* RevealingReflection: While John Smith is exploring Virginia, Pocahontas follows him out of curiosity, keeping out of sight. When he stops by a waterfall to get a drink, he notices her reflection and casually gets up then goes to ready an ambush.

* InnocentBigot: John Smith at first. He talks about how amazing it will be to bring the advances of the British Empire over to the Virginia Colony and teach the natives to live and use the land "properly." Pocahontas is not impressed. Also combined with DiggingYourselfDeeper.

1995's ''Pocahontas'' is the 33rd entry in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon. It is [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory inspired by true events]], specifically by John Smith's rewrite of Pocahontas' life, which she herself vehemently denied. It takes the old legend of the Native American princess who supposedly saved the life of Englishman John Smith and turns it into a musical with few roots in the historical record, gving Pocahontas a significant age upgrade as well as romantic interest in John Smith. It literally has more [[{{Pun}} roots]] in fantasy, in fact a supporting character is a talking willow tree.

* FantasticRacism: The song "Savages" takes this to its logical extreme.
-->'''Ratcliffe''': They're not like you and me, which means they must be evil! We must sound the drums of war!
-->'''Kekata''': They're different from us, which means they can't be trusted!
-->'''Powhatan''': We must sound the drums of war!

* DarkerAndEdgier: For two reasons. 1) *Savages* is the most brutal and intense song that addresses the themes of othering, xenophobia, and genocide. 2) Near the end of the movie, John Smith sacrifices himself by throwing himself in front of him and gets shot in the process.
