* ActorAllusion:
** [[Film/HistoryOfTheWorldPartI "It's good to be the king!"]]
** Dick Van Patten (apart from being part of Creator/MelBrooks' 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.
* BigNameFan: {{Nerdcore}} rapper Music/DanBull cited this movie's GreekChorus of rapping merry men as not only his introduction to comedy rap but to the genre of rap in general.
* 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]], but [[RuleOfFunny that's the joke]].
* HeAlsoDid: Co-writer J. David Shapiro later did the screenplay for ''Film/BattlefieldEARTH''.
* MissingTrailerScene: In the trailer, Robin shoots an arrow that flies around tree, brakes, swerves, and eventually completely misses target on a tree, splitting the tree in half. This doesn't happen in the film.
* NamesTheSame:
-->'''Random voice:''' Heeeey Abboooooot!
-->'''Abbot:''' I hate that guy!
* NonSingingVoice: None of the actors actually sang their own parts. All of the singing was done by professional singers. Debbie James and Arthur Rubin did the singing for Amy Yasbeck and Creator/CaryElwes.
* ProductionPosse: Dick Van Patten and Creator/DomDeLuise return.
* RetroactiveRecognition:
** Creator/DaveChappelle appears in his first role.
** Fans of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' will recognize the Young Lad as Tee from ''Film/QuestOfTheDeltaKnights''.
* ThrowItIn:
** The part where Ahchoo pumps up his sneakers during a fight came about because Creator/DaveChappelle happened to be wearing the shoes on set along with his costume. At first, Creator/MelBrooks pointed out that they were '''somewhat''' anachronistic, but decided to make a joke about it.
** The scene where the Sheriff falls through the roof of Latrine and she tries to get him to have sex with her was completely improvised by Roger Rees and Tracey Ullman.
* 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.
** Creator/SeanConnery thought it would be funny if he reprised his King Richard role from ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'', but in drag. Creator/MelBrooks found it funny too, but turned him down due to his salary.
