Kingdom Hearts

Heartless that emerge from various places. They are brisk in their movements, and rush into their opponents. However, they are not that tenacious. They often appear in numbers, though they lack teamwork.

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories - Sora's Story

A swift-moving Heartless that attacks its prey with a spin kick.
Its whimsical nature makes the Soldier a less than tenacious foe.

Kingdom Hearts II

It unleashes decent attacks from every angle. Stay alert when fighting it!

It counterattacks with a kick, so retaliate with Cyclone to float in midair and unleash combo attacks!

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

These small Heartless primarily use their claws and a flurry of kicks to attack.
The latter can be deflected with a block to trip them up.

Kingdom Hearts coded

Strangely perky Heartless which show up just about anywhere you look (as well as a few places you don't). They lunge at the first prey they spot.

StoryEdit

Kingdom HeartsEdit

Sora spots his first Soldier when he enters the Second District, as an exhausted man is caught by the Heartless and has his heart stolen. The heart is transformed into a Soldier Heartless, which escapes through a Corridor of Darkness. A platoon of Soldiers later lays siege to the Hotel in which Sora, Donald, Goofy, Leon, Yuffie, and Aerith are discussing the situation, and Leon helps hold them off so that Sora can escape and find the Heartless' leader.

Kingdom Hearts IIEdit

As Sora first returns to Hollow Bastion, a troop of Soldiers run past. Later on, another swarm steals the 100 Acre Wood book, damaging it and shunting Sora back out of it. Sora defeats them and retrieves the book, returning it to Merlin and going out to retrieve the stolen pages.

They appear again in the Dark Depths when Maleficent confronted Saïx, who had appeared to face Sora and company. Maleficent summoned these to deal with the Organization member, but Saïx calmly called up some Dusks, which quickly dispatched them.

DesignEdit

Soldiers have a much more refined appearance than Shadows, appearing as a noble knight-type warrior at first glance. A closer examination reveals the Soldiers are just as beastly as the other Heartless. Their muscular forms are clad in a bluish-black body suit bearing the Heartless emblem and purple inverted emblems trimmed in gold on the knees.

They wear black, silver trimmed shoes that end in spiral toes, silver wristbands, and a silver knight's helm decorated with two angular, eye-like spirals on the front and a yellow stripe at the base of the curled silver plume. It's true Heartless behavior comes out on a close examination of their fierce blue and red-tipped claws, and their shadowed faces with bright yellow eyes and toothy maw.

Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Soldiers have their colors swapped with the Air Soldier, shading them in black, tan, and brown.

The Soldier's name references soldiers serving the military. This highlights the Heartless's battle capabilities. They also appear in large numbers, referencing an army.

StrategyEdit

The Soldiers often just dawdle around, but some run around. They are not speedy, and their HP is low, so they are very easy to defeat using physical attacks. Also using the Reaction Command Cyclone is an even quicker way to defeat Soldiers.

Attacks
  • Claw Attack: Right-hand claw swipe
  • Two-Stage Claw: Claw, then thrust attack
  • Spin Kick: Jump and spin-kick on descent
