* BrokenAesop: The movie presents class equality as good except its primary advocate is an empress who wouldn't be bound by it herself.

* BrokenAesop: The movie presents class equality as good except its primary advocate is an empress who wouldn't be bound by it herself. Furthermore, the Council of Mages alone will form the closest thing to a legislature, i.e. the primary check on a head of state's power, Izmer has, both before and after the [[spoiler:successful]] revolution.



* FashionVictimVillain: Damador's blue lipstick, although it may have been due to a drug problem (the [[FantasticDrug in-setting drug]] Sannish think morphine if it came from dogs instead of poppies dyes the users lips blue).
* FridgeLogic: The Empress attacks with a flock of Golden Dragons, AKA Fire monsters. The wizards counterattack with fireballs and Red Dragons!? So, you're attacking a creature immune to fire with fire!? WTF!?

Added DiffLines:

* SnarkBait: The plot of the movie and Jeremy Irons and TheDragon hamming it up in every scene they appear in guaranteed the movie would become this.

* TierInducedScrappy: It's widely considered to be one of the worst, if not the worst designed class of this edition, due to most of its features being extremely situational.

* NeutralGood: One of the four possible choices for an Incarnate character, can be played as a tank or as a psuedocaster via Use Magic Device. Has the best defenses this side of a Full Caster.

* TierInducedScrappy: While it is a Rogue with psychic powers, the Psychic Rogue is considered better due to not having class features that rely on Psionic Focus. This class is still pretty good, but most people will point you towards the Psychic Rogue.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The Main Suite, which provides both the opening AND the closing of the film, and a portion of the action music during Ridley's soirée through the "maze" in the Thieves' Guild. It is, sadly, the only really good music to come from the film.

** This film also contains Richard O'Brien. This is notable for one very significant reason: he is ''the most understated actor in the whole film''. Think about that for a minute.
*** Actually Tom Baker is. Poor [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor]].
* {{Narm}}: Ridley's BigNo when [[spoiler:Snails is killed]], complete with dropping to his knees and a SkywardScream.

* SoBadItsGood: A lot of the movie is hilarious in its cheesiness, hamminess and dated effects (and genuinely hilarious on rare occasions), unless you're a [[SeriousBusiness serious]] D&D fan, in which case it's like being eaten feet-first by rats.

** Eric is a chronically [[DeadpanSnarker snarking]] [[TheComplainerIsAlways complainer]] who hates all the magic and craziness around him, not least of all because [[ButtMonkey the universe seems to have made him the chosen victim of every type of misfortune possible]], yet becomes quite TheStrategist in the later episodes, stepping up to lead and making the plans when TheLeader is unavailable. And [[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderBitterWork becomes stuck in a crevice up to his shoulders]] at the end of "Citadel of Shadow."

* TierInducedScrappy

* TierInducedScrappy
TierInducedScrappy: Monks need high scores in just about every ability to be effective. They need to stand still to use many of their class abilities with full effectiveness, but get lots of movement powers that emphasize mobility. And most of their powers are weaker than stuff that other people can easily pick up with cheap magic items or low-level spells anyway.



* BrokenBase: The 5e development team released a special Unearthed Arcana revolving entirely around five levels of a completely-rebuilt ranger class. Opinions are divided between those who like the change, those who dislike it, but feel it's a good sign that the developers are listening to their feedback, and those who feel it is firm evidence that the game designers are just ''clueless'' when it comes to the ranger, fixated on mending things that aren't broken while ignoring the class's core problems.




to:

* TierInducedScrappy: Generally seen as the weakest 5th edition class. There are very few things a ranger can do out of combat that other classes can't do, and probably do better. In combat, they rely heavily on a very limited selection of spells, and stack up unfavorably against both fighters and paladins. And the mechanics behind their animal companions ''suck''.



**** When a class is designed around one of the weakest combat mechanics (Dual Wielding is arguably best optimised by sheathing one of the weapons)
