Glide

The Glide sequence in Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories.

Glide (グライド Guraido?) is a skill introduced in Kingdom Hearts. It allows the user to ride the wind and travel over distances in the air. It can be used as a faster mode of transportation than running, or as an evasion technique.

Mechanics[edit]

Ventus using High Jump, then Glide.

In Kingdom Hearts, Glide is a shared ability. It is activated by holding Circle while in midair, X in the Japanese release.

In Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, Glide is a movement ability that can be used by Sora. It is automatically equipped when learned, and it is activated by pressing and holding Circle in midair, X in the Japanese release.

In Kingdom Hearts II, Glide is a growth ability that costs 3 AP to equip. It allows Sora to glide by holding Square in midair, slowly floating downward in midair until any movement is applied unlike most other versions (which automatically move the user towards the direction they are facing just as Square is held down). Leveling it up decreases the angle of the glide, allowing Sora to stay aloft longer, staying permanently aloft at LV3, as well as increasing his gliding speed with each level. When using Glide, Sora can transition between it and other aerial actions.

In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Glide is an ability panel that can be leveled up from Glide LV1 to Glide LV2, Glide LV3, Glide LV4, and Glide LV5 by linking Glide LV+ Ⓛ (グライドアップⓁ Guraido Appu Ⓛ?, lit. "Glide Up Ⓛ") panels, increasing gliding speed. It is activated by pressing and holding Y while in midair. It cannot be used in certain areas, such as The Grey Area or Station Plaza on Day 357.

In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Glide is a movement command exclusive to Ventus that is activated by pressing and holding Circle while in midair. It has a maximum level of 1.

In Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, Glide is a Bonus Booster ability that can be leveled up from Glide Lv.1 to Glide Lv.2. It is activated by holding Y while in midair. Data-Sora can transition to and from Glide while using other aerial actions, such as Air Slide.

In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Glide is a movement command exclusive to Sora that is activated by pressing and holding B while in midair. Gliding will disable the use of Air Slide until Sora lands.

In Kingdom Hearts III, Glide is a mobility ability that can be used by Sora that costs 1 AP to equip. It allows Sora to glide by holding Circle in midair. It has a high speed and low rate of descent.

In Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory, Glide can be used by holding Circle while in midair. The user will stay at a fixed level without descent while Glide is being used.
