* DivineRightOfKings: Robin Longstride and England's barons make a deal with King John that they'll follow him into battle against a French invasion if he agrees to sign a charter limiting his power as king. After the battle, John goes back on his word, invoking divine right, and declares Robin an outlaw for impersonating a nobleman.

* CutLexLuthorACheck: Justified. Godfrey is best buddies with the King of England, who promotes him to his second in command. He couldn't possibly get any ''more'' power by betraying him to King Philip. The problem is that England is having financial troubles because of the Third Crusade and other reasons. A comparitively lower position in the better off French Court offers more money and more power.

[[Film/RobinHoodMenInTights Unlike some other Robin Hoods]] and like one other (Creator/SeanConnery and Creator/AudreyHepburn's ''Robin and Marion'', which featured Robin at the ''end'' of his career), the film is mostly set in the reign of King John and only features his brother UsefulNotes/RichardTheLionheart at the start. The film also includes more [[HistoricalDomainCharacter Historical Domain Characters]] than is usual for Robin Hood films. Aside from Kings Richard and John, their mother Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, John's wife Queen Isabella of Angoulême, the English court official William Marshal and King Philip Augustus of France all have roles in the plot.

* ActionGirl: After Sir Walter has Robin agree to pretend to be his son Robert for a while, including pretending to be Marion's husband, she informs him that "I sleep with a dagger" and he takes the floor. [[spoiler:She later pretends to seduce one of Godfrey's knights and kills him with a knife to the back of the neck, then wears Sir Walter's armor to fight in the battle on the beach.]]



* AnachronismStew: Despite the film's generally authentic medieval feel (HollywoodHistory aside), the ships in the climactic beach battle look rather like [[WorldWarII WWII-era]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LCVP Higgins boats]], only rowed instead of motorized. The ships and the battle itself have prompted comparisons to ''SavingPrivateRyan''. During that battle Robin also uses a type of war hammer that would not be common until the 15th century.

** Even before the film was released, comments were rife about the film being ''{{Gladiator}}'' [-IN SHERWOOD!-] just because of the same director and same lead star with the same haircut, and ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'' [-IN ENGLAND!-] just because there are battles and Robin gives a RousingSpeech.

* TheCrusades: Part of the backstory, as is now standard for Robin Hood. Robin is haunted by a massacre Richard ordered at the siege of Acre. Despite this, in a departure from several recent treatments of Robin Hood there are no actual Saracen characters in the film, and the immediately relevant conflict is the one in France.

* BestialityIsDepraved: Little John jokes that Will Scarlet “co-habits with sheep” and mimes sheep-shagging. In the film, Will's accent and [[ColourfulThemeNaming red hair]] likely marks him as a [[UsefulNotes/{{Wales}} Welshman]].
