** 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?]])

* AllWomenAreLustful: The female squirrels immediately pursue Merlin and Wart as mates, while Madame Mim even sort-of attempts to seduce Wart of all people. The only female character in the film who doesn't deliberately attempt to seduce someone is the scullery maid.
* AloneWithThePsycho: Wart and Madam Mim, with her turning into a cat to eat him up while he's a bird, until Merlin intervenes.



* AnachronismStew:
** 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 Anglo-Saxons from taking their land.
** There's also Merlin's comment about helicopters (see AnalogyBackfire), which shouldn't exist yet. However, this case is in-universe, because Merlin can see (and even travel) into the future.
* AnalogyBackfire: Merlin teaching Wart that swimming like a fish is like flying a helicopter. Wart doesn't know what he means. Merlin, realizing what he said, told him to forget it.



* AnimateInanimateObject: Some of Merlin's furniture, most memorably the tea service.
* {{Animorphism}}: Merlin turns himself and Wart into a fish and squirrel, and later turns Wart into a bird, while Madam Mim turns herself into a cat to try and catch him; during the Wizard's Duel that follows, the two sorcerers change themselves into various animals.

* CombatPragmatist: Both Merlin and Mim during their duel, though in Merlin's case he does it while sticking to the rules. Chicken Mim tries to eat worm Merlin? Merlin turns into a walrus and squashes her. When Mim gets stuck in a tree as a rhino, Merlin quickly changes into a goat and headbutts her into a chasm. Mim then turns into a dragon and proceeds to smoke Merlin out of his hiding spots as smaller animals.

* PolkaDotDisease: When Madam Mim and Merlin are shapeshifting in a duel, Merlin wins by turning into a germ and infecting her with an illness of which red spots are a symptom (the others being fever, green skin and sneezing fits). The disease is called "malignalitaloptereosis".
