* AntiVillain: General Ross, as opposed to his ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' version. Considering the long history of [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Hulk comics]] neither is exactly inaccurate to the comics. He's portrayed as a concerned general who deeply loves his daughter and is just trying to stop the hulk menace, but goes out of his way to pursue and distrust Banner [[SinsOfOurFathers because of who his father is]].

* DeathGlare: David Banner when Ross shuts down his experiments. PapaBear Ross to Bruce Banner, much to the latter's confusion as he's never met Betty's father before. Bruce of course does this whenever he's about to start HulkingOut.

** Seriously, will General Ross ever get that shooting ? stopping Hulk, hurting Betty = Hulk turning into Banner? Bruce spends the entire movie trying to lay low and keep things under control. Then the military catches him, tries to perform experiments on him, he turns into the Hulk, and they make things WORSE by hitting him with heavy artillery, making him angrier than before.

* MAdeOfIron: Talbot gets literally punched through the wall by Hulk and is still conscious, and takes a second hit to go down. Though RealityEnsues that he has several injuries, including a broken and an dislocated neck and length hospital recovery, but still, he shouldn't be in one-piece, let alone alive and walking.

* GroinAttack: Hulk does this to himself in one of the film's truly funny moments, during the scene when the tanks are attacking him. When he tears the turret off one of them, he's standing over the barrel and racks himself. (See [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wrNMPRriwc here]], at 0:36 in.)

** He also punches one of the Hulk Dogs in the groin, after lifting it up by its legs.

* ThisWontHurtABit: As Talbot prepares to shove a nasty-looking drill-syringe in the Hulk's eye, he quips, "This might give you a bit of a sting here, Bruce..."

* AttackBackfire: Talbot fires a GrenadeLauncher only for the round to ricochet off the Hulk and embed itself in the wall behind Talbot, who barely has time for an OhCrap reaction before being blown up.

to:

* AttackBackfire: Talbot [[spoiler:Talbot fires a GrenadeLauncher only for the round to ricochet off the Hulk and embed itself in the wall behind Talbot, who barely has time for an OhCrap reaction before being blown up.]]
* BadVibrations: Reversed from the usual; after HulkingOut, ripples are seen in a pool of water next to an unconscious Talbot as the Hulk leaps away in huge bounds.



* DeathGlare: David Banner when Ross shuts down his experiments. PapaBear Ross to Bruce Banner, much to the latter's confusion as he's never met Betty's father before. Bruce of course does this whenever he's about to start HulkingOut.



* DoomedHometown: Bruce returns to the military base he grew up on, now a desolate ghost town used to camouflage the ElaborateUndergroundBase beneath. What's left gets destroyed by an artillery strike aimed at the Hulk.



* GoForTheEye: Glenn Talbot wants a sample of the Hulk's DNA, but the drills won't penetrate his skin. So Talbot gets his mooks to trap the Hulk in sticky foam and prepares to jab a nasty-looking drill-syringe in the Hulk's eye.
* GreenEyes: Betty, in this case lampshading her role as Banner's LoveInterest. Bruce's eyes turn green when he's about to start HulkingOut.



* KnockoutGas: Averted with a SneezeOfDoom by the Hulk.



* LittleGreenMen (or in this case, Big Green Man). Ross grumbles that Bruce Banner has now become the latest kook craze. [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat Which couldn't mean that he survived, of course…]]



* MercyKill: [[spoiler:After Ross shuts down his attempt to find a cure for his son, David Banner tries to kill Bruce under this trope. Unfortunately his wife gets in the way.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:David Banner after he accidentally kills his wife. He also feels belated guilt over passing on the mutation to his son and tries to find a cure, before Ross shuts him down.]]



* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: Lampshaded at the end. Even though General Ross thinks there's no way Bruce could have survived an atomic explosion, he's GenreSavvy enough to have his daughter under full surveillance in case he's wrong.



* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: David Banner sits too close to Betty on the couch to get hold of her scarf, as a scent tracker for his Hulk Dogs.
* NuclearWeaponsTaboo: Gamma bombs are used as an alternative to nuclear weapons being detonated inside the United States.



* ThisWontHurtABit: As Talbot prepares to shove a nasty-looking drill-syringe in the Hulk's eye, he quips, "This might give you a bit of a sting here, Bruce..."



* TwoKeyedLock: Combined with NoOSHACompliance as the locks are close enough for David Banner to activate the SelfDestructMechanism on the base after stealing both keys.




to:

* YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry: Homaged when Talbot is roughing up Bruce, causing him to growl, "Talbot, you're making me angry!" before HulkingOut. At the end of the movie, the complete line is given as a PreAssKickingOneLiner.

* AxCrazy: David Banner's amorality is pretty apparent throughout the film, what with his willingness to use human test subjects for his experiments (including his own infant son) - but it's not until near the end that the full extent of his megalomania is on display.

* SequelHook: The scene in South America at the end, showing Bruce trying to help others and deal with his condition. Surpisingly, Film/TheIncredibleHulk film picks up on this plot point, and could in fact act as a sequel to the general elements of this film. The subsequent [[Film/TheAvengers Avengers film]] calls back to this by having him in a similar situation, hiding and providing help to the poor in India.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiHero: Surprisingly averted with the Hulk. His seemingly senseless rampages in the labs and military bases throughout the film are all attempts to destroy the gamma research before they fall into the wrong hands. He overpowers soldiers but never attempts to kill them.
