* WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys: The film attempts to do this for the technology seen in the original trilogy. The underground training facility beneath the Xavier Institute is stated to be a massive, repurposed {{WW2}} bomb shelter, while the Cerebro computer and the prototype Blackbird/X-Jet are both revealed to be projects Hank [=McCoy=] designed for the CIA.

** Shaw is also convinced that Erik will willingly and enthusiastically join his side despite Shaw's murder of Erik's mother and subsequent horrific experimentation upon Erik, as these acts set Erik on the path to his true power potential.

Added DiffLines:

** Emma Frost seems to be in this movie purely for this trope, and she pulls it off very nicely. Angel and Moira (especially during the Hellfire Club infiltration scene) aren't hard on the eyes either. Oh, and Mystique is Jennifer Lawrence running around in blue bodypaint.

Added DiffLines:

* ClashOfEvolutionaryLevels: Charles Xavier's doctoral thesis outright states the "Cro-Magnon exterminated Neanderthal'' theory, to set the tone for the film itself, [[Film/XMen1 as]] [[Film/X2XMenUnited well]] [[Film/XMenTheLastStand as]] [[Film/XMenOriginsWolverine all]] [[Film/TheWolverine chronologically]] [[Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast subsequent]] [[Film/XMenApocalypse films.]] [[JustifiedTrope Justified,]] since the film was set in the sixties when that theory was still in the majority.

* FoeRomanceSubtext: Erik with Charles, to the point where TelevisionWithoutPity gave them the "Best Couple" award and the fandom calls the beach scene a "divorce". A bit of a variation on this trope in that they're actually ''friends'' despite their opposing goals and the subtext comes from the friendship rather than hostility.
