* AnachronismStew: As would be expected in a King Arthur/Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings/Indiana Jones/Doctor Who/Scooby-Doo/World of Warcraft crossover.

* CommieNazis: The "russian woman from indian Jones and the crystal skull" is in charge of a group of Nazis, presumably the result of the author misinterpreting [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull the film]] or conflating it with [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade the third one]].
* CrazyPrepared: Indian Jones, in order to keep up with the magical powers employed by the other heroes, seems to develop the ability to pull anything out of his pockets.



* DramaticReading: By Tropers/ManWithoutABody, Part 1 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dj7LvAyq9Kk here]].

* MidSeasonUpgrade: Partway through the first story, the anti-Drak Ones
weapon to destroy is completed and provides everybody with new weapons. King Arthur gets a "magic [[InherentlyFunnyWords exabluber]]". Seeing as he already has "an excalibur" before this and uses it multiple times, [[FridgeLogic the Drak/Dark Ones, but it isn't really ever explained why original Excalibur apparently wasn't magical]].

The Quest for the Holey Grail (yes, Holey) is a ridiculous multi-fandom crossover written by KingAurthr (later known as KingAurthr2), a mysterious figure who appears to be approx. six and a half years old, and rife with major spelling, grammar, and plot mistakes.
