* 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. 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.

* InfinityPlusOneSword: Every game in the ''Sands of Time trilogy'' has one late in the game. Unusually for this trope, they are rather easy to obtain. In ''[[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheSandsOfTime Sands of Time]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheTwoThrones The Two Thrones]]'' [[SwordOfPlotAdvancement as part of the storyline]] and in ''[[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaWarriorWithin Warrior Within]]'' hidden behind a wall right next to the main path.

* PermanentlyMissableContent: All Sands ot Time trilogy games contain missable life upgrades; however, you're only penalized with a different kind of ending in ''Warrior Within'' for missing any. The upgrades have no bearing on the plot of the preceding ''[[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheSandsOfTime Sands of Time]]'', nor in the following ''[[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheTwoThrones The Two Thrones]]''. This last game also packs missable Sand Credits. Miss enough and you won't be able to pay for all the unlockable artwork. Not a big deal, unless you're after HundredPercentCompletion.

* HeroicAmbidexterity: In the ''[[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheSandsOfTime Sands of Time]]'' continuity, while he wasn't initially, by the time the prince came to the [[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaWarriorWithin Island of Time]] he was able to use both hands alike, to the point of wielding the dagger in his right hand and [[OneHandedZweihander two-hand sword]] in his left in the climax of the ''[[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheTwoThrones Two Thrones]]''.

* 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'').
