The Aerial Master is an Emblem Heartless that is found in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.


The Aerial Master is a vaguely humanoid Heartless with black skin and two large, black, curled wings. Its head is spherical with a jagged mouth, with glowing, yellow eyes, and it is mostly covered by a purple helmet. This helmet is adorned with two conical, white spikes on either side, two angular, yellow spirals on its front, and a curled, black antenna on its top. Most of its body is also covered by purple armor, with its Heartless emblem emblazoned on its abdomen. The Aerial Master's legs end in small, white spikes and it holds golden "brass knuckles" lined with white spikes in each hand.

The Aerial Master's name refers to its flying and combat prowess.


The Aerial Master is a powerful, Aero-immune Emblem Heartless which only appears in Agrabah. They will fly out of attack range, during which time Roxas should prepare to dodge any attacks these Heartless attempt with either Dodge Roll or Block. Only when the Aerial Masters hover low to the ground should Roxas attempt a physical attack or to launch a magic spell. Aerial Masters are skilled combatants, however, possessing the most HP out of any member of their Heartless family. They will rush at Roxas, or surround themselves in a damaging, damage-preventing whirlwind. Aerial Masters lastly can use a devastating, long-range punch attack and can send twin projectiles at Roxas. Thus, it is best to follow a hit-and-run strategy, chaining together Dodge Rolls to avoid the Heartless's stronger attacks and only attempting attacks when the Aerial Master floats just above the ground in a non-offensive manner.
