** The first sequence depicting the BadFuture is a CurbStompBattle given by the Sentinels, ending in a single Sentinel energy beam approaching Kitty Pryde and Bishop just as they successfully revert to an alternate timeline. The last sequence depicting it is a battle [[spoiler: with a similar outcome ending in Xavier shielding Kitty and Wolverine from ''three'' Sentinel energy beams just as Mystique drops her gun in the past, allowing Trask to live and successfully averting the Sentinel dominated future entirely.]]

* ShoutOut:
** NakedOnArrival from a bleak future dominated by a RobotWar, the time-shifted Wolverine demands a goon hand over his clothes and vehicle. Hello there, ''Film/{{Terminator 2|JudgmentDay}}''! Although in this case, it wasn't the time-traveler who was naked, but the past version of his body he was jumping ''into'' that happened to be naked at the time.
** When Quicksilver questions whether Xavier, Hank and Logan are like him (mutants), Xavier tells Logan to "Show him." Logan mimics the pose taken by the Terminator in ''Terminator 2'' when John Connor orders him with that exact phrase, and pops his claws.
** Magneto quotes Creator/JamesBrown's "The Payback" during his rescue.
--->'''Erik:''' I don't know karate, but I know crazy.
** The Sentinels from the BadFuture act like more aerodynamic versions of the [[Film/{{Thor}} Asgardians' Destroyer]].
** An episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' appears on a screen -- one about TimeTravel, no less! (And in a film with [[Creator/PatrickStewart Captain Picard]] in it.)
** Charles' introduction, featuring a pull-back from Patrick Stewart's eye that flies the camera through the guts of the X-Men jet, is almost certainly a shout-out to the opening shot of ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact''. The jet's toroidal reactor even has the exact same shape as the interior of the Borg Cube.
** Villain planning to stop humanity's wars by uniting them against an enemy that isn't actually an enemy? [[Film/{{Watchmen}} Where have we seen that before?]] Bonus points for Nixon being the President in both cases.
** The ending is reminiscent of the end of ''Film/BackToTheFuture Part One''. [[spoiler:In both films, the protagonist wakes up in his room in a happier altered future, is initially confused by his surroundings, and is specifically asked by another character "Is everything alright?"]]
** In their commentary, Creator/BryanSinger and Simon Kinberg admitted that they were inspired by '70s-era {{Conspiracy Thriller}}s when they came up with the idea of the military and Trask Industries covering up the experimentation and murder of mutant soldiers under the fog of war.
** Blink's use of portals (port Colossus high into the air, then catch him with a portal flat on the ground that translates his downward velocity into horizontal movement via an upright standing portal and slams him into a sentinel) will be very familiar to anyone who ever played a certain game about [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} apertures]].

* ContinuityNod:
** Logan tells Xavier that he has fought in a lot of wars, something seen in the opening to ''Origins''.
** Charles in 1973 regards Magneto as a monster, and Erik called himself "FrankensteinsMonster" in ''First Class''.
** The sincerity of the younger Erik's apology ("I'm sorry, Charles, for what happened, I truly am") is questionable because it sounds very much like Shaw's from ''First Class'' ("I'm sorry for what happened in the camps, I truly am").
** When 1973 Xavier chooses not to inject himself with the serum (in order to regain his powers), a snippet of music from "Mutant and Proud" (from the ''First Class'' score) can be heard.
** When Xavier refers to his telepathy as, "This is a muscle I haven't stretched in a long time," it brings to mind the lesson he gave to Sean Cassidy in 1962. ("This is like any other muscle in the body, you can control it.")
** Stryker's "You hate mutants, don't you?" "No, I respect them" speech that he gives to the General in ''Origins'' is almost word for word repeated here, only this time a younger Stryker is on the receiving end as Trask (his mentor) delivers the speech.
** At the end of the movie, [[spoiler:Logan is fished out of the water and placed on a grate much like how he was placed in ''X2'' during his adamantium bonding process]].
** Professor X's line where he informs Wolverine that the latter has to "Lead me, guide me" may have been recycled from the trailer for ''First Class'' where Charles tells Erik, "A new species is being born. Help me guide it, shape it, lead it."
** When Magneto recovers his helmet, ''The Rogue Cut'' adds a shot of him noticing [[Film/XMenFirstClass the coin he had used to kill Shaw]] on display right next to it.
** In ''The Rogue Cut'', a crippled war veteran asks Xavier how he became a paraplegic, and the latter's somber response is "[[Film/XMenFirstClass Friendly fire]]."
** After a harsh discussion, Magneto tries to make peace with Charles... [[SmartPeoplePlayChess with a chess table]].
** William Stryker is asked about his son, Jason, who played a crucial part in the events of ''X2''.
** An exhibit in the Pentagon holds several mutant artifacts from the Cuban incident in the '60s: Sebastian Shaw's helmet, Angel Salvadore's severed wing, the coin used to kill Sebastian Shaw, and Havok's damaged focusing unit. Each of these were presumably recovered from the final battle in ''Film/XMenFirstClass''. The one exception is the helmet, which must have been obtained when Magneto was captured after JFK's assassination. Magneto had been wearing it when Azazel teleported the Brotherhood away from Cuba, and still had it on when he freed Emma Frost from government captivity at the end of the previous movie.
** Hank at first suspects that Peter is a teleporter because the teen's power reminds him of [[Film/XMenFirstClass Azazel's]].
** Kitty has a habit of insulting her enemies because she calls the Sentinel that is about to attack her an "asshole," which is reminiscent of the time [[Film/XMenTheLastStand she addressed the Juggernaut as "dickhead."]]
** This movie marks the first time Fassbender's Magneto addresses [=McAvoy=]'s Xavier as "old friend," which is their elder counterparts' term of endearment in the original trilogy.
** While it's difficult to see, Colossus was sketching something before Warpath announces that the Sentinels have arrived. It's a small nod to ''Film/X2XMenUnited'' where Colossus drew a funny image of Iceman being "zapped" by Rogue.
** While it's not explicitly stated, 2023 Logan is no longer the "ronin" we saw in ''Film/TheWolverine'' because he has been reunited with his "master" Professor X, who gives him purpose as a warrior.
** In Xavier's study, the only book title that is clearly legible to the audience reads, "Einstein." [[Film/XMenFirstClass As a boy]], Charles used to decorate his night table with framed photos of his favourite scientists, including Albert Einstein.

* MythologyGag: A ''lot''.
** Wolverine's future outfit has yellow and blue elements as a nod to his classic comic book outfit. It also serves as a CallBack to Cyclops's comment about "yellow spandex" in the first ''X-Men'' film. His outfit in 1973 is identical to the one the future Wolverine wore in the original comic storyline.
** The Sentinels, particularly those from the X-Men's BadFuture, possess elements of Bastion and Nimrod. The claws they occasionally sprout are clearly based on those of Lady Deathstrike.
** When Beast asks Wolverine if he's a parent, he sneers and replies "[[{{ComicBook/Daken}} Sure as hell]] [[ComicBook/{{X 23}} hope not]]."
** In the [[ComicBook/DaysOfFuturePast original comic storyline]], Kitty was the one who was sent to the past. In the film, she's the one who sends Wolverine back.
** Bishop, the one who got sent back in the "Days of Future Past" arc in the [[WesternAnimation/XMen 1990's animated series]], is one of the future X-Men, and Kitty mentions that he is her usual target of MentalTimeTravel in avoiding Sentinel attacks.
** Beast is able to hide his mutant appearance by using a formula that hinges on the suppression of his rage, much like his debut episode in ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution''.
** Quicksilver's quip to Magneto: "So, they told me you control metal. My mom once knew a guy who could do that." Erik is his father in the comics.
** Quicksilver has a little brown-haired girl on his lap while watching TV. The girl is either Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. The Scarlet Witch or, based on a cut scene in which Quicksilver and the little girl's mom tells her to "go up and bug your sister," Lorna Dane a.k.a. Polaris as in the "House of M" timeline (given Peter and Wanda are twins and Polaris is only their half-sister, probably the latter). The credits themselves only identify her as Quicksilver's sister.
** Colossus and Kitty are shown teaching a class together, referencing their relationship in the comics.
** [[spoiler:Storm's death in the BadFuture is the same as her death in the original comic -- skewered by a Sentinel through her torso.]]
** BadFuture Magneto levitates the Blackbird's scrap metal for offense and defense. This is exactly how CPU Magneto's ''Magnetic Tempest'' rips apart the parked Blackbird in the final stage of ''VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom''.
** When Charles attempts a psychic link on Raven, she utters "Get out of my head, Charles!" This line is often said by Juggernaut, Charles' stepbrother in the comics.
** The scene where Magneto embeds Wolverine's body with steel bars resembles a famous comic panel of [[https://marswillsendnomore.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/x-men-25-010.jpg Magneto ''removing'' Wolverine's adamantium skeleton]].
** Erik throws Logan into the Potomac River and leaving him to drown is a reference to ''Ultimate X-Men'' where Sabertooth once considered drowning as the only thing to which Wolverine's healing factor is vulnerable. Needless to say, this is the closest Wolverine has come to dying in the film series.
** The future Sentinels copying and adapting to mutant powers is similar to what they did in ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen''.
** Quicksilver wears a pair of goggles while using his powers, much like his nephew Speed from the ''ComicBook/YoungAvengers''.
** With help from Blink, Colossus pulls off his Super Dive attack from ''VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom'' and subsequent ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' games.
** Blink wasn't in the original comics "ComicBook/DaysOfFuturePast", but she was in "ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse," a different bleak timeline.
** Magneto [[spoiler:using Sentinels to attack the White House and attempt to kill the President before being stopped by Xavier's telepathy]] is taken from the climax of the first arc from ''ComicBook/UltimateXMen''.
** Before deciding on Wolverine, the BadFuture mutants plan on sending Xavier's mind back in time. His mind was the one sent back in ''Wolverine and the X-Men''.
** While Wolverine wasn't the one sent back in the original comic storyline, he did get sent back in similar stories, such as Frank Tieri's "Weapon X: Days of Future Now" or in the Ultimate Universe, as [[spoiler:the Ultimate version of Cable]].
** Future Wolverine's hair is shown to be greying at the temples, similar to the future Wolverine of the original comic story.
** In a deleted scene, Logan and Ororo share a kiss before Wolverine is sent back in time. In the comics and animated series, BadFuture Wolverine and Storm are lovers.
** The plot point involving Hank's restorative serum, wherein Professor Xavier overcomes his paralysis at the cost of his telepathic abilities, is based on the period in the 1980's when Xavier did just that, though for different reasons. [[note]] In the comics, Xavier regained the use of his legs after the Shi'ar transplanted his mind into a clone body, as his original body was destroyed in a battle with the Brood. He had to give up his telepathy in order to keep the psychosomatic pain in his legs at bay, and spent some time [[WalkingTheEarth exploring the galaxy with Lilandra Neramani]] as a normal human.[[/note]]
** Magneto [[spoiler:gained control of the Sentinels]], just like in the ''VideoGame/XMen'' arcade and the ''Wolverine and the X-Men'' animated series.
** Imprisoned mutants in the future have the letter M branded over the right eye, which is done to mutants in Bishop's native future timeline in the comics. That world is similar to the original "Days of Future Past", but separate.
** Peter keeps his habit from ''X-Men Evolution'' of being a kleptomaniac simply because he gets bored.
** Future Xavier has a floating "wheelchair," just as he did in the comics during the '90s and the animated series around the same time.
** Quicksilver's BulletTime scene may be a reference to his ComicBook/{{Ultimate|Marvel}} counterpart, who claims to regularly do this (which is later proven correct) and it's shown that even a small impact from him can greatly injure someone.
** Past Xavier's alcoholism is presumably a reference to his mother Sharon becoming a drunk not long after the death of her first husband in the comics. It may be a case of [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Mother, Like Son]] because Charles reaches for the bottle when he cannot cope with profound loss.
** A PowerNullifier restores Charles Xavier's ability to walk and he loses that ability once he regains his powers. It also happens to him in the [[WesternAnimation/XMen 1990's animated series]].

* AllegoricalCharacter: "Hope" is the title of Xavier's theme on the soundtrack. His 1973 self must regain hope, otherwise by 2023, mutantkind is doomed to extinction (a hopeless past Charles = a hopeless future for mutants).



* BlueIsHeroic: Xavier's past self is subjected to a PaletteSwap that marks the return of his familiar blues and greys to designate that he has taken up the mantle of being a hero again.



** The film ends with appearances from [[spoiler:Anna Paquin as Rogue, Creator/JamesMarsden as ComicBook/{{Cyclops}}, Creator/FamkeJanssen as Jean Grey, and Creator/KelseyGrammer as the older version of Beast, all of whom were restored to life after the heroes stopped Mystique from killing Trask]].
