* 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* 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]]''.


Added DiffLines:

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

* CoversAlwaysLie: The young woman featured on the VHS cover looks nothing like (and is dressed differently) than the unfortunate water-skier killed in the movie.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: It is foreshadowed on two seperate occasions how the shark is killed in the end. [[spoiler:The marine biologist investigating the orca carcass caused 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.]]

* TakeThat: A corpse of mauled orca is found on the beach, which is covered in sharkbites. It is a jab at ''Film/OrcaTheKillerWhale'', which was released in the previous year.

* FleetingDemographicRule: In-universe example. Chief Brody is convinced a series of mysterious deaths and disappearances at sea are the work of another shark. Despite the events of four years before, and Brody presenting the selectmen with ''photographic evidence'' of the shark, they and the mayor fire him for his "paranoia" (and for panicking beachgoers by firing his weapon at a school of bluefish). And like true [[DyingLikeAnimals Bats]], they keep the beaches open once again.
