* MusicalisInterruptus: The Captain walking in on Ja'far singing "A song is a dick in sheep's clothing!" to the Princess.

* MythologyGag: When the Sea-Witch is telling her story, it's heavily implied that King Triton is her brother, an element that didn't make it into the film version of ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' but was used in the Broadway adaptation.

* {{Jerkass}}: ''Aladdin''. "Jerkass" is an understatement. "Sociopathic [[spoiler:murdering]] pseudo-rapist" would probably be more accurate.

* AgentScully: Ja'far. To begin with, he is a staunch proponent of [[MagicVersusScience science and reason over stories of magic and djinns]] -- but he learns that he truly does live in a world with magic caves and flying carpets, and his plan to save the Magic Kingdom from invasion hinges on finding a Djinn with the power to grant wishes. His struggle to believe in magic as a solution to the world's problems is part of his CharacterDevelopment.

Jafar -- [[WritingAroundTrademarks or rather, "Ja'far"]] -- is a hardworking, honest politician in a Magic Kingdom that has fallen on hard times. Corruption is rampant on all levels, crime is up (thanks to the efforts of that thief Aladdin), and the kingdom is on the verge of bankruptcy. When the well-meaning but naive [[WideEyedIdealist princess]] angers the prince of the Kingdom of [[Creator/{{Pixar}} Pik-zahr]], Ja'far remembers a tale told to him by his deceased wife of an all-powerful Djinn, hidden in a common lamp. To save the kingdom from certain destruction, Ja'far must do everything he can to get his hands on that lamp, even when the road gets a little [[TitleDrop twisted]], to ensure a happy ending for all.
