King "Wart" ArthurFeatured in 1963's The Sword in the Stone
Voiced by: Richard Reitherman (Act 1), Robert Reitherman (Act 2), Rickie Sorenson (Act 3)
- The Other Darrin: Wart has three voices in this film, two sound very similar to each other, seeing that they are brothers, while the third manages to make Wart sound like his voice is cracking.
- Berserk Button: Merlin does not like the martial aspect of English nobility.
- Omniscient Hero: To some degree; this is an aspect directly related to the Seers example below.
- Reality Warper: Thanks to his Functional Magic.
- Seers: He can see the future, and indeed has seen almost all modern technologies and discoveries that mankind would make long after his time. Archimedes wishes he would be more prudent about mentioning future events, as he runs the risk of making Wart sound like a lunatic if he goes around parroting Merlin's predictions.
- Sequential Symptom Syndrome: When Merlin describes the symptoms of malignalitaloptereosis to Mim.
- Shipper on Deck: To Wart and the red girl squirrel, but mostly because he finds it amusing than heartwarming.
- Spinning out of Here: Merlin spins as he arrives at places.
"Sounds like someone's sick. How lovely! I do hope it's serious — something dreadful."

- Affably Evil: Madame Mim is cheerful, amiable, and actually pretty friendly when Arthur blunders into her house, and while he can tell she's unpleasant, he doesn't even realize she's dangerous until she tells him she has to kill him which she says with about as much fanfare as someone saying it's suddenly started raining.
- Card-Carrying Villain: She sings a whole song about how wonderful it is that she's proud to be mad and evil, and she takes "terrible" as a compliment (and finds it lovely when someone's sick—though she doesn't find it so lovely when she gets sick later...).
- The Dreaded: If Archimedes' reaction upon seeing her is of any indication, she doesn't have a particularly good reputation.
- Vain Sorceress: Mim defies this trope. She says she could be beautiful if she wanted to be, and in fact, does change herself into such a form as it it were a parlor trick. Then she admits that such a form is only skin deep and she's happy being ugly.
- Villain Song: "The Marvelous Mad Madame Mim."
- Berserk Button: Try pissing off Ector by coming up with (in his view) extremely far-fetched excuses for ducking out on your kitchen duties, or try to defend Merlin's behavior, and you'll send him flying off the handle so far that you'll be doing dishes for the entire castle.
- Evil Redhead: Not really evil but he acts fairly antagonistic towards Arthur.
- Muggle Foster Parents: To Wart/Arthur.
- Parental Favoritism: Ector's partiality to Kay is somewhat justified by the fact that Arthur/Wart is only his foster child. Though, while he could be nicer to Arthur, he's not an example of Abusive Parents either... more just strict and demanding, which seems to be his personality in general.
- What Have I Done: When he realizes that Wart is the new King of England
- Epic Fail: Kay loses a jousting match. To an immobile dummy.
- Evil Redhead: Again, not really evil, just a jerky older brother.
