The Council of Disney Villains are a group of antagonists in the Kingdom Hearts series. They are also the villains of many theme parks and other adaptations.


The council continues to make appearances throughout the series. Maleficent is the leader of the council. The group works together mostly behind the scenes as a secret society of sorts.

They seek the power that Kingdom Hearts can grant them, wishing to use it for universal domination. They once resided in their former headquarters, the Villains' Vale. In truth however, they are merely just pawns of Ansem, Seeker of Darkness, and through him, they are pawns of Xehanort, unknowingly doing his bidding when they believe they are the true puppet masters.


Maleficent, Pete, Hades and Captain Hook are currently the only members of the council.

Kingdom Hearts

  • Maleficent - leader of the council. Destroyed her world and managed to kidnap the Princess of Heart from there.
  • Pete - Maleficent's true second in command. While not seen, Pete was a member at this time. Sent to collect Heartless for Maleficent's army.
  • Jafar - Maleficent's second in command. Was the only villain to find both his worlds Keyhole and Princess of Heart.
  • Hades - God of the Underworld.
  • Captain Hook - Used his ship as the villains main form of travel.
  • Ursula - Sea Witch.
  • Oogie Boogie - Lowest ranking of the main council and weakest. Could not control Heartless.
  • Riku - Joined Maleficent so he could get Kairi's heart back.
  • Ansem, Seeker of Darkness - also technically joined the group when he possessed Riku, though Maleficent did not realize that it was Ansem. Ansem had secretly been manipulating the group since the beginning, making him the true leader of the Council.

Kingdom Hearts II

During this game the previous members of the council are divided and do not join up again with Maleficent, though she does try to bring some of them back. Pete also manages to gain new members, though they never actually meet Maleficent. Oogie and Hades briefly join up but then decide they are better off on their own.

  • Maleficent - leader.
  • Pete - Maleficent's errand boy and second in command.
  • Oogie Boogie - revived by Maleficent and briefly follows her orders, until he tells her that he will not help and leaves.
  • Hades - assists Pete until he became a liability.
  • Scar - is given control of the Heartless by Pete and joins.
  • Captain Barbossa - is given control of the Heartless by Pete and joins.
