* FridgeBrilliance: All the continuity snarls and weird stuff on the Headscratchers page can be explained by a simple examination of perspective: the movie is about Logan getting his adamantium skeleton and losing his memory. Maybe the whole film is his jumbled perceptions trying to reconcile what happened, while he's getting help from Xavier in the present, and this is our window into it. YMMV on whether that would make it any better or worse.
* HilariousInHindsight: Real world instance: Fans had been clamoring for Gambit to appear in X-Men films since the first one. The public response from the directors and writers was "If we include him, we want to make him integral to the story. We're not going to just throw him in there because he's popular." Come this film, Gambit is in, fulfilling a minor role which could be handled by any character. It really seems like the studio executives just thought, "Who's a popular character we haven't used yet?"
** Also, the video game ends with Wolverine in a future with Sentinels. What happens in the end of TheWolverine?
* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: Averted. While it may not be on the level of the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'', it is still considered a satisfying and fun hack-n-slash that was better received than the film itself.
* SpecialEffectFailure: After three decent X-Men films, there's no reason Wolverine's claws should look so fake.
* TheyJustDidntCare: The film's treatment of Deadpool. It honestly does feel like they were ''trying'' to piss the fans off.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Ryan Reynolds' performance as Deadpool was one of the more consistently praised aspects of the film, which made it all the more frustrating to see them [[DroppedABridgeOnHim turn him into a Frankenstein monster for Wolverine to kill off in the climax]]. It's made all the more egregious because Deadpool is primarily known for his [[DeadpanSnarker snarky attitude]] and general [[GenreSavvy savviness to the world around him]]. Removing BOTH of those traits after just a few minutes of screentime is so perplexing that one wonders what the filmmakers were thinking.
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Everyone, except RyanReynolds and Danny Houston.
* UncannyValley: The CG [[spoiler:Xavier.]]
* WTHCastingAgency: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] with LievSchreiber, who's about a foot shorter than Tyler Mane, as Victor Creed. He's excellent in the role and pretty intimidating, but it's still a tad jarring.
