* NoOntologicalInertia: [[spoiler: The entire movie after the first twenty minutes or so ultimately becomes an AlternateUniverse, which is undone precisely because the game's effects all have no such inertia, meaning that the 25-odd years of changes to the town caused by Alan Parrish's disappearance are undone and Alan is returned to the moment he was initially sucked in.]] The lack of ontological inertia is very broad, such as in how the gun and the ammunition used by Van Pelt at the end of the movie also disappear, even though they were not items generated by the game, but a real shotgun purchased from a real gun store.
** The shotgun 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.

Added DiffLines:

* DrivesLikeCrazy: Alan, as an adult. Justified in that while he'd had some experience driving as a kid, he hasn't been able to practice in 26 years due to being in Jumanji... also, he's panicking because of circumstances both times (they're under attack by giant mosquitoes the first time, and Van Pelt is actively hunting his friends the second) that he's shown behind the wheel.

** During the dinner scene, Aunt Nora says "I can't believe I had to see your principal after your first day." Why is left unanswered in the film - the novelization explains that Judy made up a story about what happened to their parents, one of her classmates (who happens to be the son of the realtor who sold them the house, and who was told the true story by their aunt) calls her a liar, resulting in Peter going berserk on him. When the kid manages to run off, the other kids surround Peter and [[{{Foreshadowing}} call him an animal]] until Judy manages to get through them and drag Peter away.
