    Major Supporting Characters 

Yen Sid

"I will tell you what your friend needs right now. It is not your protection. He needs you to believe."
Voiced by: Takashi Inagaki (Japanese), Corey Burton (English)
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: His "Mysterious Tower", which isn't really that mysterious being about four games old.
  • 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: Although this series does not mark the first time this character ever spoke, it would be the first time he spoke since a brief appearance on the Wonderful World of Disney. His newfound voice was carried on onto his appearance in Epic Mickey.
  • Wide Eyes and Shrunken Irises: He has this as a permanent look.
  • Wizard Beard
  • Wizard Classic
  • Xanatos Gambit: According to Word of God, he knew very well he couldn't proceed without working into Xehanort's in II. He knew that upon the destruction of a Heartless and Nobody, the Somebody returns, and thus Master Xehanort would eventually return. But without much of a choice, as Xemnas needed to be stopped, he encouraged Sora to wipe out Organization XIII.

Jiminy Cricket

"Well, I see big adventures coming their way! Looks like it's up to me to keep track of it all in my journal."
Voiced by: Kaneta Kimotsuki (Japanese); Eddie Carroll, Phil Snyder (English)
He travels with Sora and co. to keep a record of their adventures.

Philoctetes

Voiced by: Ichirō Nagai (Japanese), Robert Costanzo (English)
Phil is a satyr who runs the Olympus Coliseum.
  • Cool Old Guy: Usually he's this off of the coliseum floor. Notably with Roxas, he doesn't hold any bad blood after he finds out that Roxas was not the kid he was supposed to be training for Hercules.
  • Dirty Old Man: Not as bad as most examples, but Aqua is only 19 in Birth by Sleep at the most while he's centuries old. He has a few suggestive comments towards Aqua. He doesn't outright look her over like Hades though, however.
  • Continue Your Mission, Dammit!: During the Hydra boss battle in Kingdom Hearts II, he helpfully reminds you to GET UP ON THE HYDRAS BACK. He will repeat it with no breaks in between.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: He makes a few suggestive comments indicating his interest in Aqua, the Ms. Fanservice she is.

Pluto

"Arf, Arf!"
Voiced By: Bill Farmer
Mickey's loyal dog, who randomly shows up at various points of the story.
  • Big Friendly Dog
  • Canine Companion: To Kairi in KH2.
  • The Nose Knows
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He disappears near the beginning of the first game, then shows up at the very end to get Sora, Donald and Goofy moving again. The sequel confirms that he can basically turn up wherever he wants, presumably through some form of Offscreen Teleportation.
    • Word of God implies that because of the way the Corridors of Darkness work, Pluto has access to them as long as he's not with Mickey.
      • 358/2 days actually shows him entering a Corridor of Darkness in Traverse Town.

Queen Minnie

"We hope for your safe return."
Voiced by: Yuko Mizutani (Japanese), Russi Taylor (English)

The queen of Disney Castle. Not a full party member, but kicks serious Heartless butt when you have to lead her on an Escort Mission.

    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 χ-blade, due to their hearts being born from the very fragments of light from the blade. In order to make the true χ-Blade, he must have them confront his Thirteen Seekers Of Darkness or confront their protectors the Seven Guardians of Light.

    Party Members and Summons 

Tarzan

"Friends, same heart. Clayton, lose heart. No heart, no see friends. No heart, no friends."
Voiced by: Jurota Kosugi (Japanese), Tony Goldwyn (English)
Joined you in the first game's Deep Jungle. Tarzan was originally the first Guest Star Party Member in the series, but as his world is no longer canon, this honor now belongs to Aladdin.

Aladdin

"A deal’s a deal, Genie. Now, you can go anywhere you want. Youíre your own master. But if you can, itíd be great if you could go along with them and help Sora find Jasmine."
Voiced by: Shinichiro Miki (Japanese), Scott Weinger (English)
Lends Sora and co. a hand in Agrabah in both games. In canon, Aladdin is the first Guest Star Party Member in the series.

Ariel

"Wait, I'm going with you! My father is hurt and it's all my fault! I have to stop Ursula!"
Voiced by: Mayumi Suzuki (Japanese), Jodi Benson (English)
The mermaid princess of Atlantica appears in Kingdom Hearts, Chain of Memories (a memory of her at least), and Kingdom Hearts II.

Jack Skellington

"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.

Peter Pan

"I'm the answer to your prayers!"
Voiced by: 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.

Tinker Bell

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.

The Beast

"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."
Voiced by: Koichi Yamadera (Japanese), Robby Benson (English)
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.
    • Badass Cape
    • Badass Normal: see Hyper Competent Sidekick
    • Badass Boast: See his quote above. It's not just this though; it's a highly motivating speech convincing Sora to not give up despite having suffered a critical loss. There's also this one, which is just what you might need to hear when fighting Maleficent or Xemnas:
    (after reviving on his own)Beast: It's not finished YET!!!
  • Baleful Polymorph
  • The Berserker
  • Brainwashed and Crazy
  • Dark Is Not Evil
  • Determinator: He tore through the fabric of the universe with nothing but the force of his rage and the strength of his will. He's also the only Disney character to face off with two members of the Organization.
  • 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
  • Mind Rape: Falls victim to this in the first game. A shadow heartless makes it seem like Belle turns into it, and runs away in front of Beast, Prompting him to get angry and abandon Sora in his chase after it.
  • Natural Weapon: His Claws.
  • One-Man Army: Though he already proved this a thousand times over in the first three games of the series, 358/2 Days has him stuck in this position the entirety of the game, being the only one who can actually protect his castle from the Heartless. And he doesn't complain about it one tiny bit: it takes That One Boss to finally take him down.
  • 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.

Fa Mulan

"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.

Mushu

"That's right, you heard of me! I'm little, lethal, and legendary! Now y'all scram, before I get my dragon dander up!"
Voiced by: Koichi Yamadera (Japan), Mark Moseley (English)
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.

Hercules

"The three of you together make great heroes. And as a team, I'm sure you can overcome anything!"
Voiced by: 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.

Jack Sparrow

"When you sailed away in my ship and marooned me on that godforsaken spit of land with naught but a pistol and a single shot, you forgot one very important thing, mate. I'm Captain Jack Sparrow."
Voiced by: Hiroaki Hirata (Japanese), James Arnold Taylor (English)
Sadly, not actually voiced by Johnny Depp. Guess which world he shows up on.

Simba

"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."
Voiced by: Mitsuru Miyamoto (Japanese), Cam Clarke (English)
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.

TRON/Rinzler

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."
Voiced by: Hiroshi Tsuchida (Japanese), Bruce Boxleitner (English)

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.
  • Ascended Extra: In a weird way. Despite being the title character of the franchise and film he hails from, Tron in the original movie was a secondary character with little to no character development or well-defined personality. Due to "Space Paranoids" in Kingdom Hearts II excising all of the other heroic Program and User characters, Tron becomes the sole character representing that world to Sora and friends, and as a result has much more extensive and meaningful interactions with the Users, as well as an entire character arc that was not present in the original film, concerning him learning how to be less coldly logical and understanding the emotional behaviour of Users. In the actual continuity, Tron would not develop a very distinct personality until TRON: Uprising, which took the character in a very contrasting direction.
  • 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.
  • Cyberpunk
  • 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 knocked off the Throneship by Riku in the second of those.
  • Disney Villain Death: He appears to falls to his death in The Grid.
  • 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.
  • Leitmotif: As Rinzler in 3D, he gets a theme called "Rinzler Recompiled", making him the first Disney villain to get his own boss theme since Chernabog.
  • Limit Break: Setup
  • Long-Range Fighter: The first purely long ranged party character in the series.
  • Magitek: An unintentional example. The "MCP Eradication Program" was exposed to magic when Merlin, offended at being called an old loon, attacks Cid with a fire spell, which resulted in Tron getting a boost in magic in addition to the upgrade.
  • Japanese Pronouns: "Boku".
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Subverted. Although Tron comes from a live-action film, his world's limited colors makes it easier for Sora and his friends to blend in.
  • 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 unique positive example: Tron is suddenly full of emotion upon the defeat of the MCP, causing everyone to comment on his "silly side". KH 3 D implies that his friendship with Sora allowed Tron to grow a heart.
    Yuffie: 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.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: If it's not Wargoyle, it's Rinzler. He's capable at close-quarters and long-distance combat, and he's dangerous at either range, often dealing hard hits by slashing with his Identity Discs, or throwing them. This is also the first boss Flowmotion isn't completely practical on, since wandering too far will cause him to throw his Discs with the added property of tracking you. The Interface Screw mentioned above only adds onto the hurt. The only haven you have in this fight is Counter Rush.
  • Wall Crawl: As Rinzler.

Genie

"The one and only GENIE OF THE LAMP!"
Voiced by: Koichi Yamadera (Japanese), Dan Castellaneta (English)
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.

Stitch/Experiment 626

Click here  to see Experiment 626

"A... koo... wa... fren... Terra... Ve..."
Voiced by: Koichi Yamadera (Japanese), Chris Sanders (English)
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.

Prince Phillip

"We have met before, once upon a dream."
Voiced by: Tōru Furusawa (Japanese), Josh Robert Thompson (English)

    Other NPC's 

Merlin

"Took your time, didn't you?"
Voiced by: Minoru Uchida/Hiroshi Arikawa (Japanese), Jeff Bennett (English)
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.

Scrooge McDuck

"Adventure is the mother of industry!"
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.
  • Badass Grandpa: It takes guts and major titanium balls to talk back to an Unversed three times your size armed with nothing but a hat and cane. Given whom his nephew is, it's implied that Scrooge is just as capable of kicking Unversed, Heartless and Nobody nether regions when the situation calls for it; he did, after all, travel with Mickey and surely picked up something.
  • Intrepid Merchant: Not even the vastness of outer space can stop this guy from looking to expand his empire.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal
  • Japanese Pronouns: "Watashi"
  • Nice Hat
  • Self-Made Man
  • Trade Mark Favorite Food: Ice Cream.
  • Uncle Pennybags: Maybe not in spending money, but every conversation with Scrooge in the series so far has been nothing short of awesome.

Daisy Duck

Voiced by: Mika Doi (Japanese), Tress MacNeille(English)

Grand Councilwoman

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.

Huey, Dewey and Louie

Voiced by: Chika Sakamoto (Japanese), Russi Taylor (English)
Donald's triplet nephews who offer their services in each game doing different things.

Megara

Voiced by: Rica Matsumoto (Japanese), Susan Egan (English)

The Love Interest of Hercules, who often sides with him during his training and conflict with Hades.

Pinocchio

"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 heartnote . He returns in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, which explains how he was swallowed by Monstro.

Quasimodo, Esmeralda and Phoebus

Quasimodo is voiced by: Sosuke Komori (Japanese), Ari Rubin (English)

Phoebus is voiced by: Souma Suzuki (Japanese), Phil La Marr (English)

Sam Flynn, Kevin Flynn, and Quorra

Sam is voiced by: Daisuke Hirakawa (Japanese), Ross Thomas (English)
Kevin is voiced by: Tsutomu Isobe (Japanese), Fred Tatasciore (English)
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.

The Cheshire Cat

"The Cheshire Cat has all the answers ó but doesn't always tell. The answer, the culprit, the cat all lie in darkness."
Finally voiced by Jim Cummings in the 2.5 HD remix.

The famous cat from Wonderland who provides cryptic clues to anyone who's circumstances interest him. Its unclear as to whose side he's really on, but he tends to favor helping Sora most when he reveals himself.

  • Armor-Piercing Question: "Who are you?" said by a dead-serious Sora in the Manga, This invokes no cryptic talk from the cat, only a moment of silence and a more straight-forward explaination as to where Alice was taken.
  • Adaptational Villainy: He's way meaner in the Days Manga where he pins his beaning the Queen of Hearts head with a hedgehog on Roxas, possibly because of his being with Organization 13 at the time.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: Him talking to Roxas and implying that Nobodies have hearts during their conversation turns out to be completely accurate. Likewise, His talk about how Lies and Truths can be the same thing plays a great deal in the series plot, and his talk about how a strong light can cast a powerful shadow is brought up again later in Birth by Sleep (though admittedly, while with him it was more literal, casting a shadow of the Trickmaster, while in the Fairy Godmonther's case, she was talking about how using light exclusively can lead to more darkness, in an influential-sense).
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Up for debate, but its somewhat implied that he's connected to the darkness in some way based on his mysterious and all-knowing personality. In the end though, he is well meaning, if hard to follow.
  • The Omniscient: If his quote above is any indication. He seems to like seeing others figure things out on their own, but for the most part likes simply misleading and confusing them with his riddles. He's also one of the few Disney characters That has talked to Organization 13 members while Roxas was with them.
  • Refusal of the Call: A rare villainous example, in the manga, the Disney Villains offered him a position in their council, but he turned them down in favor of helping Sora.
  • Spanner in the Works: His last cryptic conversation with Roxas is one of the events that makes him begin to ponder about the Organization's motives and if he has a heart or not, striking a severe blow to Xehanort's plans.
  • The Trickster: Moreso in the Manga than in the videogame.
  • Summon Magic: A possible way that the Trickmaster was brought about was by him summoning it
  • Trickster Mentor: What he ultimately is in the first game, as he leads Sora to pursue evidence in order move things along , and seemingly sets up Sora to expect the unexpected by summoning the Trickmaster Heartless, which upon its defeat reveals the first Keyhole the group comes across. His parting actions are giving away Ice Magic and giving a more straight-forward hint as to where Alice is.
  • Troll: Like what Daisy is to being Tsundere Cheshire seems to be the Ur Example in Disney animation. Moreso in the Manga, where he has a small Luxord cornered in a tree hole. He discusses luck with Luxord, and when the Organization 13 member bets he can cut off Cheshire's arm, the cat reveals that the paw he was using was nothing more that a sharp back-scratcher. This prompts Luxord to make a hilarious Oh, Crap face upon realizing he's not as good a gambler as he thought.
  • The Voiceless: Literally so; in every one of his appearances his dialog comes from text boxes, and he doesn't have a voice actor for his scenes, despite both being a pretty important character in the series and the fact that Jim Cummings voices lots of his other characters like Winnie-the-Pooh, Pete, and Tigger. Finally averted after fourteen years with 2.5 HD remix

Card Soldiers

"Are you ready to present evidence before the queen?"
voice actor: N/A

The Queen of Hearts seemingly limitless supply of Mooks who only serve her out of fear of losing their heads to her temper.

  • No Peripheral Vision: During Roxas' stealthier missions in Wonderland, they have cones of awareness, and its way less strenuous than when you have to keep Pete in your sights. In Re:coded, this is used again, but a glitch the Blox are causing makes them get Super Speed and therefore, impossible to get by.
  • Hidden Depths: They, along with the White Rabbit and Queen of Hearts, seem to be watchful for the shadows after the final Keyhole is locked, showing that they have some understanding of what is going on.
  • Jerkass some cards a rude to the heroes due to their suspicions and involvement in the issue at hand.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: No matter how many time you will knock them down, as long as the Crank Tower they are protecting is not destroyed, they'll just revive a minute later, similar to Donald and Goofy.
  • Minion with an F in Evil: They are rather incompetent...
  • Punch Clock Villain: They never do much without a direct (and usually angry) order from Their Queen.
  • Red Shirt Army: surprisingly subverted, The Queen of Hearts definitely seems to have a lot of these guys running about and most of them are indistinguishable form each other, but not one of them has ever died or been lost to the darkness that we know of.
  • Turns Red: Heart Card Soldiers are stunned when you hit their queen, but as soon as she gets up, they get pretty mad and begin to focus their attacks on Sora.

White Rabbit

''"Oh, my fur and whiskers! Iím late, Iím late, Iím late! Oh, dear, oh dear, oh dear! Iím here, I should be there. Iím late, Iím late, Iím late! The queen, sheíll have my head for sure!"
voice actor: Corey Burton

A rabbit who serves as the herald to the Queen Of Hearts, always late (for some reason), he usually is seen dashing to his majesty's court to avoid losing his head.

  • Establishing Character Moment: a very unique case in that he's both this for himself, and world of Wonderland. The first thing that anyone new does when they arrive is see the rabbit running along, panicking about being late. It is strange, abrupt, and leaves the characters with their first questions about the place.
  • Undying Loyalty: The only perceivable reason as to why he sticks around with the Queen in the first place.

Caterpillar

A character appearing in the downloadable V-Cast Kingdom Hearts cell phone game. He sits on a leaf in Wonderland, with a hookah in hand, aiding Sora in a few ways.

  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Though more benevolent than most.
  • Exiled from Continuity: In a sense, Kingdom Hearts V-Cast was made by Disney Mobile, so while it makes sense that he'd appear in Wonderland's chapter from the Disney side of things, he isn't considered canon because Square-Enix's games don't feature him in Wonderland.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: To the flowers that you give items in the original. giving him potions gives effects or makes him speak.

Clara Cluck

"What's this? It looks like a window, but it's got a strange mark written on it...I'd like to take a peek, but it's kinda creepy."
vioce actor: none

A famous opera-singing hen who has the honor of being the first cartoon character to appear alongside Mickey, Donald, and Goofy in a color cartoon. Here she's one of the civilians of Timeless River, who takes note of some of the things going on.

  • Apathetic Citizens: She's one of them. As she clearly has taken a notice to the things going on. One of her quotes even implies that she just stood around looking at the windows hanging in the air.

Horace Horsecollar

"There's a room through that window, but that isn't all. The furniture's being sucked away. At this rate, it'll soon be an empty room."
voice actor: Bill Farmer

An old friend of Mickey's who is first encountered in Timeless River in II, then in Disney Town in Birth by Sleep. In the first game, he's another citizen the heroes encounter who chats with them, in the prequel game, he's the owner of Disney Town's Fruit Ball Arena.

  • Apathetic Citizens: Not as much as Clara Cluck though, while he still doesn't do anything about the strange windows, he at least gives players more of a heads up about whats going on, such as pointing out the Pete's chasing each other.
  • Ascended Extra: compared to II His role is greatly expanded upon in Birth by Sleep, interacting with the heroes of all three narratives, and hosting a mini game for them.
  • Nice Guy

Clarabelle Cow

"Whoa, what's the hurry? You're looking a little worn out. If you don't take the time to rest now and then, you may wind up in trouble.
voiced by: none

One of Mickey's old friends who appears in Timeless River alongside Clara and Horace. Excited about Disney Castle's construction, she hangs out on Cornerstone Hill and takes note of the strange dealie's going on.

  • Action Girl: If her wanting to stop the fire in the Building Site is any indication.
  • Apathetic Citizens: Actually, out of the trio In Timeless River, she's the least apathetic. She's worried about Sora, Donald, and Goofy's well-being and asks them to rest, and wants to help put out the fire in one of the windows, but is stopped by not really knowing how the windows work. She also explains how the world is structured to the gang as well.
  • Been There, Shaped History: In a sense. She mentions asking about having a nice big garden installed in the not-yet-built Disney Castle, and given there is a large garden in Disney Castle in the modern day, it seems she got it.

Past/Captain Pete

"Hey you! Seen any bad guys around here?"
Voiced by: Jim Cummings

Pete, back when he was Captain of the steamboat; a tad hard-headed and gruff, he was surprisingly a well-meaning guy. Never seems to catch on as to whats really going on, but he still throws himself into the fray anyway. See Present Pete's character profile in the antagonists section, this one focuses on Past Pete.

  • Big Fun: If allowing Sora to pilot his steam boat is any indication.
  • Boisterous Bruiser
  • Butt Monkey: But damned if he doesn't have courage or try to help. What happens when he attacks someone freely? He hurts his own hand. His most dangerous attacks? panicking and landing upon being hit in the air.
  • Catchphrase: "Whats that for?!" said at the beginning of every fight he's in, and whenever you hit him.
  • The Load: at least when he means to attack, otherwise you can use him against Present Pete in other ways
  • Nice Hat: His wobbly Steam captain hat, which even shoots steam and toots like a steam whistle.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: See Catchphrase
  • You Don't Look Like You: design-wise Pete in the past barely even resembles his present self, having thicker ears, more-proportionate arms, a tail, round face, whiskers, normal teeth (as opposed to Present Pete's Four, hippo-like molars). Despite this, everyone recognizes him as Pete, possibly for the sake of the story. also there's also the fact that his personality is almost a complete reverse of his future self.

Past Mickey

(shakes Sora's hand in excited greatfulness)
voiced by: none

Mickey back when his boss was Captain Pete. A lot less serious and way more cheerful, Past Mickey aid the group by showing them what to do in every window to the past. to see regular Mickey, go to his profile in the Mickey Donald and Goofy section.

  • Badass Adorable: He tries hard to stop the chaos ensuing in each window, but since he's not a keyblade wielder at this point, he tries a more hands-on approach to it. Watch him swing in to kick a Hammer Frame heartless that was sneaking up on Sora off a scaffolding.
  • Been There, Shaped History: Somewhat subtle, but its theorized that he gained and interest in keyblade wielding by watching Sora fight and save Timeless River.
  • Brilliant but Lazy: Well not lazy in the sense that he was aiding in protecting his world, as he relaxes on the Cornerstone's platform as Sora pilots the steamboat.
  • The Speechless: Strangely he's the only character in Timeless River that does not speak at all, instead, cartoony sound effects play as his actions go on.
  • In-Series Nickname: Due to him working as Captain Pete's deckhand, Pete now calls him the "Boat-Boy King".
  • Keet
  • Perpetual Smiler
  • The Slacker: In regards to his duties as Captain Pete's deckhand.
  • Vague Age: He seems old enough to have a job, so he might be at least a teen at this point, but its still as confusing as his present day version's age.

Sally

"No, Sora. What really counts—-what's really special—-is the act of giving the gift. To wish deep in your heart to make someone else happy."
voiced by: Kath Soucie

A resident of Halloween Town and Jack Skellington's loved one, Sally is a stitched up doll-like being created by Dr. Finklestein. She has most people's best interests at heart, and has an innate ability to sense impending trouble.

  • Cassandra Truth: Its very sad in that every appearance she's had, she's pointed out that something bad is about to transpire, Jack disregards her thoughts on whatever it is, and unintentionally causes trouble.
  • Cute Monster Girl
  • Foil: The Experiment from II though not necessarily "evil", shares many similarities and contrasts to Sally. Sally is a normal-sized, well put together, and balanced because the Doc took great are in making her, which gave her a heart. The Experiment was also made by Finklestein, but it was mostly to get Lock, Shock, and Barrel off his back with a new playmate - and as such is Large, cobbled together with random parts, and is clunky with no heart for its own.
  • Fatal Flaw: She's extremely restless, but really, this being a flaw is more from Finklestein's point of view, as her going out and doing things has helped many times before.
  • Genre Savvy: In Chain of Memories, she acts on her bad feeling and takes the memory potion so that nothing bad happens.
  • Glasgow Grin
  • Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter
  • Team Mom: in her own way, she's so selfless in her actions that one could be forgiven for thinking that she's one of the Princesses of Heart in the first game before finding them all in Hollow Bastion. Goofy even states that she and Kairi share remarkable similarities.

Zero

"barks"
voice by: none

Jack's faithful ghostly dog, who usually hangs out in the graveyard. Cheerfully innocent, he's shown to have an innate ability to sniff out hiding Heartless.

Dr. Finklestein

"Our hearts are full of memoriesóbut not all of them reflect the truth. The heart isn't a recording device. Even important memories change with time. They warp or fade, leaving us with but a shadow of what we hoped to remember...(...)...It happens to everyone. Some memories grow ugly, and some become more beautiful. If we could recover our true memories, the world would seem completely different. So, I devised a potion from forget-me-nots that brings our true memories back."

voiced by: Jess Harnell

The resident Mad Scientist in Halloween Town with a flip-open head, Doctor Finklestein creates various things for Jack in preparation for Halloween. In the first game, he creates an artificial heart to control the Heartless better, which makes them go nuts. In Chain of Memories, he creates a memory potion which Sora and company have an interest in. In II he supports Jacks interest in Christmas and is creating a playmate for Lock, Shock, and Barrel.

  • Mad Scientist: He's not insane, but he is crazy enough to go along with Jack and not
  • Cool Old Guy: Particularly in Chain of Memories (what with his discussion in the quote above).
  • Genius Cripple
  • Gone Horribly Right: In Chain of Memories His potion doesn't fail, but the memories it unlocks drives Oogie insane with fear.
  • Insufferable Genius
  • Never My Fault: Never considers that its his designs that are flawed, and blames his assistants for bringing him insufficient parts.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Much of the conflicts in Halloween Town would've been avoided if he hadn't made failing experiments. Notably, his experiments have worked, its just that he never expects prepares for them to behave the way they do.
  • Overprotective Dad: Towards Sally

Lock, Shock, and Barrel

(inside Prison Keeper) "~ One, Two, Three, together as a team!~"

voiced by: (Lock) Jess Harnell, (Shock) Kath Soucie, (Barrel) Jeff Bennett

Three little Trick-Or-Treaters who work of Oogie Boogie in Halloween Town. Lock dresses as a devil, and is the leader, Shock dresses as a witch, is the only girl, and is the smartest of the three, and Barrel dresses as a skeleton and is often the butt of the other two's jokes.

  • Anti-Villain: They Just like pulling pranks to entertain themselves, and really only follow Oogie to achieve that end by seeing what he does and comes up with. They are absolutely terrified of Oogie himself as well as actual evil individuals like Maleficent.
  • Ambiguously Human
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Without their masks, they look exactly the same, if not even more like what they're dressed up as.
  • Bullying a Dragon: They continuously chuck pumpkin bombs at Roxas whenever he's about to leave from one of his Halloween Town missions from Organization 13. Eventually he catches on, dodges a bomb, and gives them a well-deserved beating.
  • Energy Ball: Shock gives the Prison Keeper the ability to fire purple energy in all directions.
  • Playing with Fire: When Lock is eaten by the Prison Keeper he gives it a large fireball attack.
  • Terrible Trio: well, not so terrible that they cross a Moral Event Horizon, but they are still rather rude to most people, however this seems to have died down somewhat as of II's return trip, as they are trying to help Dr. Finklestein with his experiment.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Lock, Shock, and Barrel's respective attacks are not exactly skillfull (respectively, a sliding kick, top-like spin, and a rolling attack) however one can easily lose track with everything going on and they can quickly knock you out if you aren't careful, especially in the first game, with the boss fight taking place in a very small area.
  • Quirky Mini Boss Squad.

The Mayor

"Now hear this, you...you things! Leave Halloween Town at once...by order of the mayor! Jack? Where are you? I'm only an elected official—-I can't handle this by myself."
voiced by: Jeff Bennett (K.H.), Glenn Shadix (K.H.2.)

The Mayor of Halloween Town, literally two-faced (depending on whichever mood he is currently in, his head switches to the appropriate face) The Mayor is constantly fretting over various things, leaving Jack as the actual one with authority.

  • Badass: similar to Scrooge, its more in spirit than in action, but he scolds invading Heartless, which takes cojones.
  • Mayor Pain: Not in the fact that he deliberately acts like a jerk to get his way, but aside from planning, whining, and kissing up to Jack, he's kind of useless.
  • Two-Faced: with two actual faces instead of one face half-and-halfed
