SPOILER: The X-Films' title sequences features a weapon used by the villain of each film, backed by the X-Men's Cerebro device. In this film the title appears on the side of the Nazi coin Shaw gives to young Erik Lensherr, which he later uses against Shaw. As this is a prequel, Cerebro does not appear.

Part of the closing credits take place in a sequence of X-symbols, chromosomes and DNA strands (reminiscent of the opening credits to Dr. No (1962)).
