Moved from YMMV
Added DiffLines:
* HighConcept: Woman gets superpowers by accessing the unused 90% of her brain. A cinematic masterpiece this ain't, but it's a fun watch.

* KarmaHoudini: The man in charge of the drug smuggling disappears after his one scene explaining the job to Lucy. Though by the end of the film his operation is in ruins, the cops are likely on his tail, and [[spoiler: Lucy, who has become God in all but name, could more than likely blink him out of his existence with a snap of her (nonexistent) fingers]].

It was a drug-sniffing dog that reacted to the scent of drugs on her
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Lucy takes the wheel from her cop friend when the gangsters are trying to get the [=CPH4=]. She's never driven before, takes the absolute quickest route, and undoubtedly breaks every traffic law known to man in the process. Thanks to her powers, however, she doesn't hit a single car doing it. [[spoiler: Rather, ''her'' car doesn't hit another vehicle. Lucy smacks other cars around like crazy though.]]

* EvilDetectingDog: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osFJQJRXbKE A dog at Taiwanese customs gets excited by Lucy]], until she looks him off.

* AboveGoodAndEvil: The increased brain function causes Lucy to see the conflicts of humanity as "primitive." Hence, the lessening of her ethical inhibitions. However, it should be noted that while she is ruthlessly pragmatic (murdering a patient who would have died on the table anyway so the surgeon won't be busy), Lucy's intentions are actually directed towards a greater good.

* CosmicHorrorStory: It can be seen as this, [[spoiler:specially considering the HumanoidAbomination Lucy starts to become in the end.]]

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Brain usage fallacies primarily. Drug induced superpowers as well, technically, but that's a gimme.

* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: During her breakout from the Triad holding cell, Lucy was shot. Her only reaction is amusement, as she pulls the bullet out of her shoulder and drop it on a table. Later, she also undergoes abdominal surgery and has a big bag of drugs removed from her without anesthesia. She doesn't even pay attention as she's too busy talking to her mom. In both cases justified, she no longer feels pain and she's starting to develop some mental control over her body including altering her hair length and color. So it's not improbable that she's developed a HealingFactor as well.

* MindScrew: Given how the director [[XMeetsY described the movie as]] "one part ''[[TheProfessional Leon]]'', one part ''{{Inception}}'' and one part ''TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''", you know he will aim for something to make audiences scratch their heads. [[spoiler:The GoingCosmic ending in particular shows the ''2001'' influence in "WTF".]]

Added DiffLines:
* NoHuggingNoKissing: There's very little romance in the movie, and even when it is brought up it doesn't last long. The only times it's mentioned is Lucy's' BastardBoyfriend Richard who she's only been seeing for a week [[spoiler: and dies in the opening scene of the movie]] and Lucy giving Del Rio a kiss and telling him he's the MoralityPet.
