* EveryScarHasAStory: Invoked by Henry in the St Crispin's Day speech:
--> He that shall live this day, and see old age,
--> Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
--> And say 'To-morrow is Saint Crispian.'
--> Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
--> And say 'These wounds I had on Crispian's day.'

** Branagh's film includes a smattering of dialogue from the ''Henry IV'' plays so that Falstaff can be an onscreen character and the references to him won't seem as odd to anyone unfamiliar with the preceding plays.

* BritainIsOnlyLondon: Averted -- significantly in that, historically, it was an ''English'' army that marched to Agincourt; Shakespeare ignores this to throw in the Scots, Welsh, and Irish contingents. At the time, Scotland was actually allied with France, and even more extremely, Ireland was in the middle of a very nasty rebellion, effectively making Macmorris a TokenEnemyMinority.
** Although it should be noted that Welshmen fought on the side of England during this time period, and that many Irish and Scotsmen were mercenaries, so their inclusion, whilst historically inaccurate, is not historically ''implausible.''

At The Welsh are at least somewhat accurate--by Henry V's time, Wales was already joined to England at the hip, and Welshmen fought in nearly all the same battles the English did--but the time, Scotland was actually allied with France, and even more extremely, Ireland was in the middle of a very nasty rebellion, effectively making Macmorris a TokenEnemyMinority.

* TheGhost: For a character who dies without ever appearing onstage, Falstaff comes up quite often. This is largely because he was a major reason for the popularity of the ''HenryIV'' plays; the epilogue to ''2 Henry IV'' even promises he'll appear in the sequel.

*** Then again, Shakespeare puts the English numbers at 12000 ("'Tis five to one, and they are all fresh") so it's not as bad as it could have been.
