Major Supporting Characters
"I will tell you what your friend needs right now. It is not your protection. He needs you to believe."
: Takashi Inagaki (Japanese), Corey Burton
Mickey's Master. It is revealed in Birth by Sleep
that he is a retired Keyblade master
. He studied alongside Eraqus and Xehanort before giving Mickey the Star Seeker, and is the first to warn Eraqus of the Unversed. He and Mickey are currently trying to find those suffering and prepare for a reincarnated Xehanort. 3D
will involve him putting Sora and Riku through a Mark of Mastery exam. After the events of 3D he begins to prepare seven protectors for the Princesses of Heart heavily implying Kairi, one of the princesses herself as the last one.
- Ancient Keeper
- Ascended Extra: He appeared for only a brief while at the start of Kingdom Hearts II to provide exposition on the Nobodies, give Sora the Star Seeker, direct him to the Three Faries for a clothes change and give them back the Gummi Ship. Birth by Sleep gave him a much larger role, where he took a more active role in the storyline as well as giving him a bit of backstory beyond "Wise Old Wizard". As of Re:coded, he's become the Big Good.
- Also counts as one compared to his original role where he was Mickey's mentor in magic and characterized only by being exceedingly stern, and does not speak. His later cameos in House of Mouse has him give dirty looks to anyone that passes by and Mickey apparently being scared of him. It was not until Kingdom Hearts II that he started being characterized as a man of wisdom and respect, and is treated as such even by Mickey, is seen as a powerful figure in the universe and speaks, a characterization that would later be used in Epic Mickey.
- The Archmage
- Badass: He's gotta be Mickey's teacher.
- Big Good: as of Re:coded
- Cool Keyblade: He was the former owner of Mickey's original keyblade the Star Seeker.
- Cool Old Guy
- Fatal Flaw: Hesitation. He didn't want to intervene in Birth by Sleep because he feared being too presumptuous. His lack of initiative was underlined by his status as a retired Keyblade Master. Unfortunately, he had knowledge that could have spared Terra, Ven, and Aqua their fates. Growing out of this might be the reason why he was so gung-ho about obliterating the Nobodies in Kingdom Hearts II.
- Fountain of Youth: He turned back the ages of Sora and Riku a year in the Sleeping Worlds so that they could relearn how to use a keyblade from scratch.
- Hat of Power
- The Hermit
- Japanese Pronouns: "Watashi"
- The Mentor
- Mage Tower: The fittingly-named Mysterious Tower.
- Mr. Exposition
- The Obi-Wan
- Oh Crap: In Dream Drop Distance, Yen Sid is assured that what he thinks Xehanort is planning cannot succeeded since he would have to give up his body to travel through time. Then Mickey remembers Xehanort did do that, when he became a Heartless. Cue eyes widening and Yen Sid's calm breaking for a brief moment.
- Old Master
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Especially evident in how he names Riku Keyblade Master. Unlike Master Eraqus, he understands that Riku, being in tune with darkness, is more resistant to its corruption than someone who would reject it entirely. Therefore, he is willing to set aside commonly assumed prejudices against darkness to give Riku the Mark of Mastery, rather than, like Eraqus before him, reject such an applicant.
- Retired Badass
- Robe and Wizard Hat
- Sdrawkcab Name: One that dates to his original Fantasia appearance.
- Star Power: He consults the stars for guidance and has a prominent celestial motif in both dress and in the keyblade he used to wield the Star Seeker.
- The Stoic: Downplayed. Yen Sid only slightly emotes in facial expression and tone when speaking until...
- Not So Stoic: Mickey's revelation that Xehanort gave up his body upon transforming into Ansem, enabling him time traveling ability, causes Yen Sid to panic. An even larger and more comical example is his facial expression when Lea manages to summon his keyblade.
- Suddenly Voiced: This series marks the first time this character ever spoke. His newfound voice was carried on onto his appearance in Epic Mickey.
- Wizard Beard
- Wizard Classic

Princesses of Heart
From left to right: Belle, Aurora, Jasmine, Kairi, Alice, Snow White and Cinderella
Seven maidens who where born without any darkness in their heart, it is passed down through legend that they are the keepers of the Door to Darkness
and that when they are gathered the Final Keyhole will open revealing Kingdom Hearts
. In 3D Xehanort reveals the Princesses of Heart are the keepers of the light half of the X-blade, due to their hearts being born from the very fragments of light from the blade. In order to make the true X-Blade, he must have them confront his Thirteen Seekers Of Darkness or confront their protectors the Seven Guardians of Light.

"Sally, why didn't I listen to you?"
Voiced by: Masachika Ichimura (Japanese), Chris Sarandon (English)
The Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, Jack Skellington joins the cast for Kingdom Hearts
, Chain of Memories
, and Kingdom Hearts II
- Aesop Amnesia: In II, he's once again obsessed with the thought of Christmas, even though it's hinted that the events of the movie have already taken place prior.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: He is the Pumpkin King. Crosses into Asskicking Equals Authority when one takes into account that the only reason he has the job is because he's the scariest and the toughest.
- Bad Santa: In Kingdom Hearts II. This is not out of actually being evil, however, and more out of not really...knowing how Christmas operates, leading to him making such "decorations" as a guillotine in the middle of town square in addition to Christmas lights.
- Black Magic: His official job class is Black Mage but with darker twists.
- Fluffy Tamer: His goal in the first Kingdom Hearts, upon seeing how the Heartless were at first harmless, was to get them to dance with him as part of that year's Halloween. It works. Or it did work, until he tried to make the Heartless a heart.
- Dark Is Not Evil
- Dem Bones
- Eureka Moment: In 358/2 Days, Jack constantly finds inspiration from Roxas' behind the scenes antics in Halloween town, eventually leading to modeling a new attraction for next year after him.
- Evil Laugh
- Idiot Hero
- Good Old Fisticuffs: He uses his Bone Fists in battle although you won't see him be using them often.
- Japanese Pronouns: "Boku".
- Large Ham: More subtle then Oogie, but still.
- Limit Break: Dance Call in KHII
- Magic Dance: His Limit Break.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: The heart made in his attempt to get the Heartless to dance more enthusiastically ended up turning them hostile.
- Nightmare Fetishist
- Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant
- Noodle People
- Perky Goth
- Slasher Smile
- Squishy Wizard
"I'm the answer to your prayers!"
: Mitsuo Iwata
/Yuu Hayashi (Japanese), Christopher Steele (English)
The boy who would not grow up. Party member in the original, summon in the sequels, D-Link and boss fight (for Terra) in Birth by Sleep.
Voiced by: N/A
Peter Pan's pixie companion, at his request she accompanied Sora as a summon in the first game and does the same when Peter himself is a summon.
"Why... Why did you...you come here? I came to fight for Belle. And though I am on my own, I will fight. I wonít leave without her. Thatís why Iím here."
The big furry Jerk with a Heart of Gold
teams up with you in the first game when you visit Hollow Bastion. Though you visit his castle in KH2
, he doesn't fight alongside you there because he's too busy being manipulated by Xaldin. Unlike most of the guest stars
, he's one of the more plot critical, assisting in bringing down Maleficient and Xaldin (and he can even fight Xemnas in the first game's Final Mix edition).
- Badass: Possibly the most Badass Disney-native teammate in the first & second games.
- Baleful Polymorph
- The Berserker
- Brainwashed and Crazy
- Determinator: He tore through the fabric of the universe with nothing but the force of his rage and the strength of his will.
- Genius Bruiser
- Heroic BSOD: Talked out of it fairly quickly.
- Hyper Competent Sidekick: In the first game, the Beast is your saving grace. When you team up with him, you've just lost Donald and Goofy and the Keyblade, putting you alone armed with only magic against slews of powerful enemies. The Beast's combat abilities become essential to your survival until things go back to normal.
- Japanese Pronouns: "Watashi"
- Lightning Bruiser
- Limit Break: Twin Howl (in ''Kingdom Hearts II)
- Mighty Roar
- Natural Weapon: His Claws.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Lampshaded by Roxas when he compared Beast to Xemnas, who would let his subjects do the grunt job defending their HQ from danger rather facing them head-on first, as Beast did.
- The Worf Effect: Usually inflicts this on his foes (including Xaldin!), but Riku manages to take him down at Hollow Bastion in the first game, but this mainly happened because Beast was weakened from ripping his way through the darkness to reach that point. In Days, guess who manages to one-shot him and send him flying over the gates of his own castle? Infernal Engine.
- You Shall Not Pass: Does this after the first visit to Hallow Bastion. The second visit reveals he survived.
"Mushu, I'm not sure... I haven't even joined the army yet. I have to take my father's place to preserve the Fa family honor. I just hope I don't get discovered."
Voiced by: Mayumi Suzuki (Japanese), Ming-Na (English)
Sora and co. meet up with her (and their old ally Mushu) right as she's about to join the army.
"That's right, you heard of me! I'm little, lethal, and legendary! Now y'all scram, before I get my dragon dander up!"
A guardian spirit of the Fa family, he accompanied Sora when the Fairy Godmother released him from the fireglow gem and accompanied Mulan through her adventure.

"The three of you together make great heroes. And as a team, I'm sure you can overcome anything!"
: Yasunori Matsumoto
(Japanese), Sean Astin/Tate Donovan (English)
Young Hercules voiced by: Masakazu Suzuki (Japanese), Josh Keaton (English)
The son of Zeus and Hera. Hercules is the hero of Olympus Coliseum, and he is currently the reigning champ of the Games.
Sadly, not actually voiced by Johnny Depp. Guess which world he shows up on.
"I'm lucky to have friends who will stand by my side. My father wasn't so lucky, he always had Scar lurking behind his back, always trying to cut him down."
: Mitsuru Miyamoto
(Japanese), Cam Clarke
Young Simba voiced by: Tatsuya Nakazaki (Japanese), Jonathan Taylor Thomas (English, archive audio)
He was a summon in the first game; when Sora visits the Pride Lands in KH2
, he joins the party for real.
Click here to see Rinzler
"Sora, Donald, Goofy... And all the Users out there
... Thank you... You really helped me. You made me so much stronger. You taught me what friendship is truly all about. And I'll never forget it."
A copy of the original program made by Ansem to help run Space Paranoids, the computer systems in Hollow Bastion. Unfortunately, Ansem also included the MCP.
In Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance]
, Sora visits the Grid and meets the original Tron... who's been brainwashed by Clu into "Rinzler", much like in TRON: Legacy.
- Badass Bookworm: Mostly because he's a computer program, programmed to know about computers, but still... He is also programmed to kick some serious Heartless ass, which forced MCP to delete his programming before he was locked up.
- Bound and Gagged: In the manga adaptation, if one considers being bound to a wall by your arch nemesis as such.
- Deadly Disc: His Identity Disc, they become closer to Rings of Death as Rinzler
- Demoted to Extra: In Riku's Grid story, he has no lines, is only given two brief appearances, and is killed by Riku in the second of those.
- Disney Villain Death: He falls to his death in The Grid, at least in Riku's story. He may have survived in Sora's story.
- Distressed Dude: In the manga adaptation
- Electric Torture: Again, in the manga
- Face-Heel Turn: As Rinzler in The Grid, though not by choice.
- Fighting Your Friend: As Rinzler.
- However, It is not strictly the same Tron as was encountered in Kingdom Hearts II. Space Paranoids was a copy of The Grid made some years before, along with all the programs within it, like Tron. The Tron that became Rinzler is different than the Tron that was Sora's friend. This doesn't make the situation any easier for Sora, though.
- Then again, some fans believe that Radiant Garden Tron and Rinzler share the same heart, as hinted by some of the dialog.
- Friendly Tickle Torture: Winds up a victim of this as a result of his friends being mischievous.
- Holographic Terminal: In his Limit Break
- Interface Screw: His boss fight as Rinzler in Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] gives him an attack that reverses gravity and inverts Sora/Riku's controls.
- Limit Break: Setup
- Long Range Fighter: The first purely long ranged party character in the series.
- Japanese Pronouns: "Boku".
- Pinball Projectile
- Precision-Guided Boomerang
- Really 700 Years Old: Due to the sheer amount of time that Kevin was in exile (approximately one thousand in-Grid years), coupled with Clu's Creative Sterility, Tron in The Grid is at least one thousand years old.
- Redemption Equals Death: By Taking the Bullet for Sora. However, Clu's dialogue about "retrieving" him (a feat impossible if he had derezzed) implies it is a Disney Death.
- Shock and Awe: Has the Thunder spell.
- The Stoic: Has no emotions when first met.
- Not So Stoic: A rare positive example: Tron is suddenly full of emotion upon the defeat of the MCP, causing everyone to comment on his "silly side".
I think Tron's been hanging around those guys too much.
- Stunned Silence: Twice in the manga
- Techno Babble: When first met, which the others can't quite understand. He gets better.
- Tron Lines: Duh.
- Wall Crawl: As Rinzler.
"The one and only GENIE OF THE LAMP!"
The Genie's lamp was found by Aladdin in the desert and he used it to summon Genie, but it was taken by Jafar and Genie was forced to fight for him until Jafar was defeated. Since then, Genie has been a summon support for Sora.
- Apologetic Attacker: When he was forced to be Jafar's bitch during the boss fight.
- Benevolent Genie: To Aladdin and Sora, mostly to Sora.
- Black Mage: In Kingdom Hearts.
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: In the Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories manga, after Genie is free, he lists the places he wants to go. He then says "I could even go to the other side of this page."
- Genie in a Bottle: Duh
- Japanese Pronouns: "Washi"
- Large Ham: Remember that this character was originally voiced by Robin Williams.
- Limit Break: FOUR of them, depending on form: Sonic Rave (Valor), Strike Judgement (Wisdom), Final Arcana (Master) and Infinity (Final)
- Magic Knight: In Kingdom Hearts II.
- Mythology Gag: The manga for the original game used the term 'djinn', whereas 'Genie' is his name; the big blue wish-granter introduces himself as "the Djinn of the Lamp! My clients call me Genie." This reflects the original Thousand and One Night stories, wherein the spirits within lamp and ring were both referred to as 'djinns' rather than 'genies'.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Homer Simpson helps Sora destroy the Heartless.
- Thou Shalt Not Kill: Averted, he's forced by Jafar to crush the heroes but he made sure he would miss or warn the heroes first before he attacked.
- Sealed Good in a Can
- Slave Mook: Thankfully, not for long.
- Took a Level in Badass: In the second game, he has the magic to copy his own Keyblade and use Limit Forms. He uses it like nobody's business. Hilarity Ensues.

"A... koo... wa... fren... Terra... Ve..."
He appears at the Bastion in KHII without much explanation and soon becomes one of Sora's summon allies. Birth By Sleep
reveals he has a history of partnering up with Keyblade wielders.
"We have met before, once upon a dream."
: Tōru Furusawa
(Japanese), Josh Robert Thompson (English)
"Took your time, didn't you?"
: Minoru Uchida/Hiroshi Arikawa (Japanese), Jeff Bennett
The only non-Final Fantasy
member of the Hollow Bastion Restoration Committee. His house is the group's base. He is also Sora's chief mentor in magic.

Voiced by: Atsushi Ii (Japanese), Alan Young (English)
Donald's famous uncle, the eccentric entrepreneur is traveling across the worlds in hopes of adding to his already vast fortune (thanks to Merlin, he made it to Radiant Garden before Gummi Ships had even been invented). His latest business venture involves sea-salt ice cream.
Voiced by: Mika Doi (Japanese), Tress MacNeille(English)
Voiced By: Ikuko Tani (Japanese), Zoe Caldwell (English)
The leader of the United Galactic Federation, and the woman responsible for transporting Dr. Jumba Jookiba and his experiments to a prison asteroid. In spite of being against Dr. Jookiba, she is rather reasonable with the traveling Keybladers who encounter her.
- Badass Cape: Though she doesn't really show herself to be badass, her cape is rather impressive.
- Bald Women
- Four-Fingered Hands: Or rather, three-fingered.
- The Greys: Downplayed. She's taller than a normal human, in spite of looking like a normal Grey.
- Hero Antagonist: More than Gantu on the heroic nature, less than him on the antagonist on some levels.
- Humanoid Aliens: Moreso than Gantu or the other aliens on the ship, anyway.
- Icy Blue Eyes: As befitting her Iron Lady persona.
- Iron Lady
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Willing to release inmates from imprisonment to help her, as well as willing to listen to the reasons for why people seem to randomly appear on her ship. She even demotes Gantu for stepping beyond his station in his persecution of Stitch.
- The Reptilians: She looks like a cross between The Greys and a humanoid hydrosaur.
Voiced by: Chika Sakamoto (Japanese), Russi Taylor (English)
Donald's triplet nephews who offer their services in each game doing different things.
Philoctetes is voiced by: Ichirō Nagai (Japanese), Robert Costanzo (English)
Megara is voiced by: Rica Matsumoto (Japanese), Susan Egan (English)
Friends of Hercules, who often side with him during his training and conflict with Hades.
"Gee whiz. I wish I had lots of good friends.
"I'll never lie again- honest I won't."
Voiced by: Yūki Tokiwa (Japanese), Seth Adkins, Nick Carson (English)
A wooden puppet carved by the toymaker Geppetto and given life by the Blue Fairy. During the events of the original game
, Pinocchio appears within Monstro where he is pursued by Riku, who is curious as to how a wooden puppet can have a heart. He returns in Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance]
, which explains how he was swallowed by Monstro.
Quasimodo is voiced by: Sosuke Komori (Japanese), Ari Rubin (English)
Esmeralda is voiced by: Urara Takano
(Japanese), Renee Faia (English)
Phoebus is voiced by: Souma Suzuki (Japanese), Phil LaMarr
The title character of The Hunchback of Notre Dame
, they aid Riku and Sora in their visit to Notre Dame Kingdom Hearts 3D
Quorra is voiced by: Yuka Komatsu (Japanese), Erin Cottrell (English)
A trio who opposes CLU 2, Kevin is a User and the creator of the Grid and CLU 2, Sam is his son who came to The Grid to find him and Quorra is an ISO and confidante to Kevin Flynn during his years in exile.
- Action Girl: Quorra
- Artificial Brilliance: In-Universe in the case of Quorra, who was created by the Grid as an ISO, and has not only triple D-DNA, but also is coded in a way that is "beyond" Kevin Flynn, hence why he wants to find a way to get her off-Grid.
- Artificial Human: Quorra
- Badass Beard: Kevin
- Badass Longcoat: Kevin
- Beard of Sorrow: Kevin
- Damsel in Distress/Badass in Distress: Quorra is captured by Rinzler at one point, but escapes on her own.
- Demoted to Extra: Kevin and Sam only get one scene in Sora's story. Justified, in that Sora's story is more about the interactions between he and Tron and the nature of the hearts of programs, rather than about the plot of TRON: Legacy, like Riku's is.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Kevin does this as he did in the movie, in order to stop CLU from escaping the Grid.
- Laser Blade: Quorra whips one out to protect Sam from CLU, formed from a baton.
- Grappling-Hook Pistol: It's implied by the last scenes of Riku's side of The Grid, if one takes into account the source material, that she can also turn the same baton into the Light Cable program.
- Last of Her Kind: Quorra is the last ISO.
- Latex Space Suit: Standard Grid uniforms, and all.
- MacGuffin: Kevin's "Master Disc", which could hypothetically allow for travel off-Grid by using the Portal.
- MacGuffin Girl: Quorra, which is why Kevin wants to get not only himself and his son, but also her off of the Grid.
- Mentor Occupational Hazard: Poor Kevin.
- Mr. Exposition: Kevin's role is to explain the workings of The Grid to Sora and Riku.
- My Greatest Failure: Kevin sees being unable to stop CLU from destroying the ISOs as this.
- No Indoor Voice: Sam is extremely loud in his first few scenes with Riku.
- Non-Standard Character Design: All three of them use realistic proportions are rendered like actual people. It's much the same deal as with the Port Royal characters.
- Only One Name: Quorra. Justified, since all programs are like that.
- The Other Darrin: As with CLU, he is voiced by Fred Tatasciore, rather than by his actor, Jeff Bridges.
- Physical God: Kevin, who is also The Maker of the Grid.
- Really 700 Years Old: Quorra was alive at least since the Purge of the ISOs, and Kevin is even older than that, making them both approximately one thousand years old, counting in-Grid cycles as years.
- Rings of Death: All of them carry an identity disk that functions as one, though only Quorra's is shown in action.
- Totally Radical: Kevin
- Tron Lines
- What Happened to the Mouse?: After Sora goes off to search for Tron's source code and to save Quorra, Kevin and Sam disappear from the plot, mainly because they are trying to fulfill another aspect of it (keeping CLU from getting the Master Disc).
