* IncestIsRelative:
** SurpriseIncest: Sir Mordred is King Arthur's son, from his sister Lady Morgawse, although back then Arthur didn't know they were blood relatives. Later, when Mordred grew up, he was made knight and served as member of the Round Table and Arthur's heir... and they were all fine with that!
** VillainousIncest: When Mordred tried to take over the kingdom for himself, he tried to take Queen Guinevere as his wife, even after he was calling her "mother" for quite a while. She ran away before he could get her.

''Le Morte d'Arthur'' is medieval French for ''The Death of Arthur''; it was originally only the title of the 8th and last "book" of Malory's narrative, which ''he'' might have named ''The Hoole Booke of Kyng Arthur & of His Noble Knyghtes of the Rounde Table''[[labelnote:*]]''The Whole Book of King Arthur & of His Noble Knights of the Round Table''.[[/labelnote]]. It was [[ExecutiveMeddling Caxton that changed the title]] to the one that was afterwards almost universally used, presumably because it was shorter.

* ButtMonkey: King Mark upon leaving Cornwall in Book X (Caxton numbering). All the famous parts of the Tristram and Isolde story, except their deaths, happened in Book VIII and have become famous in-story, and everyone Mark meets on his journey accuse him of being "the falsest king and knight" for standing in Tristram's way. It reaches the point of Arthur and his court trolling Mark by writing an [[TrollFic intentionally bad lay]] about him.

* BlastingItOutOfTheirHands: Yes, really. During the fight between Arthur and Accolon of Gaul, just as Accolon was about to strike Arthur down, the Lady of the Lake magically disarmed Accolon, Expelliarmus-style.
