* YouKillItYouBoughtIt: Played with -- after Conan kills Thulsa Doom, King Osric's daughter throws herself at his feet, but Conan has no interest in taking Doom's place and just takes her back to her father. Whether he got some RescueSex on the journey back is left to the audience's imagination.

** Due to mentions of Valhalla, the Celtic-inspired Cimmerians have been combined a bit with the Norse-inspired Aesir and Vanir tribes (''Crom'' is named after the Irish god Crom Cruach).

* OutsideContextVillain: A truly epic introduction of the villain in this fashion, as the Riders of Doom descend upon Conan's village out of the blue.

** John Milieus has stated that he always wanted to make a Viking movie. Given the Viking imagery all over this film, it is safe to say that he was making a Viking film first and a Conan film second.

The film put [[FriedrichNietzsche Nietzschean philosophy]] together with an epic tale of revenge. While it wasn't very accurate to the original Creator/RobertEHoward [[PulpFiction pulp]] stories, hewing more to [[BroadStrokes Stone's ideas]] filtered through [[CrackPairing Milius' direction]], it has become a CultClassic. [[StarMakingRole It helped propel Schwarzenegger to mega-stardom]].

* HarsherInHindsight: The scene at the end in which Thulsa Doom is ordering a mass suicide. The film was made shortly after Jim Jones' cult in Guyana did the very same thing. Director John Milius has publicly stated that the scene was based on the events of Jonestown. Jim Jones, James Earl Jones. Coincidence? Probably not.
