* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Morguase in the modern arc has elements of this trope (though downplayed; she may cut corners, but only because of her duty to stockholders who depend on investments for retirement, and she's not proud of it). Arthur himself is an inversion (somewhat {{anvilicious}}ly so).

* NotAMorningPerson: Arthur, who couldn't stay awake for his son's birth in the contemporary arc, and once spent a battle with {{Space Pirate}}s in the space arc muttering "I don't want to get up." Also Morguase, by contrast with her son Gawaine.

* AnachronismStew: Impossible to avoid in the fairytale arc because by way of GrandfatherClause.

* AnachronismStew: Impossible to avoid in the fairytale arc because by way of due to GrandfatherClause.


Added DiffLines:

* FauxSymbolism: Sometimes strips seem to be written specifically to critique modern politics, such as the strips dealing with Arthur's interactions with Rome or the Saracens. Usually this prompts Gadzikowski to step in and say that it's from the source material and the appropriateness to modern times is totally incident.

Added DiffLines:

* FeudalFuture: The space arc is just the fairytale arc's nonspecific-but-generically-medieval time period updated into space.


Added DiffLines:

* StrawmanPolitical: Gadzikowski seems to have made a concerted effort to defy this. Most characters who express political views are given a chance to make reasonable arguments for their positions, even if they're not portrayed as "right". When not having political arguments, many characters with opposing views (Lancelot/Guinevere, Merlin/Morgause) are on good terms and bond over shared interests.

* ShoutOut: Many of the secondary characters are based on other comic characters, most notably 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]]).

* CoolOldGuy: Merlin in any incarnation but primarily the modern day arc, where he's a substitute teacher who owns a comic book store, has an eidetic knowledge for his favorite TV shows, used to be a hippie, agrees to watch watch Ector's sons on a moment's notice when he's called to active duty, and takes in the orphaned child of some old friends. A close second is the space arc Merlin, who's basically [[DoctorWho the Doctor]].

* IdiotHero: Sir Balin. His every heroic gesture turns into a total disaster. When he learns that Balin is dead, he asks if he's a bad person for being relieved.
