* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:Robin destroys Nottingham Castle with a single arrow in the GrandFinale. Extra points for doing so whilst a lethal poison that will kill him in about fifteen minutes' time is running through his body.]]
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Robin waiting in Marian's room after [[spoiler:her father's death]] and comforting her as she weeps before telling her that he has a horse waiting to take her to Sherwood Forest.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: All of the series 3 episode ''Do You Love Me?'', including anything Prince John says or does, Gisborne and the Sheriff's suspicions that the other may have poisoned their meal, and Gisborne's gloriously camp little wave after the Sheriff accidentally hits a villager with an arrow he intended for Gisborne.



* ShipSinking: Despite being one of the most popular ships among the fandom (and at times, among the writers too), the Guy/Marian ship is eventually sunk by Guy himself, not just when he [[spoiler:kills her]] but when he admits to Robin [[spoiler:with his dying breath]] that "she was always yours." Robin then goes on to [[spoiler:reunite with Marian in Heaven]], at which point she tells him that she'll be his wife "now and forever, my love." Could a ship possibly ''get'' more sunk than Guy/Marian?

* {{Tearjerker}}: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRi0qfeeRdk Not in Nottingham]]" is ''hardcore'' for a song from a Disney movie.
-->''I'm inclined to believe''\\
''if we weren't so down''\\
''we'd up and leave.''\\
''We'd up and fly if we had wings for flyin'''\\
''Can't you see the tears we're cryin'?''\\
''Can't there be some happiness for me?''\\
''Not in Nottingham.''
** "Love" is bittersweet at best, depressing at worst. It's about how time flies, life is short, and only love lasts forever...not exactly the best accompaniment to Robin and Marian's happy moonlit stroll at the start of their new life together.
** The moment when Robin is due to be executed is surprisingly poignant. Marian pleads PleaseSpareHimMyLiege, claiming she loves him. Prince John scoffs and asks if Robin even loves her back. Cue an aching heartbeat of silence as Marian tearfully waits for his answer -- which is of course "Marian my darling, I love you more than life itself."

* NightmareFuel:
** John going AxCrazy against Sir Hiss. Having a PsychopathicManchild chasing you through a castle that is burning to the ground is probably not a very pleasant experience. The thumb sucking somehow made it worse.
-->'''Sir Hiss''': HELP! HE'S GONE STARK RAVING MA''AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA''D
** The scene where Robin is captured at the archery tournament and sentenced to death. One of the royal drummer starts doing a solitary drum roll as a black-hooded executioner ( a red-eyed rhino, no less) approaches with his axe.
** Both Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham are usually AffablyEvil or LaughablyEvil, but there are moments that show them as the vicious tyrant and petty thug they respectively are.
** Despite Prince John being one of Disney's least threatening villains, something has got to be said for the scene of him stewing on his throne (right after Friar Tuck's arrest). It is legitimately ''terrifying''. For a minute or so, he is absolutely silent - no foppish Peter Ustinov voice to deflate the image - and all we can see is the pure unadulterated seething ''hatred and fury'' on his face. Even Sir Hiss, who regularly isn't afraid to talk back to his boss, is downright scared.

* CriticalDissonance: It's very polarizing among critics and historians (and the Disney animators themselves), but nonetheless it was a big financial hit and loved by generations of Disney fans.

** Robin's hat is too big for Skippy, and King Richard's crown is too big for Prince John. If you look closely, one of the main staff members is Creator/DonBluth, who went on to use similar imagery in ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail''.

*** '''Instead''' The place is rather empty, with only about twenty rhinos, ten wolves and only TWO vultures are actually awake and patrolling. Prince John, Sir Hiss, and the Sheriff are definitely asleep, since they are seen like that. The vultures are quickly taken out of the picture, and, while Little John rescues the townsfolk prisoners including Tuck, Robin Hood climbs into Prince John's bedroom and loots it like the coach at the beginning of the film. Hiss finally wakes up, and starts a commotion that brings the guards out, but in the ensuing battle, the Sheriff sets fire to the castle tower, destroying it and at least damaging the castle itself. Robin Hood escapes within an inch of his life, and with all the tax money and prisoners.
