* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: What Peter does to Ommadon (and would probably do to Cthulhu or any other EldritchAbomination for that matter). He denounces [[OneWingedAngel the wizard's true form]], for nothing so evil or hideous can ever possibly... '''be real'''.

* OurGhostsAreDifferent: [[spoiler: What Peter sadly ends up becoming to the world/realm of magic. To utterly destroy [[BigBad Ommadon]], he must forsake and deny all magic. Yet somehow, he is able to interact with them, to Carolinus' amazement. Indicating part of Peter, even though he favors reality and logic, [[BitterSweetEnding will always love and cherish his memories of magic and of dragons]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* CessationOfExistence: [[spoiler: What Ommadon idiotically [[NiceJobFixingItVillain accomplishes in the ending]]. He ''refuses'' to relinquish the world to mankind and yield to science and logic. He finds out the hard way, all his curses, hexes and evil is ''nothing'' compared to the might of science harassed for the good of all mankind.]]


Added DiffLines:

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Or rather, evil cannot comprehend ''science welded for good''. Ommadon gets his ass royally handed to him when he and Peter confront each other in the final showdown.

* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Out of the major characters, Smrgol, Bryagh, and Ommadon end up biting the dust. Almost ''all'' the heroes taste death at one point or another, but they're revived at the end of the movie.]]

'''''The Flight of Dragons''''' is a Creator/RankinBassProductions animated film, produced in 1982, but not aired until 1986. It is loosely adapted from Creator/GordonRDickson's fantasy novel ''[[Literature/TheDragonKnight The Dragon and the George]]''. However, it replaces the main character with Creator/PeterDickinson, the real life author who wrote ''[[Literature/TheFlightOfDragons The Flight of Dragons]]'', an art book that proposes scientific reasons for the [[HereThereWereDragons prior existence of dragons]]. Got all that?

** The film skirts dangerously close to NuclearWeaponsTaboo territory. Ommadon's plan he unashamedly announces is to have [[KillAllHumans mankind utterly destroy itself through a nuclear war]]. His brothers look on at his vision, [[ThisIsUnforgivable and are horrified]].

* PreMortemOneLiner: Spoken by Peter in a final attack to a desperate Ommadon, who'd suffered [[ForMassiveDamage massive wounds]] from Peter's using scientific facts to [[YourHeadASplode to destroy the dragon heads]] Ommadon was using.

* AsYouKnow: When Peter first wakes up sharing Gorbash's body and Melisande calls him "brother," he gets embarrassed and reminds her that they kissed. The kiss did [[strike: not take place onscreen]] take place, right before Bryagh knocked Melisande to the ground and grabbed Peter.

* [[DaddysGirl Daddy's Girl]]: Melisande to Carolinus. It doesn't really become evident until she's in her weird coma, at which point he calls her "my darling, darling child" and weeps copiously. Possibly the most genuinely moving scene in the whole film.
