Played by: Grace Jones
- Badass: Her debut had her chained to a platform as her captors were attempting to whack her in a cruel torture game. Despite being handicapped,not a single participant was willing to close in on her enough to physically hit her. Upon Conan releasing her, she takes on ALL HER CAPTORS solo and maims many as she escapes. Thats just the start of her feats in the movie.....
- Gender Flip: The film turned Zula, a male warrior/wizard from the Marvel Comics line into a Zulu Amazon of sorts.

- Proud Warrior Race Gal
- Rape, Pillage, and Burn: She was the leader of a pillagers raid before the villagers captured her.
- Scary Black Man: Gender Flip. It's Grace Jones, after all.
Played by: Mako
- Badass Grandpa: Enough to make a man die with just a chantation.
- Cassandra Truth: Warns Conan about the prophecy and Virgin Sacrifice. Conan doesn't really care until Bombaata betrays them and brings Jehnna back to Taramis.
- Chewing the Scenery: His epic narration, once again.
- Mind over Matter: When he closes the mouth / door in the chamber of the Horn of Dagoth while struggling against the Leader's spell which opens the door. He wins.
- Playing with Fire: Summons fire on a torch.
- Retrocognition: He can see what happened in a given place just by concentrating himself a few seconds (picture).
Played by: Wilt Chamberlain
- Badass: Gives Conan one hell of a fight to the point the barbarian exits the battle with open wounds, a bleeding nose, and showing exhaustion.
- The Brute: At the end.
- Cool Helmet: Wears one strangely similar to the Statue of Liberty's crown for the first quarter of the movie.

- Evil Matriarch: She treats her niece Jehnna very well, but it's only in the hope of sacrificing her to Dagoth.
- Evil Overlord: Ruler of Shadizar.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: She is killed by the evil god she vowed to unleash.

The Grand Vizier
Played by: Jeff Corey
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Zula throws her staff directly into his chest while he is attempting to sacrifice Jehnna.
- Religion of Evil: Worships Dagoth.
Played by: Sven-Ole Thorsen
- Badass: He keeps up more than a few seconds in his fight against the supreme badass that is Conan, so he qualifies.
- Praetorian Guard: Of Taramis.
- You Look Familiar: Sven-Ole Thorsen played Thorgrim in Conan The Barbarian.
Played by: Pat Roach
- Achilles' Heel: The key to defeat the Man Ape? Smashing the mirrors around him.
- Ancient Keeper: Of the Heart of Ahriman.
- Animorphism: Turns himself into a giant ethereal bird to kidnap Jehnna.
- Antagonist Abilities: He himself is a Master of Illusion and Summon Magic, which means he doesn't even need to fight you directly. His beast minion has a number of "unfair" abilities as well, such as Intangibility, which makes swords and melee attacks worthless.
- The Brute: His illusion nicknamed "Man Ape". It takes the form of a seemingly invincible and wrestling humanoid beast.
- Death Seeker: Possibly. It seems like he always wanted to know why Jehnna was the only one allowed to touch the Heart of Ahriman. As Conan impaled him, he had nothing to lose and finally touched it, then vanished.
- Mage Tower: His castle.
- No Body Left Behind: The Man Ape's body turns into mirror shards, and Toth Amon himself vanishes upon touching the Heart of Ahriman.
- Red Right Hand: Toth Amon is one-eyed.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Cast the Expert.
The Leader of the guardians of the Horn of Dagoth
Played by: Ferdy Mayne
- Religion of Evil: Worships Dagoth, apparently.
Played by: André the Giant
- Bishōnen: Before desperting...
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: The climax has Conan besting him in combat.
- Eldritch Abomination: The botched sacrificial ceremony unleashes him into this form.
- One-Winged Angel: Just look at the image above and compare it with the one bellow.
- Mythology Gag/Homage: Dagoth sounds very similar to Dagon, a well-known deity featured in both Caananite mythology, and HP Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos as the god of the Deep Ones. Robert E. Howard was a correspondent of HP Lovecraft. Dagoth's monster form looks rather similar to a deformed Deep One or even Cthulhu himself. He even has the title of "The Dreaming God."
