Disney Villains: The Top Secret Files is a 2005 Disney licensed book about the various villains in Disney Animated Canon. It's a comedic handbook about the pasts of various characters, though it's not considered canon to the films.

The villains featured are Cruella De Vil, Lady Tremaine, Captain Hook, Madame Medusa, the Evil Queen, Maleficent, Yzma, Gaston, Ursula, and Jafar.

  • Formerly Fit: Ursula is shown to have once been as skinny as Ariel, and special mention is made of how much thinner she used to be while depicting her gorging herself at a banquet.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Maleficent is depicted with upright pigtails as a child.

  • No Name Given: Snow White's step-mother isn't given a name.
  • Villain Episode: The book is Disney Villain-centric.
  • Would Hurt a Child: It's implied that Ursula was banned from visiting the castle because she tried to poison Ariel as a baby.
