Film watched: Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell
The Mystery Science Theater 3000 presentation contains these tropes:
- Annoying Patient: Pearl.
- As Himself: Or rather, the Warriors from Hell as themselves.
- Author Appeal: MST3k's ripping on RenFests.
- Call Forward: When Deathstalker somehow blows his cover by showing the princess' sister a stick:
Mike (using Vadinho's voice): "Get him men, he kicked Tony!"
- I Heard That As: Troxartas, not "Trucks Artist".
Servo: Can you paint my van?
- Mills and Boon Prose: Crow treats Pearl to a meandering, disjointed reading of a trashy romance novel.
- Overly Long Gag: Claaaaaaaaaaayyyyytooooonnnnn!!!
- Running Gags: Many of them are about how Nicias the wizard looks like he stepped out of The Lord of the Rings book.
- Shout-Out: The poisoned milk scene at the end is lifted from Alfred Hitchcock's film. Suspicion
- Sick Episode: Pearl is suffering from ailment and making Clayton suffer along with her.
- Spell My Name with an "S":
(The opening credits show "John Allen Nelson" in a faux-Old English font)
- Take That: The host segments really take apart RenFests.
