** It's also implied that Montero knew every single one of them was full of crap, as the real Zorro would have recognized the man who killed his wife, [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow and wouldn't be dumb enough to reveal himself to him in this sort of situation]].

* SpiritedYoungLady: Elena wants to keep the commandments and tries to behave the way her father would like her to but her heart is too wild. She can both dance gracefully with Captain Harrison Love or sword fight with Zorro. She also makes her view of politics knows at dinner.

* OneManArmy: Both Diego and Alejandro have no difficulty taking on large groups of [[{{Mook}} soldiers and other thugs]] single-handedly; it's a trademark of the character.

* 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).
