These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Acceptable Targets: All the currently dead Presidents of the United States, up to and including Gerald Ford. Hey, I'm Canadian. I got no problem slashing their hearts out, especially if they're trying to raise an army.
People just can't seem to agree on which way I swing. It's been argued about ever since my delightful mancrush on Cable. Marvel and the writers seem to have decided upon me being omnisexual or bisexual in denial. Not that I'm in denial about anything!
Cargo Ship: If deviantart is anything to go by, some people ship me with my gun.
Complete Monster: Oh, Bullseye, that lovable psycho! He and I hang out together, you know! Okay, I'm not exactly approving of how he kills a bunch of people for no real reason and never even spends the money he makes, or how he makes it his mission in life to murder everyone Ol' Hornhead cares about. Or the time he hooked up with Norman Osborn and was a total liability to that whole Dark Avengers thing because of his total inability not to murder people at the drop of a hat! And he tries to kill me! Me of all people! Just cause he can! So... Why do I hang out with him again...?
Crossover Ship: Yeah, some people actively want me to get with that Joker dude's sidekick, Harley Quinn or whatever. Gotta say, I'm lovin' the black and red...but first of all, have you SEEN that Joker guy?! He's crazier than me! And she's in love with him? Yeah, I doubt that one's happening for a long, long time. Second of all, I don't want it to end up like how this guy pictured it.◊ Ouch...
Dork Age: Rumor has it that the main reason why I became the nut I am today is because fans of Spider-Man were getting sick of the constant Wangst Peter Parker was going through during The Clone Saga.
Ensemble Darkhorse: I manage to be this in most of the adaptions when I'm in them, but the only adaption I get to myself so far is my game which didn't get as much of budget as what some other characters have.
Everyone loves my supporting cast too, like Bob and Blind Al. What can I say? I hang out some cool dudes and dudettes!
"Hey, if you looked like Ryan Reynolds crossed with a shar-pei, you'd understand!" Although Avi Arad had said, before any production of a Wolverine movie, that if my wonderful face was ever to be portrayed onscreen, he wanted Ryan to be my face.
This scene. "You ever play Street Fighter? SHORYUKEN!" In Marvel vs. Capcom 3, I decided to use it. And before that, the guys at Udon went and had Ryu reference that scene in their Street Fighter comic! I tell ya, it's the gift that keeps on giving!
Bullseye hero-worships me to the point where it starts smelling rather Ho Yay-ish in Dark Reign, going so far as to imagine me as something of his savior from the teachers and kids he hated in school. He cried when we said goodbye! Heck, back in Joe Kelly's run, he mentioned he liked me because I make him laugh. I'm probably the nearest thing he has to a friend... when we aren't trying to kill each other. Which I usually don't take seriously; I don't know about him. Really!
AND WAS IT JUST ME OR DID STEVE BLUSH WHEN HE WAS GOING TO SIT ON MY LAP? Whew, got a little excited there. I mean, we are talking about Captain America after all.
Logan and I get a good amount of this. Especially in one of my team up's with him.
I get loads of this with Spider-Man. Sadly it's more one-sided than with the other guys.
It's Popular, Now It Sucks: Hey, come on! Just because of all the new meat bought in by X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the upcoming surge from my movie? OK, the former does have reason why it should be hated (Dudepeel... what were they thinking?!) and maybe having all these new comic titles to my name might be a little ridiculous, but my movie? It's gonna be great!
Love Me or Hate Me: Hey, what can I say? I'm better at provoking polarized emotional reactions (both in-universe and out) than Andy Kaufman! *sniff* I miss you, Andy...
Magnificent Bastard: What can I say? When I pull off a badass stunt of tricking everyone, I pull it off WITH STYLE!
The Box. Whenever I get serious. People forget I can be a scary guy. 'Cause, you see, I am actually one of the most dangerous men on the planet. Think about that. I am more dangerous than Norman Osborn. Me. More dangerous than Norman.
Critical Dissonance: Those asshole critics didn't like my game much, but it was much better received by the players out there. At least some people have good taste.
Ending Fatigue: invoked Look, I get that I'm awesome, and I get that you want me to kill guys all day for your amusement, and I get that Sinister totally deserves it. But really, did he have to throw ALL THOSE CLONES at me at the end?I was getting tired!
Me: Whew! That was a whole lot of omigod here come more of them. Me Again: What, did Sinister get these guys in bulk?
When the big-breasted fangirl turns out to be Cable, I have the option of squeezing his chest. He punches me right in the face for that... Okay, I admit, I kinda deserved that.
Everybody else gets expositional cutscenes to introduce their characters. Cable gets a badass rap song about how awesome he is. I might tease him all the time and ignore his monologues, but I do think he's a pretty cool guy...just don't tell him I said that.
It's Easy, so It Sucks: IT DOES NOT SUCK! But yeah, aside from fighting the same sets of enemies for most of the game from start to finish, the game is a bit too generous with health ammo pick-ups, even on the higher settings, with every other enemy dropping them means you easily recover health quickly even in huge crowds and can be as trigger happy as you like with any of the guns without worry about running out of ammo.
Moral Event Horizon: Everyone else tells me that Sinister crossed this with his plot to eradicate the world, or something. But I know he really crossed it when he stole my contract!
Nausea Fuel: Okay, I admit it. Maybe I did go a little too far with taking a dump in my own toilet. But hey, it's what you made me do. Also, cutting and trying to climb your own intestines is as painful as it is gross to look at.
So Okay, It's Average: While everyone loves the humor of my game, the gameplay is regarded as this, since you mostly fight the same enemies for most of it and the combat is mostly just having me charge into melee, except the end of it. Also, it doesn't help that it's really short.
