Poll: Who is more annoying? Tiny Tina or Deadpool? (415 votes)

Tiny Tina 53%
DeadPool 47%

All credit where credit is due. @mattbodega posed this question on twitter and it seemed like the perfect question for a Giantbomb poll. This is a close one both are so fucking irritating that it makes my eyes want to bleed but in the end for me Tiny Tina is by far the more annoying one. Deadpool is at least voiced by Nolan North who's voice is way way less annoying than the performance that Ashley Birch gives as Tiny Tina. Discuss.

Well I must be the only duder that doesn't find Tiny Tina annoying. Voting Deadpool just cuz of Wolverine: Origins.

Got to go with Tina on this one, I couldn't stand that smart mouth little brat...

Tina... she seems like a Niki Minaj ripoff but even more annoying.

#4 Edited by MideonNViscera (2257 posts) -

They're both terrible examples of comedy, but at least Deadpool was funny once upon a time.

#5 Posted by Nonused (215 posts) -

Which Deadpool?

#6 Edited by ArbitraryWater (11741 posts) -

I think Deadpool has the potential to be funny in the right context with the right writers, but I can't say the same for Tiny Tina... or really any Borderlands character for that matter.

I thought Tiny Tina was an alright character, so I guess there's two duders.

I don't read comic books and haven't watched the quick look yet, so with zero point of reference for this Deadpool guy, I guess I vote C.

Deadpool has had his moments. Tina has not.

Anybody wanna post a "highlights" video for each one? I want me decision to be as informed as possible.

#10 Posted by Zeik (2441 posts) -

I think both are pretty hit or miss characters, but I found Tiny Tina to hit more than miss and Deadpool tends to miss more than hit.

I can't really comprehend why anyone would have such strong feelings one way or the other toward those characters though. I'm sure it's just the hyperbolic nature of the internet, but the reaction people have to these kinds of characters is pretty stupid.

I'm gonna have to assume Deadpool. Neither of them have done anything that has annoyed me yet, but there's a lot of Deadpool content out there so there's probably something he's in that I'd find annoying, making him the winner by default.

Anthony Burch's "writing".

Both have their ups and downs. This latest Deadpool game seems to be a down, yo.

#17 Posted by Spitznock (537 posts) -

Deadpool by leaps and bounds. Tiny Tina may be annoying, but she's annoying in a "best friends little sister" sort of way, and not a "please laugh at my jokes you guys, i'm trying so hard to be funny" sort of way, which is how Deadpool seems to me.

#18 Posted by TheElliotBee (57 posts) -

You.

#19 Edited by Nux (2360 posts) -

Deadpool no question. I don't mind tiny Tina.

#20 Posted by SomeJerk (3251 posts) -

Deadpool (this version) is deranged, he's stuck like that.

Tiny Tina will grow out most of it eventually.

Deadpool is immortal, so he's really stuck like that.

Tiny Tina isn't immortal. The world can be saved.

#21 Edited by kishinfoulux (2309 posts) -

Uh neither? Hell take a look at Infamous if you want annoying, awful characters.

#22 Posted by ManiacalMech (59 posts) -

Yeah, no shit the psychologically insane asshole is going to be annoying. I get that. That's why Deadpool doesn't bother me. He is designed to be that way. In fact, he's pretty funny in Cable and Deadpool.

Tiny Tina is just Ashly Burch: The character. An adaptation of her own unfunny writing, only in Borderlands 2 because of her brother's connections into Gearbox. That's the most astounding part of it all. That if Burch were related to anyone else, Tiny Tina wouldn't be in Borderlands.

Id save up money for Borderlands 3 right is they just come out and say "Borderlands 3 wont use a single meme"

What would be hilarious is for Borderlands 3 to come out and suddenly its super serious and examining the morality of war and violence and the atrocities of mankind in a really somber and serious tone. That would be the best fucking joke borderlands could ever possibly make.

#24 Posted by Reisz (1497 posts) -

I was actually way into the original Deadpool material, so the evolution of the character has always been a bit of a bummer. I haven't played Borderlands 2 and that new trailer doesn't bother me at all so I'm going with Deadpool all the way.

#25 Posted by Lexus2jz (92 posts) -

Going with Deadpool, at least Tiny Tina made me laugh.

O...okay.

#27 Posted by Jrinswand (1709 posts) -

Deadpool, for sure. I just dislike everything about that character.

#28 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

I like both, so sue me.
I can safely say that because "hahahahahahahahaha, suuure" at the thought of any of you having enough money to sue me. I laugh (and fart) in your general directions!

#29 Posted by JoeyRavn (4974 posts) -

Tiny Tina. Deadpool's portrayal is consistent with his personality in the comics. The game is nothing but mediocre, sure, but at least it's what Deadpool is all about.

Tina Tiny was written that way. Let that sink in for a few minutes: Anthony Burch purposefully and totally seriously wrote her sister's character that way. Yeah.

#30 Posted by Veiasma (194 posts) -

Deadpool was never funny.

#31 Posted by Slay3r1583 (613 posts) -

I didn't make it far enough into into Borderlands 2 to get to Tiny Tina.

I can say from experience that Deadpool has never been a good character.

@zeforgotten: You don't have to have money to sue someone just the legal grounds to do so. See you in court. ;D

Of course you do, you're gonna lose! :P
You're gonna get fined for wasting the courts time!
Bring your best lawyer!.. the lawyer who apparantly isn't very good, considering she/he's free :P

#34 Posted by mosespippy (4185 posts) -

Tiny Tina is a brat but she's still the most original character in Borderlands 2.

#35 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4351 posts) -

I guess Tina? I'm assuming that Deadpool is only godawful when he's trying to be funny outside of comic books.

Though keep Claptrap the same, and make everyone despise him for it.

"Claptrap, stop fucking dancing. We need to distribute food rations to people here."

I feel they both suffer from trying too hard to get laughs, making everything else suffer. That can be said for all of the writing in Borderlands 2, not just Tiny Tina.

#39 Posted by jimmy_p (278 posts) -

I'm sorry, but if I see someone mention that they actually like TT, I must concede that such person has an infantile/ childish sense of humour.

#40 Posted by Turkalurch (198 posts) -

Tiny Tina and her area were probably my favorite parts of Borderlands 2 (besides Handsome Jack's commentary throughout the game). So that being said I don't find her annoying at all.

Now DeadPool on the other hand... So I'm not familiar whatsoever with the DeadPool character in comic form at all, but having watched that quicklook today, I can say the writing for that character in that game is just not my cup of tea. I love the idea of breaking the 4th wall in media, but that game just isn't doing it for me. I do plan on picking up the game in the future when it's on a 75%-80% steam sale or something to give it a full run through, but till then, gonna have to say that character is annoying as hell. On the flip side, Nolan North has fantastic acting range man. I mean damn, who would of thought the guy that voiced Nathan Drake could sound like that. And then acting as 3 different personalities for one character on top of it. Good for him.

Yay, another "we hate Tiny Tina" thread, havent seen one of those in a while.

#42 Posted by I_Stay_Puft (3398 posts) -

I bet there is a real Tiny Tina out there who's never heard of Borderlands 2 before and she's probably crying her eyes out right now.

#43 Posted by Ghostiet (5280 posts) -

Deadpool is a great comic book character that only recently has sunk into the "obnoxious random humor" hole.

#44 Edited by EvilNiGHTS (1093 posts) -

Ah, but what if Tiny Tina was voiced by Nolan North?

#45 Edited by WarlordPayne (700 posts) -

Eh, I thought Tina was alright, especially in comparison to the rest of the cast of Borderlands 2. She was far from the most annoying character in that game. Not even in the top ten. Hell, Tannis, Lilith, and Hammerlock are about the only characters in that game that aren't constantly annoying.

Deadpool, based on the quick look anyway, tries way too hard to be funny and falls flat every single time, which I find more annoying than anything Tina does.

#46 Edited by Kyelb22 (297 posts) -

I like both...

Does that make me a bad person?

#47 Edited by wewantsthering (1567 posts) -

Tiny Tina is great. Deadpool is dumb.

#48 Posted by cbk486 (181 posts) -

I had no idea that anybody disliked Tiny Tina that much until I came to this website.
