The King and I contains examples of:
- Ear Worm: "Shall we dance? One, two, three, and... On a bright cloud of music, shall we fly? One, two, three, and..."
- Fair for Its Day: The Asian characters may seem slightly stereotypical today, but in 1951 (compared with the usual caricatures of Asians of the time), they were decidedly anti racist.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The King studying the Bible and telling Anna, "I think your Moses shall have been a fool." Five years after The King and I's Broadway premiere, Yul Brynner would play both the King in the movie and Ramesses (Moses' adversary) in The Ten Commandments.
- Memetic Mutation: "Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera!" (The real King Mongkut used this in his English versions of official documents all the time.)
"The King and I" 1999 musical contains these tropes:
- Animation Age Ghetto
- Big Lipped Alligator Moment: When the King sings "A Puzzlement" and the Conspicuous CGI statues attack him.
- Cliché Storm
- Ethnic Scrappy: Master Little.
