* UnholyNuke: Bavmorda wants to use a ritual whose end is to ''wipe the victim out of existence''.

* UnholyNuke: Bavmorda wants to use a ritual whose end is to ''wipe the victim out of existence''. The novelization shows that this is actually completely necessary, as just killing Elora outright wouldn't work, she'd just reincarnate in a new body.

* ChekhovsGun:
** Subverted in the magic acorns; although Willow ''tries'' to use them in several situations, and they work, he is unlucky and misses against everything but the BigBad, who is powerful enough to shake off the effect.
** In a deleted scene known as the "Fish Boy" sequence (which was included in both the {{Novelization}} and Marvel Comics adaptation), Willow successfully used one of the acorns to petrify a shape-shifting lake creature set by Bavmorda to guard the island where Fin Raziel was banished.

Willow is aided by the disillusioned swordsman Madmartigan (Creator/ValKilmer), who has turned to a life of roguery, sorceress Fin Raziel (Patricia Hayes), who has been turned into a possum by Bavmorda, as well as two diminutive brownies Franjean and Rool. They are initially thwarted, but later joined, by the queen's daughter Sorsha (Joanne Whalley). As their journey continues, they face troubles and hardships beyond what any of them had imagined. Through it all, they find love, friendship, and wisdom. In the end we learn that the people we would never suspect are sometimes the bravest of all.
