* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: Though Elektra first appeared in ''Daredevil'', the film explores her own story that is similar yet different from Matt's. Both are about a character who wears red who's life went downhill after a parent's death. Matt was self taught in his fighting by "watching" his father and using his senses since he was 12. Elektra, before her death, was taught by a different sensei each year since she was 5 and developed her powers as part of her ressurection as an adult. Both are still haunted by their parents' deaths and learn though a seemingly unrelated situation involving a mercenaries and protecting a parent and daughter from them who the killer is. Matt failed to save Elektra and her father, while Elektra only barely saved Abby with those same mystical abilities. Matt decided Wilson Fisk wasn't worth killing, [[spoiler:Elektra doesn't give Kirigi the same treatment as she had become a professional assassin instead of a hero]].

* TheCameo: In a deleted scene, Ben Affleck appears as Matt Murdock in Elektra's dream. It would be the last time he'd ever play Matt Murdock.



** Kingpin and Roshi are each a CorruptCorporateExecutive and are the ManBehindTheMan. Although unlike Kingpin, Roshi does not get involved in a fight with Elektra, being too busy leading The Hand from Japan.
** Bullseye and Kirigi are both mercenaries who murdered one of Elektra's parents. Bullseye was an Irish LargeHam who loves murder and tries to accost Elektra during their fight while Kirigi is stoic, showing no attraction to Elektra. Bullseye was bald and wore an all black leather ensemble, Kirigi has long hair and wore a white martial arts gi. Both do manage to get under her skin by bringing up their murdered loved ones, but the only main difference in the end is [[spoiler: Kirigi ends up getting gutted]].
