** The title of the movie, "Mewtwo Strikes Back," appears just after Mewtwo says that it is not declaring war on humans, but simply ''striking back at them'' in the original version. The dub changes it to Mewtwo saying that he won't allow humans and Pokémon being alike.

* PsychopathicManchild: Some fans of Mewtwo's Japanese incarnation have likened him to a scared, confused and angry child, placing him in types B and C of the trope. His motives basically amount to a psychic-powered temper-tantrum (albeit one that is not entirely unjustified) as a result of his mistreatment and even some of his dialogue is childish in some aspects, saying "Don't tell me what to do!" when Ash and co. confront him on taking their Pokémon. The English dub averts this, glossing over most, if not all, of Mewtwo's childish mannerisms from the Japanese version.

* StatusQuoIsGod: Pretty much the entire ending where Mewtwo ''erases everybody's memory'' of the events on the island.

** Easily all of the trainers who elected to brave the storm, endangering their own lives for a Pokemon battle and making themselves Mewtwo's unwitting pawns for world domination.

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Mewtwo to Nurse Joy; downplayed in that he simply lifts her from his mind control instead of killing her (although given his [[OmnicidalManiac intentions for...the world, pretty much]] (in the dub, at least), it seems he was going to kill her along with all the other humans once he had the chance). He even says this trope nearly word-for-word in the dub.

* PsychicPowers: Mewtwo displays extremely potent psychic abilities of all kinds. Its [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]] can [[WeatherManipulation whip up a huge storm]], repel all forms of attack, and carry dozens of pokémon (some of which are quite heavy) at a time. It overpowers an Alakazam, which are known for their immense psychic power, in a psychic battle while at Giovanni's gym. It speaks to others {{telepath|y}}ically, and can [[MeatPuppet suppress people's minds to make them do its bidding and speak through them]]. It's also able to [[LaserGuidedAmnesia erase events from people's memories]].

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Mewtwo conspired to bring a world dominated by a master race (clones, in his case), wished to purge the world of members of a race he despises (humans, as well as non-clone Pokemon), and his villainy is caused by a tragic backstory.
