These speed demons will slam right into you if you're not careful. Take them out using long-range attacks, or use contraptions in the field against them. Apparently Glidewinders have a thing for racing—at least if sightings in a certain world are to be believed...

The Glidewinder is an Unversed that is found in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. They serve as both enemies and opponents in the Rumble Racing event.

Design[edit]

A Glidewinder is a seemingly mechanical creature that lacks legs. Its body is wide, bulky, and sports two small headlights in it. Its arms each end in large, conical lance heads, though they can flip around for it to use its clawed hands. Its head is black and partially fused with its body, and has a large turn key sticking out of the top of its head. It can also alter its shape and transform into a sleeker, more compact and aerodynamic form. Glidewinder Unversed come in several color varieties, including blue, yellow, and red versions, though this is purely an aesthetic difference. All types of the Unversed sport the same red eyes set in an angry expression and the Unversed emblem adorned on the front of its body.

In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, all three types of Gildewinders receive palette swaps. The red Glidewinder's main body and lances now become grey, while its lower body and shoulders become bright red with yellow highlights. The blue Glidewinder's entire main body becomes grey, its lances and shoulders become bright blue, and its turn key and headlights become gold. The yellow Glidewinder's main body become black, while its head and lower body become grey. Its shoulders and lances change to bright yellow, and its turn key and headlights become light green.

"Glide" is a reference to the Unversed's speed while "winder" is a possible reference to the wind-up key in its head. "Glidewinder" is also phonetically similar to "sidewinder", which can refer to an untrustworthy person.

Story[edit]

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep[edit]

When Terra first visits Disney Town, he spots this particular breed of Unversed speeding by on the Raceway. When he runs onto the field to face them, they race away, and Terra is nearly run over by Pete.

In Deep Space, while searching for the Wayfinder Stitch lost, Aqua encounters a hoard of Glidewinders that she must fight while riding her Keyblade Glider.

During the Rumble Racing events, including those in the Mirage Arena, the Glidewinder appears as a racing opponent.

Strategy[edit]

The Glidewinder is the fastest species of Unversed in the game. Similar in fighting style to the Magnum Loader, it will circle around a player before charging at them at high speeds. It can also attack players with its claws. Though Terra is strong, Aqua is a better choice, as she can attack by shooting magic arrows with no chance of missing.

Attacks[edit]

  • Spin (スピン Supin?): Uses its claws in a vicious spin attack.
