* MamasBabyPapasMaybe: In ''Beyond Thirty'', a savage tribe is advanced enough to recognize paternity, but matrilineal because of this trope, and not being advanced enough to pull of monogamous marriage.

Added DiffLines:

* DownerEnding: As a prequel to the Moon series, Va-Nah's last known free city is destroyed, leaving the moon chaotic and quite possibly without any free peoples left.


Added DiffLines:

* HappyEndingOverride: If the CanonWelding is taken to its logical extreme, then every setting related to Earth will be destroyed. The Moon trilogy establishes that the leading faction from the Moon will eventually conquer Earth. Although it gets better eventually, the cost is the lost of most modern governments, some loss of historical records, and a slow climb back to previous technology. Barsoom itself seems to have been untouched, and will likely aid in the rebuilding, but this is never addressed.

* DirectLineToTheAuthor: Used for many of his works, including ''Literature/TarzanOfTheApes'', the Literature/JohnCarterOfMars series, and the Literature/{{Pellucidar}} series; see their respective works pages for details. In the Amtor novels, he is visited psychically by the protagonist, Carson Napier of Venus (who oddly enough, rarely uses his psychic powers for anything other than giving Burroughs infodumps).



* LiteraryAgentHypothesis: Used for many of his works, including the Amtor novels, where he is visited psychically by the protagonist, Carson Napier of Venus (who oddly enough, rarely uses his psychic powers for anything other than giving Burroughs infodumps). Memorably, Disney's film adaptation of ''Film/JohnCarter'' includes him as a character (portrayed by Daryl Sabara) and reveals him to be John Carter's nephew. [[spoiler: Right after Burroughs helps Carter get back to Barsoom at the end of the movie, Carter calls out "Find a cause! Fall in love! [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Write a book!]] Do something with your life!"]]
