* ChronicHeroSyndrome: [[ExaggeratedTrope Good lord]]! In just the first two books, Tarzan saves every single one of Jane's party at least twice; Jane herself three times before the exchange a word. He then rescues the French officer who left to rescue Jane. Then he rescues Jane ''both'' from a wildfire and an AbhorrentAdmirer. It's so bad that after he makes an enemy of some Russian spies (because he rescued a woman from them) they [[ExploitedTrope lure him to an ambush]] using the cries of a distressed woman.

The first novel points out that his ancestry is where he inherited his physique (the potential of which was developed by his jungle upbringing) and his extraordinary intelligence. His European heritage was not presented as making him somehow "better" suited to the wild than the indigenous tribes.
