* AMechByAnyOtherName: The [[MiniMecha combat AMP suits]] used by the military, which are pretty much the descendants of the Power Loader from ''Film/{{Aliens}}'', or [[Franchise/StarCraft Terran Goliaths]]. They ''were'' originally developed as the equivalent of power loaders, but modified to carry armament and having been used on Earth in this capacity as well, particularly in environments dangerous/toxic to unprotected humans. At least their large cabin, with excellent view but poor protection, and lack of in-built weaponry heavily suggests this. Quaritch's suit is seen to have ''[[{{BFS}} a combat knife]]''. The manual, on the other hand, states that they are purpose-built for combat and that several armies back on Earth use them.

* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Played with.

* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Played with. On one hand, you have it played straight with RDA; an enormous, corrupt corporation with enough resources to field its own ''private army'' in numbers rivaling modern military's in our time, fully and unashamedly intend to wipe the natives of Pandora out of existence just so they can mine Unobtanium freely. On the other hand, there ''are'' humans, like Grace and later Jake, who want to work with the Na'vi, and are horrified by RDA's intentions for the planet and its inhabitants.
** Another complication is the state of Earth itself, according to the backstory: war-torn, exhausted, and polluted almost to being uninhabitable with companies like RDA having an iron grip on the populace. The only chance for humanity to survive seems to be colonizing other planets, but the catch is that it requires Unobtanium, which is vital to building the star ships needed for colonization, hence why the metal is so valuable. In short, humanity isn't just acting out of malice or some sort of misguided Manifest Destiny, they're on the brink of extinction and ''desperate'' for a solution.

A sequel has remained in DevelopmentHell for the better part of a decade, since James Cameron was interested in utilizing experimental technology to portray new environments (specifically, Pandora's [[AuthorAppeal oceans]]). Currently, there are four sequels planned for release in December 2018, December 2020, December 2022, and December 2023--although lead actress Sigourney Weaver has expressed some doubt that [[ScheduleSlip the first one will make its release window]]. Cameron is set to write and direct all of them.

* DeusExMachina: The Na'vi are starting to get hammered by the forces of humanity, when suddenly a herd of titanotheres and banshees come out of ''nowhere'' and rushes the humans, destroying almost all of them.

The implied explanation is that Jake's pre-battle talk with [[GeniusLoci Eywa]] made an impression, considering if they lost, the sky people would destroy ''everything'' living in the name of expansion.

* {{Heavyworlder}}: Inverted. Much of the reason the 10-foot-tall humanoid Na'vi can live very well on Pandora is because of the 20% weaker gravity putting far less strain on their bodies. While humans are stronger on Pandora than Earth thanks to decreased gravity, they are still weaker than native animals both proportionally and totally. The Colonel mentions the need for constant exercise to prevent muscle atrophy.
