* After Jafar takes over and enslaves both the Sultan and Jasmine, he tries to have her marry him. Jasmine's response? Grab a glass of wine and [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu throw it directly into Jafar's face]]. Most powerful being on the Earth as he may be, Jasmine will ''not'' submit to him.

Grab a glass of wine (or, more likely, pomegranate juice, as devout Muslims don't touch alcohol) and [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu throw it directly into Jafar's face]]. Most powerful being on the Earth as though he may be, Jasmine will ''not'' submit to him.


** Look at the entire Disney canon. Aladdin proves to be one of the very few heroes who win the day not through [[BiggerStick violence]] or [[DisneyDeath accident]], but through his own intelligence and humility, putting him in the same group as WesternAnimation/{{Mulan}}, [[WesternAnimation/{{Zootopia}} Judy Hopps]], [[WesternAnimation/TheGreatMouseDetective Basil of Baker Street]], WesternAnimation/{{Moana}}, and [[WesternAnimation/{{RayfaAndTheLastDragon}} Raya]]

* One for the Sultan has an EstablishingCharacterMoment. When the latest prince walks off in a rage, Sultan goes to ask Jasmine what happened. Cue Rajah showing up, with shredded underwear in his mouth. The Sultan gets into a tug-of-war with a tiger, and then angrily asks Jasmine if she set her pet on Achmed. He may be oblivious to Jafar's machinations, but the Sultan is a good man through and through.



** Jasmine is also incredibly quick on the uptake when Aladdin jumps in to help her in the marketplace. She quickly realises what he's doing and plays along enough to convince the baffled street vendor. She even improvises talking to a random camel like it's her doctor.

This buys them time when Abu inadvertently reveals he pickpocketed the vendor.


Added DiffLines:

* Jafar tries to make Genie use his magic to force Jasmine to love him. The Genie...says no. Part of it is the rules, but he takes the time to explain to Jafar that he not only doesn't want to do it, but he also can't do it. Best of all, Jafar arguing with him creates a distraction for Aladdin and Abu to alert Jasmine they're in the room, but to keep mum.


* Jasmine is able to distract Jafar to help Aladdin get the lamp simply by fooling him into thinking Genie's wish to make her love him worked. She's even willing to kiss him to preserve the ruse. Sadly Jafar sees Aladdin's reaction in her crown through sheer bad luck.

* When the movie was released in 1992, it earned praise from the late Creator/ChuckJones himself, who called it 'the funniest feature ever made'.
* The Regina Belle and Peabo Bryson version of "A Whole New World" won three major awards in 1993: the Academy Award for Best Original Song, a Grammy Award for Song of the Year, and a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song. In addition, the song is the first and so far only song from a Disney animated film to top the ''Billboard'' Hot 100. It also spent six weeks atop ''Billboard''[='=]s Adult Contemporary chart, and one week at #1 on ''Billboard''[='=]s Mainstream Top 40 chart.

** After getting kicked into the mud by the snobby prince, Aladdin arguably gets the last laugh by loudly saying "look at that everyone: a horse with ''two'' butts." '''BURN.'''

* The hero gets his own Moment of Awesome in the rematch, however - even though Jafar is just as powerful and seemingly just as unbeatable the second time around - by [[DidYouJustScamCthulhu tricking him into wishing for]] ''[[DidYouJustScamCthulhu even more power]]''... which comes with some [[PowerAtAPrice rather significant drawbacks.]]
