* MundaneMadeAwesome: The scene in which Zorro unsheathes his sword for the final showdown VS Captain Love.Love, letting the sun's glare slowly glide along the blade which, according to the [[WordOfGod director's commentary]], was not CGI and just Antonio Banderas showing off!

** The case of Murrieta, however, is more complicated due to how his figure was ''already'' drenched in myths and urband legends way before the movie was made. According to The Otherwiki, depending on the point of view, he was considered an infamous bandit or a Mexican patriot, even nicknamed "The Mexican Robin Hood".
* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Harrison Love is based loosely on California Ranger Capt. Harry Love, a veteran of the Mexican-American War who was tasked to bring down the "Five Joaquins" gang, of whom Murieta was the chief member. After successfully hunting down Murietta and killing him and Three-Fingered Jack in a shootout, Murieta's head and Jack's hand were preserved in alcohol and turned over for proof. Love was not exactly a psychotic killer as shown in the film, and the historical events occurred in 1853, well after California became a member of the United States (''Mask of Zorro'' takes place over 10 years earlier).

* ButtMonkey: Captain Garcia, always being outwitted, embarrassed, and outright humiliated in every encounter he is involved in. Choice moments includes being stripped and tied to a cactus, enveloped by a giant map without getting so much as a single strike in, and slamming gutfirst into a tree branch at speed.

* BelligerentSexualTension: To the extent that it's difficult to tell whether Alejandro and Elena's duel constitutes a fight to the death, or a very elaborate and violent form of foreplay.
