* {{Animal Wrongs Group}}s: Pretty much the textbook version of this. While causing harm to the whalers themselves is not a priority, Sea Shepherd does not seem to be particularly concerned about their safety. Even ''other'' environmental rights groups such as Greenpeace want ''nothing'' to do with the [[FunWithAcronyms SSCS]] because their tactics are so controversial.
* LaResistance: The Sea Shepherds.
* PunchClockVillain: The whalers.

* {{Animal Wrongs Group}}s: Pretty much AnimalWrongsGroup: The series focuses on a real-life group, the textbook version of this. While causing harm to the whalers themselves is not a priority, Sea Shepherd does not seem to be particularly concerned about Conservation Society, whose ships forcefully intervene with Japanese & Faroese whaling and bluefin tuna fishing.
* GiantWallOfWateryDoom: One 30 foot rogue wave in particular struck the left side of the ''[[CoolBoat Brigitte Bardot]]'' and nearly snapped the trimaran's port-side pontoon clean off.
* NoseArt: Several ships and watercraft operated by the [[AnimalWrongsGroup Sea Shepherd Conservation Society]] feature this;
their safety. Even ''other'' environmental rights groups such as Greenpeace want ''nothing'' rigid inflatable boats and the ''Bob Barker'' sport shark mouths on the bow, while the ''Gojira'' had a picture of the titular monster before being rechristened the ''Brigitte Bardot''[[note]]Due to do copyright reasons.[[/note]], whereupon the nose art changed to that of a woman bearing a trident and the organization's flag.
* RealSongThemeTune: The series uses The Smashing Pumpkins' "Bullet
with the [[FunWithAcronyms SSCS]] because their tactics are so controversial.
* LaResistance: The Sea Shepherds.
* PunchClockVillain: The whalers.

* EpicFail:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_KnBKriGog Due to badly-timed maneuvering, Sea Shepherd's state-of-the-art trimaran collides a whaling vessel and sinks.]] Cue both sides accusing each other of deliberate ramming and piracy.
** [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-11490958 Crewman admits to being ordered to ram the whaling ship in order to garner sympathy.]]

* MoralMyopia: The Sea Shepherd crews routinely attempt to attack and sink whaling ships, with no regard to the injury this could cause their crews (or loss of life), and brag about the righteousness of it. If the whalers defend themselves, or if the Sea Shepherd crews ''hurt themselves'' in the process, they whine about the evil ol' whalers.

* BlackAndGreyMorality[=/=]GrayAndGrayMorality[=/=]EvilVersusEvil: It's not clear whether we're supposed to root for the [[AnimalWrongsGroup ultraviolent ecopirates]] or the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive unscrupulous Japanese businessmen]]. Which sort of morality this show falls under is really [[YourMileageMayVary a matter of opinion]], but nobody's record is really clean here.

Whether the SCSS's response is DisproportionateRetribution to [[TrueNeutral basically decent]] people doing [[DirtyBusiness an unpleasant job]], a fitting retribution against {{Complete Monster}}s, or somewhere in between, [[YourMileageMayVary is a matter of opinion]].
