* OutOfGenreExperience: Despite all the ArtisticLicensePaleontology, the comic is devoid of any obvious fantasy elements -- in fact Rahan very often debunks any claim of magic in the setting. And then, an issue feature him lost in a bizarre world that he thinks at first is the afterlife, with completely fantastic monsters and inexplicable forces. [[spoiler:Turns out this is all [[MushroomSamba a dream caused by hallucinogetic mushrooms]].]]

Somewhere A Palaeontologist Is Crying is now Artistic License Paleontology. Bad examples and ZCE are being removed.
* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: Rahan regularly encounters dinosaurs. It's made even [[YouFailBiologyForever weirder]] by the fact that he ''also'' comes across regular paleolithic fauna such as mammoths and cave bears. The writers try to {{handwave}} the dinosaurs by repeatedly stating that they're leftovers from a bygone age, but it really just comes across as either carelessness or RuleOfCool.

Removed the Abhorrent Admirer bit because, near as I can tell, it was just a non-canonical joke story outside the general spirit of the series.
* AbhorrentAdmirer: At one point Rahan is kidnapped by a tribe of hyena-women (really, ''really'' ugly women). [[BizarroEpisode He saves himself for the hideous fate of sleeping with all of them.]]
