Doctor Strange The Sorcerer Supreme
Doctor Strange: The Sorcerer Supreme is a 2007 Marvel Animation film based on the Doctor Strange comic book.

The Doctor Strange: The Sorcerer Supreme movie provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Big Bad: Dormammu.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Strange uses his ability to absorb magic to absorb Dormammu himself when they meet in battle.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: The Ancient One.
  • The Dragon: Mordo to Dormammu, after he betrays his fellow sorcerers.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Dormammu is portrayed as this, a demonic entity made of pure magic appearing as a giant demonic skull or half-skeleton in a cloud of fire, taking over the minds of mortals to prepare for his return, and controlling various eldritch beasts.
  • Eldritch Location: The Dark Dimension.
  • Face-Heel Turn: Mordo. Not a surprise if you have read the comics.
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    Wong: We are sorcerers! Not warriors!
    Mordo: Yet, we fight a war!

    Mordo: (to the Ancient One) You grow weaker and sick everyday, that's why Dormammu is invading right now.
  • Magic Knight: The film's sorcerers often fight with conjured weapons.
  • My Greatest Failure: Strange was unable to save his sister.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • A Dr. Donald Blake works at the same hospital as Strange.
    • At the end, Wong tells Strange about a new student named Clea.
  • Old Master: Don't let the Ancient One's old age and apparent frailness fool you, he's not Sorcerer Supreme for nothing.
  • Pure Magic Being: Dormammu. Strange exploits this in the final battle by using his ability to absorb magic to destroy him.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Dormammu is sealed within the Dark Dimension, but seeks to break free.
  • Spontaneous Weapon Creation: A spell commonly used by the film's sorcerers.
  • You Have Failed Me/You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Dormammu kills Mordo for his failure to kill Strange.
