** The movie Spartans get hit by this heavily, with the actions of the real Spartans used to attack them due to ValuesDissonance (killing imperfect children is the work of a devil today, in ancient times it could have been the difference between food stores lasting the winter or running out partway through, among other things) and all of their actions painted in the worst light possible. They even get attacked for being ''all the same race'', while these critics point out that the Persians are composed of many different peoples and nationalities. Apparently it's okay to slaughter innocent villagers and conquer other lands as long as you do it utilizing diversity.

* MemeticBadass: While the Spartans were already commonly regarded by historians as one of the most badass civilizations in all of history, this movie, also making bored high school history students interested in a quaint little city state that they would not even know existed in the first place, exaggerated the idea further that the Spartans were really a race of hypermuscular Supermen who can each kill millions by themselves while wearing only underwear. It's like applying ChuckNorrisFacts to an entire ancient city.

* {{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.

* 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.

* MemeticMolester: Xerxes. The Spartans also suffer from this as well due to all the massive HoYay Fanservice they provide, and the historical fact that spartans tolerated active homosexuality while living in communal barracks.

** It's hard to take many previous works with phrase [[YoureInsane "This is madness!"]] seriously anymore due to the ''300'' film.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Most of Tyler Bates's score were derived from other works such as ''Film/Titus'' to the point that Creator/WarnerBros posted a note on future releases that the music was "derived from preexisting compositions not authored by Tyler Bates."

* NightmareFuel:
** The [[TheSpartanWay Agoge]] will be seen as nightmarish to us today, what with ourselves having a more advanced psychological understanding of the [[FreudianExcuse long-term effects]] [[TheSociopath of child abuse]].
** The wall of dead bodies. The {{gross up close up}}s of all the corpses don't help much.
** The Tree of the Dead, which goes on the same premise as the wall.

** The Spartans fighting technologically and numerically superior Persians while wearing only briefs. If that's not TestosteronePoisoning, I don't know what else is.
