'''''Conan the Destroyer''''' is the sequel to ''Film/{{Conan the Barbarian|1982}}'', released in the year 1984. Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger and Creator/{{Mako}} return to reprise their respective roles.

Conan and his accomplice Malak are tasked by Queen Taramis to escort her niece Princess Jehnna to obtain an artifact needed to resurrect Dagoth, "The Dreaming God". Little does he know that the god in question will bring the age of darkness upon its resurrection, and the princess has to be sacrificed in order to do so.

!!''Conan the Destroyer'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* BodyguardCrush: Jehna has one on Conan.
* BrokenAesop: Zula shows that women can be as strong and independent as men, fighting beside them and "taking them" when they want to get laid. However, she's also pledged her life to Conan, a man. In the end, Jehna says that a woman can be just as effective a guard captain as a man, but Zula must get Conan's permission to accept.
* ButNowIMustGo: Conan, at the ending.
* CannibalTribe
* CowardlyLion: Malak is one of the good guys, but he'd rather not be. He's constantly suggesting that he stay behind while the others go off into danger, but either circumstances or his own pride force him to follow along.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: Jehna offers to marry Conan and rule her kingdom at his side. He declines. She kisses him, but he doesn't even kiss her back, then walks out without a backward glance. That's cold, Conan!
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: The climax has Conan besting the revived Dagoth in combat.
* FiveManBand
** TheHero -- Conan, the guy in the title.
** TheSmartGuy -- Akiro, the wizard.
** TheBigGuy -- Bombaata, who towers over even Conan.
** TheChick -- Jehnna, the princess in need of rescuing.
** TheSixthRanger -- Zula, who shows up last.
* GenderFlip: The film turned [[http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix4/zula_hyborian.htm Zula]], a male [[MagicKnight warrior/wizard]] from the Creator/MarvelComics line into the non-magical ActionGirl played by Grace Jones as a [[AmazonBrigade Zulu Amazon]] of sorts.
* GroinAttack: Zula pulls this on one of the villagers attacking her. With her staff. Ouch.
* HumanoidAbomination / EldritchAbomination: Dagoth
* TheLadette: Zula
-->'''Jehnna:''' How do you attract a man? What I mean is, suppose you set your heart on somebody. What would you do to get him?\\
'''Zula:''' Grab him! And take him!
* LighterAndSofter: The producers wanted to create a more family-friendly movie, and it shows. ''Destroyer'' is much more comedic and has almost none of the brooding atmosphere of the predecessor.
* LiveActionEscortMission
* LivingStatue: Dagoth's (failed) resurrection has him manifesting through the statue depicting him.
* LockedOutOfTheFight: Conan's companions can only watch helplessly from behind a mirror as he has to fight against the wizard Thoth-Amon.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Dagoth
* OpeningNarration: Mako provides it once again.
* PluckyComicRelief: Malak, to the point that Jehna makes him her court jester in the end.
* RedRightHand: Thoth-Amon, the evil wizard, has a partially melted face to remind you that he's evil.
* ReleasingFromThePromise: After Conan frees her, Zula asks to ride with him and serve him. At the end of the movie Princess Jehnna asks Zula to be the captain of her guard. Conan releases her from her oath to him (and grants her permission to take the post) with a nod.
* RoyalBrat: Princess Jehnna is na´ve, capricious, and obnoxious.
* ScreamingWarrior: Zula
* ScreamingWoman: Jehna, and how.
* SimpleStaff: Zula's WeaponOfChoice.
* TheSneakyGuy: Malak the cowardly thief.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill:
** After Conan rips off Dagoth's horn and kills it, he impales its head with his sword, prompting the theme music to swell triumphantly.
** Immediately after Conan delivers his coup-de-grace, Malak rushes up to stab Dagoth's corpse himself, prompting the triumphant music to swell all over again as he mugs shamelessly.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Conan tosses his sword at the sorcerer Thoth-Amon, without even seeing him
* TokenEvilTeammate: Bombaata, who is instructed to betray the rest of the gang once the objective has been completed. He doesn't make much of a secret of it toward the end.
* VirginSacrifice: Princess Jehnna is meant to be one.
* WeCanRuleTogether: A rare non-evil version of the trope. [[spoiler:Jehnna]] offers Conan to share the throne of Shadizar with her, but he politely declines.
* WizardDuel: As the group tries to evade a bunch of bad guys, Akiro has to use his skills to close a door, with the opposing side's wizard trying to open it. The duel is portrayed almost entirely by chants, gestures, reactions and Basil Poledouris' score, "Dueling Wizards".
