* HistoricalBeautyUpdate: Inverted. We don't know exactly what the real Ephialtes of Trachis looked like, but he almost certainly wasn't the deformed wretch he is in this movie.

** In the climatic Battle of Plataea, the Greeks really ''were'' outnumbered three-to-one, and still managed to decisively defeat the Persian army, with it being every bit the CurbStompBattle the film implies it to be.

** There were actually two Spartan survivors of the 300: Aristodemus, (upon who Dilios was partially based) and Pantites. The former had an eye infection, while the latter was on an embassy to Thessaly and did not return in time for battle. Both were disgraced upon their return to Sparta, (Aristodemus because a fellow Spartan had actually been sent back with him for the same reason but had insisted on being lead into battle by a Helot anyways) Pantites hanged himself, and Aristodemus was 'redeemed' at Plataea, where he died in battle.

** The real Ephialtes was neither a Spartan nor deformed, or anything more than a greedy opportunist who sold out his country.

* ActionFilmQuietDramaScene: The scene where [[spoiler: Dilios returns to Sparta as the SoleSurvivor of the 300 and gives Gorgo Leonidas' necklace]] is a short, somber scene that has no dialogue, but the two practically have an entire conversation.

* StayInTheKitchen: The Persian Ambassador hits Gorgo with this, which pisses Leonidas off right away. This is TruthInTelevision, given the relative standards of the time and locale, Sparta was practically a feminist enclave.
