Added DiffLines:

* ArtEvolution: While the character designs remained consistent, the animation has gotten better over the years. The pilot trailer marks the only time Tabaluga was animated with hand-painted cels. When the series got greenlit, the Yoram Gross Film Studio decided on digital ink and paint with the UK's Animo software. (It's also the first Yoram Gross series, along with Samuel & Nina to use this technique.)

Added DiffLines:

* HarmlessFreezing: Being frozen in a block of ice by Arctos has no ill effects on Leo. Granted, he was thawed out by Tabaluga less than a minute later.
* HumanPopsicle: Shortly after arriving in Tabaluga's world, Leo is confronted and frozen solid by Arctos. Good thing Tabaluga was nearby and came to his aid.

Added DiffLines:

** To put it straight, despite being the BigBad of the franchise and Tabaluga's (and his ancestors) arch-nemesis, Arktos is far from the most dangerous threat/ most evil villain that Tabaluga faces. [[spoiler: That is, until the last episode of Season 3, where Arktos does manage to get a hold of dragon's pendant and use to it to make Tabaluga completely powerless.]]


* TheChick: Happy.



* EvilerThanThou: In the very first episode he comes in, Humsin immediately pulls it on Arktos who seeks allegiance with him, and shows him who now is the main villain.
** In Season 3, Queen Isadora pulls it on Arktos. He falls in love with her and she uses his love for her to make a potion for her that would make her more powerful and suck the power out of him in the process.



* InterimVillain: Humsin in Season 2. While Arktos still prominently appears in Season 2, he has been reduced to a IneffectualSympatheticVillain who mostly just whines about not being able to conquer Greenland (and sometimes even teaming up with Greenlanders against Humsin, albeit for his own benefits) and Humsin is the real threat to Greenlanders. However, since Humsin dies in the end of Season 2, Arktos has his status as the main villain restored, though he is still quite incompetent and not as cunning as he was in Season 1.
* TheJeeves: James.



* TheMentor: Nessaja, Shouhou ''and'' Tyrion. If Tabaluga would listen to them...
* TheMovie: A movie adaption titled "Tabaluga and Leo" was released in 2005. It served as the show's ChristmasEpisode.
