* BilingualBonus: The episode "Le Code de Chevalerie" ("The Code of Chivalry") shows Arthur fighting dissension among his knights, because of a translation of the Code; the episode ends on Perceval asking wether they have some rights, only to be answered with Père Blaise reading the untranslated "Gaelic" text. What he's reading ("Qui sor mon cors mete flaele,/ S'onques fors cil qui m'ot pucele/ Out m'amistié encor nul jor!") is actually ancient French; an extract from Béroul's ''Tristan''. So not only is Arthur keeping the Code obscure, [[RefugeInAudacity the text used as the new Code of Chivalry may actually not be a legislative texte ''at all'']]

''Kaamelott'' is a French series. It was created and written by Alexandre Astier and broadcast on French channel '''M6''' since 2004. The show's four first seasons (called "livres", French for "books") were composed of short episodes (about 3 and a half minutes each.) Early seasons consisted of humorous depictions of daily life at King Arthur's court and of the knights' ineffective quest for the Holy Grail; but as the author grew more self-confident, it got spiced by more and more continuity (including RetCon at some point), half-serious story arcs. The fifth season then had longer episodes (7 minutes) and a DarkerAndEdgier tone.

** Father Blaise occasionally speaks Latin (and Gaelic in one episode); neither the audience nor the other characters are meant to understand what he's saying.

** In one episode, Arthur and Gunievre drink a TruthSerum intended for Leodagan. For the rest of the afternoon, they talk to each other with deadpan honesty ("Do you love me?" "No." "Oh. I love you. I think..."), and while Guenievre breaks down in the evening, Arthur gets around it by claiming it was a beffudlement potion.

** For all Arthur's inlaws' (and others) annoying questions on when they can expect an heir, there being one would quite a few problems.
** Leodagan's obsession with building watchtowers all along the beaches makes sense considering how often invaders from the continent end up landing on Britain. Of course, having the watchtowers isn't enough, Yvain and Gauvain demonstrate the need for ''competent'' guards as well, who don't sleep until noon with the shutters closed or let the messenger pigeons free so they don't have to clean up their crap...

** Lancelot, alone with the queen, tells her about how some people don't take mistresses, instead choosing a one woman, marrying her, and loving only her until they are parted by death. Guenievre laughs and says "Yes, but we're civilized over here! Can you imagine, a man with only one woman for life?"

* BeleagueredAssistant: Father Blaise is Kaamelott's priest, scribe and archivist. While he's good enough at the first two, the archives are a complete mess... and are apparently his main responsibility.



** Inverted in the pilot, where the knights (including Karadoc) complain that there's ''too much'' meat on the menu (two legs of deer per person).

** One episode feature a ball game with chaotics and obscures rules, (only Bohort seem to know them and is used as a judge) that look like Calvin Ball.

--->'''Guenièvre:''' ''[hysterical]'' But before that, my life was crap, you understand!!! Greeting the chief-of-this, the king-of-that; always polite, always pretty... Symbol of the Briton Nation... There must be some compensations to all those bullshits! Always got to care of something, especially you because you got "responsibilties", AND WHO TAKES CARE OF ME IN THAT TIME?? WELL YES, now that there's no marzipan anymore, I'm milling around, I AM ON EEEEEDGE!!! ''[sobbing]''... I've got no friends, no hobbies... Since you don't touch me, I can sit on the facts of love, figuratively speaking, so I buried myself in marzipan... And when I look at you, and I see the way you treat me, I think I better go from here to Rome by foot to get some marzipan because it's actually the best thing that ever happened to me...\\

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

* DreamWithinADream: "Dream On", after showing several characters awakening from their nightmares, has Perceval find the Grail... and lose it. The dreamer is revealed to be Arthur, who notices that Guenievre starts kissing her way down his arm, and wakes up for real.
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Arthur]], when convinced by Meleagant's manipulations that he'll never have children. [[spoiler:Lancelot]] is about to do so, prompting Meleagant to teleport offscreen and interrupt him.

* LargeAndInCharge: Subverted, Arthur is a few inches shorter than a lot of the male cast (who tend to be on the tall side).

* AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: After Yvain accidentally causes people to believe Léodagan and Séli are dead (turns out there's a difference between "the Elephant of Cameliard" and "the Orphan of Cameliard"), Arthur gets a great deal of messages asking about their deaths, most of them quite joyous.
