* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: The Political Officer. "The man was a ''pig''," quoth Victor Slavin, who has no objections to his murder.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: The movie raises the possibility that Ramius has gone mad and is intending to start WWIII, e.g. when he confiscates both keys [[TwoKeyedLock needed to launch the missiles]] (this is rejected early in the novel, as five officers are needed to launch the missiles, and their range is such they could have done so the moment Red October left harbour). The Soviets later claim this in order to get the Americans to sink Red October, so dramatic tension is then created by Ryan trying to convince Mancuso that Ramias is genuine.

* SuperPrototype: ''Red October'' is a significantly modified variant of the very real ''Typhoon/Акула'' class of ballistic missile submarine. Longer and wider than the standard type, ''Red October'' carries six additional ballistic missiles and, most significantly, the "caterpillar drive", which is a revolutionary silent propulsion system (magneto-hydrodynamic in the movie, ducted pump-jet in the novel).

* RuleOfThree: Ryan and smoking. He is offered a cigarette by Painter on the ''Enterprise'' when as he is briefed and declines it. He then is offered one by the Chief of the Boat aboard the ''Dallas'', he declines that one as well, insisting he doesn't smoke. After boarding the ''Red October'' he ''asks'' Melekhin for one, then obviously has trouble with it.
--->'''Melekhin''': [in Russian] "He's turning green..."

-->When he reached the New World, Cortez burned his ships. As a result, his men were well-motivated.
** CinemaSins review of the movie points out that Cortez ''did not'' burn his ships, he sank them, and a man of such culture and education as Ramius would know this.
