* CaughtWithYourPantsDown: In the film there's a scene where the boy, seen from behind, is clearly stimulating himself manually. The girl asks him "What are you doing?" and he guiltily says "Nothing!" In another scene when they're arguing, she taunts him extensively about this.

* MightyWhitey: Dick Lestrange, son of the [[KissingCousins original couple]]. He appears in the sequel, ''The Garden of God'' and the followup novel ''The Gates of Morning''. He can best be described as an intelligent, likable and very easygoing SurferDude. Katafa, something between a JunglePrincess and a BrokenBird, washes up on the shore and causes trouble. She [[ButNotTooForeign isn't really a Kanaka, but a Spanish girl]] who was RaisedByNatives. To ensure the plotline, she's been cursed as an untouchable. After sundry how-likely-is-''that'' events, Dick and Katafa [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove fall in love]]. Katafa [[DefrostingIceQueen becomes touchably soft]] and takes him home with her, where he is ''immediately'' [[AwesomeMomentofCrowning hailed as King]], the old King having died in Katafa's absence. More to the point, laid-back ol' Dick immediately accepts, as a matter of course! (Having earlier picked up a Royal MacGuffin probably helped with this decision.) Stacpoole (usually fairly non-racist) clearly implies that in their present predicament, the natives need a white couple to save them.

Katafa [[DefrostingIceQueen becomes touchably soft]] while Dick becomes both active and passionately caring; she's kind of his Muse. She takes him home with her, where (partly due to his having the royal war club) he is ''immediately'' [[AwesomeMomentofCrowning hailed as King]], the old King having died in Katafa's absence.

* GodivaHair: Emmeline. To the point (as pointed out by RogerEbert) of {{Narm}}. The makeup artists had to glue Shield's hair to her chest to prevent any inadvertant nip slips.

* GladToBeAliveSex: Presumably the reason for the first sex scene in ''The Awakening''. The two leads discover a skeleton near their lean-to, and Emma freaks out. Not long after, she gives Dean her virginity.

* DullSurprise: The acting from the leads in these films are pretty wooden. Brooke Shields was the first actress to win a Razzie and Milla Jovovich and Brian Krause were both nominated for Worst New Star.

* RagingStiffie: In the first film, there are many shots of Christopher Atkins swimming naked underwater with an erect penis. How did the filmmakers got away with an R rating for that is a mystery. In Return Of The Blue Lagoon, Richard wakes up with an erection. Well, that sort of happens when you're close to Milla Jovovich.
