* TheLoad: Jordan, although [[AdrenalineMakeover she shows]] ActionGirl [[AdrenalineMakeover potential]] in the last 20 minutes of the film
** She's also pretty GenreSavvy. He tells her to stay back "where it's safe". Her reply, "The safest place on this ship is three feet behind you!"

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Captain Adams to Ryback: "You know, if I had your ribbons, I'd wear 'em to bed." We see at the end that Ryback's broad chest is indeed laden with decorations.

* VillainBall: Prior to the VillainousBreakdown both Strannix and Krill refuse to pick up the ball, with the worst decision being only sending a couple men to the kitchen at the start (which is understandable as they had no idea how dangerous Ryback was). After that, Strannix orders his men into roving patrols, reporting in regularly, not to pursue Ryback into unsecured areas, to immediately call for backup should anything happen, the sub has backup anti-air weapons used to take out the SEAL Team, Krill smartly figures that putting the crew in danger will create a situation where they can take out Ryback, and they notice Ryback trying to sabotage the submarine.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Near the end of the movie, Stranix gets the drop on Ryaback by sneaking up behind him, but doesn't shoot him because...reasons? It's clear the only reason for this is the director wanted a climactic knife fight between the two of them.

* An US Navy Ship hijacking is almost single handedly thwarted by... said ship's [[ChefOfIron cook]]. Well, he used to be a Navy SEAL, but still.
* Midway through the film, Ryback is aided by a small group of sailors who had been assigned to mundane tasks before the takeover (such as running ships laundry service) and had minimal combat training.
