** At one point, Treadwell drops the f-bomb 19 times in 45 seconds. For frame of reference, that's one more than SteveMartin's famous rant at the rental car lady in ''PlanesTrainsAndAutomobiles''. Several times, Treadwell's rant is muted, once for Herzog to narrate, and another because Treadwell starts making personal attacks, which Herzog says is "a line this film will not cross," but it's clear he is laying down a carpet of profanity.

* DisasterDominoes: Treadwell decided to go back to the Grizzly Maze on a whim after an altercation on the airport. [[FromBadToWorse It gets worse from there.]]

* ClusterFBomb: Recording at the end of one summer, Tim is attempting to sum up his experiences of the past few months, but abruptly breaks into a profane, frustrated rant about poachers, tourists, the government and the wildlife services. It goes on for several minutes, almost none of which Herzog cuts out.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Tim ''[[AvertedTrope wasn't]]''. But since 19 he pretended to be one to fake a MysteriousPast, and eventually had his name legally changed (Treadwell, although a name in his family tree, wasn't his own).

** Immediately after that, Treadwell notes that these animals, "can kill, can bite, can decapitate.''

* {{Hypocrite}}: Tim routinely insulted tourists, which he considered akin to poachers... despite the fact he came into contact with the bears for the first time as a tourist himself. He also considered that the park rangers' plane that flew over the area ''twice a month'' was harassing the bears. The park rangers point out that ''Treadwells'' actions could actually put the bears at real risk of harm and death. By familiarizing them with human contact, he increased the likelihood that they would approach human habitation seeking food, and cause a confrontation in which animal control would have to kill them. For extra irony, the Park rangers noted that there had never been a recorded incident of poaching at this national park.
** One particularly telling scene features him waxing rhapsodic over the corpse of a fox about how sacred all life is...then swatting a fly away from the fox's eye without any sense of irony.

* MeetCute: Treadwell's ex-girlfriend, Jewel Palovak, told Herzog that they met when they both got in trouble at work on the same day, him for doing a SillyWalk in front of customers and her for accidentally starting a small fire. Their relationship didn't become romantic until sometime later, but the incident made them fast friends on the spot.

* NeverFoundTheBody: Harshly averted. Treadwell's severed head, spine, and arm were found, with the watch still ticking on it, along with a ribcage that may have been Amie's. And then, once the authorities killed the bear that ate him, they found the rest of him (and Amie) inside it.

** Considering the murderous grizzly was a rogue bear, meaning it did not know Treadwell, and generally, rogue bears tend to be sociopathic among grizzlies.

** According to those who have heard it, the most disturbing part isn't the attack at all, it's hearing Amie scream as she is left alone in the woods as Tim is dragged off to be eaten, she stands there and screams, and it's made even worse as the bear then comes back...

* UnrequitedLoveLastsForever: Kathleen, a close friend of Tim, repeatedly says she loves Tim, and even Herzog points it out when he adds "She says she was just a close friend" doubtfully after she mentions she has his ashes.

** The director of the Alutiiq Museum is clearly uncomfortable about speaking ill of the dead, but when asked for his honest opinion on Treadwell, he is almost as blunt: Treadwell had no business interacting with the bears in the way he did, and his actions did more harm than good.

** Late in the film, Treadwell is standing by his camp, noting that anyone not experienced in doing what he's doing will die in the grizzly maze. Then a subtitle appears, stating that the location is Treadwell's death is directly behind him.

* BerserkButton: Treadwell gets uncharacteristically upset and profane when a fox steals his hat. And later it gets worse when he goes on an unnerving rant about poachers.
