** Toad was previously a deformed hunchback, Ray Park was given greenish, rubbery skin but could otherwise pass as looking normal without much effort.
* AdaptationalBadass: In the comics, Toad was originally conceived as a deformed, sniveling hunchback who served as TheIgor to Magneto. His super power was [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway he could hop... really high]] because of having very low-grade super-strength, concentrated in his legs. However here, stuntman Ray Park played him as a wisecracking martial artist with wall-crawling abilities and a tongue that he could use as a whip, thus making him more capable of holding his own in a fight with other heroes. Also, he could spit slime projectiles.

** Mystique in the comics is more of a CuteMonsterGirl. The film gives her a slightly more alien appearance with scales and yellow eyes.



* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodeNames: Xavier tells Logan the X-Men's code names, just so he can snark about how ridiculous they sound. In-universe 'Wolverine' is a cage fighting name for him. Storm however is still called by her code name plenty of times.



* NeckLift: Sabretooth does this to Storm and Wolverine

to:

* NamedByTheAdaptation: Rogue's name wasn't revealed in the comics yet, so the movie calls her Marie. The comics later revealed it to be 'Anna Marie'.
* NeckLift: Sabretooth does this to Storm and WolverineWolverine.


Added DiffLines:

* SignificantWardrobeShift: Senator Kelly losing his glasses coincides with BreakTheHaughty, and his suit becomes far messier. He also loses the suit around the time he becomes 100% sympathetic.

** Wolverine in the comics and cartoon was a short, over muscled, animalistic guy with copious amounts of [[RugOfVirility body hair]]. Hugh Jackman is quite tall and handsome in comparison, and the success of his portrayal has filtered back [[RetCanon into the comic and other media]].

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalUgliness:
** In a minor example, Magneto is normally depicted as a towering man with a body builder physique and considered a SilverFox by much of the fanbase. Ian [=McKellan=] looks much older and has a more slight frame.

After introducing these major characters, the movie gets to work on the plot: Magneto (the boss of the bad guy with claws) has invented a machine that turns humans into mutants (with the unfortunate side effect of killing them shortly after). He mounts the machine in the torch of the UsefulNotes/StatueOfLiberty, with the intention of using it on a major UN Conference. Unfortunately, using the machine that much would kill him, so he kidnaps Marie (aka Rogue) with the intention of forcing her to absorb his powers and run the machine for him. Wolverine leads the rescue effort.

* BladeBrake: Wolverine averts a fall off the Statue of Liberty by hooking one of the points of the statue's crown, then spinning around it to land on top. The point falls off only after he's done.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The "X-Men 1.5" DirectorsCut has a blink-and-you'll-miss-it DeletedScene where the energy pulse from Magneto's device washes over the X-Men. Jean Grey is the only one who shows a physical reaction to the flash; this would seem to be the event that activated the Phoenix Force which would become so important in the next two movies. The second film acted as if this scene had been left in, with Scott and Jean discussing how her powers had changed since the Statue of Liberty.

* MonumentalBattle: The final battle takes place at the Statue of Liberty, with Wolverine and Sabretooth having a battle atop its head.
* MonumentalDamage: The climax takes place atop the Statue of Liberty, but other than the destruction of her torch by Magneto's machine (and a ray of her crown sliced off by Wolverine's claws) it is otherwise unharmed.
