Added DiffLines:

** Principal Kelly's increasingly draconian methods to run Bayville High didn't even tried to conceal that were bullying the mutant students (and every single speech he made afterwards always included a barely-concealed "mutants are different from us" section, sometimes even calling it a kind of disability).

* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: In the finale, [[spoiler: Xavier reveals that he saw the future, with notes such as people still persecuting mutants, Magneto helping train some of the New Mutants, Jean becoming the Dark Phoenix (something foreshadowed a few times in the show prior), Colossus and X-23 having joined the X-Men, the Brotherhood working for S.H.I.E.L.D., and Nimrod leading the Sentinels]].



* AdaptationalHeroism AND AdaptationalVillainy: The Brotherhood and Acolytes fit both, amazingly, with only Toad staying true to [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain his comic book counterpart morality]].
** Added Villainy: Pietro and Wanda both only became villains because Magneto saved their asses and they owed him, both of them eventually became aware of his true nature when they joined the Avengers, while Pyro was a somewhat unstable and violence prone LargeHam, he had an undying loyalty to his friends and eventually died a hero. In the show, Pietro and Pyro are [[TheSociopath literal Sociopaths]], while Wanda is a perpetually angry and dangerously unstable girl with sympathetic, but NOT heroic qualities. Gambit was at least heroic GentlemanThief in the comics (despite his start as an UnwittingPawn for Mister Sinister), while here he's described as 'amoral' and only caring of personal gain but with a soft spot, turning him from an AntiHero into an AntiVillain.
** 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 Magneto because his family is being threatened and Professor X's vision shows he is destined to join the X-Men.
** Callisto, from the very start is a truly kind soul, contrast to her comics self, where she was basically a prettier female Jabba The Hutt what with her [[MadeASlave treatment]] of [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe Angel.]] Here, she healed Evan of the poison he drank and even offered him sanctuary now that his mutation was warping his appearance.
** Added Heroism: Avalanche of the comics was similar to Pyro of the comics (the two even being minor HeteroSexualLifePartners), but he was always a PsychoForHire who eventually retired to become a bar manager who, while no longer opposing them, resented the X-Men and superheroes at large for interfering with his life. Here, he was merged with Rictor, and bounced back and forth between thug with a HairTriggerTemper, a Hotheaded NiceGuy, [[AFatherToHisMen A Brother To His Team]], and NobleDemon, who resented the X-Men due to his distaste for how much hard work they do and his mutual animosity with Scott. Blob was close, though his friendship with Toad made him slightly more morally light than his comic self. Sabretooth, meanwhile, is his [[SarcasmMode ever lovably]] psychotic, morally [[WouldHitAGirl reprehe]][[WouldHurtAChild nsible]] self, BUT, as with most adaptations for some strange reason, he's fanatically loyal to Magneto, while the comic Sabretooth would be unable to stand working with him for more than a few hours before stabbing him in the back. Mastermind, lastly, is mostly the same, but with his spine removed so he's unquestionably obedient to Magneto and mostly uses his powers to avoid being throttled, while his comic self would gladly go after the X-Men on his own, with or without Magneto.

* MostFanficWritersAreGirls: It's interesting to note that this series has, by a pretty decent margin, the most fanfics on fanfiction.net (nearly 14,000) of any X-Men property, including the movies and comics. This is likely due to the show being one of the few Marvel products that drew a strong female fanbase. Perhaps due to the youth of the characters and focus on the romantic subplots. Compare it to the recently canceled WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen which has very few fics written about it despite having been on the air since 2008.
** Easy to see why so many are based/came from the second season, which had the Brotherhood act more sympathetic (Providing more guys to use or hook up with), more romance plots to the point some became [[RomanticPlotTumor pointless for the plot]], and added more characters to be used. Also likely why the most fanfictions star Rogue (InNameOnly) and Gambit.

** Plus some of the character relationships are ripped straight from the comics, such as Kitty being a little freaked out by Wolverine and Nightcrawler before developing deep friendships with both of them.
** There's also a costuming one as Nightcrawler is the only X-Man who wears his original comic-book costume (With yellow gloves referencing the uniform he wore in Dave Cockrum's original pitch).
** The season 2 premier has Jean on the championship soccer team. In celebration of their efforts the school has a rather nifty effect of having a statue of their team mascot, a hawk, with it's wings on fire. Any X Men fan will spot this as a nod to Jean's later persona and codename, Phoenix.

* ShipTease: There were more than a few Gambit and Rogue moments during the show's run (namely "Cajun Spice" in the final season), but nothing much came of it. (Worth noting that in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:XMEFullRoster.jpg final shot of the team at the very end of the series]], he has his arm around her shoulders. However, in another shot in the same sequence implied to be further into the future, he is absent, suggesting that it doesn't last.)

** Not to mention the [[OfficialCouple Scott and Jean]] moments throughout the first two seasons and half of the third. It was inevitable, we were all just waiting for them to ''get to the point''.

** It's revealed that Magneto lived through WorldWarII, but managed to maintain his youth by having his age artificially dialed back, which actually ''is'' accurate to the comics. [[note]] He does it intentionally here, but in the comics it was the result of him being turned into a baby by Alpha the Ultimate Mutant and later aged back by Erik the Red[[/note]] By contrast, the movies sidestepped the issue by making him a much older man, and the '90s cartoon just made him a refugee from a modern-day [[{{Ruritania}} Eastern European nation]].

* SpotlightStealingSquad: While episodes did alternate between the six leads, Cyclops and Rogue were always center stage for the most important storylines. Toad also got a rather large amount of attention, and his own (thoroughly obnoxious for some) theme music.

* TheWorfEffect: Wolverine ''seriously'' suffers from this throughout the show. Which is actually ''progress'' from the comics where he's a sort of GodModeSue.

* TooDumbToLive: Bobby and the New Mutants, more so the former than the latter. To stress just how bad it is, they ''stole the X-Jet'' and took it for a joyride. As if this in itself weren't stupid enough, Bobby, the pilot, hadn't even managed to fly the simulator successfully for longer than a minute despite several tries. Granted, he was doing dangerous stunts in said simulator and didn't repeat them outside it, but still... Thankfully, Kitty had snuck aboard with Lance to get them out of that mess.
** 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''.

Basically being a more rounded character version that the fans enjoyed more in one episode than all the other episodes he appeared in..

** Aside from retaining his real name and powers, James Madrox a.k.a Multiple has nothing in common with his comic book counterpart (who is around the same age as Cyclops and has the code name Multiple ''Man'').
** Due to being an {{expy}} of an X-Men character named Julio Esteban Richter aka Rictor, Lance has almost nothing in common with the Avalanche of the comics outside of the team affiliation and powers.
** Due to notably taking huge liberties with the character (especially with his design and origin), Gambit here has very little in common with his comic book counterpart outside of his name, powers, and relationship with Rogue.
