** The Holy Hand Grenade: an anachronistic gag? According to the opening credits, the movie's set in 932 AD, at which point [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grenade#Early_grenades hand grenades had already existed for the better part of two centuries]], just in a different part of Europe (and of course the triggering pin hadn't been invented yet).

* CombatPragmatist: Despite how absurd the film is, the fight between the Green and Black Knights is actually very close to how a fight would have gone in the Middle Ages. The fighters use not only the blades of their swords, but also the pommel and cross guard. Kicks and punches are thrown and the knights attack the other while they are down.

** The cow and large wooden rabbit the French fling at the English knights. Catapulting real animals--which the French ''also'' do--was a legitimate strategy for fending off invaders back then, but they were usually dead animals meant to spread disease, not ''living'' livestock.

Oh, and it was an ''attack'' strategy --the animals flung into a besieged castle-- as defenders had more trouble getting rid of the corpses without letting the attackers in.
