|Game(s)||Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance|
|Origin||The Hunchback of Notre Dame|
|Home World||La Cité des Cloches|
Frollo was the first Disney villain confirmed for the game, and was first revealed to appear in the game in a November issue of V-Jump, where he is depicted in a screenshot meeting Sora alongside Phoebus. He is also seen in another screenshot harassing Esmeralda, and the same scene in the Jump Festa 2012 trailer depicts Sora charging towards him with his Keyblade drawn. In the special trailer, covered in an aura of darkness, Frollo condemns Riku as he apparently summons a Dream Eater to smite the youth.
An aged man, Frollo has a long, drawn face and grey hair. He dresses in a dark black robe with purple trim and red inside it. He wears a hat with purple and black stripes. He wears several rings of various gems on his hands. His black clothing signifies his desire to remain pure.
Frollo first made his appearance in The Hunchback of Notre Dame as the main antagonist, Quasimodo's guardian and the self-righteous justice minister who sees his horrific actions to be for the great good and thus tormented by his maddening self-righteousness and narrow views that Gypsies are a plight that must be destroyed. Once such case was unintentionally murdering a gypsy woman on the impression that she stole something. But finding the bundle to be the infant Quasimodo, Frollo is forced by his faith and need of redemption, having killed his mother on the grounds of Notre Dame, to raise the boy while filling his head with lies about his mother abandoning him and discouraging any intent to leave Notre Dame and see the outside world.
Twenty years later, as the story begins, Frollo appoints Phoebus as the new Captain of the Guard prior to attending the annual Festival of Fools where he finds Quasimodo acting against his wishes. It was also there that Frollo meets the Gypsy dancer named Esmeralda whom he develops an obsession for and believes that killing her would redeem himself of his impure thoughts. To that end, he commits various atrocities to capture her at the cost of many lives ruined. However, Quasimodo save Esmeralda and brings her to the cathedral. Furious, Frollo attempts to kill Quasimodo, resulting in a violent struggle in which ends with Frollo holding onto a stone gargoyle before it suddenly breaks off the cathedral and he falls to his death towards the pit of molten copper below.
The Sceptre and the KingdomEdit
Frollo first appeared in The Scepter and the Kingdom, this being his first appearance in the Kingdom Hearts series, but is not considered a canonical appearance.
When Donald transported Sora and Riku to La Cité des Cloches by mistake, they appear out of nowhere in the air and fall sharply on Frollo. When the two young people helps him up, Frollo remains strange because of their bright robes, which were not at that time. That's when one of his guards reveals that both came out of nowhere.
Knowing this, the Judge Frollo declares Sora and Riku as necromancers, so ordered his detention to condemn to the stake. However, Sora and Riku manage to escape Judge Frollo and his guards by Esmeralda, who hides them and brings them to the Cathedral of Notre Dame.
- Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance will be Jim Cummings' first full performance as Claude Frollo.
