* Godzilla created by Atlanteans? That sounds [[Film/Godzilla1994 familiar...]].
* They must've also created {{Franchise/Gamera}}.

However, due to it being used as a weapon, it ended up developing a mind of its own. (It also does not like Keyblade Wielders. At all.)

[[WMG: Whitmore was dying.]]
Though he looked healthy and could dress quickly and walk quickly for an old man Whitmore was actually dying of old age. Even though he is not ailing he gave an hint he did not have long to live when he tells the picture of Milo's late grandfather he was 'Going into the afterlife with that conscience by thunder'. Plus when we see Milo's sad looking face after Whitmore says that it seems to imply Milo has discovered Whitmore is dying. This would explain why Whitmore wanted Milo to find Atlantis because he promised Milo's grandfather Atlantis would be discovered before he died. So once he knew he had not long to live Whitmore arranged for Milo to lead the expidention to Atlantis. Milo at the end of the film sent a crystal to Whitmore which can keep him alive a little while longer after discovering the crystals help keep people alive.

[[WMG: Milo's grandfather was thought of as crazy.]]
Before he died Milo's grandfather was treated like Belle's father Maurice by being deemed 'crazy' by the board of directors. Milo's boss even did a loony looking face implying Milo's late relative was thought of as a lunatic and that he should be locked up in an asylum and just like Belle Milo was also considered to be a funny person by the directors as well.

Milo's friends did not only do the right thing by staying behind with him in Atlantis as Rourke's plan to steal the crystal was wrong but also their lives as well. In other words if the gang left with Rourke to sell the crystal Rourke out of greed would had killed them to take the credit and money for himself. For example despite Helga remaining loyal to Rourke he threw her off the balloon during the climax. It could be implied Rourke simply relayed on the gang just so he can get to Atlantis and steal the crystal. So basically he took advantage of the jobs Milo and everyone else did to get what he wanted. In other words by hiring Milo as a translator, Audrey as an engineer, Vinny as a dynamite expert and Mole as a digger they would get to their destination. If the gang betrayed Milo they would had all been killed and not earn their share of the money. Although Sweet was the first to turn against Rourke he along with Milo would had also died if the others left as it was implied Rourke not only decided to leave Milo behind to be 'part of the exhibit' but Sweet as well and Rourke even told him to put a 'bandage on his bleeding heart of his' after he punched the King.

At the beginning and the end of the movie, we see the amazing power of the Heart - a vast, ancient, no-longer-human intelligence made up of the intellects of Atlantis' past rulers, of which Kida is merely the newest and smallest part. So why did it meekly allow itself to be crated for transport to the surface? ''Maybe it wanted to go.'' Imagine the unveiling to the generals in Washington (or Berlin) of the new superweapon... which promptly declares itself God-Emperor and takes the city (despite the surprised and very brief resistance of the natives) to be the capital of perhaps... [[NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater Neo-Atlantis]]?

[[WMG: Gaetan 'The Mole' Moliere is actually Pig Pen from ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}.]]
Think about it. Pig Pen Had no name (everyone calls him Pig Pen) and Peanuts comic strip is populated by mentally ill geniuses: Lucy Van Pelt the sociopathic quack doctor that nevertheless knows a bit too much about psychiatry and manipulation for a kid her age and fell in love with the music genius Schroeder; Linus van Pelt the super strong and coordinated boy that memorized the Bible with photographic memory but believes in The Great Pumpkin and carries the blanket that he can use to slice off tree branches, hit coins in mid air and use as a sling David vs Goliath Style; Schroeder the music genius (I don't remember his mental illness); Peppermint Patty the athletic sports prodigy with learning disabilities and our favorite man Chuck Brown, whose genius is mostly hidden by his depression, but he did get the beat up natural Christmas tree instead of the aluminum one, meaning he is smarter than he-or others-give him credit for. This calls for and Atlantis/Peanuts crossover.

* Other points to consider:
** Thaddeus left the journal with Whitmore, wrapped up for delivery to Milo, "incase anything should happen to him." This would suggest that Thaddeus suspected his life might be in danger. Otherwise, why would a dedicated archaeologist wrap up and give away the one and only map to '''Atlantis''', instead of studying it and deciphering it so that he could actually find the lost city?
** The movie implies that the only useful information gleaned from the journal was translated by Milo (except for a loose summary of the missing page, which Rourke understood before Milo ever saw it). Whitmore didn't seem to know the pertinent details of how to get to the city until Milo was able to translate the journal. This would suggest that Thaddeus wasn't in possession of the journal for very long, otherwise he likely would've translated much of the journal and already provided Whitmore with the directions to the city.
** It's strongly implied that Milo never lets the journal out of his sight once he acquires it. This would mean that Rourke would've had to remove the missing page ''before'' Thaddeus wrapped it up to give it to Whitmore. If this is the case, then Thaddeus would likely have noticed that the most important page of the book had gone missing. If he suspected Rourke, he probably would've confronted him about it, explaining why Rourke would've killed the old man.
** As previously mentioned, Rourke warns Milo (at gunpoint, no less), to not "be like his grandfather" when they are discussing stealing the crystal from the atlanteans. It's strongly implied that Thaddeus's refusal to sell out like Rourke had unfortunate consequences for him - i.e. resulted in his murder. The tone of the conversation also suggests that Rourke had this exact same argument with Thaddeus, about selling the crystal on the black market.

[[WMG: Helga isn't actually German, she's really a [[Literature/TheDraka Draka]].]]
StatuesqueStunner, blond, AmazonianBeauty DarkActionGirl who has a garbled Anglo-German name, dresses like Lara Croft would if she was practical, and acts and talks, well, exhibitionistically by early 20th century standards. Oh, and she also has military background, being a lieutenant in someone's private army... in ''1914''. Doesn't all this ''scream'' Draka? Finally, her character design is very similar to the Draka girl on the cover of the ''Drakon'' novel. The only way it could've been any more obvious where she's from would not have gotten past the radar in 2001.
