Jafar isn’t like other villains. He’s smart and he could have had it all: a plush job at the palace, riches, big hats, and a pet bird. Instead he ends up with nothing because his greed gets in the way of his success. In short, he blows it. Here’s how:

 

Let’s start at the beginning. Jafar is the Royal Vizier which is the second best job in Agrabah.
You-Blew-it,-Jafar---Number-Two
(Sultan is the best job, obviously.)

 

Anyone else would be pretty proud of themselves for achieving so much.
You-it-Blew-it,-Jafar---Proud
They might have a sense of contentment, even peace.

 

Not this guy.
You-Blew-it,-Jafar---Not-This-Guy
(Or this bird.)

 

Nothing is ever enough for Jafar.
You Blew it, Jafar - Nothing is Enough
…Including the amount of time he must spend curling his beard every morning.

 

So he and Iago hatch an evil plan: marry Jasmine and become Sultan.
You-Blew-it,-Jafar---The-Beginning
Not a terrible plan, but, as we know, it doesn’t work out.

 

Give up? Be happy with what you have? Nope.
You-Blew-it,-Jafar---Golden-Snake-Staff
We mean, he could sell that golden snake staff and start a new life. It’s probably worth a lot.

 

It’s at this point that Jafar becomes straight up maniacal.
You-Blew-it,-Jafar---Obsession
Obsessed with the lamp and his own wish-fulfillment, Jafar goes on a bit of a power trip.

 

He’s willing to kill multiple people just to become Sultan and sit in the fancy Sultan chair.
You Blew it, Jafar - Fancy Sultan Chair
It’s a nice chair, but probably not worth murdering someone over.

 

Okay, Jafar has now totally lost it.
You-Blew-it,-Jafar---Totally-Lost-It
His insatiable need for power has completely taken over. He’s beyond any sort of rhyme or reason.

 

Case in point: He turns into a snake.
You-Blew-it,-Jafar---Scary-Snake
We didn’t think we could be more afraid of snakes, but this just did it.

 

Of course, Aladdin and crew totally beat Jafar at his own game.
You-Blew-it,-Jafar---Itty-Bitty-Living-Space
Phenomenal cosmic power; itty bitty living space.

 

So we say this to you Jafar: You blew it! Your life was great, but it wasn’t enough for your crazy, crazy greed. Let this be a lesson.
