YMMV Tropes used in 7 Faces of Dr. Lao:
- Angst? What Angst?: Mike and his dead father:
Mike: I never knew my father. He died when I was little.
Lao: Oh, Mike. That's very sad.
Mike: [very casual] Uh huh.
- 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.
