* ShootTheBuilder: The BigBad kills all the scientists with his bioweapon after they finished building his submarine. While it serves as a pretty good KickTheDog moment, it also raises FridgeLogic questions since he's planning to bomb ''every'' major city but they've only built one for him.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw:
** Xander's stunt at the beginning couldn't trigger the Three Strikes law, as they cannot be three felonies from the same "transaction."[[note]]Unless he already has two, but that's not what Gibbons said.[[/note]] Also, they would be state crimes and he wouldn't be sent to Leavenworth (a federal prison). Of course, the chief could have just been saying that to pressure him into working for him.
** The NSA does ''not'' have agents in the field--they're strictly signals intelligence (phone calls, emails, that sort of thing). Non-military human intelligence is the CIA's business.

A third film titled ''Film/XxXReturnOfXanderCage'' is slated for 2017, which like the title implies would see the return of Xander Cage, who had seemingly been killed offscreen in the previous movie.

* ExplainExplainOhCrap: When Xander and two others are dumped off a plane, they find themselves held captive in a compound. They assume it's another test and thus Xander mocks the murderous thug coming in for his bad accent and over the top threats. The man eventually thrusts a machete under Xander's face and asks if he thinks this is funny.
-->'''Xander''': Actually...what's funny...is that smells...like real blood.
