Descendants AU is a popular AU (Alternate Universe) within the Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons universe and Rise of the Brave Tangled Frozen Dragons universe. In the AU, Rapunzel, Merida, Hiccup and Jack Frost play roles from Disney Channel's original movie series, Descendants. This can be considered an offshoot to Fairy Tale AU and Dark AU.

About the AU

In this AU, the members of the Big Four are portrayed as characters from Descendants, most commonly as the villain children of the Isle of the Lost and the four main iconic Disney Villains; Cruella De Vil, Jafar, the Evil Queen and Maleficent.

The four (and other such characters) are also cast as the children (or siblings) of the villains from their stories'; as well as the parents of their own descendants. Much like in the EUs of both Frozen Tangled Guardians and The Knights of the Epic Brave Dragons, as Elsa and Anna are sometimes placed as Jack and Rapunzels' daughters while Justin and Mary Katherine are featured as Hiccup and Meridas' children.

The manga books of the Descendants franchise, can even make this AU an alternative with Manga AU. Along with Ever After High AU from how the two franchises have a similar theme one another.

Featured Characters

The Big Four

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III

Hiccup being the heir to Berk (before becoming the chief of New Berk) is casted as Benjamin (who is more commonly known as Ben), the son of Belle and the former Beast, and the young royal that gives four young villains a chance to live among the good. Hiccup has also been cast with the role of a male version of Mal, Maleficent's daughter, since the two both have dragons as their mark and parents that they try to live up to, if you think that it was hard for Hiccup to live up to Stoick the Vast, then imagine what it must be like to be the child of Maleficent; or Drago Bludvist when he is cast as the master/mistress of evil. Hiccup can also be cast as Jay, Jafar's son or as Carlos De Vil, with a dog version of Toothless as Dude and a humanized Red Death as Cruella (while Dragon Island or Outcast Island serves as the Isle of the Lost). Sometime for the Moaniccup pairing, fans cast Hiccup as Harry Hook. Hiccup's former shy personalty could even have a genderbend version of him as Jane.

While fans who have imagined Hiccup's own descendant to have inherited his brown hair, love for dragons, skills in drawing and tinkering, and loves the frill of flying in the open air. The traits that Hiccup's child would have inherited from his or her mother would deepened on who Hiccup is paired up with. Should Astrid be placed as the mother of their child in the AU, then one or both of their children, Zephyr and Nuffink, can serve as Hiccup's descendent child/children; since the Descendants books do have some of the parent Disney characters having more than one child.

Jack Frost

Jack is trouble, light on his feet and charming like Jay, son of Jafar. Fans have also given him the role of Carlos De Vil, son of Cruella, not just for the colours of good and dark Jack, the two have similarities roles. Carlos put his fear of dogs aside when he befriended Dude and Jack becomes close to Baby Tooth, a tooth fairy as he opened up to the guardians. Pitch has been cast as both Jafar and a male Cruella whenever Jack plays the role of one of their sons. Jack is even sometimes portrayed as Ben, for the Jelsa and Jackstrid pairing. While blue being one of his main colors and the bond he forms with Jamie Bennett, has a small group of fans portray Jack as a male Evie.

While fans have imagined Jack's own descendant to have inherited his white hair, his powers over ice and snow and would like forcing on having fun. The traits that Jack's child would have inherited from his or her mother would deepened on who Jack is paired up with.

Merida DunBroch

Merida didn't have a strong bond with her mother, like Mal did with hers and would do anything to prove herself to her. Merida has also been cast as Jay when the demon bear, Mor'du (as his human self) is cast as Jafar. Being the daughter of a queen that cares about her child's image and Merida being an expert of the field that relates to her main skill, could even have her as Evie. While her skills in fencing and having a warrior parent can also portray her as the daughter of Mulan and Shang, Lonnie.

Fans have imagined Merida's own descendant to have inherited her wild, red hair, talent for archery and her bravery. The traits that Merida's child would have inherited from his or her father would deepened on who Merida is paired up with.

Rapunzel Corona

Rapunzel is both beautiful, sweet, and smart like Evie and the two both have villain mothers that take great care of their image. In this AU, Rapunzel is sometimes placed as Gothel's birth daughter, she has also been cast with the role of Mal, while Gothel plays Maleficent. While having an animal friend and learning that her "mother" is wrong about the things that she should be afraid of, could have her as a female Carlos De Vil. One of the jewels on Rapunzel's tiara could possibly serve as her Birthright Jewel. Fans have also cast Rapunzel as Uma, for when Flynn is see as Harry Hook beside her. Along with the Pub Thugs portrayed as Uma's pirate crew, while the Snuggly Ducking pub serves as Ursula's Fish and Chips restraint. After Descendants 3 came out and with fans seeing Rapunzel's black haired, Hurt Incantation self (also known as Hurt Rapunzel in Dark AU) from the Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure episode, "Rapunzel and the Great Tree", as her dark self, a few began to cast her as (D3) Audrey when she decided to become evil, with the stolen Evil Queen’s crown and Maleficent’s scepter in her persuasion.

In the Descendants: Wicked World series Rapunzel has a daughter called Ruby, as well as having another daughter called Anxelin in School of Secrets. This could have fans feature Rapunzel as her Descendants counterpart, in the same way that some have a few of the fandom's Disney characters as the Netizen versions of themselves from Ralph Breaks the Internet, while Kingdom Hearts AU sometimes has them as their KH counterparts. As for the popular Frozen Tangled Guardians EU, however, she is seen as Elsa and Annas' mother, with Jack Frost as their father, and that could also have fans feature Rapunzel has the sisters' mother in the AU.

Extra Characters

Queen Elsa of Arendelle

Fans have Elsa casted as Maleficent in the Maleficent AU for similarities (as well as fans using her original antagonist role, from one of the early layouts of Frozen, in dark crossovers) and its the same with Mal. As Elsa tries to be good, kind queen for the people of Arendelle and to be a good sister for Anna, while Mal tries to a bad and cunning girl for her mother. Fans have also cast her as Evie, which might be due the blue colored clothing that the two wear and being the daughters of queens. While Elsa's original antagonist role in one of the earlier layouts of Frozen could even have fans portray Elsa as Audrey, from when she decided to become evil, with the stolen the queen’s crown and Maleficent’s sceptre in her persuasion, in Descendants 3.

She and Anna can also be cast as Hans's sisters or cousins, or as Jack and Rapunzel's daughters, due to the Frozen Tangled Guardians EU. Fans have also imagined Elsa's own descendant to have inherit her ice magic, light blond hair and her blue eye. The traits that Elsa's child would have inherited from his or her father would deepened on who Elsa is paired up with.

In Frozen II, Elsa's grandfather, King Runeard, is revealed to be the true antagonist of the second film. In which makes Elsa and Anna the granddaughters of a villain.

Princess Anna of Arendelle

Because of the many similarities between the two characters, Anna most commonly plays the part of Evie. Especially when Elsa is portrayed as Mal, beside her. There have also been fans that have cast Anna as Mal.

She and Elsa can also be cast as Hans's sisters or cousins, or as Jack and Rapunzel's daughters, due to the Frozen Tangled Guardians EU. Fans have also imagined Anna's own descendant to have inherit her blue eyes, strawberry blonde hair and the love that Anna has for her family. The traits that Anna's child would have inherited from his or her father would deepened on who Anna is paired up with.

In Frozen II, Anna's grandfather, King Runeard, is revealed to be the true antagonist of the second film. In which makes Anna and Elsa the granddaughters of a villain.

Flynn Rider

Because of the many similarities (charming, light fingered, steals and used to look out for himself) Flynn/Eugene is cast as Jay. Fans also see him as Ben, or as Caption Hook's son, Harry Hook; when Rapunzel is portrayed as either Mal or Uma. While the bad to good bond he shares with his estranged father, could have Eugene as a male Mal, for fun.

In the Descendants: Wicked World series Flynn and Rapunzel have a daughter called Ruby, as well as them having another daughter called Anxelin in School of Secrets. This could have fans feature Flynn/Eugene as his Descendants counterpart, in the same way that some have a few of the fandom's Disney characters as the Netizen versions of themselves from Ralph Breaks the Internet, while Kingdom Hearts AU sometimes has them as their KH counterparts.

Drago Bludvist

Drago has a dragon army by his side, while Maleficent can become one. Fans have also casted him as Hiccup's father when he's Mal.

Mother Gothel

Like the Evil Queen, Gothel cares a great deal about her image and beauty and she'll do the same with Rapunzel's as her birth daughter or when Rapunzel is cast as Evie. She can also be casted as Maleficent, as Rapunzel is sometimes seen as Mal; while fans that have cast Rapunzel as Uma could even have Gothel portrayed as Ursula.

While the novel series of Disney's Descendants, Gothel is one of the villains brought back to life only to be imprisoned on the Isle of the Lost, where she began teaching Selfishness 101 at Dragon Hall before giving birth to her daughter, Ginny Gothel. This could have fans feature Gothel as her Descendants counterpart, in the same way that some have a few of the fandom's Disney characters as the Netizen versions of themselves from Ralph Breaks the Internet, while Kingdom Hearts AU sometimes has them as their Kingdom Hearts counterparts. In the beginning of the third season of the Tangled TV series, however, Gothel is revealed to be the mother of Cassandra, in which would have Ginny as Cass's sister.

Mor’du

Mor'du's history has casted with the part of Jafar and Merida as his daughter; for (nearly) repeating his story and is sometimes seen as Jafar's son Jay.

Pitch Black

Between the roles Jack is cast as, fans have put Pitch between Jafar and a male Cruella De Vil. There have also been has that have cast Pitch as Hades, as he is commonly portrayed as him in Hercules AU and whenever Elsa is seen as Mal. Since Pitch is already a parent and has a daughter (in the Guardians of Childhood book series), she can serve as one of the many VKs on the island prison; while Pitch is one of the villains that was sent to the island.

Violet Parr

Fans have portrayed Violet as Maleficent's daughter Mal. As both girls want to make their mothers proud of them, have long hair, have a connection to purple and had their own kind of trouble at school. Nomanisan Island can serve as the island prison, while Western View Junior High serves as Auradon Prep.

Wilbur Robinson

Fans have portrayed Wilbur is portrayed as Jafar's Jay. As they both do what they can to help their fathers and like to play it cool. Joyce Williams Elementary School can serve as Auradon Prep.

Penny Forrester

Fans have portrayed Penny is portrayed as the Evil Queen's daughter Evie. As both girls were surrounded by people that had told them what to do, what to think, agree with what they're plans are for them and how they should look. Bolt is sometimes cast as the Campus mute Dude, which could have Penny as a female version of Carlos De Vil.

Hiro Hamada

Fans have commonly portrayed Hiro as Cruella De Vil's son Carlos De Vil. Bolt or a dog version of Baymax is sometimes cast as the Campus mute Dude, beside him. Akuma Island can serve as the island prison, while San Fransokyo Institute of Technology serves as Auradon Prep.

Zarina

Since Zarina was the (former) antagonist in The Pirate Fairy and had spend time with Captain James Hook, she can easily be cast as the captain's daughter, CJ Hook or could be made CJ's sister. Zarina could also be portrayed as Ursula's daughter, Uma, for being a leader of a pirate crew and could even be placed as one of the pirates in Uma's crew, along side the son of Captain Hook.

Moana Waialiki

Moana is sometimes portrayed as Ursula's daughter, Uma. As they both wear a shell-like necklace that held a powerful item and had belonged to a female relative of theirs, lead a crew of sailors and are seen as girls of water. Moana's role as Uma can place Maui with the role of Harry Hook. There have also been fans that have Moana as Celia Facilier, possible due to their similar hair styles, or have her as Audrey.

Lady Caine

Since Lady Caine's father was a petty thief and one of the criminals that were arrested in suspicion of kidnapping Corona's princess, he could easily serve as one of the many villains that was banished to the Isle of the Lost; which portrays Caine as a Villain Kid (VK for short).

Caine could even be portrayed as Uma or one of the pirates in her crew, should Rapunzel be cast as Mal. As both Uma and Caine are leaders of their own pirate crew and with fans seeing Rapunzel and Caine having a similar rivalry as Mal and Umas'.

Heather

Because Heather has spent time on the side of Hiccup's enemies in the DreamWorks Dragons TV series and later sided with the Dragon Riders, she and possibly her brother, Dagur could serve as Villain Kids (VKs for short) living on the Isle of the Lost (as the Berserker Tribe was once at war with Berk); and were later given the chance to attend Auradon Prep. Since her father, Oswald the Agreeable was once known as Oswald the Antagonistic, he could easily serve as Heather and Dagurs' villain parent; and the reason why the two are villain kids.

Heather could even be portrayed as Mal. As Hiccup is sometimes seen as Ben and with some How to Train Your Dragon fans pairing Hiccup x Heather together; along with Heather's history of being an "antagonist" and Hiccup and the other riders later welcoming her as one of their own, and allowing her to stay on their island. There have also been fans who prefer to have Heather as either Lonnie or Evie.

Kristoff Bjorgman

Should Kristoff be placed as one of the four main VKs, it would most likely be Carlos De Vil. As both characters are close with an four-legged animal, that stays by their side and do what they can to help their friends, as well as fans featuring Sven as a dog in some modern crossovers. Anna's commonly given role as Evie in the AU and the Kristanna pairing could even cast Kristoff as Dopey's son and Evie's first friend at Auradon Prep, Doug.

Prince Hans of the Southern Isles

Since Hans is sometimes placed as Gaston in Beauty and the Beast AU, the Descendants AU can allow Hans to be portrayed as his son, Gil. In the book series of Descendants, Gaston has two other sons that he named after him, so Hans could even be cast as either one of them as well.

Fans have imagined Hans's own descendant to have inherited his red hair, along with his talents for swordplay and manipulating people. The traits that Hans's child would have inherited from his or her father would deepened on who Hans is paired up with.

Stalyan

Since Stalyan's father, the Baron, is a feared thief crime lord, he could easily serve as one of the many villains that was banished to the Isle of the Lost (with his minions like Anthony the Weasel); which portrays Stalyan as a Villain Kid (VK for short).

Stalyan could even be portrayed as Uma, with younger versions of her father's men or their children as her pirate crew, should Rapunzel be cast as Mal. As both Uma and Stalyan are the children of villains, using the power of force (with magic or blackmailing) to get someone to marry them and with fans seeing Rapunzel and Stalyan having a similar rivalry as Mal and Uma's.

Honey Lemon

The fan theory of Honey Lemon being Rapunzel's descendent, due to both girls having long blond hair, green eyes and posses art skills, can have her as a daughter of Rapunzel (from the Descendants franchise). Which could also cast her as one of Rapunzel's known daughters, like Ruby from Descendants: Wicked World or Anxelin from School of Secrets. Fans have also cast Honey Lemon as Mal and Evie.

While being a Disney character can have Honey Lemon as a mother of her own descendant, that fans sometimes come up for her. Her child would most likely inherited her blond hair, green eyes, cheerful personality and skills in chemistry. The traits that Honey Lemon's child would have inherited from his or her father would deepened on who Honey Lemon is paired up with.

Tadashi Hamada

For the Tadahoney and Tadelsa parings, fans portray Tadashi as Ben.

Maui

When fans portray Moana as Uma, Maui is sometimes cast as Harry Hook beside her.

Vanellope von Schweetz

Because of Vanellope's choice to leave her "always the same" life in Sugar Rush and starting a new thrilling life in Slaughter Race, fans began to theorize that Vanellope's childish appearance had been changed into a punk-like style, as well as her ageing into an older teenage, so the young racer could fit in better with the game's harsh-like elements and the rundown style and setting of its city. This can help fans place Slaughter Race Vanellope as a Villain Kid (VK) from the Isle of the Lost, where King Candy/Turbo could serve as her villain parent. As many VKs dress in a punk-like style.

There have also been fans that have cast an older version of Vanellope as Freddie Facilier, as they both have dark hair. While her young age could have Vanellope as Dizzy Tremaine.

Cassandra

Cassandra's dark actions and transformation at the end of season two and throughout season three of Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure, can easily have her as Audrey when she decided to become evil, with the stolen the queen’s crown and Maleficent’s sceptre in her persuasion, in Descendants 3. In the beginning of the third season of the Tangled TV series, Cass is revealed to be the biological daughter of Gothel, in which would have Ginny Gothel, the daughter of Gothel's Descendants counterpart, as Cassandra's sister. Cass wanting her mother's love as a child could even portray her as Mal, since Gothel is sometimes cast as Maleficent. In some fanfics, however, Cass isn't imprisoned on the Isle, despite her heritage. Instead, she is generally given the same role she had in the series, being the Captain of the Royal Guard’s adoptive daughter and watching over Rapunzel, although she can be placed as a bodyguard for Rapunzel to make sure she enjoys her time in Auradon.

Suits of Armor

Since they are living suits of armor, fans can easily have them as the suit of armor knights that an evil Audrey brings to life in order to make them fight Mal and her friends in Descendants 3.

King Frederic of Corona

Since Corona sends its criminals to an island prison, after they served time in the castle's dungeon, and the way that people like Lady Caine hates Corona's King for locking up many of its criminals when his daughter was kidnaped, it can easily have fans portray King Frederic as King Beast.

Mavis Dracula

Fans have portrayed Mavis as Evie.

Arthur "Artie" Pendragon

Giving villains a chance to be good before he was crowned king, can easily portray Artie as Ben.

Jonathan

Since Mavis is sometimes cast as Evie, Jonavis fans can easily portray Johnny as Doug.

Chloé Bourgeois

The times that Chloé has acted terrible towards those she doesn't like (mostly Marinette and her half-sister), while being her kind of nice towards Adrien and how she became close to becoming good in season two and three, before Hawk Moth set events to bring one of the on and off Miraculous holders to his side, it can easily portray Chloé as Audrey.

Queen Regina

Since Regina is the Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs version of the Evil Queen, fans could have her as the Disney Descendants version of the Evil Queen. Just as Snow White (of Red Shoes) could serve as the Disney Descendants version of the said princess, since both Regina and Snow White/Red Shoes are based on the main antagonist and titled princess from the original Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs fairy tale, just as the original 1937/1938 Disney film is part of the Disney Descendants world.

Stoick the Vast

The times that fans have cast Hiccup as Ben, his father Stoick can serve as the Descendants version of Beast.

Valka

The times that fans have cast Hiccup as Ben, his mother Valka can serve as the Descendants version of Belle.

Angry and Red

The two girls being a pair of thieves who turn over a new leaf could have them as a pair of Villain Kids from the Isle of the Lost who were given a chance to live in Auradon. The times that Rapunzel has been cast between Mal and Evie can also have Angry/Kiera as Celia Facilier while Red/Catalina serves as Dizzy Tremaine, since the two girls appear to be close like the two former thieves are.

Astrid Hofferson

The events of the first HTTYD film having Astrid as Berk's young popular future Viking warrior, before Hiccup steals her spotlight and the way she acted when she saw how Heather got everyone to eat out of her hands before they became friends, has inspired a few fans to cast her as Audrey. There have also been times when Astrid is seen as Mal or a female version of Ben.

Andy Davis

Andy's Toy Story 3 appearance (and age) can easily portray him as Ben.

Isabela Madrigal

The way that Isabela was forced to live her life as someone with a pretty face and to perfect with her image, as well as her displaying some cruel-like actions towards Mirabel before they became closer, can have her as either Evie or Audrey.
