* MonsterIsAMommy: The dragon has a clutch of hatchlings, which are just as vile as the serpent that spawned them, and are accordingly slaughtered by the hero. And then It's Personal.

The movie features a sorcerer's apprentice named Galen Bradwarden (Creator/PeterMcNicol), who studied under an old wizard named Ulrich (Ralph Richardson). One day, they are visited by a group of farmers from a distant kingdom named Urland, led by a young man named Valerian. He explains that their land is threatened by a dragon, Vermithrax Pejorative, and that twice each year they feed it a virgin, chosen by a lottery, to keep it from destroying the kingdom. Ulrich agrees to help, but the farmers have been followed by Tyrian, the king's knight. The king of Urland, Casiodorus Rex, is anxious to avoid stirring up the dragon, and Tyrian demands a test of the sorcerer's magic. Ulrich fearlessly allows Tyrian to stab him to death, using his magic to prevent Galen from interfering.

* GenreSavvy: As a deconstruction, several characters seem to know how things are ''supposed'' to go in these kind of stories.
** When Galen first lays eyes on Vermithrax, he has a bit of an OhCrap moment. When she starts inhaling, however, he quickly gets over it and moves behind his shield, knowing damn well what's coming.
** Tyrian seems to be waiting around at the sacrifice site just because he knows Galen will try to stop it.
** [[spoiler:Valerian]] seems to think she will be the next sacrifice after a new lottery is announced.

* NotSoDifferent: Examining one of Vermithrax's scale, he notes that she's very old, and that she's probably in constant pain, obviously empathizing with her.



* OhCrap: Galen's reaction when laying eyes on Vermithrax for the first time. Then she starts inhaling...

* YourMindMakesItReal: Magic. The Latin basically serves as a foci for the mage's will.

* YourMindMakesItReal: Magic. The Latin basically serves as a foci for the mage's will. Ulrich even critiques Galen's Latin [[spoiler: after being resurrected]] by saying he could have used a simpler phrase instead of a long, flowery one.

Added DiffLines:

* MotionBlur: This was one of the first films to use "Go-Motion", a variation on StopMotion in which the model is mechanized so it could move while being shot, creating realistic blurring to make the effects more believable.

* AgentScully: Tyrian refuses to believe Ulrich is a real wizard without a test. His rant when told "we don't do tests" suggests he has encountered many fakes in the past, to the point that he is exhausingly familiar with their excuses.
