'''''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.
* ButNowIMustGo: Conan, at the ending.
* CannibalTribe
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: The climax has Conan besting the revived Dagoth in combat.
* DirtyCoward / LovableCoward: Malak
* FiveManBand
** TheHero -- Conan
** TheLancer -- Zula
** TheSmartGuy -- Akiro
** TheBigGuy -- Both Zula and Bombaata count for this. And Conan as well.
** TheChick -- Malak and Jehnna fit this.
** TheSixthRanger -- Bombaata. [[spoiler:Also a SixthRangerTraitor.]]
* 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. WordOfGod is that the stunt men really didn't like working with her in fight scenes, as she had a tendency to accidentally put them in hospital. Her fighting is really, really good.
* 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.
* 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.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Conan tosses his sword at the sorcerer Thoth-Amon, without even seeing him
* 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".
