Western Animation / Xcalibur


A late 2001/early 2002 Canadian CGI television series set in an unspecified medieval fantasy kingdom, following Princess Djana, barbarian Tara, Shogi apprentice Herek, and Wip the Dragon as they fight against the evil Prince Bragan and his sorcerer ally Kwodahn, who scheme to usurp the power of the throne.

Xcalibur contains examples of:

  • Big Bad: Kwodahn who is, for all intents and purposes in this story, the devil.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Ten year old King Arthus, he does improve somewhat over time but the whiny voice certainly doesn't help.
  • Evil Knockoff: Walka creates a duplicate of Djana from her reflection called Nadja
  • Sticks to the Back: In the second episode, Herek makes a magical scabbard for Djana's Xcalibur that grows out of her armor when she sticks the sword to her back.
