Dark Splicer (ダークスプライサー Dāku Supuraisā ) is a technique that appears in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. It allows the user to teleport around the enemy multiple times while slashing at them.
In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Dark Splicer is a Friendship command that has a reload time of 5 seconds and fills the Command Gauge by 10%. Additional slashes can be added at the end of the technique by inputting two button presses. If a "bullet time" effect occurs, indicating that Vanitas used Dark Splicer at the same time, the player can input the indicated prompts to evade Vanitas's attack and slash him away.
In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Dark Splicer is an attack command exclusive to Riku that uses two slots in the Command Deck and has a reload time of 32 seconds. It inflicts Stop on enemies at the beginning of the attack and deals Dark damage. It also prevents the user from flinching and being knocked back. It grants +3 to Strength and +10 to Dark Resistance when attached to a Dream Eater recipe.
In Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory, Dark Splicer is an ability usable by Riku. It is triggered by activating an Ability Crystal near a grounded foe.
