[[caption-width-right:345:The legend had it coming.]]

->''"We're ''men''''\\
''We're ''men in tights'',''\\
''Always on guard,''\\
''Defending the people's rights!"''
-->-- '''The Merry Men'''

Really, it was only a matter of time before Creator/MelBrooks turned his sights on the venerable legend of RobinHood and completely shredded it (again - see ''Series/WhenThingsWereRotten''). This anachronistic, irreverent romp through one of the best-known tales of the Western world runs roughshod over classic and modern adaptations alike, aiming most of its quips at Kevin Costner's ''[[Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves Prince of Thieves]]'' version but getting in a good many jabs at the classic ErrolFlynn ''Film/TheAdventuresOfRobinHood'' as well.

And unlike some ''other'' Robin Hoods, ''this'' one has an English accent! (Instead of an [[ErrolFlynn Australian]], [[RussellCrowe New Zealand]], or [[Creator/KevinCostner American]] one, that is. ItWillNeverCatchOn.)

----
!!This movie contains examples of:

* AbhorrentAdmirer: Latrine. Even her ''cardboard picture'' of Rottingham ends up cringing.
* AccidentalAimingSkills: "To tell you the truth, [[ShootTheRope I was aiming for the hangman]]!"
* AffablyEvil: The dungeon master in the opening scene, who acts more like a hotel concierge.
* AffectionateParody: Creator/MelBrooks' raison d'etre.
** The sheer number of {{Shout Out}}s to previous ''Robin Hood'' films (especially ''Film/TheAdventuresOfRobinHood'') is really impressive, especially the sets.
* AllWomenAreLustful: Brumhilda immediately tries to pick up Little John, and Maid Marian's locked chastity belt is a major frustration in her life. And let's not even get started on Latrine.
* AltarTheSpeed: Subverted.
* AmbiguouslyJewish: Prince John seems to do a pretty good amount of JewishComplaining.
* AnachronismStew: By RuleOfFunny.
* {{Angrish}}: The Sheriff of Rottingham, numerous times. Normally, he just transposes two words ("Over that boy hand"), or swaps syllables of words ("Struckey has loxed again"), or a little PronounTrouble ("I'll pay for this!") when mildly annoyed. But watching Robin and Marian kiss at the ball causes him to rant out the following sentence with every single word out of order.
-->'''KING ILLEGAL FOREST TO PIG WILD KILL IN IT A IS!!!'''
* ArrowCam: Parodied.
* ArrowCatch: See DisabilitySuperpower below.
* ArrowsOnFire: In the opening CreditsGag.
-->Every time they make a Robin Hood movie, they burn our village down!\\
LEAVE US ALONE, MEL BROOKS!
* AutomaticCrossbows: Used by Dirty Ezio, complete with laser sight and [[NoisyGuns lots of clicking.]]
** Not to mention [[IkeaWeaponry a long assembly sequence]].
* AwardBaitSong: "Marian" is a parody of the DisneyAnimatedCanon award bait, especially with the soft rock cover of it that plays over the credits, which was a quite common of various animated {{award bait song}}s at the time (such as CelineDion & Peabo Bryson's version of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast's'' title song, Music/LindaRonstadt & James Ingram's cover of ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail's'' ''Somewhere Out There'', and Bryson & Regina Belle's cover of ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'s'' ''A Whole New World'').
** It also may be more directly parodying Bryan Adams' "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" from ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves''.
%%* BackToBackBadasses:
%%-->'''Robin''': By the by, do you know preying mantis?
%%-->'''Ahchoo''': You're lookin' at him!
%%* BadassBack: Subverted.
%%-->'''Achoo''': Your back just got punched ''twice''.
* BadassBoast: In the song sung by the Merry Men:
-->''We may look like sissies''\\
''But watch what you say, or else we'll punch out your lights!''
* BaitAndSwitchComparison: At the feast after Robin deposits a hog on Prince John's table.
-->'''Sheriff:''' That's a wild boar!
-->'''Robin:''' No, that's a wild pig. (Points at Prince John) ''That's'' a [[FunWithHomophones wild bore!]]
* BadNewsInAGoodWay: TropeNamer
* BeardOfSorrow: They're complimentary at the Khalil Prison, so everyone fits in.
* BigDamnHeroes: Robin's crews came to his rescue just as [[ItMakesSenseInContext a chandelier fell on him]] during his fight with the Sheriff's guards.
* BladeLock: Subverted.
* BlindMistake: Blinkin's entire reason for being.
* BrawnHilda: Broomhilde.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Repeatedly. It's a signature Creator/MelBrooks trope. See also CameraAbuse, below.
* ButtMonkey: Rottingham.
* The Cameo:
** Isaac Hayes as Ahsneeze
** DomDeluise as Don Giovanni
** Creator/PatrickStewart as King Richard
* CameraAbuse: The camera moving in on Marian singing in the bath crashes through a window before sheepishly retreating. Also, the Abbott's staff smashing into the camera lens.
* CaptainObvious:
-->I will take these cotton balls from you with my hand and put them in my pocket.
-->They call me Little John. Oh, but [[IronicNickname don't let my name fool you]]; in real life, I'm very big.
* CardboardPrison: Parodied (as with everything else) in the intro, with the Robin and Ahsneeze escaping from Le Dungeon within five minutes of Robin getting tossed in.
* [[SeanConneryIsAboutToShootYou Cary Elwes Is About To Shoot You]]: With [[{{Multishot}} Six Arrows At Once]]!
* CelebrityParadox: At one point, they pull out the script to see what happens next.
** Or during the wedding:
--->'''Person in Crowd:''' Good morrow, Abbot.\\
'''Abbot:''' Good morrow.\\
'''Person in Crowd:''' Good morrow, Abbot.\\
'''Abbot:''' Good morrow.\\
'''Person in Crowd:''' Heeeeey [[AbbottAndCostello Abbbboooot!]]\\
'''Abbot:''' ...I ''hate'' that guy!
* CharacterFilibuster: Played for laughs.
** ''Twice'', and in quick succession. First with Robin as WinstonChurchill, then with Achoo ([[RunningGag BLESS YOU!]]) as MalcolmX (complete with glasses).
* CheckPlease: Prince John, when the fight during the banquet scene lands on his table.
* ChosenOne: Subverted. Robin's key [[spoiler:fits Marian's chastity belt, but it doesn't ''work'']].
** The sheriff had been using a jackhammer on the lock earlier; that can't have been good for the mechanism. Or perhaps it ''did'' rust in the bath.
*** Call a locksmith!
**** ''Call a locksmith!''
***** '''CALL A LOCKSMITH!!!'''
* CombatBreakdown: Literally ''and'' figuratively. Damn substandard quarterstaves...
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: As punishment for his treachery, King Richard names all the toilets in England after Prince John. Then he has him locked in the Tower of London. "Make him part of the tour."
* CoughSnarkCough: Yeah, we all believe that the misdeeds were totally the Sheriff's fault...
** *cough* Bullshit! *cough* Bullshit!
* CreatorCameo: Creator/MelBrooks as a Jewish rabbi peddling circumcisions and sacramental wine.
* CreepyChangingPainting: PlayedForLaughs with the sheriff's cardboard cutout.
* DeusAngstMachina: Parodied.
* DisabilitySuperpower: Blinkin.
-->'''Blinkin''': I heard that coming a mile away!\\
'''Robin''': Right-o, Blinkin, very good.\\
'''Blinkin''': Pardon? Who's talking?
** Don't forget when he beats the ''hell'' out of that pillar. For a blind man, Blinkin is ''really, '''really''' fast''.
*** And he bear-hugged Robin.
* DisasterDominoes: Robin takes out an entire corps of armored knights by hitting ''one'', who then falls into the next, who knocks down the one in front of him, who then...
* TheDon: The Sherriff enlists the help of Don Giovanni (Creator/DomDeLuise), a mafia boss from Jersey, to get rid of Robin Hood.
* DontExplainTheJoke: "And why not? It worked in ''Film/BlazingSaddles''."
** Possibly justified in that younger audiences might not have seen ''Blazing Saddles''.
* DoubleEntendre: "People call me 'Little John'. But, don't let my nickname fool you. In real life, I'm very big."
* DroitDuSeigneur: At the end, King Richard objects to the wedding of Robin and Marian on the basis that "I have not yet kissed the bride!" Less extreme than the usual example of this trope, but the same principle.
* EasyComeEasyGo: "I CAN ''SEE''! [''CRASH!''] No, I was wrong."
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Mervyn, the Sheriff of Rottingham.
* EverybodysDeadDave: Mercilessly parodying a similar scene in ''Prince of Thieves''.
-->'''Robin Hood:''' Blinkin, listen to me. They've taken the castle! \\
'''Blinkin:''' I thought it felt a bit drafty. Cor, this never would have happened if your father was alive. \\
'''Robin Hood:''' He's dead? \\
'''Blinkin:''' Yes. \\
'''Robin Hood:''' And my mother? \\
'''Blinkin:''' She died of pneumonia while... oh, you were away... \\
'''Robin Hood:''' My brothers? \\
'''Blinkin:''' They were all killed by the plague. \\
'''Robin Hood:''' [''sounding a little sadder''] My dog, Pongo? \\
'''Blinkin:''' Run over by a carriage. \\
'''Robin Hood:''' [''sounding a little more hopeful''] My goldfish, Goldie? \\
'''Blinkin:''' Eaten by the cat. \\
'''Robin Hood:''' [''on the verge of tears''] My cat? \\
'''Blinkin:''' Choked on the goldfish. \\
[''{{beat}}''] \\
'''Blinkin:''' Oh, it's good to be home, ain't it, Master Robin?
* ExactWords: ''Constantly''.
-->'''Robin''': Watch my back!
-->''[a soldier runs up and hits him two times]''
-->'''Atchoo''': Your back just got punched twice.
** "Lend me your ears!" [''one [[HavingAHeart inevitable joke]] later''] "That's disgusting..."
** "HA! WalkThisWay!" [''Sheriff tosses his head and struts away, Robin and guards shrug and do as he said'']
** When Marian tries to talk Robin out of attending the archery tournament:
-->'''Marian:''' Promise you won't go!
-->'''Robin:''' Okay, I promise you won't go.
* {{Expy}}: Cary Elwes is essentially playing [[Film/ThePrincessBride Westley]] playing Robin Hood. And in the ''Film/{{Godfather}}'' scene, Don Giovanni is [[Film/{{Godfather}} Don Corleone]], Filthy Luca is [[Film/{{Godfather}} Luca Brasi]], and Dirty Ezio is Film/DirtyHarry. Bonus point for the last one, for being a convincing doppelganger of Creator/{{ClintEastwood}}.
* EyeOfNewt: And Latrine's [[LethalChef the cook...]]
* FallingChandelierOfDoom: Right trope... wrong rope. Fell on Robin, not the guards.
* FalseReassurance: Semantics, semantics...
* {{Fanfare}}: The Sheriff gets a hilarious one, played without trumpets.
-->''SHUT UP, YOU '''BLOODY FOOLS!'''''
** During the archery tournament, trumpets are played directly into Prince John's ears.
* FateWorseThanDeath: The Sheriff of Rottingham reluctantly agrees to marry Latrine if she saves his life. He quickly regrets that decision.
* {{Flynning}}: Parodied, played straight, and then spanked like a naughty child.
* FunWithSubtitles: As Marian's hefty nurse prepares to drop into the saddle, her horse is thinking, "You've got to be kidding!"
* GagPenis: By way of a suggestive shadow puppet and a scabbard. It makes the Merry Men burst into spontaneous applause.
* GaleForceSound: When Robin sings with Marian in his arms, the force of his singing blows her hair back and messes up her tiara.
* {{Gesundheit}}: A RunningGag regarding Ahchoo ([[SelfDemonstratingArticle BLESS YOU!]]). His name is frequently heard as a sneeze -- Ahsneeze is his father's name, incidentally.
* GloveSlap:
-->'''Sheriff of Rottingham''': I challenge you... to a duel!\\
''(Sheriff slaps Robin Hood across the face with his glove. Robin then grabs a gauntlet from a suit of armor and slaps the Sheriff back, flooring him.)''\\
'''Robin Hood''': I accept!
* GodivaHair: Maid Marian coming out of the bath.
* GroinAttack: Unintentional on Blinkin's part:
-->'''Achoo''' ''(extending his hand)'': What's up man?\\
'''Blinkin''': How do you do? ''(reaches out to shake Achoo's hand, but ends up hitting him in the happy spot)''\\
'''Achoo''' ''(in much pain)'': I've been better.
** Another unintentional one when Robin [[RagingStiffie discovers]] Maid Marian's chastity belt.
-->'''Maid Marian''': It's an Everlast.\\
'''Robin''': (''in pain'') I'll bet..
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday
-->''We're butch!''
* HavingAHeart: "Lend me your ears!"
* HomeGuard: The Sheriff and his men. Robin takes a [[TakeThat cheap shot]] at the Sheriff, who seized his family's property while Robin was fighting in the Crusades.
-->'''Robin:''' ''[[TakeThat My father couldn't get me into the National Guard.]]''
-->'''Crowd:''' ''Oooooooohh...''
* HonorBeforeReason: Robin decides to fight Little John to cross the bridge, even though, as Ahchoo points out, it "ain't exactly the Mississippi." Robin insists that it's "the principle of the thing."
* IncessantMusicMadness: Prince John calls for the knights to stop Robin and his men. About 50 men in suits of armor start marching into the room from all sides, the clanging of their armor getting louder and louder and louder. After several minutes of this, Prince John, who is holding his ears, says, "I hope this is worth THE NOISE!!!"
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: ... too bad about the chastity belt, though.
-->'''Sheriff''': That's going to chafe my willy.
-->'''Marian''': [''as the Sheriff attempts to open it with a jackhammer''] No matter what you do, I shall ''never submi-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-it!''
* IKnowKungFaux:
-->'''Robin''': Do you know "Praying Mantis"?
-->'''Ahchoo''': You're ''looking'' at him.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Subverted. [[RuleOfThree He was aiming for the hangman.]]
* InnocentInnuendo: See GagPenis, above.
* InsurmountableWaistHighFence: The bridge that Little John guards, spanning a stream that's only a few inches wide and deep.
** Achoo [[LampshadeHanging notices this]] and tries to explain it to Robin:
--->'''Achoo:''' You don't have to do this. Look...this ain't exactly the Mississippi. ''(Jumping across for emphasis)'' I'm on one side... I'm on the other side! I'm on the east bank... I'm on the west bank! It is not that critical.
--->'''Robin:''' That's not the point. It's [[HonorBeforeReason the principle of the thing.]]
* ItWillNeverCatchOn:
-->'''Crowd''': A ''black'' sheriff?!?\\
'''Achoo''': Hey, why not? It worked in ''Film/BlazingSaddles''...
* JustYouAndMeAndMyGUARDS: The Sheriff of Rottingham supplies the TropeNamer.
* KissingTheGround: Parodied. Robin kisses the ground noisily when he lands in England, then spits sand out of his mouth.
* KnifeNut: Will Scarlet.
* KnifeOutline: Using [[MoreDakka six arrows]], fired all at once.
* {{Knighting}}: One of the few things played straight. Robin Hood gets knighted by King Richard after the climax.
* LandInTheSaddle: Marian leaps from a balcony onto her horse. When her large lady-in-waiting attempts to do the same, her horse dodges. Given that she ''cracks the stones'' the horse was previously standing on, you can't blame the horse.
-->'''Brunhilde:''' Fahrvergkügel! If I vas you, I vould ''never'' do zat again! Any qvestions? ''(horse shakes its head)'' Gut.
* LargeHam: King Richard. Prior to him, the Sheriff handles the rest of the movie's hamminess; more than half his lines are either intensely sinister whispers or resounding shouts.
* LastSecondWordSwap: Marian hopes someone will come along who has the key to her.... heart.
* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: When Robin sings "The Night is Young" to Marian, some of the Merry Men join in as the background music. Marian keeps turning her head every time they pitch in, wondering where it's coming from.
* LighterAndSofter: Compared to ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves''.
* MalcolmXerox: Ahchoo's RousingSpeech to the villagers.
* MatronChaperone: Brumhilde. Her entire job is to ensure that Maid Marian stays that way.
* MistakenForGay: Rabbi Tuckman mistakenly labels all of the Merry Men as this upon their first meeting.
-->'''Rabbi Tuckman''': (shaky hand motion) [[YiddishAsASecondLanguage Faygeles?]]
-->'''Robin Hood''': No, we're straight. Just... merry.
* MisplacedWildlife: Like everything else in the movie, intentional and played for laughs. The 12th Century Fox that they use to send a message[[note]]i.e. a pun on "to fax"[[/note]] is a grey fox, which aren't native to England. To add to the absurdity, it makes the sound of [[{{Flipper}} a dolphin]] as it runs off. The "happy little bluebird" isn't a native species, either.
* MomentKiller: Marian's nursemaid. That's her ''job''. And, of course, a shout out to ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}''.
-->'''Brumhilde''': You aren't married yet! Before you do it, you must go through it! Or else I blew it.
* {{Multishot}}: Featured on the posters.
* NeutralFemale: Marian to a painful extent during the swordfight between Robin and the Sheriff. She doesn't even try to get off the bed.
* NoFourthWall: Constantly.
* [[NoisyGuns Noisy Crossbows]]: As with everything else, done for giggles.
* OffhandBackhand: Do You Know Praying Mantis?
** During the brawl at the feast, Blinkin gives Robin a drink, and as he downs it, he carries on a swordfight in this vein.
* OffingTheAnnoyance: Almost invoked when a mime annoys the Sheriff to the point that he just shouts 'Kill him!', before he's stopped by Prince John, who says 'You know, a mime is a terrible thing to waste.'
* PigLatin: The New Latin used by the Abbot.
-->''Oh ordLay, ivethgay usway ouryay essingsblay. Amen-ay!''
* PissTakeRap: The Merry Men at one point.
* PoliceBrutality: We first see Ahchoo when he's being worked over by Rottingham's grunts.
-->'''Ahchoo:''' Man, I hope somebody's gettin' a video of this!
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: In spades. Notably...
-->"Care for some...dessert?"
-->''[[ItMakesSenseInContext Mashes his face with a grapefruit.]]''
* PrecisionFStrike: When Blinkin is trying to get down from the observation tower, he ends up knocking over the ladder, which he only discovers after leaning forward to grab it.
-->'''Blinkin:''' Oh, shit!
* PrettyBoy: Will [[Film/GoneWithTheWind Scarlet O'Hara]].
* ProducePelting: At Robin, after he actually ''loses'' an archery contest.
-->'''Blinkin:''' Oh, they've opened the salad bar.
* ProjectileKiss: Robin blows a kiss to Marian as he leaves Prince John's castle. Brumhilde intercepts it.
* PromiseMeYouWontX: "All right. I promise you won't go."
* RageAgainstTheAuthor: The villagers in the opening sequence yell at Creator/MelBrooks for burning down their village. ''Again''.
* RagingStiffie: Robin's painful method of discovering Marian wears a chastity belt ("''clang''!"). PlayedForLaughs in a later scene where the scabbard of Robin's sword rises and creates a suggestive shadow.
* ReadingAheadInTheScript: When Filthy Luca bests Robin, during Prince John's archery contest, by splitting his arrow. Robin literally pulls out the movie's script and quickly flips through it, 'til he finds where it says he gets another shot. Prince John and the Sheriff of Rottingham, along with the rest of the cast, consult their own copies and see that he's right. Cue Robin's "Patriot Arrow".
* [[RealMenWearPink Real Men Wear Tights]]: ''[[GroinAttack Tight]]'' tights!
* RepeatAfterMe: Walk this way, indeed.
* RousingSpeech: Subverted and played straight, in that order.
* RunningGag: Robin lapsing into long-winded speeches, him and Maid Marian being prevented from kissing, people mistaking Achoo's name for a sneeze, the Sheriff's dyslexia, Prince John's mole moving around his face......
-->'''Prince John:''' I have a ''mole''?
* ScarpiaUltimatum: A variant -- Marian [[PleaseIWillDoAnything promises to marry Rottingham]] if he will spare Robin. The Sheriff has Robin standing at the gallows anyway, just for insurance.
** Inverted at the end when Rottingham is run through. Latrine has a magic pill that will save his life[[note]]Quite literally a Life Saver[[/note]]...but she'll only give it to him if ''he'' promises to marry ''her''.
* SequelSnark: The rapping GreekChorus jokes about reappearing in ''Robin Hood 2''.
* ShadowDiscretionShot: Subverted for laughs.
* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler:Robin is revealed about midway through the film that he has the key to Maid Marian's chastity belt. By the end of the film, after defeating the Sheriff of Rottingham and marrying Maid Marian, when he and Marian finally prepare to do the deed, it turns out his key doesn't work... Apparently it wasn't the real key. Or Rottingham's attempts to break the lock open messed it up. Or Marian just spent too long in the bath. [[CuttingTheKnot They decided to just call the locksmith.]]]]
* ShootTheRope: [[OverlyLongGag Not what he was aiming at.]]
* ShotgunWedding: Marian volunteers for one with Rottingham to save Robin from the gallows. Later, Rabbi Tuckman seems to think that Robin's gotten Marian pregnant (it's actually to get Brumhilde to quit cockblocking):
-->'''Rabbi''': Married in a hurry! Please invite me to the bris.
* ShoutOut:
-->A ''black sheriff''?!\\
Hey, why not? It worked in ''Film/BlazingSaddles''.
** Also, that hangman sure looks familiar...
** Also:
--->Wasn't your mole on the other side?\\
[[YoungFrankenstein I have a mole?]]
** And...
--->'''Rabbi Tuckman:''' ''[[Film/HistoryOfTheWorldPartI It's good to be the king.]]''
** Don't forget the screaming kid:
--->'''Boy''': Well, it's getting late and I've got to go [[HomeAlone home alone]] now. Ahhhhhh!
** When Robin fails to jump on his horse:
--->'''Ahchoo:''' Man, Film/WhiteMenCantJump!
** [[AbbottAndCostello HEY ABBBBOOOOOOT!!!]]
--->'''Abbot: I HATE THAT GUY!'''
** When the camera crashes through the wall, which was done in ''HighAnxiety''.
** "[[Film/{{TheGodfather}} We'll make him an offer he can't refuse]]", and the whole Don Corle..Don Giovanni scene. "I was just gonna say that!!". Also during this scene, Dirty Ezio is a doppelganger for ''Film/{{DirtyHarry}}'' 's Creator/{{ClintEastwood}}.
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: The moonlight serenade.
* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''Series/WhenThingsWereRotten''.
* StopDrowningAndStandUp: In about an inch of water.
* SwordOverHead
* SwordSparks: Lampshaded.
* TakeThat: To ''Prince of Thieves'', most obviously in the line: "Unlike other Robin Hoods, ''I'' can speak with an English accent."
** Both Italian and French versions say: "I'm not someone who DancesWithWolves".
** The German version has him say that he doesn't cost ("[[Creator/KevinCostner Kosten]]") the producers several million.
* ThatMakesMeFeelAngry:
-->'''Sheriff of Rottingham:''' I've been angry at you before Loxley. But now I'm really PISSED OFF!
-->'''Ahchoo:''' Pissed off? If I was that close to a horse's wiener, I'd worry about getting pissed ''on!''
* ThemeTuneRap
* ThrowingDownTheGauntlet: Parodied: the Sheriff of Rottingham slaps Robin with a glove to challenge him to a duel, and Robin counters with an ''actual'' gauntlet by way of accepting the challenge. Rottingham then lays out the terms of the duel, which happen to include [[JustYouAndMeAndMyGuards calling in a whole mess of guards]].
* TitleDrop: A funny variation.
--> '''Rabbi Tuckman:''' Robin of Locksley? I just came back from Maid Marian, the lady whose heart you stole. You [[Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves prince of thieves]] you!
** A straighter (but still funny) variation would be the musical number "Men In Tights" in the middle of the movie.
* TrainingThePeacefulVillagers: Parodied.
* TrickArrow: Laser-guided Patriot Arrow.
* TrollBridge: Guarded by Little John.
* UncleTomfoolery: Parodied by DaveChappelle.
* {{Understatement}}: Robin briefly complains that his noose is a little tight. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshade]] courtesy of the [[StealthPun hangman]].
* UnfortunateNames: Latrine. Her ancestors changed it ''to'' Latrine -- it used to be "Shithouse."
** Also Ahchoo, son of [[IncrediblyLamePun Ahsneeze]].
*** '''BLESS YOU!!!'''
* VillainsWantMercy: Prince John tries to beg his way out of trouble with King Richard.
--> '''John''': It's not my fault. I got a lot of bad advice from Rottingham.
--> '''Merry Men''': [[CoughSnarkCough *cough* Bullshit! *cough* Bullshit]]!
* VisualInnuendo: The moonlight serenade.
* VisualPun: Look closely at the magic pill Latrine gives the Sheriff to "save his life."[[note]]For British viewers, what you call Polo mints are called Life Savers in the States.[[/note]]
** Also,
--->Lend me your ears!\\
[''cue [[HavingAHeart inevitable joke]]'']\\
...that's disgusting.
** In addition, Dom's little iguana apparently has a problem with narcolepsy, a reptile dysfunction. How sad. Either that or he can't keep it up...
* WalkThisWay: Led by the Sheriff of Rottingham after the archery contest.
* WeddingDeadline
* WeWillMeetAgain: Parodied and subverted.
-->'''Thug''': You haven't seen the last of us!
-->''(Robin does his [[KnifeOutline six arrows at once thing]], pinning him to the tree)''
-->'''Thug''' ''(sheepishly)'': You've seen the last of us.
* WhatAreYouInFor: "...Jaywalking."
* {{Whatever}}: "Hold this, Father." "Rabbi." / [[IronicEcho "Thank you, your majesty, here's your knife." "Sword."]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: We never see the results of Prince John and Latrine's plan to get the Sheriff drunk.
** Or, for that matter, the potion she promised John to poison Robin.
* YiddishAsASecondLanguage: Really, most movies Creator/MelBrooks has been in.
* YouFightLikeACow
