About "Asexual: Word of God states Daken doesn't actually care for sex, he just uses it as a way to manipulate people." Is this still accurate? Marjorie Liu calls him bisexual/omnisexual and says that he likes sex in this vid. Also he is drawn with a porn magazine in his hand and his relationship with Agent Kim looks sincere in Wolverines.

Also was it ever confirmed/denied that he raped the surviving goon in Daken Dark Wolverine #1? (I remember fans fighting over this a long time ago)

And lastly: Shouldn't we just delete Killed Off For Real?

Any time someone lists Killed Off for Real on a Comic Book character's page I sigh.

He is stated to be bi multiple times, sabertooth says to him at one point "you aren't pan, you're a pirate" I assume that means pansexual. I don't think it was ever confirmed he raped that henchman, I remember all the arguments on both sides. It was kind of suggested but left up to imagination.

...why does this page even exist? Daken's not even that notable a character in the Marvel Universe. Besides which, he's basically Sabretooth Lite. With that said, Sabretooth should have gotten a page way before him. Just saying.

Well, this is a wiki. If you thought Sabretooth deserves a page, why not make one?

Question, in the light of his drug use, addiction and subsequent Art Shift, what would be appropriate? Fantastic Drug, since Heat is a comic designer drug and not IRL? Or something else - or is it too little to care about?

Since the drug arc is going to continue until at least issue 17, and therefore serve at least some trope-worthy purpose, I'd say go ahead and put it as either Fantastic Drug. Or possibly a form of MacGuffin, since the drug has served very little purpose in the way of character development, instead serving as a convenient way to keep the plot moving.

Re cut request: Notability is never a factor

It's not about notability, I'm pretty sure we don't give minor characters their own pages - that's what we have character sheets for.

As this article currently stands, all of the information could be moved there as the page is small.

I know this reply comes a decade too late, but he's got his own comic book. There's nothing wrong with troping that comic book.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
