    Fasir 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fasir_3291.jpg
Voiced by: Ed Gilbert

An enigmatic prophet and mystic who travels the streets of Agrabah, sometimes approaching Aladdin when he senses a need for Aladdin's services to fight the forces of evil.


  • Ambiguously Human: He and his brother are both powerfully magical humanoids with a single eye each, and his brother was, like a common cyclops, a massive giant.
  • Big Good: The episodes that pair him with Mirage establish him as this: a mystic force for good whose mission it is to counter her great evil wherever he can, usually by guiding the main characters towards their destinies. It was also shown that he and Mirage used to be in love, and believes there's still good in her.
  • Blind Seer: His blindness could be a facade to hide his cyclopic eye, though it's never actually made clear.
  • Cain and Abel: With his brother Fashum.
  • The Chessmaster: He's very good at pulling strings to ensure that things turn out how he wants them. Fortunately for Agrabah and the rest of the world, he's on the side of good.
  • Cool Old Guy: The closest thing to being the Good Counterpart Jafar.
  • Creepy Monotone: Tends to speak like this, even when he's dramatically ranting.
  • Cyclops: He is actually one, having long ago defeated his bigger, more malevolent brother Fashoom.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: He starts out rather ambiguous about which side he's on, especially when revealed to be a cyclops.
  • Herald: For various mystical disasters. Except he shows up specifically to warn Aladdin and his friends so they can prevent them from happening, or at least fix them up.
  • Hero of Another Story: Fasir has had quite the adventurous life, and sometimes the heroes chance upon the tail end of his exploits: in his youth, he battled his titanic brother Fashoom for the fate of the world and won, sealing him in stone for hundreds of years. He also apparently matches morality with Mirage on a regular basis, though he often needs to involve the heroes in order to actually stop her plots.
  • Knight of Cerebus: An odd example since he's actually a good guy, but the episodes where he appears tend to be more on the serious side — even "Do the Rat Thing", a mostly comedic episode, becomes rather serious and alarming for the brief scene where he shows up.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Occasionally, but it's with good intentions.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: When it's revealed that he's a cyclops.
  • Mysterious Past: Let's face it, anyone else like to know what Fasir's life was like with Mirage?
  • Noodle Incident: As part of his mysterious past. At the end of "Eye Of The Beholder" Fasir briefly implies that he and Mirage had some kind of romantic relationship, before something twisted her to evil. This is never brought up again.
  • Our Giants Are Different: He is a Cyclops but is unusually human sized, in contrast to his evil brother Fashoom who was not only the traditional size but blue skinned.
  • Simple Staff: He's always seen carrying a staff, ostensibly because he's blind, in reality because it's his Magic Staff.
  • Stealth Hi/Bye: He sneaks up to Aladdin and the others when they've least expected.
  • Stealth Mentor: Often appears out of nowhere to give Aladdin and his friends advice.
  • Trickster Mentor: He tends to use hints, guile and manipulation to get Aladdin involved in heroism or to provide vital clues, rather than straightforwardly
  • Wizard Beard: Sports a classy waist-length, neatly groomed gray beard.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Doubly Subverted. As he says himself, appearances can be deceiving.

    Dhandi 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_inline_nm16fv30q41rpu8n7_500_0.jpg
Voiced by: Debi Derryberry

A young, orphaned street urchin girl who manages to find a bottle containing a female genie, named Eden, who becomes her surrogate family.


  • Adorably Precocious Child: Sits somewhere between here and Wise Beyond Their Years. She does make a few childish errors — for example, her first wish for Eden due to being hungry is for one sandwich — but, overall, she's surprisingly savvy. She figures out Genie is hanging around because he has a crush on Eden before Eden does, she manages to give Abis Mal quite a runaround originally, and generally she's surprisingly level-headed.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Most likely due to Barefoot Poverty like other street rats, but even after getting a genie she never asks for footwear.
  • Nice Girl: Kind, caring, unselfish, thoughtful, nice, and gentle.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Accidentally wishes for Eden to stay with her forever when she had originally meant to free her so that she and Genie could be together. She's deeply upset about it, but the genies both take it in stride; when you're immortal, a human lifespan isn't that long a wait, and besides, Dhandi needs Eden's protection.
  • Shipper on Deck: Dhandi is this for Eden and Genie.
    Eden: (after Genie first asks her out) I'd love to see you sometime... But I can't. You know how it is. New master and all... I'm a career girl.
    Dhandi: She'll see you tonight, eight-ish.
    Eden: ...What she said.

    Eden 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eden_genie_8094.jpg
Voiced by: Debi Derryberry

A female genie uncovered by a young street urchin girl named Dhandi, who becomes Genie's girlfriend.


  • Badass Adorable: Has the same powers as Genie with the bubbly personality to boot.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Only wears a top.
  • Benevolent Genie: To her master Dhandi, whose wishes she grants with very generous interpretations because she knows that she's a good person. Cemented in her first few minutes on-screen, when she talks Dhandi out of wasting the first of her Three Wishes on one measly sandwich and instead wishing for an endless supply of food by coaxing her to say "I wish to never go hungry again for the rest of my life".
  • Cool Big Sis: For Dhandi, her current master.
  • Distaff Counterpart: To Genie, makes constant pop culture references and almost shares the same personality. Like Genie, she befriended her last master.
  • Fairy Sexy: Well, genie rather than fairy, but she otherwise fits the trope, being a female magical being specifically designed to be visually appealing.
  • Fog Feet: As per being a genie, this is Eden’s mode of flying when she hasn’t made legs for walking.
  • Genki Girl: She's always chipper and upbeat, though when she does get mad... watch out.
  • Hartman Hips: Since, like Genie, she tends to trail off below the waist, but she's female, she's given an impressive set of hips to raise her visual appeal.
  • Jackass Genie: Purposely does this when Abis Mal steals her bottle and enslaves her.
  • Literal Genie: To Abis Mal, whose wishes she corrupts because she knows that he's a villain.
  • Loophole Abuse: Abis Mal wishes for Eden to seal away Genie to the deepest ocean floor. She does so. However, she left Genie a message on his answering machine...
    Eden: It's me, Eden. Exit's down the hall to your right. Abis Mal may have said ocean floor, but he didn't say forever.
  • Love Interest: For Genie; though she doesn't appear often, she's given enough independent characterization to avoid falling into the role of Satellite Love Interest.
  • Mama Bear: Do not harm a hair on Dhandi's head.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: She's named after Barbara Eden, the star of the series I Dream of Jeannie, who is also a genie of a bottle.
  • Parental Substitute: While she is more of a surrogate Cool Big Sis to Dhandi, Eden also acts a mother figure to the girl.
  • Reality Warper: She is a genie after all.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: On her date with Genie.
  • Shout-Out: To Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie. Both are female genies of a bottle. There's also Jeannie being played by Barbara Eden.
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss: In contrast to Genie, for whom it's a case of Love at First Sight, Eden initially fights with Genie, mistaking him for some sort of "master rustler" out to steal Dhandi out from under Eden's nose. It's only after they clear up that Genie's hanging around to flirt with Eden that she becomes interested.
  • Take Me Instead: When Mozenrath imprisons Genie and siphons off his magic, Eden offers herself to free him. He accepts the terms and imprisons Eden. Unfortunately, Mozenrath lied about freeing Genie and siphons off the both of them.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Messing with Genie is one major mistake you can do.
  • Women Are Wiser: Zigzagged. On the one hand, she can be just as big a goofball as Genie himself, to the point she initially thinks he's out to steal Dhandi from her. On the other hand, she generally uses her powers more effectively than Genie does, and finds way to work around the wishes of masters she hates, whereas Genie is so used to being straightforward with his masters that he reluctantly obeys even masters he hates.

    Queen Thundra 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thundra_4298.jpg
Voiced by: Candi Milo

A powerful bird spirit or deity who rules over a rainforest far from Agrabah. Thundra is the goddess of the rains, responsible for controlling all rainclouds and thunderclouds.


    Sadira 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sadiratitle.png
Voiced by: Kellie Martin

A street rat who fell in love with Aladdin after he helped her out of a jam. Unfortunately for her, he not only already had a fiancée, but she was the Princess. She ends up falling in with a group of Sand Witches to find a way of evening the odds. Eventually, she manages to befriend her rival and gets over Aladdin.


  • Action Girl: When ever she's an ally or a enemy, she's capable with or without casting spells.
  • Adorkable: She maybe able to cast magic spells, but it's hard not to like her charm.
  • Anti-Villain: Type I or II - she has no villainous traits, but she's willing to go to extremes to try and get what she wants, only to be ultimately crippled by her own conscience and unwillingness to seriously hurt anyone (Jasmine included), which causes her to foil her own plans/allies when they get too dangerous.
    • In other words; When all is said and done; Sadira is only a villain in the loosest sense of the word. While it's true, she has tried to use her magic to try and make Aladdin her's and/or remove Jasmine as an obstacle, she bears no malice towards them or their friends, not even Jasmine (she never wanted Jasmine harmed or killed, she just wanted Aladdin to love her instead of Jasmine).
  • Badass Adorable: Attractive? Check! Wanting to have friends? Check! Able to cast powerful spells? Double check!
  • Badass Longrobe: On occasion she dresses up like this.
  • Batman Gambit: After being framed by the Sand Witches, she pretends to join them in order to stop them.
  • Birds of a Feather: To Aladdin. Before finding the lair of the Sand Witches, she was essentially a female version of Aladdin - especially of how he was before he met Jasmine. This is one of the reasons she thinks they're meant to be together.
  • The Cameo: At Aladdin's wedding, as one of the guests.
  • Cute Witch: She is a sorceress and cute, what's more to say?
  • Dark Magical Girl: She's a foil for Jasmine as a strong willed and ambitious young woman whose in love with Aladdin but she's the heir to magical power instead of political. Ultimately she does a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Determinator: She was unrelenting in her quest to win Aladdin's heart, even if she never succeeded.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Her spells involve using sand a lot.
  • Distaff Counterpart: To Aladdin. Their similarities is part of why she felt they belonged together.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Like Aladdin, she too usually goes barefoot, probably due to Barefoot Poverty.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She doesn't like how Jasmine is the one Aladdin likes.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: She's not really a bad person: she doesn't want to hurt anybody (not even Jasmine), she just wants Aladdin to love her. As a result, she tends to go from evil when trying to steal away Aladdin to good when her plans put people in jeopardy, several times an episode - and end with her being friendly with the heroes yet finding some other ancient magic to use instead.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Particularly towards Aladdin.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: In a few of her appearances, especially the first. Though she commands great power, she's still in training and doesn't always really know what to do with it. Most of her plans end up spiraling out of her control and can be more of a threat to her than to her enemies. Her getting bailed out of her own messes by the heroes is fairly common. What's more, her finally getting a handle on her abilities coincides with her making a permanent Heel–Face Turn.
  • Lethal Chef: He cooking skills are rather lacking to say the least, one episode involves her accidentally pouring a magical potion to her dishes one time. To be fair, the recipe scroll got knocked aside and replaced with a potion scroll when she wasn’t looking.
  • Love at First Sight: Was instantly smitten with Aladdin when he saves her. Too bad he’s taken.
  • Lovable Rogue: Which is why Aladdin and the others are civil towards her most of the time.
  • Master of Unlocking: Since she was five years old.
  • Nice Hat: In her princess ensemble.
  • No Social Skills: Just like Aladdin, mainly because she has been alone on the streets since she was young.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: During her princess-fantasy.
  • Princesses Prefer Pink: When she became a princess in her fantasy.
  • Reformed, but Rejected: It doesn't last, though.
  • The Rival: To Jasmine while she's willing to work with temporarily whenever she or Aladdin is in danger..
  • Shadow Archetype:
    • To Jasmine. She and Jasmine both love Aladdin, but unlike Jasmine, Sadira isn't afraid of using unethical ways to prove it.
    • She's also arguably one to Aladdin himself, being a street rat who unknowingly comes across a source of magic and later tries to use it to win the heart of another.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: The contrast from her normal street rat attire to European princess is stunning.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: With Aladdin.
  • Stalker with a Crush: To Aladdin initially, but they eventually become Just Friends as she had to accept that Aladdin loves Jasmine and not her.
  • Thinks Like a Romance Novel: She does, which is one of the things that makes her so dangerous. She doesn't want to hurt anyone, she just wants her Happy Ending... no matter how she gets it.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Jasmine's girly girl.
  • Unkempt Beauty: Even as a street rat, she's still rather attractive.
  • Wild Card: Since she's not exactly an evil person at heart, but she is willing to go to extremes for her own goals, she tends to screw things up for everyone. Including herself or her latest villainous ally.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Especially by her last appearance.

    The Wizard Pharaoh Very Ankh-Amman 
Voiced by: Corey Burton

    Prince Uncouthma 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tsf041.jpg
Voiced by: Tino Insana

Prince Uncouthma is the large and powerful, somewhat dimwitted yet goodhearted and friendly ruler of the northern barbarian kingdom of Odiferous, a strange land that prizes strength and alarmingly fragrant odors, most notedly in its Trademark Favorite Food; yak milk-based cheeses. Initially an aspiring suitor for Princess Jasmine, he eventually settles down with his own bride, an Odiferan woman named Brawnhilda.


  • Amazon Chaser: Part of what attracts him to Brawnhilda is her massive strength and powerful build.
  • Big Eater: Like many of his fellow Odiferans, he loves to stuff his face or to stuffing his sorrows.
  • Big Fun: Barrel-chested and roundbellied, but also jolly, friendly and compassionate.
  • Dumb Muscle: He's not a particularly smart fellow, though not quite as dumb as some characters on this show, but he's certainly plenty strong.
  • Funny Foreigner: He's built around the bizarre antics and customs of his culture, like its reverence for strong, nasty-smelling cheeses.
  • Gentle Giant: Huge and powerful, but also friendly and prefers to talk and make friends rather than fight.
  • Ironic Name: Despite his name, if one takes into account his Funny Foreigner status, he's actually a very polite, mild-mannered, friendly, understanding and decent guy. It's just that his barbarian customs are rather unusual for Agrabanians.
  • Prince Charmless: Averted. He's not a traditional Prince Charming either, but unlike any other suitor who came Jasmine's way, he's a fun, lovable guy.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: He's from a barbarian kingdom where to his people, fighting is everything.
  • Punny Name: Uncouthma = uncouth, and Odiferous = a play on words basically meaning "full of odors", referencing the kingdom's legendary stench of yaks, onions, mold, mildew, moss and dubious cheeses.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Zigzagged, at first, he challenges Aladdin to a duel after Brawnhilda rejected him during the wedding episode. Although it's mostly because he mistook Jasmine's advice to fight for his beloved. But later on, he was willing to listen to Aladdin's side of the story when Nefir tricked him and his people into war with Agrabah.
  • Stout Strength: Beer-bellied but incredibly strong.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: It's somewhat obscured by his prominent belly, but his upper half is a lot larger than his lower half.

    The Uncanny Isabella 

Isabella: (sighs) A world full of wishes before me. And I allowed myself to be used until I had nothing left!

A master magician who only appeared in a two issue Aladdin comic presenting an alternate version of The Return of Jafar. Isabella is similar in appearance to Jafar (except his clothing is green) and has the 'fortune' to be his last master. He uses his third wish to trap Jafar and Iago in the lamp again, sending them back to the cave. Due to persuasion by the Genie, the Sultan hires Isabella to a permanent entertainment job at the palace.


  • Canon Foreigner: Only appeared in the non-canon comic sequel "The Return of Aladdin".
  • The Dog Bites Back: After many insults and orders from the evil genie, he uses his last wish to return him and Iago to the Cave of Wonders.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Isabella? Really? And that is neither a pun like some of the names of characters in the TV Series or an arab name for a male person. note 
  • Good Counterpart: More like 'less evil, clever and greedy' counterpart to Jafar. The magician doesn't seems to have ill feelings towards the Sultan, the princess or the others, is used all the time by the evil genie and in the end he saves Aladdin and co. using his last wish.
  • Identical Stranger: Identical to Jafar.
  • Light Is Not Good: He wears green clothes, but is allies with Jafar and Iago...until he discovers they were only using him.
  • Pull a Rabbit out of My Hat: Inverted. At some point, Genie (with the face of a rabbit) mocks Isabella by using his powers to pull him out of a magician hat.
  • Smug Smiler: Courtesy of being a 'duplicate' of Jafar.
  • Stage Magician: A Middle Eastern magician who brings entertainment to the Sultan aparently for money.
  • The Stoic: He has the same amount of calm and seriousness that the ex-vizier had in the first movie (but without his crazy tendencies.)
    • Not So Stoic: However... he gets scared when the evil genie appears for the first time and threatens him moments later.
  • You Look Familiar: In issue #2, Iago is surprised when he sees him for the first time. Averted for some reason with Aladdin and co.

Antagonists

    Abis Mal 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/abis_mal_1563.jpg
Voiced by: Jason Alexander

The leader of a gang of bandits, Abis Mal is big on ambition and ego, but short on skill, talents, charms and wits. He first appears in The Return of Jafar, where he becomes Jafar's unwilling sidekick after accidentally recovering the evil genie's lamp from a desert well. He later becomes a recurring antagonist during the animated series, constantly striving with the aide of his sole minion, Haroud Hazi Bin, to defeat Aladdin and become disgustingly wealthy.


  • Bad Boss: Not only in the usual sense of being willing to dispatch or dispose of his minions (he mentions that he executes them if they fail him in the first episode of the series), but also in the sense of being a rotten and totally incompetent guy to work under. He's rude, arrogant, demanding and takes most of the wealth and all of the credit for himself, whenever that's possible.
  • Baldness Angst: One of the things he resents Aladdin for is Aladdin's nice, thick head of hair.
  • Beard of Evil: More like a unshaven stubble.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Yes, he's an idiot. He's also surprisingly adept at finding and unleashing various magical trinkets and beings to serve his cause, and he's highly ruthless. In the first episode, he reveals he's turned someone inside out once, and he plans on doing the same to Aladdin.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: He tries, oh how he tries, but he's just not good enough to get there. For example, Abis Mal tried to have a smoke monster steal for him, only to turn on him later, and then brainwashed Jasmine to usurp the throne of Agrabah, only for her to usurp him and take the throne.
  • Bumbling Sidekick: In The Return of Jafar, when he is recruited by Jafar to help enact the vizier-sorcerer's plans of revenge. Abis Mal screws up a lot of times and he directly contrasts to Jafar - whereas Abis Mal is bumbling, submissive, and a wannabe, Jafar is ruthlessly cunning.
  • Butt-Monkey: Listing all the times when he's the butt of the jokes will be alot.
  • Did Not Think This Through: Upon his introduction in The Return of Jafar, his first act as a bandit chief, after a successful heist, is to demand that his minions give him all the loot. Not only was he surprised that they angrily resented it, but when those minions angrily questioned him regarding his reasoning, rather than list any of the numerous perfectly sound justifications he could have mentioned (the fact that he provided them clothes, weapons, the hideout, and the plan that lead to the heist, for starters), he responds with a weak "because I'm the leader?" If Aladdin hadn't chosen that particular moment to swoop in on Carpet and seize the loot, thus momentarily drawing their ire, Abis Mal would have been literally torn apart.
  • The Dragon: To Jafar in the second movie.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: The guy is an idiot but he has a lot of vision, which ultimately leads to him constantly seeking out powerful evil beings to help him rule Agrabah, without ever learning his lesson about how they should never be trusted. Most of his episodes in the series (and the movie) involve him being usurped and nearly killed by a Sealed Evil in a Can.
  • Fat Bastard: Is overweight and villainous.
  • Fat Idiot: An overweight, dimwitted Manchild.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: When he has minions. In the second movie, he's the leader of a group of bandits who hate him for being a Pointy-Haired Boss and were also planning to kill him.
  • Glad I Thought of It: Whenever Haroud Hazi Bin comes up with a clever idea or scheme, Abis Mal is quick to claim it was his idea.
  • Identical Grandson: Of Abnor Mal.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: It's not that he isn't a threat, but his own stupidity usually ends up causing his plans to backfire on him.
  • Large and in Charge: Temporarily, after he steals Eden's bottle and wishes for her to turn him into a giant. Otherwise he is only large only as far as girth is concerned.
  • Large Ham: Easily one of Alexander's most over-the-top roles.
  • Manchild: Constantly whines when nothing goes his way, so most of the time. Jumps to Psychopathic Man Child when you consider his thievery and his willingness to hurt people — in the first episode, it's revealed he's actually used a "Turn People Inside-Out" spell once in the past, although remembering the result still gives him nightmares.
  • Meaningful Name: "Abysmal" as in terrible at everything he does.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: He certainly seems to subscribe to this philosophy.
  • The Napoleon: Small, rotund, aggressively ambitious and anxious to prove his worth.
  • Nice Hat: Obsessed with them. Abis Mal dreams of being Sultan one day, but not so much out of a desire for power (though it is a definite plus). He wants to be Sultan due to his bizarre obsession with hats; Abis Mal's hat craze is played upon greatly in the series and he envies the Sultan for having a bigger hat than he does and shows maniacal glee whenever he succeeds in donning the Sultan's hat.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Even if they are few, he does have his moments. The guy is actually very good at tracking down powerful magical items and beings, and on the rare occasion that they don't betray him… watch out!
  • Perma-Stubble: Just look at his image and imagine him shaved.
  • Pointy-Haired Boss: He's a total incompetent bungler, so, naturally, he's a terrible leader when he has minions.
  • Punny Name: Cringeworthy — "Abysmal". Also counts as a Meaningful Name given his ineptitude.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: He eagerly goes along with Jafar's plans for the chance of getting his revenge on Aladdin, as well as his riches. Not that it ever, ever works.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He's thinks he's a master of planning and a genius leader but it's obvious Haroud is the more competent one.
  • Smug Snake: It's extremely difficult to consider him a genuinely threatening villain; his flunkies show little to no loyalty or respect towards him, a lot of his plans are flawed and doomed to fail from the beginning; hence his constant failures.
  • Would Hurt a Child: "Put kids in jeopardy? … I like it, Haroud!"
  • You Have Failed Me: It's said in one early episode that he beheads those who fail him. Haroud warns him about doing this, but to no avail, as it tends to just be the two of them after that.

    Haroud Hazi Bin 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cbtt068.jpg
Voiced by: James Avery

Unique to the animated series, Haroud is Abis Mal's one and only minion, reluctantly following his bumbling master through the desert, aiding in his schemes and trying to keep him from doing anything too stupid. Needless to say, it's a full-time job.


  • Affably Evil: He's Abis Mal's more competent lackey and is more professional enough to have a polite appearance unlike his boss.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: It isn't easy working for Abis Mal. Somewhat subverted in that, many a time, Haroud is able to trick Abis Mal into doing the things he just ordered Haroud to do.
  • Black Best Friend: Well, the closest Abis Mal has to a friend, anyway.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Why do all the hard work yourself when you can trick your boss into doing it?
  • Deadpan Snarker: Whenever he's not scheming things, he often snarks to Abis Mal.
  • Evil Genius: Especially compared to Abis Mal. Haroud always comes up with the best plans, while Abis Mal is an ineffectual idiot despite being the leader of their gang.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Thanks to James Avery.
  • Face Palm: Whenever Abis Mal does something stupid, which is most times often.
  • Gag Lips: The guy seriously looks like he's constantly making "duck lips".
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Is obviously the true brains of the bunch.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: Unlike Abis Mal, he knows when it gets too dangerous for them.
  • Lean and Mean: In contrast to his criminal boss, who's fat and short.
  • Nice Hat: Just like his boss, though he doesn't share the same obsession as Abis Mal.
  • Punny Name: Really?! Haroud Hazi Bin ("How rude has he been?") and Abis Mal ("Abysmal")
  • Servile Snarker: Serves Abis Mal while making sarcastic comments with him not knowing any wiser.
  • Straight Man: To Abis Mal's Large Ham.
  • The Starscream: Forget Me Lots was the one time he got tired of his boss's incompetence that he sided with an amnesic Jasmine to overthrow him and send Abis Mal to the dungeon.

    Amin Damoola 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/amin_damoola_7737.jpg
Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

One of the many thieves who stalk the streets of Agrabah, Amin Damoola is notorious throughout the city and amongst his fellow thieves… as the absolute worst thief in all of Agrabah. He is so clumsy that he has been unanimously proclaimed "Butterfingers" by them, eliciting laughter and jeers from his constant bumbling. His burning desire is to prove he is not the worst thief and thusly become incredibly wealthy, which leads him to clashing with Aladdin several times.


    Mechanikles 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mechanikles2_854.jpg
Voiced by: Charlie Adler

A brilliant and utterly insane Mad Scientist exiled from Greece, Mechanikles seeks to use his inventive genius to create devices with which to fulfill his various schemes, predominantly focusing on conquest of the world or exerting an orderly influence. An obsessive-compulsive with a fixation on cleanliness and neatness, Mechanikles is prone to hysterically manic fits but never loses his head and so always manages to get away.


  • Ancient Grome: Toga? check...Laurel wreathes? check...
  • Animal Motifs: He has a big insect-theme going on with his robots.
  • Beard of Evil: Dons an impressive, rectangular shaped one.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Mechanikles seems funny, with his obsessiveness to detail and his hysterical antics, but he can build machines that are a genuine danger and he always has a backup plan to get away. Some of his master plans include trying to turn the Seven Deserts into glass because he liked how clean glass was, steam clean the Earth by boiling the Earth's oceans, and destroy the Thundra's rainforest to get rid of its filth. All of which would have ended in mass human genocide or complete omnicide if he succeeded, which he was aware of and did not care about.
  • Clock King: An inventor of many Clock Punk machines.
  • Clocks of Control: He's a Mad Scientist who specializes in building clockwork machines, and he suffers from Super OCD.
  • Ditzy Genius: He's a total lunatic, but really quite brilliant. He's also fixated on pursuing his goals with a total disregard for any suffering he may cause, be it leveling villages to conquer the inhabitants or burning the entire desert to melt the sand into glass.
    "The Greatest of the Great Greek Geniuses!"
  • Evil Laugh: He usually starts coughing in the middle of it.
  • Fatal Flaw: If it hadn't been for his Super OCD, he would've conquered the world.
  • Gag Nose: He has the largest nose of Aladdin's Rogues Gallery, probably as part of his Ancient Grome motif (Romans being famous for their large noses).
  • High-Class Glass: It's actually some sort of telescoping microscope that acts a monocle, or perhaps a prosthetic eye.
  • Humongous Mecha: He builds insectoid ones to use as his minions.
  • Large Ham: Rivals Abis Mal in terms of over-dramatic reactions.
  • Laughably Evil: Although he's competent and dangerous, it's impossible not to smile at his quirks.
  • Mad Scientist: He invents machines that are genuinely threatening and is out of his mind.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: When he realized destroying Thundra's rainforest would kill all life on the planet, he shrugged and decided that people are pigs who need to die so the planet can be "clean".
  • Neat Freak: He absolutely hates things are messy, and frequently freaks out over things like oil spills or wrinkles in his tunic. One of his earliest plans is to melt all the deserts into glass simply because glass, which is smooth and even, is so dear to him.
  • Obsessed Are The List Makers: He has a checklist with items like "Do dishes, do laundry, conquer world". The heroes even comment: "Boy, is he serious". Later, he adds "Destroy Aladdin" to the list, and wonders to himself whether he should do the dishes before or after he conquers the world.
  • Order Is Not Good: Mechanikles is willing to kill all life on the planet in order to make the world more orderly and clean. Even when this is pointed out, he still thinks killing everybody else is worth it to make the world more organized.
  • Order vs. Chaos: Mechanikles' entire world-view centers on his efforts to defeat the chaos that abounds in the world around him.
  • Robot Master: His minions are always clockwork robots he creates to support his schemes.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": As there is no official word on how to spell his name, several different spellings are used by fans.
  • Super OCD: He lists everything, no matter how trivial, on a schedule.
    • Also, most of his plans build out of his obsession with order or cleanliness, such as melting the desert into glass because it's neater or boiling the ocean to steam-clean the world.
    • This is also how he is beaten in his debut episode- the heroes just make as much a mess as possible in his evil lair until they can find the Genie and Carpet and rescue them from his clutches, and he's too distracted trying to tidy up everyones mess to stop them.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: He always has a backup plan to escape and always succeeds.

    Ayam Aghoul 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aghoul_7406.jpg
Voiced by: Hamilton Camp

An undead sorcerer and the self-proclaimed "Duke of the Undead." After his attempt to make Jasmine his bride was thwarted by Aladdin, he attempts time and time again to banish Aladdin and his friends to the Netherworld as payback, only to always end up trapped there himself.


  • Affably Evil: Often acts friendly to his foes, even if he does force Jasmine into becoming his wife.
  • Alliterative Name: Ayam Aghoul.
  • And Now You Must Marry Me: His entire M.O. before he met Aladdin was to trick a woman into wearing a cursed necklace and then take said woman as his bride, moving on to another when the woman died.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's quite a sarcastic fellow, often making quips regarding to his undead status ("In living color," "In the flesh, so to speak," etc.)
  • Evil Is Hammy: He's quite funny despite being an threatening undead sorcerer.
  • Hell Hound: Owns one in one episode, a nasty, reptilian-looking mutt by the name of... Joel.
  • Our Liches Are Different: He's supposed to be a case of Our Ghouls Are Creepier, but he fits this trope better, being an undead sorcerer who spends most of his time trapped in the Netherworld.
  • Living Shadow: Ayam's latest scheme was to create a shadow version of himself to commit his crimes in the living world. Shadow Ayam also has the ability to bring to life other shadows to use as his minions, which he succeeded in taking those of the Aladdin cast.
  • Made of Explodium: His favorite means of attack is chucking explosive skulls.
  • Plague Master: After being accidentally freed by Iago in "Sea No Evil", he giddily contemplates the idea of sending in a swarm of locusts and a few blood worms toward Agrabah's direction.
  • Punny Name: "I am a ghoul."
  • Revenge by Proxy: When Iago and Abu ended up stranded in the Netherworld in the episode, "As the Netherworld Turns", Ayam spent most of the episode chasing them around in utter glee, despite them playing little part in his previous defeat at Aladdin and Genie's hands.
  • Sinister Scythe: Sometimes summons one as a quick weapon.

    Mozenrath 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mozenrath_6064.jpg
Voiced by: Jonathan Brandis, Jeff Bennett (Black Sand)

A malevolent and powerful young sorcerer who rules the Land of Black Sand, having taken over from the former ruler, the Evil Sorcerer Destane. Ever greedy for more power, he often butts heads against Aladdin as a result. Being the most competent and iconic villain of the series, he was considered to be the antagonist of the third movie of the trilogy, and if rumors are to be believed, to be revealed as Aladdin's long lost brother.


  • Agent Peacock: He's a sarcastic pretty boy who always greets his enemies in a mockingly friendly or outright flirty tone of voice, yet one of the most competent villains of the series.
  • Arch-Enemy: As far as the series goes, he's the most recurring serious enemy of Aladdin and friends (discounting the likes of Abis Mal, who is too bumbling to count), and an excellent foil to Aladdin in being roughly the same age yet polar opposite in personality and abilities.
  • Ambition Is Evil: He's no stranger to making personal sacrifices in order to become more powerful.
  • Artifact of Death: His gauntlet, the source of his power, burns up his life force in exchange for his magic.
  • Bad Boss: Overworks the sprites to the point they’re falling out of the air from exhaustion, has a We Have Reserves mentality towards his Mamluks, and beats up Xerxes whenever he’s in a bad mood.
  • Badass Arm-Fold: For such a textbook Squishy Wizard, he's capable of performing some pretty impressive physical feats, like going toe-to-toe with Aladdin, and climbing back up a cliff after being kicked down from it. And he performs this gesture whenever he's in a cocky mood, and does it with style.
  • Badass Bookworm: When he's not out there fighting the heroes himself, he's often found in his lab, studying about new spells, artifacts or creatures to make himself more powerful.
    Genie: This Mozenrath kid sure did his homework.
  • Badass Longrobe: His standard outfit includes this, as you'd expect from the primary Evil Sorcerer of the series.
  • Bastard Understudy: The little backstory that is known about him boils down to overthrowing Destane and taking his power for himself.
  • Body Horror: Under his gauntlet, his right hand is nothing but bones. However, he can still manipulate the limb normally.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: He's quite fond of just leaving Aladdin and co. at the mercy of one of his Death Traps rather than taking them down himself. It's a justified case though, since his traps are actually very effective.
  • Cast From Life Span: His gauntlet grants him magical power at the cost of his life force.
  • The Chessmaster: Among the most successful ones in the series. He spends one episode just sitting on his throne, and it still doesn't end in a complete loss for him.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder:
    "Is it my fault that you are so trusting?"
  • Classic Villain: Pride and Envy.
  • Composite Character: He has the cunning, wit, youth, and quick thinking of Aladdin, and the same cruelty, power-hunger, and magical potential as Jafar, with Iago even declaring him to be "Jafar Jr."
  • Dark Is Evil: Wears black clothes, his magic resembles shadows, and he is evil.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He dishes out snark as often as magic.
    "You were in my kingdom and you didn't look me up? I'm hurt."
    "Oh, should I tremble at the painted toes of her dainty little feet?! I don't think so!"
  • Determinator: His refusal to give up rivals that of Aladdin.
    "When I want something, I get it."
  • Elemental Powers:
  • Evil Counterpart: He's a young and ruthless Evil Overlord with a lust for power, which contrasts Aladdin's insecurities about one day becoming a sultan and all the responsibilities that will force upon him. Just like Aladdin, he's also very cunning, possesses a sharp wit and refuses to give up if there's any chance for him to win. While Mozenrath tends to be more calm and calculating than his heroic counterpart, they both share a natural talent for mind-games and trickery. Also, when things don't go their way, their youthful impatience sometimes gets the better of them, but they're also equally good at improvising and learning from their old mistakes. Finally, they're always accompanied by their faithful animal companions, who always remains on their respective master's side. No wonder the showrunners supposedly considered making the two of them brothers who were Separated at Birth.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: His first meeting with Aladdin says it all:
    "You'd risk your life for others, but not for gold?!"
    • It's more of a subversion though, as he's smart enough to quickly learn from that encounter, and every attempt to manipulate Aladdin afterwards went much more smoothly.
  • Eviler Than Thou: He ends up on both sides of this at different times in the series; he proved to be the greater evil against Destane, but the lesser evil against Khartoum.
  • Evil Genius: He's gotten the closest to actually defeating Aladdin, not just because of his power, but simply being one of the few villains who can match him intellectually.
  • Evil Plan: Gaining more power for himself; he's made several passes at Genie's through various means.
  • Evil Sorcerer: The jury is still out on what is darker; his magic or his heart.
  • Exactly What I Aimed At: In one episode:
    Aladdin: Pretty sad shot, Mozenrath.
    Mozenrath: (smirks) Depends on what I was aiming at.
    (Artifact of Doom activates)
  • Fascinating Eyebrow: One of his standard expressions.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He's an incredibly dark and ruthless young man, always ready with a smug smile and a mocking comment, yet enough of a smooth-talking mastermind to let him get away with it.
  • Foil: He's the opposite of Aladdin in many ways — Aladdin wears street clothes, is tanned, and relies on his physical abilities to outwit the enemy. Mozenrath wears fancy clothes befitting a mage, is pale, and relies on magic and arcane knowledge to overpower his opposition.
  • Grand Theft Me: His ultimate plan for Aladdin.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: He hates Aladdin for being just as powerful as he, but without making any of the sacrifices he did.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: Part of why he hates Aladdin so much; he had to make many harsh sacrifices to get where he is now, while Aladdin, as he put it, "got the magic of a Genie on a silver platter."
  • I Gave My Word: Mostly when it serves his interests, but when he makes a deal with someone as part of his plans, he graciously rewards those he makes deals with when they play their part.
  • Informed Flaw: We're told about how the gauntlet drains away his life and leaves Mozenrath physically weak. However, at no point in the series does Mozenrath ever really show that he has a frail body and is, in fact, able to physically exert himself in certain circumstances and battle toe-to-toe with Aladdin just fine without ever showing any ill side effects.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: A lot of his character came from the studio's interpretations when studying Jonathan's appearance and movements.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: Compared to the other villains, he's not the wisest, most skilled, or magically powerful villain but he's well-versed in all categories enough to continuously threaten Agrabah more than most other villains not named Abis Mal and his magic is at least potent enough to seriously hurt Genie.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Once you see him, or just hear his name, you know things are going to turn serious.
  • Lack of Empathy: This exchange sums it up quite well:
    Aladdin: "A test? People could've been hurt!"
    (Mozenrath and Xerxes exchange a look)
    Mozenrath: "…And your point would be?"
  • Light Is Not Good: When he wields the Shamash in "The Lost City Of The Sun".
  • Manipulative Bastard: He has a clear talent for it, often making Aladdin do exactly what he wants him to do.
  • Mysterious Past: The more things we find out about him, the more questions are asked. His exact relation to Destane, how he overthrew him or even how he got the gauntlet is never explained.
  • Narcissist: He's extremely vain, self-absorbed and egotistical.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Just about every time he appears, his evil plans come very close to succeeding, but he falls just short of the finish line.
  • Necromancer: He's the ruler of The Land of the Black Sand, a dark and depressing land, completely inhabited by undead guardians who follows his every order.
  • Nice Hat: Like the rest of his outfit, his turban is quite stylish.
  • Not a Morning Person: If his line about watching Sirocco destroy Agrabah being "worth getting up early for" is any indication.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: He wants the pleasure of killing Aladdin all to himself.
  • Our Liches Are Different: Mozenrath sits somewhere on the border between life and death, as his magic is literally eating away at his lifeforce and his body. He plans to get around his impending death by stealing other peoples' bodies.
  • Pretty Boy: A slender face, curly hair, lean figure, full and pouty lips… he's a pretty man.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Whenever things are going according to his plans, which is quite often.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: A rare male example; notable for being one of the few human characters on the show from the desert who is so pale. His skin is not very tan because the Land of Black Sand doesn't get a whole lot of sunshine, being a barren place inhabited by the undead.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Aladdin's red. He's often cold-blooded and calculating whereas Aladdin has a more impulsive and improvising nature.
  • Red Right Hand: Or in his case, Skeletal Right Hand, which his gauntlet may or may not have been responsible for.
  • The Resenter: Not only does he want revenge, but Aladdin is just the kind of person Mozenrath would hate anyway.
  • Smug Smiler: Look at his picture and see how kind and generous his smile is.
  • Snap Back: Several episodes featuring Mozenrath end with him seemingly irrevocably ruined, such as having lost all of his magic powers or having had his gauntlet turned into a mitt oven. He's inevitable back to full strength the next time he appears.
  • Softspoken Sadist: He has a very smooth voice and tends to greet his foes in a friendly attitude, which only adds to make his true evil self all the more bone-chilling.
  • Sophisticated as Hell: Being a young guy with Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness tendencies, it's to be expected.
  • Sorcerous Overlord: The most powerful wizard of the seven deserts, and the ruler of the most dark and dangerous part of them. Not bad for someone of his age.
    Mozenrath: I am Mozenrath. Ruler of the distant land of-
    Aladdin: Ruler? Yeah, right! You're barely older than me.
    Mozenrath: Which is your problem more than mine, I think.
  • Squishy Wizard: In this case, it's interestingly enough the usage of magic itself that makes his body weak. Oddly enough, despite this, he's proven to be physically capable enough to hold his own against Aladdin in a fight.
  • The Starscream: Was one to Destane, but has already succeeded by the time the series starts.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Very tall and dashing, dressed in fine, dark blue robes with a black cape, always ready with a smooth and sarcastic tone of voice, he's the most prominent example of this trope the series has.
  • Teen Genius: Is said to be around the same age as Aladdin.
  • Trap Master: Excels at setting up traps to capture or disable his opponents.
  • Villain Ball: The main reason that he always ends up losing is because his ego always leads to him underestimating Aladdin and his friends.
  • We Can Rule Together: He attempted to get Aladdin to work for him and pay him with gold. Of course, Aladdin rejects him.
  • Wicked Cultured: A very young case.
  • Xanatos Gambit: He sets one up in his debut episode. Either he will gain control over a magic-devouring beast, or Genie will be gone. Either outcome would leave Agrabah powerless against him. Unfortunately, Aladdin ruins this plan on both counts.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: And apparently very few left, which is what leads him to possess Aladdin.
  • You See, I'm Dying: His final plot in the series involves this, as his body starts to collapse under the effects of his Faustian bargain.

    Xerxes 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/xerxes_5586.jpg
Voiced by: Frank Welker

A bizarre eel-like monster that serves Mozenrath, apparently his loyal familiar.


  • Butt-Monkey: Is often the target of Mozenrath's anger.
  • Captain Obvious: Tends to be this.
    Xerxes: 'Nother statue!
    Mozenrath: Thank you, Xerxes.
  • Evil Counterpart: Towards Abu and Iago.
  • Flying Seafood Special: He doesn't look like any one creature in particular, but some kind of eel or deep-sea fish is the closest to describing him. And, of course, he floats around through the air.
  • Hulk Speak: His syntax and vocabulary isn't considered articulate.
  • The Igor: Even acts like the original Igor.
  • Mad Eye: Sports a mismatched set of eyes that really makes him look more disgusting.
  • Not So Different: From Iago.
    Genie: Agrabah has a strict ordinance against evil flying critters." (to Iago) "You've got your tags, don'cha?
  • Right-Hand Cat: He's the closest thing Mozenrath has to a loyal pet, although Xerxes is a little more empowered than is usual for this trope.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Mozenrath despite how he treats him, Xerxes still follows him.

    Destane 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/destane_7298.jpg

Former ruler of the Land of the Black Sand, an Evil Sorcerer so powerful that even Jafar feared him, until his former apprentice Mozenrath toppled him from his throne and turned him into one of his own undead servants, the Mamlucks.


  • Asshole Victim: It's implied he created the Mamlucks from former victims of his before he became one himself. Plus, anyone scary enough to make Jafar afraid to face him had to be pretty nasty.
  • The Dreaded:
    Iago: Destane’s a real hard-case. Even Jafar steered clear of him!
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Destane sounds like "Disdain", literally "loathing, scorn, hatred".
  • Punny Name: Disdain.
  • Reforged into a Minion: After claiming his throne, Mozenrath transformed him into a zombie-like monster called a Mamluck.
  • Sorcerous Overlord: Or, he used to be until Mozenrath (presumably his student at the time) overthrew him and usurped his throne.

    Mirage 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mirage_aladdin.jpg
Voiced by: Bebe Neuwirth

This female Evil Sorceress claims to be an incarnation of all evil, and yearns to crush Agrabah and all of the surrounding kingdoms to dust.


  • Art Shift: It's only for one episode, but in "The Lost Ones" she looks different, her feline features having been downplayed, such as a less elongated and slimmer head, making her face look more human compared to her normal looks. The reason for this, is unknown.
  • Badbutt: She mostly stays out of any direct confrontation with the heroes, since the things an incarnation of all evil would do to her enemies in a battle probably wouldn't be very kid-friendly.
    Mirage: I could do to you what I did to your genie friend. But you're full of BLOOD.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Dons an Egyptian two piece outfit.
  • Beast Man: She's essentially a humanoid cat.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: A rare example that's justified, as she claims to be incarnation of pure evil.
  • Cat Girl: A humanoid anthromorphic cat.
  • Cats Are Magic: A very negative example.
  • Cats Are Mean: Is an anthromorphic cat and is downright mean.
  • Cat Smile: This is appropriate since she is a cat woman. She also combines this with Slasher Smile pretty effectively.
  • The Chessmaster: She plays this role very well in most episodes that she's in, but she's still no match for Chaos.
  • Dark Is Evil: Dark outfits and black magic fits the bill.
  • The Dreaded: While most of Aladdin's Rogues Gallery are dangerous threats, Mirage takes the bill by being the most feared.
  • Emotion Eater: Not her specifically, but her fire cats become stronger when they sense the fear of others around them.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: She thought she could ruin Aladdin and Jasmine's relationship by turning the latter into a hideous snake woman and destroying the only thing that could reverse the transformation. Aladdin's response? Turn himself into a hideous snake man, so that they could still be together. This was the last thing she expected.
  • Evil Feels Good: As mentioned below, she does it because it's fun for her.
  • Femme Fatalons: Well, she is an anthropomorphic panthress.
  • For the Evulz: She only does it just for the sake that she enjoys doing it.
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal: She wears a complete Egyptian like outfit.
  • Hot Witch: If there's one good thing about her, she is attractive for a anthropomorphic cat.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: If she weren't an anthromorphic cat who solely desires destruction and misery, she would've been considered attractive.
  • Interspecies Romance: A former one with Fasir.
  • Karma Houdini: She's done a lot of evil things like burning down villages, transforming Jasmine into a snake monster, and plenty of other heinous acts. At best, only her plans get foiled but Mirage almost always gets off without so much as a scratch.
  • Knight of Cerebus: If she was in an episode, you knew something really bad was going to happen or had already happened. The episode "The Lost Ones" is a perfect example of this, as well as her debut episode.
  • Love Redeems: What prevents her from being considered a monster or going too far is that Fasir still believes there's good in her despite the story never continuing.
  • Made of Evil: So she claims, anyway. Fasir on the other hand believes there's still good in her.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Messes people around just for the joy of screwing people around.
  • Meaningful Name: She specializes in illusions and transformations, so nothing can be trusted when she is near.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Much to her displeasure, in "When Chaos Comes Calling" she provides crucial information to Aladdin to save Agrabah, granted, she did it to save herself as well.
  • Noodle Incident: As part of her mysterious past. At the end of "Eye Of The Beholder" Fasir briefly implies that he and she had some kind of romantic relationship, before something twisted her to evil. This is never brought up again.
  • Panthera Awesome: She's an anthropomorphic panthress.
  • Playing with Fire: Often casts fire, especially when she's mad.
  • Psycho Ex-Girlfriend: It's implied in the episode "Eye of the Beholder" that she and Fasir were once lovers, though it's never elaborated on any further.
  • Shadow Archetype: To Fasir, considering that he views The Power of Love as an incredible thing, and she sees it as weak and fragile. This is probably why their relationship didn't work out so well when they were lovers.
  • Smug Snake: Although she is indeed competent and one of the most dangerous villains Aladdin and his friends faced, her weakness is overconfidence.
  • Superpower Lottery: Courtesy of her magical powers. Throwing around fire, illusions, transformations, she can do almost anything the plot requires of her.
  • Super Strength: She can easily backhand Genie halfway through a wall.
  • Trrrilling Rrrs: She is an anthromorphic cat after all...
  • Would Hurt a Child: The episode "The Lost Ones" completely proves this in spades.

    Chaos 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aladdin_chaos_4922.jpg
Voiced by: Matt Frewer

The personification of chaos and disorder. Chaos was manipulated by Mirage as part of a scheme to destroy Agrabah.


  • Above Good and Evil: He considered both good and evil equally boring.
  • Always Someone Better: He mentions that Fate is more powerful than he is and hates the fact that he cheats at cards.
  • Affably Evil: Admittedly more Blue and Orange Morality than "evil", but he's still quite a dangerous nuisance. Even then, he's surprisingly polite and friendly.
  • Allergic to Routine: He's the spirit of disorder, the god of chaos. It comes with the territory.
  • Anti-Villain: He's a Noble Demon with Blue and Orange Morality.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: It isn't outright stated, but he seems to be the embodiment of Chaos itself.
  • Badass Adorable: He may be a silly cat-thing, but he's more powerful than every other character seen in the series.
  • Badass Beard: It looks a lot like a much bigger, bushier version of the Genie's.
  • Berserk Button: If there's one thing Chaos hates more than anything else, it's receiving orders. As it goes against his chaotic nature. Jasmine learns this the hard way.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: See Berserk Button above, but only as you don't order him around.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: He thinks in terms of "interesting" vs "boring" - as far as he's concerned, anything that removes a mundane situation should be applauded, even if that mundane situation is - say - peace and prosperity. That said, he always arranges for the destructive effects of his shenanigans to be cleared up and reversed eventually, so he at least realizes his games have limits.
  • Cats Are Snarkers: Even more than Mirage.
  • The Chessmaster: You wouldn't expect a chaos god to be much for forethought or planning ahead, but he's surprisingly okay with setting long-term plans and getting others to follow them. Like how he sets up Mirage to ultimately have to save the day because he's bored with her always being the Evil Sorcerer.
  • The Dreaded: Both Mirage and Genie are scared to death of him.
  • Great Gazoo: He's not malicious; he's just looking for mean-spirited fun and people to teach lessons to.
  • Horrifying the Horror: He’s so powerful, he even scares Mirage.
  • Killer Rabbit: He looks like a fluffy cat but has "more magic in his little whisker than a palace full of genies."
  • Large Ham: He's an all-powerful Reality Warper and he uses this power to make things as thrilling and unpredictable as possible.
  • Laughably Evil: Downplayed. While not exactly evil, he's still pretty funny.
  • Noble Demon: He may have a bad reputation, but he's usually trying to teach people lessons when he starts playing his "tricks".
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: He only pretended to be tricked by Mirage.
  • Pals with Jesus: He knows Fate, personally. "Pals" might be the wrong word, though; he claims Fate cheats at cards.
  • Reality Warper: Like Genie, but better.
  • The Trickster: Boy is he ever, he even pretended to be tricked simply to trick someone trying to trick him.
  • Xanatos Gambit: He tricks Mirage into saving Agrabah, to teach her a lesson about trying to trick him. If Mirage didn't act as predicted, then Aladdin wouldn't have known how to save Agrabah, which would also have fulfilled Chaos' plans. Like he said, it was "mostly" about teaching Mirage a lesson.

    Arbutus 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arbutus_2315.jpg
Voiced by: Ron Perlman

A mysterious plant-man encountered by the Sultan in his youth, Arbutus holds a cold disdain for humanity and seeks only to be left alone. When the Sultan dared to take one of Arbutus' prized blooms, Arbutus turned on him, promising only to let him leave when Arbutus was given leave to come and take the Sultan's most precious treasure in turn.


  • Achilles' Heel: The flower blooming in his chest is the source of his life force. Cut off the flower, and he dies.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: His death was pointless and the main characters regretted that it had come to that turn of events.
  • Anti-Villain: He's probably the least evil of the series villains (not the least effective, Abis Mal is that, but the least malicious) since he's only collecting a debt from the Sultan and doesn't hurt any of the characters before they hurt him.
  • Badass Boast
    "Your sword may sever every limb, but my power will always bloom!"
  • Beard of Evil: Though presumably made of vines, leaves or moss rather than hair.
  • Berserk Button: Do not pick or destroy anything from his garden castle, seriously, just don't. The Sultan learned this the hard way.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Being a plant and all.
  • Exact Words: The Sultan Promised to give him his "most precious treasure", 20 years later, that's exactly what he came for. Both the Sultan and Aladdin didn't realize this until it was too late.
  • Gaia's Vengeance: He's a sapient plant and able to control all other plants around him.
  • Healing Factor: He can regenerate severed appendages and seal wounds in his trunk effortlessly and endlessly, and enjoys taunting opponents with this Nigh-Invulnerability. However, he does have a weak spot.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: He believes that humans are selfish and destructive because of how they use and unthinkingly abuse vegetation.
  • Large Ham: He's very flamboyant in his speech, and tends to shout more often than not, particularly when angry.
  • Mad Artist: He wanted to include Jasmine in his decorations like a flower.
  • Misunderstood Loner with a Heart of Gold: He had no ill will towards Jasmine, and was thinking about releasing her until Aladdin barged in.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: He attacks and silences Genie just as the latter was trying to stop Aladdin from attacking, ultimately sealing his fate.
    • Also, that Badass Boast above? It's actually hinting at his Achilles' Heel, although Aladdin ultimately hits it by complete accident.
  • Nature Spirit: He's either this or a Plant Person, it's hard to say which.
  • Papa Wolf: He loves his plants as much as Aladdin and the Sultan love Jasmine.

    Nasira 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Nasira_6752.jpg
Voiced by: Jodi Benson

Jafar's twin sister who appears only in a tie-in video game.


  • Avenging the Villain: She's Jafar's twin sister (as if the image didn't make that obvious) and she's there to avenge him.
  • Game-Over Man: She always appears whenever you lose the game.
  • Gender Bender: A meta example; she's a reference to the second evil sorcerer of the original legend, who was the first evil sorcerer's brother.
  • Lean and Mean: Like her brother, she's tall and spindly in build.
  • Mythology Gag: In the original Aladdin legend, there were two evil sorcerers, the second being the vengeful brother of the first one. While Jafar was a Composite Character of the two of them, Nasira brings back the basic idea.
  • Nice Hat: Like her brother, she sports quite the impressive headpiece.
  • Scaled Up: Nasira doesn't need to transform into a cobra. She already looks like one.
  • Smug Snake: Like her brother, Nasira is quite smug and prone to gloating. She more down to earth than her brother, though.
  • Wicked Witch: Razoul's words about her.

    Saleen

Voiced by: Julie Brown

A haughty and malevolent mermaid whom Aladdin and Jasmine encounter during a trip to the coast. Unfortunately for Jasmine, the easily-jealous and possessive Saleen takes a shine to Aladdin and decides she wants him for herself.


  • Alpha Bitch: She certainly has the attitude.
  • Bad Boss: Subverted somewhat she shows compassion towards her pet octopus lacky, Armand. However, when Saleen casts a spell on Aladdin that turns him into a shark under her control, she completely ignores Armand and he feels jealous and unwanted. So he helps Genie and the others break the spell and even traps his mistress in a glass bubble. Later, when they all vanish into the sunset, Armand frees Saleen, who shows her affection to him again and vows that they will get them next time
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Acts all friendly towards Aladdin and even to Jasmine at first until she decides she wants to steal Aladdin from her, then she turns nasty.
  • Evil Redhead: She does have red hair.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Even after her true self is revealed, she does acts friendly but in a mocking way.
  • Hartman Hips: Particularly in human guise, she sports quite a catch set of hips.
  • Hot Witch: An overlap between this and Wicked Witch. She is a cute mermaid with a starfish that allows her to use various magical abilities like to give herself legs.
  • Jerkass: She's cute, but also selfish, self-centered, possessive, spiteful and vindictive, perfectly willing to ruin other peoples' lives for her own pleasure.
  • Making a Splash: She is a mermaid after all.
  • Meaningful Name: Saleen is a reference to the word "Saline" which is a part of salt water.
  • Pride: Saleen really only wants Aladdin just to stroke her ego that she can charm any man she chooses.
  • Smug Snake: Well, Smug Fish actually...
  • Stalker with a Crush: To Aladdin. Even crazier than Sadira, as she sees his repeated rejections as an insult worthy of some serious wrath.
  • Vain Sorceress: Powerful sorceress? Certainly, what with the elemental control over water and the Voluntary Shapeshifting. Vain? Oh hell yeah!
  • Villainous Crush: When she hears how devoted Aladdin is to Jasmine, she decides to have him for herself. Unlike Sadira, however, she has no interest in him personally and only wants him because it's a challenge.

Voiced by: Héctor Elizondo

A nature spirit in the form of a giant, winged snake who was once ruler over the rainstorms and Thundra's partner. She stole his powers when she realized his tyrannical nature, imprisoning him inside a cave behind a waterfall that she froze solid. He eventually escapes, hoping to take revenge.


  • Affably Evil: For a huge, monstrous snake, it's surprising how genuinely nice and polite he is. Also, he is technically right when he claims that Thundra stole his powers from him in the first place.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Thundra, then Iago.
  • Bad Boss: Played with when Iago becomes his sidekick.
    "Maybe if a scheme fails I can slap you around a bit? Yes, please?"
  • Brought Down to Badass: Even after losing his powers he's still an incredibly formidable enemy.
  • Determinator: He escapes his frozen waterfall prison out of pure willpower and desire for revenge on Iago. Then he does it again when he escapes from being sealed inside a live volcano.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Thundra. He's a giant, flying nature spirit just like her, but he wants to control the world's weather to rule it, not maintain harmony.
  • Evil Plan: It switches with each appearance. First he wanted his power back from Thundra and then he wanted revenge on Iago for foiling that plan and then he wanted revenge on Aladdin for foiling his revenge on Iago.
  • Feathered Fiend: Although the "feathered" part is minor, consisting mostly of his feathery wings, he has the fiendish part down pat.
  • Feathered Serpent: Just look at him.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: Just like Thundra, he peppers his speeches with Spanish words.
  • Just Eat Him: How he planned to take revenge on Iago.
  • Kill It with Ice and Kill It with Fire: He survives both attempts.
  • Large Ham: To go with the South-American theme.
  • Laughably Evil: He's legitimately cunning, malicious and so powerful that most of the heroes couldn't hope to defeat him in a fight. He's also extremely hammy, very unlucky and a bit of a space case - and his dissonant gentlemanly manner just adds to it. His appearances tend to be half threatening / half funny - like when he goes through an entire Villain Exit Stage Right without realizing that the heroes foiled him before he even started, funnier still because it all happens offscreen:
    (thinking he's caught Iago) "Muhuhuhahaha!" (Beat) "Hey! He's gone!"
  • Lowest Cosmic Denominator: He's clearly based on Quetzalcoatl, a benevolent deity who appeared as a giant snake with feathers in lieu of scales and, sometimes, wings, but he's an evil tyrant.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: He's a Quetzalcoatl, a giant snake with wings... and hair.
  • Power of the Storm: Just like Queen Thundra, he also has power to control weather.
  • Revenge: Against Iago, then to Aladdin.
  • Shadow Archetype: To Thundra. They both love the power the magic medallion gives them over the elements, but Thundra uses it to maintain order and stability for everyone while Malcho uses it to serve his own ambitions.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Each appearance begins with him escaping one can and ends him in a new one.
  • Third-Person Person: Almost every dialogue has him referring in third person.
  • Wild Hair: Just look at his image and see if his hair is well kept.

A trio of thieves who were once Aladdin's friends, and Abu's original owners, until they attempted to steal a magical gemstone and make a fortune from it. Instead, it transformed them into monsters, and they disappeared, only to eventually resurface seeking revenge on Aladdin and Abu, the only ones not transformed.

An omnipotent entity who only appears in the episode of the same name.


    Nefir Hasenuf 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nefir_hasenuf.jpg

An Egyptian-themed Imp and conman who always causes trouble just for the sake of profit. He travels with a party of four nameless imps, who uses as his minions.


  • Bad Boss: To his fellow imps.
  • The Chessmaster: His plans always involve manipulating several people all at once into colliding, so he can gain massive profit (at their detriment). He is also good at taking advantage of the fact that the heroes - while not stupid - are typically very blunt.
  • Dirty Coward: His cowardice almost matches his greed.
  • Fantastic Racism: Displays hints of a mutual enmity for Genie based on his race, but he's very adept at hiding it.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He can act nice and is quite adept at smooth-talking, but underneath it all, he's a selfish, money-grubbing monster willing to repeatedly level a city so he can get paid for rebuilding it over and over, or start a war to profit by selling weapons to both sides.
  • Greed: Rivals that of Iago, and unlike Iago, he has no qualms about doing anything that'll achieve his goals.
  • Large Ham: When he gets motivated, Nefir can really start Chewing the Scenery. His diatribe against his minions about their "slacking" stealing "the breath from my lungs, the enamel from my teeth, the marrow from my bones!" is really something to behold.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: His scheming always comes back to bite him whenever he is foolish enough to involve himself with Aladdin. Being forced into enchanted dancing shoes and acting as a floorshow in Getsistan after destroying it over and over, having to rebuild Agrabah after getting it destroyed by provoking a war between Agrabah and the Odiferous tribe, everything that happens after his poisoning Aladdin results in the waking of Mothula...
  • Manipulative Bastard: He once orchestrated a war between Agrabah and the Odiferans in order to profit on weapons dealing for both sides.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Pulls some spectacular faces of horrified realization in his first episode, "Never Say Nefir", when he realizes Genie has figured out how to destroy Nefir's enchanted dancing shoes.
    • His face becomes full of horror and despair in "Mission: Imp Possible" when he realizes that he has freed Mothias, a beast that preys exclusively on imps like himself.
  • Beast Man: He and his imps are a variant in that they look almost entirely like humans, save for leathery wings and an animal-like head, very similar to depictions of Egyptian deities. Nefir himself has a vulture-like head, whilst his minions consist of a crocodile, a hippo and a pair of warthogs.
  • Punny Name: "Never Has Enough" - doubles as Meaningful Name, thanks to his greed.
  • Smug Snake: Boy is he ever, even though his schemes are genuinely clever, he is too overconfident for his own good.
  • Toothy Bird: Well, Toothy Imp actually, but one with a bird beak full of teeth.
  • Troll: To Genie, who seriously hates imps. When Genie was forced to work with Nefir to find a cure for Aladdin, he takes every opportunity to charge Genie ridiculous amounts of money for "guide services".

An evil genie who serves as the antagonist for the spin-off Edutainment Game Disney's MathQuest with Aladdin.


  • Jackass Genie: She went out of her way to corrupt wishes in her backstory.
  • Large Ham: She only has one or two lines where she isn't shouting at the top of her lungs.
  • Loophole Abuse: She was released from her lamp due to a snake slithering over it. Due to not being human, the snake couldn't be her master, allowing her to do as she pleased. She can, however, still be trapped in her lamp.
  • Party Scattering: She splits the heroes up and traps them in different locations. Genie, Iago and the player are trapped in the palace dungeon, Abu is trapped in a food stall, Jasmine is imprisoned in a mosaic and Aladdin is trapped in a magical vortex.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: The wizard pharaoh sealed her lamp inside a floating pyramid. She gets put back at the end.
  • Supernatural Is Purple: Her clothes are purple.

An ice ifrit whom the gang come across in a palace while looking for a treasure Iago told them about. Although initially befriended, they have to fight him when they realize he intends to freeze Agrabah and the rest of the deserts forever.


  • Blue and Orange Morality: He basically lives under the assumption that "ice and snow are good, and none of either is bad". He doesn't really want to hurt people, but he finds the desert's heat so intolerable, so inherently wrong, that he's determined to freeze everything solid like his arctic homeland even if that's not what the people want.
  • Great Gazoo: Though not as much as Chaos.
  • An Ice Person: He is literally made out of ice, and can command ice, snow and cold as he sees fit.
  • Large Ham
  • Motor Mouth: He constantly raves and rants at high speed. He actually sounds a lot like Megavolt.
  • No Indoor Voice: In the German dub, he rarely talks below a constant yell.
  • Punny Name: Frigid.
