Ghost Drive (ゴーストドライヴ, Gōsuto Doraivu?) is a style and technique which appears in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. It allows the user to channel the power of darkness in order to perform a series of teleporting attacks.
In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Ghost Drive is a Level 2 Command Style exclusive to Aqua that can be activated by using Magnet-related, Thunder-related, or reprisal commands, or combo attacks like Time Splicer while in a Level 1 Command Style. The standard combo consists of a four-hit teleporting combo. The combo finisher is a downward slash, which can be executed without ever striking an enemy. The "Ghost Drive" finish command consists of the user warping around their target while placing spikes of energy from every angle until the target is surrounded, at which point the energy is released as a powerful shockwave. While in Ghost Drive, the Air Slide and Cartwheel commands, as well as their variations, also become teleport techniques.
In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Ghost Drive is a Dual Style that allows Riku to imbue his Keyblade with darkness and blindside foes with a flurry of warp attacks. Like Aqua, Riku has a 4 hit teleporting combo, which hits 3 times, similar to Dark Splicer. The "Ghost Drive" finisher consists of him doing a move similar to Dark Aura, including the stabbing downward finish at the end.

Ghost Aqua Glitch
Due to the unique animations Ghost Drive bestows upon Aqua, there is a minor graphical glitch that can occur while she is in Neverland. If the player happens to perform an Air Slide into one of the jump orbs located near the falls while in Ghost Drive, Aqua's whole model will vanish. The player can still move and jump normally, and Doubleflight shows the magic boost happening. This glitch will persist until the Command Style ends or the player does a second Air Slide to restore Aqua back to normal.
