'''''Fire and Ice'''''. From their stronghold in Icepeak, the evil [[EvilMatriarch Queen Juliana]] and her son Nekron 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. Creator/RobertRodriguez has begun work on a live-action adaptation, which was picked up by Sony Pictures.

Not to be confused with ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', a {{Doorstopper}} epic fantasy series by Creator/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 apparently keeps interrupting her son's world-conquering to try to set him up with women, because she wants grandkids. Nekron is unamused.
* AmbiguouslyBi: The witch who half-saves-half-kidnaps Teegra has a son, which implies she had a male mate at some point, but she spends most of her onscreen time fawning over the almost-naked Teegra before slipping her a drink that makes her go to sleep and then ''literally kissing her'' while she's asleep. [[FridgeHorror Leads to some pretty nasty implications]] of [[DudeShesLikeInAComa what she might have intended to do next]] of she hadn't been distracted.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Nekron is disgusted by the thought of mating with Teega, and it seems this isn't the first time he's had to tell his mother that he doesn't want a bride. Meanwhile, his reaction to seeing Larn is to comment on how much this nearly-naked male intruder interests him, ''slowly remove his shirt'' while his minions make sure Larn is held near enough to see, and initiate a strangely [[FoeYay homoerotic]] sparring match.
* ArabianNightsDays: Teegra's brother and his soldiers stop off at a very Arabian-looking city to take a ship to Nekron's fortress. It's [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment a bit odd]] considering that the movie is otherwise almost entirely caveman-themed otherwise.
* 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 stereotype) 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.
* BareYourMidriff: Teegra. Of course, it's far from ''all'' she bares.
* BattleAura: Darkwolf gives off a vibrant blue aura just before [[spoiler:powering through Nekron's magic attacks for the killing blow]].
* BigGuy: Darkwolf is physically larger than the other heroes and is shown to be a OneManArmy when it comes to combat.
* BigNo [[spoiler: When Teegra's brother died she gave a pretty classic example.]]
* 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 Larn so Larn might recover from his wounds. Nekron was intrigued by Larn and wanted to prolong their fight [[spoiler:which doesn't happen because Nekron is killed by Darkwolf.]] This would explain why peace and Teegra don't interest him.
* TheCoatsAreOff: Nekron removes his robe before fighting Larn.
* TheCombatPragmatist: Nekron actually enjoys opportunities to fight one-on-one, but against opponents who are physical equals or superiors to him, he prefers to subdue them with his magic instead. [[spoiler: Which doesn't work on Darkwolf]].
%%* 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.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Nekron looks like he's having an orgasm when he uses his magic to make his Ice Peak grow. Especially when you see long, phallic ice shafts rise out of the sea and spew white stuff over nearly naked men.
* 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 he 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 [[Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian Conan]] combined with Franchise/{{Batman}}.
** Darkwolf is an expy of Frazetta's Deathdealer. Many shots have Darkwolf in a specific pose where he's sitting on his horse with his axe held aloft, looking at the viewer. This is the very pose of the Deathdealer in Frazetta's painting. And like the Deathdealer, Darkwolf is a PhysicalGod or at least an avatar of one.
* EyeScream: With a conveniently placed sharpened bone, Larn gives one to the Kraken that was going to eat him.
%%* {{Fanservice}}: By Frank Frazetta!
* FantasticRacism: Nekron refers to Teegra as a "lesser beast" to her brother no less while admitting she is attractive.
* FoeYay: Nekron insults Teegra and has her thrown off a cliff, but when he sees Larn he announces he becomes quite interested.
* 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.
** Despite rejecting the notion and expressing disgust at the idea earlier, when Teegra's brother comes to Nekron to attempt to negotiate for peace and her release, Nekron states that he just might keep her to mate with after all, purely just out of spite and to provoke her brother to aggression.
%%* 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. 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 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.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Nekron is not seen off his throne or even outside of his throne room for most of the movie. In fact, he is a good reason of why this trope and BloodKnight do not mix. He is a blood knight by nature but being an Orcus on his throne leaves him bored, which is why he is so happy when Larn finally shows up.
%%* 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.
* RebelliousPrincess: Teegra resents her royal duties of lounging about her room all day and soaking up lessons from her tutor, her real dream is to go out and help her brother fight. She sorta gets her wish...
* 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.
* SolitarySorceress: The sorceress Roleil has a secluded hut in the steamy jungle.
* SorcerousOverlord: Nekron actually refers to himself as an overlord at one point, and he seems to expand and maintain his territory mostly through sorcery. It's implied his mother was basically the same before he took over the job, too.
* 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
* SuperMode: Darkwolf does this twice in the film. Once when he was surrounded by Sub-Humans and later when he fights off the effects of Nekron's magic. You know you're in trouble when Darkwolf starts glowing...
%%* TransformationNameAnnouncement
* TheUnintelligible: The sub-humans, most of them.
* WeaponOfMassDestruction: The Firekeep have their Lava Flow. This is a weapon where the Firekeep people activate a series of volcanoes and direct its flow with man-made channels. King Jerol is understandably loathe to use it as the weapon destroys a vast tract of jungle, but it does destroy the Icepeak and roasts almost all of the Sub-Humans.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: There was a blonde woman that was seen captured by the sub-humans that appeared in a scene but after that, she wasn't seen or mentioned again.
* WhyWontYouDie: Uttered word-for-word by Nekron towards Darkwolf.
* YouAreACreditToYourRace: A villainous and strange example as it isn't spoken to the person in question but rather to her brother. When Taro arrives to ask for Teegra's release, Nekron admits he was initially repulsed at the idea of mating with her but found her to be attractive for a "lesser beast."
* 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.
