* HeCleansUpNicely: Alejandro goes from being messy looking to looking like {{Antonio|Banderas}} [[LatinLover Banderas]] over the course of the movie. It is a testament to Antonio Banderas' acting skills that he manages to seem ''not'' charming until the makeover point.

* TheObiWan: Don Diego.



* PragmaticAdaptation: The original neatly introduced Zorro to a new generation by making Don Diego TheObiWan to a new Zorro and adding healthy lashings of tongue-in-cheek humour.

* NakedPeopleAreFunny: When Elena gets her dress cut off by Zorro she is left in a state of half undress (she wears a modest form of old fashioned underwear but her upper half is completely exposed but for [[GodivaHair very long hair]] placed over her chest) we are invited, rightly or wrongly, to chuckle at her predicament, especially after she went in believing that she would win the duel, and even more so when she briefly forgets how embarrassed she is after Zorro kisses her passionately - only to be reminded of indecent exposure when Zorro snatches his hat from her (which she was using to cover herself) and then she is almost caught topless by her foster father and his mooks. To be fair, she held her own pretty well before Zorro stripped her.

* CallBack: In the first movie's ActionPrologue, a young boy runs into a hooded man, assuming he's just another bystander in the crowd, before looking closer and realizing the hooded man is Zorro. Twenty years later in a gold mine, a slave worker is brought some water by another hooded man, who once again, upon closer inspection, is Zorro. The particularly heartwarming part, the boy who noticed the former Zorro ''became'' the latter one twenty years down the line.

* CombatPragmatist: Don Rafael has no problem bringing a gun to a SwordFight. Indeed, basically half the movie's fight scenes start with "hey, there's a sword at this guy's throat, drop your guns".

* TheLostLenore: Esperanza is this to both Diego and Rafael, as Diego's beloved wife and the woman that Rafael wanted to marry.



* WouldNotHurtAChild: Rafael goes out of his way to avoid harming children. Early in the film, he orders his men to remove all children from the execution plaza because he feels that children should not be exposed to the cruel acts he is willing to commit. He also adopts his archenemy's daughter and raises her well, and when Captain Love suggests killing the mine workers (many of them small children), Rafael is visibly disturbed

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The two most glaring ones in ''The Legend of Zorro'', which is set in 1850, are the role of the Confederate States of America (which weren't formed until 1861), and the First Transcontinental Railroad (which wasn't completed until 1869; in fact, California wouldn't gain its first railroad until 1856).
