* NeutralFemale: During the final fight between Robin and the Sheriff, Marian ([[JustifiedTrope who is unarmed]]) does her best to stay out of the way, though she doesn't hesitate to [[ImprovisedWeaponUser throw whatever she can get her hands on]] at the Sheriff when his back is to her. She even appears to be preparing to strangle him with her bare hands at one point, though he disrupts the attempt.
** She also trips him up by kicking a bench at him and burns him with a candle. We can safely say this is in averted-territory.

* {{Misblamed}}: A meta-example; the film is rather notorious for the fact that most of the cast, and Kevin Costner in particular, lack a British accent. What we consider a British accent today is a fairly recent innovation, and having characters speak with said accent doesn't make them any more or any less accurate to the time period.

If accuracy were that important, the characters really should be speaking either Old or Middle English (the film takes place during the period of transition between the two), which would be largely incomprehensible to a speaker of Modern English.

* FollowTheLeader: The film duplicates so much from the immortal series ''RobinOfSherwood'' that the creators of the latter actually briefly wondered whether they should sue. They quickly decided against the inevitable hassle and stresses, and just waved it all off.

*** However, in the extended cut of the film, there is a scene where Mortianna advises him to seek aid "from those who share our god." It should also be noted that said Christian priest is a willing stooge of the Sheriff, albeit more out of cowardice than conviction. Make of it what you will.

->''"I've seen knights in armour panic at the first hymns of battle. And I've seen the loneliest unarmed squire pull a spear from his own body, to defend a dying horse. Nobility is not a birthright; it's defined by one's actions."''

** Hence, Creator/MelBrooks did the famous TakeThat when in ''[[Film/RobinHoodMenInTights Men in Tights]]'', his Robin comments "Because, unlike some other Robin Hoods, I can speak with a British accent". Then again, the language used in England in the 12th century was nothing like what we call British today (Received Pronunciation/Standard English being recent developments). It wasn't even English, but Anglo-Norman French.
