* GenreSavvy: Even if what he does is basically a throwback to adventure serials, Indy is oftentimes fully aware of what NOT to do in a given situation, unless it just can't be avoided.

The franchise is also fondly remembed for the two LucasArts adventure games it spawned: an adaptation of the third movie, ''Videogame/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'' in 1989, and an original [[AdventureGame cinematic adventure]] story, ''VideoGame/IndianaJonesAndTheFateOfAtlantis'', in 1992. The latter had the FanNickname of ''Indy 4'' for many years, creating speculation that it would be [[WhatCouldHaveBeen made into a film]].

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ey3Ib0Vg2_c There are]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlEs6bxxfuw compilation videos]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbwKN6FafIc on all of the deaths]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U__CfnWe1I4 in the four films]]. Some of them are far from pleasant.
** Well let's just list some of them off, shall we? There's getting torn to shreds by crocodiles, getting dragged into (feet-first) and squashed by a rock-crusher, getting eaten by fist-sized ants, getting your face melted by exposure to holy flames, getting rapidly aged and crumbling into dust... Really, there's something for everyone.

The ''Indiana Jones'' ExpandedUniverse consists of the normally expected items: television series, novels, comic books, {{pinball}} machines, and {{video game}}s, plus the most definitely unusual ride at [[DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]].

Creator/GeorgeLucas prided ''Young Indy'' on managing a {{film}}-level quality production on a television budget, helped by revolutions in digital technology, and he has said that the show was partly a test to see how far he could take the later ''StarWars'' {{prequel}}s. Also like ''StarWars'', the series was subject to subsequent [[ReCut furious re-editing by Lucas]], the new cuts first showing up during re-airings in the late '90s. This re-cut version, which is the only one currently available on DVD, is known as ''The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones''. The ''Adventures'' combines the ''Chronicles'' episodes into two-hour tele-movies, two shows per film (often in a quite different, and much more strictly chronological, order than in the original airings). Notably, none of the Old Indy bookends are featured in the ''Adventures'' (though Harrison Ford's cameo survived the cuts).

* NotSoDifferent: In ''Holy Grail'', Indy says of Henry, Sr., "He ''hates'' rats. He's scared to ''death'' of 'em," in a tone that suggests he thinks this is rather childish and squeamish. Of course, the audience is by then well acquainted with Indy's own fear of snakes.

A series of films (and ExpandedUniverse) produced by famous directors GeorgeLucas and Creator/StevenSpielberg, which were inspired by the 1930s cliffhanger serials, and which [[FountainOfExpies (re)popularized]] the AdventurerArchaeologist. Armed with little more than a bullwhip and attitude ("little more" in this case meaning a [[RevolversAreJustBetter .455 Webley]]), Indiana Jones (Creator/HarrisonFord) discovers long-lost {{MacGuffin}}s, fights ThoseWackyNazis over them and makes love to the GirlOfTheWeek. With the fourth film, produced 20 years later, the {{homage}} shifts to include DirtyCommunists, '50s creatures and sci-fi films.

''The Series/YoungIndianaJones Chronicles'' was a TV series produced by GeorgeLucas in the early 1990s. Initially taking the form of hour-long episodes, the show chronicled the adventures of Indy as a young man, principally at the ages of 10 (as played by Corey Carrier) and 16-up (as played by Sean Patrick Flanery). The Carrier episodes focus on Indy touring the globe alongside his parents as part of a world lecture tour given by his father, while the Flanery episodes primarily deal with Indy's service in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI (in just about every theater!). In each episode, Indy would meet some famous person from the early 20th century, and learn some sort of moral lesson (yes, [[GeorgeLucas Lucas]] very openly intended the series as edutainment). Notably, the show aired in a very AnachronicOrder, with Carrier's and Flanery's episodes often alternating. Each episode was also initially introduced by a 93-year old Indy with an {{eyepatch| of power}}. One episode however, had a bearded Creator/HarrisonFord introduce the adventure.

* TributeToFido: Indiana Jones is named after GeorgeLucas's dog Indiana. There is also an in-universe example that reflects the RealLife situation: in ''Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade'', it is shown that the character chose the nickname "Indiana" after his family's dog.
