** While it's far from the only adaptation to do so, this sets King Arthur in medieval England, about a thousand years after King Arthur is supposed to have lived. It's particularly glaring when "England" is mentioned as the setting--England only came into existence because Arthur and other ''Welsh'' kings failed to stop the English from taking their land.

* CharacterExaggeration: In the original book, both Ector and Kay were much more shaded and sympathetic in personality. Ector was stern towards Wart and Kay, but not mean, and he truly cared for their welfare and actually wanted Wart to have a tutor to educate him, and was even proud of him well before he pulled out the sword. Kay could act like a jerk, but he had a justifiable reason, since he suffered from an inferiority complex and SiblingRivalry with Wart. The Disney adaptation [[TookALevelInJerkass throws out most of their sympathetic qualities and plays up their flaws in turn]]--Ector is almost a 180 in personality, becoming a bossy, demanding and judgemental disciplinarian who is against Wart being educated because it would mess up his rigid schedule, while Kay is reduced to a one dimensional bully who hates Wart for no good reason.

* TenMinuteRetirement: In frustration at Wart throwing away his education to become a squire, Merlin teleports to modern day Bemuda to blow off steam. He returns at the end of the film unimpressed by the sights ("One big modern mess!") and is left amused by the turn of events since his leave.

* JerkAss: Whereas Sir Ector has [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold a couple of sympathetic moments in spite of his cold, authoritarian personality]], his son Kay has none of that going for him, and he always acts mean and condescending towards Wart. The only remotely likable moment he has is when he bows to Wart in the ending, but even then he showed reluctance to do it.

** Both Mim and Merlin take turns inflicting this reaction onto one another in their shape shifting.

* AdaptationalVillainy: While more along the lines of TookALevelInJerkass, Kay is a [[JerkAss surly, cynical bully]] and a lot meaner to Wart in the film than he was in the original book, where he and Wart were only a couple years apart in age and were companions and playmates.
