** In Internet culture, someone who holds to a specific ideology (be it religious or political) is said to have been "red pilled" if they have seen sufficient evidence or statistics that cause them to doubt, question or altogether disown that ideology. The documentary "The Red Pill" - oddly absent from this wiki - is a high profile case of this happening in real life.

Added DiffLines:

* FanonDiscontinuity: The sequels, to some, ''Online'' to several. ''The Animatrix'' fair better with fans.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: All over the place given the series's penchance for MindScrew, but [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkMU1mKdwPI one surprisingly popular theory]] is that [[TheChosenOne The One]] is not Neo, but actually [[spoiler:[[BigBad Agent Smith]]]].

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: A common theory was that the "real world" Neo and the other redpills awoke to was a secondary Matrix built as a failsafe in case anyone in the "inner Matrix" broke out, so that the Machines would have two layers of control and security. Despite explaining numerous potential plot holes and providing a lot of FridgeBrilliance, this theory was ultimately proven untrue.

* BrokenBase: When [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/matrix-reboot-works-at-warner-bros-986292 news of a reboot broke out]], it gave out a lot of mixed feelings where there are fans who want the franchise to be left alone while there are those who think a reboot could work given [[{{Sequelitis}} how the sequels turned out]].

* CaliforniaDoubling: In the scene in which Neo says "I used to eat lunch there. Good noodles", the car is clearly driving through the Chinatown end of George Street in Sydney's CBD. Of course, you also see the Sydney Tower and the Maritime Services Board control tower on the city's skyline.

* CaliforniaDoubling: In AngstWhatAngst: Neo suffers no hesitation or guilt whatsoever in slaughtering the scene in which Neo says "I used to eat lunch there. Good noodles", the car lobby guards. While this is clearly driving through the Chinatown end of George Street in Sydney's CBD. Of course, you technically also see true of Morpheus and Trinity ''they'' have been doing this for a long time; Neo seems to be happy to kill the Sydney Tower and moment he has the Maritime Services Board control tower on the city's skyline.opportunity to.

* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: This film created a whole new style of visual effects so spectacular that the film was the first one to ''ever'' beat a ''Franchise/StarWars'' film at the Best Visual Effects Oscar.

** The term "Red Pill" has been appropriated by several kinds of extremist societies on the Internet, including (but far from limited to) anti-feminist, misogynist and transphobic ones, and forms the title of one of the most controversial subreddits. The franchise's creators, The Wachowski Brothers have since transitioned into women and are now known as just The Wachowskis.

** In Internet culture, the red pill has become a meme linked with many movements that believe the majority of the world is operating under a collective cultural delusion akin to being plugged into the matrix, such as Men's Rights activists stating that much of the cultural narrative of male power and female oppression in the West is a myth. It's also been co-opted by people who use it when educating people against liberalism and for their ideology.
