* HistoricalHeroUpgrade [=/=] HistoricalBadassUpgrade: Historians have debated for generations whether Arthur was truly historical at all. But if we accept that the "original Arthur" was a British leader who temporarily stopped the Anglo-Saxon invasion of Britain, he has been [[MemeticBadass greatly transformed and magnified]] into the [[TheGoodKing Arthur]] [[TheChosenOne of legend]].

* HistoricalHeroUpgrade [=/=] HistoricalBadassUpgrade: Any historical King Arthur who did exist hardly had access to a magical sword in the stone, an immortality inducing scabbard and fought off any villains like Morgan de Fay

* MerlinAndNimue: TropeNamer
* [[StayInTheKitchen Stay In My Lake]]: Rarely let Pelleas out to adventure, and apparently saved his life by keeping him out of the final battle.

* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Probably, which is why he tends to pop up in modern historical-leaning Arthurian fiction despite not directly appearing in the medieval legends. Curiously, his name appears to be Brittonic instead of Germanic, as it's related to Ceretic/Caradoc/Caratacus, leading to speculation about whether he was part or full Briton despite leading non-Britons, and whether the distinction was even all that important back then.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Not directly mentioned as "Cerdic" in any of the legends, only historical or pseudo-historical material, but nevertheless his name does appear in variants or garbled form as seen above. Walter Scott also misspelled his name as "Cedric" in ''Ivanhoe'' and it has since become a common name.
