Aero (エアロ Earo?), also called Wind ( Kaze?), is an element that appears in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, Kingdom Hearts III, and Kingdom Hearts Dark Road. The Aero element is associated with the Gust material and the Air-toss status effect.

While other games in the Kingdom Hearts series include wind-type abilities and attacks, such as Aero magic and Tornado, the damage they inflict is usually Neutral.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, the Wind element has two sides. Party members can use Wind-type attacks to inflict Wind-type damage, which enemies can resist. Enemies can use Wind-type attacks to inflict the Air-toss status effect, which party members can resist.
