** Around the 90s, Sabertooth wasn't just my ArchEnemy - he claimed he was my dad. [[SubvertedTrope Damn glad it turned out he was just lying]]... although there's [[ComicBoo/XMenForever actually one universe]] where he really ''was'' my old man. He even was genuinely upset when I got killed off there, which is creepy on way too many levels.

Added DiffLines:

** About the one kid in the main universe I have anything approaching a healthy relationship with is [[Comicbook/{{X 23}} Laura]]. And even then the first time we met she tried to kill me, though I was able to talk her down.


* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: They say that guy Lobo was supposed to be a parody of me, what with his name meanin' "wolf" and him bein' based off the idea of a NinetiesAntiHero. There's a reason we fought in that one crossover...

to:

* AntagonisticOffspring:AntagonisticOffspring: Kind of a theme with me. I guess I should be lucky the [[Comicbook/MarvelComics2 MC2]] writers gave me a baby girl who ''doesn't'' have these issues.



** That also happened in [[Film/TheWolverine one o' my movies]], where Harada an' his boys turned me into a human pincushion.



* BodyHorror: The adamantium being added to my skeleton was the stuff of nightmares. Also, when Magneto once tore it out of me.

* PopularityPower: I won't deny that I've benefited from this. Aside from writers going crazy with my HealingFactor mentioned above, the most infamous case is with Marvel vs. DC in my fight with Lobo where the victory was determined by popular vote, and I got the majority, except really I shouldn't have won. I didn't have my adamantium claws at the time, and even if I did, I was up against somebody with a HealingFactor that puts mine to shame and is strong enough ta' go head ta' head with the [[ComicBook/{{Superman}} Man of Steel]] himself. Even the writers couldn't figure out a way to pull this off and had the fight occur off-panel. Years later, we got a HandWave that he let me win.

* TheAlcoholic: I love beer. An' my healin' factor keeps me from gettin' drunk unless I drink a ''lot'' of it. And I usually do.

** Not even touching on the crappy alternate universe where I didnt have my healing factor and the adamantium was literally making me rot from the inside out. I've seen a lot of bad shit in my life, but damn, there are limits...



* CruelMercy: Not normally my thing, but Matsu'o Tsurayaba, one of the leaders of The Hand, found himself on the recieving end of this after he murdered my Mariko. Rather than just outright killing him, I cut off his arm, but left him alive... only to return once a year on the anniversery of Mariko's death to carve off another of the bastards body parts, no matter how he tried to run or hide. By the end, he had lost his arm, his ear, his nose and his gallbladder, and had resorted to writing me a latter asking for permission to kill himself.



* EvilCounterpart: Sabertooth is either this or a {{foil}} to me. We got the same basic power set, but I try to tame my bestial side; he ''revels'' in it. The resemblance is close enough that he's even tried to find redemption on the X-men in a couple of universes, or at least been brought onto the team as a crazier, more distrusted version of me.

I've also appeared in [[WesternAnimation/XMen a buncha]] [[WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution cartoons]] [[WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen fer]] [[WesternAnimation/TheSuperheroSquadShow kids]] (and [[WesternAnimation/HulkVs a few]] [[Anime/{{Wolverine}} fer]] [[Anime/XMen adults]]), as well as the ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'' made by Fox where I was played by Creator/HughJackman. Though he would be [[AdaptationalAttractiveness too tall, pretty, and]] [[FakeNationality Australian]] to play me in movies, his portrayal ''did'' become one of the best-known and widely praised superhero portrayals to hit the big screen, so I don't blame him. But due to Creator/{{Disney}} buying Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox, ya prolly might see me duke it out with [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse the Hulk or Thor]] on the big screen any time soon. However, it's worth considerin' that [[Film/XMen1 ya don't have ta]] [[Film/X2XMenUnited be Disney]] [[Film/TheWolverine to put out]] [[Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast a good movie]] [[Film/{{Logan}} starrin' me]]. Plus, I got a beef with that Perlmutter guy in charge of Marvel, since he's breakin' [[WolverinePublicity tradition]] and denyin' me all sorts of appearances just 'cuz he isn't gettin' along well with Fox. Bastard [[KilledOffForReal killed me off]] too. Still, closest thing I got to a daughter [[ComicBook/{{X 23}} took up the mantle,]] so there's that at least. [[spoiler: [[ComicBook/MarvelLegacy Then they decided to bring me back to the game and give me fire claws]].]]

And then there's the video games. [[SarcasmMode Quite surprisingly]], I've been in every ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' until recently, appearing in even more games in th' series than [[Franchise/SpiderMan Spidey]]. In vanilla ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', I'm the best at what I do, and what I do is [[TierInducedScrappy win tourneys]] and piss off everyone who wants ta play as Hsien-Ko or their other favorite. But ya prolly knew that, huh. (Though [[GameBreaker possessed-Jean]] does a ''much'' better job at pissin' off all the tourney players.) Oh, and ya may have noticed, but they made my newest theme song, [[https://youtu.be/jc9tq9iB_Jg which is really just an update of my old one]], sound like a flippin ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' theme song. [[note]] The fans are hoping Perlmutter get off his high horse and put me in the [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite newest entry]], though there's a possibility Marvel will just add in my alternate future self and Laura will be taking her current role into the game. Better that than being replaced by ComicBook/BlackPanther resulting in angry fans and losses in sales (No offense, T'Challa).[[/note]]

* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:''ComicBook/MarvelLegacy'' saw me come back from th' dead.]]



* HealingFactor: I'm widely seen as the TropeCodifier. I didn't have this when I first appeared; the writers added it in later they realized they needed to explain why having metal bones didn't kill me. The exact limits of it are are [[StrongAsTheyNeedToBe inconsistent]], [[DependingOnTheWriter depending on what the different writers want]], or even between the same writers. Some of the [[RunningTheAsylum crazier fanboy writers]] have presented me as virtually immortal, even though I've died in the past and alternate timelines, [[BadFuture Days of Future Past]] being one of the most famous. The usual limitation is that I can heal from injuries to my vital organs, but I can still be killed if somethin' strong enough tries to strangle me and cuts the air off from my lungs. [[spoiler:Recently, I contracted an intelligent virus from the [[ComicBook/CaptainUniverse Microverse]], which disabled my ability to heal. The virus offered to give it back if I helped it escape ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}'s attempts to eradicate it, but no way was I lettin' it get away. Now the virus is gone, but unfortunately, looks like my healing factor's gone with it, and for good this time.]]

* MySuitIsAlsoSuper: Averted, I frequently suffer from ClothingDamage regardless of what I'm wearing.

I've also appeared in [[WesternAnimation/XMen a buncha]] [[WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution cartoons]] [[WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen fer]] [[WesternAnimation/TheSuperheroSquadShow kids]] (and [[WesternAnimation/HulkVs a few]] [[Anime/{{Wolverine}} fer]] [[Anime/XMen adults]]), as well as the ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'' made by Fox where I was played by Creator/HughJackman. Though he would be [[AdaptationalAttractiveness too tall, pretty, and]] [[FakeNationality Australian]] to play me in movies, his portrayal ''did'' become one of the best-known and widely praised superhero portrayals to hit the big screen, so I don't blame him. But due to those razzafrazzin' rights issues, ya prolly won't see me duke it out with [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse the Hulk or Thor]] on the big screen any time soon. I know, but it's worth considerin' that [[Film/XMen1 ya don't have ta]] [[Film/X2XMenUnited be Disney]] [[Film/TheWolverine to put out]] [[Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast a good movie]] [[Film/{{Logan}} starrin' me]]. Plus, I got a beef with that Perlmutter guy in charge of Marvel, since he's breakin' [[WolverinePublicity tradition]] and denyin' me all sorts of appearances just 'cuz he isn't gettin' along well with Fox. Bastard [[KilledOffForReal killed me off]] too. Still, closest thing I got to a daughter [[ComicBook/{{X 23}} took up the mantle,]] so there's that at least.
