* {{Flanderization}}: An odd case of this being due to different actors. Williams' Genie is a screwball, but also has a sensitive and reasonable side, sometimes acting as a sort of father figure to Aladdin (particularly in King of Thieves). When Castellaneta plays him, this almost completely vanishes, and his hyperactive goofiness is played up much more.

** This takes a ''sharp'' left turn into a FunnyAneurysmMoment if you consider Robin William's personal life and suicide.

* WeakButSkilled: Aladdin generally lacks the skills to fight against opponents who are too physically imposing and has to rely on agility, dodging, and guile to defeat them. It explains how he cannot easily fight off the palace guards without tricking them.

* AntiHero: Earlier on due to growing up as a criminal, he's quite deceitful. [[CharacterDevelopment He got over it after the second movie.]]

* IdiotHero: Even though he's also a GuileHero, Aladdin is prone to foolish choices: He goes about his life carelessly while making the most moronic decisions, spare for a few moments of flash in the pan brilliance when his or somebody else's life depends on it. It's particularly noticeable when you realize how most of the other characters, save for Jasmine, spend their time trying to steer him to a correct choice. Still, his idiocy seems not to extend too far beyond what's needed for the Aesop of the week. And his moronic behavior goes through stages, as well: in the first movie, it's due to his horrifically low self esteem telling him that lying about himself will make people like him, even when it's obvious that Jasmine loves him for who he is. In the show, it shifts to either overconfidence or his [[ChronicHeroSyndrome chronic inability to pass by a problem and not try to solve it]].

* TalkingAnimal: Unlike Abu and Rajah. Justified; the typical small child believes that parrots talk at the same level as humans, and the movie is going by this belief. Also justified in that Jafar made him like that.

Fitting, since he's a parrot and the movie is going by this belief. Also justified in by the fact that Jafar made Jafer uplifted him like that.with magic.
