** 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.

* 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.

The 1990 book [[index]] ''Literature/JurassicPark'' [[/index]] was written by Creator/MichaelCrichton, while the 1993 movie [[index]] ''Film/JurassicPark'' [[/index]] was directed by Creator/StevenSpielberg. Both were insanely popular then and are considered modern classics now, and the film spawned two sequels.

** The main reason why the park fails -- they used amphibian DNA, the closest thing possible to insert into the damaged DNA code without causing mutations. Except it did. The type of amphibian used can change sexes in unequal-gender conditions. And using it is kind of stupid when you think about it, given that amphibians and reptiles share different ''classes'', as compared to say chickens and dinosaurs, which start differing at the ''sub-order'' level, ie. about 6 evolutionary steps closer.
** Somewhat Lampshaded in the first book, with Dr. Wu's internal monologue stating that, because 90+% of DNA is the same across all animals on Earth, he could freely mix-and-match whenever he needed to. The species on the island that are breeding are ones that included frog DNA to replace sequence gaps. Since just about everyone involved in the Park at the higher levels is grossly incompetent in some manner, this is just par for the course.
