* InkStainAdaptation: This film, probably more than anything else, has helped popularize the idea that the "historical King Arthur" was a Roman dude named Lucius Artorius Castus, which was previously a niche thing among scholars (due to the major problems the Sarmatian theory has). After it was released, the concept started popping up in more media like the ''VideoGame/TotalWar'' series and ''Manga/VinlandSaga''.

Before the film was released, [[Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} Kinoko Nasu]] was aware of the "Roman Arthur" concept since the true name of [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight his version of Arthur]] is "Artoria" ([[GenderFlip the feminine form]] of "Artorius"), and [[AllThereInTheManual in supplementary materials]] he posits that the mythical Arthur was a CompositeCharacter of Roman and British leaders. But such references were rare.

** Guinevere is also often subject to different interpretations, with her portrayals ranging between a virtuous queen or a scheming adulteress. Another point of contention is her part in the love triangle: either her relationship with Arthur was merely an ArrangedMarriage and she really loved Lancelot, or Arthur was her true love and her dalliance with Lancelot was either only a fling, was brought on by manipulation from a third party (usually Morgause or Morgan), or is cut out altogether to stay true to the earliest versions where Lancelot didn't exist and Arthur/Guinevere was the established relationship.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Cerdic]], the warchief of the Saxons, is a brutal BloodKnight leading his forces across Britannia to [[RapePillageAndBurn destroy all in their paths]]. First seen amongst a burnt out village, Cerdic stops a Saxon from raping a woman simply because such a coupling would "water down" their Saxon blood and promptly kills the soldier when he protests before he orders the woman killed anyways. Cerdic promptly orders his men to rampage across Britain with explicit instructions to leave behind no man, woman or child who can even carry a sword. In the final battle with Arthur, Cerdic sends his men [[BadBoss on a diversion that will get them killed]] and roars they are ''his'' men when his son [[TheDragon Cynric]] protests the decision. During the battle, Cerdic viciously kills Sir Galahad after making certain Arthur can see the fight, having decided earlier Arthur is [[WorthyOpponent the only man worth killing]].

* SignatureScene: It wouldn't be Arthurian legend without mention of Arthur pulling the sword out of the stone. The [[FinalBattle Battle of Camlann]] is another notable moment.
