%%* EmpathicEnvironment* EmpathicShapeshifter: The Baron's age depends on how he feels.
-->'''Sally:''' You look different, younger.\\
'''Baron Munchausen:''' ''(brightly)'' I always feel rejuvenated by a touch of adventure. For heaven's sake, don't you get any younger or I'll have to find a wet nurse.

* GravityIsAHarshMistress: "Gravitational Cognizance" variant. The Baron, Sally, and Berthold are climbing down a rope from the moon to the earth. They find that the rope is too short and will leave them far too high above the earth; but the Baron produces more rope and instructs Berthold to tie it to the end so they can continue climbing down. And where did the additional rope come from? ''The Baron cut it from the top of the rope on which they were already climbing.'' They don't start to fall until Sally thinks about that for a bit.

* CoversAlwaysLie: The DVD cover includes Venus' face alongside Berthold's and the Baron's, and it lists UmaThurman as one of the three main stars. In fact, Venus is a OneSceneWonder with very little impact on the plot--even if UmaThurman is the biggest name in the cast other than Creator/RobinWilliams (who appears uncredited), especially for American audiences.
