Added DiffLines:

* FingerlessGloves: Avalanche, Gambit, and Scarlet Witch. Just shows how [[RuleofCool badass they look wearing them]] whether in or out of uniform.
** Also all the Bayvilee Sirens (except Rogue) wore these type of gloves to go with their HellBentForLeather themed uniforms.

--> "It's like having 52 explosives tucked away in one little pocket."

Added DiffLines:

* BirdsOfAFeather: Cyclops and Rogue. While they never got together, and firmly remain as JustFriends, this is the most likely reason for why Rogue was attracted to Scott. Both have dangerous, uncontrollable powers, both lived sheltered lives, and have an older sibling like dynamic with younger students.

* EatingLunchAlone: In the episode ''Mutant Crush'', the Blob decides to sit by himself at a table away from everyone else rather than sit with the other Brotherhood members. It's because he [[FriendlessBackground hasn't made friends with them yet]].

* AirVentPassageway:
** Played with in the episode ''Rogue Recruit''. When the group is testing out the security of the mansion, Wolverine is able to go to many parts of the mansion through the vents, and suggests something be done about them later.
** Subverted in another episode ''Day of Recovery'', with the vent being only a few inches long, big enough for people to climb into, having a ladder inside, and Blob gets stuck. However, it also has a large amount of security lids which Cyke was able to close to keep Mystique from escaping.

* GentleGiant:
** The Blob. Even though he ends up as a villain of the show, joining the Brotherhood, but every once in a while you still see a gentler, warmer side shine through, if only for a moment specially in how he treats Todd "Toad" Tolansky, the local ButtMonkey, as a younger brother. And he was this towards Jean through most of his introductory episode, as she was [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe the only person who bothered to show him any kindness.]]
** Another villain, Colossus. In the two parter season three finale ''Dark Horizon'', where the X-Men teamed up with Magneto's Acolytes to try and save Rogue and stop the release of Apocalypse. The episode reveals that he is this trope via a conversion between Shadowcat and Nightcrawler while within the tomb.
--> '''Shadowcat''': I think we're close. Why don't you go up and join the Professor? I'll look for the others.
--> '''Nightcrawler''': ''(regarding Colossus)'' And leave you alone with Steel Face? Forget it, he shouldn't be trusted."
--> '''Shadowcat''': Oh, he's not that bad, kind of a softie if you ask me. He's just so quiet.
--> '''Colossus''': ''(after smashing through a wall to regroup with them)'' I, I grew concerned.
--> '''Shadowcat''': ''(gives Nightcrawler a smug 'you see?' kind of smirk)''

Added DiffLines:

* GrandFinale: The finale was a two parter, the very last episode entirely a global fight with many small characters coming back to help, it had foreshadowing, and the final moments showed a future with conflicts and situations similar to the comic universe.

%%* PubertySuperpower

to:

%%* PubertySuperpower* PubertySuperpower: Again it's X-Men. The franchise is very much the TropeMaker. Mutant powers usually manifest at puberty and this show [[AlternateContinuity reworks continuity]] to put most of the main characters ''in'' their teens.


Added DiffLines:

* TakenForGranite: Mystique is turned to stone by Apocalypse when she opens the final door to releasing him. In this case, it's eventually revealed that Apocalypse turned Mystique's shape-shifting abilities against her, and if Rogue absorbed her powers for just a moment, Mystique could break free. [[spoiler:She shoves her off a cliff instead, shattering her. However, it's not the real Mystique after all.]]

* KnowYourVines: In the episode ''Retreat'', Beast takes some of the younger students out on a nature study field trip to the California Redwoods. During the study trip, Evan picks up a plant (he doesn't know that it's poison ivy) and presents it to Beast while he's scratching a sudden rash. Later, he's seen sulking by a river as Kitty applies medicine cream to his rash spots. It's justified since he had stated beforehand that he's a "city kid" and he's failing in his social sciences class. So nature is really not he's forte.
