* TheOtherDarrin: ** In ''The Sands of Time'', the Prince is voiced by YuriLowenthal. In ''Warrior Within'', he's voiced by RobinAtkinDownes. In ''The Two Thrones'', he's again voiced by Lowenthal, with Canadian actor Rick Miller providing his inner "Dark Prince" voice. There was talk during development that Downes would voice the Dark Prince, but ultimately that didn't come to pass. Also in his brief {{Foreshadowing}} appearance in the second game the Dark Prince is played by Michael Rudder. ** Played straight with Kaileena (modeled after Creator/MonicaBellucci and voiced by both her and sound-alike actress Alicyn Packard in ''Warrior Within'' and Sarah Carlsen in ''The Two Thrones'') and Farah (Joanna Wasick in ''The Sands of Time'' and Hellen King in ''The Two Thrones'').

* EvilChancellor: The Vizier. He's even [[GrandVizierJafar named Jaffar]], though the movie Vizier is named Nizam instead.

* TwoPartTrilogy: The original games were slated to be this. The first game was a self-contained story that wasn't initially meant to be anything bigger. A sequel was made, however, and it ended on a CliffHanger. This was ultimately subverted, since the planned third game never happened, and the eventual sequel, ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia3D'', was completely unrelated.

The first game is a standalone while the second ends with a cliffhanger leading directly to the third. However, Farah and the Vizir from the first game come back.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: The series and the movie adaptation get a lot of flack for making the Prince [[MightyWhitey "too white"]], due to Western audiences expecting [[PhenotypeStereotype everyone who lives in the Middle East]] to [[UnfortunateImplications be brown as can be and not even vaguely similar to the rest of the world]]. In truth, the Persian people were close relatives of the Europeans, and the majority of modern Iran's population could be considered "white". And most people there identify as white. [[http://images.icanhascheezburger.com/completestore/2008/12/4/128728998449020593.jpg Compare Iranian prime minister Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Jake Gyllenhaal.]] Also, [[http://kotaku.com/5547892/is-prince-of-persia-really-a-racial-whitewash read Kotaku's article.]] Even better, compare him to former deputy culture minister [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_5aumgLlZ7iE/S5IbljYk34I/AAAAAAAABA8/DVyoARfvAP4/s1600-h/mohammad+ali+ramin.jpg Mohammad Ali Ramin]], who has a very light complexion.

* BenevolentArchitecture: An uncanny amount of the scenery is implausibly handy for jumping/climbing/hanging/swinging/[[LeParkour free-running]] around on. Which is lucky, since there's a distinct imbalance in the ratios of really-high-places to staircases/ladders/jetpacks, smooth stable floors vs. [[SpikesOfDoom fatal]] [[BottomlessPit drops]], etc.

* MalevolentArchitecture: Horrible splatty demises are freely available in most localities even without you encountering any enemies. Try [[SpikesOfDoom spike pits]], buzzsaws, sets of scimitars on revolving axles, [[TemporaryPlatform collapsing floors]], bladed pendulums, and [[GravityBarrier enormous drops]] -- many of which may be found combined as {{death course}}s. Fortunately often overlaps with BenevolentArchitecture, or else you'd never get anywhere.
