* DidntThinkThisThrough: Heaven didn't consider that no one alive at the time of the miracle would be worthy of pulling out the sword, thus everyone forgot about it, and the ruler-less dark ages ensued.

Added DiffLines:

* ItOnlyWorksOnce: Adverted. Kay makes the argument that anyone can pull the sword out once it's been pulled. While perfectly logical, the miracle is still in effect however.

* NeverLearnedToRead: When Archimedes instructs Wart (AKA Arthur Pendragon) to read a large stack of books, Wart reveals he'd never learned how to read or write, prompting Archimedes to start teaching him how to do so.

* EmbarrassingNickname: Arthur is called "Wart", mostly by his caretaker/guardian Ector and his son Kay. He doesn't seem to mind it that much, though, and Merlin and Archimides call him that as well. Ector only reveals his real name after he pulls out the sword.

* NeverSmileAtACrocodile:Mim transforms into one during the Wizard's duel.
* NeverTrustATrailer: The 1983 trailer for the movie makes the movie seem like Merlin and Wart are actively seeking The Sword in the Stone and that Madame Mim is driving the conflict. The sword doesn't even come into the plot until just near the end, and the bulk of the film is just Merlin and Wart partaking in episodic adventures. Madam Mim technically is the villain of the film (Ector and Kay are the main source of the films conflict for marginalizing Wart, but calling them villains is a big stretch, since they're both jerks at worst) but she's a side character that Wart unwittingly encounters late in the picture--she is not the films main source of conflict.

** Sir Ector frets when Wart doesn't return from the woods while fetching Kay's arrow, and is ProperlyParanoid given a wolf nearly eats Wart several times.
** It's probably for the best that Ector didn't believe Wart about being turned into a fish and nearly dying thanks to the moat's pike; he might have banned the lessons outright for Wart's safety.

* CanonWelding: Retroactively, the film was established as canon to the [[ComicBook/DisneyComics Disney comics universe]], with an apparently immortal Madam Mim becoming a recurring character in present-day Duckburg, and Merlin making a couple of appearances. ([[FridgeLogic All in spite of the fact that not one anthropomorphic animal appears in the movie's crowd scenes. What are the odds?]])
