* NightmareFuel: The scene where the Podling is drained. Fortunately, the Crystal being healed reverted all the drained Podlings.
** Flying bats that can see everything you do and adult-sized crab-cockroach hybrids that are remorseless and proven to break through walls. Yeesh. Also, the Emperor's death.

*** The Skeksis. [[spoiler:Unlike the urRu, they were absolutely delighted with the separation from the Urskeks, and have no desire to merge with their other halves]]. They're self-serving, hedonistic, outright murderous creatures, but they're also locked in a desperate struggle to simply carry on existing.

** They don't constantly plot the destruction of the Earth, they eat (with very poor table manners) and have their own hobbies; and anyone (with a Middle Ages mindset) would try to prevent their own demise [[spoiler:[[FusionDance even if they weren't completely accurate on it]]]].

* {{Narm}} / NarmCharm: As technically groundbreaking the film may have been, writing and dialogue were not its strong points. It's common for many viewers (particularly those watching for the first time in the present day) to be instantly put off by the film for its incredibly clunky and awkwardly-delivered dialogue. Others, usually those who grew up with the film, view the inelegant script as part of the film's charm.

** Of course, considering [[PassionIsEvil the parts the Skeksis inherited from the Ur-Skeks]], it seems less about accepting the bad parts of yourself and more about not letting one aspect of your personality overshadow everything else.

** Also the Garthim. They are meant to stand on many legs, but you can clearly see the two humans legs in the costume doing all the work.

** Kira can't actually ''fly''. Both times she uses her wings, she merely glides (confirmed in the supplementary material; Gelfling girls could once fly, bot not any more).
