Achiles provides examples of the following tropes:
- Achilles' Heel: Literally, as usual. Achilles dies after an arrow is shot in his heel.
- Adapted Out: There's not even a mention of Agamemnon.
- Art Imitates Art: The short fully borrows its style to art from Ancient Greece, from statues to theatre masks and pottery.
- The Faceless: All Trojan soldiers have a bull/minotaur head-shaped helmet, including Hector.
- Full-Frontal Assault: After the death of Patroclus, Achilles goes to confront Hector naked, just carrying a spear.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Patroclus is impaled on a spear by Hector and lifted, to Achilles' horror.
- Manly Gay: Achilles is a strong, bearded, muscular and loud warrior here, while Patroclus is clean-shaven and a tad more effeminate.
- Neck Snap: How Achilles kills Hector here.
- No Name Given: Achilles' mother, the nymph Thetis, appears in the short, but she isn't named.
- Show Within a Show: Achilles and Patroclus put masks on and reenact the abduction of Helen.
