Added DiffLines:

** The 1989 version undercuts Henry's horrifying threats to the governor of Harfleur (raping virgins and murdering babies and such, see MoralDissonance above) by making it clear that Henry is bluffing in an effort to scare the governor into surrendering.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: The real life Henry V had a disfiguring scar on his face, gained at the Battle of Shrewsbury, which is why RealLife portraits of him are in profile. (He took an arrow to the face and lived. Really.) It's only mentioned in the text when Henry is wooing Katherine, and actors playing Henry are usually moderately attractive. Justified as BeautyEqualsGoodness. Compare to Richard III's EvilMakesYouUgly.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Prequel}}: Shakespeare wrote this one after his plays about Henry VI. The final monologue from the Chorus is basically saying "And you've already seen where things go from here."

* SpotlightStealingSquad: Scholars have speculated this is why Falstaff dies offstage, lest he steal the show as he did in ''Theater/HenryIV.''
