* NeverASelfMadeWoman: Three female characters appear in the main cast. Becky, for all her having a life, career, and hobby of her own, is only important because she is Dave's LoveInterest (she does play a key role in helping save the world, but she wouldn't have gotten the chance to do it if she weren't involved with him). Veronica, despite being an apprentice of Merlin and therefore of equal power with Horvath and Balthasar (the GrandTheftMe spell she uses to absorb Morgana is stated to be extremely difficult and she is one of the few sorcerers to have accomplished it), is only significant in the plot because she is Balthasar's LoveInterest, is the [[FreudianExcuse reason]] [[spoiler:Horvath went bad due to a LoveTriangle]], and because she holds Morgana prisoner; otherwise she does nothing, only barely assisting Dave in defending against Morgana during the climax. The only female who has power in her own right, without depending on a man for it (and in fact specifically [[BadassBoast declares she is "no one's servant"]]), is...Morgana, the BigBad. And she still only gets a total of two scenes.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Aside from whether or not Drake is truly evil, there's the bit with Morgana herself where her StartOfDarkness is revealed to at least partially be because she didn't want to serve anyone, especially Merlin (a man). [[SubvertedTrope On the other hand]], what Merlin was actually talking about was being a servant to the power you wield (and thus showing it respect and honoring the people you're supposed to help with it), so Morgana refusing to do this is actually a sign of her arrogance and megalomania, not a real FreudianExcuse.

* GeniusBonus: It's not likely that historians and [[TheCrucible literature nerds]] would be seeing a SummerBlockbuster like this in the first place, but who else would know who [[CreepyChild Abigail Williams]] was?!

* HilariousInHindsight: A nod to ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' in a Disney movie? Makes sense. A ShoutOut to StarWars? Give it a few years...
** JayBaruchel's character claiming he has no idea how to command the giant steel eagle. [[HowToTrainYourDragon Think he'd have better luck with a dragon?]]

* DracoInLeatherPants: [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Blonde, arrogant young]] [[HarryPotter evil wizard with a British accent]]? Who's actually wearing Leather Pants? Whose name is ''[[ShoutOut Drake]]!'' Considering that Drake didn't seem to relish the idea of killing children to take over the world and didn't really do anything all that evil, this is one of the more plausible cases...
