* There's been an animated adaptation of ''Red Nails'' starring Creator/RonPerlman and MarkHamill in the works for some time, but it seems to be stuck in DevelopmentHell.

Conan is strong and courageous. He is not an [[DumbMuscle idiot]], but neither is he of a scholastic disposition -- he is mostly practical and naturally cunning, though through extensive experience he is also knowledgeable, able to speak, read and write a dozen languages, and even puzzle out ancient scripts in one story. He is a defining example of the type of barbarian who has the principles of a snake.

snake. He has strong moral principles, which he does not break, but they are not extensive. He keeps his promises. He does not desert his friends, his allies, or those under his protection. He is unfailingly chivalrous towards women.

[[ComicBook/ConanTheBarbarian The character has had a long history in comics]] over the decades. At first handled by MarvelComics, the license has since been acquired by Creator/DarkHorseComics. The Dark Horse series is the most faithful of all adaptations to date and is endorsed by the Robert E. Howard Foundation. It started out with Kurt Busiek on script and Cary Nord on pencils. It's currently written by Timothy Truman and drawn by Tomas Giorello.

Conan reflects Howard's [[AuthorAppeal preferences]] and [[ValuesDissonance prejudices]]; non-Hyborian (white) people are usually untrustworthy, foolish or villains. And snakes... Howard must have been [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes scared of snakes]] - huge [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent "loathsome serpents"]] turn up [[ScaledUp continually]], although this could also have to do with his friendship with Creator/HPLovecraft. The original Conan stories are actually a [[CanonWelding peripheral part]] of the CthulhuMythos.

* CthulhuMythos: The Howard version is connected loosely to that mythos. But while Lovecraft's heroes tended to insist that 'this can't possibly be happening' right up until it happens in a very final sense, Conan tended to know when the situation [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu could be resolved with swift violence]] and when it was time to [[RunOrDie get the hell out]] - as it was in "Pool of the Black One" and "Shadows in the Moonlight."

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: For one thing, in the original Howard stories, just about every woman he gets involved with only shows up in that one tale and is then never heard from again without their fates ever being as much as alluded to.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: For one thing, Aside from Conan, in the Howard's original Howard stories, just about every woman he gets involved with stories most characters and {{MacGuffin}}s only shows up ever appear in that one a single tale and is are then never heard from mentioned again without their fates ever being as much as alluded to.even if they do survive the experience. This naturally leaves the question of what happened to them afterwards wide open.

* MagicIsEvil: Mostly. Even Pelias in ''TheScarletCitadel,'' while using his arts to Conan's benefit, managed to creep him out so badly that Conan felt no [[FireForgedFriends friendship]] for him afterward - a circumstance so odd that Conan muses on it. In ''Hour of the Dragon'' the priests of Asura and the witch woman Conan meets in the hills are at least neutral. The spirit of Epimetreus is the only absolutely clear example of white magic... although it can be inferred that the offscreen priest of Ibis in "The God in the Bowl" is a good guy. In the film the Wizard of the Mounds brings Conan back from the edge of death, but the process is all but stated to be a DealWithTheDevil that costs Valeria her life.
