* AmbitionIsEvil: Particularly pronounced in comparison to Aladdin, who ultimately only wants power because he thinks it will make him good enough for Jasmine (with a bit of self esteem issues thrown in). Jafar wants power for power's sake, despite the fact he's already in a powerful position as the Grand Vizier and a DragonInChief to the Sultan, able to hypnotize him and make him into a PuppetKing whenever he feels like it. It just isn't enough for him; he wants more. He even becomes a powerful sorcerer once his second wish is granted then conquers Agrabah effortlessly. Not even that satisfies his greed apparently, finding that Genie was the one who granted him his powers would mean that he was one step below powerfully. Jafar uses his third BecomingTheGenie.

* BigBad: Jafar, the Sultan's primary advisor/counselor and Grand Vizier, who is also a DragonInChief and TheStarscream (ironic that his first mook for the Cave of Wonders job was voiced by [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Starscream's actor]]), and he intends to take over the kingdom with the magic lamp.

As princess of Agrabah, she must marry by her sixteenth birthday, yet only wishes to marry for love. Tired of the confines of palace life, she escapes and meets a peasant thief named Aladdin, whose life she saves when he is caught by the thugs of the evil vizier to her father, Jafar, before being returned to the palace. With the help of the Genie, Aladdin later becomes Prince Ali unbeknownst to Jasmine and tries to win her heart.

* FourFingeredHands: He has four fingers. It's one of several hints about his true identity, but the idea didn't make the final cut. [[Creator/RobinWilliams But guess who did the voice of the merchant?]][[labelnote:note]]In 2015, they admitted that it was still canon.[[/labelnote]]

* TalkingAnimal: Unlike Abu and Rajah, Iago is fully voiced. Fitting, since he's a parrot and justified by the fact that Jafer uplifted him with magic.

Added DiffLines:

* IconicOutfit: His rags, which are more iconic than his princely attire. Possibly lampshaded in-universe with the fact that he seems more comfortable in them than his prince garb (considering the fact that he wears his rags more often in the TV series at least).

* AmazonChaser: Downplayed. Aladdin was already in love with Jasmine the [[LoveAtFirstSight first moment he saw her]], but this [[http://briannathestrange.tumblr.com/post/162653028059/waltdisneydaily-aladdin-1992-dir-john moment]] has him look surprisingly and pleasingly impressed by her feat in acrobatics.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Aladdin is a great deal more ruthless and unscrupulous in the original tale, though he's technically an anti-hero in this series as well.
* AdaptationPersonalityChange: A downplayed example in the TV series, as a lot of episodes saw Aladdin act more smug than he did in the films, but his positive and noble attributes remained overall intact.

* FourFingeredHands: He (in all of his forms) has four fingers while the rest of the human cast has five. His fingers are chubbier as a result, and they actually make him look more gentle.
*** Except for when counting on his fingers, then he has as many as needed.

gentle. Except for when counting on his fingers, then he has as many as needed.



* RealityWarper: He has PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS that are certainly far beyond that of any human sorcerer, but he does explicitly state three limitations to them: he cannot kill (directly), make someone fall in love, or bring the dead back to life (though he implies that he ''can'' bring people BackFromTheDead... but he won't: CameBackWrong is implied.)
** He also cannot allow "substitutions, exchanges, or refunds" on wishes. Which means that he cannot undo any wish he grants.

* SadClown: In the first film, his over-the-top antics and corny jokes cover up the fact that he's trapped, miserable, and lonely. He notably gets less flamboyant and a bit more grounded (though still a joker) as his friendship with Aladdin grows stronger. However, once he is released from the lamp, he remains as goofy as ever.
** This takes a ''sharp'' left turn into a FunnyAneurysmMoment if you consider Creator/RobinWilliams's personal life and suicide.

* TheWorfEffect: He gets hit with this in ''The Return of Jafar'', to showcase how much being free from the lamp has weakened him. During the [[VillainSong "You're Only Second Rate" number]], Jafar, who Genie ''gave'' his power to and logically could not have been more powerful than Genie before he was free, shrugs off everything Genie throws at him, toys with him, and captures him with ease.

* SaveTheVillain: Unintentionally. Upon Abis Mal's introduction, the only reason Abis Mal wasn't killed by his own gang for foolishly demanding ''all'' the loot that they stole is that Aladdin swooped in and stole it himself from them thus directing all their ire at himself.



* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Despite his flaws, he's generally a worthy ruler knowing when to put his power into good use. In ''The King of Thieves'', he agrees to drop all charges against Aladdin for busting Cassim free because Aladdin only did so out of love and willingly came back to accept the consequences(plus he does like Aladdin and respects him). That's on top of changing the law so that Jasmine can MarryForLove.

* PsychopathicManchild: A very intelligent and manipulative example but when he lets his temper get the better of him, he acts like a a very spoiled and egoecentric child who just cannot stand anyone else even coming close to his level. He also cruelly tortures and toys Jasmine after she rejects him.
