** Her reactions and actions within the film could also indicate that Willie was just a normal woman who was caught in a situation that is completely out of her element.

* AwesomeMusic: The very catchy "Slave Children's Crusade" or the majestic "Short Round's Theme"

** On a related note, some Indian viewers and a few others listened to Mola Ram's big speech about using the Sankara Stones power to get rid of the English and think that it's a solid plan they can get behind. Since the actor Amrish Puri is popular in Indian cinema as a really cool villain actor, they root for him by default.

* AccidentalAesop: Remember everyone, [[DrugsAreBad say no to drugs]]; they'll make you start worshiping Indian death gods (or goddesses, in this case)[[note]]Possibly even compelling you to start killing people, or worse...[[/note]].

* CompleteMonster: In a series full of villains that include Nazis, the evil Thuggee high priest [[BigBad Mola Ram]] stands out. [[BaldOfEvil Head]] of the {{cult}} of [[ReligionOfEvil Kali Ma]], Ram intends to find the Sankara Stones to bring forth the reign of Kali. To find the stones, he has [[WouldHurtAChild children abducted from their villages and enslaved]]. Ram has a habit of ritualistic killings by [[BeatStillMyHeart ripping the hearts out from his victims]] and dipping them in lava. Mola also uses the "Blood of Kali" to brainwash local politicians and royalty to become devout servants of Kahli, does the same to Jones, and nearly has him sacrifice his ally Willie. Mola Ram, who also [[BadBoss would kill his own men to stop Jones]], is possibly the [[KnightOfCerebus most evil character]] in the whole ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' franchise.

* {{Narm}}: The maharajah's condemning of Thugee during the dinner scene sounds extremely stilted and unrealistic, though considering [[spoiler:he's working for them at the time (though unwillingly)]] that was probably the intention. Kind of gives the "Did I get it right?" look he gives Chattar Lal a new spin, doesn't it?

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Indy panicking over crashing a plane briefly stopped being amusing when Creator/HarrisonFord got injured in a plane crash in 2015. Although, as [[GallowsHumor a darkly comical moment]], when Ford recalled the crash to Creator/JimmyFallon on ''Series/TheLateShow'', he said "I didn't crash, the [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] plane crashed!", echoing Indy's line "We weren't brought here, our plane... crashed."

* UnfortunateImplications/ValuesDissonance: A common criticism of the film by critics and fans nowadays is how it features a cringeworthy portrayal of Indian people and uses the much discredited MightyWhitey moreso than other entries. While many fans were fine with Nazi villains in ''Raiders'' and ''Last Crusade'', given how everyone hates that [[AcceptableTargets Nazis]], they felt that the stereotypical Indian villains went too far and were too denigrating towards non-white cultures.
