!Disney Villians
[[folder:General]]
A group of classic Disney Villains. In the first game, a group of them conspire under [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent's]] leadership. They are trying to use TheHeartless for their own evil means. After that, however, they're far more independent.

Maleficent's original group includes [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Hades,]] [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Jafar,]] [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ursula,]] [[Disney/PeterPan Captain Hook,]] and [[TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Oogie Boogie]]. The second game introduces [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Hector Barbossa]], [[Disney/{{Mulan}} Shan-Yu]], [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]], and [[{{Tron}} the MCP]], who aren't aligned with Maleficent, although she attempts to recruit/manipulate a couple.
----
* EvilVersusEvil: They got into a hard competition with Organization XIII during the second game. Organization XIII was for quite a time one step ahead, but after [[spoiler:Maleficent and Pete joined forces with Sora, King Mickey, and their friends]], the Disney villains eventually became the winning side.
* LargeHam: Noted in each applicable entry, but it should be noted that the group from the original game (Maleficent, Captain Hook, Jafar, Oogie Boogie, Hades, and Ursula, plus the unaffiliated Clayton) might as well be called ''The Large Hams Band''.
* LegionOfDoom
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Villains of a Sort".
* UnwittingPawn: They believe they use the Heartless without knowing it's actually the Heartless who use them (or, to be exact, that the Heartless are only complying with them because their REAL leader instructed them to.)

![[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]]
[[quoteright:242:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Maleficent20CGI.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:242:"The truth can be most cruel, even amongst the closest of friends."]]
->"What in the world do you think you're prattling on about? Kingdom Hearts belongs to me! The Heart of all Kingdoms! The Heart of all that lives! A dominion fit to be called Kingdom Hearts must be my dominion!"
-->Voiced by: Toshiko Sawada (Japanese), Susanne Blakeslee (English)

The villain from ''{{Disney/Sleeping Beauty}}'', Maleficent is an evil fairy hellbent on taking over all worlds in existence. She poses a major threat early on in Sora's adventure, but her plan gets [[HijackedByGanon Hijacked By Xehanort]] before the climax. Unfortunately for Sora and co., you can't keep a good villain down for long...
-----
* AllThereInTheManual: The name of her raven familiar, Diablo, is only given in her film of origin, and never stated in the games so far.
* AntiHero: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes Type V]]. She becomes this in the latter half of [=KH2=]. Nothing about her changes except that she's working with Sora and the others for a common goal.
* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: ''Chain of Memories'' has the Organization commenting on how Maleficent's "death" merely banished her "somewhere else." Then, in ''[=KH2=]'', her crow {{familiar}} shows her cloak to the Good Fairies, who try to resist acknowledging her existence, but they cannot and this brings her back.
* BadassBoast: ''"You poor simple fools. Thinking you could defeat me! ''Me'', the Mistress of All Evil!"''
* BackFromTheDead: Not fully explained, see "AsLongAsThereIsEvil". She's just that talented.
* BigBad: Of her own world in ''Birth by Sleep'', as she was in [[SleepingBeauty the movie.]]
** BigBadDuumvirate: With Ansem in the original, though [[TheDragon the lesser of the two.]]
** BigBadEnsemble: With Xemnas in ''Kingdom Hearts II''.
** BigBadWannabe: ''Coded'' and ''3D''. While she's still a threat, with the full scope of Xehanort's plans revealed she's far from the main concern of the heroes now, and has nowhere near the influence or power she had in the first game. Nonetheless, [[TheDeterminator she's still determined to conquer the worlds for her own.]]
* CardCarryingVillain: The "Mistress of All Evil", and all.
* TheChessmaster: At least until her demise.
* CombatTropes
** BlackMagic / CastingAShadow
** BlackMage: In her Witch form.
** BreathWeapon: As a dragon.
** ColonyDrop
** GetBackHereBoss
** MagicStaff
** ShockAndAwe
** ShockwaveStomp: When in her dragon form.
** PlayingWithFire
** ScaledUp: You fight her dragon form in ''[=KH1=]'' - right before ThatOneBoss. To some, she's ThatOneBoss in her own right. She also uses it against Aqua.
** SquishyWizard: Whenever you fight her in her Witch form.
* DiminishingVillainThreat: See BigBad (and all the steps down from it) above.
* TheDragon: ''Literally'' turned into one for Ansem[[spoiler:, the Seeker of Darkness]] in the first game.
* EnemyMine: With Sora & co. during the war against Organization XIII.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Although her not killing Sora in ''Kingdom Hearts II'' qualified more under PragmaticVillainy, her not attacking Sora in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsCoded'' definitely qualifies under this trope, as apparently even the (self-proclaimed) Mistress of All Evil has qualms towards attacking Sora and company after they saved her life and thus "made it even", at least not immediately (even though it was technically Data-Riku who did the actual saving).
* EvilLaugh
* EvilMentor: To Riku.
* [[EvilSorcerer Evil Sorceress]]
* EyesOfGold: [[spoiler:A rare non-Xehanort example in the series. So far.]]
* TheFairFolk: The games didn't mention it (calling her a "sorceress") until her "origin story" in ''Birth by Sleep'', but she's an evil fairy.
* {{Familiar}}: Her [[RavensAndCrows raven]], who aided in her resurrection for VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII.
* TheHeavy: In VideoGame/KingdomHearts.
* LadyOfWar
* LargeHam
-->'''Maleficent:''' "You think you can defeat ME?! ''ME, THE MISTRESS OF ALL EVIL?!''"
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]: Or [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent]], depending on your view. She played Riku like a fiddle, and even with a VillainDecay inducing lack of resources in ''[=KH2=]'', she played events to the point that she became an asset in bringing down Organization XIII, establishing herself at the top once more.
* ObviouslyEvil: Only [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter Terra]] doesn't seem to see it.
* OnlyOneName
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: See ScaledUp. Just as in the movie, it's a giant, black dragon with green fire.
* [[TalkingToHimself Talking To Herself]]: Maleficent shares the same English voice actress as the Evil Queen and Lady Tremaine.
* TechnicolorFire: Her green dragon fire shows up with pretty much anything she does.
* WickedWitch
* YouShallNotPass: To the incoming Pureblood Heartless in the endgame of ''Kingdom Hearts II'', as well as to incoming Dusks earlier in the same game, both as a Type V AntiHero. She survives.

[[folder:Pete]]
!{{Pete}}
[[quoteright:280:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Pete.png]]
[[caption-width-right:280:"See, it don't matter how tough he is, once he's a Heartless he'll do as I say!"]]
->"Just wait! Nobody, and I do mean nobody, messes with The Mighty Pete!"
-->Voiced by: ToruOhira (Japanese), JimCummings (English)

[[MyFriendsAndZoidberg There is also Pete]]. Once a humble steamboat captain, Pete turned to mischief-making until he got out of hand and was banished. He met Maleficent during his inter-dimensional exile and acts as her loyal servant.
-----
* TheAce: A minor, villainous example, but an example nontheless. He has shown capable fighting ability, was controlling the heartless for a long time (possibly longer than his mistress, but that seems unlikely), apparently has a strong heart, has magical abilities, has experiance with explosives, can attack with cars, had enough swordplay experiance to become captain of Queen Minnie's Musketeers, was the responsible captain of a steamboat, is able to manipulate others (to a degree), and has hacked and used technology and glitches to try and rule the worlds in a journal.
* AntiHero: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes Type V]] at the same time as his boss. Like Maleficent, they only aided Sora and his friends during the game so that they could gain once the Organization XIII was toppled.
* BeardOfEvil: In the Country of Musketeers.
* BoisterousBruiser: At least his past-self, who ain't afraid to accept a fight when someone challenges him, whether it's Sora or his future-self. His future-self is to much of a coward to be this.
* BootstrappedLeitmotif: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QscpOLaF5sM Rowdy Rumble]], which in ''KingdomHeartsII'' was a generic mini-boss theme. This included, ''but was not exclusive to'', being played [[GoldfishPoopGang during every battle]] with Pete, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCEdURkWH18 except the final]]. In the following games, however, the theme is invariably tied to the boss fights with Pete and usually little else, if anything.
* CatsAreMean
* CharacterDevelopment: For better or for worse, he went from a well-meaning and essentially decent authority figure to {{Jerkass}} attention seeker to cowardly villain (though he still retains some of his mettle). It's shown that he longs for the old days of steam boat captaincy.
* ChronicVillainy: In the earliest time where he is seen as the true villain, "The Country of the Musketeers", he is arrested in the end by the Royal Musketeers. By the time Terra, Aqua, and Ventus arrive in Disney Town, presumably several years later, he seems to be seen as a relatively reasonable person, enough that it seems as though he was a ReformedCriminal. However, losing to Terra in a race leads to him once again undergoing a FaceHeelTurn. Depending on how one interprets Maleficent helping him out of the resulting PocketDimension, he may count as a less tragic version of DrivenToVillainy as well.
* CombatTropes
** BarrierWarrior
** CarFu: He knows some as Captain Dark and when you use his D-Link Terra, Aqua and Ven can too.
** FlunkyBoss: In ''3D'' where he has his henchmen the Beagle Boys, during his time as the Captain of the Royal Guard in the Country of the Musketeers.
** IKnowMaddenKombat: His battles involve [[MadeOfExplodium explosive bowling balls]].
** GoodOldFisticuffs
** GroundPound
** RecurringBoss
** RoyalRapier: In [[MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers Country of the Musketeers]] in ''3D''.
** ShockAndAwe: Can use D-Thundaga in Re:coded which also is an example of RideTheLightning.
** StoutStrength
** TeleportSpam: In Re:coded.
** ThrowDownTheBomblet: In [[MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers Country of the Musketeers]] in ''3D''.
** TrapMaster: Can summon rigged blox in Re:coded.
* DirtyCoward: Made clear in the Battle of Hollow Bastion, where he [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere left Maleficent for herself]] with the Nobodies. Subverted in the end when he was able to conquer his fears in order to [[spoiler:help Sora and Mickey gets some time to defeat Xemnas by holding back the Heartless]].
** KnowWhenToFoldEm: In all fairness to Pete, he probably is perfectly aware of the fact that he can't really hold his own all that well against Nobodies. He's only following Maleficent because the alternative is worse.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Was temporarily banished to a PocketDimension by Queen Minnie for being rude and preparing to attack her for not giving him the victor's prize of ice cream in Disney Town.
* TheDragon: To Maleficent.
* EnemyMine: Twice. His past self put aside his (misunderstood) difficulties with Sora, Donald, and Goofy in order to help them fight his future self, so that he could get his boat back. Later, his present self helped [[spoiler:Sora and the King against Xemnas and the Heartless]].
* EvilChancellor: He was this to Minnie in the past as Captain of the Royal Guard in "Country of the Musketeers".
* FatBastard
* FatCat
* FatIdiot
* GoKartingWithBowser: An interesting version in that despite his obvious, if only slight malevolence, he's still not a bad guy when you race him in Birth By Sleep, having seemingly repented from his villainous days in the Country of the Musketeers (detailed in ''3D''). In fact, it's the race (or rather the fact that he lost) that causes him to pull a FaceHeelTurn ([[ChronicVillainy again]]).
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: "Past-Pete" before his alliance with Maleficent and the Heartless.
* LargeHam: Particularly as CAPTAIN JUSTICE!!!
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Just like in the film, he has a line to this effect in "Country of the Musketeers" in ''3D''.
-->'''Captain Pete''': How ''dare'' you [[BigDamnHeroes thwart me]] [[JustInTime just in the nick of time!]]
* MascotMook: The credits state at the end that Pete is one.
* ManipulativeBastard: Not particularly good at it, but he it's how he sows Heartless throughout the World.
* NostalgiaFilter: InUniverse. He seems to long for the good old days of steamboat captaincy, but, given the TimeTravel to Timeless River and [[HumiliationConga what happens to him]], he's probably just thinking it's better than his later situations.
* OnlyOneName
* RetCon: In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', it was stated that King Mickey banished Pete to another dimension, presumably for doing something ''really'' bad, and Maleficent broke him out. In ''Birth By Sleep'', however, Pete only throws a hissy fit, and ''Queen Minnie'' temporarily banishes him to another dimension "until he cools down" from what seemed to be a preparation to attack her... for ice cream. While there, Maleficent breaks him out in return for his service.
* RightHandCat: ''Technically'' he's this to Maleficent, being a cat.
* {{Sentai}}: In ''Birth by Sleep''.
** Results in a MixAndMatch of GoodCostumeSwitch and EvilCostumeSwitch: He's both Captain Justice and Captain Dark.
* VideogameCrueltyPotential: During his boss fight in Timeless River, if you combo Past!Pete, he will launch into the air and make a shockwave upon landing, he will then get up and yell ''[[WhatTheHellHero What's that for!?!]]'' before going back into the fray. but it is a bit of a subversion, as it doesn't have any substantial effect on either Pete (Present!Pete recieves little damage if this is done).
* YouShallNotPass: In ''Kingdom Hearts II'', during the endgame. He survives.

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/200px-Captain_Barbossa_KHII_1939.png]]
[[caption-width-right:200: "We are cursed men, Miss Turner."]]
-> "You best start believin' in ghost stories, Miss Turner. For, ya see, tonight -- you're in one!"
-->Voiced by: Haruhiko Jo (Japanese), Brian George (English), GeoffreyRush (English - Australian release)

Captain of the Black Pearl and leader of the undead pirates. The medallions' curse keeps Captain Barbossa and his men in a kind of limbo between life and death. Their true form is revealed in the moonlight, and it's a terrifying sight to see.
----
* AffablyEvil
* EvilLaugh
* LargeHam
* MasterSwordsman
* NiceHat
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: The first of two live action disney villains to make it into Kingdom Hearts. Like all of Port Royal, he is rendered realistically proportioned and looks like a real person, in contrast to the cartoony looks of Sora, Donald, and Goofy.
* TheOtherDarrin: Played straight and averted. Barbossa was voiced by Brian George for the initial English release of the game, but was replaced with GeoffreyRush (his original actor) for the Australian release.
* {{Pirate}}: How did you miss ''this one''?
** GhostPirate: DemBones included.
** TalkLikeAPirate
* SneakAttack: He fights alongside an Illuminator heartless which makes the area pitch black, allowing Barbossa to attack from the dark.
* SteppingStoneSword: Sora can step on Barbossa's blade as a reaction command then show him that against him GunsAreWorthless.
* SwordAndGun

![[{{Fantasia}} Chernabog]]
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/350px-Chernabog_KH_9384.png]]
Chernabog is a gigantic, muscular, humanoid demon. His skin is entirely colored black, and he is so large that Sora is roughly the size of his head. His head sports two curved horns, he has four fangs in his mouth, and his eyes are a glowing yellow. He has enormous, black, bat-like wings, and his wingspan is larger than he is tall. Chernabog is always seen trapped from the knees-down in a volcano.
----
* [[spoiler:AnimateDead]]: [[spoiler:Sends ghosts and souls of the dead after Riku to weaken him in Dream Drop Distance.]]
* BreathWeapon
* DemonLordsAndArchDevils
* EvilOverlord
* EyesOfGold
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: In ''Kingdom Hearts''. His appearance makes more sense in ''3D''.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom
* OnlyOneName
* PlayingWithFire
* {{Satan}}
* StationaryBoss
* VillainSong[=/=]{{Leitmotif}}: Night On Bald Mountain. Notable for being the only Disney boss to get his own theme in the series. He did not have it in the Japanese version of ''Kingdom Hearts'' though. [[spoiler:But, he does have it in Dream Drop Distance.]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Chernabog was to be the original FinalBoss and embodiment of all darkness of the first game, the endgame originally being a climb up the slopes of Bald Mountain to fight him, with the light inside Kingdom Hearts taking the place of the dawn. ExecutiveMeddling and console limitations put a kibosh in the plan, but the model was kept around to be used as the surprise boss.

[[caption-width-right:138:"How dare you! I am a righteous man. God and evil shall be made clear... once the gypsies face the fires of judgement!"]]
-> "Now you will be judged...just like the rest!"
-->Voiced by: Shozo Sasaki (Japanese), CoreyBurton (English)
A ruthless and self-righteous justice minister who is Quasimodo's reluctant guardian, seeing the evil he commits to be for the greater good.
----
* AbusiveParent: Or at least an abusive version of TheCaretaker for Quasimodo.
* CoolSword: Brandishes one in cutscenes but is unfortunately TheUnfought.
* DisneyVillainDeath: Falls off Notre Dame into the fire below while LaughingMad in Riku's scenario but gets the implied smiting by God himself that he did in the movie in Sora's.
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide
* EvilOldFolks
* FamousLastWords: "Now you will be judged, just like the rest!" in Riku's story
* HangingJudge
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In Riku's story, he prepares to fight Riku himself, and summons the Wargoyle, which flies overhead and causes vibrations, making Frollo lose his footing on the guard-rail and fall.
** However due to him not visibly trying to keep his balance, and him LaughingMad as he fell, it may have been intentional
* IfICantHaveYou
* KnightTemplar
* LaughingMad: Read above.
* ManipulativeBastard
* NonHumanSidekick: The Wargoyle, which replaces Captain Phoebus as his {{Dragon}}.
* NotQuiteDead: ''[[OhCrap Yeah...]]'', even after all the effort put in to stop him, that only happened in "that world's dream" meaning that [[FridgeHorror he is still alive and well, doing what he does in the real Cite de las Cloches.]]
** However, the worlds tend to dream of past events, so it may well be that his death already happened, shortly before the world fell to darkness.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain
* SinisterMinister: Although he seems more intent on law (or his interpretation of it) than religion.
* SummonMagic: The darkness in his heart allows him to call Dream Eaters which he believes is a divine power granted by God.
* TheOtherDarrin: Had to be done, as Tony Jay passed away by the time the game was announced, much less being edited for American audiences.
* TheUnfought

-> "Blasted gorillas! I'll hunt down every last one of them!"
-->Voiced by: BanjoGinga (Japanese), {{BRIAN BLESSED}} (English)
A veteran hunter. He acts as Jane's guide on her expedition to the jungle. He thinks of animals only as prey, and dreams of the money to be made selling gorillas to zoos back at home.
----
* BadassMustache
* DualBoss: He fights side by side with a Stealth Sneak Heartless in his battle which proves to be his undoing as it crushes him when it dies.
** HorseOfADifferentColor
* EgomaniacHunter: Even moreso than in the movie, where his plan was to capture and sell the animals -- here, [[ForTheEvulz he just wants to kill them]].
* LargeHam: Just look at who voices him.

[[folder:CLU]]
![[Film/TronLegacy CLU]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/200px-CLU_KH3D_3353.png]]
[[caption-width-right:200:"I took the System to its maximum potential. And now, you see the applications at my disposal!"]]

-> "You have a little item called the Keyblade. Hand it over, and I'll change Rinzler back into Tron."
-->Voiced by: Tsutomu Isobe (Japanese), FredTatasciore (English)
CLU is a program created by Kevin Flynn in his likeness to oversee the development of the Grid. However, following his programming to create a "perfect system", CLU betrayed Flynn and took the Grid under his undisputed control, while also issuing the complete annihilation of the [=ISOs=], leaving Quorra as the sole survivor.
----
* AIIsACrapshoot: Subverted like in the film. CLU is still following his programming to try to create the perfect system. The problem is that Kevin made him when he was more naïve, and before he discovered the [=ISOs=], so CLU's plan is equally naïve. Therefore, it isn't CLU who changed; it's Kevin.
* AntiMutiny: See above.
* ArchEnemy: To Kevin Flynn.
* ArtificialHuman
* BadassBoast: "I created the perfect system! And now, you see [[TheUsualAdversaries the applications at my disposal]]!"
* BeardOfEvil: Which, ironically, is also Kevin Flynn's former BadassBeard from when he was at the age when he created CLU.
* BlueEyes
* TheCorrupter: Corrupted The Grid and also [[spoiler:turned TRON into Rinzler]]. Not to mention the entire process of [[BrainwashedAndCrazy rectification]].
* CreativeSterility: Why he has to [[{{Brainwashed}} rectify]] programs instead of make new ones, and can't really think outside of his predefined mindset originally created by Kevin. Basics are unable to think outside of those parameters, unlike "Users" or [=ISOs=], and, unlike Users, cannot create, only repurpose what is already there.
* DeadlyDisc: Wields one, like everyone else in The Grid.
* DisneyVillainDeath: Subverted. He tries to jump a gap, and it looks like he will fall. However, he manages to make the jump, only to get offed a minute later.
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: As shown by his obsession with the Commantis Dream Eater.
* EnemyWithout: To Kevin Flynn.
* EvilOverlord: He rules the entire Grid with an iron fist.
* EvilTwin: Of Kevin Flynn, especially when he was younger.
* FantasticRacism: Hates the [=ISOs=] for being imperfect and unpredictable.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Though it drops completely when he hits his VillainousBreakdown.
* FunWithAcronyms: His name isn't "Clu", it's "CLU", which stands for "Codified Likeness Utility". It's unknown if, like in the original film, this is the second version of it.
* GoneHorriblyRight: Kevin built him as help to create the "perfect system" around the time of the inception of the TRON system itself. The only good thing that can be said about the result is that [[{{Dystopia}} it did work.]]
* KarmaHoudini: He manages to avoid defeat in Sora's story, making the BittersweetEnding sadder. However, it's likely that he still met the same defeat he does in the film in that case, just without Sora's involvement.
* KnightTemplar: He will do anything to create the "perfect system".
* LargeHam
* LatexSpaceSuit
* LittleNo: After Kevin tricks him into taking the wrong disc.
* MoralSociopathy
* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Complete with his Black Guards and Sentries PuttingOnTheReich.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Along with Barbossa, he is one of the only two live-action villains to be featured in the series.
* NotQuiteDead: Same situation as Frollo, he was not defeated in the real version of The Grid, so he could be back in later installments.
* OnlyOneName: Unless his acronym name could be counted as three, he's like most programs in this respect.
* ThePerfectionist
* PermaStubble: Even moreso than many other examples, since, as a program, his avatar is unchanging.
* APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Due to the static nature of the Grid since Kevin's exile, CLU and all other remaining programs there are at least approximately one thousand cycles old, with "cycle" meaning "Grid-year".
* RingsOfDeath
* SadisticChoice: He foists one of these on Sora: the Keyblade in exchange for turning Rinzler back into Tron.
* TronLines
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: Betrayed Kevin Flynn and took over The Grid.
* TheUnfought: Justified if one takes into account the source material. CLU can NoSell a direct disc hit, and even the game implies that only Kevin in the Grid or Sam out in the outside world could defeat him. Therefore, it's highly probable that neither Sora nor Riku would be even able to scratch him.
* VillainousBreakdown: After being lectured by Kevin Flynn, and even more after learning of the disc swap that caused his defeat.
* VillainousBSOD: After Riku defeats the Commantis.
* VisionaryVillain: He wants to create the perfect system.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He wants to bring the world to its maximum potential. Unfortunately, that means killing everything that's imperfect.

A vain woman who is convinced she is the fairest of all. When the Spirit of the Magic Mirror revealed Snow White to be fairer, the Queen decided to take the maiden's life.
----
* FairestOfThemAll
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen
* HighCollarOfDoom
* NoNameGiven: She's only ever known as "the Queen".
* TheUnfought
* [[TalkingToHimself Talking To Herself]]: The Queen, Lady Tremaine, and Maleficent share the same English voice actress.
* VainSorceress
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: She's last seen giving Snow White the poisoned apple. After that, the Magic Mirror simply states that she is "gone."

-->Voiced by: WataruTakagi (Japanese), FrankWelker(English)
He is one of Dr. Jumba's genetic experiments. His "primary function" is to short out electrical devices.
----
* AdmiringTheAbomination: Jumba act like this torwards all his experiments, including Sparky.
* AxeCrazy: Due to his programming.
* IcyBlueEyes
* LightningGun: Can posses one.
* PsychoElectro
* SatelliteCharacter: The only reason he comes up in the game is because Jumba takes offense to Terra not being sure if Stitch is evil. Aside from this Sparky isn't that relevant to the story.
* RideTheLightning
* ShockAndAwe
* SlasherSmile
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: After Terra defeats him, he reverts back to pod form and is not mentioned again.
* YouAreNumberSix: He's only ever known as Experiment 221. He's only ever called "Sparky" by Lilo, who doesn't even show up in the game due to there being no arrival on Earth.

-->Voiced by: UnshoIshizuka (Japanese), KevinMichaelRichardson (English)
A very large captain in the Galactic Federation's army. He takes his responsibilities seriously, but his hotheaded attitude results in frequent failures.
----
* FantasticRacism: Toward Stitch.
* HeroAntagonist: Though he does seem to become progressively less reasonable and heroic over the course of the Deep Space story.
* GoodOldFisticuffs
* IAmBigBoned: When he comes to get the prisoners, Stitch makes a remark in his gibberish language, prompting Gantu to yell "I'M JUST BIG-BONED!".

-> "Did you forget who you're talking to? I am the Lord of the Dead!"
-->Voiced by: Kyusaku Shimada (Japanese), James Woods (English)
Hot-headed literally and emotionally, he will stop at nothing to see the end of Hercules. He rules the Underworld where he controls monsters and oversees souls of the dead.
----
* BatmanGambit: How he used Sora's concern for Meg in order to fool him to open the Underworld Tournament Cups.
* TheBerserker: During combat or if someone pisses him off.
** In ''Chain of Memories'', his enemy card effect is even called Berserk.
* BoisterousBruiser: "Oh, yeah. This is gonna be good".
* TheChessmaster: Even has a chessboard in his place, with Hercules, Zeus, Cerberus, and himself as pawns.
* In the Manga he also has pawns of the Hydra, and Megara
* DeadpanSnarker
* FairPlayVillain: Played with -- he mostly pits Hercules against opponents in straight-up fights, but he's not above bending the rules of the Coliseum, and by the end of ''II'' when his VillainousBreakdown hits, he declares outright "I'm done playing by the rules / Now we're gonna play by ''my'' rules!"
* FauxAffablyEvil
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: When he meets Aqua for the first time he calls her "bluejay" walks up close to her leans in and examines her. if you notice his eyes move down from her face, then to her chest, and then back to her face.
* [[IHaveYourWife I Have Your Girlfriend]]: Megara. "Now, we're gonna play by ''my'' rules."
* KarmaHoudini: Even when put through similar events to the Hercules movie, Hades escapes the Well of Souls ''immediately''. A combination of PunchclockVillain and AsLongAsThereIsEvil; he never ''quite'' goes over the MoralEventHorizon.
* LargeHam
* LaughablyEvil
* ManipulativeBastard
* OffhandBackhand: Does this to Sora in ''II''. And it's more like an Offhand ''flick''.
* OnlyOneName: Although this is less because of Disney not making a surname for him, and more because of ClassicalMythology.
* PhysicalGod
* PlayingWithFire: What did you expect?
** FireBalls
* ThisCannotBe[=/=]PunctuatedForEmphasis: His defeat quote. "This. Isn't. Happening!" You'd think he'd stop saying it when you ''keep'' defeating him.
* SixthRangerTraitor: He gradually pretty much abandons the rest of the villains. Surely enough, he's the only one not to need to be [[BackFromTheDead revived]][=/=][[SealedEvilInACan released]] come ''II'', and does his own thing in Olympus to no ill reprecussions, though he does still respect Maleficent a ''little'', as he accepts assistance from Pete on her behalf.
* VillainousBreakdown: He usually calms down fairly quickly, but in his final showdown against Sora & co, he had a completely epic one before trying to fry them alive.
** ''"What is so funny you imbeciles?! How dare you get a happy ending?!'' '''HOW DARE YOU?!!"'''
* WouldHitAGirl: More like "Would set a girl on fire" (or try to, anyway).

-> "And the brat's friends are the king's lackeys. Swoggle me eyes, they're all bilge rats by the look of them.
-->Voiced by: ChikaoOhtsuka[=/=]NaoyaUchida (Japanese), CoreyBurton (English)
Captain Hook is the leader of the pirates who sail the waters of Neverland, and Peter Pan's arch nemesis.
----
* BadassNormal: He has no supernatural powers, darkness or otherwise, and uses only his sword and bombs to fight. He's still one of the highest ranking villains in Maleficent's crew, and his boss fights are usually among the tougher ones.
* BlingOfWar: He wears an expensive red pirate coat with a big hat to fit his captain status.
* CoolBoat: In the first game Riku hitches a ride on it to cross into other worlds.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Yes he's a bumbling, cowardly fool who can't even beat a kid, but when pushed enough...[[ThatOneBoss oh boy]], he sure knows how to slit people apart with that sword and hook.
* DirtyCoward
* TheDragon: He seemed to be this to Maleficent in the first game, only out-ranked by her and Jafar and, later, Riku.
* FalseReassurance
* HookHand
* LargeHam
* LastNameBasis: Everyone calls him "Captain Hook" or "Hook". His given name (James) isn't even well known by most audiences.
* MasterSwordsman
* ManipulativeBastard
* NotSoHarmless: Just because he wimps out when the Croc visits, it doesn't mean he can't fight with a sword.
* TheOtherDarrin: In the Japanese version of the first game, he was voiced by ChikaoOhtsuka. In ''Birth by Sleep'' he was voiced by NaoyaUchida.
* {{Pirate}}
** TalkLikeAPirate
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: Disguised as presents just like in the movie.
* UnstoppableRage: After he has his ass handed to him by Sora long enough, he'll snap, turn berserk during the middle part of the boss fight, and then chase after Sora like a madman, ignoring his own swordsman professionalism in exchange for wild, brutal swings in an attempt to kill him.

-> "Genie, my final wish! I want you to make me an all powerful GENIE! "
-->Voiced by: Akira Takarada (Japanese), Jonathan Freeman (English)
He is the royal vizier of Agrabah. Two-faced and cunning, Jafar seeks the demise of Aladdin and to rule as sultan of Agrabah.
----
* AGodAmI
* AnIcePerson: Has an ice spell.
* AndIMustScream: Imprisoned in a lamp for a year between ''Kingdom Hearts'' and ''Kingdom Hearts II''.
* AnimalMotifs: Cobras.
* BeardOfEvil
* DirtyCoward: He was portrayed as this in the manga. While something of a second-in-command for Maleficent during the games, the manga makes him nothing more than a snivelling, bootlicking wimp who's just waiting for his chance to stab Maleficent in the back. The manga version of Maleficent is aware of his cowardly nature, and only keeps him around because of his knowledge of Agrabah.
* TheDragon: Replaced with Hook and Riku after his defeat in the initial ''Kingdom Hearts'', to Maleficent's BigBad. He, too, is eventually replaced after his defeat and imprisonment.
* EvilChancellor: Initially Royal Vizier of Agrabah.
* EvilSorcerer
* TheEvilGenius
* FrickinLaserBeams: Launches one from his staff as his primary attack.
* GetBackHereBoss: Spends his entire pre-genie boss fight in ''Kingdom Hearts'' just moving around the cave.
* GoodColorsEvilColors
* HoistByHisOwnPetard
** BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: He wanted to be a genie. He didn't take into account that that means he can be imprisoned in a lamp.
* JackassGenie: In the sequel.
* LargeHam
* LeanAndMean
* MagicStaff: His signature Cobra headed staff.
* MythologyGag: Most battles with his genie form have him floating over a pit of lava attacking you while you have to attack and destroy his lamp that Iago is flying around with to keep it away from you. This is a direct reversal of the climax of ''Return of Jafar'', where Jafar trapped the heroes in a lava pit and Iago performed a HeelFaceTurn to try and get the lamp to them so they could destroy it.
* PlayingWithFire: As a genie.
* OneWingedAngel: Turns into a red genie in the end of ''Kingdom Hearts''' stay in Agrabah, and keeps it for ''Kingdom Hearts II''.
* ScaledUp: Averted - he never uses his cobra transformation from the movie.
* ShouldersOfDoom
* SlasherSmile: In the manga.
* SmugSnake
* TheStarscream: Also in the manga; he wants to use his genie powers to overthrow Maleficent.

Jafar's boisterous and cunning parrot. He's Jafar's eyes and ears for everything going on in Agrabah
----
* TheAtoner: In the second game.
* ButtMonkey
* CelebrityVoiceActor: Gilbert Gottfried, as usual. Notable, in that he's one of the few actors from the Disney movies to [[TheOtherDarrin revoice his character]].
* DeadpanSnarker
* DirtyCoward: Until his...
* HeelFaceTurn: Though he's still proves to be a DirtyCoward in the sequel despite being the heroes' friends.
* HeroicSacrifice: Luckily, he survived.

[[folder:Ice Titan]]
!Ice Titan
One of the Titans from ''Hercules'', fought in the Coliseum.
----
* AnIcePerson: Duh.
* BeamSpam: It fires icicle shards as its main attack, and fires a ''lot'' of them.
* BreathWeapon: Which can turn you into a HumanPopsicle.
* BonusBoss
* DemBones
* {{Expy}}: Hades employs the "Ice Colossus", a weaker clone of the Ice Titan, in ''Birth By Sleep'' (the genuine article is still under lock and key at that point).
* LevelGrinding: A famous use for it, as each time you deflect an icicle you get 24 exp. You're likely to get more exp from the icicles than you do for killing the Ice Titan itself.
* [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Only Known By Its Title]]: Its name, Hydros, is never mentioned in any of the games.
* SleepModeSize: After Sora beats it, it loses so much mass it has to run away before he steps on it.
* TennisBoss: Ice Titan is out of range of Sora's normal attacks, so you have to deflect its icicles at its head to knock it down.
* TheVoiceless
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Julius]]
![[RunawayBrain Julius]]
A gigantic monstrous version of Pete created by Dr. Frankenollie that Sora and Riku encounter in Traverse Town.
----

* [[spoiler:DePower]]: [[spoiler:While electrified, he can lock away the commands used by Sora and Riku.]]
* ElementalPunch: Electric version.
* {{Expy}}: Of Pete.
* FrankensteinsMonster
* HandicappedBadass: Has a peg leg.
* InterfaceScrew: [[spoiler:If he is electrified, he can temporarily lock away one of your commands when he climbs, and then jumps down from the building, bouncing towards you in the arena you fight him in. Hope the command isn't Cure[=/=]ra[=/=]ga]]
* LightningBruiser
* ShockAndAwe
* TheUnexpected: Unlike some of the other reveals and characters in ''3D'', virtually nobody expected to see Julius, least of all as the secret boss.
* UnskilledButStrong: His attacks are basic, but very effective.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Using punches, elbow drops, charging tackles, and a punch barrage close to a spinning clothesline.

[[caption-width-right:300:"Impossible! Pshah! He has no actual feelings—only destructive instincts I have carefully chosen for him. Or perhaps you need another demonstration of my evil geniusness!"]]
-> "I am innocent scientist who created galaxy's most destructive -- er, ''constructive'' species of all time."
-->Voiced by: ShozoIizuka (Japanese), David Ogden Stiers (English)
A self-proclaimed "evil genius," he is arrested for illegal genetic experimentation and now serves time in a cell within the Turo Prison Block.
----
* AdmiringTheAbomination: More specifically, admiring himself for creating experiments, and then admiring the destructive power they have.
* AFatherToHisMen: After Sparky is beaten, Jumba grabs his Dehydrated experiment and comforts it.
* CardCarryingVillain: He calls ''himself'' an EvilGenius.
* EvilGenius
* ForTheEvulz
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: While not ''quite'' as pathetic as Pete, he's still arguably the least evil and menacing of the Disney villains thus far. The fact that he ends up pulling a HeelFaceTurn in [[LiloAndStitch his original continuity]] may have something to do with this.
* LargeHam
* LaughablyEvil
* MadScientist
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Though to be fair, we don't know the specifications for earning a doctorate on whatever planet he comes from.

![[Disney/SnowWhite The Magic Mirror]]

-> "The queen is gone, and my work is done. Adieu, o victorious one."
-->Voiced by: Tamio Oki (Japanese), CoreyBurton (English)
A spirit who appears within the magic mirror at the queen's behest and answers all questions with the truth.
----
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: When not driven insane by one method or another, the Mirror seems personable enough, if cryptic. In fact, both of the battles (with Terra and with Aqua) seem to be due to it being corrupted by outside forces.
* BreathWeapon[=/=]PlayingWithFire: Inside the mirror.
* DoppelgangerSpin: The trick is to spot the one that's [[spoiler:smiling]].
* GracefulLoser: His only reaction to defeat is a rather bored "How unfortunate."
* MagicMirror
* RhymesOnADime
* TookALevelInBadass: Forced upon him by the Evil Queen, making his spirit quite the boss fight inside the mirror.

-> "We don't need users."
-->Voiced by: Ikuya Sawaki (Japanese), CoreyBurton (English)
Instead of working for the users, the MCP is planning to take over the system for himself. By refusing to follow the users' orders and trying to enact his evil plan, he's causing chaos among the other programs
----
* AIIsACrapshoot
* BossBanter: He doesn't attack on his own (he kinda can't), so rather than fight, he taunts you during the battle. And he never. Shuts. ''Up''!
-->"Insignificant user!"
-->"Is that the best a user can do?"
-->"I can repair that data..."
-->"Eliminate all threats!"
** Half of that is true, he DOES never shut up, but he does attack with the sheilds that protect him and by electrifying them, slamming them down, and shooting FricknLaserBeams out of them.
* PivotalBoss
* TalkingToHimself: The MCP and Sark are both voiced by Corey Burton.
* VillainOverride: Does this to [[TheDragon Sark]] in the final battle, giving many of his functions to him.
* WeCanRuleTogether: He attempted this on Tron. It didn't work; instead Tron takes over.

-> "Nobody disrespects me! NOBODY!"
-->Voiced by: Hiroshi Hatanaka (Japanese), Ken Page (English)
An evil bag of bugs who loves gambling with dice and dreams of causing trouble for Jack in Halloween Town. In ''Kingdom Hearts'' he steals a heart that Jack and Finklestien create to control the Heartless, but [[spoiler:uses their power too much and succumbs to the darkness]]. In ''Chain of Memories'' he does the same thing as last time except it's a memory potion. In ''Kingdom Hearts II'', he is resurrected by Maleficent so they can turn Santa Claus into a heartless.
----
* BackFromTheDead: Maleficent brings him back; he's an UngratefulBastard.
* BondVillainStupidity: He always uses traps in his attempts to kill Sora, Jack, Donald, and Goofy, since he doesn't quite have the guts to take care of them directly. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that he's a pretty bad fighter in close combat.
* TheBrute
* DirtyCoward
* EvilLaugh
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Unlike most of the other villains in the series, Oogies deaths are rather graphic when you think about it. His insides are essentially coming out while his skin is coming undone and he is yelling in agony.
* FauxAffablyEvil
* ForTheEvulz
* TheGambler: But he sucks at gambling.
* TheOtherDarrin: Thankfully averted as Ken Page still does Oogies voice, and sounds like he's still having fun with it.
* LargeHam
* NoCureForEvil: Averted, by rolling a certain number with his dice he can activate a machine that he uses to heal himself, this is also true for his boss fight in ''Chain of Memories''.
* OneWingedAngel: when he merges with his manor.
* PuzzleBoss
* ScaryBlackMan: His voice actor, anyway.
* UngratefulBastard: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], in that he doesn't remember Maleficent, let alone her resurrecting him, due to the side-effects of said resurrection; however, that doesn't change the fact that he was a bastard already.
* VillainousBreakdown: "Nobody disrespects me! NOBODY!!"

--> Voiced by: Sumie Ozawa (Japanese), TressMacNeille (English)
A queen of Wonderland who lives in a castle with decks and decks of card soldiers. Selfish and short-tempered, she beheads anyone who crosses her. She thinks Alice tried to steal her heart.
----
* AdiposeRex
* FlunkyBoss: She's no threat, its her card soldiers you have to look out for.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: if struck in the boss fight, she flips upside-down revealing these.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen
* HarmlessVillain: The Queen herself is useless in combat, her Card Soldiers rely on ZergRush tactics and are still pathetic, and she has no part in any of Maleficent's plans, staying confined to Wonderland and not doing anything malicious there other than being a petty {{Jerkass}}.
* LargeHam
* OffhandBackhand: If the rim of the booth she is sitting in is mounted during her boss fight, she does a ''really'' weak version of one.
* PimpedOutDress
* StaffOfAuthority: It's not really a staff though, it's more of a lollipop shaped like a heart.

-> "Tenacious little bugs! Your time is up! Prepare for de-resolution!"
-->Voiced by: Tetsuo Kanao (Japanese), CoreyBurton (English)
A powerful program who doesn't serve any user — just the MCP. Commander Sark is pretty harsh to any program that tries to resist his master's power.
----
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Thanks to the MCP.
* DeadlyDisc
* TheDragon: To the MCP.
* EvilCounterpart: Of Tron.
* NeverSayDie: See the above quote. Justified, seeing as they're computer programs, and derezzing is the same as dying for them.
* OnlyOneName
* PowerupLetdown: Despite growing to gigantic proportions, Sark is actually quite laughable in his second form. He loses most of his mobility, his [[VillainTeleportation "Initiating data transfer!"]], and his attacks are easily telegraphed. In fact, by simply ''running away from him'', Sora can [[OneHitKO knock him out effortlessly]] via [[ActionCommands Reaction Commands]].
* SizeShifter
* TalkingToHimself: Has the same voice actor as the MCP, his master.
* TeleportSpam

-> "You're in trouble again. But this time daddy isn't here to save you."
-->Voiced by: Haruhiko Jo (Japanese), James Horan (English)
Scar is Simba's evil uncle. Scar was always jealous of his older brother Mufasa, and killed him so that he could become king of the Pride Lands.
----
* BackFromTheDead: His darkness was so strong, it helped him to come back as a Heartless after Simba killed him. When he died a second time, he came back again as a ghost. Later, his ghosts merged into the giant-sized Groundshaker Heartless, showing just how much darkness Scar had lodged in that callous heart of his.
* TheCaligula
* CastingAShadow
* ElementalPunch: Lots of them as a Heartless.
* EldritchAbomination: As Groundshaker. Damn, that thing is even bigger than Franchise/{{Godzilla}} himself.
* EvilGloating: Which ultimately gets him in trouble...
* EvilPrince
* EvilUncle
* FauxAffablyEvil
* FisherKing
* GoodScarsEvilScars: His pink gash over his left eye is an Evil Scar that earned his nickname.
* HiveMind[=/=]BigDumbBody: As Groundshaker, he has two bodies. The smaller body sits on top of the larger one and controls it.
* LargeHam
* MadeOfEvil: Once he became a Heartless. Put it this way -- the only other person who retained their original appearance after turning into a Heartless was Ansem (and even then, Ansem needed DemonicPossession to retain his original appearance, Scar didn't even need to possess anyone to retain it)! Scar had even more darkness in his heart than even Xehanort did !
* ManipulativeBastard
* OneWingedAngel: As mentioned above, the Groundshaker Heartless is technically his final form.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: His real name isn't actually "Scar", it's Prince Taka. That said, nobody ever calls him anything but Scar.
* PantheraAwesome
* ScarsAreForever
* ShockwaveStomp: As Groundshaker.
* SmugSnake
* TheWormThatWalks: His many ghosts all merge to form the Groundshaker.

Shan-Yu is the leader of the Hun army, and plans to attack and take over China (The Land of Dragons in game). He is large and burly, and wields a blade with zigzag shaped edges. His eyes and ears over China is his pet falcon, Hayabusa. Hayabusa appears as an ominous warning to others that Shan-Yu and his army are approaching.
----
* AnimalMotif: Hawks or raptor birds
* AttackAnimal: His bird Hayabusa.
* BadassLonghair: manages combine this with BaldOfEvil with his monk-like hair cut.
* BattleAura
* {{Berserker}}
* BlackEyesOfCrazy
* BossBanter: this makes a large part of his speaking role
--> "You think you can overpower ''ME''!!??"
* CoolSword: It appears to be a very large kris.
** BladeLock: A reaction command you can do with him.
** GoodWeaponEvilWeapon: Definitely an evil weapon.
* EvilLaugh
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: In the Manga, he makes a deal with Xigbar in exchange for power, and when he fails and pleads for more power from Xigbar. Xigbar comes to the conclusion that he isn't worth the trouble of giving a chance and promptly ''Shoots him in the head, POINT BLANK''. What makes even worse is the fact that even Sora winces at it once it is done.
** BoomHeadshot: Again, only in the Manga.
* FourStarBadass
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: There's no word on what his motives for invading with the Heartless are, nor does he have much dialogue and screentime. He's defined by the threat he poses. However, dialogue with the Emperor and knowledge of the film of origin implies that he might have been using them to try to take over and destroy China.
* GeniusBruiser: Manages to command and Organize Heartless with his military expertise ''alone'', sneak heartless into the ranks of Shang's army, tricks Sora and co., and also puts up a good fight.
* GoodEyesEvilEyes
* KneelBeforeZod: Aside from his battle quotes, it's his only spoken line in the game, and it is awesome.
* ShockwaveStomp
* SpinAttack
* TalkingToHimself: Corey Burton also voices Frollo, The MCP, and Sark to name a few.
* TheOtherDarrin: He is voiced by CoreyBurton, who voices a bunch of other characters in the series.

Lady Tremaine is mother by blood of Anastasia and Drizella. Using Cinderella as a maid, she will do anything to ensure her two daughters' own success.
----
* CatsAreMean: [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Lucifer]].
* KarmaHoudini: Her famous status of this in the original movies is actually avoided here, as [[spoiler:her last scene features her, Anastasia, and Druzella presumably ''killed'' by an Unversed. Seeing as that same Unversed was attacking Cinderella while the three of them stood by ''laughing'',]] this is a VERY satisfying fate for them.
* LastNameBasis: She's only known as "Lady Tremaine", as in the films.
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]
* NeverSayDie: The final fate of Tremaine and her daughters is, according to Aqua, "The Darkness in their hearts overtook them."
** Please note that Aqua is actually saying that Tremaine pretty much brought it on herself, as the Unversed that may have [[spoiler:killed her]] was created from her hatred.
* ParentalFavoritism: If it were possible, ''Birth by Sleep'' actually pushes this trope even further.
* RightHandCat: Who's even a boss battle!
* SmugSnake
* [[TalkingToHimself Talking To Herself]]: Lady Tremaine is voiced by Susanne Blakeslee, the same voice actress who voiced Maleficent and the Evil Queen.

A sea witch, Ursula was once a senior member of King Triton's court. However, she was banished for her love of Black Magic. Ursula has two pet eels, Flotsam and Jetsam, whom she refers to as her "poopsies".
----
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Twice, once during each of her lives before her defeats.
* BackFromTheDead: In VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII, everyone does notice how weird her revival is, but they have a theory that it relates to her mastery of the powers of darkness.
** Subverted in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance''. She is brought back as the tutorial boss, and appears to remember her previous defeats. However, the journal reveals that she is merely a phantom.
* BerserkButton: Ursula [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever grows to giant size]] after Sora kills her {{Mooks}} [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Flotsam and Jetsam]].
* BreathWeapon
* CombatTentacles: Of course!
* DealWithTheDevil: Offers one to Ariel in both VideoGame/KingdomHearts and VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII. In the latter case, she was faking a HeelFaceTurn and wanted to give the deal as a gesture of her new found "good will".
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Only this time, it was by having the trident being hurled into her. Incidentally, this was originally how Ursula was going to be defeated in an early draft of the original film.
* LargeHam
* MakingASplash
* MamaBear: To Flotsam and Jetsam.
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]

* ProngsOfPoseidon: When she has king Triton's trident anyway.

* KnightOfCerebus: In-universe, the ''Kingdom Hearts'' universe was a nice happy multiverse of Disney characters living in peace until Master Xehanort showed up.

An elderly Keyblade Master, he was once a noble and wise man, if somewhat shifty. However, in his quest to unravel the mysteries of the Keyblade and its role in the fate of the worlds, he delved too deep into darkness and now seeks the power of Kingdom Hearts to cause an apocalypse ForScience. He's effectively the BigBad of the franchise, as his schemes and his various incarnations fuel the main conflicts behind almost every game.

** DishingOutDirt: Raises pillars of earth to launch you into the air in ''Birth By Sleep'', as well as the massive pillar on which he fights [[spoiler:Terra]].

** KungFuWizard: As [[BonusBoss No Heart]], whose fighting style is implied to be Master Xehanort's in his younger days, Xehanort was both a potent spellcaster and a first-class LightningBruiser in his youth, demonstrating not only advanced magic and swordplay but also transforming his Keyblade to enhance his punches and kicks to devastating effect.

While Xehanort and his incarnations betray their allies when they [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness are of no further use]], Sora relies on ThePowerOfFriendship. Not to mention that both of them have multiple alter-egos, which have themselves clashed across the series.

** BadassBaritone: Same goes for his Heartless and Nobody.
* BigBad: Averted, actually. Compared to Xehanort's other alter-egos, this one is a relatively minor character and is never the primary villain of any of the games. He was set up to be the Big Bad of the entire series in ''II'', then ''Birth By Sleep'' passed that distinction on to Master Xehanort. [[spoiler:As of ''3D'', it's obvious this is more or less deliberate on Master Xehanort's part, since this incarnation was just a stepping stone to a much larger scheme involving Ansem and Xemnas]].

to:

* {{Badass}}
** BadassArmfold: [[spoiler:As
TheAce: A minor, villainous example, but an example nontheless. He has shown capable fighting ability, was controlling the heartless for a long time (possibly longer than his mistress, but that seems unlikely), apparently has a strong heart, has magical abilities, has experiance with Ansem, explosives, can attack with cars, had enough swordplay experiance to become captain of Queen Minnie's Musketeers, was the responsible captain of a steamboat, is able to manipulate others (to a degree), and has hacked and used technology and glitches to try and rule the worlds in a journal.
* AntiHero: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes Type V]] at the same time as
his pose boss. Like Maleficent, they only aided Sora and his friends during the game so that they could gain once the Organization XIII was toppled.
* BeardOfEvil: In the Country of Musketeers.
* BoisterousBruiser: At least his past-self, who ain't afraid to accept a fight
when commanding someone challenges him, whether it's Sora or his future-self. His future-self is to much of a coward to be this.
* BootstrappedLeitmotif: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QscpOLaF5sM Rowdy Rumble]], which in ''KingdomHeartsII'' was a generic mini-boss theme. This included, ''but was not exclusive to'', being played [[GoldfishPoopGang during every battle]] with Pete, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCEdURkWH18 except
the Guardian.]]
** BadassBaritone: Same goes

* CatsAreMean
* CharacterDevelopment: For better or
for worse, he went from a well-meaning and essentially decent authority figure to {{Jerkass}} attention seeker to cowardly villain (though he still retains some of his Heartless mettle). It's shown that he longs for the old days of steam boat captaincy.
* ChronicVillainy: In the earliest time where he is seen as the true villain, "The Country of the Musketeers", he is arrested in the end by the Royal Musketeers. By the time Terra, Aqua,
and Nobody.
* BigBad: Averted, actually. Compared
Ventus arrive in Disney Town, presumably several years later, he seems to Xehanort's other alter-egos, this one is be seen as a relatively minor character and is never the primary villain of any reasonable person, enough that it seems as though he was a ReformedCriminal. However, losing to Terra in a race leads to him once again undergoing a FaceHeelTurn. Depending on how one interprets Maleficent helping him out of the games. He was set up to be the Big Bad of the entire series in ''II'', then ''Birth By Sleep'' passed that distinction on to Master Xehanort.

** {{BFS}}: [[spoiler:Retains Master Xehanort's Keyblade.]]
** ColonyDrop: Meteor
** DishingOutDirt: Quake
** DualBoss: Sort of. [[spoiler:While Ansem relied exclusively on the Guardian, Xehanort will still whip out his Keyblade and knock you around with it. One of his attacks even has the Guardian hold Aqua still while Xehanort closes in and uses a combo]].
** GetBackHereBoss: The main difficulty in the battles with him is that he'll dash around the arena and become immune to damage when you use a special attack like magic or a shotlock, and the only way to guarantee a special attack will hit is to hit him while he's in the middle of an attack. This is the main difficulty in facing him with [[spoiler:Aqua, since most of her best attacks are spells]].
** GuardianEntity: [[spoiler:The Guardian belonged to Xehanort originally, making its first appearance in the universe's chronology after he possessed Terra]].
** LightningBruiser: Makes perfect sense, since [[spoiler:he has [[MightyGlacier Terra's]] power and vitality combined with [[OldMaster Master Xehanort's]] experience and training. Terra's Ars Solum, one of his best attacks, is Xehanort's ''standard'' combo.]]
** MagicKnight
** MirrorBoss: [[spoiler:Most of his attacks are actually usable by Terra as a playable character, such as Block-Counter Hammer, Ars Arcanum, Dark Volley, and Ultima Cannon. The only attack that isn't taken from Terra is a variant of Meteor that creates a series of homing meteors, which still counts because Terra ''can'' use Meteor, just a different version of it]]
** NoCureForEvil: Averted, he has Curaga.
* DeceptiveDisciple: He took the name of Ansem from his former teacher and stole his research for evil purposes.
* EvilutionaryBiologist: His experiments on the TheHeartless helped turn them into the army of darkness they are today.
* EvilSoundsDeep: In ''Birth By Sleep'', at least. In his short scene in ''Kingdom Hearts II'', he's much more subdued.
* FanNickname: [[spoiler:Terranort]]. Apprentice Xehanort (or Apprenticenort), Xehanort the Apprentice, and Ansem Seeker of Darkness are all accurate and useful when trying not to confuse him with anyone else. The latter, however, will cause very many headaches since his Heartless didn't bother to change his name.
* LackOfEmpathy
* LargeHam: By the time of ''Birth By Sleep's'' final battle it's been established as a requirement if you're an incarnation of Xehanort.
-->"ENOUGH!" \\
"You have lost!" \\
"Sink into darkness!"
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:With Terra FightingFromTheInside, Master Xehanort locked their hearts away to prevent losing control of his body, resulting in Xehanort losing his memories. However, in ''Dream Drop Distance'' we learn that the amnesia was either a lie or that his memories returned at some point]]. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Braig.
-->"Please tell me the amnesia was just a sick joke. Boy, this is some cliché."
* LiteralSplitPersonality: [[spoiler:Ansem more strongly embodies his Master Xehanort traits while Xemnas retains more of Terra's traits. As Terra-Xehanort he was just like Master Xehanort, and it's not fully clear what type of person he was after his memories got sealed, though 3D shows it was probably still like Master Xehanort]].
* LivingShadow: [[spoiler:The Guardian.]]
* TheManBehindTheMonsters: Didn't create the Heartless, but is responsible for their escape into the Realm of Light.
* MeaningfulRename: The source of several headaches in-universe. He even started writing about himself as though he ''were'' Ansem, as seen in the reports you spent the first game collecting.

[[spoiler: makes his story seem like one.]] Sure, he became a mad scientist, betrayed the man who took him in, and became responsible for everything wrong in the series, but his origins are quite sad: [[spoiler:he's essentially what happened when both Terra ''and'' Master Xehanort were locked out of control of Terra's body. He wound up in Radient Garden with no memories, just a name. The lost look of confusion he gives Braig when the latter chats him up is quite saddening. However, he was either totally faking it, or got his memories back fairly quickly. ''Master'' Xehanort is completely unsympathetic, though. ]]
* MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning: Gave into darkness to become a Heartless and Nobody on purpose so he could acquire more power. As of ''Dream Drop Distance'' it's made clear that this Xehanort was just a stepping stone for Master Xehanort to launch an even larger scheme than before, and dying and coming back was AllAccordingToPlan.
* MysteriousPast: Explained in ''Birth by Sleep''.
* NeckLift: [[spoiler:On Aqua]].
* OminousLatinChanting: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewhYdzHZ1Vo Dismiss]]", the battle theme for the second match with him in ''Birth By Sleep''.
** OminousPipeOrgan: Dismiss again.
** BossRemix: As so often happens in the series, it contains fragments of character themes.
* PointyEars: Notably lacks the EyesOfGold after a certain point in BBS [[spoiler:after both Terra and Xehanort's memories are locked away rendering neither of them capable of controlling his body]] and for most of his time [[spoiler:under Ansem the Wise's tutelage]].
* RelationshipVoiceActor: In the Japanese version, [[spoiler:Terra-]]Xehanort is voiced by AkioOhtsuka. Master Xehanort is voiced by ChikaoOhtsuka, Akio's father.
* {{Retcon}}: [[spoiler:The reports he wrote directly contradict his time travel plot.]]
** [[spoiler:Maybe not. While he definitely got some of Xehanort's memories back, he may not have gotten all of them.]]
* TheSociopath: [[spoiler: After all he is Master Xehanort.]]
* StartOfDarkness: ''Birth by Sleep''.
* ThatManIsDead: "[[spoiler:Terra's heart has been extinguished! Smothered by the darkness within him!]]"
* ThemeMusicPowerUp: Inverted -- when it comes time to fight him with [[spoiler:Lingering Will]] in ''Birth By Sleep'', the music for the fight is [[spoiler:Rage Awakened, the Will's theme]]. Which accurately reflects [[ThePowerOfHate what's]] [[UnstoppableRage about]] [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge to happen]].
* VillainousBreakdown: The only time he loses his cool in ''Birth By Sleep'' is when [[spoiler:the Lingering Will forms, prompting a snarl of protest. In the subsequent battle he begins by walking towards the Will slowly, attacking with a few Dark Volley shots and blocking attacks, but as the battle wears on he begins rapidly teleporting, cranks "a few" Dark Volleys into BeamSpam, and begins using Ars Solum liberally.]]
* VoicesAreMental: As covered under RelationshipVoiceActor, Xehanort is voiced by the son of Master Xehanort's voice actor, the intended effect presumably to be that the two characters have the same, but age-affected, voice.
* WalkingWasteland: [[spoiler: Appears to be this to Radiant Garden in the Final Episode of ''BirthBySleep''.]]

!"Ansem", the Seeker of Darkness (Xehanort's Heartless)
[[quoteright:325:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/325px-Ansem_Render_Action_KHI_7462.png]]
[[caption-width-right:325:"So, you have come this far, and still you understand nothing. Every light must fade, every heart return to darkness!"]]
->"All worlds begin in darkness, and all so end. The heart is no different. Darkness sprouts within it, grows, consumes it. Such is its nature. In the end, every heart returns to the darkness whence it came."
-->Voiced by: AkioOhtsuka (Japanese), Billy Zane[=/=]RichardEpcar (English)

Xehanort's Heartless who kept the alias "Ansem" that Xehanort himself took. He was the driving force behind the Disney villains's search for the Princesses of Heart, and uses Riku as a vessel to try and obtain the power of Kingdom Hearts. Uniquely for a Heartless, he retains the memories, appearance, and personality of his original self, Xehanort. [[spoiler:In ''Dream Drop Distance'' he is BackFromTheDead and one of the thirteen vessels of Xehanort's heart as one of his thirteen Seekers of Darkness]].
-----
* AGodAmI: Wishes to access Kingdom Hearts to use as a source of ultimate knowledge and power.
* ArchEnemy: Is treated as Riku's after the first game.
* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: Ansem was able to remain alive due to his control of Riku, allowing him to continue to exist as long as Riku held darkness in his heart. [[spoiler:However, he was destroyed when [=DiZ=]'s machine at the end of ''II'' purified Riku's heart.]]
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead]]: You'd think that [[spoiler:Riku getting purged of him at the end of ''II'' would finally do him in, but nooooo]].
** [[spoiler:Alternatively, it may be that Young Xehanort plucked him from shortly before he was purged via time travel. It's also ambiguous if it'll stick -- while it can't be sure yet, Xehanort notes that his incarnations must now return to their proper times with his current plan stopped, so Ansem may or may not be around in the next game.]]
** [[spoiler: Since it seems they have to be there to help forge the X-Blade as part of the 13 seekers of darkness, he and Xemnas will probably return. How though was not stated.]]
* BadassArmFold: His default posture while fighting with his Guardian.
* BadassLongCoat
** NoShirtLongJacket: Well two coats undone anyway.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[spoiler:He gets what he wants and obtains Kingdom Hearts's power in the end. Unfortunately for him, it turns out to be ''light'' power, not dark power like he thought it was, and he basically implodes as a result.]]
* BigBadDuumvirate: With Maleficent, though Ansem is [[TheManBehindTheMan the bigger Bad.]]
* [[BlackCloak Brown Cloak]]: Before he found a suitable host, Ansem could only appear as a hooded figure in a brown cloak with a creepy voice.
* CelestialBody: [[spoiler:His Guardian in his second form in ''[=3D=]'']].
* TheChessmaster: Masterminded the entire plot of the first game.
* ChewingTheScenery: Good Lord, once he ditches his brown cloak, every scene he's in feels like it's being torn apart between his teeth, even the ones where he doesn't have a face!
--> '''"[[PunctuatedForEmphasis KINGDOM HEARTS! FILL ME... WITH THE POWER... OF DARKNESS]]!!!"'''
** Let's put it this way. He [[HamToHamCombat features in the same game as a number of]] Disney Villains, whose [[LargeHam hamminess]] is the stuff of legend, ''and he manages to out-ham them ALL.''
* [[spoiler:CoDragons: He and Xemnas seem to be this in Master Xehanort's true organization, being his left and right hand men.]]
** [[spoiler:DemotedToDragon]]
* CombatTropes
** AirJousting: His Dark Rush Attack.
** AttackAnimal: The guardian itself is invincible and more or less a this for Ansem.
** BlackMagic[=/=]CastingAShadow: All of his attacks.



** DoubleWeapon: His final form uses a lance resembling two huge Soul Eaters fused together.
** FusionDance: With the Guardian for his final forms.
** FrickinLaserBeams: Summons {{Energy Ball}}s which fire them.
** GuardianEntity: "Come, Guardian!"
** PowerFloats
** SizeShifter: He's absolutely enormous for his final battle in the first game.
** SphereOfPower: [[spoiler: In his new battle phase in ''3D'' his Guardian becomes one.]]
** SphereOfDestruction: [[spoiler:His new attack in ''3D'' is to trap you in one.]]
** SquishyWizard: In a sense, compared to the other Xehanort's his style of combat involves far more magic and hiding behind his wall of a Guardian.
** TeleportSpam: Ansem does this with his Guardian for his Dark Shadow attack, sending him into a portal into the ground and rising and [[{{Shoryuken}} uppercutting the enemy]].
* CreepyMonotone: Earlier in the game when he was wearing a brown cloak and wasn't wolfing down scenery.
* DemonicPossession
* EldritchAbomination: Being a Heartless and all.
** HumanoidAbomination: He's the only intelligent, fully-sentient Heartless we've seen thus far, though he only gets the "humanoid" part after possessing Riku.
* EvilMentor: To Riku.
** DramaticIrony: Not to mention [[{{Irony}} Cosmic and Historic]]. Considering that Terra, [[spoiler:who eventually became Xehanort]], wanted Riku to [[TakeUpMySword take up his sword]]...
* GlovedFistOfDoom
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Kingdom Hearts, the so-called ultimate darkness he was searching for, turns out to be light, and ends up doing him in.
* KneelBeforeZod
--> "You are weak. You need darkness. Surrender. Bow to darkness. Bow to me."
* LackOfEmpathy
* LargeHam: Enough to get his picture on top of the Video Games section of this trope. Billy Zane's performance as him is pretty much legendary.
-->'''Ansem:''' "SUBMIT!"
* {{Leitmotif}}: With the exception of the first game's final battle, any battle theme involving him opens with a series of six [[OminousPipeOrgan organ chords]].
* TheMagnificent: Seeker of Darkness. [[BrickJoke This becomes far more relevant as the games go on.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: Played both the villains and [[spoiler:Riku]] through their darkest desires.
* TheManBehindTheMan: To Maleficent
** TheManBehindTheMonsters: To the Emblem Heartless.
* LivingShadow: The Guardian.
* NietzscheWannabe
* NoNameGiven: Sort of. While there's several Ansems in the series, Xehanort and Riku were just using it as an alias while the real Ansem is of course the original. This Ansem however never got his own name, and is thus referred to as "Ansem [=SoD=]" to differentiate him from the actual Ansem, or is otherwise just "Xehanort's Heartless".
* OmnicidalManiac
* OnlyMostlyDead: Even after being destroyed by ''Kingdom Hearts'', a small piece of himself was still alive in Riku. [[spoiler:It got purged in the sequel]].
* TheOtherDarrin: [[CelebrityVoiceActor Billy Zane]] in the first game, unfortunately replaced with RichardEpcar from ''Kingdom Hearts II'' onward. This led to more [[FlashbackWithTheOtherDarrin Flashbacks With The Other Darrin]] in ''Kingdom Hearts II''.
* PlotHole: [[spoiler: His death in the original game no longer makes sense when ''Dream Drop Distance'' revealed he had Xehanort's memories which are very much aware of Kingdom Heart's nature being light.]]
** Unless [[spoiler:he did not get all of Xehanort's memories... While he probably knows of his folly by 3D, he may not necessarily have known it around the time of ''Kingdom Hearts'']].
* PointyEars
* SequentialBoss
* SignificantAnagram: Probably unintentional, but "nAmes" is surprisingly relevant [[spoiler:to anyone with the name Ansem; they all have more than one name]].
* ShirtlessScene: As the final boss of the first game. What a bod.
* TheSociopath: Literally heartless, not to mention it comes with the territory as an incarnation of Xehanort.
* [[spoiler:TimeTravel]]
* TookALevelInBadass: Most players agree that Ansem was not a terribly difficult final boss in Kingdom Hearts 1. For his return in [[KingdomHeartsDreamDropDistance Dream Drop Distance]], on the other hand...[[spoiler:Ansem becomes a much, much harder fight than he ever used to be, effectively using projectiles and melee attacks together to make combos, having multiple phases that both have huge amounts of health, and in a display of CutscenePowerToTheMax, he subdues Riku almost effortlessly.]] That's quite a step up there.
* VocalEvolution: Richard Epcar's voice acting improved a lot between ''[=KH2=]'' and ''Re:[=COM=]'', although it's more like the vocal director gave him some breathing room instead of forcing him to try and out-ham Billy Zane with unsuccessful results. [[spoiler:He's also significantly better in ''Birth By Sleep'']].
** Also, Akio Ohtsuka himself was actually over-the-top hammy to an annoying level in the original Japanese version of ''Kingdom Hearts'', but also sounded a lot better in ''Re: [=COM=]''.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: After Kairi completes the Final Keyhole Ansem says this to her, which unfortunately for him was [[MoralityPet the one thing Riku wasn't willing to do]].

RetCon: In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', it was stated that King Mickey banished Pete to another dimension, presumably for doing something ''really'' bad, and Maleficent broke him out. In ''Birth By Sleep'', however, Pete only throws a hissy fit, and ''Queen Minnie'' temporarily banishes him to another dimension "until he cools down" from what seemed to be a preparation to attack her... for ice cream. While there's several Ansems there, Maleficent breaks him out in the series, Xehanort and Riku were just using it as an alias while the real Ansem is of course the original.

!Unknown [[spoiler:(Young Xehanort)]]
[[quoteright:236:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Unknown3D_4039.png]]
[[caption-width-right:236:"You haven't the slightest idea where you actually are."]]

->"Hypocrite. [[MindHive You are the one who has made your heart a prison...even if you are not the prisoner.]]"
--> Voiced by: Takanori Okuda (Japanese), David Gallagher (English, ''Birth By Sleep'') / BenDiskin (English, ''Dream Drop Distance'')

An enigmatic figure who appears out of thin air in ''Birth By Sleep'' to challenge the heroes in the Land of Departure as a BonusBoss. The Unknown's identity is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin completely unknown]] -- [[TheQuietOne he doesn't say a word]], and even the Keyblade he drops upon defeat is simply named "No Name". Despite the seemingly [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment random]] encounter, WordOfGod confirms that his battle with one of the trio is canon.

He reappears in ''Dream Drop Distance'' as the main antagonist, and is described as a being travelling worlds that causes beings of darkness to manifest in his wake. Unsurprisingly, he turns out to be another incarnation of Xehanort, working on another scheme. His true identity is [[spoiler:a younger Master Xehanort, given the power to travel through time by "Ansem" in order to create the true Organization XIII, an organization composed of Xehanort's heart in thirteen different vessels.]]

Another "Unknown" is a BonusBoss in ''Kingdom Hearts Final Mix'', and is [[ChekhovsGunman eventually revealed]] to be [[spoiler:Xemnas]]. This section, however, only refers to the ''Birth by Sleep''/''3D'' character.



* AffablyEvil: Though the Xehanorts all love [[JustBetweenYouAndMe explaining their plans]], this one sounds rather pleasant and sometimes smiles as he does it, particularly in the final world. At the least, the monotone makes him sound impersonal about it, rather than gloating or mocking like the other incarnations tend to be.
* [[spoiler:TheAssimilator]]
* BadassBaritone: In the English version, at least compared to his very youthful Japanese voice.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: [[spoiler:Not even Xehanort himself is above his manipulations -- Young Xehanort says that although he'll forget what he's learned of the future when he returns to his own time, the knowledge will remain in his heart and he will inevitably live out the life he is meant to lead to bring everything to this point. He also comments that a rule of time travel is that you cannot change events that are meant to happen, implying this to be in effect for the entire series]].
* BerserkButton: In his ''Birth By Sleep fight'', trying to attack him while he's in the middle of his BeamSpam is a ''bad'' idea. He usually stands there and lets his beams do the work, but try and attack him and he decides to start attacking you again while the beams are still firing, and this will likely get you killed.
** And then in ''Dream Drop Distance'', the only time he breaks his CreepyMonotone is when [[spoiler:Riku tries to rescue Sora before he can be made the 13th Xehanort vessel]]. However, WordOfGod reveals that this may be more a BerserkButton of [[spoiler:Master Xehanort, who imposed VillainOverride on him and caused the personality change and enhanced power set]].
* {{Bishonen}}: While Ansem and Xemnas also apply, this one has the youthful face to go with it.
* BlackCloak
* BonusBoss: In ''Birth By Sleep''.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: He can knock the commands out of your menu, when he reverses time the music goes backwards too, and he teleports to avoid your targeting sensor when you try to use a Shotlock. And then in ''3D'' he can replay cutscenes.
* CallBack: In ''[=3D=]'', as he attempts to rewind time, you will be bombarded with attacks from his ''Birth by Sleep'' battle.
* ChekhovsGunman: First appears as a BonusBoss in ''Birth by Sleep''; his next appearance in ''Dream Drop Distance'' sees him as TheHeavy.
* CombatTropes
** {{BFS}}: [[spoiler:His variation of the No Name in ''3D'' is huge]].
** BeamSpam: Can shoot barrages of darkness that will afflict you with Slow.
** CrosshairAware: Go ahead, try to charge up your Shotlock and see just how aware of the crosshairs he is.
** DoppelgangerAttack: The second phase of the fight in ''3D'' is a Doppelganger ''Battle'' -- [[spoiler:you can't actually damage Young Xehanort himself, you have to attack the clock emblem, which is producing a constant stream of clones to attack]].
** LaserBlade: ''Dual wielding'' laser blades! The Keyblade you get from him, No Name, is also essentially a LaserBlade [[CoolKey Key]][[CoolSword blade]]. [[spoiler:And then in ''3D'' he wields a variation of it over his laser blades for the first part of the battle with him.]]
** LightningBruiser
** MorphWeapon: Combines his separate blades into one, throws them out as orbs of light to shoot out like projectiles, elongates them to stab forward, and can whirl them through the air. [[spoiler:Also does many of the same tricks with his Keyblade in ''3D'']].
*** BifurcatedWeapon
*** DoubleWeapon
*** JavelinThrower
*** WhipSword
** MirrorBoss: Has many of the same commands as you such as [[ColonyDrop Meteor]], [[PlayingWithFire Raging Storm, Mega Flare]], Collision Magnet, Restore Barrier, Sonic Blade, Vanitas's X-shaped SwordBeam, Marluxia's Doom and Whirlwind to the Void, {{Laser Blade}}s like Xemnas, can clone himself like Xemnas, and in ''Dream Drop Distance'' he even [[spoiler:wields a Keyblade]]. ''Dream Drop Distance'' also justifies how he can do this, [[spoiler:since he's a young Xehanort that has visited multiple time periods to gather alter-egos of his future self. Notice most of those attacks can be used by people Xehanort has corrupted]].
** ReverseGrip
** ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Does this during one of his combos.
** TimeMaster: He can avert NoCureForEvil by rewinding time to before you hit him. It even makes the background music go in reverse for a few seconds. [[spoiler:His desperation move in ''3D'' is this on a larger scale -- he rewinds the battle to the start of the fight, even replacing the intro cutscene over again to complete the illusion, but he only recovers two bars of health]]. He's also able to resist Mickey's fourth-level Stopza spell, which even Ansem and Xemnas are halted by.
** TurnsRed: When low on health in ''Birth By Sleep'' he'll turn invisible and will begin using multiple attacks at once. And then in ''3D'', he gets faster, teleports more often, and his attacks are harder to avoid.
* ClimaxBoss: In ''3D''. The actual FinalBoss is almost an afterthought after the intensity of his fight and the plot revelations accompanying it.
* CreepyMonotone
* FanNickname: Mysterious Figure, which is from the Brady Games ''Birth by Sleep'' guide. The name is unofficial, but persists in the fan community for the sake of distinction from the original Unknown.
** A handful of fans also refer to him as Soranort. Because at this point, he's bound to be related to one of them somehow.
*** [[spoiler: Hats off to whoever originally came up with this one, as his entire plan in 3D is to create/[[GrandTheftMe become]] a literal "Soranort"]]
** As of the release of ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance 3D]]'', he's been referred to as Trollanort, [[spoiler:thanks to his affinity for playing literal mindgames and his bordering-on-unfair use of time control in his boss battle]]. Other variants include [[spoiler:Clockanort and [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure "TOKI WO TOMARE-nort"]]]].
* TheHeavy: In ''Dream Drop Distance''.
* [[spoiler:HelpYourSelfInTheFuture]]: [[spoiler:This is essentially what he's doing, helping his future self form the new Organization XIII advance his MesACrowd plot.]]
* InterfaceScrew:
** He can actually knock commands off of his opponent, who is forced to scramble to pick them up off the ground ''while dodging his attacks''.
** It's a bit unclear if it's actually intentional, but in ''[=3D=]'' his TeleportSpam is too fast for the camera to track at times, so if you're locked on it can seriously screw with your dodging.
* {{Invisibility}}: Has a penchant for going invisible and pulling out an instant KO combo.
* LegacyCharacter
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[spoiler:"Xehanort -The Early Years-".]]
* MindRape: [[spoiler:Subjects poor Sora to this.]]
* MythologyGag: He's a thematic retraux of the Unknown BonusBoss from ''Kingdom Hearts Final Mix'', wielding similar weapons and appearing in a similar fashion, and like it foreshadowing the BigBad of the next game.
* ShoutOut: During his Desperation move, he yells out [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure "TOKI WO TOMARE]].
* SNKBoss: He can clone himself, with all five clones able to attack individually, his "Colision Magnet" attack stuns you so the follow-up attack ''doesn't'' trigger Second Chance, can blow your command cards across the arena forcing you to pick them up, and any time you land a hit on him he may decide to rewind time to undo the damage and recover from the blow. This is in addition to his lightning-fast, powerful attacks. Then he gets weak, when he turns invisible, preventing you from targetting him, and begins to use multiple attacks at once, in addition to all of the previous.
* SpeedEchoes
* [[spoiler:StableTimeLoop]]: [[spoiler:It's implied he became able to move through the worlds and leave Destiny Islands because of Ansem, and though his memories of what he's learned regarding what his other incarnations will do will be erased when he returns to his own time, the knowledge of the events will remain embedded in his heart and draw him to live them out]].
* StartOfDarkness: [[spoiler:His meeting with Ansem [=SoD=].]]
* ThemeSongReveal: According to WordOfGod, his theme "Dark Impetus" contains a clue to his identity. It seems to take elements from [[spoiler: Rage Awakened (Terra's Lingering Sentiment), Darkness of the Unknown (Xemnas' final battle theme in Kingdom Hearts II), and Lord of the Castle (Marluxia's final battle theme in Re: Chain of Memories).]] Which mostly all fits together when you learn he's [[spoiler:a younger Xehanort that orchestrates the re-creation of Organization XIII]].
* TimeTravel: [[spoiler:Is a younger Master Xehanort travelled forward in time from the past]].
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: It's not much of a spoiler listing him here in the Xehanort section, since the trailers for ''Dream Drop Distance'' spoiled his status as yet another Xehanort by simply showing [[EyesOfGold what]] [[WhiteHairedPrettyBoy he]] [[BlackCloak looks]] [[LegacyCharacter like]] -- it's just a matter of figuring out in what way.
* {{Troll}}: Most of his appearances throughout ''3D'' are him just appearing to taunt Sora and occasionally Riku before vanishing. [[spoiler:Turns out this is precisely the idea, since he's luring Sora deeper into his dream world in order to MindRape him]].
* VillainOverride: [[spoiler: [[AllThereInTheManual According to the Ultimania for]] ''3D'', Master Xehanort did this to him for the battle with Riku in Where Nothing Gathers so as to be able to override the Stopza imposed by Mickey.]]

[[/folder]]

to:

* AffablyEvil: Though the Xehanorts all love [[JustBetweenYouAndMe explaining their plans]], this one sounds rather pleasant and sometimes smiles as he does it, particularly in the final world. At the least, the monotone makes him sound impersonal about it, rather than gloating or mocking like the other incarnations tend to be.
* [[spoiler:TheAssimilator]]
* BadassBaritone: In the English version, at least compared to his very youthful Japanese voice.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: [[spoiler:Not even Xehanort himself is above his manipulations -- Young Xehanort says that although he'll forget what he's learned of the future when he returns to his own time, the knowledge will remain in his heart and he will inevitably live out the life he is meant to lead to bring everything to this point. He also comments that a rule of time travel is that you cannot change events that are meant to happen, implying this to be in effect for the entire series]].
* BerserkButton: In his ''Birth By Sleep fight'', trying to attack him while he's in the middle of his BeamSpam is a ''bad'' idea. He usually stands there and lets his beams do the work, but try and attack him and he decides to start attacking you again while the beams are still firing, and this will likely get you killed.
** And then in ''Dream Drop Distance'', the only time he breaks his CreepyMonotone is when [[spoiler:Riku tries to rescue Sora before he can be made the 13th Xehanort vessel]]. However, WordOfGod reveals that this may be more a BerserkButton of [[spoiler:Master Xehanort, who imposed VillainOverride on him and caused the personality change and enhanced power set]].
* {{Bishonen}}: While Ansem and Xemnas also apply, this one has the youthful face to go with it.
* BlackCloak
* BonusBoss: In ''Birth By Sleep''.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: He can knock the commands out of your menu, when he reverses time the music goes backwards too, and he teleports to avoid your targeting sensor when you try to use a Shotlock. And then in ''3D'' he can replay cutscenes.
* CallBack: In ''[=3D=]'', as he attempts to rewind time, you will be bombarded with attacks from his ''Birth by Sleep'' battle.
* ChekhovsGunman: First appears as a BonusBoss in ''Birth by Sleep''; his next appearance in ''Dream Drop Distance'' sees him as TheHeavy.
* CombatTropes
** {{BFS}}: [[spoiler:His variation of the No Name in ''3D'' is huge]].
** BeamSpam: Can shoot barrages of darkness that will afflict you with Slow.
** CrosshairAware: Go ahead, try to charge up your Shotlock and see just how aware of the crosshairs he is.
** DoppelgangerAttack: The second phase of the fight in ''3D'' is a Doppelganger ''Battle'' -- [[spoiler:you can't actually damage Young Xehanort himself, you have to attack the clock emblem, which is producing a constant stream of clones to attack]].
** LaserBlade: ''Dual wielding'' laser blades! The Keyblade you get from him, No Name, is also essentially a LaserBlade [[CoolKey Key]][[CoolSword blade]]. [[spoiler:And then in ''3D'' he wields a variation of it over his laser blades for the first part of the battle with him.]]
** LightningBruiser
** MorphWeapon: Combines his separate blades into one, throws them out as orbs of light to shoot out like projectiles, elongates them to stab forward, and can whirl them through the air. [[spoiler:Also does many of the same tricks with his Keyblade in ''3D'']].
*** BifurcatedWeapon
*** DoubleWeapon
*** JavelinThrower
*** WhipSword
** MirrorBoss: Has many of the same commands as you such as [[ColonyDrop Meteor]], [[PlayingWithFire Raging Storm, Mega Flare]], Collision Magnet, Restore Barrier, Sonic Blade, Vanitas's X-shaped SwordBeam, Marluxia's Doom and Whirlwind to the Void, {{Laser Blade}}s like Xemnas, can clone himself like Xemnas, and in ''Dream Drop Distance'' he even [[spoiler:wields a Keyblade]]. ''Dream Drop Distance'' also justifies how he can do this, [[spoiler:since he's a young Xehanort that has visited multiple time periods to gather alter-egos of his future self. Notice most of those attacks can be used by people Xehanort has corrupted]].
** ReverseGrip
** ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Does this during one of his combos.
** TimeMaster: He can avert NoCureForEvil by rewinding time to before you hit him. It even makes the background music go in reverse for a few seconds. [[spoiler:His desperation move in ''3D'' is this on a larger scale -- he rewinds the battle to the start of the fight, even replacing the intro cutscene over again to complete the illusion, but he only recovers two bars of health]]. He's also able to resist Mickey's fourth-level Stopza spell, which even Ansem and Xemnas are halted by.
** TurnsRed: When low on health in ''Birth By Sleep'' he'll turn invisible and will begin using multiple attacks at once. And then in ''3D'', he gets faster, teleports more often, and his attacks are harder to avoid.
* ClimaxBoss: In ''3D''. The actual FinalBoss is almost an afterthought after the intensity of his fight and the plot revelations accompanying it.
* CreepyMonotone
* FanNickname: Mysterious Figure, which is from the Brady Games ''Birth by Sleep'' guide. The name is unofficial, but persists in the fan community for the sake of distinction from the original Unknown.
** A handful of fans also refer to him as Soranort. Because at this point, he's bound to be related to one of them somehow.
*** [[spoiler: Hats off to whoever originally came up with this one, as his entire plan in 3D is to create/[[GrandTheftMe become]] a literal "Soranort"]]
** As of the release of ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance 3D]]'', he's been referred to as Trollanort, [[spoiler:thanks to his affinity for playing literal mindgames and his bordering-on-unfair use of time control in his boss battle]]. Other variants include [[spoiler:Clockanort and [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure "TOKI WO TOMARE-nort"]]]].
* TheHeavy: In ''Dream Drop Distance''.
* [[spoiler:HelpYourSelfInTheFuture]]: [[spoiler:This is essentially what he's doing, helping his future self form the new Organization XIII advance his MesACrowd plot.]]
* InterfaceScrew:
** He can actually knock commands off of his opponent, who is forced to scramble to pick them up off the ground ''while dodging his attacks''.
** It's a bit unclear if it's actually intentional, but in ''[=3D=]'' his TeleportSpam is too fast for the camera to track at times, so if you're locked on it can seriously screw with your dodging.
* {{Invisibility}}: Has a penchant for going invisible and pulling out an instant KO combo.
* LegacyCharacter
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[spoiler:"Xehanort -The Early Years-".]]
* MindRape: [[spoiler:Subjects poor Sora to this.]]
* MythologyGag: He's a thematic retraux of the Unknown BonusBoss from ''Kingdom Hearts Final Mix'', wielding similar weapons and appearing in a similar fashion, and like it foreshadowing the BigBad of the next game.
* ShoutOut: During his Desperation move, he yells out [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure "TOKI WO TOMARE]].
* SNKBoss: He can clone himself, with all five clones able to attack individually, his "Colision Magnet" attack stuns you so the follow-up attack ''doesn't'' trigger Second Chance, can blow your command cards across the arena forcing you to pick them up, and any time you land a hit on him he may decide to rewind time to undo the damage and recover from the blow. This is in addition to his lightning-fast, powerful attacks. Then he gets weak, when he turns invisible, preventing you from targetting him, and begins to use multiple attacks at once, in addition to all of the previous.
* SpeedEchoes
* [[spoiler:StableTimeLoop]]: [[spoiler:It's implied he became able to move through the worlds and leave Destiny Islands because of Ansem, and though his memories of what he's learned regarding what his other incarnations will do will be erased when he returns to his own time, the knowledge of the events will remain embedded in his heart and draw him to live them out]].

* EyesOfGold[=/=]RedEyesTakeWarning: Although he has gold eyes in all of his appearances, accoridng to an interview from Nomura, Vanitas resembled a heartless-like creature with red eyes [[spoiler:before Ven joined his heart to Sora's to give Vanitas Sora's general appearance.]]
** Considering [[spoiler:the other characters with gold eyes are either partially possessed by Xehanort or Xehanort himself it's possible Xehanort partially possessed him to ensure Vanitas loyalty to him.]]
* {{Expy}}: Well let's see, his outfit is similar to Riku's Dark Mode, he takes the same battle stance as Riku, and he even dons Riku's iconic pose in the opening cinematic (with Ventus running towards him just like Sora no less).
** [[spoiler:Yet it's Sora he has a connection to, through Ven, and he looks like Sora with black hair and gold eyes and an epic SlasherSmile. He even has Sora's ''[[MiyuIrino voice]]''.]]

** [[spoiler:An alternate reason, canon to the novels, is that he wanted to rejoin with Ventus, thus not being all alone any more.

* OneHitKill: Or more like a One Hit Combo Kill, if you don't know what you're doing.

-->Voiced by: Tsutomu Isobe (Japanese), FredTatasciore (English)
CLU is a program created by Kevin Flynn in his likeness to oversee the development of the Grid. However, following his programming to create a "perfect system", CLU betrayed Flynn and took the Grid under his undisputed control, while also issuing the complete annihilation of the [=ISOs=], leaving Quorra as the sole survivor.



'''The Heartless'''

to:

'''The Heartless'''* AIIsACrapshoot: Subverted like in the film. CLU is still following his programming to try to create the perfect system. The problem is that Kevin made him when he was more naïve, and before he discovered the [=ISOs=], so CLU's plan is equally naïve. Therefore, it isn't CLU who changed; it's Kevin.

* ArchEnemy: To Kevin Flynn.
* ArtificialHuman
* BadassBoast: "I created the perfect system! And now, you see [[TheUsualAdversaries the applications at my disposal]]!"

* TheCorrupter: Corrupted The Grid and also [[spoiler:turned TRON into Rinzler]]. Not to mention the entire process of [[BrainwashedAndCrazy rectification]].
* CreativeSterility: Why he has to [[{{Brainwashed}} rectify]] programs instead of make new ones, and can't really think outside of his predefined mindset originally created by Kevin. Basics are unable to think outside of those parameters, unlike "Users" or [=ISOs=], and, unlike Users, cannot create, only repurpose what is already there.
* DeadlyDisc: Wields one, like everyone else in The Grid.
* DisneyVillainDeath: Subverted. He tries to jump a gap, and it looks like he will fall. However, he manages to make the jump, only to get offed a minute later.
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: As shown by his obsession with the Commantis Dream Eater.
* EnemyWithout: To Kevin Flynn.
* EvilOverlord: He rules the entire Grid with an iron fist.
* EvilTwin: Of Kevin Flynn, especially when he was younger.
* FantasticRacism: Hates the [=ISOs=] for being imperfect and unpredictable.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Though it drops completely when he hits his VillainousBreakdown.
* FunWithAcronyms: His name isn't "Clu", it's "CLU", which stands for "Codified Likeness Utility". It's unknown if, like in the original film, this is the second version of it.
* GoneHorriblyRight: Kevin built him as help to create the "perfect system" around the time of the inception of the TRON system itself. The only good thing that can be said about the result is that [[{{Dystopia}} it did work.]]
* KarmaHoudini: He manages to avoid defeat in Sora's story, making the BittersweetEnding sadder. However, it's likely that he still met the same defeat he does in the film in that case, just without Sora's involvement.
* KnightTemplar: He will do anything to create the "perfect system".
* LargeHam
* LatexSpaceSuit
* LittleNo: After Kevin tricks him into taking the wrong disc.
* MoralSociopathy
* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Complete with his Black Guards and Sentries PuttingOnTheReich.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Along with Barbossa, he is one of the only two live-action villains to be featured in the series.
* NotQuiteDead: Same situation as Frollo, he was not defeated in the real version of The Grid, so he could be back in later installments.
* OnlyOneName: Unless his acronym name could be counted as three, he's like most programs in this respect.
* ThePerfectionist
* PermaStubble: Even moreso than many other examples, since, as a program, his avatar is unchanging.
* APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Due to the static nature of the Grid since Kevin's exile, CLU and all other remaining programs there are at least approximately one thousand cycles old, with "cycle" meaning "Grid-year".
* RingsOfDeath
* SadisticChoice: He foists one of these on Sora: the Keyblade in exchange for turning Rinzler back into Tron.
* TronLines
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: Betrayed Kevin Flynn and took over The Grid.
* TheUnfought: Justified if one takes into account the source material. CLU can NoSell a direct disc hit, and even the game implies that only Kevin in the Grid or Sam out in the outside world could defeat him. Therefore, it's highly probable that neither Sora nor Riku would be even able to scratch him.
* VillainousBreakdown: After being lectured by Kevin Flynn, and even more after learning of the disc swap that caused his defeat.
* VillainousBSOD: After Riku defeats the Commantis.
* VisionaryVillain: He wants to create the perfect system.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He wants to bring the world to its maximum potential. Unfortunately, that means killing everything that's imperfect.

[[caption-width-right:250:The cutest EldritchAbomination you'll ever see.]]

-> "Anger... hatred... corruption, become power. Everything that exists, will be devoured!"
--> [[spoiler:—'''Data-Sora's Heartless''']]

The true antagonists of the story, Heartless are creatures of darkness born from the hearts within humans. They are driven only by instinct to seize hearts from other beings and destroy them, either by attacking them or manipulating them into darkness, creating more Heartless in the processs. As worlds also have hearts, this inevitably means they are drawn to worlds to destroy the world's heart and plunge it into darkness. Heartless come in two varieties -- Pureblood, formed naturally, and Emblem, formed by forced production.

According to legend, only the Keyblade wielder can stop the Heartless, able to lock the hearts of worlds from their reach, and when a Heartless is killed by a Keyblade its captive heart is freed. Thus the Heartless instinctively seek out Keyblade wielders to strike them down.
-----
* AdorableEvilMinions: Albeit with a few genuinely scary exceptions.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil
* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: They're born from the darkness, and so long even a single heart has a bit of darkness in it, they'll always exist. However, it was only due to Xehanort's experiments that they were able to invade the Realm of Light, their inactivity in ''Birth By Sleep'' suggests perhaps they could be marginalized in the Realm of Darkness again.
* BiggerBad: As the very embodiments of darkness and the main reason so many people and worlds are destroyed, they're the most significant evil force in the game universe. However as creatures of instinct with infinite numbers they aren't actual "villains" in terms of plot, thus the actual villain roles go to human characters.
* BishonenLine: Zigzagged. Several of the strongest Heartless (Invisible, Neo Shadow, Darkside, etc) look more humanoid than their lesser counterparts, and Xehanort's Heartless, the most powerful Heartless of all, looks entirely human. On the other hand most Heartless including bosses look like monsters.
* CuteBruiser: Most of them look too cute to be an army of bloodthirsty creatures.

known as "the Queen".
* TheUnfought
* [[TalkingToHimself Talking To Herself]]:
The true antagonists of the story, Heartless are creatures of darkness born from the hearts within humans. They are driven only by instinct to seize hearts from other beings Queen, Lady Tremaine, and destroy them, either by attacking them or manipulating them into darkness, creating more Heartless in the processs. As worlds also have hearts, this inevitably means they are drawn to worlds to destroy the world's heart and plunge it into darkness. Heartless come in two varieties -- Pureblood, formed naturally, and Emblem, formed by forced production.

According to legend, only the Keyblade wielder can stop the Heartless, able to lock the hearts of worlds from their reach, and when a Heartless is killed by a Keyblade its captive heart is freed. Thus the Heartless instinctively seek out Keyblade wielders to strike them down.

* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: They're born from the darkness, and so long even a single heart has a bit of darkness in it, they'll always exist. However, it was only due to Xehanort's experiments that they were able to invade the Realm of Light, their inactivity in ''Birth By Sleep'' suggests perhaps they could be marginalized in the Realm of Darkness again.
* BiggerBad: As the very embodiments of darkness and the main reason so many people and worlds are destroyed, they're the most significant evil force in the game universe. However as creatures of instinct with infinite numbers they aren't actual "villains" in terms of plot, thus the actual villain roles go to human characters.
* BishonenLine: Zigzagged. Several of the strongest Heartless (Invisible, Neo Shadow, Darkside, etc) look more humanoid than their lesser counterparts, and Xehanort's Heartless, the most powerful Heartless of all, looks entirely human.

What's left behind when a heart is lost. Don't take "Nobody" literally: they ''are'' the body (and ill-defined "soul") of the person, though usually warped to something unrecognizable as human. Those who had the strongest will before losing their heart, however, can retain human form: see Organization XIII. We're told they lack emotion and feeling, but the fandom disagrees on this issue. [[spoiler:They're half-right; [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance 3D]] reveals that Nobodies start out with no hearts, but can regain them over time. Xehanort kept this fact secret from the entire Organization as part of his overall scheme to collect thirteen empty vessels to house his own heart.]]

They come in far fewer 'types' than the Heartless; Dusks and Creepers fill the 'generic mook' role, with every other breed of Nobody corresponding to an Organization member in some way.
-----
* ColdSniper: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Snipers.]]
* DanceBattler: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Dancers]].
* EliteMooks: To the Heartless. Nobodies are only born when particularly strong hearts are lost, so they're not as common as Heartless but are more powerful and have some minor form of intelligence instead of just going on instinct.
* EmptyShell
* EvilWeapon: Berserkers wield "cursed hammers". This probably explains the "[[UnstoppableRage Berserk]]" [[ActionCommands Reaction Command]] and the fact that it seems to drag them around.
* TheFaceless: Most varieties, but look closely at the Dragoons.
* FantasticRacism: Not ''by'' them, but rather ''of'' them. Most anyone who talks about Nobodies, up to and including Sora, talks about them as being emotionless abominations that do not deserve to exist, often in arguments with members of the Organization XIII themselves. This is most prominent in ''II'', but is toned down in later ones, to the point where in ''3D'', Sora's next outing with Riku, Sora is appalled by injustices done to the Organization XIII by [[spoiler:Xemnas himself]], and [[spoiler:tells Roxas that he always wanted to tell him he deserves as much as anyone to be his own person, not just to be Sora]].
* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: How [[ActionCommands Reaction Commands]] around lesser Nobodies seem to operate, using their own powers against them.
* HumanoidAbomination: In direct opposition to TheHeartless (who take on more monstrous forms as they become stronger), the strongest Nobodies [[BishonenLine are human-like in appearance]]. They also move and walk in ways that highlight how ''un''-human they are, such as "swimming" through solid matter or walking on air. Characters in ''II'' also comment that by the nature of their existences, they are unnatural abominations that should not exist, though later games have toned down the FantasticRacism.
* IntangibleMan: Assassins can phase through solid objects.
* [[spoiler:ItWasWithYouAllAlong: As Dream Drop Distance reveals, Xemnas lied about the nature of Nobodies to further the Xehanorts' schemes. Nobodies do start without hearts, but as they connect to others, they develop emotion, and can grow new ones. By refusing to accept their own emotions and connections, the hearts are suppressed, allowing others to [[AssimilationPlot put their own in their place]].]]
* NiceHat: Dancers wear one.
* PowerOfTheVoid: Sorcerers attack with HardLight cubes of PureEnergy, being Xemnas' personal type. Also technically, all Nobodies are beings born of nothingness.
* ShapeshifterWeapon: Creepers shapeshift into various forms freely, including swords and spears.
* SigilSpam: An inverted Heartless / Mark of Mastery logo based on [[spoiler:Master Xehanort's armor]]. You could make a drinking game out of how many Nobody symbols there are decorating the Organization's castle, but you'd probably keel over before reaching the top.
* ThemeNaming: Except for [[{{Mooks}} Dusks and Creepers]], all the "lower" Nobody types are named after ''Final Fantasy'' job classes.
* UncannyValley: An InvokedTrope in how the lesser Nobodies move, ways that seem wholly unnatural.

manga. While something unrecognizable as human. Those who had of a second-in-command for Maleficent during the strongest will before losing their heart, however, can retain human form: see Organization XIII. We're told they lack emotion games, the manga makes him nothing more than a snivelling, bootlicking wimp who's just waiting for his chance to stab Maleficent in the back. The manga version of Maleficent is aware of his cowardly nature, and feeling, but the fandom disagrees on this issue.

cave.
* TheFaceless: Most varieties, but look closely at the Dragoons.
GoodColorsEvilColors
* FantasticRacism: Not ''by'' them, but rather ''of'' them. Most anyone who talks about Nobodies, up to and including Sora, talks about them as being emotionless abominations that do not deserve to exist, often in arguments with members of the Organization XIII themselves. This is most prominent in ''II'', but is toned down in later ones, to the point where in ''3D'', Sora's next outing with Riku, Sora is appalled by injustices done to the Organization XIII by [[spoiler:Xemnas himself]], and [[spoiler:tells Roxas that he always HoistByHisOwnPetard
** BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: He
wanted to tell him he deserves as much as anyone to be his own person, not just to be Sora]].
* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: How [[ActionCommands Reaction Commands]] around lesser Nobodies seem to operate, using their own powers against them.
* HumanoidAbomination: In direct opposition to TheHeartless (who
a genie. He didn't take on more monstrous forms as they become stronger), the strongest Nobodies [[BishonenLine are human-like in appearance]]. They also move and walk in ways that highlight how ''un''-human they are, such as "swimming" through solid matter or walking on air. Characters in ''II'' also comment that by the nature of their existences, they are unnatural abominations that should not exist, though later games have toned down the FantasticRacism.
* IntangibleMan: Assassins can phase through solid objects.
* [[spoiler:ItWasWithYouAllAlong: As Dream Drop Distance reveals, Xemnas lied about the nature of Nobodies to further the Xehanorts' schemes. Nobodies do start without hearts, but as they connect to others, they develop emotion, and can grow new ones. By refusing to accept their own emotions and connections, the hearts are suppressed, allowing others to [[AssimilationPlot put their own in their place]].]]
* NiceHat: Dancers wear one.
* PowerOfTheVoid: Sorcerers attack with HardLight cubes of PureEnergy, being Xemnas' personal type. Also technically, all Nobodies are beings born of nothingness.
* ShapeshifterWeapon: Creepers shapeshift into various forms freely, including swords and spears.
* SigilSpam: An inverted Heartless / Mark of Mastery logo based on [[spoiler:Master Xehanort's armor]]. You could make a drinking game out of how many Nobody symbols there are decorating the Organization's castle, but you'd probably keel over before reaching the top.
* ThemeNaming: Except for [[{{Mooks}} Dusks and Creepers]], all the "lower" Nobody types are named after ''Final Fantasy'' job classes.
* UncannyValley: An InvokedTrope in how the lesser Nobodies move, ways that seem wholly unnatural.
* UndyingLoyalty: Implied in the Dusk fight in ''II'' if taking
into account Roxas' [[DefectorFromDecadence actions]] at that that means he can be imprisoned in a lamp.
* JackassGenie: In the sequel.
* LargeHam
* LeanAndMean
* MagicStaff: His signature Cobra headed staff.
* MythologyGag: Most battles with his genie form have him floating over a pit of lava attacking you while you have to attack and destroy his lamp that Iago is flying around with to keep it away from you. This is a direct reversal of the climax of ''Return of Jafar'', where Jafar trapped the heroes in a lava pit and Iago performed a HeelFaceTurn to try and get the lamp to them so they could destroy it.
* PlayingWithFire: As a genie.
* OneWingedAngel: Turns into a red genie in
the end of ''Days''. The Dusk Roxas fights still calls him "my liege", ''Kingdom Hearts''' stay in spite of Agrabah, and keeps it for ''Kingdom Hearts II''.
* ScaledUp: Averted - he never uses his cobra transformation from
the fact that Roxas abandoned movie.

* SlasherSmile: In
the Nobodies. Also, late manga.

* SeahorseSteed: Sora can invoke this trope with Tatsu Steed and Tatsu Blaze.
* SigilSpam: Interesting in that they have two different ones. Spirits have their own Sigil and so do the Nightmares.

!{{Pete}}
[[quoteright:280:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Pete.png]]
[[caption-width-right:280:"See, it don't matter how tough he is, once he's a Heartless he'll do as I say!"]]
->"Just wait! Nobody, and I do mean nobody, messes with The Mighty Pete!"
-->Voiced by: ToruOhira (Japanese), JimCummings (English)

[[MyFriendsAndZoidberg There is also Pete]]. Once a humble steamboat captain, Pete turned to mischief-making until he got out of hand and was banished. He met Maleficent during his inter-dimensional exile and acts as her loyal servant.
-----
* TheAce: A minor, villainous example, but an example nontheless. He has shown capable fighting ability, was controlling the heartless for a long time (possibly longer than his mistress, but that seems unlikely), apparently has a strong heart, has magical abilities, has experiance with explosives, can attack with cars, had enough swordplay experiance to become captain of Queen Minnie's Musketeers, was the responsible captain of a steamboat, is able to manipulate others (to a degree), and has hacked and used technology and glitches to try and rule the worlds in a journal.
* AntiHero: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes Type V]] at the same time as his boss. Like Maleficent, they only aided Sora and his friends during the game so that they could gain once the Organization XIII was toppled.
* BeardOfEvil: In the Country of Musketeers.
* BoisterousBruiser: At least his past-self, who ain't afraid to accept a fight when someone challenges him, whether it's Sora or his future-self. His future-self is to much of a coward to be this.
* BootstrappedLeitmotif: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QscpOLaF5sM Rowdy Rumble]], which in ''KingdomHeartsII'' was a generic mini-boss theme. This included, ''but was not exclusive to'', being played [[GoldfishPoopGang during every battle]] with Pete, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCEdURkWH18 except the final]]. In the following games, however, the theme is invariably tied to the boss fights with Pete and usually little else, if anything.
* CatsAreMean
* CharacterDevelopment: For better or for worse, he went from a well-meaning and essentially decent authority figure to {{Jerkass}} attention seeker to cowardly villain (though he still retains some of his mettle). It's shown that he longs for the old days of steam boat captaincy.
* ChronicVillainy: In the earliest time where he is seen as the true villain, "The Country of the Musketeers", he is arrested in the end by the Royal Musketeers. By the time Terra, Aqua, and Ventus arrive in Disney Town, presumably several years later, he seems to be seen as a relatively reasonable person, enough that it seems as though he was a ReformedCriminal. However, losing to Terra in a race leads to him once again undergoing a FaceHeelTurn. Depending on how one interprets Maleficent helping him out of the resulting PocketDimension, he may count as a less tragic version of DrivenToVillainy as well.
* CombatTropes
** BarrierWarrior
** CarFu: He knows some as Captain Dark and when you use his D-Link Terra, Aqua and Ven can too.
** FlunkyBoss: In ''3D'' where he has his henchmen the Beagle Boys, during his time as the Captain of the Royal Guard in the Country of the Musketeers.
** IKnowMaddenKombat: His battles involve [[MadeOfExplodium explosive bowling balls]].
** GoodOldFisticuffs
** GroundPound
** RecurringBoss
** RoyalRapier: In [[MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers Country of the Musketeers]] in ''3D''.
** ShockAndAwe: Can use D-Thundaga in Re:coded which also is an example of RideTheLightning.
** StoutStrength
** TeleportSpam: In Re:coded.
** ThrowDownTheBomblet: In [[MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers Country of the Musketeers]] in ''3D''.
** TrapMaster: Can summon rigged blox in Re:coded.
* DirtyCoward: Made clear in the Battle of Hollow Bastion, where he [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere left Maleficent for herself]] with the Nobodies. Subverted in the end when he was able to conquer his fears in order to [[spoiler:help Sora and Mickey gets some time to defeat Xemnas by holding back the Heartless]].
** KnowWhenToFoldEm: In all fairness to Pete, he probably is perfectly aware of the fact that he can't really hold his own all that well against Nobodies. He's only following Maleficent because the alternative is worse.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Was temporarily banished to a PocketDimension by Queen Minnie for being rude and preparing to attack her for not giving him the victor's prize of ice cream in Disney Town.
* TheDragon: To Maleficent.
* EnemyMine: Twice. His past self put aside his (misunderstood) difficulties with Sora, Donald, and Goofy in order to help them fight his future self, so that he could get his boat back. Later, his present self helped [[spoiler:Sora and the King against Xemnas and the Heartless]].
* EvilChancellor: He was this to Minnie in the past as Captain of the Royal Guard in "Country of the Musketeers".
* FatBastard
* FatCat
* FatIdiot
* GoKartingWithBowser: An interesting version in that despite his obvious, if only slight malevolence, he's still not a bad guy when you race him in Birth By Sleep, having seemingly repented from his villainous days in the Country of the Musketeers (detailed in ''3D''). In fact, it's the race (or rather the fact that he lost) that causes him to pull a FaceHeelTurn ([[ChronicVillainy again]]).
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: "Past-Pete" before his alliance with Maleficent and the Heartless.
* LargeHam: Particularly as CAPTAIN JUSTICE!!!
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Just like in the film, he has a line to this effect in "Country of the Musketeers" in ''3D''.
-->'''Captain Pete''': How ''dare'' you [[BigDamnHeroes thwart me]] [[JustInTime just in the nick of time!]]
* MascotMook: The credits state at the end that Pete is one.
* ManipulativeBastard: Not particularly good at it, but he it's how he sows Heartless throughout the World.
* NostalgiaFilter: InUniverse. He seems to long for the good old days of steamboat captaincy, but, given the TimeTravel to Timeless River and [[HumiliationConga what happens to him]], he's probably just thinking it's better than his later situations.
* OnlyOneName
* RetCon: In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', it was stated that King Mickey banished Pete to another dimension, presumably for doing something ''really'' bad, and Maleficent broke him out. In ''Birth By Sleep'', however, Pete only throws a hissy fit, and ''Queen Minnie'' temporarily banishes him to another dimension "until he cools down" from what seemed to be a preparation to attack her... for ice cream. While there, Maleficent breaks him out in return for his service.
* RightHandCat: ''Technically'' he's this to Maleficent, being a cat.
* {{Sentai}}: In ''Birth by Sleep''.
** Results in a MixAndMatch of GoodCostumeSwitch and EvilCostumeSwitch: He's both Captain Justice and Captain Dark.
* VideogameCrueltyPotential: During his boss fight in Timeless River, if you combo Past!Pete, he will launch into the air and make a shockwave upon landing, he will then get up and yell ''[[WhatTheHellHero What's that for!?!]]'' before going back into the fray. but it is a bit of a subversion, as it doesn't have any substantial effect on either Pete (Present!Pete recieves little damage if this is done).
* YouShallNotPass: In ''Kingdom Hearts II'', during the endgame. He survives.

-->Voiced by: Haruhiko Jo (Japanese), Brian George (English), GeoffreyRush (English - Australian release)

Captain of the Black Pearl and leader of the undead pirates. The medallions' curse keeps Captain Barbossa and his men in a kind of limbo between life and death. Their true form is revealed in the moonlight, and it's a terrifying sight to see.

* NonStandardCharacterDesign: The first of two live action disney villains to make it into Kingdom Hearts. Like all of Port Royal, he is rendered realistically proportioned and looks like a real person, in contrast to the cartoony looks of Sora, Donald, and Goofy.
* TheOtherDarrin: Played straight and averted. Barbossa was voiced by Brian George for the initial English release of the game, but was replaced with GeoffreyRush (his original actor) for the Australian release.

Chernabog is a gigantic, muscular, humanoid demon. His skin is entirely colored black, and he is so large that Sora is roughly the size of his head. His head sports two curved horns, he has four fangs in his mouth, and his eyes are a glowing yellow. He has enormous, black, bat-like wings, and his wingspan is larger than he is tall.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Chernabog was to be the original FinalBoss and embodiment of all darkness of the first game, the endgame originally being a climb up the slopes of Bald Mountain to fight him, with the light inside Kingdom Hearts taking the place of the dawn. ExecutiveMeddling and console limitations put a kibosh in the plan, but the model was kept around to be used as the surprise boss.

A ruthless and self-righteous justice minister who is Quasimodo's reluctant guardian, seeing the evil he commits to be for the greater good.

* CoolSword: Brandishes one in cutscenes but is unfortunately TheUnfought.

* HangingJudge
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In Riku's story, he prepares to fight Riku himself, and summons the Wargoyle, which flies overhead and causes vibrations, making Frollo lose his footing on the guard-rail and fall.

-->Voiced by: Tsutomu Isobe (Japanese), FredTatasciore (English)
CLU is a program created by Kevin Flynn in his likeness to oversee the development of the Grid. However, following his programming to create a "perfect system", CLU betrayed Flynn and took the Grid under his undisputed control, while also issuing the complete annihilation of the [=ISOs=], leaving Quorra as the sole survivor.
----
* AIIsACrapshoot: Subverted like in the film. CLU is still following his programming to try to create the perfect system. The problem is that Kevin made him when he was more naïve, and before he discovered the [=ISOs=], so CLU's plan is equally naïve. Therefore, it isn't CLU who changed; it's Kevin.
* AntiMutiny: See above.
* ArchEnemy: To Kevin Flynn.
* ArtificialHuman
* BadassBoast: "I created the perfect system! And now, you see [[TheUsualAdversaries the applications at my disposal]]!"
* BeardOfEvil: Which, ironically, is also Kevin Flynn's former BadassBeard from when he was at the age when he created CLU.
* BlueEyes
* TheCorrupter: Corrupted The Grid and also [[spoiler:turned TRON into Rinzler]]. Not to mention the entire process of [[BrainwashedAndCrazy rectification]].
* CreativeSterility: Why he has to [[{{Brainwashed}} rectify]] programs instead of make new ones, and can't really think outside of his predefined mindset originally created by Kevin. Basics are unable to think outside of those parameters, unlike "Users" or [=ISOs=], and, unlike Users, cannot create, only repurpose what is already there.
* DeadlyDisc: Wields one, like everyone else in The Grid.
* DisneyVillainDeath: Subverted. He tries to jump a gap, and it looks like he will fall. However, he manages to make the jump, only to get offed a minute later.
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: As shown by his obsession with the Commantis Dream Eater.
* EnemyWithout: To Kevin Flynn.
* EvilOverlord: He rules the entire Grid with an iron fist.
* EvilTwin: Of Kevin Flynn, especially when he was younger.
* FantasticRacism: Hates the [=ISOs=] for being imperfect and unpredictable.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Though it drops completely when he hits his VillainousBreakdown.
* FunWithAcronyms: His name isn't "Clu", it's "CLU", which stands for "Codified Likeness Utility". It's unknown if, like in the original film, this is the second version of it.
* GoneHorriblyRight: Kevin built him as help to create the "perfect system" around the time of the inception of the TRON system itself. The only good thing that can be said about the result is that [[{{Dystopia}} it did work.]]
* KarmaHoudini: He manages to avoid defeat in Sora's story, making the BittersweetEnding sadder. However, it's likely that he still met the same defeat he does in the film in that case, just without Sora's involvement.
* KnightTemplar: He will do anything to create the "perfect system".
* LargeHam
* LatexSpaceSuit
* LittleNo: After Kevin tricks him into taking the wrong disc.
* MoralSociopathy
* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Complete with his Black Guards and Sentries PuttingOnTheReich.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Along with Barbossa, he is one of the only two live-action villains to be featured in the series.
* NotQuiteDead: Same situation as Frollo, he was not defeated in the real version of The Grid, so he could be back in later installments.
* OnlyOneName: Unless his acronym name could be counted as three, he's like most programs in this respect.
* ThePerfectionist
* PermaStubble: Even moreso than many other examples, since, as a program, his avatar is unchanging.
* APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Due to the static nature of the Grid since Kevin's exile, CLU and all other remaining programs there are at least approximately one thousand cycles old, with "cycle" meaning "Grid-year".
* RingsOfDeath
* SadisticChoice: He foists one of these on Sora: the Keyblade in exchange for turning Rinzler back into Tron.
* TronLines
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: Betrayed Kevin Flynn and took over The Grid.
* TheUnfought: Justified if one takes into account the source material. CLU can NoSell a direct disc hit, and even the game implies that only Kevin in the Grid or Sam out in the outside world could defeat him. Therefore, it's highly probable that neither Sora nor Riku would be even able to scratch him.
* VillainousBreakdown: After being lectured by Kevin Flynn, and even more after learning of the disc swap that caused his defeat.
* VillainousBSOD: After Riku defeats the Commantis.
* VisionaryVillain: He wants to create the perfect system.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He wants to bring the world to its maximum potential. Unfortunately, that means killing everything that's imperfect.

-> "Genie, my final wish! I want you to make me an all powerful GENIE! "
-->Voiced by: Akira Takarada (Japanese), Jonathan Freeman (English)
He is the royal vizier of Agrabah. Two-faced and cunning, Jafar seeks the demise of Aladdin and to rule as sultan of Agrabah.
----
* AGodAmI
* AnIcePerson: Has an ice spell.
* AndIMustScream: Imprisoned in a lamp for a year between ''Kingdom Hearts'' and ''Kingdom Hearts II''.
* AnimalMotifs: Cobras.
* BeardOfEvil
* DirtyCoward: He was portrayed as this in the manga. While something of a second-in-command for Maleficent during the games, the manga makes him nothing more than a snivelling, bootlicking wimp who's just waiting for his chance to stab Maleficent in the back. The manga version of Maleficent is aware of his cowardly nature, and only keeps him around because of his knowledge of Agrabah.
* TheDragon: Replaced with Hook and Riku after his defeat in the initial ''Kingdom Hearts'', to Maleficent's BigBad. He, too, is eventually replaced after his defeat and imprisonment.
* EvilChancellor: Initially Royal Vizier of Agrabah.
* EvilSorcerer
* TheEvilGenius
* FrickinLaserBeams: Launches one from his staff as his primary attack.
* GetBackHereBoss: Spends his entire pre-genie boss fight in ''Kingdom Hearts'' just moving around the cave.
* GoodColorsEvilColors
* HoistByHisOwnPetard
** BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: He wanted to be a genie. He didn't take into account that that means he can be imprisoned in a lamp.
* JackassGenie: In the sequel.
* LargeHam
* LeanAndMean
* MagicStaff: His signature Cobra headed staff.
* MythologyGag: Most battles with his genie form have him floating over a pit of lava attacking you while you have to attack and destroy his lamp that Iago is flying around with to keep it away from you. This is a direct reversal of the climax of ''Return of Jafar'', where Jafar trapped the heroes in a lava pit and Iago performed a HeelFaceTurn to try and get the lamp to them so they could destroy it.
* PlayingWithFire: As a genie.
* OneWingedAngel: Turns into a red genie in the end of ''Kingdom Hearts''' stay in Agrabah, and keeps it for ''Kingdom Hearts II''.
* ScaledUp: Averted - he never uses his cobra transformation from the movie.
* ShouldersOfDoom
* SlasherSmile: In the manga.
* SmugSnake
* TheStarscream: Also in the manga; he wants to use his genie powers to overthrow Maleficent.

Jafar's boisterous and cunning parrot. He's Jafar's eyes and ears for everything going on in Agrabah
----
* TheAtoner: In the second game.
* ButtMonkey
* CelebrityVoiceActor: Gilbert Gottfried, as usual. Notable, in that he's one of the few actors from the Disney movies to [[TheOtherDarrin revoice his character]].
* DeadpanSnarker
* DirtyCoward: Until his...
* HeelFaceTurn: Though he's still proves to be a DirtyCoward in the sequel despite being the heroes' friends.
* HeroicSacrifice: Luckily, he survived.

[[folder:Ice Titan]]
!Ice Titan
One of the Titans from ''Hercules'', fought in the Coliseum.
----
* AnIcePerson: Duh.
* BeamSpam: It fires icicle shards as its main attack, and fires a ''lot'' of them.
* BreathWeapon: Which can turn you into a HumanPopsicle.
* BonusBoss
* DemBones
* {{Expy}}: Hades employs the "Ice Colossus", a weaker clone of the Ice Titan, in ''Birth By Sleep'' (the genuine article is still under lock and key at that point).
* LevelGrinding: A famous use for it, as each time you deflect an icicle you get 24 exp. You're likely to get more exp from the icicles than you do for killing the Ice Titan itself.
* [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Only Known By Its Title]]: Its name, Hydros, is never mentioned in any of the games.
* SleepModeSize: After Sora beats it, it loses so much mass it has to run away before he steps on it.
* TennisBoss: Ice Titan is out of range of Sora's normal attacks, so you have to deflect its icicles at its head to knock it down.
* TheVoiceless
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Julius]]
![[RunawayBrain Julius]]
A gigantic monstrous version of Pete created by Dr. Frankenollie that Sora and Riku encounter in Traverse Town.

* [[spoiler:DePower]]: [[spoiler:While electrified, he can lock away the commands used by Sora and Riku.]]
* ElementalPunch: Electric version.
* {{Expy}}: Of Pete.
* FrankensteinsMonster
* HandicappedBadass: Has a peg leg.
* InterfaceScrew: [[spoiler:If he is electrified, he can temporarily lock away one of your commands when he climbs, and then jumps down from the building, bouncing towards you in the arena you fight him in. Hope the command isn't Cure[=/=]ra[=/=]ga]]
* LightningBruiser
* ShockAndAwe
* TheUnexpected: Unlike some of the other reveals and characters in ''3D'', virtually nobody expected to see Julius, least of all as the secret boss.
* UnskilledButStrong: His attacks are basic, but very effective.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Using punches, elbow drops, charging tackles, and a punch barrage close to a spinning clothesline.

-> "I am innocent scientist who created galaxy's most destructive -- er, ''constructive'' species of all time."
-->Voiced by: ShozoIizuka (Japanese), David Ogden Stiers (English)
A self-proclaimed "evil genius," he is arrested for illegal genetic experimentation and now serves time in a cell within the Turo Prison Block.
----
* AdmiringTheAbomination: More specifically, admiring himself for creating experiments, and then admiring the destructive power they have.
* AFatherToHisMen: After Sparky is beaten, Jumba grabs his Dehydrated experiment and comforts it.
* CardCarryingVillain: He calls ''himself'' an EvilGenius.
* EvilGenius
* ForTheEvulz
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: While not ''quite'' as pathetic as Pete, he's still arguably the least evil and menacing of the Disney villains thus far. The fact that he ends up pulling a HeelFaceTurn in [[LiloAndStitch his original continuity]] may have something to do with this.
* LargeHam
* LaughablyEvil
* MadScientist
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Though to be fair, we don't know the specifications for earning a doctorate on whatever planet he comes from.

-> "The queen is gone, and my work is done. Adieu, o victorious one."
-->Voiced by: Tamio Oki (Japanese), CoreyBurton (English)
A spirit who appears within the magic mirror at the queen's behest and answers all questions with the truth.
----
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: When not driven insane by one method or another, the Mirror seems personable enough, if cryptic. In fact, both of the battles (with Terra and with Aqua) seem to be due to it being corrupted by outside forces.
* BreathWeapon[=/=]PlayingWithFire: Inside the mirror.
* DoppelgangerSpin: The trick is to spot the one that's [[spoiler:smiling]].
* GracefulLoser: His only reaction to defeat is a rather bored "How unfortunate."
* MagicMirror
* RhymesOnADime
* TookALevelInBadass: Forced upon him by the Evil Queen, making his spirit quite the boss fight inside the mirror.

-> "We don't need users."
-->Voiced by: Ikuya Sawaki (Japanese), CoreyBurton (English)
Instead of working for the users, the MCP is planning to take over the system for himself. By refusing to follow the users' orders and trying to enact his evil plan, he's causing chaos among the other programs
----
* AIIsACrapshoot
* BossBanter: He doesn't attack on his own (he kinda can't), so rather than fight, he taunts you during the battle. And he never. Shuts. ''Up''!
-->"Insignificant user!"
-->"Is that the best a user can do?"
-->"I can repair that data..."
-->"Eliminate all threats!"
** Half of that is true, he DOES never shut up, but he does attack with the sheilds that protect him and by electrifying them, slamming them down, and shooting FricknLaserBeams out of them.
* PivotalBoss
* TalkingToHimself: The MCP and Sark are both voiced by Corey Burton.
* VillainOverride: Does this to [[TheDragon Sark]] in the final battle, giving many of his functions to him.
* WeCanRuleTogether: He attempted this on Tron. It didn't work; instead Tron takes over.

-> "Nobody disrespects me! NOBODY!"
-->Voiced by: Hiroshi Hatanaka (Japanese), Ken Page (English)
An evil bag of bugs who loves gambling with dice and dreams of causing trouble for Jack in Halloween Town. In ''Kingdom Hearts'' he steals a heart that Jack and Finklestien create to control the Heartless, but [[spoiler:uses their power too much and succumbs to the darkness]]. In ''Chain of Memories'' he does the same thing as last time except it's a memory potion. In ''Kingdom Hearts II'', he is resurrected by Maleficent so they can turn Santa Claus into a heartless.
----
* BackFromTheDead: Maleficent brings him back; he's an UngratefulBastard.
* BondVillainStupidity: He always uses traps in his attempts to kill Sora, Jack, Donald, and Goofy, since he doesn't quite have the guts to take care of them directly. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that he's a pretty bad fighter in close combat.
* TheBrute
* DirtyCoward
* EvilLaugh
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Unlike most of the other villains in the series, Oogies deaths are rather graphic when you think about it. His insides are essentially coming out while his skin is coming undone and he is yelling in agony.
* FauxAffablyEvil
* ForTheEvulz
* TheGambler: But he sucks at gambling.
* TheOtherDarrin: Thankfully averted as Ken Page still does Oogies voice, and sounds like he's still having fun with it.
* LargeHam
* NoCureForEvil: Averted, by rolling a certain number with his dice he can activate a machine that he uses to heal himself, this is also true for his boss fight in ''Chain of Memories''.
* OneWingedAngel: when he merges with his manor.
* PuzzleBoss
* ScaryBlackMan: His voice actor, anyway.
* UngratefulBastard: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], in that he doesn't remember Maleficent, let alone her resurrecting him, due to the side-effects of said resurrection; however, that doesn't change the fact that he was a bastard already.
* VillainousBreakdown: "Nobody disrespects me! NOBODY!!"

-> "Off with their heads!"
--> Voiced by: Sumie Ozawa (Japanese), TressMacNeille (English)
A queen of Wonderland who lives in a castle with decks and decks of card soldiers. Selfish and short-tempered, she beheads anyone who crosses her. She thinks Alice tried to steal her heart.
----
* AdiposeRex
* FlunkyBoss: She's no threat, its her card soldiers you have to look out for.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: if struck in the boss fight, she flips upside-down revealing these.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen
* HarmlessVillain: The Queen herself is useless in combat, her Card Soldiers rely on ZergRush tactics and are still pathetic, and she has no part in any of Maleficent's plans, staying confined to Wonderland and not doing anything malicious there other than being a petty {{Jerkass}}.
* LargeHam
* OffhandBackhand: If the rim of the booth she is sitting in is mounted during her boss fight, she does a ''really'' weak version of one.
* PimpedOutDress
* StaffOfAuthority: It's not really a staff though, it's more of a lollipop shaped like a heart.

-->Voiced by: Tetsuo Kanao (Japanese), CoreyBurton (English)
A powerful program who doesn't serve any user — just the MCP. Commander Sark is pretty harsh to any program that tries to resist his master's power.
----
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Thanks to the MCP.
* DeadlyDisc
* TheDragon: To the MCP.
* EvilCounterpart: Of Tron.
* NeverSayDie: See the above quote. Justified, seeing as they're computer programs, and derezzing is the same as dying for them.
* OnlyOneName
* PowerupLetdown: Despite growing to gigantic proportions, Sark is actually quite laughable in his second form. He loses most of his mobility, his [[VillainTeleportation "Initiating data transfer!"]], and his attacks are easily telegraphed. In fact, by simply ''running away from him'', Sora can [[OneHitKO knock him out effortlessly]] via [[ActionCommands Reaction Commands]].
* SizeShifter
* TalkingToHimself: Has the same voice actor as the MCP, his master.
* TeleportSpam

-> "You're in trouble again. But this time daddy isn't here to save you."
-->Voiced by: Haruhiko Jo (Japanese), James Horan (English)
Scar is Simba's evil uncle. Scar was always jealous of his older brother Mufasa, and killed him so that he could become king of the Pride Lands.
----
* BackFromTheDead: His darkness was so strong, it helped him to come back as a Heartless after Simba killed him. When he died a second time, he came back again as a ghost. Later, his ghosts merged into the giant-sized Groundshaker Heartless, showing just how much darkness Scar had lodged in that callous heart of his.
* TheCaligula
* CastingAShadow
* ElementalPunch: Lots of them as a Heartless.
* EldritchAbomination: As Groundshaker. Damn, that thing is even bigger than Franchise/{{Godzilla}} himself.
* EvilGloating: Which ultimately gets him in trouble...
* EvilPrince
* EvilUncle
* FauxAffablyEvil
* FisherKing
* GoodScarsEvilScars: His pink gash over his left eye is an Evil Scar that earned his nickname.
* HiveMind[=/=]BigDumbBody: As Groundshaker, he has two bodies. The smaller body sits on top of the larger one and controls it.
* LargeHam
* MadeOfEvil: Once he became a Heartless. Put it this way -- the only other person who retained their original appearance after turning into a Heartless was Ansem (and even then, Ansem needed DemonicPossession to retain his original appearance, Scar didn't even need to possess anyone to retain it)! Scar had even more darkness in his heart than even Xehanort did !
* ManipulativeBastard
* OneWingedAngel: As mentioned above, the Groundshaker Heartless is technically his final form.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: His real name isn't actually "Scar", it's Prince Taka. That said, nobody ever calls him anything but Scar.
* PantheraAwesome
* ScarsAreForever
* ShockwaveStomp: As Groundshaker.
* SmugSnake
* TheWormThatWalks: His many ghosts all merge to form the Groundshaker.

-> "Now you'll bow to me!"
-->Voiced by: HiroshiFujioka (Japanese), CoreyBurton (English)
Shan-Yu is the leader of the Hun army, and plans to attack and take over China (The Land of Dragons in game). He is large and burly, and wields a blade with zigzag shaped edges. His eyes and ears over China is his pet falcon, Hayabusa. Hayabusa appears as an ominous warning to others that Shan-Yu and his army are approaching.
----
* AnimalMotif: Hawks or raptor birds
* AttackAnimal: His bird Hayabusa.
* BadassLonghair: manages combine this with BaldOfEvil with his monk-like hair cut.
* BattleAura
* {{Berserker}}
* BlackEyesOfCrazy
* BossBanter: this makes a large part of his speaking role
--> "You think you can overpower ''ME''!!??"
* CoolSword: It appears to be a very large kris.
** BladeLock: A reaction command you can do with him.
** GoodWeaponEvilWeapon: Definitely an evil weapon.
* EvilLaugh
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: In the Manga, he makes a deal with Xigbar in exchange for power, and when he fails and pleads for more power from Xigbar. Xigbar comes to the conclusion that he isn't worth the trouble of giving a chance and promptly ''Shoots him in the head, POINT BLANK''. What makes even worse is the fact that even Sora winces at it once it is done.
** BoomHeadshot: Again, only in the Manga.
* FourStarBadass
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: There's no word on what his motives for invading with the Heartless are, nor does he have much dialogue and screentime. He's defined by the threat he poses. However, dialogue with the Emperor and knowledge of the film of origin implies that he might have been using them to try to take over and destroy China.
* GeniusBruiser: Manages to command and Organize Heartless with his military expertise ''alone'', sneak heartless into the ranks of Shang's army, tricks Sora and co., and also puts up a good fight.
* GoodEyesEvilEyes
* KneelBeforeZod: Aside from his battle quotes, it's his only spoken line in the game, and it is awesome.
* ShockwaveStomp
* SpinAttack
* TalkingToHimself: Corey Burton also voices Frollo, The MCP, and Sark to name a few.
* TheOtherDarrin: He is voiced by CoreyBurton, who voices a bunch of other characters in the series.

-> "See what happens when you go against my wishes?"
-->Voiced by: Aiko Konoshima (Japanese), Susanne Blakeslee (English)
Lady Tremaine is mother by blood of Anastasia and Drizella. Using Cinderella as a maid, she will do anything to ensure her two daughters' own success.
----
* CatsAreMean: [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Lucifer]].
* KarmaHoudini: Her famous status of this in the original movies is actually avoided here, as [[spoiler:her last scene features her, Anastasia, and Druzella presumably ''killed'' by an Unversed. Seeing as that same Unversed was attacking Cinderella while the three of them stood by ''laughing'',]] this is a VERY satisfying fate for them.
* LastNameBasis: She's only known as "Lady Tremaine", as in the films.
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]
* NeverSayDie: The final fate of Tremaine and her daughters is, according to Aqua, "The Darkness in their hearts overtook them."
** Please note that Aqua is actually saying that Tremaine pretty much brought it on herself, as the Unversed that may have [[spoiler:killed her]] was created from her hatred.
* ParentalFavoritism: If it were possible, ''Birth by Sleep'' actually pushes this trope even further.
* RightHandCat: Who's even a boss battle!
* SmugSnake
* [[TalkingToHimself Talking To Herself]]: Lady Tremaine is voiced by Susanne Blakeslee, the same voice actress who voiced Maleficent and the Evil Queen.
* WickedStepmother

[[folder:Ursula]]
![[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ursula]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/300px-Ursula_KHII_2049.png]]
-> "The sea and all its spoils bow to my power!"
-->Voiced by: {{Kujira}} (Japanese), Pat Carroll (English)
A sea witch, Ursula was once a senior member of King Triton's court. However, she was banished for her love of Black Magic. Ursula has two pet eels, Flotsam and Jetsam, whom she refers to as her "poopsies".
----
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Twice, once during each of her lives before her defeats.
* BackFromTheDead: In VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII, everyone does notice how weird her revival is, but they have a theory that it relates to her mastery of the powers of darkness.
** Subverted in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance''. She is brought back as the tutorial boss, and appears to remember her previous defeats. However, the journal reveals that she is merely a phantom.
* BerserkButton: Ursula [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever grows to giant size]] after Sora kills her {{Mooks}} [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Flotsam and Jetsam]].
* BreathWeapon
* CombatTentacles: Of course!
* DealWithTheDevil: Offers one to Ariel in both VideoGame/KingdomHearts and VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII. In the latter case, she was faking a HeelFaceTurn and wanted to give the deal as a gesture of her new found "good will".
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Only this time, it was by having the trident being hurled into her. Incidentally, this was originally how Ursula was going to be defeated in an early draft of the original film.
* LargeHam
* MakingASplash
* MamaBear: To Flotsam and Jetsam.
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]
* OneWingedAngel: In all the games she is in, she turns into a giant form of herself. Trying to defeat her in the first game when she's in that form is pretty hard.
* OnlyOneName
* PowerHair
* ProngsOfPoseidon: When she has king Triton's trident anyway.
* ShockAndAwe
* SizeShifter
* SlasherSmile: In the manga.

!Disney Villians
[[folder:General]]
A group of classic Disney Villains. In the first game, a group of them conspire under [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent's]] leadership. They are trying to use TheHeartless for their own evil means. After that, however, they're far more independent.

Maleficent's original group includes [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Hades,]] [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Jafar,]] [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ursula,]] [[Disney/PeterPan Captain Hook,]] and [[TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Oogie Boogie]]. The second game introduces [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Hector Barbossa]], [[Disney/{{Mulan}} Shan-Yu]], [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]], and [[{{Tron}} the MCP]], who aren't aligned with Maleficent, although she attempts to recruit/manipulate a couple.
----
* EvilVersusEvil: They got into a hard competition with Organization XIII during the second game. Organization XIII was for quite a time one step ahead, but after [[spoiler:Maleficent and Pete joined forces with Sora, King Mickey, and their friends]], the Disney villains eventually became the winning side.
* LargeHam: Noted in each applicable entry, but it should be noted that the group from the original game (Maleficent, Captain Hook, Jafar, Oogie Boogie, Hades, and Ursula, plus the unaffiliated Clayton) might as well be called ''The Large Hams Band''.
* LegionOfDoom
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Villains of a Sort".
* UnwittingPawn: They believe they use the Heartless without knowing it's actually the Heartless who use them (or, to be exact, that the Heartless are only complying with them because their REAL leader instructed them to.)

The villain from ''{{Disney/Sleeping Beauty}}'', Maleficent is an evil fairy hellbent on taking over all worlds in existence. She poses a major threat early on in Sora's adventure, but her plan gets [[HijackedByGanon Hijacked By Xehanort]] before the climax. Unfortunately for Sora and co., you can't keep a good villain down for long...

!Disney Villians
[[folder:General]]
A group of classic Disney Villains. In the first game, a group of them conspire under [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent's]] leadership. They are trying to use TheHeartless for their own evil means. After that, however, they're far more independent.

Maleficent's original group includes [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Hades,]] [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Jafar,]] [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ursula,]] [[Disney/PeterPan Captain Hook,]] and [[TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Oogie Boogie]]. The second game introduces [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Hector Barbossa]], [[Disney/{{Mulan}} Shan-Yu]], [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]], and [[{{Tron}} the MCP]], who aren't aligned with Maleficent, although she attempts to recruit/manipulate a couple.
----
* EvilVersusEvil: They got into a hard competition with Organization XIII during the second game. Organization XIII was for quite a time one step ahead, but after [[spoiler:Maleficent and Pete joined forces with Sora, King Mickey, and their friends]], the Disney villains eventually became the winning side.
* LargeHam: Noted in each applicable entry, but it should be noted that the group from the original game (Maleficent, Captain Hook, Jafar, Oogie Boogie, Hades, and Ursula, plus the unaffiliated Clayton) might as well be called ''The Large Hams Band''.
* LegionOfDoom
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Villains of a Sort".
* UnwittingPawn: They believe they use the Heartless without knowing it's actually the Heartless who use them (or, to be exact, that the Heartless are only complying with them because their REAL leader instructed them to.)

he doesn't seem really have or need a reason to restart the keyblade war; he's just excited by the idea of a universal conflict, especially now that he's the guy with an InfinityPlusOneSword.

* TheAce: A minor, villainous example, but an example nontheless. He has shown capable fighting ability, was controlling the heartless for a long time (possibly longer than his mistress, but that seems unlikely), apparently has a strong heart, has magical abilities, has experiance with explosives, can attack with cars, had enough swordplay experiance to become captain of Queen Minnie's Musketeers, was the responsible captain of a steamboat, is able to manipulate others (to a degree), and has hacked and used technology and glitches to try and rule the worlds in a journal.
* AntiHero: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes Type V]] at the same time as his boss. Like Maleficent, they only aided Sora and his friends during the game so that they could gain once the Organization XIII was toppled.
* BeardOfEvil: In the Country of Musketeers.
* BoisterousBruiser: At least his past-self, who ain't afraid to accept a fight when someone challenges him, whether it's Sora or his future-self. His future-self is to much of a coward to be this.
* BootstrappedLeitmotif: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QscpOLaF5sM Rowdy Rumble]], which in ''KingdomHeartsII'' was a generic mini-boss theme. This included, ''but was not exclusive to'', being played [[GoldfishPoopGang during every battle]] with Pete, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCEdURkWH18 except the final]]. In the following games, however, the theme is invariably tied to the boss fights with Pete and usually little else, if anything.
* CatsAreMean
* CharacterDevelopment: For better or for worse, he went from a well-meaning and essentially decent authority figure to {{Jerkass}} attention seeker to cowardly villain (though he still retains some of his mettle). It's shown that he longs for the old days of steam boat captaincy.
* ChronicVillainy: In the earliest time where he is seen as the true villain, "The Country of the Musketeers", he is arrested in the end by the Royal Musketeers. By the time Terra, Aqua, and Ventus arrive in Disney Town, presumably several years later, he seems to be seen as a relatively reasonable person, enough that it seems as though he was a ReformedCriminal. However, losing to Terra in a race leads to him once again undergoing a FaceHeelTurn. Depending on how one interprets Maleficent helping him out of the resulting PocketDimension, he may count as a less tragic version of DrivenToVillainy as well.
* CombatTropes
** BarrierWarrior
** CarFu: He knows some as Captain Dark and when you use his D-Link Terra, Aqua and Ven can too.
** FlunkyBoss: In ''3D'' where he has his henchmen the Beagle Boys, during his time as the Captain of the Royal Guard in the Country of the Musketeers.
** IKnowMaddenKombat: His battles involve [[MadeOfExplodium explosive bowling balls]].

Subverted in the end when he was able to conquer his fears in order to [[spoiler:help Sora and Mickey gets some time to defeat Xemnas by holding back the Heartless]].
** KnowWhenToFoldEm: In all fairness to Pete, he probably is perfectly aware of the fact that he can't really hold his own all that well against Nobodies. He's only following Maleficent because the alternative is worse.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Was temporarily banished to a PocketDimension by Queen Minnie for being rude and preparing to attack her for not giving him the victor's prize of ice cream in Disney Town.
* TheDragon: To Maleficent.
* EnemyMine: Twice. His past self put aside his (misunderstood) difficulties with Sora, Donald, and Goofy in order to help them fight his future self, so that he could get his boat back. Later, his present self helped [[spoiler:Sora and the King against Xemnas and the Heartless]].
* EvilChancellor: He was this to Minnie in the past as Captain of the Royal Guard in "Country of the Musketeers".
* FatBastard
* FatCat
* FatIdiot
* GoKartingWithBowser: An interesting version in that despite his obvious, if only slight malevolence, he's still not a bad guy when you race him in Birth By Sleep, having seemingly repented from his villainous days in the Country of the Musketeers (detailed in ''3D''). In fact, it's the race (or rather the fact that he lost) that causes him to pull a FaceHeelTurn ([[ChronicVillainy again]]).
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain
* JapanesePronouns: "Oresama".
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: "Past-Pete" before his alliance with Maleficent and the Heartless.

* MascotMook: The credits state at the end that Pete is one.
* ManipulativeBastard: Not particularly good at it, but he it's how he sows Heartless throughout the World.
* NostalgiaFilter: InUniverse. He seems to long for the good old days of steamboat captaincy, but, given the TimeTravel to Timeless River and [[HumiliationConga what happens to him]], he's probably just thinking it's better than his later situations.
* OnlyOneName
* RetCon: In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', it was stated that King Mickey banished Pete to another dimension, presumably for doing something ''really'' bad, and Maleficent broke him out. In ''Birth By Sleep'', however, Pete only throws a hissy fit, and ''Queen Minnie'' temporarily banishes him to another dimension "until he cools down" from what seemed to be a preparation to attack her... for ice cream. While there, Maleficent breaks him out in return for his service.
* RightHandCat: ''Technically'' he's this to Maleficent, being a cat.
* {{Sentai}}: In ''Birth by Sleep''.
** Results in a MixAndMatch of GoodCostumeSwitch and EvilCostumeSwitch: He's both Captain Justice and Captain Dark.
* VideogameCrueltyPotential: During his boss fight in Timeless River, if you combo Past!Pete, he will launch into the air and make a shockwave upon landing, he will then get up and yell ''[[WhatTheHellHero What's that for!?!]]'' before going back into the fray. but it is a bit of a subversion, as it doesn't have any substantial effect on either Pete (Present!Pete recieves little damage if this is done).
* YouShallNotPass: In ''Kingdom Hearts II'', during the endgame. He survives.

* BecomeARealBoy: His entire motivation.
* BerserkButton:
He has shown capable fighting ability, was controlling two -- getting anywhere near Naminé (Sora's storyline) and being called a "fake" (Reverse/Rebirth).

German version. Go figure.
* AntiHero: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes Type V]] at the same time as his boss. Like Maleficent, they only aided Sora and his friends during the game so that they could gain once the Organization XIII was toppled.
[[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile]]
* BeardOfEvil: In the Country of Musketeers.
GreenEyes
* BoisterousBruiser: HeelFaceTurn: At least his past-self, who ain't afraid to accept a fight when someone challenges him, whether it's Sora or his future-self. His future-self is to much of a coward to be this.
* BootstrappedLeitmotif: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QscpOLaF5sM Rowdy Rumble]], which in ''KingdomHeartsII'' was a generic mini-boss theme. This included, ''but was not exclusive to'', being played [[GoldfishPoopGang
during every battle]] with Pete, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCEdURkWH18 except the final]]. In the following games, however, the theme is invariably tied to the boss fights with Pete and usually little else, if anything.
Sora's storyline.
* CatsAreMean
* CharacterDevelopment: For better or for worse, he went from a well-meaning and essentially decent authority figure to {{Jerkass}} attention seeker to cowardly villain (though he still retains some of his mettle). It's shown that he longs for the old days of steam boat captaincy.
* ChronicVillainy: In the earliest time where he is seen as the true villain, "The Country of the Musketeers", he is arrested in the end by the Royal Musketeers. By the time Terra, Aqua, and Ventus arrive in Disney Town, presumably several years later, he seems to be seen as a relatively reasonable person, enough that it seems as though he was a ReformedCriminal. However, losing to Terra in a race leads to him once again undergoing a FaceHeelTurn. Depending on how one interprets Maleficent helping him out of the resulting PocketDimension, he may count as a less tragic version of DrivenToVillainy as well.
* CombatTropes
** BarrierWarrior
** CarFu: He knows some as Captain Dark and when you use his D-Link Terra, Aqua and Ven can too.
** FlunkyBoss: In ''3D'' where he has his henchmen the Beagle Boys, during his time as the Captain of the Royal Guard in the Country of the Musketeers.
** IKnowMaddenKombat: His battles involve [[MadeOfExplodium explosive bowling balls]].
** GoodOldFisticuffs
** GroundPound
** RecurringBoss
** RoyalRapier: In [[MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers Country of the Musketeers]] in ''3D''.

** TeleportSpam: In Re:coded.
** ThrowDownTheBomblet: In [[MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers Country of the Musketeers]] in ''3D''.
** TrapMaster: Can summon rigged blox in Re:coded.
* DirtyCoward: Made clear in the Battle of Hollow Bastion, where he [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere left Maleficent for herself]] with the Nobodies. Subverted in the end when he was able to conquer his fears in order to [[spoiler:help Sora and Mickey gets some time to defeat Xemnas by holding back the Heartless]].
** KnowWhenToFoldEm: In all fairness to Pete, he probably is perfectly aware of the fact that he can't really hold his own all that well against Nobodies. He's only following Maleficent because the alternative is worse.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Was temporarily banished to a PocketDimension by Queen Minnie for being rude and preparing to attack her for not giving him the victor's prize of ice cream in Disney Town.
* TheDragon: To Maleficent.
* EnemyMine: Twice. His past self put aside his (misunderstood) difficulties with Sora, Donald, and Goofy in order to help them fight his future self, so that he could get his boat back. Later, his present self helped [[spoiler:Sora and the King against Xemnas and the Heartless]].
* EvilChancellor: He was this to Minnie in the past as Captain of the Royal Guard in "Country of the Musketeers".
* FatBastard
* FatCat
* FatIdiot
* GoKartingWithBowser: An interesting version in that despite his obvious, if only slight malevolence, he's still not a bad guy when you race him in Birth By Sleep, having seemingly repented from his villainous days in the Country of the Musketeers (detailed in ''3D''). In fact, it's the race (or rather the fact that he lost) that causes him to pull a FaceHeelTurn ([[ChronicVillainy again]]).
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain
* JapanesePronouns: "Oresama".
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: "Past-Pete" before his alliance with Maleficent and the Heartless.
* LargeHam: Particularly as CAPTAIN JUSTICE!!!
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Just like in the film, he has a line to this effect in "Country of the Musketeers" in ''3D''.
-->'''Captain Pete''': How ''dare'' you [[BigDamnHeroes thwart me]] [[JustInTime just in the nick of time!]]
* MascotMook: The credits state at the end that Pete is one.
* ManipulativeBastard: Not particularly good at it, but he it's how he sows Heartless throughout the World.
* NostalgiaFilter: InUniverse. He seems to long for the good old days of steamboat captaincy, but, given the TimeTravel to Timeless River and [[HumiliationConga what happens to him]], he's probably just thinking it's better
HotBlooded: Maybe [[{{Flanderization}} even moreso]] than his later situations.
* OnlyOneName
* RetCon: In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', it was stated that King Mickey banished Pete to another dimension, presumably for doing something ''really'' bad,
Riku in ''KH'', and Maleficent broke him out. In ''Birth By Sleep'', however, Pete only throws a hissy fit, and ''Queen Minnie'' temporarily banishes him to another dimension "until he cools down" from what seemed to be a preparation to attack her... for ice cream. While there, Maleficent breaks him out in return for his service.
that's saying something.
* RightHandCat: ''Technically'' he's this to Maleficent, being a cat.
* {{Sentai}}: In ''Birth by Sleep''.
** Results in a MixAndMatch of GoodCostumeSwitch and EvilCostumeSwitch: He's both Captain Justice and Captain Dark.
* VideogameCrueltyPotential: During his boss fight in Timeless River, if you combo Past!Pete, he will launch into the air and make a shockwave upon landing, he will then get up and yell ''[[WhatTheHellHero What's that for!?!]]'' before going back into the fray. but it is a bit of a subversion, as it doesn't have any substantial effect on either Pete (Present!Pete recieves little damage if this is done).
* YouShallNotPass: In ''Kingdom Hearts II'', during the endgame. He survives.

The famous ''FinalFantasyVII'' villain appears as
a gigantic, muscular, humanoid demon. His skin is entirely colored black, fiendishly hard optional boss in both ''Kingdom Hearts'' and he is so large ''Kingdom Hearts II''. In the latter, there's a bit of a subplot with him and Cloud -- in the former, Cloud mentions that Sora is roughly he's "looking for someone", but the size of his head. His head sports two curved horns, he has four fangs in his mouth, and his eyes are a glowing yellow. He has enormous, black, bat-like wings, and his wingspan is larger than he is tall.

"Anger... hatred... corruption, become power. Everything that exists, will be devoured!"
--> [[spoiler:—'''Data-Sora's Heartless''']]

The true antagonists
of the Grid. story, Heartless are creatures of darkness born from the hearts within humans. They are driven only by instinct to seize hearts from other beings and destroy them, either by attacking them or manipulating them into darkness, creating more Heartless in the processs. As worlds also have hearts, this inevitably means they are drawn to worlds to destroy the world's heart and plunge it into darkness. Heartless come in two varieties -- Pureblood, formed naturally, and Emblem, formed by forced production.

According to legend, only the Keyblade wielder can stop the Heartless, able to lock the hearts of worlds from their reach, and when a Heartless is killed by a Keyblade its captive heart is freed. Thus the Heartless instinctively seek out Keyblade wielders to strike them down.
-----
* AdorableEvilMinions: Albeit with a few genuinely scary exceptions.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil
* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: They're born from the darkness, and so long even a single heart has a bit of darkness in it, they'll always exist.
However, following it was only due to Xehanort's experiments that they were able to invade the Realm of Light, their inactivity in ''Birth By Sleep'' suggests perhaps they could be marginalized in the Realm of Darkness again.
* BiggerBad: As the very embodiments of darkness and the main reason so many people and worlds are destroyed, they're the most significant evil force in the game universe. However as creatures of instinct with infinite numbers they aren't actual "villains" in terms of plot, thus the actual villain roles go to human characters.
* BishonenLine: Zigzagged. Several of the strongest Heartless (Invisible, Neo Shadow, Darkside, etc) look more humanoid than their lesser counterparts, and Xehanort's Heartless, the most powerful Heartless of all, looks entirely human. On the other hand most Heartless including bosses look like monsters.
* CuteBruiser: Most of them look too cute to be an army of bloodthirsty creatures.
* EldritchAbomination
** LovecraftLite: No one actually has [[GoMadFromTheRevelation an epic grade]] FreakOut when they show up, and even the most powerful of them can still be defeated.

->"Just wait! Nobody, and I do mean nobody, messes with The Mighty Pete!"
-->Voiced by: ToruOhira (Japanese), JimCummings (English)

[[MyFriendsAndZoidberg There is also Pete]]. Once a humble steamboat captain, Pete turned to mischief-making until he got out of hand and was banished. He met Maleficent during his inter-dimensional exile and acts as her loyal servant.
-----
* TheAce: A minor, villainous example, but an example nontheless. He has shown capable fighting ability, was controlling the heartless for a long time (possibly longer than his mistress, but that seems unlikely), apparently has a strong heart, has magical abilities, has experiance with explosives, can attack with cars, had enough swordplay experiance to become captain of Queen Minnie's Musketeers, was the responsible captain of a steamboat, is able to manipulate others (to a degree), and has hacked and used technology and glitches to try and rule the worlds in a journal.
* AntiHero: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes Type V]] at the same time as his boss. Like Maleficent, they only aided Sora and his friends during the game so that they could gain once the Organization XIII was toppled.
* BeardOfEvil: In the Country of Musketeers.
* BoisterousBruiser: At least his past-self, who ain't afraid to accept a fight when someone challenges him, whether it's Sora or his future-self. His future-self is to much of a coward to be this.
* BootstrappedLeitmotif: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QscpOLaF5sM Rowdy Rumble]], which in ''KingdomHeartsII'' was a generic mini-boss theme. This included, ''but was not exclusive to'', being played [[GoldfishPoopGang during every battle]] with Pete, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCEdURkWH18 except the final]]. In the following games, however, the theme is invariably tied to the boss fights with Pete and usually little else, if anything.
* CatsAreMean
* CharacterDevelopment: For better or for worse, he went from a well-meaning and essentially decent authority figure to {{Jerkass}} attention seeker to cowardly villain (though he still retains some of his mettle). It's shown that he longs for the old days of steam boat captaincy.
* ChronicVillainy: In the earliest time where he is seen as the true villain, "The Country of the Musketeers", he is arrested in the end by the Royal Musketeers. By the time Terra, Aqua, and Ventus arrive in Disney Town, presumably several years later, he seems to be seen as a relatively reasonable person, enough that it seems as though he was a ReformedCriminal. However, losing to Terra in a race leads to him once again undergoing a FaceHeelTurn. Depending on how one interprets Maleficent helping him out of the resulting PocketDimension, he may count as a less tragic version of DrivenToVillainy as well.
* CombatTropes
** BarrierWarrior
** CarFu: He knows some as Captain Dark and when you use his D-Link Terra, Aqua and Ven can too.
** FlunkyBoss: In ''3D'' where he has his henchmen the Beagle Boys, during his time as the Captain of the Royal Guard in the Country of the Musketeers.
** IKnowMaddenKombat: His battles involve [[MadeOfExplodium explosive bowling balls]].
** GoodOldFisticuffs
** GroundPound
** RecurringBoss
** RoyalRapier: In [[MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers Country of the Musketeers]] in ''3D''.
** ShockAndAwe: Can use D-Thundaga in Re:coded which also is an example of RideTheLightning.
** StoutStrength
** TeleportSpam: In Re:coded.
** ThrowDownTheBomblet: In [[MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers Country of the Musketeers]] in ''3D''.
** TrapMaster: Can summon rigged blox in Re:coded.
* DirtyCoward: Made clear in the Battle of Hollow Bastion, where he [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere left Maleficent for herself]] with the Nobodies. Subverted in the end when he was able to conquer his fears in order to [[spoiler:help Sora and Mickey gets some time to defeat Xemnas by holding back the Heartless]].
** KnowWhenToFoldEm: In all fairness to Pete, he probably is perfectly aware of the fact that he can't really hold his own all that well against Nobodies. He's only following Maleficent because the alternative is worse.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Was temporarily banished to a PocketDimension by Queen Minnie for being rude and preparing to attack her for not giving him the victor's prize of ice cream in Disney Town.
* TheDragon: To Maleficent.
* EnemyMine: Twice. His past self put aside his (misunderstood) difficulties with Sora, Donald, and Goofy in order to help them fight his future self, so that he could get his boat back. Later, his present self helped [[spoiler:Sora and the King against Xemnas and the Heartless]].
* EvilChancellor: He was this to Minnie in the past as Captain of the Royal Guard in "Country of the Musketeers".
* FatBastard
* FatCat
* FatIdiot
* GoKartingWithBowser: An interesting version in that despite his obvious, if only slight malevolence, he's still not a bad guy when you race him in Birth By Sleep, having seemingly repented from his villainous days in the Country of the Musketeers (detailed in ''3D''). In fact, it's the race (or rather the fact that he lost) that causes him to pull a FaceHeelTurn ([[ChronicVillainy again]]).
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain
* JapanesePronouns: "Oresama".
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: "Past-Pete" before his alliance with Maleficent and the Heartless.
* LargeHam: Particularly as CAPTAIN JUSTICE!!!
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Just like in the film, he has a line to this effect in "Country of the Musketeers" in ''3D''.
-->'''Captain Pete''': How ''dare'' you [[BigDamnHeroes thwart me]] [[JustInTime just in the nick of time!]]
* MascotMook: The credits state at the end that Pete is one.
* ManipulativeBastard: Not particularly good at it, but he it's how he sows Heartless throughout the World.
* NostalgiaFilter: InUniverse. He seems to long for the good old days of steamboat captaincy, but, given the TimeTravel to Timeless River and [[HumiliationConga what happens to him]], he's probably just thinking it's better than his later situations.
* OnlyOneName
* RetCon: In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', it was stated that King Mickey banished Pete to another dimension, presumably for doing something ''really'' bad, and Maleficent broke him out. In ''Birth By Sleep'', however, Pete only throws a hissy fit, and ''Queen Minnie'' temporarily banishes him to another dimension "until he cools down" from what seemed to be a preparation to attack her... for ice cream. While there, Maleficent breaks him out in return for his service.
* RightHandCat: ''Technically'' he's this to Maleficent, being a cat.
* {{Sentai}}: In ''Birth by Sleep''.
** Results in a MixAndMatch of GoodCostumeSwitch and EvilCostumeSwitch: He's
both light Captain Justice and dark Captain Dark.
* VideogameCrueltyPotential: During his boss fight in Timeless River, if you combo Past!Pete,
he dwells. Where war was waged will launch into the air and make a shockwave upon landing, he will then get up and yell ''[[WhatTheHellHero What's that for!?!]]'' before going back into the fells.fray. but it is a bit of a subversion, as it doesn't have any substantial effect on either Pete (Present!Pete recieves little damage if this is done).
* YouShallNotPass: In ''Kingdom Hearts II'', during the endgame. He survives.

!The Heartless

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kh_shadow.png]]
[[caption-width-right:250:The cutest EldritchAbomination you'll ever see.]]

-> "Anger... hatred... corruption, become power. Everything that exists, will be devoured!"
--> [[spoiler:—'''Data-Sora's Heartless''']]

The true antagonists of the story, Heartless are creatures of darkness born from the hearts within humans. They are driven only by instinct to seize hearts from other beings and destroy them, either by attacking them or manipulating them into darkness, creating more Heartless in the processs. As worlds also have hearts, this inevitably means they are drawn to worlds to destroy the world's heart and plunge it into darkness. Heartless come in two varieties -- Pureblood, formed naturally, and Emblem, formed by forced production.

According to legend, only the Keyblade wielder can stop the Heartless, able to lock the hearts of worlds from their reach, and when a Heartless is killed by a Keyblade its captive heart is freed. Thus the Heartless instinctively seek out Keyblade wielders to strike them down.
-----
* AdorableEvilMinions: Albeit with a few genuinely scary exceptions.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil
* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: They're born from the darkness, and so long even a single heart has a bit of darkness in it, they'll always exist. However, it was only due to Xehanort's experiments that they were able to invade the Realm of Light, their inactivity in ''Birth By Sleep'' suggests perhaps they could be marginalized in the Realm of Darkness again.
* BiggerBad: As the very embodiments of darkness and the main reason so many people and worlds are destroyed, they're the most significant evil force in the game universe. However as creatures of instinct with infinite numbers they aren't actual "villains" in terms of plot, thus the actual villain roles go to human characters.
* BishonenLine: Zigzagged. Several of the strongest Heartless (Invisible, Neo Shadow, Darkside, etc) look more humanoid than their lesser counterparts, and Xehanort's Heartless, the most powerful Heartless of all, looks entirely human. On the other hand most Heartless including bosses look like monsters.
* CuteBruiser: Most of them look too cute to be an army of bloodthirsty creatures.
* EldritchAbomination
** LovecraftLite: No one actually has [[GoMadFromTheRevelation an epic grade]] FreakOut when they show up, and even the most powerful of them can still be defeated.
* EliteMook: Invisibles are universally the strongest pureblood Heartless short of Darksides and other bosses. The strongest Emblem Heartless varies, but the Angel Star and Defender are commonly among the toughest.
* EyesOfGold
* EnemyMine: They stop fighting against the Nobodies during the Battle of Hollow Bastion any time Sora shows up, but also ally with Organization XIII at one point.
* FisherKingdom: While the Pureblood Heartless keep their appearances in all worlds, Emblem Heartless change their appearance to reflect the world they're in. As a result they can appear as almost anything, from cars to sorcerers to ghosts to plants.
* GiantMook: At least one a game, such as the Large Body or Fat Bandit. They also NoSell against front attacks.
* TheHeartless: The TropeNamer.
* IFightForTheStrongestSide: In the words of Saix, the Heartless ally with whoever's the strongest, which is why [[spoiler:most of them defect from Maleficent's service to ally with the Organization.]]
* TheLegionsOfHell
* LightIsNotGood: The Angel Stars.
* MadeOfEvil
* ManipulativeBastard: They've no problems taking advantages of people's inner greed and anger; even Maleficent, a ManipulativeBastard herself, was manipulated by them.
* MetalSlime: Various mushroom-type Heartless, usually rare and/or hard to kill, but yield great rewards.
* OurMonstersAreWeird
* PaletteSwap: Many of them have recolored stronger forms. The music-themed spellcasters ''all'' share the same appearance aside from color.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Their sigil is a black heart with jagged red lines. Many stronger Heartless add red, purple and blue to their color scheme.
* SlasherSmile: Some of them have those.
** JaggedMouth : Goes with the SlasherSmile
* SigilSpam: Emblem Heartless, who the apprentices branded to further distinguish them from the naturally-occuring "Pureblood" ones; presumably either the apprentices or Maleficent are responsible for the enormous emblem on the Hollow Bastion castle.
* ThemeNaming: The mushroom type Heartless are called "Color Fungus-type" (Blue Truffle, Gold Tricholoma), while the floating spellcaster Heartless are "Color Music-type" (Emerald Blues, Crimson Jazz).
* TheUsualAdversaries
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: They always ally with the strongest villains to further their goals of conquest. Those villains who are too weak are abandoned or brought into their ranks.
* YouHaveFailedMe: See above trope.
* ZergRush: Their main "strategy". Since Sora is basically a OneManArmy, it usually fails.

-> "A Nobody doesn't have a right to know. Nor does it even have the right to be."
-->'''[=DiZ=]'''

What's left behind when a heart is lost. Don't take "Nobody" literally: they ''are'' the body (and ill-defined "soul") of the person, though usually warped to something unrecognizable as human. Those who had the strongest will before losing their heart, however, can retain human form: see Organization XIII. We're told they lack emotion and feeling, but the fandom disagrees on this issue. [[spoiler:They're half-right; [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance 3D]] reveals that Nobodies start out with no hearts, but can regain them over time. Xehanort kept this fact secret from the entire Organization as part of his overall scheme to collect thirteen empty vessels to house his own heart.]]

They come in far fewer 'types' than the Heartless; Dusks and Creepers fill the 'generic mook' role, with every other breed of Nobody corresponding to an Organization member in some way.
-----
* ColdSniper: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Snipers.]]
* DanceBattler: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Dancers]].
* EliteMooks: To the Heartless. Nobodies are only born when particularly strong hearts are lost, so they're not as common as Heartless but are more powerful and have some minor form of intelligence instead of just going on instinct.
* EmptyShell
* EvilWeapon: Berserkers wield "cursed hammers". This probably explains the "[[UnstoppableRage Berserk]]" [[ActionCommands Reaction Command]] and the fact that it seems to drag them around.
* TheFaceless: Most varieties, but look closely at the Dragoons.
* FantasticRacism: Not ''by'' them, but rather ''of'' them. Most anyone who talks about Nobodies, up to and including Sora, talks about them as being emotionless abominations that do not deserve to exist, often in arguments with members of the Organization XIII themselves. This is most prominent in ''II'', but is toned down in later ones, to the point where in ''3D'', Sora's next outing with Riku, Sora is appalled by injustices done to the Organization XIII by [[spoiler:Xemnas himself]], and [[spoiler:tells Roxas that he always wanted to tell him he deserves as much as anyone to be his own person, not just to be Sora]].
* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: How [[ActionCommands Reaction Commands]] around lesser Nobodies seem to operate, using their own powers against them.
* HumanoidAbomination: In direct opposition to TheHeartless (who take on more monstrous forms as they become stronger), the strongest Nobodies [[BishonenLine are human-like in appearance]]. They also move and walk in ways that highlight how ''un''-human they are, such as "swimming" through solid matter or walking on air. Characters in ''II'' also comment that by the nature of their existences, they are unnatural abominations that should not exist, though later games have toned down the FantasticRacism.
* IntangibleMan: Assassins can phase through solid objects.
* [[spoiler:ItWasWithYouAllAlong: As Dream Drop Distance reveals, Xemnas lied about the nature of Nobodies to further the Xehanorts' schemes. Nobodies do start without hearts, but as they connect to others, they develop emotion, and can grow new ones. By refusing to accept their own emotions and connections, the hearts are suppressed, allowing others to [[AssimilationPlot put their own in their place]].]]
* NiceHat: Dancers wear one.
* PowerOfTheVoid: Sorcerers attack with HardLight cubes of PureEnergy, being Xemnas' personal type. Also technically, all Nobodies are beings born of nothingness.
* ShapeshifterWeapon: Creepers shapeshift into various forms freely, including swords and spears.
* SigilSpam: An inverted Heartless / Mark of Mastery logo based on [[spoiler:Master Xehanort's armor]]. You could make a drinking game out of how many Nobody symbols there are decorating the Organization's castle, but you'd probably keel over before reaching the top.
* ThemeNaming: Except for [[{{Mooks}} Dusks and Creepers]], all the "lower" Nobody types are named after ''Final Fantasy'' job classes.
* UncannyValley: An InvokedTrope in how the lesser Nobodies move, ways that seem wholly unnatural.
* UndyingLoyalty: Implied in the Dusk fight in ''II'' if taking into account Roxas' [[DefectorFromDecadence actions]] at the end of ''Days''. The Dusk Roxas fights still calls him "my liege", in spite of the fact that Roxas abandoned the Nobodies. Also, late in ''II'', upon coming to The World That Never Was, Roxas still has control of [[spoiler:Samurai Nobodies, in spite of fighting them on the way out of the Castle That Never Was weeks prior]]. An exception seems to have been made for [[spoiler:Axel and his Assassins]], however, so perhaps it was just Roxas, or because the situation was less dire for the Organization XIII as a whole at the time.

The Unversed are a horde of fledgling emotions that feed on negativity and have taken monster form. When Yen Sid informs him of their appearance, Eraqus charges Terra and Aqua with wiping them out.

[[caption-width-right:250:[[ObviouslyEvil Guess which one is the Nightmare]].]]

The Dream Eaters are the Heartless to the worlds in sleep. Sleeping worlds can't be invaded by the Heartless, so when a Heartless would normally be born in such worlds, a Dream Eater is created instead. They come in two varieties -- Spirits, who are friendly, and Nightmares, who are malicious.
----
* AdorableEvilMinions: Zigzagged. Spirits are all cute or at least friendly-looking, but Nightmares run the gamut from just as cute to genuinely threatening.
* AdventurerOutfit: As its name would suggest, Iceguin Ace's attire resembles an ace pilot.
* AstralProjection: Aura Lion and Keeba Tiger.
* BearsAreBadNews[=/=]PandaingToTheAudience: Kooma Panda can invoke both with its Nightmare and Spirit variations.
* BigFriendlyDog[=/=]MegaNeko: Meow Wow, Flowbermeow, and Meowjesty.
* ABoyAndHisX: Not only are Spirit-Type Dream Eater recruitable and can be raised like pets, Sora and Riku also develope quite adorable relationships with their starter Dream Eaters, Meow Wow and Komory Bat, the first of which Sora ends up lovingly nicknaming "Eata". [[spoiler: Sora ends up keeping all his Dream Eaters for companionship in the end, when he decides to embark on a journey on his own.]]
* {{Cephalothorax}}: Pricklemane.
* CuteKitten: Necho Cat and Frootz Cat.
* DarkIsNotEvil: They're expressions of darkness, just like the Heartless, but many are perfectly non-antagonistic.
* DemBones: Skelterild and Fishboné.
* DePower: Staggercep Dream Eaters have an attack that can prevent Sora and Riku from using commands.
* DetachmentCombat: Skelterild and Fishboné.
* EldritchAbomination
** LovecraftLite: See DarkIsNotEvil above.
* ElementalEmbodiment: Of Darkness, more or less-they aren't actually corrupted hearts like the Heartless, they seem to be creations of Darkness itself, devoid of any foreign influence.
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: Brawlimari.
* EverythingsWorseWithBees: Queen Buzzerfly.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin[=/=]YouAreTheTranslatedForeignWord: The Japanese names of the different species tend to be very cut-and-dried or bilingually redundant. The English version's names, when not [[{{Woolseyism}} adapting puns]], retain this redundancy, but tend to go for [[MyNaymeIs odd spellings for the Japanese portion of the name]], such as adapting "Kaeru Chef" as "Chef Kyroo".
* {{Expy}}: Story-wise, mentioned in-universe; it's mentioned that they're the equivalent of Heartless in places where the Heartless can't spawn. Gameplay-wise, they avert it though; while Nobodies and Unversed had equalients[=/=]analogues to certain Heartless enemies, the Dream Eaters lack any of those.
* EyesOfGold: Spirits apparently have golden eyes when in a neutral mood but can change to turquoise or green in other circumstances.
* FeatheredFiend: Halbird, Eaglider.
* FrogsAndToads: The Kyroo series. [[spoiler:The Lord Kyroo is a BonusBoss.]]
* HairRaisingHare: Me Me Bunny and Majik Lapin.
* TheHeartless: Much like their TropeNamer cousins. Inverted for Spirits, who are born of powerful ''positive'' emotions, and [[DarkIsNotEvil it shows]].
* LightEmUp: Dream Eaters such as Pegaslick can use light based attacks such as Spark.
* LightIsNotGood: Some Nightmares such as Pegaslick are able to use light-based attacks.
* LuckyTranslation[=/=]{{Woolseyism}}: A little bit of column A, a little bit of column B. Wandanyan's name doesn't simply mean Wonder Meow, but it is also a pun on the onomatopoeia for a dog's bark, (wanwan). By using the English onomatopoeia "bow wow" for the pun, they were able to keep the spirit of Wandanyan's name as Meow Wow.
* ManiacMonkeys: Hockomonkey.
* MonsterClown: Jestabocky. Their Japanese name, "Obake Pierrot", is basically a direct translation of the trope's name.
** NonIronicClown: Their Spirit versions.
* ObviouslyEvil: It's not exactly difficult to tell a Nightmare from a Spirit.
* OwlBeDamned: Peepsta Hoo.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Ryu Dragon and Drak Quack.
* OurGargoylesRock: Wargoyle.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: Jestabocky and Ghostaboky.
* PaletteSwap: The Spirits and Nightmares are this to each other. They're both brightly colored, but Spirits tend to be pink, turquoise, and white while Nightmares tend to be purple, yellow, and black. There are also special Nightmare variants that use paler colors than regular Nightmares.
* PantheraAwesome: Aura Lion and Keeba Lion.
* {{Pegasus}}: Pegaslick.
* PiranhaProblem: Fin Fatale and Fishboné.

* SeahorseSteed: Sora can invoke this trope with Tatsu Steed and Tatsu Blaze.

[[caption-width-right:330:"I am TheChosenOne! [[DeadlyEuphemism I shall lead you to the Promised Land!]]"]]
-> "The light doesn't suit you!"
--> Voiced by: ToshiyukiMorikawa (Japanese), Lance Bass/George Newbern (English)

The famous ''FinalFantasyVII'' villain appears as a fiendishly hard optional boss in both ''Kingdom Hearts'' and ''Kingdom Hearts II''. In the latter, there's a bit of a subplot with him and Cloud -- in the former, Cloud mentions that he's "looking for someone", but the two only interact in a cut-scene added to the Final Mix.

See also [[Characters/FinalFantasyVII his Final Fantasy VII traits.]]
-----
* BonusBoss: Though his ThatOneBoss status is diminished in ''[[NoExportForYou Final Mix+]]'' by the introduction of Terra, [[spoiler:Roxas]], and the Data Organization XIII.
* {{Bishounen}}: When he was voiced by Lace Bass his combat dialogue showed hints of it.
* ColonyDrop: His most powerful attacks involve meteors, naturally, though they're on a ''Dissidia'' scale rather than the planet-crushing one from ''VII''.
* EnemyWithout: It is heavily implied, if not outright stated, that he's the physical embodiment of Cloud's own darkness rather than the "real" Sephiroth.
* EstrogenBrigadeBait: Come on, it's ''Sephiroth''.
* HeyItsThatVoice: It's jarring hearing [[JusticeLeague Superman]] taunt you in battle.
** It's less jarring when you take into account that in his previous appearance, it was Lance Bass taunting you in battle.
* JapanesePronouns: "Watashi"
* NeverSayDie: Pseudo-example, his declaration in the first game of "I will lead you to the Promised Land" becomes [[FridgeHorror more threatening]] when you remember that most interpreations of the "Promised Land" in ''VII'' were that it was TheLifestream.
* OneHitKill: Or more like a One Hit Combo Kill, if you don't know what you're doing.
** Can happen literally in the first game if you're underleveled/unprepared, seeing as Sephiroth uses ''no combo attacks'' sans a LimitBreak very similar to Cloud's Omnislash.
* OneWingedAngel: Notably averted, despite being the TropeNamer. This seems to be a trend [[DissidiaFinalFantasy in recent years]] (with the exception of the hip wings). If you're being literal, he has one wing in the first game and three in KHII - on the other hand, the hip-wings do make an interesting callback to his actual OneWingedAngel form.
* [[OnlyICanKillHim Only Cloud Can Kill Me]]
* OnlyOneName
* PerpetualMolt
* PlayingWithFire: [[RuleOfCool Just because]], though it's possibly an application of EvilIsBurningHot.

Everything that exists, will be devoured!"\n--> [[spoiler:—'''Data-Sora's Heartless''']]\n\nThe true antagonists of the story, Heartless are creatures of darkness born from the hearts within humans. They are driven only by instinct to seize hearts from other beings and destroy them, either by attacking them or manipulating them into darkness, creating more Heartless in the processs. As worlds also have hearts, this inevitably means they are drawn to worlds to destroy the world's heart and plunge it into darkness. Heartless come in two varieties -- Pureblood, formed naturally, and Emblem, formed by forced production.\n\nAccording to legend, only the Keyblade wielder can stop the Heartless, able to lock the hearts of worlds from their reach, and when a Heartless is killed by a Keyblade its captive heart is freed. Thus the Heartless instinctively seek out Keyblade wielders to strike them down.\n-----\n* AdorableEvilMinions: Albeit with a few genuinely scary exceptions.\n* AlwaysChaoticEvil\n* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: They're born from the darkness, and so long even a single heart has a bit of darkness in it, they'll always exist. However, it was only due to Xehanort's experiments that they were able to invade the Realm of Light, their inactivity in ''Birth By Sleep'' suggests perhaps they could be marginalized in the Realm of Darkness again.\n* BiggerBad: As the very embodiments of darkness and the main reason so many people and worlds are destroyed, they're the most significant evil force in the game universe. However as creatures of instinct with infinite numbers they aren't actual "villains" in terms of plot, thus the actual villain roles go to human characters.\n* BishonenLine: Zigzagged. Several of the strongest Heartless (Invisible, Neo Shadow, Darkside, etc) look more humanoid than their lesser counterparts, and Xehanort's Heartless, the most powerful Heartless of all, looks entirely human. On the other hand most Heartless including bosses look like monsters.\n* CuteBruiser: Most of them look too cute to be an army of bloodthirsty creatures.\n* EldritchAbomination\n** LovecraftLite: No one actually has [[GoMadFromTheRevelation an epic grade]] FreakOut when they show up, and even the most powerful of them can still be defeated.\n* EliteMook: Invisibles are universally the strongest pureblood Heartless short of Darksides and other bosses. The strongest Emblem Heartless varies, but the Angel Star and Defender are commonly among the toughest.\n* EyesOfGold\n* EnemyMine: They stop fighting against the Nobodies during the Battle of Hollow Bastion any time Sora shows up, but also ally with Organization XIII at one point.\n* FisherKingdom: While the Pureblood Heartless keep their appearances in all worlds, Emblem Heartless change their appearance to reflect the world they're in. As a result they can appear as almost anything, from cars to sorcerers to ghosts to plants.\n* GiantMook: At least one a game, such as the Large Body or Fat Bandit. They also NoSell against front attacks.\n* TheHeartless: The TropeNamer.\n* IFightForTheStrongestSide: In the words of Saix, the Heartless ally with whoever's the strongest, which is why [[spoiler:most of them defect from Maleficent's service to ally with the Organization.]]\n* TheLegionsOfHell\n* LightIsNotGood: The Angel Stars.\n* MadeOfEvil\n* ManipulativeBastard: They've no problems taking advantages of people's inner greed and anger; even Maleficent, a ManipulativeBastard herself, was manipulated by them.\n* MetalSlime: Various mushroom-type Heartless, usually rare and/or hard to kill, but yield great rewards.\n* OurMonstersAreWeird\n* PaletteSwap: Many of them have recolored stronger forms. The music-themed spellcasters ''all'' share the same appearance aside from color.\n* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Their sigil is a black heart with jagged red lines. Many stronger Heartless add red, purple and blue to their color scheme.\n* SlasherSmile: Some of them have those.\n** JaggedMouth : Goes with the SlasherSmile\n* SigilSpam: Emblem Heartless, who the apprentices branded to further distinguish them from the naturally-occuring "Pureblood" ones; presumably either the apprentices or Maleficent are responsible for the enormous emblem on the Hollow Bastion castle.\n* ThemeNaming: The mushroom type Heartless are called "Color Fungus-type" (Blue Truffle, Gold Tricholoma), while the floating spellcaster Heartless are "Color Music-type" (Emerald Blues, Crimson Jazz).\n* TheUsualAdversaries\n* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: They always ally with the strongest villains to further their goals of conquest. Those villains who are too weak are abandoned or brought into their ranks.\n* YouHaveFailedMe: See above trope.\n* ZergRush: Their main "strategy". Since Sora is basically a OneManArmy, it usually fails.\n[[/folder]]\n\n[[folder:Nobodies]]\n!The Nobodies\n[[quoteright:176:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/280px-Dusk_KHII_6997.png]]\n\n-> "A Nobody doesn't have a right to know. Nor does it even have the right to be."\n-->'''[=DiZ=]'''\n\nWhat's left behind when a heart is lost. Don't take "Nobody" literally: they ''are'' the body (and ill-defined "soul") of the person, though usually warped to something unrecognizable as human. Those who had the strongest will before losing their heart, however, can retain human form: see Organization XIII. We're told they lack emotion and feeling, but the fandom disagrees on this issue. [[spoiler:They're half-right; [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance 3D]] reveals that Nobodies start out with no hearts, but can regain them over time. Xehanort kept this fact secret from the entire Organization as part of his overall scheme to collect thirteen empty vessels to house his own heart.]]\n\nThey come in far fewer 'types' than the Heartless; Dusks and Creepers fill the 'generic mook' role, with every other breed of Nobody corresponding to an Organization member in some way.\n-----\n* ColdSniper: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Snipers.]]\n* DanceBattler: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Dancers]].\n* EliteMooks: To the Heartless. Nobodies are only born when particularly strong hearts are lost, so they're not as common as Heartless but are more powerful and have some minor form of intelligence instead of just going on instinct.\n* EmptyShell\n* EvilWeapon: Berserkers wield "cursed hammers". This probably explains the "[[UnstoppableRage Berserk]]" [[ActionCommands Reaction Command]] and the fact that it seems to drag them around.\n* TheFaceless: Most varieties, but look closely at the Dragoons.\n* FantasticRacism: Not ''by'' them, but rather ''of'' them. Most anyone who talks about Nobodies, up to and including Sora, talks about them as being emotionless abominations that do not deserve to exist, often in arguments with members of the Organization XIII themselves. This is most prominent in ''II'', but is toned down in later ones, to the point where in ''3D'', Sora's next outing with Riku, Sora is appalled by injustices done to the Organization XIII by [[spoiler:Xemnas himself]], and [[spoiler:tells Roxas that he always wanted to tell him he deserves as much as anyone to be his own person, not just to be Sora]].\n* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: How [[ActionCommands Reaction Commands]] around lesser Nobodies seem to operate, using their own powers against them.\n* HumanoidAbomination: In direct opposition to TheHeartless (who take on more monstrous forms as they become stronger), the strongest Nobodies [[BishonenLine are human-like in appearance]]. They also move and walk in ways that highlight how ''un''-human they are, such as "swimming" through solid matter or walking on air. Characters in ''II'' also comment that by the nature of their existences, they are unnatural abominations that should not exist, though later games have toned down the FantasticRacism.\n* IntangibleMan: Assassins can phase through solid objects.\n* [[spoiler:ItWasWithYouAllAlong: As Dream Drop Distance reveals, Xemnas lied about the nature of Nobodies to further the Xehanorts' schemes. Nobodies do start without hearts, but as they connect to others, they develop emotion, and can grow new ones. By refusing to accept their own emotions and connections, the hearts are suppressed, allowing others to [[AssimilationPlot put their own in their place]].]]\n* NiceHat: Dancers wear one.\n* PowerOfTheVoid: Sorcerers attack with HardLight cubes of PureEnergy, being Xemnas' personal type. Also technically, all Nobodies are beings born of nothingness.\n* ShapeshifterWeapon: Creepers shapeshift into various forms freely, including swords and spears.\n* SigilSpam: An inverted Heartless / Mark of Mastery logo based on [[spoiler:Master Xehanort's armor]]. You could make a drinking game out of how many Nobody symbols there are decorating the Organization's castle, but you'd probably keel over before reaching the top. \n* ThemeNaming: Except for [[{{Mooks}} Dusks and Creepers]], all the "lower" Nobody types are named after ''Final Fantasy'' job classes.\n* UncannyValley: An InvokedTrope in how the lesser Nobodies move, ways that seem wholly unnatural.\n* UndyingLoyalty: Implied in the Dusk fight in ''II'' if taking into account Roxas' [[DefectorFromDecadence actions]] at the end of ''Days''. The Dusk Roxas fights still calls him "my liege", in spite of the fact that Roxas abandoned the Nobodies. Also, late in ''II'', upon coming to The World That Never Was, Roxas still has control of [[spoiler:Samurai Nobodies, in spite of fighting them on the way out of the Castle That Never Was weeks prior]]. An exception seems to have been made for [[spoiler:Axel and his Assassins]], however, so perhaps it was just Roxas, or because the situation was less dire for the Organization XIII as a whole at the time.\n* TheUsualAdversaries\n* WeaponOfChoice:\n** BarefistedMonk: Dancers.\n** {{BFS}}[=/=]DropTheHammer: Berserkers.\n** BladeBelowTheShoulder: Assassins, all down their arms.\n** BladeOnAStick: Dragoons.\n** DeathDealer: Gamblers.\n** NaturalWeapon: Dusks.\n** PureEnergy: Sorcerers.\n** DualWielding[=/=]KatanasAreJustBetter: Samurai.\n** ShapeshifterWeapon: Creepers (see above).\n** SniperRifle: Snipers.\n[[/folder]]\n\n[[folder:Unversed]]\n!The Unversed\n[[quoteright:170:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/The_Unversed_8946.png]]\n\n->"The negativity took shape as these monsters. They are [[spoiler:what I feel]] -— a horde of fledgling emotions under my control."\n--> [[spoiler:'''Vanitas''']]\n\nThe Unversed are a horde of fledgling emotions that feed on negativity and have taken monster form. When Yen Sid informs him of their appearance, Eraqus charges Terra and Aqua with wiping them out. [[spoiler:They came into being when Ventus and Vanitas were split in two and are really extensions of what Vanitas feels. When Vanitas is destroyed, they cease to exist.]]\n-----\n* EmotionEater: They apparently feed on negative emotions, though this is largely an InformedAbility.\n* EldritchAbomination\n* {{Expy}}[=/=]SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: In terms of appearance and behaviour, there really isn't much that separates the Unversed from the Heartless. Of course, ''Birth by Sleep'' takes place before the Heartless were a world-spanning threat, so the Heartless themselves couldn't be used.\n** One could argue that they are extremely similar to [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou The Noise]], after all; both of them are extensions of negative emotions and appear to be very similar in design.\n* TheHeartless\n* MadeOfEvil\n* NoOntologicalInertia: [[spoiler:Once Vanitas is destroyed, barring GameplayAndStorySegregation in the Final Episode, the Unversed vanish from the worlds]].\n* RedEyesTakeWarning\n* TheUsualAdversaries\n\n!The Dream Eaters\n[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/KH_Dream_Eater_9786.png]]\n[[caption-width-right:250:[[ObviouslyEvil Guess which one is the Nightmare]].]]\n\nThe Dream Eaters are the Heartless to the worlds in sleep. Sleeping worlds can't be invaded by the Heartless, so when a Heartless would normally be born in such worlds, a Dream Eater is created instead. They come in two varieties -- Spirits, who are friendly, and Nightmares, who are malicious.\n----\n* AdorableEvilMinions: Zigzagged. Spirits are all cute or at least friendly-looking, but Nightmares run the gamut from just as cute to genuinely threatening.\n* AdventurerOutfit: As its name would suggest, Iceguin Ace's attire resembles an ace pilot.\n* AstralProjection: Aura Lion and Keeba Tiger.\n* BearsAreBadNews[=/=]PandaingToTheAudience: Kooma Panda can invoke both with its Nightmare and Spirit variations.\n* BigFriendlyDog[=/=]MegaNeko: Meow Wow, Flowbermeow, and Meowjesty.\n* ABoyAndHisX: Not only are Spirit-Type Dream Eater recruitable and can be raised like pets, Sora and Riku also develope quite adorable relationships with their starter Dream Eaters, Meow Wow and Komory Bat, the first of which Sora ends up lovingly nicknaming "Eata". [[spoiler: Sora ends up keeping all his Dream Eaters for companionship in the end, when he decides to embark on a journey on his own.]]\n* {{Cephalothorax}}: Pricklemane.\n* CuteKitten: Necho Cat and Frootz Cat.\n* DarkIsNotEvil: They're expressions of darkness, just like the Heartless, but many are perfectly non-antagonistic.\n* DemBones: Skelterild and Fishboné.\n* DePower: Staggercep Dream Eaters have an attack that can prevent Sora and Riku from using commands.\n* DetachmentCombat: Skelterild and Fishboné.\n* EldritchAbomination\n** LovecraftLite: See DarkIsNotEvil above.\n* ElementalEmbodiment: Of Darkness, more or less-they aren't actually corrupted hearts like the Heartless, they seem to be creations of Darkness itself, devoid of any foreign influence.\n* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: Brawlimari.\n* EverythingsWorseWithBees: Queen Buzzerfly.\n* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin[=/=]YouAreTheTranslatedForeignWord: The Japanese names of the different species tend to be very cut-and-dried or bilingually redundant. The English version's names, when not [[{{Woolseyism}} adapting puns]], retain this redundancy, but tend to go for [[MyNaymeIs odd spellings for the Japanese portion of the name]], such as adapting "Kaeru Chef" as "Chef Kyroo".\n* {{Expy}}: Story-wise, mentioned in-universe; it's mentioned that they're the equivalent of Heartless in places where the Heartless can't spawn. Gameplay-wise, they avert it though; while Nobodies and Unversed had equalients[=/=]analogues to certain Heartless enemies, the Dream Eaters lack any of those.\n* EyesOfGold: Spirits apparently have golden eyes when in a neutral mood but can change to turquoise or green in other circumstances.\n* FeatheredFiend: Halbird, Eaglider.\n* FrogsAndToads: The Kyroo series. [[spoiler:The Lord Kyroo is a BonusBoss.]]\n* HairRaisingHare: Me Me Bunny and Majik Lapin.\n* TheHeartless: Much like their TropeNamer cousins. Inverted for Spirits, who are born of powerful ''positive'' emotions, and [[DarkIsNotEvil it shows]].\n* LightEmUp: Dream Eaters such as Pegaslick can use light based attacks such as Spark.\n* LightIsNotGood: Some Nightmares such as Pegaslick are able to use light-based attacks.\n* LuckyTranslation[=/=]{{Woolseyism}}: A little bit of column A, a little bit of column B. Wandanyan's name doesn't simply mean Wonder Meow, but it is also a pun on the onomatopoeia for a dog's bark, (wanwan). By using the English onomatopoeia "bow wow" for the pun, they were able to keep the spirit of Wandanyan's name as Meow Wow.\n* ManiacMonkeys: Hockomonkey.\n* MonsterClown: Jestabocky. Their Japanese name, "Obake Pierrot", is basically a direct translation of the trope's name.\n** NonIronicClown: Their Spirit versions.\n* ObviouslyEvil: It's not exactly difficult to tell a Nightmare from a Spirit.\n* OwlBeDamned: Peepsta Hoo.\n* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Ryu Dragon and Drak Quack.\n* OurGargoylesRock: Wargoyle.\n* OurGhostsAreDifferent: Jestabocky and Ghostaboky.\n* PaletteSwap: The Spirits and Nightmares are this to each other. They're both brightly colored, but Spirits tend to be pink, turquoise, and white while Nightmares tend to be purple, yellow, and black. There are also special Nightmare variants that use paler colors than regular Nightmares.\n* PantheraAwesome: Aura Lion and Keeba Lion.\n* {{Pegasus}}: Pegaslick.\n* PiranhaProblem: Fin Fatale and Fishboné.\n* {{Pun}}: A great many of their names amount to this, with varying degrees of [[IncrediblyLamePun lameness]]. For example, "Holey Moley".\n* RecurringBoss: The Spellican.\n* RedEyesTakeWarning: Nightmares.\n* RhinoRampage: Drill Sye.\n* SeahorseSteed: Sora can invoke this trope with Tatsu Steed and Tatsu Blaze.\n* SigilSpam: Interesting in that they have two different ones. Spirits have their own Sigil and so do the Nightmares. \n* StockDinosaurs: Three: the ''[[TyrannosaurusRex T. rex]]''-based Tyranto Rex and [[DemBones Skelterwild]], and the Triceratops-based Cera Terror.\n* TurnsRed: Several Dream Eaters will invoke this trope literally.\n* TheUsualAdversaries\n* {{Unicorn}}: Electricorn.\n[[/folder]]\n\n[[folder:Others]]\n!The Hostile Program\nA virus program created by the MCP and released by Sark to cause chaos in both Radiant Gardens and Space Paranoids to deal with Sora and Tron.\n----\n* AIIsACrapshoot\n* DidntNeedThoseAnyway: Its armor.\n* FoeTossingCharge\n* FrickinLaserBeams: Sweeps the area with these.\n* GetBackHereBoss: spends alot of the battle moving to different points in the area, firing lasers.\n* GameBreakingBug: On early PS3 consoles, the Hostile Program could get a glitch where it would be invincible, this has been fixed via updates.\n* HoistByHisOwnPetard: and odd variation, when the Program is hit, it drops cluster orbs, which don't defeat it, but can be used to cripple its movement and make it easier to hit. The Program does this through no fault of its own, so it isn't a TacticalSuicideBoss.\n* NoNameGiven\n* RaymanianLimbs\n* ShoutOut: probably unintentional, but the main part of its torso looks like an upside-down Death Star when the armor comes off.\n\n!The Experiment\nA mechanical creature intended to be a playmate for Lock, Shock, and Barrel.

To fill this void it steals Christmas presents, believing that the joy from a gift from ones heart will help this problem.\n----\n* BodyHorror: Its pieces can be taken off and put together again.\n* DecapitatedArmy: Each part can move on its own, but the creatures torso needs to be beaten for it all to be brought down.\n* EyeBeams: The head can juggle you with these.\n* [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Only Known As The Experiment]]\n* ShownTheirWork: The pieces the creature is made from are background props from the movie - e.g, its right arm is a machine from Oogie's Lair.\n* VacuumMouth: Its left arm, when detatched.\n* WellIntentionedExtremist: All its doing is trying to find a heart of its own, unintentionally taking away joy in the process.\n[[/folder]]\n\n[[folder:Sephiroth]]\n!Sephiroth\n[[quoteright:330:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kh2-sephiroth2.jpg]]\n[[caption-width-right:330:"I am TheChosenOne! [[DeadlyEuphemism I shall lead you to the Promised Land!]]"]]\n-> "The light doesn't suit you!"\n--> Voiced by: ToshiyukiMorikawa (Japanese), Lance Bass/George Newbern (English)\n\nThe famous ''FinalFantasyVII'' villain appears as a fiendishly hard optional boss in both ''Kingdom Hearts'' and ''Kingdom Hearts II''. In the latter, there's a bit of a subplot with him and Cloud -- in the former, Cloud mentions that he's "looking for someone", but the two only interact in a cut-scene added to the Final Mix.\n\nSee also [[Characters/FinalFantasyVII his Final Fantasy VII traits.]]\n-----\n* BonusBoss: Though his ThatOneBoss status is diminished in ''[[NoExportForYou Final Mix+]]'' by the introduction of Terra, [[spoiler:Roxas]], and the Data Organization XIII.\n* {{Bishounen}}: When he was voiced by Lace Bass his combat dialogue showed hints of it.\n* ColonyDrop: His most powerful attacks involve meteors, naturally, though they're on a ''Dissidia'' scale rather than the planet-crushing one from ''VII''.\n* EnemyWithout: It is heavily implied, if not outright stated, that he's the physical embodiment of Cloud's own darkness rather than the "real" Sephiroth.\n* EstrogenBrigadeBait: Come on, it's ''Sephiroth''.\n* HeyItsThatVoice: It's jarring hearing [[JusticeLeague Superman]] taunt you in battle.\n** It's less jarring when you take into account that in his previous appearance, it was Lance Bass taunting you in battle.\n* JapanesePronouns: "Watashi"\n* NeverSayDie: Pseudo-example, his declaration in the first game of "I will lead you to the Promised Land" becomes [[FridgeHorror more threatening]] when you remember that most interpreations of the "Promised Land" in ''VII'' were that it was TheLifestream.\n* OneHitKill: Or more like a One Hit Combo Kill, if you don't know what you're doing.\n** Can happen literally in the first game if you're underleveled/unprepared, seeing as Sephiroth uses ''no combo attacks'' sans a LimitBreak very similar to Cloud's Omnislash.\n* OneWingedAngel: Notably averted, despite being the TropeNamer. This seems to be a trend [[DissidiaFinalFantasy in recent years]] (with the exception of the hip wings). If you're being literal, he has one wing in the first game and three in KHII - on the other hand, the hip-wings do make an interesting callback to his actual OneWingedAngel form.\n* [[OnlyICanKillHim Only Cloud Can Kill Me]]\n* OnlyOneName\n* PerpetualMolt\n* PlayingWithFire: [[RuleOfCool Just because]], though it's possibly an application of EvilIsBurningHot.\n* TheOtherDarrin: Lance Bass -- yes, ''[[BoyBand that]]'' Lance Bass -- in the first game, George Newbern in the second.\n** And with it, came the realization that the [[CallingYourAttacks words]] for his HPToOne deathmove were "Descend Heartless Angel", ''not'' "[[{{Mondegreen}} Sin Harvest]]".\n* RapunzelHair\n* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver\n* SimultaneousBladeSpam: The move ''Flash'', where he dashes past Sora, and if you don't [[PressXToNotDie use the Reaction Command]], Sora eats about 7-9 slashes.\n* WhiteHairedPrettyBoy\n[[/folder]]\n\n[[folder:Unsorted]]\n!The Phantom\nA shrouded entity appearing in Neverland around the clock tower.\n----\n* AttackItsWeakPoint\n* BarrierChangeBoss\n* BlackCloak\n* CastingAShadow\n* TheFaceless: The only Heartless we've seen with no glowing yellow eyes. \n* FireIceLightning: Its energy orb must be attacked with physical blows or one of these three spell types.\n* ShoutOut: Appears similar to Lord Ombra from the Peter Pan novel ''Peter and the Shadow Thieves''.\n* TimeMaster: Uses the clock tower to inflict Doom on your party members one by one, and then eventually on Sora.\n* TheVoiceless\n\n!Kurt Zisa\nA large Heartless appearing in the Agrabah desert.\n----\n* AntiMagic: Can disable Sora's ability to cast magic.\n* CastingAShadow\n* ContestWinnerCameo: Named after a contest winner.\n* DualWielding\n* SinisterScimitar\n* SpinAttack\n* TheVoiceless\n\n-----\n\n!Mimic Master\nAn Unversed fought in the Mirage Arena.\n----\n* DoppelgangerAttack: Manifests clones of the party members from its pages.\n* PlayingWithFire\n* ThrowTheBookAtThem\n* YinYangBomb: Sends out beams of light and darkness\n\n----\n\n!Iron Imprisoner\nA Unversed fought in the Mirage Arena\n----\n* ChainedByFashion\n* DropTheHammer\n* PlayingWithFire\n* RedEyesTakeWarning\n* SealedEvilInACan\n* TookALevelInBadass: Each incarnation gradually frees itself from its bindings, becoming stronger and faster.\n\n----\n\n!Vanitas Remnant\nA shade of Vanitas spawned in the Keyblade Graveyard after his destruction.\n----\n* CastingAShadow\n* GlassCannon: Only one health bar, but insane power.\n* LastOfHisKind: In a sense, he can be considered the last of the Unversed in existence.\n* NoCureForEvil: Famous for averting it; he heals himself to full HP if the player heals themselves.\n** LoopholeAbuse: But only with Cure commands, items and attack commands that also heal get no reaction.\n* PlayingWithFire\n* SwordBeam\n* TeleportSpam\n\n----\n\n!The Red-Eyed Heartless\nA massive bestial pureblood Heartless fought in the Realm of Darkness in ''Birth By Sleep Final Mix''\n----\n* CastingAShadow\n* ChainedByFashion\n* DoppelgangerAttack\n* FanNickname: "Red Eye" or "Hunter of the Dark", the latter after its boss theme.\n* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: While all the Bonus Bosses appear with little backstory, this one's existence is canon.

A group of classic Disney Villains. In the first game, a group of them conspire under [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent's]] leadership. They are trying to use TheHeartless for their own evil means. After that, however, they're far more independent.

Maleficent's original group includes [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Hades,]] [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Jafar,]] [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ursula,]] [[Disney/PeterPan Captain Hook,]] and [[TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Oogie Boogie]]. The second game introduces [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Hector Barbossa]], [[Disney/{{Mulan}} Shan-Yu]], [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]], and [[{{Tron}} the MCP]], who aren't aligned with Maleficent, although she attempts to recruit/manipulate a couple.
----
* EvilVersusEvil: They got into a hard competition with Organization XIII during the second game. Organization XIII was for quite a time one step ahead, but after [[spoiler:Maleficent and Pete joined forces with Sora, King Mickey, and their friends]], the Disney villains eventually became the winning side.
* LargeHam: Noted in each applicable entry, but it should be noted that the group from the original game (Maleficent, Captain Hook, Jafar, Oogie Boogie, Hades, and Ursula, plus the unaffiliated Clayton) might as well be called ''The Large Hams Band''.
* LegionOfDoom
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Villains of a Sort".
* UnwittingPawn: They believe they use the Heartless without knowing it's actually the Heartless who use them (or, to be exact, that the Heartless are only complying with them because their REAL leader instructed them to.)

[[caption-width-right:250:The cutest EldritchAbomination you'll ever see.]]

-> "Anger... hatred... corruption, become power. Everything that exists, will be devoured!"
--> [[spoiler:—'''Data-Sora's Heartless''']]

The true antagonists of the story, Heartless are creatures of darkness born from the hearts within humans. They are driven only by instinct to seize hearts from other beings and destroy them, either by attacking them or manipulating them into darkness, creating more Heartless in the processs. As worlds also have hearts, this inevitably means they are drawn to worlds to destroy the world's heart and plunge it into darkness. Heartless come in two varieties -- Pureblood, formed naturally, and Emblem, formed by forced production.

According to legend, only the Keyblade wielder can stop the Heartless, able to lock the hearts of worlds from their reach, and when a Heartless is killed by a Keyblade its captive heart is freed. Thus the Heartless instinctively seek out Keyblade wielders to strike them down.

Created by Vexen and used as a tool by Vexen, Marluxia, and Larxene, and ultimately Axel. [[spoiler:Once he finds out that his memories are a fake created by Naminé, he becomes determined to defeat the real Riku and
become power. Everything real himself. You can guess how well that exists, will be devoured!"
--> [[spoiler:—'''Data-Sora's Heartless''']]

The true antagonists of the story, Heartless are creatures of darkness born from the hearts within humans. They are driven only by instinct to seize hearts from other beings and destroy them, either by attacking them or manipulating them into darkness, creating more Heartless in the processs. As worlds also have hearts, this inevitably means they are drawn to worlds to destroy the world's heart and plunge it into darkness. Heartless come in two varieties -- Pureblood, formed naturally, and Emblem, formed by forced production.

According to legend, only the Keyblade wielder can stop the Heartless, able to lock the hearts of worlds from their reach, and when a Heartless is killed by a Keyblade its captive heart is freed. Thus the Heartless instinctively seek out Keyblade wielders to strike them down.
