* CannibalTribe: The Fierce People.
* DenOfIniquity: The bar-brothel. Such a bad place that the BigBad and TheDragon teach the CannibalTribe how to shoot guns there.
* GoingNative: Tommy was raised as a native, but even when he had the chance to return to the city and modern world, he remained a native. Actually, he even becomes the savior and lawful chief of the tribe, first by finding the Sacred stones, then saving the women.
* ImAHumanitarian: The Fierce People eat their enemies.
* LanguageBarrier: Downplayed, since both Bill and Tommy understand a little of each other's language. They still have very different native tongues.
* {{Mayincatec}}: Set in modern Latin America, but still valid with the priests, ceremonial paintings, magic chaman with a drug culture, cannibalism, Sacred stones and the usual jungle with its classic wildlife.
