Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* {{Squick}}: What Jagreen Lern does to [[spoiler:Zarozinia]] in ''Stormbringer.''
* {{Wangst}}: A good portion of pages in most books is dedicated to describe Elric's self-loathing.
** Reaches SelfParody in some moments, where it's clear even people who've just met Elric are already fed up with it.

** Lampshaded in some stories, where Elric tries to argue that he doesn't want to be pitied, but others say he wants nothing more.
