I wonder, whe everyone seems to consider Lancelot as the Arthur's Lancer? I always considered Kay to be one. See - he's the one constantly following Arthur from before his crowning and till his death, never leaving him. He took the responsibilities that king didn't want/didn't had time to do. He was constantly criticizing the king and acting as snarky Sour Supporter for the noble all-loving hero - but still followed him. It's hard to find closest thing for an Arthur's foil. As for Lancelot, I think he's clearly the Sixth Ranger. Both in-story and out - he was a much later Canon Immigrant, than guys like Kay, Bedivere, Gawayne, and others.
