* CompleteMonster: In this version of [[Myth/RobinHood the legends]], Robin's ArchEnemy, [[BigBad Sheriff George of Nottingham]], is trying to usurp the throne of England from UsefulNotes/RichardTheLionheart. He tries to convince Robin's father to join him, and kills him when he refuses. He then trumps up charges of Devil worship so he can seize Locksley as his own, [[EyeScream has a castellan's eyes put out]] for doubting the charges, and becomes a cruel despot who [[WouldHurtAChild has children killed for hunting on his land]] and sexually exploits women. When Robin first defies the Sheriff, he threatens to CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon. The Sheriff then gives [[TheDragon Guy of Gisborne]] a fortnight to capture Robin Hood, and [[YouHaveFailedMe runs him through with a sword when he fails]]. After that, the Sheriff attacks the Merry Men's village and captures captives, including children, whom he threatens to hang if [[LoveInterest Maid Marian]] doesn't marry him. On their wedding day, the Sheriff decides to hang some of them anyways, starting with a kid, before Robin rescues them all. The Sheriff then [[AttemptedRape tries to force himself on Marian]] as the Bishop is saying the wedding vows.

* BaseBreaker: Over the All-American Creator/KevinCostner not even trying to do a British accent for the title role.

* DracoInLeatherPants[=/=]EvilIsSexy: The Sheriff of Nottingham gets this treatment, with many female fans finding him more attractive than the hero. It probably helps that Creator/AlanRickman's performance is played to such hammy perfection that he steals pretty much every scene he appears in.

* NewerThanTheyThink: Rumor has it that the reason this film borrows several elements from ''Series/RobinOfSherwood'' (including the Moorish Merry Man and a dose of Celtic mysticism) is that the writer hadn't done enough research to realize that ''Robin of Sherwood'' had invented those bits, and thought they were standard parts of the legend.

* NeverLiveItDown: Kevin Costner still gets ribbed on for playing a ''British'' hero without a proper British accent - sometimes affectionately, sometimes not. Never mind the fact that a modern British accent is no more accurate than an American accent.
