* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: The sabre-toothed cats are portrayed by lions wearing false fangs. Real sabre-toothed cats were physically very different from modern big cats with sloped backs and short tails like bobcats.

* AnimeAnatomy: An odd example in a film with so much casual nudity: the Wagabu lack any visible genitals.



* BarbieDollAnatomy: An odd example in a film with so much casual nudity: the Wagabu lack any visible genitals.



* JitterCam: An early example of the trope, though not as pronounced as it is today. There's noticeable jitter during the tribal battles, typically reserved for 1 vs 1 shots. Also notable because these are not [[POVShot POV shots]], which most pre-2000 jitter was limited to.

* AccidentalPornomancer: The Ivaka happen to take a liking to Naoh and end up sending most of their women to his hut for sex, much to his initial confusion.

(The Ivanka mate face to face, and Naoh can't figure out why the first woman is lying face-up, until she finally catches on and turns over onto all fours.)



* AnArmAndALeg: When the trio first meet the Kzamm, they have captured Ika and her mate and are hanging them upside down from a tree like game. The next morning, his arm has been amputated and eaten by the cannibals. Ika manages to free them both, but he immediately collapses and dies of his injuries, leaving her alone with no recourse but to join the trio on their quest.

(His death is not entirely obvious, making the scene somewhat ambiguous.)



* NationalGeographicNudity: Ika (along with the other Ivaka females) is naked throughout most of the movie. In particular, Rae Dawn Chong was cast as Ika because she was the most comfortable with nudity. She remained nude and covered in body paint between takes to stay in character. The Ulam wear furs draped loosely over their bodies that often reveal breasts and buttocks.

** The method of fire-making depicted in the movie is 100% accurate. The fire-maker character is played by a Maasai tribesman who actually demonstrated the technique to the filmmakers and was persuaded to recreate it for the cameras.

* AttemptedRape: Played with. The Ulam have a very limited language and no real concept of verbal consent, so when Amouker grabs Ika without permission, she resists and Noah stops him... only to mount her himself a second later.
* BabiesEverAfter: [[spoiler:By the closing scene, Ika has become pregnant with Noah's child.]]

* BiTheWay, SituationalSexuality: After watching Noah and Ika copulate face-to-face for the first time, Amouker approaches Gaw for sex, but is rebuffed.
* BodyPaint: All the Ivaka wear full body paint made of clay and charcoal. Noah is painted in this way when he is initiated into the tribe.
