Queen of Hearts
The Queen of Hearts was an intra-world villain that appeared in a major role in Wonderland. Despite insisting on Alice being decapitated for trying to steal the Queen of Hearts's heart, the Queen of Hearts was apparently in no way associated with Maleficent. Also, as she was not entirely evil, the Queen of Hearts is not completely a villain, even though she and her Card Soldiers are bosses.
She accuses Alice for attempted theft of her heart in a trial. When Alice is ordered to be executed, Sora, Donald, and Goofy intervene to convince The Queen of Hearts that Alice was innocent. The Queen of Hearts does not believe them, but agrees to free Alice if they can find evidence for her innocence. Although they find evidence, with help from the Cheshire Cat, the Queen of Hearts refuses to release Alice, and her Card Soldiers hoist Alice high above the courtyard using the Crank Tower. Sora destroys the Crank Tower in order to free Alice, but she is instead kidnapped by the Heartless. The Queen of Hearts declares a ceasefire with Sora, Donald, and Goofy, so that she can find Alice.
The Queen of Hearts appears in Castle Oblivion as a figment of Sora's memory. In the memory recreation of Wonderland, the Queen of Hearts accuses Alice of stealing her memory and sentences her to death. In order to distract the Queen, Sora claims to be the "true thief", and the Queen has her Card Soldiers attack him. Sora defeats them and goes off to find the real culprit, but even after defeating the offending Heartless, the Queen still refuses to believe that Alice is innocent. Fortunately, Alice's quick thinking pacifies the Queen of Hearts and no one has to lose their head.
The Queen of Hearts appears in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days as well, this time she sends her Card Soldiers looking for three Heartless that startled her. The Card Soldiers then come back without finding the three Heartless then, she gets furious. On another visit to Wonderland, it shows the Queen of Hearts is still looking for the Heartless from the last visit still being unable to find them.
The Queen appears in this game during the third episode and it seems that her memories were stolen again. She sends her Card Soldiers against Sora because she thinks that he stole them.
The Queen of Hearts is a large woman dressed in regal attire and is usually seen carrying a small wand with a red heart on the tip. The Queen's collar is white and very tall, reaching her ears. Her gown has white lining (rather like the border of a playing card), with the rest of it being colored red and black. The left half of her dress has a short, black sleeve with a red cuff, a red abdomen, with everything below that being black. The right side is identical, but with inverted colors; a red sleeve, black cuff, black abdomen, and red lower half. She also wears a second dress or skirt with a similar split design, the left side being an alternating thick black line, thin yellow line pattern, while the right side is identical, but with inversed colors. The right side of this second skirt is actually a darker shade of yellow than the left, appearing more gold. The Queen of Hearts also has a round nose, gold earrings, and a small gold crown on her head. Her hair is black and tied into a tight bun on the back of her head with a red ribbon, though a few loose bangs dangle in front of her forehead.
The Queen of Hearts is a foul-tempered monarch who is very quick to judgment at the slightest offense. She is very demanding of her subjects and more so of her soldiers. The Queen of Hearts is emotionally dynamic; she is happy and jokeful one moment, then rude and annoyed the next.
The Queen of Hearts first appeared as a very short-tempered, selfish, and bossy character form Lewis Carrol's book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The "Queen of Hearts" did in fact have a husband, the King of Hearts; he was more merciful than his wife, pardoning some of the sentenced, though being eager to behead the Cheshire Cat and pronounce the Knave of Hearts guilty of theft. Her record for all beheadings would be countless, because it was her way of solving any problem encountered, no matter how minor. However, the griffon Alice encounters later during the story claims that it is "all their fancy" and that nobody is ever eventually beheaded.
The (first) Disney adaptation keeps her classic characterization, even intensifying it. To make her fits of rage seem even more prominent, her husband is contrast-characterized as tiny and uninfluential. Her card soldier servants are terrified of her.
She may also draw some amount of inspiration from the Red Queen, a character from the sequel novel, Through the Looking Glass and what Alice found there, often abbreviated as Through the Looking Glass.
