** According to Arthur, all the guards in the castle of Kaamelott are either stupid, drunk, sleeping at their posts, or all of the above. After having to fight to the death an assassin that sneaked into the castle, he swears out loud that they have some serious drill training ahead in their future.

** The Weaponmaster and Grüdü guarding the front door are so busy arguing with each other on who should be guarding the back door, they completely miss a bunch of assassins sneaking inside behind their backs.

** Venec, slave trader (among other activities), explains in an episode that he owns [[Recap/AsterixAndCleopatra an Egyptian architect]]. He also mentions he had to give three gladiators to get him at Glastonbury fair. Glastonbury is a town which is heavily related to the Arthurian Myths : it is possibly the location of the Isle of Avalon, and King Arthur's grave was ''found'' in the Glastonbury Abbey.

** The Burgund king has no idea of what he's saying, including such gems as "the flower in the bouquet withers... and is ''never'' reborn!", "I appreciate fruits in syrup", "Not change plate for the cheese!" and "strong in apples". He also starts sniggering at "biography".

* SuddenlyShouting: PlayedForLaughs, with Attila and the Burgundian King, and also Perceval.



** In one case, he tells a Viking allied with the Burgund king that the Burgund was giving up all his lands (the Burgund doesn't speak their language and tends to repeat what he just heard because it sounds funny to him) with this exchange:
--->'''Arthur:''' I'll give you the entire Burgund territory.\\

'''Burgund King:''' [[NoIndoorVoice HE AGREES WITH THIS!]]
** In another instance, the Burgund king is attacking Kaamelott when UsefulNotes/AttilaTheHun shows up. Arthur then tells Attila that the Burgund is in fact here as his ''ally'', despite the Burgund screaming "Attila! Attila!" in a panic and Arthur yelling at him to shut up before he screws everything up. Attila falls for it.
** And in another where the Mongol horde shows up (all two of them), Arthur convinces Attila that the castle doesn't contain anything of value at all, to the point where Attila's demands kept going lower (at one point demanding the table linen, but [[CampStraight Bohort]] refuses). In the end he demands the queen, gets Arthur's AxCrazy bodyguard Grüdü in obvious drag, and accepts "her" as the real deal.

* MagnificentBastard: Several, despite the sheer amount of idiocy among the characters. The main one, and the most recurring one, is Arthur; the best examples can be found in the CMoA section.

* FailedASpotCheck: Karadoc and Perceval are rather oblivious as a general rule, but in ''Le Serpent géant du lac de l'Ombre'' ("The Giant Snake from Shadow Lake"), they take it to a whole new level. While rowing on the title lake in search of the [[StockNessMonster eponymous giant snake]], a huge coil of said monster rises above the water behind them... and they don't notice. Then its tail strikes their boat, and they wonder if they hit a rock. Finally, a stronger tail lash capsizes their boat and sends both in the water. Their conclusion? There's no giant snake in this damn lake, they're just wasting their time.
* GiveChaseWithAngryNatives: In ''L'Armée du Nécromant'', Arthur and co. are climbing to the top of a mountain to defeat an evil Necromancer. Along the way, they come across a gigantic RodentOfUnusualSize, fortunately asleep. When things go wrong at the summit, they slide back down on improvised sleds, hurling stones at the rat as they pass. When the pursuing Necromancer arrives, the rat is awake and angry, and proceeds to eat him.

** There are plenty of jokes and TraitorShots with Lancelot planning to elope with the queen, but everyone (including Arthur and Guenièvre) remain oblivious.

* IneptMage: Merlin. He once tries to cast a spell to make plants grow, and ends up giving Arthur and Léodagan brightly glowing eyes. He tries to explain it via NotThatKindOfMage, as he's a druid: supposedly all his nature-aligned powers take a sharp dive when there's a roof over his head, i.e. in his laboratory. However, his talent as a druid is dubious as well: he can't even read the Druidic language.

** In another episode, when Merlin tries out "modern medecine" instead of magical healing, Arthur tells him it will never catch on. Though that's understandable, considering the best Merlin could come up with was throwing salt in an open wound....

* LawfulStupid: Grüdü (yes, the Viking barbarian reared by polar bears) can follow orders to the exclusion of common sense. For example, when he and the swordsmaster are guarding the front gate, no-one is guarding the back gate. If he goes to guard it, that's dereliction of duty. If the swordsmaster goes, he's a deserter. While they argue semantics, the assassins slip in unimpeded (through the front gate).

Se he does just that... by taking baths with mistresses (he doesn't quite seem to get the concept of a mistress either).

** Merlin once tried to cast a confusion spell during a battle, but he needed a shark tooth, which Perceval and Karadoc had been sent to get. Four hours later at the tavern, they get it into their heads that the tooth itself is cursed and throw it in the fire. Merlin casts the spell with a ferret's tooth instead, and the resulting missile is so pathetic the enemy army trips over itself with laughter, allowing Kaamelott to attack and claim victory.
