* EmergencyAuthority: This was a critical plot point. The American nuclear submarine ''Alabama'' last received a confirmed communique that a breakaway Soviet state was fueling their nuclear missiles. When further communication with Washington was lost, the Captain acted on the Emergency Protocol that Russian missiles were getting ready to launch and to launch a preemptive strike against Russia. The Executive Officer had to organize a mutiny to prevent the Captain from starting World War [=III=].

* HeroesLoveDogs: Okay, Ramsey's more of an AntiHero (or AntiVillain, depending on how you look at it), but he really does love his dog. Hunter, who's higher up on the heroic scale, is also fond of the dog.

* Foil: As much as the movie plays up the differences between them, in many ways Hunter is a younger Ramsey. Like the Captain, Commander Hunter has no qualms sacrificing the lives of three crewmen if it means saving the ship. As "cultured" as Hunter is, if you pay attention, you'll notice that in his state room, Captain Ramsey always has some sort of classical or opera music playing. Additionally, each man is capable of rallying various crew to their cause with little more than a word.

* DefconFive: Actually used correctly. The crisis starts out at DEFCON 4 and cycles up to DEFCON 2 when it looks like a missile launch is imminent.

* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: A US submarine gets word that some {{Renegade Russian}}s are preparing to launch some nukes they've managed to get ahold of and are ordered to launch their own nukes first. Then a second message is LostInTransmission regarding the launch, and the crew soon tears itself in two between those who want to launch nukes now, and those who want to confirm the intent of the second message. Eventually, the Captain is put in a position where he is threatening another officer with a gun to try to and get the launch codes. The officer, who is the only one who can access those codes, refuses to turn them over. The captain counts down... and then doesn't go through with the shooting it because if he kills the officer, no one on the ship will be able to use the nukes. [[IWillPunishYourFriendForYourFailure The Captain gets around it by threatening to shoot the officer's subordinate and friend instead]].

* GeneralRipper:
** Radchenko not only takes control of an ICBM base but starts fueling the missiles with the intent to actually ''use'' them.
** Ramsey is all too eager to launch the nukes when the order arrives and is unwilling to wait for the counter-order that was cut off during a comms blackout.
