* CompleteMonster: The Djinn from the first two films. While [[AlwaysChaoticEvil the whole race is said to be evil]], we only see three of them (only the first two films share continuity, and the Djinn in [[Film/Wishmaster3BeyondTheGatesOfHell the third film]] is killed at the end, so we assume the last two films have different Djinns). Of the three, the one in the first two films is by far the worst, and especially evil even for his race. He sees people as nothing but vermin and toys for his sick amusement. Most of the wishes he grants result in people suffering a CruelAndUnusualDeath. He blows up an airplane and kills everyone on board just to kill one woman. Every soul he reaps he [[AndIMustScream places in a hell-like dimension for eternal torture]]. In [[Film/Wishmaster2EvilNeverDies the second film]], he sets out to trap one thousand mortals in this plane of eternal suffering. And his ultimate goal is to [[HellOnEarth turn the Earth into a place of perpetual death, destruction, pain, and fear]] by releasing his fellow Djinn.
* IAmNotShazam: The villain is sometimes referred to as being "Wishmaster" by people describing the film. The villain is not called Wishmaster; that's just a role he fulfills. He's the Djinn.
** In the second film he does refer to himself as the Wishmaster as a title not a proper name.
* JustHereForGodzilla: You might not have known what to expect while watching the first movie, but as befits a VillainBasedFranchise, few people can probably claim to have watched the sequels for anything other than the Djinn working his magic.

* {{Sequelitis}}: Second movie was acceptable, while 3 and 4 were DirectToVideo sequels made simultaneously, discarded canon "rules", and didn't have the original actor.
* SoBadItsGood: The acting in these movies is... dubious, at best.
