* SuperPersistentPredator: Taken to an extreme by the Fyrene Pit Fiend. Having its tongue blasted off and the inside of its mouth scorched wasn't apparently enough - it deliberately followed them to their camp to ''stage an ambush''.

Having its tongue blasted off and the inside of its mouth scorched wasn't apparently enough - it deliberately followed them to their camp to ''stage an ambush''. In an ironic twist, it also ''saves their lives'', forcing them out of the shelter just as a rock formation falls on it and crushes it - and the Pit Fiend.

* IdiotBall: Davidge, at first. He hounds Jerry down and inflicts a fatal wound on his fighter with his blasters. What does Davidge do? Follow him right into the planet's atmosphere. ''When he sees Jerry ejecting'', he just powers straight ahead, right on into Jerry's now-abandoned craft, causing the crash that kicks off the story proper.

He doesn't do much better on the planet at first...did he not have an inkling that maybe the Drac escape capsule and/or sidearm would have ''security features'' to them to incapacitate potential ambushers?

That Drac happens to be Jerry, and Davidge's attempted RoaringRampageOfRevenge is what kicks off the plot proper.
