* [[spoiler: WhosYourDaddy]]: [[spoiler: It's made clear right from the beginning that Martin Sutter's wife, Rachel, knows that she is pregnant with Rice's son, but Rice violently forces her to agree not to reveal this to Sutter. Sutter subsequently raises the boy, Henry, as his own, ignorant of the truth. It doesn't end well when Rachel decides to confess. Before she can do so Rice unleashes X-23 on the family to silence her, eliminate the boy, and secure his control over the project. Martin and Rachel are killed, but X-23 can't bring herself to murder Henry and spares him.]]

* WoundedGazelleGambit: Laura's entry strategy for her first assassination mission is to masquerade as a disabled girl with crutches and leg braces. She approaches her target, a presidential candidate, and when his security attempts to deny her request to meet him she throws a crying fit, which eventually draws the attention of her target's wife. ''Target X'' would reveal this was also her ''exit'' strategy, by masquerading as a victim of the very same massacre she carried out.

* InfantImmortality: Both averted and played straight. Embryos X-1 through X-22 die in various stages of development before the viable X-23 clone is created. X-23's test mission involves the assassination of a presidential candidate, his family, and ''everyone in the room''. It's made perfectly clear that she killed children in the rampage. [[spoiler: Played straighter when she is sent to kill Martin Sutter, his wife, and his son Henry. Though she kills Sutter and his wife, she chooses to spare Henry. This later proves a key part of her character development. Later, when turned loose by Sarah to destroy the Facility, she destroys embryos X-24 through 50]].

to:

* HoneyTrap: X-23 uses herself as one to rescue Sarah's niece, Megan, who has been kidnapped. Her target is a ''pedophile''. X disguises herself as a Girl Scout to draw his attention and lull him into letting down his guard to complete the rescue.

Although not X-23's first appearance in the comics (which occurred in ''ComicBook/{{NYX}}''), ''Innocence Lost'' allowed the character's creators, Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost, to establish her background within the context of the main Earth-616 universe. The miniseries remains one of X-23's most well-regarded stories.

* AnyoneCanDie: [[spoiler: Holy crap. Sarah, Rice and Sutter, Sarah's bodyguard Kevin, Rachel Sutter, X-23's sensei Tanaka. The cast isn't a large one, but that's more than half the main cast, and not even getting into candidate Johnson, his family and the entire rest of the room he's with, Dale Rice, the dozens of mooks X-23 kills, and what little we see of her missions.]]

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Rice falls in love with this trope. [[spoiler: He decides to off Sutter, his ''father figure'', just so he can gain control of the project for himself when Sutter expresses misgivings and exhaustion. As an added bonus, he can rid himself of his inconvenient mistress--Sutter's ''wife''--when she threatens to tell her husband that his son Henry is actually ''Rice's'' son at the same time. He then pulls this on Sarah by contaminating her with the Trigger Scent, intending for X-23 to kill ''her'' as well.]]
