* 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.

** The piranha scene, while really funny, also gets into this. Tantor's mother loses track of him when the elephants are freaking out over the "piranha", and in the ensuing stampede, Kerchak has to save a baby gorilla from being trampled to death.

** Tarzan's parents desperately tried to fend off Sabor, but failed, and their son would likely have starved to death or been eaten by another predator if Kala had not found him.



** Sabor, the leopard that killed Tarzan's family when he was only an infant, is apparently still alive and dangerous when Tarzan is an adult in his early twenties, despite the fact that leopards normally only live 12-17 years.

There are exceptions, but such an elderly cat would definitely ''not'' be so insanely fast and agile.

* 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).

--> ''Clayton'': Do it. Prove you're a savage!\\
''Tarzan'': (lowering the knife) No. I'm not like you.
