Main Symbols with importance to the story[edit]


The Heart is the one of the central plot elements and eponymous for the series title. It's not associated with a speficic group (yet).
Use as a symbol:


The symbol is used for the Heartless in general and specific for the Emblem Heartless. First and foremost it's a crossed out heart, which characterizes the Heartless.
Use as a symbol:

  • symbolizes Riku at least to some point. The Ultimania uses a non crossed out Heartless emblem for him. When possessed by the Darkness, he wears the emblem on the chest.[KH]
  • keychain token of Way to Dawn
  • part of Naminé's drawing
  • different weapons (e.g. Akashic Record or Precious Mushroom)


The Organization XIII uses the symbol and every Nobody is signed with it. It somewhat resembles a heart like the Heartless symbol, the spiked and sharp design is typical for the Nobodies.
