Howling Moon is a limit that appears in Kingdom Hearts II. Together, Sora and Beast can use the joint attack, Twin Howl.

Mechanics[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts II, Howling Moon is an action ability exclusive to Beast. It costs 3 AP to equip and all of Sora's MP to use. The limit begins with Twin Howl (ツインシャウト Tsuin Shauto?, lit. "Twin Shout") in which Sora and Beast roar at enemies. Afterwards, in the Reaction command slot, Stalwart Fang (ハードファング Hādo Fangu?, lit. "Hard Fang") causes Beast to damage nearby enemies with a sonic wave. Meanwhile, in the Attack command slot, Outcry (ハウリング Hauringu?, lit. "Howling") allows Sora to lunge at an enemy at close distance. The finisher move is Last Howl (ラストシャウト Rasuto Shauto?, lit. "Last Shout"), which causes the duo to unleash a powerful howl in an intense burst of light. During the limit, Sora can move freely. The limit can be ended prematurely through the Stop (やめる Yameru?) command in the Limit slot.
