* The 1984 film ''Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan'' was an attempt at both a more naturalistic and slightly more faithful adaptation of Burroughs' work, including a depiction of Tarzan's returning to England. Notable that except in the film's subtitle, the name Tarzan is never used in any dialog.

** ''Tarzan the Fearless'' (1933) was released as both a movie and a serial. It starred Buster Crabbe, making him the only actor to play Tarzan, Film/{{Flash Gordon|Serial}}, and BuckRogers. Crabbe, like Weissmuller, was an Olympic gold medalist in swimming, and a rivalry between the two was publicized. (In truth they had been friends for years.)

* KillerGorilla: A common adversary of Tarzan. In some versions Tarzan's own ape family has members who fit this trope, and sometimes they are outsiders and enemies of Tarzan's tribe. The original books have both: Kerchak and Terkoz are evil members of Tarzan's tribe, the Mangani (a fictional species of great ape), and the Bolgani (gorillas) are enemies of the tribe.

*''Series/TarzanTheEpicAdventures'' ran in syndication from 1996 to 1997, and drew more from Burroughs' books than most adaptations.
