[From trailer]
Princess Aurora: All the other fairies fly, why don't you?
Maleficent: I had wings once, and they were strong. But they were stolen from me.

Maleficent: I call on those who live in the shadows. Fight with me now!

Maleficent: Royalty. Nobility. Gentry. How quaint. Even the rabble.

Princess Aurora: [after she awakens from her enchanted sleep] Hello, Godmother.
Maleficent: Hello, Beasty.

Prince Phillip: I'm looking for a girl.
Maleficent: Of course you are!

Maleficent: [before kissing Aurora to awaken her from her enchanted sleep] I will not ask your forgiveness because what I have done to you is unforgivable. I was so lost in hatred and revenge. Sweet Aurora, you stole what was left of my heart. And now I have lost you forever. I swear, no harm will come to you as long as I live. And not a day shall pass that I don't miss your smile.

Princess Aurora: Do all the Fair People have wings?
Maleficent: Most do.
Princess Aurora: Then why don't you? All the other fairies fly.
Maleficent: I did, but they were stolen from me. That's all I wish to say about it.
Princess Aurora: What color were they? Were they big?
Maleficent: So big they dragged behind me when I walked. And they were strong. They could carry me above the clouds and into the headwinds. And they never faltered, not even once. I could trust them.

[to King Stefan]
Maleficent: I like you begging. Do it again.

[Maleficent is magically healing damaged trees in the woods]
Aurora: Hello.
[Maleficent turns around to see a smiling toddler Aurora]
Maleficent: Go away.
[Aurora walks closer to Maleficent]
Maleficent: Go. Go away.
[Aurora hugs Maleficent]
Maleficent: I don't like children.

[while pulling a prank on the fairies by creating a rainstorm inside their cottage]
[Diaval looks at her]
Maleficent: Oh, come on! That's funny.


Sleeping Beauty (1959)
[Prince Phillip cuts through the forest of thorns and rides toward King Stefan's castle]
Maleficent: No! It cannot be!
[transforms herself into a whirlwind and appears before Phillip, blocking his path]
Maleficent: Now, shall you deal with ME, O Prince - and all the powers of HELL!
[laughing, she transforms herself into a huge dragon which looms before Phillip; he charges]

[as Phillip escapes the Forbidden Mountain and rides toward King Stefan's castle]
Maleficent: A forest of thorns shall be his tomb! Borne through the skies on a fog of doom! Now go with the curse, and serve me well! 'Round Stefan's castle, CAST MY SPELL!

Maleficent: It's *incredible*! *Sixteen years* and not a *trace* of her! She couldn't have vanished into thin air!
[to her goons]
Maleficent: Are you sure you searched everywhere?
Maleficent's goon: Yep, yep, everywhere. We *all* did.
[the rest of the goons chatter in agreement]
Maleficent: And what about the town? The forests? The *mountains*?
Maleficent's goon: Yeah, we searched mountains and forests and, uh, houses and... uh, lemme see here... and all the cradles.
Maleficent: Cradle?
Maleficent's goon: Yep, yep, every cradle.
Maleficent: *Cradle*!
[to her pet raven]
Maleficent: Did you hear that, my pet? All these years, they've been looking for a baby.
[she bursts out laughing, as do her goons]

Maleficent: Well, quite a glittering assemblage King Stefan. Royalty, nobility, the gentry, and...
[sees the three good fairies, laughs]
Maleficent: ...oh, how quaint - even the rabble.

Maleficent: Listen well, all of you.
[clangs her scepter against the floor]
Maleficent: The princess shall indeed grow in grace and beauty, beloved by all who know her. But... before the sun sets on her 16th birthday, she shall prick her finger - on the spindle of a spinning wheel - and DIE!
Queen: [clutching the baby Aurora] Oh no!
[Maleficent laughs]
King Stefan: Seize that creature!
Maleficent: Stand back, you fools!
[laughing, she disappears in a burst of green fire]
Flora: Don't despair, Your Majesties. Merryweather still has *her* gift to give.
King Stefan: Then, she can undo this fearful curse?
Merryweather: Oh no, Sire!
Flora: Maleficent's powers are far too great.
Fauna: But she can help.

Maleficent: [seeing captured Prince Philip] Well - this is a pleasant surprise. I set my trap for a peasant and LO! - I catch a prince! Away with him - but gently my pets, gently. I have plans for our royal guest.

Maleficent: Oh come now Prince Phillip. Why so melancholy? A wondrous future lies before you - you, the destined hero of a charming fairy tale come true. Behold - King Stefan's castle. And in yonder topmost tower, dreaming of her true love, the Princess Aurora. But see the gracious whim of fate - why, 'tis the self-same peasant maid, who won the heart of our noble prince but yesterday. She is indeed, most wondrous fair. Gold of sunshine in her hair, lips that shame the red red rose. In ageless sleep, she finds repose. The years roll by, but a hundred years to a steadfast heart, are but a day. And now, the gates of a dungeon part, and our prince is free to go his way. Off he rides, on his noble steed, a valiant figure, straight and tall! To wake his love, with love's first kiss. And prove that "true love" conquers all!
[she laughs]

Fauna: Rose!
Flora: Rose!
Merryweather: Don't touch...
Fauna, Flora, Merryweather: ANYTHING!
[their voices echo; Aurora pulls her hand away from the spindle for a moment]
Maleficent: Touch the spindle. Touch it I say!
[Aurora pricks her finger on the spindle; the fairies enter the room, but gasp when they see Maleficent]
Maleficent: You poor, simple fools. Thinking you could defeat me. Me! The mistress of all evil! Well, here's your precious *princess*!
[she pulls her cape back to reveal the now sleeping Aurora; laughing, she disappears]

Maleficent: Fools! Idiots! Imbeciles!
[drives her search patrol away]
Maleficent: [alone with her pet again] Oh, they're hopeless. A disgrace to the forces of evil.
[talking to the raven]
Maleficent: My pet... you are my last hope. Circle far and wide... search for a maid of sixteen with hair of sunshine gold and lips red as the rose. Go, and do not fail me.
[pet flies away]


Kingdom Hearts (2002) (VG)
Hades: That little squirt took down that Heartless! Who'd have thought it?
Jafar: Such is the power of the Keyblade. The child's strength is not his own.
Ursula: Why don't we turn him into a Heartless? That'll settle things quick enough.
Captain Hook: And the brat's friends are the king's lackeys. Swoogle me eyes, they're all bilge rats by the look of them.
Oogie Boogie: You're no prize yourself.
Captain Hook: Shut up!
Maleficent: Enough. The Keyblade has chosen him. Will it be he who conquers the darkness? Or will the darkness swallow him? Either way, he could be quite useful...

Hades: Who invited you to the party? Stay out of this. This is my show.
Maleficent: As you wish. Fight to your heart's content.

Maleficent: Don't steep yourself in darkness too long. The Heartless consume the careless.
Jafar: Your concern is touching, but hardly necessary.

Maleficent: Beware the darkness in your heart. The Heartless prey upon it.

Maleficent: There are seven maidens of the purest heart. We call them the princesses of heart. Gather them together, and a door will open to the heart of all worlds. Within lies untold wisdom.

Maleficent: You poor simple fools. You think you can defeat me? Me, the mistress of all evil?

Riku: [to Maleficent, who is keeled over and gasping for air, having just lost a fight with Sora] Do you need some help?
Sora: [he, Donald, Goofy, and Beast appear] Riku!
Donald Duck: [referring to the object in Riku's hand] Is that -?
Riku: Yes, a keyblade. But unlike yours, mine holds the power to unlock peoples' hearts. Allow me to demonstrate... behold!
[thrusts the keyblade into Maleficent's heart]
Riku: Now, open your heart! Surrender it to the darkness! Become darkness itself!
[withdraws the keyblade]
Maleficent: This is it... ha ha! This power. Darkness. The true darkness!
[turns into a black dragon]

Jafar: [Sora's party had defeated Clayton] What drew the Heartless to that world?
Maleficent: The hunter lured them there. It was his lust for power that was the bait. But it seems the bait was too tasty for his own good.
Oogie Boogie: [laughs] Yeah, he got chomped instead!
Jafar: A weak-hearted fool like him stood no chance against the Heartless. But the boy is a problem. He found one of the Keyholes.
Maleficent: Fear not. It will take him ages to find the rest. Besides, he remains blissfully unaware of our other plan.
Ursula: Yes, the princesses...
Maleficent: They're falling into our hands, one by one.
[Alice is revealed, having been captured]
Maleficent: Speaking of which...


Kingdom Hearts II (2005) (VG)
Maleficent: Do not misunderstand me. I shall have my revenge on you yet.

Saïx: [to Sora] Are you angry? Do you hate me? Then take that rage, and direct it at the Heartless. Pitiful Heartless, mindlessly collecting hearts. And yet they know not the true power of what they hold. The rage of the Keyblade releases those hearts. They gather in darkness, masterless and free... until they weave together to make Kingdom Hearts. And when that time comes, we can truly, finally exist.
Maleficent: What in the world do you think you're prattling on about? Kingdom Hearts belongs to me! The heart of all kingdoms, the heart of all that lives. A dominion fit to be called Kingdom Hearts must be *my* dominion!
Sora: Maleficent, no! No more Heartless!
Maleficent: I do not take orders from you!

Maleficent: [to Pete] You absolute idiot! You've managed to fail at everything! And what's more... you foolishly thought you could take my place while I was away. Well, as of now, you're finished. Mark my words, there'll be no place for you when our time comes! Useless imbecile...
[she leaves]
Pete: But-but... but I...

Maleficent: Why Pete, this castle is perfect. We should acciqure it...
Pete: Well the setup is kinda nice I guess... but what about all the Heartless?

Maleficent: I will be sending them
[Heartless]
Maleficent: to Xemnas, or would you rather fight them yourself?
Pete: Well my dear, I'd rather *run*!

Oogie Boogie: I feel like a million bugs! I really owe you one for this, Maleficent.
Maleficent: Indeed you do, Oogie. Do you remember Sora, Donald, and Goofy?
Oogie Boogie: Do I remember them? Ha! You're too much! I'll never forget what they did to me... What was it they did to me?


Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep (2010) (VG)
Maleficent: [to Terra] Join me. Collect six more hearts of pure light.

Maleficent: I see you, too, wield a Keyblade.
Aqua: How do you know about the Keyblade?
Maleficent: A source of power... a key that opens the hearts of men, of entire worlds... and allows one to obtain anything and everything. Such a power I find most fascinating.


Descendants (2015) (TV)
[Freed from the island, Maleficent crashes Ben's coronation]
Maleficent: I'm ba-ack!

[Maleficent flirts with an immobilized Beast]
Maleficent: Mmm! In another time. In another time.


Mickey's House of Villains (2001) (V)
Maleficent: [singing] Every evil queen gets due respect.


"Once Upon a Time: A Land Without Magic (#1.22)" (2012)
Prince Charming: Where is the beast that reigns over this castle?
Maleficent: That would be me. But 'beast' is so harsh. I prefer 'maleficent'.


"Once Upon a Time: The Thing You Love Most (#1.2)" (2011)
Maleficent: How are you dear?
Evil Queen: I've been fine.
Maleficent: Are you? If it were me I'd be simply tortured watching that flake of Snow so happy. Weren't you about the same age when you were to be married before she ruined it all? Yes, you were.
Evil Queen: Yes, it was about the same age you were when that sleeping beauty got the best of you, my dear Maleficent.
Maleficent: I soldiered on as you will too, hopefully.
Evil Queen: Enough games, you know why I'm here. I need my curse back.
Maleficent: It's not yours any more, a deals a deal. I traded you me sleeping curse.
Evil Queen: Which failed, undone by a simple kiss. Now please return whats mine.
Maleficent: The dark curse? Really? You must know that even it's unholy power can not bring your loved one back from the dead. Have you considered a pet? They can be quite comforting.
Evil Queen: The only comfort for me is Snow White's suffering.
Maleficent: Well it's her wedding night, i doubt she's suffering right now.
Evil Queen: I need that curse. I know you keep it hidden in the orb above your staff.
Maleficent: Hidden for the good of all, old friend. Whoever created that monstrosity makes the two of us look positively... moral. Who did give it too you?


"Once Upon a Time: Mother (#4.21)" (2015)
Lily Page: Seriously? We're gonna let them get away with this?
Maleficent: We can be happy in the future or we can be angry about the past.
Lily Page: Let's do both. Look, all these years since I've figured out what happened, I've been trying to figure out how two humans could get me away from a freakin' dragon... and now I get it, you're a pushover... What did they do? Rub your belly? Give you a dragon treat?
