* LostAesop: Most people assume, probably due to the introduction at the beginning of the film, that the moral is ScienceIsBad. According to the commentary, it's actually a statement about propaganda (which both the good guys and bad guys use, but if you're too sympathetic to Avatar's faction's rhetoric of peace you might miss that his team's is subtler). The good guys have no problems using technology (namely, guns) when they have to. Though Avatar does state to the president of Montagar that "Even if we could impress our people with the danger, Science and technology were outlawed millions of years ago." This doesn't mean that ScienceIsBad, just that Avatar's side is at a disadvantage from their own propaganda-fueled rejection of technology.

!!''Wizards'' provides examples of:

* AnAesop: Technology in itself isn't evil, but rather when it's used for evil ends.



* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Blackwolf recovers a newsreel of a Hitler speech and shows it to his army, many of his mooks wear swastika arm bands.
* AnAesop: Technology in itself isn't evil, but rather when it's used for evil ends.



* CigarChomper: While wizards in most works [[DistinguishedGentlemansPipe prefer a more traditional smoking method]], Avatar smokes cigars.



* CombatPragmatist: Rather than wasting time with an argument [[spoiler: or an epic duel, Avatar (who made it clear earlier that he DoesntLikeGuns) simply shoots the BigBad as soon as he gets the opportunity]]. With regards to ''why'', [[spoiler: he says "no matter what happens, I will die anyway" shortly beforehand. He was heartbroken by Elinore's betrayal, and lost faith in his own philosophy. That is, until AFTER the shooting... Anyway, you have to watch the film very carefully]].
* ChivalrousPervert: Given Elinore's [[{{Stripperiffic}} outfit]], it's hardly surprising what Avatar says when she sits down on his bed in front of him, asking what the plan is.
--> '''Avatar''': Oh, why don't you sit there for a couple of hours while I figure it out?
** That being said though, he does have a heart of gold and will never let any harm come to his friends.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: We never find out what becomes of Blackwolf's wife and newborn son. They are shown escaping from Scorch after [[spoiler: she prevents Weehawk from killing Elinore, whom he believes is a traitor]], but are never shown again.

* IncrediblyLamePun: A subtle, slow-burn example. At the end of the movie, Avatar says "I'm glad you changed your last name, you ''son of a bitch''!" If Blackwolf's name is read as two words, his last name is wolf... and female wolves are called bitches.
