* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Although the Klingons are shown speaking their own language at first, [[TranslationConvention for simplicity's sake they speak English to each other]] for the majority of the film. Only [[BigBad Kruge]] and [[MauveShirt Maltz]] are shown to actually be able to speak English though. [[spoiler: This becomes a brief plot point when the Klingon troopers board the Enterprise and don't recognise the computer counting down from 9...8...7...6...5...4...3...2...1...]]

* PapaWolf: [[spoiler: Forget the "wrath of Khan", Kirk's fury over David's murder is such that he's willing to destroy the Enterprise to gain revenge against Kruge.]]

* BrandishmentBluff: After the weapons fire exchange between ''Enterprise'' and the Bird of Prey, Kruge is surprised that his ship hasn't been put away, knowing he'd be heavily out-gunned. Of course, ''Enterprise'' had been hobbled since the Bird of Prey's one disruptor shot took out the automation center keeping it running with its skeleton crew. When Kirk comes on and demands a surrender, Kruge determines it is a bluff, and calls it, and counters with the surviving ''Grissom'' crew as hostages.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Kruge is brutal and cold-blooded, but prefers taking prisoners instead of destroying ships (though probably just so he can get information).

** ''[[http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Mr._Scott%27s_Guide_to_the_Enterprise Mr. Scott's Guide to the Enterprise'']] states that there are two methods of self-destruct: explosive charges throughout the ship or warp core overload resulting in a matter-antimatter explosion. The last digit of the self destruct code determines which method (zero for the charges, one for the warp core). This helps explain Kirk's pause before saying the last "zero": he's deciding which way to go.
