YMMV / The Magic Sword

  • Anti-Climax Boss: The final showdown between George and Lodac is averted when Sybil pickpockets Lodac's magic ring and uses its power to kill Lodac herself, which leads to...
  • Nightmare Fuel: Lodac's face getting nastily clawed up by the panther Sybil, and his neck tilts towards the camera to show us he's dead... then zooms up on his bloody face
    • The deaths of the first two princesses Helene meets. Mostly because we don't see them get eaten, but we hear them scream. And Lodac is right there enjoying it.
    • Dennis and James are entranced by a burning spiral...thing, and the viewer gets treated to a lovely view of their bubbling skin and scorched-away hair.
  • Strangled by the Red String: George falls in love with Helene after spying on her numerous times with Sybil's magic pool, doesn't speak to her until he gets to Lodac's lair, and they're married after Lodac is defeated.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Locking an old lady in a basement (who's your ally and foster mother) is pretty bad form even if she does have magic powers.
