Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

This page needs a better description. You can help this wiki by expanding or clarifying the information given.


Tropes used in Ali Baba and the Gold Raiders include:
  • Anachronism Stew: One of the thieves is wearing a Batman shirt, for starters.
  • Conspicuous CG: Pretty much all of the backgrounds.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: Likely an unintended one; a giant hammer can be seen for one frame well before it's brandished.
  • Limited Animation
  • No Ending: After the leader of the gold raiders gets tied up and cries out for help, the title appears and the credits roll.
  • Off-Model: Among its other transgressions, a giant hammer can be seen for one frame well before it's brandished.
  • Plagiarism: They ripped off the song "Prince Ali" from Aladdin, albeit in MIDI form.
  • Plot Hole: It's not explained how the gold raiders found Ali Baba's house.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: See below.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After the gold raiders find Cassim in their cave, he disappears from the story. In the original story, the thieves killed him.
