!!The Disney film
[[caption-width-right:350:Prince Ali, amorous he, Ali Ababwa!]]

* Aladdin's IndyPloy at the climax of the movie. He has nothing except his wits and agility, and he wins.
* "One Jump Ahead". It establishes in the first five minutes that the hero of this movie is ''already'' a badass; it's the story of how [[TookALevelInBadass he became an even]] ''[[TookALevelInBadass bigger]]'' [[TookALevelInBadass badass]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JR2Qqh-yHEU Jafar after he wishes to be the most powerful sorcerer in the world.]] He effortlessly humiliates the characters while singing his VillainSong, a [[DarkReprise mocking reprise]] of a previous song that praised the hero. The scene ends with some of the most [[EvilLaugh psychotic laughter ever recorded.]]
** When he sends Aladdin packing in the palace tower, [[LargeHam Jafar uses his staff to whack it into orbit like he's teeing off at the first hole of the Masters]]. Epic.
* The hero gets his own Moment of Awesome in the rematch, however - even though Jafar is just as powerful and seemingly just as unbeatable the second time around - by [[DidYouJustScamCthulhu tricking him into wishing for]] ''[[DidYouJustScamCthulhu even more power]]''... which comes with some rather significant drawbacks.
** The best part is that Aladdin has the balls to [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu mock him about it at the same time]].
--->'''Aladdin:''' Not so fast, Jafar! Aren't you forgetting something?
--->'''Jafar:''' Huh?
--->'''Aladdin:''' [[AGodAmI You wanted to be a genie? You got it!]]
--->'''Jafar:''' ''(as genie manacles appear on his arms)'' [[BigWhat What!?]]
--->'''Aladdin:''' ''(holds up Jafar's new lamp)'' [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor And everything that goes with it!]]
--->'''Jafar:''' ''[[OhCrap No!!!]]'' '''''[[BigNo Noooooo--!!!!!]]'''''
--->'''Aladdin:''' ''(as Jafar is sucked into the lamp)'' [[IronicEcho Phenomenal cosmic powers!]] [[BondOneLiner Itty-bitty living space.]]
** Likewise, while Genie!Jafar does get LaserGuidedKarma for it immediately afterward, his AGodAmI speech -- complete with him literally '''''juggling planets''''' -- is still quite an adrenaline rush:
* Pretty much any time Genie's on screen. Could also count as a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}} and Awesome Music for his musical numbers "Friend Like Me" and "Prince Ali".
** The "Prince Ali" sequence is particularly spectacular. ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEryAoLfnAA This]]'', my friends, is how you grant a wish with all the trimmings.
* Another one for Aladdin: After Jafar's brilliantly intricate plan to do away with Aladdin seemingly succeeds, he mesmerizes the Sultan into allowing him to marry Princess Jasmine. When Jasmine states that she wants to marry Prince Ali (a.k.a. Aladdin), Jafar tells her the news, in his best fake mournful voice. Then, out of nowhere:
-->'''Aladdin:''' Better check your crystal ball again, Jafar!
** Aladdin then proceeds to march right in, grab Jafar's snakehead staff and smash it on the ground, freeing the Sultan from Jafar's spell.
* Jasmine herself confidently wows Aladdin by showing just how quickly she can master the art of vaulting from roof to roof.
* Right after the Genie's song-and-dance, reality-warping DisneyAcidSequence introduction, Aladdin effortlessly [[DidYouJustScamCthulhu tricks him into providing a "free" wish]] -- by prodding his ego until the Genie whisks him and Abu out of the cave. Cements Aladdin's reputation as a GuileHero ''par excellence''.
** Later, when the Genie realizes what Aladdin did, it leads to one of his many SugarWiki/FunnyMoments!
-->'''Genie:'''...(''JawDrop'') Well, I feel sheepish. (''turns into a [[{{Pun}} sheep]]'') All right, you baaaah-d boy, but no more freebies!
* The entire sequence where Aladdin, Abu, and the carpet try to fly out of the Cave of Wonders while lava shoots everywhere.
* Jasmine revealing her identity to Jafar's guards, and making them tremble.
-->'''Jasmine:''' Unhand him! [''pulls off her hood''] By order of the ''princess''!\\
'''Razoul:''' [[OhCrap Princess Jasmine!]] [''kneels down and forces Aladdin down on his knees, the guards kneel down'']\\
'''Aladdin:''' The ''princess?''\\
'''Abu:''' The princess?!\\
'''Razoul:''' What are you doing outside the palace, and with this street rat?\\
'''Jasmine:''' That's not your concern. Do as I command, release him!\\
'''Razoul:''' I would, Princess. Except my orders come from Jafar...you'll have to take it up with him.\\
'''Jasmine: ''' Believe me, [[DeathGlare I will!]]
** Jasmine was one of the first heroines of Disney to break the prototype of placid Disney Heroines.
*** No only that, but Aladdin himself is the first male in the lead role in a princess story by Disney, and actually has a fleshed out personality.
** When the Sultan tries to brush the whole thing under the rug and get back to finding Jasmine a husband, she makes it clear that she is ''not'' letting it go.
--->'''Jasmine [To Jafar]:''' At least some good will come out of my being forced to marry. When I am queen I will have the power to get rid of you!"
* Carpet being the best wingman ever and giving Aladdin that extra push for his BigDamnKiss with Jasmine. One wonders if they would've spent the whole night just looking into each others eyes if he hadn't.
* Aladdin telling off a rich jerk who is visiting Jasmine at the movie (the guy nearly ran over some kids and yelled at them for it):
-->'''Aladdin:''' If I were as rich as you, I could afford some manners.
* "How dare you? All of you! Standing around, deciding my future? I am not a prize to be won!" A lot of people have applauded Jasmine's outburst there. Even Jafar, who cares nothing for Jasmine's feelings, looks uncomfortable at her words.
* The Carpet is only a secondary character with nary a word to say - but variants on his leitmotif get a lot of use because that's what's being used in all the flight scenes and there's a lot of them. The Cave Of Wonders escape? A lot of that is based on Carpet's theme.


* When the movie was released in 1992, it earned praise from the late Creator/ChuckJones himself, who called it 'the funniest feature ever made'.
* The Regina Belle and Peabo Bryson version of "A Whole New World" won three major awards in 1993: the Academy Award for Best Original Song, a Grammy Award for Song of the Year, and a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song. In addition, the song is the first and so far only song from a Disney animated film to top the Billboard Hot 100. It also spent 6 weeks atop Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, and one week at #1 on Billboard's Mainstream Top 40 chart.
