  • Depending on the Artist: David, oh so very much.
  • Ho Yay: David and Jonathan were like the Naruto and Sasuke for medieval Yaoi Fangirls.

    • What make this passage even worse is this story was used as late as the 1980s as a object lesson in obedience in teaching materials for North American childrens Sunday Schools.
  • Wheelchair Woobie: Mephiboseth.
