* CarCushion: DoubleSubverted in the third movie ''World At War''. The Antichrist throws the President out of a skyscraper, and he crashes onto a car below. Nicolae looks down and sees the President's seemingly lifeless body... only for the poor guy to get up and start hobbling away. Nicolae muses "Such a thing is not humanely possible...", then glances upward at [[{{God}} the most likely culprit]].

* InconvenientSummons: The Rapture itself could be considered this, as Christians are pulled out of whatever they were doing at that moment to be with the Lord, and in certain cases inadvertently putting other people into danger, such as in the first movie when Chloe stops her vehicle to find that a tractor trailer trcuk with its Christian driver disappearing from its cab has caused a multiple-vehicle accident.

** In the first movie, Joshua Cothran can be seen wandering in the background doing it. Carpathia has the pose at the end of the second but it's more stress from a ''very'' disappointing night.

* EvilOverlooker: Faintly in the background of ''Tribulation Force'', Nicolae Carpathia's eyes are ''just barely'' visible.



* TranslatorMicrobes: In the first movie, Buck hears a message straight from Daniel chapter 9 in his own language from a mysterious robed stranger (possibly one of the two witnesses) and records it on videotape, only to play it back later and find out that the person was actually speaking in Hebrew. [[AWizardDidIt God's supernatural hand, most likely.]]

* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:After Tsion Ben-Judah's broadcast fails to name ''him'' as ''the Messiah'', ''and'' he fails to actually call it off -- Carpathia apparently sits there all night, then freaks and starts throwing things around the room before yelling some of his frustration at God.

* DullSuprise: The movies are famous for it. If Buck isn't talking, Kirk Cameron isn't acting.

* AdaptationDistillation: The first movie makes the opening attack less of a non-event (by condensing the amount of time between it and the Rapture), plays up the mystery in the first half, puts Buck in a position where he has a lot more influence over the nation, and streamlines the book's rather ping-pong opening sequence. That said, it's still not well-liked.

That said, it's still not well-liked. It also replaces Buck's cowardly agreement with Carpathia to bury his story about Stonagal with Carpathia using the release to remove a competitor and cement his power, making Buck and Stonagal's part of the story actually relevant in this version.

Added DiffLines:

* ShrineToTheFallen: In ''Left Behind II: Tribulation Force'', there are public shrines with pictures of children who have disappeared due to the Rapture.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Toronto as New York for the 2000 movie. If you look closely, the international flags displayed at the UN are actually those of Canadian provinces. Also, the scenes in Israel were shot in a quarry in Ontario.

Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap:
** In the first ''Left Behind'' movie, the look on Buck and Chaim's faces when Russia sneak attacks Israel.
** In the third Left Behind film, the look on Carpathia's face when he sees an incoming missile heading for his tower. Fitzhugh dies, but Carpathia survives.

Added DiffLines:

* ComputerEqualsMonitor: In the first movie, Buck Williams is busy in Dirk Burton's apartment, searching for important files and names, when he sees a sniper's laser sight appearing on the screen and ducks, causing the sniper to miss and hit the monitor, thereby destroying the computer.
