* CasualDangerDialogue: Cardinal Richelieu's men give chase after the Musketeers hijack the Cardinal's coach:
-->'''Porthos'''''(discovering a chest containing wine and gold coins in the back seat)'': Ah ha! The Cardinal's sacred snack chamber.\\
'''Aramis''': And what have we here? Is he a man of God or a man of gold?\\
'''Porthos''': Champagne?\\
'''Athos''': We're in the middle of a chase, Porthos.\\
'''Porthos''': You're right. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Something red]]. For a chase, the Cardinal recommends his excellent '24 Cabernet. ''(to D'Artagnan)'' You can't have any, you're too young.\\
''(after escaping the Cardinal's men)''\\
'''Porthos''': The picnic was delicious, the champagne was excellent, remind me to send the Cardinal a note.

* FollowTheLeader: This movie was made only two years after ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'', and some similarities can be drawn. A lot of ArtisticLicense is taken with the source material and history, and there is the same updated-for-the-90s sensibility. Tim Curry subs in for Creator/AlanRickman for resident [[LaughablyEvil hilarious]] [[LargeHam hammy]] baddie, and Michael Wincott (formerly Guy of Gisbourne) returns as the top henchman. Finally, Music/BryanAdams is back for the AwardBaitSong (co-written by Michael Kamen, who scored both movies).



* SpiritualSuccessor: There is an argument to be made that this serves as one to ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves''. (Adaptations of classic swashbuckling adventures, Michael Wincott as the major supporting antagonist, a score by Michael Kamen, a pop song attached featuring Bryan Adams, etc)

** Some, including Creator/LeonardMaltin, compared the film to ''Film/YoungGuns'', largely due to the presence of Creator/KieferSutherland and Creator/CharlieSheen.

* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: The huge, ugly guard in the dungeons. [[spoiler:Porthos manages to simultaneously impale and crush the guy using some kind of twisted execution device that consists of two walls fitted with iron spikes. This is a Disney film, right? We even see BloodFromTheMouth dribble down his lips, as though the audience might not be sure he's actually dead after being skewered in multiple places by deadly, deadly spikes.]]

* BondOneLiner: Villain example at the start of the movie: After Rochefort executes a thief under Cardinal Richelieu's orders (after promising forgiveness to him "[[FalseReassurance in the name of God]]"), Richelieu chillingly says "One less mouth to feed."
