Added DiffLines:

** There are also loads of references to VideoGame/{{ICO}} and especially VideoGames/ShadowOfTheColossus ([[spoiler:the pedestal where the Prince places Elika's body on is a direct lift, as is the overall plot of making a pact with the devil to save the one you love]]).

* BilingualBonus: The spells that Elika recites when using the compass feature are actually just her saying things like "Show the way" in Persian.

* ContinuityRebootContinuityReboot: This game is unconnected to the Sands of Time trilogy. Pity it was abandoned in order to return to that series.



* [[spoiler:DownerEnding]]: [[spoiler:The Prince releases Ahriman in order to revive Elika. The Prince calmly walks away as Ahriman's darkness engulfs the land. ''Somewhat'' subverted in the [[{{DLC}} Epilogue]], where it's revealed that the Prince revived Elika because her power is the only thing that can defeat Ahriman [[KilledOffForReal for good]]; if she'd stayed dead, it would have just been a waiting game until Ahriman's seal broke and he took over the land without resistance. Then it's played straight again when Elika leaves the Prince high and dry to go look for her people, and it's implied that Ahriman attacks him shortly after.]]

* ReverseGrip: The Prince will shift his scimitar from a standard saber grip to this when going into a defensive stance.

* ReverseGrip: The Prince will shift his scimitar from a standard saber grip to this when going into a defensive stance. His sword is actually subtly designed for switching between grips; there's a hole in the hilt for him to stick his index finger in to act as an axle when spinning, and the hilt extends up past the crossguard for him to grab without slicing his hand open on the blade.
