* 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.

*** Brock Peters did have such an epic voice, a great pick up for the studio to give roles to in the 80s/90s. Too bad he didn't do more.
