* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Vermithrax used a new "Go Motion" stop-motion technique, which added a blur to the animation that removed the jerky aspect most stop animation had til then.

* MisaimedFandom: Skeptics and atheists like using Tyrian's "They never do tests" speech, which out of context does make him sound like a noble rational soul crusading against superstition.

Two more things that don't help are the film's anti-Christian overtones and Tyrian's later proven wrong when [[spoiler: Galen kills him with an enchanted spear, thus preventing him from living to see Ulrich's return]].

* VindicatedByCable: Not a box-office hit on its release (mostly due to it being Disney's darkest and edgiest film ever, though being released two weeks after ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' certainly didn't help), the film still became popular with fantasy buffs for its impressive sfx, deconstructive tropes, and effective acting.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: One of the reasons the movie bombed in theaters was that people were expecting a kids-friendly Disney movie... only to find out there was blood, murder, scary dragons, a ton of {{Squick}}, and partial nudity. Even with a PG rating at the time. The ratings system didn't have a PG-13 movie yet in place (this was one of the many films that pushed its creation) and it wasn't mature enough to qualify for the R rating.

** Tyrian's "They never do tests" speech makes him sound like a jerk, but as Valerian just got done saying, all the other true wizards are dead. Tyrian's probably encountered a few charlatans in his day, so his skepticism about Ulrich is actually pretty justified. Though the legitimacy of Tyrian's skepticism falls flat when one remembers that Tyrian acknowledges the existence of Vermithrax while knowing that dragons are supernatural creatures. He also knew that Galen used magic to cause the landslide that buried Vermithrax's cave, but doesn't change his view on magic or wizards accordingly afterwards.

Alternatively it might just make him ''more'' suspicious of an alleged wizard being so cagey about providing evidence, since he knows real magic is easily proven.

* UnfortunateImplications: Some have accused Dragonslayer of having anti-Christian overtones, as the movie portrays Christianity and Christian characters quite negatively, compounded by the fact that paganism (a belief system the Bible condemns) and the pagan main characters (Galen and Ulrich) are portrayed very positively.
