* StoppedReadingTooSoon: Arthur goes to Merlin to ask for an energizing potion because he's feeling down lately. Merlin looks for the potion and tells him to drink it. Arthur asks if he's sure, Merlin replies that yes, it says "one" on the label for "in one go". The as Arthur downs it, Merlin reads the word after that, which is "drop". Arthur spends the rest of the episode superexcited until the prospect of bedding his wife comes up, which cures him completely.

* BadBadActing: Yvain and Gauvain, wearing absoutely ludicrous flower and bee costumes, rehearse a play for the spring festival. Bohort, of course, thinks it's great, Arthur looks like maybe setting a guy on fire wasn't such a bad idea.

* CerebusRetcon: Arthur refusing to sleep with his wife for the entire series [[spoiler:turns out to be because he swore to the love of his life, who he secretly married (she was already married to another man), that he wouldn't consummate it. She allowed him to take mistresses though.]]
* CerebusSyndrome: When [[spoiler:Lancelot left Arthur because of the blatant incompetence of the Round Table]], the tone began to change, and at the end of the fourth season, everyone was warned that the fifth season would be DarkerAndEdgier. This trope is indeed called "Fr/EffetKaamelott" in the French section of the Wiki.0

* TheStarscream: More or less averted with Léodagan, who doesn't make any particular effort to overthrow Arthur, though he does love to antagonize him in every way possible such as suggesting a skaven-killing expedition in total darkness (Arthur's afraid of the dark) or forcing him to conform to traditions he doesn't like (there were one or two assassination attempts he was in on, but that was a while ago). Once Arthur abdicates, however, he instantly sets himself up as king of Britain.

When he first shows up, Bohort is of course panicked, but after finding out there's only two of them, Attilla's demands get continually smaller, with the cast refusing them for ever-pettier reasons (''BOHORT'' gets in on the action, refusing to give up finely made bedsheets).

* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Léodagan claims Arthur needs to respect the Carmelid custom of victorious chieftains raping the eldest daughter of the loser. Arthur figures he can just tell the girl to pretend, but it turns out the girl took her older sister's place hoping to get herself a man a step above the usual DungAges warrior. Then when Arthur suggest he make her an official mistress and get on with it later and she pulls out a knife...
