* AllMythsAreTrue: Subverted with El Gordita(Who is not a vampire} but if the region that the family is in has lore, it's true.Namina Enkiyo? totally true. A dolphin that can transform into a beautiful human woman and leaves the sea looking for a platonic partnership with a human? Yep.

** In "Valley Girls", Eliza takes a tape recorder from Debbie without asking for permission. After trying to take a boulder from some gorillas to push the ComVee out of the mud, she learns from the gorillas that if you want something, you should ask for it. A very great lesson for the kids—except for the fact that Debbie would have said no if Eliza asked.

* CoolCar: The ComVee probably counts, even if it's not really a car -- it's [[ClownCar apparently]] the size of an apartment, has at least one smaller vehicle stored inside it, is amphibious and seaworthy, can handle wilderness and mountain ranges, and can enter a nigh invulnerable "security mode".

** The episode "A Shaky Foundation" played this to the max. The Thornberrys are unexpectedly joined by Tom Ravenhurst, a Foundation production official who turns out to be the son of the Foundation's head. He spends the entire episode trying to make some changes to the show. While his idea of giving Nigel a catchphrase wasn't bad, his other ideas greatly interfere with making a quality episode. He also treats the 12-year old Eliza like she's 5 (which naturally ticks her off). To make matters worse, he is incredibly stupid and even proves TooDumbToLive when he ignores warnings from Nigel about driving the ComVee up a very narrow mountain road, causing the ComVee to go out of control down the mountain and into a river. One really has to wonder of his father gave him his current job because he had similar results in previous employments.

** When Eliza discovers Donnie smuggling an Aye Aye in the ComVee, she hides it from her parents and brings it into the village where she knows the people are superstitious of it... even though she saw where its nest was and her parents almost certainly would have helped return it to safety.

* ShellShockedVeteran: Implied in the movie to be the case with Nigel's father Radcliffe, a former R.A.F. colonel and veteran of [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII the Second World War]]. While sleeping he wakes up to the sound of a motor starting and thinks he is in the middle of "the Blitz", until his wife tells him he is dreaming. The sound is actually Debbie using the ComVee's jungle bike to go look for Eliza and Donnie.

*{{Foreshadowing}}: A minor example in the movie: Sloan and Bree Blackburn allow Eliza and her friends to stay for the night, but forbid them from going inside their trailer. [[spoiler:Thus hiding evidence of their true occupation as evil poachers]].



* ObviouslyEvil: Averted with the poacher couple Sloan and Bree Blackburn in the Wild Thornberries Movie, they're actually rather good at keeping their cover.

Added DiffLines:

* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:Rebecca the Elephant]] in "Forget Me Not", who dies peacefully of old age at the end of the episode. She makes it clear to Eliza that she does not need nor want to be taken care of or healed, having accepted that it is her time to pass on, her life having been as long and full as she would have wanted. She also displays saintlike patience with the understandably distraught Eliza during the entire scene, assuring her that they don't need to necessarily make the moment a "goodbye" if she doesn't want to.


Added DiffLines:

* NotAfraidToDie: In "Forget Me Not", [[spoiler:Rebecca the Elephant]] makes it clear to Eliza that as she's passing on of old age, she does not need nor want someone to take care of or heal her, as she feels that it's simply her time to pass on and that she lived her life as long and full as she would have wanted.

** From "Forget Me Not", when Eliza, assuming that Rebecca the elephant is exhausted and needs to rest, we get this when she strains herself trying to lie down.
-->'''Eliza:''' Um, maybe you shouldn't do that...I mean since you're so tired, you might not be able to get back up.\\

'''Rebecca:''' [[FaceDeathWithDignity That's the idea...]]
