Rasputin is the main antagonist in Anastasia. Christopher Lloyd and Jim Cummings did both his speaking and singing voices, being of black magic forces of darkness.

Role in AnastasiaEdit

Rasputin is an evil megalomaniac sorcerer, and the self-proclaimed "most mystical man in all Russia". In 1916, he was killed after breaking up a grand ball in the royal palace, during which he attempted to kill the Romanov family, including then eight-year-old Anastasia.

Ten years later, it is revealed that he survived in Limbo as a living corpse, unable to die until Anastasia is killed. Bartok, his bat servant, explained that Anastasia was still alive in St. Petersburg. Bartok also provided Rasputin with his magical reliquary, thus restoring his old powers. Rasputin summons a legion of demons to kill Anya and complete his revenge, resulting in two failed attempts. This includes a narrow escape from a separated train in Poland that Anya, Vladmir, and Dimitri jump off to avoid falling to their deaths, and a nightmare aboard a ship en route to Paris from Stralsund, Germany, where Anya nearly sleepwalks overboard until Dimitri rescues her, alerted by Pooka. These failures make Rasputin realize he must kill her in person.

Rasputin takes advantage of Pooka leading Anastasia into a garden maze, and traps her there to reveal himself. He then tries to kill her on the Alexander Bridge over an icy Seine River. Dimitri returns to save her, but is injured and knocked unconscious. Anastasia manages to destroy Rasputin's reliquary by crushing it under her foot, causing him to disintegrate into dust, his soul awaiting eternal damnation with his hunger for revenge unfulfilled.

Role in Bartok the MagnificentEdit

Although he doesn't appear in Anastasia's spin-off, in the scene the Bartok explains his adventure to the people of Moscow, a man that looks a lot like him appears trying to touch the potion



  • Character animation was supervised by Len Simon.
  • In reality, the real Rasputin died of homicide on December 29, 1916 and he had no magic powers to end the Russian Empire.
  • He could be a lich, because he's a sorcerer, his soul is in a reliquary that if destroyed results in his death and he's undead.
  • Unlike the "real" Rasputin in reality life, the "real" Rasputin is a "protagonist for life et anatagonist fo a little bit" and the "virtual" Rasputin is depicted "antagonist nasty no-goodie."
