* ConservationOfNinjitsu: [[spoiler:Shockingly averted as despite sending a whole army of ninjas for Logan to fight, he manages to kill two by surprise in the belief he was still weakened by Viper's device, only for Harada to immediately fall back and use rope arrows to slow Logan down and highly poisonous arrows to knock him out.]]

** Yukio was much more morally ambiguous in the comics (especially in earlier appearances, where she was a mercenary/assassin/thief) than in the movie.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Viper knows about Logan's HealingFactor, along with using Mariko as a DistressedDamsel to force him to come to the facility where she plans to take his mutant powers away. She even deliberately taunts him to make him pull his claws out while he's restrained in a chair.

* SuperToughness: Even as his healing factor is compromised, Logan still has an adamantium skeleton which absorbs or deflects most trauma sent his way. In one fight a mook punches him square in the forehead and he reacts in pain with a metal sound effect.

* SuperStrength: Logan tosses people far when he gets the chance. [[JustifiedTrope Having to lug around an adamantium skeleton for years is going to make you a fair bit stronger than a normal human.]] Popular Science has made the observation that getting punched by Logan is like running face first into metal scaffolding. That's very appropriate. He also smacks a ninja with another ninja's mountain bike, shatters a handcuff by smashing it against the floor, charges the Silver Samurai with enough force to shatter the metal scaffolding behind him, and rips off the non-adamantium parts of the Silver Samurai armor with his bare hands. In fact, out of all the X-Men movies, this movie has the most displays of Wolverine's strength.

* BadassInDistress: In the Extended Cut, when Logan is bleeding out on the Love Hotel balcony, [[spoiler:he's ambushed by several Yakuza goons, and quickly left at their mercy. Before they can finish him off, Mariko saves him with her [[ChekovsSkill knife-throwing skills]].]]

* CaughtInTheRain: Logan and Mariko return to the house in Nagasaki after a sudden rainshower and change from their wet clothes into traditional Japanese wear. Mariko notes that Logan is wearing his wrong and goes to adjust it; it's no surprise what happens next.

* {{Hypocrite}}: Logan gets really angry at [[spoiler:Noburo for cheating on Mariko, his fiancé,]] despite having slept with her the night before while knowing about her engagement. As seen under GoodAdulteryBadAdultery, there's a distinction. From Wolverine's perspective, Noburo, by arranging a marriage with her father, is essentially asking for her hand, where Mariko is being forced to marry him so as not to shame her father. Given his shock when she tells him, it's clear he sees the distinction.
