* DubNameChange : Subverted in that it's the original and not a dub, but of course, all the characters have the French version of their name. Guinevere/Guenièvre, Bors/Bohort, Leodagrance/Léodagan, Percival/Perceval, Gwaine/Gauvain, Ygraine/Ygerne...
** Karadoc is a dated translation of Galahad, however many doubt it'd be him, especially considering that [[AdaptationInducedPlothole Percival and him are the same age]]. Of course, the genealogy changes are fully embraced.
** Averted with some characters like Arthur, Lancelot, Merlin, Uther, the Lady of the Lake [[spoiler: Vivian]] or King Loth whose names are the same in both English and French, if pronounced differently.

embraced. Averted with some characters like Arthur, Lancelot, Merlin, Uther, the Lady of the Lake [[spoiler: Vivian]] [[spoiler:(Vivian)]] or King Loth whose names are the same in both English and French, if pronounced differently.



* {{Foreshadowing}}: In season 5, after Arthur has put Excalibur back in the stone, he comes back to find Queen Guenièvre complaining that he is not the King anymore, since he doesn't have the magic sword, so he must sleep in another room and another bed, and she will appoint the new King, according to the law. This leads to Arthur replying that, yes, he is still the King, until either someone else pulls the sword out of the stone, or ''he cannot do it himself''. Not only this, but it also foreshadows the moment later in that season, when he refuses to pull it out, there's no King anymore, and everyone is wondering who shall rule. Guenièvre already gave the answer : she will be the one appointing the King (and she will choose her dad, without being influenced).

* 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.

* DumbassHasAPoint: Perceval; for all his foolishness, he can sometimes prove surprisingly insightful. Even Léodagan admits it once (about celebrating the birth of Alexander the Great):
-->'''Perceval:''' What do we care about a guy who's been dead for centuries?\\

** Also, Merlin, while being a ''gigantic'' CloudCuckooLander, can be this at times:
-->'''Arthur:''' Come on, hurry the hell up and heal me up, I told you we're getting trounced!\\
'''Merlin:''' ''(visibly in a massive daze)'' ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext You just inoculated me with half a bottle of sedative]]'', how am I supposed to hurry up??

* GeniusDitz: PercevalPerceval, unfortunately he is too much of a ditz to have his talent with numbers useful.



* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: An entire episode ("Spangenhelm") is dedicated to this trope (along with an aversion of CoolHelmet).

** Arthur attempts this on his zealous viking bodyguard by putting a dagger in his own throat. It fails since the bodyguard is about to have a nervous breakdown and go berserk over it.
