* 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]]''.

* In the 2010 film, Sir Walter Loxley. He's ''84 years old and blind,'' and TheDragon is toying with him for it. [[{{OldMaster}} Then Walter is able to lock blades with him, and the old man doesn't need sight to know what to do.]]

Added DiffLines:

** He does the same unmasking just after Prince John has declared himself king. ("Aren't you being premature, brother?") John's look of utter horror is priceless. Even better is at the end as John nearly falls over himself backtracking and Richard coldly tells him to get on the first boat out of England and never come back.

** If we're talking about the hubcaps, then his emptying of the chest full of gold ''in broad daylight without the guards holding it even noticing'' certainly deserves a mention. Keep in mind that he's crossdressing at this point, and carrying the loot in his dress. Pretty graceful for a big guy.
