Mother Gothel

"You want me to be the bad guy? Fine... Now, I'm the bad guy."
~  Mother Gothel

Mother Gothel
Mother Gothel is the main antagonist in Disney's 2010 CG animated feature film Tangled (voiced by Donna Murphy). Mother Gothel poses as Rapunzel's mother, but is responsible for kidnapping and locking her in a tower when she was a baby. Though she is quite fond of the young princess, her passive and demeaning comments toward her are anything but nurturing. Gothel's motivation for all of this is purely to keep herself from aging and prolong her life so it is unknown if she ever really cared about Rapunzel. Gothel is very vain, arrogant and makes multiple comments concerning her image. Gothel is pushed further and further into the role of villainess as Rapunzel grows close to Flynn and begins to find out about her true identity. She proves her willingness to go to whatever lengths necessary to keep Rapunzel trapped and her healing powers safe during the film.
