!Original Movie Characters


->"''You're only in trouble if you get caught!"''

->'''Voiced by:''' Scott Weinger
An orphan grown to maturity on the streets of Agrabah, the homeless Aladdin has little to focus on in life beyond surviving day to day, dreaming of the comfort and safety that would be his were he to somehow become rich. Despite this hostile life, he retains a pure heart and a generous soul, making him a "diamond in the rough". For this, Jafar manipulates him into retrieving the Lamp of the Genie from the Cave of Wonders, but fails to claim it himself. Instead, with the Genie's help, Aladdin eventually defeats the evil vizier and becomes affianced to the love of his life, Princess Jasmine. Many further adventures follow, culminating with the crashing of his wedding by the legendary Forty Thieves, but finally Aladdin and Jasmine are wed.

* AntiHero: Earlier on due to growing up as a criminal, he's quite deceitful. [[CharacterDevelopment He got over it after the second movie.]]
* ArbitrarySkepticism: In "The Ethereal," he dismisses Jasmine's visions of the titular antagonist as being AllJustADream. However, upon seeing the events of the dream that Jasmine described come true one by one, he's soon convinced.
* {{Badass}}: His signature song shows him easily evading the guards.
* BadassNormal: This is a guy who goes up against magical beings, sorcerers, and giant robots, and somehow finds a way to come out on top every time.
* BatmanGambit: Showcased in the first movie. His plan to defeat Jafar banked on exploiting the man's ego.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's a NiceGuy through and through, but you do ''not'' want to make him angry. In the first film, when [[PrinceCharmless Prince Achmed]] badmouths him, Aladdin is ''only'' stopped from physically attacking him because the palace gates slammed shut behind him.
* BoundAndGagged: And submerged underwater to drown, until Genie saves him.
* ABoyAndHisX: A Man and His Monkey. This is his relationship with his monkey Abu.
* CharacterDevelopment: By the final film, he's really grown into a man worthy of being Sultan.
** This is best seen in ''King of Thieves''. After breaking his father out of prison, Aladdin returns to face any punishment he might receive, because he realized how much his running away would affect Jasmine due to his own father's abandonment of his family. Aladdin has learned that his actions affect other people, a lesson some people would say more rulers need to learn.
* CharacterTics: Aladdin rubs the back of his head when he's embarrassed, raises a single eyebrow when he's interested, and wiggles his eyebrows when he says something suggestive or has more than one meaning.
* ChasteHero: Although he's engaged to Jasmine and thusly spends a lot of time at the palace he still seems to live in the abandoned building from the first movie.
* ChickMagnet: He effectively rivals ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' for his talent with this.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Especially in the animated show, where characters, often Iago, [[BatmanGambit are able to use the knowledge that he'll always help people in need to get him to go along with things]].
* ConsummateLiar: Being a GuileHero StreetUrchin, it's part of the trade, but at the same time it's treated as a serious character flaw. Aladdin grows out of it before it becomes an actual FatalFlaw.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Explored in the television series. He grew up an orphan after his father left the family on a treasure hunt and never came home and his mother died some time afterwards, forcing him to raise himself on the streets as a thief. [[spoiler:He later finds out that his dad is the leader of the infamous "40 Thieves."]]
* DeadpanSnarker: To some extent, though not as frequently as say, Iago. "Better check your crystal ball again, Jafar!"
* {{Determinator}}:
-->'''Jafar:''' ''[[WhyWontYouDie How many times do I have to kill you, boy?!]]''
* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: Twice at least. One of them by conning them into ''becoming'' a Cthulhu... who is constrained by itty bitty living space.
* DistressedDude: At one point in the first movie, he's thrown into the ocean by Jafar's guards, and would have drowned if not for the Genie.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Even after the Prince Ali charade is over, we see him wear shoes to select events such as his wedding and a few times in the TV show. However, he seems to prefer going barefoot 99 percent of the time.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: His opening musical number, in which he [[LovableRogue easily dodges the city guard who are after him for stealing a loaf of bread while singing about how he needs it to live]], which is immediately followed by him giving said bread to a pair of young children without a second thought.
* ExposedToTheElements: When Jafar banishes him to the ends of the Earth, aka a frozen tundra, he walks about there in only his vest and pants combo with no shoes, and survives long enough to track down Carpet and get back to Agrabah.
* FriendToAllChildren: He's proven this countless times.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: He's the only one of the thieves in [[WholeEpisodeFlashback "Seems Like Old Crimes, Part 1"]] to treat Abu kindly.
* GuileHero: He's a roguish street rat who gets by via theft and charm and uses cunning and trickery to best most conflicts, but we never doubt he's the good guy.
* TheHero: The main character of the franchise.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Thanks to his past as a street rat.
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: He justified his stealing by only taking whatever he needed and nothing more. On one occasion where he did take more than he needed, he was devastated to see how much he hurt someone and returned the money.
* IdiotHero: Even though he's also a GuileHero, Aladdin is prone to foolish choices: He goes about his life carelessly while making the most moronic decisions, spare for a few moments of flash in the pan brilliance when his or somebody else's life depends on it. It's particularly noticeable when you realize how most of the other characters, save for Jasmine, spend their time trying to steer him to a correct choice. Still, his idiocy seems not to extend too far beyond what's needed for the Aesop of the week.
** And his moronic behavior goes through stages, as well: in the first movie, it's due to his horrifically low self esteem telling him that lying about himself will make people like him, even when it's obvious that Jasmine loves him for who he is. In the show, it shifts to either overconfidence or his [[ChronicHeroSyndrome chronic inability to pass by a problem and not try to solve it]].
* IndyPloy: He is truly "one jump" ahead of his opponents; ''exactly one jump''.
* InsecureLoveInterest: He doesn't believe Jasmine could ever love the real him and disguises himself as a Prince to become worthy of her.
* JustifiedCriminal: As established from the very beginning, Aladdin only steals food to survive. Of course, he gets NoSympathy from the various merchants and the palace guard for it.
-->'''Aladdin''': Gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat. [[DeadpanSnarker Tell you all about it when I've got the time.]]
* JustLikeRobinHood: How often does he actually keep anything he steals for himself? Only a jeweled flower to earn bonus points with his girlfriend.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Often accompanied by "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVn8vz2wIGw&feature=related One Jump Ahead Reprise]]"
* LosingYourHead: In one episode ("Heads, You Lose") along with Caliph Kapok. Thankfully, Al gets better. By the way, we saw him get nearly decapitated before in ''The Return of Jafar''. In the first film, Jafar lied to Jasmine that he had him beheaded as punishment for kidnapping her.
* LovableRogue: As a thief and a trickster (at least initially), but a sympathetic one you can root for.
* LoveAtFirstSight: He fell in love with Jasmine instantly after seeing her for the first time.
* MissingMom: Her fate is never revealed, but evidently she vanished from his life at some point, with the intimation that she died. Originally, she was to be a character in the first film.
* MrFanservice: Reportedly, he was redesigned during development because originally he was deemed not attractive ''enough''.
* MustMakeAmends: After Aladdin [[spoiler:left behind the genie lamp, which led to Iago bringing it to Jafar, then Jafar using it to wish himself to be sultan and the world's most powerful sorcerer]].
-->"''I made a mess of everything; somehow I gotta go back and set things right.''"
* NeverBareheaded: It's rare to see him without a hat.
* NiceGuy: Aladdin might be a thief and TheTrickster, but there is no doubt whatsoever about his decency and sense of morality. In fact, "The Diamond In The Rough" line is essentially a perfect measure about his decency.
* NiceHat: A red fez.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: He didn't wish the Genie free when he had the chance and left it behind to go talk to Jasmine, giving Iago the opportunity to swipe the lamp and hand it over to Jafar. He even acknowledges that he blew it. Then again, he does fix his mistakes.
* NoSocialSkills: A mild case, again due to his having grown up on the streets, he often doesn't fit in at the palace. Although he does have a sort of common man's wisdom that impresses the Sultan enough to want to make him his royal advisor.
* NobodyCallsMeChicken: Interestingly, he was originally based on the {{Trope Namer|s}}, [[Franchise/BackToTheFuture Marty McFly]], before being redesigned.
* OfficialCouple: With Jasmine. They're engaged by the end of the first movie and married by the end of the third.
* ParentalAbandonment: His mother is heavily implied to be dead, and his father left to seek out a fabulous treasure, [[spoiler: eventually becoming the leader of the feared Forty Thieves, the most dreaded of all bandits in the land]].
* PragmaticHero: As a thief, a {{t|heTrickster}}rickster, and a habitual liar, Aladdin may very well be one of the most morally ambiguous Disney protagonists yet. Every bad deed he committed was only for survival rather than out of malice.
* ProtagonistTitle: First "Aladdin" and then "Aladdin and the X".
* RagsToRoyalty: From a street rat to a prince.
* RedIsHeroic: His trademark red hat and he's the hero.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Mozenrath's blue. Mozenrath is a lot more cold-blooded and calculating, whereas Aladdin has a more impulsive and improvosing nature.
* StreetSmart: By necessity. "Gotta eat to live"
* TookALevelInJerkass: A downplayed example in the TV series, as a lot of episodes saw Aladdin act more smug than he did in the films, but his positive and noble attributes remained overall intact.
* TurnOutLikeHisFather: Luckily, [[spoiler:it doesn't go that far.]]
* WaistcoatOfStyle: Subverted, as it's rather plain and simple.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Apparently, he couldn't afford buttons for his vest. Or a shirt. Or [[BarbieDollAnatomy nipples]].
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: It turns out that Aladdin is terrified of Unkbut, which are giant spiders that live underground. He eventually conquers this fear later on.

[[folder:The Genie]]
->''"Master! I don't think you quite realize what you've got here. So why don't you just ruminate...whilst I illuminate the possibilities!"''

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RobinWilliams[=/=]Creator/DanCastellaneta[=/=]Creator/JimMeskimen
A powerful magical being who has been sealed away inside a lamp for ten thousand years or more, the Genie is the anchor point around which the first movie turns. Granted his freedom by a grateful Aladdin, he returns to be by Aladdin's side out of gratitude to the one master who has ever shown him kindness.

* AbnormalLimbRotationRange: A rare example where it also falls under LosingYourHead. He's quite capable of pulling off his limbs and/or head to rotate them.
* AngelFaceDemonFace: He starts the movie as a playful, googly, shape shifting whack job. But when his lamp came into the possession of Jafar, his coloration and body shape changed to the "evil Djinn" stylistic (Only temporarily, because this is a Disney movie, and the Genie had to be recognizable for marketing purposes.)
-->"Sorry kid, I got a new master, now."
* BadassBeard: He has a curly black beard and is obviously very powerful
* BalefulPolymorph: He can morph into all kinds of things, including Steamboat Willie.
* BenevolentGenie: When Aladdin wished to be a prince, Genie could have just given him a certificate or something. Instead, he got new fancy clothes, a parade, a full musical number, and a grand entrance to impress the princess. [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} It's a wonder he didn't make him, you know,]] Music/{{Prince}}.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Yeah, he's a goofball. He also has more magic than most human sorcerers can hope to amass even as a free genie, has quite a temper, has a protective streak, and, oh yeah, its implied he isn't bound by that no-killing rule anymore. There's a reason the threat of his rage can singlehandedly quash a raging battle between two opposing sides.
* TheBigGuy: While he can become any size he wants, his "default" size is larger than any other character.
* BoisterousBruiser: Very fun-loving and energetic.
* BreakoutCharacter: Easily one of the most recognizable characters of Disney, thanks to his first VA.
* BroughtDownToBadass: He loses a lot of his phenomenal cosmic powers after being set free. He still has a ''lot'' of magical abilities left to him and often proves essential in solving whatever disaster is plaguing Agrabah.
* BroughtDownToNormal: In one episode of the TV series, he gives his powers to Iago to show him how hard it is to be a genie.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: His craziness is somewhat justified as a result from spending centuries trapped in his lamp.
* CombatMedic: He can heal and fight.
* DeadpanSnarker: When played by Creator/RobinWilliams.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep[=/=]NoNameGiven: He's just "the Genie."
* {{Flanderization}}: An odd case of this being due to different actors. Williams' Genie is a screwball, but also has a sensitive and reasonable side, sometimes acting as a sort of father figure to Aladdin (particularly in King of Thieves). When Castellaneta plays him, this almost completely vanishes, and his hyperactive goofiness is played up much more.
* ForgotAboutHisPowers: In the series, and the sequel films, although this is actually justified as a case of BroughtDownToBadass: as stated early in ''Return of Jafar'', whilst being set free did remove him of the restrictions he was under as a Genie of the Lamp, it also stole away a significant amount of his power, leaving him with "semi-phenomenal, nearly cosmic" magic, reducing him to about the level of a particularly talented magician. This fact is reiterated several times in the series. On a meta-level, this keeps him from utterly annihilating all attempts to induce drama or coherent plots to the series.
* FourFingeredHands: Proof that he isn't human.
* FourthWallObserver: The Genie's supernatural abilities permit him to break the fourth wall, as well as parody real-life people and popular culture completely outside of the boundaries of the fictional universe in which he is contained.
* FunPersonified
* GenieInABottle: Until the end of the first film, which comes with a nerf in his powers.
* TheGenieKnowsJackNicholson: {{Trope Namer|s}}.
* [[ADogNamedDog A Genie Named Genie]]: Though he may have forgotten his real name due to 10,000 years of imprisonment.
* GeniusDitz: He's goofy and scatterbrained but he also has wise, reasonable side, he's ''very'' savvy, and is one of the most powerful characters in the Disney universe.
* GentleGiant: Much bigger than the other characters, and very nice and compassionate.
* GreatGazoo: Comes with being a genie.
* JawDrop: Provides the page image!
%%* LargeHam:
* LetsGetDangerous: Especially against Jafar in the second movie. When the Genie is free to unleash his power, he can actually get pretty scary.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJgo_fk0Lgw To Be Free]]" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yzBM4QBA4M theme]]. In his more humorous moments he's also accompanied by the refrain from "Friend Like Me."
* ManOfAThousandVoices: When voiced by the Swedish Dan Ekborg.
* MesACrowd: Can create numerous copies of himself in an instant.
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Despite being a good guy, he has no choice but to follow the orders of the one who holds his lamp.
* TheNicknamer: He gives the nickname "Rug Man" to the magic carpet. He also calls Aladdin "Al".
* OurGeniesAreDifferent: For the most part, Genie was consistent with how the 20th century Western world viewed genies, although he had a few new twists. He was one of the first genies to want to be set free, and the first genie that could not kill.
* PluckyComicRelief: Despite being a very important character, the Genie serves as a comic relief element in each of his appearances.
* RealityWarper: He has PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS that are certainly far beyond that of any human sorcerer, but he does explicitly state three limitations to them: he cannot kill (directly), make someone fall in love, or bring the dead back to life (though he implies that he ''can'' bring people BackFromTheDead... but he won''t: CameBackWrong is implied.)
* RealMenWearPink: On his date with Eden.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Carpet's blue. He's energetic and boisterous, while Carpet is TheQuietOne.
* RuleOfThree: Besides the ThreeWishes, he also has three exceptions as follows:
** He [[ThouShaltNotKill can't kill anyone]]. (So don't ask.)
** He can't [[LivingAphrodisiac make anyone fall]] [[LovePotion in]] {{love|IsInTheAir}}.
** He can't bring anyone BackFromTheDead. (It's not a pretty picture, HE DOESN'T LIKE DOING IT!)
* SealedGoodInACan: He was stuck in his lamp in the Cave of Wonders for ten thousand years before Aladdin found him.
* ShipperOnDeck: Pro Aladdin/Jasmine, to the point where he is willing to give up his freedom to see them together:
-->'''Genie:''' Al, no problem. You've still got one wish left. Just say the word and you're a prince again.
-->'''Aladdin:''' But Genie, what about your freedom?
-->'''Genie:''' Hey, it's only an eternity of servitude. This is love. Al, you're not gonna find another girl like her in a million years. Believe me, I know. I've looked.
* StoryBreakerPower: PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS and a free genie would make story conflict difficult. Because of this, his powers were nerfed upon being freed from the lamp. In the series as well, there was often someone who could match him (like another genie) or some kind of MageKiller etc.
* TookALevelInDumbass: He seems to be a bit slower on the uptake in the series than he did in the movies.
* TheTrickster: Slightly less so than Aladdin. He'll grant wishes, but he'll put on a show first.
* TopHeavyGuy: He has an extremely big upper body and much smaller lower half, though the fact that his lower half is usually a ghost-like tail distracts from it. It's much more noticeable when he's pretending to be human, or in the animated series where he uses legs more often.
* TheUnfettered: He literally becomes this at the end of the first movie; wishing him free negates his problems with only being able to use his magic when a master commands it, and with having his life bound to his lamp. Implicitly, it also removes the restrictions on how he can use his magic, meaning that once freed, Genie technically ''can kill people''. Fortunately, he's far too nice a guy to do something like that.
* VoluntaryShapeshifter: His most commonly used power, and there's never any established limits on it.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Genie is powerless if placed into a container (like a jar) with a lid or stopper of some kind.
** Also, guava juice makes genies lose control of their powers.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He's really afraid of Mukhtars, who are the natural enemies of all genies.


''See Characters/DisneyPrincessPrincessesByBirth''


->''"He hates fireworks, and he really doesn't like flying either."''
-->-- '''Aladdin'''

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/FrankWelker
Aladdin's oldest friend, a highly intelligent monkey with a strong streak of kleptomania and a natural gift for thievery.

* BigEater: He chows into things that are nearly as big as he is.
* ButtMonkey: Although not as badly as Iago, he does tend to get hurt or humilated for drama (and, to a lesser extent, comedy).
* EmpathyPet: To Aladdin for the thieving. He also points out his LoveAtFirstSight with Jasmine.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: He's a monkey and Aladdin's NonHumanSidekick.
* FreudianExcuse: "Seems Like Old Crimes" was trained by a trio of thieves. It's implied that he's constantly stealing because the trio never let him have a piece of the take (and stole what Aladdin had given to him).
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Much more selfish and greedy than the other main characters (not including Iago), and can get frustrated rather quickly. However he's kindhearted, loyal and willing to risk his life to save Aladdin and his friends.
* TheLancer: Aladdin's sidekick.
* LoveableRogue: Like Aladdin. He's thief and a kleptomaniac, but also funny, likable and a good friend to Aladdin.
* MasterOfUnlocking: He has a set of lockpicks hidden away in his vest. He uses them to free Aladdin from jail.
* TheMillstone: In the Cave of Wonders, he grabs a huge ruby out of a monkey idol's paws, initiating the destruction of the cave.
* MisplacedWildlife: A new world monkey in the Middle East?
* NaughtyIsGood: He's quite mischievous and sneaky, despite being one of the good guys.
* NeverBareheaded: Also much like Aladdin.
* NiceHat: Just like Aladdin's hat, no less. It turns out Aladdin even bought Abu that hat.
* PragmaticHero: Noticeably more selfish than Aladdin, and continues to be exceedingly sneaky even into the sequels. Monkeys don't share well.
* PrehensileTail: He's a cartoon monkey. Of course he can use his tail to manipulate and carry stuff.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: What would you expect of a Disney NonHumanSidekick? Just look at him! He's adorable.
* SilentSnarker: From time to time. Just look at his expression in the above pic!
* TheSneakyGuy: He's very good at sneaking around, even more so than Aladdin thanks to his smaller size, and he often uses this to help the others.
* SpannerInTheWorks: In the first movie, after Jafar betrays Aladdin and tries to kill him, Abu attacks him and secretly steals the lamp.
* SpeechImpairedAnimal: Though he can make noise, he can't speak. Iago can apparently understand what Abu says, though.
* StickyFingers: He'll steal anything not nailed down. This really gets him in trouble in the Cave of Wonders.
* TheUnintelligible: A little harder to notice. Most of the time it just sounds like monkey noises. But there are times when you can make out the human language. Like "Ahhraadeeen" or "eaahh shwuaah".
* UndyingLoyalty: Towards Aladdin.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Iago.

->''"Look at this! I'm so ticked off that I'm '''molting'''!"''

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/GilbertGottfried
Originally Jafar's loyal if often abused sidekick, Iago the Parrot is sealed away with Jafar inside of the lamp at the end of the first film. Instrumental in freeing the both of them from the sandy wastes of the desert, he abandons Jafar and sets out to find his own path in life, ultimately ending up a somewhat reluctant friend to Aladdin and company.

* AntiHero: Ather his HeelFaceTurn.
* BeingEvilSucks[=/=]BeingGoodSucks: In the TV series episode "Poor Iago" Iago becomes extremely greedy (even more than usual) only for him to receive all sorts of nasty punishments because of his behavior. This causes him to have an epiphany and he attempts to completely reform his ways, becoming kind-hearted and generous. This winds up backfiring on him as well. He ultimately decides it's best to just stick with a balance and not be ''too'' much of a jerk, but don't be too nice either.
* BerserkButton: "Polly want a cracker." In the first movie, the Sultan was constantly feeding him "moldy, disgusting crackers". He decided to return the favor when Jafar rose to power. In the second movie, Jafar reminding him that he would have still been in the bazaar without him spouting that same line was the last straw. And in the third movie, just as Cassim was going to repeat that line, Iago said if he finished he'd "let [him] have it on principle!"
* BigDamnHeroes: He pulls an epic one in the end of the second movie, which results in Jafar being killed.
-->"'''Hey, Jafar! [[BigShutUp SHUUUUUUUT UUUUUUUUUUUP!!!]]'''"
* BreakoutCharacter: He rivals Genie with popularity.
* ButtMonkey: The movie writers' mantra: "When in doubt, hurt the bird."
* ChangedMyMindKid: In ''The Return of Jafar''. He opts to bail just before the final confrontation with Jafar. Just when things are looking bleak for our heroes, Iago comes charging into the fight and manages to snatch Jafar's genie lamp. Despite being injured by a magical blast, Iago is able to shove the lamp into a pool of lava, destroying Jafar and saving the day.
* DirtyCoward: For much of the second movie, he spent a lot of time looking out for himself almost exclusively although unlike many of the examples here, he can be courageous and selfless. Two examples come up in the second film.
* DidYouJustRomanceCthulhu: His relationship with Thundra. She's a powerful nature goddess, Iago just a regular bird.
* TheDragAlong: In the series he is the quintessential embodiment of this trope. He's more concerned with living in the lap of luxury and staying out of danger, and, as a Card Carrying Coward, is none too happy with being dragged along on some grand adventure every other day (which is understandable, since he's a bit of a pain magnet).
* FeatheredFiend: In the first movie he's almost as cruel as Jafar. Even in the series, he's still the nastiest member of the group, which the group is more than willing to exploit if they need someone who can be unreservedly spiteful or vicious. Aladdin might be too nice a guy to sic a [[AntiMagic magic-devouring monster]] on an EvilSorcerer -- but he's got no qualms about letting Iago do it for him.
* FeatherFingers: He's got some dexterous wings, holding crackers or tearing out his own feathers with them.
* FieryRedhead: Technically, he has red feathers, but he's got attitude.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Zigzagged. He elicits a lot of complaints and teasing from the others in the group for his flaws and his trouble-making, but they still trust and care for him, and he reciprocates as best he can given his personality.
* {{Greed}}: Even after his HeelFaceTurn he still maintains his greedy qualities.
* HeelFaceTurn: He spent the entirety of the first film on Jafar's side. The beginning of the second film, ''The Return of Jafar'', sees Iago escape from Jafar's lamp and slowly turn face over the course of the movie, even offing Jafar for good by kicking his lamp into magma. Not that Iago's all that heroic, but his conscience does get the better of him on a number of occasions.
** HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Switching sides ''three'' times in ''The Return of Jafar'', and then conspiring with Cassim in ''King of Thieves''.
* IChooseToStay: [[spoiler: Inverted after the third movie, where he chooses to leave the palace after Aladdin's marriage to Jasmine and travel the world with Cassim.]]
* TheImp: Small, loud, motor-mouthed and less than moral, as well as having a propensity to stir up trouble, intentionally and otherwise.
* InkSuitActor: Frequently described as "a feathered Gilbert Gottfried".
* {{Jerkass}}: In the original movie, where he's an obnoxious and cruel sidekick for Jafar.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: As his character develops he becomes a good guy, but is still usually out for himself alone and greedy to a fault.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Iago may be coward and smug to the point of being neurotic, but given that he's often dragged against his will around the world to face very powerful supernatural beings, it's [[ProperlyParanoid not without reason]].
* LargeHam
** Example from the TV Show:
* LaserGuidedKarma: A frequent victim of this.
* ManipulativeBastard: A master of this.
* TheMillstone: In the TV series, a lot of the problems Aladdin and the gang go through wind up being the result of Iago's greed, ego, and/or cowardice. However, there are also several times where he still winds up contributing greatly to the group as well in spite of these vices.
* MoneyFetish: Unabashedly the greediest member of the series and always eager for cash.
* MisplacedWildlife: He's a South American parrot in the Middle East. Jafar found him in the bazaar and taught him how to talk.
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: The primary reason for his HeelFaceTurn: he's tired of constantly being abused and pushed around by Jafar.
* TheNapoleon: He usually takes this role when he works with Abu and Genie.
* NoIndoorVoice: What did you expect from Gilbert Gottfried?
* ObnoxiousSnarker: He's very loud and sarcastic, but also a LargeHam and a ButtMonkey.
* PollyWantsAMicrophone: Interestingly, for most of the original movie, Iago pretends to be a regular parrot when in the presence of characters other than Jafar. In the second movie, Jafar claims that "If it weren't for me, you'd still be in a cage at the bazaar squawking 'Polly want a cracker'", which is sometimes taken to mean that Iago was a normal parrot whom Jafar made articulate with some sort of magic. On the other hand, no one seems to find it surprising that Iago is articulate.
* [[RedHeadedHero Red-Feathered Hero]]: Averted in the first film, but becomes one in the first sequel and onwards.
* SarcasticDevotee: He is this to both Jafar and later Aladdin.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Attempted at the end of the first movie, but it doesn't work out.
* SixthRanger: With doses of TheLancer.
* SmallNameBigEgo: He's arrogant and egotistical, despite the fact he has no magical powers, political status or combat skills.
* SnarkyNonhumanSidekick: To Jafar initially, but also after his HeelFaceTurn in the sequels and television series.
* SoulJar: More like "Emotion Jar", WordOfGod [[http://www.wordplayer.com/columns/wp53.The.Rules.html states]] that one of the concepts behind Iago's character is that Jafar transferred all of his emotions to Iago so that he would be free of distractions and better at conjuring magic. Of course, Iago is too small to actually suppress those emotions so you've got yourself a feathered Gilbert Gottfried.
* StationaryWings: The fact that he can express with his wings in mid-air makes you think he's floating.
* TalkingAnimal: Unlike Abu and Rajah. Justified, since he's a parrot.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Tiny Guy to Thundra's Huge Girl.
* TokenEvilTeammate: After his HeelFaceTurn. He's not quite as malicious as he was in the first film, but he's a ''lot'' more ruthless and vice-driven than anyone else.
* ToothyBird: As pictured in the trope page, he sports a fine set of choppers.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Tends toward this: in the first movie, he has a relationship like this with Jafar until their falling out in the sequel. He is like this with the rest of the team in the series, though he gets especially close (and insulting) to Abu and Genie.
* VoiceChangeling: His specialty. Justified because he's a parrot.
* WildCard: Throughout all three movies and the series, Iago is about as reliable morality-wise as a chocolate teapot. [[{{Metaphorgotten}} In fact rather less so, as a chocolate teapot is not capable of good or evil, whereas Iago is capable of both or neither depending on his mood.]]

[[folder:The Carpet]]
An enchanted carpet that has been trapped in the Cave of Wonders for an untold time, this magical rug is capable of flight and is a sentient being in its own right. He and the Genie are old friends, in part due to spending so long in the Cave together.

* AnimateInanimateObject: He's a sentient (and flying) carpet.
* BashBrothers: He and Genie work particularly well together and have known each other for a ''very'' long time.
* BigDamnHeroes: Often catches the heroes mid-air.
* DontTouchItYouIdiot: To Abu in the movie.
* FacePalm: Manages to do this without a face ''or'' a palm. It uses its corner tassels as makeshift "hands".
* HypercompetentSidekick: A helpful and useful NonHumanSidekick who helps the heroes several times.
* [[JustAKid Just a Carpet]]: He doesn't like being treated as just a piece of decoration, but who would?
* {{Leitmotif}}: Yes, even the Carpet gets one. You can hear a soft variation of it when they first meet Carpet, followed by a bombastic version during the escape from the cave. It returns as Aladdin and Abu escape the ends of the earth later on.
* MagicCarpet: Well, obviously. He's a carpet that can rapidly transport people who sit on top of it.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue oni to Genie's red oni. He's TheQuietOne while Genie is boisterous and energetic.
* TheReliableOne: Big time. He's just a carpet, but a heroic, intelligent carpet who is always there whenever Aladdin and the others need him.
* RunningGag: Constantly besting Genie at various games.
* ShipperOnDeck: Aladdin and Jasmine's FirstKiss happened thanks to him.
* SilentSnarker: Several times, like in the scene with Aladdin and Jasmine after the "A Whole New World" song. See also FacePalm.
%%* ThatOnePlayer: To Genie.
* TheSilentBob: Justified; he's a ''carpet.'' He can't talk!
* SmarterThanYouLook: He has shown to possess an almost-human level of intelligence, due to his HypercompetentSidekick role.
* TheSpeechless: It's a carpet. He may be sentient, but is not exactly prone to conversation.
* WeaksauceWeakness: He can be beaten by particularly heavy piece of furniture, or someone with a knowledge of basic knots.

[[folder:The Sultan]]
->''"I'm not going to be around forever, and I just want to make sure you're taken care of."''

->'''Voiced by:''' Douglas Seale
The benevolent and good-natured Sultan of Agrabah, Jasmine's father loves his people but especially his daughter and wishes only for her to be happy and taken care of. So, he tries to get her betrothed to an ArrangedMarriage, but fails because no prince is ever good enough for her. When she falls in love with Aladdin, who also saves Agrabah from the tyranny of Jafar, he gives them his blessing to wed.

* AdiposeRex: Age and high living have made him quite roly-poly.
* BadassGrandpa: For the most part, averted... though in some episodes of the series he shows this such as the episode where he impressed the man-hating amazons.
* BerserkButton: Do ''not'' threaten the city or its people, and ''especially'' his daughter Jasmine if you know what's good for you.
* BigGood: As the kind, benevolent Sultan of Agrabah.
* BumblingDad: To Jasmine. Not stupid, but somewhat childish and gullible.
* CluelessBoss: His default state, especially in the first movie. Every now and then in the series however he would show moments of competence.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He seems to be a bumbling, almost childlike figure most commonly, but he was a pretty good adventurer and warlord in his younger days, and he still retains something of his old skills.
* GeniusDitz: He's a competent ruler, but he seems hopelessly inept at reading people and is generally incredibly scatterbrained.
* GoodCounterpart: He's Jafar's opposite both physically and mentally.
* TheGoodKing: It's shown in the TV series. When Jasmine tells him about the impoverished people in his kingdom, he expresses concern. His inflection implies "I gotta do something about that."
* GoodParents: Despite his flaws, he is a good father to Jasmine. He wants her to marry but doesn't want it to be to someone she hates.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: The TropeNamer! The movie even lampshades this when the Sultan prides himself to be an excellent judge of character, and Iago grumbles his sarcastic "NOT!"
* LetsGetDangerous: He's normally docile, child-like and fun-loving, but he knows when to put his foot down when he has to.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A cute li'l {{Fanfare}}.
* ManChild: At times he acts very childish, such as collecting toys and getting really excited when riding the carpet.
* {{Miniature Senior Citizen|s}}: Although he wasn't any taller when he was younger either.
* NiceGuy: Shown to be a very kind and generous person. He actually has no personal problems with Jasmine marrying outside of royalty, it's just that royal customs forbid it. And he forgot that he ''makes'' the royal customs.
* NoNameGiven: Although [[AllThereInTheManual the lyrics for the]] [[CutSong unused reprises for Arabian Nights]] reveal that his name is Hamed. Also, in one episode of the series, the ghost of his grandfather calls him [[spoiler: "Bobo"]].
* PapaWolf: Towards his daughter Jasmine. See BerserkButton.
* PingPongNaivete: Sometimes he comes off as pretty on the ball under his bubbliness, but at others he just seems wholly inept, such as that one time where he's apparently ''totally unaware'' that there are poor people in Agrabah.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Despite his flaws, he's generally a worthy ruler knowing when to put his power into good use. In ''The King of Thieves'', he agrees to drop all charges against Aladdin for busting Cassim free because Aladdin only did so out of love and willingly came back to accept the consequences.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: On occasion in the television show. The end of the first movie has him realize how outdated the law is, and how much Aladdin has proven himself, so he revokes it.
* RetiredBadass: If the stories about his past are true he's had an eventful life before settling down.
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Though it takes him a movie to realize he can.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/FrankWelker
Princess Jasmine's large yet loyal and loving pet tiger.

* AllAnimalsAreDogs: He acts like a (very tough) house cat.
* AmplifiedAnimalAptitude: Not to the extent of Abu, but he's pretty smart for an animal, assisting Jasmine in her escape from the palace and even comforting her while she's grieving for Aladdin, whom Jasmine, thanks to Jafar's trickery, believed to have been executed.
* CatsAreMean: Initially, before he warms up to Aladdin.
* CoolPet: He's completely loyal and devoted to Jasmine.
* CuteKitten: Turned into one by Jafar (temporarily) in the first movie.
* DemotedToExtra: In the TV Series, due to low-budget animation studios having trouble drawing his stripes properly on a consistent basis.
* EmpathyPet: Much like Abu is this to Aladdin.
* PantheraAwesome: Although he acts more like an oversized housecat.
* UndyingLoyalty: For Jasmine.

->''"Now where were we? Ah, yes - abject humiliation!"''

->'''Voiced by:''' Jonathan Freeman
The Sultan's Grand Vizier in the first film, he yearns to claim power over the throne but is forbidden from ever attaining that position. For this reason, he seeks the Lamp of the Genie, so that he may use the Genie to become Sultan in turn. Ultimately outwitted by Aladdin, he wishes himself to be turned into a genie, only to be sealed away inside his own lamp. Upon escaping, he "recruits" the bandit Abis Mal to aid him in seeking revenge.

* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: He spends most of the second movie in his original human form because his true genie form is a bit too much for Abis Mal to handle.
* AmbitionIsEvil: Particularly pronounced in comparison to Aladdin, who ultimately only wants power because he thinks it will make him good enough for Jasmine (with a bit of self esteem issues thrown in). Jafar wants power for power's sake, despite the fact he's already in a powerful position as the Grand Vizier and a DragonInChief to the Sultan, able to hypnotize him and make him into a PuppetKing whenever he feels like it. It just isn't enough for him; he wants more.
** He even becomes a powerful sorcerer once his second wish is granted then conquers Agrabah effortlessly. Not even that satisfies his greed apparently, finding that Genie was the one who granted him his powers would mean that he was one step below powerfully. Jafar uses his third BecomingTheGenie.
* AndNowYouMustMarryMe: His {{plan}} for Jasmine. She's horrified to find out.
* AnimalEyes: Briefly during his shape shifting into a snake
* AxCrazy: He looks calm and cold-blooded at first, but once he obtains the Lamp's power he loses all his coolness, revealing his true psychopathic nature. Genie calls him "Se˝or Psychopath" for a reason.
* BabyTalk: Present in the Swedish dub of the second movie where he often speaks in a tone that makes him come across as even more insulting and condescending towards others, especially towards Abis Mal.
* BadBoss: To Iago in the first movie and Abis Mal in the second movie. The former is fed up and quits being evil.
* BaldOfEvil: Not noticeable at first, but he's shown to be this during his BigYes to BigNo scene.
* BeardOfEvil: Jasmine, falsely admiringly, notes that it's "So twisted".
* BecomingTheGenie: His wish to become an all-powerful genie [[HoistByHisOwnPetard fires back on him]] and traps him in a new lamp. By the second film however this works to his advantage, since with his lamp rediscovered his transformation into an evil genie basically made him a near-omnipotent villain with all the time in the world to plot his revenge, but at the cost of having his life force trapped within the lamp.
* BigBad: The main villain of the first two films.
* BigNo: Gives out one after every defeat.
* BreathWeapon: "I'm just getting warmed up!" (''fire breath'')
* CardCarryingVillain: Though he doesn't say outright he's evil, he doesn't seem to take offense to Iago calling him "Your Rottenness" or "Oh Mighty Evil One". And if you call him a snake...
* CharmPerson: With his magic staff which he used to convince the Sultan to more easily persuade him.
* TheChessmaster: In the first movie, and ''especially'' the second movie.
* ClassicVillain: Representing Ambition and Pride. He even provides the page image.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Dressed in villainous black and red.
* CompositeCharacter: Jafar is a mixture of 3 antagonists from the fairy tale the movie is based on. They are the sorcerer who wanted the genie, the vizier who tried to discredit Aladdin after his rise to wealth, and the vizier's son who tried to marry the princess.
* CreepyLongFingers: Which goes along with his thin frame.
* DarkIsEvil: In his normal and sorcerer forms.
* DeadpanSnarker: During his less hammy moments.
* DeaderThanDead: This is seemingly his final fate in ''Hercules and the Arabian Night'', his final chronological (though non-canon) appearance outside of alternate continuities. Jafar, being already dead but temporarily resurrected by Hades as long as he's holding his staff, has the snake staff destroyed by Hercules, causing him to sink into the river Styx, but disappear entirely before he's fully immersed.
* {{Determinator}}: In the first movie, he is completely foiled several times before the climax - in fact, halfway through the movie he is nearly beaten for good. Every time it seems like's finished, he comes up with a brand new plan and tries again - and by the end of the movie he's gone through about three.
* DraggedOffToHell: His ultimate fate in the Hercules crossover. After Hercules breaks his staff, the only thing keeping him alive, Jafar turns back into a ghost and is forcibly dragged into the River Styx by the souls within.
* EvilChancellor: A classic example, he even provides the image
* EvilCounterpart: Jafar is essentially a "dark mirror" of sorts for Aladdin. Just older, and having chief flaws that are exaggerated versions of Aladdin's own. Essentially both want to move up in the world and resort to trickery in order to do so. Both resort to deception in this pursuit. Jafar pretending to be a calm, stoic, and loyal advisor whilst he is actually a maniacal, sadistic, and eccentric villain. Aladdin in his Prince Ali guise puts out an air of arrogance, boisterousness, and regality to cover up his more mild-mannered and humble true persona. Ironically enough, Jasmine is able to see through both of them. Both also at least start to become too dependent on the use of magic in their pursuits. Aladdin uses the Genie to set up his fašade as a prince, and eventually becomes so worried about keeping up appearances that he tells the Genie that he believes he is going to have to go back on his promise to free him as he doesn't think he can keep up the ruse without him. Jafar similarly depends on using magical artifacts like his snake staff that has hypnotic powers with which he maintains control over the Sultan, and also like Aladdin seeks to use the Genie to help move himself up but in a more forceful way. In the end Jafar is defeated by Aladdin using his own natural wits rather than magic with which me manages to play on Jafar's obsessive craving for power. Jafar himself is somewhat conscious of their similarities given his line during the ''Prince Ali Reprise'' song number where he says, "So Ali turns out to be merely Aladdin. Just a con, need I go on, take from me." Heck, both even have small, as well as greedy, comic relief animal sidekicks that hang out with them.
** It could also be said that Jafar comes to serve as this for Genie as well after he has made his wish to turn himself into a genie as well.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: His hat, robes, and staff change after he becomes a sorcerer, and again after he becomes a genie.
* EvilEyebrows: Big and thin ones
* EvilGenius: When he doesn't give into {{Pride}} he's actually very clever, especially in the sequel.
* EvilIsBigger: He may be LeanAndMean, but he absolutely towers over everybody else in the movie except the Genie.
* EvilIsHammy: Especially after becoming the greatest sorcerer in the world.
* EvilIsPetty: From ''The Return of Jafar'' onwards, his only motivation is to get revenge on Aladdin; everything else, including world domination, is a distant second.
* EvilLaugh: One of the greats. The one he gives after he has Jasmine and the Sultan at his mercy is so psychotic it's downright terrifying.
* EvilPlan: Acquiring the lamp and marrying are ends to the same goal; take over the kingdom.
* EvilSorcerer: The greatest [[LargeHam IN THE WORLD]]!!!
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: He convulses in agony while his ''skeleton'' appears in flashes of light in a manner not dissimilar to how electrocution is portrayed.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Begins as composed, polite and stoic, but gradually reveals the true monster behind the act.
* FisherKing: When he takes control the sky becomes red
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Multiple times. He starts as a SmugSnake, then he becomes an EvilSorcerer, then he becomes a PhysicalGod. In ''Return of Jafar'' he doesn't get any stronger, but he definitely gets ''smarter''.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: In his Genie form.
* AGodAmI
* {{Greed}}: His FatalFlaw. He cannot control his lust for more and more power. This is also what eventually does him in---see below.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: His wish to be an all-powerful genie is what resulted in his being imprisoned in a lamp at the end of the first movie.]]
* HypnoRay: Via his MagicStaff.
* GoodColorsEvilColors: His genie form is red, with fangs and claws, compared to Genie's blue.
* [[ABoyAndHisX A Guy and His Parrot]]: Him and Iago have this relationship.
* InsultBackfire: Which triggers his giant cobra form:
-->'''Aladdin''': Are you too afraid to fight me yourself, you cowardly snake?!
-->'''Jafar''': A snake, am I? Perhaps you'd like to see how ssssnakelike I can be! (''cue giant snake transformation'')
%%* ItsAllAboutMe
* JackassGenie: In ''Return of Jafar'', where he grants wishes to his master Abis Mal in exactly the worst way and compells him to help "his" genie under threat of receiving a FateWorseThanDeath.
%%* {{Jerkass}}
* KilledOffForReal: He is killed off for real in ''[[Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar The Return of Jafar]]''. The ''Aladdin'' canon continued with three seasons of [[WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries a cartoon series]] as well as [[Disney/AladdinAndTheKingOfThieves a final movie]], all without bringing Jafar back, even though Jafar is a relatively popular Disney villain. He does return in a ''Hercules'' crossover episode, in which he's still ''technically'' dead. His partner is Hades, Lord of the Dead.
* LackOfEmpathy: After seeing Jasmine cry after lying about Aladdin's execution, his reaction?
-->'''Jafar''': I think she took it rather well.
* LargeAndInCharge: Iago's words about him in ''Return of Jafar''.
* LargeHam: One of Disney's largest.
* LeaderWannabe: He wants to be Sultan.
* LeanAndMean: To contrast with the round and buffed characters in the film.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A dramatic, descending piece that sounds a bit like "Arabian Nights."
* LightningBruiser: Jafar in his cobra form. Justified because he's huge and because [[TruthInTelevision cobras are REALLY fast]].
* LoopholeAbuse: Genies can't kill anyone outright, but in ''Return of Jafar'' there's nothing stopping him from setting up people to be killed indirectly, such as leaving them dangling from a rock over a pit of lava, teleporting them to the bottom of the ocean and threatening to drown them, or setting up their execution. Or making them ''[[FateWorseThanDeath wish]]'' [[FateWorseThanDeath they were dead]], as he often reminds people:
---> "You'd be surprised what you can live through."
* MagicStaff: His first, projecting his HypnoRay through the eyes, was smashed by Aladdin, breaking his control over the Sultan. His second, the open-mouthed replacement after his second wish, had more general applications. He gets a third in the Hercules crossover, which is what keeps him corporeal.
* ManipulativeBastard: He uses his influence to control the kingdom with his CharmPerson powers, he graduates to greater intelligent schemes in the sequel.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: He's named after GrandVizierJafar, which has often been adopted as a name for a Middle Eastern villain.
* NiceHat: Which becomes pointy as a sorcerer.
* ObviouslyEvil: To everyone but the Sultan, who is [[TropeNamers a]] HorribleJudgeOfCharacter.
* OminousOperaCape: Which is black that's red on the inside.
* OneWingedAngel: In addition to the ScaledUp mentioned below, he turns into a Genie. While it doesn't work for him ''at the time'' and he becomes SealedEvilInACan, he proves in the sequel he's far more powerful than before.
** Even before he became a Genie, he transformed himself into a giant cobra as a sorcerer.
* OutOfTheInferno: He calmly walks through the ring of fire he surrounded Aladdin with.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Implied. He views speechlessness as "a fine quality in a wife".
* PowerEchoes: In his genie form.
* {{Pride}}: His FatalFlaw. He can't accept even being the ''[[SecondPlaceIsForLosers second]]'' most powerful being on Earth and wishes to become a genie, leading to his own imprisonment.
* PungeonMaster: As a sorcerer, Jafar announces each attack with a lame pun. "Your ''time'' is up!/Don't ''toy'' with me!/Get the ''point?!''", etc.
* RealityWarper: His powers increase with each wish until he becomes an all-powerful genie with phenomenal cosmic powers.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: His outfit.
* RevengeBeforeReason: In "Return Of Jafar," where his downfall comes mainly due to being so obsessed with revenge that he ignores the loose ends that ultimately destroy him. [[VillainTeamUp Hades]] calls him out on this in the series' crossover with ''Disney/{{Hercules}}''.
* ScaledUp: Turns into a gigantic cobra. Worth noting, this is one of the few times it's actually effective.
* SealedEvilInACan: He becomes one at the end of ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' after he wishes to become a Genie and he gets trapped in a dark lamp. He gets freed in ''Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar'' by a thief, and goes back to Agrabah to get his revenge on the heroes.
* ShouldersOfDoom: Gets them after becoming a sorcerer.
* SmugSnake: Initially, but he graduates to a MagnificentBastard in ''Return of Jafar''
* SssssnakeTalk: As a giant cobra, obviously.
* SoulJar: After becoming a genie, his life-force is tied to his lamp and if its destroyed, he goes along with it. Which is exactly how he meets his end in the second film.
* TheStarscream: His lifestyle is as the MindControl-equipped power behind the throne to the weak sultan of Agrabah, with ambitions only to obtain greater magical power, but as Jasmine's coming-of-age threatens to introduce political competition[[note]] in the form of Jasmine coming into a queen's estate and being able to get rid of him, rather than in the form of her prospective husband staking out his own turf[[/note]], he conceives an intent to marry into the succession.
** Eventually after securing the genie he just makes a wish and ''is'' sultan of Agrabah, which is thinking kind of small compared to some versions of the story given it appears to be a wealthy little oasis city all by its lonesome in a bunch of dunelands, maybe a lesser cousin of Samarkand. Anyway he turns the real sultan into a court jester. He did ''not'' like pretending to respect the guy.
** Points for his coming up with the succession thing within the story, and from Iago's suggestion. No [[WifeHusbandry Hikaru Genji Plan]] here, folks!
* VillainBall: Several, notably listening to Aladdin's suggestion that he should [[BecomingTheGenie become a stronger genie]] rather than kill him immediately.
* VillainSong: ''Prince Ali Reprise'' in the first film and ''[[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech You're Only Second Rate]]'' in the second one. He also had three cut songs from the first movie, ''Why Me?'', ''[[HumiliationConga Humiliate The Boy]]'', and ''My Finest Hour''.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: As the grand vizier. Ends when Aladdin exposes him and his plans.
* WickedCultured: One of the most sophisticated in {{Disney}} canon.
* WingdingEyes: During his EvilLaugh at the end of ''Prince Ali Reprise''.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: After he becomes a sorcerer, he goes a little bit nuts. It only gets worse in The Sequel. Of course, there's nothing to say he wasn't already insane to begin with.
* WouldHitAGirl: Even though he doesn't get to the point due to deciding that forcing her to become his love slave via Genie would be much better, Jafar was about to seriously backhand Jasmine when she tossed the wine in his face. And he outright ''tries to kill her'' by suffocating Jasmine in a giant sand hourglass.
* XRaySparks: When destroyed in the second film.

->''"I'll have your hands for a trophy, street rat!"''

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JimCummings
Chief of the Sultan's guards, Razoul is the enforcer of law and order in Agrabah, and holds a particular resentment for Aladdin, who has a past of escaping him and making he and his men seem like fools.

* AllCrimesAreEqual: It doesn't matter if you're an old man or a woman, or if you're a JustifiedCriminal like Aladdin who only steals food to survive. If you commit a crime, he ''will'' come after you. TruthInTelevision: Medieval era laws and punishments were ''very'' harsh, no matter where in the world you were.
%%* BadassBeard
%%* ButtMonkey
* ChainedHeat: With Aladdin in the TV finale. Even better, it was a magic chain. If they got along, it was long; disagreeing, short; and if they started fighting, the shackles fused together.
* {{Determinator}}: The first film establishes that he has been after Aladdin for quite some time.
* GrumpyBear: We rarely ever see him happy about anything, and the one time he was, it quickly got snatched away by the King of Thieves.
* HeroAntagonist: He's only doing his job.
* InspectorJavert: Even after Aladdin becomes Jasmine's fiance, Razoul will look for any excuse to arrest Aladdin or make things hard for the "street rat."
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He doesn't even try to hide his dislike of Aladdin even after the Sultan and Jasmine accept him, but he still at least tolerates his presence.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Sometimes. [[ByTheBookCop When Aladding was a thief, Razoul was just trying to do his job of maintaining law and order in Agrabah.]] He also can't be blamed for being suspicious of a former criminal courting the Princess who he is in charge of protecting.
* KarmaHoudini: Despite having had a direct hand in times (at least three) when Aladdin has nearly died, he never faces any significant punishment.
* PsychoForHire: {{Zig Zagged|Trope}}. There are numerous hints and examples that he enjoys executing people. In the first movie, he eagerly and readily attempts to drown Aladdin/Prince Ali in the ocean under Jafar's orders, and in ''The Return of Jafar'', when Jafar's EvilPlan leads him to think that Aladdin had killed the Sultan, he's so eager to see it happen that he plays the executioner himself. However, when the Sultan, overshadowed by an evil spirit, ordered Jasmine to be executed, he wasn't comfortable with being the one to do the job.
** Considering both times, he was about to execute Aladdin, it seems more like he's eager to kill Aladdin. Possibly a case of revenge for Aladdin making a fool of him and his men for so long.
* RedShirtArmy: This is very evident where the Royal Guards had difficulty defeating Dominus Tusk.
* TheResenter: A mild version occasionally shows in the TV series, he's evidently not happy about the fact that the thief he's been chasing in the movie has become his superior. You can't just expect the cop to be cool with the ex-con after all, prince or not.
* SurroundedByIdiots: The other guards aren't very bright.
-->'''Guard''': He's got a sword!
-->'''Razou''': You idiots... [[NoIndoorVoice WE'VE ALL GOT SWORDS!]]
* UndyingLoyalty: To the Sultan and Princess Jasmine. Case-in-point: in the first movie, when Aladdin is arrested by him, Jasmine, who had been hanging out with him in disguise, promptly reveals herself and demands that they let him go. Razoul, who had been eager to finally capture Aladdin, immediately changes his tune and apologizes, politely telling Jasmine that he would do so, but he's working under Jafar's orders.
* UnwittingPawn: To Jafar in the first two movies, some occasions in the TV series, and to Sa'luk in ''King Of Thieves''.

[[folder: Fazal and Hakim]]

The two guards most frequently seen alongside Razoul, going from nameless extras in the first film to named, if minor, characters in the series. Like Razoul, they loyally serve the Sultan and Agrabah, although not with a particularly great deal of competence.
* BigEater: Fazal loves to eat, to the point that Razoul jokes that when Fazal is ''not'' thinking of his next meal, it'll be time to bury him.
* ButtMonkey: Like their boss, they get manhandled and kicked around a lot, mostly to show off how Aladdin is the show's hero.
* TheEeyore: Hakim is so gloomy that, even when saved from death by discovering an oasis in the desert, his claim to have never been so happy is made with a depressed, tired monotone.
* FatAndSkinny: Fazal's the fat one, Hakim is the skinny one.
* KarmaHoudini: Like Razoul, they were involved in abducting and attempting to murder "Prince Ali", but never get notably punished for it.
* ThoseTwoGuys: There's technically a third guard who hangs out with them, but he never speaks or gets named, so it's mostly them.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Fazal loves dates.

[[folder: Prince Achmed]]

A {{Jerkass}} prince and one of Jasmine's would-be suitors.
* DisproportionateRetribution: He tried to whip two ''children'' for simply getting in his way.
* {{Irony}}: He explicitly tells Aladdin that he's nothing but a "worthless street rat" and will never be anything more. Not only does Achmed not get Jasmine, but Aladdin himself ends up with her at the end.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's first introduced calling two children "filthy brats" and trying to whip them.
* LaserGuidedKarma: After publicly humiliating Aladdin before going to court Jasmine, he's attacked by Rajah and sent packing.
* PrinceCharmless: To quote Aladdin:
-->'''Aladdin''': If I was as rich as you, I could afford some manners!
* WouldHurtAChild: He tried to beat two little kids with a bullwhip just for getting in his way; fortunately, [[FriendToAllChildren Aladdin]] intervened.
