* TakeOurWordForIt: The Sandmurks' screeches are so horrible that they will drive any listener mad. The audience only hears a mild chittering sound.

* PlotTailoredToTheParty: Each member of the group overcomes exactly one obstacle. Also, the shield and flute provided to the party by Solarius and Lo Tae Shao each fulfill exactly one function. (Well, the shield fulfills two if you count Peter selling it to the pawn shop guy at the end.) Between this, the Rule of Three entry (a magical quest can't begin without three members), and the beginning of the quest being dictated by Antiquity (itself a vague, intelligent force), it can be inferred that the world of magic is ''supposed'' to run like this.

It's basically an excuse for Melisande to have something to do and prevent Caolinus from talking to himself when providing exposition.



* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Dragon biology is discussed rather in-depth, including their need to eat limestone to generate hydrogen gas, which enables them to fly and breathe fire, as well as their use of soft metal for bedding, as it will not catch fire. This is actually in reference to the book ''The Flight of Dragons'' by Peter Dickinson. In it the author hypothesizes that dragons evolved from dinosaurs, survived extinction by pure luck, and evolved to fly and breathe fire using the aforementioned gas.

* EatDirtCheap: As Smrgl shows Peter, dragons eat limestone and will swallow gemstones to help digest them, much like birds eat grit to grind their food. Said limestone produces the gasses necessary for them to fly and breathe fire.

** 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]].
