** Also with fans of ''TheWitcher'' due to both them and Moorecock erroneously believing that Geralt of Rivia is a RipOff of Elric, in spite of the fact that outside of a few surface-level similarities (They are both pale, white-haired swordsmen who are known as "The White Wolf" and use a lot of potions), they are very different characters.

* FreudWasRight: Elric is a sorceror who physically and emotionally derives strength from the CoolSword and often talks about how he and the sword are one and he doesn't get any strength without it. His wife Zarozinia finally hangs a {{Lampshade}} by referring to it as "His mistress".

* MainstreamObscurity: Despite being a seminal series in the fantasy genre, its nowhere near as well known as Tolkien's works, or Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire, or for that matter Moorcock's favorite Literature/{{Gormenghast}}. The main reason is perhaps the ArchivePanic and serial nature of the stories which makes it hard for new readers to find an accessible "starting point".

* BaseBreaker: Elric himself. The audience sees him either as a refreshing departure from the standard fantasy hero or as a whiny moron who gets hit by the IdiotBall a bit too much.

* FranchiseZombie: The saga originally consisted of five short stories and the four novellas that became ''Stormbringer''. These nine stories, together, tell a more or less complete story. Then Moorcock decided to write the novel ''Elric of Melniboné'' as a prequel. Then he wrote some new short stories. Then he arranged all the short stories into fix-up novels. Then he wrote five more novels attempting to fill in the "gaps" in the original saga. Then the 12-issue maxiseries for DCComics and the prequel graphic novel ''Elric: Making of a Sorcerer''. And, of course, there's been talk of a FilmOfTheBook dating back to the '70s.
