* Some of the magic users of the friends are actually floating an idea to curse Gladstone to trick him into joining their side, but nothing's come of it yet.



* However, with Judy's entrance into his life, there's signs that the future of the Big crime family might be secured toward the future. Especially with his daughter fru fru declaring her life debt to Judy. It's unknown how this might shift the balance of power in Zootopia in the future, but both sides are keeping tabs.

[[Disney/{{Zootopia}} Leodore Lionheart]]: When he was elected to Zootopia, the council offered their friendship to Lionheart in protecting his city from the Friends. However, Lionheart was more interested in the perks of the job rather than doing good. While he did promise to keep relations open, he wasn't interested in fighting demons. Then Bellweather started turning predators "savage". Distressed, rather than seek the help of the council, he instead took to capture each predator and then try to cure them on his own.

Unfortunately, illegal detainment of civilians landed him a one way ticket to prison once Judy and Nick discovered the truth. The council for their part is sorry that things came to this, especially since the Night howlers weren't technically his fault, but declined to cover bail for him. Lionheart pointed out the hypocricy in this given that they employ heroes like Jack Sparrow, but the council simply gave Leodore a sad look and said, "Sparrow has his own issues we are trying to iron out. You need some time alone to think about what it truly means to be mayor. You might not have caused the night howler plague, but you faciliated its use by keeping Bellwether overtaxed and not truly respecting her. Give it a few years, and then we'll talk."

HouseOfMouse: The one TrueNeutral zone in the entire war, this nightclub in Toontown serves as a place for both agents of the High Council and the [[VillainsOutShopping forces of]] [[GoKartingWithBowser the Friends]] to take a breather from their endless war, so long as there's no smoking, scheming or cannibalism. Chernabog doesn't like the idea at all, so he had Pete buy the deed and attempt to evict Mickey and company and close the place down, though Pete hasn't had much luck at this so far. The times Chernabog has supposedly shown up at the club were merely his identical twin brother Chernabog the Lesser, who serves as his brother's spy in the House (attempting to get info on the Council and its agents and perhaps their weaknesses) and [[ObfuscatingStupidity acts cowardly to lure people into a false sense of security]]. Zeus personally had high hopes for the House, as a way to convince some villains to lay down their arms or maybe even convert to their side. Unfortunately, the times he went to visit Mickey at the house, he found to his disappointment that the villains were mostly unaffected by their time, and left the club still just as wicked as before, if not a bit more civil towards their enemies. Jafar once led other clients of the Friends to initiate a takeover on Halloween Night, only to lose it. The House remains very much an Oasis location for both evil and good. The House is still open due to the contracted performance obligations needed to keep Pete from closing it, but while Mickey was in The Wasteland, Donald secretly took the keys for himself, understanding the seriousness of keeping the place open as a symbol of unity. The House of Mouse will still serve both sides, at least until the Friends decide the Mouse's influence gets out of hand.

[[ClassicDisneyShorts Witch Hazel]]: A minor client of the Friends who asked for black magic alongside Madam Mim, but realized the Friends were for pain and suffering rather than some good harmles scaring. So, Hazel quit the Friends while Mim stayed put, and now the witch plays a TrueNeutral party in this war, only helping those who desperately need her help, like Donald's Nephews for example.

[[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Hector Barbossa]]: A greedy and ruthless pirate, Barbossa was an ideal recruit for the friends. His keen interest in obtaining magical artifacts made him their top treasure hunter, and he quickly found himself rising through the ranks. But his lack of interest in [[ForTheEvulz evil for evil's sake]] and his interest in keeping the treasure for himself caused him to eventually pay off his debt and break with them (but not before he and his men were cursed for their efforts). After his resurrection, he now maintains a [[TrueNeutral neutral stance in the battle between good and evil]], helping whoever's working towards his interests at the moment. After a brief stint as a Privateer, he ended up defeating a high ranking agent of the Friends, Blackbeard and claimed his ship, crew and magic sword for himself, though Jack Sparrow and Gibbs have denied him the potential Armada of captured ships Blackbeard collected in bottles.

[[Disney/{{Zootopia}} Mr. Big]]: The most feared crime boss in all zootopia, Mr. Big is an old school mobster, believing in family, honor, respect and courtesy, while also using polar bear muscle against any who would get in his way. As such, he's too brutal to gain access to Robin Hood's band of followers, but too much of a NobleDemon to be enticed by the friends. He mostly carries on in his own way, causing disruptions in different parts of the city. The council though keeps an eye on him. After all, even if he is a criminal, if he's the worst organized crime in the city, they get a bargain out of it.
* However, with Judy's entrance into his life, there's signs that the future of the Big crime family might be secured toward the future. Especially with his daughter fru fru declaring her life debt to Judy. It's unknown how this might shift the balance of power in Zootopia in the future, but both sides are keeping tabs.

[[CarlBarks Gladstone]] [[DonaldDuck Gander]]: Despite what some think, Gladstone's improbable luck is not a "gift" from the friends, but apparently an inherited trait, passed on from his mother. In any event, Gladstone is an irritation to both sides of the war, as he represnts a valuable ally that will never be. The Friends have nothing to offer Gladstone that his luck can't provide-and besides, that whole "repaying" business sounds an awful lot like work. The Council has likewise tried to recruit Gladstone, but Gladstone's laziness, selfishness, and ego prevent him from taking an interest in anything that doesn't directly involve his own self interest. In addition, both Donald and Scrooge bitterly dislike Gladstone, and protest whenever mention is made of his joining the Council's allies. At current time, Glastone remains unaligned, doing whatever he pleases and assuming the world owes him a living. If his luck should ever run out, the Friends will be sure to turn that to their advantage-or the Council will be there to give him a well-earned kick in the tailfeathers.

WesternAnimation/GravityFalls: This sleepy little town in northern Oregon would be utterly overlooked were it not for the alarmingly high number of supernatural creatures occurring within and around it. There's no evidence of the Friends' influence yet, but the Council is rather nervous about the town, especially about local huckster Stan, who seems to be up to more than running a simple tourist trap.

trap. However, both sides waited to see what would happen once an extradimensional demon, Bill Cipher, was unleashed. However, the people of Gravity Falls, including Stan and his twin brother, inventor Stanford, were able to destroy Cipher and prevent his plot. This convinced the Friends to stay away, but the Council continues to investigate, even despite many of the heroes of the battle going their separate ways.

[[Disney/BigHero6 Allister Krei]]: The CEO of Krei Tech, and a savvy businessman, Krei has little interest in fighting specifically for good or for evil. Merely for profit. He does have a generous streak in trying to buy out other people's inventions, but as a pragmatic entrepreneur, he can take some risks that others would find questionable, such as the incident with the teleportation gateway. On the other hand, he knows his limits as an executive when to mothball a project. For the time being, he's too principled to accept any help from the friends, but too wrapped in his own things to be interested in fully joining the council.

* The Enchantress made her way to the prince's castle, alone and disguised as an old beggar woman. Being out in the middle of winter, she knew that this pitiful appearance would be helpful for testing the prince's compassion, and so knocked, offering a single rose as payment for a night's rest from the cold. The Prince sneered at the lowly flower and her appearance, and demanded she leave. Pressing further, The Enchantress asked that prince Adam not judge her by appearance, as beauty comes from within. But then he dismissed her again, and the enchantress revealed herself. While the prince tried to apologize for the mistake, it was too late. They were hoping that, by the time he died, years spent in isolation would have twisted him into an even better soldier for their armies. Plus, the servants, also trapped in a horrible fate by a supposedly good force, might lose their faith in the more benevolent forces of the Disney Universe, thus leaving their souls up for grabs. The way out was a natural consequence of the PowerOfLove. The Enchantress spelled it out for the Beast because she wanted the situation to seem hopeless and, as far as she knew, it was. [[EvilCannotComprehendGood Evil can't comprehend good]], after all, and the Friends really didn't believe anyone could love a beast. Ultimately, Belle's arrival botched the plan, leaving them with only one soul, Gastonís. She is a member of the Inner Circle, because after all, there is nothing more dangerous than a [[VillainWithGoodPublicity force of evil that everyone believes is good]].
* Also she is one of the Fair folk, members of the court of Oberon, faire king. More specifically, the enchantress can split herself up into 3 girls, the Weird Sisters, for combat and espionage purposes. They/She has/have worked with the Archmage and Demona many times before when trying to destroy Goliath and his friends.

But then he dismissed her again, and the enchantress revealed herself. While the prince tried to apologize for the mistake, it was too late. They were hoping that, For she had seen that there was no pity, no compassion, no love in this ill tempered prince who would leave an old woman to die in the cold rather than give shelter for 1 night. And so, she cast her most powerful spell ever, transforming Adam into a beast, and cursing the whole castle with darkness and polymorph.
** The reason she cursed the servants as well was because they bore some responsibility in making the prince this way. After all, a prince can't spoil himself without enablers.

by the time he Adam died, years spent in isolation would have twisted him into an even better a soldier for their armies.

The way out was a natural consequence of the PowerOfLove. Unfortunately for them, although The Enchantress spelled it out for the Beast because was punitive, she also wanted the situation prince to seem hopeless and, as grow from this. So, she gave him 2 gifts before departing. First, a magic mirror that would show him anything he wished, allowing him to see far as beyond his own vision, hoping that he'd take the hint to see beyond just his reflection. And second, she knew, it was. [[EvilCannotComprehendGood Evil can't comprehend good]], after all, chose to give the curse a time limit: instead of making the curse permanent, she gave him until his 21st year to learn to love, and the Friends really didn't believe anyone could earn love in return by the time the last petal fell. While the odds were slim, The Enchantress sincerely hoped he'd take a beast. Ultimately, hint by the time the end rolled around. And ultimately, Belle's arrival botched the plan, friends's plans, leaving them with only one soul, Gastonís.

** When Zeus found out about this though, he declared, "[[ThisIsUnforgivable You've gone too far!]]" He exiled her from Olympus
for combat and espionage purposes. They/She has/have worked her callousness, banishing her from ever working with the Archmage and Demona many times before others again. But, when trying the friends came to destroy Goliath take her on as a member, she rebuked them, saying "Why in the world would I join the very group I've been fighting for hundreds of years!?" She currently wanders the land, dealing out punishment to the unworthy, always staying one step ahead of both friends and his friends.
the council, as she finds the former unhelpful, and the latter too soft.

[[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast The Enchantress]]: Okay, this one was in contention for years, as the ambiguity of her character was a point of anger for many, but now is the time to set the record straight. Once upon a time, the Friends saw potential making the Prince to be a client. Unfortunately for them, he was satisfied with being spoiled by his servants. So they decided to curse the castle through an agent. Unfortunately, they couldn't figure out who to do the deed, so instead they decided to trick another to do it instead: the Enchantress.
* Her appearance and resemblance to other Disney faeries and wish-granters is no coincidence. Linked to the Blue Faerie, the Fairy Godmother, and others, she was once a member of Zeus's group of heroes. But unlike many of the other fairies, she believed more in punishment than encouragement. This lead to many reprimands from Zeus, but he kept her on as she never did anything too serious. The Friends saw an opportunity, and with Forte's help, tipped her off about "testing" a prince.
