List of weapons
Xemnas's Ethereal Blades
Xemnas uses "Ethereal Blades" (エアリアルブレード Eariaru Burēdo?, lit. "Aerial Blade"), and his signature Ethereal Blade is the Interdiction. Ethereal Blades are beams of solidified Nothingness which act according to Xemnas's will, allowing him to hold them without a hilt or handle. He can summon or dismiss them at will, and uses them primarily as bludgeoning weapons.
The Ethereal Blades can also be used as projectiles and can suspend themselves in midair around a target before falling in on them. Xemnas's joke weapon is Round Fan. As a desperation move, Xemnas can surround his enemy in darkness and fire an amazing amount of Ethereal Blades at once. The Unknown wields weapons very similar to Ethereal Blades.
The Ethereal Blades are named after negative emotions, or terms related to authority.

Xemnas (Armored Controller)
While clad in his Keyblade Armor, Xemnas is able to use the main weapons used by Xigbar, Xaldin, Saïx, Axel, Demyx, and Luxord, as well as a unique sword.
Xigbar uses ranged weapons known as Arrowguns, a peculiar type of laser gun with traits similar to crossbows and handguns. His signature Arrowguns are known as Sharpshooter, similar to his title of the "Freeshooter". Many of his weapons' names are based on demonic names and ranged weapon terminology, and several are named after enemies from the Final Fantasy series.
Unlike other characters, his attacks have a much longer range and a slight homing ability. Just like regular guns, his Arrowguns must be reloaded from time to time. Xigbar's Arrowguns also have the ability to combine into a single sniper rifle, offering increased power and accuracy. Xigbar's joke weapons are Dryer and Trumpet.
Xaldin's primary weapons are six Lances. They, along with Xaldin's attacks and Dragoon Lesser Nobodies, are a reference to Final Fantasy's Dragoon Job Class. The names of Xaldin's Lances are mostly named after terms relating to the sky, air, or wind, and several have names based on constellations. His signature Lances are called the Lindworm. Xaldin usually only holds up to three at a time, and the rest float around him in the wind he commands.
Xaldin can use them to thrust from long distances, twirl them around himself as a form of defense, jump down on a foe with all six pointed downward, or have them grow and fuse into an enormous dragon that he rides on before firing a whirlwind from the dragon's mouth.
In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Xaldin can wield six Lances in battle, although only two are present outside of a combo. Due to the length of the Lances, Xaldin's melee attacks have the longest range, barely beating Marluxia's Scythe. Xaldin's joke weapons are the Broom and Wyvern.
Vexen, like Goofy, carries a Shield as a weapon, and his main weapon is a pointed blue and silver Shield named Frozen Pride. His Shields tend to take the name of a glacial period or of a scientific description or term. He has been seen to have high defensive and offensive skills when wielding his Shield.
His Shield, Frozen Pride, has even been shown to have a health bar of its own in the data battle in Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix. His joke weapons are the Pot Lid and Snowman, in which the Pot Lid is just the lid of a pot and the Snowman is a shield that has a snowman in front of a snowflake.
Lexaeus's Axe Swords
Lexaeus uses weapons called Axe Swords, which possess traits of axes, swords, and hammers. Many of his weapons have names referencing poetry, types of trees, minerals, and various other references to nature. His Axe Swords are shown to be extremely powerful in terms of strength. His signature weapon is the Skysplitter. His joke weapons are the Bleep Bloop Bop, a simple cartoonish hammer, and the Monolith, a weapon resembling one of the Moai statues on Easter Island, Chile.

Zexion's weapon is a large Lexicon. His Lexicons' names revolve around books and written composition terms, with the addition of some type of dark or foreboding adjective. His personal weapon is the Book of Retribution. Zexion can utilize his Lexicon along with his power over Illusion to mimic his opponents' weapons to use against them, and as a melee attacker he whacks his book at Heartless. His joke weapons are Dear Diary and Midnight Snack.
Saïx uses large weapons called Claymores. Most of his weapon names have something to do with the moon or the night. His signature Claymore is the Lunatic and his joke weapons are Just Desserts and Bunnymoon. When he enters his Berserk state, Saïx's Claymores all "open" in some fashion, becoming wider and gaining some sort of supplementary blade.
Axel uses Chakrams, which are circular bladed weapons. Most of the names of Axel's Chakrams are themed after heat or fire. His main weapon is a pair of Chakrams named Eternal Flames. His joke weapons are the Pizza Cut and the Conformers. Axel has a habit of swinging one of his Chakrams in his right hand absentmindedly while idle. The Eternal Flames themselves resemble wind and fire wheels more than chakrams unlike his other weapons. He can use them as either melee weapons or long-range weapons. For long-range, he simply throws the Chakrams to the enemy.
Demyx wields a Sitar, an instrument used predominantly in the Indian subcontinent. Most of his Sitars are named after musical or rock and roll terms. When fought, he his rarely ever seen physically hitting his opponent with his Sitar, but rather uses his power over water instead. In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Demyx uses his sitar similarly like a club and plays it as his combo finisher. His signature weapon is Arpeggio, and his joke weapons are After School and Prince of Awesome. When idle, he often strums it.
Luxord uses Cards as his weapon of choice. Nearly all of his weapons are named after tarot cards. His signature weapon is Fair Game. His joke weapons are Finest Fantasy 13, which take the appearance of compact discs with Nobody sigils on them, and High Roller's Secret, which are four-leaf clovers. Luxord's cards can vary greatly in size, from the size of normal playing cards to almost twice Sora's height, and are extremely flexible.
Marluxia specializes in the use of Scythes, which make his attack combos slow, but powerful. His attacks have the second longest reach of any melee character, just slightly after Xaldin. Almost all of his weapons are named after flowers along with a usually negative adjective. His main weapon is the Graceful Dahlia. His joke weapons are the Stirring Ladle and Dainty Bellflowers.
Larxene uses Knives as her weapons. All of her knives have French names. She wields her knives with four in each hand; one in-between each of her fingers. Her knives incorporate her power over lightning to quickly attack and electrocute foes. Most times as an alternate combo finisher she can throw her knives at enemies. Her signature knives are Foudre. Her joke weapons are Demoiselle (Damselfly) and Ampoule (Light Bulb).
Roxas and Xion's Keyblades
Roxas's and Xion's weapons are Keyblades. The names of their weapons are mostly associated with the pain of parting, loneliness, or light phenomena. Their signature weapons are the Kingdom Key and, in Roxas's case, Oathkeeper & Oblivion. Their joke weapons are the Umbrella and Aubade.
