* SugarWiki/AwesomeArt: Try to remind yourself every ten minutes or so that the film was made entirely with hand-drawn animation, without a computer in sight. Because you ''will'' need to.
** As one observer remarked, the sequence inside the battle machine "looks as if someone ''died'' animating it!"



* SoOkayItsAverage: Not the animation, which is [[AwesomeArt god-tier]], but the story, which is little more than your average Disney-like fairy tale.

* WhatTheHellCastingAgency: Arguably, Sean Connery as Tack near the end of the Recobbled Cut. Of course, this was Richard William's original intention, and it was somewhat of a joke, since you wouldn't expect such a skinny guy to have such a deep and suave voice.

* TheyJustDidntCare: After the movie [[ExecutiveMeddling was taken from Richard Williams' hands]], it was passed on to Majestic Films International, who finished it in a manner befitting this trope. Then Miramax got a hold of it.
** The ChristmasRushed cut by Fred Calvert. Apart from being [[OffModel glaringly inconsistent]], if one studies closely there are a slew of errors ([=YumYum=]'s feather disappearing and reappearing during the "She is More" sequence, Tack losing his nose for a frame or two as he says "when to a wall you find your back... A TACK!!!!", etc)

* JerkassWoobie: The Thief, especially if you've seen the Recobbled Cut where an old lady, a polo game, a self destructing war machine and even a bed '''THAT COMES ALIVE FOR NO REAL REASON''' try to kill him. At the finale, he finally gives up the Balls because he had it up to here with the trouble it caused him.

** Williams himself later said that this contributed to the film's ultimate fate. Because he was never sure when the film was going to be finished, every publicity piece on it had him declaring that it would be finished sometime soon. The fact that it never was ultimately hurt it's reputation and made him look like a liar.

** Who was it that made [[spoiler:Tack tan ''in the middle of the night?'' '''The cel painters.''']]
*** ItGotBetter, [[http://orangecow.org/thief/thiefmk4caps/ThiefMk4Work1-166.jpeg the error has been fixed for Recobbled Cut Mark 4.]]
** The Completion Bonds Company, really. Contrary to [[RonTheDeathEater popular opinion]], they did not "steal" the film. Richard Williams had signed a contract with them that said he would complete the film at a fixed date for a specific amount of money, of which he did neither.

* MagnumOpus: Was intended to be this for Richard Williams, in the traditional sense of the phrase ("master piece" as in "the piece you make once you've mastered your medium"), and many agree that what ''was'' completed [[AwesomeArt comes pretty damn close]].
