* CompositeCharacter: The film went along with the comic book's then (and rather compelling) implication of Dog Logan and Victor Creed/Sabretooth being the same individual; years later, however, the comics show Dog and Sabretooth as not being the same person. Movie Victor also takes on Rose's role from the ''Origin'' comic as the person who helped Logan run away.

* FantasticRacism: When we meet Scott Summers, his Spanish teacher demanded, in a sharp angry tone of voice, to take off his sunglasses, when he refused, knowing the consequences, the teacher gave him detention by writing a couple of lines in Spanish.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the comics, pre-X-Men Logan was a legitimate asshole who would have been very much ideologically aligned with the films' version of Stryker (something Stryker alludes to in ''Film/X2XMenUnited''). In this film he's shown to be generally decent and a reluctant participant in the X Team's more morally dubious actions.

* InASingleBound: Zero does some leaps that would require superhumanly strong legs. Sabretooth and [[spoiler: Weapon XI]] does too, but theformer does canonically have SuperStrength and the latter may have gained it along with other powers.

* RealEventFictionalCause: The film has a fictionalised version of the Three Mile Island incident, in which the nuclear plant is actually a secret laboratory for mutant experimentation, and a fight between Wolverine, Sabretooth and Weapon XI caused one of the plant's cooling towers to collapse.

* BlownAcrossTheRoom: Gambit's powers do this along with other effects. So does Cyclops' optic blasts.



* Fanservice: Other than Logan's shirtless scenes, Kayla looks pretty good in her lingerie.

* PunchedAcrossTheRoom: Dukes does this the poor schmuck he's training with,and then repeats it to Logan with a bodyslam. Logan and Victor does it to each other, and then [[spoiler:Weapon XI]] does it to Logan.

** Not helped by the addition of ''[[Film/TheWolverine]]'' to the franchise, so simply trying to talk about the film "Wolverine" will lead to confusion between this film and that one. Or, if the person you're talking to is particularly cheeky, confusion between ''all'' the X-Men films pre-''Film/XMenFirstClass'', thanks to Wolverine's SpotlightStealingSquad status.
