* MostAnnoyingSound: The witch's deranged laughter is HellIsThatNoise incarnate at first, but quickly becomes this when she does it constantly in her scene.

*** Heck, the comparisons to The Lord of the Rings don't end there. After all, the story happens to be about a boy from the countryside guided by his elderly mentor to go on a quest to destroy a magical artifact that would kill the evil overlord ruling over the land. You draw your own conclusions from here.

** For some folks, Taran qualifies as one. Most people find his bragging annoying, and they do not like either how he patronizes Eilonwy in a very sexist demeanor ("What does a girl know about swords, anyway!?").

* SoOkayItsAverage: The wider consensus of the film, which agrees that while it's far from the worst animated movie and actually has a few good points, its story and characters are thoroughly underwhelming with few of the traditional Disney elements to compensate for it.

* BrokenBase: The movie as a whole. Either it's one of Disney's most unique underrated classics, with an enchanting world, likable characters, and a genre Disney hasn't tackled much (high dark fantasy/medieval fantasy ala Lord of the Rings - the closest we have to that is Sleeping Beauty); or it's one of the most generic, cliched movies that tries to be something ambitious but mostly comes off as a poor rip-off, and barely stands out compared to the other fantasy films of the 80s (Labyrinth, The Never-ending Story, The Last Unicorn...).

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The Horned King. Even if the movie failed at the box office and is one of the lesser known Disney feature films, The Horned King is a cult favorite within the Disney fandom and many times is compared with the likes of Maleficent and Chernabog. He probably would've had a respectable presence in Disney properties if it hadn't been for the movie's poor initial reception. Fans have even demanded Disney to let the Horned King to make an appearance in future ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' games. Being played by Creator/JohnHurt probably has quite a bit to do with it.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Who else is disappointed Taran, had to give up the awesome magical sword midway through, instead of maybe, using it on The Horned King?

* VindicatedByHistory: It's noticeably darker tone, new animation format, ExecutiveMeddling and a lot of bad luck made 1985 viewers see the film as a train wreck; modern viewers can appreciate it more.

** "I know! Let's make a movie about an evil cauldron that raises invincible undead armies, and can only be stopped by somebody committing suicide inside it! Do you think we'll have any trouble getting a G rating?"

** Most of the violence and death in the movie (both what was allowed to be shown and what Katzenberg left on the cutting room floor) these days wouldn't be out of place on CartoonNetwork's ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''.
