* MoralEventHorizon: There's one for most of the villains.
** Quicksilver had his when he had a train derailed for the purpose of pretending to save people for fame and money, and upon finding out that if they failed that hundreds will die, including himself, he runs away and leaves those trapped, and potentially the entire town, to die. He knew his Brotherhood friends ''and'' his sister were there, ''and he left them there anyway.''
** Toad stole Kurt's image inducer — not that bad, until you remember that he purposely chose to do it while Kurt was ''meeting with his girlfriend's parents'', ruining his chance at making them accept him.
** Magneto had it when he had his own daughter Wanda mindraped, just so she'd stay away from him. Said mindrape took place via replacing her memories of him abandoning her in a mental institution, which is what made her become a DarkMagicalGirl in the first place, into loving memories that made her forget his abuse.
** Mystique when she tried to kill the New Recruits, for no reason other than them being unable to fight Magneto. And she did it again via kidnapping Scott, stealing his PowerLimiter aka his ruby quartz glasses, and ''leaving him stranded in the middle of nowhere.''
** Duncan Matthews and his pals went from [[JerkJock Jerk Jocks]], to physically assaulting Scott ''unprovokedly'' after he was outed as a mutant, to post-graduation attempted [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal mutant murder with mining machinery]]. [[spoiler:That last one got them sentenced to life in prison. [[WhatAnIdiot Duh]]]].
** There was also Guy Spears, the soft-drink manufacturer who unknowingly laced his drink with mutant poison. You can tell he's genuinely surprised... then MoodWhiplash kicks in and he figures he can make a lot of money off the discovery.
** Apocalypse was planning on using his machine to turn the populace into mutants... But even he notes that this may ''kill'' much of the human population, due to their bodies not being able to take it. He still was willing to go through it.



** Bobby uses his freezing powers to create a dancing ballerina figure to impress Jubilee.

* TheGrotesque: Invoked with the Morlocks. They are a group of sewer-dwelling mutants whose mutations also incurred [[PowerUngradingDeformation a more or less severe physical deformity]].

Added DiffLines:

** In Season Four, Jean and Scott both get smacked around by [[spoiler: Legion]], with Jean's powers unaccountably being nerfed back to season one levels.
** Magneto gets it from Apocalypse when he uses his powers to seize control of and hurl army vehicles, weapon emplacements, and drags satellites down from orbit to throw at his opponent. Apocalypse [[NoSell shrugs it off like it’s nothing]] and (apparently) vaporizes Magneto before the X-Men's horrified eyes.

* IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine: The casting of Michael Donovan as Sabretooth opposite Creator/ScottMcNeil as Wolverine is rather amusing considering their respective roles as [[WesternAnimation/DoubleDragon Billy and Jimmy Lee]].

* AdaptationalJerkass: In the comics, while Pyro was a somewhat unstable and violence prone LargeHam, he had an undying loyalty to his friends and eventually died a hero. Here he is as much of a sociopath as Pietro.



* AdaptationalSuperpowerChange: Mystique. In the comic books she's a mutant humanshifter, but still unable to alter her body mass and taking on the form of someone who doesn't have a similar build as her causes her great strain. In the show, however, Mystique is a full shapeshifter with ShapeshifterBaggage in play: she can grow up to the size of Juggernaut or the Blob, or shrink down to the form of a common house cat or a bird, such as a [[SleathPun raven]].

Added DiffLines:

* AstralProjection: Charles Xavier and Jean Grey have been shown to do this especially since their both telepaths.
** Despite not having any PsychicPowers of his own, Xavier's sometimes-ally, sometimes-enemy Magneto can do this as well as shown in "The Cauldron".


Added DiffLines:

** Mesmero likes this too. Using other people is his favorite tactic, and his best work ''isn't'' via MindControl.

Added DiffLines:

** Also during the fight between the X-Men/Brotherhood team-up and Magneto's Acolytes in the second season's finale, Rogue's so taken with Gambit when she first meets him that she doesn't realize he's given her a card that's about to explode.


Added DiffLines:

* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship:
** With a slight stretch, Tabitha/Boom-Boom and Amara/Magma can be seen enacting this trope.
** Kitty Pryde and Dani Moonstar in the episode "Ghost of a Chance".
** It ''looked'' for a second that Rogue and Risty Wilde were good candidates for this trope, but it took a turn for the Squick when it was revealed that [[spoiler:Risty was Mystique in disguise, planning to use her and the X-Men for her own plans... and that she's also Rouge's mother]].

* BigNo: It's a truly sad one, when Nightcrawler reacts too slow to stop [[spoiler:an angry Rogue from pushing Mystique's petrified body off a cliff and has to see it shatter into a thousand shards right in front of him]], shortly after finding out that Mystique was his mother. Again, the scene would have been so much better without the slow-motion yell. When recapping that episode in the introductions to later ones, they put the "NOOOO" back at normal speed. It's much more effective.


Added DiffLines:

* DarkIsNotEvil: Like his comic counterpart, the demon-like Nightcrawler fits this trope to a T. In fact, he's probably the most lighthearted character on the show.


Added DiffLines:

* RunningOnAllFours: Nightcrawler, on occasion. He usually does this when he's in an urgent situation.


Added DiffLines:

* TogetherWeAreX:
--> "Hi! I'm Nightcrawler!"
--> "And I'm Shadowcat!"
--> "We're X-Men!"
--> "And ''these'' are your weapons systems!" *kablam*

** Spyke at one point convinced Rogue to use her powers to copy Kitty's dancing for a play.
** Spyke himself also used his bone spikes to staple posters to the ceiling. Too bad they don't stick, as Kitty found out.

** And mutant baseball anyone?
*** It was something of a running gag that they could never get through gym class with "no powers" rule intact, usually because some of the students have superhuman strength or agility that they can't just turn off, and someone with more overt gifts would attempt to compensate.
** In the comics based on Evolution, Nightcrawler used his teleporting powers to take shortcuts to school so he could sleep in later. He's also done it to sneak out of school to go to the local burger joint for a quick snack. The show itself showed him using his prehensile feet to steer the Blackbird and hold popcorn bowls, use his 'porting abilities to do awesome cannonballs in the pool, bypass stairs by leaping over them or crawling on walls, and abusing the settings on his image inducer to make himself look buff and hunky.
** In an interview with ''Toyfare'', the writers of Evolution said that Scott occasionally forgets himself and uses his eye beams on, say, an uncooperative soda machine [[PercussiveMaintenance to get it to work]].
** Lance aka Avalanche was introduced by doing the same thing. He touched a soda machine, used a bit of his seismic powers on it, and got a free can.
** Storm has used her powers to alter the climate to water her plants.
** Kitty is so comfortable with her phasing powers that she doesn't use a door, sometimes skipping the door altogether and just phasing through it or the walls. Also she doesn't use stairs that much either.



** Heck, they discuss it in the show’s tie-in comics.

** Heck, they discuss it in the show’s tie-in comics. And they were interrupted before Kurt could get finished asking about ''that''.



* TeleFrag: In episode "No Good Deed", Scarlet Witch messes up Nightcrawler's powers and causes him to teleport into a sign. The sign is pushed apart by Nightcrawler appearing in the middle of it. What would happen if it had been a ''person'' is left to the imagination.



* ThreePointLanding: Nightcrawler ''loves'' doing this.
