Light Resistance[edit]

Light Resistance is a stat that appears in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, reducing damage taken from Light attacks. Sora and Riku may increase their Light Resistance by equipping the Light Screen ability (see above). Dream Eaters have a natural resistance or weakness to Light, and Spirits will gain a boost in Light Resistance if certain Deck Commands are added to their recipes, as detailed below:

Command Light Resistance
Shadowbreaker +20
Salvation +30
Spark +10
Sparkra +15
Sparkga +20
Faith +30

Dream Eaters[edit]

Certain Dream Eaters can deal Light-type damage. Dream Eaters that use Light-element attacks are generally resistant to Light damage. Light-element attacks tend to be effective against dark-themed enemies.

Other enemies[edit]

Themes and other appearances[edit]

Main articles: Radar Zap and Engine Gummi

Several recurring elements in the Kingdom Hearts series incorporate Light into their design or conceptualization.

Faith and Salvation are recurring abilities that utilize light, although they do not inflict Light damage outside of Kingdom Hearts 3D. Magic Hour is also an attack involving pillars of light that does not inflict Light damage in its appearances.

The Radar Zap status is associated with Light in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, in which Light Resistance protects the player from receiving a Radar Zap status.

An Engine Gummi in Kingdom Hearts is named after Holy.

Certain weapons are associated with Light. The Oathkeeper is associated with Kairi, who is associated in turn with Light, and its design incorporates the kanji for "light" (光). A number of Roxas and Xion's Keyblades are given names associated with light phenomena, such as Maverick Flare and Twilight Blaze.


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.
