** Also, averting ArtisticLicensePhysics in at least a few cases, Quicksilver knows to hold Erik's head so he doesn't get "whiplaaaash," and he wears [[GogglesThatActuallyDoSomething goggles]] to protect his eyes while at superspeed.

* TimeFreezeTrollingSpree: Using his SuperSpeed, Quicksilver has enough spare time while redirecting bullets to position the cops that shot at him to punch themselves, give one a wedgie, steal someone's hat and, because this takes place in a kitchen, taste one of the dishes.

* UnreliableExpositor: [[spoiler:According to Erik, he curved the bullet in an attempt to save JFK, since he was actually a mutant, but failed. We don't know for sure either way.]]

* WhatYouAreInTheDark: {{Invoked}} by Charles. [[spoiler:In the climax, he's urged to put Mystique out of commission so she won't kickstart the BadFuture. However, he realizes that Mystique has spent her life being influenced by others, so he instead tells her that he will do nothing to stop her, but hopes that she will see there is a better way. She agrees and stands down.]]

** 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.]]

* ImmuneToBullets: Wolverine. The bullets her receives from the thugs when he awakes in 1973 have no chance to kill him. His HealingFactor even pushes them out of his body as he regenerates.

* 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]].
