*** Sort of. The sheriff does briefly gain the upper hand beforehand when he slashes Tuck's weapon in half. Still though, Tuck still keeps fighting.

despite being reduced to a stub to fight with, he appears to be keeping even ground until Trigger intervenes.

* Much from the BBC's ''Series/RobinHood'' is arguably the hero of the season one finale. After realizing that King Richard is a fake, he immediately interrupts Marian's wedding to Guy and tips her off. His attempts to stop the wedding inadvertently draw Robin back to Locksley and the trio are able to save Marian's father and the other outlaws from the Sherriff's trap because of his actions.

Added DiffLines:

**An early episode has her targeted by the grieving son of one of Guy's victims as revenge. By the time Robin arrives to 'rescue' her, she has talked the young man out of his plan to kill her by pointing out his mother would be hurt too. She then comes up with another way for the lad to get his revenge and actually helps his family. And she does this while unarmed and held at arrow point.

** An understated one, but the Sheriff coyly seeing through all the civilian's hiding places for their money in the early parts of the film. He's a buffoonish jerk, but he still has a sharp eye on the town.

** When he confronts Friar Tuck it looks like he's talked himself into a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown from the livid priest (see above). But the point the Sheriff ''slashes his weapon in half'' (with Tuck's rage turning into an OhCrap stance) and then uses Nutsy and Trigger's help to drag him away for hanging is the starting sign that the Sheriff is a NotSoHarmlessVillain.

** When he confronts Friar Tuck it looks like he's talked himself into a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown from the livid priest (see above). But from the point the we see Trigger hiding and waiting, it is revealed to be a gambit. The Sheriff suddenly recovers and ''slashes his weapon Tuck's club in half'' (with Tuck's rage turning into an (earning his first proper OhCrap stance) reaction) and then uses Nutsy the two quickly overpower and Trigger's help to drag sentence him away for hanging is a hanging, the starting sign that the Sheriff is a NotSoHarmlessVillain.
NotSoHarmlessVillain and the film's stakes are becoming a lot bleaker.

* 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.

** The shippers may disagree, but Marian punching Guy in the face at the altar after he coerced her into an engagement and then tried to marry her under false pretences was MadeOfWin. Not only does she use her wedding ring as a knuckle-buster, but when she rushes from the church she finds that Robin is waiting for her - and after leaping up on the horse behind him she gleefully chucks her wedding veil into the dust behind them as they gallop away.
** Also MadeOfWin: Her idea of "one last fling to make her more comfortable in her marriage" was robbing her future husband blind on the very eve of their wedding. After all the hell Gisborne had been putting Marian through throughout Series 1 (and probably since before then), it was such a viscerally satisfying "Fuck you."
