The Hunchback of Notre Dame- Sanctuary!

Tier list

C ( 26th / 35 )

Frollo is a high-ranking priest and corrupt official from The Hunchback of Notre Dame, serving as the antagonist of the film due to his misinterpretation of biblical morals leading him to do evil acts. He appears as the playable character in Smash Bros. Lawl, and was the 11th character to be added, with his moveset being uploaded to Youtube on January 6th, 2012.

Here, Frollo acts less corrupt and more "Memetic-Cool", his burning lust being converted into actual fire to scorch his "damned" opponents with.

Entrance - Dark Horse

Frollo rides to the stage on his black horse.

Special Moves

B- Firing Fire

Frollo charges up a fireball, doing constant damage with low knockback to fools nearby until the fireball is released. After it's fired, the fireball explodes and does knockback on contact with an enemy. He won't release the fireball until it's charged to the max or when the B button is pressed. The fireball can be aimed up, down, or straight, depending on where the control stick is tilted.

Move Origin

In Frollo's villain song "Hellfire", fire is a common element appearing during the song. His pyrokinesis does not debut in the original film, but instead in The Frollo Show, where Frollo can wield fire magic.

Side B- Helldragger

Frollo performs a Psycho Crusher-styled move, but wrapped in flames. As the name suggests, Frollo drags opponents forward until he stops with an explosion, either from after 3 seconds or pressing B. The fiery flight can be performed on the ground or in the air.

Move Origin

See above

Up B- Dark Cape

An attack comparable to Olimar's Pikmin Chain, though this attack also grabs opponents higher from the judge and slams them to the ground. This proves an advantage over opponents on pass-through platforms.

Move Origin

During the climax of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Frollo uses his cape to try to make Quasimodo fall into the fiery pit.

Down B- Flamant Support

Frollo summons one of his guards with a flame (only one guard in the field at a time). The guard stays still guarding his spot and attacks enemies with an axe at short range or a bow and arrow at long range. Like Leonidas' Spartan, he can be killed like a normal SSE enemy. Unmasker and Electric Nightmare have no effect on the guard.

Move Origin

After Frollo finds out that Quasimodo helped Esmeralda escape, he sticks a knife in the Esmeralda figure in a candle flame and tosses the burning figure in front of him. Frollo's guards frequently appear to assist him in the film, but they are not summoned via flames.

Final Smash- Hellfire

Ghouls in red cloaks surround an enemy(-ies) closest to Frollo. Frollo then summons a gargantuan flame pillar, burning the victim with constant damage. After Frollo shouts "You will burn!", he creates an explosion from the pillar, dealing tremendous knockback to the victim.

Move Origin

In one part of "Hellfire" some ghouls in red cloaks appear and they sing along with Frollo. However, the flame pillar never appears during the song.


  • Down Taunt- "And he shall smite the wicked and plunge them into the fiery pit!"
  • Side Taunt- "Leaving so soon?"
  • Up Taunt- "Get out, you idiot!"

Victory Theme

The ending portion of an instrumental version of "Hellfire".

Character Description

Frollo is the stern, prejudiced judge of Paris, using his power to carry out his personal vendettas, making him feared and reviled throughout the city. Frollo is especially set on eliminating the gypsies scattered throughout Paris as their indulgence in "witchcraft and sorcery" is infectious to those around them, according to him. While most Disney villains know that what they do is wrong (and either do not care or take pride from this) Frollo actually believes he is a good person. He repeatedly refuses to find fault within himself and is quite self-righteous, declaring himself much purer than "the common vulgar, weak, licentious crowd" and above the biblical doctrine that all men are equally sinful. He believes that everything he does is in the name of God, even as he attacks the cathedral of Notre Dame for the sake of one gypsy.

He comes to lust for the beautiful Esmeralda , but even blames his own lust for her on witchcraft and the devil rather than accept that he himself is committing crimes and sins. His lust drives him murderously insane, which ultimately proves to be his downfall when he pushes Quasimodo too far by almost killing Esmeralda.

He is also sarcastic and sometimes shows a very dark sense of humor, in relation to his sadism and malice.

Frollo also has his own series made by chincherrinas, The Frollo Show, alongside Gaston.

Codec Messages

Snake Codec

Solid Snake: What's going on here?! This old guy is using fire magic...

Colonel: That's Frollo, Snake. Frollo first appeared as Quasimodo's rival. But he really made his name in The Frollo Show.

Snake: Are you kidding me?!

Colonel: Sadly yes, I am kidding. The Frollo Show is not that famous. Otacon just showed it to me yesterday.

Snake: Should I keep a lookout for his fire magic thingy?

Colonel: That's pyrokinesis, Snake. And yes, watch out for Frollo's fire. It burns to the flesh and bone.

Snake: Don't worry, you know from experience that I'm so much purer than those weak, licentious people. So... what do you think of Mei Ling?

Colonel: (singing) Like fire, hellfire, this fire in my skin...

Jameson Codec

Jameson: Alright I've been sending you to France so the public can see Frollo for the fake he really is!

Peter: Let's turn the whole city against him! I've got you this!

[A picture of Frollo and Gaston on a wooden seesaw is shown]

Jameson: Parker! What are you, deaf? I want Frollo with his hand in a cookie jar!

Peter: ...I understand...

[A picture of Frollo standing over Panty stripping in the fire is shown]

Jameson: Hahaha! I finally got to him! Catch him in the act! But I can't have a geezer cumming on my front page! YOU ARE FIRED! HEEELL FIRED!

Peter: No... please... please don't say that!

Jameson: Out the front door. Goodbye!

Role In The Subspace Emissary

Frollo arrived when Gaston was in danger from Leonidas and King Harkinian. So the villains fight the Kings but they lost. After the Kings revived I.M. Meen, they resume their journey and the camera zooms out to Gaston and Frollo in their trophy forms revealing that they're wearing revival badges...


  • Frollo is the first moveset video not to use music from Brawl, starting the trend of original music for each character moveset.
