* FunnyAneurysmMoment: As Indy speaks with Marcus while packing for his trip, Indy says "You sound just like my mother" as he dismissively speaks of the Ark's powers ([[ProperlyParanoid which turn out to be very real]]). In ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'', we learn that Indy's mother passed away during his childhood, and his relationship with his father fell apart afterwards. And he grew to hate his father for being so obsessed with the Holy Grail, rather than focusing upon Indy.

* IconicCharacterForgottenTitle: Upon its original run, the movie did not follow the "Indiana Jones and the X" naming scheme that sequels did, simply titled ''Raiders of the Lost Ark''. However in later home media releases it was retrofitted, ie: ''Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark''.

** In a scene with otherwise impressive effects for the time, the brief shot of the Ark's [[spoiler:fire rushing over the bodies of the Nazis is a pretty obvious-looking miniature]].
