* ScaredOfWhatsBehindYou: The Kzamm aren't frightened by Amouker's IntimidationDemonstration, they're afraid of the herd of mastodons behind him.

Added DiffLines:

* IntimidationDemonstration: A big factor in conflicts between human and proto-human tribes. The Kzamm smash their clubs on the ground when they approach the Ulam. Amouker boldly responds with his own demonstration.

* BigBeautifulWoman: Seems to be the ideal of beauty among the Ivaka, to the point that the much thinner Ika is mistreated for not conforming.

to:

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Naoh is the most handsome member of Ulam, and he is our primary hero. Our heroine Ika conforms to modern sensibilities of attractiveness, being sleek and slender, while her tribe prefers women that would be considered obese by conventional modern tastes. By contrast, the villains of the film, including the rival tribes of sub-humans and the treacherous members of the Ulam, are all ugly.

* GoryDiscretionShot: Subverted. The film is quite bloody and gory in places, most notably the scene where a spear is thrust through a Wagabu's mouth and out through the back of it's head.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler:The group returns with fire...only for it to be extinguished by a careless man. Naoh tries to make fire with sticks, to no avail. Then Ika tries...and succeeds!]]

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Ulam "courtship" consists of males grabbing random females and mounting them with little to no verbal communication or negotiation. This causes some problems when Ulam males come into contact with Ivaka (''Homo sapiens'') females.

** The Ulam don't understand laughter. When Ivaka laughs for the first time, they become unsettled. Later, they seem to have adopted the concept and bring it back home with them.

* AllCavemenWereNeanderthals: Subverted: The Ulam (the trio and their tribe) and Kzamm (cannibals) resemble Neanderthals, but the Ivaka are clearly ''Homo sapiens'', and the Wagabu are shaggy and bestial, suggesting a more primitive species of hominid.

Added DiffLines:

** The idea of three different hominid species being found in relative proximity in the late Pleistocene wasn't supported when the movie came out, but it is now that both Neanderthal and Denisovan remains have been identified in southern Siberia and dated to about 50,000-40,000 (just before or around the time modern humans also moved into the area).
