* TheyKilledKennyAgain: Irwin Keyes appears and dies in both films. To this day he insists he was playing the same character.



** This is literally how the edited version of the movie ends. X, while fleeing Eastland through a factory, comes across a bag and decides [[SchmuckBait absolutely has to open it]]. It explodes in his face. Freeze frame. Roll credits.
