Ghostlike Heartless who haunted the clock tower standing far away from Neverland. Fluttering his eerie cloak, he cast a spell to take Sora's heart. Having no physical body, regular attacks were useless, but in the end Sora and company discovered his weakness and prevailed.

The Phantom is an Emblem Heartless that is found in Kingdom Hearts. It is one of the bosses at Neverland. While Phantom is in possession of the Clock Tower, the hourly treasures cannot be obtained.

Story[edit]

Kingdom Hearts[edit]

Phantom emerged from the Final Keyhole after it was opened by the Princesses of Heart, and went straight to Neverland, where it possessed the Clock Tower. Tinker Bell discovered it there, and flew back to the Cabin of Captain Hook's ship, where Sora, his friends, and Peter Pan find her. She leads them back to the Clock Tower, where they are attacked by Phantom. However, after a violent battle, it is defeated.

Design[edit]

The Phantom wears a long, tattered, black cloak with long sleeves that gradiates into a light aqua color from the waist down. It has a long, pointed hood and it does not seem to have a face or body of any kind. Only its clawed, five-fingered hands are visible, but even they seem to be wrapped in the cloak. The apparent source of its power is an orb that contains its heart in the lower section of the cloak. This orb glows in a different color—red, blue, yellow, and white—depending on the type of attack it is currently vulnerable to. The orb can also disappear entirely for short periods of time. The Heartless emblem is displayed on its back.

In Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, the Phantom is largely unchanged, though its cloak is now predominantly white with black sleeves decorated by a flame-like pattern.

The Phantom's name is a reference to its eerie, ghost-like appearance.

Battle[edit]

Attacks[edit]

Technique Attribute Tech Power Guard? Description
Dark Claw None x0.1 0 Blockable (Recoil:20) Slashes with its claws.

Only performed at close range.
Energy Drain Shot (エナジードレイン弾 Enajī Dorein Dan?) Dark x0 20 Negatable (Recoil:0) Shoots a sphere of dark energy that homes in on its target. If hit, the target will take continuous damage up to five times.

Can be avoided by taking cover behind the Clock Tower, by casting Aerora or Aeroga, or by batting away the sphere.
Death Sentence (死の宣告 Shi no Senkoku?) None Inflicts the Doom status on a target. If the target succumbs to Doom, they cannot be revived.

The counter ticks down every time the minute hand reaches the next five-minute mark on the Clocktower, but can be delayed for a minute's duration by casting Stop on the minute hand, which can be repeated. Casting Stop will also delay the Phantom from casting Death Sentence in the first place. Peter Pan is always the first victim, and Sora is the last.


Strategy[edit]

Because it is essential to be able to consistently freeze the clock, the party should prepare to boost their MP regeneration as much as possible. Goofy should be in the party equipped with MP Gift, Sora should equip the best MP-boosting equipment he can, and all characters should have MP Rage, MP Haste, and plenty of Ethers equipped.

The Phantom will only sustain damage when the glowing orb beneath it is visible. Even then, Sora will only be able to damage it in a specific way, determined by the color of the orb. Each time the orb is hit, it will change color. Once struck three times, it will disappear.

Red: Cast Fire
Blue: Cast Blizzard
Yellow: Cast Thunder
White: Perform a physical attack

Following victory, Sora's Stop magic will be upgraded.
