* DirtyBusiness: One of the first things done after the victory was to separate the most skillful sailors and warriors from among the prisoners and [[MundaneSolution cut their throats]] to prevent them from serving the Sultan again. The rest were MadeASlave.
** Apparently the Spaniards and Venetians ''did'' read the EvilOverlordList.
* DudeWheresMyReward: In his joy at Don Juan's [[WarIsGlorious glorious victory]], Phillip of Spain rewarded Don Juan by putting him in charge of the [[UsefulNotes/TheEightyYearsWar endless war]] against the Dutch rebels.

* GodzillaThereshold: During the fight between Don Juan's ''La Real'' and Ali's ''Sultana'' both admirals freed their galley crews to fight. As Don Juan's galley crews were Spaniard convicts and Ali's were Christian slaves, [[CaptainObvious it worked well for Don Juan and backfired horribly on Ali]].

Added DiffLines:

* SuperweaponSurprise: The galleasses were at their combat debut. Six of them sunk ''seventy'' Ottoman ships (out of 206) and damaged lots of ships too slow to escape from their range.

* CoolVersusAwesome: Three of the greatest fleets of the galley era meet that day.


Added DiffLines:

* CombatPragmatist: The Venetians. In an era where naval battles were mostly fought by boarding parties and warships carried only a couple guns fore and aft, they had the fleet preceeded by six [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galleass galleasses]]: large merchant galleys converted to war, they carried [[MoreDakka 36 six heavy guns and many smaller ones each]] while still looking harmless cargo ships. [[CurbStompBattle The Ottomans lost 70 ships in the failed attempt to capture them]].

* AFatherToHisMen: The Turkish admiral, Ali Pasha, was a genuine rarity among Turkish (or for that matter European) high command in that he treated those under him decently, even the galley slaves. One account has him telling them before the battle that, "If we win, then I swear by God and His Prophet to free you all. If we lose, then God Himself has seen fit to free you."

--> What I cannot help taking amiss is that he charges me with being old and one-handed, as if it had been in my power to keep time from passing over me, or as if the loss of my hand had been brought about in some tavern, and not on the grandest occasion the past or present has seen, or the future can hope to see. If my wounds have no beauty to the beholder's eye, they are, at least, honourable in the estimation of those who know where they were received; for the soldier shows to greater advantage dead in battle than alive in flight; and so strongly is this my feeling, that if now it were proposed to perform an impossibility for me, I would rather have had my share in that mighty action, than be free from my wounds this minute without having been present at it.
