Factual errors 

Robin's bow was actually a longbow, not a recurved bow. A longbow is, of course, long (about as long as the person using it) and is virtually straight. Also, the legendary Robin never used the Saracen sword; the movement for a longsword is completely different, meaning he actually wouldn't have been able to.
