* {{Mordor}}: Bohans fortress in the game had a normal, garden-like design. But in the movie, his fortress is surrounded by Lava.

* BastardBastard: In the movie, after Nariko was born, Shen [[spoiler:produced bastard offspring in an attempt to remedy the prophecy. Kai and Loki are his bastard children.]]
* TheChosenOne: After Nariko finds out that Loki is [[spoiler:Shens father and her half-brother]], she believes that he is the warrior the prophecy spoke of. After freeing him and giving Loki the sword, [[spoiler: he is beheaded seconds afterwards by Flying Fox.]]
* FaceDeathWithDignity: Whiptails death scene differs from the game. In the game, after being impaled by the sword, she whimpers to Bohan that she is scared of dying and begs him to help her (before he snaps her neck). Here, she instead accepts her fate with a smile and taunts Nariko before her body sinks to the watery depths.
* KarmaHoudini: Zigzagged with Shen. Despite being a terrible father and serial rapist Nariko brings him back to life when he is dying despite the fact he was going to {{Hell}} for his crimes. By the end, he still hasn't learned to respect his daughters, but lost his son and proven that he should have treated them better. And the fact he is already old and was going to Hell implies that if he doesn't straighten up soon he will be going their eventually.

Added DiffLines:

* ShooOutTheClowns: Most of the game alternates between drama and comedy. Kai [[spoiler: being wounded to the point of incapacitation]] marks the point where everything becomes completely serious.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassNormal: Despite lacking any magical powers, Kai proves capable of fighting her way past a minor army of guards. For that matter, Nariko is plenty dangerous even without the Heavenly Sword.

* TheChosenOne / TheUnchosenOne: The ending leaves it ambiguous which one Nariko is. [[spoiler: Shen tells her as she lies dying that she was the hero of prophesy all along, but Nariko claims that the prophesy was a lie, and that her actions were all her own.]]

* AdaptationalVillainy: In the film, Shen is turned into a neglectful father and serial rapist due to his desire for a son and disappointment in not procuring one.



* LargeHam: Alfred Molina's Bohan is still pretty hammy, but is more tamed than Andy Serkis'.

* LongLostRelative: In the film, Kai and Nariko are half-sisters born from their father's attempts to produce a son.


Added DiffLines:

* ParentalNeglect: Shen ignores both his daughters (and possibly others as well) for not being born sons and makes it clear he wants nothing to do with them. He ignored his one son by not knowing he was born. He never truly connects with any of his daughters by the end of the film and acts like he is ashamed of them.
* RapeAsDrama: In the film, Shen is turned into a rapist who forced himself on women in an attempt to produce a son. Both his daughters and one of his victims are disgusted by it. Though it is implied he will go to Hell for his crimes after he dies.
