|“||May your heart be your guiding key... I say it all the time. You ultimately need to do what your heart feels is right.||„|
|~ The Master's favorite phrase and advice to Invi|
|“||Well I could lie, and tell you a fortune teller is what I am, when I'm actually a brilliant artist, or even a scholar. I could tell you that I dream of world peace, when I'm actually planning for its destruction. The truth is what you see with your eyes, not what you hear.||„|
|~ The Master of Masters to Young Xehanort|
The Master of Masters is the Keyblade Master of the Foretellers, Ava, Ira, Aced, Invi, and Gula. Although eccentric and nonchalant about most things, he can be gravely serious when the time calls for it and has a fatalistic view of the future he foresaw and recorded in the Book of Prophecies. His Keyblade, inlaid with his own eye, is said to be the oldest still in existence, and was later passed to his sixth apprentice, Luxu, who then passed it on to Xehanort.

Range: Extended melee range with a Keyblade. Planetary with magic.
- Keyblade: Through channeling one's strength of heart, the user can summon a Keyblade to use in battle. Through the use of the Keyblade, the user is granted increased strength, speed, durability, and increased magical power, as well as access to special abilities, such as turning his Keyblade into a Keyblade Glider. The Master of Masters possesses what is now Master Xehanort's Keyblade, which is noted to be incredibly ancient and has the Master's eye inlaid in the tip, allowing him to see the future through it.
- Black Coat: A magically enchanted coat that allows the wearer to pass through the Corridors of Darkness safely, warding off corrupting influences and preventing the power of Darkness from encroaching one's mind and soul. It is also useful for stealth, as the hood completely obscures one's face and blends in the with the shadows created by the Corridors of Darkness.
Intelligence: Despite being known for his incredibly eccentric demeanor, the Master is known for his incredible abilities as a Keyblade Master, being revered with awe by his apprentices, who are all incredibly powerful Keyblade Masters in their own rights. He has a keen understanding of both Light and Darkness, creating the Chirithys from Darkness and wearing the Black Coat that would later be utilized by many other characters in the series. His eye also allows him to see the future, allowing him to maintain an advantage against his opponent if he so chooses.
Weaknesses: The Master has a fatalistic outlook on the future and doesn't believe it can be changed.
