* AllAnimationIsDisney: Could very well be the UrExample of this. This film is mistaken for Disney more than any other animated film out there, due largely in part to it copying many aspects of the "[[TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation 1990s Disney Princess formula]]". It is mistaken for a Disney film so often that if you search "Anastasia" on Google, one of the very first search suggestions will be "anastasia disney".

* HilariousInHindsight: Rasputin's line before singing "In the Dark of the Night:"
--> "Now my dark purpose will be fulfilled, and the last of the Romanovs will DIE! *DramaticThunder*"
** Now compare that to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNitT8zcbuw this]] scene from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames Wand of Gamelon]]''
* MemeticMutation: Many Website/YouTube postings of "In the Dark of the Night" come with parody lyrics featuring another villain (such as [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]], [[{{Franchise/Transformers}} Megatron]], or [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Discord]]) in place of Rasputin.
** The top comments for the song on [=YouTube=] have included [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog Robotnik]] and [[Film/WreckItRalph King Candy.]]
** And now there's...[[Franchise/HarryPotter Ron Weasley's car]]...
** Franchise/WinnieThePooh. Bonus points for Creator/JimCummings voicing Pooh and singing the song!
*** ''I was once the most mystical Bear in the Forest. When the Piglet betrayed me he made a mistake! My curse made each of them pay, but one little boy got away! Christopher Robbin beware, the Pooh Bear's awake!''
* [[MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales Russians Love Anastasia]]: ''Anastasia'' was actually well received in Russia and a box office hit, since its distributors took care to market it as not history but a historical fairy tale, letting the audience watch it with a fair dose of MST3KMantra.
* VindicatedByHistory: The movie had a decent-at-best box office showing of just over $50m (equating to about $100m today), which was not exactly the blockbuster Fox was hoping for with its new animation arm. However, once released on VHS, it gained a word-of-mouth following and spent over a year consecutively on the monthly best-selling VHS charts.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: This is another one of Don Bluth's darkest films. There are moments of death, extreme violence, dark peril, StuffBlowingUp very realistically, ghostly spirits and corpses, not to mention [[spoiler:[[FamilyUnfriendlyViolence the death of Rasputin]], involving him melting into a skeleton that crumbles into dust]].
