* SymbolicBaptism: When Neo is first unplugged from the Matrix, he wakes up in womb-like a pod filled with a reddish liquid which drains and flushes him into the hands of his allies. This is his first experience in actual reality.

* AstonishinglyAppropriateInterruption: [[spoiler:Cypher shoots his comrades and is about to pull the plug on Neo. But before he does, he demands that Trinity tell him if she truly believes that Neo is TheChosenOne. Trinity says yes. Cypher shouts "No, I don't believe it!"... because [[NoOneCouldHaveSurvivedThat one of the men he shot is still alive]] and pointing a very large gun at him.]]
-->'''Tank:''' Believe it or not, you piece of shit. You're still gonna burn! ''(fires)''

* AngstWhatAngst: Neo suffers no hesitation or guilt whatsoever in slaughtering the lobby guards. While this is technically also true of Morpheus and Trinity ''they'' have been doing this for a long time; Neo seems to be happy to kill the moment he has the opportunity to.

Added DiffLines:

* 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 in-character bullshitting from Smith, however.

* LibertyOverProsperity: Everyone who lives outside of the Matrix has basically chosen this. [[spoiler:[[TheCorruptible Cypher]], however, has [[FaceHeelTurn second thoughts]].]] Of course, since the Matrix is a representation of the world as it was in 1999, not everyone has prosperity there anyway. Agent Smith states an utopia was once attempted, but no one would accept the programming, with it [[LotusEaterMachine being seen as a dream]] they "kept trying to wake up from" and "entire crops were lost."
