** They don't constantly plot the destruction of Thra, 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]]]]. Then again, they ''also'' make a habit of kidnapping entire villages of people, throwing them into a dungeon, and then hideously stealing their life force, leaving them little more than zombies.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* {{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.
