* MagnumOpus: It is what Scott is most famous for and is considered the best Robin Hood story out there even if the character has a secondary role. All screen adaptations are even considered superior to the ErrolFlynn film TheAdventuresOfRobinHood.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: ''Yes'' Bois-Gilbert is an attempted rapist and StalkerWithACrush ''but'' he is also willing to give up everything he's worked for and ever wanted for Rebecca's sake which puts him one up on the gallant Ivanhoe.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Scott is sometimes credited with having transferred RobinHood to the time of UsefulNotes/RichardTheLionHeart -- but in reality he was adopting a tradition that dated back to Scottish historian John Major in early [[TheHouseOfTudor Tudor]] times and was firmly held by Joseph Ritson, the author of the most influential study of the RobinHood legend in Scott's own time.

* [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids What Do You Mean, It's Not For Kids?]]: Odd, that a novel written is such PurpleProse, dealing with dead-and-gone historical figures, with themes of racial and religious hatred, having such extremely disturbing scenes as the AttemptedRape of Rebecca, the threatened ColdBloodedTorture of Isaac, and the [[KillItWithFire immolations]] of the [[SelfMadeOrphan parricide]] Front-de-Bœuf and his treacherous cast-off mistress Ulrica should have been wildly popular for well over a century with children.
