* BrickJoke: Hen Wen is left under the guard of the FairFolk when the heroes go after the Cauldron; she doesn't turn up again until the very end of the film, where she's shown back at Dalben's house, revealing to TheObiWan what happened to his student. Doli's there, too, indicating that, unsurprisingly, he got stuck with the job of [[IncrediblyLamePun going wee wee wee all the way home]]...

* TheMentor: Taran's mentor, Dallben, who, at the beginning of the movie, shows Taran just why it is so important that they spend their lives guarding Hen Wen.

Meet the 25th entry in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, 1985's ''The Black Cauldron''. It is the story of Taran, a young Assistant Pig Keeper who desperately wants to be a great warrior. He is charged with hiding Hen Wen, an innocent-looking pig -who is actually an oracle. The BigBad, the Horned King, wants the pig because she can uncover the location of the Black Cauldron, with which he will bring to life an army of invincible, undead warriors to conquer the world.

* SealedGoodInACan: It's implied that Taran's enchanted sword houses the soul of the good king (revealed in a deleted scene to be Gwydion) who built the castle that the Horned King eventually took over. [[note]]In the books this is Dyrnwyn, which becomes the sword of Prince Gwydion, but the sword is never named in the movie.[[/note]] This makes the sword the GoodCounterpart to the Cauldron.

* AerithAndBob: Subverted. None of the names in the movie are normal, but you have titles such as the short, somewhat regular-sounding Taran next to real whoppers like Fflewddur, Eilonwy, and Dallben.[[note]]As a matter of fact, all the names are actually correctly derived from Myth/WelshMythology (just as they are in the books from which the movie is adapted) with the ironic exception of Elionwy, [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign which is purely made-up gibberish.]][[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* VileVillainLaughableLackey: Creeper was comically drawn (by comparison) and cowardly, but he routinely suffered the abuse of the terrifying Horned King.

** 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.
