A boy who lives in Twilight Town who has a bit of an attitude problem. Once he gets an idea, he has to LIVE it—and Pence and Olette get dragged along for the ride.

There's bad blood between Hayner and Seifer—the town's self-appointed "disciplinarian."
Kingdom Hearts Union χ
A boy from Twilight Town with a bit of an attitude problem.
"Well, I doubt we can be together forever. But isn't that what growing up's all about? What's important isn't how often we see each other, but how often we think about each other. Right?"
—Hayner to Pence, Olette and Roxas

Hayner is a resident of Twilight Town. Hayner is a friend of Pence and Olette (and Roxas, or at least the virtual version of himself) and is also the rival of Seifer. He also appears in Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days alongside Pence and Olette.


Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days[edit]

When Roxas visits Twilight Town while on vacation, he meets Hayner, who had been working on his Grandstander act, along with Olette and also Pence, whom he had already met. Hayner is initially cold towards Roxas, but once Roxas proves himself by doing the Grandstander, Hayner becomes much more friendly.

Kingdom Hearts II[edit]

In DiZ's Simulated Twilight Town, he was Roxas's best friend. His boredom caused him to suggest that the group take a trip to the beach (prompting DiZ and Riku to intervene, as no virtual beach existed). In the Struggle tournament, he faces Roxas in the first round and loses. Hayner holds loyalty and promises highly, and saw through his jealousy when he sees Roxas with Seifer and his emphasis on the promise he and Roxas made to share the winnings of the tournament. His jealousy is short-lived, though, as Seifer withdraws from the tournament and Hayner is moved up to third place, allowing him to share the winnings with Roxas.

In the real Twilight Town, he and his friends don't mention Roxas at all, but seem to recognize Sora slightly, because they had met Roxas in 358/2 Days. Initially, he is somewhat hostile towards Sora, presumably because he, Donald, and Goofy barged in on their usual hangout while exploring Twilight Town upon their release from stasis. Also, he initially refuses to talk to them because they were busy with other matters at the time. However, he warms up to them and goes to see the trio off at the train station.

Hayner, Pence, and Olette attempted to get into the Old Mansion when they discovered that there was an alternate Twilight Town and went there to search for Kairi, but they are attacked by Dusks. However, he, Pence, and Olette help Sora and co. find the way into the virtual Twilight Town.

Hayner is also a competent fighter and is seen facing off against his rival Seifer in the finals of the Struggle competition sometime after Sora and Riku return to their islands.


Hayner has brown eyes, light skin, dark eyebrows, and spiky, blond hair. He wears baggy, camouflage-print capris pants, a short, sleeveless, grey vest, and a black muscle shirt decorated with a white, crudely-drawn skull and crossbones. His shoes are the same camouflage pattern as his pants, but also sport white tips, grey soles, and each has two intersecting, black belts in place of laces. Hayner also wears a white necklace with a yellow "X" charm on it and a brown bracelet on his left wrist with several silver pins in it.


Hayner is impulsive and determined, and is always looking for a new adventure. He is bold to the point of recklessness, once even charging Axel unarmed. He gets bored easily during uneventful times, as demonstrated when he constantly pesters his friends to do something during their summer vacation. Hayner is also easily angered, as shown in the very first scene in Twilight Town when he tells Pence, Olette and Roxas about how everyone labeled them thieves for stealing photos. He thirsts for some kind of recognition, as he is even irked when Roxas defeats him in the semi-final round of the Struggle tournament, leaving Hayner in fourth place (Hayner is soon moved up to third place when Seifer withdraws from the match).
