* HowToStopTheDeusExMachina: The time-rewinding dagger only works with the Sands of Time, and getting it is very difficult, requiring going underground in the city of Alamut.

* AllIsWellThatEndsWell: So, he and his army invaded a city on false pretenses, killing, presumably, at least hundreds, if not thousands. That part wasn't undone. What of the dead? What of their families?

** Many of Dastan's outfits bear resemblence to the Prince's outfits throughout the games. During the fight between Dastan and a soldier, his appearance mirrors that of the Prince's appearance at both the end of ''Sands of Time'' (before turning back time) and his whole appearance throughout ''The Two Thrones''. During the takeover of Alamut, his appearance mirrors that of the Prince's appearance in ''Warrior Within''.

* NoOshaCompliance: The path leading to the Hourglass is said to immediately self-destruct [[TemptingFate if something touches the sand]] on either side of the path. Presumably [[spoiler:Nizam's]] digging destabilised the cavern, because otherwise it seems like a rather strange safety feature, considering just the door opening caused enough vibrations to cause stones to begin falling from the ceiling!

* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Aside from the obviousness of Dastan and his brothers all being great warriors and Dastan saving the world, Tamina is very much this trope--not only does she prove herself quite capable of manipulating, deceiving and outsmarting her 'ally', as well as handy in a fight, as the Guardian of the Dagger she is literally the only thing standing between humanity and TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, and quite willing to perform a HeroicSacrifice in order to fulfill her role.
