[[AC:The Video Game]]
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGxMEUxP1XQ The Spanish Gypsies Build Defenses!]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1vO6Md8P54 Soldiers Chorus!]] are very catchy. The latter one especially when someone's fort is damaged, prompting the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paK2au6JB5A fast, drum-adding]] remix.
* DesignatedHero: Sisyphus. He's the one who broke out of Tartarus and is going around rolling over everything in his way with a big rock, yet the story is centred on him.
* GeniusBonus: History buffs will get the most chuckles, but the humor is slapstick enough for anyone.
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: From what little we've seen from the sequel, some of the new art styles look drop-dead gorgeous. The new Greek art-style looks really close to the art on Greek pottery, and one level even looks like you're rolling through a painting!
* XMeetsY: Rampart meets ''VideoGame/MarbleMadness'' as animated by Creator/TerryGilliam.

[[AC:The Musical[=/=]The Film]]
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: One may be tempted to say, [[AllOfThem all of it]], but ''the'' CrowningMusicOfAwesome among the AwesomeMusic has to be "Don't Stop Believing", in reality by Music/{{Journey}}, InUniverse by Drew and Sherrie, which leaves Stacee Jaxx speechless upon hearing it for the first time and [[spoiler:has him cover it after reuniting with Arsenal]].
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Lonnie and Dennis have a [[HoYay love song]] but that aspect of the relationship is pretty much not mentioned ever again. It's a jukebox musical, but still.
** Which gets blown out to the point where the two of them become a couple in the movie. Read that again: two guys played by Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin becoming a couple.
* ClicheStorm
* HoYay: Between Lonny and Dennis. [[spoiler: They end up together through a duet of "[[Music/REOSpeedwagon Can't Fight This Feeling]]".]]
* {{Narm}}: Tom Cruise singing "I Wanna Know What Love Is" into Malin Akerman's butt.
* OneSceneWonder: The Rolling Stone employee in the movie.
* StrawmanHasAPoint: The movie seems to spent 25 percent of its running time mocking Patricia Whitmore and the other 75 percent showing why she has good reason to oppose the Sunset Strip rock subculture.
** [[spoiler:Only Jaxx really confirmed her views - and growing out of that kind of attitude was the whole point of his CharacterDevelopment in the movie.]]
