[[caption-width-right:340:"This is what awesome looks like." - the man himself]]

''Deadpool'' is a 2013 action game developed by High Moon Studios, previously known for their [[VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron Transformers]] [[VideoGame/TransformersFallOfCybertron games]]. The game stars SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}, seeking revenge on Mister Sinister after a botched contract gone wrong. The game was initially announced at the 2012 Comic-Con to great praise, and was released on June 25th, 2013 in America (June 27th in Europe). Creator/NolanNorth once again voices the Merc with a Mouth.

The game opened to mixed reviews- many outlets praised Creator/NolanNorth and the humor of the game, but the gameplay was less well received. Apparently shooting, stabbing and slashing isn't considered fun by some people. Heh, what do ''they'' know?

Due to licensing issues, Marvel messed up the licensing deal, both this game and ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' were out of print for a time. However, this game was eventually put on Steam and [[http://www.digitalspy.com/gaming/news/a666244/activisions-deadpool-will-be-breaking-the-fourth-wall-on-xbox-one-and-ps4-in-november.html?rss#~pn3IMKsutIvxsx came to Xbox One and PS4 November 2015]].

----
!!This game provides examples of:

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: Right off the bat during the tutorial, [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Deadpool with the reasoning that killing stuff in shallow realistic sewers just isn't any fun.
* ActuallyADoomBot: The first two times Deadpool kills Sinister, Cable tells him that those were clones (and he had a dozen in reserve for the end fight), but Cable confirms he got the real one at the end.
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Death in this game is shown as having skin, while she's usually (but not always) a skeletal figure in the comics.
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: [[spoiler: Thanks to a convenient face-sucking session with Rogue, she ends up stealing Deadpool's voices, katanas, mask AND starring role!]]
* AndThisIsFor: High Moon knew about this little crowd-pleaser from ''ComicBook/CableAndDeadpool'' so he performs this on Wolverine.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Not in that order, but to get Deadpool to go after Sinister when he's thinking about Samantha and her great tacos, Cable says that if he doesn't stop Sinister's EvilPlan, he'll kill Samantha, [[AndThatsTerrible destroy all her tacos]], and everyone on Earth.
* ArtShift: The game changes into an eight-bit parody early on, complete with noisy sprites.
* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: Scratching one's junk with a gun isn't the best idea, but even if Deadpool '''did''' shoot them off, he can always just grow another pair, so it's safe to say proper gun handling isn't high on his priority list.
* AscendedMeme: There's a few references made to the misadventures of Deadpool scattered across the game. For example, while squaring off with minions while on the hunt for Chance, Deadpool brings up his "fighty time" quote.
* AttackAttackAttack: [[spoiler: During the brief time that you play as Rogue, the teleport/counter button instead performs a horizontal slash, rendering the player unable to do anything but attack.]]
* BackFromTheDead: Deadpool kills all three of the Marauders (Arclight, Vertigo, and Blockbuster) in the first half of the game, only for them to spontaneously reappear just before the final boss fight. Given that most of the enemies are clones, it's pretty much hand-waved.
* BadFuture: Cable comes from one- Deadpool gets sick very quickly of Cable talking about it.
* {{BFG}}: Cable carries one that's almost as long as he is tall, and he won't let Deadpool use it, claiming it's too heavy. Some {{giant mook}}s also carry them, either in the form of [[GatlingGood chain guns]] or rocket launchers, and they too are particularly heavy; they actually slow Deadpool down when he uses them.
* BigBad: Mister Sinister, or Captain Douche as Deadpool refers to him as.
* BladeSpam: Many of the Momentum attacks are this.
* BondOneLiner: '''Tons''' of them; this is Deadpool, after all.
-->Aaaand CUT! Moving on!\\
Two extra slices for just 9.99!\\
Yeah-heh, you're gonna want to have a doctor take a look at that.\\
I know I said "just the tip"... But come on!
* BookDumb: The voices try to help Deadpool figure out how much C4 to use to bust down a door... but in his words, "[[PrecisionFStrike Fuck]] math, just use all of it!"
* BoringButPractical: Vertigo's mutant power is the ability to make people dizzy. Deadpool mocks her for it, but he ends up succumbing to her powers before the segment is done.
* BossRush / WolfpackBoss: The last two boss fights of the game are- respectively- all three Marauders simultaneously and then several clones of Mr. Sinister all at once.
* BrickJoke: Seriously, roll credits.
* ButThouMust: At one point you have to stealth-kill Mr. Sinister by sneaking up to him and pressing a button. The wording of the prompt changes if you wait. The prompt changes to "have fun/don't have fun" and finally "stab Sinister/stab Sinister."
* CartoonPhysics: Deadpool traverses a gap using his thought bubbles as platforms.
* CasualDangerDialogue: Deadpool will quip in the middle of fights constantly. Justified, due to his healing factor and the fact he can't really die. Cable does this a little bit, but his quips are usually along the lines of "DAMN IT, WADE!"
* CensorBox: While playing in Deadpool's apartment you can make Deadpool use the bathroom. Deadpool climbs on the toilet, a censor bar appears, and he grabs the bar and stretches it out to make it look like his penis is the height of a man.
* ChekhovsGun: Deadpool's dog goes flying off in the Sentinel Boot that Deadpool rigged up for flight. [[spoiler:He ends up squashing Mr. Sinister with it.]]
* CharacterAsHimself: Only natural, with Deadpool always being aware of what medium he's in.
* CListFodder: Lampshaded by Deadpool that the villains of the game are the D-List Marvel baddies The Marauders.
* CloningBlues: Deadpool gets tired of fighting clones by the end of the game, and quips that the next Mr. Sinister they fight better be the real one.
--> That joke's getting old, even for High Moon!
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Deadpool periodically sees things that aren't really there; most commonly bikini-clad fan girls. He also comes off this way to all of the other characters, talking about the player and game design.
* ClusterFBomb: If there's one thing Deadpool spreads as well as blood, it's profanity.
** Also, the optional song that appears when Cable arrives:
-->Who the fuck is that? (He's the man outta time)\\
Who the fuck is that? (He likes to fight crime)\\
Who the fuck is that? (We hang out with 'Pool)\\
Who the fuck is that? (But he ain't a fool)\\
It's fuckin' Cable!
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Wall jump surfaces have a nice green tint, making them easy to find.
* TheComicallySerious: Cable. He knows Deadpool well enough to bribe him with Tacos or the promise of a naked fan-girl to do what he needs. Also, when Deadpool shoots himself in the head to get out of a conversation with Cable, Cable just pins a note to him using a knife stuck in his chest.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Deadpool constantly ignores the plot of the game involving the X-Men and any plan Mr. Sinister has to go do his own thing. The X-Men and Cable run around trying to save the world while Deadpool- and the player- more or less just screws around.
** When trying to blast into a safe room with C4, White Box suggests using 20 ounces of C4, and the Yellow Box expresses his hate for the metric system and wanting to use the American system. Ounces ''are'' the American system.
* ContractualGenreBlindness: Despite being a FourthWallObserver and possessing the game's script, Deadpool is completely unaware of various plot twists in the game.
* CoolGun: Pulse rifles are present. Like the other guns, they can be {{dual wield|ing}}ed.
** Cable carries a giant futuristic gun that he won't let Deadpool use.
* CrazyPrepared: Deadpool rigs up High Moon's HQ with explosives on the off chance they don't feel like making his game. He also brings a bouncy castle to act as a cushion when he jumps out a window of a skyscraper.
* DeathFromAbove: One of the enemies can fly and sends storms of lightning and hail raining down as his primary attack.
** At one point Deadpool has Cabble rig a Sentinel boot for flight, which he uses to stomp on enemies.
** Mr Shuggums finds the Sentinel boot [[spoiler: and steps on the real Sinister with it.]]
* DistressedDamsel: Rogue gets captured, tortured, and nearly killed by Blockbuster, but Deadpool only goes to save her because he thinks that she'll fall in love with him.
* DoubleJump: Present and lampshaded as being against the laws of physics, but so token for video games that it's present anyway.
* DrivenToSuicide: In the middle of Cable informing Deadpool of the state of affairs in the future, he can barely get a sentence out before losing Deadpool's attention thanks to how boring he finds it. He eventually just decides to put a bullet in his head.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Deadpool casually shoots Vertigo in the face without even looking at her the first time she dies. When you encounter her with the other Marauders later, she again goes down with very little gunfire.
* DropTheHammer: Deadpool has a pair of sledgehammers that you can use for the typical slow-but-powerful melee weapons.
* DualWielding: All of the basic weapons; both guns and melee.
** ReverseGrip: Deadpool holds one of his katanas this way.
* EffortlessAchievement: You get one just for starting the game, Deadpool lampshades it, and then another one pops up. The achievements are titled "The First One's Free" and "The Second One's Also Free"
* ExcusePlot: Deadpool only goes after Chance at the beginning of the game because- quite literally- the game's script says so. He only goes after Mr. Sinister because he's pissed Sinister killed his contract and he wants payback.
** It becomes a running joke where it's clear there's a very serious plot going on with the X-Men being depowered and Sinister exhuming very powerful mutant corpses to harvest their DNA, and so on- but because we're seeing the plot through Deadpool's eyes and Deadpool doesn't care about any of that, the plot is pretty much just "Kill Mr. Sinister for revenge".
* ExplodingBarrels: Present and lampshaded; there's even a machine that spits them out at one point.
* [[DrivesLikeCrazy Flies Like Crazy]]: Deadpool actually gets a chance to fly the Blackbird like he always wanted... he immediately crashes the plane and knocks out all of the X-Men that came with him. Especially humorous in that we get a brief look in the cockpit and Wolverine is choking out Deadpool as he flies.
* FourthWallObserver: Deadpool, as per usual.
* FramingDevice: The game begins with Deadpool "negotiating" with High Moon Studios to make a video game about him. Deadpool talks aloud to himself about various aspects of game design through the game and he at one point freaks out when he comes across a room that hasn't been fully coded.
* FreezeFrameBonus:
** Observant players will notice that while Deadpool's rewriting the script High Moon sent him, the script somehow has exactly what he and his thought boxes are saying.
** On the scene where Deadpool is about to ([[SuicideAsComedy and eventually does]]) kill himself from boredom, Cable is trying to seduce him in the distorted background audio.
* GameOverMan: Deadpool actually plays this role for himself.
-->''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Don't. Do that. Again.]]''
-->''Ah, I was bored anyway.''
-->''Ouch? ...dipshit.''
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Lampshaded by Deadpool: his teleportation device is much more powerful in the comics, but was nerfed for balancing in the game.
** Deadpool's healing factor has been seriously toned down too; otherwise the player would be pretty much immortal.
* GatlingGood: You briefly man a minigun while Deadpool hijacks a helicopter in the first level; plus some of the enemies drop giant ice-projectile miniguns.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Mr. White is an extremely generic villain with almost no backstory or motivation given; Deapool lampshades how he's just a basic easy-to-hate bad guy. Mr. Sinister fills out this role after White snuffs it.
* GiantMook: The {{BFG}} wielding {{mooks}} are these. Some of the SuperPoweredMooks are pretty big too.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Deadpool comes across a machine that spits out exploding barrels, then uses the machine until its coding breaks and it fades from existence. The machine shows up later as a boss!
* GoodBadGirl: When Rogue absorbs Deadpool's healing factor, she also gains his slutty personality.
* {{Gorn}}: There is a LOT of gratuitous blood when enemies die.
* GratuitousJapanese: "Yatta" and "Ikouze" count as gratuitous, right?
* GroinAttack: [[spoiler: Deadpool kicks Mr. Sinister in the crotch to stun him as the flying Sentinel boot comes down on him.]]
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: Happens after rescuing Rogue- Deadpool gets separated from his legs, and then his top half lands on a hapless soldier below him.
* HealingFactor: Deadpool's primary power- he uses it in mundane and gratuitous ways, like committing suicide to get out of a conversation with Cable.
* HehHehYouSaidX: Yellow Box does that a lot.
--> '''Cute-but-easily-frightened-High-Moon-employee:''' H-hello, sir. I have a package...
--> '''Me:''' So do I. Yoink! ''(slam the door in the poor girl's face)''
--> '''Yellow Box:''' Hee-hee! "Package"...
* HelpingWouldBeKillStealing: Deadpool actively avoids getting help from any of the X-Men because he doesn't want to share his game.
* HeyCatch: Deadpool's futuristic laser weapons have fingerprint scanners- he takes advantage of this by throwing one of the guns to an enemy and challenging him to a shootout.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: There is virtually no cover in any of the stealth sections; yet Deadpool will only be spotted if an enemy looks ''directly'' at him.
* HulkSpeak: DEADPOOL SMASH!
* ImagineSpot: At least twice Deadpool hallucinates women in bikinis.
* ImmuneToDrugs: You can force Deadpool to drink beers in his apartment; after five he'll remind you that he can't get drunk because of his healing factor.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: Both me and Arclight. Too bad for her she doesn't have a healing factor, although she does have a nice pair of titties, almost didn't notice I was busy being penetrated by a huge rod thanks to them!]]
* InLoveWithYourCarnage: [[spoiler: Rogue seems to get... ''into'' the carnage during the brief stretch where you play as her.]]
* IntimateHealing: Rogue gets gravely injured and needs to touch Deadpool to absorb his healing factor. Deadpool naturally decides the best way to do this is with a make-out session.
* InterfaceScrew: At one point in the game Deapool's head gets reattached to his body backwards, reversing the player's controls until he can reattach it correctly. Also, Vertigo's powers cover the screen in a strange green wave effect, but the effect on the controls is minimal.
* InevitableWaterfall: Double subverted. When Deadpool and Death are on a mock tunnel of love ride, Deadpool freaks out when he sees a waterfall ahead. It turns out only to be a small drop... only to be followed by an actual waterfall.
* ItWasADarkAndStormyNight: The script Deadpool initially receives for the game reads like this. Deadpool is not pleased.
* JustifiedTutorial: Well, justified for you, maybe. I know what I'm doing...but then again, this is a new medium for me, so I guess I should maybe pay attention. HA! No.
* JigglePhysics: Pretty much every single female character.
* JigsawPuzzlePlot: The plot of the game involves Mr. Sinister hijacking satellites, knocking out the X-Men, and exhuming the corpses of powerful mutants to harvest their DNA, but because the story is told through Deadpool's perspective- and Deadpool couldn't care less about the plot- the story is mostly about Deadpool dicking around while chunks of the actual story are presented and ignored.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Well ''duh''. They ain't as fast as my sais, or as strong as my hammers, but they're the best of both worlds. Or the average of both worlds, I guess.
* KillItWithFire: Seems like High Moon didn't think all those dismemberments and awesome acrobatics from yours truly were enough, so they decided that when I hit dudes hard enough, flames shoot out of my weapons and the ground temporarily turns into magma. Doesn't really make much sense, but I sure as hell ain't complaining!
* KillSteal: Seriously, what the hell, Sinister?!
* LampshadeHanging: Those imaginary girls sure were insightful. Not that I would know, considering I fell asleep while they were talking:
-->'''Girl 1''': "Oh my god, this conversation is like sooo cliche."\\
'''Girl 2''': "I know, right? It's almost like we were specifically written with female character tropes in mind. It's almost painful blah blah blah *incomprehensible muttering*.
** Alongside that, I lampshade plenty of objects me and the voices in my head meet when we come across them in our travels.
---> '''Me''': Exploding barrels!\\
'''Also Me''': It's like they were placed there specifically for us to use. High Mooooooooon!
* LostFoodGrievance: Cable was able to convince me to battle Mister Sinister by pointing out that Sinister's success also means the destruction of my '''favorite taco restaurant'''! I guess this also overlaps with FoodAsBribe.
* LudicrousGibs: Enemies have a tendency of exploding into gore when they die (KA-BLOOEY!).
* MadHatter: Life's a blast when you're not constrained by sanity or logic!
* MaleGaze: With so many beautiful butts, It's hard not to look.
* ManChild: Yellow Box acts a lot like this, compared to [[OnlySaneMan White Box]].
** Some people unfairly claim I am as well, but they're just big ugly stupid doo-doo heads!
* MeaningfulName: Mr. Sinister, [[CaptainObvious he's a bad guy]].
* MedalOfDishonor: The "You've been Cole-slaw-tered!" achievement requires you to royally suck at one of my game's simple-as-crap platforming sections, dying about 10 times...unless [[VideogameCrueltyPotential you get off to that]]...[[YouBastard you]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards sick...SICK]] [[YouBastard BASTARD]].
* MegatonPunch: When I [[ItMakesAsMuchSenseInContext mistake Cable for a girl in bikini]] and do a grab motion, he reacts by slugging me. I probably deserved that.
* MookCommander: There are two kinds of these: Enemies who increase every enemy's defense (and apparently also give them regeneration) and enemies who increase every enemy's damage. Either way, the buffs disappear as soon as the commander is killed.
* MoreDakka: And this can be upgraded to make me more badass, which shouldn't be possible.
* MostCommonSuperpower: All of the female characters, with jiggle physics and skin-tight costumes to boot. It's worth mentioning four X-Men appear in the game; three women and Wolverine.
* MythologyGag: Deadpool does a Shoryuken.
* NobodyPoops: Well, nobody poops except for me. Probably shouldn't have eaten all those burritos. Taking a whiz on the other hand...
* NoFourthWall: Par for the course for Deadpool.
* NotSoAboveItAll: The[[OnlySaneMan White Box]] voice in Deadpool's head is usually serious, but still cracks crude jokes on occasion.
* OddFriendship: With Cable, they say. But I got history with Priscilla, so it just wouldn't have been right for him not to be in my game. Best buds fo'eva!
* OnlySaneMan: White Box... well, sorta, anyway. At least compared to [[ManChild Yellow Box]].
** Also Cable.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: The genocide of mutants in Genosha is pretty much the only thing in the game that is not joked about a single time- even by Deadpool.
* OptionalStealth: You can avoid some enemy encounters by doing a series of stealth takedowns in select rooms.
** There is a required stealth section in Sinister's throne room, but only because Deadpool feels like stealth-killing him.
* OverlyLongGag: There are several points in the game where waiting a long time to push a button or perform an action when prompted leads to Deadpool yelling at you to PUSH THE DAMN BUTTON; among other things.
* PrecisionFStrike: "Well, fuck you, Creator/{{Nolan|North}}."
* PsychoticManchild: The Yellow Box, the thing makes even me seem like a normal person.
* QuirkyMiniBossSquad: The Marauders; Deadpool bemoans their D-List status.
* {{Railroading}}: Attempted by White Box. He ''really'' wishes me and Yellow Box would stop fucking around and actually pay attention to the story.
* RageAgainstTheAuthor: If High Moon can't make my game the way I want, you bet your ass I'm going to call them out on it!
--> I blame YOU, Daniel Way!
* RebusBubble: Used when Cable tells me to stay away from the security tower, because Mister Sinister was in it. Of course I go after him anyways. Hey, the guy basically stole my contract!
* RealIsBrown: It is not! Oh, you mean the coloring. Yeah the doesn't a lot of color outside of some the characters costumes do its areas, in order, consist of; a skyscraper, a sewer (a very brown one), most of it in a ruined city on Genosha, with some buildings with grey interiors, and briefly going into a cave. So get used to grey, cause there isn't a lot else.
* RoleReprisal: Now come on. If any [[TheOtherDarrin other cheapskate]] voiced me, I wouldn't sound as cool as Creator/NolanNorth.
** Not even [[VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance John Kassir]]?
*** Uh... Well, except maybe him, but...
** Creator/{{Will|Friedle}} [[WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan Friedle]]?
*** That too, I guess, but...
** ''Creator/RyanReynolds?''
*** Ehhh... Well. Moving on. Unsurprisingly, Wolvie's once again voiced by Creator/SteveBlum. Seriously, does that man ever sleep? He's done like, what? A bajillon gruff voices already?
*** And on a slightly surprising note, Gwendoline Yeo's back as [[WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen Domino]].
* RuleOfCool: Hey, Troper! Why is this not named Rule Of Deadpool?
** [[{{Beat}} ...]][[BlatantLies Legal issues.]]
* RuleOfFunny: Same here. Wait, would that cause some kind of cool-funny Internet singularity problem? Awesome!
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: Designers really need to understand that buttons and stuff should make "beep" and "boop" sounds when you press them. Until they do, I guess I'll fill in for them. But they'd better appreciate it!
* {{Sexposition}}: This one time, Summers was going on about his dire-warning-from-the-future crap and it was so boring that I had to shot myself to shut him up. However, he left a note (in my chest) saying he wanted me to the north of Genosha. I didn't want to until the note mentioned that there's also a [[MostCommonSuperpower big-breasted]] woman who claims to be my biggest fan! [[spoiler: There wasn't... I was actually [[HoYay groping Cable]].]]
* ScriptBreaking: That explosive barrel machine was really fun! [[BalefulPolymorph That cow]] wasn't paying enough attention to how ''awesome'' I am, [[spoiler:[[BossBattle and neither was the machine]], actually]].
* ShmuckBait: There's a button you can push early on to watch me use the bathroom. If you press it, I'll sit down and use the bathroom while you watch. [[TakeThatAudience Freak!]]
* ShoutOut:
** I do a [[Franchise/StreetFighter Shoryuken]] in the first act.
** In the sewer, [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles there's a pizza with a sai stuck in it.]]
** I like to do shout outs. I do a ''lot'' of shout outs. I just wouldn't be me if I didn't reference mediums that I shouldn't technically be aware of!
** Hell, I even make a passing reference to ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' when I interact with my dog! C'mon boy! Red rocket! Red rocket!
** When Cable finishes work on the Sentinel foot, I scream [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Roll Out!]]
---> '''White Box:''' Uhh, wrong franchise, buddy.
** While Cable was yacking on about something about tacos, I pictured him as a [[AnnoyingOrange talking taco]]. Mmm...
** That big empty chest and the image of my dog that appears when I jump out of it reminds me of that [[VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac little boy who cries a lot.]] ''No I don't mean me!''
** VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'s Breakdance move looks just like my Old School momentum attack. I taught her everything she knows, of course.
** "[[Series/DiffrentStrokes What'chu talkin' 'bout, Summers?]]"
* ShowingOffTheNewBody: When Rogue absorbs my healing factor, she also absorbs the voices in my head. She then feels compelled to "check the girls out," [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial for reasons totally other than to appeal to all the lonely gamers out there]].
* ShowsDamage: If you let me get shot enough, my suit gets torn apart by the minute, showing off bits of my [[BodyHorror sexy body]] here and there. It gets to the point where you can see me like [[http://i.imgur.com/37V6hGP.png this]].
* SigilSpam: Deadpool's logo appears everywhere- even in ancient Genosha ruins. Deadpool lampshades how little sense this makes.
* SnotBubble: When Deadpool falls asleep- both in his apartment and when mingling with two chatty fan-girls.
* SquishyWizard: Fits with her [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway lame]] skill set for Vertigo to go down from one gunshot.
* StealthBasedMission: Ordinarily, I wouldn't pass up the chance to have bullet-y fun for everyone. But I ''reeeeeally'' wanted revenge on that prick Sinister, so I made sure to take out all his guards silently. Sure as hell not gonna bother doing it again if I need to watch the player fall in love with a text prompt again, though.
* StuffBlowingUp: I wouldn't want to restrict myself to just stabbing, shooting, lasering, slashing, smashing, and [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment stabbing]]. I mean, that'd just get dull. So I have a few grenades and land mines. You know, for giggles.
** Also, at various plot-critical moments, I reach into my handy stock of C4 to make the kind of explosions that break the budget. Literally.
* SuicideAsComedy: Dammit Cable, with your long rambling boring speeches! [[GoodThingYouCanHeal Good thing I can heal.]]
* SuperPoweredMooks: Sinister's army of clones has about a half-dozen different kinds of these, but most of the game is spent fighting his powerless ones. Doesn't seem like he's really got it down pat though, I'm pretty sure {{ComicBook/Gambit}} knows more than 2 words and I don't think his powers consist of "do your best zombie impression and then blow yourself up". Would be a lot funnier if that's all he could do, though.
* TakeOurWordForIt: That guy I was supposed to kidnap ''WAS'' a bad guy. If what you're told about him ain't enough, there's the fact that he's helping Sinister.
* TakeThatAudience: I told the comic nerds who complained that Rogue cannot currently fly in the comics but can in the game to stop whining about it, move out of their parents' basement and then get laid. Hey, I got their money already, what are they going to do about it, trade the game in?
** [[TemptingFate We really shouldn't be giving them any ideas you know.]] While we're at it, maybe we should give them their asthma inhalers and glasses back too.
** But if you watch me use the bathroom, you are a freak. I ain't taking that one back.
* TalkingToThemself: Beyond the more obvious example, Melissa Disney is the voice actress for both Rogue and Psylocke.
* TemptingFate: Mr. White says that his safe room is "Deadpool proof". [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Too bad it wasn't bomb proof]].
-->How's ''that'' for impenetrable, asshole?
* ThankingTheViewer: During the game's ending Deadpool turns to the player and thanks them for playing.
* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: Even the henchmen of this game aren't safe from our "hero's" insanity.
-->'''Mook 1''': Alright the cart is ready, pull that lever to open the gate!
-->'''Mook 2''': Ok! I'm pulling this lever, RIGHT HERE, to open the gate!
-->'''Mook 1''': Which lever? (camera pans to Mook 2)
-->'''Mook 2''': ''(gestures to lever)'' THIS lever!
-->'''Mook 1''': ''(camera pans to gate as it opens)'' That's fine work with that lever, son!
-->'''Mook 2''': Yes. The gate is now open because I pulled this lever!
-->'''Deadpool:''' Dude! We get it High Moon. Thanks.
-->'''Mook 1 ([[BrickJoke later on]])''': WE FORGOT TO PULL THE LEVER!
* TheThreeTrials: My lovely lady-friend Death needs a few mutant souls set free, so I pick up one pretty colored bottle at a time and head through some portals to get 'em back. We got [[MultiMookMelee a pit with a bunch of assholes raining down on me,]] a few pop quizzes from 'Deadpoolio the Amazing', and a fairground shooting gallery...[[RightOnQueue with the ultimate test of endurance.]]
* TheUnreveal: There are several points where Cable or the X-Men try to explain the plot to Deadpool... and Deadpool completely ignores them.
* ToiletHumor: Deadpool makes several jokes involving bodily fluids.
-->'''Deadpool, after blowing up a bathroom''' That's what happens when you mix C-4 and a bean burrito! Now Be honest: I'm not the only one with a little but of shit in their pants right now, am I?
* UnexpectedCharacter: The main villains in the game- apart from Mr. Sinister- are the Marauders. Deadpool complains about how they couldn't get better villains for the game.
* UnexpectedGameplayChange: Come on! You should have seen the sidescrolling platformer bit coming when you saw the green pipe I was about to go down.
** High Moon does this a lot in my game, actually. Something about how the pipe-surfing and turret sections break up the brawler gameplay so it doesn't get repetitive. Whatever.
* UnreliableNarrator: There are a few points in the story where Deadpool hallucinates things that aren't there, like a naked fan girl or a party room full of women in bikinis and a swimming pool.
* VillainousBreakdown: Sinister is ''not'' pleased when his entire army of clones gets killed, and not even by a real mutant- he rants to Deadpool about how disgusting and pathetic he is when the two come face-to-face.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: Deadpool eventually succumbs to Vertigo's powers and vomits onscreen.
* WallJump: Naturally, with his cat-like agility.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Deadpool taunts Vertigo for having a lame power: the ability to make people dizzy. He quickly regrets it.
* WhoWritesThisCrap: Deadpool constantly bitches about the script and the stupid things it has him do, while one of the voices in his head bemoans that nobody knows what the story is because Deadpool didn't read the script.
* WithCatlikeTread: You have the option of performing stealth kills with firearms... thus alerting the entire rest of the room to your presence because of the gunshot noise.
* WolfPackBoss: The final boss pits you against roughly a dozen clones of Mr. Sinister.
* YouHaveOutLivedYourUsefulness: Sinister kills Chance White after he's gotten access to Chance's satellite.
* YoureInsane: Mr. White accuses Deadpool of this after Deadpool '''throws him out of a window while sitting on his chest!'''
* YouSuck: Deadpool will taunt the player for taking a lot of damage, not using momentum attacks when they're available, using the sai weapons to kill enemies very slowly, running out of ammo, and getting killed.
