* OurDemonsAreDifferent: [[spoiler:Ferriman]] is a wicked former human who became a servant of Hell because of his sins. He collects souls for his infernal masters, calling himself a "salvager". He doesn't make deals, and instead tries to tempt people into committing crimes out of the sin of {{Greed}} to damn their own souls, which he can then take "home" when he fills his quotum. He can shapeshift, recover from gunshot wounds, [[spoiler:and mark ghosts to become his servants in death.]]
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: They're the trapped souls of dead people on a GhostShip. They're intangible and can project (false) visions to living people. They're not all malevolent, as their morality is largely informed by their personalities in life. Some actually try to help the living, while others try to kill them because [[spoiler:they've been marked by one of Hell's accountants.]]

If they don't fall for Greed, he will attempt to get them with Wrath or Lust. Failing that, innocent souls will still be trapped on the ship if they die onboard, so he can still take them to Hell even though they haven't been damned.

* ManipulativeBastard: When [[spoiler:Ferriman]] is exposed as his true self his mastery of personal manipulation becomes evident. His routine is to pretend to be a harmless guy leading greedy people to a lot of gold, then manipulating them into killing themselves one by one so their souls become corrupted and he can take them to Hell. After he's done he lures another crew there, rinse, repeat.

* TheCorrupter: It's [[spoiler:Ferriman]]'s job to bring out the absolute worst in people, because if they commit enough sins they'll effectively damn their souls, which he can then harvest and take to Hell. He pressures a segment of the crew on the Graza into starting a complete orgy of violent murder of everyone else on board so they can get their hands on all the gold he brought with him. [[spoiler:He tries the same routine on the present day salvage crews, but it's only Epps who takes a definite stand against his material offers at the end.]]

* DiagonalCut: Happens in the prologue. When the cables tear through the Antonia Grazia, dismembering everyone on-board, most cuts are horizontal as the victims are standing. The captain is dancing with a little girl and bends in an odd pose to protect her and, after a few seconds of delay to look around at the carnage, the girl watches the cut form across his head.

* EvilAllAlong: [[spoiler:Ferriman poses as a meek weather service pilot to lure the crew of the ''Arctic Warrior'' to the Graza. He proves himself useful throughout the film and even seemingly saves Epps from an insane Murphy, but it's all an act. He's actually working for Hell and started the massacre on the ''Graza''. It's implied he's done this many times over, with the fresh bodies in the laundry room being from a previous crew he led into the trap.]]

** He explains that while the souls of those who gave in to greed, lust, or other deadly sins are "marked" and thus under his control, the souls of the innocent victims like Katie and the Captain are merely trapped, and are still themselves. He finds this annoying.
