* ParanoiaFuel: You better believe it. Beach attendance noticeably dropped in 1975 because of this movie. And ever since then, promotional materials have billed it as "The film that made you afraid of the water."

to:

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The protagonists are so unlikable, selfish, and hypocritical that they make the shark look decent by comparison.

* RomanticPlotTumor: The illicit love affair, lasting one afternoon, between Matt Hooper and Ellen Brody.
* TrappedByMountainLions: The adultery and organized crime subplots, neither which have much bearing on the hunt after the shark.

** When the shark jumps out of the water and on to the boat in the beginning of the scene where [[spoiler:Quint gets devoured]], you can clearly see the wire attached to the shark's fin.

to:

* {{Woolseyism}}: In the Mexican Spanish dub of the first film, and also overlapping with {{Bowdlerise}}, the ''Smile, you son of a bitch'' was changed with the simplier, but still effective line of ''¡Escualo miserable!'' (Literally "You miserable shark!" but it also means, context-wise, as "You goddamned shark!"), the fact the voice actor says that line with a really enraged tone helps a lot. On the other hand, during the flashback scene of the fourth film, it was translated as simply ''¡Sonrie, maldito!'' (Smile, you bastard!, translated context-wise)
