* MisplacedRetribution: Due to the rabies screwing up Cujo's rational thinking, he honestly comes to believe that Donna, and later Sheriff Bannerman, are responsible for him being sick, which is what prompts him to attack them.

*** [[spoiler: Not to mention she almost certainly would have been a goner if symptoms appeared (Post-exposure treatment wouldn't have saved her). Also, rabies very rarely manifests as "primal rage" in humans the way it does in animals.]]

* HopeSpot: As the sun comes up on the second day of their "captivity," Donna realizes that she and Tad just have to hold out until the mail carrier comes to the Cambers' and then they'll be okay. While the reader might wonder how the mailman might fare against Cujo, it's a moot point; Camber cancelled his mail delivery since he and Gary were planning to take off for a few days.

* NeverWakeUpASleepwalker: During the first night they spend at her sisters' house, Charity finds her son Brett sleepwalking. Although she has enough common sense to know that all those horror stories about the dangers of waking up a sleepwalker are just myths, she still can't bring herself to wake him up and instead watches him untill he goes back to bed. She also recalls how she took Brett to the doctor when he was six because of his frequent sleepwalking, and the doctor blamed [[CriticalResearchFailure poorly researched movies]] for the wrong ideas people still have about sleepwalking.
