Dwarf Woodlands

    Prince 

The Prince

Voiced by (Japanese): Toshiyuki Morikawa

Voiced by (English): James Arnold Taylor

Origin: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

Appearances: Kingdom Hearts χ | Birth by Sleep

Snow White's romantic interest, who brings her back to life with true love's kiss.


  • No Name Given: Just like the film. He would eventually be marketed by Disney as "Prince Florian", but that is beyond this game.
  • Prince Charming: The Ur-Example of Disney princes, and one of three to appear in Birth by Sleep.
  • Satellite Love Interest: His one role in the whole franchise is to awaken Snow White with True Love's Kiss.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: He interacts with Aqua—perhaps the only other female character he's ever seen speaking to in Disney history—yet he only tells her how much he pines for Snow White.

    Seven Dwarfs 

The Seven Dwarfs

Voiced by (Japanese): Kazuo Kumakura (Doc), Ichirō Nagai (Grumpy), Junpei Takiguchi (Happy), Mitsuo Yagi (Sleepy), Takko Ishimori (Bashful), Ryuji Saikachi (Sneezy)

Voiced by (English): David Ogden Stiers (Doc), Corey Burton (Grumpy), James Arnold Taylor (Happy), Bill Farmer (Sleepy), Jeff Bennett (Bashful), Bob Joles (Sneezy)

Origin: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

Appearances: Kingdom Hearts χ | Birth by Sleep

Seven gem-mining dwarfs who take Snow White in. They're typically distrustful of strangers, particularly Ventus, whom they mistake for a diamond thief.


  • Adaptational Jerkass: With the sole exception of Dopey, the dwarfs are a good deal more hostile towards Ven than they've ever been portrayed towards anyone, suspecting him of being a thief and warning Snow White not to trust him, even though he's just trying to find his friend. It should be noted, however, that only Doc really suffers this; Grumpy is just being Grumpy, while the others don't have anything particularly nasty to say to Ven, with Happy saying he feels sorry for the poor kid. It's also implied that Snow White is the reason why they're so much nicer later on, as they treat Ven more hospitably should he decide to return (except for Grumpy, of course).
  • Blow You Away: Sneezy's D-Link command is an Aero spell, which lifts and scatters enemies with a burst of wind in Birth by Sleep.
  • Confetti Drop: Happy's D-Link command is the same as Confetti, a friendship command that increases your odds of a Critical Hit.
  • Dub Name Change: All seven dwarfs' names were changed in Japanese, each with an equivalent meaning:
    • Doc is Sensei.
    • Grumpy is Okorinbo.
    • Happy is Gokigen.
    • Sleepy is Nebosuke.
    • Bashful is Teresuke.
    • Sneezy is Kushami.
    • Dopey is Otoboke.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: The dwarfs are depicted on the first Dive to the Heart station at the start of the original game, effectively making them among the very first Disney characters shown in the entire franchise.
  • Forced Sleep: Sleepy's D-Link command is a Sleep spell, which puts all enemies around you to sleep.
  • Jerkass: Grumpy, true to form. He's the one who turns the dwarfs against Ven, charges you when trying to hide, and is the only one who never eases up about Ven being a diamond thief.
  • The Medic: Doc's D-Link command is equivalent to a Cura spell.
  • Nice Guy: Dopey is the only dwarf who doesn't hide from Ven or cast him out. Happy is also reasonably kinder towards Ven compared to the other dwarfs.
  • One-Hit Kill: Bashful's D-Link command is a Warp spell, which can potentially destroy multiple enemies on the field but yields no experience. Notably, this is the only way Ven and Aqua can use this ability, as the usual Warp command is exclusive to Terra.
  • Shrink Ray: Dopey's D-Link command is a Mini spell, which functions more like a shrink field and allows you to injure enemies just by stepping on them.
  • Sleepyhead: Sleepy is called "Sleepy" for this reason. Notably, he's the only one who remains completely stationary during the hide-and-seek minigame.
  • The Speechless: Dopey, who never figured out how to talk. Speak with him, and you'll only be met with Visible Silence.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works: Grumpy's D-Link command is a Treasure Raid attack.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Happy credits Snow White to making kinder men of the dwarfs (especially Grumpy). This is best portrayed when they give Ven a much warmer welcome after taking Snow White in, should you decide to visit after they'd kicked him out of their house.

Castle of Dreams

    Jaq 

Jaq

Voiced by (Japanese): Kōichi Yamadera

Voiced by (English): Rob Paulsen

Origin: Cinderella (1950)

Appearances: Kingdom Hearts χ (Union χ only) | Birth by Sleep

A friendly and helpful mouse who lives with Cinderella.


  • Adapted Out: Gus, Jaq's near constant companion in the film, is entirely absent in this game, with "Ven-Ven" taking up his role.
  • Catchphrase: "Zugk-zugk!" It also serves as a catch-all phrase, meaning "Come on!" or "Thank you!"
  • Determinator: Despite being a seemingly powerless mouse, he faces Lucifer and the Unversed just to help Cinderella's dreams come true.
  • Nice Mice: Like the film, he acts as Cinderella's constant friend.
  • Only Friend: Since most of the mice and other animals from the film are absent, Jaq is pretty much Cinderella's only companion before the Keyblade trio and the Fairy Godmother come along.
  • Speaking Simlish: He speaks exclusively in "Mouse Latin", as coined by the film's story writer. The subtitles also conveniently translate what he says.
  • Undying Loyalty: He runs through hordes of Unversed while lugging a giant key just to save Cinderella.

    Prince Charming 

Prince Charming

Voiced by (Japanese): Kenyuu Horiuchi

Voiced by (English): Matt Nolan

Origin: Cinderella (1950)

Appearances: Kingdom Hearts χ (Union χ only) | Birth by Sleep

The prince of the Castle of Dreams who falls in love with Cinderella.


    Grand Duke 

The Grand Duke

Voiced by (Japanese): Hiroshi Iwasaki

Voiced by (English): Rob Paulsen

Origin: Cinderella (1950)

Appearances: Kingdom Hearts χ (Union χ only) | Birth by Sleep

The king's right-hand man.


  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Like the film, he's only addressed as "Grand Duke".
  • Mr. Exposition: He mostly just describes plot points of his original film, but he's also notable for being the first to inform Terra of Vanitas's connection to the Unversed.
  • Nervous Wreck: His journal profile describes him as "a bit scatterbrained".
  • Non-Action Guy: He's unable to do any good against the Unversed, especially when Cinderella comes under attack, so he runs to the more capable Aqua for help.
  • Tears of Joy: He's seen dabbing tears away when Cinderella and Prince Charming reunite.

Deep Space

    Grand Councilwoman 

The Grand Councilwoman

Voiced by (Japanese): Ikuko Tani

Voiced by (English): Zoe Caldwell

Origin: Lilo & Stitch (2002)

Appearances: Birth by Sleep

The leader of the United Galactic Federation. In spite of being against Dr. Jumba and Experiment 626 (Stitch), she is rather reasonable with the traveling Keyblade wielders who encounter her.


  • Adaptational Heroism: A variation. She maintains the same antagonistic stance towards Stitch like the film, but the focus of Kingdom Hearts isn't on him. Simply by shifting the story's POV to the main Keyblade trio, she comes across as far less villainous.
  • Aliens Speaking English: Or Japanese, depending on the version. Either way, she's convenient for the heroes to understand.
  • Badass Longcoat: Though she doesn't really show herself to be badass, her coat is rather impressive.
  • Bald Women: She has no hair, likely a trait of her race.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Just like the movie, she isn't known as anything other than her position.
  • Humanoid Aliens: Moreso than any of the other aliens on the ship, anyway.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: As befitting her Iron Lady persona.
  • Iron Lady: As leader of her world, she's very stern, though not uncompromising.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: She's willing to release inmates from imprisonment to help her, and listens to the reasons for why people seem to randomly appear on her ship. She later demotes Gantu for stepping beyond his station in his persecution of Stitch, and considers shortening the latter's exile at Aqua's request.
  • The Reptilians: She looks like a cross between The Greys and a humanoid hydrosaur.
  • The Stoic: She's incredibly cool-headed, only

Captain Phoebus

Voiced by (Japanese): Souma Suzuki

Voiced by (English): Phil La Marr

Origin: The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996)

Appearances: Dream Drop Distance


  • Adults Are Useless: He's damn near useless against the Wargoyle as opposed to the teenage Riku, which Phoebus lampshades.
    "I gotta tell you, this is embarrassing—having to rely on a kid."
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Quasimodo from falling to his death atop Notre Dame.
  • Cool Sword: He owns one, which is relatively effective against the lesser Dream Eaters.
  • Defector from Decadence: He can see what a scumbag Frollo is, but it's Frollo's willingness to attack innocents with the Dream Eaters that makes Phoebus fully turn against him.
  • Fair Cop: Phoebus is a reasonable sort for a guard captain.
  • Official Couple: Becomes one with Esmeralda.

Country of the Musketeers

    Musketeer Mickey, Donald, and Goofy 

Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy

Voiced by (Japanese): Takashi Aoyagi (Mickey), Kōichi Yamadera (Donald), Yu Shimaka (Goofy)

Voiced by (English): Bret Iwan (Mickey), Tony Anselmo (Donald), Bill Farmer (Goofy)

Origin: Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers (2004)

Appearances: Dream Drop Distance

Dream versions of King Mickey, Donald, and Goofy from the Country of the Musketeers, back when they were in training as Royal Musketeers.


  • Adaptational Wimp: They don't see the same kind of action they do in the film. Donald is especially affected, coming off as more of a coward for running off when he learns Pete's been using them than the film, where he was almost executed and knew just how out of his depth he was.
  • Catchphrase: "All for one, and one for all!"
  • Cowardly Lion: Donald is a "chicken" who runs and hides at the first sign of danger, but doesn't stay gone for long.
  • Kicked Upstairs: They are "nobodies" who were promoted to Royal Musketeers by Pete, who knew they wouldn't be up to the task of protecting Princess Minnie. Thanks to Sora, they prove their mettle.
  • Nice Hat: All three have them, but Mickey's hat stands out for belonging to one of the original Musketeers.
  • Royal Rapier: The standard issue weapon of a Royal Musketeer.

    Princess Minnie 

Princess Minnie

Voiced by (Japanese): Yuko Mizutani

Voiced by (English): Russi Taylor

Origin: Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers (2004)

Appearances: Dream Drop Distance

A dream version of Queen Minnie, back when she was princess of the Country of the Musketeers.


  • Bound and Gagged: She gets locked up in a chest to this effect.
  • Damsel in Distress: She's targeted by Pete as part of a kidnapping plot, and needs to be rescued at least three times (twice by Sora, once by Riku).
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Though it's nowhere near as impressive as her queen's gown, she has a quite fancy dress with a Badass Cape
  • Pink Means Feminine: She's a princess with a pink dress.
  • Princess Classic: A more straightforward example than the film, which outright parodies her role.
  • Princesses Rule: She's the highest authority figure in the kingdom, as Pete would legally need her approval to become king. This would later be retroactively subverted, since Minnie eventually becomes queen.

Symphony of Sorcery

    Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey 

Mickey Mouse

Voiced by (Japanese): Takashi Aoyagi

Voiced by (English): Bret Iwan

Origin: The Sorcerer's Apprentice (1940)

Appearances: Dream Drop Distance

A dream version of King Mickey, back in his early days as Yen Sid's apprentice.


  • Adaptational Karma: Inverted. Unlike the film, Mickey relinquishes the hat before Yen Sid finds out and avoids getting in trouble after Sora and Riku clean up his messes.
  • The Apprentice: This is Mickey as the sorcerer's apprentice, of course. Not just as a sorcerer, but a Keyblade wielder as well.
  • Hat of Power: Just like the film, he uses Yen Sid's magic wizard hat to goof off and make his own life easier. Also like the film, he doesn't know how to control it.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: He's responsible for bringing the Spellican into his world, trapping himself in a dream.
  • Robe and Wizard Hat: He's decked out in one of his most famous get-ups in Disney history.
  • Telepathy: Although he's stuck in a dream, he can still communicate with Sora and Riku telepathically.
