* CanonForeigner: Of all the named knights of the Round Table, only Sir Robin is created for the film. You'll also be hard-pressed to find any mention of Patsy, Castle Anthrax, killer rabbits, Tim the Enchanter, or Knights who say Ni in the original literature (though as for Sir-Not-Appearing-In-This-Lai, who knows?)

* OverlyLongGag: It takes an inordinately long time and many patient repetitions for the King of Swamp Castle to get his guards to understand that he wants them to stay in the room and not let Prince Herbert leave. And just when the King thinks they've got it, the guards start to follow him out of the room (i.e., the exact opposite of what the King told them to do), and he has to explain his orders yet ''again.''

Added DiffLines:

* RepeatToConfirm: Parodied when the King of Swamp Castle gives commands to a guard, and the guard repeats them back ''wrong''. The two of them spend the next [[OverlyLongGag two minutes]] going back-and-forth with the king trying to get the guard to get the orders right.

** Launching/dropping dead animals and other nasty things was a real tactic in siege warfare. Terry Jones, who happens to be a historian, pointed this out when he was refused permission to film at castles owned by the National Trust because the events in the film were "inconsistent with the fabric of the building".

* ScalesOfJustice: In a scene a suspected witch is put on the scales to see if she weighs the same as a duck (and therefore floats, is made of wood, is flammable, and hence a witch).
