Added DiffLines:

* MonstrousCannibalism: By the fourth film, it's confirmed that the biggest crocs are eating the smaller ones. Which RealLife crocs do anyway, but in this case it's cited as proof they've run out of other wild prey.

** Third one has one too in the form of Reba, but she's a more complex character and [[{{Badass}} can actually back up her ego.]]

* 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.

* MisplacedWildlife: MaleGaze: Hank and Jack shamelessly ogle a hot local as she walks off after asking about the first attack, earning a indignant "please" from Kelly.

* 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.
