* {{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.

** Imagine Gurgi meeting Gollum from ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings''.

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

features. It was also the studio's biggest BoxOfficeBomb, and remains something of an OldShame that the studio has largely ignored for decades.

* 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]].

** [[http://moviepilot.com/p/why-was-disneys-the-black-cauldron-almost-rated-r/3649668 It was very nearly rated R]], in fact, and was [[{{Bowdlerize}} heavily]] [[WhatCouldHaveBeen edited]] to avoid this fate.

** The same also happens to Ursula in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''. Disney has a real problem with witches, huh?

Added DiffLines:

** A bit meta but regarding the hair color: ironically, people often think [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]] was the first [[RebelliousPrincess Rebellious Princess]] and she's a FieryRedhead; but it's actually Eilonwy who's the first [[RebelliousPrincess Rebellious Princess]] but ''she'' was changed to a blonde for the Disney movie...

** Yikes the last one... she forcibly stuffs him between her breasts after transforming him into a frog... while attraction is completely one-sided from her side and he's been avoiding it. If this had been gender-reversed and not a cartoon, it would be clear for the full-on sexual assault that it is.
