* TheLoad: When he's aboard the Orca, Brody doesn't contribute all that much. He knows little about boats and less about sharks; even Hooper loses his temper with his mistakes.

* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Quint would rather drown than left at the mercy of the sea waiting for rescue.



* HeManWomanHater: It's not commented on, but the minute Quint sees Ellen standing on the dock next to his ship, he blows up and starts ranting about women. Then he sings [[CrossesTheLineTwice filthy sea chanty songs]] at the top of his lungs, seemingly to further antagonize her.



* MoneyDearBoy: [[PlayingWithATrope Exaggerated]]. When Brody attempts to radio the coast guard, Quint destroys the radio to ensure that he alone earns the reward, which is a fatal mistake for him.



%%* DumbassNoMore: Understandably an ignorant frightened



%%* SuitWithVestedInterests

to:

* {{Badass}}: Brody might not be a rugged hero and even ends up being TheLoad from time to time, but he's still a highly capable man.

Added DiffLines:

* ImplacableMan: The shark in the movie shrugs just about everything that is thrown at it. It's able to submerge with three whole barrels attached to it, shrugs of gunshots, machete stabs, harpoon stabs, etc. [[spoiler: It takes blowing its face up to finally kill it]].

Shark-fascinated marine biologist who was called to Amity island to help with the shark problem. He starts of as a white-collared college kid foil to Quint's blue collar gruffiness, but they come to an understanding with each other.
