The heroes are led by the High Council. These are the ultimate Big Goods. They're all immortals who are usually vastly powerful, and are deeply involved in combating the Friends. They run the organization, and their members include Zeus, King Triton, Yen Sid, Rafiki, Grandmother Willow, Goliath, Genie, Jack Skellington, and the Wish-granting Fairies. They freely travel between worlds where they're needed, and give missions to the Lieutenants, agents, and trainees in the ranks.

[[TheLifeAndTimesOfScroogeMcDuck Scrooge]] [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales McDuck]]: Scrooge McDuck was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and when he was cheated out of a fair payment on his first job, he swore to make it big by being smarter then the smarties, sharper than the sharpies and tougher than the toughies. He traveled the world, serving as an example for all the ducks who work for him of diligence, honesty, and stubborn virtue. (Most of the time)

[[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Santa]] [[TheSantaClause Claus]]: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Exactly what you'd expect]], he's an ancient force of good that has been helping the High Council for hundreds of years. An immortal wish-granter whose powers work in a similar way to the Blue Fairy and Fairy Godmother, he built a massive operation to grant wishes to the whole world once a year, and used the same technology to keep tabs on the Friends (they've all got a prominent position on the naughty list, natch). He was offered a spot on the High Council, but declined, wanting to keep his focus on Christmas Town, though he did once accept a brief assignment to visit [[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia Narnia]] and give the Pevensie sisters and their older brother items to help them in their war against the White Witch. Eventually, he decided to retire and pass on his powers (he didn't die, as it appeared in TheSantaClause, but rather simply disappeared leaving his suit behind), and Scott Calvin (who the original Santa had been keeping an eye on for a while) took on the mantle. It wasn't the smoothest transition, but he grew into the role and has recently been introduced to the High Council and picked up where his predecessor left off. The original Santa is enjoying retirement in Christmas Town with the Missus, though he still has command over PrepAndLanding to help his successor in his job as well as spy on the Friends.

[[WesternAnimation/StarVSTheForcesOfEvil Star Butterfly]]: Born of a political marriage between the house Butterfly and the house Johansen, Star grew up being trained to be a warrior by the palace guards, while also developing a free spirit due to her strict parental upbringing. Despite her "reckless and irresponsible" behavior in her youth, the council personally thought she would make a fine princess, due to her fearless demeanor in fighting monsters and taming unicorns in her spare time. Inheriting the royal magic wand on her 14th birthday, her unfortunate lack of control lead her mom and dad (moon and river respectively) to send her to learn ordinary virtues on earth. While Star is only 14, thanks to her years of training and upbeat attitude, she's under consideration for direct training from Yen Sid in the future. Unfortunately for the council though, any attempt to breach contact has failed. This is because Star shows little interest in the formal trappings of leadership and learning, and is too interested in all her friends on earth to take on frontline duty. (Several council commanders have also sworn off working with her as she has been known to accidentally catch buildings on fire with flaming rainbows.)
* However, in recent times, Star has gone dark, abandoning contact due to wanting to battle Toffee on her mother's terms. However, the council [[YouAreNotAlone refuses to let star face this evil alone]], and is making plans to assist her when the battle returns.

* However, in recent times, Star has gone dark, abandoning contact due to wanting to battle Toffee on gained great interest from the council. Why? Because despite not necessarily thinking through the process of saving her mother's terms. However, kingdom, she was responsible for PURIFYING THE ROOT OF MAGIC IN HER DIMENSION ON HER OWN!! And gaining a SuperMode easily equal to many other master mages. It was magnificent to say the council [[YouAreNotAlone refuses least. As such, Yen Sid sent a personal invitation to let star face this evil alone]], and is making plans to assist Star, inviting her when to better train herself to tap into that kind of power again in the battle returns.

[[Disney/TheAristocats O'Malley and Duchess]]: Because of the CatsAreMean situation, cats are discriminated against in the Animal Kingdom. The High Council decided that those who chose to forsake the Friends needed a safe haven from both the distrusting public and there own kind. It had always been a plan to turn Madame Bonfamille's estate into a haven for them. Had Edgar not interfered, he would have been offered a life of luxury in exchange for this. Still, he gave into evil impulses, but everything worked out. Another human runs the shelter now.

** One such occasion was when Mickey was incarnated into [[Disney/ThePrinceAndThePauper 2 bodies]] and helped save england from ruin.



[[Disney/TheSwordInTheStone King Arthur]]: The rightful king of all England, "Wart" wasn't very confident or wise before Merlin took him on as his student, but through his many lessons, he was gradually prepared for his role of becoming King by drawing the Sword in the Stone. It was certainly a frightening prospect at first, but thanks to Merlin's wise guidance in his earliest years, Arthur grew into the role and ruled with Justice and Compassion from then on.



Disney/RobinHood: Oh come on, are you suprised? Someone as talented and cunning as Robin Hood wouldn't avoid the High Council's attention forever...especially now that he's itching for excitement since he beat John. He's much more mellow after his marriage, but he's still THE best archer in their ranks, and an excellent spy.

* Zeus also asked Rapunzel if she'd like her magic hair back as Helios could have easily given her another drop of sunlight to restore her powers. Rapunzel politely declined though on the grounds that the hair was more trouble than its potential benefits.

[[Disney/{{Frozen}} Olaf]]: Being a living embodiment of love and kindness, Olaf spreads happiness and cheer wherever he goes and lets very little get to him. These traits make him a key part of warding off the Friends' influence throughout Arendelle. And thanks to his personal flurry, he has little fear of melting.

Added DiffLines:

[[Franchise/{{Cars}} Dinoco Racing]]: Before Lightning [=McQueen=], Dinoco was the council's favorite racing team. Run by the well meaning Tex, and lead by the golden boy himself "The King" Strip Weathers. The King was a bold and prosperous racer who inspired generations of racers with his skill on the track, but ultimately what set him apart was his humility. He was a good man in marriage, a fair racer, a well meaning mentor with others, and a grounded team player, and that made his success all the better for the council in having RightMakesMight. Then his retirement came up, and his big wreck came, but by then Lightning had come to understand respect and honor, and thus helped him finish 2nd in his last race. For his nobility and kindness, Tex offered Lightning a chance to be their face, and though the offer was declined, Dinoco remained a fuel of noble champions well after the king.
