** It isn't dramatized, but when Tarzan tells Jane that Kala is his mother, for a second Jane thinks that she gave birth to him after sleeping with his father.

** To be specific, this is the ''job'' of a Silver Back Gorilla. They are the Alpha of their family, and will sooner show full on aggression towards an intruder than ignore them. Researchers that have lived with Gorillas for extended periods of time have only managed to do so because they knew how to interact with a Silver Back to the point where it '''wouldn't''' rip them apart. Kerchak may have been a JerkAss at times, but he was only doing what was required of him.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Clayton. In the novels, he 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 EgomanicHunter seen in the movie.

* InASingleBound: Pulled off by Tarzan during the escape sequence aboard the ship that was supposed to take him and the rest to England (much to his pursuers' surprise and awe), point A being [[BuildingSwing the top of a mast]] and point B being [[LiteralCliffhanger the top of the ship's funnel]] at a rather impressive distance. Partially [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that the creators wanted him to be able to pull off stunts no actor could replicate in real life (see RuleOfAnimationConservation below).



* UriahGambit: 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. Doubles as BetrayalByInaction given Clayton reacts just as you'd expect him to (and maybe even ''[[AddingInsultToInjury worse]]'') when Tarzan asks him for help after being captured.

Added DiffLines:

* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Clayton taunts Tarzan with this when the latter has his own rifle pressed up to his neck, telling him to "be a man". However, as Tarzan proves, for all the rage he feels, he will ''not'' be the man Clayton is, and ''smashes his rifle to pieces''.

** While describing Tarzan and drawing him, Jane's expressions and tone of voice get very...''intense'', so to speak, to the point that her father jokingly asks if he should leave her alone with the blackboard.
