* AdaptationalModesty: When the game was made into a Saturday morning cartoon, of course Daphne couldn't wear that barely-there outfit she does in the game. Lampshaded in the comic miniseries where it's revealed the glass bubble she's in actually turns maidens kept inside it into airheaded bimbos who think nothing of parading themselves like that.

The game (along with its sci-fi counterpart ''VideoGame/SpaceAce'', as well as the sequel) was well-known for dozens of death scenes, all of which were unique to a given scenario. The cartoon included a variation by offering Dirk a choice of actions before each commercial, and showing what would have happened to him if he had made the wrong one in the next scene.

* TakeAThirdOption: In the Saturday morning cartoon version before cutting to commercial the narrator would ask the viewer what they'd do to get Dirk and his friends out of the problem they were facing, then show the various outcomes before showing what he actually did to get out of the mess. Invariably it was a possibility the narrator hadn't actually mentioned.

It should be noted that ''Dragon's Lair'' was not the first laserdisc game ever made (that honor belongs to a UsefulNotes/HorseRacing game called ''Quarter-Horse''), but it ''was'' the one that started it all. It was also the first ever video game to (initially) cost 50 cents (i.e., two quarters) to play.[[note]]Not the first ''arcade'' game, however -- that honor goes to Creator/{{Stern}}'s ''Pinball/BlackHole'' pinball from 1981.[[/note]]

* PublicDomainSoundtrack: The soundtrack that plays entirely in the background of Level 5 while you avoid getting eaten by a fire-breathing cat is the first part of Creator/LudwigVanBeethoven's Symphony No. 5 in C minor (Allegro con brio). This also counts as a GeniusBonus when you notice that the symphony number is the same as the level number.
