* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: General Muoro decides Muska has outlived his usefulness after he test-fires one of Laputa's superweapons on the surface (the understated enthusiasm Muska showed while doing so [[EvenEvilHasStandards may have also pushed The General toward this]]). [[spoiler: Unfortunately, he finds out that 1. He's only shooting at a hologram of Muska and 2. Muska feels the same way about ''him'' and subjects him to a DisneyVillainDeath]].

Inspired by one chapter of ''Literature/GulliversTravels'', ''Castle in the Sky'' is a 1986 fantasy action-adventure tale raised to StudioGhibli standards. Two orphans battle sky pirates and evil government forces trying to seize the legendary floating city of Laputa. This was Creator/HayaoMiyazaki's third film, and the first to be created at Studio Ghibli, which was formed to produce the film.

** Although the performance is pretty subdued overall, at this point Creator/MarkHamill is clearly channeling [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker someone else]].

* LargeHam: In Disney's dub, some of the pirates or incidental characters may qualify (not that it's a bad thing), but most definitely Cloris Leachman's performance as Dola in general (to good effect, as she arguably makes the character the most memorable in the whole movie); likewise, when Muska goes crazy at the end, Mark Hamill really gets to have fun, laughing maniacally and spouting a very memorable "Goodbye! Enjoy the ride!" prior to sending the soldiers to their deaths. There are even places where he sounds like SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker.

* AnAesop:
** Any kind of AppliedPhlebotinum or magic like Aetherium has both benign and destructive uses, and you can't have one without the other. It will inevitably be coveted by evil people who want to abuse it, and can only be protected and used wisely by someone like Sheeta whose heart is pure.

* ActionMom: Dola may not be a stunner ([[IWasQuiteALooker anymore]], if her portrait in her room is anything to go by), but she still leads her pirate clan (consisting of mostly her sons). And she's no [[ArmchairMilitary armchair admiral]] either.

* InMyLanguageThatSoundsLike: The chapter of Jonathan Swift's ''GulliversTravels'' dealing with a floating island by the name of "Laputa" was actually a scathing satire on scientists and the British royal family, both of whom Swift cordially despised. The name was intentionally derived from one of the worst Spanish epithets--"la puta," which loosely translates as "the whore"--partly as a further insult, and partly for the sake of an etymological joke. His idiot-savant scientists [[CanisLatinicus assumed the name derived from Greek or Latin]], when its true origin was obvious to the readers. However, given that this work was centuries old and in another language, Miyazaki [[WeirdAlEffect was innocent of the name's true derivation]] when he decided to base his movie on the works of Swift and Jules Verne. Consequently, many international releases drop the "Laputa:" from the beginning of the title.
