* AcceptableBreaksFromReality: The film did an excellent job of showing that life for people at the time was basically a daily fight for survival and that humans were also not dominant species on the planet.However it is unlikely there would be such differently evolved tribes living in such close proximity to each other and there is some misplaced wildlife. Had this not been written in it would've likely been a very dull story.

* AmbiguouslyBrown: In contrast to the light-skinned Ulam and Kzamm, Ika and the Ivaka tribe cover their entire bodies in paint and have noticeably non-Caucasian features. Ika is played by Rae Dawn Chong, who is mixed raced. The director wanted the Ivaka to not conform to the appearance of any single ethnic group, in that they're a tribe of Cro-Magnons who predate modern ethnicities.

* 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 (as can be seen, briefly, in the behind the scenes documentary). The Ulam wear furs draped loosely over their bodies that often reveal breasts and buttocks.

* 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.)

* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti: The wagabu resemble this in keeping with the now outdated "ape man" trope (see ScienceMarchesOn in the trivia section).

* 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.

* 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.
