** In ''Film/LifeOfBrian'', Brian uses his (Chapman's) prominent Roman nose as proof that he is part Roman. Arthur, also portrayed by Chapman, is historically said to have been [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romano-British Romano-British]]. Incidentally, Chapman also played Raymond Luxury Yacht (It's pronounced Throat Warbler Mangrove!) in the series, who appears on set with a huge fake nose.

Added DiffLines:

* NauseaFuel: First-time viewers or the very squeamish may find the Black Knight scene to be more off-putting than intended, due to the copious amounts of blood and BodyHorror.

* SignatureScene: The fight between Arthur and the Black Knight is the well-known and widely-quoted scene in the entire film. And possibly of the Monty Python franchise as a whole.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: The Black Knight getting dismembered. John Cleese admitted as much in his commentary track. He explained that some viewers in America found the sequence horrifying because of [[TooSoon Vietnam War footage on the news]]; however, he noted that they began to laugh when BK's first leg got hacked off and he was still raring to go.
** Also Lancelot's "rescue" in which he charges into the castle and slaughters half of the townspeople under the belief that they're kidnappers. The heroic music and the fact that he turns his wrath on not only guards and peasants but the bridesmaids, the wedding band, and ''a torch on the wall'' make something that should by all rights be horrifying absolutely ''hilarious''.

* OneSceneWonder: The Black Knight and the killer rabbit are well known and well quoted despite having little scren time.

to:

* MemeticMutation: Essentially, the whole film. There's not one scene that isn't eminently quotable, and several exchanges are considered required basic knowledge for nerd cred.

* TheWeirdAlEffect: It can be very hard to take Arthurian legend seriously after seeing this movie. There have also been reports of audiences bursting into laughter during violent sequences in movies like ''Film/{{Excalibur}}''.

** Quoting The Holy Grail has become such a tradition among DungeonsAndDragons tabletop due to its close association with Medieval Fantasy, that most newcomers become well immersed in the film's jokes before they've even seen it, and are likely introduced to it through tabletop.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The Black Knight, despite only being in one scene is arguably the most famous character in the film.

** The Black Knight and Lancelot are played by the same person (Creator/JohnCleese). And then, in ''LightNovel/FateZero''...[[spoiler:Lancelot IS Black Knight/Berserker.]]
