* The entire opening scene is this doubled with {{Tearjerker}}. Seriously, this ''comic-book superhero movie'' opens with a horrifyingly realistic depiction of Jewish prisoners being herded into a concentration camp with Nazis filing them into two separate groups. The sight of Erik's mother [[AdultFear screaming and trying to go back for him once they're taken from him while her husband tries to get her to stop]] is frankly almost as disturbing as seeing 12-year-old Erik's distress over the situation as well. And then we see that the two of them are heading towards a large building with a tall chimney... All in all, apart from Erik ripping up the gates, the whole scene looks akin to something you'd see in Film/SchindlersList or Film/TheBoyInTheStripedPyjamas.
* Wolverine seeing that he’s inadvertently stabbed Rogue through the chest in his CatapultNightmare. Both Anna Paquin’s pained convulsing and Hugh Hackman’s desperate calls for help put you right in the moment.
* Toad suffocating Jean Grey with his toxic spit is both this and NauseaFuel. When Cyclops comes to her rescue, she is on the floor panicking, unable to remove the gunk covering her mouth and nose.

Added DiffLines:

* Magneto very quickly becomes TheDreaded when he comes face-to-face with Wolverine the first time, when it's revealed he can effortlessly subdue him [[AchillesHeel thanks to his adamantium skeleton]]. He even stands subtly bending his claws and has Logan hissing in pain.
-->'''Magneto (curiously):''' Does that metal run ''all'' the way through your body?
** It even comes into play before the final confrontation.
-->'''Wolverine:''' Everyone get out of here!
-->'''Cyclops:''' Why?
-->'''Wolverine:''' [[OhCrap I can't move!]]


* Unlike his portrayal in the comics, this incarnation of ComicBook/{{Sabretooth}} is akin to a feral animal. In many ways he feels like a predecessor to [[Film/{{Logan}} X-24]].
