Dungeons and Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God (also known as Dungeons and Dragons: The Elemental Might) is a 2005 made-for-TV live-action movie set in the Dungeons and Dragons universe. Unlike the Dungeons and Dragons film released in 2000, Wrath of the Dragon God is clearly based upon its source material -- to the point at which it often seems as if its characters are simply explaining various aspects of the Player's Handbook to one another.

3000 years ago, Faluzure, the evil dragon god of decay and undeath, attacked the kingdom of Turan. The Turanian mages (with the help of the god Obadhai) were able to repel Faluzure and imprison him.

100 years ago, the evil mage Damodar - formerly The Dragon to Jeremy Irons' Big Bad in the previous Dungeons and Dragons movie - fought against the people of Izmir and was cursed with a century of suffering as one of the undead. Now Damodar is back. He intends to free Faluzure and take his revenge on Izmir.

A third D&D movie, Dungeons & Dragons: The Book of Vile Darkness, was released in November 2012. Hardly anyone noticed or cared.

Tropes used in Dungeons and Dragons: Wrath of The Dragon God include:
  • Anticlimax Boss: Both times they fight him, our heroes have no trouble beating Damodar in physical combat.
    • Well he is a wizard. They beat him in combat both times by being physical, which wouldn't really be a wizard's strength.
      • He was a fighter in the previous movie... His loss of that skill makes him quite an anticlimax.
        • He is a century out of training.
  • Anyone Can Die
  • Arrogant Kung Fu Guy: Ormaline the elf wizard displays a sort of arrogance typically seen in more physical combatants.
  • Avengers Assemble
  • Berserk Button: Don't talk about Lux's brother. Appropriately enough, they're both actually berserkers. Her brother was killed prior to the events of the film because he couldn't keep his rage in check.
  • The Berserker: Lux.
  • Big Bad: Faluzure.
  • Body Horror: Melora spends most of the movie rotting from the outside in after being cursed by Damodar. Eww.
  • Break the Haughty: If facial expressions are anything to go by, this happens to Lux in the Goblin town. At first, she is completely annoyed and unconvinced when Nim stops her from activating what he claims is a trap. When, he reveals that it actually was a trap, she's more or less floored.
  • Camp Gay: Damodar comes off as this in his more subdued scenes.
  • Cast as a Mask: Klaxx disguised as the old mage
    • Less Cast as a Mask since Oberon was a separate character that Klaxx killed and disguised himself as.
  • Character Alignment:
  • Conspicuous CG
  • Covers Always Lie: The dragon on the cover is not the titular dragon god, but an ice dragon the band meet at the halfway point. Also, the foreground shows multiple dragons attacking the city when Faluzure does this by himself in the actual movie.
  • The Dragon: Damodar, not Faluzure, who really is a dragon.
  • Dungeon Crawling: Quite possibly the best part of the movie.
  • DVD Commentary: One of the MST variety, done by actors pretending to be 3 iconic D&D characters: Lidda, Krusk, and Jozan.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: Subverted/Averted Faluzure seems quite amicable to his releaser. Although since Damodar had released him from thousands of years of imprisonment, you can assume he'd probably be grateful. Plus, Damodar said that he wished to rule over Izmir "As your thrall", meaning that despite freeing him, he still acknowledged Faluzure as his master and better.
  • Facial Markings: Dorian has some bitchin' racing stripes on his face. Lux's facial tattoo is much more tasteful, by comparison.
  • Five-Man Band: The party fits just about perfectly into the following roles.
  • Ghost Town
  • High Fantasy: Would be Heroic Fantasy except that the Big Bad has to be defeated with the orb instead of through any kind of combat skills.
  • Hobbits: According to Word of God and All in The Manual, Nim is a halfling even though he is only a little shorter than everyone else.
    • Maybe he's only half-halfling?
      • A quarterling.
  • Hot Amazon: Lux.
    • Lampshaded with a small conversation between Berek and a bedridden Melora.

 Melora: The barbarian is very beautiful.

Berek: You know she was called for her skill in battle, not her looks.

Melora: So you agree she is beautiful.
