!!YMMV for the [[Disney/RobinHood 1973 Disney film]]:

* [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments Crowning Moment of Heartwarming]]: The Sexton's wife (a mouse) giving their last farthing to the empty poor-box and Friar Tuck is deeply touched.
--> '''Friar Tuck:''' Your last farthing? Little Sister, no-one can can give more than that! Bless you both.
* 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.
* CultClassic
* EarWorm: Roger Miller's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzFYb7_ySbU Whistle Stop]]" used during the film's opening was sped up and used for the hampsterdance.com [[MemeticMutation phenomenon]].
* HarsherInHindsight: This film is credited for helping create FurryFandom and it still has beautiful character designs and occasionally witty dialogue. However, since the release of DreamWorksAnimation's ''Film/KungFuPanda'', a critically acclaimed, Oscar nominated feature with a lavish budget and soulful furry story, the weaknesses of ''Robin Hood'' have become all too clear.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** 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''.
** A Creator/{{Disney}} movie with a lion who is a king... [[Disney/TheLionKing You don't think?]]
* HoYay: Sir Hiss cheers up Prince John by using his tongue to tickle Prince John's ear, and when Little John in disguise befriends Prince John, Sir Hiss was extremely jealous. Hiss doesn't do it intentionally (he is a ''snake'', after all), and while it does tickle PJ, he finds it annoying. On the other hand, the fact that Hiss sleeps in John's bedroom with him, for no discernible reason, is a bit...questionable. (He trusted him ''that'' much?)
** And he identifies Robin Hood at the tournament by ''looking up into his disguise''.
** The film's AmbiguouslyGay portrayal of Prince John is kind of funny, considering that historically speaking, Richard's the one whose sexuality is up for debate.
* MemeticMutation: Anyone remember The Hampster Dance? Guess what the original sample was from.
** {{Yiff}} [[http://captionsearch.com/pix/tmvlrsdyx.jpg in hell, furfags]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pt4gorDJcXA "Seize the Fat One!"]]
* MoralEventHorizon: While Prince John is mostly LaughablyEvil, when [[spoiler: he decides to hang Friar Tuck to lure Robin out]], [[EvenEvilHasStandards even Sir Hiss is shocked.]]
** Given that the Church was an independent political entity that ''would'' object to this simply for the affront of a noble executing a priest on his own authority rather than attempting to have him punished via church law, there are reasons other than morality to be shocked by such an order.
** [[FridgeBrilliance Interesting historical context]]: John and Richard's father, Henry II, ordered the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas à Becket, assassinated. Certainly not an excuse, but can possibly be a reason why Prince John would even consider it.
* NarmCharm: Friar Tuck's sudden outburst of "GET OUTTA MY CHURCH!" is {{Narm}} for some. For others, it's a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment Of Awesome]].
* 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.
* NoEndorHolocaust[=/=]ValuesDissonance: Prince John and Sir Hiss have a good laugh over how Hiss hypnotized King Richard into going on the Crusades. Since this is Disney, this hopefully ''doesn't'' mean that Sir Hiss is responsible for the deaths of thousands of Jews and Muslims. The way they describe the Crusades as "crazy", the implication is that that they were brushed off as a SnipeHunt of sorts in that universe. Little John, in the "Phoney King of England" song, describes TheCrusades as "great" and calls King Richard "bonny" and "good" for going on them. Probably the most UnfortunateImplications-tastic moment in a Disney film. It is possible, however, that the peasantry and other commoners were given the ThemeParkVersion by those in power, told that TheCrusades were a good thing, and so Little John wouldn't know any better. Alternatively, his word choice could have been intended as SarcasmMode which would be lost in song. As for Richard being hypnotized into the Crusade in the first place, this is sadly likely to be another example of HistoricalHeroUpgrade--particularly since it disavows Richard entirely of any wrongdoing in his actions. Or again, [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation alternatively]], the film-writers might actually have approved of TheCrusades, and Hiss was taking credit for getting rid of Richard when he hadn't as he would know that [[EvilCannotComprehendGood John could not comprehend]] Richard's idealistic motives.
** Another interpretation is that Hiss is merely responsible for Richard going off to lead the Crusades personally, instead of sending troops and staying home to govern his kingdom.
* OlderThanTheyThink: There are two lion brothers. One's the king, and his brother, resentful of him, manages to get him out of the throne, so he can claim it himself. After he does, things go downhill, making everyone hate him. [[Disney/TheLionKing Sound familiar]]? Amusingly, this may be more coincidence (or a result of historical, literary, and iconographical references) than a deliberate echo--''Robin Hood'' is based on English history, ''Lion King'' on ''Hamlet'' which is an English play, and England (particularly its kings) has long been associated with lions, both in symbolism and heraldry.
* SoOkayItsAverage: The critics' reaction to the film at the time it premiered.
* {{Squick}}: Alan-a-Dale can bend his knees in ''both directions!'''
** Boy, if the Sheriff had won the archery tournament....
* {{Tearjerker}}: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRi0qfeeRdk Not in Nottingham]]" is ''hardcore'' for a song from a Disney movie.
** "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.

!!YMMV for the [[Series/RobinHood 2006 BBC version]] of ''Robin Hood'':

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Guy of Gisborne's perceived characterization can range from anything between misunderstood [[TheWoobie woobie]] to sadistic killer.
** This even happens within the show itself to some degree. After three seasons of snapping from one characterisation to the other like a light-switch most of the fandom just shrugged and picked whatever interpretation they liked best.
* AngstDissonance: Throughout season one Robin is haunted by his memories of war in the Holy Land, struggling with nightmares, post-traumatic stress, and survivor's guilt. At the end of season two his beloved Marian is stabbed through the stomach and dies in his arms, something that is only intermittently referred to in series 3, even though she dies in the ''Holy Land'', the source of his entire first-season angst.
* AngstWhatAngst: After [[spoiler: Marian's murder]] Robin goes on a vengeance-fuelled rampage. Then...he gets over it. He's back to his cheerful old self by the next episode, in which he meets his new LoveInterest.
** As it turns out, he's ''always'' been this way. In the WholeEpisodeFlashback, he's shown as a child, smiling and laughing amidst a group of cheering peasants...approximately five minutes after [[spoiler: his father's [[NotQuiteDead apparent]] death]]
* AnticlimaxBoss: Although Prince John was played by Toby Stephens, which automatically makes his entire performance a CrowningMomentOfFunny, it was also true that John was less menacing than the Sheriff of Nottingham and just as easily bested by the outlaws. Foppish and cowardly, Prince John is eventually run out of Nottingham with his tail between his legs.
* AssPull: Where Tuck gets the explosive needed to [[spoiler: destroy Nottingham castle]] from in ''Something Worth Fighting For'' is seen as this, although there ''was'' some attempt to explain it in-story.
** The canopies (sun-visors?) on the parapets of Nottingham Castle that never existed until Robin needed one to use as a hang-glider.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Kate invents CPR. Robin invents hang-gliding.
** Maybe he learned it from [[CaveDwellers Ator]].
* CargoShip: In season 1, the Sheriff asks Guy if he's jealous of Marian's horse. The two men are watching her from a window as she grooms it.
* 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.
** The writers seemed to think that if enough outlaws fell madly in love with Kate (who at various points call her: "a treasure," "a good fighter," "amazing", and "brave, compassionate and beautiful"), the audience would too. They didn't.
*** And "perfect." Don't forget the perfect, spoken ''before'' Kate joined the band (and only in the second episode with her in it!) Oh, Much.
**** She even gets to shill herself a couple of times, telling John that "I'm not some stupid girl," and Much that "I can take care of myself." Both statements are patently untrue.
**** The [[AudioAdaptation audio books]] also go nuts with the Kate shilling. ''The Dambusters'' opens with the following declaration: “Kate, what a wonderful companion, fighter, friend, wit, beauty.” You'd be excused for thinking that the narrator was being sarcastic.
* 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.
* DamselScrappy: Kate. Kate. A hundred times Kate!
* DieForOurShip: Whether Marian was better off with Guy or with Robin is a debate that still rages in forums to this day, despite the fact that [[spoiler:all three characters are now dead]].
** There was also some squabbling over the Will/Djaq/Allan LoveTriangle, and who was the best partner (if any) for Kate.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Guest-star Carter, a crusader looking for vengeance...then redemption ([[spoiler:which unfortunately came in the form of RedemptionEqualsDeath]]).
** Also Meg. Also [[spoiler:killed]].
** Will and Djaq. Managed to survive the carnage by being PutOnABus.
*** In fact, many - if not most - of the one-shot guest stars ended up being more popular than many of the main characters, including Matilda, the German Count, Meg, Carter, Queen Eleanor, the Fool, Benjamin Palmer, Davina, Eve, and Sir Jasper.
* EvilIsSexy: Guy of Gisborne and [[spoiler: Isabella]].
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In an early first season episode, reluctant hero Allan-a-Dale asks: "What is the point of all of us dying?" as a way of getting out of a rescue mission. In season three [[spoiler:he dies the [[DroppedABridgeOnHim most pointless, meaningless death imaginable]].]]
** Foz Allen and Dominic Minghella are on record for stating that Friar Tuck was omitted in seasons one and two because they "didn't want a comic relief character". When Tuck is finally introduced, he ends up being utterly humorless.
* 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.
* HesJustHiding: There were quite a few "Marian's not dead" theories floated following the series 2 finale.
* HilariousInHindsight: Anyone who has seen ''TheVicarOfDibley'' will know that this is ''not'' the first time Creator/RichardArmitage has been punched in the face at the altar on his wedding day.
** The audiobook ''The Siege'' has one of these, when Robin gets drunk. [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/lancashire/8691796.stm Consider what happened to Jonas Armstrong a year later.]]
* HoYay: Much, much? Plus the Sheriff and Guy to [[spoiler: a considerable]] extent.
** And [[spoiler:Guy and Allan]] in series 2.
** Prince John.
** Robin and Guy, combining the trope with FoeYay, as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyfwPa9rO5Q this]] proves.
* ItWasHisSled: [[spoiler: Gisborne kills Marian]]
* JerkSue: Kate. She also had the usual PuritySue traits, and was even something of an AntiSue. In her first few episodes, the writers seemed aware that they’d given her an abrasive, reckless personality (leading to Allan calling her “ungrateful” and Tuck reprimanding her on at least one occasion); however, as the show went on the outlaws began to adultate her despite there being no visible improvement in her haughty attitude.
** On the odd occasion, Robin himself can easily become one of these, although he is for the most part a lot more likable and sympathetic than Kate. The first episode of season 3 is one such example. He's vengeful, arrogant and treats his remaining team mates like dirt. Physically assaulting them and telling them that they're wastes of carbon. Even after this display of jerkassery Much gets himself arrested for trying to fight Guy in Robin's honour. Brother Tuck arrives in England just to remind Robin of how super special, awesome and important he is and he even risks Alan, Much and John's lives just to get Robin back to his old self. When all is said and done, they hold no ill will towards Robin for any of it and just accept his rather minuscule apology.
* JumpTheShark: According to creators Foz Allen and Dominic Mingella the decision to kill off [[spoiler:Marian]] was in order to "open up new storytelling possibilities". It didn't seem to occur to either of them that it's somewhat difficult to tell stories about a dead person, especially one so central to the plot they'd been building for the past two seasons.
* MagnificentBastard: The Sheriff and Prince John.
** Isabella certainly qualifies as a [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent Bitch]]. In only five episodes as the Sheriff of Nottingham, she manages to achieve more than the old Sheriff did in two and a half seasons, and is the individual directly responsible for the deaths of [[spoiler:Allan, Robin, Guy and Thornton]].
* MemeticMutation: Has magnified a lot of Kate's negative traits.
** Particularly the forehead braid (which she only had for three episodes) and the "e keeled mah bruvvah!" line (which she only said a couple of times).
* MisaimedFandom: [[FanDumb A large portion]] (though not all) of the Guy/Marian shippers. Despite capitalizing on the actors' chemistry with some ShipTease between Guy and Marian, the writers were very careful to ensure that Robin and Marian had a respectful and reciprocal relationship, whilst Guy's and Marian's was riddled with [[ArsonMurderAndJayWalking violence, threats, blackmail, intimidation, betrayals and hurt feelings]]. However, there is still a portion of the fandom that argue that Marian should have ended up with Guy, an opinion that can be divided into two distinct arguments: those that believe Guy was an accurate portrayal of a socially-awkward 12th century knight, who was therefore justified in everything he did regarding Marian (a view that [[JustIgnoreIt requires steadfast denial]] of the show's AnachronismStew), and those that paint him as a DracoInLeatherPants, who acted the way he did thanks to his FreudianExcuse, [[RonTheDeathEater with Marian regarded as an ungrateful bitch for not appreciating him.]]
** 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.
*** As for the show itself, it turned out that what the writers were ''actually'' trying to do was [[{{deconstruction}} deconstruct]] the notion that the love of a good woman can redeem a CuteButTroubled [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Bad Boy]]. When Marian finally refuses to play along with Guy's demands and tells him that she's in love with Robin Hood, he [[spoiler:stabs her to death]], effectively [[ShipSinking sending the Guy/Marian ship to the bottom of the bright blue sea]].
* {{Narm}}: Oh. So. Much. Actually, much of the Narm in the first two seasons (which were rather tongue-in-cheek) would probably be considered NarmCharm, but after the intense MoodWhiplash of the S2 finale in which [[spoiler:Marian is brutally impaled on a sword]], the fact that many subsequent episodes ''still'' include ridiculous scenarios results in a veritable onslaught of [[{{Narm}} Narmtastic scenes.]]
** Special mention must go to Guy's "secret weapon" that he plans to use to kill Robin Hood. He's carting around a sinister-looking box, as Prince John's elite team of soldiers surround the outlaws. The box opens...[[spoiler:and out comes the oldest, tiniest, mangiest, most worn-out lion you've ever seen in your life. The outlaws react with terror as the decrepit beast ''waddles'' toward them at a snail's pace, looking like it just wants to find a quiet place to lie down and die.]]
** Robin hang-gliding from the castle parapets. It's played for laughs, but it [[http://www.robinhood2006.com/gallerys3/Series3/episode2/slides/S3E21100.html still destroys brain-cells.]]
** Whenever [[http://www.robinhood2006.com/gallerys3/Series3/episode13/slides/S3E131146.html Kate]] has an [[http://www.robinhood2006.com/gallerys3/Series3/episode12/slides/S3E12845.html emotional scene]], [[http://www.robinhood2006.com/gallerys3/Series3/episode3/slides/RHS3E31149.html especially]] if she has the [[http://www.robinhood2006.com/gallerys3/Series3/episode2/slides/S3E2842.html forehead braid]] on [[http://www.robinhood2006.com/gallerys3/Series3/episode2/slides/S3E2481.html at the time]].
* NightmareRetardant: The lion. Seriously, if the outlaws had wanted to kill it, all they would've had to do was kick it over. Gently.
* OlderThanTheyThink: The idea of Gisborne murdering Marian was one of the ideas for the cancelled fourth series of ''RobinOfSherwood''.
** ''RobinOfSherwood'' also had Guy and Robin (actually [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute the second one]]) as half-brothers. And the idea of Middle Eastern outlaw started with that show.
** This Marian likes to dress up in disguise and go gallivanting around the countryside; in one of the very earliest [[http://www.lib.rochester.edu/camelot/teams/maid.htm ballads]] that featured Marian, she dresses up in disguise and fights Robin to a stand-still in Sherwood Forest.
* OneSceneWonder: Or rather, one episode wonder; [[MeaningfulName Legrande]].
* 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 MarySue, 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]]. She was not a very popular character.
* RelationshipSue: Meg, though done surprisingly well.
* 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.
* RonTheDeathEater: What usually happens to Robin in Guy/Marian fan-fic. Amusingly enough, by making Robin a jealous, self-centered, possessive, egotistical, violent man in order to consolidate Guy/Marian, [[CompletelyMissingThePoint Robin ends up being indistinguishable from canon!Guy.]]
* RootingForTheEmpire
* 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??
* ShockingSwerve: The end of season two, wherein [[spoiler:Marian]] is killed off. It didn't go down ''quite'' as well as Foz Allen and Dominic Minghella had hoped...
* SoBadItsGood: To some viewers. According to ''[[Series.DeadRingers Dead Ringers]]'':
--> ''"And now on BBC One with a brand new series of Robin Hood; where we've taken a much-loved classic tale, given it a pithy 20th century makeover, and made it shit."''
* SpecialEffectFailure: The lion (although to be absolutely fair, the director does try his best to work around the fact that it's the most harmless, half-dead specimen imaginable).
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Though some of the new characters are introduced late, or only stay for a few episodes, season three is dominated by Isabella, Kate, Prince John, Tuck and Archer, leading to the marginalization of the original outlaws. Even Robin and Guy were short-changed to some extent as a result of [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters the character overload]].
* StrangledByTheRedString: Will and Djaq's relationship is given subtle foreshadowing throughout season two, leading to a declaration of love that was considered too sudden, too [[{{Narm}} corny]] and completely out of character for both of them in what is widely known as the [[FanNickname Barn Scene of Ick]] .
** Robin and Isabella's first meeting is accompanied by a musical cue that's about as subtle as an anvil drop, and the episode concludes in a {{Narm}}tastic scene in which Robin confronts her about the fact that she's Gisborne's sister. He grabs her by the face, pushes her back into a tree, and acts so betrayed and angry that looks as though he's angsting over a woman he's been dating for three months instead of someone he's known for approximately five minutes.
*** Much's immediate and inexplicable infatuation with Kate.
* {{Tearjerker}}: [[spoiler:Gisborne's death saving Robin and by extension all the townspeople, where he finally admits that Marian was 'always Robin's']], and then [[spoiler:Robin's death and his final farewells to the gang... well John and Much at least... a few minutes later.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECkDXoeuK0Q&feature=related This.]] You don't need to have seen a single second of this show to get choked up at the [[TogetherInDeath long-awaited reunion]] of the two legendary lovers.
** [[spoiler:Allan's death, a heartbreaking and tragic end where he dies trying to be a hero but failing.]]
** Allan's reaction to his brother's death. Despite the fact that Tom has given him nothing but trouble, it is made obvious that he still cared and was devastated by his death.
* TheWoobie: Guy sometimes, Djaq often, Much always.
* TooCoolToLive: [[spoiler:Meg]].
** Also, [[BadAss Legrande]].
* TrappedByMountainLions: For two episodes in season three Guy of Gisborne was entirely absent due to Richard Armitage's commitments with ''{{Spooks}}''. The StoryArc couldn't proceed without him, which led to the writers marking off time with two negligible episodes in his absence, first in which the outlaws try to rescue a copy of [[McGuffin the Bible]] translated into English, and then in rescuing Kate multiple times from an evil tax collector. Excepting the contrivance of Kate joining the outlaws and some minor background for Tuck, neither episode adds anything to the arc of the season and can easily be skipped.
** Kate's entire presence is one very long TrappedByMountainLions arc. Her scenes could be exorcised completely from season 3 with absolutely no impact made on the overarching storyline. Her frequent kidnappings are padding, her love story with Robin is pointless, and the odd occasion in which she ''is'' allowed to be mildly useful involves her doing things that could have just as easily been achieved by another outlaw (like finding a MacGuffin or causing a distraction). There is nothing involving Kate herself (that is, something that ''only'' her character could have done) that in any way shapes the course of the season's StoryArc.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Djaq. Oh my God, '''Djaq'''.
* UnintentionallySympathetic: Isabella is clearly meant to be entirely unsympathetic by the end of the show's run, thereby justifying Robin and Guy's (successful) attempt to kill her. In that case, it probably ''wasn't'' such a good idea to have her backstory consist of Guy selling her into an abusive marriage to a sadistic rapist at the age of thirteen, or to have Robin constantly flip-flopping in regards to his attitude and behaviour toward her. Even her ordering the execution of Meg, which is meant to be her MoralEventHorizon, is somewhat understandable, considering that she frees Meg from an arranged marriage only to catch her releasing a prisoner that has already made at least two attempts on Isabella's life. Likewise, the fact that she is one of the few characters on the show to avoid carrying the IdiotBall earned her extra points, and when she's insane she manages to be more competent than any one around her.
* UnnecessaryMakeover: Most viewers prefered Djaq's androgynous S1 appearance than her more feminized look in S2 (especially since it included what became known as the [[FanNickname outer-bra]]).
* ViewersInMourning: The backlash for [[spoiler:Marian and Allan's]] deaths were ''not pretty'', and the writer/co-creator responsible for the former's death left the show under rather murky circumstances once the episode had aired. There was less outcry for [[spoiler:Robin and Guy]] considering their fates were sealed by the season two finale and were seen coming a mile away.


!! YMMV for appearances in other works.
* A French-accented parody of the character provides a BigLippedAlligatorMoment in ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' (2001).
