*** This is even more brilliant since ''Forgotten Sands'', set between ''Sands of Time'' and ''Warrior Within'' has a combat system improved from the former, yet more casual and not quite as stylized as in the latter. At first this seems like a step backwards, but then you realise it makes perfect sense in the context.

* The Dahaka and the Dark Prince's weakness to water makes sense when one considers that they're made of sand. Water sticks to sand and makes it heavier, preventing it from having form when there's too much. Each time they come into contact with water, they are literally being washed away.

** Except everyone on the island is living... well, in some [[MadeofPhlebotinum twisted way]]. Unlike Sand creatures from ''SandsOfTime'', they actually have free will. Now how about the '''real''' horror - [[PoweredByAForsakenChild power source]] for Prince's medallion?

* In ''Warrior Within'', it's pretty obvious that the enemies are all made of sand, and the game doesn't really shy away from it. However, when you consider that both Shahdee and Kaileena turned into sand when they died, it makes you start to wonder... are you the only true living thing on the island?

* Throughout ''Sands of Time'' the player will step into pillars of the titular Sands to receive visions of the near future, essentially hints regarding upcoming rooms. About the midpoint, however, the visions become...odd, showing the Prince being injured by enemies, killed by traps, or (most pertinently) Farah at first acting suspiciously and then apparently betraying the Prince. Why is this? Farah's plan all along was to re-imprison the Sands in the Hourglass. The Sands, however, are happy where they are. So, the Sands intentionally misdirect the Prince (and player), showing visions of Farah that, while technically accurate, are edited in a way to drive a wedge between the two characters. [[spoiler:This is actually successful. Had the Prince done as Farah asked in the Tower of Dawn, the rest of the series would never have happened.]]

!From the game series



* In ''Warrior Within'', it's pretty obvious that the enemies are all made of sand, and the game doesn't really shy away from it. However, when you consider that both Shahdee and Kaileena turned into sand when they died, it makes you start to wonder... are you the only true living thing on the island?

!For the movie
%%For the love of GOD, can we leave the stuff about the one inconsequential mook that's used to handwave Nazim knowing about the sand glass off this page? The film's page has already been locked over it, and the JBM page for the whole bloody series has been locked and redlinked over it. Unless you're trying to get every single page with PrinceOfPersia in it locked, just leave it the goddamn hell alone.
!!FridgeBrilliance
* It's a small one, but one of the main themes in the movie is the importance of brothers and brotherhood. In the original PrinceOfPersia game, Jordan Mechner (who helped write the film) used photos of his own brother to create the Prince's sprite. Jordan's brother brought the Prince to life. Neat, huh?
** Related to the lack of [[OurZombiesAreDifferent sand zombies]]: If Dastan could extract their Sands of Time, he'd probably just [[GameBreaker abuse the Dagger of Time]] at every pivotal plot point. Perhaps that's why they weren't in the movie?
* [[spoiler:Nizam displayed surprisingly competent swordwork immediately following his VillainousBreakdown, the reason he was such a pushover during the film's climax was because his hands had been burnt in that timeline.]]
!!FridgeHorror
* What difference is there between Nazim and Dastan holding the dagger in the Sandglass. They both wound up back in time like they wanted. What if the present WAS destroyed but a little side effect of time travel is it undoes that... Still BILLIONS of lives are on his head, if only for a moment. And that was the gods' plan. Now their waiting to see if Dastan felt any remorse for killing all life on Earth after his second chance. Heck maybe Sand Demon would pursue him in a sequel who are basically the doomed masses of the alternate future.
** Uh hello! Dastan was trying to stop '''NIZAM''' from killing billions of people by messing with the past. Which I'd like to point out, ''HE DID!'' I'd also like to point out that Dastan wasn't interested in useing the power of the Sandglass, he was just trying to stop Nizam from doing so.
