* CashCowFranchise: With the exception of the third film, which underperformed in the wake of Tom Cruise's hype backlash due to some infamous antics on television around that time, each film has been among the top performers at the box office in its given year. The series has qualified for this trope to such a degree that Paramount -- in a disastrous TheNewTens that saw them lose control of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, the petering out of the ''Film/TransformersFilmSeries'' and ''Franchise/StarTrek'' franchises, and no end of high-profile bombs -- greenlit a seventh and eighth entry to be filmed back-to-back at the end of the decade.

* RealitySubtext: The strong chemistry between Ethan Hunt and Ilsa Faust is helped considerably by the fact that Tom Cruise and Rebecca Ferguson, who play them, have a very warm and friendly relationship in real life.


* SequelGap: The series constantly flirts with this, owing to the busy schedule of franchise lynchpin Creator/TomCruise. Of late the gap has been gradually narrowing, going from a 6 year pause between ''II'' and ''III'', to 5 between ''III'' and ''Ghost Protocol'', then 4 until ''Rogue Nation'', and now 3 years into ''Fallout''. The seventh and eight films are scheduled for 2021 and 2022, possibly a case of MovieMultipack.

* RecycledScript: Both the first and third movie involve [[spoiler: Ethan being set up by [[TheMole a mole]] in [=IMF=] who isn't revealed until near the end, and who tries to frame the boss of the organization who spends time as an AntiVillain trying to [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment hunt down Hunt]], with the audience left unclear if its because the boss really thinks Hunt is a traitor or because the boss ''is'' the traitor. In both their actions force Ethan to go rogue and steal the MacGuffin that the bad guys are after for them, and in both TheMole is in league with an arms dealer. Each movie sees Hunt's family being dragged into the plot to get at him, sees a fairly traditional [=IMF=] plot go off without a hitch only for the team to be ambushed after the fact, and features a reference ot Ethan evading airport security despite [=IMF=] putting "a guy at the airport".]]
