* AntiMagic: The Pits are so dark and evil they cancel out Rainbow's powers.



* DragonAscendant: The pilot had a dark, sinister, magical villain simply called "The Evil One". It wasn't established whether he was a demon or simply a SorcerousOverlord, but either way, he had a [[VileVillainLaughableLackey bumbling minion]] named, we kid you not, ''Murky Dismal''. The pilot ended with The Evil One killed, so Murky filled the BigBad slot for the remainder of the series.

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: In the movie, Murky's bumbling attempt to ally with the Dark Princess results in his spaceship crashing through her throne room and distracting her, allowing Rainbow to defeat her.



* WellExcuseMePrincess[=/=]VitriolicBestBuds: While Rainbow Brite isn't a princess, her and Krys' initial relationship bordered on the former trope in TheMovie, with Rainbow as a {{Tsundere}} and Krys as a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. It was more like the latter for the most part until they become TrueCompanions.



* VileVillainLaughableLackey: It's often hard to take Murky Dismal seriously, even if he is Rainbow Brite's nemesis through the series. In the premiere, he was working for an evil sorcerer only known as "The Evil One", and while this setup lasted, Murky and The Evil One had this dynamic. After The Evil One's death and [[DragonAscendant Murky's promotion to Big Bad status]], Murky's idiotic assistant Lurky is even harder to take seriously than Murky, so he ends up creating this dynamic with him

* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Murky has his moments, such as when he captured and tortured Moonglo with light. In the same episode he nearly killed Rainbow by pushing her into a pit.
* NotQuiteDead: One certainly could've thought the Princess was at the end of the movie where her ship hurtles out of control and then violently explodes into dust. Come the series, she shows up intact and just as nasty.

Rainbow Brite started as a greeting card character and was soon licensed by Creator/DicEntertainment for a series of animated adventures. Rainbow Brite, whose real name is Wisp, is a young girl who helps to bring color to the world, accompanied by the seven Color Kids, Twink the sprite, and her horse Starlite.

Rainbow Brite and her allies frequently have to deal with the schemes of Murky Dismal, a short, mustachioed villain who, along with his oafish henchman Lurky, tries to make all of Rainbowland as dark and gloomy as his lair in The Pits.
