Highwind (ハイウインド Haiuindo?) is a Formchange in Kingdom Hearts III. It allows the user to transform the Keyblade into a halberd, allowing long-ranged thrusts.

In Kingdom Hearts III, Highwind is the first Formchange of the Wheel of Fate Keyblade, associated with Strike Form. It has a base duration of 25 seconds and a maximum combo length of 5. Its attacks are long-ranged and sweeping, allowing Sora to attack with rapid thrusts and slashes. The ground and aerial combos begin with Sora pulling back the spear before thrusting the spear forward, then slashing the spear upwards, followed by a horizontal spinning slash and then twisting upwards while slamming the spear onto the ground. The first combo finisher involves Sora thrusting the spear as ethereal copies of it thrust forwards before thrusting upwards, while the second involves him teleporting upwards, sending the ethereal spears downwards in a circular arc, and finally slamming the ground. Filling the situation gauge while in Highwind allows Sora to Formchange into Storm Flag.

While the Formchange is active in combat, Air Slide can be used on the ground and Aerial Dodge in the air if the respective abilities are equipped.

Highwind uses Artillery-style Magic.


Alongside the abilities from Strike Form, Highwind also has access to Guardbreaker.
