YMMV: Prince Caspian
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Regina Spektor 's "The Call" at the end of the movie.
  • Die for Our Ship: The Susan/Caspian shippers, despite the fact that there's absolutely no mention of it in the books, they never see each other again, and Caspian marries Ramandu's daughter at the end of Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Curse you Andrew Adamson for including that kiss.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: The geek at the train station (Warren) gained a fan club when some fans decided they didn't like the way Susan's and Caspian's relationship was treated and that "Phyllis" was a much better pairing.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The use of "The Call" at the end of Prince Caspian will likely become this once The Last Battle is made.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: On the one hand, you have Ben Barnes, whose portrayal of Prince Caspian drew upon Inigo Montoya; and on the other you have Eddie Izzard, who based his sword-fighting mouse Reepicheep on Errol Flynn, who also famously inspired Cary Elwes' performance. So their first meeting is really a The Princess Bride reunion by way of Captain Ersatzes.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Tyrion Lannister is slightly grumpier, but quite recognizable.
  • Strangled by the Red String: In the film (not the book), Caspian and Susan become a couple. For five minutes at the end of the movie because he rescued her once from some soldiers. Suddenly at the end the two are snogging in front of a crowd, only for their relationship to end five seconds later after Susan and her siblings return through the portal to England, meaning she and Caspian will never see each other again. Thus, there was no reason to include their romance in the first place because it was doomed to end anyway..
  • What an Idiot: The assault on the castle in Prince Caspian (which did not happen in the book) gave huge helpings of this to Peter. To be fair, everyone from Caspian to Lucy calls him out on it. Caspian also deserves a share of this one because it was his fault in the first place that they lost the element of surprise; he went into the castle with his own agenda and despite the obvious results of him changing the plan in the middle of a Stealth-Based Mission he shows no responsibility or remorse for his actions. To maintain order among the Narnian army, Peter has no choice but to let it go and share the blame.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: Prince Caspian was allegedly a children's movie and rated as PG. But despite that, Prince Caspian is probably the highest-bodycount, generally-dark movie to be given a PG rating since Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom spurred the creation of PG-13.
