* DeathPlanet: The Planet Mir, has Middle Ages level of Civilization in a few Island Kingdoms. But everywhere else is filled with vicious pirates and bizarre beasts, with occasional savage tribesmen or fiendish swindlers to boot. And, large areas of the planet are getting eaten away by a substance of pure evil called Dark Water.

* PiratesWhoDontDoAnything : both the ''Wraith'' and the ''Maelstrom'' just hunt the 13 treasures all the time. The Maelstrom's crew might be composed of slaves (and Bloth is seen to have no concern as to what his crew eats, for example), and the Wraith's crew always complains of having no money, but it's still strange that they manage to keep it up at all.

* TheOtherDarrin: In the pilot mini-series, Niddler was voiced by [=Roddy McDowall=] and spoke perfectly clear English. When the show switched to syndication however, Creator/FrankWelker took over the part and Niddler started to speak with [[SpeechImpairedAnimal a squawking voice with bird screech accents]].

* AesopAmnesia: Of a sort. In "The Dark Disciples" Ren needs Jenna to tell explain very forcefully that by "the key" to the chamber where the treasures are meant to be placed she means his sword. Somewhat strange because he'd used his sword as a key to open the room where the treasure on Andorus was hidden without anyone telling him to.

** "A Drop Of Darkness"- Bloth won't kill Ren until after he's performed Ren's supposed wedding (albeit, the woman who arranged this promised Bloth the compass and treasures in exchange for this).
** "The Game"- Bloth helps Ren defeat the Korb monsters hunting them after they are no longer chained together as payback for Ren not abandoning him when he had the chance to earlier in the episode (and just after said chains had been broken).
** "The Dark Dweller"- Bloth captures Ren just after the latter has lost Tula to the dark water and is in the midst of a HeroicBSOD. Does he throw him to the Constrictus? [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim Heck no!]] [[spoiler: Instead he keeps Ren around as a ship slave because he "would rather watch Ren die a thousand deaths by guilt..."]]
*** Also in the same episode, when Bloth forces Ioz to battle one his pirates, he decides to "be a fair man" and tosses him a sword. All Ioz has to do is get past the pirate to reach it... who has four arms and a weapon in each hand.

* FantasticRacism: Monkeybirds were used and the first miniarc even went so far as to show the slavemarkets. While it was swept under the rug later on Niddler does mention on occasion that he can't enter certain pubs because monkeybirds aren't allowed there and characters in general seem to consider Niddler a lesser being even before he has a chance to prove himself as the SmallAnnoyingCreature.
* FemaleMisogynist: The female warriors in "The Living Treasure" appears to hate outsider women as equally as men in general. A woman is one of the slaves. Granted they (or at least their queen) will welcome a female outsider who openly voices her hatred for men.

*** Unusual because Ren (despite being the fighter) is quick, agile and tricky rather than particularly strong, while Ioz seems to be the physical powerhouse (and is the MightyGlacier in the video game). Also Tula has her thief-ly moments as well, and was trained as a warrior (though this doesn't really come up much after the miniseries and in the AmazonLand episode).

* FreakyFridayFlip: Bloth switches bodies with Ren (and Konk with Niddler) thanks to a powder by Morpho, it has to be noted however that their voices stay the same so the audience has Ren bellowing ''Curse my eyes!'' through the entire episode.

* MythArc: The quest to find the thirteen treasures stop the Dark Water from spreading across the world. Notable as one of the first kid shows to actually have an over-arching plot. Sadly the show was TooGoodToLast and it got cut short with only eight of the treasures found.
