* {{Tsundere}}: A Type B -- contrary to her reputation among fans as being very temperamental, Jasmine only ever reacts poorly to the people she believes are trying to use her, and otherwise she is a sunny and friendly person.

However, she is very quick to deflate pomposity and tell those who appear interested in her only for her beauty and kingdom ''exactly'' what she thinks of them.

It wasn't explained what "line" it was referring to
* BedlahBabe: In fact is probably the premier example in fiction (so much so that Halloween versions of this dress are often deliberately modelled after her). Her outfit is the source of some controversy and also some difficulties with portraying her in the line--since she doesn't wear a swishy ballgown she often looks out of place in the line when they're in unique {{Pimped Out Dress}}es.

* DragonInChief: To Abys Mal in the sequel. As the holder of Jafar's lamp, Mal is ''technically'' Jafar's master and can give him orders. But Jafar is a JackassGenie who twists Mal in wasting two of his wishes, and Mal is just so pathetic and Jafar is just so intimidating and powerful that he's able to boss Mal around without trying very hard.

** Jafar is essentially a "dark mirror" of sorts for Aladdin. Just older, and having chief flaws that are exaggerated versions of Aladdin's own. Essentially both want to move up in the world and resort to trickery in order to do so. Both resort to deception in this pursuit. Jafar pretending to be a calm, stoic, and loyal advisor whilst he is actually a maniacal, sadistic, and eccentric villain. Aladdin in his Prince Ali guise puts out an air of arrogance, boisterousness, and regality to cover up his more mild-mannered and humble true persona. Ironically enough, Jasmine is able to see through both of them. Both also at least start to become too dependent on the use of magic in their pursuits. Aladdin uses the Genie to set up his fašade as a prince, and eventually becomes so worried about keeping up appearances that he tells the Genie that he believes he is going to have to go back on his promise to free him as he doesn't think he can keep up the ruse without him. Jafar similarly depends on using magical artifacts like his snake staff that has hypnotic powers with which he maintains control over the Sultan, and also like Aladdin seeks to use the Genie to help move himself up but in a more forceful way. In the end Jafar is defeated by Aladdin using his own natural wits rather than magic with which me manages to play on Jafar's obsessive craving for power. Jafar himself is somewhat conscious of their similarities given his line during the ''Prince Ali Reprise'' song number where he says, "So Ali turns out to be merely Aladdin. Just a con, need I go on, take from me." Heck, both even have small, as well as greedy, comic relief animal sidekicks that hang out with them. *** The unused source material implies that like Aladdin, Jafar grew up in poverty and unappreciated by most people, though unlike Al, he didn't retain his nobility as he strove to become more in his life. ** It could also be said that Jafar comes to serve as this for Genie as well after he has made his wish to turn himself into a genie as well.

* TheStarscream: His lifestyle is as the MindControl-equipped power behind the throne to the weak sultan of Agrabah, with ambitions only to obtain greater magical power, but as Jasmine's coming-of-age threatens to introduce political competition[[note]] in the form of Jasmine coming into a queen's estate and being able to get rid of him, rather than in the form of her prospective husband staking out his own turf[[/note]], he conceives an intent to marry into the succession. ** Eventually after securing the genie he just makes a wish and ''is'' sultan of Agrabah, which is thinking kind of small compared to some versions of the story given it appears to be a wealthy little oasis city all by its lonesome in a bunch of dunelands, maybe a lesser cousin of Samarkand. Anyway he turns the real sultan into a court jester. He did ''not'' like pretending to respect the guy. ** Points for his coming up with the succession thing within the story, and from Iago's suggestion. No [[WifeHusbandry Hikaru Genji Plan]] here, folks!
