Delayed Action is a pair of Chakrams that can be wielded by Axel in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. It can be upgraded to Delayed Action+.

Design[edit]

The outer wheel of a Delayed Action Chakram is quite thin and has eight spikes on it; four small, simple spikes and four large, ornate spikes. The wheel and small spikes are lilac, while the large, cross-shaped handle is black. The four ornate spikes are shaped like teardrops with a lilac outline, black center, and a red diamond in the middle.

The name, "Delayed Action", is a pun on the phrase "Delayed reaction". This may be a reference to the fact that Delayed Action's combo finisher takes longer to execute than other combo finishers. It may also be a reference to the weapon's ability, Fire Finish, which may take several hits to ignite an enemy.

Gameplay[edit]

The ground combo starts with a slash to the upper left, then a slash to the left again, and it ends with Axel throwing the Chakrams to the left, the weapons encircling him. The aerial combo starts with a slash to the right and then to the left, finishing with a cross slash in front of Axel as the weapons circle around him.
