* AllCavemenWereNeanderthals: Averted. All of the major characters except maybe The Almighty and Old Mother are normal, physically modern ''Homo sapiens''. The Almighty's exact nature as a human or HumanAlien is left unclear, whereas Old Mother is heavily implied to be a bonafide neanderthal and the LastOfHerKind.

** The Sabre Tooth in Africa. Sure, some species of Sabre-Toothed Cats did live in Africa, however the species featured in the film is clearly a [[PopularityPower Smilodon]], which only ranged from North and South America.

A spectacularly [[AnachronismStew historically inaccurate]] movie about a mammoth-hunter named D'Leh, ostensibly set in the year 10,000 B.C. During a "great hunt" of a stampede of wooly mammoths, D'Leh ''appears'' to slay a gigantic ultra-mammoth and is awarded his tribe's sacred artifact, the White Spear. This allows him to claim any woman in the tribe as his wife, and he chooses his childhood friend Evolet (who was originally from somewhere else, and found by the tribe wandering the tundra half-dead.) Then guilt over not officially slaying a mammoth causes him to return the spear, angering said childhood friend.

After traversing some [[PatchworkMap seriously weird terrains]], and having a few small adventures along the way, D'leh is separated from the rest of the party. He ends up at an agricultural village in a desert. There, he manages to impress the local chief, and makes friends with the natives. It turns out that this and many other villages have been victimized by the same raiders that kidnapped D'Leh's people, and taken to "the Mountain of the Gods." The chief somehow concludes that D'Leh is TheChosenOne who will overthrow the evil god who is doing this.

* {{Atlantis}}: Another version of the God's origin story has him coming from a distant homeland that sank beneath the ocean.
** 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.

* MightyWhitey: The quasi-African tribesmen living in the desert have [[PropheciesAreAlwaysRight a prophecy]] that "one day [[TheChosenOne the one will come]] who will free our people". [[BecauseDestinySaysSo And that one is D'Leh.]] Obviously, they just can't do it themselves.
* 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 {{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: Woolly mammoths helped build the pyramids. Never mind that they're ''woolly'' mammoths and thus should be somewhere cold. Which Egypt isn't. To be fair, the implication seems to be that the mammoths were captured and brought there for use as labor just like the human slaves, not that they're actually native to the desert.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Baku wants to be a hunter from the very start of the movie, becoming a TagalongKid in pursuit of that and is reluctantly accepted in this role by Tic'tic and D'leh, and gets his chance in a metaphorical hunt during the climax after D'leh starts a stampede among the captured mammoths. Furthermore, Baku's motivation in the film is the find and kill the one-eyed slaver as revenge for his mother's death at the start of the film. Finally, in the very last battle in the entire film, he gets his chance: One-Eye is advancing on Baku's friend Tudu and Baku has a spear. He raises his spear, hurls it at his archenemy...and completely misses. What did you ''think'' was gonna happen, Baku? You've never used a spear before! Luckily, Nakudu is there to ''successfully'' kill One-Eye in the same way that Baku tried.
