Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance
When Riku returns to the Nave in La Cité des Cloches, he encounters the Lord Kyroo, who proposes a duel. Upon accepting its challenge, Riku will face off against the Lord Kyroo and its army of Chef Kyroos and Sir Kyroos. If Riku does not defeat the Lord Kyroo within a certain amount of time, the Lord Kyroo will blow a kiss to Riku and retreat.
Sora will then encounter the Lord Kyroo at the Promontory in Prankster's Paradise, where the Lord Kyroo will offer him the same challenge. If Sora does not defeat the Lord Kyroo, the Lord Kyroo will retreat to the Moonlight Wood in Symphony of Sorcery, waiting for Riku. If Riku does not defeat the Lord Kyroo once again, it will retreat yet again, repeating its location and challenging Sora and Riku until they successfully defeat it, whittling down its HP with each encounter.
The Lord Kyroo resembles a bipedal frog, with rotund body and stubby, three-toed limbs. It wields a buckler and rapier, and wears a crown and polka-dotted cape.
As a Spirit, Lord Kyroo is mainly colored green with some shades of yellow and purple, mainly around its limbs. Its crown is colored yellow with pink tones, and its cape is a blueish-purple with yellow polka dots. Paint Guns affect all of its green parts, excluding green on its feet and legs. It also has a pale-yellow underbelly, and its shield is colored yellow with a pink squared symbol in its center with a white-metal rim. The same pattern appears on its rapier's handguard, colored green; the grip is pink while the pommel and guard are silver colored.
As a Nightmare, its primary color is a dark turquoise. Its rapier colored black and white on the grip and handguard, with its shield being yellow and black. Its feet and hands are colored yellow and magenta unlike the rest of its body. The cape is also colored purple with pale-violet polka dots, while its crown is colored green with magenta tones. Its underbelly is colored with a darker yellow.
The boss version of the Lord Kyroo is colored like a Rare Nightmare, with its body, shield background, and rapier pattern glowing the traditional silvery turquoise. Its crown shines silver, and its cape is black with gray polka dots. It is otherwise identical to a Nightmare Lord Kyroo. However, this color scheme is not depicted in the journal, and is not officially designated as a Rare Nightmare.
The Lord Kyroo only appears as a generic Nightmare within certain Portals or in Snowgleam Wood, after defeating the Sir Kyroos at the base of the Flowmotion rail near the snowflake platforms. It is a stronger version of the Sir Kyroos, but is still easy to defeat. The Lord Kyroo will be ignited and start to panic if Fire-type commands are used against it; this allows one to easily press an assault.
A version of the Lord Kyroo resembling a Rare Nightmare also appears as an optional boss in a sidequest spanning multiple worlds. Instead of appearing from a Special Portal, it is first found at the Nave (Riku's side), where it can be challenged to battle. Once the battle starts, it begins summoning many Chef Kyroos and Sir Kyroos to help defend it. If the player character leaves the room during the battle, the battle will reset as if the Lord Kyroo had not been challenged yet. If the Lord Kyroo is not defeated within seventy seconds, it will blow a kiss and flee the battle. Afterward, it will reappear at the Promontory, then at the Moonlight Wood, and then start over at the Nave. However, its HP will remain at the same value between battles. The Lord Kyroo will drop the Lord Kyroo Recipe and grant access to the Link Accelerator Relay Bonus when defeated. In addition, whichever character finishes off the Lord Kyroo will receive an HP Bonus. If gained by Sora, his maximum HP will tie with Riku's; otherwise, Riku's HP will exceed Sora's.
Lord Kyroo is one of the more powerful Spirits in the game, as it is able to dive at opponents with Ribbit Assault and can blow kisses at targets that inflict Confuse. It mainly focuses on Thunder magic, but it can also cast Mini and Curaga, allowing it to be a very powerful support-type party member as well. Its battle patterns are similar to the Sir Kyroo, and it has the same weakness to fire which causes it to panic while burning up. Like the other two Kyroos, Lord Kyroo can also rush to the Sora or Riku's side to block and counterattacks on them.
