* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Brom Bones a vindictive bully who played a nasty trick on a harmless, lovestruck nerd, or a down-home, all-American good ol' boy who gave just desserts to a venal, manipulative coward? There is a strong modern trend to make Ichabod Crane be actually a heroic character, while Brom Bones is regarded as at best a JerkJock -- which are both far from Irving's intention to have Bones be the hero and Ichabod a superstitious wimpy moocher. On the other hand, Ichabod seemed more interested in his girlfriend's father's money than his girlfriend, so it's also kinda easy to make him an AssholeVictim.

** Some food for thought here on both sides of the argument. Earlier in the text it is said the Horsemen is riding looking for his head. Meaning he doesn't a head.
** When Ichabod sees the Horsemen he believes he is carrying a head that he throws at him
** Afterwards a smashed pumpkin is found- All of this seems to indicate Brom dressed as the Horsemen to scare Ichabod off.
** However let's also remember something here, the Headless Horseman has no head, meaning he has no eyes. He certainly can't see too well if he was real. The pumpkin is seemingly used as a projectile, which it succeeds in getting Ichabod off his horse. This is a pretty good soldier like move, something the Horsemen was. And after all his head was taken off by a projectile himself!

** One thing that's rather interesting - Disney actually has it rather faithfully, although [[AdaptationalVillainy playing Brom Bones's villainy up a tad more]], making it seem like TheBadGuyWins. But at the same time, try watching it with an adult perspective. As one Website/YouTube comment puts it:
--> "Me watching it at 10: Oh that jerk! Brom got the girl!"
--> "Me watching it at 20: ...wow...Ichabod is a gold digger."

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Brom Bones a vindictive bully who played a nasty trick on a harmless, lovestruck nerd, or a down-home, all-American good ol' boy who gave just desserts to a venal, manipulative coward? There is a strong modern trend to make Ichabod Crane be not merely the protagonist of the story but actually an heroic character, while Brom Bones is regarded as at best a JerkJock -- which are both far from Irving's intention to have Bones be the hero and Ichabod a superstitious wimpy moocher. On the other hand, Ichabod seemed more interested in his girlfriend's father's money than his girlfriend, so it's also kinda easy to make him an AssholeVictim.

* ValuesDissonance: A modern reader would likely find Ichabod and Brom both equally unsympathetic. A gold digger, and a bully.

* NightmareFuel: The ending of the 1999 CGI film "The Night of the Headless Horseman". [[spoiler: Our InUniverse narrator reveals he is Brom Bones, who made a DealWithTheDevil to have the Headless Horseman carry off Ichabod Crane. But, after getting what he wanted, he has to pay back the debt, and so he explains now he has to ''become'' a replacement Headless Horseman. Having said this, he ''pulls his head off his shoulders and lays it on the table'', asking his audience/the viewers to "look after it" while he goes and finds a new one. Cue a close-up of the creepy, UncannyValley decapitated head booming out an EvilLaugh as the final shot of the film.]]
