* DrowningYourSorrows: Brody's slurred speech, and the pile of beer cans found outside his truck the next morning imply that the night he was fired, he had more than a few to "celebrate" his termination.

** Also, she's tagged right at the start as a clueless city kid visting her cousin on vacation. As such, she originally saw sailing as a bit of fun, she has none of the natural boat skills of the other kids who've spent their lives on island pursuits, no knowledge of how to survive at sea in an emergency and so can hardly be blamed for freaking out just a little more.

** Although to be fair, Brody is really off the rails and the evidence is pretty flimsy. Firing him and keeping the beaches open is not an unreasonable response.

* MonsterIsAMommy: In the novelization (based on an early script), the shark is a female who was impregnated by the shark from the first novel/film which is terrorizing Amity due to her ravenous hunger and later territoriality to protect her almost-to-term young, and during the climax she gives birth to a single baby before she gets electrocuted. The baby later grows up to be the shark from ''[[Film/JawsTheRevenge]]''.

* RecycledScript: The plot is largely a retread of the first film's, with the addition of a group of teenagers.


Added DiffLines:

* TwoFaced: In one sequence, a panicking woman tries to club the shark with a fuel container, only for said container to break open, spilling gas over herself and the boat she's in. She then grabs a flare pistol and fires it, setting herself, the boat and half the shark's face on fire, ultimately causing her own death (when the boat explodes) and leaving the shark badly scarred for the rest of the film.

* IdiotBall: Brody, arguably. There's no need to send Hendricks back to port since Ellen was being sent back, and Hendricks actually knows where he was going, and is more experienced with the police launch.

* {{Callback}}: A subtle one - the barrels that Brody and Hooper swam back into shore on in the first movie? One of them is now a planter outside of the Brody home.

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Martin wonders if this is the case - with the second shark seeking to avenge the first one. This is quickly dismissed, though, and not mentioned afterwards.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Novelization}}: Written by Hank Searls, it's a very unusual book, being based on a much earlier draft of the screenplay. As a result, it reads like a weird alternate universe version of the film's story, and, in many ways, more of a sequel to the [[Literature/{{Jaws}} original novel]].
