** Also earlier in the film, the staff has succeeded in capturing the baby shark, intending to put on display as the world's first great white shark in captivity once it's nursed back to health and ready, guaranteeing a boatload (pun intended) of money and good publicity for Sea World. However, Calvin gets impatient of waiting for the shark to recover, and orders him to be moved to an exhibit right away without talking to Katherine. The shark almost immediately dies, either because he wasn't ready for display yet or because the exhibit he was put in was incapable of supporting great whites, resulting in the park losing its new multimillion dollar attraction.

* OhCrap: Mike, Kate, and Calvin all have this expression when they see that the shark is swimming right towards the control room about to smash through the glass and flood the place.

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent:
** The first and only of the films to not be set on Amity Island (even the fourth film starts out there before moving to the Bahamas)
** The first to feature a female shark.

* CaptainErsatz: The park, [=SeaWorld=], obviously based on the [[Ride/SeaWorld real thing]], but with some notable differences, such as being linked to the open ocean.

* {{Expy}}: [=FitzRoyce=] is basically a British counterpart of Quint from the first film, as both are expert shark hunters who end up killed by the main villainous sharks in their jaws at the films' climaxes, however, both characters after death provide a ChekhovsGun [[spoiler:which helps blowing up the sharks to kingdom come]].

*** The baby shark is also much, ''much'' too large to have been born recently inside the park. A real newborn great white isn't much bigger than a Chinook salmon.

* [[EvilDetectingDog Evil Detecting Dolphin]]: The dolphins act skittish and edgy as soon as the shark shows up, to the point where they seem to be explicitly warning Mike and Kay away from exploring a shipwreck, knowing that the shark is lurking nearby.
* {{Heroic Dolphin}}s: Cindy and Sandy rescue Kay and Mike from a shark after attempting to keep them out of the Galleon. Later, one of them gets in front of the shark, again allowing Mike and Kay time to escape. It initially appears to be a HeroicSacrifice on the dolphin's part, before InfantImmortality kicks in.
* HotScientist: Kay, the park's marine biologist.
* IdiotBall: Calvin Bouchard. He obviously has little to no working knowledge of marine life or structural engineering, yet constantly overrides his expert staff. First, he ignores Kay's orders as chief marine biologist to keep the captured great white in the tank until she says its ready to move again (killing the only great white in captivity shortly after doing so), then during the tunnel rescue operation he orders the pumps of the straining filtration pipes (where the shark is being contained)shut down because he's worried about the cost of replacing it.
** And look at the tank in which the shark is put on display. Baby or not, this is a 10 foot long great white, yet the tank is only about waist deep (endangering him) and there's absolutely no barrier between it and the spectators (endangering ''them''. Anyone could have foolishly jumped in or reached in, or the shark could have jumped up and grabbed somebody).
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Fitzroyce is pompous and arrogant, but clearly very knowledgeable about sharks, saves Kay's life when the baby shark attacks her, and jumps right in to help when things go to hell.
** Bouchard also. Granted, everything that goes wrong is his fault, but he's genuinely concerned about the welfare of the park's guests and about Kay and Mike when the shark gets loose, and he doesn't hesitate to save the female technician during the climax.
