Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: While Ellie and Grant are tending to the sick triceratops, Gennaro is the first to suggest that they head back to the Visitor's Center before the storm arrives. Granted, he was in turn reminded by a sudden clap of thunder.


* OnlySaneMan: With the possible exception of the ''Brachiosaurus'' scene, Malcolm only ever regards the dinosaurs shock and terror. He doubts the park's safety and in ''The Lost World'' he's one of the few people in the second movie to be fully aware of the implications of entering dinosaur-infested territory...that this time around has ''no'' fences or other methods of containment.

It still holds up in ''Fallen Kingdon'', where he's publicly advocating that the dinosaurs be left to their fate on soon-to-catastrophically-erupt Isla Nublar while a sizable number of people want them to be saved.


Added DiffLines:

--> '''Malcolm''': Yeah, ooh, aah, that's how it starts. Then later, there's running. And, ah, screaming.

* SmallNameBigEgo: PlayedForLaughs. He's concerned that someone recognizes his name, but as Nedry points out, [[MemeticMutation nobody cares]].

* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler: He shows his true colors when the ''Tyrannosaurus rex'' makes her appearance, [[DirtyCoward abandoning children to die and hiding in a nearby bathroom]]. He's still there when Rexy breaks it open and is quickly eaten.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PretenderDiss: How he regards the [=InGen=] dinosaurs as of ''III''. During his lectures, Grant states outright that they're not true dinosaurs, but rather "circus freaks" and "genetically engineered theme-park monsters".

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousSituation: It's unclear if Nedry foolishly bid too low for the job or if Hammond deliberately omitted several details to get a highly skilled programmer for a cheap price since both refuse to take responsibility for the glitches in the automated system.

Added DiffLines:

* VocalEvolution: Her roar in ''Fallen Kingdom'' sounds deeper, more guttural and more bellow-like to show her old age.


* ItCanThink: Muldoon demands that the ''Velociraptors'' be killed as they're far too intelligent; testing the electric fence for weaknesses (but never the same spot twice; "They remember," he warns) before they were moved to their high-walled prison. [[spoiler:They seem to realize when the power is cut and claw their way through the electrified wire at the top. Even Muldoon underestimates their intelligence -- as he's stalking one ''Velociraptor'', another ambushes him from the side. His FamousLastWords are a genuinely admiring, "Clever girl!" And of course there's that TemptingFate scene: "We'll be all right as long as they can't open doors."]]

* OurFounder: Has a nifty statue erected of him at the entrance of the Hammond Creation Lab.
* PosthumousCharacter: He passed away a few years before the opening of Jurassic World, he is mentioned by Masrani and Claire Dearing in the eponymous film as his dream of a functioning park has come true. Then in ''Fallen Kingdom'' we learn that he had a colleague when founding [=InGen=], Benjamin Lockwood, whom he parted ways with.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Lord Attenborough's health was in decline during the production of ''Jurassic World'', negating any chance of reprising his role even if he wanted to. He was written out as having passed away shortly after ''The Lost World'', [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim which ultimately turned out for the best when Attenborough died in August 2014.]]

* BigBad: She is the cause of the film's premise. By killing the worker at the beginning of the film, the Big One made the investors nervous about the park's safety, which causes Hammond to invite experts like Grant and Malcolm to the island in order to quell their fears. Although locked in a cage, her presence is felt throughout the movie, with Muldoon fearing a potential breach at any moment. And when her pack finally breaks out, the rest of the film revolves around the protagonists trying to the power back on and escaping the island before she finds them.

* BigBad: She's the closest the first movie gets to a main villain as she's the most recurring dinosaur and the first one to attack the protagonists, splitting them up, but she's DemotedToExtra in favor of the raptors. [[spoiler:She ironically helps save the protagonists in the end by killing the raptors attacking them.]]

* AdaptationalVillainy: In the book, Gennaro wasn't the world's nicest guy, but he had some moments of heroism and was genuinely concerned about the park's safety. Here, he's a DirtyCoward who [[spoiler:abandoned Lex and Tim]] and dropped all his concerns when he saw Jurassic Park's money-making potential.

That said, he's never outright ''malicious'' and at worst is cowardly, so "villainy" is a bit of a stretch.
