Kingdom Hearts Union χ
This monster doesn't monkey around—it uses buffs to increase its strength. Take it down quickly before it drives you bananas!
Kingdom Hearts III
These impish chimps swing through the trees and scrabble along walls while pelting you with nuts. Rude! Block whatever they throw and send it right back at 'em.

They'll taunt and tease and try to bait you into attacking. The best response? Attack! They're wide open the whole time, silly monkeys.

The Powerwild is an Emblem Heartless introduced in Kingdom Hearts.

Design[edit]

The monkey-like Powerwild are covered in blue fur, appearing lighter around their head and torso, and darker around their arms, legs and long tails. The center part of their face is pitch-black with jagged edges, and two glowing, yellow eyes can be seen. The inner sections of their round ears are a light purple color, as are their large paws and feet, which end with sharp, black claws. They seem to be wearing golden bracelets and anklets, and the Heartless emblem can clearly be seen emblazoned on their chest.

The Kingdom Hearts Final Mix recolor makes the Powerwilds strongly resemble their simian cousins the Bouncywilds, featuring brown skin tones instead of blue.

The former part of the Powerwild's name is a reference to their quick and powerful attacks. Other Heartless of its family share the latter part of the name, signifying that they are of the same species. It could also be referring to the Heartless's wild, monkey-like appearance.

Strategy[edit]

Kingdom Hearts[edit]

The Powerwild fights in close-combat, as opposed to the range supportive Bouncywilds. It can perform a close-ranged swipe attack, a sliding dash attack to close the distance between it and Sora, and a leaping attack in which it leaps into the air and swings both claws down upon the party. All attacks can be blocked by either defending or a precise swing of the Keyblade. If Sora follows a direct, frontal attack method, the Powewild may dodge by lightly jumping to its left or right, then preparing a quick attack.

If timed correctly, Sora can earn Tech Points for blocking all attacks.[5][6]

Kingdom Hearts III[edit]

The Powerwild is easy to defeat, but can trip newbie players up. They retain their old scratching attack and sliding kick from the original games. They can also throw nuts at Sora if he is far away. These nuts will inflict Stun unless Sora has Stun Protection equipped. However, if blocked, the nuts will instead stun the Powerwild if it hits, leaving them open for attack. To put it simply, blocking and counterattacking is the best way to defeat a Powerwild, though simply charging and attacking can do the trick due to their small amount of HP.
