* MenOfSherwood: The Black Fox's forces [[spoiler:and Hawkins's dwarf friends]] each become this in the climax. Kind of expected because the Black Fox is an expy of Robin Hood anyway.

* NoYou: This exchange between Roderick and Gwendolyn at the beginning:
-->'''Roderick''': I am the king. If it pleases me, you will marry Griswold.
-->'''Gwendolyn''': If it pleases you so much, ''you'' marry Griswold.



** "Yea, verily, yea! Yea?"

to:

** During Hawkins's ceremony to become a knight and he's revealed to Roderick, we get this: "Yea, verily, yea! Yea?"



** Jean also gets one. [[spoiler:Before "The Maladjusted Jester", Hawkins subtly starts singing the tune of the lullaby he had earlier used to lure the infant king to sleep. ''While holding the basket containing the baby, right in front of Roderick!'' The [[OhCrap Oh Crap]] comes when Jean realises this. Heck, she even mouths "Baby" as it happens.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TapOnTheHead: Hawkins is reluctant to knock out the real Giacomo with a login the woodman's hut, so Jean does this honors, and we see it happen as shadows on the wall.


Added DiffLines:

* TyrantTakesTheHelm: Roderick did this some months before the events of the film due to the RulingFamilyMassacre that wiped out all but one of the royal family.

* RepeatAfterMe: When Griselda uses her magic to hypnotize Hawkins, he takes her first instruction rather literally.
-->'''Griselda''': Repeat after me: I am craven and thou art my master!
-->'''Hawkins''': I am craven and thou art my master!
-->'''Griselda''': Stand there, fool.
-->'''Hawkins''': Stand there, fool.
-->'''Griselda''': Silence!
-->'''Hawkins''': Silence!

* {{Knighting}}: Spoofed in so many ways. When Gwendolyn says she wants Giacomo (really Hawkins) instead of Griswald, the knight is offended, and would challenge Giacomo to a duel if he weren't a lowly jester. Hawkins is rushed through knighting to avoid spoiling the marriage, by given fixed and easy challenges to complete, and even the final ceremony is done double time.

* LightningCanDoAnything: At one point Hawkins' armor is hit by lightning. After Hawkins puts it, on anything made of metal [[SelectiveMagnetism sticks to him]].

* ImplausibleFencingPowers: Hawkins slashes a set of candles, apparently to no effect, and Ravenhurst laughs at him. Then he ''blows'' on the candles, and they fall apart. This is another ActorAllusion, as well, as Tyrone Power had pulled a similar, if less exaggerated, bit of swordplay on Basil Rathbone's Captain Esteban in 1940's ''The Mark of {{Zorro}}.''

* ShoutOut: [[{{Zorro}} The Black Fox]], with a BilingualBonus and the candle scene parodying a scene from ''The Mark of Zorro'', in which Basil Rathbone played the heavy too.
