'''''Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God''''' (also known as ''Dungeons & Dragons: The Elemental Might'') is a 2005 made-for-TV live-action movie set in the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' universe. Unlike the ''Film/DungeonsAndDragons'' film released in 2000, ''Wrath of the Dragon God'' is clearly based upon its source material -- to the point at which it often seems as if its characters are simply explaining various aspects of the Player's Handbook to one another.

Added DiffLines:

* InNameOnly: Izmir bears absolutely no resemblance to the one in the first movie, and Damodar might as well be a new character played by the same actor if he hadn't offhandedly mentioned the events of the first movie once. Otherwise there is no connection whatsoever to the first movie. On the other hand, it is much more of an adaptation of the board game than the first one is.

* AnticlimaxBoss: [[invoked]] Both times they fight him, our heroes have no trouble beating Damodar in physical combat. Well he ''is'' a wizard. They beat him in combat both times by being physical, which wouldn't really be a wizard's strength. However, he was a fighter in the previous movie... His loss of that skill makes him quite an anticlimax. He must be a century out of training.

* DarkestHour: Just before [[spoiler:Melora uses her faith to defeat the dragon. Recap: [[GameBreaker Dorian's]] dead, Lux and Nim are incapacitated, Ormaline is incapacitated and has lost an arm, Melora's slowly turning into an evil undead creature from a curse, the king is dead, the captain of the guard is dead, the Head of the Council of Mages was killed and replaced long ago, and the rest of the city guard and remaining council mages are putting up a fruitless fight against the dragon god while he rains destruction upon the land.]]

* EvilIsNotAToy: Subverted/Averted Faluzure seems quite amicable to his releaser. Although since Damodar had released him from thousands of years of imprisonment, you can assume he'd probably be grateful. Plus, Damodar said that he wished to rule over Izmir "As your thrall", meaning that despite freeing him, he still acknowledged Faluzure as his master and better. Faluzure even pauses to set a tithe rate.

Damodar had released him releases Faluzure, but he holds no illusions as to who's the superior in this new relationship, immediately pledging his loyalty and asking to rule over Izmir "As [Faluzure's] thrall." Faluzure, probably grateful at being freed from thousands of years of imprisonment, you can assume he'd probably be grateful. Plus, Damodar said that he wished to rule over Izmir "As your thrall", meaning that despite freeing him, he still acknowledged Faluzure as his master is perfectly fine with this arrangement and better. Faluzure even pauses to set a tithe rate.

* TokenEvilTeammate: Nim, who is officially stated to be ChaoticGood but comes across as ChaoticNeutral ''at best''. His ''introductory scene'' has him nonchalantly tricking a couple of fellow thieves into triggering a trap that roasts them alive, after which Nim steals their stuff.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A scene that was written but never filmed showed how Berek obtained his Vorpal sword (which inexplicably shows up in his possession directly after the Dark Mantle attack), and how Lux lost her own sword. It showed a classic D&D scenario of a treasure in the center of a room over a lethal fall/bottomless pit, where Berek obtains the sword but falls and Lux has to save him. Time and Budget restrictions prevented it from being filmed.

Added DiffLines:

* GeographicFlexibility: The capital city, merely a century after the first film, is completely different. Gone are the mile-tall towers of the mages, as if the city was razed and rebuilt using more conventional fantasy architecture.
