The Annihilation is a pair of Ethereal Blades that can be wielded by Xemnas in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. It can be upgraded to the Annihilation+.

Design[edit]

Annihilation is shaped like an elongated oval. It has a large, teardrop-shaped gap in the middle of the blade. The outer edge of the weapon is completely lined by short spikes, and there is a longer, thinner spike near the tip of the blade that descends into the gap. This Ethereal Blade is black and glows red.

Upon striking a target, the blade creates an X-shaped slash effect in an orange bubble. When landing a combo finisher, the effect becomes bigger and the X is crossed with another slash.

Annihilation is the act of reducing to nothing, which happens to be Xemnas's attribute.

Gameplay[edit]

Annihilation's ground combo is long and elaborate, and is characterized by many spinning strikes. It consists of a quick spinning slice at a short range followed by a right thrust, a slash from left to right, a double slash from right to left, another quick spinning slice, another slash from left to right, and a mid-range double-spin slash with knock-back.

The aerial combo is far simpler than the ground combo. It consists of a double-spin slash, a quick upwards swing, and a quick double-spin slash with knock-back to finish.
