Masters of the Keyblade

Maestro Xehanort


Master Xehanort was a Keyblade Master who dedicated himself to darkness, and wished to create the Keyblade χ to take over Kingdom Hearts. To do this, he devised various schemes, and manipulated the necessary people with great care. He also formulated several contingency plans in case his initial failed. Finally, he used his Keyblade to extract her heart so that he could enter and take over Terra's body, thus creating Terra-Xehanort, and - after inadvertently sealing the distance of both hearts and memories of him and Terra of using the Keyblade - Subsequently, Xehanort became an apprentice to Ansem. After his return, he plans to use thirteen different versions of himself to battle seven heroes of light to successfully create the Keyblade χ.

Master Xehanort's Keyblade is gray in color. Its handle is made up of two demonic wings. Its shaft resembles a head of a demon. Its blade is a slightly lighter gray color, with an eye, like the one in Camino al Alba, at the end of it. It also has several details in white. His keychain is gray, a much whiter shade, in the shape of a flower, with a green eye. It bears certain similarities to Distant Memories and Chaotic.

Master Eraqus

Master Eraqus was a Keyblade Master who protected Partida Land and had Terra, Aqua, and Ventus as students. After Aqua became a teacher, he told her the secret responsibilities that come with that title.

The Keyblade of Eraqus, Salva del Maestro, is black, gray and a very dark brown. Its handle is metallic gray and dark brown. It has a very square shape. Also in this it has a point, in the gray part. Its blade is black, and its teeth are shaped like an "E", the initial of its bearer. His keychain is the same as the symbol on Eraqus's chest, an emblem similar to that of the Nobodies and the Heartless.

Master Aqua

Aqua is a Keyblade Master who was present before the events of Kingdom Hearts. His initial Keyblade is called Downpour, which later transforms into Ragweed. Near the end of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, she begins to use Master Eraqus's Keyblade after collecting it in a corrupted Departure Land. Her attempt to save Terra causes her to lose her own Keyblade, and Eraqus's Keyblade becomes her only weapon while she is in the Realm of Darkness.

The Keyblade inheritance ceremony was accidentally (and unknowingly) performed between Aqua and Kairi when, as Aqua protected Kairi from the Nescient near the castle entrance in Radiant Garden, Kairi touched Aqua's Keyblade.

Maestro Yen Sid

Although Master Yen Sid has not been shown to wield a Keyblade during the series, he does acknowledge having been a master of the Keyblade. He is also apparently the original owner of King Mickey's Star Explorer Keyblade. Master Eraqus declared that Yen Sid retired from his position, but remained active in watching over the Realms of Light and Darkness.

Despite his retirement status, he can still take the Master's Title Exam to select new Masters of the Keyblade, such as when he recognized Mickey and Riku as Masters after his exams. It could be speculated that if a situation is dire enough, he will pick up his Keyblade one more time to help fight Master Xehanort and other villains.

Maestro Mickey Mouse

As an apprentice to Master Yen Sid, Mickey wielded the Star Scout Keyblade, a gift from his master. His adventures with Ventus and Aqua make up his Master's Title Exam, and after his disappearance, he returned to the Tower of Mysteries, feeling that he had failed the exam, his friends, and his teacher. He returned the Star Scout Keyblade to Yen Sid, only for the teacher to give it to his student once again, revealing that Mickey had indeed completed his exam and become a teacher.

After the worlds began to disappear due to the Heartless, Mickey set out to find a Keyblade from the Realm of Darkness in order to seal the door to darkness alongside a Keyblade from the Realm of Light, and thus stop him. the Heartless. He obtained the Chain Keyblade of Kingdom D during that trip. This Keyblade is identical to Sora's Kingdom Chain Keyblade, except that the colors are reversed, the hilt is silver, and the blade is gold. During the events of Kingdom Hearts coded and Kingdom Hearts Re: coded, King Mickey once again wielded his Star Scout Keyblade.

Maestro Riku

Riku was the one who was originally going to wield Sora's Keyblade, as he had performed the Keyblade Inheritance Ceremony with Terra. However, Riku was initially denied the possibility due to him choosing the Darkness, which weakened his Heart and caused the Keyblade to choose Sora. Instead, Riku uses the Soul Eater, a sword that grows more powerful when used with darkness. Although not a true Keyblade, Soul Eater is an intermediary for a Keyblade, possessing many powers that a Keyblade has. When Sora first arrived at Hollow Bastion, Riku was able to temporarily take the Keyblade from him, but later Sora's heart proved stronger, and he retrieved Riku's Keyblade.

After being possessed by Ansem, the Seeker of Darkness, Riku wielded the incomplete Keyblade of the Heart of the People, which had been forged from the hearts of six of the seven Princesses of the Heart. However, this Keyblade was destroyed when, after defeating Riku, Sora used it to free Kairi's heart from her body. When he encountered Roxas in the Nonexistent World, he was again able to temporarily wield a Keyblade, the Keyblade being Roxas's Distant Memories. However, while Riku was able to fight with the weapon, which was not his, Roxas soon claimed it.

In Kingdom Hearts II, Riku's Soul Eater was used as an intermediary for the manifestation of the Path to Dawn Keyblade, Riku's true Keyblade. This Keyblade represents Riku's nature as a being of light and darkness, both in name and form.

Riku was also somehow able to transform his Keyblade into Destiny's Embrace, allowing Kairi to use it temporarily.

Keyblade Bearers


Terra is an apprentice to the Keyblade, who was active prior to the events of the first Kingdom Hearts. His initial Keyblade is called Telluria, which later transforms into Postimeria. Their Keyblades are often much larger than Ventus and Aqua's.

Terra initiated the Keyblade Inheritance Ceremony with Riku in the Destiny Islands - prior to the destruction of the Land of Departure - and made Riku promise not to tell anyone about it.

Later, Terra's body was possessed by Master Xehanort, giving birth to Terra-Xehanort. Subsequently, Terra's heart (along with that of her Master Eraqus, who went to reside within Terra after Eraqus's death) begins an internal struggle against Xehanort's, which led Xehanort inadvertently sealing the heart and memory. of both using his Keyblade. At the same time, Terra's mind possessed her armor, creating Latent Consciousness.

After Master Xehanort possessed Terra's body and became Terra-Xehanort, he retained the ability to summon the Keyblade from his original incarnation, albeit wielding it as Terra would. Terra-Xehanort uses the Keyblade from her original incarnation to fight Latent Consciousness and Aqua. After being defeated, Terra's heart begins to fight, causing Xehanort to stab himself in order to rid himself of Terra. However, this does not work as it should, and instead seals their memories and subsequently the ability to wield a Keyblade, leading Terra-Xehanort to forget everything except Xehanort's name for a period of time.

Latent Consciousness

After Master Xehanort possessed Terra's body and became Terra-Xehanort, Terra's soul was left within her armor, bringing her to life and turning her into Latent Consciousness. Being a remnant of Terra, he is capable of wielding the Endgame Keyblade.

Ventus is an apprentice to the Keyblade, who was active prior to the events of the first Kingdom Hearts. His starting Keyblade is called Brazen Breeze. Their Keyblades are often shorter than Terra and Aqua's.

During their final battle at the Keyblade Necropolis, Vanitas possessed Ventus's body in order to summon and wield the Keyblade χ. However, Ventus destroyed it in the Descent to the Heart with his own Keyblade. When Aqua tried to figure out where to leave Ven's heart-deprived body, Ven summoned Brazen Breeze to open a path to the destroyed Land of Departure.

As a being created from the darkness of Ventus's heart, Vanitas has the power to summon her own Keyblade, known as the Empty Quid. This one bears a strong resemblance to Riku and Master Xehanort's Keyblades. It is mostly composed of various shades of red and gray, with a gear-shaped grip just like on the blade, and a blue eye in the center of the handle and on the top of the blade.

Aside from his own Keyblade, he is also capable of wielding the legendary Keyblade χ. It is believed to be more powerful than any other Keyblade, but was eventually destroyed by Aqua (in the Keyblade Necropolis) and Ventus (in the transformed Descent to Heart). Vanitas apparently saw its end when both the physical and mental manifestations of the weapon were destroyed. However, it is possible that he survived in some way, as he appeared in one of the Dream Drop Distance trailers.

Sora gained the ability to wield the Keyblade when it rejected Riku's heart and chose Sora as its bearer.

Sora's Keyblade belongs to the Realm of Light and appeared before him in his home world, the Destiny Islands, which was consumed by the Heartless. Its base form is Kingdom Chain, which uses a keychain in the shape of Mickey's head.

Sora is sometimes able to use the Keyblades of other wielders. For example, when fighting Roxas, he is able to take Fiancee and Distant Memories, giving a total of three Keyblades. Also, at one point during the final battle against Xemnas, Riku lends his Path to Dawn to Sora.

Riku gave his Embrace of Fate to Kairi in the Nonexistent World in order to protect Sora. Kairi uses this Keyblade to fight the Heartless in a battle in the Nonexistent World. The reason Kairi is able to wield a Keyblade is because she touched Aqua's Keyblade in Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep, which started a Keyblade Inheritance Ceremony.

Beginning with Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance Kairi begins her training with Master Yen Sid in order to become a full-fledged Keyblade warrior and prepare for the next battle against Master Xehanort.
