The Beffudler is an Emblem Heartless introduced in Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix. It is a variation of the Hook Bat Heartless. This variant is lighter colored and much more powerful than its "normal" counterpart, and can be found in the Cavern of Remembrance.


A Beffudler's body is small and oval-shaped, with short ears sprouting out of the top of its head. Its eyes are small and glow yellow and its Heartless emblem is on its chest. Its mouth is jagged, and its large wings are attached to either of its sides, each sporting a silver spike close to the Heartless's head. The Beffudler's body is white, except for the tips of its ears and wings, which are black and dark grey. A short, silver, chain connects the Heartless's body to a large, blue hook with a pale yellow base.

The Beffudler's name is a corruption of the word befuddle, which means "to confuse," as does its Japanese name, "Perplex." The two names may be allusions to its question mark-shaped hook.


The Beffudler appears as a more powerful version of its original variant, the Hook Bat, having higher stats, more aggressive behavior, and a new attack. The Beffudler tends to fly slightly high, sometimes spinning in the air before rushing opponents with Spin Attack. It counters with Ultrasonic Attack when damaged.

It can be blocked and lured into displaying its Bat Cry Reaction Command,
