* BadassDecay: Probably for a good measure, but definitely PlayedForLaughs. Galahad originally was TheAce with IncorruptiblePurePureness, being the one who discovered the Holy Grail. Here, he's just as wacky as the rest of the cast, as well as not surviving the Bridge of Death.

And [[NotSoAboveItAll he was thinking to 'discard' his pureness in Castle Anthrax]] if Lancelot did not interfere.

** It has been [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut#Origin.2C_domestication.2C_and_dispersal suggested with complete seriousness]] that coconuts really did migrate naturally. The claim is heavily disputed, but just being ''plausible'' is hilarious even if it's not true.

** 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.

* 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''.
