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...
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • The quote on the bottom, « C'est pas faux... » (at least in France).
    • « Elle est où la poulette ? » ("Where's the chicken?") 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.
