* TheArtifact: He loses his golden bracelets in the first movie after he is freed, implying they were connected to his imprisonment somehow. Yet, he goes back to wearing them in all subsequent appearances. Most likely, these are now non-binding and purely aesthetic and worn because they make the character more [[IconicItem recognizable]]. At one point Genie admits that the only thing he's still a slave to is fashion.

He also really has very little to do in a lot of the later installments, mostly because his development arc was mostly finished, he remained so powerful that if he did do something, he'd just solve the plot in ten seconds, and Robin Williams didn't come back - but he still has to show up, because he's the Genie, and it's not ''Aladdin'' without him.

** Even after clearly not wanting to help Jafar take over Agrabah, Genie still never tries to give anything less than what Jafar wants; the thought of being a JackassGenie or using ExactWords doesn't even occur to him.
** When Aladdin has been thrown in a river, Genie is bound by the rules to be unable to just help Al escape unless Al says "Genie, I want you to save my life." Genie uses LoopholeAbuse to interpret Aladdin's head bobbing as a nod, and then saves him.



* ChewingTheScenery: Robin Williams at his finest.

%%* FunPersonified

to:

%%* FunPersonified* FunPersonified: Even in serious or tense moments, he's still goofing around, [[TheGenieKnowsJackNicholson making references to pop culture]], and abusing ToonPhysics to the nth degree. When he drops this entirely, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness the situation is incredibly dire]].



* TheGenieKnowsJackNicholson: {{Trope Namer|s}}.

to:

* TheGenieKnowsJackNicholson: {{Trope Namer|s}}. He makes odd pop culture references that would be way out of the time period. The other characters might look momentarily confused, but they just go with it.

* JawDrop: Provides the page image!image. He does it twice; after he realizes Al tricked him into getting out of the Cave of Wonders without using a wish, and when Jasmine appears to fall in love with Jafar instantly, despite being something Genie can't do.



* NarratorAllAlong: In a case of; WhatCouldHaveBeen, some Story Boards show that there would have been a reveal that the Peddler, seen at the start of the Film, is actually the Genie! This is also implied, as both have similar Colours, Both are the only two Characters to have FourFingeredHands, and both are Robin Williams roles?

* NoNameGiven: His real name is unknown, but it's possible he forgot it after 10,000 years.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives a short one to Aladdin when the latter, initially, backs out of his promise to free him, noting that he can't uphold the masquerade of being Prince Ali without the Genie nor become a Sultan without Genie's help:
--> '''The Genie''': I understand. After all, you've lied to everyone else. Hey, I was beginning to feel left out. Now if you excuse me, ''master''.
