* StrappedToAnOperatingTable: The Yimr gets tied down to a large operating table in order to pump it's body with enough electicity to keep it sedated. It doesn't last very long...
* WhatTheHellHero: First little Pepe (the boy who found the Ymir's capsule) steals government property to sell to Doctor Leonardo. Then Doctor Lenoardo and his granddaughter seem to go out of there way to show the newborn creature as ''little'' compassion and human decency as possible. Then Col. Calder decides that the best way to capture the creature "safely" is to poke it with a prod several times. Though the award for biggest ''idiot'' goes to the zoologists who kept pumping electricity into the poor Ymir to keep it restrained.
