* AnachronismStew: In the film, the Burgundians are in conflict with the king of France, whereas Godefroy is faithful to him. The medieval part of the film is set in 1123 in the reign of Louis VI the Fat. In 1123, the Duke of Burgundy was Hugh II, who was faithful to the king of France (he fought with him against the king of England) and was nicknamed "the Pacifist", because he did not like conflicts. There was a conflict between the kings of France and the dukes of Burgundy, but it was much later (after 1407, when the Duke of Orleans was killed by the Duke of Burgundy John the Fearless).

* ChekhovsGun: The duke's jewels. Jacqouille steals them during his wake and hides them in a hollow statue, then recovers them in 1993, unknowingly starting the plot of the second movie.

* JabbaTableManners: The Duke of Pouille (Frénégonde's father). Justified in that his daughter marrying a count (lower on the totem pole than a duke) causes him to have little to no respect for the wedding.



* MagicAIsMagicA: Where the potion takes you in time is defined by it's ingredients, with one precise preparation corresponding to a precise time. Eusebius forgetting quail eggs in the first movie and Béatrice adding Grand Mariner in the second causes it to fail to take the drinkers where they want to go.



* CobwebJungle: Eusebius' lab is covered in it in 1993... Save for the neat paper sheet written in marker giving him the coordinates of his descendant.



* {{Gonk}}: How Godefroy and Jacquouille see the ''medieval'' portrait of Godefroy in the modern castle.

-->'''Godefroy:''' What, this is ME?! But this is a senile old man!\\

* MushroomSamba: The poison the witch of Malcombe puts in Godefroy's flask causes him to hallucinate. In his hallucinations, his castle inflates, Jacquouille has a rodent head and the monk accompanying them has a pig head. Most tragically, he sees the Duke of Pouille as a bear chasing his betrothed...
