They are instructed to find Princess Aurora even after 16 years; due to their stupidity they still think they are looking for a baby. Enraged at this incompetence, Maleficent brutally attacks them with dark magic. Later on, they learn Aurora dwells at Flora, Fauna and Merryweather's cottage and seek out to capture her. Instead, they abduct Prince Phillip who was visiting Aurora. They take him to the Forbidden Mountains to hold him captive. As Flora, Fauna and Merryweather arrive and free Phillip, Diablo and the Goons attempt to stop them in their tracks. However, due to the fairies' magic, their weapons were transformed into harmless things.
The Goons are seen crossing past Eddie Valiant in the Maroon Cartoon studio lot in the beginning scene of the film.
The Goons were cameo characters in the show, mostly appearing in crowd scenes. Their most notable appearance is in the episode "Halloween with Hades", where Hades seems them being scolded by Maleficent, who strikes them with her staff. They are also present in Mickey's House of Villains.
Video game appearances
They are first seen in Ventus's scenario when he rushes at them when they guard the hall housing Aurora's captive heart. When Aqua is helping Prince Phillip escape, hundreds of goons came to stop them, but none were successful.
After the events of the game, they are never seen again in other games of the continuity. This is largely because Maleficent learned to summon and control the much more powerful Heartless, and thus favored them instead of her previous servants, leaving them to their own endeavors in Enchanted Dominion.
As minions to one of the most popular Disney Villains, the Goons are featured in a few spots of the park, including live entertainment.
At Walt Disney World, the Goons are enemies in the game Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. Here, Maleficent is revived from the dead by Hades and rallies together her minions to stop the park guests from foiling her plans. The pig-like Goon battles the guests at the start of the mission, but is soon defeated.
