* MadeOfIron: Compared to the first movie, Perseus takes ''a lot'' of punishment, and it shows on his body, yet it's still much more than a normal human would be able to take - [[JustifiedTrope he's a demigod after all]]. Agenor himself also displays demigod levels of MadeOfIron, considering He took a full-force blow from Ares' warhammer with Poseidon's trident not exactly providing the best shield in that situation. He was struck with enough force to knock him into a pillar, which exploded and collapsed upon impact. Despite this, he still managed to walk it off. Hades and Ares fall hundreds of feet and shake it off, especially Ares who is completely unharmed

* SuperStrength: In full force in this movie. Ares crumples his enemies like they were made out of clay, easily neck-lifting people and throwing them far away with one hand. Hell, being slapped by Ares looks like it hurts a lot. He even knocked Andromeda off her feet by [[BarehandedBladeBlock grabbing her sword]] and jabbing her with the hilt. He threw Hades trident over 50 feet to impale Zeus. He shoved Perseus through atleast three stone pillars casually, and then kicking Perseus hard enough to crack the stone tablets behind him. He can even generate minor shockwaves while hitting someone, presuming they are capable of surviving his blows, even generating shockwaves powerful enough to send people flying when using his warhammer. Zeus and Hades kick the crap out of the Makhai attacking the Unified Greek Army, pummeling these MadeOfIron {{Perpetual Motion Monster}}s with incredible feats of strength. Perseus is no slouch either, having used iron chains of questionable quality to ensnare the Chimera and restrain it long enough for it to kill itself, temporarily holding his own in a push-off against a 40 feet tall Cyclops who can easily rip apart and punch through trees and one hit kill ordinary humans, punching the super-strong Minotaur's horn off and beating him into unconsciousness with nothing but his bare fists and a tiny rock, smashing the chains holding Zeus into dust using a staff while Andromeda with a sword was able to do nothing, and he and Agenor together hold off a massive literal AdvancingWallOfDoom

* AdaptationalBadass: A minor case with Medusa, who got taken out ''while she was asleep'' in the myths. Here she fights back against her would-be attackers not only with the powers of a Gorgon, but also with a bow and arrows. The bows and arrows were also a cause of BrokenBase.

** This becomes FridgeLogic if one knows that Medusa received her curse ''because she was so very beautiful'' driving Poseidon to rape her in Athena's temple. Whether or not she was made so grotesque that her face turned men to stone - or retained her beauty but had her gaze cursed so that "no man could look upon her" is a matter of interpretation.

** This becomes FridgeLogic if one knows that
Medusa received is a complicated example. The first myths of her curse ''because state that she was so very beautiful'' driving Poseidon to rape her in Athena's temple. Whether or not she was made so grotesque that her face hideous, the sight turned men to stone - or stone. Other myths state that Medusa retained her mortal beauty but had her gaze cursed so as some kind of cruel irony, and that "no man could look upon her" the powers were in her eyes. A third set offer a compromise and state that Medusa was both beautiful and terrible at the same time. The third appears to be the school of thought this movie is a matter following. The Medusa of interpretation.the original film was a monstrous creature. Here she's played by a supermodel - but gets a GameFace when she uses her powers. She also provides the page image for GorgeousGorgon.



* TheArtifact: Andromeda. There is no real need for her to appear in the remake given she has [[DemotedToExtra lost her role as Perseus' love interest]] and her city has already done more than enough to anger the gods even without her mother's hubris in proclaiming her beauty. She only seems to have been retained at all because Perseus rescuing Andromeda is such a big part of the original story. Meanwhile, Io seems to have been added in as the [[PromotedToLoveInterest replacement love interest]].
** In an alternate ending featured on the DVD, he falls for her instead of Io... but see StrangledByTheRedString on the YMMV page to see all the problems with it.

* TheArtifact: Andromeda. There is no real need As Andromeda isn't Perseus's love interest any more, there's very little reason for her to appear - other than to be sacrificed to the Kraken. WordOfGod is that she was the love interest originally - but the studio preferred Io for that role instead. Likewise Calibos has very little reason to appear, as he's not Perseus's romantic rival - nor is Thetis an antagonist in the remake given she has [[DemotedToExtra lost her role as Perseus' love interest]] and her city has already done more than enough to anger the gods even without her mother's hubris in proclaiming her beauty. She only seems to have been retained at all because Perseus rescuing Andromeda is such a big part of the original story.

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Io always looks like she's just stepped off the set of a shampoo commercial even if everyone else is completely filthy from traveling across wilderness for several days. Not to mention, none of the male heroes get so much as a single change of clothes, while she throws on multiple outfits. Pulled out of {{Hammerspace}}, apparently, since they never say where it came from.
** Actually, she wears the same costume through the whole thing. Her hairstyle does change a couple times, she changes how she drapes her cloak, and she gets a fur trim for it after they stay with the Djinn, but her tunic and the cloak itself never change.
* BigDamnHeroes: How else would you describe Perseus riding in on a flying horse to kill the Kraken, simultaneously saving the girl and the day?

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Io always looks like considerably better groomed than the rest of the men, who are all grubby and sweaty after the fight with the scorpions. Granted she's just stepped off not involved in the set of a shampoo commercial even if everyone else is completely filthy from traveling across wilderness fighting as the others are, but she still looks very good for several days. Not to mention, none of someone travelling in the male heroes get so much as a single change of clothes, while she throws on multiple outfits.
