Merlin would have been killed by a giant griffin (half eagle, half lion) if not for valiant Lancelot, who bravely attacked it and got them safely away. Learning Lancelot's life dream is to become a knight, grateful Merlin brings him to court, but when told only noblemen may apply, magically forges proof of nobility. Lancelot passes hazing and close combat tests against Prince Arthur but is found out as commoner and jailed. When the griffin attacks Camelot - even inside the royal castle - the knights' arms prove unable to penetrate it . Arthur frees Lancelot, who in return (with Merlin's magical help) triumphs where all knighthood fails miserably, but will Uther finally hear Arthur's plea to allow the best sword to serve in chivalry despite existing social restrictions?

The broom that Arthur throws at Lancelot while Lancelot is sharpening swords has its head disappear entirely between Arthur throwing it and Lancelot catching it. The head instantly re-appears when the shot goes back to Lancelot holding the broom. See more
So, come on, just for the sake of argument. If you had to: Arthur or Lancelot?
But I don't have to and I never will.
You're no fun, Gwen.
