It seems to me, or the filmmakers really have no idea who they were doing the film. But as the action, it is very cool, still enjoyed it, though Hitman by not referring to that)))

Dragon Hunters (Western Animation) - TV Tropes Meet the cast Hector Gwizdo and LianChu Dragon Hunters A short two seasons in France one and a half in The United States 2004 French cartoon series that became a CGI film in 2008 The story is set in a World in the Sky originally intended to be our own millennia into the future but later RetConned as being a different universe entirely with a mythological dragon having caused the literal Big Bang Theres a lot of dragons around ranging from minor nuisances to sources of mortal danger and the two protagonists Gwizdo and LianChu are constantly searching for lucrative dragonslaying jobs It can be considered a Weird Thing from France though it is notable in that they had gotten The Cure to do the theme song The series was shown on Cartoon Network on the weekends but as with a lot of their foreignproduced and acquired programming received little to no promotion This ensured that the series wouldnt last on the U S airwaves At the least the movie was dubbed and released in the U S     openclose all folders       Tropes the TV show provides examples of  Abnormal Limb Rotation Range Dungeon Dragons can do this with both limbs and necks It does help them to move better underground Action Girl ZoeZoria Aerith and Bob Inverted In a world that has outlandish names like Gwizdo or Zoria and multiple cultures mainly influenced by East Asian countries like China and Japan Zazas fathers name is Roger All Animals Are Dogs Hector the little blue dragon often acts like a dog he growls sometimes barks and cocks his leg to pee but gets angry if someone mistakes him for one He also wears a dog collar And I Must Scream In Dont Look Now Gwizdo and LianChu return to the inn to find everybody petrified by a Petrovile dragon Hector also gets petrified later in the episode Arabian NightsDays The kingdom in The High Life has this motif overall Beleaguered Assistant Hector ends up doing the majority of the grunt work for Gwizdo and LianChu carrying heavy loads of equipment and supplies pedalling the St George sharpening weapons and even at one point doing Gwizdos laundry While LianChu seems appreciative of Hectors efforts and treats him with respect as a part of the team Gwizdo often adds insult to injury by loading on the verbal abuse Hector responds to Gwizdo by grumbling about the situation Back from the Dead The Salamango dragon can revive even if beheaded if hes slain for a trivial or worthless reason The Rain Dragon will revive from its ashes if the blood of its killer is spilt on them Berserk Button Gwizdo is normally a fasttalking coward but even he gets furious when he sees his former orphanage bully using the other children of the Orphan farm as slaves in his mine One of the two Forrestal Brothers goes berserk at the Dungeon Dragons when he thinks they have gobbled up his brother Beware the Nice Ones LianChu is one of the kindest souls in this universe but you dont want to make him angry Big Damn Heroes Subverted when in By the Book Gwizdo is up to his chin in quicksand and LianChu and Hector swoop in to save him and are promptly caught in the net other hunters set up to catch a dragon with Gwizdo as bait Gwizdo has sunk completely by the time LianChu does manage to drag him out Big Guy Little Guy Gwizdo is a skinny runt and LianChu is very tall Bond Creatures The red dragon from Treasure Rock seems to have bond with Zoria obeying her orders and going berserk when the handsome boy she was in love with smugly dumps her She ultimately release him in the end of the episode Breath Weapon Obviously but not always Dragons usually spit fire with some variation who can breath icy mist lightning sand or simply barflike slime to imprison their prey The Brute Osric LianChus replacement from Farewall LianChu fits the bill hes big strong and able to beat Dragons with just a wooden club but is also a gluttonous arrogant oaf who costantly badmouths Gwizdo and LianChu and eventually tries to kill the former CatchPhrase Gwizdo has a collection of these Just sign here here and here Boyoboyoboyoboy Run for your liiiiiiives and LianChu even gets in on the action once in a while It wont work Gwizdo CallBack The Movie was out between Season 1 and 2 Season 2 episode The Master of the Dragon has Jennyline deliver exposition Zorias real name is Zoé shes the little girl from The Movie and Jeannyline adopted her Chekhovs Skill LianChus knitting comes up in several episodes He even enters a knitting tournament at some point Chromatic Arrangement The worldcreating Dragons were composed of a pure white mother and three sons one red one blue and one yellow Only the Red one is shown as immature prideful and shorttempered Clip Show May I See your License Please shows again the battles against most of the previouslyencountered Dragons having only a few minutes of original story Cool Big Sis Zoria to Zaza who wants to follow in her footsteps A Day in the Limelight Episodes are generally centered on Gwizdo and LianChu but occasionally Zaza Hector and Zoria are the protagonists Death World With all the Dragons aroundand the constant Danger of falling from an Island you may very well call it one Deadpan Snarker Gwizdo Hector also counts Death by Irony Narrowly averted Gwizdo nearly died in the Fountain of Youth Hilariously they rescued him right around pottytraining age He got better by the next episode though Demonic Possession The Scarlet Slayer can possess people and animals to turn them into docile zombies Subverted in The Master of the Dragon Yamatonos amulet simply allows to give orders to Orodi nothing else Diagonal Cut How LianChu kills the Salamango for good while saving Zaza Disability Immunity In Dont Look Now the only person in the inn whom the Petrovile has not petrified is Noble Kao whose eyesight is so bad he regularly mistakes Gwizdo for a little girl and talks to a coat and hat on a hanger Disney Villain Death Given the floating islands all over the place its inevitable that many dragons and villains meet their end in such a fashion Human bad guys though are often seen landing on a small floating rock instead Disproportionate Retribution After the main characters killed a dragon made out of fire it exploded and covered a nearby village in a thin layer of ash The people there apparently thought that was a good reason to try to kill them The Dung Ages Given the time period implied there is no such thing as indoor plumbing they use chamber potsor refrigeration or anything close to modern hygiene standards for the general public only the wealthy The characters notably dont bathe often and Gwizdo once handed Hector his laundry and said it should be done once a year at least Exit Pursued by a Bear Quite often human villains who trick our heroes or try to kill them ends up face to face with the episodes dragon Notable examples include Little Rumble in the Praerie The Isle of Mists and The Shipwrecker A small variation in Farewell LianChu where LianChus Jerkass uncle and his assistant are stuck on the island with a furious Osric angry at them Extreme Omnivore Hectors Big Cousin a Dragon of the same species but larger seems to prefer a rather unusual diet like wood and cow dung Hector is not amused Fat and Proud Jennyline again After going on a hunt with the guys she tells them that shes never doing that again because its bad for her waistline she lost 20 pounds not that she looks any different Fartillery The porcine dragon from Isle of Mist has a rather unique method of flight Which leaves a thick tray of black smoke behind Fluffy the Terrible The eponymous Sweetypie from The Sweetypie Clause an enormous dragon with the mentality of a threemonth puppy Foil The merchant trio from The Convoy is one to the heroes themselves consisting in a fasttalking slimy merchant a huge stoic and gentle giant of foreign origins and a small hairy dragon who speaks in gibberish Foreshadowing Gwizdo does this near the beginning of the episode Isle of Mist after seeing how old all of the Brotherhood members are Gwizdo Looks like rutabagas arent quite the Elixir of Life Fountain of Youth This is the real reason why the Brotherhood of the Dogdalites values the Island of Mist so much Gaias Vengeance The Sun Dragon from The Body Beautiful only attacks people who are cruel against animal or nature LianChu even call him a Dragon of Justice Gentle Giant LianChu Getting Crap Past the Radar Occasionally since the French radar is generally more relaxed than its American counterpart Particular mention goes to Gwizdos Male Gaze on Dream Jennyline though In The High Life LianChu hears Gwizdo and the Princess giggling from a lit window and soon enough the lights are off However for innocent minds it doesnt look too suspicious those two even could shortly say goodbye in such a way Zorias first love pirate Malo seems to be a real Casanova as we can hear from their last talk In the dark of the night before this she naively asked him to kiss her and we can only wonder what followed after that Giant Equals Invincible Averted sometimes giant Dragons have weakspots that make them easy prey while the tiny unassuming Perfect Storm Dragon was one of the most dangerous dragons to deal with Gory Discretion Shot Most of the time when they actually have to kill a Dragon with a sword Gosh Dang It to Heck An example from The Family Fortune springs to mind I am your son I swear to gosh I am Though notably Gwizdo says hell repeatedly in the episode Its a Dragons Life Hammy Herald Gwizdo for LianChu whos too reserved and arguably honest to boast about his skills Prince Charming has one too whos actually a slimy twotongued coward who immediatly abandons him whe hes defeated by a dragon A Head at Each End The serpentine dragon from The Family Fortune sports this which actually ruins the plans of the heroes for taking him by surprise Heterosexual LifePartners Gwizdo and LianChu Theyve been best friends almost as long as they can remember both were orphaned as kids and grew up together at the same orphanage LianChu is the only one who can make Gwizdos conscience work and without Gwizdo LianChu would always fight dragons for free and would probably have starved long ago Horn Attack The only way to kill a Borback is to use a Borbacks horn Humans Are the Real Monsters More often than not some episodes will have human antagonists who are actually worse and more ruthless than the dragons themselves Great examples include Prince Takeru from The Legend of the Rain Dragon Iago from The Cure and the whole Brotherhood of Dogdalites I Am A Humanitarian The Dwarves in For a Fistful of Veggies normally eat beans and vegetables but are willing to make a barbecue out of the heroes when they seemingly fail to defeat the dragon Idiosyncratic Episode Naming Quite a few episode titles are plays on wellknown catchphrases or allusions to other works Desperately Seeking Zoria Little Rumble on the Prairie A Fistful of VeggiesFor a Few Veggies More etc Its Personal In The Conjuction of the Three Moons LianChu visits his now rebuilt village in order to face off against the very same dragon that destroyed his village years ago And succeeds in driving him away Kill It with Fire How the heroes defeat the Rain Dragon Luckily he can revive from his ashes Kill It with Water A number of Dragons are vulnerable to water including obviously enough one thats made of fire and another whos electricallycharged Also two dragons who are capable of mind control Scarlet Slayer and Drago Menta are vulnerable to watersnow which disrupts their hypnosis Knight in Shining Armor Prince Charming Granion While at first he looks like a brainless pompous fop hes shown to be a decent person after all Koan LianChu always has one handy Sometimes lampshaded by Gwizdo Thanks to a single Koan LianChus able to persuade the Red Dragon that he didnt need to gather actual treasure but to become wise Living Shadow The aptly named and nightmarish Shadow Dragon is one who feeds on the heat of people and locations leaving a frozen wasteland wherever he goes LotusEater Machine in the episode The Stuff of Dreams Gwizdo breathes in spores from a dragon and falls into a coma in his dream he becomes a hero everybody respects him and Jennyline is a stunning redhaired beauty he falls in love with The Dragon responsible does this to lure people in its tentacles Lovable Coward Gwizdo Borders sometimes on Dirty Coward when the Jerk side of his Jerk with a Heart of Gold personality gains the advantage Also the fake Roger who at first hides like a coward from the dragon but ultimately risks his life to save Zaza from him Lovable Rogue Gwizdo again ManEating Plant The dragon in Combat spores Dragon Hunters Highlights include LianChu fighting it with a sickle and being ultimately defeated by Gwyzdos salad dressing Messy Pig Leopold Zazas cherished pet Mind Rape The Drago Menta use his mental powers to do this to LianChu forcing him to fight all the previously encountered Dragons and then grotesque hybrids of said Dragons and his own friends MixandMatch Critters A few dragons The Snow Dragon looks part snake part shark the one in For a Fistful of Veggie resembles a giant frog with elephantine legs and a whalelike throat while the one in Baby in the Family looks like a hybrid of mosquito and crocodile Monster of the Week Each episode features a battle against a different dragon by the end of the episode the creature has been vanquished proved harmless or freed Sometimes said dragon makes a cameo in another episode for example the Giant Spider from Billy Thoughnut reappears in Farewell LianChu and By the Book as a minor antagonist Mr Vice Guy Gwizdo usually haggles with desperate villagers over the price of the Hunters services or actually tries to swindle them However his schemes either go wrong or his good nature prevails effectively preventing the team from getting rich and settling down Crosses with Fatal Flaw in that hes also a coward although most of the time hes the lovable rather than the dirty sort Played for Drama in Dragontagious in which a dragon has knocked LianChus sword out of his hand and LianChu is fighting for his life Gwizdo is too terrified to even move let alone give his friend his sword he remains flat on the ground hands on his ears and cries MultiMelee Master LianChu is mostly a swordsman but can employ other weapons as staves axes clubs and sickles Mundane Utility In Hell around Town Gwizdo uses the dragon captured in City Bound as a tourist attraction and to cook meat My Brain Is Big Drago Menta has a seriously Body Horror one bigger than the rest of his body and sporting a fanged mouth in the middle My God What Have I Done LianChu often shows genuine remorse when he finds out hes just slain a harmless of innocent dragon Never Learned to Read It makes sense for the setting and isnt really harped upon one way or the other but few people actually know how to read in this society except those that can afford the schooling or have jobs that require it For the most part being able to read or write isnt needed in order to function on a daily basis in this world In fact most people that sign the contracts are literally just scratching an X on the line because they cant write their own names This is also why Gwizdo is invaluable as a teammate despite being basically useless in battle On the rare occasions he isnt there to do it finding someone that can read for them is a miniquest in and of itself Its also the only reason the guys were even included in the episode Treasure Rock Zoria had to swing by the Inn to pick up the guys for the adventure because she needed someone that would willingly read a book for her though he did try to charge her by the page LianChu was just a bonus for that one Zoria specifically went there to pick up Gwizdo Never Say Die averted The Real Song Theme Tune by The Cure says it as much as it can for one No Accounting for Taste The beautiful princess from The High Life seems to genuinely prefer Gwizdo over Prince Granion Gwizdo has no problem with this until he learns that shes ready to renounce to her status to be with him NonAction Guy Gwizdo Hes still willing to put his life on the line for LianChu though including facing dangerous dragons like the Mimikmar and the Drago Menta NonMalicious Monster A handful of Dragons are actually harmless or even benefical to human if left alone like the Rain Dragon or the Sun Dragon Off with His Head In Whos Lost his Head Now Gwizdo brings Jennyline the head of a dragon LianChu has just killed as a trophy The inn in promptly haunted by the dragon whos looking for his head and eventually reattaches it Oh Crap In the shows intro Gwizdo LianChu and Hector get this expression once they realize that theyre standing in a large dragons mouth Only in It for the Money Most of the time Subverted for an heartwarming moment in The Orphan Farm where Gwizdo not only helps the orphanages children and Mother Hubbard for free but also willingfully gives them the large bag of money they already had to rebuild the orphanage Only Six Faces Mostly averted although some of the villagers are clearly the same from one episode to another Our Dragons Are Different Oh yes Gwizdo and LianChu go after a number of different kinds of dragons over the course of the series and no two are alike With all the variety it seems most likely that any creature that is threatening enough to make a village hire hunters to get rid of it is labeled a dragon for simplicitys sake Noticeably the Dragons who looks more like traditional Oriental Dragons tend to be good and attack only when provoked Meanwhile the Red Dragon looks like the standard western Dragon including being intelligent kidnapping princesses and stealing gold for his hoard PintSized Powerhouse The Perfect Storm Dragon from The Shipwrecker looks very small and lame then you see why hes known as The Perfect Storm Dragon Plucky Girl Zaza Reality Ensues In Dont Look Now Gwizdo and LianChu have been paid in food which they bring back to the inn but they find its been attacked by a dragon and everybody is petrified When they come back with the cure its been a couple of days the food has gone bad and Jennyline adamantly refuses that the rent be paid in stinky rotten food Real Men Wear Pink LianChu is a very skilled swordfighter a badass something of a Genius Bruiser and a generally big muscular giant of a guy Hes also very fond of knitting Ridiculously Cute Critter Agheegoo from the titular episode Even a greedy jerk like Gwizdo ends up genuinely loving him Samus Is a Girl Zoria Also the commander in Treasure Rock Shorter Means Smarter Occasionally subverted as Gwizdo clearly is the most skilled when it comes to getting jobs and money LianChu and Hector usually dont really make a lot when hes not around but LianChu is often more sensible than Gwizdo Sky Pirate In one episode Zoria joins a crew of Sky Pirates whose ship is powered by a massive red Dragon resembling a winged snake tied to the hull Shark Fin of Doom The Snow Dragon resembling a hybrid of snake and shark plays this trope straigth in snowfields ShoutOut The flying machine that Gwizdo LianChu and Hector use to travel from place to place is called the St George Given the subject of the series this a likely reference to the dragonkilling Catholic saint of the same name The Master of the Dragon is a nod to the legend of YamatanoOrochi including having a vaguely japanese village a eightheaded Dragon named Orodi and a young boy named SusAnowo Standard Hero Reward In The High Life Gwizdo tricks Prince Charming and has the chance to marry a beautiful princess whos actually head over heels for him and inherit a kingdom but has to defeat the terrible Blaster dragon Even if the dragon is killed his hoax is uncovered and while the Princess is still willing to marry him shes also ready to renounce to all her money which turns Gwizdo off Status Quo Is God Sometimes the two hunters get to fly home with the reward money but by the start of the next episode they are invariably flat broke Deconstructed in the episode Hell around Town After the duo makes enough money to settle down in the city Gwizdo looses all the money he earned in a scam Faced with huge debts they are forced to flee and by the end of the episode they are again doing chores Suddenly Voiced Normally Dragons dont talk but the Salamango in Whos Lost Their Head Now suddenly gloats to LianChu in an ominous deep voice warning him that no matter how many times they kill him hell come back Its unclear if LianChu is hallucinating or if Salamango Dragons can actually talk The Red Dragon is also highly intelligent and capable of speech Taken for Granite In a rather unusual case Dungeon Dragons hunt by blocking their prey between their long limbs neck and tail before turning to stone trapping their victims in an unbreakable cage where theyll starve and dry to death The Dragon then turns back to flesh and eat the remains Those Magnificent Flying Machines The St George Those Two Guys The Forrestall brothers Throw the Dog a Bone From time to time the Dragon Hunters actually manage to sail home with some gold from their journey Tickle Torture Happens in the episode Desperately Seeking Zoria The Unintelligible Hector mostly speaks in gibberish with a few comprehensible words thrown in here and there The Unishment Played for laughs and subverted in The Grand Tournament the punishment for the heroes consist in being thrown from the highest cliff of the island which is barely two feet tall The subversion comes when its revealed that theyll also be rolled over by a giant spiked boulder at least five times in a row Unit Confusion Apparently there was a decree 30 years ago that changed all units of measurement throughout the kingdoms Gwizdo and LianChu once agreed to a contract for a dragon that was stated as being five feet high only to discover that the isolated people hadn�t heard of that decree thus the dragon was far larger than either of them expected it to be since they had been referring to the old feet and not the new feet Wacky Wayside Tribe The one that worships the Mimikmar in The Gland of Mimikmar Hilariously enough since the Dragon is so fat he cannot lower his head to breath fire at ground level its composed of people short enough to avoid the fire breath alltogether Weasel Mascot Hector Also The Unintelligible and a Deadpan Snarker World in the Sky The setting of the series Wutai As noted above there are a few villages with a heavy chinesejapanese atmosphere The dragons living nearby tend to look like Oriental Dragons as well Youkai Billy Thoughnut has a Dragon in the form of a shapeshifting Giant Spider who bears an overall striking resemblance to the youkai Jorogumo Also The Master of the Dragon has an oriental village under attack from a eightheaded orientallooking dragon called Orodi You Are Not Alone Gwizdo of all people says this in essence to LianChu after his longlost uncle turned out to be a Jerkass who deliberately let a dragon destroy LianChus village and his family because he was jealous Gwizdo when theyre back at the inn with Zaza and Jennylin You see big guy Your familys right here      Tropes the movie provides examples of  Adaptational Ugliness In the animated series Gwidzo is presented as charismatic and moderately attractive The film portrays him as grimy and unpleasant even having him describe himself as mean and ugly during a breakdown Animalistic Abomination The World Gobbler which causes great destruction every time it wakes up Attack Its Weak Point LianChu destroys the World Gobbler by throwing his needles at the beasts eyes Big Bad The World Gobbler CatchPhrase Zoe finds Gwizdo and LianChus adventures to be consistently Unreal Dracolich The World Gobbler again Hard Cut Several examples but the most obvious is Zoes Curse Cut Short at least in original French at the end of the film Gwizdo LianChu and Zoe are singing and the camera pans toward Zoe When Zoes face almost fills the screen the film immediately cuts to the end credits before she can finish the verse on what is presumarbly a very rude word Mood Whiplash One occurs when Gwizdo LianChu and Zoe crashland on the surface at the End of the World and Zoe fakes a Disney Death to find out if Gwizdo really cared for her Then theres the ending Lianchu defeats the villain of the film the WorldGobbler while Gwizdo Hector and Zoe are terrified and trying to save their lives The WorldGobbler explodes Fade to White And then theres floating bunnies everywhere and Gwizdo LianChu and Zoe planning their dream farm all the while with bright green planetoids straight out of Super Mario Galaxy float around The Movie And it is The Prequel too One to Million to One The Red Swarm Constituted of many small red flying creatures looking like a cross of toad and bat it can assemble into a large firebreathing dragonogre Once the dragon reconstitutes while the swarm is separated in several places its head ends up stuck inside a barn the body outside and one leg farther away but still mobile and aware of its other body parts This Is No Time for Knitting At the beginning of The Movie Gwizdo berates LianChu for knitting Later Zoe thinking the needles she found were Gwizdos points out that its not very knightlike to knit yet in the end LianChu uses the knitting needles to blind and destroy the worldeating monster they were after      Tropes both the TV show and the movie provide examples of  Achilles Heel As noted by Lian Chu every single dragon no matter how big or powerful has a weakness that can be exploited It can be anything from hitting a specific body part to using water fire or sunlight to defeat it bordering with Weaksauce Weakness Meaningful Name Tubalard who you can probably tell from the name is a bit portly Theres also Sir Lensflair whose extremely shiny armor causes lens flares in the camera Scenery Porn Theres plenty of that in the TV show but the movie has incredible amounts of it especially at the End of the World
