* IsThatTheBestYouCanDo: Stelios (Creator/MichaelFassbender) [[Creator/MichaelFassbender Stelios]] shouts "IS THAT THE BEST YOU CAN DO?!" the trope name ''ad verbatim'' at the first wave of Persian footmen as they hopelessly try to break the Spartan phalanx.



* PunctuatedForEmphasis: The iconic [[MemeticMutation "This! IS! SPARTA!"]]is the former TropeNamer. Gerard Butler really went the LargeHam route with the role. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/f/ff/This.Is.Sparta_GN.to.film.jpg The comic]] did not have the emphasis, so this was something Butler added himself. He does the same for "Tonight! We dine! In hell!"

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The last task of Leonidas' agoge when he's a teen, which pits him against a huge wolf, which he traps and kills in a narrow cliff pass. It foreshadows the 300 Spartan warriors doing the same to Xerxes' gigantic army at the Thermopylae.

** 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.
