Ansem the Wise is the sage-king of Radiant Garden during Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. In order to protect his people from the darkness, he spent much of his time studying the heart with his apprentices, Braig, Dilan, Even, Aeleus, Ienzo, and Xehanort, but was eventually exiled to the Realm of Darkness when they were corrupted by that same darkness. He himself gained dark powers, renaming himself DiZ, short for "Darkness in Zero", and setting out on a quest to avenge himself against his apprentices. (more...)
Save Points (also called Save Spots) are places within worlds that any playable character can use, with the exception of Sora's Heartless in Kingdom Hearts and King Mickey in Kingdom Hearts II. Upon standing on one, the player can save the progress they have made in their travels, fully restore their HP and MP, and in Kingdom Hearts, organize the party. Save Points are dispersed throughout the worlds, usually every three or four rooms (enemies such as Heartless and Nobodies usually do not spawn in these rooms), as a tracker. There are some exceptions, however, where rooms with Save Points may be infested with enemies—such as the Rabbit Hole in Wonderland and the Palace Courtyard in Castle of Dreams. This Save Point will not appear until all enemies are defeated. (more...)

As a world based on music, all the sounds of battle are replaced with musical notes, and dialogue is only present in specific cutscenes. (more...)

Master Xehanort is the main antagonist of the eponymous "Xehanort Saga". Believing that darkness and light should exist in perfect balance, Xehanort seeks to conquer Kingdom Hearts and recreate the worlds according to his wishes. Through his many different incarnations, including Terra-Xehanort, his Heartless, Ansem, Seeker of Darkness, and his Nobody, Xemnas, Xehanort is ultimately responsible for the series of events that repeatedly threaten the worlds with destruction, including the mass release of Heartless into the Realm of Light, and the creation of the Nobodies and Organization XIII.
