This book, and the movie that was based on it, are perfect examples of how TropesAreNotBad. Many tropes, including some of the [[DeadHorseTrope worst tropes around]], are played straight to absurdum, yet both the book and the movie are awesome and gripping - partly due to the simplicity of the story, but mostly because of Lindgren's incredible storytelling.

** When you consider that the pass word is "All power to Tengil, our liberator", just consider what Tengil himself was meant to liberate them from in the first place. Orvar is, of course, another liberator (for honest this time - we believe).

* DawsonCasting: The 13-year-old Jonatan Lionheart is played by Staffan Götestam, who was 25 during the production. However, this might be a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] since the film makers were [[AvertedTrope averting]] the MostWritersAreAdults trope.
** Most likely Jonatan is supposed to be only three or four years older in the movie than he is in the book. Götestam was still a lot older than his character, but his performance is so good that you really don't mind.

* DownerEnding: Not only does [[spoiler:Jonatan get burnt by Katla's poison fire, but Skorpan decides (despite being just fine himself) that he doesn't want to live without his brother and together they both "go to Nangilima", i.e. they [[UnfortunateImplications jump off a cliff to their deaths]].]] And the very last shot in the film version shows the "real world" tombstone of the non-nangijalic Jonatan and Karl Lejon, [[spoiler: implying the DyingDream interpretation of the story]].

* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Discussed, even more in the movie than in the book. RebelLeader Orvar seems to be quite fanatic in his cause, and Jonathan has reason to fear that he would become a new Tengil if he was given the opportunity. Jonathan calls him out on it, resolving to finish Katla himself, not risking Orvar getting his hands on ''any means'' to control Katla.

* BehemothBattle: In the finale, Jonathan vanquishes the dragon Katla by rolling a boulder on her that pushes her into a waterfall. Karm, the 'lindworm' that inhabits the waterfall attacks Katla, and Jonathan and Skorpan watch in awe as the two monsters fight each other to death.
