'''''Fire and Ice'''''. From their stronghold in Icepeak, the evil [[EvilMatriarch Queen Juliana]] and her son Nekron ([[{{WesternAnimation/Wizards}} not this one]], [[BlackestNight that one]], or [[RhapsodyOfFire the other one]], nor [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}} those guys]]) send forth a wave of glaciers, forcing humanity to retreat south towards the equator. Nekron sends a delegation to King Jarol in Firekeep to request his surrender, but this is really a ruse for Nekron's sub-humans to kidnap Jarol's daughter, the Princess Teegra. But Teegra makes an escape and comes upon Larn, the only survivor of a village razed by glaciers, who offers to escort her back to Firekeep. As Teegra is recaptured, Larn teams with the mysterious Darkwolf to save Teegra and then travel to Icepeak to stop Juliana.

This animated movie was neither financially nor critically successful, but later became a cult classic among fans of the film's two creators, Creator/RalphBakshi and Creator/FrankFrazetta.

Not to be confused with ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', a {{Doorstopper}} epic fantasy series by GeorgeRRMartin. Also not to be confused with [[VideoGame/FireAndIce the game]], the ski movie by Willy Bogner with the same name, or the second ''Literature/WarriorCats'' book.
----
!!''Fire and Ice'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* ActionGirl: Teegra, in many instances. Almost every time she's captured, she's tough and resourceful enough to escape on her own -- before the heroes arrive.
* AerithAndBob: Juliana is a perfectly normal name, but "Nekron"...?
%%* AlikeAndAntitheticalAdversaries
%%* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Juliana.
* ArentYouGoingToRavishMe: Near the end, damsel in distress Teegra is brought into the throne room of the big bad, Nekron, by his mother Juliana. Juliana tells him that she has done this specifically so he can breed with Teegra. Nekron first refuses, at which point Teegra asks if they cannot even be friends for the sake of peace. Nekron embarks on a "screw you" rant, during which he states that he finds the idea of peace and mating with Teegra (who by all reasonable standards fits the attractive female sterotype) to be repulsive, eventually throwing her in the dungeon.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Nekron, shockingly. Despite lounging on his throne and preferring to use his magic to deal with his enemies, he's rather adept with a sword.
* AnAxeToGrind: Darkwolf's usual WeaponOfChoice.
* {{Badass}}: Darkwolf and Nekron are the two major examples, with [[TheHero Larn]] and [[ActionGirl Teegra]] coming in a close second.
* BattleAura: Darkwolf gives off a vibrant blue aura just before [[spoiler:powering through Nekron's magic attacks for the killing blow]].
%%* BigGuy: Darkwolf
%%* BigNo [[spoiler: When Teegra's brother died]]
* BloodKnight: Surprisingly out of all the barbaric looking characters (including Darkwolf), it is Nekron, who should be the SmugSnake and SquishyWizard. Rather than use his magic to simply kill Larn on the spot, he takes off his shirt, takes a sword and spars with him for a bit (though he does use magic in between this spar) and overpowers him. Nekron spares him to be rested because he wounded him and wanted to fight him again and he's interesting [[spoiler:which doesn't happen because he's killed by Darkwolf.]] This would explain why a hot babe like Teegra and peace doesn't interest him.
* TheCoatsAreOff: Nekron removes his robe before fighting Larn.
%%* DarkSkinnedBlond: Larn.
* DeathWorld: At many points, it seems the characters can't go ten feet without getting attacked by dire wolves, killer pillbugs, freshwater giant squid, and [[{{Slurpasaur}} giant iguanas]].
* {{Determinator}}: Darkwolf. [[spoiler: Getting blasted several times by Nekron's magic doesn't bring him down.]]
* DamselOutOfDistress: Teegra's length of time in captivity depends solely on how quickly she can pilfer a dagger from one of her captors, or even just a sharp stick. [[ActionGirl Once that happens...]]
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Princess Teegra is always barefoot. Understandable while she's running around Firekeep, but she seems quite comfortable having bare feet in the frozen wastes of Icepeak as well.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Julianna, as an evil sorceress, fits this trope well.
* EndlessWinter: Nekron is able to expand his ice palace world into the tropics, stopping only when Nekron tires.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Princess Teegra with the added bonus of a string bikini!
* EverythingTryingToKillYou: Dinosaurs, man-and-mook-eating insects, giant squids, wandering packs of wolves... and that's before we even consider the actual bad guys.
* EvilLaugh: Nekron has a rather aristocratic one.
* EvilOverlord: Nekron serves as one of these, if not the EvilPrince to his mother, [[EvilMatriarch Queen Juliana.]]
* EvilSorcerer: [[RuleOfThree Nekron again.]] Most of his on-screen magic is limited to [[PeoplePuppets making intruders kill one another,]] [[MindOverMatter stopping the more resilient from landing a blow on him,]] or expanding his icy fortress across the world.
* EvilTowerOfOminousness: Icepeak, which takes the form of a skull.
* {{Expy}}
** Darkwolf is pretty much [[ConanTheBarbarian Conan]] combined with {{Batman}}.
** [[VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} Rexxar]] heavily resembles Darkwolf as well, and the Blizzard artists are huge Frazetta fans.
%%* {{Fanservice}}: By Frank Frazetta!
* FootPopping: At the very end of the film, when Larn and Teegra embrace, she does this.
* FrazettaMan: Nekron's {{Mooks}}, of course (who look like a cross between Neanderthals and orcs), as well as the big, hairy lug who's the son of the red-haired witch. This ''is'' a work by the TropeNamer.
* GiantFlyer: Dragonhawks [[DinosaursAreDragons They're pretty clearly pterodactyls, as well.]]
* {{Gainaxing}}: Arguably one of the earliest examples, though surprisingly, less than one would expect. They were dismayed to discover they couldn't find an actress with Teegra's endowments; if they had, she probably would have been bouncing like ''crazy'' when she ran.
* GoodAllAlong: The {{mooks}} after the main bad guys are killed. It's implied they'll go back to living in the north and not bother the protagonists.
%%* GoodHairEvilHair: The good guys have pretty natural-looking hair, while Nekron's rocking a long white mane.
%%* GoshdangItToHeck: Averted.
%%* GrimUpNorth
%%* HeroicFantasy
* KickTheDog: The first thing the sub-humans do when they kidnap Teegra? They kill her pet panther.
%%* HonorRelatedAbuse: Never explicitly confirmed, but rather subtly hinted at and dependent on the viewer's interpretation. [[spoiler:The first instance is when Darkwolf refers to Julianna as that Wolf-Bitch. The second instance is when he screams "NEEEKKKRRROOOONNNNN!!!", which suggests that the pending conflict is far more personal than the need to off an infamous villain that everybody knows about. Third, Darkwolf manages to overcome Nekron's magic and bury his axe into the villain's chest. Who could kill such a powerful baddie but his own sire?]]
* LaughingMad: Nekron. He does it rather often near the end.
* LargeHam: Nekron is the chief example, but others, like the forest sorceress, get involved at certain points.
* LeanAndMean: Nekron.
* MadeOfPlasticine: Either that or the knives in this movie are so sharp that they seem to totally ignore thick belts of muscle and bone.
* MaleGaze: Teegra, full stop. If you do a shot every time you see ridiculous amounts of cleavage or she rams her butt into the camera, you'll be dead five minutes later. Mitigated in that she's more than capable of handling herself, at least.
** Though it's somewhat less gratuitous given that Larn's thong-clad tush is shoved into the camera almost as often. Really, the movie is surprisingly egalitarian in its shameless fanservice.
* MaskPower: Darkwolf's eponymous mask.
* MindOverMatter: One of Nekron's lesser but deadly powers, second only to his presence as a LargeHam.
* {{Mooks}}: Nekron's sub-humans.
* MrFanservice: The men don't wear anything more concealing than the women, and their musculature is drawn with attentive detail.
* MsFanservice: Princess Teegra, full stop and in spades, as she spends most of the film running around in a barely there bikini.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Nekron.
* NeutralFemale: Teegra [[ZigZaggingTrope zigzags with this one]] and ActionGirl, going from crying and laying helplessly to [[ImprovisedWeapon stabbing people with sticks]] or throwing knives into their hearts (and then standing by, watching her sort-of boyfriend get the crap kicked out of him for a minute).
* OlderSidekick: Darkwolf, to Larn.
* OneMillionBC: For all it's worth, cavemen riding pterosaurs and everything.
%%* PhysicalGod: [[spoiler:Darkwolf's face]] shows up in some ancient ruins...
* PunchClockVillain: The Sub-Humans who serve as Nekron's army appear to be this at the very end where, after the main villains are all dead, Larn is about to kill one by bashing his head in with a rock but instead of fighting back the sub-human cowers in fear and holds up his hands, crying out as if begging for mercy. Possibly cowardice, or possibly they were roped into doing the dirty work of the BigBad against their will.
* RasputinianDeath: The forest sorceress is stabbed, set on fire, and then lingers for a while as a talking skeleton before finally crumbling to dust.
%%* RavenHairIvorySkin: Teegra.
* RedShirt: The soldiers of Teegra's kingdom.
* {{Rotoscoping}}: The style is very similar to Ralph Bakshi's adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/TheLordOfTheRings''.
* SacrificialLion: Teegra's brother. He falls before Nekron while trying to save his sister.
* ScreamingWarrior: Darkwolf
-->'''Darkwolf:''' '''''[[SayMyName NEEEEKRROOOOOOONN!!!!]]'''''
* ShirtlessScene: Basically the whole movie.
* ShowSomeLeg: How Teegra escapes her captors the first time round. She bathes in a lake in an alluring fashion, whilst the sub-humans watch, before slinking below the water and swimming off.
* SissyVillain: Nekron. Surprisingly, he's quite a capable swordsman despite this, and [[BloodKnight loves the idea]] of a WorthyOpponent.
* {{Slurpasaur}}: Surprisingly, an animated example. The giant lizard that wipes out the first party of subhumans is clearly just an iguana with stegosaurus plates on its back... despite the animated medium completely negating any need for such cost-cutting measures.
%%* SorcerousOverlord: Nekron
* StormingTheCastle: This happens later in the movie but ''all'' the {{Red Shirt}}s bite the dust.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Both men and women in this world wear astonishingly little.
%%* SupervillainLair: Icepeak
%%* TransformationNameAnnouncement
* TheUnintelligible: The sub-humans, most of them.
* WhyWontYouDie: Uttered word-for-word by Nekron towards Darkwolf.
* YouHaveFailedMe: Juliana to the leader of her sub-human Mooks, after Teegra pulls off one of her (numerous) escapes from them.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: The forest sorceress means to turn Teegra over to Nekron's subhumans for a price. Suffice to say that it doesn't end well for her.
