Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalNationality: A minor case, inadvertently cause by Wolverine's AgeLift. This version was born in what is now the Northwest Territory in 1832, as opposed to the comic character's birthdate of 1882. The problem comes with the unification of Canada in 1870; before that point, what is now the Northwest Territory would have been the northwestern territories of British North America, making this version of Wolverine British by birth.


* BreakoutCharacter: Come on, it's Wolverine! He has appeared in every film of the two trilogies, even if it's only in [[TheCameo cameos]] made just to have him there (''First Class'', ''Apocalypse''), not to mention having his own trilogy of spin-off films centered on his solo adventures. Even in ''Film/Deadpool2016'', in which he doesn't appear, the titular character brings him up (and Hugh Jackman) a lot, mainly due to 'Pool considering Wolverine (or Hugh Jackman) a SitcomArchNemesis of sorts to him, and [[spoiler:''Deadpool 2'', even despite being released after Wolverine's death in ''Logan'', features him via archive footage from ''X-Men Origins: Wolverine'' when Deadpool time-travels to kill Weapon XI]].

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: In the comics, Wolverine is supposed to be extremely stocky, short and not an attractive man, and while having many conquests, they're exclusively attributed to him being a KavorkaMan. Here, he's a TallDarkAndHandsome Creator/HughJackman, who is so tall that castmate Creator/JamesMarsden had to [[ScullyBox stand on boxes to not be dwarfed by him]].

Added DiffLines:

* Really700YearsOld: He was born in 1832, making him [[spoiler: 197 at the time of his death in ''Logan''.]] However, his healing factor means that, for most of his adult life, he looked to only be in his mid-30s.

* LastOfHisKind: Downplayed (though not very much), then subverted. By the time of ''{{Film/Logan}}'', he's convinced that there are no other mutants left aside from himself, Xavier, and Caliban. [[spoiler:He's proven wrong by the existence of the X-23 project, whom are a bunch of kids, including Laura, with mutant powers.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RefusalOfTheCall: When Charles and Erik come asking for help in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', he declines. Rudely.
-->'''Logan:''' Go fuck yourself.


* NiceGuy: ''X-Men Origins'' depicts him as a much kinder and laid-back man who personally objected to his brother's senseless killings towards innocent lives, treats his previous girlfriend, Kayla, well and even after she's revealed to be working for Stryker as a promise to release her sister, Emma from his captivity which he really doesn't, he still has a heart to forgive her by rescuing Emma and every one of the mutants over himself. But after he's shot in the head by Stryker with adamantium bullets, resulting in him losing his memory, he's now a slightly cold and cynical man with a hint of kindness in himself during the present timeline.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalWimp: A ''minor'' case; while also qualifying as being an AdaptationalBadass for reasons mentioned above, he loses his mastery of numerous martial arts in the process. In the comics, he knew 28 variations of kung fu alone, could use pressure points on not just humans but aliens and supernatural beings, and his swordsmanship impressed the legendary Silver Samurai. Here, he largely relies on his HealingFactor and adamantium skeleton, without much in the way of technique. It's a good thing his prowess outside of this has been upped to compensate.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassBaritone: With a side helping of GutturalGrowler. Logan has a deep, gruff voice that communicates in no uncertain terms just how much of a badass he is.
