* The protagonist in the 1959 movie ''The Immoral Mr. Teas'' gains some sort of x-ray vision. The significance of this movie comes from the facts that it is the first commercially successful Russ Meyer movie and that it was the first movie since the pre-code era which showed female nudity and was openly advertised (until that time, movies depicting nudity were only sold "under the counter").

* ''Film/{{Elysium}}'': Kruger uses his katana to help him cook food over an open fire. Although, Kruger was already fairly unhinged, and this may have doubled as a heads-up to his AxeCrazy nature.

*** Starting in this movie and carrying into the next two, shapeshifter Mystique is shown using a "default" human form--simply Creator/JenniferLawrence without the prosthetics--to pass as normal in public when she doesn't need to impersonate anyone but doesn't want to draw attention with her natural blue skin. Since these movies are prequels, it's possible that she grew out of the practice by the time of the original trilogy, since Nightcrawler asks her why she ''doesn't'' to use her powers this way and she replies, "I shouldn't have to." In reality, it gives her actress a break from the 7-hour makeup process.
