%%* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: He never ages. This goes back to the myth, where Merlin ages backwards.

* BecauseDestinySaysSo: He ''defines'' this trope.
-->'''Arthur''': I was not born to live a man's life, but to be the stuff of future memory.



* BreakTheHaughty: When he fights Lancelot.



%%* OnlyTheWorthyMayPass: With Excalibur.

to:

%%* * HeartbrokenBadass: When he learns of Guinevere betraying him with Lancelot. Lancelot and Guinevere are not exactly proud of themselves for doing this.
*
OnlyTheWorthyMayPass: With Excalibur.Only the blood of Uther Pendragon may draw Excalibur from the stone.
* {{Pride}}: He gets so mad when he can't seem to beat Lancelot in their fight that he uses the power of Excalibur to knock Lancelot on his ass - which almost costs him the sword when it shatters and nearly gets Lancelot killed. Fortunately the Lady of the Lake hears him admit he was wrong to do this, fixes the sword and all is well. For a while at least.




to:

* UnstoppableRage: When he first fights Lancelot.



* CatchPrase: He says "Yes, that's it!" quite a few times after spouting off some nugget of wisdom.



* FriendToAllLivingThings: In a creepy kind of way -- crows tend to show up when he's near.



* OffscreenTeleportation: [[JustifiedTrope justified]], given his nature, and also subverted in a scene where we see him walking toward the camera, from a distant background, while other characters talk in the foreground, having not noticed him. He reaches them just as one of them asks "And who is Merlin?"; he also does ''onscreen'' teleportations.




to:

%%* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: He abandons Uther to his traitors (he apparently feels bad about this when he sees Uther slam Excalibur into the stone with his dying breath). "Merliiiiin! Where are you? Call your dragon... Weave a mist... to hide us..."
* VisibleInvisibility



* TheCavalry: When he shows up at the end.
* DeathByAdaptation: He has the more satisfying fate of dying in battle reunited with Arthur, instead of outliving him and [[TheAtoner atoning for the rest of his life]] as a monk.



* TheDragon: He could arguably be seen as a heroic version for King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.



%%* KnightInShiningArmor

to:

%%* KnightInShiningArmor* KnightInShiningArmor: In his first scene, his armor is buffed almost to a mirror finish.
* TheLancer: To Arthur (naturally).



* MrFanservice: He just can't seem to keep his clothes on when he's alone in the woods at night.



* OneManArmy: The reason he's the best Knight of the Round Table.



* RedemptionEqualsDeath: He redeems himself for one last battle.
%%* TragicHero



%%* CreepyChild

to:

%%* CreepyChild* BreastPlate: Her armor, which looks like a sheet-iron corset ''with nothing under it''.
* BrotherSisterIncest: Between her and Arthur, resulting in the birth of Mordred.
* CreepyChild: She knows at once that her father is dead. Then she watches, silently, as her mother and not-father have sex.
* DeathByAdaptation: Usually, her death is usually left unmentioned, and is often identified as one of the women who take Arthur away by boat. Here, she's killed by Mordred.



* MsFanservice: Some of her outfits are...interesting.



%%* CreepyChild

to:

%%* CreepyChild* CreepyChild: As a boy tempts Grail knights to their seduction at Morgana's hand, or to their deaths.
* TheDragon: To Morgana.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilSoundsDeep: As an adult, he has a boyish face and a surprisingly deep and harsh voice.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverMyFault: After his fall he preaches against Arthur and his knights, claiming they abandoned the people to pestilence and death, conveniently ignoring that this only happened ''because he slept with the king's wife.''
