* FollowTheLeader: Like the ''Film/HarryPotter'' films, the final film is going to be in two parts. The comparison has not gone unnoticed in newspapers and blogs, who think it's just trying to feed off the fandom-feud by doing so.
* GenrePopularizer: Say what you will about the quality, but it triggered an explosion of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. SturgeonsLaw is in full effect, but some of them are actually quite good. Though a more accurate statement would be that it brought such a genre into the public consequence as there are/were a number of similar series well before ''Twilight''.
** An example would be ''Literature/VampireAcademy''.
** Another is ''Literature/TheSookieStackhouseMysteries''.
** And ''Literature/{{Evernight}}''.

** Also, there was going to be a POVSequel telling the story of the first book from Edward's viewpoint, but it was scrapped after the first twelve chapters of the manuscript were leaked on the internet. The book was to be called''Midnight Sun''. (There's a host of conspiracy theories out there about how the manuscript was leaked, ranging from Robert Pattinson being behind it -- it was common knowledge that he had been given a copy to help him get into character, and also common knowledge that he hated his character -- to Stephenie Meyer herself, wanting an excuse not to bother to finish the book despite the fact that the fandom had clamored desperately for it since her first mention of writing it -- to Stephenie Meyer's publishing house, with or without her consent. The manuscript was leaked right after the release of the highly controversial -- and loathed by even some of the most fanatical fans of the series -- ''Breaking Dawn. Midnight Sun'' appeased many people who were considering dropping the fandom entirely, and this was also around the time the movies began releasing.)

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to [[http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/movie-talk-twilight-that-almost-was.html this article]], ExecutiveMeddling at Paramount was originally planning to turn ''Twilight'' into a far more action-heavy movie -- something of a high school-set version of ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' -- in order to bring in more male viewers. Bella was made into a far more active character (she was written as a track star) who fought back against the vampires, and gets turned into one herself in the first movie. AnyoneCanDie was in full effect, with Bella's dad dying by the end of the movie. A Korean FBI vampire hunter was introduced as an antagonist, and one scene had vampires picking off members of a SWAT team sent into a forest after them, while Edward was a Film/{{Blade}}-type vampire. An ExecutiveVeto from Creator/StephenieMeyer put the kibosh on this, and the resulting adaptation by Summit was made far more faithful to the novel.
** When writing the first book, Stephenie Meyer based the physical appearance of Edward on Creator/HenryCavill, who was then little known. She described him as perfect for the part but he was considered too old to play it when the film was made.
