* HeKnowsTooMuch: At first, this is the reason why the Bandit Chief devotes so much time to finding and killing Ali Baba, to keep the location of his horde a secret. (When all his men are dead, however, it becomes a matter of self-preservation.)

* StupidEvil: The Forty Thieves are obsessed with finding Ali Baba to silence him, and just don't know when to quit. They spend a fortune to find the place (as the tailor gets smart and charges a larger fee each time) two of them are killed by the leader for messing up, and when they finally ''do'' find his house, ''all'' of them but the leader are killed in the attempt. But the leader ''still'' doesn't give up, and his final attempt gets ''himself'' killed. Relocating and setting up shop elsewhere may have been the smart thing, but they clearly lacked smarts.

[[caption-width-right:350:Kasim is stumped.]]



Ali Baba, a poor woodcutter, stumbles on the treasure cave of a band of robbers, which is magically sealed and must be opened by speaking the words "Open Sesame". He takes some of the treasure from the cave and becomes rich. His brother Kasim, a wealthy merchant, finds out Ali Baba suddenly had money, and learns how to get to the cave. Cassim is discovered by the robbers when he forgets the magic word to open the door, and is killed and his body cut into quarters and hung up at the entrance to the cave to warn others. Ali Baba comes to the cave, finds his brother's body, and retrieves it. The robbers discover the body is missing and come in search of whoever removed it. Their attempts to identify Ali Baba and then to kill him are repeatedly foiled by the clever slave-girl Morgiana, and all the thieves wind up dead. Morgiana marries Ali Baba's son, Ali Baba marries Kasim's wife, and the family lives happily ever after.
