These proceedings give a review of some of the non-Higgs physics results from ATLAS. The topics covered include Standard Model, exotics and SUSY. Rather than summarizing the very large number of results available in these areas, a few analyses are picked out to emphasize some important common themes for LHC physics. The first theme is the importance of good experimental resolution to maximize the sensitivity to new physics. As all new Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) physics will suffer from Standard Model backgrounds, a very good understanding of SM processes is also essential. The other two general themes that will be discussed are the choice of optimized variables and the use of data-driven background estimates.
