* It is a strong case of YourMileageMayVary, but in the first seasons, Lancelot is frequently shown as a very noble and competent knight, but with an adamant attitude that makes him frequently snap at people he deems "not good enough". He rarely gets more than snarky remarks from the others; which makes the surprise burn he gets from Arthur in "L'Anniversaire de Guenièvre" ("Guenièvre's Birthday") that much ''scorching''.

'''Lancelot:''' ''(disapproving)'' I don't understand you.\\

'''Arthur:''' And you may remember the Queen's birthday, but The King's...\\

* from his debut at the end of Livre IV, Méléagant was clearly meant to be an ArcVillain; yet he kept on not doing anything on-screen except for pettily tormenting Lancelot and implying how dark and dangerous he was...

* Okay, this is a long one: "Lacrimosa", in Livre VI. Sallustius spent the whole season [[MagnificentBastard maneuvering in the shadows and designing a plan]] to get the Isle of Britain back under Rome's control: find a Briton (Arthur), get the "Sword of Kings" (Excalibur), and convince both the roman senators to name him "Dux Totius Britanniae" (Governor of Britain) and the Briton kings to accept him as the king reigning over the federated Briton kingdoms (with the help of the aforementioned Excalibur). Arthur, fed up of being a puppet, wants to get out of this without being the target of Sallustius or the Briton kings, which is made difficult when he learns that Sallustius is coming to Britain to sign the "act of property". His quickly-thought plan? [[spoiler:He asks Mannilius to gather as many Britons as he can on the beach where they first arrived. Then, he goes to Sallustius, greets him, show him Excalibur, and explains that he did it: the Briton kingdoms and clans accepts the federation; he (Sallustius) only has to go to the beach and sign the treaty. He then goes to the beach before Sallustius, and trains the Britons on the spot with a rhetorical trick (= making them raise their hands when he says "soldier", and acclaim when he unsheathes Excalibur). Sallustius arrives, and Arthur calmly explains to him that Britons accept the federation and Arthur as a king, but they want the Romans out. Then, Arthur uses the tricks to demonstrate his point: "I'm Roman? Well I have Excalibur, look ''(unsheathes Excalibur, people sheers)'', "Yes, they're ready to fight, look." ''(go in front of the people, asks them who wants the Romans out by any means, finishing with "soldier"; cue everyone raising their hand)''. "I'm staying king here, and you become Rome's hero because you did what no other senator did: [[FromACertainPointOfView unite Britain back under Rome control]]. Now, beat it".]] The best part? [[spoiler:Right after [[OhCrap understanding he got screwed]], Sallustius tries to go tell the crowd the truth: Arthur is Roman, and a bad one; his error? finishing on: "Honestly, who would want as a king a greenhorn who, not long ago, was only a mere ''soldier''?" ''(cue everyone raising their hands)''.]]
