The last of the ''X-Men Trilogy'' even though there was [[TrilogyCreep the possibility]] of a fourth entry, the series would branch outward into [[SpinOff spin-offs]] and {{prequel}}s such as ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' and ''Film/XMenFirstClass''.

* SpotlightStealingSquad: The film was more of a Wolverine movie guest-starring the X-Men -- a heck of a sucker punch, since the comic story being adapted called for Cyclops [[DroppedABridgeOnHim (apparently killed very early on)]] [[note]]The quick removal of Cyclops is usually attributed to Creator/JamesMarsden starring in ''Film/SupermanReturns'', but see the discussion page if you like conspiracy theories.[[/note]] and Jean Grey (silently standing next to SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}} for the bulk of the film) to take the spotlight, and the promotional material [[AdvertisedExtra heavily featured Angel (in only three scenes)]].

* GenreSavvy: When the army learns Magneto is on the warpath again, a sequence shows them trading in their metal equipment and weapons for plastic variants, so he can't exert his influence on them. A scene in the final battle has him discovering this and muttering "Plastic...they've learned."

** Angel is featured heavily in all the promotional material, as part of the whole "the original X-Men team in the comics finally together in film". He only has two or three scenes: he refuses the cure and runs (flies?) away; he very briefly shows up at the X-Mansion for the sole purpose of allowing them to state categorically that the school is still open; and finally he [[spoiler: saves his father's life]] during the final battle. He does nothing in between.

* BroughtDownToNormal: The plot of revolves around a serum created from a mutant that imposes this trope on any other mutant around him. Throughout the movie, several characters take the serum, either forcefully or willingly. Major characters include: [[spoiler:Mystique, Rogue, and Magneto. In Magneto's case, it's revealed in TheStinger of ''Film/TheWolverine'' that it wasn't permanent.]]
** There is an alternate scene where [[spoiler:Rogue doesn't take the serum]].

* NotHisSled: In the comic book version of TheDarkPhoenixSaga, Wolverine managed to open his way to Jean, and she accepted her fate and requested him to kill her. But he goes back at the last moment: he loves her, he can't bring himself to kill her. Same thing on the animated series. Same context in the film... [[WouldHitAGirl completely opposite outcome]].
