Kingdom Hearts III
Flynn flees from Heartless in a forest, but is rescued by Sora, Donald, and Goofy. After his rescue, he slinks away and enters a nearby tower where he meets Rapunzel and Pascal. Using a tiara he stole, Rapunzel blackmails him to help her embark on a journey to see the flying lanterns. Wary of the Heartless prowling about, Flynn recruits Sora and his friends to ward them off, convincing them to act as his "sidekicks". Later, Flynn is persuaded by Rapunzel to let Maximus come along.
At Corona, Flynn and Rapunzel are able to see the lanterns. However, he mysteriously leaves with his crown on a boat, which breaks her heart. Unknown to Rapunzel, he has been tied-up by Marluxia. Flynn is caught by the police and is sentenced to death for his crimes by hanging. However, he manages to escape his death sentence with Maximus. While fleeing Corona, he sees Sora, Donald, and Goofy, and has the three of them ride on Maximus with him. The group returns to the tower, although Flynn gets there first. Inside, Flynn finds Rapunzel bound and gagged by Mother Gothel. As he enters, Gothel stabs him from behind, leaving him to die on the floor.
Rapunzel begs Gothel that if she lets her heal Flynn with the powers of her hair, Rapunzel will do whatever Gothel asks, even sacrificing her freedom for the rest of her life. Gothel accepts, and while Rapunzel tries to help Flynn, he tells her that if she heals him, she will die. Having realized that Gothel has used Rapunzel for her hair's healing properties, he chops off her hair with a mirror shard, causing her blonde hair to become brunette and destroying its power, which causes Gothel to die.
As Rapunzel, Sora and the others mourn for Flynn as he dies, Rapunzel's tears allow her remaining power to revive Flynn. Flynn takes Rapunzel back to the Kingdom to see her real family, revealing his real name to Sora and his friends to be Eugene Fitzherbert.
Sometime after Xehanort's defeat, Rapunzel and Eugene embrace in the town of Corona.
Flynn is a young man with brown hair, brown eyes and a goatee. He wears a long-sleeved white shirt rolled up to his forearms, with a turquoise vest on top. He has a small satchel belted around his waist on the left side, brown pants and boots.
Flynn has a somewhat selfish and narcissistic personality, although this gradually changes during his adventure with Rapunzel, whom he falls in love with. In an act of extreme selflessness, he cuts off Rapunzel's hair to keep her free, instead of risking her death by having her use her powers to heal his fatal wound.

Flynn first appeared in the 2010 Disney animated film Tangled in 2010, voiced by Zachary Levi.
In Tangled, Flynn is introduced as a young man who rescues Rapunzel from imprisonment. He rides a horse named Maximus, although Flynn does not own Maximus and they start out with a hostile relationship. His birth name is Eugene Fitzherbert. He changed his name to Flynn Rider, stemming from his orphaned childhood upbringing and being enamored by a book called "The Tales of Flynnigan Rider" about a legendary and powerful adventurer.
Flynn is inspired by the Prince from the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale.
