The Crux is a set of Lances that can be wielded by Xaldin in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. It can be upgraded to the Crux+ and the Crux++.

Design[edit]

A Crux Lance's shaft is silver in the center and indigo on the ends, with the two colors separated by small, gold rings. The bottom blade forks into two spikes. The base of the blade and both of the spikes all sport an indigo diamond set in them, and the edges are gold. The base of the top blade is red, and the main blade is shaped like a five-pointed star. The top point has an indigo diamond and gold edges. The center of the blade is indigo, and the four side spikes are gold.

"Crux" is the name of a constellation, also commonly known as the "Southern Cross". The "Southern Dipper" is a Chinese constellation that shares several stars with the Western Sagittarius. "Dragon general" references Xaldin's connection to the Dragoons of Final Fantasy.

Gameplay[edit]

Crux's ground combo starts with a sideways slash using one Lance, followed by a downward diagonal slash using the other Lance. The next attack of the combo consists of Xaldin swinging his Lances from the same starting point upward to two far points in a "V" formation, followed by swinging his Lances above him in a circular formation, like a fan. The combo ends with an attack that consists of Xaldin swinging all six Lances in a circle above his head, resembling helicopter blades.

The aerial combo consists of Xaldin swinging his Lances above him in a circular formation, like a fan, followed by a thrust of all six Lances forwards at once in a pointed, star-like shape.
