Like in ''Final Fantasy X'', Wakka fights by throwing his Blitzball.
 
 
On Destiny Islands, he practices fighting skills with Sora as a way for the player to improve his level. During this battle, if Sora can manage to block one of Wakka's attacks via hitting the ball back at him, it earns him one tech point. If Wakka jumps in the air and throws the ball at Sora and Sora successfully blocks it he gets two tech points. After defeating Tidus, Selphie, and Wakka as individuals, Sora is able to fight against them all at the same time.
 
 
Like Selphie and Tidus, Wakka's battle stance and basic attack are based off his ''Final Fantasy X'' appearance. Also, his attack where he yells "Take this!" is based off one of his [[finalfantasy:Overdrive (Final Fantasy X)|Overdrives]], Status Reels.

Wakka lacks the fish necklace he wore in Final Fantasy X, and wields a simpler version of his Blitzball as a weapon.

StoryEdit

Kingdom HeartsEdit

Wakka is a resident of the Destiny Islands and a friend of Sora, Kairi, and Riku. He spends a lot of time with Tidus and Selphie, and treats them just as a big brother would. He and Tidus expressed their curiosity over the Secret Place, and were thinking of exploring it.

Like Selphie and Tidus, Wakka appears in Sora's Dive to the Heart on the Destiny Islands area. His question, "What do you want outta life?" also helps determine the leveling pace throughout the rest of the game. Sora can answer with either A) to see rare sights, B) to broaden my horizons, or C) to be strong.

He can be fought while on Destiny Islands. He uses his Blitzball to attack as he did in Final Fantasy X (thus requiring the player to deflect Wakka's Blitzball back at him), but this one lacking the bumps and Spiran script for the word "Blitzball" of the original Blitzball. Nevertheless, this makes him, out of all the Destiny Islands and Twilight Town Final Fantasy characters, the only one to use the exact same weapon as his original incarnation.

After Destiny Islands is destroyed, it is unknown what happened to him.

He is last seen playing with Tidus and Selphie after the island was restored in the end credits.

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of MemoriesEdit

A memory-based version of Wakka appears in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories inside the Destiny Islands simulation in Castle Oblivion. In the ending credits of Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, the real Wakka is shown playing with Selphie and Tidus on a beach while Kairi is facing the Small Island.

Kingdom Hearts IIEdit

Wakka makes no appearance in Kingdom Hearts II, just as Tidus doesn't. The two are only briefly mentioned by Selphie when she is talking to Kairi early on in the game, described as being "wrapped up in their ball game" (a reference to Blitzball from Final Fantasy X).

Kingdom Hearts codedEdit

Wakka makes his third appearance in Kingdom Hearts coded, this time as a data version of himself, appearing on the data version of Destiny Islands, alongside Tidus and Selphie. He appears on Destiny Islands talking to Sora.

OriginEdit

In Final Fantasy X, Wakka is a major character and a twenty-three year old retired Blitzball player from the isle of Besaid. His name means "water" in Ainu, a near-extinct Japanese dialect. In addition to being one of Yuna's guardians and childhood friends, he was captain of the Besaid Aurochs, a Blitzball team. Wakka is very religious, and always follows and believes in the teachings of Yevon.

TriviaEdit

  • Originally, Wakka was not intended to be in Kingdom Hearts; his role was supposed to be filled by Irvine Kinneas from Final Fantasy VIII
  • Wakka's character model is reused and with a new palette for a minor character. This character can only be seen in Agrabah after you have cleared the story as one of the many non-playable character managing the shops, but doesn't reappear again in subsequent visits as the Heartless reappear once the player leaves and returns.
