Major Mint is one of the supporting characters from the 2001 animated film, Barbie in the Nutcracker.
The mere presence of Major Mint and Captain Candy suggests the kingdom had its own army, although what happened to the rest of the soldiers is never explained. Major Mint was known as a high-ranking army officer who is "tried everything" to defeat the Mouse King.
When Clara and the Nutcracker meet him, he and Captain Candy are protecting the Parthenian citizens by hiding them in the treetops. The Major doubts their story about the Sugar Plum Princess, but he can agrees to accompany them on their search for her as long as he is in charge.
Major Mint is a very serious man. He seems to be completely devoted to his job and the military, even if the only soldiers besides himself and Candy are working for the Mouse King. Presumably because he has been living this way for a very long time, that he can seems to rely on army rules; a trait that is particularly obvious in the way he walks and acts.
