** Creator/RobinWilliams goes nuts doing impersonations and shout outs. He starts off with [[Disney/PeterPan Tinkerbell]] ("In color!") and then goes through Creator/WoodyAllen, Carmen Miranda, Creator/MarxBrothers, Film/MrsDoubtfire, Franchise/{{Rocky}} (and ''Don King''), {{Rambo}}, Creator/BobHope and Creator/BingCrosby, Disney/{{Pocahontas}}, [[Disney/TheLionKing Pumbaa]] (lampshaded when he says "Whoa, talk about having an out-of-movie experience!"), and ends the entire thing with MickeyMouse from ''Steamboat Willie''. And when he shows wedding dresses to Jasmine, he suggests Minnie Mouse, Disney/TheLittleMermaid and... [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit Jessica Rabbit.]] He also shifted into [[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts Pluto]] to sniff out Kassim.

* DarkerAndEdgier: With a truly despicable villain, very intense {{Fight Scene}}s, and [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath arguably one of the most disturbing deaths in a Disney movie]], ''King Of Thieves'' is easily the darkest movie in the Aladdin trilogy. It also deals very explicitly with issues relating to organized crime, albeit of the ancient middle-eastern variety, but with surprisingly strong parallels to the modern western variety.

In order to save his son's life after he discovers their hideout, Cassim suggests Aladdin partake in it, prompting Sa'Luk to volunteer as his opponent.

* LimitedWardrobe: Finally averted, over the last few films and an entire TV show both Aladdin and Jasmine are shown in outfits other than "ratty street rat" clothes and the blue princess outfit. Aladdin appears in his first scene wearing clothing similar to his street rat design, though there are no torn patches and the coat is lined with gold fabric.

Aladdin appears in his first scene wearing clothing similar to his street rat design, though there are no torn patches and the coat is lined with gold fabric. For most of the film he wears more fashionable and regal clothing, and in fact [[FromDressToDressing tears off a sleeve]] to wrap the Hand of Midas so he wouldn't make direct contact.



* TheMagicTouch: Anything touched by the hand of Midas turns to gold, but its bronze handle is safe. Cassim knew that and so he uses his cloak to carry the thing. Sa'luk probably knew this too. [[spoiler: He just didn't realize he caught the hand by the gold part till it was too late.]]

Added DiffLines:

* OutOfFocus: Jasmine has very little to do in the movie, especially during the second act, as the movie is mostly about Aladdin and his father.


Added DiffLines:

* StoryBreakerPower: The Forty Thieves are formidable but are still normal humans, making them no match for Genie. During the attack on the wedding Genie was occupied [[AtlasPose trying to prevent the entire building from collapsing]], but once that was no longer an issue (the roof collapsed gradually until only [[ImpactSilhouette the outline of Genie's body was left]]) he got involved with the fight and quickly sent them running. Sa'luk even berates Cassim for not knowing they would be fighting a Genie. Similarly, in the climax on the TurtleIsland Genie was tasked with getting the turtle to sink faster, leaving the other characters to fight off what remained of the Forty Thieves.

* SelfDisposingVillain: [[spoiler: Sa'Luk accidentally grabs the Hand of Midas by the golden hand itself rather than the bronze handel, and is consequently turned into a gold statue.]]

* LikeFatherUnlikeSon: Aladdin and Cassim quickly realize they have nothing in common, Cassim enjoying the life of a thief and Alladin only doing it out of necessity and glad to be done with it. Their differing personalities cause their falling out.
