** Any caver will tell you that you never use flares inside a cave - since it's a closed environment, the flares fill it up with smoke.
** One diver gives the thumbs up to show he's okay. In diving one shows they're okay by holding the index finger and thumb together in an o shape. Thumbs up means to go to the surface.

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Averted. [[spoiler: The Asian is one of the last characters to die and the black guy survives]].
* BunnyEarsLawyer: The caving team are quite quirky but very good. As Jack puts it when they're trapped, the people best qualified to get them out of the cave-in are all currently down there.

Added DiffLines:

* FiveTokenBand: We have the two white American brothers, the black guy, the female tomboy, the Canadian and the Australian on the diving team. The expedition also includes the east European doctor, the British female scientist and the Asian camera man.


Added DiffLines:

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: The diving team of course. But they've all been together long enough that they're genuinely good at what they do.


Added DiffLines:

* TwoGirlsToATeam: Kathryn and Charlie are the only women on the expedition.
* VasquezAlwaysDies: [[spoiler: Two girls on the team - trained cave diver and climber Charlie and research scientist Kathryn.]] Guess which one lives. Though this is semi-justified as [[spoiler: Charlie gets killed precisely because she's a climber; she scales a rockwall before everyone else and gets attacked by a creature]].

At it's base ''The Cave'' was a very good stand alone movie, and while [[DuelingMovies it was released at the same time as a couple other movies with similarities]] (such as ''Film/TheDescent'' and ''The Cavern''), the movie was able to develop a cult following.
