** Vehicles in general tend to be very flimsy protection in all three movies. If anything, they end up trapping the occupants and leaving them at the mercy of whatever is trying to get at them. Honestly, Tim and Lex got off easy compared to what happened to other characters in this situation (i.e., being sent over a cliff, yanked out and torn in half; sent crashing into a nearby store, dragged out, stomped on, and decapitated; trapped in an animal cage and nearly drowned...with the creature reaching into said cage and trying to pluck you out).

* [[https://youtu.be/cGL9Wr_pUDM?t=10 This intro]] for NES version had low tense music showing logos for the company and the title of the game, then it cuts to the black screen with nothing on it. The eyes of the T-Rex suddenly comes up blinking at the player, then she slowly rises up until her head is fully on-screen; her eyes grow wide and she suddenly roars at the viewer! Probably causing players to jump and run away from the screen after that. Even worse for younger players, showing the menu in her red mouth while saliva drips from her teeth. Thankfully, the cool menu music mitigates things somewhat.

** Oh, and those raptors that can jump out of nowhere? Not only do they respawn, unlike the other dinosaurs, they also have a bad habit of being NotQuiteDead if you don't blow them to Kingdom Come with the rocket launcher or bolas. ''And'' you can run into them in the very first section of the map when you start up the game, unlike most other ''Jurassic Park'' games where they first appear a few levels in.

* The book features a [=PR=] director, Ed Regis, who leaves Lex and Timmy in the car to hide while Grant saves the children from the full grown ''T.Rex.'' Once it goes away, he comes out of hiding, and is surprised by a juvenile ''T.Rex,'' which is less than half the size of the adult. The scene is played rather innocuously, since Regis tries to push it away like he would an overly affectionate dog. Then it bites him. He starts screaming as it starts to eat him, and Grant has to takes the kids to hide in the jungle.

** The description of his decomposing remains after Ellie and Muldoon scared off a pack of ''Compys'' is [[NauseaFuel unnerving in more ways than one.]]



* In the book version of TLW, Dodgson's gang come equipped with a sonar device that holds off big dinosaurs whilst the humans steal eggs. It works perfectly on the herbivores, and then when they go after rex infants it's working equally well on the adults... and then suddenly the sonic weapon's power cuts out. Quoth Malcolm in the film version: 'Mommy's ''very angry.'''

* If you want to visualize how Dodgson dies in ''Literature/TheLostWorld1995'', look at [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHs_KhePqEM this clip]] from ''Film/ABugsLife''. Only instead of Flick and princess Eda, it's Sarah Harding, Dodgson instead of Hopper, and an adult ''T.Rex'' and its young instead of a family of birds.

--> '''Nedry''': You scared me, I thought you were one of your big brothers, [[TemptingFate you're not so bad]].

** It's even worse than that: he just got a ''very'' unexpected phone call from Grant and knows that his grandchildren are there with him, safe, from Grant's own words. [[HopeSpot All is well, they're going to be fine and get out of this alive.]] And then he hears the sound of glass shattering, Sattler yelling a warning, then gunshots, and then ''nothing''. All that relief he'd felt hearing that Tim and Lex were safe was instantly replaced by utter horror. He knew they'd been in danger just because the raptors were still skulking around, but now he knows that one of them is ''right there'', almost in the room with them.


Added DiffLines:

* The scene at the climax when they get to the control room. Sattler immediately runs to Nedry's console to reactivate the park's security systems while Grant waits at the door with the rifle. [[GenreSavvy He sees their primary concern immediately]], with the camera following his gaze, as he says, "The door locks! Ellie, boot up the door locks!" Then he looks back up and the raptor that was following them is ''right there'', where she ''wasn't'' literally seconds ago, looking straight into his eyes. They both look down at the lock, and before Grant can do anything to stop it, the raptor works the handle and manages to throw the door wide open before he gets it closed again. It takes both him ''and'' Sattler to keep the door closed, and they're struggling with all their might the whole time. Let me repeat that: ''one'' raptor is physically stronger than ''two'' grown adults.
