* AscendedExtra: Patsy has a much larger role in the musical than he did in the movie, where he had exactly one line (you know [[MediumAwareness which one]]), essentially replacing Sir Bedevere as Arthur's constant companion.

* AscendedExtra: Patsy has a much larger role in the musical than he did in the movie, where he had exactly one line (you know [[MediumAwareness which one]]), essentially replacing Sir Bedevere as Arthur's constant companion. The Lady of the Lake was only mentioned briefly in one scene, and [[spoiler:Guinevere]] didn't appear at all (not to be confused with Sir-Not-Appearing-In-This-Show/Movie, who was given a single picture in the movie and is actually (briefly) present in the show).

* SettingIntroductionSong: The show opens with the Fisch Schlapping Song, a big dramatic number about Finland, where none of the action happens.

* SettingIntroductionSong: The show opens with the Fisch Schlapping Song, a big dramatic number about Finland, where none of the action happens. Played somewhat straight by the historian describing the historical/meteorological climate of England immediately before, although it's all spoken word over music and not actually sung.

Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllAboutMe: "I'm All Alone" is made of this trope, with King Arthur singing about how [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin he's all alone]]... and completely ignoring the fact that Patsy's there beside him as always.


Added DiffLines:

* LiteralMetaphor: In "I'm All Alone," Arthur sings about how there's "no one to share my heavy load"... and Patsy pointedly glances at the mountain of baggage he's carrying for Arthur.

** ...and the fact that this actually counts as TookALevelInBadass compared to the movie pretty much says all there is to say about how non-badass Robin is.

** The bottle dance from ''FiddlerOnTheRoof'' is re-enacted in "You Won't Succeed On Broadway". Just with Grails instead of bottles.

Added DiffLines:

* IncrediblyLamePun: After the Black Knight's arms are lopped off, a monk enters from stage left calling "[[AccentDepundent A'MS]] FOR THE POOR!" and happily gathers up his chopped-off limbs.[[note]]If you don't get it, he's saying "alms" as in donations, but it sounds like "arms."[[/note]]

* ActingForTwo: Just like in the movie, even with the CompositeCharacter effect going on, most of the actors play several roles.
