* HistoricalVillainUpgrade / HistoricalVillainDowngrade: Both are present in equal quantity, and involving [[MindScrew the same people]]:
** HumanSacrifice is treated as something the people of El Dorado doesn't like, but has been led to believe in as a necessary evil. The one person pushing human sacrifice into his culture, Tzekel-Kan, is evil and using it as a form of BloodMagic. There is contradictory evidence about what players of the Mesoamerican ball game were historically sacrificed after, if the losers or the winners, but it seems that (unlike in the film) the sacrifices considered it a honor.
** Cortés did not sail to the New World for gold and glory in RealLife. He was sent to trade with the natives. ''But'' he overruled his orders for gold and glory, even defeating a Spanish army sent to arrest him in the process. He took Spanish prisoners in that battle, but the idea of ''enslaving'' a fellow Christian or Spaniard would have horrified him. He was also a charming diplomat who forged real alliances with some native groups, while in the film he is a humorless hardass who uses the one native who submits to him as a tool to destroy and kill all the others, and betrays him the minute he doesn't get his way.

* RevealingInjury: Miguel receiving a cut during the ball game is what tips Tzekel-Kan off to their masquerade, as gods don't bleed.

* PlanningWithProps: When Tulio tries to formulate a plan for their boat of gold and the pillars that lead to El Dorado, he uses a stack of earrings to represent the pillars and a pendant for the boat. The armadillo spills water over the whole scene, inspiring Tulio to decide to crash the boat into the pillars

* PlotHole: Why does this guy who Tulio and Miguel con have a map to El Dorado and not care about it? Does he not believe in it? If he DOES believe in it, why would he lay it as a wager for a lousy dice game and not just go find the golden city himself? And if he DOESN’T believe in it, then why does he have it in the first place? Did he just find it at a 16th century flea market and decided to keep it in case he needs to re-earn his gambled income?

* ShoutOut: The fighting bull that chased Miguel and Tulio looks a lot like the bull that would occasionally pester WesternAnimation/BugsBunny.

* PalmBloodletting: Tzekel-Khan does this and smears the blood on a carving of the gods to emphasize his realization that Miguel and Tulio are only mortal, because "Gods don't bleed."

** CardSharp: Or more specifically diceSharp as their source of income is pretty much Tulio's trusty loaded dice. It is mentioned in the novelisation that his preferred targets were the wealthy and corrupt.

* {{Disneyesque}}: Sort of. While the animation is clearly as fluid and well-drawn as Disney films, it does break the mold of the Disney School of Mime and Acting with some of the more unique facial expressions, and follows DreamWorks in-house angular character design style. The much more adult-oriented humor is also very anti-Disney.
