For the characters from 1999 version, see ''Characters/{{Fantasia 2000}}''.
!!Hop Low
* MushroomMan: The smallest of a set of dancing mushrooms.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: All of them are adorable.
* TheRuntAtTheEnd: Is smaller than the rest of the mushrooms, and always a step behind.

!!The Sorcerer's Apprentice
->'''"Played" by:''' WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse\\
'''Voiced by:''' Creator/WaltDisney (''Fantasia''), Wayne Allwine (''Fantasia 2000'')

* TheApprentice: Duh.
* AuthorAvatar: To Walt Disney, Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo, Walt Disney Classics, and Walt Disney Imagineering.
* BadassAdorable: Possibly one of Mickey's defining moments of badassery in his entire career.
* GoneHorriblyRight: The animated broomsticks do exactly what he tells them to do... except ''stop.''
* HandHidingSleeves: His oversized sleeves serve to emphasize his inexperience.
* MagicHat: He borrows his master's. Also a HatOfPower and RobeAndWizardHat.
* MundaneUtility: Using magic to fetch water from a well.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: It's Mickey, after all.

!!Yen Sid
->'''Voiced by:''' MichaelRye (''Disney on Parade'' [1971]) Creator/CoreyBurton (all appearances starting with ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'')

* MagicHat: One that apparently contains some of his power, given all that Mickey is able to do while wearing it.
* {{Mentors}}: To Mickey.
* NoNameGiven: He goes unnamed in the actual film (technically, so does his apprentice, though subsequent Disney canon more or less states it actually ''is'' Mickey Mouse and not a character he is playing).
* SternTeacher: He comes across as one, albeit not to the point of being unreasonable.
* SdrawkcabName: His name is "Creator/{{Disney}}" spelled backwards and with a space added.
* SuddenlyVoiced: Yen Sid never said a word until ''Disney on Parade'' in 1971. And he never spoke again until ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' in 2006. Since then he's also spoken in ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'' and at Ride/DisneyThemeParks.
* WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises: He is permanently drawn like this, albeit not as a sign of fear or anxiety. Perhaps a mild version of HellishPupils, depending on how positively you think he comes across.
* WizardClassic: Complete with [[WizardBeard long gray beard]] and a RobeAndWizardHat.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: See ArtisticLicensePaleontology below
* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: This 'tyrannosaur' [[ScienceMarchesOn doesn't look very plausible these days.]] She has several anatomical inaccuracies - an upright posture, long arms with three fingers (Disney insisted on three claws), etc.. And to judge by the fossil record, a ''Tyrannosaurus rex'' (extant from roughly 68 to 65 million years ago) could only battle a ''Stegosaurus'' (extant from roughly 155 to 150 million years ago) if it had access to a time machine.
** Amusingly enough, some of these inaccuracies would actually make him a reasonably accurate (for the time the film was made) ''Allosaurus''.
* AntiVillain: The ''Tyrannosaurus'' is not truly evil, it just wants to feed and survive, but its terrifying appearance and behavior make it an antagonist nonetheless.
* TheDreaded: All the dinosaurs run from it when they are in its presence.
* MadeOfIron: Takes several hits by a ''Stegosaurus'''s thagomizer but always gets back up, although if this happened in real life such hits would have been enough to kill it.
* MightyRoar: He lashes out one of these once he's killed the ''Stegosaurus''. It's not heard though as we only see his mouth's movement.
* NonMaliciousMonster: It's predatory, but not malevolent.
* NotSoInvincibleAfterAll: Initially portrayed as an unstoppable force of nature, but eventually succumbs to dehydration.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Has menacing red eyes.
* TheWorfEffect: Once the drought hits, it becomes forced to walk alongside its prey in a search for water and eventually succumbs to the heat.

!!Peter Pegasus
* {{Pegasus}}: The smallest of a family of winged horses; his father is ''the'' Pegasus.
* TheRuntAtTheEnd: He's the last of his clutch(?) to learn to fly.

* BoisterousBruiser: He's usually seen drinking wine and dancing around.
* BigFun: A given, seeing as he's the Greek god of wine.
* HugeRiderTinyMount: Easily outweighs his mount Jackus.

* HugeRiderTinyMount: The tiny mount to Bacchus.
* MixAndMatchCritter: He's a donkey with a unicorn's horn.

!!Mademoiselle Upanova
* BigEater: As befitting her species.
* TheKlutz: Easily the least graceful of the dancers in "The Dance of the Hours"; and considering what the other dancers are, that's saying something.
* PunnyName: A play on the phrase "up and over", and on the name of the dancer who served as reference, Irina Baronova.

!! Hyacinth Hippo
->'''Voiced by:''' Mary T. Radford ''(Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit)''

* {{Acrofatic}}: Can leap hundreds of feet in the air!
* BigBeautifulWoman: Ben Ali certainly seems to think so.
%%* HeavyHippo
* SuddenlyVoiced: Has one line on her cameo in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''. ("Oh, excuse me.")
* TutuFancy: Although it fits her a bit too tight.

!! Ben Ali Gator
%%* HandsomeLech
* InformedSpecies: More closely resembles a crocodile than an alligator, except that he has an overbite just like a real alligator.
* InterspeciesRomance: With Hyacinth Hippo.
* NeverSmileAtACrocodile

->Voiced by: Creator/CoreyBurton (All appearances outside of ''Fantasia'' and ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'')

* ArchEnemy: To Sorcerer Mickey, his friends and his mentor, Yen Sid.
* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: Light and sacred bells don't defeat him completely.
* BadBoss: He torments his underlings for his own amusement.
* BigBad: Of the film.
** Given how he appears in a movie where Mickey Mouse is one of the protagonists, his reign as Big Bad can extend into various crossovers in the parks, even appearing as the penultimate boss in the original Kingdom Hearts.
* DarkIsEvil: So much.
* EldritchAbomination: A LivingShadow [[SatanicArchetype in the form of Satan]] still partly encased in Bald Mountain. A RealityWarper whose feats include necromancy, pyromancy and forced transformations. Church bells, fortunately, pain and confine him.
* EverybodyHatesHades: Chernabog was a black god, but wasn't ''evil'' as a pre-Christian Slavic deity. Subverted as Walt said he was meant to be Satan anyway, and in the roadshow version, Deems Taylor identifies him as such.
* EvilIsBigger: He's easily the tallest and the most wicked creature of the sequence. He could even be the biggest creature of the whole film.
* EvilIsBurningHot: Chernabog covers himself in fire near the end of ''Music/NightOnBaldMountain''.
* EvilOverlord: To the undead and demonic followers of the night, destroying and torturing them ForTheEvulz.
* EvilSorcerer: He can summon demons, ghosts, witches and other sorts of monsters and can manipulate fire at his own will.
* ForTheEvulz: Chernobog passes the time idly amusing himself. With terrible deeds.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: With no pupils
* GreaterScopeVillain: Arguably this to the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon as a whole, being {{Satan}}.
* HornedHumanoid: A clue that he is {{Satan}}.
* HumanoidAbomination: A human torso, human arms... less human in the head and, well, the wings.
* LargeHam: Chernabog is a rare non-speaking example. He's rarely impassive--his face is usually contorted either in rage or in diabolical glee.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Slavic for "black god" (read: devil).
* OurGargoylesRock: He awakens from stone and his form is essentially that of the classic gargoyle. But much, much bigger.
* RealityWarper: Well, he ''is'' an all powerful demon.
* {{Satan}}: Despite being officially known as Chernabog, it's pretty clear that he's actually supposed to be Satan himself, as stated by Deems Taylor and Walt Disney.
* SatanicArchetype: Very obvious, in fact they had to change the name in order to get copyrighted, despite the narrator describing it as such.
* SealedEvilInACan: A timed can, but a can nonetheless.
* SlasherSmile: When he really liked his final transformation of his transformed minions.
* TheSociopath: He is basically the devil in a kid's movie.
* VillainByDefault:
** Did Chernabog actually do anything inherently ''wrong''? The answer--''no'', he did not, because he left no lasting damage and disappeared without having harmed anyone--apart from some demons perhaps. He summons a legion of demons, ghosts and otherworldly monsters so he can have a ''rave''.
** It is implied by Walt and Deems that he has performed many crimes against God, so it is possible that he's ''imprisoned'' in the mountain for terrible crimes. And while demons and ghosts can't be expected to get much sympathy, it's possible that they are brought to him and forced to amuse him against their will.
* VillainProtagonist: Well, he's a villain, but also the central character in "Night on Bald Mountain".
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Although the rest is covered by the mountain peak.
* WeakenedByTheLight: When the sun rises, he winces and shields his own eyes.
* WingedHumanoid: The terrible batlike wings, when folded, give the illusion of [[ParanoiaFuel an ordinary mountain top.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: He dumps his first set of minions into the lava, which make the fires glow in wilder colors and rage more violently.
