* WhatMeasureIsANonCute: Indie and the others are outnumbered enough to hold from stopping the torturous sacrifice of an adult. Whipping a little kid with the same numbers however, ''that's'' going too far.

** The opening "Anything Goes" number. So far as anyone can tell, they did have a Mandarian translation of the Cole Porter song, but Kate Capshaw butchered the pronunciation. What with Mandarian being a tonal language, this effectively turned the lyrics into gibberish. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJxsC6I3mrk Here's a Chinese speaker's best guess at a translation.]]

* BaitAndSwitch: The opening has a GiantMook ceremoniously banging a gong with his mallet in a ritual manner, pan to a flaming dragon... and out comes out a LadyInRed sparkling sequined dress, launching into a Mandarian "Anything Goes".

** The Thuggee Cult died out in the 1850s, yet this film takes place in the 1930s and presents the arrival of the British Regiment arriving at the end as TheCavalry. Small wonder it was banned in India. The film is inspired by ''Film/GungaDin'' which likewise took place in an earlier period.

(The movie ''does'' refer to the Thuggees as having been originally wiped out "a hundred years ago", implying that the movie's Thuggees are meant to be interpreted as a fictional resurgence.)

* MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness: It rates an 8 (yes a PG-rated film gets an 8 on a scale of violence level), primarily due to [[spoiler:Mola Ram (Amrish Puri) ripping out a dude's (Nizwar Karanj) heart out with his bare hand (shown in close-up) and the fact that the Temple of Doom's upper air shafts (or whatever they are) are decorated with flayed human skin. That's not even including the dozens of children being abused and held in slavery and Hellish working conditions]].

** The novelization makes it more explicit that the infamous dinner scene was intended to highlight that something wasn't right with Pankot, as well as try and getting Indy and Co. and the British army to leave. The intention is in the film, but not conveyed in a way that really makes it clear.

* TheLavaCavesOfNewYork: The underground cavern of the palace just happens to have a direct line to the Earth's crust and hot magma flowing out. The only areas of Volcanic activity in India, and dormant activity at that, is in the Andaman Islands, and nowhere on the mainland of the Indian subcontinent.
