* AdaptiveArmor: After Eddie joins the FBI's anti-Carnage task force, the symbiote emulates Agent Venom by taking on the appearance of body armor.
* AmbiguousSituation: The Toxin symbiote seemingly perishes when [[spoiler:it is assimilated by Jubulile van Scotter's symbiote, which evaporates into wisps of pink and gold smoke after she fries Chthon with a massive beam of light. However, according to the writer's statement on Twitter its possible that it might return in the future]].
* BioArmor: During Toxin's stint with the Anti-Symbiote Task Force, the symbiote assumed the appearance of black-and-red body armor similar to Agent Venom.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: When bonded to Eddie Brock, the symbiote's eye-patches are initially black with small white inner eyes.
* CloningBlues: Blackheart made duplicates of the symbiote and bonded them to copies of ComicBook/{{X 23}} to create an AmazonBrigade.
* CombatTentacles: When enraged the symbiote sprouts a mass of tentacles from its host's back.
* EnemyMine: Eddie told Flash that he and the symbiote had agreed to work together to kill Venom (and presumably Carnage as well), but after that they'd try to kill each other. They later come to an understanding and emulate Flash's appearance as Agent Venom.
* GoodCounterpart: To Carnage, its "father".
* GoodColorsEvilColors: When bonded to Patrick the symbiote was orange-red and blue, but when bonded to Eddie its [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver red and black]].
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: While bonded to Patrick it was on the side of good, however this changed when Patrick was murdered by Blackheart and the Venom symbiote (while bonded to Flash) attempted to murder it, driving it to become bloodthirsty and vengeful. After its capture by the Crime Master, it would use Eddie Brock as a puppet and willingly joined the Savage Six in a effort to kill Agent Venom resulting in it and Eddie almost burning to death. This resulted in Eddie gaining enough control to work out a deal with it, if the Toxin symbiote allowed Eddie to have control and serve as a lethal protector once again, they would work together until they successfully kill Agent Venom where they would then try to kill each other, which it accepted. This rematch with Agent Venom ultimately ended with it landing as a face after forming a truce with Agent Venom and it would later sacrifice its life to save the world from Chthon.
* HulkingOut: When it took over Eddie - and when Eddie later lost control while fighting Flash - it [[{{Sizeshifter}} bulks up]] enough that Venom almost fits inside its mouth.
* LegacyCharacter: After Blackheart beat Patrick to death and took the symbiote, it was stolen again by the Crime Master and forcibly bonded to Eddie Brock.
* NoBiologicalSex: The symbiote has no gender identity.
--> '''Symbiote:''' What are you writing?\\
'''Patrick:''' None of your business.\\
'''Symbiote:''' "I'm a boy"--you think? Maybe its time [[TheTalk I sat you down and talked about the birds and bees]], symbiote-style.
* NothingIsScarier: This concept is lost on the symbiote, despite Patrick's attempts at explaining it while the two were reading ''Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde''.
* NotQuiteDead: The Toxin symbiote was lit on fire by Flash, but survived and recuperated alongside its host.
* OverlyLongTongue: Like its "grandfather" (and [[DependingOnTheArtist occasionally "father"]]), Toxin manifests a serpentine prehensile tongue. The main difference, though, is that Toxin's tongue is ''green''.
* {{Patricide}}: The symbiote wants to kill Carnage and Venom.
* PuppeteerParasite: The Toxin symbiote seized total control of Eddie's body when it first bonded to him, but they later work out an arrangement similar to the one he had with the Venom symbiote.
* PsychopathicManchild: Was supposed to be even ''more'' AxCrazy than Carnage and initially had the mentality of a child.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: The Toxin symbiote delivers one to the Venom symbiote for letting Flash and the Avengers lobotomize it.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Toxin goes from being red-and-blue when bonded to [[ByTheBookCop Patrick]] to red-and-black when bonded to [[UnscrupulousHero Eddie]]. As a result, after Eddie helps Flash take down the Symbiote Slayers, he's mistaken for Carnage by the media.
* SuperSenses: The symbiote enhances its host's sense of smell.
* ToServeMan: While Toxin hasn't voiced its grandparent's monstrous appetite, while bonded to it Pat came close to munching on a few bad guys, while with Eddie they possibly ate a group of SWAT officers who found Toxin after killing a bunch of criminals (while one panel has a closeup with Toxin's jaws the comic ends when the SWAT officers start shooting) and two of the Symbiote Slayers' hosts.
* UnexplainedRecovery: Prior to its return in ''ComicBook/KingInBlack: Planet of the Symbiotes'' #3, the Toxin symbiote was last seen dissolving into pink smoke. No explanation is given as to how it recovered and got off the Chthonic Island, though it mentioned it was so weak that not even Knull thought it was worthwhile to revive it and hints the Cult of Knull may have had something to do with it.
* TheVoiceless: Like Venom and Carnage were originally, the symbiote cannot speak unless bonded to a host.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: When bonded to Pat, the symbiote spoke using slightly distorted blue speech bubbles with white text. When bonded to Eddie it speaks using red speech bubbles with jagged white text.
* WholeCostumeReference: On [[http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130118221216/marveldatabase/images/e/e4/Venom_Vol_2_33_Textless.jpg the alternate cover]] for ''Venom'' Vol. 2 #33, Toxin is shown looking identical to Eddie's Venom form as a MythologyGag to the cover of ''The Amazing Spider-Man'' #316.
* YouMonster: The symbiote reads Pat's journal, throws a tantrum after being referred to as a monster in it, breaks the laptop, [[HilarityEnsues loots a store to get a replacement]] (thinking Pat wouldn't notice the difference) and gets into a skirmish with Spider-Man.

* AngelFaceDemonFace: When Pat is calm he has NoMouth, but when angry he manifests MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily.
* ArchEnemy: Razor Fist, despite the hilarious power difference.[[note]]Razor Fist has blades for hands. That's literally it.[[/note]] He killed Pat's father, and tortured one of his friends nearly to death.
* ByTheBookCop: Pat's strict law-abiding nature has led to some friction with ComicBook/BlackCat and his symbiote.
* ChainPain: His "web lines" look like chains.
* CostumeCopycat: When the symbiote was calm, Pat looked a lot like Spider-Man sans the webbing motif.
* ConsultingAConvictedKiller: When Patrick decides to help bring in the villains that Electro broke out of the Raft, he visits the imprisoned Mr. Hyde to get information on Hyde's ex-partner King Cobra.
* CurbstompBattle: Dished these out regularly, victims including a Venom and Carnage tag team, and half of the Wrecking Crew. He was later on the receiving end of one from Blackheart, who killed him and took the symbiote.
* CursedWithAwesome: Patrick really didn't want to become host to what was the most powerful symbiote ever at the time.
* DisappearedDad: Patrick abandoned his family to take care of the infant symbiote.
* DrivenToSuicide: Pat tried to kill himself by jumping in front of a subway train, but the symbiote saved him.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Pat was beaten to death in an alley by Blackheart, who took his symbiote and ate his family - all off-panel to boot.
* {{Expy}}: Patrick is comparable to Hybrid.
* FastTunnelling: Stopped a bank robbery by burrowing into the building.
* HeroicBuild: As Toxin, Patrick was given an athletically muscular figure somewhere between Spider-Man's and Venom's.
--> '''Meadows:''' S-so this is your infamous symbiote. N-nice six-pack, pal. Not that six-packs turn me on or anything.
* IHaveAFamily: Patrick tried this on Carnage after first meeting him. It didn't work.
--> '''Pat:''' If you can understand me... please, please don't kill me! I-I've got a young wife--with a baby on the way.\\
'''Carnage:''' Correction. Ya got a young widow--with an orphan on the way!
* ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies: Pat left his wife and newborn to protect them from Venom, Carnage, and himself.
* JustJokingJustification: Patrick would go with this whenever he or the symbiote came close to eating someone.
* KilledOffScreen: Patrick disappeared for some time, and the symbiote resurfaced sans host in 2012. It was eventually revealed Blackheart had beaten him to death in a gutter to get his symbiote. And then there's what supposedly [[https://twitter.com/remender/status/200788585341927425 happened]] to his wife and baby.
* LightningBruiser: Was faster and stronger than Venom ''and'' Carnage combined.
* LovecraftianSuperpower: Can spawn CombatTentacles and shapeshift his limbs into weapons.
* OddFriendship: Patrick's main confidante was Black Cat, a thief.
* OneSteveLimit: Patrick's son's name? Edward.
* PainfulTransformation: Patrick turning into Toxin rarely looked comfortable, what with all the wincing and grimacing and him exclaiming, "Aaghh!"
* {{Phlegmings}}: Patrick's drool was [[BadBlackBarf black]].
* ScarilyCompetentTracker: As long as he had something to go off of, like an article of clothing, he can track it.
* SplitPersonalityTakeover: Patrick arranged with the symbiote that they could alternate control of his body for two hours as long as it didn't kill anyone or commit any crimes.
* SuperReflexes: While still in human form, Patrick blocks all of Black Cat's attempts to knock him out, without even intending to.
* SymbioticPossession: Toxin had a unique relationship with Patrick where they alternated control over his body.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Patrick gave one to Razor Fist, claiming that he uses blades instead of prosthetic hands because it makes him feel disassociated from his crimes, and because he wants others to tend to his every menial need like a helpless child.
* ToThePain: In his first superhero outing, he nearly loses it on a gang of bank robbers who have surrendered.
--> '''Toxin:''' You are heartless killers. You killed a cop. Who no doubt had a family. Who'll be heartbroken. You deserve to die. In the most painful and heartless way imaginable. Your brains, maybe. Soft and eggy, no doubt. Evolved over thousands of years so you can waste them. I'll suck them out through your eye sockets.
* YouKilledMyFather: Patrick's father was murdered by Razor Fist. When Toxin goes after him, he tells Spider-Man that if he were to cross the line and kill Razor Fist, Spidey should "put me in Ryker's along with the other bad guys".
* WholeCostumeReference: When under control, Patrick as Toxin looks almost identical to Spider-Man, but without a webbing motif or spider emblems.

* BioArmor: During Toxin's stint with the Anti-Symbiote Task Force, the symbiote assumed the appearance of black-and-red body armor similar to Agent Venom.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: When bonded to Eddie Brock, the symbiote's eye-patches are initially black with small white inner eyes.
* CloningBlues: Blackheart made duplicates of the symbiote and bonded them to copies of ComicBook/{{X 23}} to create an AmazonBrigade.
* CombatTentacles: When enraged the symbiote sprouts a mass of tentacles from its host's back.

* GoodCounterpart: To Carnage, its "father".
* GoodColorsEvilColors: When bonded to Patrick the symbiote was orange-red and blue, but when bonded to Eddie its [[RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver red and black]].
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: While bonded to Patrick it was on the side of good, however this changed when Patrick was murdered by Blackheart and the Venom symbiote (while bonded to Flash) attempted to murder it, driving it to become bloodthirsty and vengeful. After its capture by the Crime Master, it would use Eddie Brock as a puppet and willingly joined the Savage Six in a effort to kill Agent Venom resulting in it and Eddie almost burning to death. This resulted in Eddie gaining enough control to work out a deal with it, if the Toxin symbiote allowed Eddie to have control and serve as a lethal protector once again, they would work together until they successfully kill Agent Venom where they would then try to kill each other, which it accepted.

* OverlyLongTongue: Like its "grandfather" (and [[DependingOnTheArtist occasionally "father"]]), Toxin manifests a serpentine prehensile tongue. The main difference, though, is that Toxin's tongue is ''green''.

* PuppeteerParasite: The Toxin symbiote seized total control of Eddie's body when it first bonded to him, but they later work out an arrangement similar to the one he had with the Venom symbiote.
* PsychopathicManchild: Was supposed to be even ''more'' AxCrazy than Carnage and initially had the mentality of a child.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: The Toxin symbiote delivers one to the Venom symbiote for letting Flash and the Avengers lobotomize it.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Toxin goes from being red-and-blue when bonded to [[ByTheBookCop Patrick]] to red-and-black when bonded to [[UnscrupulousHero Eddie]]. As a result, after Eddie helps Flash take down the Symbiote Slayers, he's mistaken for Carnage by the media.
* SuperSenses: The symbiote enhances its host's sense of smell.
* ToServeMan: While Toxin hasn't voiced its grandparent's monstrous appetite, while bonded to it Pat came close to munching on a few bad guys, while with Eddie they possibly ate a group of SWAT officers who found Toxin after killing a bunch of criminals (while one panel has a closeup with Toxin's jaws the comic ends when the SWAT officers start shooting) and two of the Symbiote Slayers' hosts.
* UnexplainedRecovery: Prior to its return in ''ComicBook/KingInBlack: Planet of the Symbiotes'' #3, the Toxin symbiote was last seen dissolving into pink smoke. No explanation is given as to how it recovered and got off the Chthonic Island, though it mentioned it was so weak that not even Knull thought it was worthwhile to revive it and hints the Cult of Knull may have had something to do with it.
* TheVoiceless: Like Venom and Carnage were originally, the symbiote cannot speak unless bonded to a host.
