* VillainRespect: While he spends the whole movie against Will, Adhemar has to admit that Will has done well in the joust, and in their first joust he remarks, "No style whatsoever... neither has an anvil." I.e., that Will's technique might not be the best, but he can deliver and take hits as well as anyone.

* GracefulLoser: Definitely not Adhemar, but his herald counts. He seemingly holds no particular animosity towards William and is seen smiling and sincerely applauding the latter's victory over his own liege in the climactic joust.

* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: William twice jousts against a Sir Thomas Colville. The first time Colville is injured on the second lance, and William agrees to have them both tilt and then not strike each other to maintain Colville's honor. The second time, William learns right before the bout that Colville is really [[KingIncognito Prince Edward incognito]], and before the others can withdraw for him William tilts at him. Edward is both impressed by William's willingness to face him as a WorthyOpponent, as well as grateful for the earlier honorable draw; and repays the kindness after William is revealed as a commoner by knighting him. Moreover, he fakes evidence that William is descended from an ImpoverishedPatrician and warns anyone that to question him is treason.
