YMMV / Kaamelott

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The last couple of minutes of Book VI, part of the soundtrack of a 1970s French film, Jo. Livre VI is dedicated to Louis de Funès and the use of the music by Alexandre Astier is a Homage.
  • Genius Bonus: Several, especially when you know Arthurian lore. Also, one of the Livre V episodes is called Jizō, after a Japanese divinity who guards the souls of dead children. At the end of the episode Arthur is told that the daughter he knew he had didn't survive longer than a couple of weeks.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: In one of Mevanwi's early appearances, she asks Karadoc if he wants to keep her (and if so, he'll take a bath, now). A few seasons and a wife-swap later...
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: La Morsure du Dace has Arthur turned into a vampire following an encounter with a Dacian (Dacia was the Classical name of the territory roughly corresponding to modern day Romania). Astier went on to voice the Dracula Expy Vladislav in the French dub of What We Do in the Shadows.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • The quote on the bottom, « C'est pas faux... » (at least in France).
    • « Elle est où la poulette ? Elle est bien cachée ? » ("Where's the chicken? Is it hidden well?") by Kadoc.
    • Bohort in Berserk Mode. « MÉCRÉAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANT !!! » (mécréant = unbeliever)
    • The Burgund king's mangled attempts at speaking Briton. "Artour!" and "Couillere" spring to mind.
  • The Scrappy: Even though they're funny, every single character on the show gets a share of hatred from the fans, due to their critical flaws.
  • What an Idiot: Yvain, Gauvain, Perceval and Karadoc are the four horsemen of this trope.
