* HazardousWater: Though even slightly above it isn't better, as the piranha can jump a few inches and latch on to anything danging. [[spoiler: Kelly Brook dies this day, as the piranha grab her hair as she rappels over the water and her trying to remove them and keep going just leads to them getting her arms too.]]
*
HeroicSacrifice: See [[YMMV/{{Piranha}} Moment One of Awesome]].the sheriff's deputies grabs an engine and propeller and holds it in the water to chop of swarms of piranha in an effort to allow more people to get to shore. The fish quickly get to his legs since he has to stand in the water to do this, but he keeps going until he's fully devoured.



** At one point in the aftermath, you see two girls on a boat holding each other and sobbing, while one of the boys on the boat passes a water bottle to another boat to help care for survivors. What used to be a bunch of douchebag rebellious teens getting massacred quickly turns into a bunch of terrified and traumatised kids trying to pick up the pieces of their foolishness. It's a very sobering switch.

* TeensAreMonsters: One of the teens grabs a boat just for himself and tries to go for shore, running over several people in the process and killing a few of them.

Karma gets him when the hair one of the girls he kills jams his propeller and slows him down and the desperate people in the water capsize him.

** Very little thought is given to the spring break massacre after the main characters leave the scene to rescue the sheriff's children.

* DiabolusExMachina: Although the ending wasn't really candy and rainbows, it was revealed that [[spoiler: the piranhas throughout the movie were actually babies, and a man-sized adult piranha eats one of the protagonists.]]

* TooDumbToLive: Almost everybody. But especially the spring breakers, who refuse to get out of the water when the cops and the ''sheriff'' herself tells them that it's an emergency. Words like that usually scream shark or alligator/crocodile if you're in or near deep water.

Also filling out the adult cast are Jerry O'Connell (a Girls Gone Wild-esque producer/director), Creator/ChristopherLloyd (a marine biologist), and [[TheCameo Richard Dreyfuss]] ([[DeathByCameo a local fisherman who is the first to get eaten]]). As incredible as it may seem, the film actually got mostly ''positive'' reviews, for being realistically scary, but also knowing when to indulge in it's BMovie roots. Two years later, a sequel was released, ''Film/Piranha3DD''.

* {{Fanservice}}: First half of the film is filled with lots, particularly the underwater nude ballet between Kelly Brooke and Riley Steele.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Mr. Goodman's explanation for how the piranhas could have lived in isolation under the lake for millions of years with no other food: cannibalism.
