Adult Fear is about things that could plausibly happen in one's day-to-day adult life, not just about children in danger. If it depends on the supernatural elements of the story to work, it's not the trope.
* AdultFear: Oh boooooy. We have Hank [[spoiler: being forced to betray his friends to keep a kidnapped Bobby alive]], the Nightwalker kidnapping children from Earth via portals, Varla's parents being unable to keep their BarrierMaiden daughter safe from Venger... ** It gets even worse in "City on the Edge of Midnight". The episode opens in our world, with a young boy screaming for help as he is dragged off by an unseen force, only for his father to come rushing in just in time to see his son sucked under the bad. Dad flips the bed over, and there's nothing but bare floor underneat, and we see the cops pull up outside. Drifts into FridgeHorror when you imagine Dad trying to explain what happened to his son to the police.

This cartoon has the distinction of being one of the few Creator/{{Hasbro}}-related cartoons not owned by Hasbro. Instead, the cartoon is the property of Creator/{{Disney}}, who acquired the cartoon along with the majority of Marvel Productions' cartoons. This could be because Hasbro had no ownership of ''Dungeons and Dragons'' at the time of production (they were still with TSR, Inc. prior to that company's sale to Creator/WizardsOfTheCoast, a Hasbro subsidiary). This may partly explain why the cartoon hasn't been acknowledged as much in Hasbro Studios history compared to [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers other]] [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero cartoons]] [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends from Hasbro]].

'''''Dungeons & Dragons''''' (often referred to by fans as the "D&DC"[[note]]C is for cartoon[[/note]] in order to distinguish it from the game) was an animated television series based on [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons the role-playing game]]. The show was produced by [[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel Productions]] and broadcast from 1983 to 1985. The premise had six friends (Hank, Diana, Eric, Presto, Sheila and Bobby) take a ride in an amusement park and suddenly find themselves in a HeroicFantasy setting simply called The Realm. They are instantly garbed in clothes fitting their character classes and quickly gain a companion in [[TeamPet a unicorn foal named Uni]]. A MysteriousBenefactor, known only as Dungeon Master, gives each of them a magic weapon to help them survive in that world and promises to help them find a way home.

A little shuffling and a little less first-personing.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Dungeon Master is known only by his title and, likewise, he almost always addresses the kids by their titles. (Venger does the same, but his relationship with the kids is hardly a first-name one.)

(Venger (Sheila is the exception; the Dungeon Master refers to her as "child" rather than by her title, presumably due to said title being "thief".) Venger does the same, but his relationship with the kids is hardly a first-name one.)

** After a recent marathon, I could find no instance where DM calls Sheila by her class of Thief, save for the opening. He usually addresses her as "Child".

** The Ultimate Evil in "Dungeon At The Heart Of Dawn" scares '''everybody'''. Even the normally-unflappable Dungeon Master.

** In "Cave of the Fairy Dragons", when confronted with giant ants, Bobby yells out, "It's {{Them}}." The ant noises even sound like those from the classic film.

** Seeing that Venger serves a BiggerBad that nearly killed Dungeon Master effortlessly, it may be that he is forbidden from interfering directly, lest Venger's boss decide to take a much more active role in subjugating The Realm.

* BiggerBad: In one episode we find out about Venger's boss, [[YouKnowTheOne The Nameless One]], a being so powerful and evil he destroys entire worlds. The kids only survive because he got bored and left to destroy some other world while they were taking refuge in the Underworld. * [[BlindWithoutEm Blind Without 'Em]]: That is Presto the Magician's major physical problem.
