* CallingTheOldManOut: Indy gives two very hard-hitting examples. First, as he argues with his father about traveling to Berlin to get the Grail diary.

* KickTheDog: The Nazis' attempted bribe to the ruler of Hatay of a large chest of gold and silver objects 'donated' by "some of the most prominent families in Germany". This being the Nazis, it's not hard to guess who they were taken from.

* NotInThisForYourRevolution: Elsa Schneider states explicitly that she does not actually support or care for the Nazis' ideals, but rather only allied with them just to locate the Grail. Walter Donovan is also unconcerned with the Nazi's philosophy. [[spoiler:Although after Donovan dies, his ashes are blown away, explicitly uncovering his swastika badge, suggesting that he did strongly support them.]]

* NotSoDifferent: While never spoken aloud it's definitely in the subtext that Indy may be closer to his father's mindset and personality than he may be willing to admit. The opening flashback shows a very young Indy chasing after the Cross of Coronado, and he would remain obsessed with finding it for years, and when he wasn't chasing after the Cross he was chasing after other important artifacts. Indy's pursuit of the Cross along with his pursuit of similar artifacts clearly mirrors his father's obsession with finding the Holy Grail, the difference being that Indy chased after multiple artifacts during his life while his father's obsession with the Holy Grail was more singular.

* OhCrap: During the tank fight, Indy notices that the tank is about to go over a cliff -- and [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere his hat falls off]] for the first time in the series. After he reaches safety, the hat is deposited next to him by the wind. Indy is also stunned when he finds himself face-to-face with ''Adolf Hitler himself''.

* RefugeInAudacity: How could Indy get away with punching a Nazi officer on a zeppelin and ''tossing him overboard'' in the middle of Germany? "No ticket."

** In the end, [[spoiler:Elsa ignores the knight's warning about taking the Holy Grail beyond the crossed seal, when Indiana's demands her not to move across seal, she doesn't listen and triggers the collapse of the whole temple. Finally, when she is hanging over the fissure created, she tries to grab the grail, ignores Indiana's pleas to give him her other hand and winds up falling to her death for her greed]].

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Donovan appears to be the savviest person in the series, [[spoiler:right up until he trusts a double-agent -- as though he didn't have a small army of people on hand to test it for him]].

As for the movie series, though the original intent was five films, Spielberg and Lucas would decide to just end the series here - feeling it was best to go out on a high note and cap off a trilogy. Obviously, [[TrilogyCreep that didn't take]] and [[SequelGap after a lengthy]] DevelopmentHell, ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' was released nineteen years later.

later, and with a fifth film in the pipeline slated for 2019; it completes the original plans.

** "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.

* 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.
