Sora 03 KHIII
They can take your world. They can take your heart. Cut you loose from all you know. But if it's your fate... then every step forward will always be a step closer to home.
~ Sora to himself at the end of KHIII
I've been having these weird thoughts lately, like, is any of this for real or not?
~ Sora to himself

I know the Keyblade didn't choose me, and I don't care. I'm proud to be a small part of something bigger - The people it did choose. My friends... they are my power!
~ Sora to Xemnas and Xigbar

A scattered dream that's like a far off memory... A far off memory that's like a scattered dream... I wanna line the pieces up... yours, and mine...
~ Sora in the intro to KHII

That's not true! The heart may be weak, and sometimes it may even give in. But I've learned that deep down, there's a light that never goes out!

Summary

Sora is a cheerful, young boy hailing from the Destiny Islands and the main protagonist of the Kingdom Hearts series. Longing to see the worlds outside of his own, he and his friends Riku and Kairi pledged to build a raft and set out together. However, on their planned day of departure, a freak storm hit their home and their world was subsequently engulfed by the Darkness. It was at this time that Sora unlocked his ability to wield a Keyblade, a weapon of legend that is said to bring salvation or destruction but is thrown into a Corridor of Darkness despite his efforts to combat the shadows that were swarming his home. Awakening in Traverse Town, he soon sets out with Goofy and Donald Duck, attendants to King Mickey, to discover the mystery behind the Darkness and reunite with his friends.

Kingdom Key KH

(Kingdom Key): Through channeling one's strength of heart, the user can summon a Keyblade to use in battle. Sora's Keyblade is the Kingdom Key, a weapon from the realm of light. 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, like turning your Keyblade into a bike or whip. Thus far, Sora has not demonstrated such special abilities as of KHII but has finally obtained such in KHIII, implying his mastery of the ability after training under Yen Sid.

Keychain KH

Found among all Keyblades, Keychains allow the user's Keyblade to change shape and abilities, which vary a lot depending on the user and the Keychain itself.

Sora can quickly change the Keychain of his Keyblade by resummoning his own Keyblade with another Keychain, which is by default in its true form, the Kingdom Key.

The following are all the formes Sora's Keyblade can take from the respective Keychain:

KHI

KHII

KH3D

KHIII

KH Potion

A one-use item that allows to recover health by a decent amount quickly by casting it on himself or an ally.

Hi-Potion KH

A one-use item that allows to recover health by a noticeable amount quickly by casting it on himself or an ally.

Mega Potion KH

A one-use item that allows Sora and allies to recover health by a decent amount quickly by casting it on himself and allies.

KH Ether

A one-use item that allows to recover magic by a noticeable amount quickly by casting it on himself or an ally.

Hi-Ether KH

A one-use item that allows to recover magic back to peak quickly by casting it on himself or an ally.

Mega Ether KH

A one-use item that allows Sora and allies to recover magic back to peak quickly by casting it on himself and allies.

Refocuser KH

A one-use item that allows Sora to refill his focus a noticeable amount to be able to use Shotlocks by casting it on himself.

Hi-Refocuser KH

A one-use item that allows Sora to refill his focus back to peak to be able to use Shotlocks by casting it on himself.

KH Elixir

A one-use item that allows to recover health and magic back to peak quickly by casting it on himself or an ally, also rendering the one cast to with a resistance to multiple status effects for a while.

Megalixir KH

A one-use item that allows Sora and allies to recover health and magic back to peak quickly by casting it on himself and allies, also rendering the ones cast to with a resistance to multiple status effects for a while.

A one-use item that allows Sora to undo any negative status effects he is inflicted with.

As a wide variety of chains, belts, ribbons, bandannas, and armlets, among others, they grant Sora with a minor but still usable increase in stats, with some of the most noteworthy ones boosting his Resistances to most elemental attacks, with others like the Shock Charm+ boosting the power of his Thunder spell.

As rings, bands, belts, armlets, and badges, among others, they grant Sora with useful abilities for a fight, from boosting the power of his elemental attacks, increasing his Resistance to attacks and many others, also granting a minor but still usable increase in stats.

GummiShip

The Gummi Ship is the main way Sora travels across the Realm of Light, holding a wide variety of weapons, Sora can do many techniques with it when fighting in the middle of space.

Intelligence: Combat Genius. Sora, having lived on the Destiny Islands for most of his life, is not particularly worldly and has proven to be rather excitable and naive, such as the time where he was completely fooled by Mulan's paper-thin disguise as a man. However, he is a borderline genius in combat, becoming a Keyblade Master-level fighter in a little over a year, teaching himself a variety of sword techniques, magical spells, and supporting abilities that have served him well on his journeys, outmatching the likes of Ansem, Roxas, Marluxia, and Xemnas in combat, the latter of whom became the strongest character (pre-KHIII) in the entire series after obtaining the power of Kingdom Hearts. Sora has also shown the ability to perfectly replicate attacks after seeing them a single time, showing heightened combat awareness and dynamic thinking skills. He has even proven himself capable of using his opponent's weapons against them, stealing Roxas's Keyblades, utilizing Saix's Claymore, and throwing Marluxia's own scythe at him. Also, despite his kind nature and previously mentioned naivete, he is not easily swayed by his foes' sweet words. He quickly saw past Xemnas's attempts to paint himself as the victim (which was far more convincing than Mulan's disguise) and perceived him for the monster that he is before attacking him. After losing all of his powers again, he became strong enough to bring down Keyblade Masters like Aqua in little time, before eventually reviving himself and taking down most of the new Organisation XIII. He grew to the point where he was able to hard-press an X-Blade wielding Master Xehanort, likely the most powerful character in the series.

Standard Tactics:

Sora is quite limited in options here, as he only holds basic Keyblade attacks, the Firaga, Thundaga, Blizzaga, Graviga, Stopga, Aeroga (Defensive variant), Curaga, the summons Simba, Genie, Bambi, Dumbo, Tinker Bell and Mushu, and advanced Keyblade techniques like Ars Arcanum, Sonic Blade, Ragnarok, and Strike Raid.

Sora will try to attack the opponent close combat with his Keyblade, a bit later using magic to keep his distance to not leave himself too vulnerable from just doing that. If the opponent is tough, Sora may summon Tinker Bell so that he can heal without much issue, or Bambi if he is running out of magic, if the opponent doesn't resist Stopga, Sora can abuse it to keep the target in place so he can attack freely.

Other summons may also be used if Sora thinks he can use them freely, the same also applies to the advanced Keyblade techniques.

Sora keeps all of his past abilities in KHI, but Simba, Genie, Bambi, and Mushu do different things than before, with Cloud also being a summon now, however, Sora uses Sleights most of the time instead, allowing him to do techniques like Lethal Frame or Gravity Raid. Sora abuses the Power Nullification and mechanics of the cards to win, however, as each enemy card eventually wears down, Sora will be weaker than when he started after a while.

Thanks to the Platinum Card, Jafar, Air Pirate, and Creeper Plant cards, Sora can turn himself with a degree of Invulnerability via passively nulling opposing attacks, allowing him to freely setup Sleights; the Darkball card prevents Sora from being a victim of Information Analysis, allowing Sora to surprise some foes with his techniques, and the Neoshadow Card also allows Sora to damage opponents regardless of what he may do in the meantime for a while.

Enemy Cards that have to be manually used are available to Sora for use depending on what he sees the foe using the most to attack, outside of that Sora keeps the same character as in KHI.

Sora forgot most of his previous abilities, of which he got a variant of Firaga that spins around himself, Blizzaga, Thundaga, Curaga and the new Magnega and Reflega, the summons Stitch, Chicken Little, Peter Pan (Tinker Bell included) and Genie.

Sora also gets the Drive Forms, allowing Sora to increase his own power and heal himself in the process, which thanks to Second Chance he will do so if he doesn't have enough time to use a Potion or cast Curaga if he already ran out of magic.

Outside of that, Sora will try to attack his opponent with his basic combo then offensive magic as needed, other techniques, spells, summons and so on may be used depending on if the situation calls for it.

Sora no longer has any of the summons of before, but he can use Link Attacks and Dual Attacks alongside two of his Dream Eaters (Which he can change as needed), Flowmotion is also a new trick for Sora here, allowing to perform a lot of aerial strategies as needed.

As Sora's basic combo is not as effective as in past games, Sora uses advanced Keyblade Techniques like Ars Arcanum or Magic spells like Zero Graviza to attack, Flowmotion is also the most used if the target is too tough, and as usual, Sora will use any of his available options depending on what the situation calls for.

Sora now holds only the Firaga, Blizzaga, Thundaga, Aeroga (Offensive variation), Curaga and the new Waterga (Also including their Grand Magic variations), the summons Stitch, Ariel, Simba, Wreck-It Ralph, Meow Wow and Pegasus. Sora also keeps Flowmotion, but it no longer is as good as before beyond now it being his main way to get closer to a target.

Sora also gets the new Formchanges, which allow Sora to change the form of his Keyblade and techniques depending on what the situation calls for, the same also applies to Shotlocks, homing attacks, some of which allow Sora to attack in more unique ways than others.

Just like other variations of Sora's character, Sora will lead with the basic Keyblade combo, then he will use Magic and other techniques to keep his distance, after a while he will be able to use a Formchange, which will empower all of his available options, Sora can also switch Keychain at will to change Formchange as needed, including even in the middle of a combo.

Attraction Flow is also a new option, however, it is normally used when having to deal with a lot of opponents, rather than a single one unless Sora isn't really vulnerable while performing such.

Weaknesses: Sora's supply of magic is not infinite, forcing Sora to use his supply sparingly and thoughtfully (But it can recharge over time, he can also use an Ether or Elixir-family item to immediately refill it, summon Bambi (KHI), get himself hit so that it is recharged (KHII, KHIII), or by using a Drive Form (KHII)). Has not shown any skill in unarmed combat. Could be defenseless if one manages to disarm him (But this weakness is mitigated by the fact that Sora could either summon back his Keyblade to his hand right away, use his Anti-Form (KHII), or using his magic spells to fight (Possibly, Sora could only perform defensive actions to Yozora when he absorbed his Keyblade)). It's to be noted that magical spells do use the magic supply, while moves that are just magical in nature (Such as Ripple Drive and Stun Impact (KHI), Explosion and Magnet Burst (KHII), Magic Flash and Last Charge (KHIII)) don't, and so those can be used indefinitely just like regular physical techniques regardless of if there's enought magical supply or not.

Show/Hide
  • Became the Kingdom Key's chosen wielder.
  • Took on and defeated Sephiroth... twice.
  • Fought Xemnas along with Donald, Goofy, and The Beast in KH: Final Mix when he only had half a heart (This means that, from a story and power standpoint, he was incomplete when he didn't have Roxas with him, meaning Sora was "half as powerful" at the time of said fight)
  • Overpowered a giant, solid stone heartless while nerfed as a small lion (Lifting Strength)
  • Fought and taken several god-like beings such as Genie Jafar, Hades, Sephiroth, Ansem, Xemnas, etc.
  • Responsible for the destruction of most of the Original Organization XIII.
  • Along with Riku, defeated Xemnas who had absorbed an incomplete Kingdom Hearts. A complete one being capable of restoring hundreds of worlds to normal.
  • Contended with and defeated/stalemated the Lingering Will, a being with power and mastery over the Keyblade far above that of Sora and even Terra himself (even though the Lingering Will is a suit of armor that contains Terra's mind within).

  • Has traveled to many worlds doing nothing but primarily fighting.

  • Ars Arcanum: One of his most powerful attacks, Sora charges the Keyblade with energy before unleashing a powerful flurry of up to thirteen strikes. He opens with Arcanum, stunning the target in preparation for Bash, two sets of five blows that are quickly chained into each other. He finishes the target with Finis, two overhead swings that knock the target away.
  • Sonic Blade/Rave: Sora unleashes seven powerful thrust attacks at the enemy, with the final attack being more powerful and damaging.
  • Ragnarok: Alternatively called Infinity. After finishing an aerial combo, Sora can charge energy in his Keyblade to unleash a powerful fusillade of homing beams of light, the number and power of it is directly proportional to the amount of time he spends charging.
  • Strike Raid: Also translated as Strike Judgement in KHII. Sora throws his Keyblade at the enemy four times, with a fifth and final throw being more powerful to the point of sending the target flying into the air.
  • Ripple Drive: A powerful finisher attacks that envelop Sora's surroundings with a pink lattice that deals damage to all foes nearby.
  • Stun Impact: Sora quickly gathers energy and then emits it from himself at all directions, forming a sphere that stuns foes caught in it.
  • Zantetsuken: A combo finisher that has Sora bring back his blade before dashing past his foes for an impossibly fast thrust, dealing massive damage to all unfortunate to be caught in the line of fire.

  • Sliding Dash: Sora slides with his Keyblade on an straight line, being also able to get past multiple foes at once.
  • Zantetsuken:: Same as before, but now it nullifies for the rest of the battle the card the target may have tried to use at that moment, if any.
  • Strike Raid: Sora throws his Keyblade once, then it comes back to him, this move is able to stun multiple enemies, rendering them vulnerable.
  • Blitz: Sora jumps to the target and slams his Keyblade downwards to it, thrice.

Formchanging KHIII

An ability Sora has gained that allows him to change form and the capabilities of his Keyblade depending on its Keychain. Each form Sora takes emphasizes the abilities associated with it, as well as granting him new ways to combat his enemies through the forms his Keyblade changes into. It's to be noted that unlike Drive Forms, Formchanges can be immediatelly switched between even in the middle of a combo by changing the respective Keychain by resummoning the Keyblade with the desired one. Formchanges are charged in the heat of a battle, and so Sora has to keep up a fight for a while before being able to use each one.

An Ultimate Finish, as the name implies, are the highest move each Formchange can do on their last level, unleashing the full potential of the Keyblade and performing an special move, however, after use, Sora is reverted back to his base form, and the same applies to the Keyblade to its respective Keychain.

  • Thunder/Thundara/Thundaga: Sora summons a single lightning bolt from upwards to a target, Wisdom Form allows Sora to move around while using it, Master Form allows Sora to also quickly summon three consecutively, and Final Form brings even more mobility.
