* TheyJustDidntCare: Though Scott contrasts his attitude with that of his friend Mat Lewis (who said, "could he have derived ... advantage from making his heroine [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe blue]], blue she should have been"), he does lay claim to enough artistic licence to include whatever details seem colourful and probable, especially as most of his readers [[MST3KMantra wouldnt care anyway]].
* [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids What Do You Mean, It's Not For Kids?]]: Odd, that a novel written in 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-Buf and his treacherous cast-off mistress Ulrica should have been wildly popular for well over a century with children.

* CaptainObviousReveal: "Robin of Locksley," a brilliant shot with a bow who leads a merry band of outlaws in Sherwood forest, is revealed to be the secret identity of... none other than [[spoiler:Robin Hood]]! All right, maybe it wasn't originally ''quite'' as much of a Captain Obvious Reveal as it is today, because Scott ''[[NewerThanTheyThink invented]]'' several of the tropes that became stock parts of the [[spoiler:Robin Hood]] legend. Still, any reader with even the tiniest familiarity with the genre must have seen it coming a mile away.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: ''Yes'' Bois-Guilbert 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.

* 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.

* 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.
