* CursedWithAwesome: While it's played as very melancholy in the film, the ability to know when you're going to die has major advantages. (See ''Film/BigFish''.)

* CallAPegasusAHippogriff: A glaive is actually a type of single-bladed polearm (and also an obscure name for a sword) not a five-bladed shuriken discus. Though this may actually be a case of TheyJustDidntCare motivated by RuleOfCool, by combining [[ImpossiblyCoolWeapon an awesome weapon]] with the equally cool name of another. And considering the Glaive was "just an old symbol" and Krull was a place of mythical archetypes, there's nothing to say the name couldn't be attached to something different there anyway.

* DealWithTheDevil: The cyclopes, in their backstory. They were once normal humans living on a distant world. They made a deal with the Beast, exchanging one of their eyes for the ability to know the future.

The Widow of the Web's hourglass sands not only can briefly stop time, allowing someone past the spider, but they also [[spoiler:represent the span of her life--and thanks to MindlinkMates, Yynr's too, so that spilling them ends their lives]].

The Beast assumes Colwyn's form, and at least one of his minions can do so as well [[spoiler: by impersonating the Emerald Seer]]. Whether the Changling sent to "make [Colwyn] betray her; if not, kill him" had a similar ability or was somehow assigned the form is not revealed.
