* NeverendingTerror: Morpheus unplugs Neo from the Matrix, where he was living in a VirtualReality simulation of RealLife. He teaches Neo the truth about the Matrix, including the nature of their foe, the evil ArtificialIntelligence machines. Neo has a mental collapse and falls unconscious. When he wakes up, he asks Morpheus "I can't go back, can I." In fact, fatigue with the unending, terrifying RobotWar is what prompts [[spoiler:Cypher to betray the group on the slim hope of being able to go back.]]

* YourMindMakesItReal: TropeNamer. When Neo discovers that he has a nosebleed after a fight simulation, Morpheus reveals that someone will die in the real world when they die in the Matrix, stating that "the body cannot live without the mind." [[spoiler:We see this firsthand when Mouse is violently gunned down in the Matrix and we see him spitting blood and then flatlining in the real world]].

** Cypher answers the phone, and not Tank or Dozer. Trinity horrified, realises [[spoiler:he's caused theirs and Mouse's death along with Morpheus' capture. Apoc and Switch can only react with a "Oh God!" as they know they are completely vulnerable and about to be murdered via an abrupt disconnection.]]

* CrapsackWorld: [[spoiler: If you think the dystopian virtual world controlled by machines is a bit of a shitty deal, just wait till you see the ''real world'' ruled by machines. A GreyGoo scenario is adverted but nanomachines have nevertheless blackened the skies. There's nothing left. This is the primary reason why Cypher turns on his comrades and the Zion human rebellion, wishing he had never chosen the red pill from Morpheus.]]

* YouCantThwartStageOne: You are not meant to pass the Jump program first time. Much to Mouse's confusion. The entire point of the simulation is to show what you can eventually do, to open and free your mind from all doubt, and most poignantly, that ''if you die in the Matrix you die in the real world''.

* TakeThat: Easy to miss. Cypher wants to be an actor who remembers nothing. Agent Smith calls him [[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan Mr. Reagan]]. If so, [[DudeNotFunny it could have a rather cruel joke]]: In 1994, UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan disclosed he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. Though it could be a reference to Reagan's repeated assertions that he couldn't remember critical details of the Iran-Contra scandal.
