->''There were nights when the winds of the Etherium, so inviting in their promise of flight and freedom, made one's spirit soar.''

For the DisneyAnimatedCanon's 43rd entry, the studio proudly presents: Robert Louis Stevenson's ''Literature/TreasureIsland'' - [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE!]] ''Literally''.

With great gusto at that, containing: [[SpaceIsAnOcean Space-sailing]] ships, [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot aliens, robots, cyborgs]] and SpacePirates. Telling: one boy's search for the treasure of the evil pirate Flint, the Loot of a Thousand Worlds. Starring: The human [[AudienceSurrogate Jim Hawkins]], the spry cat-lady [[TheCaptain Captain Amelia]], a bookish dog-like alien named [[TheProfessor Dr. Delbert]] [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Doppler]], the [[AntiVillain fiendish]] cybernetic shaven bear [[ParentalSubstitute Silver]], and a [[EmpathyPet metamorphosing]] pink blob named [[PirateParrot Morph]] in a {{steampunk}} alternate [[PlanetOfHats pirate universe]].

This [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney film]] was released in an overcrowded market--right on the heels of the second ''Film/HarryPotter'' Film and less than a week after ''Film/DieAnotherDay''. It may also have suffered due to the Disney Marketing Department's decision to advertise it primarily during [[AnimationAgeGhetto time slots occupied by kids' shows]], when its premise and content are more suitable for teenage audiences, especially regarding the absent father angle.

Whatever the reason, many fans blame this film for rudely ending Disney's confidence in hand-drawn animation for features, and which is what started the decline in their production of such films, closing their studios [[Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog until 2009]]. Today, it's become a [[VindicatedByCable Cult Film]] thanks to its intricate blend of CGI and traditional animation.

It portrays a father-son bond between the two main characters and some amazingly choreographed action sequences. According to WordOfGod, this film was made to be Disney's big film for "single parent, Generation X" kids, as reflected in the [[ParentalAbandonment darker family subtext]]. While it performed well with critics, the film flopped and flopped ''hard'' financially. As said previously, though, the film has gained a new lease on life [[VindicatedByCable thanks to DVD and television.]]

----

!!This movie provides examples of:

* AbnormalLimbRotationRange: Mr. Turnbuckle.
* AccidentalAimingSkills: Subverted, see ImprobableAimingSkills below.
* ActionGirl: Captain Amelia as a LadyOfWar.
* {{Adorkable}}: Dr. Doppler, even TheCaptain thinks so.
* AFriendInNeed: Jim and Silver, to each other.
* AfterActionPatchup: mostly off-stage, and GenderFlipped, but still {{UST}}
* AllForNothing: After Scroop [[spoiler:is delivered his [[KarmicDeath karmic]] DisneyVillainDeath]], there isn't much point to disabling the laser cannons.
* AllThereInTheManual: A good chunk of exposition is provided by the art book, "A Voyage of Discovery"; who built Treasure Planet, how Flint got B.E.N, Silver's early life, why Leland Hawkins left his family, and the names of every one of the ''Legacy'''s crew; very useful information and leaves just enough to the imagination to write a prequel fanfic. (Then again, that last part may not be a good thing.)
* AntiHero: Jim, as far as DisneyAnimatedCanon will allow it. Post-{{Timeskip}}, he's constantly running afoul of the law. His mother tells Doppler outright that the solar sailor sequence was a violation of his [[NoodleIncident parole]], he is failing all of his classes, and he is starting to become more withdrawn.
* AntiVillain: John Silver. He's ''supposed'' to be the main antagonist, and he remains so for any part of the film where Scroop doesn't show up, but it turns out he's even better at being a father figure to Jim.
* ArmCannon: Long John Silver is a cyborg and has an arm that transforms into a cannon at one point.
* ArtifactTitle: ''Treasure Planet: Battle at Procyon.'' Treasure Planet is only mentioned in Jim's logs between missions. One of the logs mentions a mapping device similar to the one in the movie, but the other mentions of Treasure Planet aren't really relevant except as backstory.
* ArtificialGravity: Oddly played straight in a world where, among other things, people can breathe in space. Perhaps ''too'' straight, as [[spoiler:it needs to be engaged even when the ship is close enough to the surface of Treasure Planet to be seen from it]]. And people start getting [[GravitySucks actively sucked into space]] if it's off, even if the ship is rising.
* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: "Does an active galactic nucleus have superluminal jets?" No, Dr. Doppler. While they ''are'' relativistic, the particles do not exceed the speed of light. Being such a self-styled genius, he really ought to know better.
** Doppler is most likely referring to the jets being emitted from some radio galaxies, quasars and microquasars, which indeed appear to travel faster than light. There is much debate in literature about whether these are actually superluminal or merely an optical illusion, although current consensus favors the latter view.
* ArtMajorPhysics: More like MindScrew physics, especially in light of ''Battle at Procyon'', which has actual [[FloatingIsland floating islands]] and even ''fish'' on the maps.
** One can not quite underline enough how inaccurately the film portrayed supernovas.
* AxCrazy: Scroop. To a ridiculous extreme.
* BabiesEverAfter: [[spoiler:Dr. Doppler and Captain Amelia, and their children. In both trope and number, the babies are a ShoutOut to the LadyAndTheTramp pups.]]
** [[spoiler: According to [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0133240/trivia?ref_=tt_trv_trv#spoilers IMDB]], [[MisterSeahorse Doppler gave birth to the babies.]] But thanks to {{Executive Meddling}}, the line that revealed this was cut.]]
* BadBoss: Silver is ''absurdly'' aggressive towards his pirates, and even the enormous Mr. Hands (the huge four-armed guy) is scared of him. Justified as it's probably the only way to keep them in line.
* BadassAdorable: Both Morph and B.E.N. have their moments.
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: But, really, how do characters in space suits convey a father-and-son relationship so perfectly? According to the art book, space isn't actually a vacuum. Instead, it is made of 'aether' a space-filling substance or field that explains how the ship moves through it (as well as other things) and how the crew can breathe. This fits with the stylistic decision to make this movie science fiction that Robert Louis Stevenson might have imagined based on his time period (when 'ether', 'phlogiston' and 'protoplasm' were actual hypotheses.)
* BelligerentSexualTension: Doctor Doppler and Captain Amelia.
* BellyMouth: A feature of one crew member. What appeared to be his head was actually another chap sitting on his shoulders, with dreadlocks-like legs.
* BeneathTheEarth: The [[CrypticConversation centroid of the mechanism]].
* BigCreepyCrawlies / InsectoidAliens: Mr. Scroop.
* BigDumbObject: [[spoiler:Treasure Planet.]]
* BigNo: Silver yells this when [[spoiler:the treasure starts to fall into the centroid]].
* BittersweetEnding: While Silver and Jim part as friends, and Jim is shown to be on the way to a better future, there's no strong indication that Silver and Jim will ever meet again.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: [[spoiler: Amelia and Delbert's children. One has red hair, one has blonde hair, and two have are brunettes Their names are not known.]]
* BookEnds: Jim riding his homemade solar surfer and being brought to the Benbow Inn by the police.
* BridalCarry: With B.E.N. commenting on the implications
* BrilliantButLazy: Jim Hawkins, according to his mother in an overheard conversation.
-->"... And you know how smart he is. He built his first solar surfer when he was eight! And yet he's failing in school..."
* BreakUpMakeUpScenario: Jimmy and Silver.
* ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes: {{Justified|Trope}}, since BEN's eyes are light-up displays.
* ChanceActivation: After the Benbow Inn has been burnt down and the Hawkinses are staying with [[TheSmartGuy Dr. Doppler]], the good doctor is explaining that he has no clue of function of the [[PlotDevice "odd little sphere"]] which Jim now possesses. Cue Jim fiddling around with the sphere and unlocking it, thereby discovering its function: [[spoiler:a map containing the location of the legendary Treasure Planet.]]
* ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler:The artificial gravity.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Morph. He's a shapeshifter. The moment he and the map-ball are in the same close-up practically SCREAMS "Before the movie's over, I'm gonna morph into this ball".]]
* ChekhovsSkill: Solar surfing, and this quote:
-->''And you know how smart he is. He built his first solar surfer when he was eight!
* ClickHello: Dr. Doppler does this to a pirate after being captured.
* CombatStilettos: Captain Amelia dons a thigh-high pair of these as part of her outfit.
* CompositeCharacter: [[AlliterativeName Doctor Delbert Doppler]] fulfills the roles of both Doctor Livesey and Squire Trelawney.
* ConspicuousCG: Actually, it's deliberate. The technological parts of machines, most obviously the ships, were done with CGI, while organic things like aliens and nature were drawn by hand. It was deliberately about 40/60.
** Most of the CGI is actually integrated very well with the 2D animation. The [[SpaceWhale Space Whales]], on the other hand, are rather {{egregious}}.
* CoolGate: The portal.
* CoolStarship: The RLS Legacy.
* CreatorCameo: John Musker and Ron Clements appear giving Jim and Doppler directions during the scene at the spaceport.
* CrypticConversation: B.E.N.'s patchwork memory about the planet.
* CyberPunk[=/=]SteamPunk: A nice blend, with designs for the costumes, machinery, and ships that look distinctly SteamPunk in origin mixed with power, concepts, and designs from CyberPunk.
* DeathGlare: A very nicely done one from Jim to B.E.N.
-->'''Jim Hawkins:''' If I'm not back in five minutes, leave without me.\\
'''Ben:''' I am not leaving my buddy Jimmy!\\
''(Death Glare)''\\
'''Ben:''' ... [[VerbalBackspace Unless he looks at me like that.]] Bye Jim!
** Also, Captain Amelia gives Doctor Doppler a quick one before turning around then grabbing his jaw to stop him from babbling.
** Silver himself gives a non comedic example to Jim. If not for a convenient explosion, he probably would have done more than just glare.
** The entire negotiation between Jim and Silver, when Silver tries to convince him to give over the map and [[WeCanRuleTogether join him in sharing the treasure,]] basically consists of Jim giving him a several minute long DeathGlare while Silver tries (and fails) to soften him up.
* DeadpanSnarker: [[WorldOfSnark Pretty much everyone]] aboard the ''R.L.S. Legacy''. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in Dr. Doppler's case, considering who his [[DavidHydePierce voice actor is.]]
* DefrostingIceQueen: Captain Amelia.
* DesertIsland: B.E.N. is marooned on Treasure Planet.
* DespairSpeech: Dr. Doppler gives a short one when [[spoiler: Captain Amelia]] is seriously injured and he can't help her, outpouring his emotions in a tremendous run-on sentence, seriously believing all is lost.
-->'''Dr. Doppler:''' Dang it, Jim. I'm an astronomer, not a doctor! I mean, I ''am'' a doctor but I'm not ''that'' kind of doctor I have a ''doctorate'' it's not the same ''thing'' you can't ''help'' people with a doctorate you just ''sit'' there and you're ''useless!''
* DisappearedDad: One of the few--if only--Disney movies where the parent [[spoiler:actually walks out on his family rather than dying.]]
* DismissingACompliment: Amelia tells Silver he can stow the flattery.
* DistantPrologue: The opening sequence takes place 12 years before the story's main events.
* DisneyDeath: Averted with [[spoiler:Mr. Arrow]], which wouldn't be such a big deal if [[MuppetTreasureIsland a different Disney-affiliated Treasure Island adaptation]] hadn't played it straight.
* DisneyDogFight
* {{Disneyfication}}: Silver isn't anywhere as nice in the original book. And Billy Bones was a most unwelcome guest at the Benbow, staying several months before he died. And Mr Arrow was a drunk.
* DisneyVillainDeath: Misters Hands, Dogbreath and Mackriki when they [[spoiler: fall from the longboat room]]. Misters Pigors and Turnbuckle [[spoiler: fall towards the exploding planet's core]]. Last but not least, Mr. Scroop: in his case, a villain falls ''up''. So, [[IncrediblyLamePun Inverted Trope]]?
** When FridgeHorror kicks in, one realises that Scroop won't die from falling upwards. Since in this universe space is filled with air, Scroop won't suffocate, instead he will drift in the interplanetary emptiness until he dies of starvation or of dehydration.
*** [[DrivenToSuicide Unless he keeps a weapon on him like all those pirates seem to do.]]
* {{Dogfaces}}: Doppler.
* EmoTeen: Jim is, [[DisappearedDad rather understandably,]] pretty down in the beginning.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning[=/=]WhenThingsSpinScienceHappens: The map, and the core of Treasure Planet.
* ExactlyWhatIAimedAt: Even Dr. Doppler seems surprised that this is the case.
* ExplainExplainOhCrap: B.E.N, when he gets his missing piece back.
-->'''B.E.N''': It's all flooding back! All my memories! Right up until Flint pulled my memory circuit so I could never tell anybody about his '''booby trap'''!
--> [B.E.N makes a face, an explosion is heard]
-->'''B.E.N''': (Quietly) Speaking of which...
* {{Expy}}: Mr. Onyx in ''Battle at Procyon'' looks almost exactly like Mr. Arrow and even has the same attitude.
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: The eyes of one particular alien pirate ([[AllThereInTheManual according to the artbook]], his name is Mackriki) are ''in his throat''.
* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor: [[spoiler:Long John Silver.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: Turnbuckle, Amelia's helmsman.
* FacePalm: No less than three:
** A Double Facepalm when Jim and Silver give up protesting about having to work together.
** Doppler's FreudianSlip (see below).
** Jim also gives us one as B.E.N cheerfully leaves to disable the ''Legacy'''s laser cannons.
* FakeOutOpening: The movie begins with young Jim reading a book about pirates and treasure.
* FairyCompanion: Morph (though he/it is also a SmallAnnoyingCreature for some).
* FashionableAsymmetry:
** Silver's one cybernetic eye, arm and leg.
** Jim's gold earring.
* FreudianSlip: Oh lawd.
-->'''Amelia:''' Actually, Doctor, your astronomical advice was most helpful.\\
'''Doppler:''' Well, u-uh, thank you. Thank you very much. Well, I have a lot of help to offer, anatomically--amanamonically--as...astronomically. *{{Facepalm}}*
* FriendOrIdolDecision: Played with in that [[spoiler:it's the ''villain'' who has to make the choice. And he chooses the friend.]]
* FullNameUltimatum: Jim's mom gives one at the beginning of the movie. [[EmbarrassingMiddleName His middle name is]] "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleiades Pleiades]]"
* FullyDressedCartoonAnimal: Several humanoid characters including Captain Amelia and Dr. Delbert Doppler.
* FungusHumongous: Treasure Planet's aesthetic.
* FunnyRobot: BEN.
* FunWithSubtitles: For the Flatulent alien speech, the DVD subtitle track in English contains such highlights as [angry farting noises], [poit], and [eek! eek! eek! eek!]
* {{Gasshole}}: Doctor Doppler, who speaks Flatula--[[RuleOfFunny a LANGUAGE made up of farting noises]].
* GenderEqualsBreed: [[spoiler:The children of Captain Amelia and Delbert Doppler in the end]]. Though the spinoff games point towards BizarreSexualDimorphism. They were the same species.
* GentlemanSnarker: Captain Amelia's most endearing quality.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In chronological order:
** When the two cops ask Doppler whether or not he is Jim's father, Sarah frantically rejects such a notion, emphasizing that by throwing in a "Eww!" sound. The look Doppler's gives her in reply is ''priceless''.
** When Silver first meets Dr. Doppler, the cyborg scans the doctor with his laser eye. Doppler covers his groin with his hands when Silver scans down there.
** Amelia's mention of Silver's "spaceport floozies".
** There is just ''no'' way that Silver's jab about "[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Mr. Mop and Mrs. Bucket]]" was a coincidence.
-->'''Jim:''' I've got your "Mr. Mop."
** Delbert's FreudianSlip (see above).
** Also, when Amelia first looked at Doppler, look at his eyes. They're looking at her breasts!
* [[GonnaNeedMoreX Gonna Need a Bigger Ship]]: A pirate shouts this when Silver's group finds out that [[spoiler: there is way more treasure than their ship could possibly carry.]]
* GoodSamaritan: Jim to Bones.
* GravitySucks: Most of the deaths.
* HandshakeRefusal: Jim Hawkins does this to Long John Silver. At first, it's because he's a cyborg and he accidentally left his hand in knife mode. Then it's just a sign of distrust.
* [[spoiler: HappilyMarried: Doppler and Amelia in the end]].
* HardHead: Bones. Jim thinks he hit his head too hard, but his babbling does make sense.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: [[spoiler: Silver.]]
* HiveMind: The cyborg cops in the beginning show this trait from time to time.
* HiddenBadass: The bumbling, easily-flustered Dr. Doppler [[BadassBookworm shows off his badassery]], impressing more than a few people, most notably [[spoiler:Captain Amelia, his future wife.]]
* HoldYourHippogriffs
* HuskyRusskie: The Procyons in ''Battle at Procyon''.
* HyperspaceArsenal: In his [[MorphWeapon cybernetic]] [[SwissArmyAppendage arm]], Silver has about a dozen cooking tools, a pistol, a sword, a crutch, and a vice, as well as all the necessary gears and other cyborg guts. He also has an ArmCannon, but half of that appears to be strapped to his leg.
* ICanStillFight: [[spoiler:Captain Amelia]]. "Nonsense. Cup of tea and I'll be right as rain."
* IdiotBall: Yeah, Jim, go ahead and piss off the spider/scorpion/lobster thing with the obvious big evil yellow eyes. It's the weakness of a DeadpanSnarker.
* IgnoredConfession: "You have...''wonderful'' eyes." "[[{{Beat}} ...]]She's lost her ''mind''!"
* ImADoctorNotAPlaceholder: "Dang it, Jim. I'm an astronomer, not a doctor!"
** "[[HeroicBSOD Well I am a doctor in the sense that I have my doctorate, but-- but... GAH!]]"
* ImportedAlienPhlebotinum: The Star Map.
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure: The good captain's got what look like an 18-inch waist and 40-inch hips.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: ''Awesomely'' played straight, and even more awesomely ''lampshaded''. During their escape from the ship, Dr. Doppler screws up his eyes and fires a pistol ''for the first time in his life'' (well... for the first time on purpose, anyway)--and the shot hits a hatch, ends up [[ThrownOutTheAirlock tossing several pirates out into space]]. Amelia stares, wild-eyed in surprise. Dr. Doppler stares at his gun, every bit as surprised as she is.
-->'''Amelia:''' Did you actually ''aim'' for that?\\
'''Dr. Doppler:''' You know, actually, I ''did''.
** Doubles as a ChekhovsSkill, early in the movie we see his status as a physicist give him spatial/vector awareness required for making those sorts of calculations mentally.
* InexplicableTreasureChests: Explained for the most part.
* InHarmsWay: Jim has a bad case of it.
* InterfaceSpoiler: In ''Battle At Procyon'', the Skirmish factions easily reveal that [[spoiler: the ironclads are of Procyon origin]].
** Mission 9 may also result in this. When coming into visual range of the [[spoiler:ironclad refuelling barge]] in the nebula, your spotter has a chance of saying [[spoiler:"Procyon vessel sighted!"]]
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Jim and Long John Silver.
* InterspeciesRomance: Maybe. Given the GenderEqualsBreed facet mentioned above, it could be that [[spoiler:Dr. Doppler]] and [[spoiler:Captain Amelia]] are actually members of the same [[BizarreSexualDimorphism sexually dimorphic]] species. Silver is probably one as well, albeit one that's rather [[LargeAndInCharge big]].
** The PC game ''Battle at Procyon'' offers more evidence for this, as you can have a number of dog and cat people join your crew. All the males are canine, while the females are all feline.
* IronicEcho: "All my life I've dreamed of an adventure like this."
* JailBait: Even the babysitters say, "Jim's hot for a cartoon." More of a harmless fandom running joke; Jim seems to appeal to some 17 - 26 year old devotees who still adore him in spite of the fifteen year old age range, and he's the subject of every Disney crossover involving an older woman, raunchily or not.
* {{Jerkass}}: Leland Hawkins. Leaving his wife and child behind and never even bother to write to them. He definitely qualifies.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: John Silver.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Delbert has been waiting for an adventure like this to happen all his life.
-->'''Delbert:''' I really really really ''REALLY'' want to go.
* JustInTime: The escape from Treasure Planet.
* KarmaHoudini: Silver may be a much better person by the end, but he still gets away with theft, mutiny and a ''lot'' of child endangerment.
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler: Scroop, who meets his end in a nearly identical fashion to the way he sent Mr. Arrow to his own demise.]]
* KubrickStare: Both Jim and Silver have their fair share of this throughout the film.
* LargeAndInCharge: While Silver isn't exactly the ''biggest'' of the pirates (Mr. Hands is bigger still), he's bigger and stronger than most of them. Especially clear when he ''brutally'' manhandles Mr. Scroop.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Several. Jim has a very prominent one, as well as Silver - or, particularly, Silver's good side.
* LegendOfChekhov: His mother assures Jim that Treasure Planet is just a legend.
* LethalChef: B.E.N. tries to serve Amelia and Delbert "drinks" that appear to consist of machine fluids, although that's more the old "robots drink motor oil" gag coupled with a robot who hasn't had any contact with carbon-based lifeforms in over a century. Apparently, he gets better once he starts working at the new Benbow Inn in the finale.
* LikeASonToMe: John Silver's relationship with Jim, especially at the end, definitely invokes this trope along some ParentalSubstitute.
* LimitedWardrobe: Apparently no one aboard the ''Legacy'' bothered to take an extra change of clothing for the voyage. Except for Silver, who changed his pants halfway through (because the stripes were too time consuming to draw)
** Justified in the case of Amelia and Arrow, as they are both in uniform.
* LivingMacGuffin: Only Jim can read the star-map.
* LogoJoke: The second trailer has the {{Disney}} star streak morph into [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYFA4v6dXpU the spaceport.]]
* LostTechnology: Any [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean mother's son calling himself a troper]] can recognize this one, even if it's only hinted at remotely: The Treasure Planet, the map, and [[spoiler:the portal]] are on a whole different level from anything else in the film, and promotional material makes reference to some ''really'' smart aliens having built them. Supposedly Flint stumbled upon them and had a really profitable idea.
* LoveableRogue: Silver.
* {{Lzherusskie}}: One of the gunners.
-->''We are wanting to move!''
* MadOracle: The hermit robot, B.E.N., is a bit scatterbrained from being marooned on a desert island... Er, planet. Literally having lost his "mind" helps too. [[spoiler:Although is not so much as lost, as Flint "holding onto it" for him.]]
* MalevolentArchitecture: [[spoiler:Flint's trove explodes, taking Treasure Planet with it.]]
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: [[spoiler: Of Amelia and Delbert's children, they have three daughters and one son.]]
* MatchCut: The "I'm Still here" sequence has many of these.
* MeaningfulEcho:
-->'''Silver:''' ''Morph, I have a job for you. Keep an eye on this here pup.''\\
And\\
'''Jim:''' ''Yeah, but I'm gonna change all that.''
* MeaningfulName: Mr. Hands has four hands.
* AMinorKidroduction: We see three year old Jim and his pop-up book before jumping twelve years later and getting on with the plot.
* [[MissingTrailerScene Missing Trailer Dialogue]]: From the theatrical trailer:
--> '''Silver:''' You think a pup like you can take on the likes of me?!
--> '''Jim:''' Watch me!
* MistakenIdentity: Dr. Doppler mistakenly, but understandably, assumes that [[TheBigGuy Mr. Arrow]] is the captain of the RLS Legacy.
* MrFanservice: Jim Hawkins, evidently backed by the strong flow of fangirls. Though why else would Jim have flippy hair, have so many action scenes ''and'' [[spoiler:[[SheCleansUpNicely wear a military uniform at the end]]]]?
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Mr. Hands.
* MyLifeFlashedBeforeMyEyes:
--> '''B.E.N.:''' Jimmy, I--I don't know about you, but I'm starting to see my life pass in front of my eyes. At least, I think it's my life. WAS I EVER DANCING WITH AN ANDROID NAMED LUPE?!
* MythologyGag: When the pirate crew accuses Silver of having a soft spot for Jim, Silver excuses himself by claiming he's only trying to avoid suspicion by cozying up to him. While this isn't true for the film's Silver, it perfectly describes Long John Silver from the original novel.
* NeverTrustATitle: No part of ''Battle at Procyon'' actually takes place at Procyon, not even the skirmish maps in Procyon territory. It's lampshaded in the credits.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Doppler hires all the movie's antagonists in one pirate crew.
* NoIndoorVoice: B.E.N. It nearly gets Jim and company killed a few times.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: B.E.N has this in spades, much to the annoyance of Jim.
* TheNotLoveInterest: Jim and Silver's developing father-son relationship is by far and away the most important arc in the movie.
* NotThatKindOfDoctor: TropeNamer. Dr. Doppler seems to know basic first aid, but he's useless beyond that, and he knows it.
** This is also a [[ShoutOut shout-out]] to Franchise/StarTrek's Doctor [=McCoy=]: "Dang it, Jim. I'm an astronomer, not a doctor!"
* ObviouslyEvil: Scroop. Also, Captain Flint from the introduction story.
* OhCrap: Ben gets one of these moments when he goes to disable the laser cannons.
-->'''Ben:''' Disable a few laser cannons, what is the big deal? All we gotta do is [[TemptingFate find that one little wire...]]\\
''[Ben opens some electrical doors, revealing a mess of wires]'' \\
'''Ben:''' Oh mama!
** Meltdown (the fat pirate) also fits this trope:
-->'''Doppler:''' Excuse me, brutish pirate.\\
'''Meltdown:''' ''[Belches]''\\
'''Doppler:''' Yes, you. I have a question. Is it that your body is too massive for your teeny-tiny head... or is it that your head is too teeny-tiny for your big, fat body?!\\
'''Meltdown:''' ''[Grabs Doppler]'' I PUMMEL YOU GOOD!\\
'''Doppler:''' Yes, I'm sure you will, but before you do, I have one more question! ''[pulls out a gun and points it at pirate]'' Is this yours?\\
'''Meltdown:''' ''[Stares at the gun in shock]'' Uhhhhhh....
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Silver, toward the end. He ''always'' tried to sweet talk TheCaptain. Then...
* OutrunTheFireball: Two examples:
** The black hole sequence, where they actually ''use the fireball itself'' to give them enough power to outrun it.
*** This is pure RuleOfCool; if anyone actually tried that at that distance, they would first die from radiation burns, then be vaporized by the heat. When the red 'mist' starts wafting around the ship is the worst moment; that 'mist' is plasma.
** The climax, where they [[spoiler:sail through the portal and to Montressor spaceport ''just'' ahead of Treasure Planet exploding behind them.]]
* PapaWolf: John Silver. He becomes fiercely protective of Jim and essentially gives up everything, including his life's dream, for him in the end.
* ParentalAbandonment: The only song in the movie is about Parental Abandonment. In fact, Disney said they specifically geared the film to single-parent households. Appropriate since it is Jim's motivation for befriending Silver.
* ParentalSubstitute: Silver is a mentor and father-figure to Jim. Considering how the story goes, is one of the more turbulent examples, but [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming it all worked out in the most satisfying way possible.]]
* PettingZooPeople: Most of the cast!
* PirateBooty: Of course!
* PirateParrot: Morph is an [[RecycledINSPACE IN SPACE]] example, imitating form as well as speech.
* PlanetOfHats: The DVD extras reveal that Montressor is a "mining planet". There is a mining operation which Jim flies through early in the film, but otherwise this isn't elaborated on.
* [[spoiler:PortalNetwork]]
* {{Precursors}}: [[spoiler:Built]] Treasure Planet and the star-map, according to the [[AllThereInTheManual supplemental material]].
* PunctuatedForEmphasis:
** Silver ([[spoiler:cycling through Flint's portal]]): "WHERE'S. THAT. BLASTED. ''TREASURE''?!"
** Silver strikes again with: "Change in plan, lads! [[FaceHeelTurn We! Move!]] '''[[FaceHeelTurn Now!]]'''"
* PuppyDogEyes:
-->"Oh, can those eyes get any bigger?"
* [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens Really Smart Aliens]]: [[spoiler:The architects of the whole Treasure Planet shebang, and the portal.]]
* RecycledINSPACE: ''Literature/TreasureIsland'' [-IN SPACE-]!... [-WITH [[FurryFandom FURRIES]]-]!
** Apparently, the working title for the movie was even [[LampshadeHanging "Treasure Island in Space"]].
*** The Chinese title of the movie translates into what can best be described as "The Star Island of Silver," ("星银岛") which is a pun on the standard Chinese translation of the novel's title, i.e. "The Island of Gold and Silver" ("金银岛"). The first two characters of either of them rhyme.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Silver's cybernetic eye turns red during his... less friendly moments ([[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor not necessarily correlated with which side he's on at the time]]). Normally, it's gold.
* RiddleForTheAges: Just who built Treasure Planet, and where did they go?
** The artbook, [[http://www.amazon.ca/Treasure-Planet-Discovery-Jeff-Kurtti/dp/0786853662 A Voyage of Discovery]], explains that Treasure Planet was actually built by an ancient race called the [[{{Precursors}} Forefathers]] who used the portal to learn more about other alien cultures. They eventually disappeared and left the entire planet behind.
* TheRightHandOfDoom: John Silver's cybernetic right hand, with a robotic peg leg.
* RuleOfCool: More or less everything.
** SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale
** SpaceDoesNotWorkThatWay
* SailorsPonytail: Jim sports one.
* SameSexTriplets: [[spoiler: The daughters of Delbert and Amelia. Thankfully, they can be distinguished by their individual hair color]].
* SceneryPorn: Really, does [[http://images.epilogue.net/users/vacher/TreasurePl.7.jpg this]] [[http://data.whicdn.com/images/2411029/treasure-planet-11_large.jpg one]] need to be explained?
* SchizoTech: It combines 19th-century sailing technology, with technology that appears to have been made centuries into the future.
* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: [[RuleOfCool But we don't really care, do we?]]
* ScreenShake: Happens when Silver screams "'''[[BigWordShout NOW!!!]]'''" at Morph after ordering Morph, who is hovering uncertainly beside Jim, to come.
* SelfDestructMechanism: Played so straight, as with [[StatusQuoIsGod any story involving]] a forgotten treasure trove.
* SerendipityWritesThePlot: They mention in the {{DVD Commentary}} that they decided to kill off the pirates that were hardest to animate as early as possible.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Amelia, Dr. Doppler, and even Silver both provide quite a bit of this.
* SexyDiscretionShot: Surprisingly, for a Disney movie. Amelia has a broken rib, and Dr. Dopper says "Let me take a look at that." The camera pans away.
** Another reason is to avoid showing the nature of Amelia's injury.
* ShooOutTheClowns: Every time the movie takes a dramatic or serious turn, Morph disappears. Not B.E.N., but that's because he's plot important.
* SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer: Though he's not completely absent from the trailers, it's pretty clear from the promotional material that Doppler must have been considered the least marketable character. Perhaps most tellingly, the VHS and DVD cover used the same poster as shown above on this page, except edited to remove Doppler and replace him with Silver (and put a very goofy an uncharacteristic smile on Amelia's face). Note that Silver already ''is'' on the original poster, just farther in the background and not in the main group of heroes - his place was taken by Scroop on the edited poster.
* SkySurfing: Jim's favorite high-adrenaline hobby.
* SlippedTheRopes: Done hilariously with Dr. Doppler. Turns out, he has abnormally thin wrists.
* SmallAnnoyingCreature: Morph.
* TheSociopath: Scroop is one who's portrayed disturbingly realistic.
* SpaceIsAnOcean: And everything that goes with it:
** SpacePirates: Naturally.
** SpaceSailing
** {{Space Whale}}s
*** ''Battle at Procyon'' gives us floating islands as well, often with actual planets in the background.
* SpitTake: Inverted by Silver when Arrow tells him that Jim will be working with him.
* SpotOfTea: Amelia, [[BritishAccents Of Course.]]
* StealthHiBye: Silver is surprisingly good at this.
* StealthPun: Dr. Doppler is a ''dog''-like alien. The meal Sarah serves him in his first scene at the Benbow Inn looks like dog food and is served in what looks like a dog dish, but even the name follows this theme: '''Alpo'''nian chowder.
** Also Morph as a substitute for the traditional pirate's parrot. He's a '''poly'''morph.
* SteamPunk: Oodles of it. The overall aesthetic style, along with SpaceIsAnOcean. Mixed in a very interesting way with CyberPunk.
* StiffUpperLip: The Captain.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Sarah is the older, female version of her teen son, Jim Hawkins.
** [[spoiler: And for the children of Delbert and Amelia: The girls (despite each having a different hair color) are a spitting image of their mother, especially the one with Amelia's hair color. And their son is an exact replica of his father.]]
* SwissArmyAppendage: John Silver's bionic arm.
* TakeMyHand: [[spoiler:Silver]] to Jim in the climax.
* TakeThat: As Dr. Delbert Doppler begins to freak out over Captain Amelia's [[spoiler: worsening condition in the aftermath of escaping the ship after the pirates take it over]], he goes on a rant that he's not an actual doctor, claiming that having a Doctorate is useless when it comes to actually helping people.
* TeensAreShort: Jim is fifteen, but he can't be more than 5-and-a-half feet tall; he's even shorter than his mother. [[JustifiedTrope Granted]], his shortness makes Silver's and Mr. Arrow's downright hugeness stand out more, as well as making Scroop and the larger aliens appear more menacing by comparison. It even accentuates Capt. Amelia's statuesque height.
** If you watch the reunion scene closely, you can see that Jim's actually as tall as his mother, and later at the inn's reopening, Jim's grown taller. Obviously, he was just waiting for a growth spurt.
* ThatsNoMoon: [[spoiler:Treasure Planet turns out to be a giant artificial construct, with Flint's trove hidden in the core, and the whole planet was rigged to explode should anyone try to take it.]]
** There's also the spaceport, which was intentionally built to resemble a crescent moon from a distance.
* ThinkNothingOfIt: After Jim prompts the robot cop about the precise offense.
* ThighHighBoots: Captain Amelia.
* {{Timeskip}}: About 12 years after the DistantPrologue, and another one (probably less than two years) for the epilogue.
* TokenHuman: Jim, as the AudienceSurrogate.
* TrailersAlwaysLie: For a guy who doesn't even appear until somewhere during the last half of the movie, the trailers sure did love B.E.N.
* TreasureMap: A holographic one.
* TroubledButCute: Jim. Hawkins. Fangirl reactions defined this Trope for you without saying.
* WeldTheLock: Captain Amelia welds the hatch to prevent the pirates from getting in.
* WhatMeasureIsANonCute: So, Amelia is a CatFolk, Doppler is a Dog Man, John Silver looks like some kind of shaved bear, Morph is a Squishy Pink Thing, and Scroop is a Spider-Scorpion. Guess who the bad one is!
** Subverted in that the rather ugly [[spoiler:Silver [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor turns like a weathervane]].]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Quite a few of Silver's crew members just disappear without explanation throughout the movie. We see several of them being killed both in the fights with Jim and his friends and [[spoiler:during the destruction of the planet]]. At the end of the movie we see less than ten surviving crew members tied up in the ship's hold, despite the fact than not nearly that many had been shown dying. The farting alien is notably last seen sleeping and snoring loudly in the bunk above Jim and takes no part in any of the ensuing action sequences.
* WhatSongWasThisAgain: The French version of "I'm Still Here" is translated to "Un Homme Libre" (A Free Man) and becomes less of a song about a boy telling off the universe and something more like 'if you feel like a reject, maybe you should run away'.
* WoodenShipsAndIronMen: To a degree. It's been somewhat Disneyfied, but the pirates themselves evoke this trope. Quite literally in Silver's case.
* XMeetsY: ''{{Spelljammer}}'' meets ''TreasureIsland''.
* YankTheDogsChain: [[spoiler:So Silver's got the treasure that he's spent a good chunk of his life searching for, and given up an arm, leg, and eye for. A few kabooms later pretty much all of it's gone]]. ''Ouch.''
-->[[spoiler:'''Silver:''' Just a lifelong obsession, Jim. I'll get over it.]]
** Earlier, while hiding in a barrel, Jim overhears Silver disavow his previous encouraging speech about Jim having "the makings of greatness in you" to the other pirates. The look on the Jim's face is clearly resigned disappointment; he's had this kind of thing happen before.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Jim, at first take, looks a bit older than "fifteen" despite the shortness.
* {{Zeerust}}: Invoked. Space is filled with [[ScienceMarchesOn luminiferous aether]] capable of propelling any vehicle Baron Munchausen might've dreamed up. So long as it looks piratey.
