Origin: Aladdin (1992)
Appearances: Kingdom Hearts χ | Kingdom Hearts I | Chain of Memories | 358/2 Days | Kingdom Hearts II | coded

A friendly young thief living on the streets of Agrabah. He stumbles across a magic lamp in the Cave of Wonders that ends up making his and Sora's life a whole lot easier.

  • Adaptational Badass: He's much more adept at using a sword than he is in the film and its TV series, where he relies more on his wits to get out of trouble.
  • Adaptational Heroism: While still an overall heroic guy in the movie, this version of Aladdin lacks many of his more selfish traits. He does consider using the Genie to become a prince and woo Jasmine at first, but the circumstances against Jafar and the Heartless quickly derail those plans.
  • Blade Spam: His Sandstorm ability in Kingdom Hearts and Slash
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He's rather cocky when he fights.
  • Fragile Speedster: He takes on more of this role in Kingdom Hearts II. While his HP isn't all that low, he tends to hit enemies rather lightly.
  • Guile Hero: Chain of Memories shows off more of his trickster side when he gets Jafar to waste one of his wishes on getting Genie to attack him.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: His Weapon of Choice is a Scimitar.
  • Heroic BSoD: He undergoes a brief one in Kingdom Hearts when Jasmine is kidnapped, and he can't go with Sora and his friends. He gets out of it when he realizes Genie can go in his place.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Just like the film, he thinks he's unfit for Jasmine's affections because of his lowly background. Unlike the film, however, he has very little time to mope about it with the Heartless running about.
  • Item Caddy: Aladdin's role in I is a fighter with support abilities geared towards obtaining more items or munny after a fight, and he has the Lucky Strike ability to boot. In II, he's more of a rapid-hitting fighter who can make enemies drop recovery items with each hit.
  • Limit Break: "Trick Fantasy" in Kingdom Hearts II. It consists of Aladdin and Sora hacking away at enemies with their blades, and it finishes with them bouncing off each other as they spin their blades around them, dropping and scooping up recovery items in the process.
  • Lovable Rogue: He's a thief and a trickster (at least initially), but a sympathetic one you can root for.
  • Nice Guy: His first inclination upon meeting Sora and company is to get rid of the Heartless they're fighting.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a red fez.
  • Selfless Wish: All of the wishes he's seen making to Genie in the series are done to help others.
  • Street Urchin: He is frequently demeaned by Jafar as a "street rat".
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: He wears a vest, but no shirt.

Origin: The Little Mermaid (1989)
Appearances: Kingdom Hearts I | Chain of Memories | Kingdom Hearts II | Kingdom Hearts III

A mermaid princess of Atlantica, and the youngest daughter of King Triton. Her life's dream is to see new worlds beyond her boring undersea home, which she finds might not be so impossible when she meets Sora and his friends.

  • Action Girl: She's the only female Guest-Star Party Member in the first game. Not so much in the second, where she suffers from Chickification. Fortunately, she returns to the role in Kingdom Hearts III, thanks to her becoming a summon.
  • Adaptational Badass: A noncombatant in her home film, but just as tough as any other party member in I and Chain of Memories.
  • Adaptational Modesty: In the movie, she's left butt naked after Ursula turns her into a human. In the game, she's magically changed into a rag dress.
  • Aesop Amnesia: She makes yet another deal with Ursula in Kingdom Hearts II, completely forgetting about her previous encounter with Ursula and how badly that ended ended.
  • Chickification: She gets hit with this big time in Kingdom Hearts II, getting reduced from a party member to a Damsel in Distress.
  • Cute Mute: Just like the movie, she briefly surrenders her voice for Ursula in exchange for getting turned into a human in Kingdom Hearts II.
  • Damsel in Distress: She falls into Ursula's clutches in Kingdom Hearts II, just like she does in the movie.
  • Deal with the Devil: She ends up making one with Ursula in almost every appearance: once to travel to other worlds like Sora in Kingdom Hearts, once to save Flounder's life in Chain of Memories, and once to become human in Kingdom Hearts II. The second time is justified as she's just a figment of Sora's memories, but in the third, she acts as if she'd never even met Ursula.
  • Like Brother and Sister: She and Sora have a very close and platonic bond, definitely closer than Sora has with many of the other Disney characters.
  • Making a Splash: In Kingdom Hearts III, she is surrounded by water to facilitate her presence as a mermaid, and she can dive into the ground
  • Ms. Fanservice: She is quite gorgeous, and she wears nothing but a Seashell Bra.
  • Myself My Avatar: On account of getting turned into a human at the end of Kingdom Hearts II, she appears in Kingdom Hearts III in an avatar of her mermaid form made out of sea foam.
  • Natural Weapon: Her basic attack in the first game is a Tail Slap.
  • Pinocchio Syndrome: Following the film's plot, she wants to become human in Kingdom Hearts II so she can be with Prince Eric. She gets her wish via a Deal with the Devil with Ursula, which doesn't turn out so well for her. At the end of the game, Triton turns her into a human permanently.
  • Pretty Princess Powerhouse: Ariel's pampered upbringing and majestic singing voice distract from her ability to use magic to rip apart the soulless legion attacking her world's existence. It's just another part of a royal's busy day.
  • Rebellious Princess: Although it's never expressed whether she had any royal duties, she openly butts heads with her father for keeping her cooped up at the palace.
  • Red Mage: She can use Thunder to attack, Aero to defend, and Cure to heal.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: She helps fend off the Heartless plaguing Atlantica, despite Triton's protests.
  • Seashell Bra: She is the original Trope Codifier, at least while she's a mermaid.
  • Spin Attack: Her Spiral Wave attack is a corkscrew attack that bores into enemies and hits them repeatedly.

    Jack Skellington 
Voiced by (Japanese): Masachika Ichimura
Voiced by (English): Chris Sarandon
Origin: The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Appearances: Kingdom Hearts I | Chain of Memories | 358/2 Days | Kingdom Hearts II

The Pumpkin King of Halloween Town who always tries coming up with new ideas for the annual Halloween festival.

  • Adaptational Badass: He's a Black Mage in this series, with magic abilities he totally lacks in his original film.
  • Aesop Amnesia: He's once again obsessed with the thought of Christmas in Kingdom Hearts II, even though it's hinted that the events of the movie (or some variation thereof) have already taken place prior.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He is the Pumpkin King, and the most adept in town at fighting the Heartless. Crosses into Asskicking Equals Authority when one takes into account that the only reason he has the job is because he's the scariest and the toughest.
  • Bad Santa: In Kingdom Hearts II. This is not out of actually being evil, however, and more out of not really knowing how Christmas operates, leading to him making such "decorations" as a guillotine wrapped in Christmas lights in the middle of town square.
  • Black Mage: His overall abilities in the game match one, specializing in Fire, Blizzard, Thunder, and Gravity spells. In Kingdom Hearts II, his spells take on more unique properties: his Blazing Fury makes him Wreathed in Flames, his Icy Terror tracks and hits enemies repeatedly, and his Bolts of Sorrow strike multiple times.
  • Creepy Good: He's morbid and obsessed with scaring people, but he only does it because he knows when it's fun to be scared, and is a good guy overall.
  • Dem Bones: He's a walking, talking skeleton man.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: In Kingdom Hearts, Jack tries his hand at controlling the Heartless to use them as his latest Halloween theme. He realizes what a bad idea this is when they end up turning Oogie Boogie into a monster.
  • Fire, Ice, Lightning: He has access to Fire (Blazing Fury), Blizzard (Icy Terror), and Thunder (Bolts of Sorrow) in the first three games.
  • Flanderization: His obsession with Christmas is even more overblown than it is in the film, staying in his "Sandy Claws" costume after the fiasco with Santa.
  • Fluffy Tamer: In the original game, he and Dr. Finkelstein come up with a guiding device for the Heartless to make them dance for that year's Halloween. It actually works...until he tries making a heart for the Heartless.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: He doesn't use a weapon, fighting instead with his "Bone Fists".
  • Gravity Master: His Ghostly Scream in the original game is a Gravity spell, which flattens enemies and knocks down airborne ones, taking a percentage of HP.
  • Large Ham: He's a showman at heart, and his abilities have a very theatrical edge.
  • Limit Break: "Applause, Applause" in Kingdom Hearts II, which combines a Spin Attack with a Magic Dance that surrounds Sora and Jack with ghostly apparitions.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: In the first game, he and Dr. Finkelstein use a guidance system to make the Heartless more docile so Jack can use them in the Halloween festival. Once they build an artificial heart to liven the Heartless's performance, it sends them into a frenzy and nearly gives Oogie Boogie the ability to control them.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Like all of Halloween Town, he delights in the macabre, which also pervades his idea of Christmas decorations.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: His attempts to claim Christmas as his own are pulled off with a macabre, Halloween-y twist.
  • One Steve Limit: Subverted with Kingdom Hearts II, which introduces Jack Sparrow as another party member.
  • Perky Goth: He's a pale and spooky-looking skeleton, but is also a jolly and downright friendly guy.
  • Slide Attack: His "Applause!" ability in the original game consists of him sliding into enemies on his knees.

Voiced by (English): Christopher Steele
Origin: Peter Pan (1953)
Appearances: Birth by Sleep | Kingdom Hearts I | Chain of Memories | Kingdom Hearts II

The flying boy from Never Land, where nobody ever grows up.

  • Limit Break: He has one as a summon in Kingdom Hearts II, fittingly called "Neverland".

Origin: Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Appearances: Kingdom Hearts χ | Kingdom Hearts I | Chain of Memories | 358/2 Days | Kingdom Hearts II

Voiced by (English): Cam Clarke
Origin: The Lion King (1994)
Appearances: Kingdom Hearts I | Chain of Memories | Kingdom Hearts II | Kingdom Hearts III

  • Dishing Out Dirt: His summon gem is known as "Earthshine" in the first game, and his Limit in Kingdom Hearts II causes rocks to erupt from the earth around him and Sora.
  • Limit Break: "King's Pride" in Kingdom Hearts II. It starts with him and Sora pounding the ground and causing jagged rocks to erupt from the earth (Wildcat), followed by a barrage of spinning claw strikes on the ground (X-Claw) or in the air (High Fang), and finishing with a mighty roar that vanquishes any enemies surrounding them (Proud Roar).
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: His signature attack in the series is Proud Roar, a literal roar that destroys enemies; it's a Charged Attack in Kingdom Hearts I, and part of his Limit Break in Kingdom Hearts II.
  • Myself My Avatar: He manifests in Kingdom Hearts III through a giant, flaming projection.

  • Limit Break: He has four in Kingdom Hearts II: "Sonic Rave", in which Sora clobbers enemies with Genie in the form of a giant fist; "Strike Judgement", in which Genie shoots a stream of magic bullets; "Final Arcana", in which Genie swings Sora around like a sword before letting Sora shoot magic bullets from his mouth; and "Infinity", which is a flurry of punches and sword strikes with an explosive finish.

    Fa Mulan / Ping 
Voiced by (Japanese): Mayumi Suzuki
Voiced by (English): Ming-Na Wen
Origin: Mulan (1998)
Appearances: Kingdom Hearts II

The daughter and only child of the distinguished Fa family in the Land of Dragons, replacing her ailing father when he is drafted into the imperial army to battle the Huns. Because women are forbidden from fighting, she must disguise herself as a man, which is where Sora and co. first meet her.

  • Action Girl: The most famous example in Disney movies, and the only female companion you have in the second game apart from temporary fighters.
  • Adaptational Badass: As if she wasn't a skilled enough swordswoman in the movie, she has downright supernatural movements in this game, allowing her to fly around the air.
  • Ancestral Weapon: Her weapon is known as the Sword of the Ancestors.
  • Anime Chinese Girl: Zig-zagged; she is based on a Western and distinctly non-Animesque depiction of a real-life Chinese fable, but appears as a Guest-Star Party Member in a Japanese action RPG.
  • Cassandra Truth: Just like the film, she has a hard time convincing Captain Li of Shan-Yu's survival, since she had been lying about her identity. Fortunately, the sight of Shan-Yu's falcon makes things easier.
  • Cool Sword: Her father's sword, which has a dragon face on the hilt.
  • Fireballs: Her standard magic attack, courtesy of Mushu.
  • Guile Heroine: While she achieves a degree of martial skill, her greatest achievements are by her wits. For example, using a cannon to trigger an avalanche and wipe out Shan-Yu's entire Heartless army instead of just Shan-Yu himself.
  • Limit Break: "Dragonblaze". The attack opens with Mushu firing a barrage of Fireballs around them (Red Rocket). After this, Sora and Mulan can move freely in the air for a limited time to either charge enemies while Wreathed in Flames (Flametongue) or immobilize them with a burst of flame (Heat Lance). It then finishes with a volley of fireballs raining down all around you (Red Meteor).
  • The Load: When disguised as Ping, she's practically useless in a fight, constantly tripping over herself when she tries taking a swing.
  • Magic Knight: She fights with a sword, and she uses Mushu's fire to perform magic attacks.
  • Playing with Fire: Courtesy of Mushu, she is capable of performing Fire-type attacks.
  • Reverse Grip: She wields her sword like this after discarding her disguise.
  • Sliding Scale of Gameplay and Story Integration: Lies in Deliberate Integration. For story reasons, she disguises herself as a male soldier named Ping. However, because she is barely trained to fight and wear an armor not quite fit for her, on top of upholding the masquerade, she is a liability in combat, as she is unable to perform special attacks and her regular ones see her stumble every time she tries to land a hit. Once she discards her armor and stops pretending to be a man, she becomes much more powerful and useful.
  • Stay in the Kitchen: Women in her world are forbidden from participating in battle, which is why she needs to disguise herself as a man, and she is promptly expelled from the army the moment Mushu blows her cover. Fortunately for her, Sora and his friends don't share such sentiments, and with their support, she is able to break free from these.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: Perhaps one of the most famous examples. After her ailing father is drafted into the army, she decides to take his place by disguising herself as a son, since women are forbidden from fighting in her world.
  • Took a Level in Badass: She truly shows her value when she stops pretending to be a man and focuses on the task at hand rather than worrying about exposing herself.
  • Wreathed in Flames: Her "Flametongue" ability allows her to fly around the air in flames.

Appearances: Kingdom Hearts II | Kingdom Hearts III

The crafty and unpredictable pirate captain of the Black Pearl, first seen looking for a new ship in Port Royal. Sora and the gang join Jack's crew to help him get his ship back from his mutinous old crew.

  • One Steve Limit: He is a subversion, getting introduced after Jack Skellington, and even sharing a game with him, no less. To distinguish the two, Sora and his friends refer to him as "Captain" on the field.

    Chicken Little 
Voiced by (Japanese): Keiko Yamamoto
Voiced by (English): Zach Braff
Origin: Chicken Little (2005)
Appearances: Kingdom Hearts II

A young chicken boy who makes up for his height with courage, using baseball and firecrackers to get the job done.

  • Disc-One Nuke: His whistle (which he almost exclusively uses) does no damage, but it functions as a better Magnet than the actual spell itself and arrives far earlier than it. While he's still better than Magnega at immobilizing foes and bringing them to you, he ends up falling short compared to the higher leveled Drive Forms (or in Final Form's case, the first level) and other summons. Stitch in particular outclasses him later on, as his ability to refill your MP bar and stunlock enemies make him far more versatile while allowing you to functionally perform the same role.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: His appearance in this game precedes the Japanese release of his film by a single day.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Unlike other summon characters, who are either acquainted with Sora or are already familiar with him before being summoned, Chicken Little never appears before you summon him, yet he acts like he already knows Sora.
  • This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: Chicken Little's whistle more or less has the same effect as Magnet, meaning he has at least some use before you get the spell.
  • Weaponized Ball: In FPS Mode, he can knock baseballs into enemies, keeping them suspended in the air.

A genetic experiment created by the mad scientist Dr. Jumba Jookiba to be the most destructive force in all of Deep Space. Thanks to an encounter with a certain trio of Keyblade wielders, however, he begins learning about the concepts of friendship. Sora can summon him with the Ukulele Charm after a chance encounter with the fuzzball in Hollow Bastion.

    Prince Phillip 
Voiced by (Japanese): Toru Furusawa
Voiced by (English): Josh Robert Thompson
Origin: Sleeping Beauty (1959)
Appearances: Birth by Sleep

The prince of a kingdom neighboring Enchanted Dominion who fell for Princess Aurora, whom he knows as Briar Rose. Aqua helps him break out of Maleficent's dungeon so he can lift the curse on his true love.

  • Cool Sword: The Sword of Truth, which he uses to defeat Maleficent in her dragon form and presumably weaken her powers.
  • Fastball Special: He helps Aqua get around Maleficent's castle—and up on the dragon's back—this way.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: The Shield of Virtue, which protects himself and Aqua from Dragon Maleficent's fire breath during their battle.
  • Prince Charming: He is one of three famous princes in Disney history who show up in Birth by Sleep, but he is the one who fits this trope the closest, since he actually fights to save his love.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: That something involves fighting a dragon with an enchanted sword and shield.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Like his fellow princes, Prince Phillip interacts with Aqua briefly, but he only tells her how his heart pines for the beautiful girl he'd met in the glen.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works: How he finishes Maleficent off, just like in the movie.
  • Warrior Prince: He's both a prince and a Guest-Star Party Member who helps Aqua fight through droves of Maleficent's henchmen.

Origin: Hercules (1997)
Appearances: Kingdom Hearts χ | Birth by Sleep | Kingdom Hearts I | Chain of Memories | 358/2 Days | Kingdom Hearts II | coded | Kingdom Hearts III

The mortal son of the gods Zeus and Hera, the reigning champ at Olympus Coliseum, and the greatest hero in all of Greece.

  • Adaptational Badass: In the movie and most Greek-related media, Hercules's powers are limited to Super Strength. Here, he's given a few light-based attacks that he didn't have before.
  • Adaptational Intelligence: He comes across as a bit less dimwitted and more mature in this series than the movies, at least in cutscenes; in battle, he becomes Too Dumb to Live.
  • Aesop Amnesia: It's implied that the events of the film took place before the first game, but come Kingdom Hearts II, he's back to feeling he has to fight opponent after opponent to maintain his status. By the end of the game, Sora helps remind him of how to be a true hero again.
  • Barrier Warrior: He and Sora can produce a protective force field called Aura Guard during the battles with Pete and Hades in Kingdom Hearts II.
  • Battle Aura: Whenever he glows yellow during boss fights, it means he's completely invincible. In Kingdom Hearts I, a well-timed barrel is enough to dispel it, while in Kingdom Hearts II, he only uses it momentarily to break out of your combos after sustaining enough damage.
  • Cool Sword: He uses his sword to perform a Spin Attack in Kingdom Hearts I.
  • Dub Name Change: In the Japanese version, Hercules is called by his proper Greek name, "Herakles", though his In-Universe Nickname is still "Herc".
  • Fastball Special: He will call to you to do this with Ven while fighting the Jellyshade Unversed swarm in Birth by Sleep.
  • Graceful Loser: He reacts to his loss to Sora in Kingdom Hearts I with great admiration for his strength.
  • Heroic BSoD: In Kingdom Hearts II, Hades succeeds at breaking his spirit when Hercules finds the Coliseum utterly demolished by the Hydra he didn't quite kill in his hurry to save his girlfriend.
  • Heroic Build: He's one of the most famous heroes in Greek mythology, known for being totally ripped. Birth by Sleep shows him in his younger, slimmer days.
  • He’s Back: After falling into a Heroic BSoD in Kingdom Hearts II, Hades unwittingly breaks him out of it by threatening to kill Meg, causing Herc to risk his life to save her and rediscover what made him a true hero in the first place.
  • In-Universe Nickname: His friends all call him "Herc", just like the movie.
  • Light 'em Up: He can produce an energy field around him to damage you in Kingdom Hearts I, and two Aura Spheres that can knock Hades out of his invincible berserk state in II.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Because he was born a god, he had freakishly huge strength even as an awkward, skinny teenager.
  • Pec Flex: Tends to do this between attacks during boss fights against you, leaving him open to a combo.
  • Shockwave Stomp: It's an attack he uses from time to time in Kingdom Hearts I and II. In the later game, the attack will destroy any barrels on the field
  • Spin Attack: He uses one in Kingdom Hearts I, which usually leaves him dizzy and vulnerable.
  • Super Strength: He's based on one of the most prevalent super strength users in history. As a testament of his strength, he can turn the Rock Titan into a Twinkle In The Sky with his bare hands.
  • Too Dumb to Live: When battling you, he'll always take a moment to taunt you with a Pec Flex for a good few seconds, leaving him wide open to attacks regardless of whether his invincibility aura is up.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: In Birth by Sleep, he clumsily swings his fists at enemies and stumbles around a lot, but still possesses godlike strength.
  • Use Your Head: He'll charge at you with a headbutt. Guarding the attack will cause him to hurt his head.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: When you fight him in the first game, he's got his godly aura shining and is impervious to damage...until you chuck a barrel at him and break the aura.
  • Worthy Opponent: He comes to view Sora as one after losing to him one-on-one, and without holding back, in Kingdom Hearts I.
