You may be looking for the plot element.

Light (ホーリー/光 Hōrī/Hikari?, lit. "Holy/Light") is an element that appears in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, and Kingdom Hearts Dark Road. It is opposed to Dark.

While other games in the Kingdom Hearts series include light-based abilities and attacks, such as Faith or Salvation, the damage they inflict is usually Neutral.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, the Light element is exclusive to enemies. Enemies can use Light-type attacks to inflict the Radar Zap status effect, which party members can resist.

Origin[edit]

Holy is a recurring element in the Final Fantasy series. It is the opposing element of Dark. The Holy spell is often the only Holy-element magic available, as well as the only offensive White Magic spell, although there are also a number of weapons and skills that inflict Holy damage.
