YMMV Tropes used in 7 Faces of Dr. Lao:
- Angst? What Angst?: Mike and his dead father.
- Anvilicious: "The Fall of the City", all the way.
- Vindicated by History: The film is now considered a classic, but it didn't do very well when it first came out.
- The Woobie: Merlin, who is mocked by the people — except for Mike — when his magic does not work as well as expected.
