** Leonidas isn't the only [[VideoGame/GodOfWarSeries Spartan]] with an affinity for making gods bleed.

** Leonidas isn't the only [[VideoGame/GodOfWarSeries Spartan]] with an affinity for making gods bleed. Then again, he's not the only character from a [[Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice Zack Snyder movie]] to do so either.
** Leonidas' most [[MemeticMutation well-remembered]] line "This Is Sparta!" is this when you realize that another warrior character played by Gerard Butler has a son who's known for starting the movie with [[Film/HowToTrainYourDragon "This is Berk."]]

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff:
** The movie was a ''massive'' hit in Greece and cultural neighbor Cyprus, probably because it depicted Greeks as total badasses.
** It's also extremely popular with the European Far-Right for less wholesome reasons.
* GratuitousSpecialEffects: This movie makes heavy use of prosthetics, GreenScreen and lots of CGI. The same battle was depicted in the movie ''The Three Hundred Spartans'' decades earlier with little more than fancy costumes and prop swords. The comic is comparatively more realistic with its visuals.

Added DiffLines:

* AccidentalAesop: (Taken from AccidentalAesop page) The film adaptation of 300 is often interpreted to glorify secular, westernized countries standing against the religious extremism and intolerance of the Middle East. However, some critics pointed out that in the film, Persia is a massive, wealthy and culturally diverse empire bent on expanding its influence throughout the world, while the Spartans are a small group of dedicated, zealous fighters who are willing to break the rules of war and martyr themselves to resist the invaders. Some viewers interpreted Persia as representing the United States and Spartans representing the terrorists.

* AmericansHateTingle: The movie was condemned as "Western Propaganda" in Iran [[note]] Formerly known as Persia [[/note]] due to the way Persians were portrayed. However, lots of people in the US and Canada had the same opinion, but they usually felt that it was so over-the-top it
[[CrossesTheLineTwice crossed the line twice]]. Frank Miller's opinions on the War on Terror contributed to this.
** Of course, since it is portrayed as a story being told to rouse an army against a hated enemy, it essentially ''is'' propaganda.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Big Lipped Alligator Moment}}: While the movie is not very historically accurate, most of the time you are able to nod and think, "Ok this didn't happen, but it's relatively realistic." Then suddenly a demonic, obese, executioner with claws for arms shows up to "discipline" Xerxes' generals. And it's never brought up again.
