* ChekhovsGun: ChekhovsSkill: Johnny's archery skills.


Added DiffLines:

* ImprobableAimingSkills: Johnny Longbow; heck, his name comes from the fact he's an excellent archer. Becomes ChekhovsSkill at the climax.

%% * MagicalNativeAmerican: Johnny Longbow.

to:

%% * MagicalNativeAmerican: Johnny Longbow.Longbow is an aversion. He stays strictly on the scientific explanation of Paul's transformation, and notes that old Native American legends are probably based on a similar occurance of a meteor fragment in the past.

* DownerEnding: The movie is essentially Paul deteriorating before being DrivenToSuicide and doesn't even get to [[DyingAsYourself die as himself]].

* OffscreenTeleportation: Upset at the idea of Paul no longer being human, Kathy drives off to find him, leaving Johnny Longbow and the police behind with their cruiser as they watch. In the next scene, Kathy drives off of the road, parks the car, and finds Paul standing in front of her- and Johnny is ''immediately'' there to fire his meteorite-tipped arrow at him. The police he was with drive up to the scene a moment later. Maybe Johnny is [[MagicalNativeAmerican more than he appears]]....

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: It's claimed that the closest living relative of the ''TyrannosaurusRex'' is the Komodo dragon. It's not. In fact, literally the only thing linking them together is the fact that both are reptiles--beyond that, they couldn't be any more different. The Tyrannosaur is, no joke, closer to a ''chicken'' than to a Komodo dragon.

Added DiffLines:

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Credit where it's due- even if he is a [[JerkAss condescending jerk]], when confronted with a murder involving clues he doesn't understand, the police captain immediately goes to a trusted authority for assistance, and is willing to listen to theories involving Native American legends that even Johnny Longbow admits are pretty fantastic.

* RecklessGunUsage: At the climax, when Cathy starts screaming, the police just fire into the darkness in random directions.[[note]'''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 Mike]]:''' Ah, what the heck. I could use some administrative leave.[[/note]]
