* CulturedBadass: An alternate cover for ''All-New Wolverine'' #20 shows Laura and Gabby napping on a couch while reading ''Theater/{{MacBeth}}'', while her mother read to her from ''Literature/TheArtOfWar'' when she was a child, and she's a polyglot who speaks at ''least'' English, French, Japanese, and Russian. Laura is also known to [[SmartPeoplePlayChess play chess]], and during the Liu series suggests she's ''quite'' good.

* BizzareSexualDimorphism: Her claw arrangement was intended to be this according to WordOfGod, with her foot claws specifically designed to be a trait of females with the same mutation as Logan. As described by Craig Kyle, the concept was that of a lioness; front claws for hunting prey, rear claws for self-defense.



* MeaningfulName: Although frequently cited as the 23rd attempt to clone Wolverine ''period'', WordOfGod confirms the name "X-23" specifically refers to her specifically being the 23rd attempt at a ''female'' clone, after an unknown number of males. Her facility codename therefore derives from "X" from the X chromosome, and "23" for the 23rd attempt.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Although X-23 was first introduced in ''X-Men: Evolution'' and the series continues to have a sizable fanbase, her comics iteration is by ''far'' better known, and tends to influence most other AlternateUniverse versions. For example, her depiction in ''Film/{{Logan}}'' draws significantly from ''Comicbook/InnocenceLost'' and ''Target X''.

X-23 was created by the Weapon X offshoot known as the Facility,[[note]]Comicbook/{{HYDRA}} in ''Evolution''[[/note]] using a damaged sample of Comicbook/{{Wolverine}}'s DNA. The damage was greatest on the Y chromosome, so Dr. Deborah Risman in ''Evolution'', and the similar Dr. Sarah Kinney in the comics, eventually had the brilliant idea to create [[OppositeSexClone a female copy instead]] by duplicating the X chromosome. At last the 23rd attempt to clone Weapon X was successful, thus X-23. Sarah Kinney notes X-23 is technically a genetic twin rather than a true clone, more accurately making her Logan's sister. He later introduces her to her classmates at Xavier's this way, although they share more of a father-daughter relationship.

Added DiffLines:

* NotAllowedToGrowUp: WordOfGod from Craig Kyle is that this was the plan: Because Laura's healing factor was activated at such an early age, she would remain a child much longer than normal. While still technically in effect thanks to ComicBookTime, it was still averted when Joe Quesada aged her up to a teenager in ''NYX''.

** The "Trigger Scent" is a very literal but olfactory version of this. It's also a more traditional button, as she really doesn't like what it does to her.
