* {{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.

A paraplegic former U.S. Marine named Jake Sully is given a remotely-controlled Na'vi body called an "avatar" in order to communicate with the Na'vi and gain their trust, but the resident GeneralRipper has other ideas and wants to [[KillItWithFire remove]] [[HumansAreWarriors the Na'vi by force]]. Jake ends up torn between his humanity and the adopted Na'vi way of life, made harder by his growing romance with Neytiri, TheChiefsDaughter.

->"''This is why we're here. Because this little gray rock sells for $20 million a kilo. That's the only reason. This is what pays for the whole party, and it's what pays for your science. Those savages are threatening our whole operation. We're on the brink of war, and you're supposed to be finding me a diplomatic solution. So use what you've got and get me some results.''"

** [[spoiler:The Dragon ship and the makeshift bomber go out with huge kabooms that put Creator/MichaelBay to shame. {{Justified|Trope}} in case of the bomber, because it's loaded with [[MadeOfExplodium lots of explosives]].

* KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter: The small arms used by the humans aren't that dissimilar to ours -- in fact, in the background, the machine gun is an [=M60=] variant, although [[AllThereInTheManual other sources state]] that forces back on Earth have more advanced weapons, such as railguns, its just that the weapons used on Pandora are cheaper and easier to make and maintain, plus Pandora's very strong magnetic field and thick atmosphere make many weapons unreliable at best and useless at worst.

* ZergRush: Attempted by the Na'vi in the final battle. Didn't work very well, [[spoiler: until Eywa performs a much larger ZergRush -- this time with Titanotheres, who can actually withstand the heavy fire. And Viperwolves. And many many more Banshees. Capped off with a Thanator offering itself to Neytiri as an Epic Mount]].
