* DuelingMovies: With ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', a movie that Disney just happened to be distributing at the time. It blew ''Pocahontas'' out of the water, and this particular duel spelled the beginning of the end of hand-drawn animation being the predominant form in feature films.

* TalkingToHimself: David Ogden Stiers voiced both Radcliffe and Wiggins. Thus, in the numerous scenes between the two, Stiers is doing all the voice work.

** Governor Ratcliffe was originally going to be voiced by Richard White (who previously voiced [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]]), but he was replaced by David Ogden Stiers (who had played Cogsworth in [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast the same film]]) because the filmmakers felt that audiences would only think of Gaston whenever Ratcliffe spoke if White did the voice.

** Creator/JohnCandy had provided a large amount of voice work into a character named "Redfeather", a turkey as Pocahontas's sidekick. However, after Candy's death in 1994, the concept was scrapped.

* AwesomeDearBoy: Russell Means called this "the finest feature film on American Indians Hollywood has turned out", and signed on in the hopes of creating a more sympathetic portrayal of Native Americans in mainstream film. The Native opinions on the film are [[LoveItOrHateIt split down the middle]], so YMMV with how well he succeeded.

* MagnumOpusDissonance: The studio had high hopes for the film, hoping it would gain an Oscar nomination as ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' had. This and ''Disney/TheLionKing'' were in production at the same time, and many animators opted to work on this as they and studio chief Jeffrey Katzenberg saw it as the more prestigious project of the two (Ironically, Katzenberg was one of the creative leads on ''Lion King''). The latter became an insane success. And while this was a significant hit, it received LoveItOrHateIt reactions (Katzenberg was spared some of this backlash due to getting the boot from Disney after ''Lion King'' hit theaters the year prior; the "Reject the winner/embrace the somewhat runner-up" deal had happened to him before with ''Disney/OliverAndCompany'' and ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', and would happen to him at least once more with ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'').
