* GlassCannon: The Thing is a monster that can kill a single unsuspecting human easily but if its discovered they can be taken down by the base's flamethrowers without much effort. Even a stick of dynamite can take down it's final form.

* BrainFood: Once its face is done melting, the [[spoiler: Palmer]]-Thing's head splits in two to reveal a gaping maw filled with sharp teeth and a long tongue, the latter of which wraps around [[spoiler: Windows']] neck and reels him in before the jaws clamp shut. The Thing manages to hold him in there for a full thirty seconds as [=MacReady=] fiddles with the flamethrower. Eventually [[spoiler: Windows]] is released, but since he got infected and his face was horribly maimed [[spoiler:Mac had no choice but to torch him.]]

** In any case, they would have been unable to warn the other stations via radio as Windows had failed to contact anyone for the past two weeks, and according to him due to the atmospheric conditions it was unlikely that any of the Antarctic stations would be able to contact each other.

* DeathByPragmatism:[[spoiler: Blair is the first character to realize how incredibly dangerous the Thing is, and flips out, destroying the radio, the vehicles, and killing the surviving dogs. Admittedly, destroying everything the team could have used to warn the surrounding station about the Thing isn't a particularly pragmatic solution, but considering [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt what will happen if the Thing escapes the Antarctic,]] it's at least partially justified. This gets him locked in a storage shed, alone, while multiple Things start freely roving the base. [[YouWillBeAssimilated Eventually, the inevitable happens]].]]

* StopHelpingMe (InUniverse): Macready's reaction to Palmer backing up his talk of {{Flying Saucer}}s.
-->'''Childs:''' I just cannot believe any of this voodoo bullshit.\\
'''Palmer:''' Childs, happens all the time, man. They're falling out of the skies like flies. Government knows all about it, right, Mac? Chariots of the Gods, man. They practically own South America. I mean, they taught the Incas everything they know.
