** Can also be considered this with the comedy ''Film/RobinHoodMenInTights'' and, of all things, the animated Disney version of ''Disney/RobinHood'', which made a small TakeThat to this film in the commercial for its [[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo 1991]] ''Walt Disney Classics'' video reissue.

* ThrowItIn: Creator/ChristianSlater ad-libbed Will Scarlett's line of "Fuck me, he cleared it!", after Robin and Azeem are catapulted over the castle wall. Creator/KevinReynolds kept it in the film because it was funny, despite the historical inaccuracy.

* FollowTheLeader: The film copies so many of the unique and distinctive elements of the 1980s British Robin Hood TV series ''Series/RobinOfSherwood'' that the creators of the latter actually briefly wondered whether they should sue. They quickly decided against the inevitable hassle and stresses, and just waved it all off.

Including ones set in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance or swashbuckler films in general.

** Could double as ArtisticLicenseHistory, as the producers wanted Connery in the film in some way, and after he turned down being Robin Hood's father, Richard was the most likely role after that (and he is a very kingly actor).
