* FreudWasRight: As is jokingly (or perhaps not) stated in the director and cast commentary on the DVD, several people have believed that this movie is all about sex, what with the little white men chasing sweaty women down dripping wet tunnels...
** Invoked by Neil Marshall on the DVD "Beneath the Scenes", where multiple jokes are made about how similar a piece of the cave is to a certain part of the female anatomy. To wit - "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar!"

* DyingMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:Sam gets her throat slashed by a Crawler]]. Just before she dies, however, she gets a sudden burst of adrenaline and stabs the Crawler, causing it to plummet into the crevasse below. [[spoiler:As it turns out, there was water below and the Crawler doesn't actually die at that point (Juno finishes the job), but it still counts as a seriously {{Badass}} moment for Sam]].

* {{Badass}}: Almost everyone has their moments, but Juno and [[spoiler:Sarah]] especially apply for this trope.

* TheBechdelTest: With a cast of almost only women, there is almost no mention of men or their love lives except for an offhand reference by Sam of her boyfriend, and [[spoiler: Sarah finding out Juno was having an affair with her late-husband.]]
