[[caption-width-right:250: Meet the cast: [[WeaselMascot Hector,]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Gwizdo,]] and [[GentleGiant Lian-Chu]].]]

A short (two seasons in UsefulNotes/{{France}}, [[BadExportForYou one and a half in]] UsefulNotes/TheUnitedStates) 2004 French cartoon series that became a CGI film in 2008.

The story is set in a WorldInTheSky, originally intended to be our own, millennia into the future, but later RetConned as being a different universe entirely (with a mythological (?) dragon having caused the literal Big Bang). There's a ''lot'' of [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] around, ranging from minor nuisances to sources of mortal danger, and the two protagonists [[LovableCoward Gwizdo]] and [[GentleGiant Lian-Chu]] are constantly searching for lucrative dragon-slaying jobs. It can be considered a [[WidgetSeries Weird Thing from France]], though it is notable in that they had gotten ''Music/TheCure'' to do the theme song.

The series was shown on ''Creator/CartoonNetwork'' on the weekends, but, as with a lot of their foreign-produced and acquired programming, received little to no promotion. This ensured that the series wouldn't last on the U.S airwaves. At the least, [[TheMovie the movie]] was dubbed and released in the U.S.

[[folder: Tropes the TV show provides examples of]]

* AbnormalLimbRotationRange: Dungeon Dragons can do this with both limbs and necks. It does help them to move better underground.
* ActionGirl: Zoe/Zoria.
* AerithAndBob: Inverted. In a world that has outlandish names like Gwizdo or Zoria and multiple cultures (mainly influenced by East Asian countries like China and Japan), Zaza's father's name is Roger.
* AllAnimalsAreDogs: Hector, the little blue dragon, often acts like a dog (he growls, sometimes barks, and cocks his leg to pee), but gets angry if someone mistakes him for one. He also wears a dog collar.
* AndIMustScream: In "Don't Look Now", Gwizdo and Lian-Chu return to the inn to find everybody petrified by a Petrovile dragon. Hector also gets petrified later in the episode.
* ArabianNightsDays: The kingdom in "The High Life" has this motif overall.
* BeleagueredAssistant: Hector ends up doing the majority of the grunt work for Gwizdo and Lian-Chu: carrying heavy loads of equipment and supplies, pedalling the ''St. George'', sharpening weapons, and even (at one point) doing Gwizdo's laundry. While Lian-Chu seems appreciative of Hector's efforts and treats him with respect as a part of the team, Gwizdo often adds insult to injury by loading on the verbal abuse. Hector responds to Gwizdo by grumbling about the situation.
* BackFromTheDead: The Salamango dragon can revive even if beheaded if he's slain for a trivial or worthless reason. The Rain Dragon will revive from its ashes if the blood of its killer is spilt on them.
* BerserkButton: Gwizdo is normally a fast-talking coward, but even he gets furious when he sees his former orphanage bully using the other children of the Orphan farm as slaves in his mine.
** One of the two Forrestal Brothers goes berserk at the Dungeon Dragons when he thinks they have gobbled up his brother.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Lian-Chu is one of the kindest souls in this universe, but you don't want to make him angry.
* BigDamnHeroes: Subverted when, in "By the Book", Gwizdo is up to his chin in quicksand and Lian-Chu and Hector swoop in to save him... and are promptly caught in the net other hunters set up to catch a dragon (with Gwizdo as bait). Gwizdo has sunk completely by the time Lian-Chu does manage to drag him out.
* BigGuyLittleGuy: Gwizdo is a skinny runt, and Lian-Chu is ''very'' tall.
* BondCreatures: The red dragon from "Treasure Rock" seems to have bond with Zoria, obeying her orders and going berserk when the handsome boy she was in love with smugly dumps her. She ultimately release him in the end of the episode.
* BreathWeapon: Obviously, but not always, Dragons usually spit fire, with some variation who can breath icy mist, lightning, sand or simply barf-like slime to imprison their prey.
* TheBrute: Osric, Lian-Chu's replacement from "Farewall, Lian-Chu", fits the bill: he's big, strong and able to beat Dragons with just a wooden club, but is also a gluttonous, arrogant oaf who costantly bad-mouths Gwizdo and Lian-Chu and eventually tries to kill the former.
* CatchPhrase: Gwizdo has a collection of these ("Just sign here, here, and here." "Boyoboyoboyoboy!" "Run for your liiiiiiives!"), and Lian-Chu even gets in on the action once in a while ("It won't ''work'', Gwizdo").
* CallBack: TheMovie was out between Season 1 and 2. Season 2 episode "The Master of the Dragon" has Jennyline deliver exposition: Zoria's real name is Zoé, she's the little girl from TheMovie, and Jeannyline adopted her.
* ChekhovsSkill: Lian-Chu's knitting comes up in several episodes. He even enters a knitting tournament at some point.
* ChromaticArrangement: [[spoiler: The world-creating Dragons were composed of a pure white mother and three sons, one red, one blue and one yellow. Only the Red one is shown as immature, prideful and short-tempered.]]
* ClipShow: "May I See your License Please?" shows again the battles against most of the previously-encountered Dragons, having only a few minutes of original story.
* CoolBigSis: Zoria to Zaza, who wants to follow in her footsteps.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Episodes are generally centered on Gwizdo and Lian-Chu, but occasionally [[PluckyGirl Zaza]], [[BeleagueredAssistant Hector]] and [[ActionGirl Zoria]] are the protagonists.
* DeathWorld: With all the Dragons around,and the constant Danger of falling from an Island you may very well call it one.
* DeadpanSnarker: Gwizdo; Hector also counts.
* DeathByIrony: Narrowly averted. Gwizdo nearly [[SuperDrowningSkills died]] in the FountainOfYouth. Hilariously, they rescued him right around potty-training age. [[OvernightAgeUp He got better]] by the next episode, though.
* DemonicPossession: The Scarlet Slayer can possess people and animals to turn them into docile zombies. [[spoiler: Subverted in "The Master of the Dragon", Yamatono's amulet simply allows to give orders to Orodi, nothing else.]]
* DiagonalCut: [[spoiler: How Lian-Chu kills the Salamango for good while saving Zaza.]]
* DisabilityImmunity: In "Don't Look Now", the only person in the inn whom the Petrovile has not petrified is [[CloudCuckoolander Noble Kao]], whose eyesight is so bad he regularly mistakes Gwizdo for a little girl and talks to a coat and hat on a hanger.
* DisneyVillainDeath: Given the floating islands all over the place, it's inevitable that many dragons and villains meet their end in such a fashion. Human bad guys though are often seen landing on a small floating rock instead.
* DisproportionateRetribution: After the main characters killed a dragon made out of fire, it exploded and covered a nearby village in a thin layer of ash. The people there apparently thought that was a good reason to try to kill them.
* TheDungAges: Given the time period implied there is no such thing as indoor plumbing (they use chamber pots)or refrigeration or anything close to modern hygiene standards for the general public; only the wealthy. The characters notably don't bathe often, and Gwizdo once handed Hector his laundry and said it should be done 'once a year' at least.
* ExitPursuedByABear: Quite often, human villains who trick our heroes or try to kill them ends up face to face with the episode's dragon. Notable examples include "Little Rumble in the Praerie", "The Isle of Mists" and "The Shipwrecker". A small variation in "Farewell Lian-Chu" where Lian-Chu's {{Jerkass}} uncle and his assistant are stuck on the island with a furious Osric angry at them.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Hector's "Big Cousin" (a Dragon of the same species but larger) seems to prefer a rather unusual diet, like wood and [[{{Squick}} cow dung]]. Hector is not amused.
* FatAndProud: Jennyline again. After going on a hunt with the guys, she tells them that she's never doing that again because it's "bad for her waistline": she lost 20 pounds (not that she looks any different).
* {{Fartillery}}: The porcine dragon from "Isle of Mist" has a rather... unique method of flight. Which leaves a thick tray of black smoke behind.
* FluffyTheTerrible: The eponymous Sweetypie from "The Sweetypie Clause", an enormous dragon with the mentality of a three-month puppy.
* {{Foil}}: The merchant trio from "The Convoy" is one to the heroes themselves, consisting in a fast-talking, slimy merchant, a huge, stoic and gentle giant of foreign origins and a small, hairy dragon who speaks in gibberish.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Gwizdo does this near the beginning of the episode "Isle of Mist" [[spoiler:after seeing how old all of the Brotherhood members are.]]
-->'''Gwizdo:''' Looks like rutabagas aren't quite the Elixir of Life.
* {{Fountain of Youth}}: This is the real reason why the Brotherhood of the Dogdalites [[spoiler: values the Island of Mist so much.]]
* GaiasVengeance: [[spoiler: The Sun Dragon from "The Body Beautiful" only attacks people who are cruel against animal or nature. Lian-Chu even call him a "Dragon of Justice".]]
* GentleGiant: Lian-Chu.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Occasionally, since the French radar is generally more relaxed than its American counterpart. Particular mention goes to Gwizdo's MaleGaze on Dream! Jennyline, though.
** In "The High Life", Lian-Chu hears Gwizdo and the Princess giggling from a lit window, and soon enough the lights are off. However, for innocent minds it doesn't look too suspicious: those two even could shortly say goodbye in such a way.
** Zoria's first love, pirate Malo, seems to be a real Casanova, as we can hear from their last talk. In the dark of the night before this she naively asked him to kiss her, and we can only wonder what followed after that.
* GiantEqualsInvincible: Averted, sometimes giant Dragons have weakspots that make them easy prey, while the tiny, unassuming Perfect Storm Dragon was one of the most dangerous dragons to deal with.
* GoryDiscretionShot: Most of the time when they actually have to kill a Dragon with a sword.
* GoshDangItToHeck: An example from "The Family Fortune" springs to mind: "I am your son. I swear to [[GoshDangItToHeck gosh]] I am."
** Though, notably, Gwizdo says "hell" repeatedly in the episode "It's a Dragon's Life".
* HammyHerald: Gwizdo for Lian-Chu, who's too reserved (and arguably honest) to boast about his skills. Prince Charming has one too, who's actually a slimy, two-tongued coward who immediatly abandons him whe he's defeated by a dragon.
* AHeadAtEachEnd: The serpentine dragon from "The Family Fortune" sports this, which actually ruins the plans of the heroes for taking him by surprise.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Gwizdo and Lian-Chu. They've been best friends almost as long as they can remember (both were orphaned as kids and grew up together at the same orphanage). Lian-Chu is the only one who can make Gwizdo's conscience work, and without Gwizdo, Lian-Chu would always fight dragons for free and would probably have starved long ago.
* HornAttack: The only way to kill a [[MadeOfIron Borback]] is to use [[HoistByHisOwnPetard a Borback's horn]].
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: More often than not, some episodes will have human antagonists who are actually worse and more ruthless than the dragons themselves. Great examples include Prince Takeru from "The Legend of the Rain Dragon" , [[spoiler: Iago]] from "The Cure" and [[spoiler: the whole Brotherhood of Dogdalites.]]
* IAmAHumanitarian: The Dwarves in "For a Fistful of Veggies" normally eat beans and vegetables, but are willing to make a barbecue out of the heroes when they seemingly fail to defeat the dragon.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Quite a few episode titles are plays on well-known catchphrases or allusions to other works ("Desperately Seeking Zoria", "Little Rumble on the Prairie", "A Fistful of Veggies"/"For a Few Veggies More", etc.)
* ItsPersonal: In "The Conjuction of the Three Moons", Lian-Chu visits his, now rebuilt village in order to face off against the very same dragon that destroyed his village years ago. [[spoiler: And succeeds in driving him away.]]
* KillItWithFire: How the heroes defeat the Rain Dragon. Luckily, he can revive from his ashes.
* KillItWithWater: A number of Dragons are vulnerable to water, including obviously enough one that's made of fire and another who's electrically-charged. Also, two dragons who are capable of mind control (Scarlet Slayer and Drago Menta) are vulnerable to water/snow, which disrupts their hypnosis.
* KnightInShiningArmor: Prince "Charming" Granion. While at first he looks like a brainless, pompous fop, he's shown to be a decent person after all.
* {{Koan}}: Lian-Chu always has one handy. Sometimes {{lampshaded}} by Gwizdo. [[spoiler: Thanks to a single Koan, Lian-Chu's able to persuade the Red Dragon that he didn't need to gather actual treasure, but to become wise.]]
* LivingShadow: The aptly named and nightmarish Shadow Dragon is one who feeds on the heat of people and locations, leaving a frozen wasteland wherever he goes.
* LotusEaterMachine: in the episode ''[[spoiler: "The Stuff of Dreams"]]'', [[spoiler: Gwizdo breathes in spores from a dragon and falls into a coma; in his dream, he becomes a hero, everybody respects him, and Jennyline is a stunning red-haired beauty he falls in love with. The Dragon responsible does this to lure people in its tentacles]].
* LovableCoward: Gwizdo. Borders sometimes on DirtyCoward when the Jerk side of his JerkWithAHeartOfGold personality gains the advantage. Also the fake Roger, who at first hides like a coward from the dragon but ultimately risks his life to save Zaza from him.
* LovableRogue: Gwizdo again.
* ManEatingPlant: The dragon in "Combat spores". Highlights include Lian-Chu fighting it with a sickle and being ultimately defeated by Gwyzdo's [[LethalChef salad dressing.]]
* MessyPig: Leopold, Zaza's cherished pet.
* MindRape: The Drago Menta use his mental powers to do this to Lian-Chu, forcing him to fight all the previously encountered Dragons and then grotesque hybrids of said Dragons and his own friends.
* MixAndMatchCritters: A few dragons. The Snow Dragon looks part snake, part shark, the one in "For a Fistful of Veggie" resembles a giant frog with elephantine legs and a whale-like throat, while the one in "Baby in the Family" looks like a hybrid of mosquito and crocodile.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: Each episode features a battle against a different [[OurDragonsAreDifferent "dragon"]]; by the end of the episode, the creature has been vanquished, proved harmless or freed. Sometimes said dragon makes a cameo in another episode (for example the GiantSpider from "Billy Thoughnut" reappears in "Farewell Lian-Chu" and "By the Book" as a minor antagonist.
* MrViceGuy: Gwizdo usually haggles with desperate villagers over the price of the Hunters' services or actually tries to swindle them. However, his schemes either go wrong or his good nature prevails, effectively preventing the team from [[StatusQuoIsGod getting rich and settling down]].
** Crosses with FatalFlaw in that he's also a coward, although most of the time he's the [[LovableCoward lovable]] rather than the [[DirtyCoward dirty]] sort. PlayedForDrama in "Dragontagious", in which a dragon has knocked Lian-Chu's sword out of his hand and Lian-Chu is fighting for his life. Gwizdo is too terrified to even move (let alone give his friend his sword); he remains flat on the ground, hands on his ears, and cries.
* MultiMeleeMaster: Lian-Chu is mostly a swordsman, but can employ other weapons as staves, axes, clubs and sickles.
* MundaneUtility: In "Hell around Town", Gwizdo uses the dragon [[ContinuityNod captured in "City Bound"]] as a tourist attraction and to cook meat.
* MyBrainIsBig: Drago Menta has a seriously BodyHorror one, bigger than the rest of his body and sporting a fanged mouth in the middle.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Lian-Chu often shows genuine remorse when he finds out he's just slain a harmless of innocent dragon.
* NeverLearnedToRead: It makes sense [[MedievalEuropeanFantasy for the setting]] and isn't really harped upon one way or the other, but few people actually know how to read in this society except those that can afford the schooling or have jobs that require it. For the most part being able to read or write [[TheSimpleLifeIsSimple isn't needed]] in order to function on a daily basis in this world. In fact most people that sign the contracts are literally just [[ShownTheirWork scratching an 'X' on the line]] because they can't write their own names.
** This is also why Gwizdo is invaluable as a teammate despite being [[NonActionGuy basically useless in battle]]. On the rare occasions he isn't there to do it finding someone that can read for them is a [[GuideDangIt mini-quest in and of itself]].
** It's also the only reason the guys were even included in the episode "Treasure Rock". Zoria had to swing by the Inn to pick up the guys for the adventure because she needed someone that would willingly read a book for her (though he did try to [[OnlyInItForTheMoney charge her by the page]]). Lian-Chu was just a bonus for that one; Zoria specifically went there to pick up Gwizdo.
* NeverSayDie: [[AvertedTrope averted.]] The RealSongThemeTune by Music/TheCure says it as much as it can, for one.
* NoAccountingForTaste: The beautiful princess from "The High Life" seems to genuinely prefer Gwizdo over Prince Granion. Gwizdo has no problem with this, until he learns that she's ready to renounce to her status to be with him.
* NonActionGuy: Gwizdo. He's still willing to put his life on the line for Lian-Chu though, including facing dangerous dragons like the [[FatBastard Mimikmar]] and the [[MindRape Drago Menta]].
* NonMaliciousMonster: A handful of Dragons are actually harmless or even benefical to human if left alone, like the Rain Dragon or the Sun Dragon.
* OffWithHisHead: In "Who's Lost his Head Now?", Gwizdo brings Jennyline the head of a dragon Lian-Chu has just killed as a trophy. The inn in promptly haunted by the dragon who's looking for his head and eventually re-attaches it.
* OhCrap: In the show's intro, Gwizdo, Lian-Chu, and Hector get this expression once they realize that they're standing in a large dragon's ''mouth''.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Most of the time. Subverted for an heartwarming moment in "The Orphan Farm", where Gwizdo not only helps the orphanage's children and Mother Hubbard for free, but also willingfully gives them the large bag of money they already had to rebuild the orphanage.
* OnlySixFaces: Mostly averted, although some of the villagers are clearly the same from one episode to another.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Oh yes. Gwizdo and Lian-Chu go after a number of different kinds of dragons over the course of the series, and no two are alike. With all the variety, it seems most likely that any creature that is threatening enough to make a village hire hunters to get rid of it is labeled a "dragon" for simplicity's sake.
** Noticeably, the Dragons who looks more like traditional Oriental Dragons tend to be good and attack only when provoked. [[spoiler: Meanwhile the Red Dragon looks like the standard western Dragon, including being intelligent, kidnapping princesses and stealing gold for his hoard.]]
* PintSizedPowerhouse: The Perfect Storm Dragon from "The Shipwrecker" looks very small and lame... then you see [[BlowYouAway ''why'']] he's known as "The Perfect Storm Dragon".
* PluckyGirl: Zaza.
* ProverbialWisdom: Lian-Chu is wise in spite of his naivety, and has a {{Koan}} for nearly every occasion.
* RealityEnsues: In "Don't Look Now", Gwizdo and Lian-Chu have been paid in food, which they bring back to the inn, but they find it's been attacked by a dragon and everybody is petrified. When they come back with the cure, it's been a couple of days, the food has gone bad, and Jennyline adamantly refuses that the rent be paid in stinky, rotten food.
* RealMenWearPink: Lian-Chu is a ''very'' skilled swordfighter, a badass, something of a GeniusBruiser and a generally big muscular giant of a guy. He's also very fond of knitting.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Agheegoo from the titular episode. Even a greedy jerk like Gwizdo ends up genuinely loving him.
* SamusIsAGirl: Zoria. Also the commander in "Treasure Rock".
* ShorterMeansSmarter: Occasionally subverted, as Gwizdo clearly is the most skilled when it comes to getting jobs (and money - Lian-Chu and Hector usually don't really make a lot when he's not around), but Lian-Chu is often more [[TheStraightMan sensible]] than Gwizdo.
* SkyPirate: In one episode, Zoria joins a crew of Sky Pirates, whose ship is powered by a massive red Dragon resembling a winged snake tied to the hull.
* SharkFinOfDoom: The Snow Dragon (resembling a hybrid of snake and shark) plays this trope straigth in snowfields.
* ShoutOut: The flying machine that Gwizdo, Lian-Chu, and Hector use to travel from place to place is called the ''St. George''. Given the subject of the series, this a likely reference to the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_George dragon-killing Catholic saint]] of the same name.
** "The Master of the Dragon" is a nod to the legend of [[{{Orochi}} Yamata-no-Orochi]], including having a vaguely japanese village, a eight-headed Dragon named Orodi and a young boy named (Sus)Anowo.
* StandardHeroReward: In ''The High Life'', Gwizdo tricks Prince Charming and has the chance to marry a beautiful princess (who's actually head over heels for him) and inherit a kingdom, but has to defeat the terrible [[SandWorm Blaster]] dragon. [[spoiler: Even if the dragon is killed, his hoax is uncovered, and while the Princess is still willing to marry him she's also ready to renounce to all her money, which turns Gwizdo off.]]
* StatusQuoIsGod: Sometimes the two hunters get to fly home with the reward money, but by the start of the next episode, they are invariably flat broke.
** Deconstructed in the episode "Hell around Town". After the duo makes enough money to settle down in the city, Gwizdo looses all the money he earned in a scam. Faced with huge debts, they are forced to flee and by the end of the episode they are again doing chores.
* SuddenlyVoiced: Normally, Dragons don't talk, but the Salamango in "Who's Lost Their Head Now?" suddenly gloats to Lian-Chu in an ominous, [[EvilSoundsDeep deep voice]], warning him that no matter how many times they kill him, he'll come back. It's unclear if Lian-Chu is hallucinating or if Salamango Dragons can actually talk. [[spoiler: The Red Dragon is also highly intelligent and capable of speech.]]
* TakenForGranite: In a rather unusual case, Dungeon Dragons hunt by blocking their prey between their long limbs, neck and tail before turning to stone, trapping their victims in an unbreakable cage where they'll starve and dry to death. The Dragon then turns back to flesh and eat the remains.
* ThoseMagnificentFlyingMachines: The ''St. George''.
* ThoseTwoGuys: The Forrestall brothers.
* ThrowTheDogABone: From time to time the Dragon Hunters actually manage to sail home with some gold from their journey.
* TickleTorture: Happens in the episode ''Desperately Seeking Zoria''.
* TheUnintelligible: Hector mostly speaks in gibberish with a few comprehensible words thrown in here and there.
* TheUnishment: Played for laughs and subverted in "The Grand Tournament": the punishment for the heroes consist in being thrown from the highest cliff of the island... which is barely two feet tall. The subversion comes when it's revealed that they'll also be rolled over by a giant, spiked boulder at least five times in a row.
* UnitConfusion: Apparently there was a decree 30 years ago that changed all units of measurement throughout the kingdom(s). Gwizdo and Lian-Chu once agreed to a contract for a dragon that was stated as being five feet high only to discover that the isolated people hadnít heard of that decree; thus the dragon was far larger than either of them expected it to be since they had been referring to the old feet and not the new feet.
* WackyWaysideTribe: The one that worships the Mimikmar in "The Gland of Mimikmar". Hilariously enough, since the Dragon is so fat he cannot lower his head to breath fire at ground level, it's composed of people short enough to avoid the fire breath alltogether.
* WeaselMascot: Hector. Also TheUnintelligible and a DeadpanSnarker.
* WorldInTheSky: The setting of the series.
* {{Wutai}}: As noted above, there are a few villages with a heavy chinese/japanese atmosphere. The dragons living nearby tend to look like Oriental Dragons as well.
* {{Youkai}}: "Billy Thoughnut" has a Dragon in the form of a shapeshifting GiantSpider who bears an overall striking resemblance to the youkai Jorogumo. Also, "The Master of the Dragon" has an oriental village under attack from a [[{{Orochi}} eight-headed, oriental-looking dragon called "Orodi"]].
* YouAreNotAlone: Gwizdo, of all people, says this in essence to Lian-Chu after his long-lost uncle turned out to be a {{Jerkass}} who deliberately let a dragon destroy Lian-Chu's village and his family because he was jealous.
-->'''Gwizdo''' (''when they're back at the inn with Zaza and Jennylin''): "You see, big guy? Your family's right here."

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Tropes the movie provides examples of]]
* AdaptationalUgliness: In the animated series, Gwidzo is presented as charismatic and moderately attractive. The film portrays him as grimy and unpleasant, even having him describe himself as "mean and ugly" during a breakdown.
* AnimalisticAbomination: The World Gobbler, which causes great destruction every time it wakes up.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: Lian-Chu destroys the World Gobbler [[spoiler:by throwing his needles at the beast's eyes.]]
* BigBad: The World Gobbler
* CatchPhrase: Zoe finds Gwizdo and Lian-Chu's adventures to be consistently "Unreal!"
* {{Dracolich}}: The World Gobbler, again.
* HardCut: Several examples, but the most obvious is Zoe's CurseCutShort (at least in original French) at the end of the film. Gwizdo, Lian-Chu, and Zoe are singing, and the camera pans toward Zoe. When Zoe's face almost fills the screen, the film immediately cuts to the end credits before she can finish the verse on what is presumarbly [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar a very rude word]].
* MoodWhiplash:
** One occurs when Gwizdo, Lian-Chu, and Zoe [[spoiler:crash-land on the surface at the End of the World]], and Zoe [[spoiler:fakes a DisneyDeath]] to find out if Gwizdo really cared for her.
** Then there's the ending: [[spoiler:Lian-chu defeats the villain of the film, the World-Gobbler, while Gwizdo, Hector, and Zoe are terrified and trying to save their lives. The World-Gobbler explodes, FadeToWhite... And then there's ''floating bunnies'' everywhere, and Gwizdo, Lian-Chu, and Zoe planning their dream farm, all the while with bright green planetoids straight out of ''SuperMarioGalaxy'' float around.]]
* TheMovie: And it is The Prequel, too.
* OneToMillionToOne: The "Red Swarm". Constituted of many small red flying creatures (looking like a cross of toad and bat), it can assemble into a large, fire-breathing dragon/ogre. Once, the dragon reconstitutes while the swarm is separated in several places; its head ends up stuck inside a barn, the body outside and one leg farther away, but still mobile and aware of its other body parts.
* ThisIsNoTimeForKnitting: At the beginning of [[TheMovie The Movie]], Gwizdo berates Lian-Chu for knitting. Later, Zoe (thinking the needles she found were Gwizdo's) points out that it's not very knight-like to knit, yet in the end, Lian-Chu uses the knitting needles to [[spoiler:blind and destroy the [[EldritchAbomination world-eating monster]]]] they were after.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Tropes both the TV show and the movie provide examples of]]

* AchillesHeel: As noted by Lian Chu, every single dragon, no matter how big or powerful, has a weakness that can be exploited. It can be anything from hitting a specific body part to using water, fire or sunlight to defeat it, bordering with WeaksauceWeakness.
* {{Meaningful Name}}:
** Tubalard, who (you can probably tell from the name) is a bit portly.
** There's also Sir Lensflair, whose extremely shiny armor causes lens flares in the camera.
* SceneryPorn: There's plenty of that in the TV show, but the movie has incredible amounts of it, especially at the [[spoiler:End of the World]].
