* TheProblemWithLicensedGames / NoProblemWithLicensedGames: Two video game tie-ins were released; ''Rise of the Akkadian'' for the UsefulNotes/GameCube and UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 (which acts as a prequel to the film) and ''Sword of Osiris'' for the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance. (which acts as a sequel) While ''Rise of the Akkadian'' was panned for being a bland and repetitive beat 'em up, ''Sword of Osiris'' actually got some praise for being a pretty solid little side-scrolling action/platformer.

Considering it was developed by Creator/WayForwardTechnologies, who are well known for putting serious effort into even their licensed output, this isn't too surprising.

** The third film has perennial badass RonPerlman as the heroic king who has hired Mathyus to help him, but has a grand total of three scenes, only one of which shows him kicking any ass. Similarly, Mathyus and the film's BigBad--who admittedly has been pretty non-action-y for most of the movie--have a climactic chariot race instead of any kind of sword fight.

* SoBadItsGood: Oh good lord, is it ever. It's like somebody filmed the kind of classic heroic fantasy pulp novel you buy for a dollar at a bargain bin.

** The sequel gets a special prize for having a villain who turns into an invisible giant scorpion. No, not a regular giant scorpion, but one which is invisible as well. If you are thinking the concept of "Invisible Giant Scorpion" sounds like the name of a trope in the line of NinjaPirateZombieRobot, you aren't alone.

** NarmCharm: Also a lot. Especially Billy Zane in the third film. HamAndCheese ''galore''.
* PluckyComicRelief: Arpid is a very annoying one, as the movie doesn't need him.
