'''''Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God''''' (also known as ''Dungeons & Dragons: The Elemental Might'') is a 2005 made-for-TV live-action movie set in the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' universe. Unlike the ''Film/DungeonsAndDragons'' film released in 2000, ''Wrath of the Dragon God'' is clearly based upon its source material -- to the point at which it often seems as if its characters are simply explaining various aspects of the Player's Handbook to one another.

3000 years ago, Faluzure, the evil dragon god of decay and undeath, attacked the kingdom of Turan. The Turanian mages (with the help of the god Obadhai) were able to repel Faluzure and imprison him.

100 years ago, the evil mage Damodar -- formerly TheDragon to Jeremy Irons' BigBad in the previous ''Dungeons & Dragons'' movie -- fought against the people of Izmir and was cursed with a century of suffering as one of the undead. Now Damodar is back. He intends to free Faluzure and take his revenge on Izmir.

The people behind this produced a third film called ''Film/DungeonsAndDragonsTheBookOfVileDarkness'', which premiered on SyFy in November 2012.

!!''Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: When Ormaline's Dove familiar Ona gets killed by the lightning floor trap in Malek's vault, Nim can't help but laugh. Needless to say, everyone stares like he just cracked a dead baby joke, though Lux and Berek can be seen [[{{Corpsing}} stifling their own laughter]].
* AnticlimaxBoss: [[invoked]] Both times they fight him, our heroes have no trouble beating Damodar in physical combat. Well he ''is'' a wizard. They beat him in combat both times by being physical, which wouldn't really be a wizard's strength. However, he was a fighter in the previous movie... His loss of that skill makes him quite an anticlimax. He must be a century out of training.
* AnyoneCanDie
* AvengersAssemble
* BarBrawl: Lux's introduction.
* BerserkButton: Don't talk about Lux's brother. Appropriately enough, they're both actually berserkers. Her brother was killed prior to the events of the film because he couldn't keep his rage in check.
* TheBerserker: Lux.
* BigBad: Faluzure.
* BodyHorror: Melora spends most of the movie rotting from the outside in after being cursed by Damodar. Eww.
* BreakTheHaughty: If facial expressions are anything to go by, this happens to Lux in the Goblin town. At first, [[spoiler:she is completely annoyed and unconvinced when Nim stops her from activating what he claims is a trap. When, he reveals that it actually ''was'' a trap, she's more or less floored.]]
* CampGay: Damodar comes off as this in his more ''subdued'' scenes.
* CastAsAMask: [[spoiler:Klaxx]] disguised as [[spoiler:the old mage]]
** Less CastAsAMask since [[spoiler: Oberon]] was a separate character that [[spoiler: Klaxx]] killed and disguised himself as.
* CoversAlwaysLie: The dragon on the cover is not the titular dragon god, but an ice dragon the band meet at the halfway point. Also, the foreground shows multiple dragons attacking the city when Faluzure does this by himself in the actual movie.
* DarkestHour: Just before [[spoiler:Melora uses her faith to defeat the dragon. Recap: [[GameBreaker Dorian's]] dead, Lux and Nim are incapacitated, Ormaline is incapacitated and has lost an arm, Melora's slowly turning into an evil undead creature from a curse, the king is dead, the captain of the guard is dead, the Head of the Council of Mages was killed and replaced long ago, and the rest of the city guard and remaining council mages are putting up a fruitless fight against the dragon god while he rains destruction upon the land.]]
* DontTouchItYouIdiot: Nim stops Lux from impulsively grabbing the chest in the Goblin village, [[GenreSavvy knowing that it's been trapped]].
* TheDragon: Damodar, ''not'' Faluzure, who really ''is'' a dragon.
* DungeonCrawling: Quite possibly the best part of the movie.
* DVDCommentary: One of the {{MST}} variety, done by actors pretending to be 3 iconic [=D&D=] characters: Lidda, Krusk, and Jozan.
* EvilIsNotAToy: Subverted/Averted Faluzure seems quite amicable to his releaser. Although since Damodar had released him from thousands of years of imprisonment, you can assume he'd probably be grateful. Plus, Damodar said that he wished to rule over Izmir "As your thrall", meaning that despite freeing him, he still acknowledged Faluzure as his master and better. Faluzure even pauses to set a tithe rate.
* FacialMarkings: Dorian has some bitchin' racing stripes on his face. Lux's facial tattoo is much more tasteful, by comparison.
* FiveManBand: The party fits just about perfectly into the following roles.
** TheHero: Berek.
** TheLancer: Nim.
** TheBigGuy: Lux.
** TheSmartGuy: Ormaline.
** TheHeart: Dorian.
* GeographicFlexibility: The capital city, merely a century after the first film, is completely different. Gone are the mile-tall towers of the mages, as if the city was razed and rebuilt using more conventional fantasy architecture.
* GhostTown
* HighFantasy: Would be HeroicFantasy except that [[spoiler:the BigBad has to be defeated with the [[MacGuffin orb]] instead of through any kind of combat skills.]]
* {{Hobbits}}: According to WordOfGod and AllInTheManual, Nim is a halfling even though he is only a little shorter than everyone else.
** Maybe he's only half-halfling?
*** [[MindScrew A quarterling?]]
*** [[OverlyLongGag Or would that be a three-quarterling?]]
* JerkAss: Nim.
* IOweYouMyLife: Lux and Nim's friendship picks up after Nim saves her from a spike trap she didn't notice.
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:The lich Klaxx, [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere who flees when trouble begins brewing]].]]
* KillAndReplace: [[spoiler: Klaxx]] does this to [[spoiler: Oberon]]
* LargeHam: Everyone has their moments, but Damodar is king of the ham heap, with Lux coming in at a close second.
* LiterallyShatteredLives: [[spoiler:Dorian, although he was supposed to have returned in the now-cancelled spinoff show.]]
* MrExposition: Damodar.
* NeverMyFault: Once Damodar makes the conditions of his undead curse clear, he abruptly growls that he did '''not''' fail Profion; he simply died before Profion could lift the curse.
* PuttingTheBandBackTogether: Berek knows most of the party from previous adventures and requests their aid specifically.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler:Dorian. Pretty much required for the rest of the plot, since he had [[GameBreaker healing magic and powerful anti-undead abilities.]]]]
* SamusIsAGirl: Lux's introductory scene fools the viewer into believing the barbarian they're talking about is another character - until she starts a BarBrawl with him.
* ScreamingWarrior: In keeping with the source material, Lux, being a barbarian, uses a shout during the climax that's powerful enough to scare Damodar's horse into throwing him off.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere
** [[spoiler:Klaxx.]]
** [[spoiler:Nim and Ormaline are forced to do this due to near fatal injuries]]
* SealedEvilInACan: Faluzure.
* ShipTease: [[TinyGuyHugeGirl Lux and Nim]], with a hint of SlapSlapKiss.
* TeleFrag: Due to an unfortunate flaw built into the pool of sight, Malek died by teleporting himself directly into a wall.[[spoiler: Later, Ormaline does the same thing, but only loses an arm in the process.]]
* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish: Played with when Nim and berek try to figure out the password to Malek's vault.
--> '''Berek:''' Did malek have a wife or children?
--> '''Nim:''' ''*Gives Berek a'' "really?" ''glance*''
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Nim's expression after learning that Berek plans to take them to see a village of goblins.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Nim, who is officially stated to be ChaoticGood but comes across as ChaoticNeutral ''at best''. His ''introductory scene'' has him nonchalantly tricking a couple of fellow thieves into triggering a trap that roasts them alive, after which Nim steals their stuff.
** [[AssholeVictim Though, they did try to rip him off.]]
* TwoLinesNoWaiting: The heroes' quest and the events back home. Actually not too badly done.
* YouShallNotPass: [[spoiler:Lux, near the end. Subverted - she survives and pops up again to help Berek during the final battle.]]
