* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: It's rated E and was designed as a kids game, sure, but you'll start questioning the demographic when Andy dies in a way that doesn't involve falling off the screen.

* FairForItsDay: While extremely racist by modern standards, by the standards of the time it was written in this book was incredibly progressive. It should also be noted that the whole point of the book is that, no matter how savage the so-called "savages" of Africa may be, the supposedly "civilized" colonials and [[MightyWhitey Mighty Whiteys]] are almost infinitely more petty and evil. It should also be noted that the book never refers to Africans as being genetically or biologically inferior to whites.

** The native Africans are repeatedly portrayed as violent, ignorant, subhuman cannibals... and those are the good ones.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: It's basically an {{Anvilicious}} book about how horrible people can be, so it's kind of hard to avoid this. Of course SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped was in effect when it was written, hence it's heavy-handedness.

* FridgeHorror: The General Manager purposefully wrecked Marlow's steamer before he arrived so that aid to Kurtz would be delayed. After all, it was "too stupid - when I think about it - to be altogether natural".
