[[IThoughtItMeant Not to be]] [[SimilarlyNamedWorks confused with]] Creator/{{Falcom}}'s ''VideoGame/DragonSlayer'' games. Or with Creator/DonBluth's classic video game ''DragonsLair'' (which used the exact some font as the film, and is a homonym to boot.) Or with ''Literature/TheLastDragonslayer''.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: One of the reasons the movie bombed in theaters was that people were expecting a kids-friendly Disney movie... only to find out there was blood, murder, scary dragons, a ton of {{Squick}}, and partial nudity. Even with a PG rating at the time. The ratings system didn't have a PG-13 movie yet in place (this was one of the many films that pushed its creation) and it wasn't mature enough to qualify for the R rating.

* WrongGenreSavvy: Valerian clearly thinks [[spoiler: she'll be the name called for the lottery after she drops the pretense of being a boy.]] Except that this is a {{deconstruction}} and subversion of the sword and sorcery trope so it doesn't happen. Also, the priest who tried to exorcise Vermithrax thinking that the dragon is a demon and would be banished back to hell. Except that, while supernatural, Vermithrax is clearly flesh and blood not a spirit.

* FeelingTheirAge: The sorcerer Ulrich realizes he is too old even to make the journey to Urland, let alone hope to defeat a dragon. [[spoiler: So he gets himself killed so he can make the journey as a bag of ashes, and then be magically reanimated just long enough to slay the dragon]]
