Chernabog's minions are minor characters in the Night on Bald Mountain/Ava Maria sequence of Walt Disney's Fantasia.


Physical Description

They come in LOTS of different shapes and sizes.


Chernabog's minions appear to be quite evil, cunning, dark, and mischievous for their personality.



During the Night on Bald Mountain sequence from Fantasia, Chernabog summons numerous ghosts, demons and monsters from the graveyard of the village which Bald Mountain overlooks. They are supposedly to represent the pagan religions interpreting them as evil. Being summoned by him, they transformed into animals for Chernabog's delight as he throws them into the fire. With his own powers, he reveals that they are as disposable as they look, burning them in his own hellish flames. They, like Chernabog, are vanquished when the morning arrives.


The scene from Night on Bald Mountain is represented as Chernabog sends his army of demons to ruin Mickey Mouse's imagination under the orders of the Evil Queen. We see the face of a skull, a witch, and many other phantoms. They were destroyed in the final battle between Maleficent and Mickey Mouse, restoring the powers of Light.

The Black Cauldron

One of the phantoms riding a demonic horse makes a cameo appearance as the Horned King in one of Hen Wen's visions.
