* SanitySlippage: In the first movie Ace was quite eccentric but had some "sane" moments. In this movie he's devolved more or less into a PsychopathicManchild and all his antics are definetly crazier than before.

* DoNotPassGo:
--> '''Ace:''' ''Alrighty then! [smacks man in the face, who looks like "The Monopoly Guy", which knocks him unconscious, drapes him over his shoulders and begins to sing and dance exotically] [shakes man] Do not pass go! Do not collect $200!''

* WouldntHitAGirl: When Ace confronts a woman wearing an animal skin across her shoulders, and she pompously says there's nothing wrong with it and that he should try it sometime, he replies by cold-clocking her slightly-less-obnoxious husband and wearing ''him'' over his shoulders like an animal skin, rather than her. It's likely this trope is the reason.

* ChasedByAngryNatives: At the end of the second film. Ace deflowered the bride-to-be of the Wachootoo Tiny Warrior that already mopped the floor with him earlier. Ace managed to skate out of being killed by the Wachootoo and was on friendly terms with both them and the Wachati. Then the Tiny Warrior notices... cue ''everyone'' chasing Ace in murderous anger.

* LighterAndSofter: Has considerably less offensive swearing, sexual jokes, and vulgarity than the original film. Not that this affects the quality of the film, which is well worth watching.

* GiveMeASword: In ''When Nature Calls'' Ace gets a spear thrown into his leg while fighting a tribal native. He shouts for his sidekick to throw him a spear, which he does... [[HilarityEnsues stabbing him in the other leg]].
* GPSEvidence: In ''When Nature Calls'', Ace gets shot by multiple darts and suspects the darts are being shot by the Wachootoo tribe. After the scene with the tribe, he gets shot again and finds out the Wachootoo dart didn't match the original darts. Ace discovers the original dart was carved from a "red, fungus-bearing acala" which is grown only in one area in the jungle where the bat-nappers are hiding.
* HighClassGlass: The "Monopoly Guy" in ''When Nature Calls''.
* HollywoodNatives: The Wachoochoo and Wachatis tribes from ''When Nature Calls,'' complete with chalk-white face and body paint, fur loincloths, and bad hygiene.

* InstantSedation: ''When Nature Calls'' uses the humorous muscle paralysis angle, of course, but he's still blacking out after a rather short chase. Of course, three darts ''was'' too much. So were [[UpToEleven the half-dozen or so]] that nailed him in the back [[HopeSpot right after he "thought he lost them".]]
* JustPlaneWrong: In ''When Nature Calls'', the opening sequence features Ace climbing some Alpine-looking mountains, dressed in suspenders and shorts often stereotypically portrayed on Swiss alpinists, and there is a helicopter flying around him painted in crimson red with a white cross at each side -- the symbol and flag of Switzerland. The aircraft's tail number (license plate)? Canadian registration. [[CaliforniaDoubling Location shooting indeed...]]

* LighterAndSofter: ''When Nature Calls'' has considerably less offensive swearing, sexual jokes, and vulgarity. Not that this affects the quality of the film, which is well worth watching.
* MisplacedWildlife: In the sequel, which takes place in Africa. The Indian elephant is excusable, as they're much more docile and easier to train than African elephants. But not a single animal in Quinn's warehouse was African. There were a Bengal tiger (Asian), a jaguar, macaws and a toucan (all South American). Quinn also wasn't surprised to see Spike, a South American black-capped capuchin. He most likely illegally smuggled the animals away from their natural habitat to put on his safari tour. Ace, when he first meets Quinn, points out that his pet raven Tiki isn't even from Africa.
* NoNeedForNames: In ''When Nature Calls'' apparently, at the monastery, no one wears "labels". However, once you start inquiring about "the man who talks with his rear" [[IdiotHero they know who you're talking about right away]].

* NotSoStoic: The Monks from the second film. When introduced, they're all meditating and peaceful. When they learn that Ace is leaving, they start partying with loud music, wine, throwing toilet paper, and one guy dancing in his underwear.

* ProductPlacement: An obvious ad of Subway is placed on a highway billboard early in ''When Nature Calls''. Probably not so much product placement as irony, as literally right before that Ace mentions something about loving being out in the wild, i.e. without things like Subway.

* SmugSnake: The BigBad in the second movie.
* SolidGoldPoop: In ''When Nature Calls'' the motivation for the bad guys to want to get rid of the peaceful tribe is to get their hands on their guano-rich lands, thereby giving them a chance to make a killing on the fertilizer market.
* StandingBetweenTheEnemies: At the climax of ''When Nature Calls'', Ace stops two mounting armies by running between them holding the sacred bat they had been about to fight over.
