* 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.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Even The Horned King's men are terrified of the Cauldron Born...and with good reason as they will attempt to transform any human they encounter into one of them.

* AdaptationDistillation: One of the more weirder Disney examples; it cobbles together the characters from the first book and story elements of the first and second novels, leading to something of a strangely mixed, 85-minute film version of the first two novels.

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Completely averted by the Horned King. He seems to be physically frail, never moves faster than at a shambling pace, demonstrates no magical powers independent of the Cauldron, and is easily overpowered by Taran in the climax.
