* SmallRoleBigImpact: When a thief steals Sir Kay's sword, Kay's squire Arthur pursues him and bumps into Excalibur, casually pulling this other sword from the rock.



* WorldOfHam: The film aims for the medieval high fantasy/epic feel, which does tend towards haminess, with shouting as the informal language of the land.

Uther and Leondegrance (Gabriel Byrne and Patrick Stewart, respectively) are remarkably boisterous, while Merlin provides a more quirky and mixed theatricallity.

* BaldOfAwesome: King Leondegrance, played by Creator/PatrickStewart, is the first to declare for Arthur.

Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Uther is ''bad'' about this. The guy really can't make up his mind between being a selfish BloodKnight or TheGoodKing. It gets especially bad toward the end of his arc.
-->'''Uther:''' Take him! Take the devil child!
-->''(like, a minute later)''
-->'''Uther:''' Merlin! I want my son!

* StealthHiBye: Both played straight and subverted with Merlin. In one scene the audience sees Merlin approaching but the characters don't, and when Arthur says, "Who is Merlin?", previously-unnoticed Merlin steps up and says, "I am Merlin." In a later scene Merlin says, "The time has come for me to go," then turns to leave. Normally one would expect Merlin to just vanish, but Arthur instead starts following him and asks where he's going.
