* {{Woolseyism}}: When Bobby questions the [[WiseTree Know Tree]], the Brazilian dub replaces a reference to an American sporting event with a reference to a comparable Brazilian event. (In both cases it goes on to say the correct answer, preceded by "However, if you mean <competition name> in ''your world...''")
-->'''US original:'''
--->'''Bobby:''' OK, who won the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1981_World_Series '81]] [[{{UsefulNotes/Baseball}} World Series?]]
--->'''Know Tree:''' Simple, the Grey Wood Elves.
-->'''Brazilian dub:'''
--->'''Bobby:''' All right, who won the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1984_Campeonato_Brasileiro_S%C3%A9rie_A '84]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campeonato_Brasileiro_S%C3%A9rie_A Golden Cup?]]
--->'''Know Tree:''' Easy, the Grey Forest Elves.

** CreatorsPet[=/=]JerkSue: Another big reason for their hate among the player base. Kender are depicted in the sourcebook as not just a good race but ''the'' good race; they are presented as curious, playful ''[[CuteCrittersActChildlike children]]'' with [[WouldHurtAChild all the associated moral compunctions to those who harm or wrong them]]. It's said that only the AlwaysChaoticEvil races hate the Kender while the wisest among the good races see them as the pinnacle of the world's innocence, and that "the world would lose something precious if the kender were ever to leave it". This is the given description for a race of people who casually rifle through other people's pockets, bags and homes out of boredom ([[TooDumbToLive often sabotaging their own allies by "borrowing" equipment they need to operate effectively]]) and [[{{Hypocrite}} then getting offended and upset when people accuse them of being thieves]]. Kender are also known for their ConsummateLiar tendencies. Yet the books are adamant that this behaviour is supposed to be ''endearing''.

* RootingForTheEmpire: The villains are ''way'' more entertaining than the heroes, and nothing speaks this trope more than having TheDragon [[spoiler: kill TheScrappy]]. WebVideo/TheDistressedWatcher compared that scene to as if Darth Maul had killed Jar Jar in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace''.

* SoBadItsGood: Much of the movie is hilarious in its cheesiness, hamminess and dated effects (and genuinely hilarious on rare occasions), unless you're a {{serious|Business}} D&D fan, in which case it's like being eaten feet first by rats.

** As far as races go, the [[MechanicalLifeforms Warforged]] from ''{{Eberron}}'' were '''very''' well received. The [[BeastMan Shifters]] were also well-liked, but not as much as the Warforged.\\

** The Flumphs. Originally despised as [[JokeCharacters flatulent jellyfish]] that [[AdventureFriendlyWorld aren't powerful enough to make a good fight]], or evil ''for'' the characters to want to fight, they've since become a popular representitive for some of 1st edition's more whimsical and charming elements. Many gamers were happy when they brought them back in 5th edition, and given a write-up to make them fun adventuring props.

** It may have something to do with the [[DueToTheDead perceived violation of a person's remains]], or setting-depending, ''[[CameBackWrong all]]'' undead are explicitly malevolent creatures that will seek out and kill any living thing they find if the appropriate binding magics are not regularly applied.
