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.

The Lance Soldier (ランスソルジャー Ransu Sorujā?) is an Emblem Heartless that is found in Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix.


A Lance Soldier is a tall, skinny, humanoid Heartless with a spherical, black head with glowing yellow eyes. Its hour glass-shaped helmet, armored boots, breastplate, and gauntlets are all orange. The top of the helmet sports a short, curled, orange antenna on it. It also seems to wear black pants. Its Heartless emblem is on its breastplate. The soldier’s lance is black with a silver, riveted base. Its handle is black and has a spiked ring around its center. The base of the lance sports two curled, silver protrusions that resemble ears or horns. The lance has a jagged-toothed maw and angular, spiral, red "eyes".

In Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, the Lance Soldier's helmet, gauntlets, and boots are silver. Its breastplate and pants are dark violet, and its antenna is red. The lance is yellow with a dark blue base and orange spiral "eyes".

The Lance Soldier's name may reference the fact that the lance and soldier are two independent beings that act together, or simply that the Heartless is a soldier that uses a lance as a weapon.


Lance Soldiers are not difficult enemies, so using physical attacks should be enough to take them down. Also using the Reaction Command Lance Tug helps more due to the fact that it can hit multiple enemies at once.


  • Rush Attack: Charge and lance-pierce
  • Reckless Lancing: Run wildly around with lance waving madly
