* AngstWhatAngst: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] [[spoiler:by Silver when he throws away the treasure to save Jim.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Jim''': "Silver! You gave up--!"]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Silver''': "Just a lifelong obsession, Jim. I'll get over it."]]
* BaseBreaker: B.E.N. People will either find him hilarious or just annoying.
* CrossoverShip: Amelia with [[Disney/{{Tarzan}} Jane Porter]].
** Jim with a lot of different characters.
* CultClassic: Considered by fans to be a forgotten Disney classic.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Captain Amelia, partially due to being the major [[TheSmurfettePrinciple Token Chick]] in the film, considering that there was a severe lack of female characters in the original Robert Louis Stevenson novel, mostly because she's a {{Badass}}, snarky, LadyOfWar.
* {{Fanon}}: Fanfic writers have given Captain Amelia the surname Smollett after the captain from the original story.
* ItWasHisSled: It's ''Treasure Island''--a story that most everybody knows by heart, regardless of whether they've actually read the book. The film does add its own twists and ideas here and there, but don't expect any ''major'' surprises.
* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Jim has been paired with every Disney girl ever (particularly [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]]), extending to non-Disney girls like [[TheSwanPrincess Odette]] and even anime girls like ''Anime/SailorMoon'' and Anime/PrincessTutu. Ironically he is a CelibateHero in the movie.
** He is also shipped a lot with Silver, and on the crossover slashy side, [[WesternAnimation/SinbadLegendOfTheSevenSeas Sinbad]], [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Aladdin]] or [[WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}} Dimitri]] are popularly shipped with him. Let's just say for a film featuring one of Disney's (Renaissance-onward) rare celibate heroes, the fans really like the idea of him find more adventures out there...
* MoralEventHorizon: We get the idea that Scroop is a nasty guy, but then he proves it even more by [[spoiler:gleefully sending Mr. Arrow to his death via black hole (ironically, black holes are the trope namer) only to turn around and place the blame entirely on Jim. In the end, Jim sends him [[KarmicDeath tumbling into space in a similar manner]]]].
-->[[spoiler:'''Scroop''': "Do say hello to Mr. Arrow for me."]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Jim''': "Tell him yourself!"]]
* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: The PC RTS, Battle At Procyon, taking place five years after the movie, with a storyline based around Jim raising through the ranks of the Royal Navy.
** In addition, the game of the movie was considered pretty good in general.
* SpiritualLicensee: This is as close as we'll ever come to a ''{{Spelljammer}}'' movie. Or an ''[[Literature/TheEdgeChronicles Edge Chronicles]]'' movie, for that matter.
* UglyCute: Morph's basically a wrinklier floating [[{{Franchise/Pokemon}} Ditto]], but you can't help but go "Awww!" whenever you see him.
* UncannyValley: [[http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Mr._Arrow/Gallery Mr. Arrow]].
* VindicatedByCable: When released, Treasure Planet found itself overshadowed at the Box Office by ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets.'' It ended up being a colossal flop that ended up [[GenreKiller turning Disney off of traditional animation.]] Several years later, seperated from being overshadowed by Harry Potter, Treasure Planet finally found it's audience on cable.
* TheWoobie: Jim could easily fall into woobie status, given his DisappearedDad, stressful home life, and the unbelievable amount of abuse he receives from pretty much every character except Delbert and B.E.N.
