Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

These large flying drone Heartless fire a super laser that tears apart anything in its path, friend or foe. While regular attacks will not stagger the Destroyer, jolting it with Thunder magic will disable its super and double laser.

Physical appearance

A Destroyer is a large, red, funnel-shaped, mechanical Heartless with a diamond-shaped opening in its front, exposing its glowing, yellow eyes. Two indigo, diamond-shaped guns are mounted on either side of its body. Each of these guns sports a silver, pyramidal spike on both of its ends. There is a black ring that acts somewhat like a gyroscope hovering around its base, despite not being directly connected to the Heartless.

This ring bears a vague resemblance to the top half of the Nobody symbol. The Destroyer has a silver spike on the top of its head, and its Heartless emblem is just below the opening for its eyes. The top and bottom halves of its body are yellow.


Roxas teams up with Axel and Xion to take out two giant Heartless. After defeating the first one, they search for the second, only to have Xion faint right when the spot it. Axel tells Roxas to take care of it, so the player is left with a solo mission, a Destroyer, and plenty of Minute Bombs.


The Destroyer's name references its mechanical nature and great power, as a "destroyer" is a small, fast warship. It may also simply refer to the verb "destroy", which means "to damage beyond repair".
