* The Cape: Rod Rescueman is still young, naive and is as much a DumbJock as he is TheHero, but his heart is in the right place. With some tempering, he definitely has the potential.

* CoolOldGuy: Greensleeves. He's very crusty (he notes that his Fig workers never sing nor fart), but he's unequivocally a good guy.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Fanfare}}: A brief one plays every time Rod Rescueman enters a scene. Lampshaded when FGM hears it over the phone:
--> '''Fairy God Mother:''' I sense he's arrived.


Added DiffLines:

* FlyingBrick: Rod Rescueman embodies the strong-and-tough version of this trope. Has no other powers that we've seen.

Added DiffLines:

* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: When FGM gets accidentally charcoaled by Rod, her reaction is basically the same "Ow" you'd make from stubbing your toe.

Now Botch launches a master plan: He has Greensleeves and company kidnapped, and then tricks innocent fools Ralph (an "all-purpose animal", so called for his shapeshifting abilities, voiced by Creator/LorenzoMusic) and Mumford (a Creator/Chaplin-esque mime) into stealing the spring of Din's Cosmic Clock for him. They do and this stops time in Din -- at a moment when everyone is awake. Botch will send the vultures there to drop powerful nightmares everywhere, then restart the clock and detonate them, which will trap all the Rushers in ''waking'' nightmares...forever. It's up to Ralph, Mum, Greensleeves's niece/aspiring actress Flora Fauna, inept superhero Rod Rescueman, and a harried Fairy Godmother to put things to rights before it's too late.

''Twice Upon a Time'' is a 1983 mostly-animated comedy-fantasy directed by John Korty and Charles Swenson, and executive produced by Creator/GeorgeLucas. As with several other animated films of the early '80s (''WesternAnimation/TheLastUnicorn'', ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH''), its theatrical distribution was such that it made virtually no impact...and unlike those films it didn't get much video/cable exposure either. The month it debuted on HBO, the pay channel's guide made a full page announcement - and that was the last anyone heard of it until the early 1990s, when it had a brief video release; CartoonNetwork twice showed it as a weekend feature by decade's end. The film finally resurfaced on DVD in 2015 via Warner Archive.

* LifesWorkRuined: After spending the majority of the movie writing it, Scuzzbopper finished his magnum opus, the Great Murkurian Novel. Unfortunately, when he showed it to Botch, he threw it out the window because he needed nightmare scripts instead of novels. This act is what drives Scuzzbopper [[spoiler:to temporary [[DrivenToSuicide attempt suicide]], followed by a HeelFaceTurn]].

* WritersSuck: Scuzzbopper yearns to write "the great Amurkian novel", but Botch does not care. [[spoiler: This sets off Scuzzbopper's HeelFaceTurn.]]

* BigNo: Botch, when all his nightmare bombs go off before time is restarted.



* TookALevelInBadass: Ralph in the climax. [[YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry Upon believing that Mum was blasted by Botch's cannon]], [[ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated not knowing he had taken cover behind a pole]], Ralph finally managed to control his shapeshifting abilities and successfully used them to trick Botch into detonate the nightmare bombs before the Cosmic Clock was restarted.

* DamselInDistress: ''Heavily'' spoofed. Flora gets a job at the Murkworks playing this role in various nightmares, and Rod Rescueman's test for whether he's appropriate for being hired by the Fairy Godmother is rescuing her from her flaming desk. [[spoiler: Flora subverts the trope when Ibor captures her -- Rod ''tries'' to rescue her, but in the end she destroys the robot herself.]]
