- Hey! Yeah, you! I'm down here busting my ass while you sit on yours watching me jump around?! How is that fair?!
- -- Deadpool
Deadpool's first appearance was battling Dante in a building. Later, with the appearance of Galactus and dangerous villains determined to conquer both the Marvel and Capcom worlds, Deadpool ceased battling Dante and turned his attention to stopping the villains.
Deadpool's ending involves him holding a celebration party with everyone who partook in taking down Galactus. Eventually, Deadpool crashes Galactus' worldship into Cleveland, destroying the entire city. Police then issue arrest warrants for both Deadpool and the player.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Seemingly those of Wade Wilson (Earth-616)#Powers
Katana, firearms, shuriken, grenades
- He is the most notable Marvel character who breaks the fourth wall. The most notable Capcom equivalent would be Captain Commando.
- He was confirmed early May via the Game Informer's May 2010 issue, also featuring Captain America, Dante and Felicia.
- When moving away from his opponent, Deadpool will do the moonwalk, which can be seen as a tribute to the recently-deceased Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, who died on June 25, 2009. Another nod to Michael Jackson (whom Deadpool once disguised himself as at one point in the comics) is that when Deadpool is hit, he sometimes shouts "OWW!" in the same manner.
- In addition to moonwalking, Deadpool's forward walk is a large strut, a possible nod to the "Haters gonna Hate" internet meme.
- In the comics, he used the Shoryuken move on X-Man Kitty Pride (who didn't phase as she didn't see it coming) to provoke Wolverine into fighting him for his amusement. In Marvel vs. Capcom 3, he uses his Shoryuken as a launcher for starting air combos.
- When the player switches back to Deadpool, he would strike martial arts poses while facing away from his opponent; he would quickly realize that he's facing the wrong way and would turn to his opponent.
- When launching the "4th-Wall Crisis" Hyper Combo on his opponent, he makes a reference to Betty Boop by saying "Boop-boop-be-doop". His sexy pose is also a reference to Betty Boop's risque nature.
- Deapool seems to be rivals with Dante due to their many similarities. They are both wisecracking mercenaries who wear red and black, fight using swords and guns, both have regenerative abilities, and the fact that they both have names starting with the letter "D" is a bonus coincidence. Accentuating this, both of their theme songs in the game are of the lyrical rock music variety, which no other characters share thus far.
- In Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Deadpool is voiced by Nolan North, who previously voiced him in Hulk Vs. and the Ultimate version of him in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.
- In the Character Profile menu on the game Marvel vs. Capcom 3, after beating the game with Deadpool and seeing his profile, his name stated as "Unknown" rather than Wade Wilson. This is because there is some confusion as to whether Deadpool is Wade W. Wilson as he claims, or Wade T. Wilson, a person who his archenemy T-Ray claims he stole his identity from. However, Deadpool's actual identity continues to be a mystery, as T-Ray was also mentally deranged when he confronted Deadpool with his "revelation" so the word of either characters cannot be fully trusted.
- Despite this, his profile calls him Wade.
- His win pose shows him trash-talking the player, ranting about him "busting [his] ass while you (the player) sit on yours watching [him] jump around". Like Wesker, Shuma-Gorath, Super Skrull, and Jill Valentine, he can break the Fourth Wall but to a much more amusing and frequent extent.
- Deadpool's lines were changed in several released gameplay previews. While using his submachineguns, he used to say "I love me some guns!", and when he throws a grenade, he used to say "Pineapple!" In the newest gameplay videos released, he keeps "Pineapple!" but now says "Have guns, will shoot!" when using his SMGs. This is quite a buzzkill for the fans, for many liked to mix the two lines, ending up with a comical "I love me some--Pineapple!" Another is his Happy-Happy Trigger Hyper Combo quote, which before was "Bang! Bang! Bang!..." now changed to "I hear bullets taste just like chicken". However, the finished retail build has reverted Deadpool's Hyper Combo line back to "Bang! Bang! Bang!..." but retains his Trigger Happy attack line of "Have guns, will shoot!".
- Deadpool is shown to possess a yellow-and-blue alternate costume with an "X" on the right side of his chest, referencing an alternate universe where Deadpool was recruited as a "modified" human member of the X-Men and wore that costume.
- When Deadpool activates his X-factor, he shouts "Anime Power-Up Time!", most likely referring to the anime power up cliche and a person's tendency to shout something absurd before being surrounded with some field of energy.
- After Deadpool performs his "It's Cuttin' Time" Hyper Combo on an opponent, he will hum "Marvelous!" in reference to the announcer shouting it after a particularly lengthy combo. Unfortunately, the announcer only shouts "Cool" immediately after Deadpool hums "Marvelous!" (That is, unless Deadpool combos into the hyper with the amount of hits needed to make the announcer say "Marvelous!")
- If Deadpool starts off against Magneto, he will reference Magneto's famous "Welcome to Die" line from the X-Men Arcade game. Also, if he defeats Magneto, he will make references to the famous "Mahvel Baybee!" viral video.
- One of Deadpool's notable moves is a throw that has him plunging his two katana swords into his opponent's feet, nailing them to the ground, then shooting them in the head (teleporting behind them first, if performing a back-throw)
- Deadpool's Cuttin' Time Hyper Combo was once called Rock the Ripper, being a reference to the infamous serial killer, Jack the Ripper.
- The speech bubble that appears during his taunt does a small amount of damage if it hits his opponent. This is similar to Chun-Li's taunt, which can also hit and damage opponents in many Vs. Capcom installments, only that Chun-Li cannot K.O. the opponent with it while Deadpool can (even Galactus can be K.O.'d).
- Unlike other characters whose taunts feature a speech bubble (Spider-Man for example) Deadpool's features his own stylized yellow text bubble which has been associated with him in the comics.
- In the promotional comic, Deadpool's speech bubbles are white rather than the usual yellow.
- Deadpool's victory speech against Wolverine mentions his portrayal as Weapon XI in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, stating that he "didn't even need optic blasts", which an inaccurately portrayed Deadpool has in the movie.
- Deadpool's theme has a noticeable 90's feel to it, somewhat parodying his creator, Rob Liefeld, whom was, during that time, considered one of the greatest comic book artists, but also notorious for his artstyle and habits which tended to include, but not limited to, an absurd amount of seldom or never-utilized pouches (which is exaggerated upon his purposefully parodic alternate outfit, "Cablepool", available for download in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3) as well as using words associated with 'death' for superhero names.
- Though Deadpool is classified as a mutant by Sentinel and Jill Valentine during their pre-fight dialogue, it must be noted that Deadpool is NOT a mutant as he was not "gifted" with his powers from simple conception like Phoenix or Wolverine because of any unusual gene structure. Like Captain America, Hulk, Spider-Man, or Taskmaster (to a very minor extent), Deadpool was born as and grew up to be a normal human, only receiving his powers from external factors under outrageous or specially engineered circumstances. In Deadpool's case, he received his powers when he was genetically augmented with a modified form of Wolverine's healing factor that bound itself to his cancerous body. Thus, Deadpool is better classified as a "modified human" (other terms include "mutate" or a "mutated human").
- Considering that he's a psychotic mercenary, he is of the Chaotic Neutral axis (e.g. someone who helps either good or evil, depending on which suits him at the time).
- Deadpool's new pre-battle quote to Spider-Man, "Gonna rough you up like a Broadway musical." is a reference to the Spider-Man Broadway musical accident, in which the actor portraying Spider-Man fell from the rope he was hanging from, forcing him to be rushed to the hospital.
- Deadpool's presumed Capcom rivals are:
- Nathan "RAD" Spencer: Opposite sides of the character roster.
- Dante: Seen fighting in the first trailer.
- Phoenix Wright: Seen Shooting and "Surfing" on his "OBJECTION!" Bubble
