* 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).

'''''The Mask of Zorro''''' is a 1998 film which depicts the retirement of the aging Don Diego de la Vega as {{Franchise/Zorro}} (Creator/AnthonyHopkins), and his training of a young punk (AntonioBanderas) as his replacement. There have so far been two films in the current treatment of the franchise, ''The Mask of Zorro'' and ''The Legend of Zorro'' (2005).

'''''The Mask of Zorro''''' begins with the departure of the Spanish government from California, Northern Mexico. Don Rafael Montero, the Spanish governor of California, makes one last attempt to defeat the legendary outlaw Zorro but fails. Zorro returns home to his wife and baby daughter Elena, telling them that with the Spaniards out of Mexico, Zorro will retire. [[YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle Not so fast]]: enter Don Rafael, who has deduced that Zorro is Don Diego. In the struggle that follows, Diego's wife is killed, his house burned to the ground and Rafael absconds with the baby. Zorro is arrested and thrown into prison.

Twenty years later Diego escapes and, now a bitter, impoverished old man with nothing to live for, returns in secret to California. Unfortunately, so has Don Rafael, who has been put back into power by the wealthy Mexican landowners who are still loyal to him; he also has brought Elena (Creator/CatherineZetaJones), whom he has raised as his own daughter. Meanwhile, young outlaw Alejandro Murieta (Antonio Banderas) has lost his older brother Joaquin to [[CorruptHick corrupt Texas lawman]] Captain Harrison Love (Matt Letscher). Later, Diego meets up with Alejandro and offers to train him to become the new Zorro. Rafael and Love, in the meantime, hatch a [[ZanyScheme scheme]] to purchase California from the President of Mexico, using gold secretly mined from California itself, and then [[StuffBlowingUp destroy the mine]] and [[KillEmAll all the workers inside]], forcing Zorro to race to the rescue.

* NobleDemon: Rafael is an [[AristocratsAreEvil evil aristocrat]], but he's also a [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes loving father]] who [[WouldNotHurtAChild refuses to harm children]] and [[EvenEvilHasStandards expresses disgust]] at his [[TheDragon Dragon's]] sadism. Even his MoralEventHorizon moment--[[spoiler:holding Elena at gunpoint]]--is a subversion because it turns out to be a bluff.
