* BloodlessCarnage: Hogarth's nosebleed established for the audience that these characters are not MadeOfIron. However, when a deer takes a lethal bullet wound, nary a drop of blood is seen (added in the Signature Edition). Similarly, the government agent's AmusingInjuries are all of a non-bleeding type.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:The town is saved from the bomb. Mansley is arrested for his crimes. Hogarth has more friends. Annie and Dean are a couple. But, the Giant sacrificed himself to ensure the town's safety, but is remembered as a hero. And in the end, the Giant is last seen remodeling himself.]]



* {{Bookends}}: The movie begins and ends with beeps. At the beginning, the beeps are courtesy of Sputnik. They're heard again at the very end. [[spoiler:(This time from the Giant reassembling himself in Iceland.)]]

** In fact, given the time period and location, a steam locomotive is incorrect entirely. Being set in coastal Maine the railroad serving the area would be the Maine Central, whose steam program ended in 1954, three years before the movie takes place.

* OneDimensionalThinking: When Hogarth tries to evade the Giant trampling on him during their first encounter, he doesn'think of stepping aside but keeps running straight forward.
* TheFifties: The setting of the film, with all the trappings of the Cold War included. And all that that implies.

* BluffingTheAuthorities: When paranoiac JerkAss Kent Mansley finally convinces the US Army that the title charqacter is loose in Rockwell, Maine, they arrive at Dean [=McCoppin's=] studio to find a huge robotic figure. Dean explains that it's leftover from a defunct garage, and he's making a modern art sculpture from it. General Rogard glares at Kent and growls, "Mansley, you idiot."
