|“||You poor, simple fools! You think you can defeat me?! ME, the mistress of all evil!?||„|
|~ Maleficent before engaging Sora|
Maleficent is a major antagonist in the Kingdom Hearts series. She is an evil fairy who made her first appearance in Disney's Sleeping Beauty. She seeks to gain control over all the worlds and spread darkness throughout them. She is introduced in Kingdom Hearts as the leader of a band of villains from multiple worlds who seek to conquer Kingdom Hearts and thus rule all worlds.
To this end, they assist the Heartless in capturing the seven Princesses of Heart and devouring the hearts of the worlds. However, Sora and his allies manage to thwart her plans by defeating her cohorts and eventually the witch herself. Other games in the Kingdom Hearts series depict her initial rise to power and her later attempts to regain it, and while other Disney antagonists rarely have any significance outside of their original worlds, Maleficent's influence almost always extends throughout the worlds.

In combat she is easily one of the most powerful magic wielders in the entire series, quickly casting powerful spells like Meteor and is only rivaled by the likes of Aqua and Xehanort in this regard. However, she suffers from an incredible superiority complex, always looking down upon her foes and underestimating their power and potential, which has led to her defeat on numerous occasions.
