** As a counterpoint, actually, Spock is both stronger and smarter than Khan. For all of his augmented potential, Vulcans are simply superior. The fact Spock is voluntarily subordinate to Kirk and his friend shows Khan's entire philosophy of superiority is nonsense and that he should be subordinate to SPOCK. Also, Spock giving him a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown is immensely satisfying.

* {{Woolseyism}}: During the bar scene with Scotty and Keenser, a piece of music played that had different lyrics depending on where it was released. For example, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu was chosen by Creator/JJAbrams himself to provide the song for the Japanese release, which is titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2GQAk_lRy4 "Into Darkness".]]

* HilariousInHindsight: Both Creator/PeterWeller (Marcus) and Creator/BruceGreenwood (Pike) have portrayed Franchise/Batman in animation prior to this film, Weller having played the elderly Caped Crusader in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'' and Greenwood having portrayed (alternate-universe, younger versions of) him in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood'' and coming back for ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''. This film may be the closest we can get to having Batman in a Star Trek film yet, with ''two'' actors who've played him before, no less!

* NeverLiveItDown: Poor Creator/JJAbrams gets {{misblamed}} for lying about [[spoiler:Harrison being Khan]] when it was really Paramount that enforced. That he absolutely '''''hated''''' lying about the unnecessary plot twist was conveniently ignored in favor of labeling him as a constantly LyingCreator. It got so bad that people mistakenly used the debacle as an excuse to presume that Abrams was lying about '''anything and everything''' leading up to ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/TheForceAwakens'', leading to a whole lot of FanWank. A few years later, Damon Lindeloff admitted that they'd vastly underestimated how quickly fans could multisource theories in this day and age, and they should have just come clean when everyone figured it out.

** ''Into Darkness'' is often ridiculed for being the movie that tried to capitalize on [[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan a previous film]] by basing almost its entire final act on it.
** This film will also never live down making death trivial due to the poorly implemented [[ChekhovsGun tribble]] plot-device.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: There is never any reason given for Carol to be changing in front of Kirk in the middle of a conversation, and it's never mentioned again. It seems to exist just for the trailer.

* HarsherInHindsight: The "go put on a red shirt" moment doesn't have the same humorous tone after Anton Yelchin's untimely death.

** James T. Kirk's [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice to save the ''Enterprise'' was a tear-jerking moment, but thankfully it is temporary. Comes 2017 in [[Film/WonderWoman2017 an unrelated movie]], Chris Pine starred as another character who also pulled a heroic sacrifice in a flying craft for the needs of the many, but this time he's KilledOffForReal. The person who witnessed his death also screams in anguish just like Spock did in this movie.]]

** Despite its writers' {{Anvilicious}} attempts to decry militarization and aggression, quite a few people who saw the movie ended up rooting for [[spoiler:[[WellIntentionedExtremist Alexander Marcus]]]] and his goal in militarizing Starfleet for a war against the Klingon Empire. Seemingly, [[spoiler:Marcus']] only detraction is that he went about it in the manner of a standard GeneralRipper, to the point that he brought [[spoiler:[[BigBad Khan]], an infamous genetically engineered warlord that nearly took over the Earth long ago, out of [[HumanPopsicle cold storage]] to utilize as a slave ([[TooDumbToLive thinking he could actually control Khan]])]], as well as attempted to purposely start said war with the Klingons (using the oblivious crew of the ''Enterprise'' to do so no less) as opposed to letting it happen naturally.Even [[spoiler:Marcus']] actor [[spoiler:Creator/PeterWeller]] [[WordOfStPaul roots for his character, saying he disliked how the public viewed him as a villain and has this to say about him]].

** The underwear scene was prominent in the trailer, hence the notice.
