A major source of NightmareFuel due to the banshee. Possibly also because this is one of, if not the only, times you will ever hear SeanConnery sing on-camera. No, seriously, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTwmjOySDjA see for yourself]]. Reportedly, it was Connery's role in this film that helped him land the part of Film/JamesBond years later in ''Film/DrNo'' after the Bond producers saw the fight between him and Kieron Moore at the end.

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: SeanConnery, as usual. Well, actually there are one or two scenes where he does try to sound Irish but for the most part he talks in his usual Scottish accent. Interestingly enough, Connery's father was actually Irish.

Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: Darby has two, when he sees the Banshee and again when he sees the Death Coach. Even King Brian has one, when he realizes the Death Coach is approaching and knows there's nothing he can do about it.

Added DiffLines:

* FriendlyEnemy: Played with. Darby and King Brian aren't enemies. Darby just wants his wishes and King Brian regards it as a challenge to try and trick him. Basically, it's an ongoing game of trying to one-up each other that they both enjoy. King Brian is very grateful to Darby for keeping their legend alive, looks out for his well-being, and won't hesitate to come to Darby's assistance when the need arises.

* MagicIsEvil: The leprechauns are referred by other characters as "the Powers of Darkness". Subverted it that the leprechauns are just mischievous not malicious.
