* 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.

** Leonidas isn't the only [[Franchise/GodOfWar Spartan]] with an affinity for making gods bleed.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The movie was a ''massive'' hit in Greece and cultural neighbor Cyprus, probably because it depicted Greeks as total {{badass}}es.

** One of Xerxes executioners looks like he came out directly from either Diablo or Warcraft.

** A number of lines from the movie are actually from Creator/{{Herodotus}}, including "fight in the shade" and "Tonight, we dine in Hades" (Hades was the underworld, or Hell, for Ancient Greeks). The Spartan epitaph planted by the side of the road is actually still visible as a marker from the Classical period:

* {{Tearjerker}}: The ending. Each man knows that he faces death at the hands of Xerxes, but they absolutely refuse to give in or abandon their king.
--> "My king, it is an honour to die by your side"
--> "It was an honour to have lived by yours"
