* TheWoobie: On a meta-level, the special effects team who built the animatronic sharks. Just how many times have they heard their creation(s) looked phony and unconvincing?

* SoundtrackDissonance: When the shark's mangled remains sink to the bottom, the soundtrack momentarily turns from triumphant to gentle and somber, almost mournful.

** As the shark drags the fourth victim (the man in the pond) under, its mouth is still wide open.

* RootingForTheEmpire: Given how unsympathetic the main protagonists are and how real-life shark face endangerment from humans, it's not hard to see the Great White as the true hero of the story. Spielberg admitted that when he read the book, he disliked the characters so much [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/3400291.stm he wanted the shark to win]]. It's one of the reasons he applied some AdaptationDistillation for the film adaptation.

* {{Narm}}: Yes, even a timeless classic like ''Jaws'' has a Narm-tastic moment. When Mrs. Kintner confronts Brody and calls him out on allowing people to go to the beach despite knowing of a shark in the water, her tears are ''remarkably'' unconvincing. Her delivery of the line "My boy is dead; I wanted you to know that" has induced chuckles in more than a few moviegoers. Not to mention the black funeral getup (veil and everything) she has on for some reason.
