* ActionGirl: Ellie Sattler in the movie. She is the only member of the cast to survive a physical fight with ''Velociraptors'', being able to hit them with slamming doors, to outrun them, and to kick them in the groin.
** When did she kick a raptor in the groin? Was something missed?

** On the subject of Gennaro, one could argue it was a case of LaserGuidedKarma.

** More downplayed, but the movie's ''Dilophosaurus'' compared to the book's version. While both are vicious predators, in the novel, [[spoiler: Nedry]] is terrified of their calls, and tries to flee before he even sees them. It helps that the novel's ''Dilophosaurus'' are more accurate to the real animal, described as standing ten feet tall and capable of lifting a man with their jaws, while the version in the film is only about dog-sized.

Subverted as it turns out to be a KillerRabbit.

** Gennaro. In the novel, he goes along with Muldoon to catch the ''Tyrannosaurus'', manages to fend off a ''Velociraptor'' attack, intimidates a ship captain with TechnoBabble, and survives to the end. In the film, he becomes a DirtyCoward who dies a particularly embarrassing death.

The film was a massive success becoming one of the all-time highest grossing films. It spawned a major pop culture franchise with three film sequels; ''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark'' (1997), ''Film/JurassicParkIII'' (2001) and ''Film/JurassicWorld'' (2015) and a Ride/UniversalStudios [[Ride/JurassicParkRiverAdventure theme park ride]].

** There's an in-story reason for this, as the genetic scientists had to fill in gaps in the dinosaurs' DNA sequences. None of the creatures are 'real' dinosaurs, but "genetically-engineered theme park monsters". For instance, ''Dilophosaurus'' did not spit venom or have frills and ''Velociraptors'' were approximately 1.5 feet tall and had feathers. The book's ''Velociraptors'' were inspired by the recently discovered ''Deinonychus'', found at the Yale Quarry in Montana where Dr. Grant is introduced. During the adaptation, Spielberg may also have been inspired by ''Achillobator'' when sizing the dinosaurs, but the name ''Velociraptor'' was kept because it sounded cool.

* DeathByIrony: Happens less so than in [[Literature/JurassicPark the book,]] but it does happen:
** Like in the book, Denis Nedry gets eaten by a ''Dilophosaurus'' sometime after he shut down the park's security systems.
** When the ''T.rex'' shows up, Genaro fled the car and left Lex and Tim to their faith while he hid in a bathroom stall so as to not get eaten. After Malcolm gets ''Rexie,'' to chase him, she destroys the bathroom stall, and eats most of Genaro.

** When the ''T. rex'' breaks out of its enclosure, the literary version of Ian Malcolm simply jumped out of the jeep and ran, much like Regis in the novel and Gennaro in the film. Jeff Goldblum suggested that he instead distract the ''T. rex,'' so that Grant can get the kids to safety. That being said, in the novel, the attack went from BadToWorse incredibly quickly and was apparently over before either Alan or Ian could help; Malcolm only gaps it when the rex comes for their car.

** ''Velociraptors'' are treated as such by Grant and Muldoon. They are also presented that way in the opening scene to drive home to the audience that modern predators have absolutely ''nothing'' on ancient predatory dinosaurs.
*** It's even noted that Nedry of all people made sure that the raptor paddock was exempted from his shutdown program.
