** Seraph's line "You do not truly know someone, until you fight them" sounds similar to the line "How much do you know about yourself if you've never been in a fight?" from the movie ''Film/FightClub''.

* CurbstompBattle: Neo deals these out like candy due to having become a PhysicalGod in the Matrix. There's exactly one scene in the entire movie where someone manages to deal him an injury, and it's so insignificant it doesn't slow him down at all. During the finale it's revealed that [[spoiler:his abilities even transcend the Matrix into the real world itself when he curbstomps five Sentinels without any weapon]].


Added DiffLines:

* InformedAbility: The Agents' upgrades Neo mentions at the beginning of their fight. They don't seem to do them any good, to the point where the guys come across as little more than suit-clad punching bags for almost everyone they tangle with.

* CutTheJuice: In order to bypass security measures at the door to The Source, the group decides to shut off the power...by blowing up an entire ''nuclear'' powerplant. Even then, there is a contingency system which has to be shut off simultaneously from an entirely different place.

* DreamingOfThingsToCome: The opening scene depicts Trinity on the run from an agent, and ends with her jumping out of a building, getting shot, and slamming into a moving car... and then Neo wakes up. Later in the movie, [[spoiler:the same exact events actually happen... whereupon Neo saves her in midair and brings her back to life.]]

* FetchQuest: Bizarrely, this seems to be the entire plot of this film. Visit this guy, go to this guy to get this guy, get this guy to that thing... This is actually ''[[InvokedTrope noted]]''. The Merovingian mocks the heroes for mindlessly following the Oracle's orders, Persephone mocks the Merovingian for calling everything "a game", the Keymaker fatalistically states that he has no purpose but to expedite the quest, and the Architect mocks Neo for believing he "chose" anything in his life. The "revolutions" of [[Film/TheMatrixRevolutions the last movie]] are when both humans and machines break off the fetching.

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: Several of Neo's powers as The One from the end of the first film seem greatly missing. In particular the super speed he had displayed (where Agent Smith could only perceive Neo's movements as a blur) or Neo's ability to outright invade and destroy other programs are rather absent from most fight scenes, presumably because the movie would be over too quickly.

* GrievousHarmWithABody: Neo uses one Smith to scatter the others; even the sound effect suggests bowling-pins.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Niobe's scenes are limited in this movie but she is one of two main characters in Enter The Matrix, which explores the side events lead by Niobe and Ghost.

Played a little [[JustForPun straighter]] with the sword Morpheus takes from the handy Samurai statue. Bear in mind, that thing '''[[AbsurdlySharpBlade cuts]]''' [[RuleOfCool through]] ''a car''.

* OhCrap: Bane is introduced fleeing from an encounter with Smith with another redpill, remarking that he's "never seen an agent move that fast".
* OnceMoreWithClarity: The opening begins with Trinity attacking a place, before being attacked by an agent and apparently dying. It's not until the climax that the whys and wherefores are given (it's the only way to get Neo, Morpheus and the Keymaker where they're going. Another crew was supposed to handle it, but they all got killed).
* OneMythToExplainThemAll: The Oracle tells Neo that things of the supernatural are actually rogue programs.
--> Every story you've ever heard about vampires, werewolves, or aliens is the system assimilating some program that's doing something they're not supposed to be doing.
** Later on, Persephone uses a derringer-type gun loaded with [[SilverBullet silver bullets]] to kill one of the Merovingian's lackeys, and the Twins take on a monstrous appearance when they use their phasing ability.
