* GoodAdulteryBadAdultery: On the one hand, Lancelot and Gwenhyver's love affair places a curse of pestilence over the Kingdom of Camelot. On the ''other'' hand, one of the tasks that Arthur must complete is to help a man retrieve his treasured veil so that his wife doesn't find out that he's been cheating with a prostitute. Because the man at least seems honestly repentant, forgiving him is a virtuous act on Arthur's part and thus in keeping with the ideals of his quest.

* ArmorIsUseless: Played straight until the very end of the game, where [[spoiler:the thief stabs you in the back if you let him live, but your armor protects you.]] Notably though, the many violent deaths you can potentially suffer all avoid hitting you directly in your armor. Also, you ''have to'' take the helmet the Saracen offers you before you fight him, otherwise he'll kill Arthur with one blow to the head.

* TimedMission: From the moment you (inevitably) get bitten by a poisonous rat, the rest of the game is basically this: [[spoiler: You have to give the elixir to Galahad, give the golden apple to the statue of Aphrodite, pass her test, follow her directions out of the catacombs, fight and defeat the Saracen, and follow her directions again to find the Grail before you succumb to the rat's poison yourself.]]
