The Trickmaster is a heartless summoned by Mirage to distract our heroes while Maleficent delivered Alice to the villain leage HQ.
The sneaky Trickmaster was a Heartless that Sora and his friends encountered in Wonderland while searching for the missing Alice. Throughout most of the adventure in Wonderland, Trickmaster is referred to as the shadows or as the darkness (especially by the Cheshire Cat).
Trickmaster briefly appears as a figment of Sora's memory. It stole the Queen's memory, and she accused Alice of the crime.
The Trickmaster also appears to Riku, as a figment of his memory and a representation of the darkness within him.
It seems he is the source of the Bug Block corruption and is the one who stole everyone's memories in Wonderland.
A Trickmaster is a bizarre Heartless with spindly legs resembling scissor jacks, arms that appear and sound like they're made of paper, and a head that is made of several segments balanced of top of each other. Each of these segments sports its own face—though all of the faces have the same glowing yellow eyes and jagged mouths—and they alternate in color from red to black. Its arms are black and it often juggles clubs with zig-zagging, purple and lavender stripes on them. It wears black armor with large, red shoulder pads, a black codpiece, and has a very thin and small red body. The upper halves of its legs are red, while their lower halves are black. Its feet are black, flat, and curl at the tips. Much of its upper body and head sport gold highlights.
In Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, the red sections of the Trickmaster's body become lavender, the black sections become red-violet, save for its arms, which become a dark shade of steel blue. Its clubs become striped with black and white, and its feet and the gold tinges on its body and head both become yellow with a slight green tint.
The Trickmaster's name references the Heartless's ability to skilfully juggle its clubs in its hands while attacking.
Role in the series
The Trickmaster reprises its role from the game, only to be defeated again through an alliance between Sora, Spongebob, and the Wonderlandian inhabitants.
