* InstantWinCondition: Part of the suspense during the final duel between the shark and [[spoiler:Brody]] is that it's an automatic win for the shark as soon as [[spoiler:the ''Orca'' completely sinks; Brody nails the shot on the scuba tank just in time]].

->''"There is a creature alive today that has survived millions of years of evolution, without change, without passion, and without logic. It lives to kill; a mindless, eating machine. It will attack and devour anything. It is as if God created the devil and gave himů [[TitleDrop Jaws]]."''

* AdaptationNameChance: Michael Brody is named Martin Brody Jr. in the book. Possibly his name was changed for the purposes of the OneSteveLimit.

* KickTheDog: It is strongly implied that Pippet the dog has become the shark's victim -- his sudden and ominous disappearance during the beach scene (where he had once been running into the waves to fetch a stick his owner had tossed to him, now we only see the stick floating on the water while his owner frantically calls for him) occurs just before the attack on Alex Kitner (which is itself a KickTheDog moment), and is the first hint of the shark's presence.

* ScienceMarchesOn: At the time the general conception really was that great white sharks are "mindless eating machines". It has since been proven that great whites have a complex social hierarchy, distinctive personalities, and definitely a capacity for learning and rudimentary reasoning.

Released in June 1975, '''''Jaws''''' was the [[TropeMaker first]] SummerBlockbuster, soon to be [[TropeCodifier codified]] by ''[[Film/ANewHope Star Wars]]''. Along with ''Film/{{Gojira}}'' and ''Film/KingKong1933'', it was also the inspiration for Giant Animal rampage {{movies}}, and it served as a launchpad for its director, Creator/StevenSpielberg.

** Quint makes an even more obvious one earlier, when seeing Brody (who is wearing a poncho and goulashes at the time) before they launch hug his wife says to him "I see you got your rubbers with you" and then cackles to himself.
*** I think you mean galoshes (a waterproof overshoe, typically made of rubber). Goulash is a Hungarian meat stew.
