* MoodMotif: Several, including ones that indicate when Gunther or his father are around, and a romantic violin motif used for Rake and Pepper.

* 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 (apart from when Gunther and Dragon and a dung-fight). Apparently, dragon manure makes very good fertilizer. Dragon isn't incredibly shy about where he does it, either. The concept of a bathroom is completely foreign to him.

* NeverSayDie: Surprisingly, averted in a show that is almost violence-free and is supposed to be acceptable for ''kindergarteners'' to watch. Characters use the words "kill," "death," and "died" freely.

* BelligerentSexualTension: Subverted with Jane and Gunther, who are always arguing but are explicitly shown in one episode to not have feelings for each other (contrary to the cast's beliefs).

A [[AllCGICartoon CGI cartoon]] about the adventures of the eponymous characters and their friends, in the castle of the kingdom of Kippernia. Set in approximately the 800's, Jane is in training to become the first female knight ever. She gained the position at the age of ten when a dragon kidnapped the crown prince and she rescued him, finding out in the process that Dragon meant no harm, and thought that the prince was a key part of solving the dragon runes on his cave. After she returned with Prince Cuthbert and Dragon, King Caradoc allowed her to become a squire, which she had trained in secret for months beforehand.

** In one episode, Jane finds the tomb of who she believes is the real King Caradoc. She doesn't outright state it, but it can be interpreted that she suspects the current king murdered his brother and took the crown and his name.
*** [[spoiler: She turns out to be mistaken about this, though and it turns out he took the name from his brother who died at an early age.]]

* 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.

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.
