* AlternateContinuity: The TV series is not at all a sequel to the OVA, as it follows up on Parn's campaign as it was told in the manga and the novels, adapting Orson's and Spark's campaigns in greater detail. Specifically, Parn's backstory in the TV series only involved the war against Beld and the campaign against Karla, which played out slightly differently than was shown in the OVA, and the Shooting Star and Kardis resurrection arcs were redone as arcs in the TV series.

* BarbieDollAnatomy: The spirits summoned up by Elven magic and the statuettes on top of the Rod of Domination.



* SceneryCensor: The end credits of the [=OVAs=] feature an image of Deedlit reclining against a dragon in the nude, in a pose that simultaneously makes it quite clear that she isn't wearing anything while blocking any view of her naughty bits.



* WellIntentionedExtremist: Karla the Grey Witch, whose atrocities were part of an effort to "balance power" in the world and keep it from being destroyed by any one faction.

* UnusualEars: Deedlit and Pirotess, whose ears are far longer than what most Western fantasy fans would attribute to elves. The character designer was supposedly inspired by the antennae on ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' robots. It's worth mentioning that this seems to have influenced the appearance of "elf ears" in all Japanese media afterwards and even bled into Western productions like ''WorldOfWarcraft''.

It first began as a series of [[TabletopGames role-playing game sessions]] (first-edition ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', no less), [[AfterActionReport recorded and transcribed]] into a series of novels by Ryo Mizuno. In 1990, it became an animated 13-part {{OVA}} series, and from then on it branched into movies, manga and TV series (some of which were alternate universe versions of the OVA, but which followed the story in the original novels more closely). It even returned to its roots as the most popular Tabletop Role Playing Game in Japan. The ''Lodoss'' RPG was created after Creator/{{TSR}} turned the world down as a ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' supplement.

What is "it"? It is ''Record of Lodoss War'', a sprawling epic which incorporates nearly every Tolkien-esque fantasy cliche in the book, but does so with style. The lovely art and character designs by Yutaka Izubuchi and Nobuteru Yuki make the OVA series a visual feast, in spite of its rather limited animation. The swelling orchestral score by Mitsuo Hagita makes it an aural feast as well.

* VirginSacrifice: In order for the dark priestess Naneel to be reincarnated, it must be done so with the body of one who is of pure blood. The high priestess of Marfa Leyla was the first contender for this position, but after giving birth to a daughter, it was passed on to her. It makes you wonder why the good guys didn't just put Spark and Neese up in the honeymoon suite at one of the inns where they stayed during their quest and let them [[IncrediblyLamePun screw up]] Wagnard's plans for another generation. Garrack and Ryna were both pragmatic enough to come up with that solution, and [[ShipperOnDeck Leaf]] was rooting for them to get together anyway. Aldonova wouldn't have liked it, but he was enough of a naif and a pushover, despite his size and magic, that the others could probably have either distracted him or just told him to shut up and mind his own business.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Orson unknowingly gave this to Shiris when he deconstructed what her "love" for Parn was ''really'' motivated by.
