* LandInTheSaddle: Indy tries this one in the prologue sequence. The [[HorsingAround horse moves]]. The mooks chasing him repeat the process, but with a truck.

** "Archeology is the search for fact, not truth. If it's Truth you're interested in, Dr. Tyree's philosophy class is just down the hall. So forget any ideas you have about lost cities, exotic travel, and digging up the world. We do not follow maps to buried treasure and X never, ever marks the spot. Seventy percent of all archaeology is done in the library. Research and reading. We cannot afford to take mythology at face value." They spend about five minutes in a library and spend the rest of the film doing the opposite of everything Dr. Jones said not to. [[spoiler:Indy's own argument is subverted in a Venetian library when an X, the Roman numeral "10," does indeed mark "the spot." Then marked on Richard's grave. After a while, Indy gives a silent shrug every time an X appears, achieving BrickJoke status.]]
*** Admittedly, the research for the necessary facts had already been done by Henry Jones: forty years of research to prepare for a couple weeks' worth of action.

marking significant spots several times running. (Admittedly, the reading and research for the necessary facts had already been done by Henry Jones: forty years of research to prepare for a couple weeks' worth of action.)

* HindenburgIncendiaryPrinciple: Averted, where Indie and his father escape from it because they were about to caught, but the zeppelin itself is never in danger.

* AllThatGlitters: The Holy Grail that grants its user immortality is kept inside a room with cups of all shapes and sizes. The old Knight Templar who guards it explains that the [[OnlyTheWorthyMayPass final test to prove oneself worthy]] is to pick out the right one. Donovan assumes that the Holy Grail must be a magnificent treasure fit for a king, a Jesus was the Son of God. The gold gem-encrusted cup he chooses to drink from turns out to be the wrong one, and he decays into a pile of ashes within seconds. Indiana then chooses the real one, which turns out to be an ordinary-looking cup that the son of a carpenter would use.
-->'''Templar:''' He chose... poorly.

* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: It rates a 6, due to a few blood squibs, [[spoiler:the Hatay soldiers being decapitated by a giant razor disc (partially offscreen, although the audience does see one of the guys' heads bouncing across the ground) and Walter Donovan (Julian Glover) aging hundreds of years in a matter of seconds, with his skin decaying, his eyes disappearing, etc.]]

[[spoiler:At the end of the film, when she falls to her death because of being unwilling to give up on the Grail and Indy is barely able to resist doing the same, so it seems she wasn't entirely wrong.]]
