There have been many Zorro movies (notably the 1920 Silent {{Swashbuckler}} ''The Mark of Zorro'' starring DouglasFairbanks and its 1940 TwentiethCenturyFox sound re-make with Tyrone Power), at least six television series (three of them [[AnimatedAdaptation animated]]), a couple live-action ones, some [[strike:professional FanFic]] novels by other authors reinterpreting the character, one Hispanic SoapOpera ("Zorro: La Espada y la Rosa") based on one of these novels (the one written by Creator/IsabelAllende, if you wonder), a few ComicBook adaptations, and even an Anime series (''Anime/KaiketsuZorro''). There were two films in 1998 (''Film/TheMaskOfZorro'') and 2005 (''Film/TheLegendOfZorro'') with Anthony Hopkins as the aging hero, Antonio Banderas as his protege [[LegacyCharacter and heir]] and Catherine Zeta Jones as Hopkins' daughter and Banderas' ActionGirlfriend.

* PublicDomainCharacter: It's complicated. With 1919 being the year of the character's first publication, he is public domain, but [[http://www.zorro.com/about/ Zorro Productions Inc.]] claims to "control the worldwide trademarks and copyrights in the name visual likeness and the character of Zorro." While [[http://www.leagle.com/decision/20011304156FSupp2d1148_11208/SONY%20PICTURES%20v.%20FIREWORKS%20ENTERTAINMENT? this isn't strictly true,]] Zorry Productions Inc. has litigated in spite of court decisions. In other words, while there's no copyright, they will still likely sue people for using the character. It's all enough of a headache to navigate that in at least one instance of change-through-homage, Creator/{{Nintendo}} made the female Mexican sniper "The Fox" in ''VideoGame/CodeNameSteam'' as a vaguely defined daughter of Zorro instead of just using the man himself.

* PublicDomainCharacter: A massive [[SubvertedTrope subversion]].

* AdaptationDisplacement: The first Zorro movie with Douglas Fairbanks is the source for the classic costume of Zorro and the use of a RoyalRapier in place of a cavalry sword, and also influenced the author, who was still alive, [[RetCanon to revise his stories to use that costume]].

*** ''Zorro the Gay Blade'' also parodied this by having Diego slash at a candle, apparently missing, but as soon as the Aldante turns his back Diego picks up the severed candle and uses it to light his cigarette before discreetly putting it back.
