* EnemyRisingBehind: When the DwindlingParty reaches the kitchen, Mulligan wants to hole up there for a last stand as he thinks that it's the only place on the ship where they'll be save from the man-eating giant worms. This results in a MexicanStandoff when Finnegan and Hanover disagree, but before it can get violent one of the monsters slowly rises behind Mulligan.

** Canton threatens Trillian with a flare gun, saying it "might not be quick, but it'll be interesting." Fortunately for her, [[BigDamnHeroes Finnegan shows up]] before this can be tested.

* BolivianArmyEnding: The ending features the heroes [[spoiler:now stranded on an island that seems to have more monstrous creatures they have to deal with. We cut to credits right before they come face to face with something that sounds like Godzilla.]]



* SoWhatDoWeDoNow: The ending [[spoiler: with the heroes now stranded on an island that seems to have more monstrous creatures they have to deal with. The page quote is the last line as they find this out.]]

** [[spoiler:Also, the graveyard of sunken ships we see at the beginning seems to indicate that the creature long ago figured out that ships were easy to attack and filled with tasty morsels. This is probably the first time it encountered anything on a ship that put up serious resistance.]]

* OnlyInItForTheMoney: The mercenaries are obviously being paid handsomely to help Canton go through with his little scheme. And then there's Finnegan's motto:
--> "If the cash is there, we do not care."

* PunchClockVillain: If it weren't the fact they're thieving and RuthlessModernPirates, if not brash and boisterous, the mercenaries would count as they are only concerned with completely their mission to force out the passengers to make way to sink the cruise liner, while being hardened, trigger-happy and somewhat crooked, they are not {{sadist}}s. Finnegan and his boat crew would also count, perhaps even more so then the mercenaries, with the Punch Clock side outweighing the Villain side.

* HateSink: Simon Canton. The monsters are just predators that live to consume, and most of the mercenaries have some redeeming qualities such as determination, caring for each other except those not in their personal group like Finnegan, their [[AffablyEvil unique wise-cracking characterizations]] and being [[EvilIsCool badasses]]. Canton however is ''only'' selfish, cowardly, and greedy. [[spoiler:He's not so bad at first (having clearly established with Finnegan that he had planned for everyone aboard the boat to be safely evacuated), but he eventually tries to leave the other survivors for dead, then tries to kill Trillian, shrugs off the all the passengers' deaths because he can still scam the insurance agency if the ship sinks, and tries to steal Finnegan's boat. He meets a deliciously KarmicDeath.]]
