** In Internet culture, the red pill has become a meme linked with the men's rights movement and pick-up artists. Ir's also been co-opted by reactionaries who use it when educating people against liberalism and for their ideology. Ironically, the Wachowskis have come out as trans women, who red pillers tend to be against.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Heavily influenced by anime, religion and the western, the first film caused such a major shift in culture and SpecialEffects, with the proliferation of WireFu and BulletTime in action sequences that it was imitated constantly. The "bullet dodge" scene, in which Neo bends over backwards to avoid being hit by the Agent's shots, [[DeadHorseTrope has been parodied to death]], such that we don't realise (or remember) that it actually was cool for the time. Interestingly enough, it also suffered from OlderThanTheyThink when it premiered to a young audience who were not aware of the multitude of Eastern and literary influences in the movie (or ''Film/{{Blade}} doing BulletTime a year before). One major area the sequels suffered in was that they continued playing all this stuff like it was just as revolutionary, after the first film had inspired so many imitations.

*DeaderThanDisco: Zigzagged. The first movie is considered a sci-fi classic. The sequels, video games and extra media? Not so much.

* GenreTurningPoint: Western cinema has been lambasted for usually having terrible fight choreography compared to Asian cinema. This was the film where those fight choreographers from Asia got to show what they do in in Western cinema and a new standard for film fights in the West was born.

* EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory: "We do not know who was the first fan to decode the symbolism in the first movie..."



** Well there are a few scenes hinting at it on Trinity's part, they're just not very obvious.
** Weirdly enough, the sequels actually did a better job with this subplot than the original film.

** The term "Redpill" has been adopted by the more virulent and misogynist sections of the Men's Rights movement, to the point where it's the name of one of their biggest sub-Reddits. Their justification is that they have taken the red pill and "woken up" to "how the world really is" (i.e. they rant about [[StrawFeminist commie feminists secretly plotting to feminize everything]]). The irony of them naming themselves after a series partly made by a transwoman and featuring noted socialist Cornel West cameoing as a member of the council of Zion is, notably, entirely lost on them.
