* {{Adorkable}}: Ja'far, in his youth, due to his incessant optimism, desire to please, and love of science. Especially evident around Sheherezade.



* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: The citizens of the Kingdom give Ja'far this treatment.

* InformedFlaw: The citizens talk a lot about how ugly Ja'far is, but even in the costume, Dylan Saunders doesn't look half bad. Possibly a reference to how attractive his [[AVeryPotterMusical Dumbledore]] was said to be. Or maybe beauty is just in the eye of the beholder, the citizens all hate Ja'far and his wife calls him "as wise as he is handsome, as handsome as he's kind."

** A particularly heartbreaking example is the moment where the Kingdom's entire 2D department is revealed to have been "sacked" - that is, put in a sack and then thrown out a window. Ja'far laments the loss of so many creative minds and craftsmen, only to admit that it's his fault, because he "didn't have them producing anything of value". [[TakeThat OUCH.]]

* AnachronismStew: In the ancient Middle East, the exports of the Magic Kingdom include "trash-compacting robots", Prince Achmed has a toy Woody doll, and the Djinn quotes movies from thousands of years in the future.

* HardWorkHardlyWorks: Ja'far is the only one in the palace actually trying to improve the lot of the Magic Kingdom, but all his efforts come to nothing, even when he gets hold of the magic lamp. In the end, he decides that [[spoiler:hard work isn't enough; to really change the world, you have to be optimistic (or even naive enough) to believe that you can actually do it, just like the Princess.]]

* 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.

* DumbassHasAPoint: Ja'far spends most of the story complaining about the unrealistic expectations and [[SoapBoxSadie oblivious idealism]] of people like the Princess. In the end, he decides that young people have to believe they can make the world perfect, or else they'll never even try -- and by the overly optimistic attempts of idealistic young people, [[EarnYourHappyEnding the world is made a tiny bit for better each generation that goes by]]. [[spoiler: And as it turns out, the Princess' plan to solve social inequality by making everyone a Princess ''worked.'']]

The seventh full-length musical by Creator/TeamStarKid, ''Twisted'' gives ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' the ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'' treatment, exploring the true story of Ja'far. Along the way, [=StarKid=] both thoroughly lampoons and pays its respects to the many, many tropes popularized by Creator/{{Disney}}.

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 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.
