* DramaticIrony: Inigo has spent years training himself in the art of the sword, learning from every master he could, completely, single-mindedly focused on hunting down his nemesis so that they can engage in a FinalBattle... which barely even happens. They cross blades a couple of times, and then, before Inigo can finish cutting out Rugen's heart, the man just drops dead from fright.



* ExtraDigits: count Rugen's six fingers.

* GoodStepmother: Prince Humperdinck calls his stepmother evil because supposedly, all fairy tale stepmothers are; in reality she's very nice and the most beloved person in the kingdom, perhaps second only to Buttercup.

* TrueCraftsman: Domingo Montoya has the highest standards for himself and the swords he makes. He could be wealthy and renowned, but he doesn't want to make swords that will only be trophies for stupid elites. He is ecstatic at the prospect of making a sword for a six-fingered master fighter - but changes his mind when the six-fingered man sees only a product to buy, not a work of art. Domingo leaves his final sword - and a masterpiece of steel - to his son, Inigo.

** Interestingly enough, there ''was'' a period of time that could be said to be "after America" and "before Europe"; specifically, the 1500s, between the discovery of the Americas, and the Thirty Years War (which started in 1618), which so redefined the terms of the relations of states that it has been claimed to be the beginning of "Modern European History".

Although even if we accept this, the fact that Australia wasn't colonised by the British (and thus the convicts) until 1788 still throws a spanner into the timeline.

* HonoraryPrincess: Some people complained when Buttercup got engaged to Humperdinck, saying that only a Princess can get engaged to a Prince. So the court made her Princess of Hammersmith. Hammersmith is just a little lump of land at the back of the kingdom. Utterly pointless, it's unlikely she set foot in the place at any point.
