Added DiffLines:

* DeathByIrony: Donovan tells Indy, before Indy searches for his missing father, not to trust anybody. [[spoiler:Then near the end of the film, when it comes time to choose the Grail, he fails to heed his own advice and relies on Elsa to choose for him, remarking that not being a historian, he has no idea which one to pick. She intentionally hands him one of the false ones, thus sealing his fate with irony.]]

* GenreBlindness: Indy's a lot less GenreSavvy compared to the other films. Henry Sr. [[WhatTheHellHero called him out]] over his idiocy in bringing the Grail diary to the place where he was being held hostage.

** He also misses a huge red flag when Elsa is taken hostage at gunpoint and urges Indy to surrender to her captor. No DamselInDistress that's actually on the hero's side ''ever'' does that, and what's worse, his GenreSavvy dad is right there with him, warning Indy that it's a setup.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Most of the movie was filmed in England and Spain, where precisely none of it takes place. The biggest exception is Venice and even then most of the Venice boat chase was filmed in England. Also, Petra is apparently where the Grail resides.

* AlmostDeadGuy: One of the local fighters opposing the Germans in the canyon is barely alive to utter some last words of warning to Donovan.

* ConvenientEscapeBoat: Subverted and inverted.

to:

* MeaningfulName: Colonel Vogel's name is German for bird. Fittingly, he gets thrown out of a zeppelin by Indy, and later [[DisneyVillainDeath goes off a cliff in his tank]].
* MenAreTheExpendableGender: If you look closely, the "alarm!" lady gets trapped in the burning room along with the male Nazis, making her the only woman to be killed by Indy in all four films (Indy was, of course, not responsible for the deaths of Elsa and [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull Spalko]]). He's certainly killed quite a lot of men though.

** Also Sallah. In ''Raiders'', Sallah was a canny and cunning ally of Indy. He was the one to save Indy's life after subtly noticing that the Nazis had poisoned the dates they were about to eat, aided Indy in excavating the Well of the Souls and was instrumental in smuggling Indy and Marion out of Cairo on Katanga's ship. In this film? He's a bumbling comic relief idiot who's lucky if he can remember to breathe when he walks. Who's saddled with a bunch of camels. [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking And a comedy fez.]]
