* BringIt: After Smith's first rant about how "the purpose of life is to end", Neo just stands up and does his classic "bring it" gesture.

** Rare heroic use of the trope when Neo makes one with the Machine City AI, stating that Smith's program has run amok, and neither one of them alone can take him out, or they would have already done so. He suggests they work together in order to defeat Smith, in exchange for the machines to stop their attack on Zion.

The third film in ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' franchise, ''The Matrix Revolutions'' follows up directly from the previous film (as the Wachowskis filmed ''[[Film/TheMatrixReloaded Reloaded]]'' and ''Revolutions'' back-to-back). As the machines reach humanity's real world stronghold and begin their assault, Neo attempts to defeat Agent Smith, who has all but taken over the Matrix, and end the war altogether.

* AssimilationBackfire: Agent Smith assimilates The Oracle, which appears to backfire in some way (since she knew he was coming). It backfires because, as she explained to Neo, "We can't see past the choices we don't understand." Smith could see that Neo would die, [[EvilCannotComprehendGood but not the reason he sacrificed himself.]] At the end, [[spoiler:Neo's assimilation gives Smith a direct link back to the machines, allowing them to purge the rogue AI.]]

* CueTheSun: At the end, the Oracle and Sati are sitting on a bench in a green park under a stunning sunrise. Which was made by Sati ("for Neo"), showing her to be pretty GenreSavvy where symbolism is concerned.
* DeusExMachina: A rather [[LampshadeHanging self-aware]] use of the trope is used to resolve the plot at the end. [[spoiler: Neo proposes a plan to end the war by traveling to Zero One to offer his help in killing Agent Smith in exchange for peace. The god-like supercomputer who rules the machines--who has never been mentioned before this point--agrees, and forces the Sentinels to break off their attack just as they're about to destroy Zion.

* DisabilitySuperpower: Near the end [[spoiler: Neo is blinded by Bane, a human who has been taken over by Neo's rival Agent Smith. However he still manages to overpower and kill him due to his powers as [[TheChosenOne the One]]: he can see data and machinery as glowing yellow light. This appears to also include humans who have been possessed by programs. It also happens only in the real world; while in the Matrix, Neo's residual self-image still has normal eyes and vision]].

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: When Morpheus and the others return to Zion and activate the EMP inside their ship to disable the Sentinels inside the city, they are at first greeted as heroes. However, Commander Locke is GenreSavvy enough to realize that by doing so, they've also disabled any other feeble defenses the humans had left. And since the Machines have [[WeHaveReserves reserve forces]], the second wave comes in completely unopposed. It's only due to Neo's DealWithTheDevil that stops the Sentinels from wiping out the remaining humans.

He started out cool and collected if slighty cocky, but as the fight against Neo progressed, you can clearly see that Neo's tenacity slowly started to get to Smith. In his "Why do you persist?!" moment, he pretty much screams out his infamous rant with an enraged look in his eyes. When Neo answers his question ("Because I choose to"), Smith pretty much loses it.
