** Despite having a good vantage and plenty of time to set up his shots, Van Pelt is unfamiliar with his new weapon (and hasn't had time to dial in the scope properly) and so misses Alan.

* MadeOfIron: Van Pelt. He takes a chop-block to the shins from a canoe powered by broken scuba tanks moving fast enough to shatter his legs. It doesn't even give him a limp. Not five minutes later he is buried under a few hundred pounds worth of falling paint cans, and isn't even fazed. Justified, the guy apparently lives in the Jumanji jungle. Everything going on for the protagonists is sheer hell but for Van Pelt [[ButForMeItWasTuesday its just another day.]]

** The weapon wasn't real, neither was the store it came from, technically speaking. They were part of the alternate universe created by Jumanji, a universe which ceased to exist as soon as Alan won the game.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Van Pelt is [[MediumAwareness fully aware that he is a character from a board game]]. When he's told his elephant gun has been out of commission for about ninety years he doesn't bat an eyelid, nor is he worried by the fact that he seems to be wandering around in the wrong century. He even knows that he is meant to hunt Alan purely because Alan rolled the dice for him.
-->'''Van Pelt:''' ''[when Sarah asks him why he didn't shoot her]'' You didn't roll the dice. Alan did.

** Aunt Nora also embodies this trope, particularly in her final scene in the movie--after dealing with a stampede, monkeys in her car, seeing a police car get dragged off by giant plants, and getting washed down the street by a flood along with a bunch of crocodiles, she makes it back to the ruined house and sees in quick succession Alan's legs extending from the ceiling, the lion in her bedroom, and Peter as a monkey (who is now talking to her). At this point it's completely justified for her to have an InelegantBlubbering FreakOut and need to be shut in the closet for her own good/safety.

* KidsAreCruel: The gang of boys who beat Alan (and steal his bike) at the film's beginning. Would be acceptable (seeing as it's a family feature) if they had actually gotten their comeuppance.

* PantheraAwesome: The game conjures a huge male lion to menace the protagonists. Alan traps it in a bedroom and it spends the rest of the movie sleeping, only getting out near the end.

* SureLetsGoWithThat: Averted at one point. Sarah, Alan, and Peter tried to stop Carl from arresting Alan, because he's Sarah's fiancé, but then he recalled that Peter and Judy said Alan was their uncle. They are never given the chance to clarify their statements due to Alan insisting on being taken when he hears Van Pelt's gunshot.
