* LaserGuidedKarma: Dimitri plans to take advantage of an innocent girl and heartbroken old woman by making Anya pose as Anastasia to get the reward money for himself. He ends up falling in love with Anya and then discovers she ''is'' the real Anastasia, meaning his actions have placed the woman he loves out of his reach and actually reunited the people he tried to con. [[spoiler: Luckily karma works both ways because his change of heart, refusing the reward money and walking away so Anya will be happy, results in her choosing to marry him anyway.]]

* LessonsInSophistication: Orphan Anya gets schooled in all things mannerly and urbane by LovableRogue Dmitri and Count Vladimir, because the men aim to pass Anya off as the missing Romanov princess, Anastasia. She's coached in ballroom dancing, dining etiquette, complete royal genealogy, and much more.

** The real Anastasia was just shot alongside her family in July 1918 at the age of 17. After this movie was made, the actual Romanovs were dug up and DNA typed. All the Romanov children were in the graves, including Anastasia. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anastasia_romanov#False_reports_of_survival_and_identification_of_Romanov_remains The Other Wiki has the details.]] Two of the children were discovered in a grave near Ekaterinburg, apart from the original discovery site in early 2008: Alexei and one of his other sisters, either Marie or Anastasia.

** The revolutionaries kill ''all'' the Romanovs they find, including Anastasia's siblings who are at oldest teenagers, and her little brother Alexei. They also pistol-whip Dimitri for tossing a vase at them.

* AndTheAdventureContinues: [[spoiler:The movie ends with Anastasia and Dimitri eloping. Sophie says it's a perfect ending but Marie tells her it's a perfect beginning.]]



* BittersweetEnding: Though it lends more on the happier side, [[spoiler:Anastasia leaves Marie again, but to get eloped with Dimitri. And even though she's leaving, Marie is nothing but content with her granddaughter's decision. Plus, Bartok apparently becomes a couple with a female bat.]]



* CharacterDevelopment: Dimitri goes from a dishonest conman planning to trick Marie for her money [[spoiler: to a selfless and principled gentleman who refuses the reward even if it means returning penniless to Russia, and walks away from Anya because he believes she'll be better off without him.]]

In 1916, Nicholas II, Czar of Russia, and his family, the Romanovs, were very happy until they were cursed by the evil {{Rasputin|TheMadMonk}} and their people revolted against them [[HammerAndSickleRemovedForYourProtection for some mystical reason]], aided by demons. All of the Romanovs apparently died in the attack except the Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna Romanova, the Czar's mother. A young kitchen boy helped Marie and one of the Czar's daughters, the eight-year-old Anastasia, escape. However, she and Marie got separated when Anastasia fell from a train and, presumably, died.

** Anastasia's survival. To be fair, while Anastasia's survival had never been likely, her death wasn’t confirmed until 2007, a whole ten years after the release of the film.
