Nearly spherical in shape, Large Bodies also have massive arms and hands, short legs, huge feet, and tiny heads. These blue-skinned Heartless are clothed in a purple sleeveless bodysuit edged in gold trim; the trim also laces up the front of the body suit across a Large Body's big belly. Along with black curl-toe shoes and black silver-trimmed pants, Large Bodies also boast a massive manacle in purple and silver on each wrist; three links of chain dangle from each of them, and are used as effective weapons when the Large Bodies swing back and forth in one of their attacks. They are topped off by a high silver collar that covers their lower face, and a tiny silver wizard hat that ends in a traditional Heartless curl. As per many other Heartless, Large Bodies have shadowed faces and yellow eyes, but it also has a dark zigzagged mouth.
The Kingdom Hearts Final Mix version of the Large Body has a more muted color scheme that echoes that of the Air Soldier. Their skin is now black and their clothing has changed to brown with orange lacing and dull gold trim.
In Kingdom Hearts III, the Large Body's shoulders are more noticeably spiked.
The Large Body's name references the size of the Heartless's round, bloated body.
Large Bodies are very basic Heartless, although they can only be attacked from behind, making it a little more difficult.
Later in the game, when Sora gains access to High Jump, jump over its head and hit it to save time. Through this, it is also possible to inflict damage right on its head from above.
In a group of enemies, this one is a low priority. It is slow, and cannot do damage unless Sora is close. Magic attacks can be used at any angle to deal damage.
Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories
Since Large Bodies deflect attacks to their front, it's hard to land a hit. Sora/Riku must attack the Large Body from the back. Sora can use magic attacks to deal damage. When a Large Body lands on the ground after jumping, it will shake the whole screen, dealing damage to Sora/Riku if they're on the ground. Jump to dodge the shockwave. Riku's dodge will allow him to avoid the Large Body attack and easily get behind it to strike.
Kingdom Hearts II
When faced in battle, quickly run to its back as the Large Body is immune to frontal attacks. After attacking a few times, quickly run away. It will go into Berserk mode which can cause heavy damage. Use "Guard", then it will be knocked away. It will then come back and slide across the floor. Use "Kickback", followed by "Full Swing"— Reaction Commands and it will be defeated. The Large Body is vulnerable to magic from any angle.

Kingdom Hearts III
The Large Body is relatively basic. All their attacks can be blocked and countered against, and its Body Attack and Rush will break Sora's guard, allowing the use of Risk Dodge. Normally, Large Bodies will be immune to frontal attacks, but if it is sent flying into the air, Sora can attack at any angle without his attacks getting deflected. He can alternatively use any Keyblade that uses Formchanges that have the Guardbreaker ability, such as the Favorite Deputy or Wheel of Fate.
Below 40% HP, the Large Body will become enraged (signified by it turning red) and will use the Rush attack repeatedly. This can be stopped by inflicting it with Freeze.
