* InfantImmortality: Averted in the first story arc.

Added DiffLines:

* SupernaturallyValidatedTransPerson: The nigh-omniscient Merlin tells Sir Ystin that he can detect two natures within them, confirming that they are genderfluid. Everyone else in the setting treats Ystin as though they are a SweetPollyOliver.


* KillItThroughItsStomach: ComicBook/{{Etrigan}} climbs inside a dragon's mouth [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome to cast a spell and make it explode from the inside.]]

Added DiffLines:

* YouCanTurnBack: As part of their centuries-long quest for the Holy Grail, Shining Knight has repeatedly been told by Merlin that they have the opportunity to quit, and that continuing will always require terrible personal sacrifices. Thus far, Ystin has declined these opportunities.

Added DiffLines:

* UnfriendlyFire: Horsewoman shoots Exoristos non-fatally with an arrow after the latter encourages a young civilian to try and sneak through enemy lines during the siege of Little Spring, which resulted in the young girl being captured and beheaded.

Added DiffLines:

* TheFellowshipHasEnded: At the end of #12, the team is tapped to become the first incarnation of ComicBook/{{Stormwatch}}, but for various reasons, the various members decide that they'd rather go off and do their own thing for a while.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Polyamory}}: Jason Blood and Etrigan are two beings who were magically joined together by Merlin, and who are each married to Madame Xanadu. It sort of works because only one or the other can inhabit the human plane of existence at a given time; the one who isn't on the human plane ends up in Hell during that time.

Added DiffLines:

* NotUsingTheZWord: Robert Venditti's first storyline involves a horde of bloodsucking undead lead by the BigBad from ''ComicBook/IVampire'', but because it's set in 11th century Western Europe, none of the characters know the word "vampire".

Added DiffLines:

* MistakenForProstitute: A young girl sees [[HotAmazon Exoristos]] and says she "dresses like a tart" and Exoristos not only thanks her but asks [[IsItSomethingYouEat if it's some sort of pastry]].

Added DiffLines:

* KillItThroughItsStomach: ComicBook/{{Etrigan}} climbs inside a dragon's mouth [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome to cast a spell and make it explode from the inside.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DinosaursAreDragons: Played with; the characters ''call'' the [[BuffySpeak big lizardy creatures]] dragons, because it's [[DarkAgeEurope The Dark Ages]], but to the audience they're clearly dinosaurs with no draconic characteristics at all.
** Also worth noting that they make a distinction between "true dragons" (dinosaurs) and "heraldic dragons" (the fire breathing flying ones, presumably. The only "heraldic dragons" we see are mechanical).
