* ForgotAboutHisPowers : Tula finds out she has the power to influence nature, weather, plants, and animals... and promptly forgets that when the ship could use additional wind, or a toxic fog should be dispersed, or when she's in danger from animals...

to:

* ForgotAboutHisPowers : CrowningMomentOfFunny: In "King Niddler", Konk has been captured for trespassing by the Mobo. ''King'' Niddler tells Konk he's free... to clean up his royal litter.
-->'''Niddler:''' I hate sitting on minga-melon seeds.\\
'''Konk:''' ''(being led by the guards)'' Noy Jitat. Konk rather pluck royal feathers.

** Adding to this, both Galtar and Sara are blonde displaced royals on quests.

** Adding to this, both All three main heroes are blonde, Ren, Galtar and Sara are blonde Sara. Each team contains at least one displaced royals on quests.royal, Ren, Goleeta and Zorn and Sara. The main villain is responsible for the deaths of parents. Bloth is responsible for Ren's father's death, Tormack killed not only Galtar's parents but Goleeta's too. Diabolyn is responsible for Sara's mother's death.



** Also this would be the second HB show to have its heroes on a quest for 13 of something. See ''WesternAnimation/The13GhostsOfScoobyDoo.''

* CompleteMonster: [[EldritchAbomination The Dark Dweller]] is the [[BiggerBad being behind]] the titular [[MurderWater "Dark Water,"]] a menacing oily substance that devours whatever it touches and is spreading all throughout the world. By proxy, the Dweller is responsible for countless deaths of places that the Dark Water has devoured. The Dark Dweller is focused on domination and destruction who plans to unleash its Dark Water throughout the world, focused only on consuming and controlling what it can.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Narm}}: In Andorus level in the Sega Genesis game, you have to work your way through networks of caves infested with savage beasts and pools of dark water, accompanied by an almost hypnotic while also creepy background tune. All of the quiet menace is a little undone by the farting noises made by blobs of dark water shooting out of pools, though.

* Chickification : when Tula is introduced, she is a capable sailor ActionGirl with her own agenda. After she finds out about her magical powers, she not only gets a more revealing outfit, but is mostly shown either swooning and moaning because of using said powers, or just shouting at other characters and [[DistressedDamsel needing some sort of rescue.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SeasonalRot : After a great start, with changing loyalties, various factions, reveals, dramatic deaths and competent villains, there comes (from ''Andorus'' onwards) a sequence of filler episodes in which Ren becomes more naive and easy to fool, Ioz becomes dumb muscle, and Tula is [[Chickification chickified]] badly. Further treasures are found almost as an afterthought in otherwise MonsterOfTheWeek storylines.


Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot : Ren learns that his father distributed the treasures he had found among his seven trusted companions. So when Ren and his friends are looking for them, they must have been hidden anew by these companions. However, there is no mention of this. It could have been a great addition to the story arc to see those seven, learn of their relationship to Primus, and the reasons why they chose such and such hiding places for the treasures.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Niddler's obsession with food and his cowardice both become a lot less comical when you recall he's a member of a ''slave race'' who was sold to ''Bloth'' of all people. Starvation was clearly a big part of his life before Ren rescued him, and courage likely wasn't rewarded by either the slavers who raised him or the Maelstrom's crew...
* HoYay: young and (as much as we can tell) pretty Tula runs about with a bare midriff among seamen ([[HehHehYouSaidX snicker]]) and the only one who really takes notice of her is Bloth of all people. Ren seems pretty comatose when it comes to the opposite sex and while Ioz does mention that he enjoys women, he keeps grabbing and hugging Ren by the waist. Also, Ioz and Zooley are pretty shippable.
* NightmareFuel: It's never pretty when Dark Water gets a hold of anything or anyone. In one episode, ''one drop'' consumed someone from the inside out.

** Opening of episode four. Skulls and bones and creepy ship and carnivorous dragons...
** Ren's eyes NEVER move. Although that may be more UncannyValley. Especially since half the time he's looking at the screen head on when there's no way he should be able to...

* OlderThanTheyThink: This show is one that haters of [[Creator/HannaBarbera its studio]] love to give a slide to. But this sometimes crosses over into it being one of the studio's "not rip-offs", even though if we say WesternAnimation/WallyGator owes a lot to early WesternAnimation/YogiBear, then this show owes a lot to WesternAnimation/{{Wildfire}} and WesternAnimation/GaltarAndTheGoldenLance. All three of which being show's about displaced royalty on quests in a basic sense among other similarities.
** Adding to this both Galtar and Sara are also blonde displaced royals on quests.

** Also this would be the second HB show to have it's heroes on a quest for 13 of something. See WesternAnimation/The13GhostsOfScoobyDoo
** To the majority though, most of such examples are TropesAreNotBad.

* {{Squick}}: In ''A Drop of Darkness'' Cray is insistent on marrying Ren while calling him Primus. A whole new level is taken when considering that earlier in the episode Cray muses that Ren might have been [[ParentalIncest her son]].

** Take it one step further: Brock Peters (aka [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Ben Sisko]]) also voiced Galtar's main antagonist; a couple of years later he would also voice [[WesternAnimation/SwatKats Dark Kat]] for the studio. Making that series OlderThanTheyThink as well in terms of recycling.
