* 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."]]
* AwesomeMusic: "I'm Still Here" and "Always Know Where You Are". Provided by [[Music/TheGooGooDolls John Rzeznik]].
** James Newton Howard delivers a gorgeous soundtrack as well. Particular mention goes to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpuMidhxBl4 "The Launch"]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUdnW6BDj44 "Jim Saves The Crew"]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDv2CzEI1N8 "Silver Leaves"]].
* 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.
* EstrogenBrigade: Jim himself has perhaps one of biggest collection of fangirls out of all the Disney human males. The fact he is voice by a now big time celebrity JosephGordon-Levitt, his character design, his TroubledButCute personality, the fact that he is one of the rare handsome Disney heroes that remains single, his smarts and action scenes are all factors to this, even with the fact that [[{{Jailbait}} he's 15 years old]].
* {{Fanon}}: Fanfic writers have given Captain Amelia the surname Smollett after the captain from the original story.
* FetishFuel: Captain Amelia is extremely popular with the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom.
* 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 finding more adventures out there...
* MemeticMutation: The animation frame of Jim turning to Morph. ''[[http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/232/a/4/jim_hawkins_motivational_10_by_23jk-d478gdq.jpg You know the one.]]''
* 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, 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!"]]
* SpiritualLicensee: This is as close as we'll ever come to a ''TabletopGame/{{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]].
* 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.
** [[BreakTheCutie Morph]] resembles a kicked puppy when Silver tells Jim that he cares just about the treasure.
