(Life bar AND Hyper bar! Just sayin'.)

Paine said on February 4, 2011 at 6:47 a.m.

I love me some... PINEAPPLES! I hope he has more sayings from the early builds then the later builds.

For his Level 3 Hyper he actually stuns them with his Health Bar, hits them with his Hyper Bar, and "home run"s them with the same bar.

4-th Wall Crisis! Thats an awesome name for the ultra.

chainsawww said on February 7, 2011 at 3:34 p.m.

I am going to be sad if I buy this game and not be able to do I loooove me some PINEAPPLE!

That's one of the things that I was waiting for since such a long time ago, and then they change what he says.

a few things that make dead pool one his taunt is funny he says this is my taunt or taunt button. two his heavy kick he some times say YO MAMA ! three of after he does his three bar ultra he say that was the hyper combo. @4 i am not sure if you can do that, i have tried to do it but can't,and if you can it is one of three things one i can't do it two i don't know how to do it three it is not i the game :(

magictroll said on February 17, 2011 at 4:04 p.m.

earthboundkid22, your comment is SO hard to understand I don't know where to start ....

DeadlyMoves said on February 18, 2011 at 8:15 p.m.

OMG?! Capcom f*cking ruined my beloved Deadpool. :(
They got his humour spot on, but his moves are sh*t. He could have been sooo much better...

herrokitty said on February 20, 2011 at 6:59 p.m.

Just so everyone knows, the motions shown on here for 4th Wall Crisis are wrong. It has the same motions as a Shoryuken. @15 Deadpool is actually a pretty good competitor once you learn how to use him.

shadow050 said on February 22, 2011 at 8:57 a.m.

@ 15

why do you say his moves suck? deadpool is awesome on MVC3. MY only complaints on him are:
1) his health seems on the lower side - which doesn't make sense from the point of view of his comic character... considering how well and how much he recovers. one would expect this durability to be evident in his health meter, but i can understand why his health is low. (same can and should be said of wolverine)
2) his "bio" in MVC3 lol... yeah, a complaint about something NOT "gameplay" related lol. the stats just seem questionable... esp if you compare them to his character stats on lol... but w/e.

in short, my complaints on him are next to nothing.

the only time i can have a legit "complaint" is when i start comparing his damage output to some of the others... and that's not a knock on deadpool, it's a WTF @ the other characters inflicting so much damn damage!!

shadow050 said on February 22, 2011 at 8:58 a.m.


good job noting that error in the directions. also, the description says he finishes them off with the life bar, but it's actually the hyper meter :-P

DuckWithAGun said on February 25, 2011 at 10:05 a.m.

There is a move that isnt opn the actual command list and that i cant do consistantly but its where he leaps in the air and throws weapons ... how do you actualy do this?

I think its L for stars, M for a bolar and H for grenades ... any help?

Endgame said on March 1, 2011 at 8:15 p.m.

#19, do the motion for his guns, but press the button quickly twice
(ex. quarter circle +LL)

L = Stars
M = Grenades(Pineapples)
H = Bola thingy (stuns opponent for a moment)

ShadowDragonNinja said on March 8, 2011 at 5:15 p.m.

Do you know he does a moonwalk like MJ?

Here the video:

Katana-Rama FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

shadow050 said on November 18, 2011 at 9:16 a.m.


Deadpool should be stronger -_-

shadow050 said on November 18, 2011 at 4:34 p.m.

hey guys, i just realized that the quick as the wind combo can be done without cr m attack before standing hk, and that you can start it from just QATW H, and possibly M.
