* AdaptationDistillation: The British participation in the capture of the titular submarine is almost completely excised, and some parts from the movie aren't in the book, but overall the film maintains the spirit and general plot of the source novel.
* AdaptationalHeroism: The movie implies that the real reason for Ramius defecting was less anger and revenge over his wife's avoidable death and more concern over the fact that the Red October's primary purpose would be to start a nuclear war due to its stealth. In that context, Ryan's comments about Ramius's wife mean that he no longer has any reason to go back home.

* NonActionGuy: Downplayed. Jack Ryan is a CIA Analyst, an office mouse type who hates flying, takes poorly to being shot at, and spends much of the movie out of his depth as he hitches rides on various warships and submarines. As it is eventually revealed, he is also a graduate of the United States Naval Academy and commissioned in the Marine Corps before being '''medically''' discharged due to his injuries in a helicopter crash, as [[MrExposition Fred Thompson's character]] says, "[[IronWoobie He did his fourth year from the hospital.]]"

* 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).
