* RaptorAttack: the Terror Birds are essentially used this way, acting uncannily like the velociraptors from JurassicPark

* AmbiguousTimePeriod: (Ignoring the obvious fact of the title) The film appears to be set in the prehistoric times, with the main character encountering both a wooly mammoth and a saber tooth tiger. However, he ends up somewhere that appears to be ancient Egypt or at least Mesopotamia (an emperor is having a large pyramid built). Although he does end up ''destroying'' that civilization...
* AncientAstronauts: Implied. The slaves tell Moa & Baku that The God of the Pyramid [[Franchise/StargateVerse came down from the stars]]. Given the ridiculously advanced (for the setting) technology he and his servants use, they may well be right.

** It seems to be his most plausible origin : in one scene, when Evolet is brought before the God, the camera focuses on some [[AnachronismStew strangely detailed maps]] that are displaying a mass of land in the Atlantic Ocean, between South America and Africa.

* TheDogBitesBack: A subtle example, among the numerous people from disparate countries D'Leh brings with him to the pyramid include a group of giant African warriors. They all sneak in disguised as slaves and an overseer begins continuously whipping their leader, who just crouches down and takes it until D'Leh gives the signal, when he immediately stands up to his full, seven-foot plus height, grabs the overseer by the throat and effortlessly hurls him off the pyramid to his death.

* IfICantHaveYou: [[spoiler:Being rejected by Evolet results in the warlord who kidnapped her to throw a spear into her back, seemingly killing her. He even tells D'Leh, in his own language, "You will not have her either" before being killed himself]].
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: The leader of the warlords grows an interest in Evolet, even buying her to keep her, though his master was not pleased.
* InertialImpalement: This is how D'Leh kills the mammoth. When his spear gets stuck in the ground, he runs away, leading the beast to impale itself. He also does it to the terrorbirds, this time intentional.

* MisplacedVegetation: [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]] notices that the area transitions from the Brazilian rain forests to the South Chinese tropical forest when one of the terror birds chases the hero into an area populated with bamboo. However it could have been a {{Dan Browned}} on his part as there are species of bamboo that do grow in Latin America. On the other hand, the African village elder giving the hero a handful of corn to take back and grow in his tribe is an example of this trope, as maize originated from Central Mexico, not Africa. In addition, while it would have been a fairly good idea to use this as a secret historical phenomenon lost to history where Native Americans received the corn and used it as the major staple of their diet as a result of this leader's gift to the hero (as implausible as it may sound), it has already been established according to documentation {{All There In The Manual}} that D'Leh and Evolet came from the Ural Mountains of Western Russia, making the idea impossible.
* MisplacedWildlife: Wooly mammoths helped build the pyramids. Never mind that they're ''woolly'' mammoths and thus should be somewhere cold. Which Egypt isn't.

* TrailersAlwaysLie: The confrontation with the Smilodon is featured heavily. [[spoiler: It gets stuck in a pit that's filling with water. D'leh says to it "Do not eat me after I free you!". He frees it, then it goes off on its way.]]
