* OhCrap: In the first book, Brian realizes that rescue is unlikely because the pilot jerked the plane off course during his heart attack, putting the crash hundreds of miles away from the original flight plan and any subsequent search attempts.



* ShownTheirWork: In spades. The book gives detailed descriptions of how to start fire with flint and steel, making working arrowheads and the problems that are run into when attempting to spear fish. This is because the author, Gary Paulsen, has done all these things. He has lived in the wilderness by himself. He probably had more supplies than the clothes on his back and a hatchet, but that's beside the point.

* ForeignQueasine: Initially Brian is {{Squick}}ed out at the prospect of eating raw turtle eggs, but he grows to enjoy it. Similarly in ''River'', the man Brian takes into the woods has a similar reaction when Brian suggests finding stumps and digging them open to eat the grubs inside.

* OrificeInvasion: Before Brian can get a fire started and be protected by its smoke, literal ''clouds'' of mosquitoes would descend upon him and cram themselves into his eyes, nose, mouth, and everywhere else they could to get at his blood.



** The mosquitoes. In ''Hatchet'', before Brian can start a fire and be protected by its smoke, they're described as a cloud of bloodthirsty insects that cram themselves into his nose, mouth, and everywhere else they can get.
