The Anti Black Coat is a Nightmare that emerged from the darkness surrounding Sora when he was plunged into sleep. He can be found in The World That Never Was in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and its remaster Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD.


Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance

Riku arrives in the ruined Castle That Never Was and reaches Sora in the Verge of Chaos, contained in a floating orb swirling with darkness; images of Riku, Kairi and Pluto float throughout the orb. Riku attempts to pull Sora free, telling him to wake up and not to chase the dream because if he did, he'd delve too far into the darkness and never wake up, though this proves to be futile.

The darkness of the orb begins to separate from it, forming the Anti Black Coat behind Riku. Riku asks if it was the one who trapped Sora in his nightmares. The Anti Black Coat doesn't respond and Riku summons his Keyblade, while the Nightmare symbol manifests on the back of the Anti Black Coat, contrasting Riku's Spirit symbol. Riku states that if it was a Nightmare, he would defeat it, before engaging the Anti Black Coat in battle. After Riku emerges victorious, the Anti Black Coat rises off the ground, and its darkness disperses.


The Anti Black Coat wears a standard black coat, which protects against darkness, however on the ends of the sleeves, as well as around the base of the coat, are purple flame-like hues. It manifests a blue Nightmare Dream Eater Symbol on his back, mirroring Riku's Spirit Dream Eater Symbol, before their battle. The Anti Black Coat's face is shrouded by the hood of the black coat, though two distinct circular red Nightmare-like eyes shine clear from under the hood.
