* CurbStompBattle: In his bid to become the new Emperor, the Chamberlain accepts the challenge declared by the General. He picks the Trial by Stone, a clear trial of strength, despite [[WhatAnIdiot having the strongest, most aggressive and least withered of his fellow Skeksis as his opponent]]. [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority It goes exactly as you would expect]].

There is a spin-off OELManga prequel (''Legends of the Dark Crystal'') by Creator/{{Tokyopop}} and a graphic novel prequel trilogy (''The Dark Crystal: Creation Myths'') by Creator/ArchaiaEntertainment. A series of Young Adult novels also exists, published by Random House. A sequel titled ''Power of the Dark Crystal'' got stuck in DevelopmentHell for years (to the point that ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' did a skit on the matter) and was officially cancelled. The unproduced script however is to be turned into a 12 issue comic book series from Archaia in 2017.

* GeniusLoci: In a curious subversion, Aughra is. She's the planet Thra's attempts to understand it, the solar system it resides in, and all the living creatures who dwell upon it.

* OhCrap: The Skeksis concentrate their efforts [[spoiler: on killing Kira]], but forget about Jen. They start screaming their heads off, when in Jen's incurred anger and despair he's about to heal the crystal, and there's nothing the tyrants can do about it.

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: It's very difficult for a planet to find a stable orbit around a trinary star system. Even so, if we accept the premise, poor Thra would be roasted by the combined luminosity and proximity of the three Suns, and life would not be able to survive.

* GoodProstheticEvilProsthetic: [=UrTih=] the Alchemist and his skeksis counterpart [=SkekTek=] the Scientist both possess prosthetic arms and legs. [=UrTih=] wields a right arm and leg carved from wood, while [=SkekTek=] had robotic prosthetics. [[spoiler:Because the two were once a single entity, they both probably lost their limbs [[{{Synchronization}} at the same time]]. What's even more disturbing, it is mentioned that [=SkekTek=] ''did it too himself'' out of mix of scientific curiosity and sadomasochism, with [=UrTih=] just sitting their taking it [[FridgeHorror as his limbs fell off bleeding without rhyme or reason]].]]

** Jen himself when the castle is crumbling. He doesn't care about the danger of it coming down on him; he merely sits with Kira's corpse and mourns.
