A live action film version, starring Robert Wagner, was produced in 1954. An AnimatedAdaptation, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfPrinceValiant'', with Robbie Benson voicing the title role, aired in 1991. It also inspired a well-received TabletopRPG more oriented towards storytelling than HackAndSlash ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''-style roleplay. A live action film version, starring Stephen Moyer and Katherine Heigl, aired in 1997.

''Prince Valiant in the Days of King Arthur'' is a [[NewspaperComics comic strip]] created by Hal Foster, run by King Features Syndicate [[LongRunner from 1937 to the present]] (Foster's last strip was drawn in 1971), that recounted the adventures of the eponymous Norse prince and his family and friends. The comic came out only in the Sunday paper and featured narration juxtaposed with illustrations rather than the usual thought and speech balloons. During most of Hal Foster's lifetime it occupied one whole page of the Sunday funnies. In the 90s it spun off into a MarvelComics limited series not set in Marvel continuity.

* OurDragonsAreDifferent: The fen dragons in early ''PrinceValiant'' strips were basically gigantic crocodiles who dwelt in the swamps. A much more recent story arc pitted Val against a truly titanic lizard from a LostWorld, which attacked Camelot [[MonsterIsAMommy seeking its stolen egg.]]

* PrintLongRunners: The continuous circulation of the strip since "around the time Hitler invaded Poland" is [[TakeThat mocked]] in ''PearlsBeforeSwine''. Unlike many serial stories, Hal Foster wrote, or at least planned out, Prince Valiant's entire story, start to finish, before he drew so much as a single panel.

** Valiant ''himself'' was this in an early storyline, in spirit and intent if not direct appearance. One reason knights wore black armor was if they had not yet proven themselves, and when Valiant participated in a jousting tournament, he wore a helmet and armor painted white to show his unproven status.
