* OurAngelsAreDifferent: The angel of death looks like it came through a portal from outside of existance and is basically a giant glowing white cloud that pulls the breath of life from the first born children. No wings, no halo, and sword dripping with the blood of Egyptians.

** Ramses' father describes him as the "weak link" in a chain. Moses' time is from 1,400BC until 1,200BC, however, chains of metal construct in the sense that he's talking about weren't around until at least 255BC. So this is either taking liberties with history or linguistics.

So this is either taking liberties with history or linguistics. The figurative phrase "weakest link" wasn't even established ''until the 18th Century''.

** When Moses and Tzipporah first meet, he humiliates her by letting go of the rope she's pulling on, causing her to fall backwards into a pool of water. When Moses is trapped in the well in Midian, Tzipporah lets go of the rope she was using to pull him out as soon as she realizes who he is.

When Moses is trapped in the well in Midian, Tzipporah lets go of the rope she was using to pull him out as soon as she realizes who he is. Unlike the other two examples, Tzipporah was very well aware of the callback.

* FollowTheLeader: Follows quite a few plot elements originally added to the story by ''Film/TheTenCommandments''.



* IronicEcho: When Moses is fleeing Egypt after killing the Egyptian who was torturing a slave, Rameses sympathetically and lovingly tries to stop him. Moses says only "Goodbye, Brother" before running away. Rameses then yells out "Moses! Moses!!" in pleading despair. At the end of the movie, when Rameses [[spoiler:crashes onto the shore from the Red Sea closing in]], he once again screams out "Moses! Moses!!", but this time [[spoiler:it is out of fury at having lost not only his son, but his slaves and effectively his entire kingdom, all by Moses's hand]]. Once again, Moses only states "Goodbye, Brother."

* IronicEcho: IronicEcho:
** The song "The Ten Plagues" is punctuated by the words "Thus saiyeth The Lord", demanding Rameses yield to God. The words are repeated when he refuses, implying that "The Lord" is himself.

* AngryMobSong: The slaves' part of "Deliver Us", though in the way that "Look Down" from ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' is an AngryMobSong; a desperate, bitter, pleading sort of anger.



* ClimacticMusic: "The Plagues".



* OpeningChorus: "Deliver Us", with solos from Yocheved and Miriam.



* RaceLift: While there are Jews of just about every race and skin tone, the Israelites in the film are depicted as being much darker-skinned than the average Jew. Here, for example, is what [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mblts0jAXi1rxpoxko1_400.jpg Yocheved looked like in the film,]] but here is what [[http://images.fineartamerica.com/images-medium-large/ofra-haza-shaun-higson.jpg Ofra Haza,]] the Yemenite-Israeli actress who voiced her, looked like. For another example, here is what [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aaron1_8553.png Aaron looked like in the movie,]] and here is what [[http://images.starpulse.com/pictures/2007/11/06/previews/Jeff%20Goldblum-LRS-012009.jpg Jeff Goldblum,]] the Jewish actor who voiced him, looks like.
