* AnswerCut: A variation -- after Adhemar compares Ulrich to an anvil, the movie cuts to William, who's remarking that Adhemar hits like a hammer.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadPersonImpersonation: Sir Ector dies before the final stage of the last tournament he entered. William impersonates him during that stage and that's what inspires him into making up a nobility status so he can enter more tournaments.

**
"You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting."" First from Adhemar to Ulrich, then from William and his crew to Adhemar.
** Adhemar does it to himself. Early, he derides Ulrich as having "no style." Later, after tilting against him, Adhemar remarks that Ulrich ''still'' has no style... but then, neither does an anvil.

* InformedAttractiveness: Jocelyn. The amount of praise over her looks is extremely over the top, particularly since she wears a lot of bizarre and unflattering outfits and hairstyles. Not helping matters is that other female characters, despite being just as, if not more, attractive, receive no attention or remarks. Granted she is a noblewoman, while they are a maid and blacksmith respectively, but some find it CharacterShilling. Though this is very much YMMV.

** Adhemar also does this several other times before the ball. [[spoiler:[[His public insulting of William/Ulrich elicts pained sympathy from Jocelyn towards Wiliam/Ulrich, and later on, when William refuses to finish off an injured Colville, Adhemar claims mercy is nothing but weakness, drawing further silent disapproval from Jocelyn and indirectly making William/Ulrich look like a better person.]]]]

Released in 2001, ''A Knight's Tale'' was written and directed by Brian Helgeland. It stars Creator/HeathLedger as William Thatcher, Creator/PaulBettany as Creator/GeoffreyChaucer ([[InThePastEveryoneWillBeFamous yes]], [[Literature/TheCanterburyTales that one]]) and a whole bunch of people you recognise from cool stuff and kind of like, even though they've never quite hit the big time (including cast members from ''Series/{{Rome}}'', ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', ''Film/TheFullMonty'', ''Series/GameOfThrones'' and Creator/NeilGaiman's ''Series/{{Neverwhere}}'').

* SheCleansUpNicely: As a male example, William cleans up twice; First in the scene after he trains with Wat and Roland, his long dreadlocks are gone, and he is clean shaven. Second, when he has his hair combed, and dresses up for the banquet.

* SlapSlapKiss: Geoffrey and Wat develop this kind of (platonic!) relationship, with most of the slapping coming from Wat.

* PurelyAestheticEra

to:

* PurelyAestheticEraPurelyAestheticEra: A story set in the 14th century, but with ''1970s rock music''. WordOfGod claims that the music is a kind of audible TranslationConvention. Authentic 14th century music would just sound odd to modern audiences, so updating the music to modern-day stuff allows the audience to understand what the music means to the characters. This decision makes a bit more sense when you realize that the "traditional" alternative, a classical soundtrack, is just as anachronistic as a rock one.
