*** Both the book and the film are often used in ''academic circles'' as a rare case when there is a Muslim character in Western work that does not fall under [[InscrutableOriental Inscrutable Arab]], TheFundamentalist or any other stereotype, instead being portrayed as a noble, well-educated person coming from a more advanced and sophisticated culture.



* The twelve Norsemen volunteering for the quest illustrates JumpedAtTheCall nicely, with the heroic theme swelling.

* The ritualised duel between Herger and Angus. Herger is constantly badly beaten by his much stronger and bigger opponent, first trying to play it for laughs, but quickly realising he's outmatched, being out of breath and spare shields to protect himself in no time. [[spoiler: And then, when he's about to be killed, he effortlessly dodges the deadly blow and in the same move makes a swift slash, beheading Angus and splashing blood on the gathered crowd, including the prince. After which Herger ''casually walks away without looking back'', while the beheaded body falls limp on the ground]]. Cheesy? Sure. Awesome? You bet it.

* Buliwyf's introduction. When Ahmed arrives at his camp, the king (Buliwyf's father) has just passed away and his funeral feast is being held. Ahmed begins introducing himself, when suddenly Buliwyf is attacked by one of the other heirs to the crown. Buliwyf skillfully blocks the attack, and counters with a mighty swing of his own sword that kills his assailant. Buliwyf then calmly sits back down as though nothing happened.

** Ahmed's prayer before this is also great. An American film with a Muslim protagonist that treats the lead's faith with respect. Nice.
