* BoxOfficeBomb: And an expensive one at that, barely returning half of its over $40 million budget; it remains one of Disney's poorest-performing theatrical releases.

* DisownedAdaptation: The author of the original novels, Creator/LloydAlexander, didn't really consider the movie an adaptation. Surprisingly, he actually ''liked'' the film anyway.

* StillbornFranchise: Disney actually had the rights to the entire book series. When the movie imploded, plans for any sequels and any more adaptations of the books by Hollywood were sunk for 30 years; Disney reobtained the rights and began plans to try the series again in 2016.

* GenreTurningPoint: The film was meant to be this for animated Disney movies in general, an attempt to darken and "modernize" the studios feature film output while also proving that Walt Disney's one-vision method of film making was still viable in the 1980s. And it ''was'' a turning point... just not in the way that the film makers had hoped; its massive box office failure not only led to a trend of lighter Disney animated films (which culminated with their "true" turning point in 1989, ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''), but also ended (most of) Walt Disney's methods as solid company policy in favor of a more "Hollywood" style of movie making (stricter deadlines, tighter budgets, more committee meetings, more executive influence, attempts on franchise integration, etc.).
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The Horned King has plenty of attention in Japan. This may have had to do with the extinct attraction in Tokyo Disneyland. Shall we begin?
** Mickey Mouse on the GameBoy in 1989 has him as the final boss.
** Mickey Mouse II on the same system two years later again has him as the final boss.
*** Both of these games replaced him with Witch Hazel when they were converted to the Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle games.
** Mickey Mouse III: Dream Balloon in 1992 again puts him as the final boss, only to be replaced by Night Mayor when it was converted to ''Kid Klown in Night Mayor World''.
** Finally appeared without alterations in Land of Illusion on the UsefulNotes/GameGear and UsefulNotes/SegaMasterSystem in 1993, although this time colored from older concept art and given the name of "The Phantom." And this was the only time that he appeared in North America and Europe in a Japanese produced game.

** Luckily this has been ultimately averted, as Disney is now planning on [[http://variety.com/2016/film/news/chronicles-of-prydain-movie-disney-1201733058/ a live-action adaptation of the original books]]. It may bot be The Black Cauldron as a reboot, but it has the potential to be even better.

** The cuts were made to keep it from getting the R rating because the PG-13 rating hadn't been invented yet. Imagine if the cuts weren't made (some of the footage Katzenberg had cut actually made it to the film's trailer on early copies of the 1985 WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyClassics VHS of ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}''; that tape would be the only way to see anything from this film until 1998).

** Because this movie was both atypical and unpopular, the film was never released on home video until 1998, as one of the last installments in the WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyMasterpieceCollection.

** Because this movie was both atypical and unpopular, Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo didn't make it available to own in North America until 1998, as one of the last installments in the WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyMasterpieceCollection. Even later, ''The Black Cauldron'' would become the Canon's last traditionally-animated movie, aside from some 1940s package films, to receive a Blu-ray release. %%DO NOT list a Blu-Ray release date, even a rumored one, unless Disney actually confirms it!
