]
