** The Cave of Wonders takes this up to eleven when Abu grabs the giant ruby, as they had been instructed not to touch anything inside other than the lamp. The cave then ''destroys itself'' with them still trapped within as punishment.

Added DiffLines:

* BlackComedyAnimalCruelty: Iago endures a lot of violence from Jafar - most apparent in the scene where he is violently smashed between a door closed by Jafar in a way that would kill a normal bird and clearly hurts Iago. However, Jafar never seems to have the intent to hurt Iago per se, it's more that he, out of his narcissism, doesn't care about Iago at all and treats him recklessly.

** Abu has a similar reaction when he presses the cave guardian's BerserkButton and tries to put the ruby back.

* OutOfCharacterAlert: Jasmine was confused by Jafar's sudden overprotectiveness when he questions Prince Ali's intent of marrying her. This was after Jasmine threaten to "get rid of him" upon being queen right to his face as revenge for supposedly executing "the boy from the market". While unaware of his Jafar's intention of marrying her for the throne, she was right to be suspicious.

-->"Your Highness, no! I must intercede on Jasmine's behalf. This boy is no different from the others. What makes him think he is worthy of the Princess?"

*** Until King of Thieves where Iago mentions "I have the monkey's lockpicks".



* LatexPerfection: This is how Jafar disguises himself as an old man to lure Aladdin to the Cave of Wonders, complete with his mask giving him bad, crooked teeth!
** Possibly justified as Jafar is some form of magician or sorcerer even before his wish to the Genie.

teeth. Justified, as Jafar is some form of magician or sorcerer even before his wish to the Genie.



* LoveAtFirstSight: On seeing Jasmine in the market-place, Aladdin is immediately smitten. After he rescues her from trouble, Jasmine isn't too far behind. Given the pure emotion of Aladdin and Jasmine's scenes together, the writers/animators actually make this trope ''work''.
** It can also be argued that it's more of a mutual crush at first sight. After they are initially torn apart, Aladdin spends a chunk of the film trying to win Jasmine's favor again. They have a little bonding time (albeit one night) and the two of them actually tackle issues like trust and self worth before they officially get together at the end. Compare to [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs earlier]] [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Disney]] [[Disney/{{Cinderella}} movies]] where the hero and heroine spend a grand total of one scene together, and by their second scene the antagonist has already been vanquished [[FourthDateMarriage and the two are ready to be married]].
*** Though the carpet's speed is never really detailed, the two of them travel from Agraba to Egypt, to Greece, to what might be Mongolia, to Bejing and back. (A distance of approximately 9,000 miles if we assume Agrabah is in the middle of Saudi Arabia) It's possible that was an excursion that took several days and was merely condensed into montage form. This would mean they had time to talk alone and get to know each other somewhat.

** 4. Ixnay on the WishingForMoreWishes.
*** This last one is probably the easiest to get around as the Genie is shown doing things for Al (and Jafar) without them explicitly wishing for it (escaping the cave, moving/redecorating the palace, and plenty of minor things during "Prince Ali"). He also apparently has no 6th sense about the number of wishes his master has left as he believes Aladdin is down by one until he is corrected.

** 4. Ixnay on the WishingForMoreWishes. \n*** This [[note]]This last one is probably the easiest to get around as the Genie is shown doing things for Al (and Jafar) without them explicitly wishing for it (escaping the cave, moving/redecorating the palace, and plenty of minor things during "Prince Ali").

*** The irony is that if Jafar HAD helped Aladdin up, he could have gotten the lamp and sent Aladdin on his way none the wiser.



*** Though, if the Genie granted his wish properly, he's not lying by saying he's a prince. His wish wasn't "Disguise me as a prince". It was "make me a prince". Thus, unless the Genie lied about the effects of his magic, Aladdin's claims of princehood are completely true.



** For the record, it's at least 4, but he couldn't quite pull the fourth one off. He tries to stab/bury him, drown him, and freeze him before the climax.



* WishingForMoreWishes: ZigZagged. The Genie tells Al, "Ix-nay on the wishing for more wishes!" up front. Being a GuileHero, Al still manages to finagle an extra one out of the Genie by tricking him into magicking them out of an inescapable cave without actually ''wishing'' for him to do so. After being befriended and freed, Genie is willing and able to help Al all he likes outside of the confines of ThreeWishes, but [[NecessaryDrawback takes a hit to his overall magical mojo]].
** Genie is also capable of doing other tasks for his master of his own accord. The only thing stopping him from saving Aladdin's life immediately seemed to be the deal they struck at the Oasis that stated Aladdin couldn't get any more free wishes. He moves and redecorates the palace for Jafar and applies more magic to Aladdin throughout "Prince Ali".

* DickDastardlyStopsToCheat: As Aladdin hangs on the steps of the Cave of Wonders, Jafar COULD have helped him up, gotten clear of the collapsing cave, taken the lamp in accordance with their agreement, and sent Aladdin on his way, none the wiser. Instead he decides to willingly dispose of the only person capable of entering the Cave who had no idea of the lamp's value while standing next to the collapsing cave himself.

All just because he wanted to screw Aladdin over for no real reason.
