* CurbStompBattle: The battle of Hattin pitts the entire army of Jerusalem against the Saracen forces which number in the 200,000 range. The Christian troops are force-marched by Guy de Lusignan in the scorching desert away from water for several days to fight the Saracens. Saladin's army rolls right over them with barely any losses while on their way to retake Jerusalem.

** The portrayal of Guy and Reynauld as Knights Templar is completely fictional, and would have been an impossibility within the bounds of the contemporary laws. Not only did the Templars renounce all their personal titles outside the Order, which made their portrayal as elitist nobility a suspect, but they could hold no land or possessions in their own name, which would have made it impossible for Guy to be crowned as King.

* SacrificialLion: Godfrey and his band of crusaders. They nearly all die to his nephew's goons in order to establish that this an age in history where [[AnyoneCanDie life is cheap]] and the world is ruled mostly by men who are corrupt and will will gleefully kill their own brothers for power.

* ArmyOfThievesAndWhores: The Templars are portrayed this way, being corrupt, immoral, bloodthirsty and power-hungry. They genuinely believe their [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections high-borne status gives them the right to do as they please]], while behaving like a despicable horde of barbarians. It makes sense that the crusade would breed these [[HumansAreBastards human monsters]] when the Pope is stated to be offering a morality-car-wash for Christian sinners in exchange for killing Saracens.

Added DiffLines:

* TheResenter: Balian's brother and priest at the beginning of the film. He resents the fact that Balian is not only well-liked by the local Bishop, but is also noble and kind-hearted while the brother is a selfish simpering toadie. He steals money meant for Balian, condemns his late wife to hell and steals her crucifix, and tries to get Balian to leave the town to go on the crusade so that he can finally be rid of him, but is stabbed and burned to death for his cruelty instead.
