** Yes, the real Spartans had armor; what's that worthwhile adding to an article about 300?
** Played straight with Persian troops. They wear light armor that serves them well where they come from but utterly useless against wall of phalanx and spears in real life, although here is 300 half naked men with shields and mostly sword, some spears.

* BadassBoast: There is a reason the term "laconic wit" was named for the Spartans. They had a deep cultural love for pithy, badass statements.

* BadassBoast: There is a reason the term "laconic wit" was named for the Spartans. They had a deep cultural love for pithy, badass statements. And the movie is chock-full of them.

** Note that the real life Spartan kings did in fact have a bodyguard of 300 men called the Hippeis. They were however the opposite of the men Leonidas took with him to Thermopylae: young men under 30 mounted on horses.

** The Spartans were far from a rural, freedom-loving society they portrayed as. In reality, they were a minority who lived by continually and ruthlessly repressing the majority of the population, the helots. The latter were essentially slaves who worked the land to produce the food so that the former could spend all their time fighting wars and oppressing them. During some periods, a Spartan had the right to murder helots with impunity.
