* AcceptableTargets: The French, naturally. It's a British film. Why else would they have that ''outrageous'' accent? Also, the BLOODY PEASANTS.
* AdaptationDisplacement: There are fans of the film who have no idea [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus there was a TV series before it]].
* AwesomeMusic: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHDycUXzNs0 Its main theme]].
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPW9fmhA4-k The Promised Land]]".
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: A staple of Monty Python humor.
** The "Camelot" song. 'Tis a silly place, indeed.
** '''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHOBw6XwqRo INTERMISSION]]'''
** The opening credits' moose dialogue at the bottom.
** The Sun and clouds jumping up and down, causing an earthquake.
* BrickJoke: Meta. In 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 in the series, who appears on set with a huge fake nose.
* 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 by all rights be horrifying absolutely ''hilarious''.
* DiscreditedMeme: The constant use of quotations from it has caused it to become popular to mock people for quoting it so much.
* EarWorm: The drawbar organ music during the "intermission" and at the end.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The Black Knight, despite only being in one scene is arguably the most famous character in the film.
* FountainOfMemes: One of the single most quoted works within "nerdy" circles. More or less every single line is a meme to some extent. Find them [[Memes/MontyPython here]].
** Then there's one of the earliest YouTube [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luVjkTEIoJc memes]].
* GeniusBonus: The KillerRabbit scene is particularly funny if you consider the, er, [[http://www.cracked.com/article_21133_7-insane-r-rated-trends-you-never-noticed-in-famous-art_p2.html interesting]] role rabbits had in MediŠval art (no. 2).
* HilariousInHindsight: The Black Knight and Lancelot are played by the same person (Creator/JohnCleese). And then, [[spoiler:in ''FateZero''... Lancelot IS Black Knight/Berserker.]]
* OneSceneWonder: The Black Knight and the killer rabbit.
* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: The best jokes from this movie have been memes for so long and are so familiar by now that it might not be clear why they were ever really funny in context.
* SpecialEffectFailure: The rapid cutting featured during the attack of the Killer Rabbit doesn't ''quite'' hide the fact that the Rabbit itself is a hand puppet, but it's no great loss, [[NoFourthWall since this isn't the kind of film where immersion is terribly important]].
* StopHelpingMe: Galahad's reaction to Lancelot dragging him out of Castle Anthrax.
* 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}}''.
