* BestKnownForTheFanservice: The scene where Erika Eleniak pops out of a giant cake while topless is one of the most-remembered scenes from the first film.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: Krill's acts of hostility towards Ryback, beginning with spitting in the chef's soup.
** Krill drowning his crew his both [[MoralEventHorizon despicable]] and [[EvilIsPetty petty]] given that his reasoning is "They never liked me anyway." But the moment is made hilarious when Daumer replies:
--> I bet they fucking love you now, eh?
* EvilIsCool: William Strannix and Commander Krill, primarily because of Creator/TommyLeeJones and Creator/GaryBusey [[EvilIsHammy hamming it up like beasts]], but also for providing a competent challenge for Ryback. Leonard Maltin hilariously described them as [[StealthInsult "better villains than the film deserves."]]
* MoraleEventHorizon:
** Strannix launching two nuclear missiles at Hawaii, out of spite during his VillainousBreakdown.
** Krill turning on the bowel sprinklers to drown his imprisoned former crew, to lour Ryback into a trap. And that's if don't count him betraying the crew and murdering the captain as this.
* {{Squick}}: Ryback [[spoiler:crushing Strannix's eye with his thumb, complete with oozing sludge]].
* SpecialEffectsFailure: It's pretty obvious [[spoiler: Strannix's]] body when he is killed is a dummy.
* TearJerker: Ryback draping the dead Captain's uniform over his body, after Ryback finds the captain killed in cold blood.
* ValuesResonance: Krill calling Ryback a faggot in 1992 was s pretty standard affront to the latter's masculinity. Today it makes Krill into a full-blown PoliticallyIncorrectVillain.
