->''"Prepare yourself for the greatest pinball gaming experience of all time!"''

Creator/ZenStudios released their ''Deadpool'' DigitalPinballTable in 2014. The character moves around throughout the digital table, comments on the player's actions, and plays a recursive version of the table positioned on the left apron. The table is available as an add-on download for ''[[VideoGame/ZenPinball Pinball FX 2]]'' and ''Zen Pinball 2'', and as an in-app purchase for ''Zen Pinball/Marvel Pinball''.

The primary goal is to advance through the nine Chapters, divided into six Issues. These range from fending off Deadpool's EvilTwin to dealing with Haters, with the [[WizardMode ultimate goal]] being a pinball duel against Deadpool himself. There's also the "Sidekick" modes, which include things like cleaning trash off the playfield and repairing Deadpool's suit of power armor. Four different multiball modes round out the package.

Not to be confused with Creator/{{Stern}}'s later ''Deadpool'' {{physical pinball table|s}}. Tropes for that go on [[Pinball/{{Deadpool}} this page]].
----
!!The ''Deadpool'' digital pinball table contains examples of:
* AntiFrustrationFeatures:
** Like every table Zen makes, the player gets a complementary 30-second ball saver when they blow the ball into play with TNT.
** Kickbacks can be turned on using a cheat code and can be saved for the next ball.
** Dropped balls can be fixed by replaying the chapter.
* {{Bowdlerize}}: Since the table is part of a larger set with a blanket EveryoneTenAndUpRating, Deadpool can't use curse words, but he will [[SoundEffectBleep bleep]] a few out on occasion while wishing for the devs to make a more adult-oriented pinball game.
* ButtonMashing: The player has to do this in the "Tie Breaker" chapter when they arm-wrestle Deadpool through the screen.
* DevelopersForesight: This table's ball saver relies on a grenade placed on the outhole to blast the ball back into play. And in case it ''doesn't'' work, Deadpool will provide a new one that automatically plunges back into play.
* EvilTwin: Deadpool and the player must fight his evil twin in the "Evil Deadpool" chapter.
* FadeToWhite: After losing the last ball, Deadpool walks up to the TNT one last time. For a moment it looks like the game will continue, then Deadpool blows it up and the screen goes white. GameOver! Come back soon!
* HehHehYouSaidX: Getting a 3-Way Super Combo prompts Deadpool to announce it, then quietly titter "3-way!".
* LifeMeter: Deadpool has battles with a bunch of enemies, and his life counter and the enemies' show up on the dot matrix display when it happens.
* {{Minigame}}: The arm-wrestling match in "Tie Breaker" and the shooting gallery in "Don't Touch That" take the player's focus off of the main playfield.
* MiniMecha: Deadpool has a powered armor suit in the "Don't Touch That" chapter in a mini-game. Any of three side modes about it can be played by spelling WEASEL. It's briefly stolen by Deadpool's EvilTwin during the chapter "Evil Me", but can be recovered by shooting {{Combos}}.
* NoFairCheating: Players can't brag online about a high score earned by messing with the operator's menu to make it a piece of cake because high scores are only honored on factory settings.
* PressXToNotDie: The player must do this when arm-wrestling Deadpool through the screen in the "Tie Breaker" chapter, and sometimes during the next one, "Return of the Dead(pool)".
* RecurringBoss: The player needs to beat Lil' Deadpool, which somehow turned rogue on Deadpool, more than once.
* RecursiveReality: Deadpool sometimes plays the replica of the pinball table which sits on the left apron of the pinball table. When zoomed out, it looks like the player is playing on the left apron on an even ''bigger'' replica of the table! So, it's a pinball table in a pinball table ''in a pinball table''...
* ScoreMultiplier: Spell WILSON on the bumper rollovers to kick the multiplier up a notch.
* ShoutOut: Getting a {{combo|s}} sometimes results in Deadpool declaring that it was [[Series/HowIMetYourMother "legen - wait for it - dary!"]].
* SkillShot: If the player carefully adjusts the power of the TNT plunger so that the apex of the shot hits the right one of the three lit mask icons, they have a chance to hit a target on the left half of the table for a Super Skill shot.
* SoundEffectBleep: Any foul words Deadpool says are bleeped out thanks to the game rating.
* SpellingBonus: Multiple spellings provide bonuses, such as WADE for a chance to light a kickback, WILSON to raise the score multiplier, BOB (as in Deadpool's sidekick Bob, Agent of Hydra) to light locks for Hydra Multiball, and more.
* TemptingFate: Nudged the table? Deadpool says, "Do that again! One more time! I ''dare'' you!"
* TheEndOrIsIt: When it's game over, the player sees the words "TheEnd" with a crudely drawn question mark right next to it.
* WizardMode: "Play With Me", where you play pinball against Deadpool himself and attempt to outscore him.
