* {{Foreshadowing}}: In the movie, when Queeg is having his first officer's meeting, he tells the other officers about his exploits on an earlier ship, and cracks that the way things were in the last couple of years, he thought some of the enemy ships had it in for him personally. While he says it as a joke, it's an early indication of Queeg's paranoia.



* NeverMyFault: Queeg doesn't accept responsibilty for any of his mistakes, always blaming the crew instead.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: In the movie, this is what Lt. Greenwald does while cross-examining the psychiatrist, to get him to admit Queeg was paranoid and [[ShellShockedVeteran suffering under the strain of combat]].

* AuthorAvatar: An unusual case, verging on AntiSue. Tom Keefer closely resembles Herman Wouk in many respects - and is also cowardly, conniving, lazy, and disliked by the rest of the crew (except Keith). Greenwald even goes so far as to call him [[spoiler:"the real villain of the ''Caine'' mutiny."]]

* AntiMutinyAntiMutiny: The mutineers justify their actions with the rationale that Queeg's state of mind during the typhoon rendered him unfit to carry out his duties as TheCaptain.

** Keefer, who put the idea of relieving Queeg into Maryk's head, but denied any involvement at the court-martial. Later, when he became the captain of the ''Caine'', he panicked and jumped overboard after the kamikaze attack. He's painfully aware of all this, comparing himself to LordJim.

* BackedByThePentagon: The film got the support of the US Navy, under condition that a disclaimer be put in the opening credits that the story is completely fictional, and there had never actually been a mutiny on a Navy ship.
** It must be noted, however, that three sailors aboard the brig ''USS Somers'' were convicted and executed for conspiracy to mutiny in 1845. The conspirators may have actually made an attempt to carry it out, the Navy's records note that the ''Somers'' suffered some extremely suspicious damage while at sea.
