* 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]].

* 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.

Embryos X-1 through X-22 X-22, in addition to the unknown number of male embryos, die in various stages of development before the viable X-23 clone is created.

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.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: The Facility surgeons assigned to bond X-23's claws with adamantium objected when Rice refused to let them administer an anesthetic. Unfortunately their protests fell on deaf ears, as he kicked them all out and did the procedure himself.

* 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.]]

* FlashbackCut: A dramatic example [[spoiler: as X-23 delivers a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on Rice, cutting between her beating him to a bloody pulp and memories of the abuse he inflicted on her, making it clear that ItsPersonal]].

* 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.]]
