* BondVillainStupidity: Natla defies this trope when her goons corner Lara and recover the stolen MacGuffin; she admires it for a second, then turns to her henchmen and lets out an impatient "Well? [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim KILL HER!]]" Said [[SurroundedByIdiots henchmen]] turn out to be not so GenreSavvy and neglect to shoot at Lara until ''after'' she makes a HighDiveEscape into the canyon below.

** During Lara's battle with the Skateboard Kid, when you start to shoot him he'll say "[[TaxiDriver You firin' at me? You firin' at me? Well, I don't see anyone else here, so you must be firin' at me]]".

* TreacherousQuestGiver: [[spoiler: Both Larson, who is sent as a messenger, and Natla. He's suppose to rob Lara after she collects Qualopec's piece of the Scion, while Natla continously uses Miss Croft to get the whole artifact]].

* UniqueEnemy: Most obviously, [[spoiler: the T-Rex]]. But there are also only 3 bears in the entire game and one of them is fully optional, guarding a secret. Lara also runs into all of two panthers in Egypt.

* MarathonLevel: Almost the entire game is built out of these, creating complex and elaborate labyrinths to traverse. There is nothing wrong in spending a hour per level, all while knowing them by heart. Remake got a ''lot'' of flak for reducing a lot of levels down to their most iconic elements, removing everything else.

* ConvectionSchmuvection: One of the worst offenders in video game history, as it normally plays it totally straight, but at one point, in order to acquire a secret health pack, Lara actually has to crawl over a small lava flow to reach it.

* LivingStatue: In the Tomb of Qualopec. Right as you enter the actual tomb itself, one of the statues springs to life, revealing itself as an Atlantean centar.

* MisplacedWildlife: Greece is simply the worst offender, with gorillas, lions, and crocodiles everywhere. The Coliseum tries to justify it by having the implication that they were brought there. Not to mention a T. Rex in a secluded valley in Peru.

* NoGearLevel: Lara is ambushed as she exits the Egyptian tomb where she found the last piece of the Scion. Although she manages to best her captors, she loses all her weaponry, and thus needs to progress through the first part of ''Natla's Mines'' without her guns. It set a precedent for the rest of the series up until [[TombRaiderUnderworld Underworld]] to have such level OncePerEpisode.
