** When the pod dives to go under the oil slick and escape the whalers, the nigh-total darkness and tense music make the threat of the whales dying ''very'' apparent. It culminates in one member of the pod being unable to hold his breath any longer, rising to the surface to breathe, and then [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath promptly suffocating and sinking down into the abyss as his blowhole becomes clogged with oil]].

A bird is also seen trapped in the oil, flopping about on the surface before it sinks out of sight.

* AccidentalNightmareFuel: Many who watched the movie as children were understandably terrified by a few scenes:
** Some prints were so dark that a few scenes were almost pitch-black. Samson and Sally exploring the sunken ship largely looked like a black screen with the occasional surreal, creepy image popping out.

** Samson getting sick and passing out at the toxic waste site. He's rescued by the blue whale, but [[spoiler: that whale gives a few brief shudders, indicating he's not so well himself. He's later found dead.]]

* AngstWhatAngst: Sally watched her parents die, as well as some of her friends, but she seems none the worse for wear. This could arguably apply to [[spoiler: Samson.]]

* TearJerker: the death of [[spoiler: Sampson's mother]], although the over all lack of importance it has in the story might dampen it.
** [[spoiler: The smiling whale even moreso. It's all in the sad look Sampson gives when he realizes what has happened]]
