* AlwaysABiggerFish: the team gets surprised by a grizzly bear ([[MisplacedWildlife in Maine]]), who charges through their camp, turns, stands, roars, prepares to attack... [[TheWorfEffect and is promptly grabbed by the crocodile]].
* AssholeVictim: Lake Placid 2 goes out of its way to identify every single victim as a jerk in some way, in some cases literally moments before they die.

* MisplacedWildlife: Discussed; the characters openly debate what the hell a giant saltwater crocodile is doing in a Maine lake. The crocodile expert thinks that, miraculously, it swam two different oceans. Mrs. Bickerman states that it just showed up one day and hasn't left since.

* SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror: It's very tongue-in-cheek for a killer croc film (including such highlights as Betty White cursing at the cops for "mistreating" the crocodile), but not a lot of reviewers seem to have noticed this.
