** Perhaps the most [[FridgeBrilliance brilliant]] of these involves [[Film/Fantasia Chernabog]] summoning the Disney Villains. Brilliant in the way that Chernabog himself is from a work of Russian musical composition.

* WinBackTheCrowd: After a long string of critical and financial flops in the nineties, ''Anastasia'' was seen by many as a welcome return to form for Don Bluth, and provided a brief CareerResurrection for him.

* Narm: Rasputin has one of ''the'' coolest villain songs ever.....And his musical accompaniment consists of hundreds of singing ''bugs'' in the background. Doesn't make the song itself any less awesome though, thankfully.

* AwesomeArt: Part of the reason this film is often mistaken for a Disney production is it's stellar animation, especially as this was one of the very last hugely successfully hand-drawn animated films.; the layouts fully embrace the richness of Russian culture during the scenes in St. Petersburg and later of Paris which eventually takes the form of a series of Van Gogh paintings during the "Key to Her Past" sequence.
* AwesomeMusic: The songs, as noted in the EarWorm section below. [[https://youtu.be/OQKZ3-OpoXM But special mention]] [[https://youtu.be/8q3SvvixsWM goes to]] [[https://youtu.be/vt8lqReUPX0 David Newman's score.]] It earned his first and so far only Oscar nomination.

* AllAnimationIsDisney: Could very well be the UrExample of this. This film is mistaken for Disney more than any other animated film out there, due largely in part to it copying many aspects of the "[[TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation 1990s Disney Princess formula]]". It is mistaken for a Disney film so often that if you search "Anastasia" on Google, one of the very first search suggestions will be "anastasia disney". Interestingly enough, for once this may have actually been an advantage as the comparisons were positive.

* BrokenBase: The film as a whole. Is it a good, fun and adventurous film? Or a poor film that butchers a real life story and tries too hard to be Disney and end ups with a bad moral (family is important...until you meet your man. then you can just dump them).
* CrossoverShip: Dimitri with [[Disney/TreasurePlanet Jim Hawkins]]

** The Dowager Empress: Her son, daughter-in-law and almost all her grandchildren are brutally killed, she ''almost'' saves her favourite and last remaining grand daughter but loses her just seconds away from getting them both to safety. Then when she tries to find Anastasia, countless people try to con her just to win the reward money, and she resigns herself to living out the rest of her life alone. [[spoiler: As with the others things do improve during the film, as Anastasia returning gives her joy "she never thought she'd feel again".]]

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Anya. Is she a well developed, awesome female character, worthy of being remembered alongside the likes of Ariel and Belle? Or is she just a bitchy snobby character that tries too hard to be "Disney-like" and ends up abandoning her old grandma for a con?

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The ScreenToStageAdaptation completely removes the subplot involving Rasputin and Bartok. Fans of these characters did not take it well.
