The film is set to the distant future, estimated to about the 40th century. Planet Earth has been united under a Republic, wars have been abolished and weapons exist only in museums. Sex has been replaced by a ritual involving pills. But Dr. Durand Durand (Milo O'Shea), a scientist, starts developing a new weapon. He and his spaceship vanish in the vicinity of uncharted planet Tau Ceti. Barbarella is sent to retrieve him. The local culture introduces her both to various horrors and to the joys of real sex. She has to face the evil Black Queen (Anita Pallenberg) of the city [=SoGo=], the so-called City of Night.

Added DiffLines:

* AllThereInTheManual: The planet the movie takes place in is only identified as Planet 16. The comics do give it a proper name, which is sometimes noted in summaries of the movie: Lythion.


Added DiffLines:

** Subverted with the Black Queen, who saves Barbarella and clearly wants this, but Barbarella isn't as generous with her.


Added DiffLines:

* WingedHumanoid: The angelic Pygar, who belongs to a species called ornithanthrope. He's puzzled when Barbarella calls him an angel, but he refers to himself as such at the end of the movie.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: We never find out if Hand is still concern about Barbarella, who's ship crashed through the planet's surface. Or if Barbarella's ship ever got fixed, since we last saw it about to be repaired by a scientist.

* RescueSex: With three different people over the course of the movie. Dildano explicitly states that he rescued Barbarella just so he could get this.

* DiscOneFinalBoss: The Black Queen/Great Tyrant because [[spoiler: The real villan is the Concierge who is Durand Durand & he is also TheStarscream & thereby, TheBigBad. If anything, The Black Queen is the real heroine, or at least an AntiHero with a PyrrhicVictory due to letting loose the Mathmos, which destroys the evil city, Durand Durand & saves The Queen, Barbarella & Pygar. Apart from the big Black Guard air battle, Barbarella is the most useless space heroine in history]]
