YMMV / Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: When Troxartas is killed by Deathstalker, he explodes. And turns into a pile of glowing green... stuff.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: On a meta sense, Thom Christopher recalls his experiences when making the film. The cast and crew knew it was campy and silly, but made the best of it and had a legitimately fun time while making it. Another story is how he spoke with the prop manager about using a parrying knife for his fight scenes and said prop manager forged the knife from scratch.
  • Designated Hero: Deathstalker
  • Fashion-Victim Villain: Troxartas, possibly as one of the most flamboyant villains featured on the show.
  • Fridge Logic: Oh, where do we start?
    • How weird is it that the magic Troxartas is using to hold the souls of the warriors he has defeated does nothing to stop those same warriors from plotting with Deathstalker to find the artifact that is trapping their souls to begin with?
      • Fridge Brilliance: The magic works on Literal Genie rules and doesn't stop the undead from taking other actions independently unless specifically told not to. i.e. Troxartas told them to bring Deathstalker back to his castle - he didn't specify that Deathstalker had to be dead first.
    • Also, why doesn't Deathstalker destroying the artifact cause the Warriors From Hell to just drop dead right there? They stay in the battle, fighting for the good guys.
      • Unfinished Business. They want a piece of Troxartas for what he put them through.
      • Also it was pretty explicitly stated that the Warriors from Hell were fully brought back to life, not just undead.
    • One of them was explicitly killed by Deathstalker himself long before he came to this region; where did Troxartas get the body and why would he bother?
  • Lady Mondegreen: Troxartas' name is often misheard as "Truck Sawdust" or "Truck's Artist"
  • Narm:
    • The obvious Renaissance Festival in the opening.
    • "Potatoes are what we eat!"
    • "This is going to be a terrible year for OATS!!"
    • "Fuck it! Work it!"
  • One-Scene Wonder: Miguel Angel Fuentes as the one of twin princess' bodyguards.
  • The Scrappy: Deathstalker himself
  • Special Effect Failure: Synthesized bird calls.
