* Quicksilver tries to reach Jean by running on an exploded house's flying debris (seen in slow motion as usual with his SuperSpeed) as she starts using her powers against the X-Men after meeting her father. And, very much like Superman did with Flash in ''Film/{{Justice League|2017}}'', Jean [[OhCrap has a perception of time and space that's fast enough to spot him]], and blows him aside.

* Meta-Awesome: This was Simon Kinberg's directorial debut and despite studio interference (especially with Fox being bought by Disney) the film flopping and receiving worse reviews than the [[Film/XmenTheLastStand previous attempt]], Kinberg got praise from none other than Creator/ChrisClaremont, who wrote the original comic. He even prefers this [[CreatorPreferredAdaptation adaptation to The Last Stand.]] It Also doubles as Heartwarming, especially considering the backlash the film got.

** The whole battle with the D'Bari is something to behold. The few of them we'd seen for most of the film were enough to totally overwhelm any force they came up against. Then the X-Men get free and ''it's all over.'' They attack in scores, much more numerous than they appeared to be before just so every X-Man would have something to do - ''any one of them'' would've been enough for all the D'Bari we'd seen in previous scenes. Vuk having absorbed a portion of the Phoenix Force earlier is the only thing that makes her a threat, and she's the only one who ''is'' a threat... until Jean manages to get control of the Phoenix inside her, at which point it's ''truly'' over.

* Scott vs Magneto. Rather than a one-sided beatdown one expects, Scott more than holds his own against him, simply vaporizing and didging every metal debris thriwn at him and overpowering Magneto's magnetic force with his eye beams. And nearly getting the better of him before Hank blindsides him

** Nightcrawler finally gets to shine. After a human soldier whose son is a big fan of him is killed by the D'Bari, Nightcrawler goes ''nuts'' [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge and starts ruthlessly taking down every D'Bari he runs into]] not unlike how his alternate future self's assault on the White House in ''Film/X2XMenUnited''. He tops that off by teleporting the D'Bari responsible for killing the soldier on to the train track, before teleporting away, leaving the D'Bari to be [[RailroadTracksOfDoom ran over by the train]].

**Though we don't get anything as complex as the "Time in a Bottle" or "Sweet Dreams" sequences, Quicksilver again shows us just how fast he can be. At one point, Nightcrawler's teleportation appears to stand perfectly still. ''He is faster than teleportation.'' In another scene, it's Storm's lightning that appears to be standing still compared to him.



** Then Jean disintegrates all the remaining D'Bari who attack her, and eventually destroys Vuk by overcharging her with the Phoenix Force, on the ground first, then in space.
