Disney Epic Mickey
features a cast of characters, mostly based on Disney
Our hero, ladies and gentlemen.
Voiced by: Bret Iwan
The main character
is none other than Disney's
, based on his early appearances as a mischevious mouse. His attempts to use Yen Sid's magical paintbrush accidentally led to him creating the game's main antagonist, the Shadow Blot
, and causing the Thinner Disaster
which ruined the Wasteland.
Originally created by Walt Disney
before Mickey Mouse
was the ruler of the Wasteland, but since the arrival of the Blot, he is now fighting against it as leader of La Résistance
From the 1933 short where he kidnapped Mickey's
, The Mad Doctor stands alongside the Shadow Blot
as the main antagonist in the game. He seems prepared to stand alone as the Big Bad in the sequel.
- Big Bad / Big Bad Duumvirate: Alongside the Shadow Blot.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: He suffers from this really badly. First he backstabbed Oswald when he started to lose the Blot War, and then he plans to backstab the Blot the moment he gets Mickey's heart. And he's at it again in the sequel. Guy just doesn't quit.
- Civilian Villain: In Epic Mickey 2, he got back in Oswald's favor by claiming that he has reformed and now wants to save Wasteland from some appearent unknown threat. It shouldn't be too difficult to figuring it out if he's truely sincere or not; Ortensia and Mickey distrust him from the beginning.
- Evil Laugh: It is even lampshaded in a cutscene when Gus asks Oswald exactly which Evil Laugh it was.
- Heel-Face Turn: Turns good for real if you beat him with paint in Epic Mickey 2.
- Insistent Terminology: During his boss fight, he becomes enraged that Gus continues calling him "Doc" instead of "The Mad Doctor".
- Large Ham: In the sequel, befitting a character who communicates almost entirely in over-the top Villain Songs, even for 30-second transmitted messages. It even applies when he's not singing.
- Mad Scientist: He's responsible for creating the Beetleworx, among other things. And he flies around in a hovering snowglobe.
- Manipulative Bastard
- Morally Ambiguous Doctorate
- No Name Given: While he was named "Dr. XXX" in his original short, here he is simply "The Mad Doctor".
- Older than They Look
- Robotic Reveal: When defeated at Lonesome Manor, his paint partially peels away to reveal that he himself is a Beetleworx, knowing that animatronics would be the only thing that would survive the Shadow Blot's inevitable draining of Wasteland.
- Villain Song: Speaks almost entirely in song in the sequel until the final boss battle.
"(starting to sing) One more step and your friends are... (stops singing) history".
Originally the "Phantom Blot" from the Mickey Mouse Comic Universe
, the Shadow Blot
is the game's main antagonist, a creation of Paint and Thinner that threatens the Cartoon Wasteland

first companion, Gus is one of the Gremlins fighting against the Shadow Blot
, and providing commentary and exposition for Mickey
Animatronic Goofy, Animatronic Daisy, and Animatronic Donald DuckMickey's
classic comrades appear as animatronic recreations made by the Mad Doctor so Oswald could have his own close friends. They're located in various hubs around Wasteland, who have been attacked and disassembled by the Mad Doctor's Beetleworx army.
The chief authority in Mean Street, Pete has several counterparts in other areas of Wasteland, including Small Pete near Gremlin Village, Petetronic
in Tomorrowland, and Pete Pan
in Pirates of the Wasteland; all of them know each other. He may become nicer (or not) depending on the player's actions.

Oswald's love interest.
The smiling, golden-faced Clock Tower from the "It's A Small World" ride serves as the first boss. He'll try to flatten Mickey with his huge armored fists and arms.
