The Glide sequence in Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories.

Glide (グライド Guraido?) is a skill introduced in Kingdom Hearts. It allows the user to ride the wind and travel over distances in the air. It can be used as a faster mode of transportation than running, or as an evasion technique.

Mechanics[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts, Glide is a shared ability. It is activated by holding Circle while in midair, X in the Japanese release.

In Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, Glide is a movement ability that can be used by Sora. It is automatically equipped when learned, and it is activated by pressing and holding Circle in midair, X in the Japanese release.

In Kingdom Hearts II, Glide is a Growth ability learned and upgraded by leveling up Final Form. It is executed by pressing and holding Square while in midair. In Sora's standard form, it costs 3 AP to equip. With Glide LV3 and Glide MAX, Sora is able to permanently stay aloft over flat surfaces.

In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Glide is an ability panel that can be leveled up from Glide LV1 to Glide LV2, Glide LV3, Glide LV4, and Glide LV5 by linking Glide LV+ Ⓛ (グライドアップⓁ Guraido Appu Ⓛ?, lit. "Glide Up Ⓛ") panels, increasing gliding speed. It is activated by pressing and holding Y while in midair.

In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Glide is a movement command exclusive to Ventus that is activated by pressing and holding Circle while in midair. It has a maximum level of 1.

In Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, Glide is a Bonus Booster ability that can be leveled up from Glide Lv.1 to Glide Lv.2. It is activated by holding Y while in midair.

In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Glide is a movement command exclusive to Sora that is activated by pressing and holding B while in midair.
