* NightmareFuel / {{Squick}}: The scene in ''Hatchet'' where Brian swims into the sunken plane to retrieve its cache of emergency gear and sees the plane's dead pilot... after months of rotting in the water with fish tearing at him. He then [[VomitIndiscretionShot vomits]] into the water all around himself. This is another of the novel's RealityEnsues moments - usually such an event is BlackComedy slapstick, but here it results in one of his closer brushes with death, as he's at least a dozen feet underwater at the time and ''inside'' the plane. He nearly drowns before he can struggle out and float to the surface.
* WhatAnIdiot: Probably the response of many readers after Brian kicked that bear, expecting it to walk away sheepishly.
