Conan Wiki

Conan has insinuated his way into popular culture.


  • Italian metal band Domine's song "The Aquilonia Suite Pt. 1" from their Emperor of the Black Runes album is based on the story told in Conan the Barbarian. The song is primarily an original composition, but parts of Basil Poledouris' film score are woven into the song as well. Since the song is titled "Pt. 1", the band presumably plans to continue the Conan story on a later album.
  • Stoner rock band Electric Wizard feature Conan in the song "Barbarian" from their Dopethrone album.
  • American heavy metal band Manilla Road did a song based on the Conan story "Queen of the Black Coast". The song shares the title of the story, and is found on their Metal album.
  • American metal band Fireball Ministry references the Conan story "The Tower of the Elephant", in their song "The Broken".


  • The bacterium Deinococcus radiodurans was nicknamed Conan the Bacterium after the character.

  • In volleyball, an overhand hit with the bottom of both clenched fists is often called a "Conan", ostensibly after the sword-swinging barbarian.
  • The TV Tropes site has the "Bikini Armor" trope refer to characters dressed as Red Sonja.
  • An episode of Fairly OddParents called "Timmy the Barbarian!" was a direct parody of Conan.
  • In the movie The Spy Next Door, Bob was putting a Halloween ornament on the top of the house, and a spy who was looking for him said he was seeing him climbing a ladder and carrying skulls, and the character he was talking to wasn't looking at him. The same character said Bob is not "Conan the Barbarian".
  • A cartoon short film has been released on the internet, which shows an anthropomorphic mare that is a parody of Red Sonja.
  • One episode of the 2003 Teen Titans animated series was called "Cyborg the Barbarian".
