Keyblade Glider (キーブレードライダー Kīburēdo Raidā?, lit. "Keyblade Rider") is an ability demonstrated in Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, and Kingdom Hearts Dark Road. It allows the user to Formchange the Keyblade into a vehicle to fly, even to other worlds. Terra, Ventus, Aqua, Eraqus, Bragi, Vor, Urd, Hermod, and Xehanort are known users of Keyblade Gliders.

When summoning the Keyblade Glider, Keyblade wielders generally throw the Keyblade into the sky, where it Formchanges into its vehicle mode. However, the specific model of Keyblade Glider differs depending on the user. Terra's Keyblade Glider resembles a bike or speeder, Ventus's is shaped like a winged Skateboard or waveboard, and Aqua's is a two-part bow-and-platform device. The Keyblade wielders can also use their glider to attack: Terra rams his glider into the enemy, Ventus spins his glider around at the target, and Aqua uses the bow of her vehicle as a literal energy bow, firing shots at enemies from far away.

No matter the Keychain attached to the Keyblade when the glider is formed, the glider's design is based on a single Keyblade model — Ends of the Earth for Terra, Wayward Wind for Ventus, and Stormfall for Aqua. However, during the Rumble Racing mini-game, the gliders are given a completely different color scheme.

Keyblade Glider is also the special event for the "Keyblade" and "Secret" Command Boards. When activated, the player boards their Keyblade Glider, and can move to any spot they choose on the board.
