* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Jester and Smithy. Pepper and Rake are borderline examples, along with Gunther, which, according to WordOfGod was chosen because it means warrior.

** This could also be a subtle case of ShownTheirWork; in most of Medieval Europe, twelve years was the age of majority, though the lack of anyone older suggests the above.



* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Sir Ivan's response to being humiliated by Jester is to prepare every weapon he can in two days and take ''all of them'' to the duel.

* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Sir Ivan's response to being humiliated by Jester is to prepare every weapon he can in two days and take ''all of them'' to the duel. Then Jester derails the whole thing by declaring a duel of ''wits'' ([[LoopholeAbuse the rules are somewhat unclear as to what a "weapon" is]]), the one thing Sir Ivan is [[DumbMuscle somewhat lacking]].

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Jane was way too hasty to make the deal with the King in the first episode. As King Caradoc never got a chance to state his opinion on Pepper's problem. Seeing as he had a look of interest on his face the entire time she was telling him about Pepper's woes. If she waited a minute he probably would have agreed with her. Even he implied that she was going too far with her deal.

The show is notable for having [[MultipleDemographicAppeal unusually sophisticated characters, storytelling, and dialogue]] for a cartoon that most sources consider suitable for ''five-year-olds.'' The CGI, developed by the [[Creator/{{WETA}} same studio]] behind ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' and ''Film/KingKong2005'', utilizes motion-capture technology and is almost free of the usual clumsiness that plagues other CGI series. The characters have realistic expressions and gestures and only occasionally dip into the UncannyValley.

* NobodyPoops: Averted; Dragon ''does'' defecate (rather abundantly too if the reactions of characters that see his leavings are any indication). Though it is never explicitly seen on camera, apparently dragon manure makes very good fertilizer.

* TheGhost: When the Queen's royal portrait is vandalized. King Carradoc states that the "Court Wizard" is in process of repairing it. This wizard is never seen, and is never mentioned again. It could also fall into TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter.

* FiveManBand
** TheHero: Jane
** TheLancer: Dragon
** TheBigGuy: Smithy
** TheSmartGuy: Jester
** TheChick: Pepper, Rake
*** Dragon also has obvious [[TheBigGuy Big Guy]] [[BoisterousBruiser traits]].
*** If you want to include Gunther, he has [[TheLancer Lancer]] tendencies; he is a foil for TheHero, has somewhat shaky morals, and also [[IneffectualLoner lacks people skills]].



* MultipleDemographicAppeal: Probably one of the most noteworthy examples. For the young target audience, the show has neat 3D animation, minimal violence, good role models, and a big, friendly ([[BerserkButton usually]]) dragon. For their parents or curious 20-year-old parties, it has complex and realistic characters with believable problems, plots and dialogue that dodge predictability, sophisticated vocabulary, and genuine emotion with a hint of romance.

%% I'm figuring this is the trope in-universe. It's the Jane the knight refusing the dress.
