Rajah is Princess Jasmine's pet tiger. He is voiced by Frank Welker. Unlike Abu, he is not anthropomorphized, but is still able to understand human language and emotions, as seen when he is surprised by the revelation of Jasmine that she has never had a true friend (except for Rajah himself), or when he assists her in her escape from the palace. Rajah is uneasy towards Aladdin at first, but later warms up to him. Rajah also takes part in the battle against Jafar, but is turned into a tiger cub and imprisoned in a bird cage. He is returned to his original form at the end of the film after Aladdin finally defeats Jafar.
It is revealed in a children's book based on Aladdin that Jasmine adopted Rajah when she felt lonely without a friend and the Sultan gave her Rajah as a gift.
During the Sultan's meal in The Return of Jafar, Rajah chases Iago into the room, which makes everyone discover Iago is back. In the Aladdin TV series, Rajah mainly served as a minor recurring character, though the only major part he played was when he teamed up with Abu and Iago in undoing Sadira's spell when she magically switched places with Jasmine since only the memories of the animals were unaffected. In Aladdin and the King of Thieves, Rajah is seen carrying Jasmine's bridal veil. In Disney Princess Enchanted Tales: Follow Your Dreams, Rajah is seen delivering Jasmine her agenda. She later calls him to try to scare the children of the Royal Academy, but the children end up chasing Rajah and Jasmine into the mud and up a tree.
