The Daughter of the Mahrajah, brought to Azad along with the relics of Time. She ends up fighting side to side with the Prince. Wields a bow.
The Prince's father, depicted as a just and merciful ruler. In the first game, he's turned into a monster by the sands and thus killed by his own son. In the third game, after his son has altered his original destiny, he is sadly killed by the Vizier.
The main villain of the first and third game, bent on using the powers of the Sands of Time in order to Take Over the World
. Specifically, in the third game he kills Kaileena and is mutated into a creature called Zurvan, the God of Time, but is eventually slain by the Prince
"!akahaD eht sepacse eno-oN !nellaf evah uoy erofeb emoc evah ohw llA"
A dark entity, whose task is to preserve the timeline. When the Prince used the sands of time to save his skin, the Dahaka awakened, and soon went after him to make sure that he was erased from the timeline.
A mysterious, half-naked woman in black who works for the Empress of Time and fights the Prince as he tries to reach the Island of Time.
Kaileena The Empress of Time
A beautiful and mysterious lady in red met on the island, who helps the Prince. She's actually the Empress of Time and believes killing the Prince will change her fate. Her destiny is to to die at the Prince's hands and upon her death release the Sands of Time into the world. In the true ending, the Prince manages to save them both from their fates and takes her with him.
In The Two Thrones
, the Vizier murders her in order to release the Sands in Babylon.
- Absolute Cleavage
- Action Girl
- Big Bad: Technically yes, but only in the basic ending.
- But Now I Must Go: In The Two Thrones, after killing Zurvan, she reappears, thanks the Prince, and decides to leave this world forever along with the Sands.
- Boobs of Steel: A little bit bustier than Shahdee, and definitely stronger.
- Damsel in Distress / Badass in Distress: When you first meet her, she's almost killed by Shahdee.
- Dual Wielding: Swords.
- Final Boss: In one of the endings.
- Ink-Suit Actor: In Warrior Within, she's based on and voiced by Monica Bellucci.
- Queen Incognito
- Lady in Red: In Warrior Within.
- Gold and White Are Divine: In The Two Thrones, when she heads to Babylon with the Prince before she gets captured and killed by the Vizier.
- Ms. Fanservice: Beautiful, buxom, scantly-dressed lady in red voiced by Monica Bellucci (and sound-alike actress Alicyn Packard)? Yup.
- No Body Left Behind: When she dies, the Sands are created from her body.
- Stripperiffic: The upper part of her outfit consists of two red strips over her boobs. Then there's a belt, and then four more strips covering her lady parts and butt.
- You Don't Look Like You: She looks very different in The Two Thrones.
A mysterious dark humanoid creature. It wears a strange mask and has seemingly has some interest in the Prince. Its intentions do not seem positive. It is later revealed to be the Prince wearing a mask capable of allowing two versions of himself to exist in the same timeline.
- Ambiguously Evil: Until you learn it's no more evil than the Prince is. Or any less.
- Cool Mask
- Dark Is Not Evil
- Death Faked for You / Faking the Dead: Arguably both, given what the mask did this for its former and current owner. In the case of the former, it allowed him to escape dying in the search for the sands. In the latter case of the Prince, it allows him to let the Dahaka take a victim and leave appeased.
- Future Me Scares Me: The Prince believes in this trope, at first, when he encounters the Sand Wraith a few times, once asking it who it is, and other times when he thinks it's trying to harm him, once by throwing an ax at him, until its demise at the hands of the Dahaka. Of course, he is unaware that the Wraith is actually his future self trying to warn him of his role in the sands; and that the reason his future self seemingly threw the ax at the Prince is that the former was trying to kill not the latter but actually the enemy coming up to attack him from behind (in other words, his future self saved the Prince's life). The only difference is that while the Dahaka killed the Prince's future self, the Prince later learns his lesson in becoming the Sand Wraith, and when he encounters his past self with the Dahaka, his quick thinking allows the Prince/Wraith to escape death and ensure that the Dahaka kills his past self instead.
- Necessary Fail: The first Sand Wraith was killed when he attempted to confront his former self but was surprised by the Dahaka, who was chasing down the Prince, and ended up eaten. When the Prince learns the Wraith was actually a future version of himself, he is able to learn from the first Wraith's demise. Knowing full well the Dahaka is about to arrive, he instead ensures his past self is taken. Without another version of himself dying in the attempt, he wouldn't have known how to succeed.
- Occult Blue Eyes
- Ret Gone: What the mask allows its wearers to do to their former selves.
- Temporal Paradox: This is the purpose and greatest power of the Wraith's mask. It allows an individual to inhabit the same timeline as a past version of their self, thus allowing them to kill them and replace them in the time stream. In essence, with the mask, you quite literally erase your former self's actions from history.
The Two Thrones
The Dark Prince
The evil side of the Prince, born from the infection of the Sands of Time. From time to time, he'll take over the Prince, forcing the character to play as him. The Dark Prince is ruthless, powerful, and sand-bound, but depletes health quickly when he's in charge. Uses the Daggertail as a weapon. Near the end of the game, the Prince finally manages to get rid of him and banish him for good.
- Ax-Crazy: Has absolutely no qualms about murdering and maiming everything in his way.
- Deadpan Snarker: Even more so than the real deal.
- Empowered Badass Normal: This'd be basically the Prince if he became a sand monster. Evil, but he'd retain his mind, albeit, twisted.
- Enemy Within
- Flaming Hair: Black Flames
- Glowing Eyes of Doom
- If I Had a Nickel: Use a similar utterance, only with "Sands", after killing Mahasti.
Dark Prince: "Oh, wait... (absorb the Sands from Mahasti) I Do!"
- Not So Different:
Dark Prince: "If I am selfish, Prince, it is because you are. If I am ruthless and reckless and lacking in morals, it is because you are! I did not spin myself out of the ether; I was not conjured by some mad Vizier. I am you!"
- The Other Darrin: Michael Rudder in the second game, Rick Miller in the third.
- Power Tattoo: Shining yellow tattoos all over his body.
- Post Final Boss: In the third game and, by extension, the saga as a whole, since he's technically the final enemy the Prince faces. After Zurvan is defeated, the very last section of the game mainly serves to conclude the trilogy. It involves chasing the Dark Prince down inside a mental realm, which includes areas from the previous two games, and attacking him along the way (though, he doesn't fight back). At the end, when you face him, the only way to beat him is to walk away.
- Sheathe Your Sword: The only way to beat him.
- Superpowered Evil Side: Relies on much more brute force than the Prince.
- This Cannot Be!: Is genuinely shocked when the Prince's willpower alone sealed him.
- Variable-Length Chain: Daggertail.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Water will force him back like any other Sand monster.
- Whip It Good/Whip Sword: Daggertail.
