* NightmareFuel: The idea of getting overwhelmed by forty dogs and torn to pieces a la Curly if you so much as ''fall down.''
The Starving dogs part is terrifying: Imagine a group of dozens of dogs some who were probably loyal sled dogs left or lost to the wild come crawling silently into your camp as skeletal animals completely insane and hell bent on eating everything including the protagonists.
on top of that they basically win despite many of the being killed because the team just couldnt stop them.

Not long after this the quiet and gentle Dolly: snaps with a blood curdling heart breaking howl, and its so bad that she terrifies everyone, even buck chasing him all over until she is brutally killed with an axe.

* BookEnds: When published with ''White Fang''.
** Amusingly, it works no matter which order you read them in - if you start with ''Call of the Wild,'' the bookends are set in human homes, while starting with ''White Fang'' has the bookends in the forest.

* GaryStu: Buck, while at first a rather normal dog, slowly evolves into this within the course of the book. He becomes smarter and more cunning and more brave and more loyal than any other dog : essentially, he has no flaws by the end of the book. After a while, you begin to wonder about the nigh-constant stream of praise both London and the other characters feed Buck. Though to be fair with London, he does gets some character development and goes through realistically brutal trials to become as incredibly {{Badass}} as he is.
** GodModeSue: At the end of the book, arguably considering he took out an ''entire tribe'' of Yeehats without a scratch on him.
