The Protagonist of the film. She dreams of being a knight of the Round Table and goes on a quest to find the stolen Excalibur.
- Action Girl: This trope is heavily downplayed. She's not nearly knight material like she talks herself up to be, because she is just a normal teenage girl without any combat training. Keep in mind, she did awesome moments in the film: Attempting to whack Ruber with a mace (but he grabs it), saving the injured Garrett by jerking one of the thorn creatures giant hand on Ruber and his gang, sweeping a mook's legs while tied up and saving Arthur in the climax by knocking Ruber away with a wooden beam.
- Boundand Gagged: One of Rubers men does this to her, but thankfully Bladebeak frees her.
- Damsel in Distress: When she is captured by Rubers men during the raid of the village and again in the last third of the film. Counts as funny when she questions her mother earlier in the film:Kayley: What is a damsel anyway?
- Death Glare: She gives one to Garrett when he wants her to be quiet. Later in the climax, both Kayley and Garrett gave one to Ruber before they dodge away from Ruber's strike.
- Genki Girl: Kayley is high-spirited and energetic.
- Heroic BSoD: Kayley, as a young girl, goes through a brief funk when her father is killed by Ruber. She perks up by trying to keep his memory alive.
- Heroic Wannabe: Her goal is to be a dashing and heroic knight like her father, but she has no skills or talent for it. When she starts her quest, her only asset is courage (or maybe bullheadedness).
- "I Want" Song: "On My Father's Wings," in which Kayley expresses her desire to become a knight.
- Little "No": Kayley can only say a quite "No..." when she discovers that her father is dead.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Kayley's the inexperienced but Energetic Girl to Garret's Savvy Guy trained in the art of knighthood.
- She Cleans Up Nicely: At the end of the film, Kayley is seen in a white gown during her and Garrett's knighting ceremony. Of course, Garrett is blind and doesn't get a reaction shot of her.
- Significant Birth Date: She was born on the very day that King Arthur pulled Excalibur from the stone.
- Slipknot Ponytail: Once, her hair tie gets snagged off by a tree branch, undoing her ponytail when she runs from Rubers henchmen in the Forbidden Forest. Later, when she is talking to Garrett after he saved her life from the ironmen, she fixes her ponytail back up with a spare hair tie.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Kayley has her mother's facial features.
- Tomboyish Ponytail: She dons a shoulder past ponytail when she is a young woman.
- Uptown Girl: She is a daughter of a late Knight of the Round Table who falls for Garrett, a hermit and dreams of being a Knight of the Round Table.
- You Killed My Father: Her father was murdered by Ruber at the beginning of the film. When she overhears Ruber gloating about the deed to Arthur during the climax, she attacks him with a wooden beam.
- Voiced by Cary Elwes, Bryan White (singing voice)
A blind man who lives in the forbidden forest and helps Kayley on her quest.
- Bloodless Carnage: He is badly grazed at the side by an arrow from Rubers men, but he doesnt bleed.
- Composite Character: His name comes from Sir Gareth in The King's Damosel, but his blindness comes from Lynette's later Love Interest, Lucius. Beyond that, however, he doesn't have much in common with either of them.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Garrett was once a young stable boy who dreamt of becoming of knight, but his dreams were dashed after he was blinded, due to a head injury. His dreams were dashed even further after the death of Sir Lionel, resulting Garrett to run away from Camelot in self-exile and lived in the Forbidden Forest alone for so many years, which is why he was that grumpy and preferred to be in solitude with Ayden.
- Deadpan Snarker: He comes out with remarks that drip with sarcasm, especially around Kayley when they first meet.
- Disabled Love Interest: He is blind and slowly falls for Kayley during the film.
- Disabled Snarker:Kayley: I didn't realize you were...
Garrett: What? Tall? Rugged? Handsome?
Garrett: (chuckles briefly) You know, I always forget that one.
- Emerging from the Shadows: This is how he was fully introduced after Kayley fell into the pond and gets caught in a net.Garrett: Hey! That's my net.
- Grumpy Bear: Starts off as one when he meets Kayley, but he soon becomes more positive and open when he falls for Kayley during the search for Excalibur.
- Handicapped Badass: Blind he may be, Garrett has a great talent of knocking Rubers men into his traps - especially when he whacked his staff right in one of the thugs' crotch.
- The Hermit: Garrett has been living all alone in the swamp of the Forbidden Forest for a decade, after Sir Lionel's death.
- "I Am" Song: "I Stand Alone", it also becomes a sad reprise towards the end after he declined Kayleys offer of joining her to go to Camelot.
- I Work Alone: He states to Kayley, until he finally helps her on the journey to find Excalibur.Garrett: Not you, me and Ayden. We work alone.
- Knight in Sour Armor: He was so sarcastic, grumpy, uninterested and rude whilst meeting Kayley for the first time. But Character Development kicks in as he becomes more supportive and positive as the two begin to fall in love.
- Nature Hero: Garrett became this when he lives in the Forbidden Forest for a decade.
- No Place for Me There: Garrett feels that way after the result of his blindness and even Sir Lionels death. He sadly parts ways with Kayley, telling her to deliver Excalibur all by herself. He tells Ayden about his feelings that Kayley wouldnt see him as a knight.Garrett: You don't understand, in Camelot, she'd only see me through their eyes: Not a knight, not a man Not anything. (sheds tear)
- Prophet Eyes: Even though he is not a prophet, Garret has these eyes because he can still "see" in the Forbidden Forest through his other senses and experience.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Garrett delivers one of these to Kayley when they first meet about how naïve and sheltered she is. It doubles as his character song.
- Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Garret is the Savvy Guy trained in the art of knighthood to Kayley's inexperienced but Energetic Girl.
Two conjoined dragons that help Kayley on her quest.
- Big Fun: Both of them. When they are shown separate from each other in "If I Didn't Have You," Cornwall is still just as pudgy as you'd expect, but even Devon, despite his skinny neck, is also very chubby at the lower body.
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: At least once in the film:Devon: We can't fly! (to the camera) We've explained that before our song!
- Breath Weapon: Once they get their act together, they can indeed breath a mighty stream of flames.
- Brooklyn Rage: Cornwall has a heavy New York accent courtesy of Don Rickles and is the more rowdy of the two.
- Conjoined Twins: Though they do not like being together. That is, until at the climax where they learn to get along and team up.
- Deadpan Snarker: Due to their constant Snark-to-Snark Combat, they have many moments of insults and sarcasm.
- Delightful Dragon: A two-headed dragon, each head proving to be a Jerk with a Heart of Gold in his own way, and both being the film's Plucky Comic Relief.
- Expy: Personality wise, they both relate to The Odd Couple protagonists, Devon having the cultured, effeminate and sensitive traits of Felix and Cornwall having Oscar's insensitivity, perversion for women and tendency to behave like an angry, sarcastic jerk.
- Incompatible Orientation: Devon tries to kiss Cornwall at the end of the movie, the latter reacting to this with utter disgust. Granted, they are coinjoined twins, but apparently incest is not uncommon in their family.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While Devon can be insufferably snobbish, dramatic and pretentious, he's far more well-mannered as Cornwall is far more egotistical, abrasive and cantankerous. But despite their worst tendencies, they also deeply care about the well-being of their friends, especially Kayley. They also grow to accept that they do actually prefer to be an inseparable pair.
- Kissing Cousins: They are supposedly "the reason cousins shouldn't marry". Devon also tries to kiss Cornwall at the end of the movie in a way that doesn't appear to be joking.
- Multiple Head Case: Devon and Cornwall are conjoined twin dragons from birth, which lacks the ability of fire and flight because of their constant bickering, unless they agree on each other towards the climax of the film.
- Non-Human Sidekick: A dragon pair for Kayley.
- Polar Opposite Twins: Devon is a sophisticated intellectual that loves performing arts while Cornwall is more boorish and obnoxious flirt. This is unfortunate for them, as they cannot fly so long as they disagree on everything.
- The Power of Friendship: Devon and Cornwall lament their inability to fly through most of the movie, then find themselves able to do it once Kayley is kidnapped. Garret realizes that they can't fly unless they agree on things, and pushes them to do so by prompting "You both love Kayley, don't you?"
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Devon's Sensitive Guy to Cornwall's Manly Man.
- Snark-to-Snark Combat: Mainly towards each other, as demonstrated in their song.Devon: We're trapped! Trapped!
Cornwall: Stuck here with you for five hundred years.
Devon: Oh, dear, it's learned to count.
Cornwall: If you'd got me a good lawyer, I'd have split four hundred years ago.
Devon: Now listen here, pal, I didn't come here to be insulted.
Cornwall: Oh. Where d'ya usually go?
- Sidekick Song: "If I Didnt Have You" is a comedic song and a showcase of their inability to work together. It becomes a plot point when they step up for Kayley later.
- Slobs Versus Snobs: The boorish and crude Slob is Cornwall and the sophisticated and well-mannered Snob is Devon.
- Unexplained Accent: The late Don Rickles American accent is noticeable throughout the film, whereas Eric Idles accent is entirely English.
- Voiced by Gary Oldman
The villain of the film and an evil lord who wants to steal Arthurs Excalibur for himself and rule Camelot.
- Adaptational Badass: Believe it or not, given the usual Lighter and Softer tone of this movie compared to The King's Damosel. In it, the Red Knight is just a random warlord who, while admittedly being a very personal threat by taking over the protagonist's household and demanding to marry her older sister (to be made into a Lord), ultimately gets taken out like a twig. Ruber, on the other hand, wants to be the king and plunge Britain into eternal warfare, punches dragons and ultimately gets a more dignified death. He has a much better personality to boot.
- Ax-Crazy: He is clearly an unstable blood knight. His first scene shows him starting a bloody ruckus at the Round Table.
- Badass Normal: No powers, but the man can kill a dragon with his bare hands!
- Bald of Evil: Sir Ruber is clearly half-bald at the top of his head.
- Berserk Button:
- After Sir Lionel says "I will not serve a false king" to him, Ruber goes completely ballistic, trying to kill Arthur with a mace and ultimately whacking Lionel hard enough to kill him.
- Ruber does not take it well when the Griffin loses Excalibur in the forbidden forest.
- Big Bad: The main antagonist of the film. The plot is kicked by him murdering Sir Lionel and his quest to kill Arthur and become the new king.
- Big Ol' Unibrow: Well, not really a unibrow. Ruber's eyebrows are just so close to touching each other that whenever he scowls or smirks, it almost looks like he has a long red eyebrow.
- Blade Below the Shoulder: Ruber does this in the last third of the film by magically melding Excalibur to his arm with his magic potion. Such a pity that didn't last that long.
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: This exchange after Ruber disrupted the song.
- Bullfight Boss: In the video game adaptation, he's defeated by waiting for him to aim a charge attack, and dodging so the sword hits the stone, as in the movie.
- The Caligula: Ruber is a warped and tyrannical type who will stop at nothing to take over Camelot, which would surely make him a Caligula. It says a lot about him that he is willing to sacrifice one of his own hands in order to never be parted from the power that Excalibur is, in essence finding no further use in such an articulate tool other than exercising that power.
- Character Tics: Ruber has the habit of twitching his eye too often throughout the film. Plus, his irises in his eyes tend to disappear briefly, this occurs too often in his song.
- Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: Ruber has dark purple shadows around his eyes to add to his unhinged appearance.
- Deadpan Snarker: Ruber has a few snarky moments in the film.Griffin: It wasn't a pigeon, it was a falcon! With silver wings.
Ruber: (mockingly) Silver wings? Ooh, scary.
- Later on when seeing Kayley reuniting with her mother:
- Death Glare: Ruber has the habit of giving anyone these. It is usually a warning sign that they should back away or fight.
- He throws each one to Lionel and Arthur before he goes into a rampage.
- He gives the Griffin a few of these after he lost Excalibur.
- Ruber ultimately gives one to Kayley after she stopped him from killing Arthur.
- Didn't Think This Through: Ruber falls into this after magically bonding Excalibur to himself, where this will later get himself stuck in The Stone where Excalibur came from.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Ruber kills a dragon by punching it and roasts the creature on the spit for him and his henchmen to feed on.
- Die Laughing: He was heard laughing and makes his deranged smile as the powerful magic of The Stone and Excalibur dismantle his mechanical arm and armor prior to him being brutally disintegrated mid-laugh.
- Emerging from the Shadows: How Ruber was first introduced by coming from a doorway before secretly following the knights to the round table.
- Empty Piles of Clothing: Subverted, only his armor is shown to be blown off from Ruber before he disintegrates to nothingness, leaving one of his pauldrons to fall down next to The Stone.
- Establishing Character Moment: The very first thing he does is emerge from the shadows as he enters King Arthur's court, and then rudely interrupts the opening song number with an interjection of "ME!" and getting down to business to try and get Arthur to hand over most of Camelot's land to himself. When Arthur and Sir Lionel blow him off for his selfishness, Ruber goes ballistic and immediately tries to asurp the throne, killing Sir Lionel and trying (and failing) to kill King Arthur before escaping.
- Evil Redhead: His shoulder-length red hair is noticeable during the Round Table "sing-along".
- Evil Is Petty: It doesn't get more petulant than trying to asurp the throne and murder your king in his court (and killing one of his most loyal men as he tries to defend him in the process) solely because they refused to cowtow to his selfish desire to have most of Camelot's precious land handed over to him.
- Evil Plan: Steal Excalibur and use it to kill Arthur so he himself can be king.
- FaceHeel Turn: Ruber was once a trusted knight of Arthur, but as the ten years pass, Ruber became more obsessed with the ideas of having more lands to himself and nominating himself for the new king, until Arthur and Lionel push him to his breaking point.
- For the Evulz: He wants to rule England for entirely narcissistic reasons and he isnt even given Freudian Excuse.
- A God Am I: Seeing the divine power that lies within Excalibur, he immediately decides that such power should be his and his only and that he is destined to make it a part of him. He is also quick to start his own calendar by naming it quite predictably the Ruberian Age. When Arthur declares that Ruber is no king during their confrontation during the climax, Ruber responds with this:Ruber: You're right. Perhaps I'm more of a god!
- Gone Horribly Right: After getting hold of Excalibur, Ruber uses his potion to meld the sword to his arm to make sure he holds it forever. However, it works too well for him, because once he gets the sword stuck in The Stone, he couldn't really let go of it or pull himself free. The outcome afterwards is not pretty.
- Gonk: Sir Ruber is creepily deformed, with a banana-shaped head, greenish skin, yellow scleras in his eyes, and jagged fingernails, making him stand out severely from the other knights.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Whenever he is annoyed by the Griffin or his henchmen's stupidity.
- Identity Concealment Disposal: As he invades Julianas farm, he wears a face-concealing horned helmet that he takes off, tosses it aside to his men and never puts it on again for the rest of the film. But he does wear a black cloak to disguise himself whilst entering Camelot and exposes himself when he sets off an ambush.
- It's All About Me: Whether its the Knights of the Round Table anthem, or his own little Villain Song he will find a way to interject the most important keyword to him. ME.
- Kick the Dog: Tells Juliana "How about a kiss? I hear you're still single." Keep in mind that he's the one who murdered her husband.
- Large Ham: Quite often. This also happens in his song, mostly in the last verse.
- Laughably Evil: Some moments in his song can actually make you laugh. He is hysterical both figuratively and literally.
- Left Stuck After Attack: Twice in one day:
- When Ruber and the Griffin get trapped under the ogre's butt, only to blasted out when the ogre breaks wind:
- How Ruber meets his demise after accidentally returning Excalibur back into its stone.
- Earlier in the film, Ruber and his men are trapped by the tree creature's hand whilst trying to ambush the heroes.
- Made of Iron: Ruber is extraordinarily tough for a normal human. He immediately grabbed a mace that Kayley tried to whack him with, despite that it didn't break any of his bones. He also kills a dragon by simply punching it. Ruber later clutches burning hot coals in his hand, and surprisingly enjoys it (this doesn't leave burn marks on his hand).
- Nightmare Face: Bares one when he reveals himself to Juliana after he and his henchmen invaded her home.
- No Body Left Behind: Ruber is obliterated into smoke by The Stone's power, leaving Excalibur whole in The Stone and one of his pauldrons falling back to earth.
- Obviously Evil: Rubers physical appearance can really tell when he is far different from the other knights.
- Oh, Crap!: When he realizes that the stone he just stuck Excalibur into is The Stone, he knows exactly how screwed he is.
- Only the Chosen May Wield: Played towards the end, Ruber wields Excalibur and his hand is merged with it in the final battle. However, Kayley and Garrett trick him into thrusting the sword back into the stone. Since King Arthur is the only one able to pull the sword from The Stone, Ruber is stuck. Then The Stone's power obliterates Ruber, leaving Excalibur free for Arthur to reclaim.
- Rage Breaking Point: Ruber remains calm and callous during the meeting. But when Ruber nominates himself for the new king and how Lionel responds "I will not serve a false king!" to him, he completely loses it!
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: Ruber wears a black cleavage and trousers with red armor, boots, belt, and wrist-cuffs. He later wears a black cloak to disguise himself towards the end of the film.
- Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: He has red hair, green eyes, and is the film's main Antagonist.
- Slasher Smile: Ruber sports several of these throughout the film to go with his insane personality:
- A scary one with his Nightmare Face when he reveals himself to Juliana. He has another creepy one◊ when he reveals that he is threatening to kill Kayley if Juliana doesn't help him.
- An really crazy one throughout his song where he is transforming his henchmen from flesh into metal.
- Dons one with his Evil Laugh at times.
- Ruber has yet another one when he is fusing Excalibur to his arm with his potion.
- Finally, has the last ones when he is cornering and attempting to kill an wounded Arthur without mercy.
- Suddenly Shouting: Ruber does that a few times:
Sir Lionel: I will not serve a false king!
- When arguing with Sir Lionel:
Ruber: Then serve... (whips out a mace) A DEAD ONE!
Ruber: (to his Griffin) Have I told you today? How magnificently and totally worth-LESS YOU ARE!!
- After learning Excalibur's whereabouts from his pet Griffin:
- Surrounded by Idiots: His mechanical minions not just being the idiots in question, but the Griffin and Bladebeak as well. The annoyed expression on Rubers face at times is noticeable.
- Token Evil Teammate: When he was a knight of the round table.
- Tranquil Fury: Ruber is shown to be calm and menacing at times. He even shows shades of this when he is learning from the Griffin that he lost Excalibur.
- Unstoppable Rage: This is demonstrated when Ruber prepares to kill Arthur with a mace and not even the knights can stop him - with Sir Lionel ending up killed as a result. Until Arthur ends Ruber's rage by simply holding out Excalibur in front of him for Ruber to whack his mace with and to be powerfully rebounded.
- Villainous Valour: Ruber is a psychotic murderer, no doubt about it, but you must admit that he is also exceptionally strong and brave. Just a couple of examples:
- When Ruber is invading Juliana's home, Kayley tries to hit him from behind with a good-sized mace. He turns around, catches it, and then twists the head. Never mind that the spikes should have skewered his hands.
- He kills a dragon by punching it with just his bare hands (after dropping his sword and remained still) and then roasts it on a spit.
- Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: Ruber is the only human to have light yellow scleras and small green irises.
- You're Insane!: This exchange:
- Voiced by Frank Welker
A silver-winged falcon who serves as Garrett's aid and Merlin's pet.
- Actually Pretty Funny: Ayden snickers when Devon and Cornwall lose one of the alive sticks, resulting Cornwall to swallow him, only for Devon to spit him out on the other end, unharmed.
- Character Tics: Ayden can sometimes glint his silver wings with a lens flare effect.
- Noble Bird of Prey: Doesn't get any more noble than being Merlin's pet falcon who aids a blind man.
- Non-Human Sidekick: He is the only avian creature to support Kayley, Garrett, Devon and Cornwall on their journey to find Excalibur.
- Razor Wings: His wing feathers are made of silver, and can actually cut, as the Griffin learned the hard way.
- Voiced by Bronson Pinchot
Ruber's hench-beast, who is sent to steal Excalibur.
- Butt-Monkey: Given how many times he is attacked by Ayden, Ruber berates and abuses the creature quite often, to whom he is loyal though sadly very incompetent at his job. He's eventually burned, presumably to death, by Devon and Cornwall.
- Glowing Eyes of Doom: His green glowing eyes can be menacing towards Arthur (and mostly to the viewers).
- I Have You Now, My Pretty: Briefly, when he finally grabs hold of Ayden and is about to devour him, until Devon and Cornwall immediately intervene and breathe fire at him.
- Insistent Terminology: "It wasn't a pigeon, it was a falcon with silver wings."
- Oh, Crap!: Few of these moments:
- Whilst flying down to the forest where he dropped Excalibur seconds earlier, he sees giant thorn hands poking out through the thorn branches in the forbidden forest.
- After Ruber says "And now Excalibur is mine!", the Griffin immediately has that look on his face.
- The Griffin's reaction when he realises he is flying straight towards Ruber whilst chasing Ayden.
- Our Gryphons Are Different: The film has a particularly weird griffin. While following the classical griffin design, the black-feathered bird forequarters are proportionally much larger than the lion hindquarters, with a vulture's beak and glowing green eyes.
- Punch-Clock Villain: He's pretty much just the bad guy's pet and follows his orders without caring too much about taking over. The only thing he took personally was his attempt to get revenge on the good guy's falcon.
- Vocal Dissonance: Having the warm and friendly voice of Bronson Pinchot seems unfitting for his size and appearance and takes a lot of threat out of him.
- Voiced by Gabriel Byrne
Kayley's deceased father who was a Knight of the Round Table.
- Action Dad: The father of Kayley and a knight, whose legacy as such she wants to carry on.
- Blue Is Heroic: Wore a blue tonic and was a friendly, heroic person.
- Curtains Match the Windows: Sir Lionel had brown hair and brown eyes.
- Disappeared Dad: To Kayley, since he was killed by Ruber when she was a child.
- Dying Moment of Awesome: Considering his honor and profession, what better way for a knight to die than direct defense of his king?
- Good Parents: Was a caring, devoted father to Kayley when he was alive.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Lionel receives himself a fatal blow by Ruber's mace whilst defending the King.
- Meaningful Funeral: Arthur and his knights gave a memorial service to Sir Lionel who had sacrificed himself to save the king from Ruber's rage. They place Lionel's body in a stone coffin and placed somewhere in the farm where he can be remembered.
- The Mentor: He trained Garret in knightly combat and virtues and represented Garret's only hope of making something of himself after losing his sight.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He is one of the Knights of the Round Table. This becomes Kayley's inspiration to become a knight, and she and her love interest Garrett (who Sir Lionel trained after the accident in the stable fire) save Camelot from Ruber.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Tragically dies before we even got to know that much of him.
Kayley's mother who takes care of the family farm.
- Gasp!: Juliana does this twice: When Ruber reveals himself as he enters her home, and again when Ruber reveals her daughter being held hostage by two of his men.
- Feminine Mother, Tomboyish Daughter: Juliana is the feminine farming mother to her tomboyish daughter Kayley, who is more interested in horse-riding and becoming a knight. She tries to get Kayley to be more lady-like and at one point tries to get her to try on her dress.
- I Have Your Wife: Juliana is forced to help Ruber with his plan, after he threatens to kill Kayley. She sends Kayley away in secret, both for her own safety and so that she can get to Camelot ahead of Ruber and warn Arthur of the attack. For most of the rest of the film, she's a prisoner who can do nothing but hope for her daughter's safety.
- Mama Bear: When Ruber's minions held Kayley hostage and with Ruber threatening to kill her if Juliana doesn't help him with his evil plan, Juliana, while being held back by two of Ruber's other minions, shouts at him "Don't you dare harm her!"
- What Would X Do?: Juliana and Kayley get into an argument about Kayley's dream to become a knight. After her daughter runs off in anger, Juliana wonders what Lionel would have done about the issue.

The rightful king of Camelot and Ruber's nemesis.
- Big Good: The noble and rightful king of Camelot, who Kayley and Garret quest on behalf of and who knights the pair at the end of the movie.
- Bloodless Carnage: Arthur's arm is slashed by the Griffin, and is put in the sling.
- Blue Is Heroic: He wears a blue tunic, like all the knights.
- Death Glare: Arthur gives one to Ruber (as seen from the image) after he defeats Ruber with Excalibur.
- Horrible Judge of Character: The idea of knighting Ruber in the first place implies this, though it could be an obligation after the important support that he offered to the crown for years (for self-serving reasons of course).
- Modest Royalty: His attire isn't any different than that of his knights.
- Voiced by: Jaleel White
A chicken given an axe for a beak due to magic and is forced to work for Ruber.
- Butt-Monkey: Bladebeak can fall into this under the minimal abuse and neglect of Ruber's men.
- The Casanova: As a normal chicken, he manages to be this somehow, which his wife is not pleased by. The ending implies that he stops after saving her.
- HeelFace Turn: Bladebeak does this in the last third of the film after he speaks with his mate who is locked in a cage for most of the film and frees Kayley, though he was hardly the embodiment of "evil" to begin with.
- Lovable Coward: Most often seen trembling whenever all those greater characters around him fight or use occult and incomprehensible powers. By the end he does manage to stand up to his fears and contribute to the side that he really wanted to, significantly for a chicken.
- Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: A mix of his own mistreatment and that of his wife prompts him to switch sides.
- Sidekick Creature Nuisance: A rooster merged with an axe that annoys Ruber and his men with his blabbering. Until Ruber finally sends Bladebeak back to the wagons in the middle of the film, calling him "useless".
- Small Role, Big Impact: Bladebeak gives a report to Ruber about Kayley and Garrett following Ayden to find Excalibur, convincing Ruber and his men to follow them.
- Token Good Teammate: He was definitely shanghaied into becoming a member of Ruber's troops after being used as an unwilling guinea pig for Ruber's twisted experiments and never really desired or try to hurt any of the main characters. It is implied that he primarily stayed to plead for his imprisoned wife's life and whenever there was a fight he was thoroughly a fish out of water.
