The Rapid Thruster is an Emblem Heartless that is found in Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix. Rapid Thrusters never appear alone. They are always accompanied by other Rapid Thrusters, be it two or one hundred.


Kingdom Hearts II

Rapid Thrusters make up a great percentage of Shan-Yu's army in The Land of Dragons. While fighting Riku at The Land of Dragons, an endless swarm of Rapid Thrusters hover above the battleground.


A Rapid Thruster has a spherical, black head with glowing, yellow eyes and a jagged mouth. Its head is surrounded by a large, two-pronged, beak-like helmet that sports a black spike on either of its sides. The helmet itself is orange and the Heartless emblem is on its top. Its body is also spherical, black, and only slightly larger than its head. It lack arms, and its legs are thin and do not have distinct digits. It has a propeller attached to its rear that it uses to fly. Its neck and body are separated by a thin, cyan line.

The Rapid Thruster's name refers to its speed—hence, "rapid"—and the propeller on its back—a "thruster" is a propulsion device.
