* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: It isn't really clear if this is subverted (since the Tugar attack anyways), or if the plan was just to waste the Tugars' time since we never find out what was in the plan and what wasn't. The plan was bascially for Ilya to buy time for the prince to gather more warriors for the battle. So the idea was to drop random treasure around, Khan bought it and as Ilya expected the wariors kept it for themselves. Ilya points this out and out of fear Khan's army drops all of their own money as well as what was found. Though Ilya probably wouldn't have wept too much if Khan had honor and actually turned away when Ilya revealed himself to be no ordinary ambassador.

* OrcusOnHisThrone: The Tugars apparently spent several years just hanging out in their camp while Ilya was in prison, since he gets let out the first time they become a threat again.

''Ilya Muromets'' is a fantasy movie based upon the [[RussianMythologyAndTales epic poems]] about a Russian epic hero. Released in 1956, the movie was a literal epic for the Russian film industry, with [[MillionMookMarch tens of thousands of extras and thousands of horses]] used in some of the battle scenes. Then Creator/RogerCorman got his hands on the movie for a release in the early 1960s. While little was generally changed, the "epic" feel of the original is felt to have been lost rather tragically in the conversion. The movie is also known as ''The Sword and the Dragon'' in America, while ''The Epic Hero and the Beast'' is the UK name. Both are drastically changed versions when compared to the original, of course. A copy of the full version with English subtitles can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hooaKxdXbfM here.]]

** In the original, he specifically asks her to bear '''him''' a son.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Ilya's fellow knight Alyosha (Alexei in the dub) is played by Sergei Stolyarov, who played the title role in ''Film/{{Sadko}}'' (AKA ''The Magical Voyage of Sinbad'').
* HeyItsThatVoice: Mike Wallace of ''Series/SixtyMinutes'' did the narration, as strange as that sounds. And who can forget Paul Frees as Boris Badinov, a.k.a. [[RockyAndBullwinkle Tugar emperor Kalin]]?
