The Glacier is a Shield available to Vexen in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. It can be upgraded to the Glacier+.

Design[edit]

The Glacier shield is shaped like an elongated diamond with a semi-circle chunk taken out of each side, causing it to resemble a spike on the Nobody logo. There is a long, "V" shaped piece connected to each of the side corners of the main shield. The inner edges of these side pieces are navy blue and the outer edges are blue-white. The main shield is sky blue with blue-white edges, as well as some cyan-colored markings along the edges.

A glacier is a large persistent body of ice that forms from the accumulation of snow and ice over many years. It is also the French name for the Blizzard spell. Similarly, the spell's upgrade Blizzara is also known as "Glacier +" in the French versions of the Kingdom Hearts games.

Gameplay[edit]

The ground combo begins with a sharp thrust to the left, followed by a jab forward. The shield flies out of Vexen's hands in a sharp thrust forward as a finisher.

The aerial combo begins with a downward thrust, and flies out of Vexen's hands in a 360° slash attack as a finisher, coming to rest in front of Vexen.
