** The film's plot about animals going free due to abuse and the police gunning them down became a whole lot more darker following the mass animal release in Zanesville Ohio, where 49 animals were deliberately let out of their cages by their owner. The police were forced to shoot all animals dead to protect the public.

** This is easily handwaved by Caesar being exposed to the genetic cure while in the womb. Apes other than Caesar and his adult son are much more ape-like ([[BiggerIsBetter if a little bigger]]).

* HarsherInHindsight: Koba killing Jacobs. In the context of this film, it's a triumph against an AssholeVictim oppressor. However, in the context of [[Film/DawnOfThePlanetOfTheApes the sequel]], it's Koba's first kill, and he happened to like the taste....

* GeniusBonus: Caesar explains why the apes should work in teams by using a bundle of sticks. In ancient Rome, from which Caesar owes his name, a bundle of sticks (or "fasces") was a symbol of authority.
** Which in turn was where the word "fascism" comes from.

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: This film was widely mocked before release as appearing to be an ill attempt to revive what was pretty much a dead franchise, especially after a bomb of a remake ten years before. Then it came out and, to everyone's surprise, turned into a critical success, with a groundbreaking performance by Creator/AndySerkis, as well as a commercial success, bringing hope back to the series.

* HilariousInHindsight: The SpreadingDisasterMapGraphic in the credits is far from funny. However, [[VideoGame/Plague Inc the mobile game it ultimately inspired]] uses a rather similar way of telling where disease spreads. Bonus points because by the time of the [[Film/DawnOfThePlanetOfTheApes sequel]], 20th Century Fox made a deal with the creators of Plague Inc. to allow use of the Simian Flu in their game, bringing the connection full-circle.

** Making it worse is that it comes ''immediately'' after the absolute {{Narm}} of the gratuitous and forced CallBack to the original film's most famous line.
