* AnachronismStew: The original film was set in 1882, but 'Dumont's Trading Post' is established in 1912, Teddy Roosevelt shows up ''after'' his presidency (1901-09) [[note]]In RealLife he visited Africa in 1909-1910 during the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smithsonian%E2%80%93Roosevelt_African_Expedition Smithsonian-Roosevelt African Expedition]][[/note]] and is running in the 1912 election and "Tarzan and the Flying Ace" is implied to be taking place during UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne. Meanwhile Jane is able to identify Velociraptor, a dinosaur genus described in 1923. It's the easiest to assume that the series {{retcon}}ned the original movie's time period to the 1910-s.

* KillerGorilla: While most ape characters avert this trope, Tublat plays it straight. And Mangani, the Silver Ape inverts it, as he is a ''Healer'' Gorilla.

* KillerGorilla: While most Tublat, the brutal, violent silverback exiled from Tarzan's family is a perfectly straight example. Every other ape characters avert character averts this trope, Tublat plays it straight. And being portrayed as gentle and heroic. Mangani, the Silver Ape even inverts it, as he is a ''Healer'' Gorilla.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: Since the show is set in the jungle, it's hardly surprising that many of the human characters go barefoot. While Tarzan never wore shoes in the first place (aside from whenever he wore the suit his human father left behind), Jane never wears shoes anymore either in the series, having adapted to the jungle setting. Professor Porter still mostly wears his original English clothes.

* LawfulEvil: Lt. Colonel Staquait is a particularly nasty Type IV. He's a high-ranking French Foreign Legion officer who runs the African Cape Doom Prison with an iron fist, works inmates to dehydration, exhaustion, and death, and punishment any kind of weakness or impertinence against him with harsh consequences such as immediate execution. Hugo and Hooft were marked for death as criminals and insubordinate deserters chased down strictly because they disobeyed his direct order to burn down a village of women and children. He even brought a guillotine with him so he could execute the two in a way that was the most cruel simply because he took pleasure in being cruel. It was his behavior that summed up the episode's Aesop as lampshaded by Jane: "Sometimes the people in authority, the ones giving the orders and making the laws, they're the ones who are the real criminals (bad guys)". Ironically enough, the heroes have to break a number of laws (e.g. abetting fugitive criminals to escape, breaking into prison complexes, impersonating government officials like a Magistrate, etc.) to even stop Staquait who more or less follows the law at the time in an exceptionally cruel and ruthless manner. Though it is TruthInTelevision that in the period the show takes place in (1900 to 1915) that desertions were famously common in the French Foreign Legion as it was an extremely regimented life.

* EagleLand: Hugo and Hooft and President Theodore Roosevelt. Both are rare benevolent examples of the boorish type II. Hugo and Hooft are the first Americans shown in the series and they are presented as boorish, shady grifters prone to laziness, vulgar behavior, scamming and gambling, and all around incompetence, but are good people at heart who abhor doing physical harm to innocent people and try to help those who give them aid. Roosevelt is a BoisterousBruiser who treats his time in Africa as a safari to hunt down animals and reacts with disdain towards any complaints to his sense of adventure, but is a decent man at heart who believes in individual freedoms and will refrain from any wanton animal death dealing if asked.
