* MagnificentBastard: Paul Sarone plays everyone like a fiddle in his quest for the snake. Only the expedition leader momentarily catches on to his play, but is none the wiser as Sarone paralyzes him with a poisonous wasp. He set up the whole thing with Matteo from the start, while keeping the clueless passengers in the dark that they were to be used as bait. He suggests to Owen Wilson's character that [[WeCanRuleTogether he needs a partner and they could split the profits]], them lets the Anaconda eat him as soon as his prize is at stake. He's proven correct pretty much every time the crew decide not to take his advice. He seems to [[FaceDeathWithDignity accept his impending death]] by a vengeful killer, only to swiftly murder her when she hesitates. His manipulation is so effective that he never needs to resort to outright violence until they finally catch on to him.

** ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' had a giant, man-eating snake as an antagonist a whole year before the first movie came out.

* TheUntwist: Paul spends so much time being a creepy perverted South American some expect him to actually be the good guy. Nope, he's a CardCarryingVillain.

* CreepyAwesome: Sarone may in fact be the patron saint of this trope. He even seems to go out of his way to be ''more creepy'' [[ItAmusedMe just to fuck with everybody.]]

** Sarone mentions that he started out studying for the priesthood. Eight years later, Creator/JonVoight would play a ''very'' famous priest indeed...

* CompleteMonster: [[MagnificentBastard Paul Sarone]] is a former priest from Paraguay who decided to become a [[EvilPoacher snake poacher]] in the Amazon, catching them for rich clients. He arranged with his old hunting partner Matteo to lure a documentary film crew to a giant, man-eating Anaconda's home territory to use them as bait for the hunt. He incapacitates the team leader with a poisonous wasp before saving his life to win the crew's trust and offers them a "shortcut" that leads right into the snake's territory. The passengers are picked off one by one by the Anaconda, which crushes its prey in its coils before [[EatenAlive slowly digesting them alive]]. Sarone [[ManipulativeBastard manipulates one of them]] into becoming his "[[WeCanRuleTogether partner]]", but he sacrifices the guy without a second thought when he prevents the others from shooting the snake when it grabs his ally, because he can't make a profit off a dead animal. He strangles a woman to death with his thighs when she's come to get revenge for her dead boyfriend. He is ultimately overthrown but escapes, and captures two of the remaining people inside the Anaconda's feeding grounds. He douses them with monkey blood and tries to feed them to the snake so he can trap it, while mocking their impending deaths.

* {{Sequelitis}}: Not that the first film was a masterpiece of film, but it had a big budget and did well at the box office. By the second movie, the filmmakers were basically just making up shit as they went along, until they reached the MadeForTVMovie of a NighInvulnerable mutant mega-anaconda stage, [[NoBudget made on the budget of a ham sandwich]].
