* AdventurerOutfit: The aforementioned jungle guide wears a classic safari-style getup complete with pith helmet.
* AnimalStampede: Rhinos stampede through the living room after being freed by a dice roll. They are even on the updated cover!



* DeepSleep: After Judy and Peter complete and return the game, they start a jigsaw puzzle, then fall asleep until their parents come home.
* EscapedAnimalRampage: The magical game board causes all kinds of animals to break loose from the game and rampage through the house.



* ExtremelyShortTimespan: The book takes place in one day.



* TheGameComeToLife

to:

* TheGameComeToLifeForcedSleep: Peter succumbs to a temporary "sleeping sickness" after getting bitten by a tsetse fly.
* TheGameComeToLife: Everything the game describes comes out of it and attacks.
* HighConcept: A DarkestAfrica-themed board game that summons real Darkest Africa critters with every roll.
* LuckBasedMission: The board game itself. It's all dice rolls. The "skill" comes in avoiding the various creatures released by the game.
* MeaningfulName: The name "Jumanji" means "many effects" in the Zulu language, referring to the game's [[RealityWarper reality warping magic]].
* MisplacedWildlife: Justified. The jungle that the Jumanji world is composed of is not a real-world environment, but a fantastical, magical creation of the game that seems based on a 19th Century, pop-culture, CommonKnowledge understanding of the jungle, hence all sorts of misplaced wildlife spring from it. For instance, lions and black rhinos don't live in the jungle.


Added DiffLines:

* ResetButton: [[spoiler:Finishing the game is so powerful it can even repair collateral damage.]]
* RiddleForTheAges: Who made Jumanji? What sort of magic did they use? Are the jungle and the city real places (alternate dimension or otherwise) to which the game is merely a portal or a fictional world of the game's creation? We'll never know, and, in-universe, characters who've played the game don't ''want'' to know.
* RisingWaterRisingTension: Happens when the game unleashes a monsoon inside the house.


Added DiffLines:

* SerialEscalation: The game's danger compounds rapidly until the end.


Added DiffLines:

* SnakesAreSinister: One of Peter's last turns causes an eight-foot python to appear on the mantel.


Added DiffLines:

* TrashTheSet: Almost any time a creature from Jumanji appears on-scene.
