* ShooOutTheClowns: It didn't appear much to begin with (though the short film more than makes up for that), but Togepi ends up hidden away in Misty's backpack while the other Pokemon are being stolen by Mewtwo. By the time it comes back out, Mewtwo has already been redeemed and is leaving. Seemingly lampshaded by the way Misty looks at it afterward, implying that she forgot it was there. Averted with Team Rocket, who remain part of the plot (and funny) throughout the film.

* RestrainingBolt: Kinda-sorta-not-really. The armor serves its purpose (hey, Mewtwo didn't ''kill'' the trainers' Pokémon) up until Giovanni told Mewtwo exactly what his purpose was after Giovanni found him. Then Mewtwo goes [[KurtVonnegut Harrison Bergeron]] on the restraints and blows up Team Rocket's base.

* LostInTranslation: The English dub translation completely changes the character of Mewtwo. Originally, Mewtwo was less outright evil, and more confused and lost than anything else. 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.

Given that the movie was targeted more towards kids in the West, Mewtwo's arc was meant to be a lot more simple to understand; hence the reason why its negative qualities are dialed UpToEleven before it undergoes as HeelFaceTurn.
