* HeyItsThatGuy: Ulric is [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Boromir]] and [[Film/GoldenEye Janus]], and [[Series/GameOfThrones Ned Stark]].
** [[Series/GameOfThrones Melisandre]] is a VainSorceress, [[SarcasmMode who'd have thought it?]]
** The village is led by [[{{Blackadder}} Percy, aka Captain Darling]].
* TitleDrop: An aversion. Though the movie is set during the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Black Death]], it is never named as such in any dialogue, usually referred to instead as "the pestilence." This is true to history, as the plague was not given its popular name until much later.
* XMeetsY: This film basically is ''Film/TheWickerMan'' if it was put into ''Literature/TheNameOfTheRose''.
