Added DiffLines:

* GratuitousLaboratoryFlasks: In the SNES game, there's one room in the visitor's center that has shelves and shelves of flasks and test tubes. Neither they nor the room they're in serve any purpose to the story or the gameplay. You can't do anything in the room except look at the pretty bubbling chemicals.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Islas Sorna and Nublar are in Costa Rica, but the movies were shot in Hawaii.



* CharacterExaggeration: In the film ''Film/JurassicPark'', Ian Malcolm was a comical DeadpanSnarker. In [[Literature/JurassicPark the original novel]], he was a much more serious character, although he did have some humorous moments -- such as dismissing the argument comparing reviving dinosaurs to using cloning to save the California Condor by pointing out the obvious fact that condors don't eat people. Although, perhaps as a nod to this change, while delirious from drugs and severe injury in the sequel novel, ''Literature/{{The Lost World|1995}}'', he temporarily takes on a talkative, wisecracking persona similar to his movie one, although much more over-the-top.

** The ''[[BigBad Indominus rex]]'' from the fourth film averts this entirely, being a straight up malicious killer that attacks everything it sees just for fun and not food. Being a genetically engineered hybrid of multiple species of dinosaur and other animals specifically intended to be a new, scarier dinosaur, it's no surprise they created an actually villainous dinosaur.

[[spoiler:Except it turns out the Indominus isn't just extra-aggressive, it's also part raptor. And was raised unsocialized, recreating the same problem seen in the original raptors.]]

* TooDumbToLive: Anyone who would (a) follow a ''Velociraptor'' into dense forest, regardless of how well-armed they might be; (b) run headlong into a field of tall grass in which God knows what might be lurking -- after having been briefed that this was near a raptor nesting site; (c) knowingly steal raptor eggs for profit before even knowing if they'll make it off the island alive; or (d) thinks that they can automatically give commands to a raptor that it has taken someone else ''years'' of imprinting, bonding, and establishing himself as "alpha" to said raptor (who, by the way, has been dropping hints that she wants to ''kill'' this particular TDTL person), probably has a subconscious death wish.

* EatenAlive: Too many times to count.

to:

* EatenAlive: Too many times to count.count, with [[spoiler: Zara's]] demise possibly being the most memorable instance.



*** Ditto for [[spoiler: Zara]] being presumably crushed to death or swallowed alive by the Mosasaur, while we see the Pteranodon holding onto her being chomped on...all without any blood.



* StockDinosaurs: ''TyrannosaurusRex'', ''Triceratops'', ''Brachiosaurus'', and ''Parasaurolophus'' all make appearances in the first film, and ''Velociraptor'' itself became a stock dinosaur because of the movie, along with ''Dilophosaurus''. In the novels, they are specifically chosen to appeal to people. The sequels add ''Apatosaurus'', ''Stegosaurus'', ''Ankylosaurus'', ''Pachycephalosaurus'', and ''Pteranodon'', and brought ''Spinosaurus'', ''Compsognathus'', and ''Mosasaurus'' to prominence.

* [[NeverFoundTheBody Never Saw the Body]]: [[spoiler: Ian Malcolm.]] It is heavily implied in the first book that he's dead, but no one ever actually said so, and we never saw the body.
** The epilogue does have a line on how the Costa Rican Government did not permit the burial of [[spoiler: Hammond]] or [[spoiler: Malcolm]] while they were investigating the incident.
*** Though if you think about it, it still works. The Costa Rican Government would certainly have had a problem with people trying to bury [[spoiler: Malcolm]] if he was still alive.
