Translation 

HERE ARE OTHER THINGS THAT HULK CAN DO!

Translation 

HULK BECOME DIFFERENT PERSON A LOT! HERE ARE DIFFERENT PEOPLE THAT HULK BECOME!
  • Bruce Banner: Hi, I'm Dr. Bruce Banner, and I'm in control of this body most of the time. While I happen to be a highly successful scientist, I have no superpowers in my default state. However, I'm also emotionally repressed, and the big guy likes to come out at moments like... uh oh... PUNY BANNER IS SMART BUT NOT STRONG LIKE HULK! GRAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!
  • Savage Hulk: THIS IS BEST HULK! STRONGEST THERE IS! HULK TALK GOOD TOO! HULK WANT TO BE LEFT ALONE BECAUSE PEOPLE NO LIKE HULK, BUT HULK WANT FRIENDS AND BE LOVED TOO, WHICH MAKE HULK GO ON ADVENTURE SOMETIMES. OF COURSE HULK GET ANGRY TOO EASY THAT MEAN HULK IS STRONGEST OF PEOPLE HE BECOME!
  • Joe Fixit: 'Bout time we got done with the shouting. Call me Joe Fixit, a.k.a., the Gray Hulk. I was the first Hulk ya ever saw (something about color and personality problems in the early comics), but don't mix me up with the green giant over there. Normally, I only come out at night or when Bruce decides to "let me out". I'm no egghead like Banner, but at least I can think (and talk) like a normal person. I also enjoy the finer things in life. Good food, expensive clothes, ladies, and the occasional sarcastic quip. I might lack the full, raw strength of the green guy and have a rather flimsy grasp on all that sciencey geek stuff Banner does, but, let's be honest; compared to my craftiness and natural knack for manipulation, those things have always seemed rather overrated to me. I'm also not afraid of getting my hands dirty to get what I want, so you'd better not get in my way. Some head shrink thinks I'm supposed to be the teen Banner never let himself be as a kid. I enjoy a good scrap now and then, but don't mix me up with that Mr. Fixit. Currently I'm "sharin'” Banner's pencil-necked geek form under Al's take on Big Green. Doesn't make me any less dangerous as Bushwhacker and Fortean learned the hard way. Now I'm back in full form and then some thanks to X-Ray of the U-Foes bombarding me with Cosmic Rays which I absorbed and Hulked Out.
  • The Merged Hulk: Also known as "The Professor", I am yet another one of the many forms the Hulk can transform into. Bruce Banner wanted me to be the most idealistic Hulk there could be, but alas, it was not to be. I was actually created by Doc Samson in an attempt to cure me of my Multiple Personality Disorder. When I get angrier, I get weaker. If I grow too angry, I become the screaming behemoth who's been breaking your ear drums every time he speaks. It's quite a good thing that Bruce Banner was able to install this failsafe in this personality, even if it is my physically weakest one.
  • The Green Scar: The word "strong" doesn't even begin to describe how powerful I am. I wound up enslaved as a gladiator on the planet Sakaar when a few puny humans decided I was too dangerous to stay on earth, and I became the greatest fighter their arena ever had. The people on Sakaar started thinking of me as their Messiah, the "Sakaarson" when I freed myself and fought against their insane king. But that's just a fairy tale. The ones that call me the Worldbreaker are the ones who are right. Don't let my apparent calm fool you. I am the angriest Hulk. I Am a Monster. And despite what the others might say, I am the strongest there is.
  • Doc Green: When Betty Ross' assassins tried to eliminate Banner and my lesser selves, I emerged courtesy of Stark's Extremis virus. Smarter than Banner and stronger than my other selves, think of me as a superior version of the "Professor". I realized that there were too many Hulks in the world and tragedy would befall them everytime, so I decided that I would cure them whether they like it or not.
  • Immortal Hulk/Devil Hulk: You know who I am? I'm the darkest side to the Hulknote ... the original Hulk from back in Jackie's days and I've decided to come back to play. What makes me the strongest? Simple. I can't die. I've been 'killed' so many times I'm actually immune to it. Oh, Bruce can die until the sun goes down... and that's when I get a chance to have some fun. Wereit not for that particular handicap, I'd be on par with the Green Scar, but what can ya do? Apparently, Banner and I solved that little problem recently. Although somehow, I appearently died for good. But you all know by now that this isn't how it works. I figure I'll be back sooner than you think and you don't need a bunch of little magic balls to do that.

WHEN HULK MAD, ONLY FEW CAN STOP HULK SMASHING EVERYTHING! PRETTY LADY, LITTLE GUY WHO KNOWS WHO HULK IS AND GREEN GIRLY HULK CAN HUG HULK TO STOP HIM SMASHING! ONLY ONES THAT CAN! BUT STUPID SOLDIER MAN KEEPS ATTACKING HULK WHILE STILL HULK! GIVE HULK PAIN! SO MUCH PAIN!! THIS MAKES HULK MAD AGAIN! RRAAAGH! THIS WAS NAMED AFTER HULK ONE TIME BEFORE BUT NOW NOT! STUPID COMPUTER PEOPLE CHANGE NAME! RAAAAGH! THIS MAKES HULK MAD! HULK NOT LIKE STUPID COMPUTER PEOPLE WITH BIG FANCY WORD AND STUPID CHANGE NAME!!!!! HULK BEST ONE THERE IS!!!! HULK SMASH!

HULK PREFER BEING ALONE! BUT WHEN HULK SMASH WITH OTHERS HULK IS BIGGEST SMASHER THERE IS! HULK IS STRONGEST AVENGER! HULK IS STRONGEST DEFENDER TOO! BUT WHEN HULK WITH PANTHEON AND WARBOUND HULK IS IN CHARGE! HULK LET AJAX AND KORG BE BIGGEST SMASHER INSTEAD!

HULK SEES IMPOSTORS WHEN HE SMASHES! RED FIREY HULK THINK HE THE STRONGEST HULK. HE THINK HE COULD SMASH HULK! BUT HULK IS STRONGEST ALWAYS AND EVER!!! RED GIRLY HULK [Bruce Banner: You mean my love, Betty Ross.] MAY BE NOT LIKE HULK BUT SHE MAKE HULK FEEL GOOD!!! [Mr. Fixit: Wish I could see that.]

PUNY PETER DAVID MADE MORE HULKS FOR BRUCE BANNER! DADDY DAVID MADE FIXIT, PROFESSOR, AND WORLDBREAKER FOR HULK TO SMASH WITH! BUT HULK DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY ARE!!! GRAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

IN SEVENTIES, PUNY TV PEOPLE MAKE TV SHOW ABOUT HULK! PUNY BIXBY PLAYED PUNY BANNER! LOU FERRIGNO HAD AWESOME MULLET AS HULK! BUT THEY MAKE HULK WEAK! AND NOT LET HIM TALK! PLUS, PUNY BANNER WAS CALLED "DAVID" AND INSTEAD OF ARMY, HULK WAS CHASED BY PUNY REPORTER CALLED "MCGEE!" BUT PUNY HUMANS LIKED SHOW ANYWAY AND IS CONSIDERED ONE OF BEST SUPERHEROES SHOWS EVER!!!

IN EIGHTIES AND NINETIES PUNY TV PEOPLE MAKE CARTOON TV SHOWS ABOUT HULK! FIRST WAS TOLD BY SUNGLASSES COMIC MAN AND PUNY BANNER SOMEHOW GETS ALL CLOTHES BACK WHEN HE COMES BACK! SECOND WAS BETTER WITH FERRIGNO AS HULK'S VOICE!

IN NEXT DECADE, PUNY HUMANS MAKE MOVIE OF HULK BY CROUCHING TIGER MAN WITH PUNY BANA AS HULK BUT HUMANS DID NOT LIKE. HURT HULK VERY MUCH!! HULK BEST ONE THERE IS!!!!! HOWEVER, HULK WAS ADAPTED INTO ELECTRONICS ALSO FEATURING BANA. HULK NOT BOTHERED AS MUCH. HUMANS TRY AGAIN LATER WITH PUNY NORTON, BUT HUMANS NOT LIKE MUCH BETTER, DAMNIT! BUT THEN BUFFY MAN PUT HULK IN THE AVENGERS WITH PUNY RUFFALO AND THE HUMANS LIKE! ESPECIALLY WHEN STUPID FLAGMAN TOLD HULK TO SMASH! OR WHEN HULK SMASH PUNY GOD!! WITH HELP OF OTHER AVENGERS HULK SMASH PUNY BOX OFFICE IN 2012, EVEN MORE THAN PUNY BLACK CAPE MAN!!!!! IN METAL MAN MOVIE 3, PUNY BANNER APPEAR AFTER CREDITS TO LISTEN TO BORING METAL MAN'S STORIES, WHICH IS GOOD BECAUSE HULK NO HAVE TO LISTEN, ONLY PUNY BANNER!!! HULK RETURNED IN AGE OF ULTRON! PUNY BANNER SAW SOME GOOD - PRETTY RUSSIAN CHICK LIKES HIM! BUT HULK ONLY LIKE BETTY!!! - AND SOME BAD - METAL MAN USED HELP OF PUNY BANNER TO CREATE EVIL ROBOT FROM TITLE! HULK TOO - MAGIC GIRL MAKE HULK CRAZY, METAL MAN PUNCHED HULK TO SLEEP! BUT HULK SMASHED AS MUCH OF EVIL ROBOT AS POSSIBLE! HULK RETURN IN HAMMER MAN 3, WHERE HULK FIGHTS IN RING LIKE GREEN SCAR, TALKS A LOT, TEAMS UP WITH HAMMER MAN AND ANGRY GIRL, AND THEN SMASHES PUNY BIG WOLF! HULK WAS THEN IN INFINITY WAR, WHERE HE FIGHT BIG PURPLE MAN AND LOST. HULK REFUSES TO FIGHT HIM AGAIN! HULK WOULD CRUSH HIM TOO HARD! HULK NOT AFRAID OF THANOS, HULK SICK OF PUNY BANNER ONLY MAKING HULK FIGHT! HULK NOT JUST WANT TO FIGHT, HULK WANT TO BE ALONE! SMASH NOT WORK NOW, SO HULK GO AWAY! GOOD LUCK BANNER. HULK WAIT UNTIL NEXT AVENGERS! [Bruce Banner: So yeah. I basically warned Tony, Strange and Wong that Thanos was coming to gather the rest of the stones, and had to hide since he refused to come out. I had to seek out Steve and the Vision, alongside Romanoff, Rhodes, and Maximoff. We all agreed to head to Wakanda to allow Shuri to destroy the Mind Stone without killing Vision but then he came. Even now he refused to come out so I used one of Tony's hulkbuster armors to engage with Thanos (even killing Obsidian by sacrificing one of the arms) but then he trapped me in some rocks and killed half the universe before escaping. I was mortified that I also couldn't do anything to Thanos either. Even after going after Thanos on his retirement planet to undo the damage only to see he made it irreversible caused me to realize that if neither he nor I could take on Thanos separately, then maybe we should merge so that it would be a lot easier to deal with such a case.]
[The Professor: And this is where I come in. After talking out our differences during the five year gap, we ultimately found a way to become a single being. This incarnation is based on The Professor persona and Nerd Hulk from The Ultimates. I have Banner's genius and the Hulk's brawn, though it's slightly Nerfed as I lack the raw strength and healing factor of the Savage persona, which is a problem when you're about to use the Infinity Gauntlet to undo Thanos' damage inflicted upon the universe and causing me to not be as helpful for the final battle on Earth. So much that when I checked on Shang Chi's rings, I still have a sling on my arm.]

DECADE ALSO SHOW HULK IN CARTOON STUFF!!! HULK APPEAR IN LITTLE MAN AND MUTANT SHOW AND FIGHT LITTLE MAN! LITTLE MAN CALLED HULK A BEHIND! HULK NOT A BEHIND!!!!!!

And no palette swaps don't count. I finally got one in Infinite but that was a dead game walking.] THOUGH HULK UPSET THAT LITTLE ROBOT MAN AND LITTLE ROBOT GIRL DID NOT APPEAR IN THIRD GAME BUT ROBOT WITH BEAM SWORD TAKE THEIR PLACE. HULK FIND IT FUNNY THAT SHADES MAN THINK HE GOD BECAUSE HE DRANK KNOCKOFF OF FLAGMAN'S TONIC.[Professor: A fact I find highly amusing.

HULK SMASH PUNY TROPES!!!

  • Anti-Hero: HULK SMASH SO MANY THINGS THAT IT NOT ALWAYS A GOOD THING!!!!!
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: HULK SMASH A LOT BUT NEVER HURT INNOCENT! [Bruce Banner: Because even in my extreme rage, I'm subconsciously finding ways to minimize casualities.]
  • Battle Rapping: Bruce Banner: Apparently two guys decided to pit me against Caitlyn Jenner, another "Bruce" with a transformation that is meant to be permanent. From what I heard, she proceeded to drone on and on after the Hulk pointed out that she liked to hog the spotlight.
  • Being Good Sucks: IT NOT MATTER WHAT HULK DO, PUNY HUMANS ALWAYS TURN ON HULK! ZEUS EVEN STATE JUST BEING HULK IS WORSE THAN ANY PUNISHMENT HE CAN DO!

    • YOU NO CALL HULK HUMAN! HUMANS ARE PUNY WEAKLINGS! HULK IS STRONG, STRONGEST OF THEM ALL!
  • Blood Knight: Joe Fixit: If there's one thing all us Hulks have in common, it's that we love to fight and break things. After one team up with The Incredible Hercules in Olympus, Herc said there were two paths we could take to get back to Earth. One path was short and safe, while the other was long and filled with murderous giants. You don't need Banner's smarts to guess which one we chose.
  • Bullying a Dragon:
    • HULK JUST WANT TO BE LEFT ALONE, BUT PEOPLE NOT LEAVE HULK ALONE EVEN THOUGH IT ALWAYS GO BAD FOR THEM!
    • The Green Scar: I found myself with the other end of the trope when I tried to convince Zeus to help my family. I provoked him when he initially refused. I know I had no chance of beating a Skyfather, but I hoped offering myself up would be enough. I was wrong, and the only reason he let Hercules and my family rescue me was because he knew just being the Hulk was worse than any punishment he could come up with.
  • The Brute / The Big Guy: WHEN HULK IS FORCED TO JOIN PUNY HEROES, LITTLE MEN THINK AND HULK SMASH!
  • Catchphrase: HULK SAY "HULK SMASH" AND "HULK STRONGEST THERE IS" A LOT!!!!! HULK ENJOY SMASHING AND BEING BIG AND STRONG!!!!
  • Chick Magnet: HULK SMASH WORLD... AND LADIES! PUNY BANNER HAS BETTY ROSS, BUT HULK HAVE HAREM! ONCE EVEN SHE-HULK GO WITH HULK FOR WHILE! HULK... WE BOTH IN BAD PLACE AT TIME...
  • Children Are Innocent/Friend to All Children: HULK NOT SMASH KIDS. HULK FRIENDLY TO KIDS! THEY NO HARM TO HULK AND PEOPLE!
  • Complete Monster: HULK HATE MAESTRO FOR THIS! MAESTRO TORTURE AND WANT TO NUKE EARTH! EVEN DADDY IS MONSTER! SCARE HULK A LOT!
  • Cooldown Hug: SOMETIMES HULK TOO ANGRY! FRIENDS HUG AND COOL DOWN! HULK LIKE FRIENDS!!!

  • Destructo-Nookie: HULK ONCE SLEPT WITH DARK DIMENSION GIRL! HULK DIDN’T LAST LONG!!! [Green Scar: Yeah. I only lasted 6 minutes. Then I became the Green Scar and I could last longer.]
  • Distaff Counterpart: HULK COUSIN SHE-HULK ALSO HULK. BUT SHE-HULK LESS ANGRY.
  • The Dreaded: HULK NOT MEAN TO SCARE ANYONE, BUT HULK GET MAAADD! YOU NO LIKE WHEN HULK ANGRY! PUNY HUMANS FEAR HULK, BUT HEROES AND FRIENDS TREAT HULK LIKE BAD MAN TOO! THEY KNOW HULK NOT BAD, BUT STILL THEY SEEM SCARED!! EVEN PUNY MADMAN AND HAMMER MAN SCARED OF HULK!!
  • Dumb Muscle: HULK HATE THINKING!!!!! HULK ONLY LIKE SMASHING!!!!! PUNY HUMANS SAY THAT HULK HAS MIND LIKE LITTLE KID OR ANIMAL BUT THAT NOT TRUE, HULK IS BIG STRONG MAN!!!! PUNY HUMANS MAKE HULK TROPE PICTURE TOO! CALL HULK DUMB!!! HULK SMASH PUNY TROPERS!!! GRAAAAARGGHHHHHHH!!!!!
  • Evil Me Scares Me/Future Me Scares Me: HULK SEES MAESTRO IN DYSTOPIA ACT ALL EVIL! HULK SCARED THAT HE COULD BECOME HIM! HULK NO NOT WANT TO BE LIKE HIM! HULK WANT TO BE LOVED!
  • Genius Bruiser:
    • [The Professor: Compared to the raging brute I'm most well-known for being, I am this occasionally in the comics (under my Merged Hulk persona) and in The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes! along with Avengers: Endgame. While not as smart as Banner, my greater intelligence helps me in combat, and I can determine at a glance if certain radiation is cosmic in nature. When I become the Green Scar, I become much more intelligent and much stronger, but am still perpetually angry. Also, my colleagues and I often demonstrate great cunning in determining how to make best use of our strength, or to otherwise come up with intelligent tactics when we have to. Even the Savage Hulk demonstrates this when necessary, although he would never admit it.]
    • Joe Fixit: Hell, it's in my name; throw me at a problem and I'll whip ya up a solution right quick. I know I might not have Banner's academic knowledge and I'm not quite as strong as any of the green fellas, but I still got a pretty solid head on my shoulders and a mean right hook. I'm good at applyin' myself to the fullest, and usin' my strength and smarts in more... let's say creative ways than Banner or the green guy. Helped a lot in the later parts of Immortal Hulk when I left Bruce's soul down there.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: EARTH HATE HULK. HAMMER MAN SAY EARTH LOVE HULK, BUT HAMMER MAN TOO NICE. HULK SAD. [The Professor: As it turns out, Thor was right. I was well loved enough to get a Ben and Jerrys flavor ice cream named Hulk-A-Hulk-A-Burning Fudge. Pretty delicious if you must ask me.]
  • HULK MASH!-Up: HULK SMASH COPY-CATS!!! HULK ONLY ONE THERE IS!!!
  • Hulking Out: HULK NAME TROPE!!! PUNY BANNER TURN INTO HULK WHENEVER HE GET ANGRY!!!
  • Hulk Speak: HULK NAME THIS TROPE TOO!!! HULK HATE GRAMMAR!!! HULK ONLY LIKE SMASHING!!!!! [The Professor: Although I avert this occasionally in the comics and in adaptations such as The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes!. Of course as an obligatory joke, I do briefly engage in it. However, one of the few times this isn't good is when Maestro averts this. It really brings up the creepyness of him.]
  • Legacy Character: HULK COUSIN SHE-HULK IS HULK TOO. AMADEUS CHO ALSO HULK. BUT HULK FIRST HULK! HULK BEST HULK!!! GRAAAAHHH!!!
  • Lightning Bruiser: HULK NOT ONLY STRONG, HULK FAST TOO!!! YOU NOT CATCH UP TO HULK!!! BUT NOT FASTEST ONE THERE IS!!! NOT AS FAST AS PEOPLE LIKE LIGHTNING BOLT MAN OR SILVER HAIR MAN!!!! MAKE HULK ANGRY!!! HULK WANT TO BE FASTEST THERE IS TOO!!!! AAAAARRRRRGHHGHGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
  • Magic Pants: HULK IS NEVER NUDE! AND PUNY BANNER LIKES PURPLE PANTS!
  • Memetic Mutation: PUNY GOD. REINDEER MAN BOAST HE GOD AND HE BETTER THAN HULK. HULK GRAB MID-SENTENCE AND SLAM HIM INTO FLOOR OVER AND SAY LINE. IT FUNNIEST SCENE IN VERY FUNNY MOVIE.note 
  • Misaimed Marketing: PUNY HUMANS MAKE STUPID SINGING BABY TOY OF HULK!!!!! HULK HATE BABY TOY!!!! MAKE HULK LOOK PUNY AND WEAK!!!! HULK SMASH PUNY BABY TOY!!!!! BUT FUNNY TOY MAN MAKE IT FUNNY! FUNNY TOY MAN IS HULK'S FRIEND!
    • SAME PUNY STUPID EXECUTIVE HUMANS MAKE PUNY CD WITH BABY SONGS ABOUT HULK!!!!!! HULK WANT FRIENDS BUT HULK NOT ABOUT PLAYING GAMES AND DANCING AND ROLLERBLADING WITH LITTLE KIDS!!!!! HULK ABOUT BEING ANGRY AND SMASHING AND BEING STRONGEST ONE THERE IS!!!!!!! GRRRRRRAAAARRRRRRGHHHHHHH!!!!! AT LEAST REVIEW FUNNY AGAIN, MAKE HULK LAUGH!!!!!!!
    • OTHER PUNY HUMANS MAKE HULK BOARD GAMES LIKE HULK OPERATION AND HULK "DON'T WAKE DADDY". THEY WORST CHOICES FOR HULK GAME. HULK NOT GET SICK, AND PUNY BANNER HAVE BAD HISTORY WITH "DADDY". HULK SMASH STUPID GAMES AND STUPID HASBRO! ONLY THING DUMB TOYS GET RIGHT IS HULK FRIENDLY TO KIDS AND HULK CAN BE HERO!
  • Mighty Glacier: STUPID BALANCE IN FIGHTING GAMES MEAN RATHER THAN JUST BEING STRONG AND FAST, HULK JUST STRONG!
  • Mugging the Monster: [The Professor: While most of the time people really try to attack me or my other selves even though they know they won't survive (and sometimes, they really tried attacking Bruce not knowing he's the Hulk), there was this one time when Frank West tried hunting down Joe Fixit, not knowing that he and I share the same body. I quickly poked him on the forehead to knock him out.]
  • The Nicknamer: HULK PREFERS MAKING OWN NAMES FOR PUNY PEOPLE!
  • No Indoor Voice: HULK USE SAME VOICE INSIDE AS OUTSIDE!!!
  • "No More Holding Back" Speech: HULK FINALLY GET TO CUT LOOSE IN THAT OTHER AVENGERS CARTOON WHEN HULK GET TO SMASH HULKED-OUT ENEMIES!
  • OOC Is Serious Business: IN FINAL HULK STORY, HULK FINALLY GET TO BE ALONE! HULK FINALLY STRONGEST THERE IS! BUT... HULK... FEELS... cold...
  • Papa Wolf: [Devil Hulk: My reintroduction in Immortal Hulk? I basically calmly told a robber that he just murdered Sandra Ann Brockhurst, a twelve-year-old girl, before dealing with him so badly that it's just better that I leave it at that. He's never going to walk again... if he does wake up from that.]

  • Split-Personality Takeover: HULK WISH HE COULD BE IN CHARGE OF PUNY BANNER 24/7 SO THAT HULK CAN SMASH AS MUCH AS HE LIKE! ALTHOUGH IN BEST AVENGERS CARTOON PUNY BANNER AND HULK AGREED PROVIDED HULK TRY BECOME HERO AND HE COME OUT ONE DAY A MONTH TO GO FISHING!
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: HULK IS USUALLY WISE GUY. SOMETIMES PLAY STRAIGHT MAN, LIKE IN BEST AVENGERS CARTOON.
    • [The Professor: In Avengers: Endgame I played the Straight Man to Thor's Wise Guy. Failing to stop Thanos led to him falling into a depression while denying it all, while letting himself go thanks to his drinking].
  • Strong as They Need to Be: HULK'S STRENGTH NO HAVE LIMITS! CAN GO AS HIGH AS HULK NEED IT TO, AS LONG AS HULK GET MAD ENOUGH!
  • Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny: IN THIRD SEASON OF INTERNET FIGHTING SHOW, HULK GET TO FIGHT GREY SPIKE MONSTER CALLED DOOMSDAY AND SEE WHO SMASHES BETTER!
