* MundaneMadeAwesome: The wheelbarrow. A plan to [[spoiler: get past 60 men and into a locked gate hinges on having one as an asset. You have a giant, two master swordsmen, a cloak that can be set on fire and not have the person wearing it get hurt, but the whole plan hinges on having that one crucial element, a wheeled cart.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HeterosexualLifePartners: Fezzik and Inigo have shades of this. They are established to be friends in their first scene (and neither of them is friends with Vizzini, which is established instantly, as well). They express concern over one another being in danger multiple times. When they reunite, Fezzik nurses Inigo back to health... or rather, sobriety. Even the movie's soundtrack seems to think they are a couple - listen to the music when Fezzik finds the drunk Inigo. For a second, the music used sounds like it belongs in a "lovers reunited" scene.
