|This article is about the term, "Light". You may be looking for the song Hikari.|
Light is a force parallel to Darkness, an element for Synthesis items, and may also be used as an attack in the Kingdom Hearts universe. Although often associated with the forces of good, light is not entirely benevolent; Xemnas uses Roxas' power over light against Sora and Riku in his last stand.
Special Uses of Light
Light can also be manipulated into attacks by some beings within the Kingdom Hearts universe, most notably being Sora and his Nobody Roxas. Similar to members of Organization XIII these two are able to physically call and wield the element of Light to their aid. Roxas's light powers, however, are significantly more advanced than Sora's; he is capable of creating spears and force fields out of light, while Sora only seems to be capable of using it to augment his physical attacks.
On multiple occassions throughout the Kingdom Hearts series characters have been able to wield Light in unique manners not similar to those above. Most notable are the Princesses of Heart who are able to use their inner light to help those in need. For example, Kairi is able to use the Light in her Heart during the confusion at Hollow Bastion following Sora's sacrifice to return his heart to him during the events of Kingdom Hearts. In the sequel, Sora is able to open the "Door to Light" in the Realm of Darkness using his own heart to return himself and Riku to the Realm of Light on Destiny Islands. It should also be noted that Queen Minnie has limited control over Light as is seen with her "Limit"/Reaction Command with Sora, Faith.
