* {{Expy}}: Avoided in the films. As one of Indy's characteristics was to be a ChickMagnet and as a result to have a new love interest in each movie, Spielberg and Lucas made their best effort to make any new girl as different as possible from the previous one. Kate Capshaw even had to dye her natural brown hair blonde to play DistressedDamsel Willie Scott in ''Temple of Doom'', as the also brown-haired Karen Allen had played ActionGirl Marion Ravenwood in ''Raiders''.

A series of films (and ExpandedUniverse) produced by famous directors Creator/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.

While Walt Disney World didn't get their own Indiana Jones ride, Hollywood Studios DID get the ''Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!'', a live action stunt show with massive sets that shows their own take on famous scenes from ''Raiders'': the temple adventure from the intro, the Cairo marketplace and kidnapping of Marion (complete with an exploding truck), and the fight scene on, in, and around a Nazi airplane. This show is completely non-canon as it's dressed up as a "film shoot" of ''Raiders'' with the stunt performers claiming to be the actual stunt doubles for the actors. The show includes audience participation (including audience members being taken as "extras" for the Cairo scene), pyrotechnics, various physical stunts, and demonstrations of how different stunts are performed. Along with the show, ''Ride/TheGreatMovieRide'', the park's centerpiece attraction, features a sequence for ''Raiders of the Lost Ark''.

* BowtiesAreCool: If you're going to teach at Princeton, you'd better look the part. Henry Jones and Marcus Brody are also fond of wearing these.
