* GreyAndGrayMorality: Neither the French nor the English are cast in a particularly flattering light, and the two armies are shown internally ridiculing each other for the exact same perceived flaws.



* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Talbot and Duke Humphrey. Interesting to point out that the only two ReasonableAuthorityFigure in the whole trilogy die early and that the rest suffer from ChronicBackstabbingDisorder

* WordOfDante: Most of the rose symbolism related to "The Wars of the Roses" originates from this play (and Henry VII's Tudor rose), not the historical conflict.

* ManipulativeBastard: Half the cast, but Somerset is probably the biggest of all being behind putting Margaret on the throne and removing Humphrey as the power behind the throne. Margaret herself, Somersets ally (and lover), is almost as bad, except that Somerset is behind her machinations...at least, in Part 1.

The play opens with the funeral of the great warrior king HenryV (though his play would be written later), and we see already that the English nobles are beginning to feud among themselves.

* AnachronismStew: A character is referred to as a "Machiavel" during the play, at least one generation before Creator/NiccoloMachiavelli was born and even longer before he ever wrote ''Literature/ThePrince''.



* AFatherToHisMen: Literally in Talbot's case as his son fights and dies under his command.

** Also Sir John Fastolff. The battle portrayed in the play was due to rashness on Talbot's part, whilst Fastolf was a cautious, conscientious soldier who got the blame for Talbot's defeat.

* OneSteveLimit: The First Folio lists Fastolf's name as [[Theatre/HenryIV "Falstaff."]] Modern performances and printings use "Fastolf" to avoid confusion with the more popular character who died in ''HenryV''.
