Contrast SwordAndSorcery, on which the name is based (or vice versa). There is often some overlap, especially when mythology gets involved.

Contrast SwordAndSorcery, on which the name is based (or vice versa). Strictly speaking, the two genres are distinguished by SwordAndSorcery having explicitly fantastic settings, while Sword And Sandal at least pretends to depict real-world historical settings. There is often some overlap, overlap though, especially when mythology gets involved.

* This is the setting for Creator/TimMarquitz's ''Literature/WarGod'' novel, which is a DeconstructiveParody of this genre. The antiheroes intend to rig a tournament about this by upping the violence and murder to make their FakeUltimateHero look good so they can clean up when he crashes and burns.

A particular kind of PeriodPiece set in ancient biblical or mythological times, running the gamut from HeroicFantasy to HistoricalFiction; movies set in the [[AncientGrome Roman empire]] [[HollywoodHistory usually included]]. Alternatively, it may be used to describe FantasyCounterpartCulture equivalents in a secondary world. The subgenre of low-budget SwordAndSandal Italian films of the 50s and 60s is the Peplum.
