* YouHaveToBelieveMe: Brody has the nerve to be indignant about no one believing him after he causes a mass panic over what turns out to be a school of bluefish. After this, he brings a photo to the council that we know is of the shark, but is unclear enough that you really can't blame them for not buying it. He could have at least waited to see if there were any better shots.

* NonMaliciousMonster: In the first half of the film, the shark only kills swimmers for food, seeing them as easy prey. And it only attacks by chance and is content with one or two victims before leaving the vicinity. It is subverted in the second half, when the crew of the ''Orca'' is out hunting for the shark. While its aggressive behavior can be seen as self-defense from the ''Orca'', the shark's actions suggest it intends to kill the entire crew regardless if they pose a threat to it or not. This can be best seen after the shark [[spoiler: sinks the ''Orca'' and eats Quint]]. Rather than leaving the nearly defenseless Brody alone, the shark attacks the police chief several times, which ultimately became its own undoing.

* HoistedByHisOwnPetard: The shark's ravenous appetite is its ultimate downfall. [[spoiler:Because it would eat anything, the shark didn't bother to spit out the scuba tank that Brody threw into its jaws.
