20GASTON MIGHT BE THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN
This one is a bit flimsy, but we can't deny the similarities are very intriguing nonetheless. The pompous pretty-boy, Gaston, is one of Disney's most beloved and recognized villains. With his broad swagger and colorful huntsman attire, he easily stands out amongst the Disney villain lineup. But there's something spooky
about how close he resembles another character.
The theory states that Gaston might be The Headless Horseman from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. It stands because Gaston's attire was inspired by Brom Bones from the 1949 film, who ambiguously might have been the Horseman. What ties it together is how close Gaston on horseback resembles the famous ghost, especially when he's holding the magic mirror. It's not a solid theory, but it has its point.
