* PoorlyTimedConfession: In the climax where Patricia "confesses" to Joe that she loves him... right before he is supposed to face his titular opponent.
--> '''Patricia''': I love you.\\
'''Joe''': I love you, too! I've never been in love with anybody before, either! It's great! I'm glad! ...But the timing stinks. I gotta go.

-->'''Patricia:''' Iíve always kept clear of my fatherís stuff ever since I got out on my own. And now heís pulling me back in. He knew I wanted this boat and he used it and he got me working for him, which I swore I would never do. I feel ashamed because I had a price. He named it and now I know that about myself. And I could treat you like I did back out on the dock, but that would be me kicking myself for selling out, which isnít fair to you.

[[EveryManHasHisPrice Every Woman Has Her Price]]: Patricia is snarky and nasty to Joe at first, but she explains that her father bribed her with the ''Tweedle Dee'' to help him with his plan. She's angry that she discovered she did have a price and what the price was (the boat.)

* {{Unobtainium}}: Boobaroo, the rare mineral that is a tremendous superconductor.

* {{Unobtainium}}: Boobaroo, the rare mineral that is a tremendous superconductor. Though since the properties of the material are never relevant to the movie's plot, it's more of a {{Macguffin}} - it could have been a normal precious metal, gems, anything like that.

* AppeaseTheVolcanoGod: [[spoiler: The volcano god rejects Joe and Patricia and sinks the island]].
* [[{{Motif}} Arc Motif]]: The mysterious giant zig-zag symbol. It pops up throughout the film.
** For instance, on the giant logo of the SteamAndFlameFactory, on the sidewalk outside, on the trail up the side of the volcano, on the lightning that destroys the boat... Is it a volcano or a lightning bolt?
*** It's quite explicit in the film. It's the "crooked road" that Joe's been walking all his life.
