* {{ChekhovsGun}}: When the ship turns over, a lone little life raft pops to the surface as testiment to the completeness of the disaster. When the survivors make it out of the ship, that lone life raft is there, waiting for them to wait in until help arrives.

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Everyone else gets thoroughly soaked several times before Emmy Rossum's hair ''finally'' stays matted down like it should. After that, everyone's a mess.

** Heck, at least the Titanic had an estimated 700 survivors (out of 2,224 onboard people). Assuming Poseidon has, and is carrying, the near-maximum amount of crew and passengers that its visual basis, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RMS_Queen_Mary_2 the Queen Mary II]], that means the Poseidon is possibly carrying 3800+ people, [[spoiler: with a total survivor count of ''SIX''.]]

Starring Creator/KurtRussell, Josh Lucas and Richard Dreyfuss, the film was nominated for an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward for visual effects (lost to ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest'', though), and was mentioned in the Guiness Book of World Records for having the most detailed CGI model - the ship.

* InfantImmortality: Subverted. Connor survives, of course. But he couldn't possibly have been the only child on the ship.



* ShoutOut: The eerie shot of the ship sinking beneath the waves, disappearing into the gloomy depths of the ocean, is very similar to the final shot of the ''Andrea Gail'' in ''Film/ThePerfectStorm''

* BlatantLies: "Kick him off! He won't die!" (Not that anyone was buying it, most especially the victim, [[spoiler:Valentin]]).
** Possibly averted, if the line was "Kick him off! You'll both die!"; it's pretty hard to make out what they're saying.



* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler: Valentin]]: "I got this, you go."
