A major, completely unashamed AnachronismStew. Features 14th-century courtiers dancing to Music/DavidBowie and peasants doing the ''stomp-stomp-clap'' cadence from [[Music/{{Queen}} We Will Rock You]] ([[ThrowItIn which was actually filmed by the second unit as a joke]], but was [[RuleOfFunny considered funny enough to use anyway]]).

* AsTheGoodBookSays: Adhemar's "You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting", which is later reiterated by Wat, Roland, Kate, and Chaucer, is taken from Daniel 5:27 in the Bible: "Tekel: Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting." [King James Version]

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: A minor example occurs at the ball, when Adhemar asks Will to demonstrate a dance from Gelderland. He's obviously trying to cause embarrassment, but what he accomplishes is to give Will a perfect opportunity to invent a dance and put up any peculiarities to cultural differences, instead of having to try to remember the dances he had hastily learned a few hours before. By contrast, based on his comments in a deleted scene, Adhemar can't dance at all.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Whilst not evil, per se, merely being on the side of the antagonist, Adhemar's herald nonetheless looks on, ashamed and disgusted, as Adhemar [[spoiler: has Will arrested, instead of facing him fairly in the lists.]]
