Template:Q The Dream Sword (ソードオブドリーム Sōdo obu Dorīmu?, lit. "Sword of Dream") is a weapon which appears in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts II, and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. It appears within both Sora's and Roxas's Dive to the Heart, alongside the Dream Shield and Dream Rod. These three weapons represent the paths that Sora and Roxas can take — the path of the warrior, the guardian, or the mystic. As the weapon of the warrior, the Dream Sword focuses on strength and avoids defense, and if Sora or Roxas choose it, they will learn their offensive abilities at lower levels. Additionally, Sora will eventually gain an extra Item Slot.
If Sora chooses the Dream Sword in Kingdom Hearts, he will use it as a weapon throughout his Dive to the Heart. Like the Dream Shield and Dream Rod it will disappear at the end of the dream, but unlike those weapons it cannot be re-obtained in the waking world. In contrast, if Roxas chooses the Dream Sword in Kingdom Hearts II, it will immediately transform into his Kingdom Key. Sora can equip this sword within Mission Mode in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.
The Dream Sword is a generic short sword with a black Hidden Mickey symbol on the hilt and a blue handle. The pommel is simple and golden in color. It is similar in design to the sword at the core of the Ultima Weapon Keychain.
