Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

These small flying Heartless strike with fireballs that bounce around, and you can't interrupt their magic by attacking.

TIP: Fire-based attacks can ignite you, which will gradually sap your HP for as long as it lasts.

The Scarlet Tango is an Emblem Heartless that is found in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.


A Scarlet Tango has a smooth, conical, black body that is red at its base and has a Heartless emblem emblazoned on its chest. The top of its body flares outward and forms a jagged, orange "collar" below the Heartless's spherical, pitch black head. It also wears a conical, orange hat that has a jagged brim, a black and red band circling it, and a thin, curled tip. Like many Heartless, the Scarlet Tango has glowing yellow eyes. Its seemingly useless feet sport three small, thin toes.

The Scarlet Tango's name has the same structure as other Heartless in its family. Consisting of a name of a color - in this case, scarlet - and a musical term - tango, a type of Argentinian dance.


Scarlet Tangos can easily be defeated, as they possess very little HP. Their only attack causes them to shoot a single bouncing fireball at the player; this fireball easily avoided with the use of either Block or Dodge Roll.

While a simple aerial combo can eliminate them, the fireballs the Scarlet Tangos launch have a 70% chance of dealing the Ignite status effect. Therefore, a Scarlet Tango should be defeated quickly or from afar, so that the Ignite status effect is not inflicted.
