Kingdom Hearts
Heartless born purely out of darkness. Their movements are unpredictable, as they often make sudden moves and attacks.
Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories
A Heartless made from the very shadows of darkness.

The Darkball mostly just bobs through the air, but its random weaving and biting are a nuisance.
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep
A Heartless whose heart has been lost within the darkness.
It teases its prey by teleporting randomly, and surprises them with its chomping attack.
Kingdom Hearts coded
Heartless hewn from the very shadows. Usually they just waft through the air, but they can be annoyingly unpredictable, bobbing around erratically or charging right at you without a moment's warning.
Kingdom Hearts Union χ
Boasting high HP and strength, this sinister Heartless boosts its stats even further and lowers those of opponents to gain an edge in battle.

The Darkball is a Pureblood Heartless that appears in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts coded, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and Kingdom Hearts χ.


The Darkball, true to its name, has a spherical body that is pitch black and streaked with dark blue. Its glowing, yellow eyes are rather small. The inside of its mouth is blue, and the mouth itself is a jagged, toothy opening. This Heartless has three thick, black and blue tentacles with frayed, pink tips sprouting out of its body; two are on its top, and one is on its underside. The Dark Ball closely resembles the Shadow Stalker from Kingdom Hearts II, although the Shadow Stalker has a smoother appearance, overall, and several smaller appendages.

The Darkball's name reflects its spherical shape and its status as a Heartless, a heart corrupted by the darkness.



  • Darkballs reduce themselves to small, purple clouds in order to evade attacks before expanding rapidly to cause damage.
  • Darkballs adopt a "berserk" state and thrash about in place; anyone who is too close receives damage.
  • Darkballs charge forward, biting at their targets.


Darkballs are relatively easy Heartless to defeat; their attacks do little damage, they attack infrequently, and their HP is low. These Heartless teleport from one place to another in a way similar to the Invisible.

Notes and references[edit]
