Kingdom Hearts

Heartless born purely out of darkness. Their movements are unpredictable, as they often make sudden moves and attacks.

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories - Sora's Story

A Heartless made from the very shadows of darkness.

The Darkball mostly just bobs through the air, but its random weaving and biting are a nuisance.

Kingdom Hearts coded

Heartless hewn from the very shadows. Usually they just waft through the air, but they can be annoyingly unpredictable, bobbing around erratically or charging right at you without a moment's warning.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep

One of the many forms the heart takes after being swallowed by darkness. It uses strange movements to make fun of the enemy and bites it.

The Darkball is a Pureblood Heartless that is found in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts coded, Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix.


A Darkball Heartless, true to its name, has a spherical body that is pitch black and streaked with dark blue. Its glowing, yellow eyes are rather small. The inside of its mouth is blue, and the mouth itself is a jagged, toothy opening. It has three thick, black and blue tentacles with frayed, pink tips sprouting out of its body, two on its top and one on its underside. It closely resembles the Shadow Stalker of Kingdom Hearts II, although the Shadow Stalker has an overall smoother appearance and several smaller appendages.

The Darkball's name reflects its spherical shape and its status as a Heartless, a heart corrupted by the Darkness.


Darkballs are relatively easy enemies, and generally do little damage, thanks to the long pauses and low HP of this variety of Heartless. The Darkball teleports from one place to another, using a tactic similar to the more intelligent Invisible.


  • Reducing themselves to a small, purple cloud, allowing them to evade attacks, before expanding rapidly, causing damage.
  • Adopting a 'berserk' state, by which the Darkball rockets around in a restricted area, causing impact damage.
  • A charging chomp attack.


  • The Darkballs bear a slight resemblance to Bombs from the Final Fantasy series.
