* MisplacedVegetation: Sunflowers in Canaan. They're actually rather popular in Israel these days, mind you, but they're native to the Americas.

One of the most obscure of all the Creator/DreamWorksAnimation films, and Dreamworks' first (and to date, only) Direct to Video feature release. Meant to be the follow-up/prequel to ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'', although it was made ''during'' that film's production. Basically, imagine ''Theatre/JosephAndTheAmazingTechnicolorDreamcoat'', but in animation, and with Creator/BenAffleck.

* BigBrotherBully: Taken to the logical extreme with Joseph's brothers selling him into slavery. It's no surprise that when he sees them again, Joseph goes OhCrap and immediately lashes out at them as the vizier.
* BigBrotherInstinct: In contrast to how they treated Joseph, Judah and the others react this way when Joseph frames Benjamin for theft and threatens to impress him into slavery. Joseph certainly notes the difference and subtly asks why they didn't protect him, by asking why they should care if Benjamin is locked up, beaten and treated like a slave.



* BittersweetEnding: Remember, the ending of this movie leads directly into WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt, which means that the Hebrew descendants of Joseph and his brothers will be enslaved by the Egyptians for decades.

Joseph also never got to see his mother again, or watch his father grow old.



* DeathByChildbirth: It is never stated but it is stated that Rachel is dead. In the bible, she died this way during the birth of Benjamin.

* EntertaininglyWrong: When Joseph encounters his brothers again while he's the vizier, they mention having a brother at home while looking to buy grain. He calls them liars and accuses them of being thieves, while he flashes back to the silver they received for selling them, assuming that they are referring to ''Joseph'' as the brother at home. To save their brother Simeon from imprisonment, they have to produce the "brother at home". Joseph doesn't expect that his mother had conceived and gave birth to a child in the twenty years he was gone; he had no reason to think such a thing. He's very surprised on encountering Benjamin.



* FrameUp: As part of a SecretTestOfCharacter, Joseph sneaks his golden goblet into Benjamin's bag of grain and accuses him of theft. He doesn't go through with it, however, when hearing the other brothers confess that they had sold Joseph into slavery.



* JerkassHasAPoint:
** While Jacob is in the wrong for showing favoritism towards Joseph, he is right that the brothers shouldn't have left Joseph alone to defend their flock from wolves. What's more, the brothers never confessed about selling Joseph into slavery, because the earful they would have received would have been entirely justified in how it hurt more people than Jacob.
** When Joseph as vizier encounters his brothers again, he calls them liars and thieves while they are buying grain. No one else knows, but he is right: they stole him from his father, and stole his freedom from him, and lied about his death to Jacob. He's also right to tell a worried Asenath that it doesn't look like they suffered or were sorry for selling him into slavery.
* KarmaHoudini: Subverted; at first it seems to Joseph that his brothers were this when he sees them in Egypt looking to buy grain. He even mentions to Asenath that if they're sorry then they haven't shown it, and to an extent he is correct in that Jacob for all those twenty years never found out what they did and punished them. Judah finally confesses, however, that they've been living with the guilt that they lost Joseph forever, hence why they treat Benjamin more kindly.



* WeAreNotGoingThroughThatAgain: PlayedForDrama. When Joseph as the Vizier threatens to make Benjamin a slave after framing him for theft, the brothers plead for their brother's life and explain that Jacob and Rachel heartbroken after they faked Joseph's death, and that they couldn't make their father relive that.

Added DiffLines:

* SecretTestOfCharacter: Joseph gives his brothers one at the end, framing Benjamin for a crime and seeing if his brothers will allow him to be taken as a slave. [[spoiler: They will not, and pass the test.]]

** Joseph's brothers only admit this many years later, when Joseph as the vizier threatens to make Benjamin a slave on charges of theft. By the time they realized how much they had broken their father's and Rachel's hearts, with Rachel dying after having Benjamin, Joseph was lost to them forever, and they didn't dare confess what they had done.
