Characters: Conan the Destroyer


  • Amazon Chaser: He tells Jehnna how he is attracted to female warriors and compares Valeria's force to Zula's.
  • Cool Crown: The Aquilonian crown at the end, once again.
  • Genre Savvy: When Conan learns that the Heart of Ahriman is guarded by a wizard, he immediately knows that he'll need to fight magic with magic, and seeks out Akiro first before doing anything else.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Prays for Valeria in his first appearance in the movie.
  • Loveable Rogue: He is implied to have stolen things with Malak before Taramis came to them. And while he is acclaimed by the population of Shadizar, a rich man hides his jewels out of sight.


Played by: Olivia D'Abo


Played by: Tracey Walter

  • In the Back: His favourite tactic when it comes to fight.


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.....


Played by: Mako

  • 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.

Queen Taramis

Played by: Sarah Douglas

  • 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.
  • Psychic Powers: Uses them to manipulate Conan to follow her at the beginning. She doesn't seem to have any power besides that for the rest of the movie.

The Grand Vizier

Played by: Jeff Corey


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.


Played by: Pat Roach

  • 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.

The Leader of the guardians of the Horn of Dagoth

Played by: Ferdy Mayne


Played by: André the Giant

  • 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."
