* RougeAnglesOfSatin: According the the official title card and posters the film is actually named "Jaws The Revenge" with no colon. Whether this was a typo on someone's part or just CreatorsApathy is unknown.

to:

* AdaptationalNiceGuy: The Novelization (which was closer to the original script than the film itself) implies Hoagie is some sort of drug smuggler or the like. There's no hint of this in the film, however.

Added DiffLines:

** At the end the shark helpfully sticks it's torso way the hell out of the water so Ellen can impale it with the prow, the implication being it's standing on it's tail like a dolphin. Even small sharks can't do that, let alone 25 foot great whites.


* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Sean Brody. Though it could have been worse, as the original script had ''Martin'' dying to serve as a launchpad for his wife's sunny Caribbean adventure, with even her burgeoning romance with Hoagie intact. Thankfully, Roy Scheider refused to desecrate his character so much.

Added DiffLines:

*** Though the shark does stick its head out of the water and roar at Quint in the original movie. Quint ignores this feat and shoots it in the jaw for its trouble. The shark in the third movie growls frequently.

Added DiffLines:

* ItWasntEasy: After Hoagie's plane is attacked by the shark and pulled under, he appears climbing up into the heroes' boat. When Hoagie is asked how he managed to escape from the shark, his only answer is "It wasn't easy!"


* WaterIsDry: When Hoagie gets out of the water in the climax, his clothes are completely dry. In Siskel and Ebert's review of the film, [[https://youtu.be/LK4Jir_Xyes?t=2m57s they both take the time to make fun of this.]]

* OlderThanTheyThink: As [[http://jabootu.net/?p=589 this review]] points out, the main things this movie is mocked for (the shark roaring and the shark seeking revenge) were actually present to some degree in the previous films (E.G in ''Film/Jaws2'' Martin points out it's weird they are being attacked by another shark and half-seriously suggests it might be looking for revenge. However, the whole idea is only brought up in one scene to be shot down and forgotten about.) Why this film is so reviled is mainly because it takes those two story elements and brings them UpToEleven, as if someone was deliberately trying to take the most ridiculous bits of the ''Jaws'' universe and make them stand out as much as possible.

** Overlaps with ScienceMarchesOn, the plan to overload the shark's electroreception sense wouldn't work because great whites, along with several of their relatives such as the mako shark, don't rely on that sense very much, meaning it wouldn't react to the device unless it was powerful enough to actually electrocute the shark.

* InfantImmortality: Thea survives her encounter with the shark.

Added DiffLines:

* CanonDiscontinuity: The film essentially pretends ''Jaws 3-D'' doesn't exist. According to [[https://thebloodyshow.com/2018/06/29/it-comes-in-waves-jaws-the-revenge-a-tale-of-hollywood-folly/ this article]], Joseph Sargent made this decision during pre-production, partly because of ''3-D'''s reputation but mostly because they didn't expect that film's stars to be available to reprise their roles.

Added DiffLines:

** Furthermore, these can't just be HandWaved as saying the shark was sending her psychic visions or something, as THIS SHARK wasn't there to witness the end of the first film either!
