* FutureFoodIsArtificial: People in the Real world eat "single cell protein combined with synthetic aminos, vitamins, and minerals" which tastes like snot. Zion inhabitants also manage to grow some mushrooms, but everything else is off-limits, without any sunlight whatsoever.

* FightingAShadow: The Agents are computer programs working for those running the Matrix, so there's no reason they should stay dead. If you actually manage to kill one by the rules of the simulation, the program remains in existence, and the Agent can return immediately by possessing the nearest bystander. DoubleSubverted when Neo destroys Smith at the end of the first movie, seemingly for good but ultimately only causing him to become more powerful in the next movie. Agents and other programs who are destroyed by "the rules" can, while incorporeal, choose to rebel and return a second time, but are considered an abomination.



* {{Expy}}: Several characters in the sequels fill roles of characters who died in the first movie: Niobe is the secondary-action-girl-with-cool-hair, to replace Switch; Link is the new wisecracking operator, to replace Tank; Smith-controlled Bane is the new double-agent-with-a-goatee to replace Cypher, and Kid is the new cute youngster to replace Mouse.

* AIIsACrapshoot:
** Agents, particularly Smith, who actually goes from Agent to Virus due to some part of him being changed by Neo destroying him in the first movie.
** Most Machine-aligned programs, more or less, as they will at times set aside more machine-like behavior (such as efficiency and pragmatism) and indulge in particularly human traits like cruelty, arrogance, and rage.

In 2017, there are plans for a relaunch on the franchise, though the Wachowskis and producer Joel Silver are not going to be involved.

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