As a Moments subpage, all spoilers are unmarked. You Have Been Warned.

  • The title song, where the other Disney villains all tell their own side of the story, leading Ja'far to realize he has to do the right thing, regardless of how he'll be remembered as a villain for it.
    Ja'far: I'll never be a hero all the citizen adore
    But if I hide to save my life, what has my life been for?!
  • Aladdin's dual personality argument. Admittedly it's a Shout-Out to the musical version of Jekyll & Hyde and the movie version of The Lord of the Rings, but that's still a very hard trick to pull off.

  • The show is Dylan Saunders' own personal CMOA. After years of being a supporting player on the Starkid team, he was given an extremely complex lead role, and absolutely nails it the whole way through.
  • How Achmed is defeated. The Princess uses the Lost Treasure of Ali Baba to buy out his kingdom of Pik-zahr in favor of the Magic Kingdom to lead the Magic Kingdom back to the golden age with the help of the brilliant minds of Pik-zahr. The Reality Subtext is brilliant in and of itself as well.
  • Robert Manion has been billed as a "fan-turned-StarKid," which is cool in and of itself, but when you realize that he had previously entered and won a contest to write a song for A Very Potter Senior Year (in the end, the two winning songs weren't put into the show due to time constraints), you realize that he left such an impact on the Team that they asked him to audition for a role in their next show. Manion is also the first Australian and second non-American to be a part of a StarKid show, the first being the Irish Evanna Lynch. Not to trivialize Lynch's involvement, but this means that Manion was the first non-American to get in by virtue of talent, rather than pre-existing star power.

  • After a healthy dose of Character Development, the Princess stands up to Aladdin and tells him to piss off, because she's never going to have sex with him.
  • It may not have any effect, but you have to cheer on Ja'far telling the Djinn "Will you stop being an asshole for one minute!"

How well does it match the trope?
