** The [[http://jurassicpark.wikia.com/wiki/Tylosaurus#Trivia wiki]] suggests that, at some point, a Mosasaur may have swam into fresh water (much like a bull shark) and found itself in a swamp; this would have given mosquitoes the opportunity to feed off of it. Of course, this would have been a very rare occurrence and the odds of that DNA being preserved are even worse, but [=InGen=] ''does'' only need one sample...

* HilariousInHindsight: [[spoiler: Dr. Sorkin's death by being Mosasaur chow]] was a death that actually showed up in [[spoiler: Film/JurassicWorld where Zara was eaten by a Mosasaur. Coincidentally, Zara was the first female to die in a movie while Laura was the first female to die in the whole franchise.]]

* OneSceneWonder: David Banks in episode one makes a few comments while Sorkin is hacking the system, but remains out of sight and is never seen again after that. The exact details of his offscreen death are never disclosed.

* TheScrappy: Dr. Sorkin once we've met her in person. She loses her helpful traits and instead puts everyone in danger by [[spoiler: not mentioning the Troodon sooner, releasing the Mosasaur, and using the others as hostages.]]

** [[spoiler: Nima, if you send her after the can instead of Jess.]] She stands there smiling for a few seconds, then suddenly forgets not to move when the T-rex starts to turn around. What makes it all the more ridiculous is that she actually stops moving for a few seconds after noticing the T-rex, making it look like she was going to use the tactic that had worked not two minutes ago.

Despite rather clearly getting that it's what bit Nima, she later claims she had no idea that [[spoiler: the Troodon]] were really escaping quarantine and had only guessed at the possibility that it had happened. It's pretty easy to agree with Yoder that she's endangered them all by not admitting to it sooner. [[spoiler: The Reveal at she likely cares more for the dinos than the humans only slightly mitigates it.]]

** In episode four, [[spoiler:Yoder]] runs for the can while mere feet away from the ''Tyrannosaurus''. This is a desperate move, yes, but then why -- instead of diving into the water or making a run for it -- does he stand there like a goof admiring his prize once he grabbed it? Did he happen to forget the multi-ton monstrosity standing next to him?

* AwesomeMusic: Much of the film's original score is reprised in some way. ** "Don't Remember You", which plays during Oscar's scuffle with the Velociraptor, in a StylisticSuck sort of way.

This isn't YMMV. Moving.
* DanBrowned: Zigzagged. While the dev team do include a few signs that they did their homework, at other times they simply made stuff up or went for RuleOfCool. Case in point is the mystery theropod; the real ones were nocturnal and had large eyes that may have been reflective like a wolf's, but there's no evidence they had poisonous bites or bred in such a bizarre manner.

* CompleteMonster: [[spoiler: Yoder]] becomes this late in the game. Sure, [[spoiler: he seemed like a pretty decent guy before, and he also just saw his two best friends die horrible deaths. But after his FaceHeelTurn, Yoder becomes downright cruel and murderous.]]

* EpilepticTree: ** Okay, so how did [=InGen=] obtain Mosasaur DNA? Gerry even mentions that it would be next to impossible to find any. ** Dr. Sorkin's journal seems to imply that it might have been completely artificially engineered from the DNA of other animals. It would certainly explain why the Mosasaur has crocodile-like scales, when fossil evidence indicates real Mosasaurs had smooth skin.

** Dr. Sorkin's journal mentions that being able to clone ''Triceratops'' has confirmed her suspicions that the related ceratopsian ''Torosaurus'' was really a mature specimen rather than a distinct genus. This is an actual ongoing debate among paleontology, and a current one at that.

* JerkassWoobie: Nima can come off as this, given how understandable her intentions are. [[spoiler: Yoder.Yoder becomes one, as the gruesome fates of his friends push him off the deep end.]]

The exact details of his offscreen death are never disclosed. ** The ''Herrerasaurus'' make one brief appearance in episode two during one of the odder action segments, and then are never heard from again. The Mosasaur from the last episode may also count.

* {{What An Idiot}} / {{Idiot Ball}}: It's hard to understand why Yoder and Oscar leave a wounded Vargas unattended during episode two, especially when Yoder wants to help him and there are dangerous creatures around.

* {{What An Idiot}} / {{Idiot Ball}}: Nima had no reason to crash the jeep at the beginning of episode one. If she hadn't, then she might have gotten out of there and been none the worse. ** Gerry delays far too long when he sees Lady Margaret approaching the gate. ** It's hard to understand why Yoder and Oscar leave a wounded Vargas unattended during episode two, especially when Yoder wants to help him and there are dangerous creatures around.around. ** During episode three, Jess moves into the smaller parallel tunnel while Sorkin and her father argue over the lysine contingency. It's bad enough that she leaves the safety of the main tunnel and possibly lets the raptors breach the barrier, but on top of that the tunnel is in total darkness where just anything could sneak up on her. ** Gerry and Nima are separated from the others during episode four. They then have what can be an inordinately long conversation, during which time they are making virtually no progress towards the marine exhibit. This is all the more jarring when Gerry was getting worried over Jess's safety just a minute ago. ** In episode four, [[spoiler:Yoder]] runs for the can while mere feet away from the ''Tyrannosaurus''.
