** Helga subtly [[LampshadeHanging Lampshades]] this when she says (when they are talking about the crystal's unequalled power) "I can think of a few countries who'd pay ''anything'' to find out..."

* Before he dies, the King of Atlantis gravely warns Rourke and his crew about taking the (very angry)mother crystal. We find out why [[BodyHorror when Rourke gets cut by a crystal shard.]] Had Kida/the Crystal reached the surface, countless others might have suffered this fate.

* Pay very close attention to the scene when Rourke throws Helga off his blimp. As Helga is being tossed over the gondola's railing, you can see her fall in the direction of the blimp's propellers, which are located just below the gondola. She misses them, but it's not hard to imagine what might've happened otherwise.
** It certainly isn't, considering that's what happened to Rourke just minutes later.

** It's never stated or implied Atlanteans of non-royal blood have the same aging process as royalty. We also see children in Atlantis, so they're clearly still having children at a population sustaining rate. It makes sense for only the royalty to age extremely slowly, since the crystal needs them and if the commoners are still having children without eventually passing on, Atlantis would be grossly overpopulated.

** FridgeBrilliance: The whole sub was filling up, without that engine door closed, more of the sub would be flooded, and [[TheNeedOfTheMany more lives would be lost.]]

* A blink and you'll miss it example. As the sub is filling with water, Audrey slams the door on at least two [[RedshirtArmy fellow engineers.]]

** The ''royal'' Atlanteans are effectively immortal, aging extremely slowly and having extremely long lifespans, presumably because the crystal needs them, but the commoners are never stated or implied to be the same. Besides, Atlantis would be grossly overpopulated if that were the case, since Atlantean children are shown. Also, Kida was very young when Atlantis sank, so it's possible she never learned to read while the rest of Atlantis forgot over generations, and it's no stretch the king made decrees and Kida was too young to remember.

** Not to mention that when they are received by the Atlanteans, Helga says that there wasn't supposed to be people in Atlantis and that that changes everything for the operation. Even looks a bit unpleased when Rourke just says it will all remain the same.

** Her mother was connected to it for too long. The king said that if "Kida remains bonded to the cystal for too long, she will be lost to it... Forever." So I assume her mom was just bonded to it for a bit to long when it sank the city and the crystal just absorbed her.

** And on that note, think about how the Crystal reacts when it senses evil or danger, as well as the uncalculated amount of power it possesses. Given the King's warning, and how Crystal/Kida just seems to ''allow'' herself to be captured, what if she was planning to obliterate the crew, along with a good chunk of the western coast, once they reached the surface?

* In the end of the sequel film "Atlantis: Milo's Return", the city of Atlantis finally reaches the surface and is exposed to the rest of the world for the first time in millennia. It would be quite interesting to speculate about humanity's progress over the next century because I suspect that the 2014 of that world would be completely unrecognizable to ours.
** For starters, World War II might NEVER have happened. No Hitler, no Nazis, no Holocaust, no Rape of Nanking, no bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, etc.
** Or the opposite. Atomic bombs were regarded as 'the weapon that will end war'... for about three years.
