Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: The last episode has moments of this. Notably when [[spoiler:Widdimir brings Dogtanian the poison wine and Dogtanian attempts to persuade Widdimir to drink it as well. When Widdimir refuses, Dogtanian orders his servant Planchet to restrain Widdimir so Dogtanian can force-feed him the poison.]]
** It wouldn't be so bad if it was over quickly, but [[spoiler:[[IneffectualSympatheticVillain compared to his usual behavior]] Widdimir actually holds out for an impressive length of time before breaking, to the point where Dogtanian orders Planchet to ''force Widdimir's mouth open''. Even then, Widdimir doesn't make it easy for either of them.]]
** Plus, there really is no reason ''at all'' for Dogtanian to do this in the first place. Thanks to [[spoiler:Count Rochefort]], he already knows that [[spoiler:the wine is poisoned. Forcing Widdimir to break and confess what Dogtanian already knows is sliding toward ForTheEvulz territory.]]
** And let's not forget the aftermath of that incident, which leads to [[spoiler:Widdimir seriously considering suicide, to the point where he actually uncorks the bottle of poison wine and brings it up to his mouth to drink. Granted he gets over this reasonably quickly, but that's still some pretty dark stuff for a kid's cartoon.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Count Rochefort, especially in the final episode. Although a loyal servant of Richelieu, when [[spoiler:Richelieu enthusiastically agrees to Widdimir's suggestion that they poison Dogtanian]], Rochefort is so disgusted by what he perceives to be a cowardly, underhanded trick that he not only [[spoiler:walks out on them but goes straight to Dogtanian's house to warn him.]]

* LoopholeAbuse: Cardinal Richelieu wanted Dogtanian arrested for dueling with his men, saying that he drew his sword against the law. However, he was unable to actually draw his sword due to it being stuck inside a scabbard, resulting him dueling while it was still inside. He was forced to leave him alone after the Musketeers pointed that out.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade / ArtisticLicensePhysics / ImplausibleFencingPowers: In the intro Dogtanian tosses an apple into the air with the point of his sword and cuts through it eight times while it inexplicably hovers in the air unaffected by gravity and catches it on the point of his sword seemingly intact. He then blows on it and it becomes a shower of over fifty wafer thin slices that float down to the floor. So somehow Dogtanian is able to use a rapier (a type of sword that doesn't even have an ''edge''!) to slice through an apple, while it hovers in the air for no legitmate reason, using a number of cuts insufficient to make that many slices, to a degree of accuracy that permits each slice to be light and thin enough to float down in the air rather than falling to the ground normally, in such a way that the apple retains it's overall structure until he blows on it. Right...
