* AluminumChristmasTrees: Indy mentions that Short Round's parents were killed in the Japanese bombing of Shanghai. Many assumed this meant the bombing in 1937 at the start of the Second Sino-Japanese War; there was, in fact, a bombing in 1932.

** Mola Ram claims that once he has all of the Shakra stones, the influence of Kali will be such that the Muslims will be overrun, the Hebrew God will fall, and the Christian God will be "cast down and forgotten". Muslims, Hebrews and Christians all worship the same God; indeed, FromACertainPointOfView, so do Hindus (depending on whether or not the "ultimate reality" Brahman is considered to be His equivalent; many Hindus and non-Hindus do, and are open to Abrahamic doctrine to a point- Hinduism being Syncretic-, and it's more or less a matter of individual interpretation).

* BilingualBonus: The maharajah of the temple is called 'Zalim' which means [[spoiler:evil]] in Hindi. Fitting, as he [[spoiler:is a bad guy. But only because his second-in-command was feeding him [[BrainwashedAndCrazy mind-control juice]].]]

** The nightclub where the movie begins is named "Club [[StarWars Obi-Wan"]]. In that scene the origins of Indiana as a derivative Film/JamesBond are very explicit and homaged.

* BondVillainStupidity: The two thugs that work for Lao Che. Instead of simply shooting Indy while he was sleeping on the plane, they instead plot a collision course into a mountain and then parachute from the plane. This is even more stupid when you realise that they're just parachuted into the middle of the Himalayas! Where the hell were they planning on going after landing halfway up a mountain?! [[note]] According to the shooting script, the two thugs saw that Indy had quick reflexes and weren't sure whether he was asleep or half-asleep so they got cold feet and decided to jump out of the plane rather than go after him with a knife [[/note]]

* IdiotBall: ** When Indiana discovers the mine and throws a rock against a guard, revealing his presence and alerting the Thuggees, but it turns out he was surrounded already, other mooks were sneaking from behind. ** The two thugs that work for Lao Che.

* KarmaHoudini: Lao Che cheats and tries to murder Indiana, but gets away scot free. And Indiana has no idea about it. There was a plan to have him return in sequel but it never came to fruition. He is probably the ONLY named Indiana Jones villain who is still alive at the end of the movie.
