When it comes to Disney movies, the first thing that comes across one's mind is probably the iconic line "And they lived happily ever after." After all, Disney is known for having great storylines with always satisfying endings. That's why we like these movies so much. Of course, there's another reason why everybody is obsessed with Disney (and no, it is not because of their princes and princesses)—their iconic and relatable villains are the reason. We are not afraid to admit that, from time to time, we rooted more for the villains than for the good guys. And we're sure we were not the only ones. Every single one of us has their favorite Disney villain, and thanks to this quiz, we can guess who that villain is. All you have to do is play a fun game of "Pick or Pass" with a bunch of Disney characters and we'll use our psychic powers to reveal your favorite antagonist.
Just FYI, this quiz includes only Disney's animated movies, so there will be no live-action characters. Oh, and we had to include some iconic characters from Disney and Pixar's joint movies such as "Toy Story", "Monsters, Inc.", and "Inside Out".
Flynn Rider (Tangled)
Even though he is one of the cutest Disney characters ever, Flynn Rider isn't as innocent as one would think. When he first met Rapunzel, he was actually wanted for theft. And we're not talking about any theft—he was actually wanted for stealing the crown of the lost princess (a.k.a. Rapunzel). But that didn't stop Rapunzel from falling in love with him. Of course, later in the movie we see that Flynn is actually a pretty good guy and that he and Rapunzel were meant to be.
If you're a huge Disney fan, then you already know everything there is to know about Merida. But for those who are not that familiar with her, here's a small intro. Merida is a Scottish princess who, ironically, wants to be excluded from the whole "royalty" narrative. Merida, desperately seeking for a way out of an arranged marriage her father set up, goes to see a witch. Unfortunately, the witch tricks her and turns her mother into a bear, and that's where Merida's adventures start.
Beast (Beauty and the Beast)
Beauty and the Beast is one of the OG Disney movies that many of us religiously re-watched as kids. Now, when it comes to Beast, many of us had a crush on him, whether we wanted to admit it or not. And let's not even talk about how cute he looked in his human form. Unfortunately for us, his heart belongs to Belle, but we can't be mad about it because, even though they're a very odd couple, they also make a very good couple.
Pocahontas is one of Disney's most underrated princesses (even though she's not technically a princess, but who cares about that, she'll always be a princess for us). Pocahontas is an indigenous woman who falls in love with a colonist named John Smith. Of course, her tribe is suspicious of colonizers' intentions and turns against them. And even though these two don't end up together, one can still argue that this movie has a happy ending, considering Pocahontas and John kept their people from starting a war.
Stitch (Lilo & Stitch)
"Ohana" means "family". "Family" means nobody gets left behind. But if you want to leave, you can. I'll remember you though." This here is one of the nicest quotes out of all Disney movie released so far, and whether you want to admit it or not, it probably almost made you cry. "Lilo & Stitch" is a beautiful movie about family, love, and acceptance. Every kid and every adult who hasn't seen it really should watch it ASAP. You won't regret it!
Tinker Bell (Peter Pan)
Fairies have always been considered one of the most fascinating magical creatures. That shouldn't come as a surprise though, after all, they're benevolent, usually very, very small, have actual wings, and magical powers. One of the most known Disney fairies is Tinker Bell, also known by her nicknames Tink or Miss Bell. Tinker Bell is one of the main characters in Disney's "Peter Pan", which was released back in 1953. She is Peter Pan's sidekick and almost always joins him on his adventures in Neverland.
Simba (The Lion King)
"The Lion King" is a must-see Disney classic and it follows a young prince lion Simba, the son of King Mufasa and Queen Sarabi, who is supposed to be the heir to the Pride Lands. But of course, this movie wouldn't be considered one of the best Disney movies ever if there wasn't for some tragedy in it. Young Simba was known to be very playful, adventurous and impressionable. Even though he was brave, just like his father, Simba was reckless and a bit arrogant, which nearly cost him and his friend Nala their lives.
Flik (A Bug's Life)
Flik is the main protagonist of Disney/Pixar's 1998 movie, "A Bug's Life." Flik is an inventive ant who is trying to change his colony's way of living, but doing so is not as easy as he thought. Apart from being sort of an outcast in his colony, Flik also has to deal with greedy grasshoppers that come to the anthill every year and eat the food Flik and his colony have gathered. Like most of Disney/Pixar movies, this one is also a must-see with a great message.
Kuzco (The Emperor's New Groove)
Emperor Kuzco is the main character of Disney's 2000 animated movie, "The Emperor's New Groove" as well as its spin-off TV show "The Emperor's New School". He is the ruler of the Kuzconian Empire in Peru. Some people don't know, even though it's very obvious, that Kuzco's name is derived from Cuzco, which was the historic capital of the Inca Empire. Kuzco is a great character because he's so different than other Disney characters. He is arrogant, very self-centered, sarcastic, and way too petty.
Fairy Godmother (Cinderella)
As we mentioned earlier, fairies are usually some of the nicest characters in Disney's animated movies. They are always there to help those who seek help (or to those who don't seek, but need help). Disney's 1950 movie, "Cinderella" features one of them—Fairy Godmother. As you can tell by her name, she is Cinderella's magical fairy godmother who appears when Cinderella loses almost all hope of having a better life. If it weren't for Fairy Godmother, Cinderella would have never gotten her happily ever after.
Grumpy (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs)
Grumpy is one of the characters in the Walt Disney animated movie "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." Just as his name suggests, Grumpy is basically always in a bad mood, being negative, rude and almost always annoyed by other characters. However, unlike most of the Dwarfs, Grumpy is very intelligent and brave. He is genuinely a good person and has a compassionate heart. After all, Grumpy was the one who lead the Dwarfs back to the cottage, where the Queen was trying to poison Snow White.
Pinocchio is the main protagonist of the children's novel "The Adventures of Pinocchio," written by Carlo Collodi in 1883. Then in 1940, Disney released an animated feature movie that was based on this book, and the name of the movie is, you guessed it, "Pinocchio." The story follows Geppetto, a woodcarver who carves a wooden puppet and wishes for him to become a real boy. A fairy makes his wish come true under one condition—the puppet needs to prove that he is "brave, truthful, and unselfish."
Even though she is often described as the most beautiful Disney princess, Jasmine is not all about the looks. She is a strong-willed, rebellious, and most importantly kind girl who is not afraid to say what's on her mind. The first time we see Jasmine in the movie, she rejects a wedding proposal. Later on, she leaves the palace walls even though she's not allowed. And in the end, Jasmine convinces her father, Sultan, to change the laws so that she can marry whomever she wants. A true icon.
King Triton (The Little Mermaid)
We all know King Triton (who is also known as the Sea King) from Disney's 1989 animated movie "The Little Mermaid". As his name suggests, Triton is King of the Sea and Ruler of Atlantica. Even though Triton is a very good and caring father, he often has conflicts with his daughter Ariel, mostly because of her interest in humans and the human world. When Ariel becomes human and leaves the sea world, he blames it on himself and does everything he can to find her. As we said, even though he's not perfect, he's a great father (and a very handsome merman).
Esmeralda (The Hunchback of Notre Dame)
Esmeralda is one of the main characters of Disney's 1996 animated movie, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame". We can all agree that she is one of the most underrated Disney characters of all time. Just think about it, when was the last time you've heard anyone mention her? That's right—never. She is a strong, smart, and brave Romani woman who is not afraid to stand up for herself or for others. And the fact that she was able to outsmart every man who went against her just makes us love her even more.
"Tarzan" is a Disney animated movie from 1999 and it follows Tarzan's life from the moment he was left alone in a jungle where he was raised by a gorilla, to his later encounters with English explorers and of course, Jane Porter, a woman he will fall in love with. Tarzan is mostly known for his great personality—he is brave, loyal and would risk his life in a heartbeat for his family and friends. But we can't deny that he's also one of the most handsome Disney characters ever.
Kida (Atlantis: The Lost Empire)
Kidagakash "Kida" Nedakh is one of the main characters in Disney's animated movie "Atlantis: The Lost Empire". Even though she's not officially a Disney Princess, Kida matches all the criteria of being one: she is literally a princess in the movie (her father is the King of Atlantis), she's a strong female character, who is also very brave and intelligent. There are two theories why she's not classified as a Disney princess: one, because the movie didn't do well on the box office, and two, because she's much older than the rest of Disney princesses (Kida is over 8000 years old).
Even though he was not the star of Disney's "Frozen", Kristoff played a major role in saving Arendelle from an eternal winter. At the beginning of the movie, Kristoff is shown to be a loner who doesn't really like society and being around people. However, later in the movie, after spending some time with Elsa's sister, Princess Anna, we see that he is actually a very kind and selfless person who was willing to risk his own life for Anna's happiness and well-being.
Tiana (The Princess and the Frog)
Tiana is the main character of Disney's 2009 animated feature movie, "The Princess and the Frog". She is a a very talented, intelligent, and hardworking person who is sometimes too focused on her work. As a result, she doesn't get to spend a lot of time with her family and friends. But hey, being a workaholic is not a bad thing. And let's not forget that her dream of opening her own restaurant wouldn't have come true if she wasn't such a hard-worker.
Mufasa (The Lion King)
Even though he dies early on in the movie, Mufasa was a major character in "The Lion King". He was Simba's father, Sarabi's significant other, Scar's brother, and of course, King of the Pride Lands. Mufasa was a kind and respectful towards every creature in his kingdom, but at the same time he was very wise, instructive and courageous. He wasn't perfect, though. His biggest flaw was the fact he couldn't see who's on his side and who's not, and that's exactly what cost him his life.
And we're back in Arendelle! But this time we're here to talk about Princess Anna. She is Princess Elsa's younger sister and one of the main characters of the movie. She is known for being very kind and optimistic, and at the same time also a bit awkward. When Elsa's powers went out of control and covered the whole kingdom with snow and ice, Anna didn't hesitate for a minute before going on an adventure to save Arendelle and re-connect with her sister.
Woody (Toy Story)
Woody is a pull-string cowboy doll who serves as the protagonist of Disney/Pixar's 1995 animated movie "Toy Story" and its sequels. He is the informal leaders of the all the toys in Andy's room. That shouldn't come as a surprise because Woody has all the right personality traits for to be a leader - he is smart, determined, loyal, and most importantly, he would do anything for his friends. Hopefully we'll get to see more of him in "Toy Story 4".
Grandmother Fa (Mulan)
Look, there are many thing in this world that are uncertain, but one thing is for sure— Grandmother Fa from "Mulan" is the sassiest and most iconic Disney character ever. She's adorable and caring, but at the same time also very assertive and spunky. She can provide you with all the right things you need to fight in a war and save China from the Huns (an apple for serenity, a pendant for balance, beads of jade for beauty, and a cricket just for luck). Gotta love her!
Disney's "Hercules" is just one more movie that should be added to the "Most underrated Disney movies ever" list. "Hercules" has everything a movie needs to have in order to be good—an interesting storyline, great jokes, and of course, fun characters. Speaking of characters, we have to give a special shoutout to Zeus. Even though he is King of the Gods, Zeus is pretty chill and almost always has a smile on his face. Oh and he is VERY handsome! Just look at that body!
Nala (The Lion King)
We already had one character from "The Lion King" featured in this quiz, but considering this movie is a classic full of great characters, here's another one. Nala was Simba's best friend since they were just cubs, and later the two fall in love with each other and she eventually becomes his queen. Oh, and we can't forget to credit her with helping Simba save Pride Rock from Scar's tyranny. After all she was the one who brought Simba back. You go, girl!
Prince Naveen (The Princess and the Frog)
"The Princess and the Frog" is a great movie for many reasons, but what really makes this movie stand out is the fact that it wasn't the damsel who needed to be saved here. Nope, the person in distress was actually the prince. Before he was turned into a frog by a voodoo witch doctor, Prince Naveen was seen as a quite spoiled, lazy, and self-absorbed person. Of course, that changed thanks to Tiana who brought out the best of him.
Elastigirl (The Incredibles)
Helen Parr, from Disney/Pixar's 2004 movie "The Incredibles" and its sequel, might look like a typical housewife, but that's not all she is. This lady is an actual superhero who has the ability to stretch any part of her body and change its shapes and sizes (hence her superhero name "Elastigril"). The most important thing for her is her family and their safety, but of course, being a superhero means she also cares for other people as well and doesn't hesitate to risk her life in order to help those who need it.
Robin Hood (Robin Hood)
"Robin Hood" is Disney's twenty-first animated feature movie which was released back in 1973. The movie follows the adventures of Robin Hood, his friend and sidekick Little John, as well as the residents of Nottingham in their fight against Prince John and his excessive taxation. He is often described as a brave and heroic person who steals from the rich and helps the poor people. Robin Hood is kind and generous, and is always ready to stay behind and even risk his life in order to make sure everyone else is safe.
Jane Porter (Tarzan)
We have already (briefly) mentioned Jane Porter in this quiz when talking about Tarzan, but we that just wasn't enough. Jane Porter was an animal researcher who came to Africa in order to study gorillas, hoping to better understand their behaviour and habits. Not only was a good with understanding animals, but she was also very capable of understanding people, even those who grew up far from civilisation, like Tarzan. And although she was an upper-class citizen who could have had a wealthy and spoiled life, Jane realised that her home is not in England but in a jungle, next to Tarzan.
Li Shang (Mulan)
Most Disney fans agree that Li Shang is one of, if not THE most handsome character in all Disney animated movies. Not only is Shang very handsome, but he is also a powerful and efficient leader who successfully defeated the Huns (of course, he couldn't have done it without Mulan herself). And FYI, in case you were hoping to see Li Shang in Disney's live-action adaptation of "Mulan", don't get your hopes up—it is rumoured Shang will not be in it.
Megara, also known as Meg, is one of the main characters of Disney's 1997 animated movie "Hercules". She used to be be Hades' minion, but later she got her freedom back thanks to the demigod Hercules. Just like most female characters in Disney movies, Meg is very independent and free-spirited, yet at the same time she's very witty, snarky, and cynical. Because she was dumped by a boyfriend whose life she saved by selling her soul to Hades, Meg is generally not a very big fan of men.
Prince Eric (The Little Mermaid)
Look, here's the thing—Prince Eric is arguably the best Disney prince, and before you say anything, hear us out. For starters, he is very, vey handsome (great hair, beautiful blue eyes, perfect smile, and a jawline for days—this guy has it all). Apart from his great looks, Eric is also a hopeless romantic who just wants to find true love. And let's not forget the fact that he has a dog! He's an actual dog person! Seriously, it is impossible not to love him!
Joy (Inside Out)
Disney/Pixar's 2015 animated movie "Inside Out" follows five emotions that live inside the mind of an 11-year old girl, Riley Andersen (the emotion you see in this photo is Joy). Apart from being the leader of the girl's emotions, Joy, as her name suggests, is also the essence of Riley's happiness. Her main goal is, obviously, to keep Riley happy and positive. Oh and in case anyone didn't know, Amy Poehler is the voice of Joy, so that's an extra reason to like her.
Peter Pan (Peter Pan)
This Disney character is no ordinary person—he can fight well, he's best friends with a fairy, can fly even though he doesn't have wings, and he doesn't grow up. Yes, I'm talking about Peter Pan from Disney's 1953 animated movie of the same name. Even though he is just a boy, Peter Pan is known for being very adventurous and heroic. Of course, he's not all so perfect—he can get a bit immature and, from time to time, egoistic and conceited.
Cheshire Cat (Alice in Wonderland)
The Cheshire Cat is one of the characters from Disney's 1951 movie, "Alice in Wonderland". Even though he is not the protagonist of this movie, the Cheshire Cat is one of the movie's most intriguing characters. He is a mysterious creature who, most of the time, is trying to either amuse or scare his visitors by disappearing or reshaping his body. Even though the Queen of Heats herself is scared of him, the Cheshire Cat is not a villain nor a hero—he's said to be a completely neutral character.
Baymax (Big Hero 6)
Baymax is a character from Disney's 2014 movie "Big Hero 6", which, by the way, is also way too underrated. Baymax is an inflatable robot who was designed to take care of humans and their health. Needless to say, he is very caring and selfless, but at the same time also a little bit naïve. He is one of those characters you will start liking from the very first moment you see them. Seriously, he's so adorable and likeable that you would want one of these for yourself.
Boo (Monsters, Inc.)
Boo, whose real name is Mary Gibbs, is one of the characters from Disney/Pixar's movie "Monsters, Inc." She is a two-year-old human girl who befriends Sulley, one of the creatures from Monsters, Inc. (which is a company that uses children's screams to create energy). But Boo didn't get scared of Sulley—she thought he was a cute monster. Even though she played one of the major roles in this movie, she couldn't really talk. Apart from some gibberish, the only words she said were "Boo", "Mike Wazowski" and "Kitty".
Carl Fredricksen (Up)
Carl Fredricksen is the main protagonist of Disney/Pixar's movie, "Up". He is an elderly widower who used to be a balloon salesman, but now his occupation is a bit more interesting—he's an adventurer. Well, sort of. When the city decides to take down his home in order to build a skyscraper, Carl ties countless balloons to his house and flies off to South America, a place he and his wife were supposed to go to together before she passed away.
Timon (The Lion King)
Timon is a supporting character in Disney's "The Lion King" and the protagonist of its 2004 prequel/midquel "The Lion King 1½". Timon is a meerkat who was banished from his colony because he refused to work. Relatable much, right? He saved cub Simba, adopted him, and helped him fight Scar. Even though Timon is a bit self-centered and selfish at times, we can't deny that he has a good heart and that he was a good adoptive father to Simba.
Moana is the main character of Disney's 2016 animated movie of the same name. She was born on the South Pacific island of Motunui, and being a Pacific Islander, she obviously loves the seas and voyaging. She is chosen by the ocean itself to go on an adventure that will save her island and her people. Moana is a brave, good-hearted, and fearless character who is ready to sail across the ocean and risk her life for her people without any fear or doubt.
Sulley (Monsters, Inc.)
James P. Sullivan, aka Sulley, is the protagonist of the Disney/Pixar's 2001 movie "Monsters, Inc." and its prequel "Monsters University". We all know that he is a monster whose everyday life includes scaring kids, but we can all also agree that Sulley is pretty friendly and warm-hearted. And even though he was taught that all human children are toxic and fatal for monsters, Sulley disregarded that, risked his life, his job, and his friendships to help one human child.
Mulan is another "Disney princess" who technically wasn't a princess at all. But considering that she saved the whole China from the Huns, we can all agree that she deserves that title. Many people are not aware that this movie was not based on one of the Grimms' brothers' fairy tales like most Disney movies, but on the legendary warrior Hua Mulan. Disney's "Mulan" gives a unique message regarding women's roles in a completely different way than some of the other Disney films. It included such issues as gender inequality and discrimination.
Apart from Aladdin and Princess Jasmine, Genie is one of the main protagonist of Disney's 1992 animated movie "Aladdin" (and for those who don't know, Genie will also return in Disney's live-action remake of the same movie, so yay for that). Genie is one of those characters who is almost always in the "top 5 best Disney characters" lists, but the main reason behind that is the fact that Genie is voiced by none other than the late, great Robin Williams. Will Smith, who is playing Genie in the live-action adaptation really has big shoes to fill.
Lady (Lady and the Tramp)
Many of us agree on the fact that dogs are the best, right? They are so cute, fluffy, and they are literally always there when we need them. It is impossible not to love them, regardless whether they are real or just a character in a Disney movie. Take as an example Lady, a Cocker Spaniel, from Disney's 1955 movie "Lady and the Tramp". How does one not like such an adorable character? But we get it, not everyone is a dog person (shoutout to cat people because cats are also amazing).
Back in 1941 Disney released its fourth animated feature film—Dumbo. This Disney classic follows Jumbo Jr., a circus elephant with comically over-sized ears, who is nicknamed Dumbo by one of the other elephants (because they thought he was dumb). Dumbo's ears are so big that he can actually use them as wings and can therefore fly. Dumbo is one of the most lovable characters Disney has created so far, and the movie itself has a beautiful message about love, friendship, and acceptance.
"The snow glows white on the mountain tonight, not a footprint to be seen. A kingdom of isolation, and it looks like I'm the queen." We have all heard Elsa sing this song at least once, haven't we? Not only does this song have beautiful lyrics and is very, very catchy, but it also, kind of, gives away the plot of the movie. So even if you haven't seen the movie, but you've heard the song, you can guess what the movie is about.
Dory (Finding Nemo)
Dory is a a regal blue tang who's experiencing short-term memory loss, and is one of the main characters in Disney/Pixar's "Finding Nemo". This character was a real hit with the viewers of all ages. After the release of Finding Nemo, Dory's fanbase grew so big that she actually got her own spin-off movie," Finding Dory". Needless to say, the movie was well-received by critics and did amazingly at the box office (it grossed over one billion dollars worldwide).
Edna Mode (The Incredibles)
The forever-iconic fashion designer Edna "E" Mode is a character who appears in Disney/Pixar movie "The Incredibles" and its sequel. By fashion designer, we mean she designs costumes for superheroes. How crazy is that? And apart from designing outfits for almost every superhero, Edna is known for one other thing—being the queen of shade. She basically called Mr. Incredible a bad parent without him even knowing that. Her words were, "Done properly, parenting can be a heroic act… Done properly." We'll just leave it at that.
A long time ago, Mushu was a guardian spirit of the Fa family, but after he failed to protect one Fa family member, he became an incense burner and gong-ringer fo Fa ancestors. But hey, don't feel sorry for him! In "Mulan" he makes up for his past mistakes. Mushu goes on an adventure with Mulan that resulted in them saving the whole China. As his reward for helping her, Mushu gets his old job of being a guardian spirit of the Fa family back.
We started this quiz with one character from "Tangled", and now it is time to end it with another character from the same movie—we chose the one and only, Rapunzel! Long story short, Rapunzel is like the Beyoncé when it comes to Disney princesses. She looks stunning, her hair is on a whole new level (call her Becky with the good hair), and she's not scared to pursue her dream of finally leaving the tower and exploring the outside world.
