* ThrowAwayCountry: All of Europe freezes over except Spain and Portugal. Maybe the old European saying "Africa starts at the Pyrenees" was right after all.

** So many people in Los Angeles stand around gawking at tornadoes in their city as opposed to running for cover or driving away from them as fast as possible.

** A guy in Tokyo attempts to take cover of the massive hail falling down on the city only to get hit by a pellet of hail.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: Believe it or not, but in 1912, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Far_Eastern_Party an Australian adventurer and two of his colleagues travelled to the North Pole as a part of the Australasian Expedition]]. One fell down a crevasse with half of their supplies, and the other one fell ill and died after Mawson personally pulled him along. Mawson was the only one to survive. In the movie, [[spoiler:the protagonist and his two friends experience a nearly identical fate when they travel to New York]] ([[spoiler:one breaks through the glass roof of a mall and falls to his death and the other one falls ill for the protagonist to carry him around]]). [[spoiler:In the movie, however, casualty two actually recovers]].

* CutTheSafetyRope: One of Jack's companions falls through the snow-covered Galleria's skylight and, knowing his friends will fall as well if he doesn't relieve the burden on the rope that links them, cuts it himself and drops to save the others.

* SuperPersistentPredator: The kids might wonder if the New Yorker among them used to throw rocks at these wolves' mother.


Added DiffLines:

* WorstAid: Notable for depicting things that are tilted just enough to be dangerous:
** The IntimateHealing scene could be quite a bit more intimate/awkward. Sam should lose ''all'' of his clothes (keeping wet underwear on is a poor idea) and Laura, whose clothes are also soaked from the rainstorm and splashing around, should be mostly skin-to-skin. As depicted this wastes a lot of body heat.
** Laura not checking her cut after having been jabbed in filthy storm surge water, then the others later pursuing what antibiotics might be available on the ship once it has developed a serious infection. "Lucky" doesn't begin to describe the antibiotic both working and Laura surviving with no ill effects. It did however almost get three other people killed.
** The NYPD officer leading a large number of civilians - including sick, injured and presumably children - off into frigid conditions with no real preparations or supplies. This would have ended poorly even without the Super Freeze of Doom. What happens when that inevitable first person cannot keep up with the move?
