* CultClassic: The film is considered by most to be [[SoOkayItsAverage average at best]], but it does have its fans. This film being the premiere release of Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo's The Classics series in 1984 and resurfacing in 1991 to capitalize on ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'''s release helped, and Robin Hood himself got a SpiritualSuccessor in ''Disney/{{Zootopia's'' Nick Wilde.

** Hmm, for new Disney fans, Robin Hood looks a bit [[Disney/{{Zootopia}} familiar]]

* DuelingMovies: An odd example with ''Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves'' due to the marketing campaign for the ''Walt Disney Classics'' VHS reissue of Disney's ''Robin Hood'' lobbing a TakeThat to the theatrical release by claiming IT was the Robin Hood hit of the summer.

* [[VindicatedByCable Vindicated By Video]]: Due to its original lackluster standing and not doing well in theatrical reissues, Disney decided very quickly to release ''Robin Hood'' as the premiere film in The Classics: Walt Disney Home Video[=/=]WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyClassics series in 1984 since they didn't feel it had much future in theaters (there were some serious plans on releasing ''Robin Hood'' on VHS even before Eisner, Wells, and Katzenberg entered the Disney lot). This made it a decent hit and set the stage for ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'s'' subsequent video release, which changed the game altogether. ''Robin Hood'' did very well on video overall and was eventually released from the Vault, becoming a serious darkhorse in the canon, and that VHS and subsequent tapes helped build towards 2016's ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' with Nick Wilde; that film is one of the highest grossing and highest rated films of 2016.

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

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Meta example. Joanne Froggatt was never given the chance to rescue Kate from the Scrappy Heap, but she went on to portray the immensely popular Anna in ''DowntonAbbey'', a character that bears several passing similarities to Kate.

* ReplacementScrappy: Kate, who as the replacement of Marian (as Robin's girlfriend), Djaq (as the girl of the group) and Will (as the voice of the peasantry) was utterly ''doomed'' to embody this trope. It didn't help that she was also a text-book example of a FauxActionGirl, everybody's SatelliteLoveInterest and TheLoad, with a knack for getting kidnapped, a [[http://www.robinhood2006.com/gallerys3/Series3/episode4/slides/RHS3E4291.html ridiculous hairstyle]], a whiny voice, and the InformedAbility of [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/robinhood/characters/kate.shtml an imagination]].

* CreatorsPet: '''Kate.''' Her purpose in the show was to be the the TokenGirl, the DamselInDistress and the SatelliteLoveInterest, in that order, and in the most [[FauxActionGirl obnoxious]] [[ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike ways]] [[ClingyJealousGirl possible]]. Her astounding stupidity and utter uselessness were bad enough, but the worst of it was that Kate was simply [[JerkassSue Not A Very Nice Person]], despite the writers' desperate attempts to [[CharacterShilling shill]] the contrary.

* GodModeSue: Archer. Well, there's his name to start with, in honour of the super-special arrowhead-shaped birthmark on his stomach. He's introduced as the [[LongLostSibling long-lost brother]] of not one, but ''two'' of the most important characters on the show. He's irresistable to women, and one of his first scenes involves him bedding another man's wife. He's travelled in the Orient and returned with knowledge of Eastern warfare, which is ultimately used to blow up Castle Nottingham. He's as good an archer as Robin, fights with two katanas, and also chucks ninja-stars at people. He's [[EasilyForgiven forgiven instantly]] by his brothers after he's left them to die in a collapsed tunnel, and is given the leadership role of the gang by Robin himself. The BBC character profile describes him as a '''master''' of '''all''' weapons.
** The show was cancelled three episodes after his introduction, possibily because our television sets simply couldn't handle all this concentrated awesomeness.



** Though there are exceptions, the former group's fanfiction usually follows the basic "rape fantasy" scenario, in which Marian is forced to marry Guy against her will, only to find out that he's quite an acrobat in the bedroom, whilst the latter group either has Marian apologize for to him for ''her'' behavior, then treat him to some [[RedemptionEqualsSex Redemptive Sex]], or cuts out Marian and pairs Guy with a self-insert MarySue.

* ParvumOpus: One of two candidates, the other being ''Disney/TheAristocats'', the film ahead of this one in line in the DisneyAnimatedCanon, for this of the movies produced between Walt Disney's death and the 1984 management shift that introduced Michael Eisner, his partner Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Warner executive Frank Wells into Disney. That said, they are still enjoyable and not in any way "terrible" or destructive to the company like other contenders for the ParvumOpus of the canon as a whole.

* CryForTheDevil: Guy and Isabella in the WholeEpisodeFlashback are portrayed as socially awkward and ostracized kids. In the finale Guy strokes his sister's hair and later Isabella casts a regretful glance over her brother's body, reminding the audience that (as Isabella said earlier) they loved each other once.
