* LastLousyPoint: In three different varieties (Skill, Wisdom, and Soul). Soul is easy enough to max out just by doing every good deed you can think of, but Wisdom requires you to ask some pretty esoteric questions in unusual areas; and on top of Skill being tied to your difficulty level (see Easy Mode Mockery above), a bug makes it impossible to max out.

* CoolHelmet: The Saracen provides one for Arthur, as shown on the game box. And Arthur had better accept it, [[OffWithHisHead or else...]]

* PermanentlyMissableContent:
** Don't leave Camelot until you have everything. The jerks at the portcullis will NOT let you back in.
** There are two ways to cross the frozen lake without falling in, one of which involves a one-use item, the rose. If you use up the rose to cross the lake but haven't already obtained the plot-important item you need on the other side (found in a completely different area[[note]]though Launcelot will give you a hint about what it is if you gave gold to Mithras before leaving Camelot[[/note]]) you'll be sent back across the lake to get it. And now your rose is gone, and the only other way across the ice is with that item you were supposed to get before coming here. [[SaveScumming Better hope you have a recent save]]!
* PointOfNoReturn: Exiting Camelot, sailing to Gaza, entering Jerusalem, and entering the Catacombs. Since this is Sierra, each one makes it possible to [[PermanentlyMissableContent permanently miss]] something [[UnwinnableByDesign important]].

* 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.
