*DevelopingDoomedCharacters: Any time the movie shifts focus from Chief Brody and Amity's officials to the kids, this kicks in. Interestingly, this film came out four months before trope-codifer [[{{Film/Halloween1978}} Halloween]] (and years before all the [[FollowTheLeader other copycats]]), but has [[UnbuiltTrope a lot of the same components]].

* SoapOperaRapidAgingSyndrome: While most of the younger cast is straight DawsonCasting, Mike Brody heads into this territory as he jumps from being played by an 11-year old in 1975 to an 18-year old in 1978. Sean narrowly averts this, as he is played by an actor only five years older.

* DeletedScene: As with any film, some scenes didn't make the final cut, but two in particular stand out:
** At the city council meeting where they councilors vote on whether to fire Brody, Vaughn is the only one who votes against firing him, showing that, shortsighted as he can be, he still believes Brody is a good chief.
** The ultimate fate of the helicopter pilot, attacked by the shark in his sinking craft.

* Fanservice: 38 minutes through the film, Chief Brody has his entire uniform unbuttoned, showing chest. When he gets back to the house, he only buttoned it up partially, still exposing his chest in a deep V. Makes this even more eye candy since in the original film he typically wore a shirt underneath his uniform but in this sequel, he flies solo, his Chief Badge probably digging into his skin. Yum.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: It is foreshadowed on two separate occasions how the shark is killed in the end. [[spoiler:The marine biologist investigating the orca carcass killed by the shark mentions how sharks are attracted to rhythmic underwater sounds. When Brody's deputy and another assistant are searching for bodies on the sea floor, they find an electrical cable, and quickly drop it back to the bottom. At the end, Brody finds another electrical cable, and attracts the shark by bashing the cable with a bat, causing the sounds. The shark bites the cable, and gets electrocuted.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AngerBornOfWorry: When Michael's friends are trying to tether Sean's capsized boat to theirs, the thing that snaps Sean out of his HeroicBSOD is one of the friends viciously threatening to beat him if he doesn't snap out of it. As soon as Sean is with them, however, said friend immediately starts to comfort him and reassure him they'll be okay, so it seems this trope was in effect.


Added DiffLines:

* HeroicBSOD: Sean enters one after he sees the girl who helped him out of the water get swallowed whole by the shark right in front of him.

* 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.
