Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories

Sora's Story

A pirate who holds a grudge against Peter Pan. Hook kidnapped Wendy to lure Peter out. Normally proud, Hook falls to pieces the moment the crocodile that took his hand shows up.


A pirate of Neverland. Hook appeared before Riku as a token of the indelible darkness in his heart.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep

Peter Pan (1953)

A pirate of Never Land, and Peter Pan's archenemy. He tricked Terra into guarding his treasure, but lies never last, and Peter made off with the treasure chest anyway.

For all his attempts to give "that cowardly sparrow" his comeuppance, he has yet to succeed.

His usual swagger is replaced by terror at the very sight or sound of the crocodile.


Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep

Captain Hook wreaks havoc in the world of Neverland ten years before Sora's visit to the world. He is attacked along with Smee by a group of Unversed while he is trying to move his treasure to a safe location until Terra comes and rescues them. Hook tells Terra that a young boy has been tormenting him for quite some time, attempting to steal "the light" inside Hook's chest.

Terra at first believes that the boy may be Vanitas, but Hook tells him it is someone called Peter Pan, and requests Terra to take the chest to Skull Rock and guard it against Peter. Once they arrive, Smee informs Hook of a shooting star which landed not far from where they are.

Hoping to find more treasure, Hook leaves the chest in Terra's care and departs to find the shooting star. He finds it, and captures Tinker Bell, as well. Although he is confronted by Ventus, Hook escapes with Tinker Bell and reunites with Terra inside Skull Rock, showing him the imprisoned fairy, who he plans to use to trap Peter Pan. However, Terra frees Tinker Bell, having learned the truth about Hook during a brief fight with Peter Pan. Just as Hook prepares to engage Terra, the Crocodile appears and Hook makes a run for it. Shortly afterward, Ventus finds him waiting at the Cove, wondering if Peter Pan has been defeated yet. Ven defeats Hook in battle, ending by knocking him into the water, where he is chased off by the Crocodile.

During Aqua's storyline, the Lost Boys tell Aqua that Hook has stolen the Lost Boys' treasure once again. Aqua, Peter and the Lost Boys eventually track Hook down, but as Hook gloats, he opens the treasure chest only to find nothing but the Boys' toys and other stuff (among them Ventus's Wooden Keyblade). As he curses, the Crocodile appears and he runs away.

During the credits, Hook's hat is stolen by Peter while he spied on them.

Kingdom Hearts

In Kingdom Hearts, Captain Hook has joined forces with Maleficent to use the Heartless to defeat Peter Pan. His vessel is used as a transport for Riku to Hollow Bastion. Sora, Donald, and Goofy arrive on his ship in Neverland. They team up with Peter Pan, who is trying to free Wendy, who has been imprisoned on the ship. They do battle with Hook and manage to beat him, throwing him off his own ship and into the water, where the Crocodile chases him off.

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories

Hook makes an appearance in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories as a figment of Sora's memories. He met his demise when Sora challenged him with Peter Pan.

Hook also appears in Riku's story-line, as a figment of his memory and a representation of the darkness inside him.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, the island of Neverland is explored, along with the previous places on Captain Hook's ship. Captain Hook and Smee are seen digging holes around the island, searching for treasure. However, instead of treasure, they find Heartless, who are attracted to the darkness that comes from Captain Hook's greed. Eventually, it is revealed that Pete is the mastermind behind it. Pete had created a series of maps leading to Heartless that Hook would spawn to increase his army.

When Smee digs up the final hole, Captain Hook is ecstatic that this one has real treasure. Just when he is about to collect his rewards, Hook's greed turns the treasure into a Heartless. Luckily, Roxas is there to dispatch the giant Heartless, allowing Captain Hook to escape to his ship. In the end however, his greed comes full circle when the Heartless crashes into his ship.

In one failed attempt, Hook captures Tinker Bell, and Roxas saves her. This angering Hook, shot his greed upward.


Captain Hook is very arrogant and full of himself, and gets angry if someone insults him. He tends to hold a grudge against Peter Pan for stealing his hand and feeding it to the crocodile. In the Disney movies, he is portrayed as an excellent manipulator and liar. Three examples are when he manipulated Tinker Bell in the first movie and Jane, Wendy's daughter in the second movie, and Terra in Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep.

He is cowardly and sometimes acts like a wimp, particularly when he hears the sound of the Crocodile coming close by. However, he is also an excellent sword fighter and a bomb expert, which makes him quite a challenge for Sora and Ventus when they fight him.

Physical appearance

Captain Hook is a thin man with curly, black, shoulder-length hair that drapes over his shoulders, a large, hooked nose, a thin, black mustache that angles upward sharply, and a large chin. He wears a frilly, white shirt underneath a red coat with gold lining and maroon cuffs. Each of these cuffs sports two yellow buttons. He also wears an orange sash over his right shoulder that holds his sword scabbard at his left hip.

Hook wears maroon pants and white, knee-high socks, as well as black shoes with a pink circle decorating each one. The tongues of his shoes are enormous, reaching halfway up his shins. He wears a large, maroon hat with a huge, white feather stuck in it. He carries a rapier with a gold handle and guard as a weapon.


He first appeared in Disney's Peter Pan. His role is the same in the movie as it is in the games. He is the main antagonist of the film and tries to seek revenge on Peter Pan for causing him to lose his hand to the Crocodile.

In the original book, Captain James Hook was the Pirate Captain of the Jolly Roger. His origins are all but unknown, only showing that he was a school teacher and a sword champion before his life of crime. Hook came to Neverland because he thought that there would be treasure, and he was right as the book makes reference to Peter Pan and the Lost Boys having fun by stealing his treasure and making him find it all over again. Hook also made references to "Good Form", something he picked up in his teaching days.

Whenever he fights Pan, he always tries to make the fight to "Good Form" as a habit. But when the fight gets slower, he will try to win by tricking Pan. Peter would call him on it by saying "Bad Form", but Hook would always find a way of making it good again, usually by saying his life was at risk. One point that the game doesn't use is how cruel Hook really is. This point is made both in the book and in the 1953 film when Hook shoots one of his men. The Disney film made this a little child safe by making Hook get annoyed with his singing. In the book, Hook just shoots him outright, just to have a little fun.
