Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })After the success of Monty Python's Flying Circus in the UK and US, the six Ambassadors of Anarchy got the right to make films. This 1975 effort was their second go-round (after 1971's And Now for Something Completely Different, which featured redone versions of several sketches from Circus) and one of their most famous and oft-quoted.A complete skewering of the Arthurian legend, it tells the story of King Arthur and his attempt to build a court at Camelot (which is, of course, a silly place). Once he assembles his crew (off-screen, mostly), he has a vision of God (or a reasonable drawing of same by Terry Gilliam based on a famous cricket player), informing him that to cement his name in immortality, he must seek the Holy Grail— the cup used at the Last Supper of Christ, and which caught his blood after the crucifixion. After a long and roundabout search which leads them to the far corners of the Kingdom and past idiosyncratic knights, the world's oldest harem, and a very nasty rabbit, they discover the Grail is supposedly located in a very old castle, which has fallen into the hands of those heathen enemies— the French.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Those nasty taunting bastards.Full of random quips, hilarious stand-alone scenes, and the type of comedic anarchy and anticlimax that practically defines British comedy even to this day, the movie was a low-budget success story and has become a Cult Classic over time. It also reveals Michael Palin's versatility, as he plays something like 10 roles over the course of the film. He's not alone, of course; the majority of people and about 80% of the lines are from the Pythonites, leading to some interesting blocking and directing decisions. (Watch Lancelot's helmet.)Or, if you want to be "artsy" about it, see Eric Idle's Broadway adaptation, Spamalot!.Just a side note— because Terry Jones was, in fact, an Arthurian scholar, this happens to be not just the funniest but the most accurate film adaptation of Malory's Le Morte D Arthur ever made. Though it is not to be confused with the original myths or other tellings of King Arthur and the Holy Grail. Some of the humour, in fact, is derived from typical Pythonian spins on events and characterizations from the original tales. It also meant that Jones knew how to caricature a story already muddied by Pop Culture Osmosis.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Trope Namer for I Shall Taunt You, Only a Flesh Wound, And There Was Much Rejoicing, Killer Rabbit, Holy Hand Grenade, With This Herring, Some Call Me "Tim", and, indirectly, Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer, Lady Not-Appearing-in-This-Game and The Knights Who Say "Squee!".

Anyone Can Die: For a comedy, this film has an awfully high mortality rate. Indeed, all that remains of Arthur's band by the end is Arthur himself, Bedevere, and Lancelot. Not that it does them any good, as they all get carted off to jail.

Abnormal Ammo
 Monty Python and the Holy Grail / int_12c65d9b
comment
Abnormal Ammo: The cow and large wooden rabbit the French fling at the English knights. Catapulting real animals— which the French also do— was a legitimate strategy in sieges, but they were usually dead animals meant to spread disease, not living livestock. Oh, and it was an attack strategy— the animals flung into a besieged castle— as defenders had more trouble getting rid of the corpses without letting the attackers in. The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, ultimately used to defeat the Killer Rabbit.

Deliberately Distressed Damsel
 Monty Python and the Holy Grail / int_13a5a275
comment
After Lancelot "saves" him from Castle Anthrax, Galahad accuses Lancelot of being gay, which he denies. Subsequently, we see Lancelot rush to a castle to rescue a "damsel" who turns out to be the very effeminate Prince Herbert—who already had an escape plan. So not-gay, ostentatiously-hyper-masculine Lancelot ends up answering the personal ad of a young feminine guy who isn't at all interested in marrying a girl with huge... tracts of land.

Crashing Through the Harem
 Monty Python and the Holy Grail / int_14c10915
comment
Crashing Through the Harem: Sir Galahad fights his way through a forest in a storm until he finds Castle Anthrax, which has a Grail-shaped beacon overhead. He bangs on the door, and when it opens he falls inside. He meets several young women, one of whom tells him that the castle contains eight score young blondes and brunettes, all between the ages of 16 and 19½. As Sir Galahad escapes from two naughty female doctors, he enters a room filled with the aforementioned eight score young women. Just as he decides to stay, Sir Lancelot arrives to "rescue" him and get him to continue the Grail quest. Sir Galahad then proceeds to call him gay.

comment
Stealth Pun: The ending, where everyone gets arrested instead of finishing the story. It's a cop-out. Describing a woman as having "huge tracts of land" accompanied by hand gestures indicating she has a large chest. The potential bride is described as having property, which, given the era, she would not have owned outright, but would have made up her dowry, to go to her husband upon marriage. Thus she was literally "well-endowed." It today's language a woman is "well-endowed" if she has a large chest. On the Special Edition DVD, the film opens with a clip from the 1961 British film Dentist On the Job; the off-screen projectionist realizes his mistake and switches over to the film proper. On the surface, this is just standard Python humour, but the joke comes from the film's American title: Get On With It. As explained by Terry Gilliam in the 40th anniversary Blu-Ray, the image of W.G. Grace as God was meant to be a reference to "The Grace of God".

Chekhov's Gag: Several; the debate about swallows is foremost. It comes back for a blink-and-you'll-miss-it shot at the beginning of the witch-burning scene, when Sir Bedevere is apparently attempting to see if a bird can fly with a coconut tied to its legs, and again near the finale, when Arthur's experience with the subject gives him an edge over the Bridgekeeper.

Mistaken for Murderer: Lancelot, Arthur and Bedevere are all arrested by the cops for the murder of the Famous Historian, the latter two identified by his wife. However, none of them are the killer - the killer had a horse.

Mythology Gag: Sir Bedevere is the first knight to follow Arthur. The character of Bedevere (Welsh: Bedwyr) appeared in Arthurian legend before Lancelot, Galahad and the rest (except Sir Robin who is new). Sir Bedevere is also the last of Arthur's knights to remain. In Malory's Le Morte D Arthur he is the last knight alive after the final battle where Arthur is mortally wounded. Sir Robin was mentioned to have wet himself at the Battle of Badon Hill. This battle was apparently a real event which Arthur became associated with. It frequently comes up in discussions about the historical basis for the Arthur legends. Sir Lancelot's squire Concorde shares a name with the steed of the Flying Circus character Dennis Moore (also played by Lancelot's actor John Cleese) from the episode "Dennis Moore".

Attack! Attack... Retreat! Retreat! Arthur's Battle Cry quickly breaks down into a rather disorderly call for retreat: "Run Awaaay!", when the French counterattack by launching a farm animal at the attackers. The tactic used against the killer rabbit is initially to Zerg Rush it. When it effortlessly kills several of them, Arthur calls a retreat.

Dark Age Europe: It takes place in the Dark Ages in England... with Frenchmen present, for some reason. Common tropes for the setting are everywhere, such as World Shapes: One can pretend it is just a very early vanguard of William The Conqueror.

Artistic License – History: A man announcing himself as the "King of the Britons" and "Defeater of the Saxons" would never have concluded with "Sovereign of all England".

Flynning: Averted, surprisingly, in one of the few Hollywood "knights in armor" tropes that's not parodied. The fight between the Green and Black Knights is very aggressive and ruthless (with the combatants not only using the blades but hitting each other with the crossguards and pommels, kicking, punching, and hitting the other guy while he's down) which is actually a much more accurate portrayal of what a real-life sword fight would have been like.

Aluminum Christmas Trees
 Monty Python and the Holy Grail / int_67013b78
comment
Aluminum Christmas Trees: Launching/dropping dead animals and other nasty things was a real tactic in siege warfare.note There are some hints—though by no means conclusive evidence—that The Black Death of the 1340s spread that way during a siege of the Crimean city of Caffa (now Feodosia) when besiegers threw cadavers at the besieged Terry Jones, who happened to be a historian, pointed this out when he was refused permission to film at castles owned by the National Trust because the events in the film were "inconsistent with the fabric of the building". Those guys in the monks' robes who walk around chanting in Latin and hitting themselves in the face with boards? They were called flagellants, and compared to what some of the historical flagellant sects did to themselves, their behavior is extremely mild. That's also a real Latin chant, dated to at least the 13th century, albeit truncated down to just the last couple of lines. A stone model of a castle, done in medieval times? There is one◊ at the Ubeda Archeological Museum in Spain. There really were French-speaking people in England during most of the Middle Ages (after the Norman conquest), though not in King Arthur's time. Anarcho-syndicalism is a real political philosophy, and though this particular variant only applies to capitalist society, the basic ideas had older precursors: actual ancient Germans lived in a society closely resembling anarchist ideals. In fact, a lot of historical monarchies were elective to some degree, so people did vote for kings (although Arthur and the peasant woman arguing about it fits that historical tension anyway). The "Killer Rabbit" is inspired by real medieval religious art, which often illustrated the sin of cowardice by depicting a knight fleeing from a rabbit. The Holy Hand Grenade: an anachronistic gag? According to the opening credits, the movie's set in 932 AD, at which point hand grenades had already existed for the better part of two centuries, just in a different part of Europe (and of course the triggering pin hadn't been invented yet). In medieval times, the word "knight" actually was pronounced more like "kuniggit", similar to the German word knecht. An animated sequence shows naked men blowing trumpets with their anuses. This is actually something seen in quite a few medieval manuscripts for some weird reason.

They later change their name to something along the lines of "The Knights Who Say 'Ekke Ekke Ekke Ekke Ptangya Zoooooooom Boing Ni'", however, King Arthur, who can't pronounce this, proceeds to call them "The Knights Who 'Til Recently Said 'Ni'".

comment
Coconut Superpowers: A literal use, caused by the movie having No Budget. The horses are just the serfs following their knight, clapping two halves of a coconut together. When the knights are hurled from the Bridge of Death, the actor is just crouched down, and then standing up real fast before the camera cuts to a shot of the "knight" flying through the air.

The Chosen One: Subverted and discussed. When King Arthur gives his Lady of the Lake speech, an anarcho-syndicalist peasant doesn't see what's so special about being chosen. Rule of Funny applies here, since in the legends the Lady of the Lake gave Excalibur to Arthur when he was already king. He became king by drawing a sword from a stone (sometimes Excalibur, sometimes a different one), which the film doesn't mention.

Commune: Dennis the peasant informs Arthur that he refuses to acknowledge him as king, since Dennis didn't get to vote for him, and getting made king by having received a sword from "some watery tart" (i.e. the Lady of the Lake) is no basis for government. He then goes into a far more detailed explanation of how their governance works, to Arthur's annoyance (eventually culminating in him grabbing Dennis). This is later stated on the DVD commentary by John Cleese as a parody of radical leftists living in the UK at the time.

Cross-Cast Role
 Monty Python and the Holy Grail / int_985d3ad0
comment
Crosscast Role: In a rarity for Monty Python, there's only one example of crossdressing in the whole film: the very minor character of Dennis' mother, who is played by Terry Jones. Even the Pythons comment on this on the DVD commentary, and surmise that, since they could afford an actual cast for the first time, they just naturally hired real women to play the women in the film. Indeed Connie Booth (Cleese's then wife) is cast as the supposed witch, while Carol Cleveland is the main woman in Castle Anthrax.

Gag Sub: The opening credits have bogus "Swedish" subtitles, and the DVD release includes a complete set of bogus subtitles for the entire film. The latter is entirely composed of lines from William Shakespeare's Henry IV Part 2. It's labeled on the DVD as being "For People Who Did Not Like The Film".

comment
Overly Long Gag: It takes an inordinately long time and many patient repetitions for the King of Swamp Castle to get his guards to understand that he wants them to stay in the room and not let Prince Herbert leave. And just when the King thinks they've got it, the guards start to follow him out of the room (i.e., the exact opposite of what the King told them to do), and he has to explain his orders yet again. The sequence of Lancelot charging toward the gate of Swamp Castle, played over and over again.

Genericist Government: Rather deliberately subverted, where King Arthur claims to be a king, and the peasant blithely demands to know what kind of government he offers, and how it is an improvement over the anarcho-syndicalist model already practiced by the local peasantry (which he insists on describing in detail). The conversation ends with the peasant complaining about "being repressed" when King Arthur attempts to shut him up in annoyance.

Vow of Celibacy: Sir Galahad is known as "Sir Galahad the Pure", but the many women at Castle Anthrax eventually convince him to forget it. He's rescued (very unhappily) by Lancelot before actually violating it though.

Insane Troll Logic
 Monty Python and the Holy Grail / int_c5f0119c
comment
Insane Troll Logic: Bedevere's faultless chain of reasoning leading to the conviction of the witch: If a woman weighs the same amount as a duck then she's made of wood because both ducks and wood float, and because both wood and witches burn, she must be a witch! In true Monty Python fashion, it works! Also, one of the tracks on the soundtrack album is an alleged philosophy professor analyzing the very thing. He concludes that sex is better than logic. In the same scene, one of the peasants suggests building a bridge out of the woman to test if she's made of wood. Bedevere shoots down that idea... by pointing out that bridges can also be made from stone.

Rapid-Fire Descriptors: Dingo, a maiden from Castle Anthrax, gets "angry" with her identical twin Zoot for lighting up their grail-shaped beacon and luring Sir Galahad into their castle. She calls her "Bad, bad Zoot! Oh, wicked, bad, naughty Zoot! Oh, wicked, bad, naughty, evil Zoot!" She says Zoot's a bad person who must pay the penalty! Which is spanking. All the maidens want a spanking. And after the spanking, the oral sex.

Shout-Out: The Trojan Rabbit (Trojan Horse) and Lancelot's squire Concorde (the jet) (or possibly a reference to John Cleese's Dennis Moore character from the TV show), among others. Also, Lancelot thanks the Bridgekeeper as he passes the Bridge of Death by saying "Thank you. Thankyouverymuch," in the same vein as Elvis Presley. The flagellation, the witch burning scene, and the mock-Swedish subtitles are all shout-outs to The Seventh Seal. One of the other words kept by The Knights Who Say Ni, Nehwon, is the name of the world where Fritz Leiber's Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser stories take place.

Bait-and-Switch Credits: The credits start with Swedish subtitles, turn into a pitch for Swedish tourism, then an anecdote about a woman being bit by a møøse. The credits people are fired, before one more møøse subtitle comes in, after which the new directors are fired. The credits continue with møøse positions added in, which results in the directors being fired again. Finally, the last few credits are shown with bright flashing lights, crediting llamas several times, all set to Mexican mariachi music. See them all here.

Implausible Deniability: When the Black Knight is getting his arse handed to him by King Arthur, he insists that "it's just a flesh wound," all the while bleeding profusely from being heavily dismembered. When Bedevere reacts with (understandable) disbelief to the peasant's claim that a witch turned him into a newt, despite him standing right there in full human form, the peasant meekly adds, "...I got better."

Hoist by His Own Petard
 Monty Python and the Holy Grail / int_d397657d
comment
Hoist by His Own Petard: The bridge-keeper attempts to invoke three questions before letting them cross (which are either very easy—if you aren't indecisive—or awfully hard trick questions or trivia). If they fail (either by not knowing one of the answers or simply being indecisive), they are hurled down a fiery crevice. When Arthur gets his turn, specifically when he gets to the third question (about the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow), Arthur asks for clarification as to whether he meant an unladen African swallow or an unladen European swallow. The bridgekeeper then admits he doesn't know, with predictable results. The Knights of the Round Table, when the French taunters catapult their own Trojan Rabbit back at them.

That Was the Last Entry: Parodied when the group encounters a stone wall on which a victim of a monster attack has been carving entries onto. It ends, "He who is valiant, and might of spirit, may find the Holy Grail in the Castle of Arrrgh". The knights argue whether the castle is actually named Arrrgh or if the author died while writing it and wrote down his death rattle while doing so. Someone suggests he was dictating it. It's the first one.

 Monty Python and the Holy Grail / int_e567510d
comment
Determinator: Deconstructed, figuratively and literally, by the Black Knight scene. Cleese even said he based it on a school lesson in never surrendering that Cleese found rather ridiculous (as it was about a Greco-Roman wrestler who died in the ring rather than lose the match). If all your limbs are cut off then, no matter how determined you are, you can't continue fighting.

Unexplained Recovery
 Monty Python and the Holy Grail / int_e5d8460d
comment
Unexplained Recovery: The peasant's claim that he "got better" after being turned into a newt by the alleged witch comes across as pretty unconvincing, although it's just as likely that the peasant was lying about getting cursed in the first place. Despite an unpleasant "splat" sound effect after falling out of the tower, Prince Herbert shows up at his wedding none the worse for wear. He does intend to explain this recovery (in song, of course), but, sadly, we don't get to hear the best part.

Suspiciously Specific Denial
 Monty Python and the Holy Grail / int_e624f0e8
comment
Suspiciously Specific Denial: When Galahad arrives at Castle Anthrax and demands the Grail, Zoot acts as if she has no idea what he's talking about, but when he mentions seeing a vision of it in the sky, she suddenly exclaims, "Oh, I just remembered, our castle's beacon is grail-shaped." Considering A: there's a punishment set in place specifically for turning on the beacon (because they keep having trouble like this over it) and B: the maidens in the castle clearly want to lure young men into their bedrooms, it's pretty obvious Zoot knew all along what Galahad was talking about, that the beacon was turned on to trick travelers, and Zoot's exclamation was both this trope and a bit of Blatant Lies.

Only a Flesh Wound
 Monty Python and the Holy Grail / int_e663d3ef
comment
Only a Flesh Wound: The Trope Namer—but subverted. King Arthur chops the Black Knight's sword arm off to end the fight quickly and thus avoid having to kill him. When the knight insists on fighting one-armed, he chops off the other one, then one leg, then the other. At this point, the knight is clearly bleeding out and will probably die, but he trash-talks Arthur as if nothing had happened at all.

Weapons-Grade Vocabulary: The word "Ni", soon revealed to be usable by ordinary humans and not just The Knights Who Say "Ni". Turned around on the Knights, later. They are weakened by hearing the word "it". Oddly enough, the lead Knight says it near the beginning of the scene with no harm done, but then hits himself with it for damage during the fadeout.

No Ending: Due to a combination of writer's block, No Budget and everyone getting fed up with the film's Troubled Production. Arthur and his knights prepare to storm the French castle, and are then promptly arrested by the police for the murder of a historian killed by a random knight halfway through the film.

Anti-Climax: The surprise ending to the British attack on the French castle. The reason why they didn't go through with the whole fight is because they ran out of money and time and couldn't film the whole thing. So they just said "Everyone went to jail". Some people consider it a cop-out. note  It could also be a bust, too! Including Eric Idle's daughter. From the documentary Monty Python: Almost the Truth: The Death of the Legendary Black Beast of Aaaaarrrrrrggghhh There is no fight, just a Chase Scene. The monster disappears when the animator has a heart attack.

Arbitrary Mission Restriction: The film Parodies this trope when the Knights Who Say "Ni" demand that Arthur cut down the mightiest tree in the forest— with a herring. Of course, it overlaps with With A Herring, since the tool is not only arbitrarily specific, but also totally inadequate to the task.

Early-Bird Cameo: Sir Bors appears much earlier than his famous death scene; he's one of the helmeted knights who help Lancelot "rescue" Galahad from Castle Anthrax. He's not named in that scene, but you can tell it's him since he has the same heraldry. Tim the Enchanter and the army summoned to fight the French appear during the fourth-wall breaking scene in Castle Anthrax.

Department of Redundancy Department: A very wordy set of instructions is given to use the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch: This sounds exactly like an oral tradition (where repetition helped cement things in memory) that got transcribed exactly when it got written down. See above about Terry Jones being a history geek. Parts of the Book of Armaments bear an uncanny resemblance to the Athanasian Creed, which affirms the Christian doctrine of the Trinity in agonizing detail note presumably written very carefully to avoid schisms in the Church and to prevent People's Front of Judaea vs Judaean People's Front vs Popular Front situations.

comment
The above joke went even further in the script, but the final Brick Joke had to be cut because of the movie's low budget. The Pythons originally wanted the movie to end with an epic payoff for the "swallows with coconuts" joke, where Arthur's army would have stormed the Castle Aaaaargh and been aided at the last minute by a flock of swallows dropping coconuts on the French knights. Naturally, they didn't have enough cash to pull that off, and ended the movie with the cops arresting everyone instead.

Shown Their Work: Terry Jones was an Arthurian scholar and added details not commonly seen in different King Arthur adaptations such as Lancelot being a total berserker in combat. Despite the absurdity of the subsequent "duel", the fight between the Black Knight and Green Knight is actually much closer to how real-life sword fights went than Hollywood usually portrays them, it's less an honorable duel and more a violent brawl that happens to feature swords and ends the moment someone is hit in a vulnerable area.
