Characters: Kingdom Hearts Disney Villains
This is a listing of the villains created by Disney that appear in the Kingdom Hearts series. Visit the index here for other characters who appear in the series.
    open/close all folders 

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

Maleficent's original group includes Hades, Jafar, Ursula, Captain Hook, and Oogie Boogie. The second game introduces Captain Hector Barbossa, Shan-Yu, Scar, and the MCP, who aren't aligned with Maleficent, although she attempts to recruit/manipulate a couple.
  • Evil Versus Evil: 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 Maleficent and Pete joined forces with Sora, King Mickey, and their friends, the Disney villains eventually became the winning side.
  • Large Ham: 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.
  • Legion of Doom
  • Leitmotif: "Villains of a Sort". In battle, it depends on the boss, but it's often "The Encounter".
  • Unwitting Pawn: 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.)

Major Villains

    Maleficent 

Maleficent

"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 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 Hijacked By Xehanort before the climax. Unfortunately for Sora and co., you can't keep a good villain down for long...

    Pete 

Pete

"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: Tōru Ōhira (Japanese), Jim Cummings (English)

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.
  • 0% Approval Rating: Pete's desire to win the Million Dreams Award only caused everyone in town to hate him. While he did get a few votes, his ego only caused them to regret the votes, which is part of the reason behind his banishment and Face-Heel Turn.
  • Anti-Hero: Like Maleficent, they only aided Sora and his friends during the game so that they could gain once the Organization XIII was toppled.
  • Beard of Evil: In the Country of Musketeers.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: 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 too much of a coward to be this.
  • Braggart Boss
  • Butt Monkey
  • Cats Are Mean
  • Character Development: 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.
  • Chronic Villainy: 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 Reformed Criminal. However, losing to Terra in a race leads to him once again undergoing a Face-Heel Turn. Depending on how one interprets Maleficent helping him out of the resulting Pocket Dimension, he may count as a less tragic version of Driven to Villainy as well.
  • Combat Tropes
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: As incompetent as Pete is usually portrayed, he's shown himself to be talented in many areas. He has hand-to-hand fighting abilities, can use explosives and magic, can control Heartless, and is proficient with computers. He's also been a Rumble Racer, a steamboat Captain, and of course The Dragon to Maleficent.
  • Dirty Coward: Made clear in the Battle of Hollow Bastion, where he left Maleficent for herself with the Nobodies. Subverted in the end when he was able to conquer his fears in order to help Sora and Mickey get some time to defeat Xemnas by holding back the Heartless.
    • Know When to Fold 'Em: 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.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Was temporarily banished to a Pocket Dimension 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.
  • The Dragon: To Maleficent.
  • Enemy Mine: 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 Sora and the King against Xemnas and the Heartless.
  • Evil Chancellor: He was this to Minnie in the past as Captain of the Royal Guard in "Country of the Musketeers".
  • Fat Bastard
  • Fat Cat
  • Fat Idiot
  • Go Karting with Bowser: 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 Face-Heel Turn (again).
  • Heel-Face Revolving Door: Pete starts out as a steam boat captain before pulling a Face-Heel Turn as captain of the Musketeers and tries to take a then-princess Minnie's throne. He reforms, but is still a trouble maker. Losing the Million Dreams Award causes him to go back to villainy, and is still an antagonist as of KH3D.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: "Past-Pete" before his alliance with Maleficent and the Heartless.
  • Large Ham: Particularly as CAPTAIN JUSTICE!!!
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Just like in the film, he has a line to this effect in "Country of the Musketeers" in 3D.
    Captain Pete: How dare you thwart me just in the nick of time!
  • Mascot Mook: The credits state at the end that Pete is one.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Not particularly good at it, but he it's how he sows Heartless throughout the World.
  • Nostalgia Filter: In-Universe. He seems to long for the good old days of steamboat captaincy, but, given the Time Travel to Timeless River and what happens to him, he's probably just thinking it's better than his later situations.
  • Only One Name
  • Retcon: In Kingdom Hearts II, it was stated by Goofy 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.
    • Of course, Goofy wasn't present at the time to witness the banishment, so he and Donald would not know the whole story. And since they were waiting for King Mickey at the Mysterious Tower at the time, they've got an excuse towards thinking that Mickey banished Pete.
      • It should be noted, however, that the discrepancy between whether Mickey or Minnie did the banishing isn't there in the original Japanese script. There, Goofy used a gender-neutral pronoun when talking about which "Majesty" was behind Pete's imprisonment.
    • Played straight in the manga, as Queen Minnie mentions that King Mickey banished Pete.
  • Right-Hand Cat: Technically he's this to Maleficent, being a cat.
  • Sentai: In Birth by Sleep.
  • Sore Loser: Pete putting on a costume and pretending to be a hero in the hopes of winning the Million Dreams Award. No one is fooled, and when Pete loses to Ventus, Aqua and Terra, he gets banished due to his 0% Approval Rating and for trying to attack Queen Minnie.
  • Videogame Cruelty Potential: 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 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).
  • You Shall Not Pass: In Kingdom Hearts II, during the endgame. He survives.


Dwarf Woodlands

    Evil Queen 

Evil Queen

"That is no concern of yours. Now, heed my words. My radiance is all the light this kingdom needs."
"What I demand is her life. I have had more than enough of her light."
Voiced by: Kyoko Satomi (Japanese), Susan Blakeslee (English)
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.

    Magic Mirror 

The Magic Mirror

"Between both light and dark he dwells. Where war was waged upon the fells."
"The queen is gone, and my work is done. Adieu, o victorious one."
Voiced by: Tamio Oki (Japanese), Corey Burton (English)
A spirit who appears within the magic mirror at the queen's behest and answers all questions with the truth.


Olympus Coliseum

    Hades 

Hades

"He's strong. He's kind. He's always there for you and he's handsome to boot. He's perfect. Perfect. Perfectly infuriating! He makes me crazy!"
"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.

    Ice Titan 

Ice Titan

One of the Titans from Hercules, fought in the Coliseum.
  • An Ice Person: Duh.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: During the battle. Inverted during the victory cutscene, though.
  • Beam Spam: It fires icicle shards as its main attack, and fires a lot of them.
  • Breath Weapon: Which can turn you into a Human Popsicle.
  • Bonus Boss
  • Dem Bones
  • 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).
  • Level Grinding: 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.
  • Only Known By Its Title: Its name, Hydros, is never mentioned in any of the games.
  • Sleep Mode Size: After Sora beats it, it loses so much mass it has to run away before he steps on it.
  • Tennis Boss: 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.
  • The Voiceless

    Rock Titan 

Rock Titan

Another Titan from Hercules featured in the Olympus Coliseum.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever
  • The Bus Came Back: It was shown in a trailer, fighting Sora, Donald, and Goofy on a magical train, showcasing scenes from Kingdom Hearts 3 after only appearing once as an optional boss in the first game.
  • The Cameo: Appears in the opening cutscene for his world in Kingdom Hearts II... only to be Team Rocketed away by Hercules.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Surprisingly averted, though made of rock, most of its attacks involve full-on physical attacks
  • Man Bites Man: When knocked down on its back, its heads will occasionally perform a bite attack.
  • Mighty Glacier: Incredibly so, but it makes sense considering it is a giant made out of stone.
  • Multiple Head Case: Has two heads that oddly seem to share the same mindless personality.
  • No Body Left Behind: Crumbles apart after its defeat.
  • Shockwave Stomp: Its main method of attack.


Deep Space

    Jumba Jookiba 

Dr. Jumba Jookiba

"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: Shozo Iizuka (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.

    Experiment 221 

Experiment 221/Sparky

Voiced by: Wataru Takagi (Japanese), Frank Welker (English)
He is one of Dr. Jumba's genetic experiments. His "primary function" is to short out electrical devices.

    Gantu 

Gantu

"I don't know how you did it, but you won't get away again."
"Any last words before I blast you into a million pieces?"
Voiced by: Unshō Ishizuka (Japanese), Kevin Michael Richardson (English)
A very large captain in the Galactic Federation's army. He takes his responsibilities seriously, but his hotheaded attitude results in frequent failures.
  • Fantastic Racism: Toward Stitch. He refuses to believe Stitch is capable of anything but havoc, and eventually decides to go against his orders and execute the little guy - and Aqua when she defends him.
  • Hero Antagonist: Though he does become progressively less reasonable and heroic over the course of the Deep Space story.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs
  • I Am Big Boned: When he comes to get the prisoners, Stitch makes a remark in his gibberish language, prompting Gantu to yell "I'M JUST BIG-BONED!".
  • Kick the Dog: Breaking Stitch's Wayfinder.
  • Large and in Charge: Until he is demoted by the Grand Councilwoman, he appears to be the head of security on the Deep Space ship.
  • Ray Gun
  • Sapient Cetaceans


Agrabah

    Jafar 

Jafar

"Indeed I will, Princess. All of Agrabah will belong to me, while you...You, my queen, shall weep at my side for all eternity!"
"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.

    Iago 

Iago

Voiced by: Akira Kamiya/Toru Okawa (Japanese), Gilbert Gottfried (English)
Jafar's boisterous and cunning parrot. He's Jafar's eyes and ears for everything going on in Agrabah
  • The Atoner: In the second game.
  • Butt Monkey
  • Celebrity Voice Actor: Gilbert Gottfried, as usual. Notable, in that he's one of the few well-known actors from the Disney movies to reprise his character.note 
    • Not really true. Disney managed to get back several original actors from the films – the ones who were still alive, at any rate. Gottfried's presence in particular isn't a shock since he does a lot of voice work. The actors they couldn't get back are mainly A-listers. In fact, the Final Fantasy characters have more vocal substitutions.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Dirty Coward: Regardless of his side of the conflict.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Though he still proves to be a Dirty Coward in the sequel despite being the heroes' friends, much like in his home continuity.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Luckily, he survived.
    "You'd be surprised what you can live through."
  • The Imp
  • Misplaced Wildlife: He's a South American parrot in Saudi Arabia.
  • Only One Name
  • The Other Darrin: In Japanese. For Kingdom Hearts, he is voiced by Akira Kamiya, but for Kingdom Hearts II, he is voiced by Toru Okawa.
  • Polly Wants a Microphone
  • Stationary Wings
  • Toothy Bird
  • Wild Card


Space Paranoids and The Grid

    Master Control Program 

Master Control Program

"We don't need users."
Voiced by: Ikuya Sawaki (Japanese), Corey Burton (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

    Sark 

Sark

"Tenacious little bugs! Your time is up! Prepare for de-resolution!"
Voiced by: Tetsuo Kanao (Japanese), Corey Burton (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.

    CLU 

CLU

"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), Fred Tatasciore (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.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: 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.
  • Anti-Mutiny: See above.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Kevin Flynn.
  • Artificial Human
  • Badass Boast: "I created the perfect system! And now, you see the applications at my disposal!"
  • Beard of Evil: Which, ironically, is also Kevin Flynn's former Badass Beard from when he was at the age when he created CLU.
  • The Corrupter: Corrupted The Grid and also turned TRON into Rinzler. Not to mention the entire process of rectification.
  • Creative Sterility: Why he has to 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.
    • In fact, its evident that the Commantis was being controlled by CLU during its boss fight.
  • Deadly Disc: Wields one, like everyone else in The Grid.
  • Disney Villain Death: 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.
  • Drunk on the Dark Side: As shown by his obsession with the Commantis Dream Eater.
  • Enemy Without: To Kevin Flynn.
  • Evil Overlord: He rules the entire Grid with an iron fist.
  • Evil Twin: Of Kevin Flynn, especially when he was younger.
  • Fantastic Racism: Hates the ISOs for being imperfect and unpredictable.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Though it drops completely when he hits his Villainous Breakdown.
  • Fun with Acronyms: 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.
  • Gone Horribly Right: 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 it did work.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Tried to derezz Sora out of jealousy after Rinzler is freed.
  • Hate Sink: Clu is, alongside Lady Tremaine and her daughters (whom he shares a lot of similarities with), one of the most despised Disney villains in the series, especially in Sora's Story.
  • If I Can't Have You: A non-romantic example: Sora freeing Rinzler from Clu's control results in the evil program trying to kill them both out of jealousy towards the former, and succeeds with Rinzler.
  • Jerkass: Arguably worse than in the film, especially in Sora's side.
  • Karma Houdini: He manages to avoid defeat in Sora's story, making the Bittersweet Ending 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.
  • Kick the Dog: Clu does this by forcing Sora to fight Tron/Rinzler, knowing fully well that Sora was once friends with him. And when Tron gets restored, Clu kills him.
  • Knight Templar: He will do anything to create the "perfect system".
  • Large Ham
  • Latex Space Suit
  • Little "No": After Kevin tricks him into taking the wrong disc.
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • Moral Sociopathy
  • A Nazi by Any Other Name: Complete with his Black Guards and Sentries Putting on the Reich.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Along with Barbossa and Sark, he is one of the only three live-action villains to be featured in the series.
  • Not Quite Dead: Same situation as Frollo, he was not defeated in the real version of The Grid, so he could be back in later installments.
  • Only One Name: Unless his acronym name could be counted as three, he's like most programs in this respect.
  • The Other Darrin: Like the other non-film appearances of the character, he is voiced by Fred Tatasciore, rather than Jeff Bridges.
  • The Perfectionist
  • Perma Stubble: Even moreso than many other examples, since, as a program, his avatar is unchanging.
  • A Pupil of Mine Until He Turned to Evil
  • Rage Against the Heavens: With "the heavens" being Kevin Flynn.
  • Really 700 Years Old: 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".
  • Rings of Death
  • Sadistic Choice: He foists one of these on Sora: the Keyblade in exchange for turning Rinzler back into Tron.
  • Totalitarian Utilitarian: He only wants the "perfect system". Unfortunately, he's the only one who thinks it's this, everyone else around him who follows him having been rectified.
  • Tron Lines
  • Turned Against Their Masters: Betrayed Kevin Flynn and took over The Grid.
  • The Unfought: Justified if one takes into account the source material. CLU can No Sell 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.
  • Villainous Breakdown: After being lectured by Kevin Flynn, and even more after learning of the disc swap that caused his defeat.
  • Villainous BSOD: After Riku defeats the Commantis.
  • Visionary Villain: He wants to create the perfect system.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He wants to bring the world to its maximum potential. Unfortunately, that means killing everything that's imperfect.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Clu has no problems with sending Rinzler and the Commantis to derezz Sora and Riku, respectively. Though, being a program, he would not know anything about children, and would just dismiss the two boys as small programs.


Other Worlds

    Clayton 

Clayton

"I’ll go along as an escort. After all, the jungle is a dangerous place."
"Blasted gorillas! I'll hunt down every last one of them!"
Voiced by: Banjō Ginga (Japanese), BRIAN BLESSED (English)
A veteran hunter. He acted as Jane's guide on her expedition to the jungle. He thought of animals only as prey, and dreamed of the money to be made selling gorillas to zoos back at home.

    Barbossa 

Captain Hector Barbossa

"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), Geoffrey Rush (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.

    Chernabog 

Chernabog

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.

    Claude Frollo 

Claude Frollo

"How dare you! I am a righteous man. Good 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), Corey Burton (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.
  • Abusive Parent: Or at least an abusive version of The Caretaker for Quasimodo.
  • Cool Sword: Brandishes one in cutscenes but is unfortunately The Unfought.
  • Disney Villain Death: Falls off Notre Dame into the fire below while Laughing Mad in Riku's scenario but gets the implied smiting by God himself that he did in the movie in Sora's.
  • Drunk on the Dark Side
  • Evil Old Folks
  • Famous Last Words: "Now you will be judged, just like the rest!" in Riku's story
  • Hanging Judge
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: 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 Laughing Mad as he fell, it may have been intentional
  • If I Can't Have You
  • Knight Templar
  • Laughing Mad: Read above.
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • Non-Human Sidekick: The Wargoyle, which replaces Captain Phoebus as his Dragon.
  • Non Sequitur Fallacy: His first lines in Sora's scenario are along the lines of "What terrible clothes. You must be a gypsy." Never mind that Sora's clothes are dominated by black, white, and red and sure don't look like the bright, colorful clothes that the Roma (the modern day, correct term for those who used to be referred to as gypsies) tended to wear in that world, but it doesn't even seem to occur to him that Sora's complexion and hair color don't look even an iota similar to the Roma.
    • Given that Quasimodo, the son of a gypsy that Frollo murdered, also has fair skin and reddish-brown hair, this conception is somewhat more believable, at least in the world's context.
  • Not Quite Dead: Yeah..., even after all the effort put in to stop him, that only happened in "that world's dream" meaning that 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.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain
  • Sinister Minister: Although he seems more intent on law (or his interpretation of it) than religion.
  • Summon Magic: The darkness in his heart allows him to call Dream Eaters which he believes is a divine power granted by God.
  • The Other Darrin: Had to be done, as Tony Jay passed away by the time the game was announced, much less being localized for American players.
  • The Unfought

    Captain Hook 

Captain Hook

"I have you now, Peter Pan! Today's the day I shall be rid of you forever!"
"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: Chikao Ohtsuka/Naoya Uchida (Japanese), Corey Burton (English)
Captain Hook is the leader of the pirates who sail the waters of Neverland, and Peter Pan's arch nemesis.
  • Badass Normal: 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.
  • Bling of War: He wears an expensive red pirate coat with a big hat to fit his captain status.
  • Boss Arena Idiocy: His boss battle in Ven's story in Birth by Sleep takes place on a small rocky island that has a few submerged steps around it that Ven can stand on. As it's on a lower level than the island itself, Ven is safe from all of Hook's attacks except his explosive presents, and since it still counts as ground, the crocodile can't get you. It's supposed to be counterbalanced by being unable to attack Hook while standing on them but there's nothing stopping you from using long-range spells like Fire or even Thunder.
  • Cool Boat: In the first game Riku hitches a ride on it to cross into other worlds.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Yes he's a bumbling, cowardly fool who can't even beat a kid, but when pushed enough...oh boy, he sure knows how to slit people apart with that sword and hook.
  • Dirty Coward
  • The Dragon: He seemed to be this to Maleficent in the first game, only out-ranked by her and Jafar and, later, Riku.
  • Hook Hand
  • Large Ham
  • Laughably Evil
  • Last Name Basis: Everyone calls him "Captain Hook" or "Hook". His given name (James) isn't even well known by most audiences.
  • Master Swordsman
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Just because he wimps out when the Croc visits, it doesn't mean he can't fight with a sword.
  • The Other Darrin: In the Japanese version of the first game, he was voiced by Chikao Ohtsuka. In Birth by Sleep he was voiced by Naoya Uchida.
  • Pirate
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: Disguised as presents just like in the movie.
  • Unstoppable Rage: 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. He also does this against Ven.

    Julius 

Julius

A gigantic monstrous version of Pete created by Dr. Frankenollie that Sora and Riku encounter in Traverse Town.
  • The Berserker
  • Bonus Boss: In 3D.
  • Damage-Sponge Boss: Twelve lifebars!
  • De-power: While electrified, he can lock away the commands used by Sora and Riku.
  • Duel Boss/In the End, You Are on Your Own: To even the odds, your Dream Eaters are forced to sit the fight out, so the only consideration when choosing your party members are what abilites they give you.
  • Elemental Punch: Electric version.
  • Expy: Of Pete.
  • Frankenstein's Monster
  • Genre Savvy: Spamming Dodge Roll will not get you far; he has several moves, particularly the running punch barrage, that are designed to counter or outrun Dodge Roll. On the bright side, he leaves some room for more creative ways to defend and counter (unlike a certain Birth by Sleep bonus boss or two).
  • Handicapped Badass: Has a peg leg.
  • Interface Screw: 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 from the "Cure" series.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He hits hard, and suprisingly fast for someone his size.
  • Shock and Awe: Taken to frightening extremes once you knock half his health off.
  • SNK Boss: His attacks hit ridiculously hard, about half of them can't be blocked, and getting pinned in a corner by any of his (numerous) combos is basically a death sentence. As described in Genre Savvy, he's incredibly hard to run away from. And he can jump to just about anywhere in the area and attack from any angle. Later in the fight, he channels lightning, so all his attacks then have ridiculous hitboxes and can occasionally lock out your commands.
  • Standard Status Effects: If he grabs you, prepare to be ravaged by almost every negative status effect in the game. Going in without at least Blindness Block is unwise.
  • Unexpected Character: Unlike some of the other reveals and characters in 3D, virtually nobody expected to see Julius, least of all as the secret boss.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: His attacks are basic, but very effective.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Using punches, elbow drops, charging tackles, and a punch barrage close to a spinning clothesline.

    Oogie Boogie 

Oogie Boogie

"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 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.

    Queen of Hearts 

The Queen of Hearts

"Off with their heads!"
Voiced by: Sumie Ozawa (Japanese), Tress MacNeille (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.
  • Adipose Rex
  • Decoy Antagonist: In the manga adaptation for Days, she appears to be the Big Bad, but the honor instead goes to the Cheshire Cat for throwing a hedgehog at her and framing Roxas for the crime, causing the furious Queen to order his execution by guillotine.
  • Flunky Boss: She's no threat, its her card soldiers you have to look out for.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: if struck in the boss fight, she flips upside-down revealing these.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!
  • Hanging Judge: Seems very prone to immediately ordering the decapitation of those who she assumes to go against her.
  • Harmless Villain: The Queen herself is useless in combat, her Card Soldiers rely on Zerg Rush 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.
  • Hidden Depths: After the final Keyhole is locked, and if you choose to return to her courtroom and talk to her, she and her subjects display a great deal of concern for The Darkness and are on lookout, showing they have more of a knowledge about otherworldly affairs than previously thought.
  • Large Ham
  • Offhand Backhand: If the rim of the booth she is sitting in is mounted during her boss fight, she does a really weak version of one.
  • Pimped-Out Dress
  • Staff of Authority: It's not really a staff though, it's more of a lollipop shaped like a heart.

    Scar 

Scar

"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.

    Shan Yu 

Shan Yu

"Now you'll bow to me!"
Voiced by: Hiroshi Fujioka (Japanese), Corey Burton (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.

    Tremaine Trio 

Lady Tremaine

"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. Keeping Cinderella as a slave, she will do anything to ensure her two daughters' own success.

Daughters

Drizella voiced by: Shinobu Adachi (Japanese); Russi Taylor (English)
Anastasia voiced by: Ayumi Kida (Japanese); Tress MacNeille or Gina Tuttle (English)
Cinderella's evil step-sisters. Sadistically and murderously cruel, they want nothing more than to bring misery to anyone they encounter, especially Cinderella herself.
  • Alpha Bitches: They are snobs, after all.
  • Arc Villain Duumvirate: They're one along with their mother for the Castle of Dreams.
  • Bait And Switch Bosses
  • The Bullies
  • Cain and Abel: Female examples. Drizella and Anastasia are the Cains to Cinderella's Abel. Though they didn't succeed in killing her.
  • Dreadful Musicians: Both of them, based on their journal entries. Drizella can't sing despite the costy classes she takes, and Anastasia takes pride in her flautist skills, despite being the worst flautist ever.
    • Evil Diva: Due to Drizella being pure evil, she can be considered one, even though we never hear her sing.
  • Evil Laugh: Alongside their mother, when they tried to murder Cinderella.
  • Evil Redhead: Anastasia
  • Green Eyed Monsters: Both are murderously envious to Cinderella because of her beauty.
  • Hate Sink: Alongside their mother and Clu. In fact, this is the only canon in which Anastasia is too evil to ever be redeemed.
  • If I Can't Have You: A non-romantic example: Drizella and Anastasia's refusal to allow their step-sister to live happily ever after triggers the summoning of the Cursed Coach.
  • Jerks with Hearts of Jerks: And there's no chance of redemption for Anastasia now, provided that the world does not appear in subsequent games.
  • Kill Them With Fire / Burn the Bitches
  • Made of Evil: Especially in contrast to Cinderella
  • Mummy's Little Villains
  • The Power of Hate: Their hatred towards Cinderella is what allowed them to summon the Cursed Coach AND, according to its journal entry, the Symphony Master
  • Sadists: Seeing their former step-sister being attacked by the Cursed Coach really pleases them.
  • Sibling Rivalry: To each other mostly, but most heartlessly to Cinderella, to the point where they are willing to kill her after she is freed from their tyranny.
  • Those Two Evil Girls
  • The Unfought: Gets themselves burned before Aqua could even fight them.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Cinderella getting her freedom from their tyranny, as well as the Prince's hand in marriage, is what caused the step-sisters to snap out of anger, jealousy and hatred.
  • Would Hurt a Child

    Ursula 

Ursula

"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".
