* HarsherInHindsight: In 2006 a Chinese diesel sub went undetected by the USS ''Kitty Hawk'' battlegroup until it surfaced within torpedo range, taking advantage of their near total silence while running on batteries. Diesel-electric subs have a long history of doing performing similar stunts. In 1999, during a naval exercise, a Dutch diesel-electric sub managed to sink 9 US Navy vessels including a nuclear aircraft carrier and the exercise command ship without ever being detected.

* EsotericHappyEnding: Congratulations, Commander Dodge. You just proved it would be possible for a rogue state to launch a nuclear sneak attack on an American naval base using a diesel sub.

not a YMMV trope, moved to main
* ObligatoryWarCrimeScene: The hilarious WalkThePlank sequence? That's a mock execution. That's an all-out war crime. It's PlayedForLaughs, but in reality that'd be at least 15 years in the stockade for Dodge and probably some of his crew as well.

Pascal isn't a strawman of anyone, just a stock antagonist character
* StrawmanHasAPoint: While Lt Pascal may be a loud ControlFreak, his complaints about how [[LethalChef Buckman]] runs the galley are entirely justified.

* HeyItsThatGuy: ** A young PattonOswalt is the radio operator (when it's not Nitro) and is about the only crazy misfit on the boat to not get the chance to demonstrate his crazy misfittingness. ** Yet another CoolOldGuy role by HarryDeanStanton. ** Spots(Johnathan Penner) would later go on to appear in several seasons of {{Series/Survivor}}.
