* AdaptationalBadass: The Sentinels. The ''first prototype'' caused no end of trouble for both the X-Men and the Brotherhood. It was only when Magneto took control of it that they were able to eventually destroy it, but first they had to fight him and the power he was enjoying with his new toy. Normally, sentinels are depicted as giant, intentionally human-shaped robots whose effectiveness always varied between being an actual threat to laughably weak. In this series, they were [[http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h245/DRCEQ2/Cartoons%20and%20comics/30-24.jpg giant]], [[http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h245/DRCEQ2/Cartoons%20and%20comics/30-25.jpg bi-pedal]] [[http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h245/DRCEQ2/Cartoons%20and%20comics/30-22.jpg highly-weaponized war machines]] designed for nothing less than to ruthlessly and ''effectively'' hunt down mutants.

** Forge plays it straight, but that's because he doesn't even have one in the comics. Almost everyone else has a name in the comics (Rogue's having been revealed as [[Creator/AnnaPaquin Anna]] [[Film/XMen Marie]]), but Forge doesn't.

* {{Badass}}: While Logan gets worfed, the show provides plenty of badass with Scott and Rogue (and Evan, but he doesn't really become badass until he leaves the team) of the X-Men, Lance (who gets a catchy guitar rift when he uses his powers) and Mystique of the Brotherhood, ALL of the Acolytes except for Mastermind, Tabitha (if you consider randomly blowing things up badass) of the New Recruits, but Callisto and Evan (once he joins them) of the Morlocks. But, given the fact she effortlessly took out the entire Institute, X-23 probably ranks top of the list of most badass in the show.

Added DiffLines:

** Worse still was in Season 3, when Bobby, while on a cruise ship, thought it would be a great idea to create ice sculptures in the water and then decided to ''re-enact the titanic by recreating its iceberg''.

** Colossus is one of Magneto's soldiers instead of an X-Man. Though this is somewhat of a DownplayedTrope as Colossus is being forced to work for the Brotherhood and Professor X's vision shows he is destined to join the X-Men.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Nightcrawler is often depicted in the comic books and their adaptations as a blue-furred demon-like being with yellow eyes that lack irises or pupils, and short, messy blue-black hair. Here, he keeps his three-fingered hands, two-toed feet, demon-like tail, fangs, pointed ears, and blue fur, and his abnormal appearance does play a major role in how he relates to others and how others (particularly non-mutants) relate to him, but the features of his face have become less haunting and more boyishly handsome. Here, he has tidy, blue shoulder-length hair (complete with long bangs that frame his face) and his eyes are given irises that don't display anywhere near the amount of harsh yellow that other versions of his eyes do. He also has a finer jawline than most of his comic book and adaptational counterparts.

* BigBrotherInstinct: Scott. His entire rivalry with the Brotherhood is based upon trying to protect the younger students from them, and motivated by past dealings. He hates Lance especially and shows apprehension about his and Kitty's relationship, likely because he remembers Lance's previous HairTriggerTemper tendencies and the time he tried to use Kitty's power for personal gain.

* BilingualBonus: In the episode "African Storm", what viewers might write off as made-up incantations are actually Kiswahili. Furthermore, the translations are kind of cool- for example, when the Houngan is [[spoiler: stealing Storm's powers]], what he is saying roughly translates into English as "meeting of the dark night, meeting of the dark night".

* JerkJock: Duncan Matthews, not surprisingly. Goes hand in hand with BullyingADragon in the third season. He eventually bites off more than he could chew when [[TookALevelInBadass Spyke returned]], getting himself arrested after an ill-conceived attack on the Morlocks.

** In "X-treme Measures", Ray is the first one to notice Callisto following Spyke and to go look for him in the sewers. While the Morlocks know him from the events of the "Day of Reckoning" two-parter, this is also due to the fact that, in the comics, Berzerker was a member of the Morlocks.

* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: Played Straight at times, especially with SHIELD, HYDRA or Military officers, however, the security guards at Juggernaut's prison as well as Nazi Soldiers seen during that Flash back episode with Logan & Captain America. Those were very clearly real.
