Added DiffLines:

** While it's a tearjerker, the opening scene where a young Erik begins manifesting his powers prying the gates open while he screams for his parents and the Nazis have a difficult time regaining him, letting the audience know who that is.


* Mystique gives a Kelly first hand (or rather, feet) lesson on the anger of being oppressed after being forced to listen to his racist drivel about locking mutants away in concentration camps while disguised as his bodyguard.
--> '''Mistique: (With seething, righteous anger)''' You know, people like '''''you''''' are the reason I was afraid to go to school as a child. (''Literally'' kicks Kelly's racist ass unconscious.)
** Heck pretty much any time Mystique is on screen.

* Toad gets a wonderful moment in the first movie when he utterly ''trounces'' Cyclops, Storm and Jean without even breaking a sweat. AdaptationalBadass, thy name is Mortimer Toynbee.
** And then, Storm trounces him and gets him fried. Yea, while it did stop Toad's pretty cool moment, it took quite the guts and raw power.
* Mystique revealing herself out of focus then proceeding to kick Senator Kelly's arse or pretty much any time Mystique is on screen.
* Cyclops dispatching Sabertooth and Magneto, while also coming up with a plan that uses every X-Men's power to their advantage.


Added DiffLines:

* Storm blasting Sabes through a wall with lightning while being choked by him, and to Sabretooth for having not a scratch on him
* Toad takes Cyclops out of the fight by simply taking his visor, not even needing a punch

* Cyclops dispatching Sabertooth and Magneto, while also coming up with a plan that uses every X-Men's power to their advantage.
** Heck, credit has to be given to Logan as well, since taking out Sabretooth was his plan, and then to Jean for working it out in seconds. To elaborate, Magneto has used his powers to restrain the X-Men, and then ties up Scott so that he is facing Jean and then makes Sabretooth remove his visor to prevent him from escaping. So what does Logan do? He swipes the visor from Sabes, and brings it to Jean, who uses her powes to levitate it in front of Scott with it directed at Sabes while simultaneously convincing Scott to open his eyes, leading Sabes to getting blasted out through the side of the statue.
