* ActorAllusion: [[Film/HistoryOfTheWorldPartI "It's good to be the king!"]]
** Dick Van Patten (apart from being part of Mel Brooks' ProductionPosse) was likely cast as the Abbot as a ShoutOut to his role as Friar Tuck in ''When Things Were Rotten'', Mel's first Robin Hood parody.
* FakeBrit: Averted, because unlike [[Creator/KevinCostner some other Robin Hoods]], this one ''[[LampshadeHanging can]]'' [[LampshadeHanging speak with an English accent.]]
** Amy Yasbeck, Mark Blankfield, Eric Allan Kramer, and Matthew Porretta, however, play this trope straight; Creator/DaveChappelle and Richard Lewis [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent don't even bother with the accent.]]
* HeAlsoDid: Co-writer J. David Shapiro later did the screenplay for ''Film/BattlefieldEARTH''.
* NamesTheSame:
-->'''Random voice:''' Heeeey Abboooooot!
-->'''Abbot:''' I hate that guy!
* ProductionPosse: Dick Van Patten and Dom De Luise return.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Creator/DaveChappelle, in his first role.
* ThrowItIn: The part where Ahchoo pumps up his sneakers during a fight came about because Dave Chappelle happened to be wearing the shoes on set along with his costume. At first, Mel Brooks pointed out that they were '''somewhat''' anachronistic, but decided to make a joke about it.
* TropeNamer:
** BadNewsInAGoodWay
** JustYouAndMeAndMyGUARDS
* VindicatedByCable: A lot like with Film/{{Spaceballs}}, this movie found a bigger audience in home video.
* WhatMightHaveBeen: ProfessionalWrestling/HulkHogan was offered the role of Little John.
