* {{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.]]

* 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.

** 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.
