Sleeping Beauty

In the tale of Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent made her first appearance. The evil fairy showed up at the palace and placed a curse on Princess Aurora saying that on her sixteenth birthday Aurora would prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die. Soon after, three good fairies take Aurora and go into hiding. Maleficent searches for 15 years but couldn't find them.

Finally, she sends her raven to find Aurora. Once Maleficent finds Aurora, she tricks the prince into a trap and kidnaps him. Then, she casts a spell to entrance Aurora into pricking her finger. When this plan succeeds, Aurora fulls into a deep sleep.

The good fairies help the prince to escape Maleficent, and go to the princess. Maleficent puts many obstacles in the way of the prince, but the prince prevails. Infuriated, she turns into her dragon form, but the prince wins the battle and pierces her in the heart with his sword.


Maleficent is in every sense of the word evil. Her hunger for death and destruction are staggering throughout all of her appearances, she is cruel and shrewd, and shows no real affection to anyone other than her pet.


Lightning - Maleficent has shown that she can shoot lightning out of her staff as well as control it from the sky.

Teleportation - She has also shown that she can teleport, turning herself into a green ball of magic and it eventually fades.

Curses - Maleficent also has the ability to due curses, the main one we see is the death curse put on Aurora.
