The Anti Black Coat is a Nightmare Dream Eater that appears in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. He is the physical manifestation of a nightmare that has trapped Sora.


Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance[edit]

The Anti Black Coat appears when Riku tries to wake Sora from his deep sleep. He battles the Keyblade wielder and vanishes upon his defeat.


As his name suggests, the Anti Black Coat wears a black coat. His circular, red eyes are visible from underneath the coat's hood. He bears the Nightmare Dream Eater insignia on his back and magenta flame designs on his sleeves and coattails.


Riku should maintain a hit-and-run/block strategy when fighting the Anti Black Coat, as the Nightmare attacks every time Riku staggers him. He can avoid a majority of the boss's attacks with well-timed Dodge Rolls or Dark Barrier. To damage the boss, he should prioritize using magic commands, but at the right timing, that is when the enemy isn't about to teleport. Curaga is essential during this battle as well, for it can quickly replenish Riku's HP if he is hit by the Anti Black Coat's "Shadow Steal" technique, that can be avoided by either blocking or dodging forward. The Nightmare can use this technique at any random moment, but noticeably when combined with other attacks (Wild Arcanum excluded) or when he is idling, and if he follows this attack by any other one while Riku is getting freed, it can become a guaranteed Game Over. If he gets struck while near the enemy, most if not all of the HP prizes that get scattered around will be grabbed by the Anti Black Coat, which will replenish almost all of his HP. For that reason Riku should avoid using melee attacks or commands. Provided Riku has Once More and Second Chance equipped, the HP orbs that are spread across the battlefield can act as a failsafe in case Curaga is still in cool down or if Leaf Bracer isn't equipped. Riku may as well combine Doubleflight followed by Firaga Burst and Ice Barrage for a temporary safe spot, making him avoid most of the boss's attacks while dealing major damage, as most of said attacks cannot hit Riku, with the exception of Poison Arrow. Shadow Steal can still hit Riku while in midair if he isn't at a sufficient height.

Notes and references[edit]

  1. ^ Riku's HP is kept at 1 for the whole duration of the restraint. His Dream Eaters are unaffected if hit. Their healing abilities can still heal Riku, but the restraint will instantly put his HP back to 1.
