** Other painful moments include Julius's ManlyTears as he chokes out: "You can't be hurt like this. You...you're ''Superman.''" Then to make it even worse, he has a small monologue about his and Gerry's future, and the latter starts sobbing as he listens. [[spoiler: Then you remember that Gerry died ten years after the events of the movie, meaning that the [[PlanningForTheFutureBeforeTheEnd future Julius outlined never happened.]]]]
--->'''Julius''': When all this is over...you and I, we're gonna move out to the same neighborhood together. And we're gonna get old, and we're gonna get fat...and there ain't gonna be all this black-white between us.


** When Sheryl is spending the night with the Boones, there are funny moments that showcase the contrast between her and Nikki… [[MoodWhiplash and then someone throws a brick through the window while making racial slurs]]. This is terrifying, but the Tear Jerker status is more a case of FridgeLogic: Boone's two daughters (including one who looks about five) ''immediately'' know how to react in this situation, running to their mother and, instead of panicking, staying calm and quiet, suggesting that they've been through this several times before. Boone's later words to Yoast confirm this.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkAeSl3CXfs Titans Spirit]] from Trevor Rabin's score.
** The film also boasts a rocking soundtrack with classic hits like 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough' and 'Spirit in the Sky'.

** [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy A Disney-produced film]] with "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" in its soundtrack.


** Also within Disney itself. With the box office success of ''Titans'', it signaled the end of Disney's goofy kid-centric sports films like ''Film/TheMightyDucks'' series and ushered in a wave of serious sports biopics from the studio specifically aimed at older audiences, such as ''Film/{{Miracle}}'', ''Film/{{Invincible}}'', ''Film/TheGreatestGameEverPlayed'', and the aforementioned ''Glory Road''.
* GrowingTheBeard: Disney's first attempt at a more serious sports film. They carved a niche in the '90s of RagtagBunchOfMisfits sports-themed comedies such as ''Film/TheMightyDucks'', ''Film/AngelsInTheOutfield'', and ''Film/TheBigGreen'', but here is a more straight-told dramatic film aimed at an older audience. The film was such a success that Disney's sports films followed in this pattern with ''Film/{{Miracle}}'', ''Film/{{Invincible}}'', ''Film/GloryRoad'', and ''Film/TheGreatestGameEverPlayed.''

* FollowTheLeader: The success of this film is probably right next to ''Film/{{Hoosiers}}'' in terms of "influential sports movie." ''Film/GloryRoad'', ''Film/WeAreMarshall'', ''Film/CoachCarter'' and ''Film/TheBlindSide'' are right in the same category.
