- "We hope for your safe return."
- —Queen Minnie
Queen of Disney Castle, ruling in Mickey's absence. I, Jiminy Cricket, am accompanying Donald and Goofy as the royal chronicler at her request. Queen Minnie is more concerned than anyone about the king's disappearance.
Minnie made her screen debut in "Steamboat Willie" (1928).
Kingdom Hearts II
Plane Crazy (1928)
Queen of Disney Castle.
She is ruling in Mickey's absence. At her request, I'm tagging along with Donald and Goofy as the Royal Chronicler.
Queen Minnie is quite concerned about the King, but she knows in her heart that he'll be all right.
Kingdom Hearts III
Steamboat Willie (1928)
Queen of Disney Castle, who reigns over the kingdom while King Mickey is away.
Queen Minnie and Daisy Duck go over to the flowery courtyard, where they see Donald Duck fussing with Goofy about something top secret. They demand an explanation for that, so he hands over the letter he found in Pluto's mouth from King Mickey. After that, she has them follow the king's lead, worrying for all of them as well as Chip and Dale, who are the engineers for the Gummi Ship. From there on, she rules the kingdom on her own.
She is the one who sent Jiminy as their royal chronicler.
Kingdom Hearts II
Prior to Sora, Donald, and Goofy's visit, black rose thorns suddenly appear in the Hall of the Cornerstone where the Cornerstone of Light is kept. Soon after Heartless begin appearing in the castle and that opens the pathway to Disney Castle.
When Sora and the others visit Disney Castle, they find out that it is in danger because of Maleficent and Pete, who are threatening the castle by changing the past. Sora escorts Minnie to the king's throne, where a secret entrance lie for the castle construction site in the past (Timeless River).
After the castle is safe again, Queen Minnie continues to protect it.
During the end credits, she is seen reunited with King Mickey, holding hands and noses touching each other.
After Mickey left on his quest, Minnie decided to receive magic lessons from Yen Sid in order to protect her world.
Minnie does not have many offensive techniques, unlike the the other support characters, but she can fire a white sphere of light when she is under enemy attack. These spheres are very similar to the ones King Mickey fires when summoned by Riku in Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories.
Together, she and Sora can use the powerful "Faith" reaction command, which temporarily banishes all Heartless in range, or defeat them if they are wounded enough. Even though she lacks power, she is strangely one of the most useful assistant characters in the game.
She has also shown the ability to seal rooms in hopes of keeping out unwanted visitors, like she did with the Throne Room, but the Darkness found a way to seep into the room anyway. Yen Sid's lessons have made the Queen able to protect Disney Castle by herself and has also made her able to hold her own in battle if need be.
- The original Minnie Mouse is not seen in Timeless River, suggesting that she wasn't present back in the early days of Disney Castle. However, it is most likely that the creators had no reason to present her in her original form, as Minnie had been created at the time of the original Steamboat Willie cartoon the world is mostly based on.
- In Kingdom Hearts, when you watch Queen Minnie in full view in the journal, you can't make her turn, unlike all the other characters.
- In real life, Minnie's English voice actress, Russi Taylor, was married to Mickey's voice actor, Wayne Allwine. Because Allwine had passed away, she was widowed until her death in 2019.
- Queen Minnie's Wedding Ring functions as the key to the Cornerstone of Light.
- In Kingdom Hearts, whenever Minnie turns around, her ears remain a rounded shaped so they are constantly facing the screen, just like in Disney cartoons (the same rule applies to Mickey, who also has rounded ears when he appears at the end of the game, as in the cartoons). However, in Kingdom Hearts II (and all other games afterward), their ears stay in the same position whichever way they are facing (similar to how they appear in Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas).
