* WellDoneSonGuy: Even after the death of his father, Rameses is still struggling with the man's immense shadow and wants to be the kind of Pharaoh his father was. This leads to tragedy for the Egyptians. TruthInTelevision for this one, at least for the first half of that statement. Rameses II is by all accounts one Egypt's greatest Pharaoh, and many speculate that his achievements were motivated by a desire to live up to his distant father's legacy.

** The Bible never mentions Pharaoh's name, only ever referring to him by title. Historians do not agree on which Pharoah is most likely the one written of in Exodus. The film goes with Seti I as the Pharaoh who ordered the purge, and Rameses II as the Pharaoh at the time of the Plagues, which is one possibility, but not one considered very likely by most scholars.

* TakeBackYourGift: Non-romantic example: Moses giving Rameses back his ring after returning to Egypt is presented as symbolic of Moses (reluctantly) cutting his brotherly ties with the pharoah in order to carry out the mission God gave him.

Added DiffLines:

* AmazonChaser: Both averted and played straight. While Ramses and Moses are both initially attracted to Tzipporah's beauty, once she tries to bite Ramses he quickly loses interest and foists her off on Moses. On the other hand, Moses is completely smitten after she ties up his guards and climbs out his window.

* NoodleIncident: When attempting to persuade Rameses to let the Hebrews go, Moses recalls the time they he and Rameses switched the heads of the idols in the Temple of Ra, and how much this has angered their father.
-->'''Rameses''': If I recall correctly, you were there switching heads right along with me.\\
'''Moses''': No, that was you, I didn't do that.\\
'''Rameses''': Oh yes you did. You put the hippo on the crocodile and the crocodile...\\
'''Moses''': ''[remembering more of their antic]'' ...on the falcon.\\
'''Rameses''': Yes! And the priests thought it was a horrible omen and FASTED FOR TWO MONTHS! FATHER WAS FURIOUS! YOU WERE ALWAYS GETTING ME INTO TROUBLE!

* BreakTheHaughty: BreakTheHaughty:
** Moses is thoroughly broken when he learns the truth of his heritage. It takes an inspirational "YouAreBetterThanYouThink" song from Jethro to rebuild him.
