* FaceDeathWithDignity: Clayton never shows any signs of cowardice. When he is faced with his own gun, he is far from begging for his life and composes himself for his end.

* ObviousVillain: Clayton - if it's not his intimidating appearance, then his impatient and persuasive qualities should also be indicators. Not to mention the fact that he is the most easily angered and most trigger-happy person on Earth.

* NotDrawnToScale: While with some crazy amount of SuspensionOfDisbelief we can accept that two solitary people, one of them a woman caring for an infant baby, devoid of all construction gear could have possibly created anything close to the jaw-dropping treehouse we see in the movie (within, apparently, just a few weeks no less), there is absolutely no conceivable way for them to have drawn that rope bridge across the gorge.

* GeniusBonus: It may just be a coincidence, but Tantor freaks out when a skull is bounced between his tusks in "Trashin' the Camp"; elephants are the only other animal besides humans who recognize bones.
** Another one that's likely unintentional, but [[spoiler:Tarzan has no idea what Jane is doing when she kisses him]]. Mouth-to-mouth kissing is virtually unheard of in the animal world, outside of humans.

* [[ItIsDehumanizing 'It' Is De-simian-izing]]: When Kala brings the baby Tarzan to the rest of the gorillas, Terk and Kerchak both refer to Tarzan as 'it'. Kala, quietly and patiently, uses 'he' and 'him' until they follow her example.

* UriahGambit / BetrayalByInaction: Key point of Clayton's plan to capture the gorillas. He knew Tarzan was a powerful and agile individual who wouldn't like it if someone laid a finger on his gorilla family, so he set him up in a situation that would potentially (and in fact did) overwhelm him and get him captured: have his thugs jump at him ALL AT ONCE as soon as he stepped on the ship that would allegedly head back to England. Needless to say, Clayton reacts just as you'd expect him to (and maybe even ''[[AddingInsultToInjury worse]]'') when Tarzan asks him for help after being captured.

* AdaptationalVillainy: In the novels, Clayton is Tarzan's cousin who inherits the title after Tarzan's parents are presumed dead. His worst fault is that he is not quite as brave or capable as Tarzan. Otherwise, he is a perfectly nice English gentleman, who is willing to sacrifice his life to save Jane. Compare that to the EgomaniacHunter seen in the movie.
* AdaptationDistillation: In the film, Tarzan is raised by gorillas. In the books, he is raised by "Mangani", some kind of ill-defined, made-up FrazettaMan while gorillas are AlwaysChaoticEvil. Disney presumably changed this to reflect how [[ScienceMarchesOn science has marched on]] since the days of Burroughs, revealing gorillas to be {{Gentle Giant}}s.

* EmotionSuppression: Kerchak seems to have been much warmer and more loving in the past, but was clearly traumatized by his failure to protect his and Kala's baby from Sabor, and subsequently became a hardened, stoic leader obsessed with protecting his troop at all costs.
