* PopularWithFurries: Before ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', this was probably ''the'' shining example (although ''WesternAnimation/FritzTheCat'' predates it by a full year). A very common thing to hear from a lot of furries was that this was their earliest memory and possibly their first foray into the fandom's main interest. It definitely helped that it was released on VHS at a time when the Internet boom was only a few years down the road. Many furries who grew up in the 70s through mid 90s cite this film as an influence on them. However, its influence has dwindled with time. It's still quite popular but often gets overlooked in exchange for other films like ''The Lion King'', ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'', or ''Zootopia''. Maid Marian and Robin Hood still get a good amount of fanworks nevertheless.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Prince John's [[PsychopathicManchild whiney and childish behavior]] either makes him one of the [[LaughablyEvil funniest]] or lamest Disney villains depending on who you ask.

Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedHero: The concept of "robbing from the rich and giving to the poor," since Robin Hood and his Merry Men basically mugged people who traveled through Sherwood Forest and gave their belongings to those who they thought deserved it more.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Was Sir Hiss' reaction to the idea of hanging Friar Tuck a case of EvenEvilHasStandards or a case of PragmaticVillainy?

* EarWorm: Roger Miller's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzFYb7_ySbU Whistle Stop]]" (the song used during the film's opening), ''especially'' after a vocal sample was sped up and SampledUp for the [[MemeticMutation Hamster Dance]].

* [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments Crowning Moment of Heartwarming]]: The Sexton's wife (a mouse) giving their last farthing to the empty poor-box and Friar Tuck is deeply touched.
--> '''Friar Tuck:''' Your last farthing? Little Sister, no-one can give more than that! Bless you both.
** With a little bit of FridgeBrilliance, one can realize that this exact argument was made by Jesus in the lesson of the Widow's Mite in Mark 12 and Luke 21.

* CompleteMonster: Isabella's husband, Squire Thornton, although he only appears physically in one episode, is quickly established to be this; even [[BigBad Vaisey]] has more [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes redeeming]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards qualities]] than this guy. Even before he showed up, he was established as being [[DomesticAbuse a vile and abusive husband]], but when he actually appears, it quickly becomes apparent why [[TheDreaded Isabella is justifiably terrified of him]]; he openly threatens her or people close to her with physical violence or [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil worse]] if she shows the slightest defiance to him, treats her as little better than a slave or possession, [[BadBoss kills one of his own men]] [[DisproportionateRetribution simply for looking at parts of a treasure hoard they've found]] and when Isabella (with Robin's help) contrives to try and get rid of him, [[VillainousBreakdown Thorton flies off the handle, comes storming back into Nottingham Castle and threatens to kill her in front of everyone]]. Overall, Thornton is such [[HateSink a nasty piece of work]] that even those among the outlaws who don't like Isabella [[SympathyForTheDevil empathize with her for having to suffer him]], and no tears are shed when Isabella, in her own words, finally does "what she should have done years ago" and [[LaserGuidedKarma fatally stabs the evil bastard]].

* OlderThanTheyThink: The idea of Gisborne murdering Marian was one of the ideas for the cancelled fourth series of ''RobinOfSherwood''.
** ''RobinOfSherwood'' also had Guy and Robin (actually [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute the second one]]) as half-brothers. And the idea of Middle Eastern outlaw started with that show.
