* NeverTrustATrailer: The first Japanese trailer for the movie is quite infamous for this. It consisted almost entirely of {{Missing Trailer Scene}}s that never made it into the actual movie, the most well-known of which depicted what appeared to be a DistantFinale focusing on a grown-up Misty and a suspiciously familiar-looking child.

* GreaterScopeVillain: Giovanni.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Mewtwo's belief. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that he had only really dealt with a few humans: the scientists who made him, and [[BigBad Giovanni]]. He might not have even thought so about the scientists if he'd had more perspective on them and not started destroying everything a minute after birth.[[note]]Notably, the main scientist was only into cloning so that he could find some way to bring his daughter Amber back from the dead. Before all the problems and destruction, Mewtwo had communicated with the attempted Amber clone telepathically, but she wasn't strong enough to survive the cloning process like Mewtwo was. Mewtwo certainly didn't have a problem with ''her''. Unfortunately, thanks to a serum the scientists injected into him when he was distraught over her death, [[LaserGuidedAmnesia he can't even remember her.]][[/note]]

to:

* GreaterScopeVillain: Giovanni.
Giovanni is the head of Team Rocket, the criminal organization of the ''Pokémon'' world. He's downright evil and is a bigger menace in the setting as a whole, but he's mostly uninvolved in the current story. He only contributes to the immediate conflict indirectly, in his role as part of Mewtwo's backstory.

[[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that he had it only really dealt deals with a few humans: humans before the main plot: the scientists who made him, it, Giovanni, who tricks Mewtwo and [[BigBad Giovanni]]. He treats it as his slave, and Team Rocket {{mooks}}, who generally think of pokémon that way. Mewtwo might not have even thought so about the scientists if he'd it'd had more perspective on them and not started destroying everything a minute after birth.[[note]]Notably, the main scientist was only into cloning so that he could find some way to bring his daughter Amber back from the dead.

* InconsistentDub: When the scientists manage to calm down Mewtwo before he awakes in the lab, Dr. Fuji shouts that his daughter is gone forever, since her clone died. However, it is clearly stated before that Fuji was cloning her as many times as he wanted to until making a successful clone.
** Mewtwo's questioning everything about himself from the original version was left in the dub, but some lines were changed to make Mewtwo say that he is stronger than Mew. He still didn't know almost anything about himself at that point, so there is no way he could know that or even believe it if he was so confused.
** The title of the movie, "Mewtwo Strikes Back" appears just after Mewtwo says that he is not declaring war on humans, but just simply ''strike back at them'' in the original version. The dub changes it to Mewtwo saying that he won't allow humans and Pokémon being alike.
** While in the series it is heavily implied that Jessie can't and won't cook at all, a rewritten line in the movie has her offering to cook something.

** In the dub, after the explosion near the castle's battlefield, Mewtwo says that "his clones shall inherit the world" as they get out from the laboratory, inconsistent with his confused and worried expression. This is because in the original he asked what happened, since the explosion was clearly unexpected.

* IronicEcho: When Nurse Joy is taken out of her trance, the first thing she says is "Where am I? And how in the world did I get here?". Sounds kind of similar to Mewtwo's feelings early in the movie when he's first brought into the world. Probably just a coincidence though.

He was a tragic character, [[AlasPoorVillain audiences were supposed to feel sorry for him]]. Mewtwo had no intentions of using the storm to destroy humanity, it was merely a method to filter out weaker trainers. The genetic Pokémon simply wanted to prove that as a clone, he was equal, if not stronger, than any original Pokémon.

It should be noted that this Pokémon movie is one of the few that has been alluded to in the actual series,[[note]]Aside from minor exceptions like the ''Anime/{{Pokemon 2000}}'' reference in the Whirl Islands Lugia arc, Drew's Hometown being the main setting of Movie 7 and having its plot mentioned in a 2-part episode, Ash's Aura from movie 8, which comes up a few times in DP, or Dawn possessing the Cresselia Feather that she got in Movie 10 during the Darkrai arc[[/note]] having plot elements set up throughout the first season of the show. Furthermore there is a made-for-television sequel called ''Anime/PokemonMewtwoReturns'' that continues the plotline and themes.

** This creates an odd moment at the end of the movie. While the American version goes with the "fighting is wrong" {{Aesop}}, they forgot to change Mewtwo's dialogue, so the moment where he learns his lesson, he states that it doesn't matter how you're born, but how you live your life that matters. If they were willing to keep that line of dialogue in, why not just keep the original {{Aesop}} altogether?
