* ArtisticLicenseGeology: The volcano. Unless it were pretty much already erupting, the crash of [[spoiler:A hot air balloon]] wouldn't even dent a lava dome. Further, it erupts in a "Strombolian" fashion (creating lava bombs, splatter, and explosively fast lava flows) but produces lava in a volume only seen in Hawai'ian eruption. They'd probably have something on the order of ''several hours'' to construct the shield in a Hawai'ian eruption, but RuleOfDrama! Presumably a true "Plinian" eruption (explosive, the type that the Mount St. Helens eruption followed) would have been too hard to animate. The danger from them are not lava, but pyroclastic clouds of red-hot gasses and tiny bits of magma that travel several ''hundred'' miles per hour.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics:
** The Atlantean tech gets a pass due to the 'sufficiently advanced technology', but there are a couple of instances. For instance, the ''Ulysses'' explodes after the crew escapes, when at thalassic depths it should have been crumpling in on itself as the boiler explosion within compromised its structure.

* CrazyPrepared: Rourke. Audrey's main advice to Milo when [[spoiler:they are going against him]] is that he is "never surprised." Case in point - he brings anti-aircraft guns and an army of biplanes with him on an ''underground/underwater mission'', despite having no reason to think he was going to be attacked by flying machines. What makes it even crazier is the fact they lost 90% of their equipment prior to that point. At least some of the credit should go to [[EccentricMillionaire Mr. Whitmore]], who had the expedition supplied with said equipment in the first place.

While a sequel named ''Shards of Chaos'' as well as an animated TV series named ''Team Atlantis'' was under development, the film's somewhat disappointing performance at the box-office lead Disney to cancel both the sequel and the series, the latter of which a bit into its production. Instead, the completed material for the series was reworked into a DirectToVideo sequel film named ''Atlantis: Milo's Return''.

The film has a different theme song for the Japanese version, called [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAJg4Pp2dWE "Crystal Vine"]], written by DREAMS COME TRUE.



* ArtisticLicenseGeology: The volcano. Unless it were pretty much already erupting, the crash of [[spoiler:A hot air balloon]] wouldn't even dent a lava dome. Further, it erupts in a "Strombolian" fashion (creating lava bombs, splatter, and explosively fast lava flows) but produces lava in a volume only seen in Hawai'ian eruption. They'd probably have something on the order of ''several hours'' to construct the shield in a Hawai'ian eruption, but RuleOfDrama!
** Presumably a true "Plinian" eruption (explosive, the type that the Mount St. Helens eruption followed) would have been too hard to animate. The danger from them are not lava, but pyroclastic clouds of red-hot gasses and tiny bits of magma that travel several ''hundred'' miles per hour.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: The Atlantean tech gets a pass due to the 'sufficiently advanced technology', but there are a couple of instances. For instance, the ''Ulysses'' explodes after the crew escapes, when at thalassic depths it should have been crumpling in on itself as the boiler explosion within compromised its structure.

* ContinuityNod: The sequel has a few of these:
** Milo delivers the phrase "two for flinching" when he gives Audrey a second hug after the first.
** Mole whispers something to three Atlantean women which causes them to beat him up for the remainder of the scene. You'd think he'd have learned his lesson the first time.
** Cookie serves the [[LethalChef slop]] from the first expedition again with the line "I told you it'd keep and keep and keep, now it's yours to eat and eat and eat". It gets fed to Oggy the moment Cookie isn't looking.
** When describing the size of the locks Kida should use to secure an allpowerful Atlantean spear, Vinny says "Locks, big ones" and uses the same gesture as when he described large paper clips.



* CrazyPrepared: Rourke. Audrey's main advice to Milo when [[spoiler:they are going against him]] is that he is "never surprised." Case in point - he brings anti-aircraft guns and an army of biplanes with him on an ''underground/underwater mission'', despite having no reason to think he was going to be attacked by flying machines.
** What makes it even crazier is the fact they lost 90% of their equipment prior to that point.
** At least some of the credit should go to [[EccentricMillionaire Mr. Whitmore]], who had the expedition supplied with said equipment in the first place.

* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: In the sequel, Erik Hellstrom, under the belief that he is Odin's reincarnation, steals Gungnir from Whitmore's mansion and attempts to use it to bring about Ragnarok.
** To be honest, Hellstrom's view of Ragnarok is a bit warped, since it mainly involves Surtr setting the sky ablaze and Þrymr freezing the surface of the earth as they both hold Gungnir.



* FreezeFrameBonus: During the scene in which the leviathan attacks, Mrs. Packard can be seen opening a crime novel and trying to read even as she relays communications for the rest of the panicked crew.

* GenreShift: For the sequel, which is a CompilationFilm (of a series that never aired) with a ParanormalInvestigation theme (and Atlantis itself only appearing at the beginning and the end, though its legacy is apparent throughout the film).



* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Vinny, Audrey. Mole, Cookie, and Mrs. Packard may have been OnlyInItForTheMoney, but unlike Rourke they're not willing to resort to murder.]]

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: All of the specialists who took part in Rourke's get-rich plan that ends up with the king of Atlantis dead, all so they can steal Atlants's treasure, are EasilyForgiven (and very richly rewarded) for having a last minute twinge of conscience. Granted they initially thought they were just going to be doing some elaborate grave-robbing from a long-dead civilization. Murder wasn't on their to-do list.]]

* MultinationalTeam: The crew for the expedition is multiethnic in 1914, no less.
** Audrey's inclusion made this the only film in Disney's canon to have a [[LeastCommonSkinTone Hispanic human character]] voiced by a Hispanic actor (or in this case, actress) until ''Disney/BigHero6'', which had Honey Lemon, another Hispanic girl, in its main cast.
* NeverSayDie: Pretty cleverly worked around in the scene where [[spoiler: Rourke]] is interrogating the King of Atlantis. At one point, he punches the King in the gut for not cooperating, and an enraged Kida (who is being held captive by [[spoiler:Rourke's]] men) starts threatening him in Atlantean. The official comic book adaption translates her words to 'I will kill you for that.'

** Averted, but Mole is called an animal and a pet which Milo replies as, "Close enough."
** Played straight with Oggy in the sequel.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The mythical Norse spear Gungnir is refered to as "Gunokneer" in the second film, presumably as a result of being described by Atlanteans.



* StupidEvil: [[spoiler:Rourke didn't ''need'' to steal the Atlanteans' source to become rich; [[CutLexLuthorACheck discovering a Lost Civilization alone would have made him rich anyway]]. In fact, the story ends with most of the cast coming back home and becoming rich thanks to the Atlantean "modest" reward; So Rourke was clearly an asshole just for the sake of it in the end.]]

* CrushTheKeepsake: At the climax, Rourke, after obtaining the Atlantean crystal and [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness having no more need of him]], punches Milo in the face. Milo's framed picture of him as a boy with his grandfather falls out and Rourke stomps on it, smashing the frame. Fortunately, the photo is intact, and what's more, it's this act that causes Audrey, followed by everybody else except [[TheDragon Helga]], to do a HeelFaceTurn and abandon Rourke.
