* CoolGuns: The Minigun-Rifle-''thing''. [[BottomlessMagazines Impossibly-huge magazine capacity]], laser sight, flashlight, and the awesome rotating barrels. The guns were made by means of volting the GunAccessories (including a motorized "gatling" barrel) to a Calico M-950, in and of itself a cool (and [[RareGuns rare!]]) gun in RealLife.

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Simon Canton. The man was willing to hijack his own ship and sink it to keep himself financially afloat. That a sea monster ate everybody inside it before he arrived only eliminated the issue about having to kick the passengers out.



* DeliciousDistraction: [[spoiler: Hanover]] tries to turn ''Joey'' into one, wounding him and leaving him behind as bait to distract the pursuing tentacles.

* TheGreatRepair: The boat that was released during the initial monster attack on the cruise smashes Finnegan's ship, damaging it severely and leaving its engines nearly useless, so the crew enters the ship to search spare parts. [[spoiler:Teh situation becomes too dangerous for them to get the parts, so Finnegan rigs the boat to ram the cruise and set off the torpedoes it has on board.]]



* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Hanover initially started out as distrusting of Finnegan and his crew, but then started to gradually drop his hostility and shows a level of begrudging respect towards Finnegan when onboard the infested ship. [[spoiler:Then when the flooding hits, Hanover, when paired with Joey, pulls a DirtyCoward move by shooting Joey in the leg to feed to the creature and then tried to kill Joey when he himself is slowly eaten]].

** Canton is a corrupt asshole, but even he is horrified at the carnage the monsters left behind and insists to Finnegan that he was going to make the passengers evacuate before sinking the ship. [[spoiler:And then he admits that the monster killing everybody on board simplified the scam operation somewhat, and he tries to leave everybody to die.]]



** The ending definitely counts.

* MassOhCrap: In the kitchen scene every character in the room has an unspoken "holy fuck!" etched across their face when they see one of the monsters [[EnemyRisingBehind rise up behind an oblivious Mulligan]].

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Canton wanted to sink the cruise liner so he could reap the insurance money, but when Finnegan accuses him of trying to kill all the passengers Canton takes offense. He claims that he's just a crook, not a savage; he planned for all of them to live, as they would be safely transported off the ship before anyone could drown.
** Ultimately subverted when [[spoiler: Canton decides it would be better for everyone not named Canton to "go down with the ship."]]

* InsuranceFraud: Business mogul Simon Canton wanted to sink the cruise liner he built to cater exclusively to the mega-rich because despite all the money he poured into the project, he was still operating at a net loss and only the insurance money could save him from going bankrupt. His plan involved faking a take-over by pirates, then escorting the passengers to the lifeboats and having the pirates blow up the ship with a torpedo. Then of all things a giant octopus monster shows up and spoils his plan by eating everyone.

* InsideJob: Finnigan eventually figures out that Hanover was working with someone on the cruise liner for the planned heist that never materialized. That person turns out to be Canton, who was responsible for sabotaging the ship's systems before the monster happened to show up. This revelation infuriates the Captain, since it's entirely Canton's fault that they couldn't get out a distress signal.

* {{Fanservice}}: The entire female cast consists of Leila, who's Finnegan's beautiful Korean XO that gets a half-off-screen topless scene early on, and Trillian, who's played by gorgeous Creator/FamkeJanssen, wears a lovely, [[AbsoluteCleavage deeply cut]] [[LadyInRed red dress]] in the beginning and an only marginally less fanservice-y getup later on. Neither of them ever suffers [[BeautyIsNeverTarnished even the slightest injury]], or gets dirty for that matter.

* DisposableWoman: [[spoiler:Leila, Finnegan's foul-mouthed yet sympathetic right hand as well as Joey's girlfriend,]] is the first protagonist to be killed by the creatures. Thankfully we're spared the more gruesome details of her demise that many of the other characters get.

* DisposableWoman: [[spoiler:Leila, Finnegan's foul-mouthed yet sympathetic right hand as well as Joey's girlfriend,]] is the first protagonist to be killed by the creatures. Thankfully we're spared the more gruesome details of her demise that many of the other characters get. Her death still manages to deliver quite the punch the farther the story progresses, simply by how little recognition her gruesome fate gets from her crew mates. Aside from a gloomy "I don't think she made it" and a single tear shed by her boyfriend, it's like she never even existed after the first twenty minutes into the movie.
