- If you played the games, you'll cheer every time Dastan pulls a stunt lifted from them (there's even a brief wall run). They also managed to make such stunts look not too unrealistic most of the time.

- Tamina, using the Hassansin leader Zolm's own pet snake to give him a Family-Unfriendly Death — by forcing it to bite him in the eye!
- The part during Sand-trap scene when Dastan pulls that last-minute back-flip to safety was epic!
- Crowning Music of Awesome: The trailer music - "Blade Blade (or Black Blade)" by Two Steps from Hell.
