Enemies

KINGDOM HEARTS II [HEARTLESS] [NOBODIES]
BIRTH BY SLEEP [UNVERSED] [HEARTLESS]
Re:coded [HEARTLESS] [BUGS

Shadow

シャドウ

It sinks into the ground while moving, so timing is the key to defeating it.

The moment it surfaces, attack away!

Neoshadow

ネオシャドウ

An extremely agile Heartless.

It dives into shadows before it pops up in front of its enemy and delivers a rolling attack. The Neoshadow moves in the shadows, making it a difficult opponent to fight.

Gargoyle Knight

ソードスタチュー (Sword Statue)

Although it looks like an ordinary statue, it attacks with no warning.

Immune to magic, it can attack from any range. Parry its attacks for a chance to use reaction commands.

Gargoyle Warrior

アックススタチュー (Axe Statue)

Although it looks like an ordinary statue, it attacks with no warning. Immune to magic, it is skilled in ranged attacks.

Fully avoid its spinning attacks for reaction commands. If timed well, it can be defeated in a single blow.

Possessor

ポセッサー

A Heartless that appeared in Beast's Castle. It possessed the dungeon doors, turning it into Thresholder.

It had the power to conceal itself, but had very few other powers.

Thresholder

ゲートガーディアン (Gate Guardian)

The doors possessed by Possessor that attacked Sora and his friends.

Possessor was separated from the doors with Release, in which the power of the Keyblade was poured into the keyhole blocked by its arms.

Dark Thorn

ブラックソーン (Black Thorn)

A liberated version of Shadow Stalker that appeared in Beast's Castle.

It appeared and disappeared while running wild, creating a chaotic battle for Sora and his friends.

Shadow Stalker

ダークストーカー (Dark Stalker)

A Heartless that attacked Belle in Beast's Castle.

It jumped around on the floor, pillars, and chandelier of the ballroom, creating mayhem.

Soldier

ソルジャー

It unleashes decent attacks from every angle. Stay alert when fighting it!

It counterattacks with a kick, so retaliate with Cyclone to float in midair and unleash combo attacks!

Large Body

ラージボディ

It will block attacks dealt from the front, so a good option is to perform a series of combos from behind, finishing with Full Swing.

When enraged it will repeatedly tackle its target. That's the time to use reaction commands. Use Kickback to finish the battle!

Silver Rock

シルバーロック

It quickly disappears into a ball of light, setting off an explosion when it reappears. Use reaction commands when it's in light form.

It easily resists magic, so don't be shy about using the Keyblade!

Spring Metal

スプリングメタル

To make up for its lack of movement, it uses many moves to draw Sora, Donald and Goofy towards itself. If left alone, the battle will become troublesome, so if it should appear, focus on this first. Magic isn't very effective against it, so bash it with the Keyblade!

Emerald Blues

エメラルドブルース

Attack from a safe distance, while watching out for its sudden tackle. When its HP gets low, a tornado forms, drawing the enemy close.

It easily resists magic, so don't be shy about using the Keyblade!

Crimson Jazz

クリムゾンジャズ

It chases its target with determination while scattering mines, so be wary when fighting this creature.

When its HP gets low, it places a large mine. Avoid it before it explodes. It easily resists magic, so don't be shy about using the Keyblade!

Fat Bandit

ファットバンディット

Immune to fire magic, it parries most attacks dealt from the front. Use the Rush attack from behind and defeat it with a combo attack.

Parry its fire bombs for a chance to unleash Full Swing!

Wight Knight

ワイトナイト

It merely wanders around, but once attacked, it attacks persistently. Parry its attacks to ward it off.

Air Pirate

エアパイレーツ

Its swiftness makes it hard to attack, so wait until it is still before attacking. Use magic to stop its movements.

Avoid its retaliating tackling kicks by using the reaction commands!

Air Viking

エアバイキング

Because it attacks so quickly, there is hardly any time in which this Heartless's guard is down. By using attacks like Magic, halt it in its tracks. Its chain of kicks it lets out is when it's most susceptible to damage. Counter with a Reaction Command!

Creeper Plant

クリーププラント

It stays in place and shoots seeds. Use reaction commands when it counterattacks with its roots. Use Root Ravager to uproot and attack surrounding enemies at once!

Crescendo

ラウドネス

It restores the HP of surrounding enemies. Use Heal Stomp with the right timing to heal the party.

When attacked, it may call for help, so be sure to defeat it immediately.

Tornado Step

トルネードステップ

It attacks as it moves, so once it starts spinning, stop its movements with reaction commands.

Use Tornado Ride and grab the enemy for a free ride while attacking surrounding enemies.

Trick Ghost

トリックゴースト

It has two faces, both of which need to be fought differently.

When in the air, move in close to seal its long-range attacks. When on the ground, move far away to avoid its short-range attacks.

Magic Phantom

マジックファントム

A two-faced Heartless. When floating, the Keyblade poses no threat to it. However, its magic attacks can be reflected. If those hit, this Heartless will stop floating, allowing for attacks to hit.

Rabid Dog

マッドドッグ (Mad Dog)

It won't move until approached, so move in swiftly and attack.

It becomes tired and lets its guard down after counterattacks. Attack then for an easy battle.

It generally flies around scoping the area. When it swoops, use Bat Battery to capture it and attack surrounding enemies.

After this attack, use combos while in the air to defeat it.

A great mage who can handle all three types of elemental magic.

It bears a striking resemblance to Red Nocturne, Blue Rhapsody, and Yellow Opera when changing stance for use of each magic. It is immune to all magic, and should be defeated immediately.

Rune Master

ルーンマスター

An incredible magician Heartless with much magic power. It uses 3 powerful elemental Magics. It also uses its book as a shield, so when attacking using the Keyblade, be sure to time it.

Minute Bomb

ミニッツボム

When attacked, it counts down for self-detonation. Use Dodge Roll seconds before the explosion to lure surrounding enemies into it.

To play it safe, parry its tackles to make it lose its will to fight.

Bulky Vendor

バルクベンダー

A rare Heartless that can be found in certain worlds. It appears when you poke around various areas of the map.

It only appears in certain areas, and once it appears, it will not appear in that area for a while. Use the reaction command to get items. Figure out its secret pattern to get specific items.

Fortuneteller

It uses and is immune to all ice magic.

When its HP gets low, it uses magic to try to freeze its target. Try counterattacking with Clear Shot.

It shoots bombs from afar, so defeat it immediately. Avoid areas of potential bomb drops while attacking.

It runs off when approached, so follow it closely and defeat it.

Silent Launcher

It chases its target with determination when counterattacking. Run!

Driller Mole

It moves underground, so follow the clouds of dust for its position.

Use a finishing move to lure it out of the ground. Attack when its face pops out of the ground!

Lance Soldier

ランスソルジャー

The soldier and lance don't get along, so it will be easy to catch this enemy off guard.

When its HP gets low, the lance goes nuts. Grab it with Lance Tug to attack surrounding enemies. A good strategy is to lower its HP and wait for the chance to use Lance Tug.

Lance Warrior

ランスウォーリアー

This Heartless's body and spear don't seem to get along very well, leaving it open for many attacks. Note that its piercing attack will send Sora flying. The Reaction Command "Lance Tug" can be used against it.

Its movement speed increases when retaliating, so defeat it while it's flying slowly.

It attacks and withdraws quickly, making it hard to hit. Use magic to defeat this enemy.

When its HP gets low, it moves around even quicker, so be sure to defeat it as soon as possible.

Mad Bumper

マッドバンパー

Due to its extremely heavy body, hitting it away won't cause it to fly away. When its attacks are interrupted or guarded, it will become frustrated and enter a berserker state. Fire-based Magic don't damage it at all. Its weakness is, however, Blizzard-based Magic.

Assault Rider

Watch out for the electric attack unleashed during its transformation!

With a shaman, it powers up to unleash deadly curses, but merely defeat it as you would a shaman.

The cursed flame it occasionally unleashes firmly chases its target, but it can be used advantageously with reaction commands!
