Keyblade Glider

Keyblade Glider (キーブレードライダー Kīburēdo Raidā?, lit. "Keyblade Rider") is a Formchange in Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, and Kingdom Hearts III. It allows the user to transform the Keyblade into a vehicle to fly, even to other worlds. Terra, Ventus, and Aqua are known users of Keyblade Gliders. In Kingdom Hearts III, Sora briefly Formchanges the Nano Gear Keyblade into a Keyblade Glider as a transition into the Nano Arms Formchange.

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 mounted like water skis. 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. Sora's Nano Gear Keyblade turns into a Glider resembling Ventus's, but he uses it merely as a transition into Nano Arms.

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, Stormfall for Aqua, and Nano Gear for Sora. 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.
