** The magic sword Taran finds glows when in use and makes noises reminiscent of a [[StarWars lightsaber]]. Also, the Horned King's habit of [[FilmTheEmpireStrikesBack throttling Creeper]] whenever he thinks Creeper has [[YouHaveFailedMe failed him]].

** He's a meta-example as well; in the films following [[WaltDisney Walt]]'s death, the majority of the BigBad villains became less and less threatening with each release. The Horned King's role in the film is arguably what got villains in subsequent films to became DarkerAndEdgier as a result.

to:

* EvilTowerOfOminousnessEvilTowerOfOminousness: The Horned King rules from a castle that qualifies.



* EvilGloating
* EvilOverlord: The Horned King.
* EvilSorcerer: The Horned King.

to:

%% * EvilGloating
* EvilOverlord: The Horned King.
King already is a king ruling over a castle, and wants to extend his reign over the world with an undead army.
* EvilSorcerer: The Horned King.
King probably wouldn't be a living skeleton if he didn't have magical ability!
* EvilSoundsDeep: The Horned King.
King adds a low-pitched voice to his already-formidable ambience of evil.
* EvilMinions
EvilMinions: There's already palace guards working for The Horned King by the time Taran meets up with him, and Taran does need to deal with them.
* EvilPlan:The EvilPlan: The Horned King has a good ol' TakeOverTheWorld plot but he needs the Black Cauldron to make it happen.


Added DiffLines:

* FlyingWeapon: Taran's sword briefly flies out of its scabbard and moves on its own, which is enough to impress three witches into wanting to bargain for it.

* {{Expy}}:
** This movie, ''Film/{{Legend|1985}}'', and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'' all feature the same three main characters: a young man in green clothes with a magic sword, a beautiful blonde-haired princess, and a fearsome demon-king. All three came out within a year of each other, meaning that all three were in development at the same time, and couldn't have influenced each other's development. One can only imagine Nintendo's, Disney's, and Ridley Scott's (!) reactions when they discovered what the other two had done.
** Eilonwy looks quite a lot like [[Film/SleepingBeauty Aurora]], primarily in her hair color and outfit design.

* CrapsackWorld: Prydain looks pretty mellow and forested for the most part, but the presence and nature of the Cauldron itself, especially considering that this is a Disney film, is incredibly unnerving and unsafe.

Based on a series of novels, ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfPrydain'' by Creator/LloydAlexander, ''The Black Cauldron'' is easily one of Disney's darkest animated features.

* AllThereInTheManual: Of the Witches of Morva, only one is named; [[Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain the book]] names them all. It also mentions that Dallben was essentially raised by them, explains why Fflewddur's harp keeps breaking and how he got it, and includes the detail that he's not really a bard at all, [[spoiler:but a king who left his kingdom to become a bard, and failed the academy]].
