* {{Badass}}: He's ''King Arthur''.



* {{Badass}}: Morgana is an extremely powerful witch.



* {{Badass}}: Both before and after Gwen becomes Queen. Gwen has shown and proven over the course of the series that she is highly capable of defending not only herself, but others as well. She also never hesitates to throw herself into danger or into a battle.



* {{Badass}}



* {{Badass}}: He definitely has his moments.
** BadassGrandpa: [[spoiler: Gaius takes on a Dorocha without even flinching in order to save Gwen]].
** RetiredBadass: Gaius may have given up practicing magic, but he still has it in him.

* [[EvilMentor Morally Ambiguous Mentor]]: He's accused by Nimueh of betraying fellow magic users during the Great Purge. On screen, he's focused on maintaining the status quo (more specifically, Merlin's safety) to the exclusion of ''everything'' else. Merlin arguably picks up deception and secrecy from him.

* GenreBlindness: When Arthur claims something, you know it is not true.



* GoodIsNotDumb: If there was a trope named Genre Blind Is Not Dumb, he would be this. Best demonstrated in these two lines from ''The Coming of Arthur''. Justified in that most of his smarter moments stem from being a tactician, which makes sense since he leads an elite army.

* TheMillstone: Aside from the problems he has caused himself, how many times has Arthur's general refusal to listen to Merlin, follow common sense, or even consider that someone ObviouslyEvil is...well..[[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment evil]]... made the problem worse? He gets better throughout the show, but still refuses to believe he is WrongGenreSavvy.

* WrongGenreSavvy: Seems to get this no matter which direction he swings in. He either thinks he's the protagonist out to slay the monster or that he's a worthless excuse for a ruler. The guy doesn't seem to get SupportingLeader.



** DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The only good parts of the plans (i.e., getting Merlin out of the way, actually making good excuses) are hers. This seems to be her only character trait remaining.

* TheGift: When Morgana finally accepts her magical powers, sometime between seasons three and four, she becomes a High Priestess after one year of training. She eventually becomes a serious threat to Merlin, who is the most powerful Warlock in history. She is a skilled swordswoman and is always able to get her hands on an army.

** Which is interesting, considering that in the original Arthurian legend, Arthur and Morgana have an unknown to them incestuous relationship.

* HardHead: Holds the record for being knocked unconscious more than any other character on the show, which is saying something. What do you expect? She's Merlin's equivalent of [[{{Smallville}} Lex Luthor]].

Added DiffLines:

** Unsurprising, considering he's no longer charging about and keeping up his fighting edge. As it is, he's not in any discernibly worse shape.


Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: when Merlin is poisoned in season 1, he is quite right to tell Arthur that people are going to end up sacrificing themselves for him when he is king and he'd better get used to the idea.
