Master Xehanort's Keyblade (マスター・ゼアノートのキーブレード Masutā Zeanōto no Kīburēdo?) is the Keyblade used by Master Xehanort in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. Although he doesn't often draw his Keyblade, Master Xehanort wields his weapon whenever he fights, to channel his own dark magic and to use the ability to lock and unlock hearts.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by SleepEdit

Master Xehanort used his personal, unique Keyblade to extract his apprentice Ventus's dark half from his heart from his body to create his second apprentice Vanitas, to fire bullets of darkness that scarred his former friend Master Eraqus, to fight with Vanitas against Terra, Ventus and Aqua and to exclusively fight against Terra.

After Master Xehanort extracts his own heart to take over Terra's body, Terra-Xehanort used Master Xehanort's Keyblade to battle Lingering Will and then Aqua but Terra's heart begins throwing off Master Xehanort's control, forcing Terra-Xehanort to use his Keyblade on himself but ended up sealing away both their hearts and to lose the power to summon a Keyblade.[1]

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop DistanceEdit

According to several flashbacks, Xehanort is shown summoning Master Xehanort's Keyblade to release the hearts of Even, Ienzo, Aeleus, Dilan and Braig.

After his revival, Master Xehanort summons his personal Keyblade in an attempt to infuse his own essence into Sora but Lea saves the boy from Xehanort's attack.


Master Xehanort's Keyblade has a spiky, black guard resembling demonic wings, a horned, demonic head just above the handle, two barbed shafts, and teeth resembling a battle axe split into three almost claw-like protrusions. It resembles the Oblivion Keyblade to a degree, but with two shafts and a different head. Its shaft and head are adorned with several twisting, silver patterns. It also contains two demonic, blue eyes (similar to the one on Riku's Soul Eater and Way to the Dawn, Terra's Chaos Ripper, Vanitas's Void Gear and the alternate timeline Xehanort's Keyblade) with one on the Keychain and the other one on the head.

Master Xehanort is capable of converting his Keyblade into an orb of dark energy, which is shot into the sky to summon Kingdom Hearts. His Keyblade possesses a Keychain, which has a black charm with another demonic blue eye upon it.

In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, No Heart has displayed the ability to transform Master Xehanort's Keyblade into various forms including a shield-like form which creates a barrier of dark energy, a greave which he uses for kicking attacks, an arm bracer with the blade protruding past his hand for offensive capabilities, and wings for flying attacks.


  1. Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Final Episode: "In a desperate move to rid himself of Terra once and for all, Xehanort turned his own Keyblade on himself, and began to sink into the pool of darkness that spilled forth."
