** For Cerdic: Challenging his authority.



** Tristan brings a crossbow from the Saxon army to Arthur, telling Arthur that the weapon is capable of piercing through their armor. [[spoiler:Once hand-to-hand combat with Lancelot goes south, Cynric opts to pick up a crossbow and fatally shoot Lancelot through his armor from afar.]]

* FriendVersusLover: Severely downplayed, but one could interpret this as part of why Arthur chooses to fight at Hadrian's Wall if one discounts his sense of honor - his choices are between leaving with Lancelot (who comes back anyway) and staying to fight for the land that used to be the Woads' with Guinevere.

* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Arthur and his men don't wear helmets at all in the first 80% of the film, which is odd considering the helmets could have been another means of keeping themselves warm when they're in the north. They finally wear helmets in the final battle against the Saxons, but Tristan takes his off for no other reason than to identify which of Arthur's knights has chosen to engage Cerdic directly in a duel. Lancelot, likewise, has his helmet off when he directly engages Cynric. Arthur, surprisingly, averts this when he takes on Cerdic.

* BattleCouple: Averted, though there was definitely a setup for this for Arthur and Guinevere. Instead, Lancelot and Guinevere fight together against Cynric.



* BerserkButton: For Arthur, fooling his men or tricking them into more servitude.
** For Lancelot: Arthur making decisions that risk his life and being unable to get a better reason than "For honor" as to why.
* BigBad: Cerdic and his Saxon army all advance on the first means of protection for Rome, Hadrian's Wall.



* CombatAestheticist: Tristan. In the opening battle, his kill count via swordplay isn't as high as the rest of the knights, but his execution doesn't leave him a bloody mess, out of breathe, and his slashes and stabs are clean and smooth. Tristan's sword and bow are uniquely far-eastern (Tibetan?) as well.
