* PreMortemOneLiner: Averted with Frank, who sings his death song, as traditional Lakotah do. Mortensen learned the Lakotah language for this picture.
** Played straight earlier: "Nobody hurts my horse."

** Averted afterward. Later DNA testing showed that Hopkins had no Indian blood.



* JerkAss: Prince Bin Al Reeh isn't one of the main villains nor in league with them, but repeatedly talks down to Frank on account of his being American and tries to scare him out of the race, bribes British soldiers to deny him water at the well, and runs away during a raider attack. Jazira, who's to become his fifth wife, has a very low opinion of him.
** Averted with Prince Sakkar, who starts out like this but warms up to Frank after he [[spoiler:rescues him from quicksand]], and [[spoiler:dies fighting by his side]].

* InformedAbility: The sheikh offers Frank Turkish coffee, claiming foreigners think it's too strong. Frank downs it like a shot, claiming cowboy coffee isn't done until a horseshoe can stand up in the pot.

Jazira, who's to become his fifth wife, has a very low opinion of him. \n He gets better when Frank wins the race, congratulating him and praising Hidalgo's skill.

* ColdBloodedTorture: Frank stops the sheikh from executing Aziz so he can torture the whereabouts of Jazira from him with "Western justice": stabbing him in the throat with spurs and throttling him with a lasso.

* DidTheResearch: On the basis that Frank was supposed to be part Indian (some Indian people have apparently verified that he was), the filmmakers employed Lakotah extras and consultants, holy men and elders to make sure these parts of the story were accurate. Screenwriter John Fusco also wrote ''Film/{{Thunderheart}}'', which also used Lakotah actors, extras and consultants. The (actual) Ghost Dancers in ''Hidalgo'' are the same ones seen dancing in ''Thunderheart''.

''Hidalgo'' has chases, shootouts, rescues, and triumphs over unbelievable odds. It is anything but a true story, but, to quote RogerEbert, "... if you do not have some secret place in your soul that still responds even a little to brave cowboys, beautiful princesses and noble horses, then you are way too grown up and need to cut back on cable news. And please ignore any tiresome scolds who complain that the movie is not really based on fact. Duh."
