Similar to the Disney Princesses, the Disney Villains have their own franchise. The franchise consists of Disney's most well-known and beloved villains and span from various forms of media and merchandise, typically aimed at an older audience.


Over its more than 90 year history, Disney has brought to life more than 127 different villains from films, sequels, television, video games, books, and even the Disney theme parks. Although many different evil characters and enemies have been created, not all of them are official members of the Disney Villains franchise.

Conversely, some of the "villains" that are marketed are antagonists but not necessarily villains since they are not evil characters, sometimes not fully agreeing with other antagonists or redeeming themselves in the end, but they still cause trouble to the protagonists; Sour Bill being one such example ("villain" and "antagonist" are not the same thing).

Disney's Divas of Darkness[]

Disney's Divas of Darkness

Disney's Divas of Darkness (also shortened to Disney Divas, DDD, or Disney's Bad Girls) is a sub-franchise consisting of the most recognizable female Disney Villains (or Disney villainesses). It can be seen as a counterpart to the Disney Princess franchise because it too targets a female audience but consists of evil characters instead.


Disney's Sinister Cats[]

Disney's Sinister Cats is a lesser known sub-franchise consisting of felines. It should be noted that several of its members were not the main antagonists of their respective films. This franchise is also known as Disney Cats, but it should be noted that the franchise does not include feline protagonists like Oliver or Thomas O'Malley under this banner. Felines with more evident anthropomorphic features like Pete, Gideon, or Prince John are also not included.


The Thirteen Reflections of Evil[]

The Thirteen Reflections of Evil

The Thirteen Reflections of Evil was a Disney Villain group made for the Epcot pin trading event in the September of 2013. In the story, the Evil Queen found an incantation which if performed with a magic mirror on Friday the Thirteenth, would summon 13 of the most powerful and evil villains from across time and space. The villains then broke the mirror and hid the thirteen shards so no one could use it against them.


  1. Chernabog
  2. Maleficent
  3. The Evil Queen
  4. Jafar
  5. Ursula
  6. Cruella De Vil
  7. Dr. Facilier
  8. Hades
  9. Scar
  10. Captain Hook
  11. Queen of Hearts
  12. Gaston
  13. Oogie Boogie


In most crossover appearances featuring the villains, a specific villain would act as the leader, or the central figure of the project to whom the others are (more or less) subservient.

Other media[]

Television specials[]

In the Disney's Scary Tales (1981) episode special as part of The Wonderful World of Disney, Hans Conried (voice of the Evil Queen's Magic Mirror from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs) hosts the special with Disney Villains in eight segments including Captain Hook from Peter Pan, Edgar Balthazar the Bulter from The Aristocats, Willie the Giant from Mickey and the Beanstalk, Kaa and Shere Khan from The Jungle Book, the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cruella De Vil from One Hundred and One Dalmatians, Madame Medusa from The Rescuers, and Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty.

Mickey's House of Villains[]

The Disney Villains guest star in this House of Mouse with Jafar as the leader. He and the rest of the villains overthrow Mickey Mouse and locks all the heroes/heroines in the kitchen and kick Mickey and his friends out forcing them to fight to get the club back.

Disney's Villains' Revenge[]

In this computer game, Captain Hook, the Evil Queen, the Queen of Hearts, and the Ringmaster change their respective stories to their own advantage.

Kingdom Hearts[]

The Disney Villains are antagonists in the game series, with the Disney Villain Council led by Maleficent being a prominent force. All of the members command the Heartless horde as a means of controlling their respective worlds, and in turn help Maleficent in locating the Keyblade. The council consisted of Maleficent, Pete, Jafar, Hades, Captain Hook, Oogie Boogie, and Ursula. Captain Barbossa, Scar, and Riku were also members for brief periods of time. Most of the members meet their demise, although Hades, Captain Hook, and Pete are the only ones to survive; while Maleficent is later resurrected, Pete is the only one to rejoin her. In the Kingdom Hearts manga series by Shiro Amano, it is revealed that a spot on the Disney Villain Council was offered to the Cheshire Cat, though he saw their goals as beneath him and refused.

Other villains also appear in the series though not connected to the council, including Clayton, Chernabog, Shan Yu, Master Control Program, Monstro, the Evil Queen, Lady Tremaine, Gantu, Claude Frollo, CLU, Mother Gothel, Hans, Randall Boggs, and Davy Jones. Gaston and King Candy also appear in the mobile games Kingdom Hearts χ and Union χ, respectively.
