* GeniusBonus: Leonidas calling the Athenians "boy lovers" isn't an insult on their homosexuality. Athens prohibits ''over-aged'' prostitutes. Leonidas was saying Athenians are a bunch of wimps for not having sex with "real" men.

* RecursiveAdaptation: The film was based on a Frank Miller comic based on his view of the film ''The 300 Spartans''... as in he loved it when he saw it as a child, later saw it as an adult and hated it, so he wrote a comic using his childhood memories as the basis - he used a NostalgiaFilter to ''enhance'' the work! The reason it hits the RatedMForManly button is because it's based around that integral process!

Added DiffLines:

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Discounting the main cast, the Persian messenger is Hammond from ''VideoGame/DeadSpace'', and Xerxes is, of all characters, Paulo from ''Series/{{Lost}}''.
** [[Series/TheWire Jimmy McNulty]] as Theron continues with his philandering ways.
** And [[Creator/MichaelFassbender Stelios]] is a young [[Film/XMenFirstClass Magneto]].
** [[Creator/LenaHeadey Queen Gorgo]] is [[TheSarahConnorChronicles Sarah Connor]]... or should we say, [[Series/GameOfThrones Queen Cersei Lannister]], who is a much nicer person this time around (and more faithful to her husband, [[spoiler: even if she does get sexed up by another man]]).
** [[RealLifeRelative Eli Snyder]] is the young Leonidas and would later play a young [[Film/{{Watchmen}} Rorschach]].
** [[Creator/GerardButler THIS! IS!]] [[Film/ThePhantomOfTheOpera2004 OPERA!]]
** The Spartan Captain was also a captain under [[Film/{{Troy}} Achilles.]]
** And yes, that's [[Series/SpartacusBloodAndSand Oenomaus]] getting kicked into the bottomless pit. Looks like he TookALevelInBadass since then!
* HeyItsThatVoice: In the Japanese dub:
** [[Creator/JojiNakata Leonidas is]] [[Anime/{{Hellsing}} Alucard]], [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Kirei Kotomine]] and [[KeroroGunsou Giroro]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPjffXLJ2sM And he's as hammier as Gerard Butler is in English]].
** [[Creator/KenjiNomura The Persian Messenger is]] [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Iron Tager.]]
** Xerxes was the Brazilian voice of StuartLittle.

Added DiffLines:

** The '''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis THIS! IS SPARTA!]]''' line as well. The original comic never gave emphasis as to how the line was deliverd. Gerard Butler went ahead and hammed it, and the rest is history.
