Added DiffLines:

* SteppingStoneSword: When guards hurl spears at Robin Hood when he's clinging to a wall, one embeds itself in the wrong, Robin using it to hoist himself up to the top.

Added DiffLines:

** Also happens with Robin and Little John as they make off with the goods from Prince John's coach. The collision spills all the money everywhere, and the duo rush to hurridely scrape it up again. The delay means that a suspicious Prince John, sticking his head out of the coach, catches them running off and [[LateToTheRealization realizes what's just happened]].
-->'''Prince John:''' Robbed! [[CaptainObvious I've been robbed!]]


* CatsAreMean: Played straight ''and'' inverted with [[BigBad Prince John and [[BigGood King Richard]] (who are both lions), respectively.

Added DiffLines:

* HighClassGlass: Little John wears a monocle as part of his disguise as Sir Reginald, Duke of Chutney. (Yet another piece of the film's AnachronismStew.)


* HighDiveEscape: Robin leaps from the roof of the burning catle into the moat.

Added DiffLines:

* HighDiveEscape: Robin leaps from the roof of the burning catle into the moat.

Added DiffLines:

* WantedPoster: There are wanted posters for Robin Hood plastered all over Nottingham. Maid Marain has one pinned up inside her wardrobe that she moons over like a poster of a rock star.

* CerebusSyndrome: The overall film is light-hearted and comedic... until the third act of the film where the Sheriff arrests the Nottingham villagers. Also, there are some violent moments particularly with Prince John such as planning to hang Friar Tuck by using him as bait to capture Robin Hood.

* ArcherArchetype: He's ''Robin Hood''; what do you expect?

* ArcherArchetype: He's ''Robin Hood''; what do you expect?expect? Although this version is warmer than the trope's standard.


** Since when has Disney stayed true to real life animal interbreeding? Remember this is a world of talking anthropomorphic animals, so why couldn't lions and foxes breed in this world?
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** Near the beginning, when Robin and Little John are doing their gypsy women disguise, Robin keeps Little John from running away by pushing him ''by his false breasts''.
** A male rhino guard is clearly ''checking out Little John's butt'' while he's in drag.
** Robin, disguised as a woman, makes off with Prince John's clothes, except his underwear. This is immediately after "she" spent a good deal of time feeding him compliments. Raising the idea of how she probably got him out of those clothes.
** After Robin Hood and Maid Marian are married, Skippy remarks, "Robin Hood's gonna have kids, somebody has to keep an eye on things." He may be an innocent child now...



** During the scene where Skippy sneaks into the castle to get his lost arrow, Lady Kluck quite clearly loses the shuttlecock down her bodice and spends several hilarious minutes dancing around, trying to get it out.
** In Tuck's jail cell, one can see the words "Forgive Them All" carved into the stonework. Keep in mind, Prince John is planning to execute him, a clergyman. [[DraggedOffToHell Prince John and his court are all going to hell, and Friar Tuck knows it]].



* GetTheeToANunnery: "A pox on you" (in this case, on the phony king of England) is a Shakespearean-era insult meaning, "I hope you get a disfiguring and potentially deadly disease, like smallpox or syphilis." It did also have a more general meaning along the lines of "To heck with you," so it might be a milder case of GettingCrapPastTheRadar.

Added DiffLines:

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Even though its whole purpose is to make fun of their boss, both Sir Hiss and the Sheriff take a liking to "[[TheVillainSucksSong The Phony King of England]]," and cheerfully sing it while on the job...and while Prince John is in earshot.

* The church sexton and his wife -- church mice.



-->'''Robin:''' "Rob"? (Tuts) That's a naughty word. We ''never'' rob! We just... sort of "borrow" a bit from those who can afford it.\\
'''John:''' "Borrow"? Heh. ''Boy'', are we in debt.

to:

-->'''Robin:''' -->'''Little John''': You know somethin', Robin. I was just wonderin', are we good guys or bad guys? You know, I mean, uh? Our robbin' the rich to feed the poor.\\

* ChurchOfSaintGenericus: Several scenes are set in churches or chapels, the Crusades form an important part of the back story, and a major character (Friar Tuck) is "a man of the Church." But beyond that, any specific trappings of religion are [[AmbiguouslyChristian pretty ambiguous]]. Then again, the characters are all [[PettingZooPeople animals]], so perhaps [[MST3KMantra it's best not to press the theological question too far]].

As for the mice, lesser functions like sexton (a caretaker or janitor) probably don't require a vow of celibacy, unlike the main clerical figures.
