* PutOnABus: Ector in the contemporary arc. In the other arcs he just [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome disappears]] from the story once Arthur becomes king, as he does in the legends. But the contemporary arc needed an explanation for writing out a fifteen-year-old's legal guardian, so sent him to Iraq.



* RetCon: In the modern arc, Lancelot used to be Lancelot Benwick, following the pattern that knights who were "of" somewhere in the baseline arc had that as a surname in the modern setting. More recently his surname is Du Lac (because, c'mon, he's Lancelot Du Lac) and Benwick is his home town. More obviously, Bedivere suddenly stopped being female in the space and modern arcs, in order to have a male gay couple. (This has since been further retconned; the earlier strips in which Bedivere was female are still canon, but he's male ''now''.)

* CapitalLettersAreMagic: When Elaine [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/1055.htm describes the Holy Grail]], Morgan asks how she talks so the capital letters on "Holy Grail", "Our Lord", "Last Supper" and so on are audible. Elaine replies "It's a Gift."



* GoodGriefAnotherPeanutsShoutOut: Many, since Paul is very influenced by Charles Schulz:
** Merlin's [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/0100.htm chibi-Arthur]] is Charlie Brown.
** Cabal, Arthur's dog, [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/0135.htm dreams]] of being Snoopy fighting the Red Baron.
** Merlin makes another ''Peanuts'' reference in [[ShowWithinAShow his own webcomic]] [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/0216.htm here]]. Although, despite the implication in the final panel, [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/2118.htm he didn't know Schulz personally]].
** [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/0583.htm This]] tribute to Schulz.
** When the gang [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/0794.htm attend ComicCon]], they're in costume as the ''Peanuts'' gang.
** The beginning of the Roman War in ''AKOTAS'' coincided with [=GoComics=] repeating the ''Peanuts'' strips where Linus is throwing rocks and saying "AndThisIsFor" [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/0821.htm Arthur joins in]].
** In the space arc, Beethoven is one of Merlin's time travel friends, and [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/1305.htm dresses like Schroeder]].
* HappyHarlequinHat: [[http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/1508.htm Dagonet wears one]] in the colours of the Pendragon coat of arms.

* ShoutOut: Many of the secondary characters are based on other comic characters, most notable Elaine of Carbonek, who is [[{{Narbonic}} Helen Narbon]]. (Also, a group of Roman diplomats were based on the actors who've portrayed [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]]).
