* MorphicResonance: Whenever a person is magically transformed into an animal their face will remain the same. The Wizard's Duel is considered one of the best examples of this sort of thing ''ever'' in animation - no matter what shape they take, Mim always has her crazy eyes and mop of hair, and Merlin always has his mustache/beard and glasses.

* StarCrossedLovers: Squirrel-Arthur and the [[TheWoobie girl squirrel]], although it's a pretty one-sided romance.

* AdultFear:
** Sir Ector frets when Arthur doesn't return from the woods while fetching Kay's arrow, and is ProperlyParanoid given a wolf nearly eats Arthur several times.
** It's probably for the best that Ector didn't believe Arthur about being turned into a fish and nearly dying thanks to the moat's pike; he might have banned the lessons outright for Arthur's safety.
** For Merlin, it's trying to educate Arthur when knighthood offers more visibly gleaming awards and honors. DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything indeed.
**



* CallForward: In the Arthur mythos, Arthur had a tragic love with Guenivere. Merlin tells Arthur about the perils of love after the misadventures with the girl squirrel, and how love can be a greater force than gravity.



* LoveAtFirstSight: Both the young squirrel and old squirrel go through this upon meeting Arthur and Merlin respectively and try to earn their mates' affection.

to:

* LoveAtFirstSight: Both the young squirrel and old squirrel go through this upon meeting Arthur and Merlin respectively and try to earn their mates' affection. Then it gets Deconstructed when Arthur and Merlin return to their human forms.



* MayDecemberRomance: Subverted, fortunately or unfortunately. The poor girl squirrel who is at best a teenager in human years has no idea that the squirrel she has fallen for is actually a prepubescent boy.
* MiseryBuildsCharacter: Ector is tough on Arthur for this reason, especially since as Arthur points out to Merlin, he has no parents, no lineage, and no legacy. The medieval world is tough on boys with no social status.



* OhCrap:
** The wolf when it realizes that Arthur and Merlin have gone in the other direction, and it's too tired to follow.
** The girl squirrel on seeing Arthur about to fall from a tree branch.
** Archimedes when [[AloneWithThePsycho Arthur gets trapped with Madam Mim]].

When Mim catches Arthur in her house and prepares to "destroy" him, however? Merlin comes booming in a magic swirl and saves him, berating Mim angrily.



* PapaWolf: Merlin when Mim nearly "destroys" Arthur.



* RealityEnsues: Unfortunately for the girl squirrel, just because she saved Wart's life, doesn't mean a RescueRomance where he falls in love with her will happen. ThePowerOfLove doesn't work when it's obvious Wart has no intention of being a squirrel forever after being around her the entire time.
