* ArcFatigue: Some storylines seem to have lasted for ''years''.
* AwesomeArt: Hal Foster is always held up as one of the handful of very best artists to have ever drawn a newspaper comic strip. His only real competition would probably be [[ComicStrip/FlashGordon Alex Raymond]] or [[ComicStrip/LittleNemo Winsor McKay.]] The artists since Foster's retirement have been excellent, as well.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff:
** The strip is ''extremely'' popular in Germany, under the name ''Prinz Eisenherz'' ("Prince Ironheart").
** Also, the theme song for the AnimatedAdaptation apparently became a hit for Italian pop singer Cristina D'Avena.
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: In the early 2000's, a storyline had Camelot ''actually fall.'' The [[StatusQuoIsGod status quo]] was eventually restored, but it took a while, and the intervening lengthy storyline with all the main cast either in exile or in hiding, working behind the scenes, was legitimately shocking.
