* {{Badass}}: All the Jumanji inhabitants - even Trader Slick



* YouKillItYouBoughtIt: If you somehow manage to find a way to defeat Van Pelt permanently, you become the new Van Pelt. "[[SomeoneHasToDoIt There must always be a Van Pelt. It's the rules of the game.]]" When [[spoiler: Peter]] is saved from becoming the new Van Pelt permanently, apparently breaking the rule, moments later the real Van Pelt climbs out of the pit he'd been lured into at the beginning. Was it because the real Van Pelt is that {{Badass}}, or because "there must always be a Van Pelt?" [[MathematiciansAnswer Yes]].

* AndroclesLion: [[spoiler: Alan's clue the entire time. The huge, apparently un-killable lion [[SuperPersistentPredator was chasing after him since day one in the game]], ''was his clue''. Showing kindness to the beast concludes his turn. Alan doesn't just feel bad for himself but the animal that was in agony the whole time as well.]]

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Jumanji is dangerously ''unpredictable''. Its hard to tell if its trying to kill you or trying to teach you a lesson in life. It usually seems to be a bit of both - it wants to teach you a lesson, but if you fail to learn that lesson in time...

* ButtMonkey: Peter who gets to be targetted for all of Jumanji's punishements, particular when it comes to being transformed into something else (which means he got to be a ''literal'' example in the first episode). Eventually {{lampshaded}}.

** Jumaki language, meanwhile, is so alien that they need a Jumaki interpretator to communicate with them. It basically sounds like the occasional screeching noise interspersed with a lot of rasps and rumbles.

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: While most of the characters retained their basic personalities from the movie, Aunt Nora's was completely redone. Instead of being a well meaning but stressed woman who is forced to take care of kids but has no idea how to, here she is a competent, strict but caring businesswoman who [[possibly marries Alan when he finally gets released for good.]]
