** The [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome music]] which plays during the scene, the most emotional version of the main theme, doesn't hurt either. And the fact you can see it coming once the true nature of the bond between Dracon and Einon is revealed doesn't lessen the impact; in fact, it only heightens it.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Dennis Quaid's accent varies between regular American and something approaching Irish with mild undertones of Pirate. All the other American actors [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent don't try]].

** While Draco escapes after he and Bowen trick Felton, he manages to swim quickly underwater without creating any sort of wake.

Added DiffLines:

** The scene where Bowen fights the older Einon and the king makes it clear he never believed in the Old Code and was just "vomiting out the words" to gain Bowen's trust in order to learn how to fight. You can see the heartbreak in Bowen to realize this and how the dragon's heart did nothing to corrupt Einon, the boy was always going to be a tyrant. That's followed by Bowen realizing he hunted a species to extinction for no reason and the guilt overwhelming.

* {{Sequelitis}} The sequel is nowhere near as good as the first one.
** The second sequel got mixed review but is mostly seen as better than "A New Beginning".
* SpecialEffectsFailure: While Draco is a well-animated/rendered CG Character, [[ConspicuousCG the lighting on him looks off in the scenes he's in]], but it's not that big a problem.
** The sequel, however, falls under this trope. Especially when you realize that the company hired on for it (not ILM) was also responsible for the X-Ray scene in the original ''Film/TotalRecall1990'', one of the more groundbreaking moments in Visual effects history.
* TearJerker: Very few people who have watched this movie have not burst into tears. Many cry simply at the thought of it. [[spoiler:Not only does Draco - the world's very last surviving dragon - die, but he is killed by his best friend. ''At his own request.'' Only a few scenes earlier, he specifically mentions how he finally has everything he's ever needed]].
** You know a scene is sad when WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick finds it in her cold, black heart to admit to being misty-eyed at it.
