* HopeBringer: Achilles is depicted this way throughout the movie, where the Greeks are sure they can win the war if they think he is on their side. Best shown when Patroclus disguised as Achilles rallies a counterattack against the Trojans, and the scene uses sweeping heroic music to convey that the tide of the battle is now turning in the favor of the Greeks.

** Having a force many times larger does nothing to help the Greeks when they have no way to get past the Trojan's walls. Were it not for Odysseus's idea to create the TrojanHorse, they would have never gotten into the city.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Paris, of course! The evil-hearted coward of the original mythology has now been replaced by a good-hearted coward.

Paris, of course! The evil-hearted coward of the original mythology has now been replaced by a good-hearted coward.



* AdaptationalVillainy: While not exactly a NiceGuy in the original poem, the film goes to great lengths to portray Agamemnon as little more than a pure evil, mustache twirling tyrant with no redeeming qualities beyond a genuine love for his brother Menelaus, who is not portrayed in the best light either. He wants to conquer Troy and annex it to his Kingdom and sees Helen's abduction as an ExcusePlot to mount an invasion. In the poem, Agamemnon never really expresses any true desire to conquer Troy, his plan is to defeat the army and avenge his brother's humiliation. Hence why he and the Achaeans sack the city and level it to the ground and [[RapePillageAndBurn kill, exile and enslave the population]] rather than establish a new government (as every conqueror would rationally do).

** Menelaus is subjected to this treatment too. In the original poem, Menelaus actually ended up forgiving Helen when he found her back. Arguably, he might even be one of the few characters to be in his right, as Paris kidnapped his wife and there were no indication that he was a bad husband before. The movie gives him a lot of flaws to justify Helen's decision to cheat on him and to be sure that the audience will side with her and against him: Turning him into a violent BloodKnight with a HairTriggerTemper.

* SacredHospitality: Menelaus is justified in his anger towards Troy since the Greeks have always praised the rights of guests and hosts in honor of Zeus. Paris violated it when he drank his wine, ate his food, embraced him in friendship and then had sex with Menelaus' wife Helen and made off with her as his own bride.

** Hector makes it a point after he first beat the Greeks in battle that they would be allowed to collect their dead. Agamemnon would probably not have extended the same to the Trojans.

* [[MyCountryRightOrWrong My Deity, Right or Wrong]]: In a major DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything moment, Achilles points out some of the severe moral inconsistencies of Greek religion to Briseis. [[AmbiguousSituation Intriguingly,]] while her response sounds devout on paper, Rose Byrne's reading of the line comes off more as long-suffering weariness, implying that Briseis is actually deeply bothered by this:
