* ArtisticLicenceBiology: Agent Smith claims that humans are not ordinary mammals because they do not instinctively seek out an equilibrium within the ecosystem. In fact, no species "instinctively" seeks an equilibrium with its environment -- most are just sufficiently evenly matched that one species is unlikely to have the kind of overwhelming negative impact on its ecosystem that humans can have. Humans function similarly to an invasive species, but on a much larger level. But invasive species can be animal, plant, or anything else. This may be just [[MisanthropeSupreme in-character bullshitting from Smith]], however.

Added DiffLines:

** Rinehart chews out Neo for being late to work, while Neo keeps wistfully looking out the window. He's caught between an authoritative suited figure and the outside world, with the window washers' soap dripping down to resemble the MatrixRainingCode, the barrier between those scenarios.

Added DiffLines:

* GreaterScopeVillain: The Machines. While they are seen a couple of times, like the ones that flush Neo once he wakes up in the real world and the Sentinels, for the most part their influence is only felt or implied. Instead the main adversaries are the Machines' creations like the Agents or the Matrix itself.

Thomas Anderson is a young and dissatisfied computer programmer who lives a double-life online as "Neo", a skilled hacker-for-hire. Feeling that there is something off about the world, Thomas pursues a enigmatic darknet phrase referring to "The Matrix" and finds himself stumbling down a rabbit hole to a terrifying truth: the PresentDay world he knows is [[PlatonicCave an illusion]]; a computer simulation of Earth designed to keep humanity passive and captive under the control of a race of sentient machines.

The first film of the trilogy begins in what looks like the PresentDay. The film's protagonist, Thomas Anderson, a.k.a. Neo, finds out that this world exists as an illusion created by sentient machines that TurnedAgainstTheirMasters and took over the world. The machines plugged humanity into a virtual world, the Matrix, to keep humanity complacent while the machines sapped their bio-electricity and body heat to fuel themselves.[[note]]The Wachowskis intended for the machines to use humanity [[WetwareCPU as a giant neural computer network]], but ExecutiveMeddling intervened.[[/note]]

Neo eventually finds himself face-to-face with Morpheus, who tells Neo the truth. Neo reluctantly joins the resistance movement against the Machines, which happens in both the real world and the Matrix. "Free minds" know the Matrix only resembles reality, so they need no longer follow certain inconvenient rules (such as gravity) while "jacked in." (They do have one rule they cannot escape, though: Death in the Matrix means brain death in the real world.) The Matrix has its own defense force, both inside the system (programs known as Agents that can bend the rules of the Matrix) and outside it (hunting machines known as Sentinels). Neo eventually finds his place as a [[BecauseDestinySaysSo foretold hero]] and sets out to free mankind from the Matrix; in the process of this self-discovery, Neo defeats one of the Agents -- Smith -- and sends the others running in terror.

* LongingForFictionland: [[spoiler:Cypher]] is so tired of real life and its hardships that he willingly asks the Agents to be ensconced back in the Matrix as a rich celebrity. Despite the fact he is aware that the Matrix is unreal, [[spoiler:Cypher]] prefers it to real life. Because after nine years, what has he learned? Ignorance is bliss.
