* BilingualBonus: The Soviet Captain refers to an officer on the bridge as "''zampolit''," which is translated as comrade. The enthusiasm at which the crew later drag him off to the brig becomes understandable if one knows that ''zampolit'' is how [[ThePoliticalOfficer Soviet political officers]] were addressed.

** 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.

** 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.

* 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.
