* DeadpanSnarker: Julius II has his moments. For example, after reading a TakeThat sonnet that Michelangelo wrote early on in the film:

Added DiffLines:

* TheDeterminator: Michelangelo and Julius II are both this, even when they need a little encouragement.


Added DiffLines:

* CelibateHero: Michelangelo's love is not women, but art, as Contessa D'Amici learns by the end of the film. Legend has it this was done as an alternative to examining Michelangelo's alleged homosexuality.

** {{Jossed}} by Heston, who refused to allow scenes from the movie to be shown in the documentary ''Film/TheCelluloidCloset'' because he believed Michelangelo was straight and played him as such. Then again, if the screenwriter felt otherwise, it wouldn't be the [[Film/BenHur first time]] Heston played a gay character [[EnforcedMethodActing without realizing it]].
