The Prince of Awesome is a joke Sitar that can be wielded by Demyx in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.


The Prince of Awesome "Sitar" is actually a large tennis racket that Demyx holds upside-down. Its rim is blue at the base and gradually becomes lighter in color the closer it gets to the neck of the racket. The strings start white and become progressively darker, and the handle is black.

Its name is a reference to the "Prince" brand of rackets, which have the general shape of Demyx's Sitar, as well as the anime and manga series, The Prince of Tennis.


The Prince of Awesome's ground combo starts with Demyx performing a 360° spinning diagonal slash with the tip of the "Sitar," followed by the same attack, but in the opposite direction. The next move of the combo involves Demyx swinging the "Sitar" by the neck diagonally upward in a baseball bat-like fashion. The combo ends with another 360° spinning attack, after which, Demyx strums the "Sitar", emitting a yellow shockwave which damages any enemies around him.

The aerial combo consists of a downward diagonal slash with the tip of the "Sitar," followed by a thrust upward, and ends with four quick blasts of yellow shockwaves in an outward direction.
