* MetaphoricallyTrue: A specialty of the Oracle--she's not so much about actual prophecy as telling people "exactly what [they] needed to hear."

** And in the sequels, the former Agent Smith turns against the other machines. Even in the first film he was already trying to subvert his masters' control. When he removed his earpiece so the others can't hear him talk candidly to Morpheus, he admits that he really ''doesn't'' want to enforce the masquerade, but instead wants to wipe humanity out and destroy the Matrix, seeing it as much as prison for him as it is for them.

* AuthorAppeal: One of the Wachowskis employed a full-time dominatrix. Suddenly, Trinity's costumes make far more sense. Given the fact that both Wachowskis are[[{{transsexual}} trans]], Switch's name and the early draft in which she was male in the real world and female in the Matrix makes much more sense. The Wachowskis were also massive fans of sci-fi anime such as ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'' and Shaw Brothers wuxia movies, and incorporated elements from both genres into the films in copious amounts. They showed producer Joel Silver clips from ''Ghost In the Shell'' in addition to art and storyboards to give him an idea of what kind of movie they wished to make, and managed to hire Hong Kong action choreography extraordinaire [[Creator/YuenWooPing Yuen Woo-Ping]] to serve as stunt coordinator.

** Several works: in ''The Matrix'': ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' ("Follow the White Rabbit"); TheWizardOfOz ("Buckle your seat belt, Dorothy, because Kansas is going bye-bye"); Commercials for Life Cereal ("Hey, Mikey, I think he likes it."), in ''Reloaded'': when Neo flies across the city, his cape flapping in the wind, one of the characters says "Neo is doing his Franchise/{{Superman}} thing"; and others.

** The machines use a centuries-long scheme to control the free humans by periodically annihilating everyone in Zion and allowing The One to repopulate the city with 7 men and 16 women selected from the Matrix. This is intended to be a [[TwentyThree symbolic allusion]] to the amount of chromosomes found in a cell (7+16=23), but even with human technology it's not ecologically possible for such a small population to sustain itself in the long run. A gene pool of that size would die out from inbreeding within several generations.
** This assumes that the new Zion initiates are only repopulating through sex when they could also do so by freeing other people from the Matrix.
