Conan the Destroyer

Revealing mistake: Conan and his party flee from the temple guards and escape into the crypt, closing the huge stone door behind them. A moment later, the camera shows the leader (Ferdinand Mayne) standing at the foot of the steps holding a torch. He chucks the torch out of sight to his right and begins walking towards the door. If you look closely you'll see the torch disappear nicely out of sight behind the wall as if he had "passed" it to someone standing there.

Continuity mistake: When Zula is fighting Bombaata, she leaps from the saddle and throws herself on him, knocking his head-circlet off from the impact of collision. In the very next shot, Bombaata's circlet is back on his head as he struggles with Zula.

Revealing mistake: During Conan's fight with the man-ape, at one point the man-ape grabs Conan by the ankles and swings him around like a whirligig. During this swinging, Conan's hair remains unruffled.

Trivia: Most people should already know this, but Sven-Ole Thorsen (Titus of Gaul from Gladiator), who played Thorgrim (one of Thulsa Doom's henchmen) in Conan the Barbarian, was given another role in Conan the Destroyer as Togra, the leader of the horsemen who fought one-on-one with Conan sometime in the middle of the film.

Trivia: Andre the Giant has a cameo as Dagoth, the resurrected horned giant god who is killed by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the final battle.

Trivia: While everybody's voice was overdubbed here-and-there in "Conan the Destroyer," it is the prolific character actor Tracey Walters (as the thief, Malak) who holds the distinction of being totally overdubbed throughout the entire movie, because the boom microphones couldn't pick up his soft, nasal voice.

Princess Jehnna: After we return to Shadizar, what will you do?
Conan: I'll find my kingdom, and a queen to sit beside me.
Princess Jehnna: What kingdom?
Conan: The promise I was kingdomed-no...the kingdom I was promised.
