* KilledOffForReal: Surprisingly often.
* KingArthur: Duh
* KnightInShiningArmor: Played with. The state of the knights' armor [[TheFisherKing tends to reflect the state of the realm]], and shines brightest when Arthur is at the height of his power.

* ArmorIsUseless: [[AvertedTrope Averted]], at least some of the time; fully armored knights in the movie often have to really pound the hell out of each other to have any effect.



* KnightInShiningArmor: Averted at the beginning of the movie, where the armors are more dark and matte than shiny, then played straight after the first encounter with Lancelot, but they do get rusty later.
** Another facet of the FisherKing aspect. The better Arthur's doing, the shinier the armor.

** But there's no bigger ham than Merlin.
*** Except Uther Pendragon. You have to think of the ham-to-line ratio.



* StormingTheCastle: Averted, subverted, then averted again!
** The subversion happens when Arthur storms into a castle which is already being stormed, precisely in order to stop said storming.

** And then Guinevere and Lancelot fool around in the woods, leaving Arthur heartbroken by their betrayal. Devastated but unwilling to kill his wife and best friend, he slams Excalibur into the ground between them so that when they wake up in the morning they both know they've just royally screwed up the kingdom. Lancelot in particular is very ashamed of himself for betraying Arthur's trust, as seen by the fact that he did ''not'' take care of himself as the years went by.

* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler: Merlin tricks Morgana into using the Charm of Making to drive him away which depletes her magical power and strips her of her youthful beauty and produces an eerie fog over the land out of the breath of the dragon. When Mordred comes to investigate, he kills Morgana and the fog assists the small number of Arthur's army against Mordread's larger force.]]
