* AdrenalineTime: Used for actions sequences, most notably in the combat scene between Seso and the Hassansin knife thrower where time is slowed down to show the otherwise fast moving projectiles in flight.

* BadassLongcoat



* BattleCouple: Dastan and Tamina.



* HappilyAdopted: Dastan was adopted by the King and is loved as an equal by his brothers.



* ObviouslyEvil:
** Garsiv is a {{glory seeker}} who [[BloodKnight attacks the city head-on regardless of casualties]], wears [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience black armor]] and is the [[MaliciousSlander very first person to accuse]] Dastan of assassinating the king. [[spoiler:Subverted, since it turns out Garsiv was completely unaware of Nizam's scheming and saves Dastan's life once the truth is revealed to him.]]
** The Hassansins.
** Nizam has both BaldOfEvil and BeardOfEvil.



* QuirkyMinibossSquad: The Hassansins. There's a snake guy, a fire guy, a whip guy, a knife guy, an axe guy...



* UsedToBeASweetKid
** Nizam, saving his brother's life and all. Well, until he became [[TheResenter resentful]].
** Dastan, the boy that risked his life to save someone wrongly persecuted ends up leading the attack on an innocent nation, though doing so from misinformation and out of a concern to avoid, as much as possible, the horrendous death tolls that the original attack plan's full frontal assault would most likely incur going by RealLife historical record[[note]] there's a reason attacking walled cities tended towards long sieges to starve out the defenders, after all[[/note]].



* {{Warrior Prince}}: Dastan and his brothers are all accomplished warriors who lead their father's army in battle.

* CutTheSafetyRope: Dangling from great height, Tamina chooses to let go off Dastan so he can live and foil Nizam's plan. But then again, DeathIsCheap thanks to the Dagger of Time.



* DyingMomentOfAwesome: Seso bravely battles the evil Hassansin knife thrower in order to get the Dagger back, resulting in an epic knife fight. Seso kills his opponent, [[spoiler: only to look down and see that he had been struck in the chest by four knives. In his final moment, he grabs the Dagger and tosses it out the tower window, falling several stories and impaling itself in the wood right next to where Dastan, Tamina and Amar were waiting for it]].

* InertialImpalement: With his last breath mortally wounded Garsiv uses his spear to impale one of the Hassansins who was about to jump onto Dastan from above.



* LiteralCliffhanger: Dastan and Tamina are pushed off a cliff by Nizam but Dastan manages to hold to a ledge. But he cannot sustain himself and Tamina. Cue her HeroicSacrifice in form of CutTheSafetyRope.



* MortalWoundReveal: After killing the Hassansin knife thrower in combat, [[spoiler:Seso]] looks down on himself only to see that he had been struck in the chest by four knives. He dies soon after.



* 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!

* AllIsWellThatEndsWell: So, Dastan (and his brothers) and his army invaded a city on false pretenses, killing, presumably, at least hundreds, if not thousands. However, since Dastan travels back in time and successfully exposes the nefarious agenda that caused the invasion to begin with, he's able to settle things peacefully without any further blowback whatsoever.

* {{Brownface}}: Gemma Arterton, a fair-skinned Englishwoman, looks considerably tanner while playing the Persian princess Tamina. Of course, some Persians are as fair skinned as Northern Europeans, but a fair Gemma Arterton [[RealityIsUnrealistic would not be convincingly Persian to Western audiences]]. And she looks goddamn sexy with any color of skin.
