Kingdom Hearts Wiki

The Sneak Army is an Emblem Heartless exclusive to the Hades Cup in Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts Final Mix.


The Sneak Army is a bipedal lizard resembling a chameleon. It has a dark steel blue body, with five short spikes along its back. It often stands hunched over, holding its arms out in front of it. Its entire upper body is covered in stripes of various shades of black and grey, reminiscent of camouflage clothing. Its hands and feet have four toes each, two in front and two in back, with black claws.

Its prehensile tail is curled up behind it in a spiral. It has a mouth lined by short, pointed teeth, a pink tongue that can extend to surprising lengths, and large yellow and orange eyes with small black pupils. It also has a large, black horn on the tip of its snout. Its Heartless emblem is on its chest.


The player should apply the same strategy as he or she did for Stealth Sneak. However, the Sneak Army tends to switch places more frequently than its predecessor, so the player should lock on to it. It is also recommended to use Aeroga to double the damage dealt to the enemy.

The Sneak Army shoots a ball of light from its hands, which can be evaded by simply jumping. It also fires white lasers from its eyes, though they do not have homing properties. The player can either stay far away from it, or attack it directly at the center of the Sneak Army's head (not the sides, because he will receive damage). Repeat these steps accordingly and the Sneak Army will be down in no time.

The Sneak Army shares the former part of its name with the latter part of the Stealth Sneak, emphasizing that both Heartless are of the same family.[1] "Sneak" means "to hide", referencing its ability to become invisible, and "Army" references the camouflage pattern present on the Heartless.


  1. Further proof of the familial connection to the Stealth Sneak is that, when a Sneak Army is defeated, it does not immediately fade into darkness like other Heartless do. Instead, it collapses to the ground. A similar animation to this is used when the player defeats the Stealth Sneak during the battle with Clayton in Deep Jungle.
