Background

Filthy Luca is a mob hitman from Jersey in the Channel Islands. He has numerous archery medals.

During the events of Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993) played by Steve Tancora

The Sheriff of Rottingham has a meeting with Don Giovanni, Filthy Luca and Dirty Ezio. The Sheriff and Don Giovanni discuss killing Robin Hood. Don Giovanni comes up with a plan to assassinate Robin during an archery tournament. At the Annual Spring Fair, the Royal Announcer yells that the archery contest is about to begin. Robin, who is disguised as an old man, makes it past the first round and in the next round faces Filthy Luca for the win. Robin hits a bullseye, but Filthy Luca splits Robin's arrow with his own. Robin, who is in shock that he lost, reads the script and figures out he gets another shot. Robin then fires a Patriot Arrow that automatically flies towards the target and hits the target from the backside.
