** Subverted during the final battle, in which he helps Trojan soldiers fight of the Greeks for a brief time. True, he did ultmately leave, but it was to rescue Briseis (and in the [[ReCut Director's Cut]], Glaucus urged him to do so).

* KickTheSonOfABitch: Menelaus beating Paris to a bloody pulp. Sure, Menelaus is hardly a saint himself, but considering the fact that Paris ''knowingly'' endangered himself and his people by fucking another man's wife, he certainly deserved some level of punishment.


Added DiffLines:

** Helen after the first day of battle. Sure, she had an ItsAllMyFault mentality from beginning to end, but after witnessing the funerals of the Trojans who died that day, she is so overcome with guilt that she decides to give herself up to the Greeks, despite knowing that Menelaus will undoubtedly kill her, in the hopes of stopping the carnage. Sadly, as Hector points out, doing so would accomplish nothing.


Added DiffLines:

*VillainousBreakdown: By the film's climax, Agamemnon has become completely unhinged, loudly shouting for his men to burn Troy to the ground. More so in the [[ReCut Director's Cut]], in which he slits a wounded soldier's throat, then says in a manic voice, [[KillEmAll "No one! Spare no one!"]] and viciously tells a dying Priam "No one's innocent."

** Arguably, lots of Greek soldiers who by the end RapePillageAndBurn Troy, and while their leader gets killed, majority of the military survives and arguably returns home.

** If you consider Ajax to be the villain, he could easily fit that as well. He can be one of those rare examples of when a character fits both the role of TheBigGuy and the brute.

* AdaptationalWimp: As usual with most modern interpretations, Agamemnon is portrayed here as a cowardly backstabbing armchair general who is sitting behind his troops in the midst of battle. The film even takes it a step further by showing that he caused the Greeks to lose the early engagements of the Trojan War with his arrogance (specifically in the first attempt to besiege Troy) and never portray him clashing in melee with the Trojans. He is even killed by Briseis at the very end when he threatens her at knife point during the sack of Troy. Where as in the original myths Agamemnon was a CLASS A {{Badass}} who could take on Trojan formations single-handed and even Achilles had to begrudgingly show respect to the Greek king's martial prowess after an engagement with the Trojans.
