|Though it looks sweet, this is one bad apple. Equip Medals with healing capabilities before taking on this powerful and poisonous fiend.|
The Candy Apple has the basic appearance of a standard Shadow: large, yellow eyes, a black, humanoid body, hands with three clawed fingers, feet without any discernible digits, and a spherical head. A black stem appears at the tip of this Heartless's head; a gold ribbon is tied in a bow around it. A red slime completely covers the Candy Apple's head, save for the area around its eyes and a small area just below them that is shaped like a small, upside-down heart; this "nose" gives the Heartless's head a skull-like appearance that alludes to the appearance of the Queen's poisoned apple when she first creates it in Disney's 1937 animated feature, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
The Candy Apple's name refers to the red slime that forms the skull-like appearance for its head, resembling a red-colored caramel that apples are dipped into.
