Disney Infinity's characters have abilities that go beyond the miniscule details mentioned on the back of their packaging. Every single character gets his or her own in-game skill tree, allowing you to upgrade their power, speed, and moves.

We've assembled the following guide to the Disney Infinity 3.0 characters and their best hidden abilities that you're going to want to unlock. Some abilities are more powerful (or just more fun) than others, so if you're on a budget, use this guide to help you decide which characters are your must-haves.

Unless stated otherwise, all of these abilities require leveling-up to unlock.

Something Disney Interactive added for Disney Infinity 3.0's characters is a high jump ability for every new character. Force-wielding characters have Force Jump while classic and non-Force characters have a less-powerful but still upgraded Athletic Jump. We strongly recommend this upgrade in all cases, as the ability to jump higher always comes in handy.

Note: this guide covers only the figures that have been released at the time of this writing. Many more are yet to come (such as Darth Vader, pictured above), and we'll update you on those characters' abilities when they're released.

The Clone Wars Crew

Based on their appearances on the TV show Star Wars: The Clone Wars, these are the folks that work out-of-the-box with the Twilight of the Republic Playset.

Note that all four Jedi characters come with the Force Dash ability already built-in. As in, no leveling-up is required. Just pull the right trigger on your controller and they'll dash forward a short distance at lightning speed.

Anakin Skywalker

• Jedi Reflexes » Health & Defense
This Jedi ability automatically deflects blaster shots with Anakin's lightsaber. The only catch is that you have to be facing the direction that the shots are being fired from for it to work. Requires quite a bit of leveling-up to reach on the skill tree.

• Sense Your Surroundings » Force Ability
This special move unique to Anakin allows him to use the Force to pull up a chunk of nearby ground and throw it at an enemy.

• Power of the Force » Force Finisher
Anakin's finishing move uses the Force to pull multiple enemies toward him, and then repel them with great strength. (All four Twilight Jedi have a "Power of the Force" move, but the actions they create are different for each.)

Ahsoka Tano

• Jedi Reflexes » Health & Defense
Auto-deflects incoming laser fire. Must be facing enemy shooter.

• Lightsaber Throw » Force Ability
Ahsoka is the only character with the ability to throw her lightsabers at enemies. They immediately return afterward. Can be leveled up to deal greater damage.

• Spinning Salvation » Force Finisher
Ahsoka has two finishing moves, but the first must be unlocked before you can reach the second. This one is a fast lightsaber attack that has her quickly twirl and slice through anything in her path.

• Power of the Force » Force Finisher
Pick up enemies with the Force and smash them into the ground.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

• Jedi Reflexes » Health & Defense
Same as above. Blocks incoming fire if facing it.

• Force Confusion » Force Ability
Obi-Wan's special move confuses enemies into attacking each other.

• Power of the Force » Force Finisher
This finishing move stops enemies in their tracks, stunning them with the Force. Follow-up quickly with lightsaber attacks and you can wipe most of them out fairly easily.


• Jedi Reflexes » Health & Defense
Uses Yoda's lightsaber to automatically deflect incoming blaster fire as long as he's facing the shooter.

• Master In Motion » Force Ability
Yoda bounces between numerous targets at lightning speed, attacking each one.

• Power of the Force » Force Finisher
Creates a Force whirlwind that spins and damages all nearby targets.

Those Rebellious Rebels

Who's up for a little trivia? The four Star Wars Rebels characters that are playable in Disney Infinity sport designs that are based on their appearances in the show's second season, even though they were fashioned before then. Disney Interactive altered their looks to the new designs quickly at Lucasfilm's request.

The Star Wars Rebels characters have no Playset of their own, but can be unlocked for use in both Twilight of the Republic and Rise Against the Empire.

Note: Unlike the Clone Wars characters, Kanan and Ezra do not have the Force Dash ability.

Sabine Wren

• Quick Thinking » Health & Defense

Disney's Classics

The classic Disney characters work a little differently than their Star Wars counterparts. Their abilities tend to be less specialized, and there are typically fewer of them. We've chosen to highlight the primary weapon each character uses, as it's the foundation for all of their melee and ranged skills.

Mickey Mouse

Primary Weapon: random comedy objects pulled out of thin air.

A ground-pound (jump + attack) move that creates a small snow storm.

Primary Weapon: bo staff.

Blocks and repels enemy attacks with the bo staff when timed correctly.

Feeling Emotional

The five emotions from Inside Out all throw orbs as their primary abilities, and those orbs can be charged up for more damaging hits. Each one also has a unique talent that's not on his or her skill tree. These abilities, which we've listed below, are necessary to play the Inside Out Playset, but come in handy in the Toy Box, too.


Unique Talent: After a double-jump, hold down the jump button and Joy flutters to the ground very slowly. This allows her to reach distances that are significantly farther away than she could normally travel to.

Releases a big aura of happiness that weakens enemies.

• Share a Smile » Ranged Skills
Joy charges up her orbs to create a unique effect: If she throws an orb at another player, it gives them health.

Releases an expanding field of rage that damages enemies.

• Furious Fire » Ranged Skills
