The Search Ghost is an Emblem Heartless that is found in Kingdom Hearts,Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories

Story

Kingdom Hearts

Once, Jack Skellington attempted to teach Search Ghosts how to dance as part of his "Heartless Halloween" festival. However, the guidance system keeping them from going on their usual rampages exploded during an attempt to upgrade it.

Also, a incapacitated Search Ghost was kept on Doctor Finkelstein's lab for experimentation.

Design

Search Ghosts are well-designed for their appearances in areas where a spooky atmosphere is required. Pale-skinned and bearing the classic footless ghost shape of Japanese folklore, they are clad in purple tunics bearing the Heartless emblem. The sleeves of the tunic end in white cuffs with gold cuff links, but the fashionable nature of the tunic is ruined a bit by the torn hemline and a rip on the left side that exposes the Search Ghosts' ribcage. Search Ghosts also wear white cuffed gloves, but noticeably, there is no flesh or skin connecting the sleeves of the tunic to the Ghosts' hands, only a disturbing empty gap.

Search Ghosts also bear the traditional Heartless jagged jawline and yellow eyes; however, their wide yellow eyes have black angled spirals on them. In addition, the right eye has been pulled out of the socket, and is only held to the head by a length of silver chain. The Ghosts' remaining good eye is what they use to search for their prey, emitting a yellow glow while looking, and with the glow turning red when a target has been spotted.

Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Search Ghosts have a more jarring color palette. The tunic is a much brighter violet, the cuffs and trim pink, and the gloves lavender. The head is also now a bright vivid orange, giving the Final Mix Search Ghosts a resemblance to a jack o'lantern at first glance.

The Search Ghost's name references its nature of looking for enemies with a rotating searchlight. The Heartless's name also highlights its ghost-like appearance.

Strategy

The Search Ghost attacks on sight, but is slow. It can warp out of harm's way and absorb enemies' HP, making it a tough opponent. They only attack when someone steps into their searchlight. So using physical attacks will be the best choice of action against the Search Ghost.
