Despite being chummy with Aladdin and adopting a NeverHurtAnInnocent rule thanks to Cassim's leadership, they're still a band of barely restrained amoral murderous criminals who were once heartless and brutally robbed anyone while also clearly having a ResignationsNotAccepted rule for new recruits. It only took a minor speech and a beating from Sa'Luk to convince the remainders to return to their murderous ways.* The Aladdin vs. Sa'Luk fight is pretty intense. At one point Sa'luk slashes Al's arm with his wolverine claws (we only see Al yelling in agony and Abu, Iago and Cassim watching in horror.) ** Early previews show Aladdin's sleeve stained with blood during the 40 thieves song immediately afterwards, obviously from that same slash. That got edited out by the time the movie actually came out, though a dark spot resembling blood can be seen in the shadowed shot when Aladdin is clutching his arm after he is injured.* Saluk's character in general is quite off-putting, particularly when he survives his DisneyVillainDeath and ''kills a shark onscreen''. It's not made clear precisely how he did it, but it was still trying to breathe after he beached it, then it just gives up and dies. Proves that while he may not have any magical powers like Jafar, Sa'Luk is still without a doubt, a ''terrifying'' threat! (Especially his [[WolverineClaws knuckleduster that can rip his foes to shreds]]). * There's a scorpion with a vaguely human face living in the lair of the Thieves. [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment We see it for just a second and it never comes up again]]. Probably just a [[PropRecycling a reused cel from the animated series]] [[SubvertedTrope and merely an average scorpion.]] But hideous nonetheless.* [[spoiler:Saluk]]'s death. [[spoiler:He grabs the Hand of Midas... literally. This [[TakenForGranite turns him into solid gold]] with a hellish, muffled scream, causing him to drop into the water.]]----
