* MagicKnight: Jean Grey and Storm, especially in the first game, provided you level up Psionic Strike and Lightning Fury, respectively. If you do you will have two monsters on your hands who will make any MightlyGlacier obsolete.

The second game abandons the POV character mechanic (which, in the first game, led to long stretches of Magma wandering around the [[HubLevel X-Mansion]] alone, giving only one player anything to do) and has the X-Men [[RivalsTeamUp teaming up]] with [[EnemyMine the Brotherhood]] to prevent the [[SealedEvilInACan evil immortal]] mutant Apocalypse from becoming invincible.

* AGodAmI: By way of Magneto's BlasphemousBoast in the first game as he covers the Earth in asteroids. No, seriously. The gravitas of Creator/TonyJay certainly help.
-->'''Magneto''': And on the eighth day, I looked down upon creation and said...''let there be darkness.''

* CripplingOverspecialization: Due to the way damage works in the first game, characters are generally only good at dealing one type of damage: either physical, energy, or mental. As the game progresses, you will often encounter enemies that either resist or are outright immune to a certain type of damage, which really reduces the usefulness of bringing certain characters on missions. Psychics end up suffering the most since the last third or so of the game is populated mostly by Sentinel enemies, who resist mental damage. Thankfully, the 2nd game took steps to fix this and many characters are able to deal more than one type of damage.

* AllYourPowersCombined: Apocalypse's plan in X-Men Legends II is to kidnap and steal the powers of 4 mutants with harmonic DNA, which when placed in one individual amplify each other. The mutants are Polaris, Quicksilver, Emma Frost, and Sabretooth.

** And really, about most of the playable characters in both games, a good deal of the Brotherhood, plus Apocalypse in the second game could be deemed as [[CompositeCharacter Composite Characters]] as they've combined the Ultimate looks, but the personalities, background, and powers of their classic selves, though there were quite a few expections. Sabretooth combines three different versions of his character as his powers and personality of his classic version, and yet in the second game, he cares for Blink ala the ''ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse'' version.

* GameBreakingBug: The second half of X Men Legends 2 is prone to frequent crashing if the hero chest, used for storing unused equipment, is more than half full, since the levels get much larger from [[ChurchOfHappyology the Madri Temple]] onwards. Worst case scenario, you will no longer be able to load your save file.

* MovieSuperheroesWearBlack: Most characters wear black or other dark shades. The more colorful costumes from the comics are still featured as alternates (though even if the player changes a costume, [[GameplayAndStorySegregation it will not show up on the cutscenes]]).

** Apocalypse hams it up by just [[AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle his inflections]] and [[GutturalGrowler growly voice]], especially thanks to his long-winded speeches.

* PurposefullyOverpowered: In the first Astral Plane mission Professor X joins your team of Jean Grey and Emma Frost when he's at level 40, almost three times the rest of the characters' levels. When other chracters do about 20-40 hit points with a single punch, he does about 240 points, over 700 if he gets a critical. This makes you feel nice and safe with such a powerful character, until you lose him halfway through the mission [[spoiler: when Shadow King abducts him.]]
