* {{Fanservice}}: Well, surely the one gorgeous female member of the scientific expedition would make sure to pack a skintight swimsuit, so that she can go swimming in a South American jungle swamp that could not possibly have any weird bugs or parasites (or gill men, for that matter).

* AccidentallyAccurate: Oddly, the drunken Riverboat captain's statement that the Creature is "stronger than that which you call evolution" was probably a more accurate explanation for how evolution actually works than the "scientists" who seem to believe that [[EvolutionaryLevels a "living fossil" like the creature is "less evolved" than more recent creatures.]] The truth is, such creatures happen because they've achieved a form that's more-or-less ideal to their environment, and any deviations would be out-competed.

Added DiffLines:

* InformedAttribute: Kay is allegedly a scientist, but doesn't do a single solitary scientific thing for the entire movie. She's purely a damsel in distress who seems to be treating the expedition like a pleasure cruise.
