** It looks like the Sheriff is done for when King Richard returns to England and stops in Nottingham. He has the Sheriff arrested for treason with various nobles encouraged to testify against him. One does, entering a room before a hooded record-keeper to boldly state he will talk of the Sheriff's treason...at which point the "record-keeper" throws off his hood to reveal the Sheriff. The "King" is an imposter and this whole thing is a test to see who among the Sheriff's "allies" are truly loyal.

* King John ''seeing through Robin Hood's disguise'' in [[Disney/RobinHood the Disney film]]. Said disguise wasn't [[PaperThinDisguise paper thin]], either. Hell, the way he unmasks him was awesome. In the middle of knighting him, he ''shoves the sword into the tunic he was wearing, and rips it open, not at all making it accidental.'' Then he just sits there smugly and goes "Sieze him!" like finding the infamous bandit in his own kingdom is nothing to him.
* In ''Film/RobinHood2010'' he gets to have a massive rant at his mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine, over Richard's follies, like going off to play at holy war in the crusades and getting captured, meaning John has to raise an exhorbitant amount of money to get him back.

* In RobinOfSherwood (the ITV series); the episode 'The Greatest Enemy'. Robin fighting off the Sheriff's army with just a longbow. He's outnumbered by about 50 highly armoured men-at-arms to one outlaw....and the Sheriff's men are still afraid to advance on him.

* In Disney's earlier effort, TheStoryOfRobinHoodAndHisMerryMen, Robin is a simple yeomen who succeeds in completely thwarting Prince John's plans to usurp the crown, outwits, humiliates, and finally kills the Sheriff of Nottingham, and ends the movie knighted an Earl and engaged to the girl who at the start of the movie was his social superior and indirect master. Kid's good.

* From ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves''. Virtually Alan Rickman's entire [[LargeHam hamtastic]] performance, but particularly this: "Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas!" and his infamous CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon rant, which is now a TropeNamer.

** Made even more awesome by the fact that only the sheriff is armed with a sword. Friar Tuck beats him off ''with a stick''.

* From the BBC's ''Series/RobinHood''. After getting injured as the Night Watchman, Marian looks on as every man in the town square is forced to remove their sleeve so that Guy can inspect them for any [[RevealingInjury tell-tale signs of combat]]. After giving up, he casually pats Marian on the arm and notices that she's bleeding. Without missing a beat, and with Guy sitting right next to her, Marian uses a fruit-knife to casually slice into her palm to cover for the blood, telling him that she must have accidentally gotten some on her sleeve. It's awesome because it's so understated, and the girl ''[[BadAss doesn't even wince]]''.
