A Commander is a large, humanoid Heartless with dark green skin. It has large hands with yellow claws and wears tattered, brown boots with curled toes. It also wears silver bracelets and yellow knee guards. Its pitch-black head and glowing yellow eyes are visible under its blue-white helmet, which is decorated by a curled antenna and two angular, red spirals. The Heartless emblem is emblazoned on its chest.
The Commander's name is a naval term referring to an officer above a lieutenant commander and below a captain in rank.
The Commander, like all its family members, has a strong tendency to use kicking attacks. It will rush at you and release a powerful spinning kick. This kick may be simply dodged by using Dodge Roll, or it can be prevented by freezing it while it is idle.
